Colourpop Order + Review

So McKenna and my roommate and I made a Colourpop order recently and yesterday it came in the mail. I ordered a lip liner, a lipstick and a blush. I already have a couple of their lipsticks (or lippie stix as they call them) and I really like them. This is the first time I've ordered myself, or ordered to my house at least. I was pleasantly surprised by the adorable packaging and the personalized card with joke. It was also full of foam to keep all the makeup safe which was great. I got the…

Sephora Birthday Gift 2015

I recently went into Sephora to pick up my birthday gift. I've been excited to get this gift since my sister picked up hers in January. And for good reason! This set contains two NARS lip pencils, a Velvet Matte in Cruella, my favourite red ever and a Satin in Rikugien, which Sephora describes as a "rose pink", but I feel like leans more into neutral territory. I already have Cruella but I love it so much that I'm happy to have a backup. Overall I'm super jazzed about this gift and I can't…

Review: Kat Von D Studded Kiss Lipstick in Poe

When I saw this lipstick, I knew I had to have it. Sadly when I went to go get it, it was sold out. And that kept happening, again and again. I usually don't talk to Sephora employees, but this time I figured it was worth it. So I ended up getting on the waiting list, and last week I got the call and me and my girlfriend headed out to the mall. (beginning of the day! aka bus #1) I got around to trying it today and I'm smitten. The colour is so deep and pigmented. The smell is similar to MAC…

Review: MAC Rocky Horror Crazed Imagination Blush

A few weeks ago I found out a couple of things in quick succession. First was that the MAC Rocky Horror Collection that I had been counting down the days for was just in stores, not at counters. The second was that the mall across town was getting a MAC store sometime this fall. I talked to one of the girls at the MAC counter at The Bay in that same mall and she told me that they were supposed to open the same day as the collection was due out, but that they had already postponed the opening…

Melt Space Cake

I’ve been on the Melt Cosmetics mailing list for about a year. Every time I got an email from them, I read it anxiously, hoping, wishing, dreaming, of one thing: a Space Cake restock notification. From the moment I heard of this shade, I knew I needed it. Everything about it spoke to me, from the beautiful mid toned cool grey colour to the sci-fi-esque name. So obviously the moment I got the email I had to buy it. When I checked my tracking and saw it was coming, I anxiously sat in the…

Fall 2015 Lookbook

Lately I've been trying to get out of a rut. Part of this process has been trying to dress really nicely whenever I leave the house. Another part has been asking my friend Mathuri to take OOTD pictures of me whenever we hang out. So I figured I should put them to use and make a little belated fall lookbook. So let's get started! This outfit was supposed to be very different. But then I spilled something on my other shirt and the bow tie I misguidedly tried to make in under an hour with no…

Nails and Sephora Sales

On Friday I spent the day with Lauren and McKenna, it was a four part adventure: manicures, birthday dinner, makeup swap, and Sephora sale. My post on the swap is coming later this week. I haven't gotten my nails done very many times, this was actually my third ever manicure. The venue was Polish'd Nail Bar which is located in the PATH in downtown Toronto. Due to it's location their clientele is mainly business people on their way to and from work. The experience is tailored to this, with a…

FOTD: Sunset Lips and Cheeks

Last year, the trend was ombre hair, but this year, ombre is all about makeup. I've been seeing ombre lips all over instagram and tumblr, and yesterday I decided to give the look a shot myself. I wasn't satisfied with a simple two toned lip, I also decided to go for a similar cheek look. The idea here is that it mimics the various stages of sunset, from orange and pink to pink and purple. I went with a horizontal colour transition rather than a vertical one because I find it wears better…

elf Small Stippling Brush Review

Recently I purchased a blush from Colourpop and I wanted to try it out with a few different brushes. Lauren, from Lipstick + Lacquer suggested I try a stippling brush from elf. Since Target Canada is nearing the end of its run, they no longer have much elf stock available. So instead I stopped by my local Superstore when I was in the neighbourhood and picked this up. This brush gave me a bit of a different look with the blush. I felt like I had more control than with my Real Techniques…

March Favourites

H&M Hexagon Pendant: I love hexagons. They're my favourite shape, maybe because they remind me so much of bees. So when I saw this necklace at H&M back in December, I had to pick it up. Over the winter it didn't seem to match with all my heavy scarves, but now that it's been warming up I've been wearing it more and more. Bobo Academy "gay!"

How To: Style Printed Culottes

I recently bought a really cute pair of shorts from Forever 21+. After I bought them I started seeing shorts like them all over the place. This type of shorts are called culottes. The style dates back to middle ages, when they were worn by male nobility. In slightly more recent times they were worn by women for horseback riding, and now they're back in style for a less utilitarian purpose. These particular shorts are no longer available but cute printed culottes are available in many places…

Review: Pixi Powders

I've been eyeing the Pixi shelf ever since Target came to Canada. The branding, the packaging, the products, all spoke to me. The prices however, did not. So now since Target Canada is closing it's doors, and all beauty products are 40% off, I decided to pick up a couple of things. After missing out on the MAC Cinderella Beauty Powder, I've been looking into a bunch of finishing powders. There have been a lot that have piqued my interest, but most of them are a little on the expensive side…

Spring Shopping Haul

Today I went shopping with my friend Robyn. I only picked up a few things, but I got so many samples that I figured this was a haul big enough to merit sharing. Forever 21 Lace Top: I just finished sewing a 3/4 circle skirt last night, and I needed something to go with it. It's midi length and pink, so I wanted something dainty and soft, and this fits the bill perfectly. Elizabeth and James Nirvana Black (and White): I've mentioned here a couple of times that I was looking for a new perfume…

Get The Look: Jupiter Ascending

So last night Jupiter Ascending. I absolutely loved the film (for rather than in spite of it's sillyness) and one of the things that stuck out to me the most was Jupiter's makeup. It was literally flawless in every scene. The most impressive look in the movie is her wedding look. From the impressive head piece to the gorgeous dress to—of course her makeup. And being a beauty blogger, my first instinct was to recreate the look ASAP. I may not have the dress or the headpiece (I did try…

6 Colours for Spring: Lips + Nails

I know spring isn't technically here yet, but it's getting to that part of winter where we're all dying for a little warm weather. I'm ready to switch out my big winter coat for my leather jacket any day now, but with the current forecast, it might be a few more weeks. But just because the weather outside is still frightful, doesn't mean you're makeup can't be delightful. Here are some shades to get you into that springtime mood.

Review: CoverGirl Colorlicious Lip Gloss in Craving Cranberries

I have a lot of bad habits. One of them is rewarding myself for menial tasks. So when I stopped at Wal-mart to buy toilet paper, I decided to treat myself. I'm not really a lip gloss person, but I'm a big fan of dark red lips, and these are new, so I grabbed one on a whim. (left: one swipe right: four swipes) The colour is very sheer, slightly buildable, and surprisingly not very glossy. It also has a slight iridescent shimmer. The sign claimed "rich true-to-tube color", so I assumed the…
