COMING UP | Bite Beauty BITE Size Discovery Set

Monday, December 10, 2012

A quick, silly snapshot of the Bite Beauty Bite Size Discovery Set ($25 USD/$29 CAD), because what are the holidays without a few tongue-in-cheek Photoshop brushes?

I’m three-fifths through these little guys, and haven’t found an unflattering shade thus far. The set itself recently sold out online, but the shades themselves are permanent — more photos & swatches when I get a chance. If you can’t find all five in-store, the individual shades are well worth picking up, too!

(The Bite Size Discovery Set includes Bite Beauty Luminous Creme Lipsticks in Retsina, Musk, Shiraz, Fig, and Pomegranate, from left to right in the photo above.)

COMING UP | Clarins Odyssey Eye Quartet Mineral Palette (+ collection details)

Wednesday, December 5, 2012

How beautiful is the Clarins Odyssey quad? The lone Eye Quartet Mineral Palette ($42 CAD) of the Odyssey collection, this gorgeous gold case contains everything you’ll need to create a stunning earth-toned eye: think chocolatey, taupey neutrals combined with a high-impact copper-gold.

The Gift Guide | Korres Goddess Beauty Colour Collection

Wednesday, November 21, 2012

Korres’ holiday gift sets don’t always feel particularly “holiday,” but they’re always gorgeous nonetheless. The full feature for this one is in the works but here’s a quick soundbite for now: the lovely rose lipgloss is a variation of Light Pink (which you may remember from last year’s holiday Cherry-Picked Lipgloss Quad), but the true stunner in this collection is the Magic Light Contouring Face Trio in Santorini.

Review/swatches soon — this face trio really is as breathtaking in person as it looks in photographs, and the rest of the set pairs well with it.

Korres Goddess Beauty Color Collection, $42 USD/$55 CAD at Sephora.com. 

Sephora + Pantone Universe Luminous Brush Set

Wednesday, November 7, 2012

Coming up sometime in the (hopefully) not-too-distant future. This is a fall release, with the Sephora + Pantone Universe Alchemy of Color collection, but I think it would make a great holiday gift or starter brush set!

SEPHORA + PANTONE UNIVERSE Luminous Brush Set, $34.00US / $41.00 CAD (50% off). 

COMING UP | LUSH Emotional Brilliance, Tatcha, Japonesque, & more.

Monday, July 30, 2012

LUSH Emotional Brilliance reviews: Wise (Cream Eyeshadow), Perspective (Liquid Lipstick), and Fantasy (Liquid Eyeliner).

That’s right; another not-quite-real post. Because I’m (still) swimming in coursework, and the time that I haven’t spent studying, I’ve spent trying to fight off an unexpected midsummer flu. (And, seriously? Who gets the flu in the summer?!)

Anyhow. Once I mange to dig myself out of this summer-term black hole, this is what you can expect to see on theNotice! 

(To be totally honest, though, you’ll probably see some of these things before term ends because I have no self-control occasionally take breaks from neuropsychology to eat, sleep, shower, and blog.)

Lise Watier Summer Sunset flash reviews: oh my god, I can’t believe I still haven’t finished covering this collection. I am the worst when it comes to “out of sight, out of mind,” I swear!!

Senna Mod Muse eyeshadows: same for these. They’re gorgeous, but I have yet to post the swatch photos sitting somewhere on my MacBook!

Japonesque Safari Chic review. No elaboration needed — how cute is that brush?

Hard Candy Glamoflauge: I love this one, so expect shade comparisons (Light vs Medium) in the near future!

Tatcha skincare overview and regimen review… once I get my act together and actually try it.

And, finally, Physician’s Mineral Wear Talc-Free Pressed Powder, because SPF is definitely “in” for the summer.

COMING UP | Annabelle Aqua Queen, Summer 2012

Monday, June 25, 2012

I’m pretty much the last blogger on this bandwagon, but that’s okay. (I’m sure you’re all used to it by now.)

For their Summer 2012 colour collection, Annabelle is releasing (has released? is planning to release? I have absolutely no idea what’s in drugstores right now) two limited-edition products: a Caribbean Sun Biggy Bronzing Powder, and a rather exciting ten-shade Hawaïan Hues Eyeshadow Palette.

Reviews and swatches upcoming, but for now, enjoy these photos of the products! It’s a small summer offering (probably because the palette, instead of just being a single or duo eyeshadow, covers everything from light grey to golden-yellow and shimmery blue-green), but it’s just… I don’t even really know what to say.

The products are just so summery. It’s like someone took “summery” and threw it in a pot and simmered until it boiled down to two super-summery products rather than ten mildly-summery products.

Terms like “super-summery” are generally a cue that I should stop blabbing, so I’ll leave you at that. The products will be $12.95 CAD each, and the eyeshadow palette (but not the bronzer) is paraben-free.
