I think possibly the winter might have been a better time to test this out, but since the warmth has barely hit here in Canada, onwards and upwards I say!

Lorna Loves: ‘I*Light Organic Advanced Brightening & Line Smoothing Eye Treatment’ by Sweetsations Therapy.

As a product tester I occasionally receive products at a discount in exchange for an impartial, unbiased review. Mostly, these don’t require me to post to my blog and that’s how I like it. Occasionally I will take on one that requires a post here, but it always leaves me a little nervous.

What if I don’t like it? Well, nervous or no, I consider it a point of pride to be totally honest when testing and reviewing a product. So the good news is, with me, you know what you’re getting.

Covergirl Outlast Stay Fabulous 3 in 1 Foundation Review & Rate (BzzAgent)

  Thanks to Bzzagent I had the chance to try a new foundation from Covergirl Outlast and really, I needed it. We all know we’re supposed to dispose of our makeup after a certain amount of time, but up until this year I only wore makeup about once a year and it seemed a waste, so my current foundation is pretty old.

Pro Tip: If you prefer to skip straight to the rating and a handy list of pros and cons of the product, go to the bottom of the article!

Steam Controller Review

Steam Controller Review – Local Co-op not so hot

  When it works, the Steam controller is a marvel. The box and packaging are beautiful, easily feeling as special and exciting as any new Apple product. A cute cardboard wraparound showed the details of the inside of the controllers, something I can only enjoy visually but that might actually prove useful to the more tech-savvy amongst us. The setup was quick and painless and each game had settings to customise the experience and make everything how you want it. With any new technology there’s going to be a learning curve and as someone with no dexterity and bad memory I experience this even switching from one console to another. The Steam controller was no exception.

The Steam controller features two ‘Haptic’ feedback mouse control pads to allow users to emulate keyboard and mouse controls.

  One issue I noticed was that the gamepad’s B button was closer to where the Xbox 360 controller’s A button was, making me constantly press the B button under the assumption that it was in fact the A button. In time, I’m sure I’ll adjust to that however and it’s hardly Valve’s fault. I might prefer the haptic gamepad and the buttons switch places, but I’m sure many configurations were tested and this was found to be the smartest. The haptic pad itself gave feedback as intended and was just as smooth and easy to use as described by early reviewers. I absolutely loved the addition of the easily clickable buttons on the underside of the hand grips and the positioning and ease of use of the triggers. As someone who’d experienced finger strain from PS3 controller triggers in the past, I felt Steam’s version to be a lot more gentle on the old digits. Continue reading Steam Controller Review
