The Basics

What you see here is a picture of an eyeshadow trio that I’ve come to use on a regular basis. It’s by Annabelle, and the colours are such that they go with absolutely anything and everything. Good quality eye shadow, and lasts a really long time even without a primer.

MAC MetalX

MAC MetalX line has been out for a week now, and the highlights are the cream shadows. These shadows have the texture of mousse and provide intense colour, only the way a MAC product can. What I love about the shadow is that a little goes a long way. Favourite way to use it? As […]

Canadian Beauty News: September 28, 2007

Happy Friday, loves. It has come to my attention that the launch dates for the newest MAC collections have been pushed back. Matte Squared (the collection of eyeshadows) was on counters yesterday, and also new to the MAC counter was Plushlash, the newest MAC mascara. Both these items will be part of the permanent MAC […]
