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.
Something I’ve been into lately is foundations. I feel like I’ve been accumulating a lot of them, and genuinely enjoying trying all of them out. Today I wanted to pit an old favourite against a newcomer. The Make Up For Ever Ultra HD (and prior HD foundation) has had a fantastic place in my foundation lineup. I’ve actually done a Versus post on the Ultra HD and old HD formula here. At IMATS, I ended up picking the Inglot HD Perfect Coverup foundation. I mostly bought this cause I’m getting low on the MUFE Ultra HD. The claims are similar though, so I thought I might as well see how they fair against each other!

Hello folks! Today I have an exciting post thanks to Nail Polish Canada! Halloween is fast approaching, and that means fun makeup and nails! I enjoy doing my nails, but I’m no expert. Nail Polish Canada provided me with a set of Graveyard stencils to try out and I also have a code that gets you a set for FREE!
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!
I haven’t done my nails in forever and the long weekend was a great excuse to give my nails a little TLC. I was sent some of the Essie Gel Couture polishes to review and wanted to really test the claims of longwear gel without a lamp. I find a lot of brands are pumping out these types of products, but Essie being one of my holy grail brands, I had high expectations.
If you know me, you’ll know that I’m a huge fan of cute. Cute anything really. Puppies? Sure. Babies? Why not? Makeup packaging? Now we’re getting crazy. Zoella Beauty, the line created by Zoe Sugg of YouTube super stardom, introduced a new collection called Jelly and Gelato. We are talking out of this world adorableness with the colouring, the packages, and the products themselves. You can definitely see the ‘jelly and gelato’ influences all over the place. I have three items from the collection to showcase for you guys so we’ll get right into it.
Hi friends! I’ve been trying a lot of skincare, I know, but this was a line that I was really looking forward to digging into. Dr. Belmeur is a relatively new line to THEFACESHOP. Dr. Belmeur has products for different skin types with their Daily Repair (dry) and Clarifying (combo-oily). I have three items from the Clarifying line today that I’ve been trying out. I also have a giveaway for you to win the exact set of products featured!
Hi friends! Another post coming at you and it’s about the Mary Kay Fall 2017 collection. When this arrived at my doorstep I was instantly in love with the mauves, deep purples and blues. I’ve had a chance to play around with some of the bits and pieces for a bit and I can definitely say I’m smitten!
Hi friends! A bit of a different post today. Recently my friend and her family took a trip to Ireland and they came across a cute shop while there called The Burren Perfumery. They brought me back some goodies to try and I thought I would share those along with a bit about the store itself.
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.
