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.

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

I have been eagerly, and anxiously, awaiting the release of the Limited Edition Fall shades of Maybelline Color Tattoo Eyeshadows. I was beginning to think we weren't going to be blessed with their release in Canada until I spotted the brand new display at Shoppers Drug Mart last Thursday.

Rouge Bunny Rouge Silk Aether Long-lasting Cream Eye Shadow in Batiste Grayling ~ Swatches, Photos, Reviews

After what feels like an eternity I have finally tried the Rouge Bunny Rouge Silk Aether Eye Shadow formula. The shade Batiste Grayling is a lovely medium, cool grey which tends to take on a very subtle green tone on my skin. Rouge Bunny Rouge describes the shade as follows:Satin wash of cool, true medium grey; buildable to darker, more opaque and metallic hue of the same colour.I don't find the last statement about it being buildable to a metallic hue to be true. You can indeed build it up for more opaque coverage but the shade
