Fenty Beauty by Rihanna | Gloss Bomb in Fenty Glow

The Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer in Fenty Glow was the only lip product released in Fenty Beauty’s initial launch. It was also the only product I was interested in because I’ve really been into lip products lately and its initial reviews were quite positive. I’ve never been much of a gloss gal (thanks to…… Continue reading Fenty Beauty by Rihanna | Gloss Bomb in Fenty Glow

Glossier Cloud Paint in Dusk | Review and Swatches

I’ve heard primarily positive reviews about the Glossier Cloud Paints (bff link) since they were first released, so I knew that I would pick one up if and when I made my first order. They’re $22 CAD / $18 USD, which is a little pricey for 10 ml / 0.33 fl oz. I can imagine finishing one…… Continue reading Glossier Cloud Paint in Dusk | Review and Swatches

Glossier Boy Brow in Blond | Swatch Comparison and First Impressions

It happened. Despite my aversion to pink, the we’re-not-like-other-makeup-brands marketing, and the constant pleads from strangers to use their referral link, I made my first Glossier* order. Are you tired of hearing about @glossier? Me too. Do you cringe at reminders to smile, millennial pink, and the 👋🏼 emoji? Same. Am I going to post…… Continue reading Glossier Boy Brow in Blond | Swatch Comparison and First Impressions

My first drugstore mascara

I was recently able to try my first ever drugstore mascara, the Revlon Mega Multiplier™ Mascara, complimentary via Influenster Canada. I tried the shade Blackened Brown. Revlon claims that “unique fibres are sealed in 360° tubes that plump and extend lashes for mega volume and extreme length.” I’m usually not a fan of mascara with…… Continue reading My first drugstore mascara

Natasha Denona: Worth the hype?

The Natasha Denona Eyeshadow Palette 5 in 2 (Rosewood, Lavender Gray, Shell, Light Coral, and Maroon) contains one matte and four metallic eyeshadows. The official description claims that they are “buttery” (not literally) and “soft” (this is true). The formula is supposed to be “revolutionary” (not really), “ultra pigmented” (only if you apply them a certain…… Continue reading Natasha Denona: Worth the hype?

My Favourite Makeup Brushes | Part 1: FACE

In this post, I will be talking about the face brushes that I reach for regularly. The brands, hair types, and price points featured are quite diverse. I think it’s important to note that the most expensive or most popular brushes aren’t necessarily the best. Before purchasing new makeup brushes, you should know which shapes and hair types…… Continue reading My Favourite Makeup Brushes | Part 1: FACE

NARS Soft Matte Complete Concealer | Review and Comparison

I’ve never been a huge fan of concealer. I love the idea of it, but I’ve never been able to find one that blended naturally into my skin. I have a rotation of concealers that I use regularly because they’re “good enough” to get the job done, but I have never been super happy with…… Continue reading NARS Soft Matte Complete Concealer | Review and Comparison

Dior Addict Lacquer Stick in 570 LA Pink | First Impressions Review and Swatches

I had trouble finding reviews and swatches for the new Dior Addict Lacquer Sticks, especially in the shade 570 LA Pink. I’ve only had this lipstick for a day, but I wanted to share my first impressions as quickly as possible. LA Pink is described as a “rosewood,” which is pretty accurate. The finish is pretty shiny,…… Continue reading Dior Addict Lacquer Stick in 570 LA Pink | First Impressions Review and Swatches

#TheLipPencil: New Lipliners from Bite Beauty

I have been testing out the new lipliners, called The Lip Pencil, from Bite Beauty throughout the month and I am ready to share my thoughts with you. Bite Beauty is one of my favourite brands, so that made my first ever makeup-related VoxBox from Influenster all the more exciting. (I received this products complimentary from…… Continue reading #TheLipPencil: New Lipliners from Bite Beauty

Le Marc Liquid Lip Crème vs. Burberry Liquid Lip Velvet

I’ve always loved the idea of liquid lipsticks (long-lasting colour that doesn’t transfer? yes please!), and I purchased several Kat Von D and Stila liquid lipsticks a few years ago when they were the major players on the market. I wanted to love them, but I couldn’t. Sure, it’s nice not having to worry your lipstick wearing…… Continue reading Le Marc Liquid Lip Crème vs. Burberry Liquid Lip Velvet
