MAC RetroMatte Fluid Lip Colour

Lips are definitely having a moment right now, and I love it because it means that you can focus on just clean skin and a good lip, and some how the look just seems to come together. Although people might be getting tired of matte lipstick, I don’t think that it’s ever really going to […]

Go-to makeup: Bright Lipstick

I love love love wearing a smoky eye, but with two little kids, I’m finding that I don’t have the same amount of time that I used to have to stand in front of the mirror and work on my lining and contouring.  Especially on a week day.  Especially when I’m being watched by the […]

Laneige Sleeping Masks

At the end of last year, I got a trio of Laneige sleeping masks, including one for the lips which is pure sorcery.  Read my review of it here.  I don’t know why it works so well but it does, and it’s basically now my go-to lip balm because it completely works every single time! […]

Nars Unfiltered I Palette

It’s so hard to not fall in love with a Nars product, but truth be told, I’m having a love/hate moment with blushes right now.  The winter has made me so pale that I feel like any and all blush is so obvious, and I’m liking just a bit of blush as a contour and […]

New Make Up For Ever Artist Acrylip

Bright lips are a definite pick-me-up any time of the year, and I love that brands are experimenting with formulas other than the matte smudge-proof lip products that we saw last year.  Make Up For Ever Artist Acrylip are intensely pigmented paint-type glosses that don’t dry to a matte or stay-put finish.  These are so […]

My Most Favourite Protein Powder

I’m kind of into working out and taking care of myself right now. I aim to hit the weights at least four times a week, and in my need to refuel quickly, I’ve turned back to protein powder. I know people shy away from using it because they think that it tastes bad or that […]

OPI’s New Updated Infinite Shine ProStay

I absolutely swear by the long-wearing primer and topcoat system that is OPI Infinite Shine.  Whether used with Infinite Shine colours or just regular polish, I find that the final effect is that my nail polish really does stay on for a full week with hardly a chip in sight. Of course, when they launched […]

New Narciso Rodriguez for her fleur musc

I’ve been a fan of the original Narciso Rodriguez perfume since 2006!  I still have about half my original bottle left, and I wore it so much that it’s one of the scents that I can immediately identify, even on someone else. Now, there’s a flanker: the Narciso Rodriguez for her fleur musc, and it’s […]

New Dior Capture Totale Dream Skin Advanced Perfect Skin Creator

Oh, how I wish that I had skin so good that all it needed was a little moisturizing, mattifying, glow, and that’s it.  Alas, I am a regular foundation user, and I just can’t quit using foundation.  But, as it happens, Dior’s new Capture Totale Dream Skin Advanced Perfect Skin Creator is perfect for using […]

Aveeno Baby Eczema Care

It’s not often that I write about my kids (they love makeup but are rarely allowed to try anything new) but recently, my youngest – who’s prone to bouts of eczema anyway – got an outbreak after vacation time.  Little rough rashes appeared on her legs, and she couldn’t help but scratch them so it […]
