July Favourites!

Can you believe it's already August? This summer just flew by and I feel so overwhelmed because August is going to be a super busy month for me, preparing for University in the Fall and such. I haven't tried out too much this past month but I think I have a pretty decent round up of favourites to share with you all! I liked to keep it simple with my makeup in July, doing a lot of one shadow all over the lid type looks, and I think it looked really nice (plus so much faster to achieve!)
The first thing I've really been obsessing over is the Nip + Fab Soften Kale Fix Clay Mask. I've tried the whole line of their Kale products (review coming soon!), but this is the one product I'm so hooked on. If you have any issues with your skin looking dull or dry (which can happen, summer or winter!), put this on your skin and you'll reveal soft, radiant skin. I've been using it twice a week since I got it, and it's quickly become a must-have in my skincare routine.

Like I said before, I've really been enjoying one shadow all over the lid type looks this summer, and when I want something a bit more dramatic and eye catching, I always reached for Colourpop's Super Shock Shadow in 'White Rabbit' which is the most gorgeous mix of a shimmery copper with the hint of pink.
For lips, I've been switching between 2 different products all month. First, when I want a more natural lip look, I've been loving the BITE Amuse Bouche Liquid Lipstick in Eclair. This was sent to me (along with 2 other shades) from Influenster, and I've been addicted to it ever since. This shade is a pretty dusty rose colour that looks good with any makeup look. I'll have a full review on that soon!
The other lip product I've been loving is the Covergirl Oh Sugar! Lipstick in Punch. I recently dyed my hair black and I love how my hair looks paired with a red lip. However red lipstick isn't really functional on a daily basis, so I wanted something that was a bit more toned down. This is one of those lip products that is more like a balm with a tint of colour to it. I love this because it does offer some pretty substantial pigmentation while also being super glossy and hydrating.
I've also been loving the Green Beaver Company's Natural Deodorant in the Lavender scent. I have a review up on my blog already (you can read it here) if you want to know more about it, but this is just such a great natural deodorant!
The final thing I've been loving in July is the Too Faced Cat Eyes palette. I love the mix of purples and coppery brown shades in this palette. I'm especially obsessed with the 3 highlighting shades on the side. They all look similar in the pan but they're so uniquely different on the skin. The bottom shade 'Kitten' is an almost iridescent pearly purple that makes the coolest highlighting shade ever.
All the shades perform pretty well when it comes to pigmentation. I haven't used the darker colours on my eyes yet, but the palette claims you can use them wet as eyeliner, so I might just try that out soon.

What were you loving in the month of July? Let me know in the comments!

June Favourites!

 Another month has come to an end, which means it's time for my monthly favourites! I have  smaller bunch of products this month, but I love them all so much. Some of them are new to me and others are rediscovered old favourites.
 First, I've really been loving my Colourpop Ultra Matte Lip in the shade 'Donut'. It's the most perfect bright pink colour that looks so pretty in the summertime. I've really been reaching for this one a lot, especially since I've been keeping my eye looks a bit more neutral.

I've also gotten a lot of use out of my Annabelle BB Compact Makeup, as I'm sure you can tell by the generous amount of pan I've hit on it. I use this powder to set my makeup. It adds an extra little bit of coverage, and darkens my foundation a little bit, which is good since the foundation I'm using right now is my winter shade, so a little too light.
 Of course, I've been roped in by the hype surrounding the L'Oreal Voluminous Lash Paradise mascara. I really do believe it deserves the hype it gets. It's for sure a dupe for my beloved Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara, and at a fraction of the price, I'm on board 100%.
 I've really been enjoying the Rimmel Lasting Finish 25 hour foundation this month. It offers great medium buildable coverage, is super long lasting, and leaves a very flawless finish on the skin. I'm not too sure what "Comfort Serum" is, but considering my skin has been dry to the point of discomfort this month, I will agree that this foundation has been comfortable to wear.

Finally, I started using my Too Faced Chocolate Bar palette on a near daily basis again, and I've fallen in love with it all over.

I still firmly believe that this is a must have in any persons makeup collection, whether you're a beginner or a makeup junkie.

It's the perfect collection of wearable neutrals that never get boring.

That's all for my monthly favourites for June! This month just flew by, it's so crazy. Can't wait to see what July has in store... (Hopefully a bit more sun and heat... the weather in Canada hasn't been too "summery" yet, unfortunately!)

Have a wonderful July everybody!

Huge Colourpop Haul!!

If there is one brand that I just cannot resist browsing (and ordering) from, it has to be Colourpop. A while back Colourpop was having free international shipping, which in other words means I couldn't help myself. Of course, I had to share everything I got because I'm SO excited!

I picked up a little bit of everything, and I'm really happy with everything. One of the Super Shock Shadows I ordered came in damaged unfortunately, but thankfully the texture of the shadows makes it really easy to just press it nicely back into the pot. Not the prettiest, but still works just as well.
Anyway, Here's what I picked up!:

Lips: 
Ultra Satin Lip in Chandelier
Ultra Matte Lip in Donut
Ultra Satin Lip in Cozy
Ultra Satin Lip in Bare Necessities
Ultra Glossy Lip in My Jam
Ultra Glossy Lip in Bestie (not pictured, I keep that one in my purse!)
I also got Mini Ultra Satin Lips in the shades Frick N' Frack, Prim, Dopey and Strip. Really excited to play around with these ones since they're not necessarily shades I would gravitate towards.

