Lise Watier Velvet Matte Foundation Review

I love foundation and wear it daily, but the challenge is always to find something that feels light but covers well and then looks like your own skin. Lise Watier’s Velvet Matte foundation comes in a beautiful glass bottle with a dropper, and gives the most coverage that I’ve ever seen in a liquidy foundation. […]

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 […]

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 […]
