Inside Out Lipgloss

Tarte’s new Inside Out Vitamin Lip Gloss is making big waves. Tarte has teamed up with Borba so that the lipgloss has vitamins that protect your skin and nourish you in case you lick your lips. I don’t know whether this is a great way to get your vitamins or if the gloss does indeed […]

Mineral Foundation

Those of us with medium to dark skin tones often have a difficult time finding any foundation, let alone mineral ones. Still, mineral foundations pose a unique problem – the inclusion of titanium dioxide often means that the foundation shades are too cool to look natural on darker skin tones. Enter Alison Raffaele. Her line […]

Oscar Blandi Jasmine Oil Serum

I love anything that smells of jasmine so I was delighted when I came across Oscar Blandi’s Jasmine Oil Serum. This stuff smells amazing. Just the perfect amount of scent, and guess what?

Cake – in Your Shower

Usually, I steer away from products that smell sweet. Do I really want to smell like I just spent 25 minutes baking in a pre-heated 325 degree oven? No thanks. And then I discovered Cake Beauty. Their smells are not too sweet and when you get a sniff of a Cake product, you’ll know what […]

Pop Beauty Ribbon Gloss

I usually pass right by the Pop Beauty aisle because their products sometimes seem a little “young” for my taste. Well after trying their Ribbon Gloss, I will never be that judgemental again.

Anastasia Brow Fix

Brow Fix is a new addition to the Anastasia line of brow products. I was instantly attracted to this product because I don’t like to use the traditional brow gels. They dry on to your eyebrows and make the hairs feel stiff. Plus, everything I raise my brows, I can feel that the gel is […]

L’Oreal Telescopic Mascara

Imagine my surprise upon learning that L’Oreal’s Telescopic Mascara is available in Canada before it’s available in the US – though I suspect that it will be launched there soon enough. Of course, I had to try the mascara for myself. The wand of Telescopic is similar to the wand of Lancome’s Fatale – the […]

Poreless Skin

I know that no matter what product I use, there’s no way that the size of my pores will physically reduce. No company can convince me otherwise. I have the skin I have and for the most part, I’m happy with it. But sometimes, I do want that smooth poreless finish of my skin. That’s […]

TruBlend Whipped Foundation

I finally got my hands on Cover Girl’s Trublend Whipped Foundation. I’ve already mentioned that I like the original version which blended nicely and came in a variety of skin-true shades. Well the new whipped version is just as good. The shade selection is the same which is a relief because finding that perfect shade […]
