Review: L’Oreal Pure Clay Mask – Comforting and Unifying

I usually buy the cheap “3 for $5” masks from my drugstore, and they’re fine and fun. But I wanted to look into nicer masks that I can use a couple times a week and really see the benefits. I keep seeing commercials and advertisements for the new L’Oreal masks and finally purchased one (about…

NYX Total Control Foundation | Review

I posted a mini haul earlier and this foundation was on my must try list. I wasn’t sure if I would love it because it’s consistency is quite liquified but I thought I’d give it a try. It states that it is buildable coverage and one can build this up based off of how many…

Mini Beauty Haul

Ok ok I know I just posted I was saving money, but I went to my local drugstore and got too excited for these products and went ahead and purchased them. I only got 3 items but I’m still very happy.   On the left is the Smashbox Cover Shot: Softlight Palette ($35 CAD), and…

Throwback Favourite

I recently repurchased an old favourite, my Rimmel London Wake Me Up Foundation (seriously only $11 CAD). Its super light weight yet manages to cover anything I need it too, all while making me look so refreshed. It is very affordable as foundations go and is convenient to pick up most places. It also has…

Out the Door in 3 Minutes

Sometimes we wake up late and sometimes we just seem to run out of time but we need go-to’s to feel put together in a hurry. I have broken it down to a 3 minute routine with only 3 products. It is my essentials – mascara, concealer, lipstick – that’s it. I used the Clinique…

Review: Revlon Bold Lacquer Mascara

Back to the good, reliable drugstore mascaras. I do love the high end ideas, but for me mascara is mascara – I struggle to spend over $20 on it. I picked this little beauty up at Winners for about $7 CAD. I like my lashes to be dark, thick and long. This does it for…

Simple Fall Look

Red lip? Check. Winged liner? Check. Warm eyeshadows, and a glow? Check and Check. This is my simple fall look, still slightly sun-kissed but ready for the fall season. First I wash my face, and prep with my Neutrogena Moisturizer that’s oil free. Then for the eyes I use small pieces of tape to define…

No-makeup, makeup in Under 5 Minutes

For those lazy days, or off days where you need to look somewhat put together – no makeup makeup is perfect. I use about 3 sometimes 4 products. BB cream, mascara, eyeshadow (basic) and sometimes powder. That’s it. If I were to put a price on it it would be around $40 for the entire…

Nude or Nothing?

I prefer natural eyeshadow bases and mixes. I recently picked up the Maybelline The Nudes Eye Shadow Palette and it’s not bad. It only retails for around $12 CAD which for a palette is a steal. However, the pigmentation needs a lot of build up; but for $12 we can afford a little more product…
