After seeing the spoilers, I thought I would sign up for Boxycharm for the month of January. I thought I’d be pretty satisfied with any of the variations I was seeing online. Plus, they had a pretty good sign up deal with a few free […]

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.
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. […]
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 bet if you weren’t even slightly interested, you wouldn’t have clicked this link anyway.
I received this travel-size of this infamous cream in a Boxycharm box last year. After all of the hype I heard about it, I didn’t think it was possible to live up to the hype. Well, I was wrong. This is really the best smelling cream I’ve ever used. The cream itself is also very nice. Do I think that the full-size is worth almost $60?? No, not really. But, you can often get a good deal with one of their sets at Sephora (like this one here). Would I buy it again? Who am I kidding, I probably would. I actually bought a similar set to the one linked above last year.
I don’t really love spending a lot of money on products you can’t see – like an eyeshadow base. This was a decently cheap product, and I’ve heard it worked pretty well. Now, I’ve been blessed with greasy eyelids so a lot of the time eyeshadow just glides right off. This base didn’t really help my case. I thought I was resigned to creased eyeshadow for the rest of my life until I started using this Wet ‘N Wild one that was recommended to me. Now THAT keeps my eyeshadow on. This essence one? Not so much. Would I buy it again? Nope.
This has been my go-to setting spray for a while now, but I think this was my last bottle. I gravitated towards it because it was so cheap. It’s just not doing it for me anymore though. It’s a decent-ish setting spray, but it’s not overly special or anything. Would I buy it again? No.
Sheet masks aren’t my favourite. I feel like they’re kind of wasteful, and I never really notice a huge difference. I received 3 of these masks in a Boxycharm box and I was excited to use them. I thought they were find, but not worth their $16 price tag. I don’t think I could ever find a sheet mask that expensive would be though. Would I buy it again? Probably not.
Welcome to this month’s edition of what soap did we use up! This month was Spiced Mandarin. Sure, it’s not the most summery scent that was in the cupboard, but my boyfriend is picky about handsoap scents. I really liked this scent! Would I buy it again? Yes.
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 […]
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.
I got this shampoo as part of a set for my birthday last year along with the brightening conditioner and the hair masque. I loved this set. It always made my hair feel nice, and it definitely looked brighter. Would I buy it again? Yes, but not until I’ve made my way through the shampoos I already have in the shower.
Another month, another Bath & Body Works hand soap. Ethan picked out this scent from our cupboard after confessing to me that he couldn’t stand the Vanilla Chai Latte I had chosen. Would I buy it again? Yes, I liked the scent.
I received this mini primer in a set I got using a bunch of Sephora points. I liked the primer. It was definitely hydrating and if that’s what you’re looking for in a primer I don’t think you’ll be disappointed, but I do prefer the First Aid Beauty Coconut Smoothie Primer. Would I buy it again? Probably not.
I got these as free samples in the mail. The moisturizer is super nice. I was skeptical about how brightening it would actually be, but i was proved wrong. I absolutely noticed a different in my skin. It is pretty heavy, and I did have some breakouts from this. Would I buy it again? I can’t say I would. It is NICE but I can’t justify the price tag.
This body wash was purchased in one of B&BW maaany sales. I loved using this body wash, love anything lavender. This body wash smells so good. Would I buy it again? Absolutely.
