Hello friends! Today I have an exciting post. A few weeks ago I had the privilege of attending the Canadian launch for Dermablend, a high coverage makeup line. I had not heard of Dermablend before the event, but the brand really intrigued me. The invite was filled with photos of incredible transformations and how people use Dermablend to cover imperfections. The night was both informative and entertaining. and I had a great time!
A couple of weeks ago, I got the chance to attend the ChickAdvisor Showcase. If you haven’t heard, ChickAdvisor is product review site that features everything from baby products, to food, to beauty items. I joined the site some time ago, and I’ve been posting reviews ever since. One of the site’s biggest draws is their Product Review Club. Members have the opportunity to be sent products to try out and then post a review on the site. I’ve been able to try a lot of great products through this program. I’d like to think it was one of the reasons I wanted to start blogging!
The ChickAdvisor Showcase takes the Product Review Club to the next level. It’s essentially a ‘live’ reviewing session where they present you with products and you post a review on ChickAdvisor on the spot! This was my second Showcase (I did a recap of the first ChickAdvisor Showcase here). It was an amazing afternoon filled with great blogger friends!
I’ve talked about BITE multiple times on this blog, and it’s probably one of my favourite cosmetics companies. BITE Beauty is a lipstick brand that is made with food grade ingredients so you can essentially eat them!
BITE Beauty has a ‘lip lap’ in New York which you can create your own lipstick. You can choose the colour, the scent, and the finish. A dream? I think so too. Very recently, BITE opened up a lip lab in Toronto and I had to check it out!
Hello friends! If you’re like me, you watch tons of beauty videos online. If you’re also like me, you’ve heard the name Zoella. Since when I first started watching beauty videos god knows when, Zoella was definitely a constant name in cyberspace. She is arguably one of the most popular beauty blogger/ vloggers out there. Her empire continues to grow including books and a beauty line! Today I have a review of one product from her cosmetics line and a GIVEAWAY!
If there is one thing that I love in this world it’s lipsticks. They can change your look with a simple swipe. Today I have a review of the recently released Mary Kay Gel Semi- Matte lipsticks. Spoiler: I’m pretty impressed with them!
Hi folks! Today I have something much different than my usual beauty posts! I got the chance to review a new beauty book called The Compassionate Chick’s Guide to DIY Beauty. I’m not much for a DIYer and neither vegan or gluten free. For all of these reasons, I was very interested in trying this book out. I thought I could learn a lot and have some fun experimenting with some of the recipes!
If you know my makeup habits, you’ll know that I consider myself a makeup wipe connoisseur. I try any and all makeup wipes and end up using them as the main way to take off my makeup. I definitely know that makeup wipes aren’t the most effective way to remove makeup, but my laziness always seems to take precedent. I’m also fully away that using a wipe a day to just be thrown in the garbage is pretty wasteful.
I was recently approached to try the FaceOff Makeup Removing Cloth. A microfiber cloth that is supposed to take off your makeup with just warm water?! Sign me up!
Hello! Earlier this month I got the chance to attend a Make Up For Ever event for the launch of their new Artist Rouge lipsticks. Make Up For Ever is probably one of my favourite brands. A lot of their products were love at first swatch and these lipsticks were no exception! I had such a fun night with some other beauty blogger friends plus I got to see an old friend from school!
So unless you’ve been under a rock, I’m sure you’ve heard of Pokemon Go. It’s the AR, geolocation game based on the popular Pokemon franchise that is taking the world by storm. I’ve been a huge fan of the Pokemon series already so this Pokemon game for mobile devices has been interesting! I’ve been definitely playing but not quite addicted. 😉 I’m more excited for the new Sun and Moon games coming out soon! Anyways, in the Pokemon Go games once you reach level 5, you get the choice between 3 teams: Instinct (Yellow, Zapdos), Mystic (Blue, Articuno), and Valor (Red, Moltres). I was inspired by these 3 teams and their colours and decided to do 3 different makeup looks representing them!
Some time ago, I got the chance to go to a NYX Prom event (which you can read about here). The theme was done impeccably and we got the chance to take home a backpack with some goodies. One of the said goodies was the Beauty School Dropout palette in Graduate. The palette is massive with 35 eye shadows, 2 contour powders, 2 highlighting powders and 3 blushes. I’ve had a chance to play around with the powders and am definitely ready to give you my opinion on them!
