Nars All Day Luminous Powder Foundation

It’s summer, so cream foundations have gone to the wayside, and mostly, my focus these days is sunscreen.  That being said, I’ve been finding that it’s kind of nice to atleast powder your face mid-day before stepping out for lunch or to see a friend, and so I’ve turned back to this powder foundation.  I […]

Bobbi Brown Oil-Free Even Finish Foundation Review

I now use Bobbi Brown Oil-Free Even Finish Foundation and my love of this foundation has a story behind it. We all have those Mondays. Mine included parking too far away in the middle of the city and having to run for blocks and blocks in high heels and in the rain. It was silly […]

Dior DiorSkin AirFlash Spray Foundation

This @DiorMakeup foundation is now a classic – not that it’s not available but because it’s been available for so long and it’s awesome. Although it used to be available in just 4 colours, now it’s available in 11 with even a deep option.  You literally need to press the spray for 2 seconds, and […]

Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer Review

This moisturizer picks up where all the others left off. While some feel too heavy or too much like actual foundations, the Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer literally melts into my skin when I was putting it on. The texture is that soft. The other thing that this tint has going for it is that it’s […]

Nars Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation Review

It’s been a minute since I tried a Nars foundation, and then at Sephora I swatched their latest Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation, and I was reminded of why I love Nars so much.  Not only is the foundation offering variable coverage, but the shade range is awesome.  There are light colours, and the medium/dark shades […]

New Maybelline New York Super Stay Full Coverage Foundation

This year, Maybelline relaunches their Super Stay Full Coverage Foundation.  Ever since finishing up my bottle of the Fit Me matte foundation, I’ve been a fan of Maybelline foundations.  They offer them in skin-true colours and I’ve managed to find shades at look real on my skin. Here’s 220 Natural Beige which was too light […]

Stila Stay All Day Foundation and Concealer

I love me some Stila products.  They actually were the first foundations I bought because they were the only ones that seemed to have shades that looked natural on my skin – they were pricy and only sold at Holt Renfrew at the time, but I kept going back for the tinted moisturizers and wore […]

DiorSkin Forever Review

Diorskin Forever Extreme Wear Flawless Makeup came out in 2007, and I’ve gone back to it for a bit because I wanted something that was more coverage and would last a long time for some holiday parties. The foundation is amazing and it would be awesome for NYE. To begin, it differs from most other […]

Lise Watier Velvet Matte Foundation Review

I love foundation and wear it daily, but the challenge is always to find something that feels light but covers well and then looks like your own skin. Lise Watier’s Velvet Matte foundation comes in a beautiful glass bottle with a dropper, and gives the most coverage that I’ve ever seen in a liquidy foundation. […]

Just Hit Pan on My Favourite Setting Powder from Make Up For Ever

Shoutout to @MakeUpForEverCA’s Ultra HD Microfinishing Powder which is so light and silky smooth that I use it even when I’m not wearing makeup, and so I’ve hit pan on it.  The amount of powders I’ve hit pan on are few and far in between, and the fact that I kept using this and thought […]
