I’ve been sitting on this video for a while – I took it during Fashion Week and finally had time to edit it properly. All the steps are there and I only taped her doing one eye so that the video was more concise. Note that all makeup is L’Oreal and easily found at the […]

Courbe Virtuose – Lancome’s Latest Mascara

I may have found the next mascara that’s “Holy Grail” material. (In case you’re unfamiliar with this term, Holy Grail is when you find something that’s the best of the best, always works for you, and a product that you would buy again and again.

Stila Palettes

Click on the images to enlarge.The Stila Manderin Mist collection is now on counters, and the collection includes a new scent. I’d tell you what it smells like but the one spritz I put on wore off before I got home, so that’s that. It seems that everyone loves the Warm and Cool baked eyeshadow […]

Smashbox Eyeliner Brush

This one’s for the rookies. I tried Smashbox Arched Eyeliner Brush and was thoroughly impressed with it.

Dior Show Mascara

Just when I was about ready to throw in the towel on this whole blue mascara testing project, I ended up trying the Dior Show Mascara in Azure. Wow. Talk about colour. The mascara looked bright blue just like the BadGAL on the wand, and on my lashes, it went on the same exact colour. […]
