Auric Beauty: A review

Thoughts overall  Auric cosmetics is Canadian Influencer Samantha Ravendhal’s brand. However, it has found itself in a bit of hot water in the twittersphere in terms of customs, shipping times, and the whole elephant in the room: the Canadians who wanted to support but cannot. Right off the bat, Samantha Ravendhal did explain why she used US warehouses and pricing because of the costs … Read More Auric Beauty: A review

February Shop My Stash

Yay! I’m so proud. Only a few days late to the game for this blog post. I have curated a new makeup stash for the month of February. Definitely there is a pink theme happening here and I am pretty pumped to use a lot of these products.  First: the repeat offenders.

Still trying not to buy makeup to fill the void and trying to save money so i’m trying to implement less impulse shopping.

Glossier Dupes and Alternatives

As we all know, Glossier is in hot water with its treatment of employees. I wanted to curate a little dupes and alternatives post for you in order to fully encapsulate the best dupes I could find for you.  The Glossier lid star. This is a more sheer liquid shadow that creates a nice worn look on the lid. There are actually not too … Read More Glossier Dupes and Alternatives

Products in my stash this month

I tried this last year, and it clearly did not become the series I wanted it to be on this blog rather I posted a photo on Instagram and never did an accompanying blog post so it appears. When the pandemic hit, similar to other folks I know in my life, I bought a lot of shit that I did not need, as did … Read More Products in my stash this month

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

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

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

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
