It seems I have been slacking on the blog lately, my excuse, the transition back to being on mat leave to work, I didn’t expect it to be this tired… early bedtimes and just all over tired / busy has taken over. But I miss you guys! So as a come back, here are my April – June Favs! Lots to chat about 🙂
Too Faced Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar
I think I have talking about this before but I still have been using it like crazy this month. I love the neutral looks that are quick and cute that I am able to get out of it. The formula is great, smooth, blends well, pigmented, just easy to work with. I also do not shy away from the blue! Lots of people say, oh it’s a great palette but ignore the blue, I say, embrace the blue! I use it to add a pop of blue in the outer corner with a nice navy liner, see below!
Sorry this is so late! I was out of the country when my box came in and I wasn’t able to get this up until now. From what I hear tho, there was lots of drama around how long this box took to arrive.. So maybe some of you haven’t seen it yet? lol
My month of March was full but so much fun! I escaped the last hit of winter in spring by going to florida for 12 days and heading to Disney and it was my daughter’s 1st birthday (omg time flies… it really does). I used the same things a lot this month and a few stand outs from my trip. It is not a long list but products that are worth it!
NYX #03 brush
So soft. Sooo soft! OK, I guess you know that this brush is soft. But I have to say it again, it is soooo soft lol. I also love the shape of it, it works well bronzer, blush or powder. I found it a very versatile brush that you can multitask with. I have other brushes that are just as soft but I found that the brushes aren’t as dense or have trouble picking up enough product. I do not have any issues with this brush. I love it.
Phiew, long time no talk. The last weeks have been insane, from being sick to having my precious girl being admitted to the hospital and then more… So let’s just say that I haven’t had lots of time to blog or put on makeup. However, there are a couple things I wanted to talk about since I did have chance to use them and love them. So here we go, a short but good one this month!
Clinique Quickliner for Eyes Intense in Black Honey
This eyeliner is life. I love it. It glides on soo smoothly for an easy, quick application. The colour is also exactly what I am looking for. I am not a fan of black eyeliner so I love dark colours that are still dark but not black. If you are aware of the Black Honey line, the liner keeps with the trend. It is like a mix of brown and burgundy that makes the green in my eyes pop. Loving it.
I don’t like January… It is cold, snowy, all the Christmas spirit is gone… and to top it off, we all got sick… boo… So for the 1st 2 weeks of the month, no makeup touched my face.. So I don’t have a ton to share with you guys this month.
FAB Vitamin Hydrating Mist
Being sick, my skin wanted hydration! So whenever I would go in my washroom, I would spray this on my face and omg… it feels so nice. It just feels hydrating and rejuvenating. I just love it. It made me feel so good during my cold.
I was browsing the blog the other day and ran into some of my favourite ones that I did this year. I thought, since we are ending our 3rd year on the blog, that I would look back and countdown my 5 favourites posts to bring in year 4 of the blog, 2017. I wanted to pick posts that I am not only proud of but that are still useful, pertinent and entertaining as you read this or a place you can go back to for some information.
Here we go, let’s start the countdown
#5: Makeup Trends That Make Me Say “Nope”
My opinion only, but I like these kinds of posts sometimes to see and talk about something different.
Happy New Year!!! December has been insane. The month flew by, Christmas has come and gone and wow… January.. I do not like January …
Let’s talk about things I do like!
La Châtelaine Hand Creams
They are back.. yes I am talking about these again.. I love them that much! I was looking for the Costco kit again this year, that has 12 of the hand creams, and I couldn’t find them. So, I contacted the company who sent me tons of information and the 2 kits in the pictures down below. The creams are very moisturizing, not greasy and smell amazing. I have one in my purse, at my computer desk, in my kitchen, at work and next to my sofa. The other item is the soap, I’ve only tried it once so I cannot say much about it but it smells amazing. The tins are super cute and reusable!
So yah.. I went shopping for Christmas while my parents watched the little one. Nice break for the parents… well, I spoiled myself too lol. If you want to snoop and see what I purchased, check it out below!
I got the Physicians Formula stuff at Shoppers Drug Mart and the rest at Jean Coutu.
(note: sorry about the bad pics, I didn’t have good lighting where I was)
And FINALLY, the last declutter for 2016! It was a long road, thank you for sticking with me 🙂 We finish with my high end lipsticks… yah, I have way more than I thought.. I am noticing that this is a recurring theme. It is true though, you only really notice all that you have when you take it all out! I’ll do one last post after this one to show you the before and after of my collection. Enjoy!
