Feb/05/2014

I've always flirted with the idea of being an all-natural, organic body product loving girl, but have never truly taken the plunge. While I'm not ready to hang up my inorganic make-up and skincare product loving hat yet, I have to say that my first-hand experiences with the multitudinous virtues of coconut oil have indeed made a strong case for green juice loving, natural beach hair …Read more

Makeup Brushes - MAC Cosmetics - #275 Medium Angled Shading Brush

Jan/06/2014

I bought this brush around a month ago. My brows are quite full, and as for alot of people with fuller brows, the distance between my brows and my eyes is quite relatively minimal and as a result, I was looking for an angled brush that could create a flatter, elongated eye look. I find that this brush is quite successful at this task. Prior to this, I had used 217s or 217-esque blending brushes …Read more

This is a special, my-hair-is-a-giant-ball-of-static today hair mask. It's quite pricey for the amount you're getting, but because I've reasoned that this is an emergency treatment, I'm willing to repurchase.

This is a cream like consistency that is a little more loose in formula than other commercial masks I've tried, and it does come out of its tube pretty …

I just finished my bottle of this shampoo, so I thought it would be a good time to review this product.

What's great about this is the smell. It is a wonderful, fresh lavender smell that does not smell generic or artificial in any way. Gorgeous! The lather is also great for a shampoo that has a sulfate product quite low on the list (I don't think this a sulfate-free product …

This is a product that is totally, totally worth the price. As a blow-drying noob who is partial to a blow dried mane, doing my hair is a constant struggle with a regular hair-dryer and brush. The closest I've gotten to a salon-finish is a single time, which I whole-heartedly believe was a total fluke!
When I saw the Babyliss demos on YouTube by various reviewers, I was astounded by …

Lipstick - TOM FORD - Pink Dusk

Apr/16/2013

If there was one item I would buy and use for the rest of my life, it would be Tom Ford's Pink Dusk lipstick. This is a beautiful, natural nude that is an absolute classic, and is the perfect foil for any dramatic eye make-up look or even a simple, everyday 'no make-up make-up look'. It is moisturizing, hydrating and has a gorgeous colour pay-off. It isn't too matte, and it …Read more

Very nice, well made, and dermatologically-tested blush. This is free from most nasties that you would find in make-up products, and it's great to see that product is not compromised at all for positive production values. This adds a nice vitality and glow to your skin, it is great for every day use particularly in warmer weather. Again, a nice shade that I think goes across a large range of …Read more

Blush - NARS Cosmetics - Blush - Exhibit A

Apr/10/2013

The perfect summer blush, in my opinion. This is quite similar to my natural flush (I do turn into a tomato when I blush, unfortunately, and I also go quite pale... it isn't the best look) and applied lightly on the skin- by this I mean a touch-and-tap policy- this has the most beautiful effortless glow. I wear this neutral make-up or a bright lip, a fresh eye, and it just makes you look and …Read more

This is one of those beautiful, unexpected colours to have in your blush collection. I bought this in the beginning of fall, and this became the third blush to be added to my growing collection (I'm up to 5 now, and it seems like alot... but I just love them so much) .
I bought this in the height of fall, and at a reasonable price, it really was the perfect colour to add warmth to my …

What a fabulous set of brushes! I love and use each and every one of these regularly, and I'm extremely glad I made this purchase.
Reasonably priced for 4 high-quality brushes with an excellent, practical case, this collection is totally worth it. Here are my short, individual reviews of each brush:
- Detailer brush: This is a helpful little brush for precise application for …
