Do It Yourself

It’s not just that I didn’t feel that pure black nail polish was the best colour for my skin tone. It’s also the fact that I didn’t want to be wearing the exact same shade that everyone else was – BLACK. I couldn’t find a colour that was different so I decided to make it […]

Foundation Trick

A little while ago, I had a tv appearance and had my makeup done by a makeup artist hired by the studio. Now, I don’t know her name but she had worked on movies and tv shows before, but she was still relatively young. The studio where the TV show was being shot preferred the […]

MAC Blot Powder

A simple review really: Mac Blot Powder works. It lasts for about two hours and immediately takes the shine from your skin. And don’t stress about the colour either, since they have practically no colour to them. I’m a medium-dark but I know that I could go lighter or darker with almost no difference. Try […]

Bond Perfumes

The Canadian market is so different than the American one, even in a big city like Toronto. I find that it’s not as edgy and up-to-date, and I frequently have problems finding “in” items. For example, you’d think that every single drugstore and spa/salon would have a few different shades of black nail polish, but […]

Moonbeam Reflective Eyeliner

Though I love makeup, it’s rare for me to find something that has the “wow effect”. The “wow effect” is when I try something on and I say (or think) “Wow! That looks really good on me!” Benefit’s Dallas Blush had that effect, and so does this: Prescriptives Moonbeam Reflective Eyeliner in Beaming Brown. I […]

An Oldie but a Goodie

We’ve all heard the wonders of Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer but I hadn’t had the chance to try it until it came to my local Shoppers Drug Mart. Even then, I wondered whether I really needed to add an extra step to my morning routine. Well, it turns out that a primer is what […]

Base Coat

It used to be that you could tell the weekend was ending just by looking at the state of the lovely purple-black polish that coated my nails. A manicure I deem more weekend than weekday, I’d put on the polish on Friday and by Monday it would be half gone. No more. I finally bought […]

Review: Benefit Honey Snap Out Of It Scrub

Recently, I was given a sample of Benefit’s Honey Snap Out Of It Scrub. This scrub wasn’t much to look at so I wasn’t sure whether it would be good or not, but I was pleasantly surprised. The scrub is creamy with finely ground pieces of almond in it. Despite the creaminess, however, the scrub […]

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, […]
