March 2016 Favourites!

Hello beautiful people!
I hope you all had a wonderful Easter weekend and no one has pranked you too hard today!

It’s time for another monthly favourites post! I haven’t written one of these in ages, so I have quite a few beauty/skincare/random favourites to share.

I’ll start with skincare as I’ve really been having quite a difficult time with my skin this winter. I don’t know if it’s because of the weather, or that I’m getting older or what but it’s really been getting me down! I’ve had a lot of annoying breakouts, some random redness and lots of little dry patches, which makes all my foundations look awful on my skin. Finally in the passed couple of months I’ve found a few products that seem to helping the situation!

The Clinique take the day off cleansing balm ($36CAD) is what I’ve been using as step one in my skin care routine lately, and I’ve really been loving it (as you can see by the crater I’ve dug out of the middle). It’s the consistency of wax, but when you rub it in your palms, it kind of warms up and melts to turn into this really nourishing oil that melts away all your make up!
I like to massage this onto my skin for about a minute to make sure I’m really getting all that make up off, and then I’ll wet my hands and it kind of emulsifies into this lovely milk, which then cleanses the skin without stripping it at all. I love my micellar waters, but can find them to be a bit drying, so this has been working wonders for me as it doesn’t dry out my skin at all! a little goes a long way as well, so this tub should last me another 3 months or so!


Another skin care saviour I’ve been loving is the Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant ($74CAD). This is quite pricey, but may very well be the nicest thing in my skin care collection. As you can see from the photo (which looks slightly like drugs) it comes in a powder form, which you then add water too and create this lovely and gentle exfoliant that you can use every day. I’ve been using this at night after my cleansing balm to help get rid of any debris, dry skin or extra make up, and let me tell you my skin feels incredible! This is formulated with rice protein which helps to get rid of dead skin and promote cell turn over for a more radiant and smooth complexion!
This is also a bit of a 3-in-1 product, the girl at the store told me you can add a lot of water for a more gentle exfoliant to brighten the skin and gently cleanse, or you can use a little bit of water for a rougher more physical exfoliant 3 times a week, or you can add a little bit of water and leave it on as a 5 minute mini mask! If you ask me, I think for that many options it’s well worth the price.

Last but not least in my skin care favourites is the Kiehl’s Hydro-plumping re-texturizing skin serum concentrate ($60CAD). This serum literally feels like you’re rubbing water into your skin, it’s so light but so hydrating at the same time. Usually things that hydrate feel really thick and sticky on the skin, but this just sinks right in and gives my skin the drink of water it’s really been needing, and I’ve definitely noticed less dry spots on my face. This stuff is also meant to plump the skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, but I’ve only been using it about 2 weeks so I’ll have to see about that!

On to make up favourites!

This is a fairly new purchase for me, but I absolutely love it. The By Terry touch expert advanced ultra-radiance active concealer ($59CAD) in the shade 1 is the absolute perfect concealer for getting rid of dark circles. This is very expensive, but Toronto just got Saks Fifth Ave, and they had a By Terry counter and I just couldn’t resist (sorry not sorry). I got this kind of bisque shade because I wanted a little extra something to cover up my dark circles, and this literally makes them disappear – if I’m being honest, my under eye circles are not that bad, but this stuff just makes them non-existent and makes me feel super awake and fresh! It has similar packaging to the YSL Touche Eclat pen with the little pump on the bottom that forces the product up and into the brush, which I think is really classy and lovely. The product itself smells really fresh and clean, and blends into the skin like a dream! A little goes a long way with this stuff as well so you can get your moneys worth!

I wasn’t a huge fan of the first Tartelette palette, but when I saw the new Tartelette In Bloom palette ($54CAD) I absolutely had to have it! The shades in this are a mix of shimmer, glitter and mattes, with nice warm neutral shades. I was really feeling the matte shades in this palette throughout March, I’m not usually one to wear an all matte look, but the formulation of these shadows just blends like butter so they look really soft and lovely on the lid. If you’re looking for a new palette I would definitely suggest giving this baby try!

Last but not least is the Kat Von D everlasting liquid lipstick in the shade Bow n Arrow ($24CAD). I wore this non-stop in March, it’s just the perfect bold lip to transition into spring without being too red or berry toned. It dries down to this beautiful ashy, burnt rose colour which I absolutely adore! It lasts all day long, through eating and drinking, and it doesn’t dry out your lips at all! If you haven’t given her liquid lipsticks a try I would highly recommend any of the shades because the formula is spot on!

