Sephora VIB Fall Sale Haul 2019

Sephora VIB Fall Sale Haul 2019

It’s that time of the year again, the annual Sephora VIB sale for the fall season has nearly come and gone. I initially wasn’t planning on picking up much but this sale always falls around my birthday so between treating myself and a few gift cards I ended up with three hauls this go around. I didn’t make a wish list this time around but I’m quite happy with the products I chose, even if my husband was stuck browsing at Sephora longer than he would have liked, haha! Continue reading

Collective Haul: August 2019

August Collective Haul

It’s been awhile since I’ve done a collective haul post so I thought I’d share with you all the products I purchased during the month of August since the month is nearly over. Where did July and August go? I feel like I say this every summer but they just disappear so fast! However, rather than talking about how I already miss those sweet summer months let’s chat about the products I purchased this month! Continue reading

Makeup Revolution Iconic Division Palette vs. Anastasia Beverly Hills Subculture Palette

ABH Subculture MR Iconic Division

The moment I saw the Makeup Revolution Iconic Division Palette I knew that I had to test it against the Anastasia Beverly Hills Subculture Palette. How could I not? The shade selection is identical. The Subculture Palette gets a lot of flack online but I never minded it that much. While many returned it, I kept mine. It is a bit more difficult to work with but I enjoyed the range of shades it contained and found ways to work with them. Today I thought I’d share a look using both palettes. I’ve used the same shades in each but have kept each eye to one specific palette. Let’s take a look how they compare in the context of this look!

3 Everyday Lippies

3 everyday lippies

I’ve been noticing a pattern with the lipsticks I’ve been wearing a lot lately. They are all fairly neutral and go with a variety of looks. I wear them with colourful looks and I wear them with more natural looking makeup looks. With all this said, I thought I’d share with you my current three everyday lippies. Continue reading

MOTD: Day to Night Makeup Look

MOTD Day to Night Makeup Look

Normally if I know I have to be out somewhere in the evening on a weekend I refrain from wearing makeup during the day out of sheer laziness to avoid doing my makeup twice. However, I went out this morning so I wanted to wear a little something-something on my face. In keeping with my not wanting to do my makeup twice motive I decided it would be a great opportunity to take a daytime look and transition it into an evening look! I really didn’t do that much to transition the look but I’m quite pleased with how it turned out! Continue reading

Coral Makeup Look: Pantone Colour of the Year 2019

Coral Makeup Look Pantone Colour of the Year 2019

March is almost over and before it ends I knew I had to share a coral makeup look with you guys! Coral is not only Pantone’s Colour of the Year for 2019 but it is also the Canadian Beauty Bloggers Theme of the Month (see the linked posts at the end of this post for more coral posts!). A lot of the coral products featured in this post were mentioned in my Coral Round-Up earlier in the month. So let’s see them in action, shall we? Continue reading

Five Neglected Palettes: Winter Edition

Neglected Palettes Winter

I had a lot of fun posting about my five neglected palettes that I was going to use more during the fall. That post was inspired by Chelle of Makeup Your Mind and her YouTube Video on the subject. I ended up doing a few makeup looks for the blog using my fall selections so I thought I’d pick five new ones to focus on for winter. I by no means exclusively used these palettes during the fall but  I did make a point to reach for them more often. So let’s take a look at what I’m going to make a better effort to use this winter! It’s a perfect time to revisit old favourites that have become neglected as this month’s theme for the Canadian Beauty Bloggers is Shop Your Stash! Continue reading

Collective Haul: December 2018

Collective Haul December 2018

Happy New Year everyone! Though I plan on sharing both my NYE makeup look and my 2018 favourites, I thought I’d first start off the year by posting my collective haul from December. I actually bought quite a bit of makeup from Sephora last month between the $25 off purchases of $75+ coupon code earlier in the month and then gift cards I received for Christmas. So let’s take a look at what I picked up last month. Continue reading

Neglected Palette Makeup Look: Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance

In September I posted about some makeup palettes that were getting some serious neglect that I was going to make a point of using more this fall. My plan was to follow that up with a makeup look using each palette so this month I am going to work on doing just that! Today I’m featuring the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette. I typically do a warm and orangey or a pink makeup look using this palette so this time I decided to do something a bit different. Continue reading
