Not all eye shadows are created equal. Some offer more pigment than others, while many can be used wet and dry, or even as liner. We love them for their versatility and wide range of colours, but it’s so hard to choose between brands. (more…)

Nail polish has stepped into the spotlight as of late and it is hard to keep up with all of the trends. Is the new it colour black? Is it blue that looks almost black? Is it orange? We are going to stick with what we like, colour wise, but we’ve tested five major brands to bring you the best of the best.
OUR RATING SYSTEM
1 – Lackluster
2 – Not the worst of the bunch
3 – Getting there …
4 – Almost perfect
5 – Knock-your-socks-off good
Essie in Mini Shorts
The Claim: Famous for its chip-resistant formula, durability and huge selection of colours (over 200 in all).
The Truth: You get what you see with this bright, bright orange. After a few rounds of dishwashing the polish did begin to chip a little but it was minimal. Perfect for a manicure because it stays put.

We love anything that makes room in our already crowded handbags. So we were delighted to learn that CoverGirl is introducing Wetslicks AmazeMint – part super shiny gloss, part refreshing Crest peppermint oil. Now we don’t need to tote around both gloss and mints for after dinner touch-ups.
The cool tingle, minty scent and slight sparkle are going to make this one of your makeup must-haves for the summer.
WetSlicks Amazemint is available in 13 different shades – one for every mood. The colour is quite sheer, so for a bolder look apply this gorgeous gloss over your favourite ‘stick or lip liner.
The boys will be lining up to kiss you!
