There is very little that gets me as excited as skincare infused makeup, so when the new Vichy Teint Ideal range landed in my mail box I was so eager to tear into it. I received five pieces from the line, including the Teint Ideal Fluid Foundation, Teint Ideal Cream Foundation, Teint Ideal Compact Powder, Teint Ideal Bronzer in Sunkissed […]
One of my earliest “beauty” memories is doing the 7th Heaven masks with my sister when I was very young. I remember sitting in her bedroom and smearing a peel-off mask all over my face. I definitely didn’t need it at the time, but it was such a fun bonding experience none-the-less. So when these […]
There is nothing quite so exciting for me as trying out a new Canadian cosmetics brand – especially if it’s colour cosmetics. I love skincare to bits, but there is something so much more fun about playing with colour! Today’s new brand is Maison Jacynthe, a French Canadian brand by Jacynthe René, an actress and producer from Quebec. […]
When I saw this mask was called The Magical Wonderfluff I imagined putting balls of cotton all over my face…but in mask form. Unfortunately it’s not quite as neat as that, but the results are much better! The Acure Magical Wonderfluff mask is an overnight treatment that features argan, chlorella and gardenia stem cells to moisturize and […]
Airplanes and I don’t get along. Being stuck in a metal tube hurtling through the sky is not exactly my idea of fun, but I recently had to do a bit of travelling for work. So I had to find some way to make myself more comfortable and reduce my flight anxiety, and Saje Wellness had […]
I enjoy finding new gems in the cosmetics world, so when I had the opportunity to try MyChelle Dermaceuticals I jumped on it. MyChelle is a cruelty-free green beauty brand founded in Colorado that prides itself in ethically sourced, high performance ingredients. Sounds great, right?
Holiday releases are already flooding the beauty world, so I’m a bit late to the party with the Joe Fresh Fall 2016 Collection. But if you haven’t read anything about these gorgeous fall beauty bits, get ready to have your socks blown off because they are awesome.
I had to do some travelling recently for work, so it only felt appropriate that I do a What’s In My Travel Makeup Bag? post.
At the end of summer, Shoppers Drug Mart marked down the essence Longlasting Lipstick section of the essence shelf, and I couldn’t resist picking up a couple. I’ve been on a serious lipstick kick the last few months (my lipstick storage is completely full now…) but I was so happy to add these two to my collection.
Every time a new type of beauty tool hits my radar I get two reactions: excitement and scepticism. The order of the two often varies, but they always occur together. I guess that’s one of the good things about being a blogger – I get to test out both my excitement and scepticism and tell […]
I'm a Hufflepuff who loves all animals (especially cats) and drinks a whole lot of coffee. This blog is primarily about beauty (makeup and skincare), but I am beginning a journey into cruelty-free, sustainable living. Follow along as I document my successes and failures along the way!
