Viva Glam Rihanna Lipstick ($19 CAN) Intense blue red in a glistening frost finish – can you ever go wrong with that description? Add to that every cent from the purchase goes towards helping women, men and children affected by AIDS. No brainer much? You bet it is!

So, I guess I have a LUSH bath bomb addiction and it can not be contained and therefore, must be shared. I am battling, for what is, the worst winter of my life thus far and truth be told, it sucks. My way of combat is spending a good hour in the gym, followed by a nice, long soothing bathe, which has been bombed by LUSH Bath Bombs. I like to buy in bulk and use as my discretion, whenever… Read more »
Felt completely blah about a product that had been raved otherwise? Don’t you dare feel alone because I am with you. Especially if you are talking about NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer. I was underwhelmed and it left me wondering, is that it, really? I mean, don’t get me wrong, I don’t think it is a completely disappointing product by any mean, but it is not exactly what it is played out to be.
Lush Tender is the night massage bar ($11.95) The most romantic smells in the world? You are asking a jasmine obsessed nut, so quite incontrovertibly my answer would be jasmine! Add to jasmine, some vanilla and ylang ylang and it can’t get more romantic than that. Share these scents with moisture and maybe some massage action with another (or don’t, just keep it for yourself :P) and that shall make a pretty (at this point I hate to sound redundant), but… Read more »
MAC Brick O La Amplified Lipstick Being the shameless MAC lipstick hoarder that I am, I have today MAC Brick O La Lipstick, which for some unknown reason I took many years to acquire. For the love of lipstick, I do not know what took me so long to get a hold of this one which sits comfortably between overbearingly present and too prim and propah. It is just that deliciously perfect for a cold winter morning.
I love making skin treats at home. As much as I love LUSH’s Fresh Face Masks or the high end skin treatments at Sephora, I honestly believe that the best face masks are made in the kitchen. Not only is the cost is next to nothing, it takes much less effort than making a trip to the mall. I had the itch to do indulge in something unabashedly floral and what would be better than rose? While rose moisturizes and… Read more »
Illamasqua Peaked Velvet Blusher ($26 CAN) What is a “velvet blusher” – I don’t know a creamy, smooth blush, maybe? It is technically supposed to be a powder/cream hybrid, but I find it to be mostly a luscious cream blush with a not so dewy finish. Its texture is more or less cream initially and upon application too, but it soon adjusts to be stiffer on your skin, but gives enough flexibility to blend. The blush is easy to work… Read more »
LUSH Lust Solid Perfume ($10.95 CAN) is another way I re-affirm my love for the delicious floral flavour. I am an unabashed jasmine lover and I now I have another way to treat myself to jasmine any time on the go! If you are familiar with LUSH, then you would know that there is no dearth of jasmine products in their line up – the most famous ones being the Godiva Shampoo bar and Flying Fox Shower Gel. The Lust perfumes… Read more »
Benefit Rockateur ($36 CAN) is the latest blush offering from Benefit. I am a huge fan of Benefit’s boxed powders (as they like to call their blushes) – they smell yummy , feel effortless and most of the times are super flattering on most skin tones. I have become somewhat of a collector and though in my many instances I thought oh, there is no way in this world that this colour would suit me and I thought the same… Read more »
Clinique All About Shadow 8-Pan Palette ($40 CAN) is another neutral palette begging for commanding your attention. Yes, we are all swamped with neutral palettes left, right and centre and something tells me that this trend is here to stay – maybe forever and no, the neutral lover in me is not complaining even a bit. Clinique’s newest limited edition offering is a neutral palette made up of eight, mostly neutral-cool eyeshadows.
Ever get home from work so tired that all you can think of is wine? We have all been there, but luckily there is an indulgence which doesn’t come in the form of excess calories. Meet Unison Eye Renewal Mask ($4.99 for two mask sets) my recent comforting addiction. The mask has a gel like structure and is soaked in the most deliciously floral fluid full of hyaluronic acid, collagen and y-pga. So, you just kick back and put the… Read more »
