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 have seen a few creators doing these mid year favourites, mostly Michele Wang and a few others in the beauty space.

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

Indie Alternatives to Mainstream products

I was taking a hard look at my collection, and was looking at some items that I haven’t used in awhile, and some brands that I love the products but they have yet to pull up (looking at your hourglass) and other things that I enjoy but a few of the products either come from problematic brands or brands that have made no effort … Read More Indie Alternatives to Mainstream products

Makeup Starter Kit based on YOU

Awhile ago on Instagram I polled what your preferences would be in certain makeup categories. The overall finding was that people were willing to spend in two areas: eyeshadow palettes and foundations. I don’t know what this attributed to the income bracket and who my following is. I will admit that the majority of people that follow me are white, and they are able … Read More Makeup Starter Kit based on YOU

A chat about Foundation Ranges

Let’s talk about my foundation collection. I think this warranted a whole post because I really am trying to approach my blog without being performative, but also trying to balance what I have always had to balance, drugstore finds and people IRL asking me for a cheap foundation, as well as wanting to continue to provide accessible options for Canadians (we all know the … Read More A chat about Foundation Ranges

Battle of the Bronzers: Comparison and Mini reviews

Bronze is one of those items that I personally, never thought I would be using. I used to not understand what it was, how to use it, how to find one, until my gateway bronzer, the Physicians formula butter bronzer in light bronzer. I was always scared of turning myself orange and that was the perfect bronzer to start with. I actually finished that … Read More Battle of the Bronzers: Comparison and Mini reviews
