This mascara is a pretty good every day option for me. It lengthens my lashes, defines them and gives them a little bit of volume. I do think that it actually does give my lashes a bit of a 'fanned out' effect. It doesn't smudge, which is a definite plus, and doesn't have any weird kind of smell to it!

I got these nails in an influenster box for review, and I was really intrigued by them! I tried them out, and they are so easy to apply, and to remove. That being said they do not last very long if you are doing things like showering, or the dishes even if you follow the instructions and avoid water for 30 mins after applying. I love the ease of these though, and the fact that they did not damage my nails. I would for sure purchase these for an event and they do provide you with enough nails that if one falls off, you can replace it!

Here's a video on my youtube channel showing which designs I got and my first thoughts about them!

I love these lipsticks. You really can't beat them for the price! They are not drying, highly pigmented, and they really do last on your lips!

Here is a video that I posted on my youtube channel with swatches of the colours that I was personally drawn to! (Hint: One of them is a dupe for Candy Yum Yum!)

I received this product from influenster for review and I enjoyed the experience! For some reason the thrill of a sheet mask, and making myself look like a monster is exciting to me. I got the 'crushed artic cloud berries" glacial clay spa mask and it was really refreshing and cooling. I do not find sheet masks easy to use however, and I prefer clay masks from a tube.

Here is a demo/review I did on my youtube channel if you want more details!

I got these brushes as being part of RPM Makeup Academy's online course. They are great! They blend products really well, and are easy to use. My only complaint about them is that the dye comes out when you wash them which is kind of weird (mine are black bristled), and the handles of the brushes are wooden where I would prefer something a little bit more durable for washing.

Here is a review I did on my Royal & Langnickel brush set!

I am in love with these lip butters! They have so many shades available, and they all provide a great wash of colour for your lips. Some are more pigmented than others, but none of them are a waste of money. They are hydrating, easy to use and wear, and very affordable! I love them so much!

Lipstick - Maybelline New York - Color Sensational Vivids Lipcolor - Vibrant Mandarin

This lipstick is one of the most intense that I own! The colour is so vibrant, as the name vibrant mandarin would suggest. It's a great orange/red shade that can be applied full on for a dramatic look, or dabbed on for a more coral/red shade that is pretty for spring/summer. The formula of these lipsticks is great, and they are long lasting! I've got no complaints about this one.

Here is a tutorial that I did featuring this lipstick on my youtube channel if you'd like to see how crazy pigmented this product is!

I really like this mascara when I'm going for a bold, dramatic eye look. The top lash mascara is great for adding drama and it really does make my lashes look like they are false lashes. My boyfriend usually asks "are those real?" and when I say yes he replies "oh, did you use that fake lash mascara?" It's hilarious that he notices, but it means that the mascara really makes a difference! It can be a little bit hard to work with, and it is a drier formula that can tend to clump, but I still enjoy the effect it gives. The bottom lash mascara is great! The brush allows you to get your bottom lashes, and the formula does not clump at all. It never looks like too much on your lower lash line. The only down side about this product is that it dries up fast …Read more

Palettes - theBalm Cosmetics - Nude 'tude Eyeshadow Palette

I love this palette! The shades are highly pigmented, and the shadows are smooth and blend well! I would say the quality of this is about the same as urban decay. The darker shades are VERY pigmented, and a little bit goes a long way. The only complaint I have is that they are all shimmer/satin finish so there is not a lot of variety in that sense in the palette. However, it is still versatile and can be used for day/night looks.

Here is a tutorial I uploaded on youtube when I first started making videos, so you can see these shadows in action!

Palettes - NYX Professional Makeup - Butt Naked Eyes

This is a hit or miss product for me. I was SO excited to get it from hautelook because at that time, I had not tried anything from NYX. I think this palette would be great for beginners because it includes so much, for a great price. You get 15 eye shadows, 4 blushes, a bronzer, and 2 highlight shades. The quality of the shadows themselves are okay. Some of them can be e a little bit powdery, but they are easy to work with and blend. The pigmentation is also pretty good, but not on par with higher end palettes. I enjoy having this palette in my collection because I like the shade range it offers, but it is definitely not one of my favourites, or the best quality I own. The blushes are highly pigmented, as well as the bronzer so that is a plus!

Here is a video showing me …
