NYX Haul + Mini Reviews

When a friend told me a makeup store called NYX opened up in a mall near me, I didn’t believe him (also didn’t help that we were camping, in the middle of nowhere, with no hopes of visiting the mall before the weekend was over). Nevertheless, when I got back home, I made it my mission to go to the NYX store. I picked up fewer products than I expected, but I’m happy I didn’t need to buy these items…

Maybelline Colour Jolt Intense Lip Paint Review

I regrammed a photo of the Maybelline Colour Jolt Intense Lip Paints (C$9.96) months before they were released because I was so excited for them. After reading Maybelline’s description of them, I expected them to be lip pigments that offered opaque, long-lasting coverage – the Cover Fx Custom cover drops of all lip products.

August 2016 Makeup Empties

Maybelline Age Rewind Concealer in Light At first I wasn’t overly impressed with this concealer. When I purchased it, everyone I was following on Youtube were singing praises on this little guy. However, soon enough I followed suit. Even though this concealer feels extremely lightweight on the skin, it packs quite a punch with a solid medium coverage. I wouldn’t recommend this over severe blemishes, but it does tackle the undereyes quite well. I’ve heard great things about the neutralizer…

Duped? Kat Von D Shade + Light Palette vs. E.L.F Contour Palette

Contour and highlighting seem to be all the rave right now in the makeup community, and I’d be lying if I said that it hasn’t affected me at all. I purchased the Kat Von D Shade + Light Contour Palette a few months ago and I have been using it non-stop every day ever since. If you saw my E.L.F Haul, you’ll know that I was so excited to see the expanded E.L.F collection in my local grocery store. I…

My Experience hiding dark circles: The lipstick trick

  I stumbled upon a Pinterest post one day that mainly contained a before and after picture of a girl’s bad case of dark circles miraculously disappearing after smearing lipstick under her eyes. I was pretty shocked to say the least, and thought to myself, “is it really that easy?”. So I decided to try it out for myself – here are the results.

The extended collection may also come to other grocery stores like Loblaws, but so far I’ve just seen it in Superstore. To say that I was excited would be an understatement. I was bouncing up and down, and sitting on the floor in front of the display just to get a good look at the new products they had to offer. While my boyfriend was rolling his eyes…
