I love this lip gloss. I started buying it I think in 2012. I have two partial tubes left and I don't look forward to the day that they are finished because this is discontinued. If anyone knows of a dupe please post here. This stuff is amazing and I get compliments when I wear it.

Blush - MAC Cosmetics - Sheertone in Pinch O'Peach

Dec/24/2018

I was at the MAC boutique in Yorkdale recently buying a few items. The MUA suggested this blush colour for me and I must admit that I absolutely love it. It's so perfect for my NW13 skin tone that it could have been custom made for me. One thing that I really like about it, besides the lovely colour, is that it's buildable. I can wear it sheer and it looks good, or I can apply a lot …Read more

Blush - MAC Cosmetics - Powder Blush - Dollymix

Dec/24/2018

I love makeup. I wear it every day, am in no way afraid of it and I follow the trends. Having said that, I've had MAC Dollymix for years and will continue to have it for years to come because on my NW13 skin It's a really strong, not very wearable pink. I love the colour and the performance of Dollymix, but on my cheeks I can't get it to that true-to-shade look without create a …Read more

Dec/07/2018

Ski Slope Sweetie is part of the Mariah Carey Holiday Collection from several years ago. In three coats it is completely opaque for me and I always wear it with OPI My Favorite Ornament on my pinky. Just love that combination and it's perfect for this time of year. More gold than white, it's a shimmer with very fine sparkle in it. I noticed as I was applying my HK Girl top coat …Read more

I absolutely love this polish! I resisted buying it for years because for some reason I had convinced myself that it wouldn't look good on me (very pale colours rarely look good on me), but one day I came across it at the superstore and I thought I'd give it a shot because I had recently read some great reviews on it. O.M.G. my skin tone absolutely loves this colour (green version). …Read more

Polishes - OPI - Nail Lacquer - Mod About You

3.0
Created with Sketch.

May/10/2017

I've had Mod About You since last summer, but have just now tried it for the first time. I saw it on a girl at the office and had to ask her what colour it was because it was such a gorgeous shade of pink. Having said that, it was horrible to apply. Its thick and it doesn't self level well. The first coat (over Essie Grow Stronger basecoat) went on streaky and it was hard to move the …Read more

Polishes - Essie - Shop Till I Drop

Created with Sketch.

May/06/2017

I am in love with Essie Shop Till I Drop! I use it with Essie Grow Stronger base coat, then two coats of the polish and finish with a coat of Essie Good To Go top coat. I knew that this polish was a sheer before I bought it so there were no surprises, it is exactly what I wanted. One coat is good if you want just a wash of colour and two if you want more pigment but still sheer. This is a …Read more

Dec/19/2015

In My Santa Suit by OPI from the Mariah Carey 2013 Christmas Collection - what a gorgeous shade of red! Red is my favourite nail polish to wear (it's my favourite colour) and this red is simply stunning. It is perfect for Christmas of course but can be worn year round. Since it was part of a LE it has been discontinued, but can still be found online. I live in Canada and purchased it a …Read more

Polishes - China Glaze - Nail Polish - Ruby Pumps

Nov/01/2015

China Glaze knocked it out of the park with this one!

I have been using CG Ruby Pumps for several years and it is absolutely fabulous. It is a darkish kind of true red with heavy red glitter that is evenly distributed throughout the jelly formula. Two coats to full opacity. It is stunning at all times but particularly stunning when the light hits it, which makes it look like …

Eye Shadow - MAC Cosmetics - Pro Longwear Paint Pot - Painterly

Created with Sketch.

Sep/28/2015

I am reviewing mac painterly as an eye shadow base. I bought this a couple of weeks ago. It's ok but not great. By the end of the day I had some creasing although not as bad as if I didn't use anything at all so it is an improvement over using nothing. However I am also using the Maybelline 24 hour tattoo in barely branded as a base and find that product is far better. As a matter of …Read more
