Highlight

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.

NUDESTIX – Skin Glossing Pencil

I’m a total sucker for a good multitasking product. With so many different beauty bits to choose from, it’s nice to be able to check off multiple boxes with one product. One of my favourites at the moment is the NUDESTIX Skin Glossing Pencil ($28) to add radiance to my cheeks, lips and eyes.

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).

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.

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.

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.
