Nail of the Day: Nicole by OPI's Shell Me The Truth

I saw Shell Me The Truth in Shoppers a few days ago and had to pick it up! The first thing about this polish that caught my eye is the duo-chrome. It has a fairly normal base (a blue based pink) but when your fingers move, your eyes catch the lovely gold shimmer!

Product Review: Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream

As someone who lives in Canada, I'm not really in the prime location to purchase asian-made BB creams and I'm a little scared to order one online, so I've kind of settled for Maybelline's new Dream Fresh BB Cream. I didn't have a lot of faith in this product when I first bought it because the testers were very watery (and I had assumed that asian BB creams are very thick and creamy) but I needed a foundation with SPF because my Clinique Stay Matte foundation has none at all.

Nail of the Day: Essie's Mamba

I've had my eye on a certain row on the Essie stand that has a bunch of lovely pink/nude (such as Buy Me a Cameo and Eternal Optimist) colours in it. Mamba is the first I own from that row so far!

Nail of the Day: Essie's Turquoise & Caicos

Today's NOTD is brought to you by Essie's Turquoise and Caicos. I picked up this polish recently because it's the perfect blend of blue, green and turquoise. It reminds me of a blue raspberry Icee! It's also a cult favourite, and I had to see if it was worth the hype!

Product Review: MAC's Highlighting Powder in Crew

I wanted my first purchase at MAC to be a little special, which is why I decided to pick up their limited edition high-lighting powder in Crew, part of their Hey, Sailor!  collection for summer 2012.

Nail of the Day: Essie's Vanity Fairest

I recently saw Vanity Fairest on Ingrid (missglamorazzi)'s nails and had to pick it up. I wore it over top of Essie's Grow Stronger base coat to make sure it applied smoothly.

Beauty Haul!

A little collection of makeup products I bought on two recent drugstore trips. I'm aware that I have an Essie addiction, no need to comment on it!

Product Review & Swatches: New Foundations

Being fair, I have an extremely difficult time finding foundations that don't make me look orange. This whole situation started because I finally realized the Rimmel Lasting Finish Foundation in 103 True Ivory is not the right shade for my skin-tone, even though it is the second fairest of them all. Because I loved the matte finish it gave my skin, I decided to try out the lightest shade they have to offer... That's when I went on a foundation rampage.

Product Review: butter LONDON's Matte Topcoat

I've been on the hunt for a matte topcoat for the longest time, and had almost lost hope when I found that my local drugstores no longer carried Essie's Matte About You. I also knew that butter LONDON had one, but it always seemed to be sold out when I went to look for it. After stocking the butter LONDON stand for a very long time, I finally found the Matte Finish Shine-Free Topcoat!
