Rinse Beauty Bar - Etiobicoke

Hi Alicia
I had an anxiety ridden day before I hit the beauty bar thanks to a visit from some higher ups at work and preparing for a video assignment needed to be done during the evening (had 2 hours to film and edit a short video. Quite the challenge but it was exciting to edit -my role in the project!) so I unfortunately had to rush my service a bit but I received nothing but the best! Also, this is when I had realized my camera lens had broken. ;( At least my phone camera's is decent!

Addicted To Nail Polish? Check Out These 2 Inexpensive Finds!

A mini review and swatch of The Face Shop's Face It and Gel Touch Nail Polish! I would like to blame my friend Anastasia for my recent Face Shop purchases. I've gotten a number of polishes from them.. they're so inexpensive! I've also grown fond of doing my nails. Funny since when I first started blogging I used to be really into nail art and was pretty good at it if I do say so myself.

These are just two from a recent purchase. I ran out of my black polish and I can't say no to anything sparkly...

Is This $100 24-Carat-Gold Primer Worth It?



They say:
Guerlain l'Or is an embellishing make-up base sprinkled with pure 24-carat gold flakes. Like the most luxurious jewellery pieces, the precious flakes were crafted into ultra-sparkling and ultra-reflective particles, then dispersed in a hydrating smoothing gel. The complexion is beautified. It glows with divine and unfailing radiance. Skin is smooth, supple and satiny, ready for perfect, enhanced and long-lasting make-up.

L'Or has a distinctive and delicate floral scent. The first peach note blended with an accord of vegetal notes is fresh and sparkling. The rose, raspberry and jasmine heart is enriched with a powdery base of balsamic, benzoin and white musk. -- Guerlain

Aritaum All Day Lasting Foundation, Is It Really All Day Lasting?? Review + Comparison to MUFE's Mat Velvet!

Aritaum All Day Lasting Foundation

There had been a number of humid days where I live this summer and I wanted to try out a matte finish foundation. I rarely opt for a matte finish however I was feeling a little spunky and wanted to try something new.

It wasn't the easiest thing finding a matte finish BB Cream/Asian foundation so my list wasn't very long. I opted for this since the colour looked the nicest but it also seemed to have good coverage.
