Beauty Review: Girlactik Blush, Eyeliner and Shadow
May 19, 2010 at 11:48 am 1
girlactik Girlactik is a relatively new beauty company, and their products are fresh, fun and are very regularly worn by celebrities on the red carpet. We bought a few products to review and test out if the product is worth the pricetag. Here are the final scores: Naples Blush: 10/10 - this blush looks gorgeous on, is light, fun and brightens up the face in a subltle way that looks like you've just spent a week on vacation. It really does wonders! $16 US, available at select Sephora stores. Black Eyeliner: 6/10 - this eyeliner applies easily, and has a roll up stick so you don't need to sharpen it, but there doesn't seem to be much of it! It's pretty expensive, and considering how long our pencil eyeliners have lasted they should give more product. $17 US, available at select Sephora stores. Sultry Shadow: 7/10 - this shadow looks great on and applies evenly, but there's nothing that special about it. If you're going to pay above and beyond Cover Girl prices you kind of expect more than Cover Girl...but we're not sure we got it. $17 US, available at select Sephora stores.

Organic Beauty Product Review
August 27, 2009 at 3:18 pm 1

In my constant search for healthier beauty products I stumbled upon some that might just be what I’m looking for! I posted earlier that I wanted to find products that are organic, and more friendly to my little body. Initially I tested out deodorants….without much success. So I turned my attention to moisturizers and cosmetics. I found a multi purpose colour stick for lips/cheeks/eyes/décolletage, called Freedom Glow Beauty Balm from Revolution Organics. It comes in a creamy and compact tube and is perfect for travels! It is long lasting and I loved the bronzed colour – perfect for my olive skin! I also tested out some of their moisturizers and I found an All Over Body Balm that is quite lovely. I really liked it for my hands and dry cuticles. I put it on before bed and when I woke up I had soft and supple hands, without the greasy feeling. So it seems my search for healthier beauty products was not in vain. Yup, now I’m looking sexy minus the guilt!

My Lip Stain Loves Me Long Time
August 12, 2009 at 4:47 pm 0
I have a confession. I’m a lip biter. I have been for years. Every time I apply lipstick it’s mere minutes before I’ve removed it by biting my lips. I’ve tried everything from the very pricey brands to the super cheap drugstore variety but nothing seems to stay on my lips longer than twenty minutes, until…I discovered lip stain! When I first opened the tube, I thought it looked weird. When I applied the lip stain it seemed like I was drawing on my lips with a felt pen, and it smelled a bit strange too. But when I looked in the mirror five minutes later I could still see my lips brightly lit with colour! I checked again in ten minutes and they were still fully coloured then too! I checked every ten minutes and it wasn’t until an hour later that the colour started to slightly fade. And several hours later I still had tinges of colour on my lips! I was so pleased that now I’m a lip stain convert! And the best news? Even the cheap ones work fabulously well. Here’s the $6 one I tested out from Joe.
