Hello! Today I have a recap of Gen Beauty Toronto 2017 which was held last weekend. I went last year and was luke warm about the experience. This year I was generously invited by a friend to join in. I thought I would do a review of this year’s festivities in comparison to last year with also a look into the goodies we got.
As many of you know, BITE is my jam. I LOVE BITE! They recently shared one of my photos on Instagram (I think mistakenly twice) and I died. The photo was of the Love, BITE kit which contains two Multisticks, a Prismatic Pearl Creme Lip Gloss, and a mini mirror. Someone asked for swatches so here we go!
This #NailsOfTheDay is a bit of a throwback. I honestly really don’t do many nail looks much anymore, just because of timing. One of my highschool nail art favs is the crescent moon – reverse french tips. It’s super easy and I think it looks really nice. Here is a mini tutorial of how you can get the look too.
This is a bit of an unexpected post as I was planning just to use this on Instagram. On the weekend I redeemed some of my Shoppers Drug Mart Optimum Points for the new Lancome Matte Shaker in Pink Power. I’ve been hearing so many great things about this and was excited to finally give it a go!
With summer weather arriving with a wham, season changes always makes me want to change up my routine. Or at least add a couple of items here and there to mix it up a bit. Moor Spa recently reached out, giving me the opportunity to try out a few of their products! I decided to pick a couple items that either seemed ‘different’ or ones that I didn’t have a lot of (aka no face masks)!
Hi friends! Anyone else have an ever expanding collection of foil samples? Mine are definitely getting unruly, so I thought I would try something fun. I noticed that I had the right samples to do a full face, so I thought I would give it a try. When I use foil samples I usually use them one at a time (when I remember). This seemed like a good way to cut down on my samples but also try some new products all at once.
Mary Kay recently came out with two limited edition cheek powders in support of their Beauty that Counts campaign. Both powders are super cute in a heart-shaped compact. I’ll show you some swatches along with a bit about the charity that these products support.
A staple brand in the drugstore is Maybelline New York. They carry everything and are well known for their foundation and mascara. I mentioned recently that I really need to get back to the drugstore and try out some products. ChickAdvisor must have heard my calls cause I recently got chosen to try out a Product Review Club opportunity with Maybelline.
Becca is such an amazing brand producing some of the best face products in the game. One collab that put this brand on the map is the Jaclyn Hill collection. Champagne Pop to my knowledge is one of the highest sold products at Sephora EVER. That’s so incredible! I think I own literally every single iteration of Champagne Pop other than the split pans. You could say I’m a fan. When Becca announced the Chrissy Teigen collection I was so intrigued. The promo pics I saw looked so pretty, and being the complete makeup psycho I am, I snatched it up! But a question remains. How do the Jaclyn Hill and Chrissy Teigen palettes stack up against each other?
Something I’ve seemed to collect more and more of over the years is foundation. One of my very first posts on my blog was actually attempting to find the perfect foundation. After three years, I think I may have found the closest thing to perfection. I’ve been using the Charlotte Tilbury foundation for months and I LOVE it!
