Farouk Chi Curling & Flat Irons


Farouk Chi Flat Irons, are without a doubt, the best flat irons on the market. I have used others and have been not been pleased. I find that a lot of flat irons really grab on to your hair and yank it out. Chi Flat Irons, don't do that. Their ceramic plates are placed in such a way that you don't have to worry about your hair being pulled out. Chi also has a great line of hair dryers and curling irons. They also have travel sized tools and 2 in 1 Ceramic Auto Digital Curling Iron, which is a flat iron and curling iron in one! I really love their tools and I have been using them for years, I wouldn't switch brands, because I really don't think there is anything that is better. They also have a large line of hair care products as well as organic products. I have yet to try them. I am currently looking into buying a curling iron, but I am having a hard time trying to decided what sized barrel I should get, 1 inch or 1 - 1/2 inch...such a dilemma!

Cover Girl Lash Blast Luxe Shimmering Volumizing Mascara


Hands down Cover Girl Lash Blast Mascara is my favourite drugstore mascara EVER! It is so volumizing and and lengthening! Cover Girl Lash Blast Shimmering Volumizing Mascara promises to be even better! The mascara is infused with subtle colour and shimmer to make your eyes dazzle! I cannot wait to try this!!! It comes in the following four colours:

It also comes in a super cute fuchsia tube!!
PS. I absolutely love love love my YSL Everlong Mascara in #7 Ever Steel Blue. It gives me great length with a subtle hint of blue that make my eyes sparkle!

Jennifer Aniston at the Oscars


I love Jennifer Aniston. She is so glamorous and beautiful. She always looks stunning and is never over done. She is a true California girl. I love her taste in clothing, always simple and sophisticated. Most of all her make up is always just right. Never too much and never too little. She always has a golden glow and sparkling eyes. Last night at the Oscars, she did not disappoint. Accompanied by John Mayer, she dazzled in an elegant Valentino gown with Jimmy Choo satin sandals. How can you go wrong with Valentino and Jimmy Choo? In my opinion she was definitely one of the best dressed. As for her make up - perfection. To recreate her look, even if you don't have a make up artist like Angela Levin, follow these simple steps:

Skin: After moisturizing Jennifer's skin, Levin applied Chanel Lift Lumiere foundation in Beige, concealing undereye circles with the matching concealer. Instead of blush, she dabbed Hydrabase lipstick in Coco Red on the apples of Jennifer's cheeks. After that, she dotted Sheer Brilliance in Sunkissed around the tops of Jen's cheekbones. (This captures light with a slight shimmer.) A bit of powder bronzer gave Jen a sunny glow.
Eyes: Jen wore Lorac eye shadows in Jade (green) and Serenity (bronze), along with Tina Earnshaw shadow in Aubergine. She closely lined the top and bottom lashes with black eye shadow. A coat of Chanel Inimitable mascara in black finished the look.
Lips: Lucky Jen got a preview of Chanel's forthcoming Aqualumiere Lipshine in Panarea. Get a similar look with a deep rose, creamy lipstick.

Tweezer and Eyelash Curler Care


Tweezers Care
When tweezers get dull - which happens with repeated use - they are no longer as effective as grabbing on to and removing small hairs. You can take them to a knife shop for sharpening. Some of the better brands, such as Tweezerman, come with a lifetime guarantee that includes free sharpening whenever necessary.
Eyelash Curler Care
The rubber pads that line the inside if an eyelash curler are there to protect the lashes, so when the pads start to wear out or break apart, they must be replaced. many eyelash curlers come with a set of replacement pads. Keep a set on hand.

Maybelline Stiletto Ultimate Length Mascara


My friend Sarah is obsessed with this mascara and told me to give it a try. Maybelline Stiletto Lash is super when it comes to lengthening and separating. It so inexpensive too! I got mine for less then $10 which is about $30 less then what I usually spend on mascara. Maybelline Stiletto Lash promises to stretch out your lashes by 70% at every angle. It also contains Pro - vitamin B5 and silk protein to strengthen and condition your lashes as well. I love it for it's super lengthening power, but I feel that it lacks a bit of volume so I use it with my Lancôme Cils Booster XL Masacara Base and that does the trick!

YSL Spring Look 2009 at Holts

Today I enjoyed the YSL Spring Look Collection with my girlfriend Lauren. The collection is filled with limited edition goodies, as well as some editions to the already fabulous collection. Lauren, who is naturally so beautiful got her makeup done and I must say the artist did a great job! I unfortunately forgot to bring my camera so I had to take the pictures with my BB, so I apologize for the slightly blurred pictures.





The YSL makeup artist mainly used the products from the Spring Look Collection. She used Palette D'Artiste Collector Powder for the eyes and Lauren's lids look stunning as shown in the picture to the right. I was blown away with how amazing her lashes looked after the application of their Everlong Mascara. Lauren and I were both so impressed that we purchased one. I decided to be a little different and purchased #7 Ever Steel Blue, which should really make my brown eyes pop! For a really fresh and beautiful look, YSL Spring Look Collection has all you ladies covered! Love love love!

YSL Touche Eclat Radiant Touch


My girlfriend Lauren raved about Yves Saint Laurent’s Touche Eclat Radiant Touch so much, I knew I had to get it. I have used it a few times and it has quickly become a very special item in my makeup bag. It’s kind of like a magical wand posing as a luxury concealer. It is great for really and I mean REALLY covering up dark circles. It also has light reflecting pigments that work wonders for brightening your eyes. It comes in a glamorous gold pen shaped tool, with a brush at the end. Just give it a click and the magic can be applied. You can also re-use it throughout the day and it won’t look cakey. Refer to Sephora and you can get really great tips on where it should be applied for optimal radiance.

