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…

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…

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…

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…

Do I Need…? Melt’s Smoke Sessions Palette

I need to unpack another irrational desire this week, because Melt’s newest palette drops this Friday and boy, oh, boy, do I want the crap out of it despite only seeing myself using four of the shadows. Melt Cosmetics came to my attention thanks to their Gemini palette, a gorgeous array of golds and greens…

Do I Need…?: Pat McGrath’s MOTHERSHIPS

Sephora’s VIB sale ended yesterday. 20% off everything in-store and online, not to mention additional deals and holiday gift sets: it’s an exercise in unbridled avarice, a celebration of consumerism, and a good opportunity to stock-up on products that aren’t otherwise discounted. I admit that I topped up my supply of skincare items and grabbed…

Review: Fenty Stunna Lip Paint

2018 will go down in my personal history books as the Year Fenty Won My Heart Over and Over Again. I have yet to try a product from their line that disappoints me. The foundation is my new standard, the Flyliner is always in my travel kit, and the Killawatt highlighter is so brilliant I…

Review: Bite Beauty Lipstick

I celebrated the start of October with lipstick. A few weeks ago, I picked up Kale by Bite Beauty, this gorgeous shade of dark green. Seemed like a bit of a ludicrous purchase, but I was enamoured with the idea of it, and now, having rocked the look for a full day – a full work day –…

Fall Face Care

Oh, my gosh, it’s winter already. Thank goodness my building manager has gotten the furnace going, or I would be living out of whichever room was small enough to warm sufficiently with a space heater. I’m stunned that we’ve already had snow here in Saskatchewan. I shouldn’t be; we’ve had snow in May before. But…

Getting Your Sparkle On

I love glitter. Rather un-pragmatic of me, I know, but I can’t help myself. There’s something about glitter that I can’t resist. I’m one of the five people who hasn’t unhauled their Moondust palette, for instance. I put MAC’s Dazzledusts on my list of favourite products from 2017. There’s a lot that can go wrong…
