Turning the beauty world on its head, is what avant-garde cosmetics guru Illamasqua does best, and the 'Human Fundamentalism' collection for Spring/Summer 2012 does exactly that, but in a very sly way; yes, there are the uncommon colours (white eyeliner, blue lipstick) but it's how this brand...

When Essie was acquired by cosmetics giant L'Oréal, several shades were created exclusively for the US retail market, with 'Dive Bar' among them. As I'm a total pushover for moody teal hues, I knew that I had to have this beauty, but living in Canada, I was out of luck. Enter a US vacation,...

Once applied, the Illuminator for body imparts a "beautiful bronzed radiance" and I found that it dried well in about 15 minutes or so, making it transfer-safe once dry. In the above article, well-known NARS makeup artist James Boehmer illustrates the way to properly apply the various NARS...

It may be ommorphia beauty bar's 2nd birthday, but a huge hug of appreciation goes out to all of you who take the time to look at, read, comment, or simply breeze through and make me feel so special ... I happily (and willingly) turn myself into a guinea pig to review all these incredible...

ommorphia beauty bar came in 3rd place for Best Beauty Blog in Canada! To say I was stunned, would be THE UNDERSTATEMENT OF THE YEAR. I'm still sporting a huge smile on my face! I consider this a huge honour and I'm so proud that all my hard work has not gone unnoticed. Thank you to every...
