Silicone Facial Cleaner:There's many on the market, but this is the one that I picked up on Amazon. It works so well, and the charge lasts and lasts for months. I use this daily, and will even use it to remove makeup swatches on my arm and you will be so surprised how easily the swatches wash away. The leaner shape of this cleanser makes it so easy to wash your face and get into all the spots you want. I highly recommend this one.  (Purchase*)

Makeup Brush Spot Cleaner: I've been using this Quo Makeup Brush cleaner for daily spot cleaning. As soon as I'm done with the eye brushes that I used, I spray a paper towel and spot clean my brushes. This has been a game changer, because my favorite brushes are always ready to go. Since I don't use that many brushes in the morning, this doesn't add too much time to my routine. This Quo cleaner can be found at Shoppers Drugmart and I absolutely love it.(Purchase*)

Morphe 15T Your True Selfie Review and Swatches (Holiday 2018 Collection)

Morphe 15T True Selfie Review and Swatches (Holiday 2018 Collection)

The Morphe 15T Your True Selfie palette is a wonderful palette to play around with for fall and winter. It is limited edition at the moment, as were the 15 pan palettes from last years holiday collection but they were eventually made permanent. So, there's always a chance that they will make them permanent. Morphe's 15 pan palettes are some of my favorite palettes, I think it's a perfect amount of shades in a palette to create endless looks. Sometimes I don't feel like a palette offers enough mattes or shimmers, but these 15 pan palettes have all been hits for me. I love the mix of matte and shimmer shades and the range of colors in this palette. ThisYour True Selfie palette really drew me in with the earthy oranges, browns and those greens.

2019 Goals for Mrs Q Beauty



This past year has been the hardest I have ever had to live. I lost my mom in March, lost myself in the grief and really didn't know how this year would end. It ended with me learning how strong I really am, I am much stronger than I ever thought I was. In many ways, I see my mom in myself and how she raised me to lead a family. I also realized that this blog was so important to me this year. It allowed me to do something for myself and distract me from the grief. In 2019 I want to continue to create content, and pour my heart into this blog.

It's Friday, and I'm welcoming it. I took Monday off to spend with my son for his birthday and the entire week felt off. So, I'm happy for the weekend and the chance to reset for next week. My inlaws were also visiting this week, and I didn't get as much blogging in as I usually do. On the plus side, I haven't had to cook all week. It's been great. They're leaving Sunday, so next week should go back to normal.

Quo Cosmetics Megawatt Highlighter (Review and Swatches)

Quo Cosmetics Megawatt Highlighter

Quo Cosmetics is exclusive to Shoppers Drugmart, or Pharmaprix if you're in Quebec like I am. They're priced alittle higher than drugstore and release multiple products per collection. I do enjoy trying their products but they can be hit or miss. When I saw this Megawatt Highlighter in store I was intrigued, I swatched it and I was amazed! Wow, for 14$ this is a steal. The swatches were absolutely stunning. They remind me of the new Pixi Beauty Glow-y Gossamer Duo highlighters. The texture and pan size look very similar as well. I haven't swatched the Pixi highlighters but they are also on my wishlist.

Morphe 9A | Always Golden Review and Swatches

Morphe 9A | Always Golden Review and Swatches

The Morphe 9 pan palettes were previously Ulta Beauty exclusives and as a Canadian I didn't bother to order and pay for customs. When I saw them on Sephora Canada for 16$, I purchased the three that were available. This Always Golden Palette soon became a favorite with the 9B (review) Bronze Babe palette. These little palettes would be great for beginners and those of us who are in a hurry and don't want to think too much about color selection. You can grab this 9 pan palette, and get a complete look which I do appreciate. It also has enough shades to give you options.

Weekly Makeup Roundup (BH Cosmetics, Morphe, QUO, Mac Cosmetics, Dior, Maybelline, It Cosmetics)

Weekly Makeup Roundup (BH Cosmetics, Morphe, QUO, Mac Cosmetics, Dior, Maybelline, It Cosmetics)

It's Friday and time for another weekly round up and chat. It's my son's birthday party is tomorrow, and I can't believe he turns 5 on Monday. We're fully decorated for Christmas and my inlaws are visiting, they should be arriving tonight. It's going to be a busy weekend. I did take Monday off to spend the day with my little man for his birthday. This week I focused on the BH Cosmetics Desert Oasis palette, and I did dip back into the Morphe 12S palette. I will review the BH palette next week. I tried a variety of shades but I really want to dip into the blues. For my eyeshadow rotation, I want to try using more of my high end palettes. I need to make a point of pulling one out a week.

The Body Shop | Drops of Youth: Youth Bouncy Eye Mask Review

The Body Shop | Drops of Youth: Youth Bouncy Eye Mask Review

This little jar from the Body Shop has really settled into my skincare routine and I've been loving it. I didn't know how much I needed an eye cream until I started using one and saw the difference. The skin around my eye needs hydration, just as much as the rest of my skin. This Youth Bouncy Eye Mask can be used as a mask or an eye cream. I tend to use it as an eye cream at night and sometimes in the morning. It has a thin formula, it is not sticky and feels so cooling and refreshing on the eye area.
