Treatments - Dior - Creme Abricot Nail Cream

Firstly, the price is ridiculous but it really does work. I've used just about every cuticle cream/balm/oil out there and nothing really helped until this. It smells like vintage makeup and it's super tacky in texture and it's my new favourite thing.

Palettes - Bobbi Brown - Brights Eye Palette Spring 2009

While I didn't purchase this I did play around with it while purchasing a pot rouge. This just smacks of Coastal Scents palettes to me. I think for anyone intrigued by bright colours the 88 pans from CS for less than a quarter of the price are a far better value!

Gels/ Soaps - Dove - Unscented Beauty Bar

5.0

Jan/06/2009

I recently had my first ever eczema flare up on the tops of my hands. I was pretty certain my hand soap was causing the problem and asked my pharmacist for a recommendation. She said to use Unscented Dove soap bars and a really good moisturizer (I've been using Aveeno Baby Soothing Relief Moisture Cream) and the combination has completely calmed my skin down. These do have a scent or odour …Read more

Fragrances - Estée Lauder - Youth Dew

I don't care if Grannies wear it. I love it. I'm sure part of my love is nostalgic as my mom had the dusting powder in her bathroom cupboard for years; so to me, all things makeup have a Youth Dew smell about them. I have the EDP and the oil and I love them both. I don't wear them as often as I'd like though...

Fragrances - Robert Piguet Parfums - Fracas

Gah! I don't even like white florals. They tend to induce headaches and smell fecal on me. That being said, Fracas has to be the best white floral I've ever smelled--and I can wear it. The only negative would be the lasting power as others have said. I bought the rollerball version from Sephora so perhaps the EDP spray would be louder/stronger? Either way it doesn't matter because …Read more

Palettes - Coastal Scents - 88 eyeshadow palette

5.0

Nov/20/2008

I saw this on MUA, checked out the YouTube reviews and decided to give it a try. Shipped quickly and all in one piece to Canada.

If you love playing around with colour or want to experiment with colour I think this is the way to go. I love my palette of MAC tried and trues but I love that I have this to mix with my staples. These are the best inexpensive eyeshadows I've found and …

Makeup Brushes - MAC Cosmetics - #187 Duo Fiber Face Brush

Sep/16/2008

I couldn't figure out the best way to use this until I saw a You Tube video of a girl using this brush with her BB Pot Rouge. I was having a hard time applying my pot rouge with my hands too so discovering I could use this brush for it has made all the difference! So for me, I'd have to say I love this for cream blushes!

Moisturizers - La Mer - Creme de la Mer The Moisturizing Creme

Jul/03/2008

I had always wanted to try this cream and then after reading Paula Begoun's negative reviews about it I lost my lemming until Holt Renfrew was giving away complimentary samples. I went down, received my sample and instructions on how to apply it, got home and opened the jar and smelled.....Nivea Creme. To me this has the same smell and texture of plain old Nivea Creme in the blue jar. I used …Read more

Fragrances - Estée Lauder - Sensuous

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/02/2008

I was in the mall on my lunch break today and saw the display for this fragrance and thought I'd try it out on the paper card first. Lauder fragrances remind me of my grandmothers and as such I'm pretty sentimental about them but find them hard to wear personally. With the recent exception of Bronze Goddess and its predecessor. The top notes of Sensuous reminded me so much of my beloved …Read more

Skincare - Body - Bio Oil - All Products

Jun/05/2008

Oh dear....well I feel like I should start by saying that I like using cleansing oils and oils to moisturize and I'm not afraid of putting oil on my face. My skin is quite normal and not much irritates it so I didn't hesitate to use this on my face when I purchased it due to the great reviews. It's two days later and I have a smattering of *7* pimples on my face. For the record …Read more
