Skin Savvy: The Ordinary

Skincare products are near impossible to review right out of the gate. There is an adjustment period. My sensitive skin is acne-prone, so I generally give skincare about a week before I make any hard decisions. Some products are exceptions to this rule; I knew, for instance, that I didn’t like First Aid Beauty’s cleanser…

Review: Colourpop Good Sport Palette

After being thoroughly impressed with Colourpop’s I Think I Love You palette over the summer, I decided to expand my collection. Colourpop makes a solid eyeshadow, hosts a variety of shades, and lands at a price point I find laudable. I was immediately drawn to the Good Sport palette, sixteen shadows perfectly suited for autumn…

Surprise Saturday Post: That Pat McGrath Highlighter Palette

So after talking myself off the ledge of a $170 eyeshadow palette that I do not need, I took the plunge during the Sephora VIB sale and ordered the Pat McGrath Sublime Skin Highlighter Trio: three of the most gorgeous highlighters I’d ever seen in Pat McGrath’s extra-as-hell packaging. My justification was rather flimsy. I focused…

All of the nipple creams. All of them.

Sara’s Beauty Favourites 2018

2018 was a year full of product testing for me. SO MANY FUN PRODUCTS! Actually, there are so many products I love from this last year that I could (and will) do an exclusive skincare favourites post later on. For this one, I decided to stick with products I’ve used most frequently this last year…

Sarah’s Beauty Favs 2018

We started off this blog with a round-up of beauty favourites from 2017; it’s only fitting we should kick off the new year reflecting on beauty favourites from 2018. I worried, when I put together my list of Beauty Busts, that I didn’t try a whole lot this year, but going through my make-up drawers,…

Surprise Saturday Post: Beauty Busts 2018

Hello, all! Apologies, up front, that this blog has gone quiet: it has been a very busy year here for both of us, and December has been one of the busiest months of all. But we’re coming back for another year of beauty blogging, and I thought it only fitting to get a fresh start…

First Impression: Juvia’s Place Magic Palette

I bought this palette during a cyber Monday sale aaaaand opted for the faster shipping like a total nut. The palette arrives, and it’s super meticulously packaged in bubble wrap and foam (barf). I rip everything off and open up the palette. I’m in awe of the colours, but intimidated. They are SO pigmented. SO…

Surprise, your skin hates you!

T he last few times I’ve worn eyeshadow, my eyelids feel itchy. Like they’re wearing a wool sweater. This. Has. Never. Happened. Before. Skin, why you hate me?! Part of me suspects the massive hormonal fluctuations I’ve gone through the last few months could be one of the culprits, but I’m not entirely certain. My…

Review: Milk Blur Liquid Matte Foundation

I’m shopping through my collection lately, trying to keep myself on a strict spend-fast. The process has been therapeutic but also unnerving: Black Friday and Cyber Monday have taunted the hell out of me, and rubbing salt into that wound is the growing realization that there’s a lot of my make-up collection I didn’t even…
