Eye Shadow -Morphe -35W (Warm) Eyeshadow Palette

Wonderful palette.. Great pigmentation, buttery shades, great shade choices of warms, mattes, satins and frosts... Lots of looks can be created with no fallout, and long wearing with primer. Great sale deal at Ulta for $23, and definitely worth the regular $35 retail price.

******There are at least 15 different Morphe palettes, so to the reviewer who reviewed a totally different matte palette that you didn't like, and you said isn't this one on this review, girl! lol that doesn't make any sense to the overall score for THIS palette, and you completely brought down the score of all 4's & 5's, when you aren't even talking about THIS palette LOL😜 ..your review belongs over on Morphe Matte Palette 35N, which by the way is regularly sold out on every site ...that's like writing a negative review for Maybelline Great Lash Mascara on the page for Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara ?? Lol..haha, I just hate when a fantastic product gets brought down in score by incorrect info..Definitely recommend this palette.


Skincare - Body -Unlisted Brand -Moa The Green Balm

This product is a real skin savior. It is multi-purpose and works equally well as a cleansing balm, a lip balm, a cut/scratch/bruise ointment and as a night cream. It has tremendously improved the state of my dry and redness prone skin. Great as an eye cream as well and seems to condition the lashes too. The smell is herbal, the texture is grainy but melts when you massage it on. No nasty ingredients and reasonably priced as well. Have repurchased numerous times and will continue as long as they keep selling it.


Lip Gloss -Wet 'n' Wild -MegaSlicks in #576A Rose Gold

This has been my favorite lipgloss for years. I love this color so much! It's appropriately named because it is a pinkish golden shade with a frosty finish (not over the top frost though). It's the perfect everyday shade, and goes with everything I wear. I feel like this makes my lips look fuller. My 2nd favorite shade would be Bronze Berry, which is similar to Rose Gold but deeper toned. I like that the formula is thick, without being overly sticky, and the wear time is decent. The slim size makes it perfect for purses or slipping into the pocket of my jeans. The $2 pricepoint makes it an all around win. Will repurchase!

Highlighters -Makeup Revolution -Liquid Highlighter

I have this in the shade Starlight, it's a gorgeous pearly shade. These are super high quality for only $9, they are nearly identical to Custom fx drops. I'm N25, neutral, with combo skin, and this highlighter gives my face such an ethereal glow/sheen, looks very natural.. There are tons of shades that range from icy silverish, gold, to holographic shades, if you're into that.. You get a ton of product for $9 @Ulta.. Definitely recommend.

Shampoo -LUSH -Daddyo shampoo

I've been using this shampoo on and off for years. I do have (bottle) blonde hair (and a fair few greys too, sob) but that's not what I buy it for. I buy this, and I love Juicy because they both seem to make a good clarifying shampoo for me. Every Christmas I treat myself to a small bottle of each (would have to rob a bank to buy the larger ones anyway!) and they almost last the year as I only use them to get rid of build-up. They would be far too harsh to use on a daily basis anyway as they strip the hair.
I've never noticed my hair being less brassy, nor has it stained it purple or pink like others say! I do love the smell of this shampoo, just like the kids sweets. Yum :-)

Misc Beauty Tools -Shu Uemura -Eyelash Curler

on 12/16/2017 5:58:00 PM

At first, I was hesitant to spend $25 CAD on an eyelash curler (at Japanese airports this only costs 1300 yen, which around $15 CAD by the way) but when I tried this all my hesitations went out the window. I have almond shaped eyes with medium to long lashes and these curl the lashes very well - even the hard to reach outer lashes! Since they fit my eye shape, it's very rare that this eyelash curler ever pinches my eyelids. I love the great tension of this eyelash curler, you don't have to pinch hard every time to get a nice curl. One downside to this product is that the opening doesn't open very wide so if you have thick lashes I would consider something else.

Overall, this is a staple product in my collection and I will definitely keep repurchasing this unless I find something better.

Highlighters -BeneFit Cosmetics -Watt's Up!

This is definitely one of my favourite highlighters. Even though I have combination leaning oily skin, I am always drawn to cream highlights and I find that this product is not overly oily or slippy at all, just creamy enough to blend nicely. My skin is also acne-prone and textured, but this doesn't exaggerate any of that at all (compared to the L.M. Matte Baked Highlight) which is such a blessing. On my face, this lasts around 8 hours and I usually wear it on top of clean, moisturized skin with no foundation or primer.

For reference, I am approximately M.A.C. NC25/C30 and this is the most natural highlighter I've tried so far (in terms of colour and shine intensity) - when sheered out it blends in completely with my skin, leaving behind a faint sheen and microfine shimmer. Sometimes I find this can be almost too natural when you blend it in - you don't really notice this highlight unless the light hits it at just the right angle. This is for sure less shimmery/sparkly compared to the Marc Jacobs Glow Stick Glistening Illuminator or the Laura Mercier Matte Radiance Baked Powder Compact in Highlight 01.

The packaging is adorable, sturdy and a portable size. However, I feel like Benefit could've gotten rid of the practically useless sponge and used that space to hold more product.

Overall this is a well-rounded product that deserves all the hype it's been getting. I definitely see why this highlighter is a staple product for so many people.

Palettes -Tarte -Clay Play Face Shaping Palette

As most of the recent reviews, I also got this half off for like $23 @ Ulta, pretty much a no brainer purchase! The shades are buttery, no fallout(slight kick up), great pigmentation, and a definite steal at $23... I would probably repurchase at full retail, but I have enough eyeshadow for 20 lifetimes, so I'm good lol... Definitely recommend.

Highlighters -Laura Mercier -Matte Radiance Baked Powder Highlighter

on 12/16/2017 5:18:00 PM

On Sephora, this Highlight 01 is described as a “golden nude” but on my warm skin tone (approximately M.A.C. NC25/C30), I would say this is more of a beige leaning pink. It is still very natural if I keep it sheer, but if I really build it up then the pink starts getting noticeable. For your reference I rarely ever wear foundation, so I normally use this on top of clean, moisturized skin.

If you are after that “glowing from within, healthy, radiant skin” look then this is great for that. This product is very finely milled, quite powdery and because of that, the inside of the compact tends to get dirty looking really quickly. It has minimal, fine shimmer that can only be seen up close. The lasting power is pretty good (around 6 hours on my combination leaning oily skin). At the end of the day, I tend to find stray sparkles on areas of my face where I did not put any highlight so there is definitely some migration happening.

Some downsides to this product: it can emphasize texture (acne or dryness) when really built up, and the packaging is quite bulky. It takes up substantial space in my travel makeup bag.

Overall, this highlighter is a great product to have in your makeup collection but it is not something spectacular that you NEED to have (in my opinion).

Blush -Tarte -Bling It On Amazonian Clay Blush Palette

I have more blush than I could use in 20 lifetimes, but I just couldn't resist this gorgeous packaging, and the nice choice of shades. I've had this for most of the year, and I really need to give it more love, cause these shades are gorgeous. I find myself reaching for so many quick/easy singles from TheBalm, and I put a lot of my blush palettes on the back burner when I'm rushed. I love the luxe case this comes in, it's a show stopper.. Aside from how pretty it is, the shades all have great pigmentation and lasting power. Definitely recommend.
