Archives Are a Good Thing

This bath gel packs quite a punch. A good one of these is hard to find – the colours can be so strange! If she gets her own reality show, I’ll be talking about this girl’s makeup a lot more. This girl‘s show got picked up in the U.S. which means that more of you […]

Olay Definity Penetrating Mousse Cleanser

I love Olay’s mousse cleansers! They are all great, and I highly recommend them because the mousse is cushiony on your skin and it washes everything away so easily! The Olay Definity Mousse Cleanser is a good one because it has little bits in that help exfoliate your skin but very gently! The cleanser is […]

Drugstore vs. Department Store Nail Polish

I flipped open a magazine last night and read that the difference between expensive and cheap nail polish is the staying power. If you really want a polish for everyday, you should get the expensive kind and just use drugstore polish to experiment with colour. To this I say: not true at all. There is […]

(Un)Remarkable

A few months ago, there was a huge craze on Makeup Alley about CeraVe moisturizer. It was said to cure almost every skin illness, and I had quite a few readers email me asking if and when it would be available in Canada. They really wanted to try it. I ended up emailing CeraVe and […]

Artistry Concealer

These days I’m using a concealer by Artistry. I have to confess that I actually hadn’t used concealer in over a year. I’ve just been using a bit of foundation under my eyes, and it really does the trick. But then I stopped wearing foundation and when I didn’t get enough sleep I found that […]

Don’t Buy

I hated the N.V. Perricone M.D. Body Toning Lotion. Not only is it uneffective, but it smells bad, has the consistency of spoiled milk, and its active ingredient, DMAE, has actually been shown to do damage to skin over a prolongued period of time. I tried this for a week and then tossed the rest. […]

Ink by China Glaze

China Glaze’s Ink collection is said to be inspired by tattoo parlors! The collection features a series of super-bright colours and is a fresh collection perfect for the summer. Orange is summer’s “it” colour, and I really love Orange Knockout from this collection. It’s so bright that it verges on neon but never really makes […]

After raving about the quality of China Glaze polishes, I have got to tell you about their Ecollection, inspired by the Green trend. Click on the image below to see the colours – they are true to form and show up pretty similar to how they look in the bottle in only two coats. You […]

China Glaze!

Now, while I always use a base coat and a topcoat with my nail polishes, I know that many of you out there like to put on 2 coats of colour and rush out the door, which means that you need polish that can last at least 5 days before it needs to be re-applied. […]
