• Monthly Giveaways May 2017.

    What was meant to be a monthly giveaway fell a little bit short due to real-life catching up with me. As a result, we missed April’s giveaway completely and I’m starting May much later than I would have liked. I hosted a mini giveaway for Lonely Planet (hope you were able to get it on it!) so I hope this… Read More »

  • The Beauty Anti-Haul.

    A theme that I’ve been seeing recently, especially leading up to the big sale season of the year, is this “Anti-Haul” movement. It started on YouTube where I watched Anna from The Anna Edit talking about her anti-haul, and then Jenny from Geeky Posh writing about a similar theme. The whole idea behind the “anti-haul” movement is really sharing the… Read More »

  • Clarins Summer 2017 Makeup Collection.

    The Clarins Summer 2017 Makeup Collection is so subtle and low-key; I must say I couldn’t have asked for a lovelier collection to get excited about for the season! With three new limited-edition launches, and adorned with summer designs that will make you dream of palm trees, sands between your toes, and a pina colada in your hand, this collection… Read More »

Givenchy Noir Couture Waterproof Mascara.

Recently, the Givenchy Noir Couture Waterproof Mascara ($35, available here) became available at Sephora in Canada. It was like the Gods of Mascara have answered my prayers for a waterproof version of my all-time favourite Noir Couture mascara which I reviewed earlier. A mascara ranks highly on my must-have, and must-wear makeup product when I leave the house. It doesn’t…

Givenchy Le Rouge Lipstick | Review.

I recently come across a red lipstick that I have fallen head over heels on, the Givenchy Le Rouge Couleur Intense in 304 Mandarine Boléro ($38, available here) from the “Les Créations” colour palette. There’s nothing that makes a woman feel more alive, sexy and sassy as a red lipstick. I spoke about getting my first red lipstick a while…

Lush Angels on Bare Skin Cleanser | Review.

The Lush Angels on Bare Skin Cleanser ($9.95, Lush Stores) is the first facial cleanser that I’ve tried from Lush. I actually forgot about this sample for a long time and I pretty much let it sit in my shelf for 3 weeks in my room, where the temperature fluctuated a lot depending on the weather in Toronto at the…

How To Sanitize Makeup!

While cleaning your makeup brushes is an oft repeated message that every girl sticks to, I rarely hear anything about taking the time to sanitize makeup. For the longest time, I did not even know that I needed to ever “clean” my makeup. My epiphany came when I realized that I wanted to apply a lipstick that I haven’t used…

Givenchy Noir Couture Mascara.

My faith in high-end mascaras is renewed with the Givenchy Noir Couture Mascara ($35, available here). I never typically purchase high-end mascaras because when doing the math, I could never justify the price per use of such mascaras. I have been using this for the last couple of months and can really attest to its effectiveness at delivering what it…
