August Favourites: Makeup & More!

August Favourites: Makeup & More!

The air has gotten noticeably chillier so it must be time to share my favourites from the month of August! It was another hot month so my favourites are quite short and sweet as I didn’t play with much makeup. However, the upside of the chilly air is that I have been wearing more makeup lately and therefor will have more to share with you this month! Let’s dive into the products that I had on repeat during the month of August! 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 Store Haul

Morphe Store Haul - beauty tools and makeup products

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!

xoxo,

Orabel Haul: Makeup Revolution & Morphe

Orabel Haul

I love a good mail day. Yesterday my Orabel order arrived which made it a great mail day. I’ve followed Orabel for quite awhile on Instagram but this was actually my first time ordering from them. Orabel is a Canadian online store that brings brands typically found on American and European websites to Canadians. My focus for this order was Makeup Revolution products but I also threw in a Morphe product to get myself over the free shipping threshold. Continue reading

Neglected Palette Makeup Look: Morphe 35O Palette

Morphe 35O

Another week, another neglected palette makeup look! This week I’m using the Morphe 35O Palette which was another one mentioned in my Five Neglected Eyeshadow Palettes post. When I see the Morphe 35O Palette I instantly think of a warm orangey makeup look, so since I have done that before many times, I thought I’d focus on the brown shades in the palette to switch things up a bit. Continue reading

Morphe x Jaclyn Hill Vault Collection: Bling Boss & Ring the Alarm

Morphe x Jaclyn Hill Vault Collection Ring the Alarm and Bling Boss

Well over a month ago the Morphe x Jaclyn Hill Vault Collection finally launched after a controversial delay due to quality control issues. I debated whether or not to jump on board when the collection finally did launch but, controversial or not, I enjoy Jaclyn’s videos and I enjoyed the selection of colours in the palettes. My blog had also just turned 3 so I decided to treat myself. Rather than talking about all four at the same time I thought I’d break them up a bit so today we are going to take a look at Bling Boss and Ring the Alarm. Keep reading for swatches and a makeup look from each palette! Continue reading

Five Neglected Eyeshadow Palettes

Neglected Eyeshadow Palettes

After an evening of cruising YouTube, a video by fellow Canadian Beauty Blogger and superb YouTuber, Chelle of Makeup Your Mind caught my eye. These days a unique video topic on YouTube is pretty far and few between but somehow she always manages to keep it fresh! The video that caught my eye this time was her 5 Neglected Palettes I’m Using This Autumn video. If you haven’t watched it, I highly recommend it. It really got me thinking about my neglected eyeshadow palettes and which ones I am going to make an effort of using more this fall.

Favourites: Summer 2018

Favourite Summer 2018 - Morphe, Bite Beauty, BareMinerals, Too Faced, Makeup Revolution

Wow I can’t believe how long it has been since I last wrote a blog post. I’ve missed you guys! How was your summer? I can’t believe how quickly that flew by as well. I had a super, super, super crazy busy summer so that was why I had to be so absent here. But, things are settling down (for now) so I am going to try to get back into the swing of things. With that said, I didn’t post monthly favourites for June, July or August! To be honest… I was living a very minimalistic makeup/haircare/skincare life so I don’t have many products to talk about but I didn’t want to skip this all together so let’s chat about the products that have been constants in my life over the past few months, shall we?

Morphe Haul

Morphe Haul

A few weeks ago I received an order that I had placed from Morphe! They recently (within the last few months?) opened up a Canadian website as they now have a warehouse here that they ship from. This was amazing news as Morphe’s shipping costs to Canada were generally pretty steep. On top of this they had a 20% sale for Canada Day so I just couldn’t pass up the opportunity to order a couple things I had my eye on. I just love their eye shadow and their brushes so much! The quality is fantastic and the prices are so affordable and even more so now that they ship from IN Canada. Wooo! Continue reading

April Favourites: Makeup, Skincare & More!

April Favourites

My April Favourites are a little bit later than usual this time around but I have a few products that I can’t get enough of. As usual, I also have a few interesting miscellaneous favourites as well! Is anyone else feeling completely reinvigorated by the sunshine and spring beauty out there? After what always feels like a winter that is way too long the sunshine is making me feel so inspired. I have so many colourful makeup looks on my mind that I want to start working on. Continue reading
