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…

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…

A Personal History of Dry Shampoo – The Sequel!

A while ago, I made a post detailing my misadventures with dry shampoo. I’m going into this with a few disadvantages, all of which I’ve outlined before, but to sum up: 1) I’ve washed my hair daily for years now, so the oil production is pretty out of control; 2) I have fine hair, which…

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…

Sara’s September Challenge Diary 3/3

Well… The last 10 days of September, I did zero make-uping that I can recall when I went out. So no diary as per the first 2/3 of the challenge. But I’ll go over some of my goals and how I felt about them: My “rules” for my September Self-Care Challenge: Go through my usual…

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…

Sara’s September Challenge Diary Part 2/3

Day 11-15 – Nothing to report except that I’ve finally been feeling like my old self again! Still, some progress to go, but slowly catching up on sleep since the baby IS FINALLY SLEEPING THROUGH THE NIGHT! We’re talking 8+ hours of uninterrupted sleep ❤ this is definitely helping my skin, haha. Days 16-21 –…
