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,...

It's true that I have been a fan of beauty products & cosmetics since probably before I was born (I'm fairly certain that it all began then!), but I haven't always been as vigilant with my skin care as I should have. As I got older and began noticing changes happening to my "canvas" ie: my...

Even though 3 coats gives the fullest coverage, I actually preferred the look with 2 – resembling beautifully translucent sea glass. A limited edition shade released for spring, this is one hue that absolutely should not be missed – unless you happen to dislike totally unique and jaw-dropping...

and it did, as evidenced by these 4 incredible beauties. Picking my favourite among them is difficult, but if forced to choose, I would have to say 'IKB: 2012′ for its über-intensity and 'Aqua Lily' for its oceanic appeal – stain potential, notwithstanding. *I recently learned that Ji is...

I should have actually begun by dedicating this post to my good friend Liz of Beauty Reductionista (and by association, to my "lil sis" Tracy of Beauty-Reflections - both fellow blush fiends!), for inspiring me to finally take stock of all the blushes I actually own. While blush, or "rouge"...

Another thing I loved was that the same scent is consistent throughout all the products, with everything harmonizing so beautifully, and no discordantly competing fragrances. On the days that I skip using the 'Light Oil Treatment', I exchange that by applying a touch of the 'Hydrating...

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...

Well, to be more accurate, Ommorphia Beauty Bar was officially launched into cyberspace a year ago today! As the ad says: "you've come a long way, baby"! Little did I know or even understand what I was letting myself in for; hours of detailed work, frequently being at the mercy of a...

This past Friday, August 24th 2012, my family was dealt a terrible blow; my nephew's beautiful young bride was tragically taken away from us. On June 9th, 2012, I was dancing at their wedding and telling them both how much I loved them. Today, my heart will be breaking as we lay this...

a year ago this coming September 27th, "ommorphia beauty bar" was born! Little did I know then where this creative outlet would lead me, or what amount of commitment and work I was letting myself in for, and finally, the many amazing people I was destined to meet! I am awed by the warm...
