Fall Must-Haves

Fall Must-Haves

Hi guys! Did you blink? I feel like I blinked because somehow summer is nearly over and the fall season is almost here. Although it’s quite chilly here already in Thunder Bay, I’m optimistic that we will still have a few more warm weekends. Although I do enjoy the fall season with it’s beautiful scenery, sweaters, warm drinks and darker colours, I do kind of hold what happens after against it. Anyways, though I’m dreading winter, I am looking forward to getting into the fall spirit and pulling out some darker makeup that I wasn’t as drawn to over the summer. This past summer I really embraced a nearly makeup free existence on the weekends that made it challenging to produce blog content.

So what am I most excited to put all over my face this fall? Let’s dive into it…

Urban Decay | Revolution Lipstick in Venom

Urban Decay Venom Lipstick

This lipstick can also be found in the new Vice range, however the one I have is from the Revolution era. It is a deep berry shade that for some reason just screams fall when I look at it. I love wearing it slightly blotted to give it a bit of an edgier vibe. Continue reading

Hi guys! I reviewed a few Maison Jacynthe makeup items a few weeks ago and today I’ve got a skincare item that they also sent to me for review. It is their lovely Eau Florale de Rose, or in English… Rose water! What drew me to this item is that I don’t really have any facial mists that I use and I enjoy trying out new things. So, let’s take a look at this Maison Jacynthe Eau Florale de Rose!

First off, I love the smell of this product. It truly smells like beautiful roses. Maison Jacynthe Eau Florale de Rose brings back wonderful memories of my childhood. We had a rose bush in my backyard and I loved to pick the pedals and put them in water to make my own “perfume”. When I spritz this on my face, I feel like I’m being transported back in time.

Maison Jacynthe Makeup Review

Maison Jacynthe

Hi guys! Maison Jacynthe was kind enough to send me some of their newly launched makeup items for review and after a few weeks of testing, I am ready to share my thoughts on them! They are a fairly new Canadian company, founded in 2014 by Jacynthe René who is an actress and a producer. Their makeup line launched on August 28, 2016 and is formulated with active and natural ingredients.

Maison Jacynthe: The Lipsticks

Maison Jacynthe Lipsticks

Being the matte lipstick lover that I am, I chose two of from this line to test. I’ve worn both of them extensively and have found the formula to be very consistent between the two shades. The formula is creamy and glides onto the lips when you apply it. There is no ‘dragging’ sensation that you may find with some matte lipsticks. Continue reading
