Skincare Savvy: Spousal Edition

I finally had the opportunity to trade in several years worth of Lush pots for a complimentary face mask. Rather than enjoy the spoils of my hard-earned victory by myself, I asked my husband to join me in the process. And rather than blog about my experiences with the face mask, I thought I would…

Review: Naked Reloaded Palette

The Naked palettes have always been on my radar but never in my collection. I’ve waffled between Naked 2 and Naked 3, loving the shadows but never being able to justify the cost. A neutral palette, in my humble opinion, should be affordable and include shades ranging from highlighters to black. Every neutral palette should…

Review: Essano Rosehip Gentle Facial Cleansing Micellar Water

I made a point of traveling with an abridged version of my skincare routine this trip. I should know better by now: there are ways of shortening the process I’ve established, but certain products are essential to maintaining my complexion and overall health of my skin regardless of how much they weigh in my bag….

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…
