Dynamic Duo: Nyx Liquid Suede Lipsticks

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. Contrary to my initial belief, there was more strategic planning involved than I thought. The idea…

E.L.F Haul + Mini Reviews

Calling all my Canadian friends out there! Superstore expanded their E.L.F collection! 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…

New from Essence: Liquid Lipstick & Make Me Brow eyebrow mascara

  I love me some good drugstore products. Not only do they have a friendlier price tag, but there are some great hidden gems in there. Many drugstore brands actually own higher end brands – for example, L’Oreal owns Maybelline, Yves Saint Laurent, Garnier, Lancome, and much more.

Marc Jacobs Velvet Noir Major Volume Mascara

It was only after I completed my first couple blog posts did I realize that cosmetic and skin care brands make it their mission to create the longest names for their products. Not quite sure why, but I’ve resorted to using copy and paste in efforts to prevent my fingers from cramping up (ok, maybe I’ve exaggerated a bit).   This is my first Marc Jacobs product I’ve ever tried, and I think it’s fantastic – except for a little…
