Yves Saint Laurent Vernis a Levres Glossy Stain Review

Yves Saint Laurent Vernis a Levres Glossy Stain is a fantastic lip product.  I have been thoroughly impressed by all the shades I own.  Especially 15 Rose Vinyl, which I actually wore for my wedding last year and I only had to reapply it after photos and after eating.  Even when it wears off, it leaves a nice stain so your…

Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Eyeshadow Palette Review

I first found out about the tarte Rainforest of the Sea collection before it was released at Sephora.  When I was looking through all the new products and I saw this eyeshadow palette, I knew right away that I just had to have it.  It is the perfect range of shades for the type of makeup I do on myself…

My Current AM and PM Skincare Routine

Skincare routines can be really difficult to create for yourself.  Discovering and curating a carefully selected array of products that you love can be super hard.  I know it is for me (which is probably why my skincare routine changes all the time).  I’m always on a quest for perfect skin that looks like I’m wearing makeup even when I’m not.  I…

Dr. Dennis Gross Ferulic & Retinol Triple Correction Eye Serum Review

I like retinol.  It does all manner of good things for skin.  In the case of Dr. Dennis Gross Ferulic & Retinol Triple Correction Eye Serum, it helps brighten, smooth fine lines, and firm fragile under eye skin.  The formula also helps depuff around the eye area.  The ferulic acid also helps provide an additional antioxidant boost to the product (along…

Cane & Austin Protect Broad Spectrum SPF50 Review

Now that summer is nearly here, it’s time to talk about sunscreen!  Cane & Austin Protect Broad Spectrum SPF50 Ultra Sheer Weightless Sunscreen to be exact (what a mouthful!).  Sunscreen is the absolute best way to prevent premature aging and sun damage.  Protecting your skin is far better than trying to correct the damage later.  It is so important to apply…

Yarok Feed Your Ends Leave-in Conditioner Review

Yarok Feed Your Ends Leave-in Conditioner is a fantastic spray leave-in conditioner.  It nourishes and detangles, and makes hair soft, smooth, and shiny.  I’m on my second bottle and I love the stuff.  It has helped make my hair much easier to comb after showering (and I have a lot of thick, frizzy, poufy hair).  My hair definitely feels more…

NARS Lipstick Review

NARS Lipstick is one of my favourite lip products out there.  It isn’t the most natural or eco friendly of formulas or brands (although they are cruelty free), but boy do they make good lipstick.  My favourite shades are the sheer ones, I’m less fond of super opaque lip colours.  I also really like the packaging.  NARS products all have…
