Buxom Lip Powder and Matte Lips

New Make Up For Ever Matte Velvet Skin Full Coverage Foundation

The problem with most matte full coverage foundations is that they look obvious on your skin, sometimes even magnifying skin imperfections and texture instead of making skin look smooth.  It’s also difficult to make them look natural because real skin reflects light and matte foundation doesn’t in the slightest. Make Up For Ever’s Matte Velvet […]

It Cosmetics Superhero Liner and Mascara

It’s actually fairly difficult to find an inky black eyeliner and mascara that match, last, and are the blackest black that’s out there.  Bonus points for me if the black and a tiny bit of blue in it so that it brings out the brown of my eyes. Now I can stop looking for that […]

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 […]

Annabelle Edge Lipstick

Annabelle’s Edge collection is inspired by geometry but the Edge lipstick that’s part of the collection is functional too. The lipsticks are in a diamond shape which makes for an unusual lipstick, but also provides lots of sharp corners to draw nice clean lines with.  The Edge lipsticks come in lots of bright colours.  Colour […]

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 […]

CoverGirl Lash Blast

Here’s a picture of the wand that makes Cover Girl’s mascara, Lash Blast, so intriguing. It seems to use the same spiky bristles as the newest mascaras but the wand is huge! The small wand you see on the left is the one for Volume Exact. See how much smaller it is? I usually don’t […]

Little known fact: cosmetics are regulated so that they’re safe for use on the part of your face they’re for.  The tightest regulations are for eye products – which means that anything deemed safe for use on the eye area, is safe for the rest of your face too. I mention this because Make Up […]
