Something New: Pari Beauty Review

I first saw Pari Beauty at Toronto IMATS 2010. If my mind serves me right I was introduced to a very nice lady named Antoinette :) She gave who gave myself and Yana a brief rundown on the Pari brand.
Makeup galore at the Pari booth
Unfortunately, We did not purchase anything from the booth due to our pockets being But I vowed I would try something one of these days. Recently I got the opportunity to try out three products.

I was dying to try out the fast Drying Brush Cleanser since I seen a demonstration at IMATS. I would recommend this brush cleanser for MUA who use a brushes on multiple clients.

I travel a lot so I poured it into a smaller bottle. Much more convenient.
  • Affordable ($10.00 CDN)
  • Big bottle for multiple use
  • Quick Drying

Brow Tamer:
Perfect for keeping your brow hairs together. I have really thick long brow hairs, so they can be a problem to tame at times. This is my first brow "gel" and I'm liking it so far. Price wise it was $12.00 but the bottle is durable(like metal) not a cheap plastic from what I am use to seeing.

Powder Blush:
This highly-pigmented pressed powder comes in matte and iridescent tones.  Its unique formula delivers long-lasting wear.
There was no legend stating which color was matte, shimmer, iridescent or whatever... I lucked out and got BO 08 which is a nice shimmery peach color.

If your into swatching and testing new makeup brands like I am..I would advise you to visit their stores in Canada:
Pari Beauty Locations
Vaughan Mills Mall (Woodbridge)
Bramalea City Centre (Brampton)
Upper Canada Mall (Newmarket)

I have been to the Bramalea City Centre (Brampton) and had the chance to swatch and get the look of the kiosk up close.
Ladies have you heard of Pari Beauty?

My first ASOS order! FREE shipping :)

This is my first time ordering of ASOS and I'm ecstatic! Not only because I found cute items..because shipping was FREE to Canada! LOL That's a rare occurrence. I'm currently trying to slowly build my summer wardrobe and these are the two items that I am starting out with:

FOTD: Valentine Day using Mac #38 lashes

I was debating whether or not to post this picture but I decided to celebrate wearing falsies outside for the first time. I was scared they would fall off into my salad or something. They didn't.. :D

Natural style length with a wispy texture. This half lash adds subtle fullness to the outer corner of the eye

Revlon Creme Glosses review + Swatches

In my city there is a Revlon Sale almost every week at the flea market. Since I haven't really bought any makeup this year I decided to treat myself to a few goodies. After swatching for what seems like forever I found theses babies on my way out!

What first caught my eye was the pigmentation. I prayed when I swatched it that it wouldn't be sheer and washed out.. They weren't!
The next-generation in lip gloss with both full-coverage color and extreme gloss shine. Collagen complex and light reflecting particles give lips a fuller appearance. Vitamin E and collagen condition for ultra-soft lips. Unique flow-through brush offers smooth, even application. 
My girls on twitter told me that these glosses sell for $11.00+ at CVS. I just want to let you all know I got them for 4 for $10.00.

  • Pigmented
  • Affordable (in my case)
  • Several colors to choose from
  • You need to click slowly
I would purchase again because of the price and pigmentation. In Canada it's very hard to get good quality makeup for under $3.00.

Which one is your favorite?

Rihanna headband look- Hot or Not?

Spring is right around the corner.. well if you look outside you may say other wise :| It's snowing!!

I forgot to do a winter beauty/fashion trend, so I'm researching what's hot for Spring/Summer. One trend which I am currently seeing a lot is head bands/head ties.

Some people may not know what I of course I had to use the gorgeous Rihanna as an example:

They may not be for everyone but all I can see are pros:
  • Works for all hair lengths and types.
  • Perfect for lazy hair days.
  • They can add flair to an outfit.
  • Affordable!
I had to highlight affordable because you can buy a scarf at most dollar stores for only a dollar!!

So ladies is the headband look hot?

Dove Shea Butter Cream Oil Body Wash Review + Giveaway

Right now winter is killing me softy! My hands, face, arms and elbows are heavily moisturized but my legs are dry :( For the past couple week I have been using the NEW Dove® Cream Oil Shea Butter Body Wash with NutriumMoisture™ to retain moisture.
NEW Dove® Cream Oil Shea Butter Body Wash with NutriumMoisture™ is specially designed to leave dry, dull skin feeling smooth and radiant. This body wash is a whipped blend of rich cream infused with shea butter which melts into dry, dull skin to leave it soft, smooth and radiant. The shea butter offers a deliciously enticing fragrance – blend of warm vanilla and brown sugar scents.

Reminds me of whipped butter and it melts into your skin without a greasy residue. I find that it doesn't lather up with a lot of bubbles..which doesn't bother me.

The NutriumMoisture™ technology found in this body wash combines skin nourishing and skin moisturizing ingredients to help skin retain its natural moisture by replenishing lipids lost during cleansing. This body wash builds on the Dove® heritage of mild cleansing and superior moisturization for healthy, beautiful skin. 

The bottle is huge at 710 mL so it will last a long time.

The smell is amazing. I love sweet scents that this like linger in the shower.

$7.49 CDN
This is a product that I would recommend because I'm seeing progress in my skin, it smells great and it's affordable.

Visit for additional products, such as the Shea Butter Beauty Bar, from the #1 dermatologist recommended brand of bar and body wash.

Day 3: V-day Lips MAC Heartless Lipstick

The name Heartless is definitely not appropriate for a v-day look...... unless your a gold digger!!! LOL I'm joking... The name is crazy but the color is AMAZING.

Mac Heartless was from the Venomous Villains Collection back in 2010. This was one collection I didn't pass up!
Heartless is a Cherry Red (Amplified formula). 
 Amplified means:
 *Glides on smoothly
*non- drying 
*highly pigmented 
*stays on for hrs without drying out lips 
This color is gorgeous! Perfect for girl trying to transition to lipstick from glosses.

"Glossy Lipstick" hopefully that makes sense 
Try CCO, ebay or makeupalley..

Pretty Good.. Will leave makes on your glass and
