Moisturizers - Boscia - Tsubaki Beauty Oil

5.0

Jul/06/2015

I don't typically write reviews unless I feel very strongly about something and Boscia's
Tsubaki Beauty Oil is something I feel very strongly about.

I bought this on a whim from Sephora without doing any prior research because, to be honest, I was $30 away from VIB and I figured I needed a moisturizer anyway. I've been a big fan of using oils on my face for a long …

Treatments (Face) - Ole Henriksen - Invigorating Night Gel

Sep/09/2013

I got this in the 3 Little Wonders set. I had originally bought it because I had wanted the vitamin C serum but it's hard to pass up a deal like this and I like trying new products. I didn't expect to love it this much but it is definitely my favourite of the three. When I run out (eventually...), I will definitely be purchasing the full size!

I use just a dab of this right …

New edited review from June 2015:

I completely forgot that I had tried this in the past. I bought it again a month ago and it's really lovely! Completely the opposite of what I thought except the colour now: Alaska tends to be a little bit orange on me.

This is really lovely tinted moisturizer! I find that a little bit goes a long way and it proves even, yet natural …

Polishes - China Glaze - Dress Me Up

Mar/23/2012

Firstly, I think it worth mentioning that I'm a big Hunger Games fan. I wouldn't have given this colour a second look had it not been part of the collection. I was on the fence about this colour and ended up buying it on whim because I was really attached to the original name, "Primrose", and its significance. How lame of me! All that being said... I'm SO glad I bought it …Read more

Blush - MAC Cosmetics - Restores Dazzle!

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/18/2012

It's not very often that I buy makeup these days because I feel like I have more than enough makeup and don't like having makeup sitting around because I feel like it'll just expire. That being said, the minute I read that Restores Dazzle was a close dupe for NARS G-Spot multiple, I had to check it out because I'd been lemming the multiple but couldn't justify the price …Read more

Polishes - RIMMEL - 60 seconds Rapid Ruby

Jan/28/2012

I love this colour! It's a rich, deep, blood red. It's pretty much an exact dupe for my HG red polish, Chanel Rouge Fatal. The size and shape of the brush is great as well, I can get the whole nail in just a few strokes. It's also very opaque, so one coat is enough but I do like to put two. There's no streaking or brush marks either. I haven't noticed much chipping or …Read more

Lipstick - NARS Cosmetics - Scarlett Empress

This is a BEAUTIFUL colour! Granted, I have never worn it full force. I like to dab it onto my ring finger, then onto my lips, blot with a tissue, dab again and blot one more time. It leaves a beautiful satiny, rich, jewel-toned berry stain (pretty much totally true to the swatch on the NARS website), and pretty much lasts all day! It's a little drying, so I like to wear a balm underneath or …Read more

Fragrances - Victoria's Secret - Sexy Little Things Noir

This perfume was part of a 7 piece perfume sampler set and it is undoubtedly my favourite out of the 7 (Sexy Little Things Noir, Pink, Dream Angels Heavenly, Love Rocks, Body, Very Sexy, Bombshell). I wouldn't describe it as sexy in the way VS intended, but it's sexy in a very flirty, girly way. I really love this scent, it's quite light and great for everyday.

Blush - MAC Cosmetics - blushcreme ladyblush

Nov/11/2010

I absolutely LOVE ladyblush! I picked it up on a whim one day when I was feeling somewhat blue because the weather was so miserable and I felt drab. While I love my powder blushes and highlight powders, I wasn't getting a fresh, dewy glow on my skin... I looked like I was wearing blush and highlight powder. The SA recommended ladyblush for an in-from-the-cold, natural flushed look and it …Read more

FYI girls, this will be repromoted with the Tartan Tale holiday collection coming out soon. Now onto the review!:

I bought this gorgeous beauty powder at the MAC Venomous Villains unveiling event yesterday and used it today. I am already in love! It gives me a beautiful natural flush AND glow that and it does not look like I'm wearing anything. The cherry on top of all this is …
