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 πŸ™‚

A Canadian Buys Colourpop For the First Time

It’s safe to say that Colourpop is one of the most popular affordable brands currently on the market. Their eCommerce-only strategy has been highly successful, and they have a talented group of affiliated influencers who proudly stand behind the brand. After their most recent round of hype, I finally caved and made my first purchase. Here’s what I hauled and what I think!

Blue/Purple Smokey Look – Hooded Eyes

I was playing around with some colours today and the final look actually turned out pretty great! πŸ˜› I have hooded eyes so I thought this might be a great tutorial (kind of?) for those with similar eyes.

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.

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.
