Rainy Day Mascara

The problem with some waterproof mascaras is that they don’t live up to the quality of their regular counterparts. They either clump or don’t perform at all. Still, good waterproof mascaras do exist and it’s important to have one at this time of year since it’s going to be snowing outside! As I walk through […]

Lush Shampoo Bars

I’ve mentioned that Lush’s Soak and Float Bar is a great dandruff shampoo, but the fact is that I’m a fan of all their shampoo bars. I notice that these bars clean well but don’t dry my hair out and they all smell so original! Some of you may be concerned that a bar shampoo […]

Um, That’s Not Snow…

Yes, I am talking about dandruff today. I realize that it’s a taboo subject in beauty circles, but we all suffer from it at some point in our lives. It’s either from the cold weather, or from stress, or using a shampoo that’s not great for our scalp. I, myself, once decided to remedy the […]

Johnson’s Baby Oil Gel

The winter season is upon us and although it hasn’t been too cold here in Canada until recently, indoor heating can lead to dry skin. For us darker girls, that means visibly flaking skin which, if left untreated, looks horrible when you’re wearing those black tights that are so popular these days. Finding a moisturizer […]

Dark Eye + Nude Lip

This is a picture of the beautiful Eva Longoria and I just had to post it. This is how a dark eye design is supposed to be done. Notice the pale pale lipcolour and the addition of blush on the cheeks to make her look healthy. The dark eye paired with the nude lip colour […]

Help Dry Skin – While in the Shower

There’s one product that I insisted on carting back with me when I was in school abroad last year – Olay Body Wash with Body Butter Ribbons. First of all: see the packaging and how the bottle seems to be covered with a swirly design? Well that’s not a design – that’s actually the product […]

Department Store vs. Drugstore

This is a picture of a Marcelle compact which was a limited edition that came out for Christmas. Unfortunately, Marcelle’s website doesn’t have a picture of it so this is one I’ve taken myself. I bought this compact as a gift for one of my cousins in India – the colours of the eyeshadow are […]

Note to Self

Part 1: Don’t use conditioner when its first ingredient is mineral oil. This conditioner left my hair greasy and lifeless and I had to wait until the day was up to be able to wash it out of my hair. Part 2: Don’t assume that whatever amenities the hotel provides will be good enough to […]

Aishwarya Beige Lipstick

Another cross-post. When I was in England, L’Oreal had brought out lipsticks in the signature colours of all their spokespersons. This included lipcolours that had been worn by Penelope Cruz, Milla Jovovich, and of course Aishwarya Rai. They didn’t introduce the colours as a limited-edition product – they were available all year round. Funnily enough, […]
