As I make my way through the Essence Fall/ Winter 2017 launches I was sent, I keep finding gems. The Water Kiss Glossy Lip Colours definitely surprised me! I’m usually not a glossy lip person, and didn’t expect much pigmentation at all. These little guys pack a punch though!
It’s hard to believe that we’re in December now. You know what that means right? Gift guides from bloggers galore! I’m gonna start off the month with some great stocking stuffers from the Farleyco brands that I was sent to review. Maybe you can get some ideas if you’re filling a stocking for a beauty aficionado!
Lipsticks are one of my vices. I feel like I have tons in my collection and it doesn’t seem to be shrinking anytime soon! When I was sent the new Mary Kay Gel Semi-Shine Lipsticks to try out, I was excited! I was able to get pretty good results from their Semi-Matte lipsticks (review can be found here), so I had high hopes!

I can’t believe another year has passed in my blog journey! It honestly does feel like yesterday since I first decided to start this blog. I would say this year has included a lot of change in my blogging and a renewed focus. I love doing these posts just to refresh with myself my goals for blogging and how I’m progressing with those goals! I also have a pretty awesome giveaway for 3 lucky readers so please read on!
I know, I know. I’m a bit behind the times. I usually am in general, just in life, but nothing more so than mentioning The Ordinary. If you enjoy beauty / reading blogs / watching beauty videos / don’t live under a rock, you’ve probably heard of the brand. I decided to wander into one of their freestanding stores and check it out. Of course I came out with some items and I thought I would share.
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!
A palette that has taken the makeup world by absolute storm is the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance palette. When I first got it, I was a bit hesitant, but after owning it for awhile now, I’m SO glad I made the purchase. It’s one of my most used palettes!
At the Wet n Wild 2018 product launch event, they were showcasing the repackaged and reformulated Color Icon eyeshadow palettes. One of the 10 pan palettes, Rose in the Air, looks SCARILY similar to Modern Renaissance. I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to do a versus post on them.
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.
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.
It’s rare that I do outfit or fashion posts just because I wouldn’t really consider myself a very stylish person. I can say that I definitely do try but I wouldn’t say I have that ‘eye’ to pick out pieces that look good. In comes ChickAdvisor with their latest campaign with Simons. I don’t think there was a campaign that I wanted more than this one. We were given a $100 credit and had the task to pick out at least 2 items from a set of pre-determined items. Lets just say that I loved many more than 2 of the items and decided to buy a bunch. I have a couple of ways I styled the pieces which was super fun!
