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 […]

Duwop Payoff Hullabaloo

There has been a great deal of fuss over Duwop’s Payoff on Makeupalley message boards. (If you’ve never been to the site, check it out, it’s a must visit for any makeup lover).

The Smoky Eye Tutorial Video

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.

You could have a holy grail foundation, top coat, blush, […]

MAC Paints and a Reminder!

Any discussion of crease-less shadow is never without the mention of MAC paints. It makes total sense, really. These paints really do last and last. They can also be used as a base to make regular eyeshadow stay on longer. Don’t forget: there’s a live chat today with Eve and her makeup artist. The chat […]

Estee Lauder Projectionist

Today I am sporting the new Estee Lauder mascara, Projectionist (yes, I know that when I saw “new” I’m about a month late, but hey, I just got it!). Estee Lauder (the company, not the woman) says that the mascara wand will give me volume by separating and coating my lashes with a mascara that […]

CoverGirl Fantastic Lash Mascara

Today I’m wearing CoverGirl’s Fantastic Lash Mascara in Blue Black. Snaps to CoverGirl for most accurate colour name – though it looks like a navy on the wand, the mascara itself goes on like a true blue black! That in mind, the formulation of this mascara is very dry – you know how some mascaras […]

Day 4 of L’Oreal Fashion Week – Zoran Dobric

The Zoran Dobric show was another one of my favourites. The look for makeup was quite subtle. Sheer eyeshadow done with just L’Oreal Wear Infinite eyeshadow in 910 Pure Silver. The lip was done using simple L’Oreal Colour Riche lipstick in 714 Blush Scarlette from the L’Oreal Star Secrets Collection. You can see that the […]
