The moisturizer has a petroleum jelly-like consistency but is very easy to spread and absorbs quickly. This means that […]

Products I Used Today: March 28th, 2007

First, I washed my face with Cetaphil face cleanser and then used Clinique Mild Clarifying Lotion. Foundation: Lancome Teinte Idole UltraEyeliner: Prescriptives Moonbeam Reflective Eyeliner in Beaming Brown (I love the colour of this liner, but it’s so irritating to sharpen!

Pink is the New Red

The pink lip this spring is what the red lip was last fall. Bright pink is the way to go – forget about baby pinks or raspberry shades. You want something bright and eye-catching. There are so many ways to wear the shade – with silver shimmer to cool it down or gold shimmer to […]

Celebrity Products

I admit it. I occasionally read gossip blogs. Reading them is like going through a picture book – tons of great photos without a lot of writing. The attraction to them is similar to that of a bag of m&m’s. You know they’re full of empty calories but they’re oh-so-hard to resist! Anyway, last week […]

Pure and Petal Hair Fragrances

Wouldn’t it be great if you had more control over how your hair smelled? Instead of it just smelling like your shampoo or conditioner, how about it having a fresh citrus smell or it smelling like a lovely bouquet of flowers? Putting perfume in your hair isn’t the answer – with the alcohol content, there’s […]

Where to Buy: Breath Palette, Beauty Buffet

Breath Palette is an ingenious idea – 30 different flavors of toothpaste so that you never get bored of the same old minty taste. The way it works is that you don’t really taste what the flavor is. You smell it. The taste in your mouth is still a nice fresh mint but only after […]
