Swatch: Taupe Polish

Taupe polish is this season’s mainstay colour. It goes with everything and is fast-becoming a neutral. Here’s a swatch of Yves Rocher’s Taupe polish. Believe it or not, this was just one coat. One coat gave me rich opaque colour which is amazing! Yves Rocher polish quality is fantastic, so if you ever have a […]

Review: Laura Mercier Crème Smooth Foundation

A friend of mine works with a lot of Laura Mercier and she sort of coerced me into trying this foundation—and I must say, I’m happy she did because it’s a fabulous product. I was complaining about how my summer weight foundations don’t sit well on me as soon as it gets the least bit […]

Stila Sheer Color Oil Free Tinted Moisturizer Review

Among my makeup bag stand-bys is a tinted moisturizer.  It’s the one product that makes you look polished without you actually putting on a lot of makeup, and tinted moisturizers do so much – they cover, moisturize, and if they’re really good, they give you sun protection. Stila’s Oil Free version does all of the […]

Travel Must Have: Josie Maran R.E.M.

The latest in my jet-setting bag: Josie Maran’s R.E.M.: Rapid Eye Makeup Pen.  It’s an eyeshadow, eyeliner, and eyeliner brush all in one.  The eyeshadow even comes with its own sponge applicator which is nothing to write home about but does the trick.  I really wanted to like the creamy gel eyeliner but it doesn’t […]

Kardashian Kolors Swatch: My Empire…My Rules

I gotta say that this is one of the more boring colours from the Kardashian collection of Nicole by OPI colours.  My Empire…My Rules is described as a taupe but to me it looks more grey.  The grey is neither dark nor light, and is kind of flat.  I wasn’t a fan but I’m guessing […]

Swatch: Zoya Nimue

Honestly, I thought I was in love with the Zoya Smoke collection because it’s all creams, but I actually love its sister collection “Mirrors” too. The colours are so wearable and pretty though they’re slightly too colourful compared to the nudes we’ve been seeing this season. All the same: Nimue is a lovely steely lilac […]

Swatch – Kardashian Kolor Disco Dolls

Ok people, I have figured out how to make super sparkly polishes such as this one stay on your nails.  Just wear ONE fabulous super sparkly coat of the polish instead of two.  I know, I know, you’re greedy for the sparkles, but trust me, one will look just as good and it will stay […]

Nicole By OPI Kim-Pletely in Love Swatch

I have to say that I’m not entirely thrilled by Kim-Pletely in Love from the Kardashian Kolors collection. I was expecting this to be a nice creamy pink and instead it’s one that has teal shimmer in it. Actually, the shimmer’s not all bad. It’s actually very subtle. But the formula could be better, as […]

Stila Backstage Beauty: In The Light Palette Review

This fall, Stila hits the natural eye makeup trend on the nose by introducing the Natural Eye Shadow Palette. The palette is beyond… and not just because it’s got amazing value for money.  The palette valued at over $120 but retails for $50 and includes a nice mix of wearable matte and shimmer shades.  They […]
