Colourpop It's My Pleasure Palette (Review and Swatches)

Colourpop It's My Pleasure Palette (Review and Swatches)

The Colourpop It's My Pleasure palette is one of Colourpop's 9 pan monochromatic palettes. This purple palette is gorgeous when you look at it. It has 3 mattes, one matte with flecks of glitter and 5 metallics. The mix of matte and metallics really set this palette up to be a well rounded purple palette. The Bling Boss by Morphe X Jaclyn Hill was gorgeous but it's missing a mid-tone purple to help blend out the dark shades, where this palette has both and I have a much easier time creating looks. I might use this palette to help me with the Bling Boss. 

L'Oreal Infallible 24H Fresh Wear Foundation Review

L'Oreal Infallible 24H Fresh Wear Foundation Review

The L'Oreal Infallible 24H Fresh Wear is one of the newest foundations to come to the drugstore and I've heard so many positive reviews that I really wanted to give it a try myself. This foundation claims to be medium to full coverage, breathable and lightweight. I will say I was surprised by how thin the texture was and the coverage that I received with a sponge. It was medium coverage right away, and yes it builds up nicely. The finish is very natural, and I do agree with their "second skin" claim. Additionally, the formula has oil absorbers to resist swear, water and transfer. I really don't like when foundations transfer so that was a nice bonus. This foundation is good for all skin types and comes in 30 shades.

Revlon Rose Glow Illuminating and Hydrating Primer


The Revlon Rose Glow Hydrating and Illuminating Primer was a new find at my local drugstore. I'm not sure how new it is because beauty products do get to Canada a bit later. This is a Photoready product in Revlon's line. You know I love the L'Oreal Glotion and thought this might be another base product that I would love. It claims to have "many benefits, one little bottle; smoothes skin for foundation, deposits a rosy pearlescence; plus, it helps skin feel hydrated for up to 24 hours." I thought it would be another product I would like on its own when wanting to forgo the foundation. 

Morphe 35V Stunning Vibes (Review and Swatches)

Morphe 35V Stunning Vibes (Review and Swatches)

It's been a few months since I picked up a Morphe palette. The last palettes I purchased from Morphe was from their holiday collection. The blues and purples of this palette really drew me in, this palette was exclusively sold at Ulta and due to customs and exchange, I didn't purchase it. When Sephora Canada released it, I was able to pick it up in store.

Benefit Bad Gal Bang Mascara (Review) A new favorite.

Benefit Bad Gal Bang Mascara (Review) A new favorite.
Benefit's Badgal Bang mascara has quickly become a favourite, which says a lot because I'm picky when it comes to mascara. I need all the help I can get with volume and length. This mascara claims to be a 36 hours mascara, that "creates massive volume without weighing down the lashes." I did not test the 36 hours, because who needs a 36-hour mascara? I remember the brand trips when this first launched and it was spaced themes which I didn't really understand until I read that this was a "gravity-defying formula [that] builds volume the more you layer, and contain aero-particles, one of the lightest known materials, derived from space technology." That put it into perspective for me, and I do really find it to be a lightweight formula. 

Why Do Women Wear Makeup? Looking at Makeup in a positive, uplifting light. (Blogger Collaboration)

Why Do Women Wear Makeup? Looking at Makeup in a positive, uplifting light. (Blogger Collaboration)

As a makeup wearer, I really don't like the negative stereotypical responses that I hear about wearing makeup. We've all seen these meme's pop up. If you choose to wear makeup that's your choice; if you don't that's yours as well. I don't believe in uplifting yourself while putting others down. Women are not wearing makeup for attention, we're not wearing makeup because we're being deceitful, and we're not wearing it for men. Makeup is a form of expression, a form of art, it's a form of self-care and there's nothing wrong with it. The beauty industry is huge and many influencers have been able to create their own businesses because of makeup. That's amazing! The roundup of women wearing makeup is so diverse that you cannot put the makeup wearers into a "one size fits all" box. Women of all ages are wearing makeup and the ability to learn about applying makeup is so much easier to obtain in today's social media driven world. Youtube and blogging have taught me so much.

Beauty Glazed | Mars Palette (Review and Swatches)

Beauty Glazed | Mars Palette (Review and Swatches)

The Beauty Glazed 9 pan palettes really caught my attention when Tammi Clarke on Youtube compared the Beauty Glazed to the Huda Beauty 9 pan palettes. They have similar concepts, and packaging but Beauty Glazed is not an exact match up in terms of colour. They've give their own take on these colour stories and named them after planets. The Mars palette seemed like it would have colours that I would love. I thought for 6$ including shipping I would give it a try too. I really didn't expect to like this palette but once I swatched it, I couldn't wait to try it out.

Maybelline Snapscara (Black and Black Cherry) Review and Swatches

Maybelline Snapscara (Black and Black Cherry) Review and Swatches

Maybelline Snapscara is a fairly new mascara at the drugstore. It claims to be "on and off in a snap." The formula for the Snapscara is wax free and idea for sensitive eyes. The formula allows you to easily remove the mascara with a cotton pad and warm water only and no rubbing on the eyes. Sounds great, right? Well as for removing the mascara I did find it very easy to remove and didn't have residue left over in the morning. Some mascaras are so hard to remove that you feel like you're damaging your lashes in the process.
