Ready In Under 5 Minutes//Full Coverage

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…

Stay Matte and Flawless with $8

Back to the good old roots of budget friendly yet good quality. I found this Stay Matte Mousse Foundation by Rimmel and it is great! It can be risky with mousse and oily skin to not look glowing but shinning. This claims to be a lightweight shine control foundation – bonus points.   Before: As…

Affordable Cleansing System Review

I have a clarisonic – it’s amazing. I then lost the charger for it and to replace that alone is $30. I was at a small drugstore with my mom when I came across the Danielle Deep Facial Cleansing System. It retails for about $30-$40 CAD depending on where you buy. This brush is great…
