Hello and welcome back for my Fall 2017 Favourites! I know it’s still November and Fall isn’t technically over until mid December, but in Alberta we joke that we have six months of winter and two months everything else. Fall ended the minute we got off the plane from Peru in shorts and capris and there was snow on the ground. BRRRRR!
Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Foundation
I reviewed this foundation here so I won’t go into a lot of detail, but Ultra HD works incredibly well for me. It’s light to medium coverage depending on how you blend it out and it never looks cakey on my skin. I also really like how my powder blushes and bronzers blend on top of it! Check my review for swatches and my foundation before & after.
Kylie Cosmetics Lip Kit in Dolce K
I reviewed this product here. This Matte lip kit has been my go to lip product for about two months now. I had to force myself to stop using it and switch up my look every once a while because I wore it so much! It’s long lasting, pigmented, and the perfect shade for Autumn.
I picked up my Sephora Birthday Gift in early November. The gift contained a Tarte Amazonian Blush in the shade Paaarty as well as a Tarte Creamy Matte Lip Paint in the shade Birthday Suit. The blush is beautiful to look at as well as to apply. It gives me a perfect wintery flush and is long lasting. The Tarte Lip Paint smells like peppermint to me and is more hydrating that I expected for a liquid lipstick.
I purchased the Sephora Favourites Beauty Sleep Set in October and fell in love with the Glam Glow DreamDuo samples included. Unfortunately the full size costs $69CAD. Now I remember why I don’t try things that are out of my budget, because I can’t stop thinking about buying them…
GlamGlow DreamDuo contains a serum and a moisturizing “sealer” to go on top. The serum is a pearlescent white cream that applies easily with no tugging and absorbs quickly. It smells amazing! The sealer is a boring grey colour but it smells just as good as the serum. It’s much thicker than the serum to I have to work it into the skin. My skin feels so hydrated when I use this combo!
Nail & Hair Care
This came in the 2017 Fall FabFitFun box and I cannot get enough of it. I’m normally not a fan of Lavender, but the scent is so subtle that I don’t mind. I feel like I’m getting a salon experience at home when I use this.
dpHUE ACV Rinse
I got highlights in my hair back in September and have been on a quest to preserve my hair colour ever since. I chose the dpHUE Apple Cider Vinegar rinse as my beauty boost option in the 2017 Fall FFF box and I’ve been using it weekly ever since (besides when I was in Peru). It’s colour safe and cleans my hair while conditioning it with essential oils. I’ve noticed that I can now go longer between shampoos since I started using it! I’ve been told that I can use regular apple cider vinegar and get the same results, so I’m going to put that to the test and compare the two.

Cat Quest for PC
Oh my gosh guys. If any of you are cat people AND gamers, this Steam game will be right up your alley. I told my husband about it and he stared at me like I was a lunatic, but then I told another girl at my work who loves cats about this and she immediately went and bought it! So I’m not crazy. This game is ADORABLE, and fun! You play as a cat who is ‘questin to save his sister from the Evil White Cat who abducted her. You get magic spells like Flamepurr and Healing Paw and quest around clearing out caves and helping town cats with their problems. It is SO cute, and the cat puns are AMEOWZING.
This War Of Mine
This game intrigued me. A board game version exists but I recommend playing the computer version first or else it will be hard to understand the board game. You play as a group of civilians in a fictional war torn city. Unlike most war games you aren’t trying to “kill the enemy”, instead you are trying to scavenge and basically survive through bomb shellings and raids. It’s day based and includes a daytime and a night portion. Do you guys play computer and/or console games?
