April 2017 Favourites

April 2017 Favourites

Throughout the month of April I’ve gone on a serious buying spree. So I’ve been trying to fall back in love with products that I’ve owned for awhile in hopes that it would make me realize that I don’t need to spend more money on makeup. I’m excited to try out everything that I purchased this past month and I’m sure some of those products will be in future favourites posts!

I’ve had a pretty exciting yet busy month of April. I went on vacation with my boyfriend in the middle of the month and spent a lot of time trying to keep up with all my work before and after the trip. It was totally worthwhile and I feel more inspired to focus on my blog and social media accounts a lot more! I have quite a few favourites this month and they are all products that I just couldn’t put down throughout April!

My Week In Lipstick #12

My Week In Lipstick #12

Every week I love playing around with new makeup products. My biggest addiction is lipstick products. I have way more products than I could ever need. Recently I’ve decided that I need to try to get out of my comfort zone and wear more products on a regular basis. Keeping a weekly lip diary has been a really fun way to keep track of everything and it holds me accountable for wearing more lip products.

I spent most of my week trying to catch up on work after being on vacation. Most of the time I feel like I need a vacation right after being on vacation because of how much I need to do when I get back. I was pretty excited with the lip colours that I ended up wearing though. I really tried to wear products that I often forget about.

Ipsy Review – April 2017

Ipsy Review – April 2017

Ipsy is one of my all time favourite subscription services. I’ve been subscribed to Ipsy long before I even had an idea of how to use a majority of the products that I received. It’s an inexpensive way to try out a bunch of different beauty products on a regular basis. Each month, subscribers receive a Glam Bag with 5 deluxe samples and full-sized beauty products. The service costs $10 USD, shipping is free within the US and an additional $4.95 USD to ship to Canada.

This month’s theme was Sideshow. It was supposed to give you vibes of confidence and embracing your true self. I didn’t really get any crazy fun products in my bag so I wasn’t really feeling the Sideshow vibes. I still loved the bag and everything in it. I’m just sometimes a little confused by how the theme represents the products.

My Week In Lipsticks #11

My Week In Lipsticks #11

Every week I love playing around with new makeup products. My biggest addiction is lipstick products. I have way more products than I could ever need. Recently I’ve decided that I need to try to get out of my comfort zone and wear more products on a regular basis. Keeping a weekly lip diary has been a really fun way to keep track of everything and it holds me accountable for wearing more lip products.

I had a jam packed week because my boyfriend and I went to Quebec City and stopped in Ottawa for a night on our way back. I went to University in Ottawa and my best friend still lives there so it was an awesome pit stop. We spent a lot of time in the car over the week but I still tried to play around and switch up my lipstick as much as I could. I ended up bringing 20 different lip options for only 5 days of vacation, so I was definitely prepared to wear different lipsticks.

Sephora VIB Rouge Sale Wishlist & Recommendations

Every year Sephora has a sale in early spring where they offer their shoppers a discount on anything in the store. Since items rarely go on discount at Sephora this is a great way to get a deal on that pricey product that you’ve been wanting.

Sephora splits up the sale based on their reward system tiers. This year is no different.

This year the discounts and days are:
VIB Rouge – April 18th until April 24th (15% off)
VIB – April 19th until April 24th (15% off)
Beauty Insider – April 20th until April 23rd (10% off)

I put together a list of some of my must have products that I want to try out or repurchase. The Sephora sales are always a great time to purchase those big ticket items!
