Monthly Favourites – June 2016
Happy July! I hope my fellow Canadians had a great Canada Day last Friday and I hope all the Americas out there are having a good Fourth of July today. These Favourites are kind of all over the map this time around; some makeup, some skincare and toothpaste, so keep reading to find out what I loved in June.
Urban Decay – Vice Lipsticks
When a beauty brand announces that they are launching 100 new and reformulated lipstick shades – makeup lovers from around the globe perk up and come to attention. With so many colours to choose from in six different formulas, I had to get my hands on the Urban Decay Vice Lipsticks ($21) the second I could.
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).
Much to my dismay, my skin has gotten far too light to effectively use my coveted Clé de Peau Concealer. With that, I am pleased to say that I have found a far more affordable but just as effective alternative in the Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer in Light Neutral ($34).

#FOTD - Current Work Face
I’ve been at my “new” job for a month and a half now and being on the work grind has changed my daily makeup priorities a little bit. Firstly, whatever I put on my face needs to stay on for the whole day; I don’t want to look like a zombie at 5:00pm. Secondly, I like to have that “naturally flawless” look when I go to work, so no bold red lips for me. Lastly, it needs to be comfortable, no thick and drying lipsticks or heavy foundations.
Giant VIB Rouge Sephora Haul
Last night I went to the Sephora VIB Rouge Holiday event at Yorkdale Shopping Centre. The event was jam packed with drinks, treats, makeovers, facials, free samples and most importantly – 20% off all purchases!! Of course, I couldn’t help myself and I managed to do a bit of damage at the store. I haven’t tried most of these products before (two of which are for my mom) but I thought I would let you guys know what caught my eye at Sephora, in no particular order.
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.
