All About Mascara

Hello!

Today I wanted to talk a little bit about four different mascara’s I have been trying out over the past few months. They are all deluxe size samples that I have acquired from various places. Some I really like and some, I do not. I thought it would be fun to share the reasons why I liked/disliked these! I’ll start with my least favourite and move up to my favourite! Lets get into it: 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 Sephora.ca 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

Hello!

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.

Product Thoughts | Sephora Favourties Items & More – Part 3

Hello!! Is anyone still there!!?? I just looked and it has been 5 months since my last post! Sheesh!! School started for me last September and although I knew it would be challenging, I have been blown away by how insane and intense this program is. Today though, I had my very first skills test, which involved doing a couple of the skills we have learned so far on a pretend patient in the simulation lab at our college. We didn’t know which skills we would have to perform until we started our test so I was really nervous. I get terrified when I have to “perform” in front of someone while they critique me. But good news, I did PERFECT!! All those days and hours of studying and practicing sure paid off today! So, since tonight I have zero homework, I thought I would write the post I have been trying to write for almost 5 months now. We’re going to talk about a few products (mostly deluxe size samples) that I have received through various Sephora Favourties boxes and such. I still have a zillion more to try out but these are the ones I have tried so far: keep reading…

Product Thoughts | Sephora Favourites Items & More – Part 2

Hello everyone! I hope you’re all fabulous today! I’m so happy because today the sun is shining and the snow is melting! It’s finally starting to feel like spring and that makes me a happy girl. I posted (here) awhile ago a few little reviews of some of the items I had received from some Sephora Favourite’s sets. I love those little bundles, the are a great way to try out some great items without having to splurge on a full size right away. Today I’m back with another similar post. I have more items from these sets that I have been using and a few extra deluxe size samples of products that are almost used up. I thought I would include these before I finish them up and throw them out. There are a lot of items this time so let’s get into it! keep reading…

Two Mascara Disappointments

Hi everyone! I hope you are all having a wonderful Thursday! Today I wanted to share with you two mascara’s that I have tried recently. Unfortunately neither one made me happy with my lashes and are now on their way to the trash bin.

First up, touch in SOL Stretchex Stretch Lash Effect Mascara. This full sized tube came in a Sephora favourites set a few months ago. I tried the mascara on three separate occasions and was seriously let down each time. It’s not necessarily the mascara’s fault though. My lashes are naturally quite long so lengthening isn’t something I look for. Volumizing is what I like. This mascara has a really skinny wand with a hint of a curve to it. It separated and lengthened my lashes but there was zero volume. Personally, I just don’t like it. keep reading…
