L’Oreal Voluminous Lash Paradise Review

So L’Oreal’s Voluminous Lash Paradise is maybe the most hyped mascara of the season.  You’ve probably seen it everywhere being compared to Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara, which itself was a very hyped mascara and worth the coin. Maybe it’s the rose gold packaging which is inspiring the comparisons and that’s probably on purpose. […]

What I’m Using Right Now

It’s time for another edition of “What I’m Using Right Now”! I love using Vichy’s foaming cleanser because it really gets everything off.  I’ve also been using the Philosophy peel scrub because it’s making my face so smooth.  I’ll sometimes use the Avon glycolic peel pad, and then I tone with Caryl Baker Visage’s Hyaluronic Acid […]

Natural Shampoo Perfect for Camping!

Skin Republic is my favourite mask company because they make an amazing foot mask.  It actually has tons of lactic acid in it so that it exfoliates all the dead skin off your feet.  It looks gross as that happens – there’s really no other way to put it – but the final effect looks […]

New Dior Lip Tattoo

I love new technology in makeup, and the latest to come out of Dior labs is the new Dior Addict Lip Tattoo.  These are actually lip stains that are gel based, and work well on lips and cheeks. Because they’re lip stains, they are highly pigmented but slightly translucent so they work with the colour of […]

Robin McGraw Revelation Skincare

Did you know that Robin McGraw, Dr. Phil’s wife, has her own skincare line?  It’s got cute packaging and active ingredients and targeted to someone who wants something different than what’s out there. I think if you’re navigating what to get, it can get confusing to see what products go together and what would help […]
