November Favourites

Hello mah babies!

So today I thought I would let you know what products were my absolute favourites from last month! I also have been thinking about making this a permanent thing, and will try to post monthly about my overall favourites for said month.dscn0073

Now, in November I did quite a bit of shopping BUT there were 3 things that seriously amazed me. I think it says a lot about these items that out of everything only 3 stuck out.

First is the Nip +Fab Viper Venom Micro Blur Fix. I have actually been on a Nip + Fab spree and am really loving some of their things. This actually reminds me of Porefessional from Benefit. But way cheaper. It blurs your pores to make them less noticeable and it makes your skin super smooth. I have been using it as a primer but also have been using it on days without make up. A definite 8/10 on a primer scale.

The Tarte Amazonian Clay foundation is my next thing. I have never fallen in love with a foundation so fast. Before this one I tried the Estee Lauder Double Wear and wasn’t a big dscn0150fan. Which feels weird to say because everyone else loves it but it just wasn’t for me. BUT this stuff has been so great. It is full coverage, but doesn’t feel thick after application. It stays beautiful all day, even without setting spray. I seriously have nothing bad to say about this foundation. I have been through ALOT of foundations and I have never found one that I really felt was perfect for me until now.

Okay let’s talk plumpers. I love plumpers BUT I hate them, you know? Even with my hate for them, I picked up Too Faced’s Lip Injection Extreme and OH MY GOD. This is probably the first plumper that has actually plumped. Most plumpers give me that tingly feeling but my lips never look different. This stuff actually did what it said it would. On top of that, it doesn’t feel all sticky and tacky like a lot of plumpers. Too Faced has definitely changed how I feel about plumpers and I am glad I actually gave it a try.

Was there anything you have recently tried that really just over went your expectations?

Also, before I bow out on this post, we hit our 1,000 marker! This means keep your eyes out for an upcoming post about how to enter the giveaway and also information on the giveaway item!

Talk to you guys soon!  xx

 

Cotton masks w/ bbeautylimited

bblmaskHello my little loves! I just renewed my domain, and something about that just felt exciting! I can’t believe it has been a year since I have started blogging. I’ve gotten to meet and talk to so many new people and try new things.

Speaking of which, lets dive in. So recently I got to try some great masks from bbeautylimited which is ran by Lisa and Madoka who are seriously sweet and lovely.

Let me tell you, these masks are wonderful. First off they are cotton sheet masks, so they are super easy to apply and remove and don’t make a huge mess. Lisa and Madoka were kind enough to send me a Papaya and Jojoba Oil mask. They were both amazing for their own reasons. The Papaya was my favourite in terms of smell, but in terms of how my face felt I found the Jojoba Oil very soothing.

As you all know, I am huge on skincare, and masks like these really pick your skin up. Especially with all this cold weather. I cannot say it enough you guys: exfoliate and moisturize. If not, this cold weather will seriously do your skin in.

So go give these lovely ladies a follow, and check out their products, you won’t regret it.

You can find them on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter @bbeautylimited as well as their website, linked at the beginning of this post!

What are some of you guys’ favourite sheet masks?

Carli Bybel – yay or nay?

Hello beauties!openface

I hope you all had a good holiday and had fun with your families. Sorry this post was so late. I was out of state for the holiday and didn’t have a chance to update before I left. Now before I jump into this post, I did want to let you all know that we are about 13 followers away from the 1,000 mark! 13! So make sure you tell your friends and share the blog on Twitter/IG/FB. Once we hit that, the giveaway instructions will go up. The giveaway prize is a $120 dollar value, and soon you will know what it is (also there may be upcoming hints on my IG) 😛

eyeshadowNow, for what you came for.

So, this is actually my first BHcosmetics purchase. I have seen/heard mixed reviews so it took me a while to try anything from the brand. So when I was walking around Ulta a few weeks ago, I saw the Carli Bybel palette, and it was getting a lot of hype. I figured for less than $15 it was worth a try. It totally was. I am a highlighter fiend and was looking for new shadows and thought it was a perfect combo.

Seriously, this is the best palette you can get for under $20. Everything is so smooth and buttery, kind of like the ABH palettes. They are also a lot more pigmented than you would think they would be for the price. Also ignore my swatching, I tried doing a straight line and it just did not work out for me, lol. img_1463

The highlighters vary in shades, which is great because there is a highlight for a lot of skin tones, however, because of that and because I am so pale, I can only really use two. BUT I’m not gonna complain too much because it is still such a great palette.

