• 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…

  • April Beauty Favourites

    To counteract all the negativity in my last post, I thought I should do a favourites post! I love rummaging through my makeup drawers and looking at all the products I’ve used this month. All of these, actually, were no brainers. I love favourites posts so let’s get on with talking about my favourite beauty products from the month of April.  My journey to find the perfect face primer has been a tough one. I’ve tried so many that I don’t find do anything for my skin. But, the Huda Beauty Complexion Perfection Base Primer is my favourite one that I’ve tried. It makes my foundation glide on like butter and…

  • Disappointing Products

    Do I love doing these posts? Yes and no. No, I don’t love hating on products which a company has worked hard to create but at the same time, I don’t love every single product I try. I try not to talk about bad products on my blog but sometimes I need to round up the ones that really disappointed me. This can either be because of the formula, the shade, it didn’t work for my skin, or other reasons.  So, today I’ll be talking about a few products that disappointed me.  First up might be a bit of a shock. I’m like most people in the fact that I…

  • Wet N Wild Colour Eyecon Eyeshadow Quad

    If you have ever been doubtful of Wet N Wild products because the packaging isn’t that nice and they are the cheapest brand at the drugstore, you need to reevaluate your life. I have never tried a Wet N Wild product I don’t like. Even though they are a very inexpensive brand, their products are exceptional.  They recently reformulated and relaunched their Color Eyecon Eyeshadows. I have their original Comfort Zone Palette and love it. The used to only have trios and 8 pan palettes but they now only have quads and 10 pan palettes. When they came out with all of these new quads I wanted to try them…

  • Ulta Beauty Brand | REVIEW

    As some of you may know, I went to Miami in February and went to Ulta a couple (3 times in 3 days) times and went a little HAM. I had never tried anything from the Ulta brand and was super excited that the brand was Buy 3, Get 2 free. I think I got a good variety of products without going completely overboard.  So, today I’ll be talking all about some of the Ulta Beauty products I picked up.  I picked up a couple face products, a couple lip products, and an eye product to try.  Let’s start off with the face products! I first wanted to try the…

  • Beauty Empties March 2018

    Ever wanted to see what’s in my garbage? No? Well, you’re about to. I go through product all the time and I think it’s fun to see what products beauty junkies actually use up completely. You get a really good idea of the product when you use the whole darn thing. I mostly use up skincare and body care stuff but I do finish the occasional makeup item.  If you’re interested to know what beauty products I’ve used up recently and what I think of them, keep on reading! The Good: The Simple Micellar Water is my favourite cleansing water. It also helps that it’s like $8 at the drugstore.…

  • Physician’s Formula The Healthy Foundation REVIEW

    I feel like so many brands have brought out new foundations lately. Is that just me? At the drugstore and at Sephora, so many amazing brands are coming out with new and amazing foundations. Foundations might be one of my favourite thing to test out.  Also, anything with the word “healthy” in the title, I’m all about.
