June July Favourites

Is it just me or is this summer going far too fast? I don’t mind fall, but I am absolutely dreading another snowy mess of a winter so I feel like I’m begging time to slow down! But with that said, I didn’t post June favourites so I thought I’d do a combination for June and July! I have some fantastic products to chat about that I’ve been using a lot the past two months so let’s dive in! Continue reading

Minneapolis Beauty Haul

Minneapolis Beauty Haul

Hello beauties! I’ve missed you! Between spending time at the lake, on my patio, or travelling, this summer has been a whirlwind so far! I have been absolutely loving it though. We have such long winters that I really do try to soak up every minute of summer that I possibly can. Anyways, with that said, I am back from another adventure so I thought I’d share my Minneapolis Beauty Haul with you! I mostly bought clothes so I managed to restrain myself by the time I got to the Mall of America (which has Ulta and Morphe stores in it), however I did pick up a few things!

Morphe | RC2 Brush Tubby Case

I’ve been wanting something to use when travelling with my brushes but wanted to see the various options that Morphe carries in person before buying. This cylindrical case can both be used on your vanity (with the lid snapped off) and on-the-go. I usually end up travelling with quite a few brushes so I think this will be perfect! I will likely be travelling again later on this summer (and for sure a few times this fall) so I’ll keep you guys posted! It was $15USD, less the 10% discount code you can get from various YouTubers.

Morphe | Continous Setting Mist

I have wanted this setting mist for SO LONG but the last time I was in Minneapolis Ulta was sold out and the Morphe store wasn’t open yet. I’ve just seen lots of positive reviews and the continous mist sounds so much better than a traditional setting spray. Also bonus… while I was walking around the store with this, a very helpful Morphe employee pointed out that they had a deal going on where you could get the spray, the eyeshadow primer and a makeup sponge for $20 USD, and the spray by itself was $16USD. So… I also purchased the Morphe Eyelid Primer (review and comparison to my beloved Urban Decay Eyeshadow primer potion will be posted after testing!) & the Morphe Highlight & Contour Beauty Sponge (have previously purchased and have enjoyed using this one!).

 Ulta Haul

Ulta Haul - Colourpop Concealer & Makeup Revolution Palette

Colourpop | No Filter Concealer in Fair 02

I was actually going to leave Ulta empty-handed (I bought a LOT of clothes at the Outlet Mall earlier that day) but then I saw the Colourpop stand and had to pick this up! I’ve wanted to try out their concealers for so long but was nervous finding my shade online. I can’t wait to try this out and compare to Tarte’s Shape Tape which has been my go-to for years.

Makeup Revolution | Forever Flawless Constellation Palette

Makeup Revolution Forever Flawless Constellation Palette

Since I already had the concealer in my hands, I decided on a whim to grab this palette since I was already committing to standing in the fairly long check-out line. I’ve been REALLY enjoying Makeup Revolution Palettes this year (Makeup Revolution Iconic Division Palette vs. Anastasia Beverly Hills Subculture PaletteMakeup Revolution Reloaded Neutrals 2 PaletteMakeup Revolution Warm Makeup Look) so I couldn’t resist picking up another! I love colourful palettes so I can’t wait to play with this! I’ve been wearing next-to-no-makeup all summer but this may make me start wearing more again just so I can play with it!

Have you purchased any any makeup lately? Let me know in the comments below!

Weekend Getaway Makeup Bag

weekend get away makeup bag contents

It has been a hot minute since my last blog post. When the warmer weather starts to come around I wear makeup less and less, and spend a great deal of time outside. However as I was packing for my next adventure I thought I’d share with you the contents of my weekend getaway makeup bag! The trip I’m about to embark on is a short one. I will be staying in a tent, however, I’m close to a town and wanted to pack some makeup for evenings out. So let’s take a look at what made the cut! Continue reading

4 Products I’ve Hit Pan On

Products I've Hit Pan On

While panning products isn’t something that gets me particularly excited, since Project Pan is the theme of the month for the Canadian Beauty Bloggers, I thought I’d share 4 products that I’ve hit pan on! I don’t think I’d ever do a full on project pan… but it is interesting to see the few products that I have hit pan on. I’d panned quite a few setting powders and I haven’t included those in this post because they aren’t nearly as exciting to talk about. Continue reading

Summer Staples: Effortless Beauty

Summer Staples: Effortless Beauty

In the summer I like to spend my free time on the go so I’ve been trying to keep my routine for what I have on my face as minimal as possible while still feeling confident. I mentioned in my previous favourites post that my skincare routine has left me happy with how my skin looks without foundation and concealer so this routine also skips that step! I have left my skincare routine out of this post but if you were curious I use the Drunk Elephant Protini Polypeptide Cream with the C Firma and B-Hydra Serums mixed in for daytime. 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
