Pixi Pretties PR Haul

A few weekends ago I was coming home from a family brunch, and for whatever reason decided to park outside instead of going in through the garage. I was sure glad I did, because I had not one, not two, but THREE packages waiting for me outside my front door. I didn’t think that packages were delivered on weekends — Cue Uncle Vernon saying “no post on Sundays”. I guess…

Backpacker Beauty Routine | I’m In Thailand!

By the time you’re reading this blog post I’ll be in Thailand! I’m currently writing this blog post in anticipation of departing for Bangkok. I still can’t believe that I actually booked a solo vacation on a whim. It was one of my self growth goals that I set in my 30 before 30 list but saying is easier than doing sometimes. Now the thing is, I booked the trip fully…

My Everyday Face

In the beauty community it’s easy to get carried away. On instagram I tend to showcase looks that are elevated from everyday wear. The colourful cut creases and full makeup with lashes you see on instagram are a far cry from what I look like in real life. Now that I’m working full time I just don’t have the energy for a full face some days. I steal moments for…

Violet Voss Essentials Palette | 3 Looks & review

Have you ever been completely and entirely surprised by how good a makeup product is? That was my exact experience with the Violet Voss Essentials Palette. Prior to receiving it in my September Boxycharm I had heard mixed things about Violet Voss, so I was completely thrown by just how buttery & blendable the matte shadows are! Today I wanted to share my review of the Violet Voss Essentials palette,…

A Powder that feels like water!? Becca Hydra Mist Setting Powder Review

I first saw the Becca Cosmetics Hydra Mist Setting powder in an Allie Glines video on Youtube. I thought the title of the video was kind of gimmicky, but I was shocked to hear that this powder actually felt like putting water on your skin. The powder is formulated with 50% water & glycerin, and even though it appears to be very much a powder in the container everyone was saying that…

NYX Bare With Me Tinted Skin Veil Review

Hello beauties! We’re talking about the Nyx Bare With Me Tinted Skin Veil today. I’m so happy that I’m able to bring you some reviews of new base products. As most of you know I don’t really buy more base products than I need at any one time. I don’t want to be wasteful with my shopping and liquid products like foundations & concealers generally go bad for me before…

Covergirl TruBlend Undercover Concealer Review

  The day finally came where I finished not only my Tarte Aquacealer Concealer, but also my Maybelline Fit Me Concealer. I’ve been having a hard time convincing myself to shop at Sephora since they raised their prices so I decided to head over to Shoppers Drugmart and pick out a few new base products. I wound up choosing the Covergirl Trublend Undercover Concealer! I don’t think I’ve used a…

ColourPop Lip Crayon/Lippie Tint Review

Hey beauties!! After posting such a large ColourPop Haul recently is it really any surprise that I have a review today? I’ve been testing out a ton of new products and one of my favourites so far has been the ColourPop Lippie Tint lip crayons. These products were originally called “Lippie Tints”… now they’re just called Lip Crayons. I don’t know why ColourPop changed it but it’s certainly annoying to…

Sol Body, Fourth Ray Beauty & ColourPop Haul

Hello everyone! It feels like so long since I shared a haul on my blog. It actually hasn’t been that long in reality though, my What’s New In My Makeup Bag was essentially a haul roundup of everything I purchased prior to June. But today I’m sharing a haul from ColourPop and her two sister brands. Fourth Ray beauty is getting just as bad as ColourPop in terms of constant…
