Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipstick

Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipstick

There’s nothing better than getting to try a product out without having to shell out money for a full sized product. Especially when that product is considered a luxury brand and therefore has a higher price tag. I’ve been intrigued by Charlotte Tilbury lipsticks for some time now, especially since Sephora started carrying them, but the price tag ($39 CAD) always made me put off the inevitable purchase. When I saw that the Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipstick was available in the Sephora Beauty Insider Rewards Bazaar I didn’t hesitate to use some of my points to try it out. The shade that was available as a deluxe sample was Pillow Talk which is a nude pink. For me I would consider this a MBB shade (my lips but better) which is great! Continue reading

Date Night Makeup Look with the Violet Voss Ride or Die Palette

Date Night Makeup Look Violet Voss Ride or Die Palette

Every year my husband and I spend Valentine’s Day having dinner at home (I always make something special for the occasion) and then go out either the night before or the night after. Last night we went out for dinner so I thought I’d share this date night makeup look with you today! For this look I used the Violet Voss Ride or Die Palette with a hint of the Urban Decay Vice 3 Palette. Even better is that these are both palettes that I vowed to use more this winter! So let’s take a closer look at my date night makeup look!

MOTD: Purple for Pancreatic Cancer

November is Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month and at work today I helped organize a fundraiser for this very important cause. After losing a friend to this illness last year I did some research and realize how truly terrifying this particular cancer is. Purple is the colour of Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month so we encouraged everyone to wear purple today so you know I had to have my makeup match!

Friday Feels: November 23, 2018

Friday Feels

Happy Friday! Who else is ready for the weekend? I was actually off work today but it still felt like a long week. I’m looking forward to catching up on some zzz’s this weekend.

Current Happenings

Since today is Black Friday I woke up early and did some light shopping with the husband today. I ended up scoring a Christmas tree at Michael’s. They had a pre-lit 7.5 foot tree as one of their door busters and my old tree needed replacing so we scooped that up! I also found some ornaments on sale! It was a great day out! I ended up decorating the tree when I got home and really got into the Christmas spirit! I’m usually pretty indifferent about Christmas but maybe being in the new house has changed how I feel about it. Continue reading

Palette Spotlight: Natasha Denona Eyeshadow Palette 5 – Colour 1

Natasha Denona Eyeshadow Palette 5 - Colour 1

It’s always so hard to choose which palette to swatch and chat about for Palette Spotlight but today I thought I’d grab the Natasha Denona Eyeshadow Palette 5 in Colour 1. I wish her smaller palettes had better names because it’s not fun to just simply say “Colour 1”. Oh well. I purchased this a few years ago during one of the VIB sales because I don’t think I would ever pay full price for one of her palettes. Their prices are absolutely insane. However, curiosity got the best of me and I had to try one.

Beauty Room Organization

Now that I’m all moved into my new house I have been tweaking the set up of my beauty room. I essentially had this set up in the old house but it was always a work in progress and there were some space limitations. While there’s still a few more things I want to add to this room (specifically, a small computer desk) I thought I’d show you guys how I have it organized so far! Continue reading
