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.
Hello! Welcome back to Essence week on the blog. Today I have a Face of the Day using some of the Spring Summer 2017 collection! The new collection has a lot of great items (at a great price) which makes the products totally accessible!
The weather has been pretty crazy lately, but either way, I’m ready for Spring. Something that’s been getting me in the mood is the new Mary Kay Light, Reinvented collection. Everything is so so gorgeous and I’m so excited to share it with you!
Hi friends! I recently got the chance to go to a Wet N Wild 2017 launch party and was gifted most of the new collection. Wet n Wild is a major drugstore favourite for me just because of the quality coupled with their unreal price point. The brand is cruelty free and PETA approved which also gets major brownie points. I’ve been trying out some of the products, and there are some definite wins that I wanted to share! There are face products, lip products, and a product to take it all off!
Hi friends! So if you haven’t heard, peaches have taken over the beauty world. Back in March, Too Faced released their Sweet Peach eyeshadow palette. People went bananas (or should I say peaches?) over the palette. It was so popular that Too Faced brought it back including a slew of other products. I actually did a full review of the palette (which you can read here), so I’m just going to chat about three other products in the collection I was gifted: The Sweet Glow face palette, the Papa Don’t Peach blush, and a Creamy Peach Oil lip gloss.
Philosophy is a brand that I’ve started to really love thanks to a gift set that I got the Christmas before last. It’s a brand that I always sort of saw (anyone remember the Sephora Philosophy shower gel birthday gift?) but never really dove into. I’m going to do a short post today with mini reviews of the items. (Only been a year in the making….haha!)
It’s always a treat when I can feature a Canadian brand. I was approached by Maison Jacynthe, a Quebec based company, to try out some of their cosmetics and I definitely jumped at the chance! I have three products to showcase/ review: an eyeshadow, blush and lipstick. I’ll be reviewing all three and also show how I managed to put all the products into a cohesive look.
One of the frenzied Black Friday purchases I made was from ColourPop. It’s been quite a while since I purchased from the brand just because the Canadian dollar has been so bad lately (my last ColourPop haul can be seen here). I wasn’t planning to make a purchase on Black Friday, but I got the sale email and couldn’t resist. The lip products were 20% off and I have been eyeing their metallic lips for some time. So…perfect excuse amirite?
Hello friends! I was recently stranded on a work trip in the north due to extreme weather conditions. While up there, one of the things I noticed first was how extremely dry and uncomfortable my skin was feeling. I actually got a nosebleed because it was just so dry there. It was a combination of the drying hotel soap and just the overall dry air. Long story short, winter is here and skin is dry.
Something I wish I had up on my trip was the Mary Kay “Satin” lines: Satin Hands and Satin Lips. If you’re like me and dry skin and lips aren’t your thing, these might be a great way banish it ’till summer!
As I get older, one thing that I look further into is skincare. When MyChelle, a new skincare brand to Canada (which is now being sold at Shoppers Drug Mart’s Beauty Boutique) reached out, I was excited to look into it. MyChelle sent me four different products to try and I’m happy to now share my thoughts! I’ve been using these products for some time, (2 or so months) and I think I’ve definitely been able to formulate an opinion on them.
