Hourglass – Ambient Lighting Edit

It’s that time of year again when beauty brands bring out limited edition palettes/kits/collections to kick off the holiday season. The first thing on my radar was definitely the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit – Surreal Light ($95), which has already received a lot of varying opinions. As a previous Hourglass limited edition palette owner, I had to get my hands on this year’s version.

Monthly Favourites – July 2016

The end of July means we’re starting to approach the end of summer in Canada. For me, it’s actually quite exciting because fall is definitely my favourite season but for now, lets recap the products I love during the height of the Canadian summer:

Tarte x Grav3yardgirl Swap Queen Palette & New Sephora Opening

Happy Friday everyone! Yesterday I went to the opening of the new Sephora store at Yonge & Eglinton (in Toronto). I live in the area and I also grew up in the area so the fact there is now a Sephora steps away from my couch is incredibly exciting (and dangerous for my bank account).

Monthly Favourites – January 2016

A new year, a new round of favourites. Admittedly, some of the products/brands were 2015 discoveries but these were definitely all daily products for me in January.

MAC – Ellie Goulding

The second I saw MAC’s Ellie Goulding collection I was sold. The neutral colours, the bronze glow and the chic packaging all from my current music obsession – perfect!

Monthly Favourites - October 2015

I absolutely loved October because fall was in full swing! Lots of layers, boots, jackets and berry lips – perfection! I actually resurrected a lot of products from last fall this October but fear not, with my birthday is coming up later this month and I know I’ll have a whole slew of new products to talk to you about. Here are a few things I loved in October.

Monthly Favourites – June 2015

Happy favourites time everyone! The majority of products included in this collection of Favourites are products that ended up being essential on my recent vacation in Italy. I’m not going to bore you with another eyeshadow pencil/stick shout out (although I did bring those with me) but these are a few (other) products that I travelled with in June.

The Brightest Blush in the Land

You can probably tell from the name of my blog that I love my blush – I really can’t leave the house without it. For months, I have been extremely loyal to the Hourglass Ambient Light blushes but recently, a new and extremely pigmented blush has taken the spotlight – Urban Decay Afterglow Blush in Crush ($31).

Lipstick Queen Liquid Assets

I have wanted to try some Lipstick Queen products for ages but they are impossible to find in Canada! Since I made a few feelunique.com orders last month, I couldn’t help but get this set of three Lipstick Queen Liquid Assets – especially because the set was on sale (win!).

Best of Beauty 2014 – Best Products of 2014 Part 1

Monthly Favourties – December 2014

I hope everyone had an amazing holiday! I took a little holiday break from blogging (hence why there are two Monthly Favourites posts in a row) but now that I am full to the brim with turkey and cookies, I am back in full force. December for me has been all about adjusting to the cold weather and putting down some old favourites to make room for some new additions.

NARS Virtual Domination Palette

If you saw my Sephora VIB Rouge Haul post, you’ll recognize the NARS Virtual Domination Cheek Palette ($75). I’ve been kicking myself ever since I missed the boat on last year’s NARS x Guy Bourdin One Night Stand Blush Palette, so I definitely wasn’t going to miss this one.

Loose Button Luxe Box – Fall 2014

I have tried countless beauty boxes and the reality is; they seem really cool but tend to be pretty lack luster once they arrive. I try not to be a pessimist but I’ve been through it all with beauty boxes, including but not limited to missing products in the box, broken products, even never receiving a box and never receiving a refund. These days I only receive one beauty box, Loose Button’s Luxe Box ($26 every 3 months or $50 every 6 months or $96 every 12 months).

Charlotte Tilbury – First Try, First Impression

It’s here everyone. Charlotte Tilbury has officially launched her coveted beauty collection in the U.S. Being Canadian; I was both excited and concerned because there was a chance that I STILL wouldn’t be able to get my hands on it. Fret not everyone, I took advantage of Net-A-Porter's last day of free shipping last week and got my hands on a few products.

MAC Simpsons Makeup; Purple, Monkey, Dishwasher.

Everything’s coming up Milhouse! Yesterday I received an online MAC Cosmetics order with the two blushes that are part of the new Simpsons collection. Being a Simpsons fan, I have been patiently waiting for the collection to be released and I can’t wait to tell you about it!

Tarte Rainforest After Dark Palette

It was love at first sight with the Tarte Rainforest After Dark Colored Clay Eye & Cheek Palette. It was on my on my mind all the time and I could not be more excited to have it in my life (total beauty crush). This has everything I need in one beautifully packaged place, making it one of my favorite palettes of all time. If this beauty hasn’t seduced you yet – it will be by the end of this post.

Monthly Favourites - July 2014

Some of my favorite blogs and vlogs to read/watch are monthly favorites and I have been dying to do my own. Every month I will do a post on my fav products, mostly beauty, but I might add the occasional miscellaneous favorite now and again. Here it is!