Eyes: 
I finally picked up some of their pressed eyeshadows which I've been very curious about since they launched. I got the shades:
Double Date (Metallic Lavender)
Pinky Promise (Metallic Wine)
Come and Get It (Duochrome Rose with Gold Shift)
I also picked up the Heavy Hitter palette which features the shades:
Full Zip (Matte Ivory)
Ringer (Metallic Champagne)
Side Tracked (Matte Terracotta with gold flecks)
Top Notch (Matte Terracotta Brown)
I restrained myself into only buying 3 Super Shock Shadows this time (which I currently am regretting, but I'm sure my wallet is relieved). I picked up the shades:
Porter (burgundy with gold glitter)
Static (deep satin burgundy)
White Rabbit (pink copper)
(Note: Porter and Static are being discontinued, so you can pick them up on discount right now before they run out!)
I also picked up one of their highlighters in 'Wisp' which I am EXTREMELY excited to try out. It is so stunning in swatches!

And thats everything! I will likely be swatching everything in the upcoming weeks, but please comment below which ones you'd like to see swatched first!

Happy Friday everyone!

MAY FAVOURITES!

Hi everyone! Long time no talk 😋😋 and happy June!
I'm back from my brief exam and study hiatus, and now that I've officially graduated I'm so excited to have more time to be writing on here about my monthly favourites! There aren't too many, since I didn't really try out too many new things, but I rediscovered a lot of old loves within my collection that I ended up using all month long.

Colourpop Super Shock Shadow in 'KathleenLights' 
Every single time I wear this eyeshadow, I will guaranteed receive compliments on it. It is hands down the most beautiful true gold shade that is just so flattering on the eyelids. I'm so obsessed with it.
Nyx Soft Matte Lip Cream in 'Prague' 
It's no secret that I'm a huge fan of Nyx's soft matte lip creams, so obviously I had to add to my collection. Prague is a super pretty deep mauvy pink colour and I'm so in love with it.
Milani Rose Blush in 'Romantic Rose'
This blush, besides being 1) super affordable and 2) so pretty, is seriously the most pigmented and flattering blush I've worn in a really long time. I'm so glad I picked this up because I've been using it every day since April and I just can't get enough.

Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in 'Opal'
I had forgotten just how much I loved this highlight until I started re-using it this past month. It's just so intense and just so GOOD. It applies so flawlessly on the high points of the face and is so eye catching without looking unnatural.
Anastasia Beverly Hills Single Shadow in 'Dusty Rose'
This single shadow for a while now has been my go-to eyeshadow to wear on my minimal makeup days. I just slap it on, all over the lid, or in the crease paired with any pink or purple toned shadows. It's a super flattering colour for my skin tone.
Lise Watier Rouge Gourmand Velours in 'Noble Nude' 
I'm so obsessed with the formula of these lipsticks. They are honestly unlike everything I've ever felt. They are the most matte lipsticks I've ever used, and literally feel like velvet when you put them on your lips. You definitely need to exfoliate your lips well before using them but it's so worth it.

Let me know what you loved this past month!

The BEST Lip Colours for Spring!

When it comes to seasonal makeup, my two favourites would have to be Spring and Autumn, As much as I love my vampy berry lips when the cooler months roll around, I love all the pretty colours I get to play around with in the spring time.

Here are the lipsticks that are pretty much always in my rotation all Spring long:
From Left to Right:

  • Wet N' Wild Liquid Catsuit Matte Liquid Lipstick in 'Nudist Peach' 
  • Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in 'Baci' 
  • Colourpop Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick in 'Instigator' 
  • Essence Lipstick in 'Coral Calling' 
  • Maybelline Colour Sensational Lipstick in 'Vibrant Mandarin' 
  • Nyx Lipstick in 'Vitamin' 
  • Nyx Lipstick in 'Blush' 
Let me know if you'd like lip swatches or entire makeup looks created with any of these! I'm so excited that it's finally spring!

Colourpop 'Weenie' Super Shock Shadow (SWATCH)

This eyeshadow is so stunning on the eyes, you really have to try it to understand what I mean. I think I might have worn it every day for a week all over my lids with just a darker brown buffed into the crease. It's just so gorgeous.
Colourpop's website describes this one as a "true rose gold" but it falls a bit more coppery on my skin tone I think. Its still such a pretty, satiny colour that looks even prettier when the light hits it. Definitely a must have if you're planning on ordering some shadows from Colourpop!

Colourpop 'KathleenLights' Super Shock Shadow Swatches

As promised, I'll be posting swatches of all the things I ordered from Colourpop all through this week. I had to post this one first though because, I mean, just look at it. Is that not the most gorgeous golden colour you've ever seen? I kind of just want to slather it all over my eyelids.
It applies super pigmented (one swipe is all you need) and the colour is honestly breathtaking. I own a lot of bronze, gold and neutral colours, but I feel as though I don't have a straight up pure gold colour like this, so I'm very excited to try it!

COLOURPOP HAUL!

 A couple of weeks ago, I made (believe it or not), my very first Colourpop order. I put off ordering from Colourpop since International shipping can be pretty pricey, but I couldn't put it off any longer so I finally decided to pick up some things.
 I wanted to try a little bit of everything I've heard a lot of hype around, so I picked up some of the Super Shock shadows, a matte liquid lipstick and a lippie stick. (Of course, with my luck, their pressed single shadows were released 2 days after I placed this order... so you know what my next order is going to be!)
 The shadows I picked up were Weenie, KathleenLights, Sequin and Eye Candy. The liquid lipstick is in the shade 'Instigator' and the lippie stick is in 'Topanga'.
 I put off ordering these for far too long, so I am incredibly excited to try them out and see what the hype is all about. They all look so incredibly pretty and they've got me so inspired to create gorgeous looks.
I'll be posting swatches of everything I ordered this week! Stay tuned ;)

Have a lovely week everyone!
