Drugstore vs. Department Store Loose Powder

I get asked a LOT about good drugstore products, and I have to say that I recommend drugstore products as much as I recommend department store products. Many times, a drugstore brand has the money to research new technologies and sometimes, one large company owns both drugstore and department store brands. Here are two pictures […]

Urban Decay Naked Ultra Nourishing Lipgloss

It’s been a while since I covered anything from @UrbanDecay but now that I need something more moisturizing, I’m all about this Naked Ultra Nourishing Lipgloss.  I mean, look at the packaging – uber lux, and a hefty tube that lets you see the colour inside. This is Beso, a deep pink that’s glossy and […]

New, Estee Lauder Double Wear Nude Water Fresh Makeup SPF 30

Benefit Dallas

@BenefitCanada’s Dallas Blush is still one of the best blushes I’ve tried – simply because it looks so good on my tan skin and I can take it from summer to winter without trying really hard, and I can even use it as a light contour if I’m just sticking to the hollows of my […]

Revlon Mega Multiplier Mascara

Mascara was the first bit of makeup I started using, way back when. It was easy to use and looked relatively natural, when applied with a light hand, and I didn’t get in trouble for using it. So, great makeup has always meant great lashes, for me, but I struggle to find a mascara that […]

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’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. The Pin-Up Pout lipstick is a satin finish that’s pigmented but lets your natural lip colour show through.  That’s perfect, especially, for natural-looking colours. Here’s Almost Famous […]

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 […]
