MAC Paints and a Reminder!

Any discussion of crease-less shadow is never without the mention of MAC paints. It makes total sense, really. These paints really do last and last.

Fresh Eye Luster

The Fresh Eyeluster is what I first started wearing when I was wearing eye makeup, and I return to this shadow again and again. I have this in Eldorado which is a lovely bronze colour that can be worn sheer for a natural look or opaque if you’d like it to look more metallic. It […]

L’Oreal HIP Pigments

So, I’ve realized that it’s not always possible or useful to wear a primer before putting eyeshadow on. There have been times that I’ve gone on vacation and left my primer at home or there have been times when I’m just not thrilled with adding that extra step into my makeup routine.

Lancome Color Fever Shine

Buttery? Check. Smooth? Check. Creamy? Check! What is it? Lancome’s Color Fever Shine lipstick. Seriously, putting this on is like putting on a lip balm except that there’s colour to it! It’s not as sheer as you’d think – I got excellent colour payoff considering the creaminess of this lipstick and I absolutely love it. […]
