@EsteeLauder Double Wear foundation is definitely having a moment… again.  I’ve run into so many people who are loving it or are thinking of trying it, and I recommend it because I’m wearing the new Fresh Water version these days!

My Holy Grail of Primers

I first tried Urban Decay’s Primer Potion (eye shadow primer) when I was at the airport. I figured that if it could hold up for an 8 hour flight, then it would be good for everyday too. Well it didn’t let me down. I had often suffered from creasing eye shadow, especially on long days, […]

For those girls who find MAC’s Technakohl liner too expensive (I’ve gone through 3 of them, that’s how much I love it), you should head over to the drugstore and check out Cover Girl’s Smoothwear Outlast Eyeliner which is a fantastic dupe in terms of staying power and ease of use.

Eyeshadow Palette

Buying makeup in bulk can be difficult – I’m talking about the mass palettes and sets available at drugstores and department stores that are often questionable in quality. Fortunately, that’s not always the case. Check out palettes from Starlet Cosmetics.I got my hands on a Theatrical 15 shadow palette by Starlet Cosmetics and it’s got […]

New Products – Backstage at Fashion Week

Last week in New York, I saw a MAC makeup artists with the most amazing lashes. I just had to ask her: were they real? They were, she answered, and all she had done was use MAC mascara that would be coming out in the fall. I haven’t tried it, but the results were positively […]

Napoleon Perdis Peep Show Mascara

Napoleon Perdis’ Peep Show – Madame Fantasia mascara has received some good reviews for a volumizing mascara, but I found it to be too dry. This means that building volume with multiple coats is a little difficult to do. I will say that this mascara is completely clump-free and does make your lashes look nice, […]

MAC Technakohl Liner

I am currently loving MAC’s Technakohl Liner. I have it in Graphblack and Brownborder, but I find myself using the brown one since it’s so dark that it’s almost black. Technakohl is superior to some of the other liners because it doesn’t smudge or fade during the day, but it’s still creamy enough to go […]

New York Fashion Week – ThreeAsFour

Check out the lashes on the model above backstage at the ThreeAsFour show – they are bright blue! Gordon Espinet, the lead creative for this show told me that the look was very wearable and I have to agree with him. The pop of colour is very flattering and so interesting. Gordon and his team […]

New York Fashion Week – Alexandre Herchcovitch

Yesterday I told you that Fall 2008 would be all about pops of colour. The lips would be stained with shades of cerise, plum, berry, and wine. The beauty of a stain is that it’s very difficult to mess up and is so natural looking that it suits everyone! The colour doesn’t have to be […]

Rimmel London Eye Magnifier Mascara Product Review

Rimmel London Eye Magnifier Mascara is so bad that I actually tossed an almost-empty tube in the bin today. The main problem, I feel, is with the wand. The head is made up of very cheap plastic and the teeth aren’t as fine as they should be, which means that you get lashes clumping together […]
