Long Term Relationship

The other day, I was driving around town and I caught of whiff of something really good. Thinking that it might have been Violetta, I raised my wrist to my nose and was surprised to see that it wasn’t that perfume. Then I figured it out – the scent had actually been coming from my […]

Clinique Blended Face Powder and Brush

Clinique Blended Face Powder was a part of the Clinique spring 2008 collection, Nude Blush. The powder comes in 9 colours but the colour that I have is Invisible Blend, and I have to say that it blends in so well that I can’t even see it on my skin. It is a colour that […]

Napoleon Perdis Peep Show Mascara

Napoleon Perdis’ Peep Show – Madame Fantasia mascara has received some good reviews for a volumizing mascara, but I found it to be too dry. This means that building volume with multiple coats is a little difficult to do. I will say that this mascara is completely clump-free and does make your lashes look nice, […]

Bobbi Brown Oil-Free Even Finish Foundation

I now use Bobbi Brown Oil-Free Even Finish Foundation and my love of this foundation has a story behind it.We all have those Mondays. Mine included parking too far away in the middle of the city and having to run for blocks and blocks in high heels and in the rain. It was silly of […]

I stopped using this perfume after someone told me that it reminded her of medicine. It’s women who buy 35% of the fragrances for men, and my readers are in that 35%. This was a great collection – I actually finished 2 lipglosses from it. That is almost unheard of! I still use (and love) […]

Reader Question – Eyeshadow Base

Here’s a reader question I recently received: Hey there. I love your ‘Canadian Beauty’ blog, especially the reviews on the M.A.C. products =) Good job! I have a question regarding eyeshadow bases.

Sunday Funnies – Maybelline for Men

I saw this SNL skit last night and found it hilarious. I couldn’t find a video (the one on nbc.com doesn’t play in Canada) so I’ve posting a transcript instead. Enjoy! [Opens with a group of friends watching a football game on HDTV. They cheer] Jason: Where’s the beer? Andy: Phil’s bringing it. [Knocks on […]

Frederic Malle Perfumes

I found this awesome video about Frederic Malle – watch it. I wish I had had more time in NYC to go through his entire line of perfume, but it just wasn’t meant to be. Next time, perhaps. I do like his system of classifying perfumes. I think that describing it in ways that are […]

MAC Technakohl Liner

I am currently loving MAC’s Technakohl Liner. I have it in Graphblack and Brownborder, but I find myself using the brown one since it’s so dark that it’s almost black. Technakohl is superior to some of the other liners because it doesn’t smudge or fade during the day, but it’s still creamy enough to go […]
