Overall - 4/5
Lancome's Grandiose is the most exciting mascara innovation in a long time. The design is absolutely beautiful.

It's been such a long time since there was product I was really excited to try. Honestly, between my time at work dealing with cosmetic packaging and formulations, and testing and reviewing products on my personal time, I've kind been over makeup lately (sick of it). Then I saw ads for Lancome's Grandiose and heard buzz regarding its launch, and finally I was excited to write about makeup again! I'm all about product innovations and I think the design of this mascara is the best innovation in mascara packaging in a long time.

Lancome's Grandiose mascara is both romantic and luxurious to me. The design resembles a pretty rose in a vase and it reminds me so much of the enchanted rose in Beauty and the Beast (my favorite Disney Princess story of all time). The cap is transparent with a rose embedded in the center. The design features a swan neck wand for easy application, and the small brush grabs even the tiniest of lashes and coats them evenly from root to tip. The swan neck wand was extremely intuitive to use. Usually, I have a bit of trouble applying mascara to my left eye, but with this wand it was breeze. The bend really does help in application and fanning out the lashes.

Grandiose mascara applies very dark and you can do several coats without clumps. Above you can see my natural lashes, 1 coat of mascara (for a natural look), 2 coats, and 3 coats (for a dramatic look). This mascara doesn't hold a curl well for me, but it does a terrific job at adding length, separating, and defining my lashes. It also makes my lash line so dark, that I don't need to wear eye liner. Due to my crazy oily eyelids, I do find some smudging at around the 6 HR mark (can easily be wiped away). I believe a waterproof version will come out soon, so I can't wait to try it. I'm hoping to experience less smudging with the WP version, and also a formula that can hold a curl better. In addition, this mascara is very easy to remove (even if you layer it on crazy like I do).

I am absolutely in love with the innovative design and swan neck application wand. I believe Lancome (L'oreal) has a patent on the curved wand, but I really think that this feature will be something we can look forward to in other brands, in the future. So even if you don't love Lancome mascaras, be excited my friends! =]

Makeup Forever HD Invisible Cover Foundation Review (120 and 123)
by Annie Diep on Jul 15, 2014

Makeup Forever HD Invisible Cover Foundation Review 120 123
Overall – 3/5
I use this all the time but I don't love it or hate it.

I’ve been using this foundation for years and time after time I’ve gone back to it even though the makeup junkie in me is yelling at me test out a different foundation. Makeup Forever’s HD Invisible Cover Foundation has definitely become my go to foundation over the years, but for reasons even I don't really know.

When I first picked this up, I was looking for a daily foundation that has decent coverage but still looks natural. Makeup Forever’s HD liquid seemed to fit the bill. The finish is semi matte and coverage is light to medium. It doesn't oxidize too much (though I’ve purchased some funk bottles where the foundation inside the bottle has completed oxidized - probably bad batches). Foundation comes in 26 shades with neutral and warm undertones. I have it in 2 shades, one for winter and one for summer.

1. Bare face (ahHhHhHH), 2. Foundation on left half 3. MUFE’s HD Foundation in N123 on entire face

It’s not the most long wearing foundation, and I definitely have to set it with powder if I want to get 4 plus hours of wear (for reference, I have combination skin to the extreme – either really dry or really oily). Also when my skin is really bad and freaking out, I find that this foundation isn't very flattering because it clings onto dry spots and acne. I mean most foundations will do this, but this one really clings!

Makeup Forever HD Invisible Cover Foundation Review 120 123

You’d think I’d be in love with MUFE’s HD Invisible Cover because I’ve been using it for so long, have repurchased it many times, and even recommended to friends, but the truth is … I don’t. Really, it has become one of those no fuss no muss type products for me. I’ve grown comfortable with it, and that’s why I think I keep going back to it. MUFE’s HD liquid foundation is like that old pair of ripped jeans or that ex bf t shirt you just can’t seem to shake (Oh ya - I’m using that analogy haha). I think even when I find my HG foundation, I’ll probably still go back to this from time to time.

Is there a product you feel indifferent about, but still use all the time? Have you tried Makeup Forever’s HD Invisible Cover foundation? Share your thoughts with me by commenting below, or message me via twitter or Instagram.

I'm a Sample Killah!!
by Annie Diep on Jul 7, 2014



Recently I came across this challenge hosted by Kalyn Lord of www.kalynlord.com . For the month of July, she’s challenging beauty junkies to use up as many samples and ‘foilies’ as possible. Now, you know that every makeup and beauty lover has a secret/not so secret stash of random samples. I’ve got a box or two! Though I’ve said to myself many times before that I would get to them, it just never happens. With this challenge I am hoping to get through at least half my stash by the end of this month. Am I being overly optimistic?



