Cristal Pink

Dior always has the cutest compacts each season, and this summer is no different.  I’ve been throwing their Cristal Pink charm compact into my bag because it has a lipbalm that has no colour, and a lipgloss that is the perfect shade of pink. This retails for $65 and comes in Coral or Pink shades.  […]

Neons from Zoya

It’s no secret that neon colours are back in style, and Zoya helps keep you current with their La Di Da collection. I’m going to tell you the truth: the first few times that I tried this collection, I had horrible luck with it. It seemed to chip so easily and I couldn’t get the […]

Fauve by Lise Watier

One of my favourite eyeliners of all time is Lise Watier’s. They have a waterproof formulation that comes in many colours that are rich and true to the eye. Because the liners are waterproof, they stay on all day through rain, shine, sweat or snow, and the best part is that they are not terrible […]

Bamboo Pink

I love how Clinique has been coming up with their latest collections for the past couple of months.  It’s not that they’re shunning trends and beating you over the head with what they think is hot.  Instead, they are trying to make collections that suit their existing product line.  The first of these was the […]

Dior Addict Lip Polish

The Dior Addict Lip Polish was new this summer and was formulated after makeup artists from fashion weeks specified how they wanted lips to look. They would prep lips with vaseline to make them super-smooth and then apply a light layer of lip colour on them. Lip Polish was created to mimic that effect. This […]

New and Improved Nars

If you haven’t tried Nars nail polish in the past, let me tell you that it was not a pleasure to wear.  It definitely need a top coat and a base coat to have any kind of staying power and even then, more often than not, it would end up majorly chipping before the week […]
