OPI’s Nail Envy Line Expands

So the pink in the manicure you see above is actually OPI’s Nail Envy Treatment in Hawaiian Tropic. Truth be told, I’m a newbie to Nail Envy but there’s lots of anecdotal and photographic evidence floating around on the Internets toting its actual magic, and now here’s mine.

Benefit’s “They’re Real” Line Grows

So I’m a huge fan of Benefit’s They’re Real Mascara, and They’re Real Push-up Liner, despite hearing/reading somewhere that the Push-Up Liner is one of their most-returned products because people don’t get it. I get it – nothing could be more convenient than having gel liner that comes with it’s own applicator, but liquid/gel liner […]

Currently Using: Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara

I first got a tube of this mascara back in March, and although I loved it, my issue was that it seemed to smear on me. Despite the fact that it wasn’t perfect, I kept seeing amazing reviews of it on social media, so I was intrigued to try it again. Fast forward to this […]

MAC The Matte Lip

MAC’s Retromatte finish is my favourite kind of lipstick.  It’s a super dry finish, even more dry than the regular matte, that almost stains your lips and doesn’t move at all.

I don’t know how it happens but when there’s a new innovation in beauty, it seems that all the brands are able to jump on board at the same time, even if they’re not owned by the same parent company.  Last year, the innovation was lip glosses that go on feeling like water and then […]