Both the highlighters and eyeshadows blend very well and stay well through out the day. Definitely a 10/10 for me and I totally recommend it.

Does anyone have any favourite BHcosmetics products they love? What else should I try?

Lush for the holidays

img_1042Hello my little honeybees, sorry for the super late post! I’ve just started going back to school for my bachelors so I have been a little busy getting back into that routine. We are super close to our giveaway goal! Once we hit the mark I will post the instructions for entering!

So today, I wanted to share some of the amazing holiday product’s that some sweet people from Lush sent to me. Disclaimer: I am not endorsed or sponsored. Just a few PR goodies I thought I would share with you.

img_1043Let me tell you, their new holiday items are amazing and beautiful. I am always amazed by how cute some of their products are. First on the cute train, the Santasaurus bubblebar. Okay, can we talk about how adorable the name is? I mean, seriously. It smells just like their “Honey I Washed the Kids” scent, and it’s just freaking amazing.

The Sugar Plum Fairy lip scrub and tint are wonderful as well. I am a big fan of their lip scrubs and this is by far my favourite. The smell is just seriously amazing. *heart eyes emoji*

If you are in search for a new shower gel, Bubbly is so good. I honestly love to just sniff it. It has a wonderful citrus smell. It actually kind of reminds me of something but I haven’t been able to put my finger on just what. Speaking of shower products, my new favourite thing is the Christingle body conditioner. Even though I feel like I’m rubbing Icy Hot and toothpaste on my body, I love the tingle and the way my skin stays moisturized after. Sleepy hand/body lotion is also great for moisturizing. I am super thankful for these products, especially with the colder weather coming around, moisturizing is important because the cold weather dries me out so badly.

What are some of your favourite holiday Lush’s items?

 

 

Nightly skin routine

So me and Emily (Beauty and Brushes) decided to discuss our nightly skincare routines witimg_1020h you guys! So make sure to check out her page to see what products she likes to use 😛

My routine is pretty simple and quick. So I will list the products in the order I use them.  Some products you may remember from previous posts, and others you may not.

First, I use Radha Beauty’s vitamin C cleanser to remove any dirt and left over make up I may have left on my face.

I follow that with Formula 10.0.6’s One Smooth Operator to exfoliate and remove impurities.

I apply a thin layer of Radha Beauty’s Clear Skin Anti-Acne Treatment because my skin hates me, especially during my img_1021period D:

I usually leave that an hour or two then right before bed I apply Beyond Belief’s lift & firm eye cream and a vitamin c & hyaluronic acid serum combo.

There: Quick, simple, and easy!

What are some of your favourite skin care products?

holy swatches, batman!

 

img_0339Sorry sorry sorry for being so late.

I recently just started up my courses for my bachelors degree so I have been running around like a lunatic doing this and that. If you have been on my Instagram, I have posted a couple of mini-posts there for you guys.

So as promised, I have brought you swatches from Cargo’s ‘Chill in the Six’ palette that I posted about not too long ago on Instagram.

Also, disclosure, I did receive the product for the purpose of review, but am not sponsored or receiving compensation.

Now, as many of you know I am a HUGE fan of warm colours, and reds and oranges are my favourite. BUT BUT BUT, these colours are SO amazing. This may be one of the very few cool-tone palettes that I really enjoy. You can also make so many amazing smoky eye looks. I especially love making a smoky eye with ‘Hockey’ and using ‘Blizzard’ on the eye lid. *drool*

I think this palette is super cute in it’s overall look. ‘Chill in the Six’ was made to pay its dues to where Cargo Cosmetics started, in Toronto. So all of the names of the shadows are very Canadian, and I think it is adorable! These colours are great for fall/winter.

I also thought it was fun how the colours are broken into quads. So you can use them however, or use within the colour scheme of a quad!

What are your favourite Cargo products? Or what Cargo products have you been wanting to try out?

Updates: Don’t forget to share the blog around so we can get to 1,000 followers and have the next giveaway! I am super excited. The last giveaway went so well so I am looking forward to this.

Also, I finally made a Facebook page for the blog if you would like to check that out and share/like it! I will post the at the bottom with all other social media links!

Also I do have Snapchat as well @shawnadawnx

Ciao for now! xx
