Review: Klorane Dry Shampoo with Nettle

We love dry shampoo around here, because anything that lets us skip a day or three between shampoos is fabulous. My recent discovery is Klorane’s dry shampoo with nettle, which claims to help control excess oil production after 3 months. Although that’s a claim that I’m still pretty skeptical of, their dry shampoo is undeniably […]

Review: Almay Longwear & Waterproof Gentle Eye Makeup Remover

Almay’s Longwear & Waterproof Gentle Eye Makeup Remover is a dual phase makeup remover similar to Lancome’s Bifacil and L’oreal’s Gentle Waterproof Eye and Lip Makeup Remover . To use these, you shake the oil and lotion layers in the bottle together. As someone who wears waterproof mascara on a daily basis, I rely on these […]

Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lip Tar

Obsessive Compulsive Cosmestics Lip Tars are a 100% vegan and cruelty free range of liquid lipsticks that have a bit of cult following due to their range of many beautiful, vivid colours. The shade I tried is Super NSFW, which is a gorgeous “gold-laced red”. This picture actually doesn’t quite do it justice, a tiny […]

Review & Swatches: Naked Basics

I’m a little late to the party with this palette; it’s been around since late 2012, but I was a little resistant to getting it because I already have so many neutral eyeshadows. Even though I still don’t think this is a must have, I have to admit that this is the palette I end up […]

Thursday Threes: Better Beauty Resolutions

  We’ve already got the basics: wash your face squeaky clean every night, wear an SPF 30 everyday and exercise regularly. Then there’s those we’re not so good at: getting 8 hours of sleep every night, drinking enough water and consuming beautiful food (instead of fries when we’re starved!). Here’s a few of our less obvious beauty […]

Thursday Threes: New Years Eve Must Haves!

I think it was Hugh Hefner that called New Years Eve amateur night. Hey, Hugh might party every night of his life, but for the rest of us, New Years Eve is the perfect, glittery night that comes with its own, built in day off for lounging around. What’s not to love about that? Here’s […]

Thursday 30: Best of 2013

This year, Wynzie and I worked together on the “best of 2013” list and truth be told we kind of had a hard time finding products that we really loved and were still using.   Of course, there was no denying the products that are on the list – we  wouldn’t part with them for anything! We […]

Thursday Threes: Parched Winter Hair

Things we love about winter: Eggnog, cuddly sweaters and nights in front of the fireplace. Things we don’t love so much? Staticy, frizzy and super dry hair (caused by said sweaters and fireplace sitting, as well as freezing wind and snow. Yuck). Here are some of our favorites for keeping your mane soft and silky […]

Thursday Threes: Liquid Eyeliner

Retro pretty cat eyes have been gracing red carpets and runways for a while now (Thanks Katy Perry, Adele and Lana Del Rey). Once you master it, liquid eyeliner is a great way to recreate this chic look. I’m not sure I’ll ever discard pencils and gel liners entirely, but liquids are great for quick […]

Thursday Threes: Gel Eyeliners

We love gel eyeliners. They’re incredibly versatile and are perfect to line your waterline with because they are waterproof as well. These three are all well loved, tried and tested gel liners that you’ll love to take home. They won’t tug on eyelids like pencils will, and generally have a less intense look than liquid […]