My final March favourite is actually a TV show that I literally binge watched through February and March because I just couldn’t get enough! Parks and Rec is probably one of the funniest TV shows I’ve watched in a long time, it stars Amy Poehler, Nick Offerman, Aubrey Plaza, Chris Pratt, Aziz Ansari and a bunch of other amazing actors/actresses who just work so well together. It’s about a group of people who work in the Parks Department in this tiny town in Indiana and it just catalogues their day to day activities, which sounds boring but is actually amazing! If you watched the office, or are a fan of any of the actors I mentioned I think you could get into Parks and Rec!

That’s it for now my loves!
Until next time,

Top 15 of 2015

Hello beautiful people! and Happy New Year! I cannot believe it’s 2016, 2015 seemed to absolutely fly by!
I hope you all had a lovely and safe holiday season, full of delicious food and family fun!

I figured to start off the new year I would share my top 15 beauty products of 2015, these are all things I reached for over and over again last year, and I’ll definitely continue to love them throughout 2016. Although, I am quite excited to see all the new products that this year will have to offer!

Some of these are products I’ve already raved about here on my blog, so I’ll just give you the short version of why I love them, because otherwise this post will be incredibly long!

DSCN2537
First up is a product I was pretty late to the party with – The Beauty Blender ($28.00 CAD) literally changed my whole beauty routine in 2015. This magical sponge blends foundation into your skin without allowing it to cake or bunch, it just applies your make up so flawlessly and naturally that it doesn’t look like you’re wearing anything! Foundations that didn’t sit well on my skin when I applied them with a brush went on like a dream with this little guy. If you haven’t tried this, you absolutely need to, it will change your life!

DSCN2495
Choosing an eye shadow palette was really difficult, but when I went through my collection this Stila Eyes are the Window palette in Soul ($59.00 CAD) really stood out to me. This Palette is beautiful with a mix of mattes and gorgeous shimmers, with just the right mix of cool and warm tones. The formulation blends like butter and feels like velvet, they wear all day long, and you can create any kind of look you want! This palette would suit so many different skin tones and eye colours that I think it would be a welcome addition to anyones collection.

DSCN2513DSCN2515
Becca x Jaclyn Hill Shimmering Skin Perfector in Champagne Pop ($46.00 CAD) was a highly talked about and popular product last year for very good reason. This is one of the most stunning highlighter’s I’ve ever used, but it’s definitely not for the person who wants a subtle shine to their cheekbones, because this baby is GLOWY. I like to use this on nights out, or when I want to feel really glam and sexy, but I also really like to use this as eye shadow! This is limited edition, so grab it if you can find it!

DSCN2525
I absolutely love this Full Lash Bloom mascara by CoverGirl ($8.00CAD). I reached for this every single day in 2015, over any high end mascara in my collection! This mascara volumizes and separates my lashes beautifully without flaking or transferring at all! Pick this up in your local drug store and give it a try because it is amazing!

DSCN2500
DSCN2535
NUDESTIX lip + cheek pencil in Blush ($28.00CAD) has been my purse lipstick all year long. This is the perfect nude for everyday wear, it adds just the right amount of colour to your lips to compliment any make up look. The formulation is super long lasting, and incredibly smooth and creamy. I got this one as a birthday gift, but it’s definitely inspired me to want to try out more from this line!

DSCN2496
The Living Proof PHD dry shampoo ($27.00 CAD full size) is literally the most incredible dry shampoo I’ve ever used. It actually cleans your hair and absorbs oil and odour, this can extend the life of your shampoo for an extra day or two. it doesn’t leave a film on your hair or scalp, and it doesn’t weigh down your hair at all. It’s a bit pricey, but to literally make my hair look freshly washed on the third day after I’ve shampooed is incredible. This is the small size which is $14.00 CAD, but I’ll definitely be picking up the full size.

DSCN2497
The Urban Decay Naked Skin foundation ($45.00 CAD) is something you all know I absolutely love. This has incredible coverage, it’s got more of a natural/dewy finish than a matte one which I absolutely love. It lasts all day long, and doesn’t cling to dry patches or bunch up on the skin. It’s got quite a watery formulation, which means one pump will cover your whole face no problem, especially if you apply it with a beauty blender! If you’re looking for a new foundation, I would definitely recommend this guy!

