My Makeup Brushes

A reader recently asked me what kind of makeup brushes I used, and as promised, here is the response. A long time ago, I bought a set of brushes from MAC around Christmas time when they sell their gift sets. The reason that I bought them then was because you got a whole bunch of […]

It’s hard for a lipgloss lover like me to really pick a favorite so I went through all the lipglosses I’ve used and loved.

Where to Buy: Chantecaille

L’Oreal Telescopic Mascara

Imagine my surprise upon learning that L’Oreal’s Telescopic Mascara is available in Canada before it’s available in the US – though I suspect that it will be launched there soon enough. Of course, I had to try the mascara for myself. The wand of Telescopic is similar to the wand of Lancome’s Fatale – the […]

TruBlend Whipped Foundation

I finally got my hands on Cover Girl’s Trublend Whipped Foundation. I’ve already mentioned that I like the original version which blended nicely and came in a variety of skin-true shades. Well the new whipped version is just as good. The shade selection is the same which is a relief because finding that perfect shade […]
