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

I saw Michelle Wang do this video, her titled is products I’m a sucker for, and have had it on my list to write on the blog for a while. I wanted to go through some of the … Read More Products I can’t resist

How I achieve Glowing Skin

I don’t think I have a signature, but I think most people would say my claim to fame is my dewy skin. Dewy skin is where I live and breathe my daily life. Highlighter, give it to me, dewy primer, yes please, super hydrating moisturizer, hello yes I’d like that too. I thought I would do a dedicated post about how I achieve the … Read More How I achieve Glowing Skin

Drugstore Hero Products

From my month of only wearing drugstore makeup I discovered quite a few lovely drugstore products. I wanted to share some drugstore products that are sort of hero products in my collection. This was also in part inspired by Mariah Leonard. Stay tuned this month for a “what happened to my skin when I used high end makeup for a month”. Joe Fresh powder … Read More Drugstore Hero Products

Drugstore Concealer Round up

Because I’m not sent anything, I obviously do not have EVERY drugstore concealer on the market for this post. However, I have quite a few concealers I’ve been collecting over the past 7 months, FOR SCIENCE. I wanted to give mini-reviews on each. I think it’s helpful to have a reference point for something that most people use in their daily lives, makeup lover … Read More Drugstore Concealer Round up

A word on Decluttering

Decluttering is something I’ve always struggled with, whether its clothes, books, random things from my childhood or makeup. It is something I really want to get better at and I’ve been pretty good with clothes. If it doesn’t fit, it’s donated, if it’s broken, it’s fixed or I fix it then I donate it. With makeup and with having a blog, I find myself … Read More A word on Decluttering

Earth toned makeup look

I have always been a fan of earth-toned makeup, while this could have been a green look or a blue look I don’t tend to buy lots of colours so I decided in honour of earth day I wanted to create earth-toned look. I want to acknowledge that the beauty industry is a wasteful industry, packaging, advertising, etc. I constantly buy products in packaging … Read More Earth toned makeup look

Fam, I wanted to be a good soul and not buy drugstore makeup or at least as much but DAMN I can’t resist a new launch. I bought some goodies this month in the makeup … Read More New in makeup

Things I liked and Did in January

January was a whirlwind interesting month for me. I made life decisions and have fulfilled my goal of trying more career things and have contracted yet another cold, hence the little hiatus of posts on here! I’m attempting to balance this new 8:30 – 4:30 job life with the blog and such.  I found and discovered many products, surprise, surprise, the drugstore impulse purchases … Read More Things I liked and Did in January

12 Days of Blogging Day 8: L’Oreal Shaping Stick vs. Maybelline Super Stay Foundation Stick

I wanted to review a few stick foundations – because for some reason I can’t get enough of buying them from the drugstore. Instead of just reviewing one, I wanted to throw these two newish foundations head to head. I have tested each under several conditions: 12 hour shifts, night out makeup, with primer, without primer, and the resounding verdict it the Maybelline just … Read More 12 Days of Blogging Day 8: L’Oreal Shaping Stick vs. Maybelline Super Stay Foundation Stick
