Benefit Bella Bamba ($36 Cdn/ $28 US) is the newest member of the Benefit boxed powders family and turned out to be an instant hit with me. It is a gorgeous watermelon pink that is oh so flattering on tan skin-tones, in fact it will flatter most skin-tones. If you read this blog, you will know that I am a big fan of Benefit’s blushes, but I have to say that Bella Bamba is my favorite out of all the Benefit… Read more »

So, I finally got sick of the drying, oil stripping, so called “moisturizing” drug-store body washes that my mom insists are fabulous (no mom, they are not). I was in the market for a fabulous new bath product and what better than Lush? I wanted something non-drying and uber girly, I looked around the catalogue and picked the pinkest of them all; Rockstar! Retails for $7.95 (Cdn) for every 100 grams. In Lush’s own words, it is “The creamy vanilla… Read more »
Here, I have two shades of Inglot eyeshadows. It is somehow impossible to know which ones I have unless you note down the numbers when you get them. To the best of my knowledge, the left one is Inglot AMC Shine Eyeshadow in 15 and right one is Inglot Eyeshadow in 464. Inglot eyeshadows are simply my favorite. Yes, I do love my MAC eyeshadows and also those Urban Decay ones, but Inglot’s eyeshadows are far superior, both in terms… Read more »
If you read this blog, you know I am making a shift from a gloss girl to a lipstick girl. Certain ones however, keep calling me back; namely NARS. I think NARS are my holy grail lipglosses and for a good reason, they are non sticky, long lasting, moisturizing and the range carries some really gorgeous, wearable shades. Sounds good? Here, I have NARS Chihuahua Lipgloss, which is described as “guava” but on me, turns out to be a milky,… Read more »

Vasanti Magic Liner ( $20 for 0.13 oz) is a clear gel like liner that is supposed to turn any eyeshadow into a liquid/gel liner. The idea is quite novel, in fact, you wont see many popular brands with this particular product. The only one I can think of is, INGLOT’s Duraline, but that is another story all together. In Vasanti’s own words, it is “Abracadabra! This magic potion turns any powder eyeshadow into a long lasting liquid liner. Dip… Read more »
Benefit Girl Meets Pearl ($30 US/ $34 Cdn) is a “soft, golden pink, liquid highlighter”. Damn right, it is a highlighter, people, not the rumoured face primer. Hear it here, it is not a primer, but a highlighter and a good one at that. An extremely good one. I have fallen head over heels. I should stop before this turns into another love letter. Well, I had been looking for a high lighter to cater to my olive skin-tone needs…. Read more »
I was just looking back at old pictures from before when I was a blogger. I just realized I didn’t have a lot of make-up back then. I do remember everything I wore. I am wearing MAC Juxt eyeshadow, Dior crayon eyeliner, MAC Peachykeen blush and Lancome Bolele Juicy Tube.
Hooray, blogger is back. I’m still missing a few posts, but what can we do? Should I move already, I mean should I move already? Hmm. I’ll ponder over it in another time and space. I love the weather these days, we finally get to see the Sun. Yes, it is a rare sight for us Canadians. It snowed till late April, I swear! On my face: Dior Powder Foundation (the name is too damn long) theBalm Time Balm Concealer…. Read more »
