Why is Kids’ Sunscreen so Annoying?!

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 […]

Avene Makes The Best Mineral Sunscreen

Mineral sunscreens.  I feel as if they’re all that anyone is talking about right now and they’re definitely not for everyone because a lot of times they include a high concentration of zinc oxide which goes on very white. But then there’s Avene. Avene is a French brand but it’s available easily at Shoppers Drug […]

The New Powder Foundation from Bare Escentuals

Powder foundations have come a long way.  Forget about being cakey and obviously powdery, today’s powder foundations are light-weight and actually leave the skin glowing instead of totally matte.
