Read the [only] review on here for Frolic and felt compelled to balance out the rating--this is one divinely gorgeous, creamy, flattering spring/summer lipstick, one of my all-time favorites. Factoring out the outrageous price there's nothing not to like. [For reference my light, warm skin tone is Chanel B20, Armani SLF 5, Nars Ceylan.] On me this is the perfect peachy-pink [sparkle-free] …Read more

There seems to be some confusion that this might be limited edition [it's not] or only available in Europe. Ladies, please know it's readily available in Shoppers Drug Mart, I got mine in Toronto, Canada. With that little service announcement out of the way, I have one thing to say--go get it! It's truly an outstanding and unique shadow. I like this better than any of the …Read more

Truly an average mascara, nothing horrible but not worth repurchasing either. I loved the concept, dual brushes for your upper and lower lashes, but in reality it's a bit gimmicky and less effective than I'd hoped.

Pros:

--doesn't smudge, flake or irritate my sensitive, watery eyes
--lasts throughout the day in most weather conditions
--gives …

Would I buy this again? A thousand times Yes!! The packaging isn't sexy or luxe and the comb on the end isn't as effective as a good spoolie brush, but minor quibbles aside this is one fantastic eyebrow pencil! I purchased mine at Shoppers Drug Mart in Canada but I believe it's available at Ulta in the States. Putting aside the next-to-nothing price for a moment, this just …Read more

Misc Beauty Tools - Tweezerman - Deluxe Eyelash Curler - metal

Jul/25/2013

While I hate going against a string of mostly good reviews, hopefully it's valuable to those considering purchasing this to give an alternative point of view. I've not used drugstore eyelash curlers before, this was the first, purchased out of convenience. The brands I have used are Shiseido and Shu Eumura. There is no comparison, unfortunately. This appears to be good value …Read more

Jul/13/2013

This is a no-brainer fab product at a bargain price--especially in this colour, a flattering, neutral light gold that doesn't pull too warm on my NC20/25 skin tone. Similar to my beloved discontinued Femme-Fi powder eyeshadow from MAC. I swipe it on over UDPP and blend with a finger for a quick n' easy natural eye, or layer powder shadows on top [it plays well with others!] for extra …Read more

Apr/23/2013

I won't be wearing this colour but it deserves a good rating for ease of application and full, smooth opacity after applying one or two coats. I do love OPI's wider brush and smoother consistency than many of my Essie colours. Dutch Tulips is just not my colour--although it appeared pinky-red in the bottle, on my nails it's more of a true, blue-based red against my NC20-ish skin …Read more

Eye Shadow - Annabelle - Haute Chocolate Trio Eyeshadow

Dec/11/2012

I'm a little surprised at the rave reviews for this trio, which IMHO is completely nothing special, and I'm a neutral-lover. First, the trio pictured is not Haute Chcolate. The 3 shades in the HC trio are all cool-toned browns, 2 mattes and one with perceptible glitter. The lightest shade is a pretty matte, pale mocha/taupe, too dark to be a highlight shade on my NC/NW 20-ish skin …Read more

I received this powder compact as part of a Bzz Agent campaign, along with the CoverGirl & Olay Tone Rehab Foundation. [reviewed separately.]

Pros:

Packaging: CoverGirl got it right this time, the packaging is sleek and understated, a dark purple compact with silver accents. This compact has a much more elegant, quality look and feel to it than other CG compacts …

Sep/16/2012

I received this foundation and the Cover Girl & Olay Pressed Powder as part of a recent BzzAgent trial. I've read some of the reviews and hope people will first sort by their skin type and/or tone, otherwise products can be so subjective based on your skin type.

I have dry/combo skin--very dry under-eyes and cheeks, normal to oily in the t-zone. I find it's best for …
