Make Up For Ever Aqua Matic 4

Take Anything Summer Splashes Your Way with Make Up For Ever Aqua Matic Eyeshadows and Aqua Smoky Extravagant Mascara | Review

When I think of waterproof makeup I immediately think MAKE UP FOR EVER Aqua. Their line of Aqua products is exceptional and never disappoints. I am so excited about these new MAKE UP FOR EVER Aqua Matic Eye Shadow Pencils ($25 CAD). The MAKE UP FOR EVER Aqua Creams are a staple for me both personally and professionally. These new Aqua Matic Pencils are like my beloved Aqua Creams in a super quick and easy to use retractable pencil form. Actually I think they exceed the Aqua Creams waterproof and budgeproof capabilities. When

Meet one of my new obsessions. The By Terry Ombre Blackstar ($43 US). I have been hearing amazing things about these "melting eyeshadows" for the last several years and now I finally see what all the fuss is about. This cream pen eyeshadow contains Tahitian black pearl which is supposed to be rich in fortifying calcium, anti-aging proteins and antioxidant tocopherols, to smooth and perfect eyelids. It also has adhesive polymers for even, waterproof colour.  The two shades I have tested are from the

The AERIN Winter Color Palette reflects the effortless and classic beauty of Midnight Color . The compact is the standard sleek gold AERIN packaging. It comes in the prettiest soft pink suede pouch. The palette includes Quartz, a really lovely soft rose tan blush that is very pigmented and smooth. Then there is Brocade which is a really pigmented and buttery shimmering gold champagne eyeshadow. Midnight Lace is a deep brown cream eyeshadow. So nice to have a mix of cheek and eye products and powder and cream products

NARS Eye Paints1

NARS Eye Paint in Snake Eyes, Transvaal, Mesopotamia and #38 Angled Eyeliner Brush – Photos, Swatches, Review

NARS Eye Paints. A lot of hype or a lot of awesomeness? Well, I may have tested only three of the available ten shades, but from my experience these are pretty darn amazing. The NARS Eye Paints ($29 CAD) are pots of highly pigmented and creamy gel colour that can be used as both an eyeshadow (preferably applied with a finger so your body's warmth aids in blending) or as an eyeliner. When applying as an eyeliner you can pair them with the new #38 Angled Eyeliner Brush ($30 CAD) for a perfectly defined eye. The shades I have

Makeup Wars ~ My Favourite Waterproof Makeup

I love waterproof makeup. Not that I make a habit out of trying to concoct makeup looks that will withstand a day in the pool, but the use of a few waterproof items on a daily basis is the perfect way to ensure fade proof, long lasting looks. Something that is especially important as the hot, sweaty days of summer have already begun the appear. Mind you as I am typing this as it is snowing and blowing outside my window. Excuse me May? Sheesh! Some of my all time favourite waterproof makeup products are: Anastasia Lash Genius

Makeup Wars ~ Favourite Cream and Stick Eyeshadows

Eyeshadows have always been one of my favourite cosmetic items. Your eyes are where you can be the most adventurous with your colour choices. I remember how very excited I was a few years back when I finally had LASIK eye surgery because people would finally be able to actually see my eye makeup. Powder eye shadows will always be my favourite. The gorgeous variation in finishes and shades never ceases to amaze and entice me. While I feel I have far more eyeshadows than any one person should ever need in one lifetime it does not

Estée Lauder Pure Color Stay-On Shadow Paint in Chained ~ Photos, Swatches, and Review

Estée Lauder has a new cream eyeshadow formula, Pure Color Stay-On Shadow Paint, on the beauty scene and it is unique enough to be a stand out for me. Infused with True Vision Technology – a unique concept of wrapping concentrated pigments into a crystalline laminate to create a multidimensional look – color is amplified and magnified with a glowing metallic finish. Mousse-like creme lays down a layer of pure pigments to recreate and redefine eyes, while prismatic light reflecting pearls add dazzle to each shade, for glimmering
