Maybelline Color Blur Matte Pencils and The Korean Lip Look

*Press Sample

 When my friends come over, they are sometimes surprised with the number of foreign (typically Asian) magazines I own. Korean, Chinese, Japanese, I can't read them but I love paging through them. In the Korean variety, the ombre lip has been a heavy feature, not only on the printed page but on screen as well. Perfectly faded brilliantly bold color is so fresh but still magnetically alluring and the Maybelline Color Blur Matte Pencils* (available in Aug, $12CDN, 0.04oz) are specially made to help you achieve that look.

Peanut Butter, Apple, Celery, Edamame Salad over Buckwheat Noodles

After trying a few an interesting salad via a vegetarian friend of David's, I've really been getting into the salad thing and not only that, but trying out different things I've never used before. Way too much of a fan of peanut butter, I found this Peanut Butter, Celery, Apple, Edamame Salad.

Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara review

I've heard a lot of buzz about the Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara* ($11CDN) especially from La Belle Sirene.  This semi-latest (there's the Chaotic Mascara, recently out for summer) mascara has a liquid volumizing formula which contains "black pearls" and a specially made wand which is supposed to fan out your lashes.

In the Moment #31 (Situation Analysis #2): Meeting Charlotte TIlbury

Yet again fervour arose over a major celebrity in the beauty world and I am less than in the know. Apparently Charlotte Tilbury is the #1 Makeup Artist in the World, something we were often reminded of at her appearance and launch of her eponymous makeup line at Holts on Bloor. For the occasion, the store was bedazzled in showlights and British Flags and I ran into more than a handful of the local beauty community while I was there.

PSA: There's Nothing Wrong about Having a Virgin (cocktail)

the body shop virgin mojito body scrub and body butter review

For those of you who want to get their 'drank on' without actually drinking, The Body Shop has released their Virgin Mojito line of body products. Raise your hand if alcohol and you aren't a match made in heaven. *Raises hand* Just me? As someone who suffers from low abilities to break down alcohol, and is generally frugal with money and calories, I don't often drink.

Guerlain Meteorites Rainbow Pearls*

Guerlain Meteorites Rainbow Pearls swatch review

The phenomenon of the Guerlain Meteorites continues to amaze me. These magic balls (ballz) seem to either win people over with their blurring and perfecting effect or leave people wondering what they're missing when they don't notice a difference when used. I feel like you'll either be in one camp of another and it makes me wonder if there is a placebo effect of some kind. The latest Meteorites Rainbow Pearls (LE, $71, 25g) has a magical property I did notice though.
