Canadian Beauty News: February 9, 2007

Followups: Last week I mentioned that many perfume companies just weren’t giving out samples the way that they used to. While that’s true for the most part (and especially when it comes to higher end scents) when a company really wants to promote its scents, then samples are to be had. Case in point: Banana […]

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. I tried the Nude Ribbons (not in the picture) and I love all the colours. They’re shimmery without being glittery and not […]

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 […]

I Put Roo in My Do (And I Liked It)

These days, I am loving the Aussie Deeeeep 3 Minute Miracle Moisture Treatment. The conditioner is super thick and makes my hair unbelievably smooth and soft. Everyone should have this conditioner in their bathroom, it’s that good. To top it off, it smells a little like coconut, my all-time favorite scent, so for the three […]

Where to Buy: Kevyn Aucoin

The name Kevyn Aucoin is synonymous with excellent foundations and products that you can’t beat. Unfortunately, though you can order the goods online, it’s difficult to buy makeup without trying it first. It turns out that there’s only one store in Canada that carries the line, and that’s Pir Cosmetics which is located on Bellair […]

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 […]

Canadian Beauty News: Februrary 2, 2007

It’s Friday and that only means one thing: time for Canadian Beauty News! To begin: remember when I wrote about L’Oreal’s Star Secrets Collection? I had said that the Aishwarya Rai shade of lipstick was perhaps the best nude coloured lipstick ever made and I loved it. The colour also sold out within a week […]

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 […]

Quench!

In the short time after they have been launched, Olay’s Quench products already seem to have become cult favorites. When anyone gets dry skin, they seem to be the product that people recommend. The product line is great – there’s a variety of formulations for different skin types and needs, such as a hand cream, […]
