The Best High-End & Drugstore Mascaras

It’s time to resurrect this post on one of my favourite makeup products – mascara! This post is still dedicated to my dear Dauphiine at Tiaras & Trianon as she and I are probably the biggest mascara-addicts of all! (Haha!) I have tested many mascaras over the years and I’d like to share my favourite mascaras from high-end brands …

Review: White Glo Diamond Series Toothpaste*

Hailed as Australia’s No. 1 whitening toothpaste, White Glo was originally developed for models and actors. It eventually became a beloved household brand for whitening teeth. I had just finished my Blanx whitening toothpaste a few weeks before and was thinking of trying another whitening toothpaste (although I do like Blanx). Since the brand had such …

Beauty Review: Skincare Products {July}

This month, I tested seven new skincare products, half of which were samples. Caudalie – Make-up Removing Cleansing Oil: This was a free birthday gift from Space NK. I don’t usually like using cleansing oil on my face because I find it takes longer to wash off. I use this to remove waterproof mascara only with …

My Beauty Essentials (Feb 2016)

Two weeks ago, I was inspired by Glossier to share what my essential beauty products are to enhance – rather than hide – my natural features. One thing I like about Glossier is the belief that: “…beauty should be fun, easy, imperfect, and personal.” We often become focused on transforming our faces into a portrait of perfection, as …

Fragonard’s Marché aux Fleurs

I had been searching for the longest time for a fresh fragrance with lily-of-the-valley. Fellow Canadian royal watcher on Twitter, Fabulously Styled, had brought back Fragonard’s Muguet (French for lily-of-the-valley) from her last visit to Paris so I was hoping to get one too. By the time I visited Fragonard in Paris, however, the eau …

Review: The Body Shop’s Tea Tree Line

Last year, I tried Body Shop’s Tea Tree line to treat my blemished skin. I started with one product and eventually tested nearly all the products in the Tea Tree line. (In hindsight, I should have tried the starter’s kit first.) I really liked this line but only some products were more effective than others. …

Review: Birchbox Canada (Dec 2014)

Yes, I’m aware my review is 4 months late, but better now than later! When I found out that Birchbox was finally launching its beauty subscription boxes in Canada, I had to sign up for one box. Birchbox had been highly praised by my friends from the South (as in the US of A) as …