DSCN2493
This is a product that’s fairly new to me, but it still get’s added to my favourites because it’s that amazing! The Laura Mercier translucent loose setting powder ($46.00 CAD) sets make up without looking cakey or dry. This blurs imperfections and gives your skin a really natural flawlessness! The only downside is that loose powders are very hard to travel with, and very easy to knock off one’s vanity (yes, I’m speaking from experience) so be careful with this stuff!

DSCN2512
Again, this is a product I’ve gone on and on about, so I wont stay here too long. The Urban Decay Naked Skin concealer ($34.00 CAD) completely replaced my NARS radiant creamy concealer in terms of holy grails. This stuff doesn’t crease at all, it’s got a beautiful creamy consistency so it blends out flawlessly. I literally can’t say a single bad thing about this product! Go and try it – trust me.

DSCN2498
This is something I don’t think I’ve mentioned on my blog before, and it’s the only skin care item in my 2015 favourites. This is the Saje Skin Fitness balancing toner for combination skin ($19.95 CAD), it’s a spray on toner made of a combination of natural essential oils, so you can imagine how incredible this smells. I use it morning and night, and have really noticed an improvement in the texture and look of my skin, it’s helped to soften and brighten while decreasing the amount of oiliness in my T-zone. I know Saje isn’t available everywhere, but if you’re curious to try out some really great natural skin care product’s, I would suggest taking a look at their website!

DSCN2526DSCN2529
The Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze and Glow ($80.00 CAD) is definitely another holy grail product for me. This is a great duo for contour/highlight that I think would suit every skin tone. The contour shade is just muddy enough to add an incredible shadow under the cheekbones, and the light gold of the highlight shade just adds the most subtle and sexy glow to the cheeks. It’s definitely a luxury product – but if you’re looking to splurge I would definitely say this is worth the money.

DSCN2522
The Maybelline Brow Drama tinted brow gel ($10.00 CAD) is definitely hit or miss for some people, but I really like it. I find it helps to keep my brows in place, and defines the sparser and blonder hairs that you normally wouldn’t be able to see. This product doesn’t dry down crusty, and it lasts all day! The applicator is a bit weird at first, but you get used to it the more you use it.

DSCN2519DSCN2520
The Hourglass Ambient bronzer in the shade Luminous Bronze Light ($60.00 CAD) is the only bronzer I used in 2015. It’s the perfect shade to warm up the face without being to orange, and it has swirls of the regular ambient lighting powder in it which makes it look natural and pretty on the skin. Again, a bit of a pricier product, but for pale skin like mine it’s really hard to find a good bronzer, so this is worth the money to me!

DSCN2508DSCN2510
The Kat Von D Everlasting liquid lipstick in Lolita ($24.00 CAD) was my go-to stay in place lipstick all fall/winter. It’s the perfect deep pinky-brown shade that just adds real vampiness and sexiness to a look without wearing a dark purple or red lipstick. These have the most incredible formulation that just doesn’t budge at all once it dries down, they don’t ball up or flake off, and they don’t dry out your lips which is a huge bonus. I love to wear this on evenings out when I know I’m going to be doing a lot of drinking/eating – but with this baby I don’t need to worry because it will still be there!

DSCN2505DSCN2506
Last but not least is the NARS Audacious lipstick in the shade Anna ($39.00 CAD) This is another great lipstick for fall/winter because it’s a beautiful deep mauve shade which looks incredible with a really smoky eye. This formulation is creamy and smooth and definitely long lasting. Obviously not as long lasting as the Kat Von D one, but this is a good one to wear for a date night or night out with your girls. It’s incredibly moisturizing and feels really comfortable on the lips, I would definitely suggest picking one of these up!

That’s it for now my loves,
Sorry about my absence in December, but post’s should come more regularly now!
Until next time,
xoxo

August 2015 Favourites!

Hello beautiful people!
Happy Sunday! Let me know what you’ve been up to this weekend, I went to a small party on Friday and then spent the rest of weekend pretty much just lounging. On Saturday, Carmen and I went to see American Ultra, the new Kristin Stewart and Jesse Eisenberg movie. It was actually really funny, and had a lot of good action scenes, I feel like it’s the kind of movie that pretty much anyone could watch and partly enjoy.

August is coming to a close, and we’re moving in to September! Good luck to anyone going back to school in a couple of weeks!
I know that I should still be in summer mode, but I’m incredibly excited for fall. I can’t wait for the fashion, and the leaves changing colour, and all the yummy food & drinks, and let’s be real, the closer we are to fall, the closer we are to Christmas!

