Toners - NUXE - Toning Lotion with 3 Roses (Lotion Tonique aux 3 Roses)

1.0

Jan/28/2014

My sister gave me this because, she said, she really didn't need a toner and another step in her skincare routine, and she got it on sale anyway when our Shoppers Drug Mart was renovating its Beauty Boutique. I gladly accepted it although I really don't like the smell of roses, and used it that same evening after removing my makeup with MAC Cleanse Off Oil and cleansing my face with …Read more

Makeup Brushes - Laura Mercier - Flat Eyeliner Brush

My favorite tightlining brush ever! I wish I hadn't resisted buying it for so long. I have dozens of flat eyeliner brushes, from high end ones to cheap art store ones. Don't believe that the art store brushes do as good a job as this one. They don't. Some of the other brushes I own are too stiff and scratch my eyelids. Others have bristles that are too long, flimsy or bendy. This …Read more

-- For reference, I have blue eyes and pale pink lips. -- Nude Illusion is a beautiful almost neutral ( a little warm) medium toned nude shade, but I prefer a slightly paler one so here is how I use it: Before I go on long motorcycle rides I like to protect my lips from the sun otherwise they burn. I used to apply Neutrogena Pure & Free Baby Sunblock Stick SPF 60+, which whitens my lips, with …Read more

Both Rosy Glow (a medium-toned cool pink) and Nude Illusion (an almost neutral, slightly warm, medium-toned nude) are beautiful shades on their own, but I prefer them slightly paler so here is how I use them: Before I go on long motorcycle rides, I like to protect my lips from the sun otherwise they burn.

Fragrances - Prada - Infusion d'Homme

5.0

Very, very sensual... I enjoy it even more than Infusion d'Iris, the first one, made for women. To me, Infusion d'Homme is simpler, and sexier. I wear both, and although this one, like Infusion d'Iris, lasts longer on my cuff than on my wrist, I will buy it again and again...

Mascara - Smashbox - Bionic Mascara

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/04/2009

Not the worst, but not the best mascara. Bionic is not a good name, it makes you expect too much. Ionic is not bionic, and who cares about ionic on makeup for lashes anyway? The colour is good, very intense, very black, and I can definitely see my lashes when I have this mascara on them, but it does not curl them or hold a curl, and it does not lengthen them or fatten them up enough, if it …Read more

Lipstick - The Body Shop - Colourglide Lip Colour - 14 Pink Ginger

Sep/04/2009

I received a blister pack sample of the new Colourglide Lip Colour in two shades, 14 Pink Ginger and 49 Berry Shimmer, with a little sponge tip applicator. Of the two, PINK GINGER is the darker pink. It has no shimmer but is surprisingly bright and looks like it would be a universally flattering color for women who wear pink l/s. I like a smoky eye though, so maybe I’ll wear this color later …Read more

Sep/04/2009

I received a blister pack sample of the new Colourglide Lip Colour in two shades, 14 Pink Ginger and 49 Berry Shimmer, with a little sponge tip applicator. BERRY SHIMMER or Shade 49 is my favorite. It’s a gorgeous, cool, shimmery, medium pink, full of pigment, and great with my blue eyes and blonde hair, especially blotted where it turns into a soft, starry pink. Love it! Unfortunately I will …Read more

Lipstick - The Body Shop - Colourglide Lip Colour - 54 Pastel Rose

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/04/2009

On my lips, this lipstick, shade and texture, is absolutely perfect as is, nothing underneath, no blotting after application, no gloss on top. A beautiful, shimmery, cool-to-neutral, nude pale pink. Great with a smokey eye. The scent is light and pleasant, and the texture is very smooth. AND the little sticker on the lipstick case says that the lipstick is good for 36 months after opening …Read more
