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 - 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 – September 2015

September has been an absolute whirlwind for me. Between TIFF, Just For Laughs and travel, the past month has been absolutely jam-packed. That being said, with so many different events to go to, I definitely tried my fair share of beauty products in September.

CHANEL - Entrelacs Eyeshadow Palette

I’m actually rather late to the party on this one; I’m usually all over a new CHANEL palette. Regardless, I’m still incredibly excited to talk about the CHANEL Entrelacs Palette ($75) - I just can’t keep my hands off of it!

Colourful Clinique Mascara

I used the CHANEL Inimitable Intense Mascara in Rouge Noir ($38) for years, and when I saw Clinique’s latest Chubby Lash Fattening Mascara in Black Honey ($20), it instantly reminded me of my old favourite.

Monthly Favourites - April 2015

Hello again beautiful readers - apologies for my unexpected disappearance! In the name of full disclosure, my camera was misplaced during the recent move to my new condo and after taking my newly organized living space apart, I finally found it. The one good thing that came out of losing my camera, putting blogging on hold in the process, is that I have some GREAT new beauty discoveries to share – starting with my April Favourites!

Monthly Favourites – February 2015

Another month completed means another monthly favourites. It was pretty cold in Toronto for the past month but it certainly didn’t stop me from going out and picking up a few new beauty bits and a Toronto-tastic winter accessory.

The ‘Get To Know Me’ Post

With the holidays and New Year festivities over, it’s time to get back to a regular schedule of things. That being said, until further notice, blogs will go up Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 9 a.m. EST – finally figured out a scheduled! As I was trying to organize my blog a little over the weekend, I noticed that I haven’t really told you guys very much about myself. Don’t get me wrong, I definitely want this blog to be all about the content (reviews, favourties, etc.) but it’s always nice to know who’s giving you your information, so I thought it would be nice to start off the week by sharing a little bit about myself.

CHANEL for the Holidays

I always look forward to CHANEL’s Holiday collection and I couldn’t wait to get my hands on the latest in CHANEL beauty. Surprisingly, I was definitely drawn to more products last year but I still couldn’t help but purchase a couple standout products.

Review – Chantecaille Future Skin

Chantecaille Future Skin in Alabaster ($89) is a product that I’ve been testing since July. For some reason, my opinion has changed on this product countless times, I just couldn’t decide whether this was really worth the high price tag. I think it’s finally time to break this product down and give you my thoughts.

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 – September 2014

I have to start off this blog by apologizing for my absence. Somehow, I managed to loose my camera, making it quite difficult to put together my blog posts (I love my iPhone but it really wasn’t cutting it). I finally have my camera back and it’s time to get the ball rolling again!

With the weather going back and forth from warm to cool last month, I feel like I switched up my makeup routine quite often. Despite the frantic change in weather; there are a few products that I just couldn’t put down last month.

CHANEL Vitalumière Aqua Loose Powder Foundation – The Verdict

This is a review that I have been dying to do. I know there have been mixed reviews of the CHANEL Vitalumière Aqua Loose Powder Foundation ($79), so I really wanted to wait a couple of weeks before I made my final decision. The verdict is…I love it!

First Look - CHANEL Rouge Allure Glosses

My mom and I frequent the CHANEL counter at Hudson’s Bay in Yorkdale Shopping Centre A LOT. It’s a good/bad thing when every sales associate and special event make-up artists knows who you are. Once again, my mom and I found ourselves at the CHANEL counter but this time is was extra exciting because we got the first peeks of the Rouge Allure Glosses!

Nail Polish Edit

My name is Betta and I am a nail polish-aholic. I love nail polish; I can’t deny it. I honestly have enough nail polish to open a shop. After taking a good look at my huge stash, I have forced myself to sort through all these beautiful nail colours and choose my top five polishes. Many grueling hours later, here are my picks:

CHANEL Powders + CHANEL Makeup Event

I admit it; I am a CHANEL base addict. I think when it comes to base products (i.e. foundations, powders, concealers) CHANEL really does a great job at creating products that make your skin look flawless. My “holy grail” powder is the CHANEL Mat Lumière powder ($64) but I recently branched out from my staple product and tried the CHANEL Vitalumière Compact Douceur ($66). Even though the packaging is exactly the same, there are some significant differences between the two.

Make Up For Ever HD Microfinish Powder

As a girl with an oily t-zone, a good powder is always my partner in crime. The Make Up For Ever HD Microfinish Power has been a makeup bag staple for me for years. I started using this powder when I was in university. It was the only thing that would keep my face relatively shine free on nights out in crowded bars and sold out concerts.

Luxury Concealing

If you’re familiar with Amelia Liana (if not, you should be) then you know what it means to be #feelingspendy. This concealer that I’ve been using for over a month now is probably one the most #feelingspendy items you can buy; the coveted and much debated Clé de Peau Concealer.