My first favourite is one of the new Rimmel Kate Moss lipsticks, from the nude line that just recently came out. I bought 2 of these, but number 42 is the absolute perfect nude, and really, how cute is this packaging?
DSCN2009 DSCN2012 DSCN2013

It’s the perfect balance of pink and beige, and it suits my skin tone so well. It’s only slightly paler than my natural lip colour, which I really like, especially as make up looks are transitioning into slightly smokier and darker looks for fall.
This lasts a good few hours without needing to be re-applied, it doesn’t have a completely matte of glossy finish, it just looks pretty and healthy on the lips. Of course it has the typical Kate Moss scent, sort of sweet and fruity, and these are really affordable, I think I found this on sale for $7.99!

Next up is a Burberry product from the Sephora VIB Rouge exclusive kit. Burberry just became available on Sephora.ca, so they brought out a small kit that I thought I’d try out, because I’ve never used burberry products before. This is just a sample size, but the full size is $44.
DSCN2019DSCN2022
This is called the Earthy Blush in no. 7 Light Glow, but it says it’s a contouring powder for face and eyes. I’ve been using this primarily to sculpt my cheekbones, but I think it would look great as a crease colour as well. This is a great muddy shade with slightly grey undertones, which are perfect for contouring the face. It’s completely matte, and has the most incredible formulation. It’s is super velvety and blendable, not to mention highly pigmented, so a tiny bit goes a long way. This powder is actually scented, which to be honest makes it feel a little bit more luxurious, it smells sort of sweet and a little bit floral as well. Burberry packaging is also just so sophisticated and lovely, if you’ve tried anything else from them, please leave some recommendations in the comments!

Monica actually bought me this next favourite for my birthday! The CND Vinylux nail polish in the colour Naked Naivete ($12).
DSCN2027
This is the prettiest pink colour for fingers and toes, I love shades like this because they’re so sexy and classy. These polishes have incredible wear time! I work with my hands, and this lasted a week without a single chip! the formulation is really opaque, and doesn’t go on streaky or anything like that. I will definitely be picking up a few more shades!

Next up is a mask I’ve heard great things about, The new Origins Original Skin retexturing mask ($30)
(This is just a sample size, but I’ll definitely be purchasing the full size)
DSCN2024
I’ve really been loving this, it’s supposed to deep clean the skin, while refining it’s texture and keeping it radiant. I’ve used this about 4 times and I absolutely noticed a difference in my skin. It definitely deep cleans, because once this dries down, it actually has little pieces of jojoba beads to exfoliate the skin as you wash it off, so it leaves your skin feeling super duper clean. After you wash it off, your face does look more glowing and healthy, because this tingles slightly which increases blood flow to the face. As for the texture of my skin, it did feel softer with the help of the exfoliation, but it took 2 or 3 uses for me to notice the more congested and uneven areas of my skin start to disappear. I use this twice a week, but if you have dry skin I would suggest only using it once. I would definitely recommend giving this a shot, you can get this deluxe sample with a Sephora code, which I think is Maskmini.

Last is the Kat Von D everlasting liquid lipstick in the shade A-go-go ($24)
DSCN2030DSCN2032
This was definitely a purchase that was slightly out of my comfort zone, but when I tried this on in Sephora, I fell absolutely in love. This a very bright orange-red shade that looks gorgeous with pale skin and a simple eye look. Even though I felt slightly self-conscious the first time I wore this out, I got so many compliments that I want to wear it all the time. It’s a great bold alternative to the classic red or berry shade that I’m used to wearing, not to mention that this formulation literally lasts all night long. I wore this out on Friday night, from 9pm to around 2am and it didn’t budge, I was eating and everything. This stuff dries down like concrete on your lips, but it’s incredibly easy to remove, just a bit of cleansing water on a cotton pad and you’re in business. I’ll definitely be picking up some more of these babies!

That’s it for now my loves!
Until next time,

November Favourites!

Hello beautiful people!
I hope you’re all getting as amped up for the Christmas season as I am! Oh and happy Thanksgiving weekend to all my American readers out there. Hopefully if you’ve been taking advantage of the black Friday sales you’re being super safe! And also getting some great deals!

This month I threw a few none beauty favourites in just to make it a little whimsical and also I’ve just really been loving these particular things like no bodies business! But I’ll start with the beauty because it’s the most fun.

