Dior Nail Polish Reviews and Swatches

A wee look at a couple of limited edition Dior nail polishes that I wrote about earlier. Dior Diorette and Lili – one a deep red and the other a peachy-nude.  Both super pretty, super creamy, and perfect. Diorette is a perfect fall colour: Lili is a peachy nude, which is a nice change up […]

The Most Expensive and Best Foundation

…that I’ve ever used. I went to @HoltRenfrewCalgary and got the new Sisley Paris Phyto-Teint Expert Foundation. I’ve used a lot of foundations recently, but this one is really taking the came – and at $160 a bottle, it’s the most expensive foundation I’ve ever had! I’m totally a foundation junkie.  I love how it […]

Dior’s Fall Collection: Rouge Dior Baume

This fall, Dior has thought of our dry dry lips and introduced the Rouge Dior Baume.  Packaged in the same shade blue of its lipsticks, but in a sleeker tube, these baumes are slightly oily, super hydrating lip slicks that leave the lips feeling great. It goes without saying that the staying power isn’t great, […]

Essie Fall 2014 Collection

Fall has been a busy time for me – there’s been more running around than usual and it looks like that’s just not going to change. So although I’ve been neglecting my nails for the last little while (weekly at-home manicures even seem like a bit much these days), now I’ve been spurred into action […]

New Dior Star Foundation

Dewy, glowy skin is what’s in this fall, and whether you choose a powder foundation or a liquid one, the end result should be skin that looks like skin. Dior Star foundation offers all that and much more.  Medium coverage with a satin finish that isn’t shimmery but brightening instead.  The foundation can be buffed […]

If you’re in the mood for the sultry colours of fall, then you need to head to the Lancome counter and check out their Fall collection. Dark and deep shades is what they have, for the lips, nails, and eyes.   My favourite product is the Malachite & Améthyste palette ($54).  It’s amazing because it’s so […]

Gosh Cosmetics Fall Collection

So in my September favourites video, I mentioned two Gosh products that I can’t live without: the eyebrow gel ($15), and a Velvet Touch Lipliner in Antique Rose ($12) that reminds me of Kylie Jenner’s lipcolour.  It’s a serious contender for MAC Whirl, but without the brown, which suits me just fine. Pick both up […]

Nars’ New Powder Foundation

You will have noticed a major focus on new powder formulas this fall, and that’s because the latest in powder technology means that you can get light to full coverage from a powder while still looking like you’re wearing little to no makeup. The latest powder foundations are not cakey and although they have no […]
