Brand Collections: The Ordinary Skincare

the ordinary

I recently purchased some skincare from The Ordinary and I have been trying some items out. One of my goals for the year is to not only learn more about my skin, but also try and get into a better skincare routine. The thing that I find the hardest is being consistent with it. The Ordinary has been a hyped brand due to the rock bottom prices so it seemed like a good place to turn for to a routine. I thought I’d go through my thoughts on four items that I’ve been trying out.

Christmas is almost here and if you’re like me, you’re just finishing up your holiday shopping. If you’re looking into some inexpensive stocking stuffers or just need a small item to finish off your list, Hard Candy has you covered. I’ll show you some of the items I got sent from their holiday collection! I haven’t tried a lot of these (since I actually plan to give them away to friends and family as well), but hope they give you some ideas for your shopping list.

Brand Collection: Veil Cosmetics

Of course, I’m always down to try new brands, and I was recently introduced to Veil Cosmetics. Veil Cosmetics was created by Sebastien Tardif, a makeup artist who thought that makeup should enhance and not mask. Veil had a booth set up at IMATS this year and I actually met Sebastien himself. He was enthusiastic to share how his products are different from others on the market. I was sent some products to try as well so I thought I would give you the lowdown.

Brand Collection: Wet n Wild 2017 Collection Favs

wet n wild

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!

Too Faced Sweet Peach Collection

Too Faced Sweet Peach Collection

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 Skin Care: Bits and Bobs

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!)