First off is the NARS blush in the shade Almeria ($35) which is part of their holiday collection. Can we just take a second to talk about how freaking gorgeous their holiday packaging is!? I’m in love.
DSCN0921
I’m a massive fan of NARS as a brand in general but there’s something about their blushes that just makes my heart race and this one had to come home with me. It’s a beautiful sort of rusty pink colour with a slightly berry tone in it as well, there’s a tiny hint of shimmer in there which adds the most subtle and natural glow to your cheeks which is perfect for this time of year. I have not stopped wearing this because I love how it makes my skin look, but I think its limited edition which means it much be cherished!
DSCN0922DSCN0923

Next is the Kat Von D studded Kiss lipstick in the shade lovecraft ($26) The packaging on this is also super cute!
DSCN0918
I’m sure you’ve heard other bloggers/YouTubers talking about this lipstick. It’s a really gorgeous dusty rose colour with a slight brown tint as well, this colour is very “Kylie Jenner” esque which I know is super on trend at the moment. I like this colour for everyday because it adds a little something to your look without being a full on bold lip, and the formulation is nice and creamy. All in all I’ve been loving this baby, it also smells like vanilla which is my all-time favourite scent!
DSCN0916DSCN0917

Last beauty favourite is the Flower Beauty About Face foundation ($13.50) I recently did a post on this so I won’t go into too much detail, but I’ve really been enjoying this foundation throughout November. It’s got good coverage, it’s not totally matte and it’s not full on dewy; it just adds a nice glow to the skin. If you’re looking for a new drugstore foundation I would definitely try this one out, it’s exclusively at Walmart!
DSCN0924

Onto the-none beauty faves!
First is the Bath and Body Works Frosted Cranberry candle. This is what I consider a transition candle, you don’t want to start burning those real christmasy candles too early, and this one for me is just christmasy enough without singing carols if that makes any sense! It smells like you’d expect it to, a nice cranberry scent with a little bit of sweetness too, not overpowering and really pleasant. Go give it a sniff!
DSCN0926

Every single time I’ve been near a David’s Tea I’ve had to go in and order an Organic Vanilla Chai iced tea latte, they’re so dang good! The Vanilla adds a tiny bit of sweetness which cuts on the spiciness of the chai, it’s honestly just divine! I asked Carmen to buy me some of the tea for Christmas so I can make them at home!
chai

Last but definitely not least is the TV show The 100! My friend Lisha suggested this to me and I was hooked from the very first episode! It’s on Netflix and there’s 1 full season and the second season gets a new episode added once a week, so pace yourself if you’re going to get into it! I don’t want to give too much away, but basically it’s about these 100 prisoners who get sent back to earth from space after 97 years on “the Arc” which is their space station. The planet got nuked so people couldn’t live on it, but the 100 prisoners who get sent back are all under 18, and they have to survive all on their own to make sure earth is still habitable! I may not be explaining this very well, but if you love the hunger games and divergent you will love this show! It’s awesome.
100

That’s it for November’s favourites, but don’t forget that Blogmas here on Laauraborealis starts on Monday! If you didn’t read my last post, basically I’m going to be blogging every day until Christmas just letting you know what I’m getting up to! Also I’ve challenged myself to watch a Christmas movie a day during blogmas as well!

You guys are the best!
Until next time,
xoxo

**Just a little disclaimer – The pictures of the tea and “The 100” are from google, all the other pictures I took myself.

Sephora.ca Haul!

Hello beautiful people!
Happy Friday! Hopefully you all have sweet plans for the weekend, whether you live in Toronto and are going to the Ex or, if you live somewhere else and are just staying home to relax – I hope it’s wonderful.

A couple of weeks ago I placed an order on Sephora.ca because there were a few things I wanted to try out and I got an e-mail saying it was 4x the points for VIB Rouges, so to get even more point’s I asked my mom if she needed anything and we ended up spending over 300 dollars which got me around 1200 points! woohoo!
So Monday when I woke up with my swollen face and dragged myself out of bed, I was so excited to see a little brown box waiting for me! I didn’t include my mom’s stuff in this haul as it’s all her skin care and not all that exciting haha

