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 […]

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. […]

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!

Chanel Inimitable Waterproof Multi-Dimensional Mascara

Now this mascara formulation is already a great one, so I knew that my lashes would look good once I tried this mascara. The question remained – would I like the hue?

Bourjois Pump Up The Volume Mascara comes in 5 colours – a navy, plum, green, brown and black. The colour I tried was Plum Balconette 04. The colour of this mascara actually showed up on my dark lashes. The colour was a dark brownish purple colour and I’m sure that it would be more of […]

L’Oreal Telescopic Mascara

Imagine my surprise upon learning that L’Oreal’s Telescopic Mascara is available in Canada before it’s available in the US – though I suspect that it will be launched there soon enough. Of course, I had to try the mascara for myself. The wand of Telescopic is similar to the wand of Lancome’s Fatale – the […]

Rainy Day Mascara

The problem with some waterproof mascaras is that they don’t live up to the quality of their regular counterparts. They either clump or don’t perform at all. Still, good waterproof mascaras do exist and it’s important to have one at this time of year since it’s going to be snowing outside! As I walk through […]

Foundation Trick

A little while ago, I had a tv appearance and had my makeup done by a makeup artist hired by the studio. Now, I don’t know her name but she had worked on movies and tv shows before, but she was still relatively young. The studio where the TV show was being shot preferred the […]