For more information about the Sample Killah challenge or to join, please see Kalyn’s original post http://www.kalynlord.com/sample-killah-2. There’s also a giveaway for participating so be sure to check it out!

Participants will be posting weekly updates on their twitter and instagram accounts #samplekillah. To follow my progress, don’t forget to subscribe to my instagram account @fanniediep.

Revlon Rio Rush Collection for summer 2014 by Gucci Westman! Look at the colors! This collection was inspired by The Carnaval in Rio de Janeiro; considered the biggest festival in the world celebrating dance, color, and life. Revlon's Rio Rush collection features 2 new Colorstay 16 HR eye shadow palettes in Wild and Exotic, 1 new Creme Gel Eyeliner in Rio Blue, 3 new Super Lustrous Lipsticks in Carnival Spirit, Brazilian Tan, and Sultry Samba, and 4 limited edition Nail Enamels in Carioca Crush, Copa Sunset, Gold Goddess, and Oi Beautiful.

The eye shadows were what I was most excited about in this collection (which is funny because I hardly ever wear eye shadow anymore). Here's a quick look using Wild eye shadow palette (loving the orange), Rio Blue creme gel liner, and Brazilian Tan lipstick.

Also rocking Carioca Crush on the nails. I LOVE this color!

I think Gucci Westman did a good job with this collection. I was excited to use everything and all the colors reminded me of the fun summer festivals I love so much. The feel good energies when groups of people come to together to celebrate and have a good time is just amazing. I'm a big cheese ball sometimes I'm moved to tears from all the happiness and excitement. Hahaha I'm a loser I know!

Let's take a closer look at the products Revlon Canada sent me. I've included the suggested retail price (CAD) for reference and for those who might be interested.
Colorstay 16 HR Eye Shadow in Exotic $12.95 - Texture is little chalky.
Colorstay 16 HR Eye Shadow in Wild $12.95 - The highlight color is a little chalky but the rest them are fine and colors are pretty.
Creme Gel Eyeliner in Rio Blue $10.95 - Dark metallic blue color. Not quite opaque enough for my liking and was hard to get an even application but it stays put! Also not sure how I like the applicator... It was a little awkward to use.
Super Lustrous Lipstick in Brazilian Tan $9.50 - A light brown/nude shade that doesn't wash me out! (WaHhHhHH!??)
Super Lustrous Lipstick in Carnival Spirit $9.50 - Sheer orange shade. A wearable orange shade!
Nail Enamel in Carioca Crush $5.95 - Electric blue color. Love the color but it needs a top coat because it dulls quickly!
Nail Enamel in Gold Goddess $5.95 - Flakey gold polish. Looks pretty over darker colors.

Biotherm Aquasource Moisturizer, Deep Serum, and Nuit Review
by Annie Diep on Jul 2, 2014

* Products provided by PR. All opinions are my own.
Biotherm Aquasource Review deep serum nuit night

Initially I had doubts that Biotherm Aquasource products would be hydrating enough for my skin, because I've been heavily medicating it to clear up acne (causing it to be even more dry and sensitive than usual). I was so surprised by the results and how much I ended up liking these products! All Biotherm Aquasource products contain mannose and life plankton ingredients that boast the ability to improve skin quality and health, by boosting moisture and promoting skin regeneration. I've been using these products for a few months now and I have to say that my skin feels more hydrated and looks a lot smoother. All three products have a gel consistency and smell like oranges!

Biotherm Aquasource Review deep serum nuit night
Overall - 4/5
Biotherm Aquasource is a good daily moisturizer. Leaves my skin feeling soft and smooth and wears well under makeup. You only need a little bit for your entire face and applying too much can make you oily.

Biotherm Aquasource Review deep serum nuit night
Overall - 3/5
Biotherm Aquasource Deep Serum, has a more liquid consistency compared to the regular moisturizer and Nuit. It also contains pink light reflectors (- not very visible when applied). This serum can be worn under makeup but I notice I get oily rather quickly, so when I'm using makeup I tend to skip this.

Biotherm Aquasource Review deep serum nuit night
Overall - 3/5
Biotherm Aquasource Nuit is a night serum/jelly. When I use this, my skin is soft, smooth and plump the next morning!

I really like the Biotherm Aquasource moisturizer. The two serums are also good but I don’t think I need them both. I'm leaning towards Nuit just a little bit more, but honestly either one would be a good addition to your skin care regimen.

