Maybelline Creamy Matte Lipstick – $7-10 CDN Over the years, I have warmed up to drugstore products quite a bit. I remember when I initially started blogging, I would find it offensive to think anything beneath MAC, but now things can’t be more different. I’m always on the look out for the newest drugstore launch and though I am not always impressed with what I purchase, drugstore makeup still evokes much excitement from my end. The latest product which… Read more »

  R&B Hair Moisturizer ($22.95) YAY! One of the best things to happen to my hair, recently. I had been previously insouciant regarding leave in conditioners as they are literally a trap for me to wash my hair a day sooner. Not this one, however! I love how it feels completely dense and rich, but does not end up looking oiled, rather moisturized and lustruous. Also it clears out the kinks in my fine, curly hair with minimum fuss. Since it is… Read more »

MAC Lip Pencil ($19 CDN) Thanks to Kylie Jenner and her overdrawn lips, lipliners are back for good! I’m not complaining, however; my tiny pout could seriously use some help. Lipliners always help tiny lips- remember that! These have been ignored for so long that I barely felt their existence ever since I got into makeup. The only exception was when I wore red lips, who likes bleeding red lips except when its halloween and you are a vampire? Right?… Read more »

  ColourPop Lippiestix  There are numerous reasons to love ColourPop, but its refreshing to see a budget brand come up with an amazing range of unique shades and have quality like woah! My personal favourites are I <3 this, LBB & Leather. I’m not a big fan of the lighter pinks because they are just not meant for my skin-tone, but the lipsticks have fabulous quality, at a very accessible price point!  Maybelline Color Sensational Creamy Mattes  I’m not the… Read more »

  L’Oreal Paris True Match Foundation – $12.98 CDN So, I did not see this one coming. This particular foundation has been around forever and I have also been blogging for almost ever. All along, I thought I was over drugstore foundations, such a snob I am. Well, I had my reasons – most don’t wear well, don’t feel good and I can’t ever find my shade. Then this happened. I think this foundation has been around for a while,… Read more »

Nuxe Reve De Miel Lip Balm – $17 CDN Lip balms and me, we don’t usually get along. Either they are too waxy, wears off too easy, or just sit there with an obnoxious smell.  But Nuxe Reve De Miel Lip Balm, you have my mind blown. Living in a cold, dry climate comes with its shares of problems, dry lips being one of them. I previously used clarified butter, but I ended up eating it before it got to… Read more »

So, I guess I am back from my blogging hiatus and yes, I have a backlog of products to be reviewed. So, I am starting a new “feature” of flash reviews of various products. This time it would be Fresh skin-care. Fresh is a brand which has always intrigued me – they usually have a new spin on ancient ingredients, with beauty recipes from across the world. Who would not be in? Let’s roll! Fresh Lotus Eye Gel ($56 CAN)… Read more »

    Quite a few moons ago, I had the pleasure of meeting Kabuki, a world renowned Make Up Artist with help from Make Up For Ever Canada. The eyeshadows were recently launched then and the trio featured here was picked up by Kabuki, especially for yours truly. The idea was to go full on smokey and he could not have picked better colours to suit my brown eyes and olive skin. A mix of black-gold (ME 624), khaki green… Read more »

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 »

  MAC Taupe Lipstick – CA $19 So, I have quite a brown lipstick complex – hey, I am a 90’s kid. Judge me all you want, but I have always thought it was kind of beneath me, for the lack of better words. But then I met MAC Taupe Lipstick and all was changed for the better. Brown lips are not a full on trend as of yet, but something tells me 90’s are about to make a comeback… Read more »

As the title suggests, this is a travel themed makeup look. Revlon gave me an opportunity to escape to Stockholm with their new launches, and I readily accepted – I have always been a bit of a travel freak, you know! I was provided with a bunch of amazing new products to come up with a look and this is what I came up with! For eyes, it was the new Revlon ColorStay Shadowlinks in Onyx, as an all over… Read more »
