Bonjour Beauties, I only have a sneak peek of this fabulous palette called Too Faced Sweet Dreams at the moment because of my apparent busy-ness, and lack of creative juices flowing to write up a review which this beauty deserves. It is 2:00 AM you see, and I had a long day. There are only pictures for now, the review should be up sometime next week. If you have been eyeing this for a long time, to cut long story short,… Read more »
The Body Shop 4-Step Smoky Eye Palette in Golden Brown ($28) is part of their winter trend make-up collection and consists of four eyeshadows in the warm shades of brown and gold, a mini eye definer and mini eyeshadow brush. It is a basic smoky eye recipe, which is pretty much fail safe for the holiday parties. Pair a classic brown/black smokey eye with pale blush and red lips and you are good to go!
If you are having a good skin day, then be sure to skip foundation. Even though I love foundation, I realize a lot of the love was unnecessary. I mean, I do think foundation is important, but sometimes, it ruins photographs, doesn’t match perfect, or at its worst, makes you look like you are wearing cake and butter frosting (I’d rather just eat it, you know?). So when you are having a good skin day, do skip foundation and see… Read more »
MAC Humid Eyeshadow ($18/$14 for refill) is described as an intense green with shimmer with a frost finish. It is one of the best greens for fall/winter, in my opinion. It is not your average attention grabbing green, unless you use it as an all over lid color, in which case it is. I use it to intensify my crease in most cases; it makes the perfect ingredient for a green smokey eye. Even though it is dark, it is… Read more »
China Glaze Eye Candy 3-D Glitters Collection is a holiday collection inspired by Marilyn Monroe. Today I will swatch and review three of the shades in this collection; Some Like it Haute (Graphite grey with holographic glitter), Blonde Bombshell (Glistening multidimensional fold flecks) and Love Marilyn (Vivacious red with shimmering silver particles).
Rouge in Love will be available in 24 shades, each one of the shades has its own name, its own STORY and are inspired by different MOMENTS AND MOODS of a modern and stylish young woman. As a result, the colour palette is divided into THREE love moments of the day: JOLIS MATINS, BOUDOIR TIME and TONIGHT IS MY NIGHT,each offering a different makeup effect. ▪ Jolis Matins: Fresh and light shades, tone-on-tone pearl particles for sheer effet. ▪ Boudoir Time: Fun and flashy shades, more pigmented….

I would be honest and say upfront that this is not a review, but an introduction. A few weeks ago, I got an email from Topbox.ca asking if I would be willing to talk about their sample subscription service. I thought, sure, why not? I personally love the idea behind sample subscriptions, but I had my fingers burnt twice (but we’ll just not talk about it). The thing is, if you are going to charge money for samples, they better… Read more »
Being a hot single iconic celebrity is hard enough. Just ask Hello Kitty; some say she is too cute to handle. Matchmakers in Cosmeticsland had given up. Then one day, in the humble Club Monaco purse of a very busy beauty editor, she met Tweezerman. Now Tweezerman is not your average male celebrity. Being the committed method actor he is, he doesn’t live the life of sex, drugs & rock-n-roll. He is very rare for his breed; steady, simple, bring… Read more »
Who knew that The Body Shop could do a fragrance so good? With a heady blend of musks on top, heart and base and little notes of Turkish delight, baby orchid and Chantilly cream here and there, this one is a winner! If you like sweet and sensual fragrance, you will definitely dig White Musk Libertine. Ok, so you know that this one clicked with me big time, but I was taken away by how sweetly sensual this one is; it… Read more »
LUSH Cosmetic Warrior Fresh Face Mask is a mask meant for break out prone skin, but I tried it regardless. I had heard many great things about it from friends and wanted to find out for myself. I have to say, even though I do not have break-out prone skin, this mask still did great things for my skin. It left my face as soft or maybe even softer than a baby’s bottom. I had been taking a lot of… Read more »

Annabelle Smudgepaints ($10.95) are well, something else! I have never come across such a product. These are eyeliners, eye paints, and overall, fabulous little helping hands for a killer smokey and cat eye! I personally am all over their gooey texture; these are so soft! Needless to say, these apply smooth. Considering these are also eye paints and meant to be smudged, they better, right? I love them as a gel-liner, the colour is vibrant, applies smooth and stays put… Read more »
