Elizabeth and James NIRVANA Launches New Dry Shampoos, Body Oils, and Hand Creams

Elizabeth and James NIRVANA Black is one of my signature scents so when I discovered they were releasing new products for hair and body I was VERY excited! While body products in our favourite scents aren't anything new, having access to hair products IS. I think every fragrance brand should look into expanding into more hair and body care products. It's always frustrated me that I could wear my favourite perfume yet have my hair smelling completely different. Even deodorant. Wouldn't it be nice to have every scented product on

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

Urban Decay Naked Smoky Palette Review, Swatches, and Looks

The Urban Decay Naked Smoky Palette ($64 CAD/$54 US) is a palette that includes everything you need to create so many different smoky eye looks, and even some tame ones as well. The packaging for Naked Smoky is my favourite of all the Naked Palettes. The palette has a floating smoke pattern with the lettering in gunmetal foil. Even the back of the palette is cool. The transparent smoky plastic allows you to see through to the pans and brush within. The magnetic closure palette  feels very secure and sturdy. Open the palette
