Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Lip Booster

I feel like when some brands come out with a lip balm, they can’t just call it a lip balm, because that’s just… not interesting enough. That’s definitely the case with Make Up For Ever’s Ultra HD Lip Booster.  This gel-gloss  hydrates and preps lips for more makeup.  You can put it on while you […]

New Vita Liberata 10 Minute Tan

I love self-tanner in the summer time.  I don’t bother with it in the winter, but when the weather is warmer, a tan just is a little more forgiving.  It makes everything look toned and skin imperfections just seem to be less obvious. A great way to apply self-tanner is to use one that is […]

Nivea 2-in-1 Moisturizing Primer

For the last little while, Nivea Men’s Aftershave has been a cult product that women have used as primer for their foundation.  Apparently, it absorbed easily and left skin matte and ready for foundation.  Because it was made for men, it was moisturizing but with a finish that was impossible to see in the mirror.

Monika Deol is back with Stellar

If you grew up in the 90’s in Canada, you might have watched Electric Circus with Monika Deol.  Back then, it was a big deal (unusual) to watch someone who is a visible minority host a show on T.V. and she was an icon to us all.  In those days, it Electric Circus offered you […]

New Matrix Air Dry Boho Creams

While nothing beats the finished look of blown out hair, it’s air drying that’s making a comeback this season.  Personally, I love the look of blow-drying my hair, but usually I do let it air dry.  Air drying is more gentle for my naturally dry and curly hair, especially since I end up washing it […]
