Books My Sister, the Serial Killer by Oyinkan Braithwaite This was a really interesting read. It had a really different style than I was used to. My Sister, the Serial Killer had short chapters and it was a really quick read, but it was gripping […]

Well folks, another VIB sale at Sephora has arrived. It comes at the perfect time to start some Christmas shopping. Most of the gift sets are out already as well, so you can get a lot of value with those. With an extra little discount, it sweetens the deal.
If you’re looking for a little extra money back, use my Rakuten code to sign up for the program and get money back every time you shop online. (I get a referral bonus if you use this link)
Here’s what I recommend to you and what’s in my cart.
These are one of my favourite lipstick formulas. It seems like Bite is reformulating these, so all of them are on sale right now for half off. When you add in the extra discount it’s a great deal.
I love First Aid Beauty skincare products, and their gift sets are alwaus amazing. They’re a pretty decent price and you get to try a whole array of their products to see what you like.
I love these mini palettes. There’s a great variety of colour stories, so you’ll be able to find one that suits you. The mauve obsessions one is my favourite, and I love the look of the new Nude Obsessions.
I’m trying to not buy sheet masks anymore. I bought one of these because they discontinued my other favourite face masks. I quite like them, and do find they make a difference. They’re a perfect stocking stuffer.
What’s In My Cart
I’ve been struggling with my skin the last couple months. I got a sample of the Knockout Tingling Treatment Toner in my last order, and I’ve found that it works really well for me. It’s hard for me to resist a set!
I love this primer. I’ve gone through a couple of these already. It’s incredibly affordable as well.
There’s also a few Christmas gifts I am picking up, so I can’t list them here! What are you going to pick up in the sale? Check out my other Sephora Recommendations and Hauls here.
Sephora, our higher end beauty mecca, is infamous for having very few sales. Sorry if you fell in love with a $30 mascara but can’t justify paying that every time the suggested 3 month usage period is up. Luckily, Sephora does have a sale in […]
I’m a lipstick fiend. There is nothing I am better at than convincing myself that I don’t already have that colour of lipstick. One of my favourite brands, BITE Beauty, has a place in Toronto where you can make custom lipsticks.
For my birthday a couple months ago, we visited the BITE Beauty Lip Lab.
There are a couple options to make your lipstick – 1 custom colour, 2 custom colours, or 2 bespoke lipsticks. I chose to make 2 custom colours. With the bespoke service you are choosing the exact mix of pigments, creating a brand new shade. This comes at a price, and it was quite a bit more than creating 2 custom shades.
With the custom shades, you talk to your artist about the colours you are going for, and what finish you want. I knew I wanted one satin and one matte. The colours I wanted were an orangey-coral, and some sort of wearable purple. The artist, Kat, suggested that the purple be matte and the coral be the satin.
We started looking at pigment colours, and we went through a few before we nailed down what I was looking for.
When the mixing was done, a scent was added. I chose cherry for the coral, and vanilla for the purple. I kiiiind of wish I chose the violet scent for the purple, you know to stick with the theme.
Then the mixes were microwaved to melt them, and poured into the mould before freezing.
Then they are tubed.
And then you have your lipsticks!!! Check out the final products.
I haven’t named them yet, any suggestions?
Some may think that $80 for two lipsticks is absurd, and I am with you for the most part. BITE lipsticks usually retail for $30 each, so to pay $10 more for it to be customised isn’t THAT absurd. This isn’t something I’m going to be doing every week, and I’m so glad I did it!
