Review: Fenty Pro Filt’r Powder and Concealer

Last year was easily the Year of Fenty. I loved every single thing I tried from them, with few exceptions. Yes, the formula of the Stunna Lip Paint was a little thin, and yeah, the Flyliner had a little too much sheen for my liking, but overall, I found myself several new standards. I went…

Review: Colourpop Dream St.

I admit this was purchase strictly to qualify for free shipping, but – not to get ahead of myself in a review – I’m very happy that I ordered this palette. The Colourpop Dream St. palette is a collaboration with Kathleen Lights. It is twelve pressed eyeshadows – some mattes and metallics – ranging from…

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…

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: First Aid Beauty Face Cleanser Review

The past couple of times I’ve been to Sephora, I’ve asked about skincare. I’m looking to switch up some products, not because my routine isn’t working but because change is good. Trying new things is good. One thing I’ve noticed, though, is that the recommendations are centering more and more on one brand. When I…

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 –…

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…

Skin Savvy: Josie Maran 100% Argan Oil

Conversations with Sephora employees tend, in my experience, to go one of two ways: a quick point in the direction of a particular product, or a full-blown conversation about my specific needs. In the case of my recent visit – which like so many visits was done out of habit more than necessity – I…
