Tarte’s Tartelette Toasted Palette has been one that I’ve been meaning to review for quite some time now. Since I purchased it in early December it has been a pretty regular staple in my daily makeup routine. However, since I usually wear it on work days and I like my sleep I don’t usually leave myself enough time to photograph my makeup looks. But now that the snow is nearly all melted and I haven’t had to brush off my car in the morning in awhile I finally have found some time! I better not be jinxing the snow situation. I won’t accept anything other than spring being here to stay. But with all that said, let’s take a look at Tarte’s Tartelette Toasted Palette! Continue reading
I usually talk about how ‘fast’ a month goes by but was it just me or did January seem particularly long this year? It could have been due to the major cold snap we had for the last couple of weeks at the month that really made it feel long. If I don’t have to see -40 with the windchill on the weather network again for the rest of the winter I’ll be a happy girl! January however was a great month – it was a month of setting goals and working on achieving them. Though I didn’t get as much blogging done as I would have liked to, I did spend the month working on some other goals of mine. Continue reading
I always find end of year favourites to be such a challenge. With so many products to choose from it’s hard to come up with a concise list that doesn’t miss anything. In keeping with how I did my best of 2016 post, I’m going to stick to what I considered to be game changers. These are products that I tried for the first time this year and loved enough to consider them “game changing”. Continue reading
Hi guys! Although it isn’t quite the end of September, I can assure you that I am done hauling for the month. So, I thought I’d collectively share in one place what I purchased this month! I’m planning on posting reviews, swatches, makeup looks and so on using these products so stay tuned!
L to R: Haze and Haze II
The first purchase I made this month was the Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick Haze Duo which was a flash sale/launch for 48 hours earlier this month. The shades were super unique to my collection and I looooove the Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick formula so I couldn’t pass them up. I posted a makeup look using Haze II just a couple days ago!
Hi guys! Tarte Shape Tape Contour Concealer is probably a product you’ve heard about time and time again. That Ulta exclusive that is a bit of a pain for the rest of the world to get their hands on (unless you want to pay an arm and a leg for shipping and exchange like I did). After a couple of months of using solely this concealer, I’m ready to put in my two cents on this popular product.
The first thing I noticed about Tarte Shape Tape is how big the tube and wand are. At first I wondered if it was bulky packaging but the amount of product you get is quite impressive (and took away some my shipping & exchange rate bitterness). Compared to my usual go-to, Urban Decay Naked Skin Concealer which contains 5 ml of product, you get 10 ml with Tarte Shape Tape! Definitely makes this more of a worthwhile investment.

Hi guys! It’s been awhile since I’ve done a Love for Lipstick post so today I’ve got one featuring the Tarteist Creamy Matte Lip Paint in Adorbs! I picked this beauty up last month during the Sephora Spring VIB Sale and I’ve been testing it out ever since. I really love testing out new liquid lipsticks as I’m always on a quest to find the best wear times. I chose the shade Adorbs as it’s so bright and looks so summery. Plus, I didn’t already have any bright liquid lipsticks, bonus!
The formula of Tarteist Creamy Matte Lip Paint is a slightly thicker than I’m used to mousse-y formula. Application is really quite easy. Between the consistency of the formula, and the shape of the wand, I could easily get a nice clean, even application on the lips. The wand is a bit longer and less doe-footy than your typical liquid lipstick applicator. I thought this would make it harder to apply but this actually made it easier to get a precise application!

Hi guys! As many of you know, the Sephora Spring VIB Sale took place about a week ago! I was waiting for my last order to come in to post this, but the ice storm we had here in Thunder Bay this week delayed Canada Post. So when my package arrived today, on a Saturday, I was so excited I couldn’t wait to take pictures and get this post up. I posted my wish list a couple of weeks ago and although I never really stick to it, I did pick up two of the items on it! Generally my list is kind of a starting point but I always end up straying when it comes time to placing an actual Sephora order.
There is quite a trend of liquid lipsticks in this haul, but as you probably know, that’s essentially my favourite formula to wear. Continue reading
Hi guys! I thought it would be fun to break out my Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette and do a look slightly different than I normally would do with it (usually I just want to slap Bootycall all over my lid… perfection!). I also thought it would be fun to finally try out some samples I got in recent Ipsy bags that I haven’t got the chance to use yet.
So let’s just get into it!