I recommend these products for people who have dry and perhaps combination skin. Be very careful not to use too much because these products can make you quite oily by midday. Not sure if I would recommend these to oily skin types.

Revlon Colorstay Moisture Stain Reviews (Parisian Passion, Shanghai Sizzle, and Milan Moment)

Revlon Colorstay Moisture Stain Review Parisian Passion Shanghai Sizzle Milan Moment
Overall - 4/5
Feels like lip balm. Great color pay off. Nice packaging.

Revlon Colorstay Moisture Stain Review Parisian Passion Shanghai Sizzle Milan Moment

Man was I excited when I saw these bad boys at Revlon's Colorstay Celebration event a few weeks ago. They are now available in Canada (as of June 2014 - suggested retail $12.95 CAD), and come in 12 different shades. I have Parisian Passion, Shanghai Sizzle, and Milan Moment. Love the packaging, it's very clean and sleek. The shape of the applicator is nice, picks up the perfect amount of product. When you first apply Revlon's Colorstay Moisture Stain, it feels really cool and wet (sounds kind of gross, but there's no other way to describe it my friends). After it's had some time to sink in, the texture becomes smooth and creamy, much like a lip balm. It's not sticky like a lip gloss at all, even though it looks glossy upon the initial application. I usually apply the moisture stain, then quickly blot with some paper towel to achieve a matte finish (moisture stain doesn't stick or cling onto the paper towel). The staying power isn't bad and I find that these do stain my lips, even Milan Moment, the lightest of the shades I own. I get about 5 hours of wear and only really need to reapply after eating. Ooo almost forgot to mention, the scent isn't really noticeable when you have the moisture stains on, but I just took a whiff and it reminds of school glue, or like sweet musky coconuts or something.

Revlon Colorstay Moisture Stain in Parisian Passion. Parisian Passion is dark berry color but wears slightly on the red side on my pigmented lips. I actually wish this was a bit more plummy and purple on me.

Revlon Colorstay Moisture Stain in Shanghai Sizzle. Shanghai Sizzle is a bright orange red. Love this color for spring and summer!

Revlon Colorstay Moisture Stain Review Parisian Passion Shanghai Sizzle Milan Moment
Revlon Colorstay Moisture Stain in Milan Moment. I'm going to describe Milan Moment as a coral nude shade. I really didn't think I was going to like this one. When I found this in my swag bag at home, I was thinking 'Wah? Did I pick this shade?' Muahaha, now it's actually my favorite of the three. It's a lot less orange on, and it's just a really soft and pretty color. Love it.

I can't wait to pick up a few extra shades from this range! Have you tried Revlon's Colorstay Moisture Stains? As always, I'd love to hear your thoughts, share via Twitter, Instagram, or comment below!

Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupte Perle Lipstick 110 Incandescent Orange Review
by Annie Diep on Apr 9, 2014

Yves Saint Laurent YSL Volupte Perle Review 110 Incandescent Orange
Overall - 3/5
Beautiful lipstick bullet. Wearable orange color.

This lipstick has been in my stash forever. I haven't used it much because the color isn't something I would normally reach for, and the formula is kind of weird, but since orange lips are so trendy this spring, I decided to dust this off and really give it a chance. Now the spring trend is actually vibrant orange lips, and even though I'm known to rock them bold colors, when it comes to wearing orange lipstick, I'm opting for something a little lighter and little more wearable. YSL Volupte Perle lipstick in Incandescent Orange turned out to be perfect. It's a sheer orange lipstick, pink undertones, contains tiny flecks of gold glitter, and has a pearl/satin sheen finish. I have to admit, though the color and finish didn't appeal to me at first, it's really starting to grow on me.

Yves Saint Laurent YSL Volupte Perle Review 110 Incandescent Orange

So a big reason why I haven't used this lipstick, is because I hate the feeling of it when you first apply it. This is one of those lipsticks that just sits on your lips. It's got a super slick texture to it, and the glitters are extremely gritty and you can really feel it on your lips. It feels like I'm exfoliating my lips with glitter when I press my lips together. If you give it some time to sink in, the slickness of the lipstick does go away, and you don't notice the glitters as much but you still kind of feel them.

3 Fake Lash Application Tips by Celebrity Makeup Artist Gina Brooke - Shu Uemura Master Class
by Annie Diep on Mar 31, 2014

gina brooke fake lash application tips shu uemura
Last week I won a pair of tickets to attend a Shu Uemura master makeup class, with celebrity makeup artist and and beauty expert Gina Brooke. She did a great makeup demonstration with a lot of emphasis on prepping the skin for makeup and having good skin care. She shared a lot of makeup application tips but the ones I found most helpful were her tips for applying fake lashes!

