Review: Essence Colour Correcting Sticks

essence colour correcting stick

Hello folks! I know colour correcting is a bit of a ‘been there, done that’, but there is a launch from Essence that I think is worth looking at. I’ve tried a couple of colour correctors here are there and they’ve always been pretty good. The only issue is that for something I don’t use all the time, I don’t want to spend a huge amount of money on it. I think the Essence Colour Correcting Sticks have that point covered!

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!

Drugstore Delights: Revlon Lip Butters


I’m sure some of you reading are thinking…another blogger raving about lip butters. You pretty much got that right.

Chelsea from Olive and Ivy let us know on the CBB Facebook group that Shoppers Drug Mart had some Revlon lip products on sale for 3.99 CAD (compared to around $10 CAD normally). I also recently got an email from Shoppers Drug Mart letting me know it was 20x the Optimum points for $25 purchases and over. I actually have never seen a 20x the points for anything less than a $50 purchase so I thought I would trek out to Shoppers.

I bought one lip butter to add to the other 3 that I have. Here are the swatchs of my mini collection.

  Juicy Papya – Tutti Frutti – Peach Parfait – Wild Watermelon

For those that haven’t tried them, I highly recommend them. They do not dry out your lips and add the perfect hint of colour. I would say for those that aren’t interested in a super pigmented lipstick these are a great option.

Regular price they are definitely a bit more pricey than some other drugstore products (is it me, or is the drugstore starting to look more expensive every year…) but they I would say worth it. They have a great colour selection so you should be able to find one that fits your fancy!

I believe the sale at Shoppers Drug Mart is still on for a couple days (until May 22nd, 2015) so if you want to grab a couple this is the time to do it!

Thanks for reading! Hope you have a wonderful day!

Drugstore Delights: Wet n Wild Mega Last Lip Colour- Swatches + Review

While I was at Wal-Mart with a friend recently, she recommended I try out these Wet n Wild lipsticks. I was hesitant, but the price was VERY appealing at around $3, so I thought I would try some out.


Amazing matte lipsticks with a price that can’t be beat.


Each one cost around $3 CAD at Wal-mart

Would I Buy Again?

YES! I’m going to be looking for more colours to add to my collection.

Rambling Review

I cannot rave about these lipsticks enough. I should have been tipped off by the practically empty display and the recommendation from my friend, but I had to try to believe it. And boy, now I believe!

I purchased 3 colours:

910D – Red Velvet


905D – Smokin’ Hot Pink

904B – Rose-bud
The colour I’ve been wearing the most has been Rose-bud. The lipsticks go on matte with HUGE pigmentation. That’s the thing that surprised me the most. This is definitely not a glossy balm and shows up true to colour. 
Here are some swatches:
These swatches were done with one swipe, which I can’t believe. Some things I did note were that they were a bit drying, but nothing more than other matte lip products I’ve tried. Actually I would say these were less drying than others! Another thing I noticed was that after wearing for an entire day, they started to bleed a bit. Nothing that a touch up couldn’t fix, but I might have to invest in a lip pencil.
Anyways, I can’t rave about these enough and hope to get some more soon! 

Thanks for reading!
