• GLAMGLOW Glow Palette

    A highlight palette with skincare benefits? Uhh yes please. I was casually browsing the Sephora website, as I do daily, and came across this highlight palette and couldn’t resist. I can’t say no to a good highlight as it is but when you add in other benefits, I throwing my credit card down and paying for express shipping.  Today I’ll be doing a quick review on the Glamglow Hyaluronic Acid Infused Glow Palette.  This palette contains 3 highlight powders; pearl glow, nude glow, and sun glow. All of the powders are infused with hyaluronic acid, Brazilian golden clay, golden gemstones, and a vital flower complex. I’m not comepletely sure what…

  • June Beauty Favourites

    Finally summer is upon us in Halifax. We’ve had a good week of nice ish weather and I feel like summer is finally here. So, I’ve busted out all of my coral makeup items and I’ve been loving it. I don’t feel like its summer yet until I wear coral on my eyes, my cheeks, and my lips. Is that crazy of me?  So today I’ll be talking about a couple beauty products I have been loving this past month! I love a good face mist and what it adds to my skincare routine.

  • Water Face Powder? Ft. Becca Cosmetics

    Have you ever wanted to put on face powder and it be made of 50% water? Becca Cosmetics Hydra-Mist Set & Refresh Powder has just answered all of your dreams. As a person with dry skin, I always dread putting face powder on because I know it has to set my foundation but it can also make me look super dry. If I apply to much it makes my face look cakey. If I don’t apply enough, my cheek products don’t blend out well enough.  When this super interesting product came out and I started to see reviews, I knew I had to try it.  The Becca Hydra-Mist Set &…

  • My Makeup Storage

    As someone who has a decent amount of makeup, I love my makeup storage. I don’t have a huge apartment so my makeup storage doesn’t take up much room which is perfect. It also looks really nice and tidy. Is what I have right now going to be my forever solution? Probably not. But, it works for me right now and I’m hoping it will give you some ideas.  If you want to know about my makeup storage and where I got everything, read on! My makeup lives in the corner of my bedroom. My dresser is the perfect height for me to stand at with my vanity mirror and…

  • Makeup Revolution Conceal and Define Concealer

    This concealer has been the talk of the beauty town for a while now. That is for one major reason: it is said to be a dupe for the Tarte Shape Tape Concealer. If you don’t know what that is, you have been living under a massive rock. Tarte Shape Tape is the best concealer known to mankind. If there is a concealer that is less expensive and just as good, you better believe I’m gonna pick that bad boy out and put it to the test.  This concealer is by an up and coming brand called Makeup Revolution. As far as I know, it’s only available at Ulta. Great…

  • Maybelline Lemonade Craze Eyeshadow Palette

    There are three makeup products I am always the most excited to buy and try out. My biggest is foundation. My second favourite is eyeshadow palettes and my third is concealer. I also love trying out anything drugstore. If I can find something amazing at an affordable cost, it’s like winning the lottery for me. So, when I saw the ads start to come out for the Maybelline Lemonade Craze Eyeshadow Palette, I got super excited. The colours are gorgeous and Mayeblline’s eyeshadows are usually really good! This eyeshadow palette is really interesting. It’s not your typical neutral eyeshadow palette. It does have some neutrals but also has some really…

  • Naturally Well Co | Review

    As a beauty blogger I have begun to reach out to brands to see if they would like to collaborate for a review. When it’s a local, Canadian brand it’s even better. I recently reached out to a brand called Natural Well Co (or cynthia_aesthetics on insta) because they looked like they had amazing bath and body products. This is an Etsy shop and can be found here.  The owner of the company was super sweet and we exchanged a few instagram DM’s before she sent me some products. She wanted to make sure I received exactly what I wanted in the scents I wanted. She would respond to my…

  • Brush or Sponge for Foundation?

    For as long as I have been into makeup I have gone back and forth on the best way to apply my foundation. For the first few years I only used a brush for my foundation. Then, for the last few years I have been strictly a sponge girl. I had never put them head to head before now! I decided to do half of my face with a brush and the other half with a sponge. I made sure to use a brush I know I like and a sponge I know I like.  I also decided to use a bit of an oldie but a goodie foundation. For…
