NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation Review

nars luminous foundation deauville

A few months ago I attended a launch event at Sephora for the NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation. Could they have fit more words in to the name of this foundation? I won’t gripe about it too much since the descriptors are all pretty spot on. I ended up hauling home the whole prescribed face routine after the requisite […]

Emma-Stone

Emma Stone. This young woman is such a breath of fresh air on every red carpet. She leads with her personality and wows with her breathtaking natural beauty. The REVLON Global Brand Ambassador and Best Actress in a Supporting Role Nominee owned the red carpet (was there ever any doubt) with makeup and fashion that were pure […]

Makeup artist by Sarah Tanno for NARS created an exquisite look for “Dear Lady Gaga” last night (thank Julie Andrews for that new meme). I am obsessed with her flawless complexion and statement lip using some of my all time favourite NARS products. If she hadn’t worn those stinkin’ red kitchen gloves, this whole look would […]

Favourite Mascaras of the Season

IMG_9008

Hard truth: a mascara can make or break your eye look. You can take painstaking precautions when applying, blending, and lining your eyeshadow and liner, but one smudge, shed or clump of mascara and all your efforts are for naught. This season I have been favouring three mascaras that are now permanent staples in my routine. The […]

Taking a Page out of Murad’s Book

Murad skincare review

I consider myself somewhat of an aficionado of skincare for acne prone skin. I think I have tried nearly every acne targeted skincare line on the market, both natural and clinical. Some have worked very well and others failed so sensationally that the only joy was the satisfying clink as they hit the bottom of the […]

Review: Real Techniques New Miracle Complexion Sponge

IMG_8241

I’m just not a sponge person. There’s no way around it and no sponge out there that will change my mind. For foundation I always grab a duo fibre or stippling brush, Real Techniques being amongst my favourite of this style. I think that the form of the new sponge is clever and certainly competitive […]
