Alamar Cosmetics Reina Del Caribe Palette | Review + 3 Looks

Last week I received the Alamar Cosmetics Reina Del Caribe Palette in the June Boxycharm. Palettes like this one are exactly what I’m needing in the midst of this hot summer weather we’ve been having in Edmonton. In this review I talk pigment, fallout, blend, and swatches.

ABH Soft Glam Palette Review + 3 Looks

The ABH Soft Glam Palette retails for $55CAD and contains 14 x 0.02oz shades in a range of matte, metallic & iridescent shades. The value of ABH eyeshadow palettes aren’t great compared to other similarly priced brands at Sephora, the dollar value works out to $196.43 per ounce or $3.03CAD per pan. Though the value isn’t wonderful Anastasia Beverly Hills is known for their impeccable eyeshadow formula.

If you’re reading this the week I posted it I’m currently in Panama, hopefully lying on the beach with a cocktail in my hand.

One of the products I purchased was the Too Faced Natural Face Palette. There are so many different opinions surrounding the rebranded Natural collection. The eyeshadow palettes look pretty but contain…

Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel Sunscreen Review

Hey everyone, how are you doing? Hopefully the weather has started to turn around for all of you heading into Spring. Now that we’re seeing warmer temperatures it’s important to start thinking about sun protection while outside. In the winter I wear SPF on my face through my moisturizer or foundation but in the Spring & Summer I absolutely need an extra layer of sun protection.

Recreating my Wedding Makeup!

This past Thursday was our fourth wedding anniversary! Mike & I had dinner at a local restaurant called Normands, if you’re ever looking for a fancy restaurant in Edmonton I highly recommend it. They have a vegetarian dish with two different curried vegetables, mango chutney, and deep fried bananas and it’s to die for. Mike had a venison tenderloin with boar bacon, seasonal vegetables and saskatoon berry sauce. We aren’t…

Pür X Boxycharm Palette Review + 3 Looks

Hey everyone! You may remember seeing this Pür X Boxycharm palette in my Boxycharm unboxing last month. I was excited for it because of the vibrant magenta and shimmery blue shade in the bottom row. Unfortunately the formula didn’t hold up quite as I expected. I’ve seen some beautiful looks using this Pur X Boxycharm palette on instagram but after trying several times to make the formula work for me…
