Liquid - SHISEIDO - Synchro Skin Lasting Liquid Oil-Free Foundation

Dec/28/2017

I haven’t written a review on MUA in a long time, but this foundation prompted me to because it’s a HG. (Yay!!!)

I’ve been searching for my foundation HG for literally months and tried at least 30 (including the top selling ones like Armani Luminous Silk, Nars Sheer Glow, Kevyn Aucoin Etherealist, Dior Airflash, Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua, YSL, etc) and was really starting to think that …

Treatments (Face) - Deciem - NIOD Copper Amino Isolate Serum 2:1

Sep/26/2017

I am a pretty big skeptic and will return almost everything and anything if I am unsatisfied or unhappy with a product. (And I have returned several Deciem products that just didn't live up to their claims.) I purchased the small bottle of this copper serum in 1%, for $60 CAD. I figured, even if I can get a full refund (and Deciem does have a pretty amazing return policy - 365 days but you …Read more

Fragrances - Unlisted Brand - Escentric Molecules Molecule 01

Sep/26/2017

I smelled this on a friend, and had to ask her what perfume she was wearing. It was the most incredible scent - clean, sexy and very unique. I had heard of Molecule (ironically, was in Sephora two days ago and a woman came in to ask if they had it), so was intrigued enough to head to Holt Renfrew to try it out.

When I sprayed it on, it initially smelled like car oil, gasoline or like …

Amazing for Rosacea!!

I had the Clarisonic but stopped using it after a month because I was always squeamish about the brush containing bacteria and other nasties. I didn't want to buy a new brush head every couple of months, so when the SA at Murale here in Toronto recommended the Foreo Luna, I decided to try it. I bought the purple one - for sensitive skin. It has made a huge …

Fragrances - JIMMY CHOO - Jimmy Choo EDT

This review is for the EDT.
I haven't purchased a new perfume since Stella McCartney came out with Stella back in 2003 (I think - at least, that's when I bought it). Normally, when the perfume people are waving around their fragranced pieces of paper, I don't usually take one. For whatever reason, when a guy waved a Jimmy Choo card at me, I took it and had a whiff. WOW! I …

Blush - CHANEL - Joues Contraste in Espiegle [DISCONTINUED]

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/04/2012

I have to add my two cents even though there are tons of reviews already. I am a blush addict - I just bought a new one yesterday (Nars Torrid) - I just can't resist blushers! Anyways, I picked up this beauty a couple weeks ago and despite the fact that I probably have around 50 blushers (yeah, I know - I have a problem), this is definitely one of my favourites. It imparts the prettiest …Read more

Blush - SHISEIDO - Luminizing Satin Face Color - RD103 Petal

Feb/16/2012

Have to add my two cents about this fab blush! I am a blush addict, and have too many to count, from all of the major companies. I was out over the weekend and was lemming a new blush and realized I had never tried Shiseido (although I love their eyeshadows and cream eyeshadows are second to none). I picked up this one and was really happily surprised at what a beautiful blush this is. It does …Read more

Lash Treatments - Unlisted Brand - LiLash Purified Eyelash Serum

Nov/17/2009

Yes, this stuff really does work. I've wanted longer lashes forEVER and a couple months ago, paid almost $300 for lash extensions (my husband almost fainted). The lash extensions didn't fulfill my wildest dreams (they were full, but kind of straight, so you couldn't really see them except from the side) and are pretty expensive to maintain so I looked for another solution for my …Read more

Styling Products - Paul Mitchell - Freeze and Shine Spray

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/17/2009

I have been using this hairspray for a very very long time. Every once in a while, I get bored of it and try something new. Two weeks ago, I ran out of this old reliable, and while at the salon after getting a haircut, I decided to try the new Sebastian Shaper Fierce aerosol spray.

Over the next few weeks, I couldn't figure out what was wrong with my hair. It looked kind of …

Oct/24/2009

Wow, wow, wow!!

Ok, first of all, I am a huge product snob. I usually like to use department-store products - I never tend to use products from the drug stores, considering them to be full of petroleum and other cheap fillers.

Having said that, though, the department store brands (and I've used everything from Estee Lauder, Shiseido, Bobbi Brown, etc etc) have usually …
