'Holy Grail' is an antiqued looking golden hue, with very subtle reddish and green flecks of shimmer in its base. This is the colour I imagine that chalice of legend would be; a deep yet vibrant gold. At two coats, it still isn't fully opaque, but I prefer it that way as it will

For a while I did quick reviews of empties on Instagram. That quickly fell by the wayside, so I'm going to take a page out of other beauty bloggers' books and start doing empties round-ups here. Quick notes: My hair must have cheap taste, because there wasn't any noticeable difference...

Reflecting on this latest batch of empties is a bit like a greatest hits and misses retrospective of summer. Some have been featured on the blog previously (in which case I have an opportunity to revisit my previous opinions—yay!) and some are new to this post. Let's dive in, shall we? Quick...

It is Christmas time and the holy grail of fashion has finally arrived in my closet, my very own Louis Vuitton bag, especially made for me. It comes in one of the most supple leathers I have ever touched. Another cool thing is the interior leather patch that has my name stamped on it. It...

A solid choice, but not a Holy Grail. Would I repurchase? Maybe.

Quick notes: Like Quick Study, this empty came from me using the Remedy Bar vial to refill a roll-on I already had. Would I repurchase? Yes. Quick notes: I was skeptical that this roll-on was doing anything for me until I used it during the last cycle, after not having used it for a...

These empties round-ups are quickly becoming one of my favourite recurring beauty features on the blog. Not only do they allow me to revisit products and possibly revise my initial impressions, they're a good way of keeping tabs on the must-haves and the repeats in my roster. Here are the skin...

Quick notes: This is my Holy Grail nail polish remover and the one I keep buying over and over again. I like the pump-top bottle and the fact that it doesn't smell noxious like other nail polish removers. Plus, the acetone-mixed-with-gentler-ingredients formula is effective and quick at...
