Tarte Shape Tape Review

Oh the Tarte Shape Tape. This was an iconic concealer many moons ago. Jamie Paige, Allana Davison, Samantha Ravendhal. All of these iconic YouTubers used this concealer. This for some reason was such a blogger favourite. I never got the chance to try this until this year and I can’t say I understand the hype.  First let’s start with my current love – think … Read More Tarte Shape Tape Review

Favourite Nude Lipsticks

I was going through my old blog posts and trying to see what I could revive or update in terms of a blog post. I found my old, favourite nude lipstick blog post and realized that I don’t have any of those left anymore in my collection and felt the need to create a new post for 2020.  Fenty Glazed. This is one of … Read More Favourite Nude Lipsticks

Sephora Holiday Sale Recommendations and what’s in my cart

This format is totally inspired by Amanda GlowGetter, one of my favourite blogs and internet friends. Her Sephora Sale Recommendations post was such a cool way to showcase products that she loves so it inspired me to write one. I wanted to note, that I have not been practicing what I preach in terms of brands that I support. My order really reflected that … Read More Sephora Holiday Sale Recommendations and what’s in my cart

Hero Products in My Collection

The products I’ve loved in the past year has really changed. As I get older I am trying to be sure that I have products in my collection that I actually want to use, and (failing miserably) getting away from buying products I know I will declutter in the future. I wanted to curate a list of my no fail products that I have … Read More Hero Products in My Collection

An Analysis of My Concealer Collection

I think we are all aware of the newest launch from Nudestix with their abysmal, nay embarrassing shade range. TWO deep shades? Are you serious. I was rooting for your Nudestix. I love your blushes and bronzers, and I loved your pencil concealer then you pull this crap after participating in pull up for change. Again, I understand that brands are corporations and their … Read More An Analysis of My Concealer Collection

Drugstore Formulas as Good as High End Makeup

There is a well known fact on my blog lately, that I have strayed from affordable makeup that I used to love and use. I still love affordable makeup don’t get me wrong, but as someone who has been dabbling a bit more into the world of luxury and high end but drugstore is still one of my favourite parts of the beauty industry. … Read More Drugstore Formulas as Good as High End Makeup

Products I would own if I was not a Beauty Blogger

I have seen this post done in a few different styles from various creators, including JamiePaige, Marha Leonard, and the Anna Edit. All of them had a different touch, Jamie went more for a several in different categories, Anna did it through what she would buy as a consumer of beauty content and compared to what she used to use when she started her … Read More Products I would own if I was not a Beauty Blogger

Makeup Haul

I know. I just did a blog post about ethical consumption, but I also just made a shoppers trip and a Sephora order. I’m not proud of it let me tell you. I am falling into that trap of trying to find holy grail products while having all my old makeup products still in my collection that I know and love. In any case, … Read More Makeup Haul

Ethical Consumption and Blogging

As a blogger, I have been battling with ethical consumption. I have been out of school for awhile, but under capitalism, a system that props up the rich and is reliant on individualism, really shows in the beauty industry. I have been taking a hard look at my collection and I have been trying to figure out how to balance my consumption with my … Read More Ethical Consumption and Blogging

I wanted to put together one of my own and let you know some absolute favourites that I have found in the beauty space. Now, I want to note that some of these products are from brands that are problematic or have … Read More Mid Year Beauty Favourites

Beauty to Buy When My No Buy is Done

As you may or may not know, I am a beauty no buy and ideally I’m trying to buy as little beauty products as I can until November when the V.I.B Sale. A part of this is because I am moving soon so I need to save money, and I have to buy adult things like a couch and a dining room table and … Read More Beauty to Buy When My No Buy is Done

How my Makeup Taste has Changed

When I started this blog, it was not a beauty blog or a lifestyle blog. It was a blog where I ranted, and talked about running, and talked about things I liked such as TV, but somewhere along the way it morphed into a beauty blog, featuring mostly affordable makeup with few high end products. I started this blog as a university, spending student … Read More How my Makeup Taste has Changed
