Exhibit: Playdead!

Stu Dead's Playdead 906 Exhibition Review

I can't think of a better way to celebrate Halloween than visiting Nuvango Gallery's newest art exhibit Playdead 906 by local Toronto artist Stu Dead. You may have seen Stu's artwork throughout the city, including the walls of The (soon to be closing) Hideout bar on Queen Street West and his retail store Playdead Cult, which has moved a few times over the years but now resides in Parkdale.

Skincare Review: L'Oreal's Bright Reveal!

L'Oreal RevitaLift Bright Reveal Skincare Collection Review

I have a confession to make. From last March until September, I neglected my regular beauty routine and my skin wasn't looking too good. Because of some personal difficulties, I wasn't feeling too excited about several things in my life which including putting in alot of effort into my personal appearance. A few weeks ago I made some hard decisions in my life, which I'm pretty excited about and will share soon, and I decided it was time to get back to basics and start looking as good as I felt. It was at that time that I received L'Oreal's new RevitaLift Bright Reveal Collection free to test out and review, which I took as a sign that I made the right decisions!

The L'Oreal RevitaLift Bright Reveal Collection includes a Brightening Scrub Cleanser, Brightening Peel Pads, Brightening Dual Moisturizer, and Brightening Daily Lotion and are packed with anti-aging ingredients including Vitamin GC Acid, Hepes, Glycolic Acid (formulated with 10% - one of the highest amounts found in drugstores), Perlite, and Retinol. Which is great for someone who is closer to 40 than 30 (but still doesn't look it:).

Makeup Review: CoverGirl & Katy Perry Are A Purrfect Match!

CoverGirl Katy Perry Lipstick & Mascara Review

I'm always a little pessimistic with celebrity beauty collaborations but the recent Katy Perry collaboration with CoverGirl has made me an optimist! The Katy Kat makeup line blends two of my favourite things together - cats and makeup - and comes up with a fun and chic collection of mascaras and matte lipsticks with fabulous colour names like Magenta Minx and Maroon Meow.

I was approached by BzzAgent to review one of the Katy Perry CoverGirl Collections mascaras and lipsticks and chose the Perry Blue Mascara and Maroon Meow Matte Lipstick. I haven't worn a blue mascara since I was 13 years old and thought it would be fun to try it out and I fell in love with the Maroon Meow shade (and name) and just had to try it for myself!