Make Up For Ever Microperfecting Primer


I have been testing out Make Up For Ever HD Microperfecting Primer all week now and I think it’s an amazing product. My last primer was awful. It made my skin super dry and flaky. I absolutely hated it. Make Up For Ever HD Microperfecting Primer actually moisturizes my skin and leaves it feeling super soft and smooth. But, before I was ready to make it a staple in my makeup bag, I had to put it through some rigorous tests. The first was to see if it dried out my skin, which it did not. Next, I had to make sure that it actually held on to my makeup for the entire day. It passed with flying colours. I usually do my make up at about 7:30 am and by the time I get home around 6 pm, it’s is pretty much all gone. I was pleasantly surprised when I got home, looked in the mirror and did not shudder at the reflection. My makeup was still on, and it was almost as fresh as it had been when I first applied. I slowly started to fall in love. But, I was not done yet. I decided to see how well it would hold up after an even longer day. Same routine, I applied at 7:30 AM, went about my business and got home at about 10 PM that night and would you believe if I told you, my make up still looked great? Well believe it! It did! How have I ever lived without this product? You would think that I would be completely sold by now, but I was not done. I had one more test. I decided to see how it would hold up after a work out. Now, I am not one of the girls that glams up before going to the gym, but if I have makeup on, I don’t go out of my way to take it off. So, I jumped on the elliptical, make up looking fab and all, and worked out for 30 minutes. After the 30 minutes had elapsed, I took a good look in the mirror…my face was still pretty flawless, and my cheeks still bronzed and blushing…Ladies, we have a winner. This product is also oil - free and it comes in six colour correcting shades and one transparent shade. If Make up For Ever discontinues this product while I am living and breathing, all hell will break loose.

Fashion Flash: Alexander McQueen for Target



I kind of wish I lived in the US, preferably close to a Target store, so I could be one of the first to get my hands on this line. Alexander McQueen has designed a diffusion line for Target based on his lower - priced McQ line. The line will be available in store and online March 1 through April 11, 2009. Prices haven't been determined, but it's inspired by the Duke Spirit, a British band with an affinity for the sounds of late eighties and early nineties grunge bands. Lead singer Leila Moss was McQueen's muse for the collection who is shown in the picture above. The collection is described to have a muted color palette of black, white, gray and tan with accents of cobalt blue and bright pink. Studs and mesh give items an edge. For example, a chambray sleeveless shirtdress has stud detailing, there’s a mesh wrap dress and an open yarn zipper cardigan. Graphic prints and silk-screen photographs give tunics, dresses and T-shirts visual interest. The Leila silk-screen T-shirt with a necklace collar was designed for The Duke Spirit lead singer, while other band members are immortalized on a sleeveless jersey T-shirt. A sateen strapless pleat dress in a tattoo print of mermaids, dice and anchors is an example of McQueen’s penchant for pairing feminine fabrics with tough details. Alexander McQueen at an affordable price? This is all too much...

Dolce & Gabbana The Make Up


It's about time!! Dolce and Gabbana have launched a line of make up and Scarelett Johansson will be their campaign model! I can not wait to see their glamorous gold packaging housed in gold pouches and to test out their products. The first collection will be inspired by Mediterranean shades and the lipsticks will be rose scented.

Here is what they have to say about it:

"We see make-up as another thing for women, like a dress. We worked on the make-up line like we work on a clothing collection — you can change make-up like you can change your clothes, depending on your mood. We wanted to create make-up with a scent. Domenico and I remember when we were children and opened our mother’s handbags — the scent of her lipstick trailed out. I observed that when women open make-up, they smell it first,' Gabbana added.

Sephora by OPI Digital Diva Collection


Sephora by OPI Digital Diva Collection is the perfect set of nail polishes for spring and summer 2009. It may be snowing now, but that doesn't mean that the sunny days aren't around the corner. So, if you need something to pull you out of your winter depression this kit is exactly what you need. The colours are really fresh and vibrant! My favourites are I'm Wired and Lost Without my GPS!

CILS BOOSTER XL Super-Enhancing Mascara Base


Let me start off by saying that I hate, and I mean hate all mascaras that come with so- called "primers" or "mascara base" that leave your lashes looking awful, because the white stuff always pokes through. I used to try all of them and every single time I was disappointed. As, I am sure you know, I love Lancôme. I swear by Lancôme and I will try anything Lancôme releases at least once, because they are just that wondeful. I am not going to lie, I didn't want to try the Cils Booster XL Super-Enchaning Mascara Base, because I didn't want Lancôme to break my heart. I got over my fear a few days ago and decided to make the purchase. Lancôme didn't dissappoint, not one tiny bit. I am still in love with Lancôme nor is my heart broken. Cils Booster XL Super-Enchaning Mascara Base (I know, it's such a mouthful) is fantastic. Use it a few minutes before you want to apply your actual mascara ( doesn't have to be Lancôme, but you know that they make amazing mascaras) and let it dry. It lengthens, separates and gives you crazy volume! It also hydrates your lashes which is a plus! I love love love!!!

Sephora Opening at Fairview


Beauty is coming to Fairview Mall! Sephora will be opening shortly, North York beauties get ready to have everything at your fingertips! Also, for you ladies that love Forever 21, get excited, because it will also be opening up in Fairview Mall! I love their earrings, they are so much fun and I always walk out of there with at least 2 pairs!!!
