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 animatedΒ 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.Β  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.

USA Haul: Ulta, Sephora, Target!

This past Halloween weekend, I flew to SoCal to attend a music festival (THE BEST WEEKEND OF MY LIFE… I may just write a full post on it) and do some touristy stuff. Of course, one of the most exciting parts of my trip was having the chance to shop for beauty south of the border. Most of these products aren’t available in Canadian stores so I had to pick them up!

My Ipsy Glam Bag: September 2017

I recently re-subbed to Ipsy. For those who don’t know, Ipsy is a monthly subscription box that sends you sample and full size beauty products each month, tailored to your preferences (or so they claim). It costs about $20 per month including shipping to Canada and is usually a great deal. This is what I got this month!

My Experience at the Glossier Toronto Pop-up Shop

I lined up on the day it opened to have a peek inside and finally try some Glossier products. The buzz around this brand has been unreal so I had to check it out, and I wasn’t disappointed. Keep reading if you want to hear my thoughts, what I bought, and why I didn’t end up buying any of their super serums.

These 4 Products Will Last 12+ Hours On Your Face

I’ve come home from parties and events with my eye makeup still looking great. I’ve been rained on at festivals with my whole face still intact (including glitter tears!), while I saw other girls’ eyeliner dripping down their faces. My secret is using these staple items, which I would replace first if all of my makeup burned in a fire. They’re all very well-known and highly raved about for good reasons. Keep reading if you want to see photos of me putting them all to the test!
