Benefit #GetRealLips

  I got this free Benefit “They’re Real Double the Lip” liner and lipstick for entering some form on their site a few weeks ago. It’s an interesting lipstick with an embedded liner. The shade I received was pink thrills, a nice pink shade, lighter than my lips. It claims to be long-wear for 8…

Easter Long Weekend!

I don’t really celebrate Easter unless you count buying discount chocolate when it’s over. I’m just happy I have an extra day of the weekend to unwind (and play my Nintendo Switch). I also get to experiment with more fun looks on my days off. Here is one I liked from last weekend: Life in…

Tarte Make Believe in Yourself Palette

As soon as I first laid eyes on this Tarte palette, I was in love! Even the packaging is so pretty. It almost looks like a locket from Sailor Moon or something. The palette colours are so shimmery and metallic. It’s magical. These were super quick swatches using my finger and avoiding wasting too much…

Pixi Glow Tonic

I’ve heard a lot of people in make-up circles rave about the Pixi Glow Tonic, so I just had to try it myself. Plus, I didn’t currently have any toner in my routine. It’s a little expensive, perhaps because of all the buzz. I bought the bigger bottle which cost almost $40. It has glycolic…

Nature Republic Aloe Gel

My skin gets dry a lot when it’s cold. I have a lot of serums and moisturizers for my face, but I wanted something more natural so I got this 92% Aloe Vera Gel from Nature Republic. The product itself is a super clear gel. When you apply it to your skin it might seem…

SNP Panda Brightening Mask

These masks from SNP actually have animal prints on them. The panda ones for brightening. Note: the original packaging says “Whitening”, but in reality it is I think just a poor translation and does not actually whiten skin. What they usually mean is brightening. The mask was hilarious on my face! It was also dripping…

Dollar Shave Club

I’m now a member of Dollar Shave Club because I was just too lazy to go buy razors and I ran out. It’s super affordable too. The prices start from $3.50/month to $9.50/month depending on the type of razors you choose. If you’re not so hairy you can sign up to receive packages every two months.…

NYX Butt “Naked” Pallet

I had a gift card to NYX so I picked up this pallet from NYX. It has 15 beautiful neutral eyeshadow colours that are appropriate for work. It’s funny because I have probably like 300 eyeshadows, but most of them are way too dramatic to wear in the workplace. I like these colours because they’re…

Essence I <3 Stage Eyeshadow Base

I love the Urban Decay eyeshadow primer, but it’s too expensive to use every day. I can’t believe Essence sells one for only $3! Quality-wise, it makes eyeshadow colours look more vivid and lasts longer than it would without a primer. I also use it as a lip primer for the darker colours. $3 is…

Essence: How to Make Brows Wow

I can’t believe how cheap Essence line up of make up is. This brow set was only $9.99. Though I didn’t need it, it came with brow powder for all types of brows! Honestly, I’ll only use the dark and “light it up” shade, but it still cost less than any premium brow powder at…
