Awesome and Affordable Micellar Waters

Guys, I'm sad to say this but after many years of love and commitment I have broken up with Bioderma Sensibio micellar water. The times have changed, Bioderma. You are no longer running the show. The drugstore and Sephora shelves are lined to the brim with comparable options at cheaper price points that I have been more than happy to explore.

The Little Serum That Could, Part III

Looks like we unintentionally got ourselves a little serum series. The criteria? Small but powerful. We explored a blemish-busting anti aging offering here, a luxe skin-plumping natural serum here, and now it's time for the next contender.

Hot New Lip Product Alert! By Terry Click Sticks

I have a love hate relationship with By Terry - on one hand they have some incredible products that are innovative and luxurious. On the other hand they discontinued my favorite foundation formula and I'm still bitter about it. Nonetheless, I saw that they launched a new lip stick formula and was instantly drawn to it.

This Week, In Lipstick (FALL LIPSTICK BONANZA!)

My lip product addiction is well documented on this platform and I thought I'd keep the obsession alive and share what I've been wearing on my lips over the past week. One new fall lipstick a day keeps the doctor away... orrrr something like that.

Subtle Highlighters That Won't Make You Look Like The Tin Man

These are the products that help me achieve that subtle "glowing from within" look. They are all cream based as I find that cream-based products are the best at achieving the natural "glowing from within" look that I am seeking. None of them are metallic or overly glittery, but they add a beautiful subtle dimension to the cheek and is a great way to freshen up any look.

Review: Dior Diorskin Forever Foundation

I never got around to buying the original Dior Diorskin Forever foundation despite trying it in store multiple times. Since then, this foundation has been reformulated and when I put some of it on the back of my hand I knew it had to be mine. It felt incredibly light and blended easily without settling into the lines on the back of my hand. Shade 021 Linen looked like a good match for my lingering summer tan. Into my cart it went. Read on for my thoughts...

My Favorite Brush Cleanser Ever

Brush laundry: we all hate doing it but it has to be done. Until they invent mini dishwasher-like devices meant to clean your beauty tools, brush washing is a task that we must tackle by hand. Forget the strange textured glove inventions, I do it all by hand.

Tom Ford Nude Dip Eye Color Quad

Is it a “Must-Have” or a “Nice-To-Have”? That is the question.

Arguably, most makeup products can be placed in the latter category, but I’m dramatic. I love my cosmetics more than most people. Today’s post is dedicated to my thoughts on a luxury eyeshadow palette that many fawn over – the Tom Ford Eye Colour Quad in "Nude Dip". The hype was real on this one. So real that I reached into my pockets and shelled out $80 USD for it.

Givenchy Blurring Foundation Balm

Face makeup comes in many different variations – we have foundations, mineral powders, tinted moisturizers, BB creams, CC creams and… balms?

That’s right. Meet the Givenchy Foundation Balm… Teint Couture Blurring Foundation Balm, to be exact. This was the most exciting purchase I made during Sephora’s sale season and it’s time to try it out!
