So quite a while ago I had an idea to do a beauty feature here on the blog called Skincare Sunday’s. What that means is that every Sunday I would be talking about some aspect of skincare. Well life got in the way and Skincare Sunday’s fell to the wayside.
Fast forward a few months, and due to demand, I am very pleased to announce that I’m bringing it back. That’s right, Skincare Sunday’s will resume with regular weekly posting on October 5, 2014. You asked for it through email, comments, Instagram DM’s, Facebook Messages, and so on. The people have spoken and I heard you loud and clear.
I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again; I have been able to experience some amazing things and introduced to some outstanding brands and products through the wonderful world of blogging. So on Monday I made my way over to the Thompson Hotel here in Downtown Toronto to meet with the twin co-founders, Zoe and Kim, of the Dr Roebuck’s skincare line and I had a blast. (more…)
A few weeks ago I was roaming around my local Shoppers Drug Mart and I found myself stopped in front of the Rimmel London section. Up until then I had never really paid Rimmel London or their products any mind. I mean I know the brand spokeswomen is Kate Moss, which is enough for me to pass them right by, but their products have just never interested me. They have always struck me as particularly ‘cheap’ looking when it comes to packaging. Don’t get me wrong, I have no problem with things actually being cheap in terms of the money I need to spend to acquire it, but I do have a problem with the stuff I acquire looking cheap. So it came as a bit of a surprise when I found myself actually picking up some of the Rimmel London Apocalips to try out.
I must say that INGLOT has been a brand that I have long wanted to try out, but I never have mainly because they don’t really have a storefront presence. I mean you can order their stuff online, but when I have never tried a brand before, then I tend to want to be able to test out and play with the products before I buy them. So imagine my surprise and joy a few weeks ago when Julie from SwatchandReview let me know that there would soon be a store opening in Toronto! Well last night I had the absolute pleasure of attending a blogger preview of the new INGLOT Toronto store before it opens to the public this weekend and what a fun time it was!
Launching this month, MAKE UP FOR EVER has released their new Artist Liners. Described as ‘a twist-up, gliding eye pencil that delivers intense colour payoff in a range of shades’ I have to say that I was super eager to try them out and put them to the test. Today I will be taking a look at the MAKE UP FOR EVER Artist Liner in I-22, Iridescent Turquoise.
