Review: Colourpop Good Sport Palette

After being thoroughly impressed with Colourpop’s I Think I Love You palette over the summer, I decided to expand my collection. Colourpop makes a solid eyeshadow, hosts a variety of shades, and lands at a price point I find laudable. I was immediately drawn to the Good Sport palette, sixteen shadows perfectly suited for autumn…

Do I Need…?: Pat McGrath’s MOTHERSHIPS

Sephora’s VIB sale ended yesterday. 20% off everything in-store and online, not to mention additional deals and holiday gift sets: it’s an exercise in unbridled avarice, a celebration of consumerism, and a good opportunity to stock-up on products that aren’t otherwise discounted. I admit that I topped up my supply of skincare items and grabbed…

Getting Your Sparkle On

I love glitter. Rather un-pragmatic of me, I know, but I can’t help myself. There’s something about glitter that I can’t resist. I’m one of the five people who hasn’t unhauled their Moondust palette, for instance. I put MAC’s Dazzledusts on my list of favourite products from 2017. There’s a lot that can go wrong…

Review: Colorpop “I Think I Love You”

I was not enamoured with the Tarte eyeshadow palette from FabFitFun’s Spring box. The colours were too warm-toned, and while it was a pretty palette, it did not have dark enough shades to fit my needs. Thankfully, I’m getting another shot at love with a neutral palette. This time, I’m trying out Colorpop’s “I Think…

Review: Tarte FabFitFun Palettes

FabFitFun sounds like a lark. It addresses some my bigger criticisms about subscription boxes, offering full-size products four times a year rather than samples every month. Their most recent box included two Tarte palettes – leave your mark, an eyeshadow palette, and a Pro Glow contour palette. Neither were items I would have picked up…

One Shadow Wonder: MAC Woodwinked

I don’t mind wearing more than one eyeshadow. My standard is four – one light to wash across the lid and brow, two darker for the crease and outer corner, and one black for the lashline. However, since I’ve been sharing my make-up routine more and more, I’ve learned that my process may be a…

Old Trend, New Tricks: The Cut Crease

I saw a blog post declaring the cut crease to be a new make-up trend, and boy, did my eyes roll. New? Nuh uh. The cut crease is getting close to the big 6-0, seeing if not its conception but certainly its heyday in the swinging sixties. A cut crease is a technique where a…

Review: Sarah Does Sugarpill

I fell in love with Sugarpill when it launched in 2010 and started appearing in make-up tutorials from all my favourite gurus. I had been keeping an eye out for a true red eyeshadow for years, and the company delivered with Love+, a stunning candy-apple red that I simply had to own. That they sold…
