I <3 Dark Lipstick 

I love dark lip stick lately. It makes me feel powerful and in charge of how I want to look and present myself. It’s fun and bold because it requires a bit of courage to wear in public.  What’s your fav dark lip shade?  Advertisements beautycosmetics

Topbox – May 2017 Edition

Honestly, I was kind of disappointed in May’s Topbox. Two of the samples were super tiny and the Colgate Optic White toothbrush thing they threw in as an extra expires in June. This Superstart sample from Elizabeth Arden had only a squirt of product! I’ll save this Black Magic mascara from Eyeko for night adventures…

Racinne Delicare Perfection

I received this Racinne DelicareΒ Perfection mask box from a swag bag Nash got me from work. I’ve never heard of the brand but upon research, it’s another Korean skincare brand. I’m not Korean but they always have the nicest skin, so I’m always curious about their products. These masks are primarily for dry skin. It…

nomakenolife- April 2017

I am obsessed with Asian products lately so I couldn’t resist trying a subscription of Japanese box nomakenolife. This month I received a box of 5 full sized must-have skin care products. This Shiseido Senka Perfect Whip face wash I use daily. It’s gentle and a little bit turns into a soft lather. The Derizum…

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…
