Hi guys! I normally don’t post until Wednesday but I was too excited and had to share this right away. Last week when the Becca x Jaclyn Hill Champagne Collection Eye Palette launched I jumped onto the Sephora website and grabbed one. The Face Palette was so amazing that I just couldn’t pass this up. So today will be another “first impressions” style post so I’ll have a look with this palette coming shortly as well. As I type this I have just received it in the mail so I haven’t had a chance to play with it yet but I just had to get some swatches up for you guys!

This palette is so stunning and looks like a great addition to my makeup collection. I’ve never used Becca eye shadows but I’ve heard great things! The colours are in the warm/neutral family and include two shimmers and three mattes. Basically, you have everything you need for a beautiful eye look. Continue reading

Hi guys! It’s time to go over my monthly favourites! I was going to film a video to go along with this however I have a cold so my voice sounds terrible. But, writing about these wonderful products lifts my spirits and makes me feel better!

Too Faced | Melted Matte Liquified Long Wear Lipstick in Lady Balls

I am obsessed with this liquid lipstick. It’s a beautiful true and is super long-wearing. You can find my rave review of it here! I can’t wait to pick up more shades from this line, the wear-time is unbelievable. And, who can resist a hilarious name like Lady Balls?

Kat Von D | Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Double Dare

I have definitely been having a liquid lipstick moment lately and this is another one that I have been wearing lots. It’s described as a cocoa blush shade and I think it is great for everyday wear. I’ll be reviewing it for one of my next Love for Lipstick post to wrap up my last haul. It has great wear time and feels like it goes with everything. Continue reading

Becca x Jaclyn Hill Champagne Collection Face Palette

Becca x Jaclyn Hill Champagne Collection Face Palette.jpgHi guys! On Tuesday Jaclyn Hill released a very limited amount the Champagne Collection Face Palette which is part of her upcoming collaboration with Becca Cosmetics. The full collection (as well as more Face Palettes) will be available when it launches on Sephora online on May 26th and then in-stores on June 16th (Sephora exclusive). I managed to snag one during the advance release so I thought I would share some swatches to help you decide if you need this or not!

Becca x Jaclyn Hill Champagne Collection Face Palette 2This palette features both highlighters and blushes (in both the new luminous formula and the mineral formula). The packaging is absolutely stunning, just as the products inside are as well. Continue reading

April Favourites

April Favourites ABH Glow Kit Gleam Becca Snapdragon.jpg

Hi guys! It’s time for one of my favourite types of posts to write which coincidentally is a “favourites” post! I love taking the time to reflect on the past month and figure out which items I was reaching for the most or truly stood out. I do normally prefer to do this kind of post with a YouTube video but time has just not permitted lately to do any filming, but I’m hoping to get back into the swing of that soon.

Anastasia Beverly Hills | Glow Kit in Gleam

I purchased this highlight kit during the Sephora Spring VIB Sale (you can find my haul post here). I was first impressed by the reviews it was getting online, but in addition I was also impressed by the excellent value this item is. You get FOUR generously sized highlights in this kit and they are all stunning. My swatches do not do this palette justice, it’s so hard to get a good photograph of a highlighter. I chose the Gleam Kit as it is pink based and looks perfect for fair skin. The other kit, That Glow, is more bronze toned so I don’t think it would suit me personally, but it has also gotten rave reviews online as well. Continue reading

MOTD: Warm Neutrals

P1020563.jpg

Hi guys! I’m back with another Makeup of the Day post! I noticed today that when I use my Urban Decay Naked Palette I usually use it more for very light, almost non-existent makeup. I will use a few of the darker shades to add depth to the outer-v of my eye but that’s about it. So, today I decided to venture into just the darker side of the palette and do a warm, darker look using this beautiful neutral palette. I also decided to add a few more products in the mix that I’ve acquired over the past month or so that I haven’t gotten around to testing yet.

All About That Glow: Spring Wishlist

Hi guys! I thought it would be fun to share with you some of the products I’ve been eying up lately, especially with the upcoming VIB sale at Sephora! I feel like most of my wish list seems to revolve around highlighting the face which I have no issue with at all. You’ll be surprised to see there isn’t a single eyeshadow palette on this list! Shocking considering I’m usually such a palette-junkie.

Let’s dive into what is currently on my Sephora wish list!

Highlighters

Urban Decay Afterglow 8-Hour Powder Highlight: Aura

This light pink highlight has had me hooked since I saw it start to appear online recently. I think it would compliment my fair skin so I know it needs to make its way into my online shopping cart ASAP. Also, I love the Afterglow blushes, they are my favourites, so I have high hopes for the highlighters!

MOTD: Warm Eye Look

Hi guys! Yesterday was Family Day in Canada so I decided to take the day off to spend the day with my husband and post today instead. If I had posted I was going to do a MOTD post, but I didn’t even end up wearing much makeup anyways.

I had purchased a red knitted tunic on Sunday which I was planning on wearing today since my husband and I have an event to go to tonight and it really made me want to play with warm eye shadow. I also think that now that my hair isn’t red anymore I feel this compulsive need to add more warmth to my look. Maybe this is because I’m so cool-toned? Who knows?