First thing I wanted to pick up was the Diorshow Iconic Overcurl mascara. I used to use the original diorshow which I loved, but it just got too expensive so I switched to less expensive ones. Lately all my mascara’s had been letting me down so I thought I’d try this one out even though it’s a little pricey ($35). I’ve used it 3 or 4 times and I’m still not sure how I feel about it, the formulation is great! It doesn’t really flake or transfer under the eyes which is great especially If you’re wearing it all day, and I do find that this really holds a curl, my lashes are definitely not dropping throughout the day. I’m just not sure I LOVE the way it makes my lashes actually look. It’s quite a clumpy formulation, and makes them a little bit crispy almost which is I guess how they hold their curl so well, but I’m not in love with the way my lashes look once I’ve put this on. I’m going to keep trying it, and hopefully I won’t have to return it, I’ll keep you guys posted, let me know if you use this and what you think or if there’s some trick to it.

This next product I was super stoked about because I’m already a die-hard fan of the original Kat Von D tattoo liner in trooper, she just brought out a new liquid liner called the ink liner so of course I had to pick it up ($23). This liner is different from the tattoo liner because it’s a felt tip as opposed to a brush tip, I honestly am not a huge fan of felt tip liners and I did find this one a little bit hard to work with at first but the formulation is just incredible. It’s a really intense black and creates a bolder line than the tattoo liner which has a finer brush allowing you to build your cat eye. I’m curious to see how fast it dries out in comparison to her other one and to see if the felt tip fray’s at all, I guess we’ll see. All in all I’m really impressed with this liner I think I just need a little more practice with the felt tip but I think her tattoo liner is still going to stay my holy grail liquid liner.

DSCN0352

The last thing I actually purchased was this St. Tropez self tan starter kit. Now I have never self tanned, ever and I was very nervous to buy this product but for $32 I figured I’d give it a try. I’ve always wanted to self-tan but because I’m so pale I was nervous I would turn out orange no matter what product I used, but I have been assured that the St. Tropez products are really good so hopefully it all goes alright. The kit includes a mit, and travel sized of the tan enhancing body polish, tanning mousse, and tan enhancing body lotion. I haven’t used this yet but I’m going to get the courage up in a week or two and get Amber to help me as she’s done it before. If you guys have any tips please let me know in the comments!
DSCN0347

Now when you order from Sephora online you get to choose 3 samples that they’ll send to you, the samples the day I ordered weren’t great but they did have the new glam glow thirstymud (the blue one) which I had been wanting to try so I got that one, a dr. brandt self-adjusting bb cream that I’ll probably give my mom because I’m always too pale for self-adjusting product’s. last but not lease I got a jack black double duty face moisturizer which I’ll likely give to my brother in-law.
DSCN0343

I also found a code online which allowed me to get a mini manicure kit for free, it came with a sample of the Sephora formula x cuticle erasing cream and cuticle oil which I’m excited to try out although I love my OPI cuticle oil. It also came with two different types of nail polish removing wipes, the Josie Maran bear naked nail wipes which smell like grapefruit and the butter London scrubbers pad, I think these will be kept in the make up bag I keep in my purse because you never know when you need an emergency fix. Finally it came with this tiny little sample of the L’occitane dry skin hand cream which is also going straight into my purse because it’s just so cute and little and a girl can never have too much lotion.
DSCN0344

Last thing before you check out is they ask if you want to spend any of your beauty insider points, normally I’ll skip this step or pick up the odd 100 point perk but this time I has like 2000 points and I figured I’d spend some since I’m getting 4x the points for the purchase and I’d just get them back anyhow. So I picked this Marc Jacobs highliner gel eye crayon in the colour brownout, at first I was super excited about this but once I swatched it I realised there are pretty big glitter particles in it so I wouldn’t be using it to line the line or define the lash line at all. The formulation is gorgeous though, super creamy and really easily blended and it stays in place, I found it hard to remove the swatch from my hand with a wipe. I will definitely use this as a base for a smokey eye, or even by itself as a smokey eye because the colour is pretty it’s just the glitter that threw me off.
DSCN0345DSCN0346

For 500 points I got this Benefit “hotrageous hits” which is pretty much just a sample pack of 5 of their best sellers, most of which I already have. I really wanted this because there’s a sample size of Hoola the matte bronzer which I’ve really been wanting to try and am super stoked to use.
DSCN0353
DSCN0354

That’s everything I got in my Sephora.ca haul! Let me know if you guys would like to see more posts like this! And don’t forget to hit all the good buttons!
Have a fantastic weekend, you guys are the best!
Until next time,
