From Dollar Store to High End: 5 Glitters for Festival Season (or whenever, really)

Festival season is upon us!! For most of you around the world, that was quite a few months ago but for Canada, it started very recently. It’s my absolute favourite time of year because I can express myself through colourful outfits and makeup while dancing and headbanging to obnoxiously loud music. I dug through my makeup bag and found that I have glitter products from many different brands and price tiers. I hope that this article is helpful for anyone looking to add glitter to their collection without breaking the bank 🙂

Blue/Purple Smokey Look – Hooded Eyes

I was playing around with some colours today and the final look actually turned out pretty great! 😛 I have hooded eyes so I thought this might be a great tutorial (kind of?) for those with similar eyes. I’m still learning and can definitely improve, so any feedback is welcome. Please don’t mind my pores and skin texture 😓 I didn’t put on any face makeup while experimenting with this look besides concealer around my brows.

Reviews: My Primer Collection

Featuring Peter Thomas Roth, Make Up For Ever, and others. I’ve somehow gathered up a ton of primers (out of all makeup things?) so I thought that I should share my thoughts! For reference: I have oily/combo and sensitive skin so basically the more a primer can do, the better (mattify, blur pores, make a smooth canvas, etc.) 😃

Review/First Impressions: IT Cosmetics

Can you believe I got these 4 full size products for only $70 for Black Friday?? It was too good of a deal to miss out on and a great introduction to the brand. I’ve worn these products for a good amount of time now and in this post I offer my reviews with animated photos and swatches. All prices are in CAD.

Sephora 20% off Haul – Animated Swatches!

This is gonna be a big one! For those who don’t know, 2x a year (once in November, once in April) Sephora holds a 20% off sale for VIB and VIB Rouge members (15% off for Beauty Insider) across the whole entire store, no exceptions. I assume everyone went a little crazy like me so I’d like to share what I purchased with animated swatches (so cool right?), and give some mini reviews.

My BB Cushion Collection + Mini Reviews

I don’t always have time to sit down with a brush/sponge and blend in foundation in the morning. That, and sun protection, are why I love using BB cushions.  They’re cute, easy to use and portable since the cushion puff is included. Just like all products though, there are hits and misses. My collection isn’t big but there are some good/bad products here I’d like to review. Every cushion here is SPF 50+/PA+++ unless otherwise stated.

Products Not Worth the Money – Nov 2017

Most of the time, I buy things after reading ratings & reviews online (a term called “webrooming”) so it’s uncommon for me to not like something. But of course everyone is different, and there will always be products that work for some people, and don’t work for others. This is my first post about products that didn’t work for me. They don’t necessarily suck, but if I went back in time, I wouldn’t have bought any of these items.
