Perfume of the Day

This morning, I dabbed on Coco Mademoiselle – it’s not too strong and I’ve never met anyone that doesn’t like how it smells so I thought it would be fitting for a day when I’d be surrounded by so many new people. Will it now forever be the smell of a disappointing day? (I’m taking […]

Cancelled

Sigh. I was supposed to leave this morning for NYC but Toronto’s been hit with a massive snow storm and all outgoing flights have been cancelled. I am literally stuck in the city and plan to fly out tomorrow morning.

Beauty Bloggers Brouhaha

On one of the busiest days that I’ve had in a long time, and on the one day that I don’t have access to a computer, beauty bloggers are creating quite a stir in the news world. I could tell that it would be big news when 4 of my friends sent me links to […]

L’Oreal Bare Naturale Setting Powder

Here’s the thing – if you already wear mineral makeup or any kind of powder makeup for that matter, you don’t really need a setting powder. So – why would you want this powder?

L’Oreal Bare Naturale Concealer

In the spirit of continuing mineral makeup coverage, I tried L’Oreal Bare Naturale Gentle Mineral Concealer, a product that’s available at drugstores everywhere now.

Oily Skin

Everybody wants to know what to do with their oily skin. I got two questions about it yesterday, and a reader email asking what kind of foundation would be best for her combination skin. I’ve had oily skin for pretty much my whole life. I used to battle it – I mean, I think I’ve […]

Coastal Scents Blush

A little while ago, I told you about Coastal Scents Mineral Makeup which was finely milled and natural looking. Coastal Scents also has blush – the quality is still good and the colours are nice, but I am finding that the blush has a little too much shimmer for my tastes and I would use […]

Rimmel London Eye Magnifier Mascara Product Review

Rimmel London Eye Magnifier Mascara is so bad that I actually tossed an almost-empty tube in the bin today. The main problem, I feel, is with the wand. The head is made up of very cheap plastic and the teeth aren’t as fine as they should be, which means that you get lashes clumping together […]
