One of the most surprising presents I received this holiday season was from my friend and fellow beauty lover Leah. She’s gotten on that Huda Beauty train, but I haven’t looked too much into her products. Of course I’ve heard the hype, and her lip kits, palettes, and foundation look to be getting rave reviews. The Huda Beauty Desert Dusk palette is a beauty collection of golds, oranges, purples and red. I was so excited to start playing around with it!
Continuing on with my Wet n Wild posts, I have a First Impressions on some new liquid highlighters, their Mega Glo Hello Halo Liquid Highlighters. I LOVE their Mega Glo Highlighting Powders and definitely think they rival high end highlighters like Becca! I had ‘high’ hopes for these, so lets see how they swatch!
Hi folks! Wet n Wild is one of my favourite drugstore brands. I find that the quality and innovations are just impeccable for the price. I recently went to a 2018 launch event and I got lots of products to try out (so you’ll be seeing a few Wet N Wild posts in the near future)! Some items I got are the Mega Cushion Colour Correctors, Contour, and Highlight.
Since I had to order my Sephora Beauty Insider birthday gift, I thought I would make the shop worth my while by also picking up a palette I was eyeing, the Anastasia Beverly Hills Prism palette. I know people might be a bit gun shy after the whole Subculture debacle, but I was never interested in the Subculture palette in the first place. The Prism palette in comparison really caught my eye and I decided to go for it.
Hi folks! Today I have some initial thoughts and swatches of the two lipsticks from the MAC x Nicki Minaj collection that she designed herself. This collections also includes 18 nude lipsticks and 6 nude lipglasses but these are from the permanent MAC collection.
Hi folks! I have a quick first impression of the new Kat Von D Glimmer Veils which were recently released online at Sephora. These puppies aren’t in store yet and will be released at Sephora on September 8. At IMATS last weekend (recap and haul can be found here), I managed to get my hands on two of the colours Rocker (described as a copper with gold glimmer) and Razzle (magenta with pink glitter).
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!
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.
I recently had the privilege to attend a launch event at Inglot. If you’ve never heard of the brand you need to fix that ASAP. I discovered them in 2015 when they first opened up a store in Toronto. I wrote up a blog post at the time (apologies for the shoddy pictures) based on some of their eyeshadows! Definite loves!
The launch event was for their new Aquastic line of creme eyeshadows. I have minimal experience with creme eyeshadows, but I’m in LOVE with metallics so I was excited to check them out!
Hello friends! As some of you may know, I’ve been travelling up north for work. During the summer it wasn’t so bad, but during the winter?! Eek. Cold and snowy are an understatement. Even as we (somewhat) move into spring, they keep the hotel so DRY. Dry to the point I actually got a nosebleed and my skin was cracking. I recently received some samples from green beauty brands, and it couldn’t have come at a better time. Most products are moisturizing-focused, so I was able to let out sigh of relief! I have definitely tested these under some harsh conditions and wanted to share!
