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.

Too Faced – Cocoa Contour Kit

There are a lot of contour & highlight palettes out there that contain tons and tons of different shade, most of which a lot of people realistically won’t use on a daily basis. That being said, I searched high and low for a streamlined contour palette that is more simplified for daily use. Enter the Two Faced Cocoa Contour Chiseled To Perfection ($50) in Light to Medium. With two contour shades and two highlight shades, this is definitely one of the more simple palettes available.

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 – February 2016

With my collection of beauty products getting bigger and bigger each day, sometimes it’s nice to take a little buying break and “shop” my current collection. February was all about searching through the products that have fallen by the wayside over the past few months.

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!

NUDESTIX Bronzing Pencil

NUDESTIX is quickly become one of my favourite brands. Long lasting products that are incredibly easy to use and very travel friendly. What else does a girl need? I added one more pencil to my NUDESTIX collection recently - the fabulous Bronzing Pencil ($28).

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.

Monthly Favourite - October 2014

Happy November everyone!

I love the start of a new month because that means new Monthly Favourites. October has been jam packed with new favs. I started a new job in October (the reason for my temporary absence) so I’ve been all about those quick in easy products that are early morning friendly – I’m still not used to this whole having to be at a professional office at a specific time thing.

Monthly Favourites - August 2014

It’s that time again when I round up my most loved products of the past month. I made a lot of new beauty discoveries in August and dug up some older purchases that I had forgotten about. I hope you enjoy my favs!

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.
