COVERGIRL Plumpify Mascara Review

The latest mascara release from COVERGIRL has resulted in another wonderful mascara being added to my mascara drawer. Yes I have a drawer. Just a little drawer in my acrylic storage, not a giant drawer of mascara in my IKEA unit! The beauty industry has really been upping it's mascara game lately. I find myself in the unusual position of loving the majority of mascaras I test. Two years ago that would never have been the case. Anyways, back to the COVERGIRL Plumpify Mascara. What really makes this mascara stand out for me is it's

Benefit They’re Real! Dual Purpose Tinted Lash Primer = The Perfect “No Makeup” Makeup Lashes

Available this month is the new Benefit They're Real! Dual Purpose Tinted Lash Primer ($24 US/$31 CAD). This multipurpose product can be worn as a mascara primer to boost length and lash separation, or it can be worn alone for naturally soft and defined mink brown lashes. I'm not really sure if I noticed a big difference using this with my Benefit They're Real! Mascara, as I love that mascara and consider it pretty much perfect as is for everyday natural volume and definition with amazing separation. It does contain Provitamin

Marc Jacobs Velvet Noir Major Volume Mascara Review | It Really Looks Like Falsies!

Meet my newest mascara love. The Marc Jacobs Velvet Noir Major Volume Mascara ($26 US/$33 CAD) is everything I look for in a mascara. It offers incredible length and volume all while keeping my lashes separated and soft. The design of the curvy brush places the most volume at the center lash while the defining tip styles lashes for major drama. It is also very easy to get access even my teeny inner corner lashes. The one available shade, 10 Noir, is incredibly black. There is absolutely no need for a lash comb with this

Tarte Life of the Party Collector’s Makeup Case Review, Photos, Swatches

The Tarte Life of the Party Collector's Makeup Case ($59 US/$71 CAD) is a neutral lovers paradise. I think it is so amazing to find a holiday eyeshadow palette that offers so many eyeshadows that are all neutral and incredibly easy to wear. Not everyone is comfortable wearing bold, bright, or fun colours and this set is perfect for the beauty lover who loves to have an incredible array of neutral and wearable shades at their disposal.

Maybelline The Falsies Push Up Drama Mascara Review | A New Favorite!

Maybelline is one of my go to brands when it comes to drugstore mascaras and their newest release has really knocked it out of the park for me. I am absolutely in love with the new Maybelline The Falsies Push Up Drama Mascara ($12.99 CAD). The packaging for this mascara is really fun. It has a shiny red cap, black middle, and metallic hot pink base. The design makes you think it's a dual ended product but it's not. The brush is really, really unique. I can't say I've ever seen a brush anything like this one before. Let's

Benefit Real Cheeky Party Blushing Beauty Review, Swatches, and Comparisons

The Benefit Real Cheeky Party Blushing Beauty Kit ($42 US/$54 CAD) for Holiday 2015 is one of the season's gifting must haves. If you missed out on last year's Benefit Cheeky Sweet Spot Box o' Blushes then you will want to get your hands on this set before it sells out. I'm not sure if they are more prepared for the demand this year, since last year's kit sold out so quickly, but better safe than sorry. The packaging is so fun this year. Bright green and pink with a polka dot party theme. The palette is a very sturdy tin and

Charlotte Tilbury The Dolce Vita Look Review Including the New Matte Revolution Lipstick in Bond Girl

Oh my goodness I am in TROUBLE. I have developed an all consuming obsession with Charlotte Tilbury cosmetics. I have been a fan of Charlotte Tilbury for years. I can't even remember how I was first introduced to her, but I loved her YouTube videos. When she announced she was coming out with her own cosmetics line I was incredibly excited. I knew she loved high end, luxury products so I was expecting nothing but the best. When the range was first released, but not yet available in Canada, I was so close to ordering from the UK, I

The Lise Watier Fall 2015 EYEvolution Collection is, you guessed it, all about eyes! The star product in the collection is the limited edition EYEvolution Quartet ($37 CAD) eyeshadow palette. It includes 4 shades of Lise Watier's incredible creme-to-powder eyeshadow formula. They offer a beautiful smooth texture with great colour payoff and long lasting wear.
