I’ve been Tagged

The Bargainista tagged me and so I am participating in a meme about this blog – perhaps I will answer some questions that have been on some of your minds. 1.What is the story behind the name of your blog? Well – I live in Canada and it was quite snowy outside so that I […]

Smashbox O-Gloss… One of a Kind?

Some time last week, I got to try Smashbox’s O-Gloss. Like the O-Glow Blush that came before it, Smashbox O-Gloss promises to customize its colour to your lips. And of course, what it really does it turn the same bright pink shade no matter who applies it and where they apply it. Want proof? Take […]

New York Fashion Week – Alexandre Herchcovitch

Yesterday I told you that Fall 2008 would be all about pops of colour. The lips would be stained with shades of cerise, plum, berry, and wine. The beauty of a stain is that it’s very difficult to mess up and is so natural looking that it suits everyone! The colour doesn’t have to be […]