3 Fake Lash Application Tips from Gina Brooke!

1. Single lashes should be placed between lashes and not on the eyelids
2. Apply single lashes on an angle not straight on
3. To link your natural lashes to your fake lashes, use an eyelash curler and just tap them together. Don't squeeze and don't apply mascara to your fake lashes


I know I have a pack or two of single lashes/lash clusters sitting around. I couldn't figure out how to apply them before but I can't wait to try them now.

light bulb foundation shu uemura
On another note, the Shu Uemura lightbulb foundation and sponge looks pretty interesting and I really want to try it!

* Thank you Elaine (www.torontobeautyreviews.com) for the tickets!

Fake eyelashes are all the rage and I know people who wear them religiously! How often do you wear fake lashes?

Blossom x BKR Beauty Water Challenge!
by Annie Diep on Mar 30, 2014

* BKR bottle provided by Blossom Lounge

BKR bottle review blossom lounge water challenge
Do you drink enough water everyday? In the month of March Blossom Lounge teamed up with 12 bloggers, myself included, provided us each with an adorable BKR bottle, and challenged us to drink 2.5 l (that's 5 bottles) of water every day for 30 days! The goal and point of this challenge was to drink our way to better skin and overall health. Since the beginning of this year I've been working on clearing up my skin and helping it heal, so you can imagine how eager and excited I was to do this.

Here's my deal. When I'm at home in front of the computer (or when I was at office), I'm pretty good with drinking water. I always have a cup and I'll sip on water all day long. With that said, on days I'm doing anything else (which is most days) whether it be a day out running errands, or at home just doing chores or something, sometimes I don't end up drinking any water at all. Not a drop. Terrible, I know! So how hard was it for me to suddenly start drinking 2.5 l of water a day? I have to admit, it was really hard! The first day or two I couldn't even get through 5 bottles but as I kept at it, it became easier and easier (- they say it takes 21 days to develop new habits).

BKR bottle review blossom lounge water challenge

So here is my experience and results. I still have acne. Drinking water ain't gonna clear that shiet up. However what I have noticed, is that overall my skin does look and feel better. The skin under my eyes especially is less dull and shallow, the area seems to be more plump and the skin more elastic and smooth. My mouth and lips don't feel dry like they used to as well, and thank goodness because I've been wearing tons of lipstick and I haven't had to deal with super chapped lips like I had before.

Even though I notice improvement in my skin, I'm actually more pleased with how I feel after starting this water challenge. For one, I actually know what it feels to be thirsty now, which I think is the funniest thing, but seriously! Before I started this challenge, I was so used to being dehydrated, I didn't really recognize the feeling of being thirsty. It just felt normal, I didn't know any better. Now I'm always like 'Uh dry, I need my wata!' Since drinking more water I also feel less groggy, I have more energy, and I'm in a better mood.

Another thing I noticed since starting this challenge, is how much juice I used to drink. So yummy but loaded with sugar and other stuff. I still have juice now but maybe just a small cup instead of a large glass or two like I did before!

At first I didn't know Blossom Lounge picked me to take part in this challenge and I didn't receive my BKR water bottle until March 7 (which is when I started my 30 days), so technically I still have a week to go while most of the other bloggers participating will be finishing up their 30 days this weekend. I will do a final post at the end of my 30 days to give you guys my final thoughts and results! In the mean time you may want to check out the experience and results of the other awesome ladies who took part in the Blossom Lounge x BKR Beauty Water Challenge. Check this Blossom Lounge blog post for more information and links!

Good Morning Products!
by Annie Diep on Mar 18, 2014

morning products regime
How many products do you say good morning to? For a makeup and beauty junkie, I'm actually quite lazy and low maintenance, so I didn't think I used that many products in the morning, but man oh man the items sure do add up! I shower in the morning as well so that also adds a few items to the list! Let's take a look at my current morning products.

Shower gel - LUSH Olive Branch. I use this as a shampoo as well as a shower gel
Conditioner - (not pictured)
Bar of soap - Even though I have body wash and shower gels, I have to use bar soap. I just feel dirty if I don't.
Tooth paste - (not pictured)
Face wash - Cetaphil Oily Skin Cleanser
Face scrub - St.Ives Apricot Scrub
Medicated acne pads - Oxy pads for Sensitive skin
Acne Treatment - Clean and Clear Advantage Spot Treatment
Moisturizer - Pure+Simple Skin Drink
Eye cream - Benefit It's Potent!
Lipbalm - Epic Blend Cherry

I don't actually wear makeup everyday but when I do, my 'regular' makeup face is pretty simple and of course the products varies but I definitely use...
Primer
Foundation
Powder
Blush
Mascara
Lippie
Brow Pencil


So there you have it. I use 18 different products every morning! Yikes.

