Two Current Favourite Highlighters


Today I wanted to share a quick post about two highlighters that have been rocking my world lately. Highlighting is something that I have just really gotten into the last year, or so. I prefer my highlighter to be more subtle or natural looking and I have found two that are sooo dreamy.

First is the YSL Touchรฉ ร‰clat Lumiere Devine. The back of the packaging states that it is a highlighting finishing powder. I use this as a cheekbone highlighter and on my fair skin, keep reading…

Kat Von D | Alchemist Holographic Palette

Hello friends! I hope you are all having a wonderful week, so far! A few days ago I received my online order from Sephora. One of the items I ordered is the Kat Von D Alchemist Holographic Palette, which is completely out of my makeup comfort zone. It had been out-of-stock on for quite awhile and I suppose at some point, I signed up for an email to inform me when it was re-stocked. I got the email and decided to just go for it! There’s something about it that caught my attention. I’m normally attracted to more natural makeup shades but lately, the colours have been calling to me.

Tinted Moisturizers


The past few weeks I have been into using tinted moisturizers as a base instead of a heavier foundation. My skin has been fairly decent (minus a few breakouts) so I have been enjoying using something more fresh and light on my skin. I thought that I would share the two that I have been using, and loving!

Pixi H2O Skintint is a tinted face gel. The back writes:

“Cooling & hydrating. Sheer tinted water-based gel. Apply as you would a moisturizer & pat into skin.”

Disappointing Product | REN

Hello friends!

I hope you are all having a wonderful day/week! Today I wanted to write a quick post on a product I purchased ages ago, tested out for about three weeks and ultimately, gave up on. I have been holding on to it, trying to write this review before I got rid of it. Finally, here we are! I want to start off by saying that I have loved every REN product that I have tried. They make one of my very favourite facial serums. I had high hopes for this one but unfortunately, I was left pretty disappointed in the end. The product I’m talking about is called the Keep Young and Beautiful Instant Firming Beauty Shot.

Stila | 2 Gift Sets

Hi everyone!

A few days ago I was out at Shoppers Drug Mart, looking for a new facial toner. While at the counter to pay I noticed these two Stila gift sets sitting there…staring at me. I couldn’t just leave them there, they were so cute and all alone. I knew I could give them a good home.

Now, I have never owned a liquid lipstick made by Stila because I have not been able to decide on which shade to choose. I prefer nudes for everyday wear and Stila seems to have quite a wide variety! The first set that caught my eye was the Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick and Glitterati Lip Top Coat…phew, that’s quite the name! This set contains 5 mini lipsticks plus a glitter topcoat (multi-colour sparkle). The shades included are Baci (nude pink), Rubino (beet red), Fresco (mid tone dusty rose), Patina (dusty rose) and Bacca (raspberry). The reason this one caught my eye was because it contained a few of the shades that I had been trying to decide between. Now I don’t have to decide! Yippie! Here are some (sloppy) swatches for you: keep reading…
