Texas Lash

I know, I know, you’re thinking: two mascaras, both by Cargo, and both great? How can that be? Why would Cargo do such a thing? But you know what? They have. I’ll be honest, I might not have tried the Texas Lash mascara if it weren’t named after a food I love, and that is […]

I Found the Best Mascara

Some times it can be a little difficult to make yourself even try products when you already have a favourite lying at home that works perfectly well. In this case, I am so glad that I had a little time to kill at Sephora last week and decided to pick up this mascara. I know […]

Hi-Def Makeup

It has been an uber-busy week for us over here at Canadian Beauty, what with post-birthday partying (“…so sorry I could make it to your fete, lets celebrate now”) that has led us into post-post-birthday detoxing. In any case, as we sit here drinking our lemon water, our nails have been filed and buffed and […]

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. […]
