Essie Fall 2014 Dress to Kilt Composite BeautygeeksEssie’s fall 2014 release Dress to Kilt is just around the corner and I’m really just not ready for fall colours yet. (Are you?) My nail-painting pastime is tough! I have to be a season or two ahead of you in terms of colour – in June, I was already knee-deep in the darker shades of Fall. Don’t get me wrong, I love the absolute simplicity of fall shades. But to me, they signal the end of summer. Luckily for the transition this year, Essie is wickedly shiny. Like, wickedly. [geek on]

Bite Agave Lip Mask in Champagne_rose gold pearl natural balmWhen I gushed about the Fresh Sugar Lip Serum Advanced Therapy that launched recently at Sephora, my friend Lesa wondered why anyone might need it if they had the Bite Agave Lip Mask. Three things: 1) Lesa Hannah is the Beauty Director of Fashion Magazine and she knows things; 2) I get asked a lot about what to try for chronically dry, cracked lips (hint: not waxy stick balms ever); and 3) I hadn’t tried Bite Agave Lip Mask. One of those three things has changed. [geek on]

Katy Perry prismatic nails how-to video_Katy Perry exact nails_Prismatic World TourIf you want to copy the glittering Katy Perry prismatic nails from the Toronto stop of her Prismatic World Tour, just ask nail expert Leeanne Colley, owner of Tips Nail Bar. She knows precisely what Katy wore on her nails last Friday and Saturday night because she was in Katy Perry’s dressing room giving her the disco-ball gel manicure herself. Actually, you don’t have to ask. In the video below, not only does Leeanne tell Beautygeeks what she used, she walks us through the steps and demos a nail-polish option for non-gel users too. Isn’t she nice?  [geek on]

Lancome Grandiose mascara and wand diagram

Every time I pull out my Lancome Grandiose mascara I chuckle — the brand trademarked swan-neck! But I also feel a sense of satisfaction at having another mascara I really like. That swan-neck™ — *grin* — wand, and small brush, as well as the formula itself, have made my mascara moments better. It’s even inspired a Lancome Grandiose mascara review video! [geek on]
