DiorSkin Forever Review

Diorskin Forever Extreme Wear Flawless Makeup came out in 2007, and I’ve gone back to it for a bit because I wanted something that was more coverage and would last a long time for some holiday parties.

Check out this beauty from L’Occitane.  It’s filled with […]

Velour Lashes

I love the look of long long lashes, but when you have little kids around you every time you’re in the bathroom, it can get difficult to really focus and do a winged liner or put lashes on properly.  My kids just love watching me get ready, they’re constantly asking questions, and then they dip […]

Drugstore vs. Department Store Loose Powder

If you exfoliate on a regular basis, you have got to read this article.  The UK (and maybe Europe) has banned the use of plastics in exfoliants, but not North America… could you imagine?  Many high end brands do use natural exfoliants, but they’re still pretty easy to run into.  What do you guys think?

For the Love of Lush

Here’s a little letter in defense of one of my favourite stores – @LushCosmetics. Lush is one of those stores that people either love or hate. I love it. I suspect that the people who hate it just haven’t tried the right product, and yes I’m talking to those of you who don’t like strong […]
