Brows - Maybelline New York - Define-A-Brow [DISCONTINUED]

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/18/2011

I've been paying for MAC all these years - while all the while, there was the far more accessible, less expensive Maybelline sitting there at several nearby drugstores!
<br>
<br>
Without a tester, however, it's not quick and easy to find your match. I wear MAC Spiked, and thought that Dark Brown in the Maybelline would be too dark, so I bought Medium. While I …

Polishes - OPI - Nail Lacquer - Vodka & Caviar

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/18/2011

I've not ever been a red kind of girl, but that's been changing slowly. Vodka & Caviar intrigued me based on one review I read that said that it's not its color necessarily that makes it a stand out product, but rather, its application. Smooth, self leveling and easy. I hadn't even seen the color in real life, and I was sold.

Makeup Brushes - SHISEIDO - Perfect Foundation Brush

Oct/18/2011

Sold out on Sephora.com, I was elated when I discovered I could get this to my door in two days via sears.ca (with free shipping to boot). I had high hopes it would be the foundation brush to end all foundation brushes.

Alas, it wasn't meant to be.

First, the pros. It IS wonderfully soft, and feels luxurious gliding …

Styling Products - Garnier - Fructis Sleek & Shine Weightless Anti-Frizz Serum

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/26/2011

This has replaced my Frederic Fekkai Glossing Cream and John Frieda serum as my go-to protectant for my long, thick hair, for a couple of reasons. One, it's cheap (approximately $5 CAD for a bottle that lasts me many, many months, in comparison to $15 for the John Frieda, which lasts me only a couple of months). Two, it works incredibly well.

Polishes - RIMMEL - Lasting Finish Pro - Rags to Riches

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/05/2011

So pretty, and is an easy go-to for fall pedicures, for me. Rags to Riches seems to be a newer addition to the Rimmel line (or perhaps I've just never noticed it before). It's a sparkling mossy green with fine golden shimmer.
<br>
<br>
What I've found, however, is that the first coat is super sheer; the second, a little better, but sheer still. The third …

Blush - Cargo Cosmetics - Blush - Tonga

5.0

Sep/05/2011

If you love MAC's Tenderling - that sweet nude pink flush that looks beautifully, perfectly natural against almost any skin tone - but detest the fact it can take three or four swipes over the cheek to obtain any real evidence of color, Tonga is your girl.

Other than the bulky tin, which requires you store it upside down with the name in your face so …

Polishes - Essie - Nail Polish - Fifth Avenue

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/05/2011

I'm so transparent. Inspired by period movies/shows as of late - Pearl Harbor, Mad Men, even the 2011 summer offering Captain America - I've been on a red kick. Essie's Fifth Avenue is hands down my current favorite.
<br>
<br>
This is so gorgeous against my NC25 skin, and is such a stark contrast to my usually neutral clothing. I tend to talk with my …

Hair Styling Tools - Remington - Shine Therapy 1" Conditioning Flat Iron

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/05/2011

After discovering this for under $50 on Amazon, I consider myself absolutely insane for having spent over $200 on other straighteners. This is absolutely incredible, and straightens my hair just as well - if not better - than my previous favorite, the Chi.
<br>
<br>
This straightener goes up to salon standard heat - I use it regularly at 410 degrees (my Chi only went …

Cleansers - Wexler Dermatology - Acnostat Cleanser

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/16/2011

This was recommended to me by a friend. Even though I don't have acne, I was struggling with some skin issues including redness, sensitivity and irritation. I felt like everything I was putting on my skin was just making it worse. I had nothing to lose by trying this.

$16 at Bath and Body Works is quite possibly the smartest $16 I've spent on my face …

Lip Gloss - Dior - Lip Polish Smoothing Lacquer 003

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/16/2011

When Fresh Expert 002 didn't quite work for me, shade-wise, I went back to my Dior counter to find a shade that did - the formula and texture was just too beautiful to pass up, and I was determined to make one of the three shades available work for me.
<br>
<br>
Happily, this one, Glow Expert 003, does. It's a sheer coral that delivers just a little bit of …
