August Monthly Favorites

Hello all!! I can not believe that August is almost over!!! This summer has flown by. The month of September is going to be SUPER busy for me. SIGH!

Here's some products I'v been loving this month!

Sephora Collection Clay Masks - I have the Pink Clay, and Purple clay masks. The purple is for hydrating, and the Pink is for evening the skin. I haven't noticed any difference in the even-ness of my skin. But these really moisturize my skin and make it feel soft and smooth!!

Sephora Collection Honey Lip Scrub - I love this!! I'v been using a LUSH lipscrub, and finished it. And decided to try this. and it's amazing. Its non messy, it's balmy, and really smooths my lips!

Sephora Collection Lashcraft Big Volume Mascara - I have stubby. shitty lashes. In the photos y'all see of my eyes, I USUALLY have 5 coats of mascara on in them. With this mascara I can get away with three coats of mascara! Yay!

Clinique Black Honey Pop Blush - This is the best neutral/everyday blush i'v ever found!! It's a nice plummy colour, that blends out so eaily!

First Aid Beauty Vanilla Lemon Ultra Repair Cream - I FINALLY tried this cream last month, and it's changed my life!! It apply one to two layers at night after all of my treatments and it locks everything in and really moisturizes my skin!!! I wake up to soft, smooth skin with this!

Sephora Collection Blush To Go Blush Stick Review - 09 Miss Gorgeous

Hello again friends!!

Today I'm showing you all swatches and my thoughts on a new blush stick I bought from Sephora.

I have the shade 09 Miss Gorgeous, which is a nice Reddish Pink.

This blush is a cream to powder. As I blend it, I can feel it turning powdery. It's a cool feeling!

This is a more sheer cream blush. So I'd highly recommend this to blush beginners!! I have to do two and a half layers of this, to get my desired flush.

I use a MAC 159, a duo fiber blush brush and I'll lightly stipple this onto my cheek bones.

It doesn't move my foundation when i use a brush. But when I blend with my fingers it DOES move my foundation.

Lasting power is usual of the cream blush for me. Around 5 hours, when set.

Overall: 7.5/10.

Urban Decay Jean Michel Basquiat Blush Palette Review + Swatches


I'v been deciding if I should post this, for a good week or two. But I figured since this is still available on Sephora Canada. I'll post it!

X-Rated is a matte cool, light pink blush
Now's The Time is a shimmery golden highlight
Jawbone is a matte warm medium brown bronzer
NoHo is a matte purple/plum blush

To cut to the chase, I LOVE this palette! It's my favorite cheek palette to date. I'v hit pan on Jawbone, because I use it every single day to add warmth and definition to my cheeks and.

I use NoHo the most out of the two blushes. But X-Rated is still stunning!!

These blend, and buff out easily. I don't feel like I need to bring out the big guns to blend them out.

They aren't SUPER powdery to the point I have to lightly tap my brush into the pan. But they aren't stiff or hard.

I would recommend this palette for light medium to medium tan skintones. I'v seen swatches of this palette on deep dark skin. And the two blushes were definitely ashy looking!!

Overall: 9/10

Make Up For Ever Star Lit Powder Review and Swatches - 04 Frozen Green

Hello!!! Good morning!!

Today I'm showing you all one of my new favorite highlights!

Make Up For Ever Star Lit Powder in Frozen Green. It's a stunning iridescent green/white duochrome.

This is a loose powder that can be used on the Eyes, and Cheeks! I only own this one (but spoiler I will be buying more!!) but the lovely Christine @ Temptalia pointed out, they all seem to come with differing amounts. My jar of Frozen Green comes with 0.7 Grams. Which, for $25. I'm not very happy!

Here is the first look I did, using this powder on my eyes. Here I mixed it with a deeper/darker green shadow. Frozen Green lightened the other shadow, and made it more mossy/light and shimmery!

Here is a second look I did with Frozen green. Here I used a bunch of warm browns in the crease (warm browns and greens are my FAVORITE combo!) and lightly patted frozen green all over the inner parts of my mobile lids. Here you can see, it's sheer-er on it's own, and lighter.

Here, even though it's hard to see. I'm using it as a cheek highlight! It looks very pretty, iridescent, and shiny on my cheek bones!

Overall: 7/10
Pros: Light fall out, doesn't explode out of the container, easy to apply/blend
Cons: Little product for the price, Even if it's light there is fall out. 
Price: $25

Juice Beauty Sport SPF30 Sport Sunscreen Review

Hello all!! I'm going to chat about something very near and dear to me today!!

Sunscreen! :-)

I'v worn at the least SPF30 sunscreen every single day, for the past 4 years. I never leave the house without it on my face, neck, and whatever is exposed (so my shoulders, back, forearms, and hands!)

I prefer a mineral sunscreen personally, and stay far away from chemical sunscreens!

This sunscreen comes in a pretty large 110ml squeeze bottle. The lid snaps shut nicely, but isn't impossible to open!

The texture of this sun screen is thick, and creamy! I'v found, it's not moisturizing enough for me to skip my morning moisturizer. But a super oily skin type may find that it's enough!

It has an off white/cream colour to it. And I find it doesn't create a stark white cast against my NC23 skintone!

Here is my face, after 2 and a half thick layers of this sunscreen patted/smoothed onto my skin. You can see the finish isn't too dewy, but it's not a powdery matte! It looks very natural!!

Overall? At $25 a tube, I would HIGHLY recommend this sunscreen! It didn't aggravate my acne prone skin AT ALL, and keeps me nice and protected against the harsh UVA and UVB rays!!
