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.

Quench!

In the short time after they have been launched, Olay’s Quench products already seem to have become cult favorites. When anyone gets dry skin, they seem to be the product that people recommend. The product line is great – there’s a variety of formulations for different skin types and needs, such as a hand cream, […]

Urban Decay XXX Shine Lipgloss

Urban Decay XXX Shine Lipgloss is great. It’s not sticky, it has beautiful shine to it, and it has a slightly minty flavour but it doesn’t burn your lips. But what I love most of all is the shade Carney. I know what you’re thinking – Carney is described as Cotton Candy Pink: isn’t that […]

For us darker girls, that means visibly flaking skin which, if left untreated, looks horrible when you’re wearing those black tights that are so popular these days. Finding a moisturizer […]

Help Dry Skin – While in the Shower

There’s one product that I insisted on carting back with me when I was in school abroad last year – Olay Body Wash with Body Butter Ribbons. First of all: see the packaging and how the bottle seems to be covered with a swirly design? Well that’s not a design – that’s actually the product […]

Aishwarya Beige Lipstick

Another cross-post. When I was in England, L’Oreal had brought out lipsticks in the signature colours of all their spokespersons. This included lipcolours that had been worn by Penelope Cruz, Milla Jovovich, and of course Aishwarya Rai. They didn’t introduce the colours as a limited-edition product – they were available all year round. Funnily enough, […]
