Sothy’s Paris Fall Colour Collection

Here’s a picture of this fall’s new red lip. Pretty, right? It’s the perfect neutral red. Not too blue, and not too orange, just right.  It gives a pop of colour and lots of pigment without too much trying.  It’s matte but not dry, and has amazing staying power.  I loved wearing it and I’m […]

NYX Pin-Up Pout Lipstick

NYX’s new lipstick is super basic but it’s just what we need right now as a relief from tattoo mattes that last and last but don’t look natural.

Dior Lash Primer

I resisted using Dior’s Maximizer 3D Triple Volume Lash Primer for so long because I felt that I couldn’t get the coverage I wanted and so it didn’t make a difference.  Then I figured out how to use it. You simply use the pointy end to get the primer all over the lashes, and then […]

All Done: L’Oreal Brow Stylist Definer

My favourite product that I didn’t blog about, probably because I thought it wasn’t cool enough.  But I like it so good that I’ve used it every single day consistently because it made my brows look done but not fake. What really kept me coming back is the little brush on the end of the […]

Fall Beauty: Beautycounter Tint Skin Foundation

Beautycounter’s Tint Skin Foundation hits all the marks with my skin – it helps it by moisturizing but gives it the great coverage that foundation should. […]

Dior Double Rouge Lipstick

Are you guys into the metallic lipstick trend? I’m not.  I didn’t like it in the ’90’s and I’m not really feeling it now either.  It just doesn’t jive with my aesthetic which goes between matte red to glossy pink to a pop of raspberry. But when Dior came out with Double Rouge, I had […]
