Reader Question: Molton Brown Products

I got the following email from Mr. C: Where can we buy Molton Brown Hand washes in the Toronto Area? I don’t want to buy on-line because my wife has scent allergies, so we need to test them before purchase. Where can we do this? You can get Molton Brown products at Holt Renfrew stores […]

Smashbox Eyeliner Brush

This one’s for the rookies. I tried Smashbox Arched Eyeliner Brush and was thoroughly impressed with it. I usually don’t use liquid eyeliner to line my eyes, and don’t line on top, so I really don’t have experience with the whole lining process, but when I used this brush nobody can tell. The problem that […]

This week I had a question via email from C, who wrote: I was wondering if you could recommend a good grapefruit scented line of body care that might be available to buy online. C, you could order the Grapefruit scented goods from Kiehl’s. They have a body wash and a body lotion, but I’ve […]

Make Up For Ever Single Eyeshadows

Take a look: Make Up For Ever now sells eyeshadows and their compacts separately, so that when you run out of your favourite shade, you can just buy the refill instead of tossing the whole compact out!  That’s actually better for the environment, so I hope more companies are going that way.  You can also […]

Product Overload?

I had to resurrect this article from the archives… because we’re still in the trend of product overload and we don’t need to be… This article has been the talk of the ‘net ever since it was published.

8 Products I Loved in 2017

I love the New Year.  I don’t think so much about what I “accomplished” but more about the memories I made.  More than anything else, my goal last year and this year was to put 100% into home life and most of that doesn’t get documented on social media.  Instead, like a dinner you spend […]

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. The foundation is amazing and it would be awesome for NYE. To begin, it differs from most other […]

Fake Nails: Kiss Gel Fantasy Press On Nails

Guess what?  Not a fan of fake nails or long nails.  I guess it’s because I type on the computer a lot, or because I’ve just never liked the look of fake nails.  They kind of make you seem frivolous?  And … yeah, I’m writing that on a beauty blog, so I recognize the irony […]
