Definitely there is a pink theme happening here and I am pretty pumped to use a lot of these products.  First: the repeat offenders.

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

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

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

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

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

A bit late into the month. 11 days to be exact. I have been busy with work but am back to tell you what is in my monthly makeup basket for this month (excluding lips and mascara because I am always changing it up). I have probably a lot more in my monthly makeup basket than most normal folks out there. But when you … Read More Monthly Makeup Basket January 2020

Beauty Minimalism as a Beauty Blogger

Beauty minimalism is something I wanted to talk about. I think the definition of minimalism is very personal but is tied with surrounding yourself with things that you genuinely love. The way I want to talk about the idea of minimalism from a beauty standpoint is discussing release fatigue. Basically release fatigue is when you are tired of brands releasing and releasing product (looking … Read More Beauty Minimalism as a Beauty Blogger

12 Days of Blogging Day 4: Brands I want to Try in 2019

I know that I am not the type of person to go on a year long no buy, but I also want to make better decisions about my purchases. I wanted to do a post outlining some brands I want to try in 2019. I think this will be a nice reference point for me, first so that I can try new things, but … Read More 12 Days of Blogging Day 4: Brands I want to Try in 2019
