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…

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…

Sephora Birthday Gift 2017

My birthday is coming up so couldn’t resist ordering some stuff from Sephora so I could get my birthday gift. I thought this year’s choices were pretty cool. I chose the Tarte set that came with a nude lip gloss and blush. beautycosmeticsmake upsephora gift

Boxing Day Sephora Haul

For Boxing Day, I ordered two lip sets (Urban Decay’s Vice & Smashbox’s Light It Up) at Sephora and got a bunch of free stuff. I got a sample NARS Lip pencil, BROWFOOD and more. Smashbox’s set came with 5 glittery lip glosses and a container that I can use for storage (after I took…

The Face Shop Haul

I was really excited to find out that The Face Shop now has a downtown location at the Eaton’s Centre. Previously, I would have to go to Pacific Mall to obtain any Asian beauty products. Winter really dries out my hands so I purchased this Olive & Argan oil hand cream. A little goes a…

Birchbox: May 2015 Edition

The theme of this month’s beautiful Birchbox is Cupcakes and Cashmere, inspired by an Emily Schuman book. The box also focuses on organic products that can transform your moods. Speaking of mood enhancing, there was a soap from Not Soap Radio that has “pheramone activation”. I used it in a bubble bath and it smells delightfully like berries.…
