Cover FX - Covering Up Acne Scarring



Being a guy it's always been one of those taboo things to say that you like makeup but with everyone coming out of the closet these days I might as well say it. I'm straight but I like makeup! There I said it whew what a load off the shoulders.

Parasuco 2011 Warehouse Sale - What You Missed Out On


Last weekend was the Parasuco warehouse sale down at the Toronto Convention Centre on Airport Rd. Here are just a few of the products I was able to capture at the sale with permission from one of the StyleDemocracy event coordinators. What you probably can't tell from the photos is both Fruits & Passion and Parasuco were being hosted in the same space. If you weren't able to capitalize on any of the deals be sure to check them out next year.

Glymm Box December 2011 Review






Delivery packaging:
It arrives in a PINK rectangular cardboard delivery box. SO pretty. It's sealed with a sticker mailing label attached over the opening, like the Luxe Box delivery packaging was. Like the other two sample boxes, the delivery method used is CanadaPost, with tracking. It is the only one out of the three boxes where the sticker label indicated FRAGILE on it. I like that they care enough about the contents to include that. It a flip open lid where there is no branding on the box itself. Sort of neat that they don't need the name on the box to tell you who it's from, just the colour of the box says it all.

Umbra Sale 2011 - Personal Observations



I get dragged to a lot of sales events and the one thing I love to do at a sales event is to observe. When I'm observing the human condition I'm trying to understand why people buy and why they don't buy. When I'm observing the a process I'm trying to understand what works and what doesn't work.

Fruits & Passion 2011 Warehouse Sale - What You Missed Out On



Last weekend was the Fruits & Passion sale down at the International Centre on Airport Rd. Here are just a few of the products I was able to capture at the sale with permission from one of the StyleDemocracy event coordinators. One perk was if you bought a case you would receive an additional 10% off the listed price. Check out our haul to see what we picked up at the sale.

Luxe Box December 2011 Review




Delivery packaging: 
It comes in a brown cardboard delivery box, with a flip open lid that has its website and brand "Loose Button" on it. The delivery method used is CanadaPost, with tracking. Packaging for it is quite secure because the sticker mailing label is attached over the opening, making it difficult to open or if opened, obviously noticeable. Security of the packaging for Luxe Box is much better than Topbox packaging, where the item could be tampered with, undetected.

Fruits & Passion 2011 Warehouse Sale Haul


Packaging
This is what the packaging is like when you leave the sale. A clear bag with the company's name on it, tied up. Security will normally check your receipt, which is stapled to your bag to see if it matches with the items, much like how Costco does.

Umbra 2011 Warehouse Sale - How to Spot Seasoned Veteran Shoppers



There were many different shoppers at the Umbra 2011 Sale in Toronto. Some shoppers seemed new to the idea of event shopping while others really showed off their feathers as they dominated the event.

They say a picture is worth a thousand words but in order to fully appreciate this photo we are going to need about a thousand words to explain what exactly is going on in this photo.

How to Tie a Scarf in 25 Different Ways


Oldie but a goodie. Even more useful now that the weather is getting a lot more colder. I often wondered how some of the scarfs are being tied. I always thought they were bought like that. Watch and enjoy this video from wendyslookbook.

Makeup Transformation - Asian Girl



This makeup transformation was what got me to take notice of the power of makeup about 10 years ago. Pretty crazy how she ends up looking like a K-pop star at the end. The play by play photos were a nice touch. Another oldie but ahead of its time years ago.

Topbox December 2011 Review



Delivery packaging:
It comes in a cylinder tube shape, wrapped in brown paper delivered through CanadaPost, with tracking. Only thing that made it feel a bit insecure was that the delivery paper that it was wrapped in wasn't sealed or secured in any way. The paper was just wrapped and pushed in on the top and bottom. How would I know if someone hadn't tampered with it and just rewrapped it to deliver to me?
