Viseart palettes have some pretty amazing reviews in the beauty community, with the hefty price tag as virtually the only complaint. With the Petit Pro palette, Viseart scoops up those of us who were hesitant to spend $100CAD on a palette, seducing us with the siren’s song that is their buttery, long-wearing formula.
I love double cleansing. Nothing gets my skin quite as clean. I also love Caroline Hirons. I’ve read her blog for years and have absorbed and incorporated her love of acids into my life.
This year, she came out with a collab with Pixi Beauty, and even though it was tricky get my hands on, I knew I’d have to try it.
Every so often, a makeup product comes along that is so good that it activates a certain Pokémon instinct within me. That’s how I feel about the MAC Extra Dimension Blushes: gotta catch ’em all.
I ended a long-ish term relationship back in January and realized that I’ve never done the casual dating thing. I’ve been in a series of (almost) back-to-back relationships in my young adult life, and I didn’t date when I was a teenager because I lived in a small town and went to an all-girls school and was generally weird and awkward and shy.
I’m still weird and awkward and shy, but now I have the internet to help me out a bit. So here are a few things I’ve learned on my strange, frustrating, entertaining online dating adventure. And make no mistake, I’m writing these truths down as much to remind myself of them as I am to share them with you…
So here’s the thing – when it comes to eyeshadow, I don’t really do colour, as evidenced by my profound love of the likes of the ABH Modern Renaissance and Master Palette by Mario, Too Faced Sweet Peach, and other brown/bronze/beige-based palettes. But I want to dip my toes into the world beyond the bronze, so when I saw swatches of the Tarte Make Believe in Yourself Eye & Cheek Palette on Instagram (on dark skin, no less!), I thought I had to have it. I was so wrong.
I feel like a kid on Christmas Eve as I write this. Except makeup. Help me.
Unlike Christmas, the Sephora sale comes but twice a year for members of the Beauty Insider program. We super-addicted top tier members get an extra day of shopping before the sale starts for everyone else on April 19th. It runs for about a week, and you can take advantage of it in store or online. In this year’s spring sale, VIB Rouges and VIBs get 15% off, and Beauty Insiders get 10% off. (The fall sale usually features a deeper discount.)
Because I’m addicted to makeup, I’ve been prepping my basket for weeks now. Adding things. Removing things. Adding more things…and to make my decisions, I rely on my fellow bloggers’ recommendation posts and videos. At the very last minute, I thought I’d share my top picks for the sale.
I love DevaCurl. They make some of my favourite products, and they’re also responsible for my most recent (and favourite!) haircut. Naturally, I get excited about new products, especially the likes of which I’ve never seen before, and the DevaCurl Buildup Buster Micellar Water Cleansing Serum is the first micellar water for hair.
I hate lip gloss – or I thought I did. It’s too sticky, leaves my lips dry afterwards, and doesn’t pack enough punch in the pigment department to make it worthwhile. That’s what I thought, anyhow, until I discovered the Anastasia Beverly Hills Lip Glosses.
I love perfume. Maybe a little too much. Recently, I’ve been convincing myself not to buy any more full-size perfumes because I have too many. However, as the seasons change, I always find myself wanting to try a different scent.
Enter Scenteor, a Canadian-friendly fragrance subscription service. Although our neighbours south of the border have enjoyed fragrance subscriptions for years, prohibitive shipping costs or unavailable Canadian shipping altogether have prevented me from doing the same. What I love about Scenteor is that they ship to Canada – for free.
I think we all know how I feel about highlighters at this point. I love them. They’re my thing and I overdose on the glow on a daily basis.
The Anastasia Beverly Hills Glow Kit formula is one of my faves. Smooth, buttery, and metallic rather than glittery, I own Sundipped and half of That Glow, which I split with a friend. It’s worth noting that I skipped the six-pan holiday Ultimate Glow kit because it was incredibly glittery when I swatched it in store.
When I first saw the ABH Nicole Guerriero collab, I knew I had to have it.