How many products do you use every morning?


Review - Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics (OCC) Lip Tar Black Dahlia
by Annie Diep on Mar 17, 2014

OCC Black Dahlia Review Swatch Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics
Overall - 3/5
I've been dying to try OCC lip tars and finally grabbed a few at the OCC booth at IMATS last year. Even my friends went crazy for them. Among the colors I purchased was Black Dahlia a red black, oxblood color. I was really expecting a super dark vampy color that might be borderline scary, but I was surprised at how wearable it ended being. I do have a love hate relationship with it though.

Black Dahlia definitely didn't turn out as dark and black as I thought it would. The product seems to sink in and fade pretty fast and looks only dark on my lips upon application, then it fades to a dark cherry color (it can almost look purple sometimes). The finish is very glossy and only when I use a good amount does it stain my lips (which is disappointing because I really wanted this product to leave a stain - I don't know why I just had that expectation). For a lippie that has undertones of brown, it's not terrible at yellowing my eyes and teeth (brown lippies do that, so test and check that smile before you commit to a brown lipstick). Black dahlia was also surprisingly less opaque compared to the other shades I purchased, it's like a super pigmented lip gloss. You can wear a tiny amount for that stained look or build it up for a darker lip which is nice. I also love using OCC's Black Dahlia as a cheek stain!

OCC Black Dahlia Review Swatch Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics
This could easily be a 4/5 product for me, but the application is time consuming and not very forgiving at all! It bleeds and smears quite easily and I'm not the best at makeup application so it gets frustrating. Despite it being a pain to use, I still do really like Black Dahlia.

Have you tried OCC's Black Dahlia? What is darkest vampiest shade of lipstick you own and when do you rock it?

Embracing My Inner Vixen With Revlon
by Annie Diep on Mar 14, 2014

Revlon makes me blush colorburst standout swatch
Over a month ago for Valentine's Day, Revlon PR sent out a little survey to beauty bloggers to find our perfect date night look. We were then sent a cute Valentine's day package filled with Revlon products to help us achieve that perfect look for the special day. Well for me there was no big date on Valetine's this year, and unfortunately in the process of reorganizing my makeup, I set this lovely box aside and didn't rediscover it until yesterday. I pulled open the card that came with the package and at the top of the card it read, 'This Valentine's Day embrace your inner vixen!' It's no longer Valentine's Day but hey, I can embrace my inner vixen any day of the year I want! So let's do this.

Revlon makes me blush colorburst standout swatch Revlon makes me blush colorburst standout swatch
I used Revlon's cream blush in Charmed, and layered the powder blush in Mauvelous over top as suggested, and finished the look with colorburst matte balm in Standout. Kept my eyes super simple because I had errands to run, and I didn't want to go too cray cray with the makeup. First impressions of these products... I liiiiiiike.

Revlon makes me blush colorburst standout swatch
The illustration on the card is really pretty. On the inside it reads
'Vixen - You are a chick who knows what she wants and gets what she wants. You love to look hot and always be the center of your man's world. Your date look is very much the same, smoky eyes and sexy reds. Your confidence in yourself is your power, which makes your man blush with desire.'

This is funny to me and I try to be like 'nah, no way that's not me,' but I think my friends will read this and be like 'yep.'

Revlon makes me blush colorburst standout swatch
So a quick rundown of the lovely products Revlon sent. I've also included the suggested retail price for anyone who might be interested.
Powder blush in Mauvelous $11.95
Very soft, and blendable.
Cream blush in Charmed $11.95
So pretty, Charmed is a medium rose color. I love that you can use a little bit for a sheer flush of color or you can build up the color for more intensity!
Colorburst in Enticing $9.95
Colorburst Matte Balm in Standout $9.95
Nail Enamel in 660 Divine $6.99


Revlon makes me blush colorburst standout swatch
By the way, how awesome is Standout? Just a beautiful color and the fact that it's matte is awesome! I just can't get enough of this look and I think the products Revlon put together here are just perfect for me. I love bold and intense colors!


So I want to know what products you use to embrace your inner vixen! Comment below, twitter me, or better yet instagram me!
