Sephora Fall 2019 VIB Sale Recommendations & What’s In My Cart

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, […]

Influenster Voxbox – Kat Von D True Portrait Foundation

Influenster Voxbox – Kat Von D True Portrait Foundation

I received these products complimentary from Influenster and Kat Von D for review. I was looking forward to trying a new high-end foundation. I don’t often buy high-end foundation unless it’s on sale, so it was great that this one was coming to my door. […]

Sephora Haul – August 2019

Sephora Haul – August 2019

I had refrained from making any Sephora purchases for a good portion of the year. But with my recent engagement (and subsequent need to get my skincare act together, and a Sephora sale I thought it was as good a time as any to put in an order. A few items were purchased before the sale, and a few were purchased during.

Here’s what I got:

BITE Beauty Outburst Longwear Lip Stain in Strawberry Frozé

I’ve had my eye on this lipstick since it was released. I love BITE Beauty products – I even made my own lipsticks with them last year! I would have probably bought the Orange Fizz shade if it wasn’t sold out, but I do love this hot pink. The formula is very nice. It’s creamy but very long-lasting. The first time I wore it I got a bunch of compliments on the colour. If they weren’t $30 a pop (I know, I know – that’s ridiculous) I would buy the whole collection.

Sephora Collection Glow Peel Pads

I was looking for a chemical exfoliant that wouldn’t be too tough on my skin, and this seemed like the perfect thing. After one use, I liked the results and my skin didn’t freak out so I’m happy to keep using them.

Sephora Collection Bright Skin Exfoliating Scrub

While I was at it, I also got a physical exfoliator!! I just wanted something that would be a nice little scrub to use a couple times a week. I like it so far, but I’m not obsessed with it or anything.

Sephora Collection All Day Hydrator

I think I’m obsessed with the Sephora Collection skincare collection? It’s pretty reasonably priced for Sephora, you know? Anyway, I really like this moisturizer. It’s pretty light-feeling. But it maaaay be breaking me out, I’m not sure yet.

First Aid Beauty KP Bump Eraser Body Scrub

I have been blessed with breakouts on my back from the tender age of 13. Over the last few years, since I’ve been a real-life adult, it hasn’t been as bad as it was when I was a teen. But it’s still not totally gone, so I figured I would try this scrub to see if it would help. This is a HARDCORE scrub though, wow.

June/July Empties

June/July Empties

Okay, so what if August is almost over??? It’s never too late to let you know about all the products I’ve used up in the last few months. You may argue there is actually never a good time to tell you about them. But I […]

MAC Cosmetics @allanaramaa Canadian Originals Set

MAC Cosmetics @allanaramaa Canadian Originals Set

I’ve been a follower of Allana Davison for a couple years now. I enjoy influencers, especially Canadian ones. Allana is known for makeup and lifestyle posts and videos. I like her style, it’s very classic with a twist. I find her approachable and fun. She […]

April & May Empties

April & May Empties

Another few months have come and gone, and so have a few products. I’m actively trying to finish things before purchasing new ones. It’s easier for me to use up skincare products rather than makeup products. With skincare, I don’t feel the need to have multiples of moisturizers, face washes, etc. Anyway, here’s what I’ve used up lately.

Sephora Collection Cucumber Eye Masks

Do eye masks actually work? I’m not totally sure if they work. I like to use them before a big event. They’re a nice relaxation thing. Would I buy it again? I mean probably, but I’m not rushing out to buy them.

First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Hydrating Oil

I haven’t run into a FAB product that I haven’t liked, and this was no exception. I loved this little sample pack. It was a nice, hydrating oil without ever feeling too heavy. Would I buy it again? I would consider purchasing the full-sized version of this.

Drunk Elephant Protini Peptine Moisturizer

I’ve been wanting to try something from Drunk Elephant for a while, but the whole line is pretty pricey. I liked this moisturizer, but it wasn’t life changing. Would I buy it again? I don’t think so.

BB Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil Primer

I don’t blow dry my hair THAT often, but I like to use a protector when I do. It’s a nice product, and I enjoyed using it. It made my hair softer when I used it. Would I buy it again? I don’t think so. I liked it, but I didn’t love it and I’d rather try another product.

First Aid Beauty Coconut Water Cream

I got this in a set for Christmas and I was really excited to try it. I loved this moisturizer. I like a moisturizer that isn’t super heavy and this one is perfect for my skin. Would I buy it again? Yes! It was half price a couple weeks ago on the Sephora website and I regret not picking it up.

Revolution Beauty Conceal and Define Concealer in C5

I have bought this concealer at least 3 or 4 times. It has now become solely my face concealer rather than my under eye concealer. It’s reasonably priced and I think it works well. Would I buy it again? Yep!

Sephora Collection Sleeping Mask

I really like the Sephora Collection skincare items. These masks are at the top of my list. I can get a couple uses out of these and they’re very reasonably priced. Would I buy it again? Yes.

Sephora Collection Cleansing Coconut Water Wipes

I don’t regularly use makeup wipes. I’d rather just use a cleanser to remove makeup. I liked to have this little pack around for the times that I did want to use a makeup wipe. They’re very gentle and I love anything coconut. Would I buy it again? Maybe.

Kate Somerville Wrinkle Warrior 2-in-1 Moisturizer

This sample was NICE. I loved the way it made my skin feel. I considered getting a full-sized version for about 2 seconds before I saw the price. $122.00 was not happening for me!! Nothing is that nice. Would I buy it again? Uh, no.

Sephora Collection Green Tea Face Mask

I find little difference happening when I use a sheet mask. But, I did find that this one help to calm down a breakout I was having, so I was impressed. Would I buy it again? Yes, I feel like I should always have a few of these on deck.

Radius Vegan Soft Floss

I bought this thinking it was biodegradable, but I don’t think this actually is. I floss daily. Yes, I am one of those people that listens to their parents and their dentist almost always. I liked this floss, but I’d prefer the one that actually is biodegradable. Would I buy it again? Probably not.

Clear Action Deep Cleaning Astringent

An astringent has been a part of my skincare routine since high school. I feel like it’s necessary for me. It helps clean out all the dirt and grime living in my face. I’m not the most brand loyal when it comes to this, so that’s why I bought this store brand one. Would I buy it again? Yep.

March Empties

March Empties

I am currently trying to pan some of my makeup products, but here are some of the things I finished up in the month of March. Joico Blonde Life Brightening Shampoo I got this shampoo as part of a set for my birthday last year […]

Sephora Haul – January 2019

Sephora Haul – January 2019

It’s January. My skin has been shit. I needed some new things to hopefully make my skin less shit, so I paid a visit to our saviour, Sephora with a gift card in hand. Well, the online version of Sephora. It’s January so I try […]
