Maybelline Metallic Matte Lipsticks – Review & Swatches

One of my first real lipstick loves were the Maybelline Matte Lipsticks. They were one of the first lipsticks that I felt lasted such a long time on my lips and really looked good on me. I have really dry lips all the time so sometimes the super juicy and glossy lip colours can look a little weird on me. So I’ve been very loyal to most Maybelline lipsticks and I have a fairly excessive collection. I was super excited when I found out they were releasing Metallic Matte lipsticks. I really can’t turn down a good metallic lipstick.

Physicians Formula Butter Highlighter Review and Swatches

Physicians Formula recently released highlighters in their murumuru butter line. I’m obsessed with the butter bronzer and blush so I figured I needed to try them out!

I was really hopeful on the formula but before I was able to find them at my local drugstore I heard that the formula was completely different. They are more like the Colourpop highlighters than the other murumuru butter products. I honestly thought that was a little weird for Physicians Formula to do. It would make sense for them to keep everything in a similar formula. But I’m such a fan of the Colourpop super shock highlighters that I wanted to give the Physicians Formula ones a try to see how they compared.

December 2017 Monthly Favourites

I am finally back to blogging after quite a long hiatus over the past couple months. It wasn’t really planned on my end but life was busy and unfortunately my blog wasn’t able to take priority. I was juggling a few jobs for a while and I moved to a new apartment. Everything is finally starting to settle down and I plan to go into 2018 with more of a focus on my blog! I’m really excited to see what the new year brings and it’s looking good so far!

Ipsy Review – September 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 Boss Babe. Basically they wanted to give a vibe of being able to conquer the world while empowering other women. I loved that idea but I have no clue how any of the products I received have anything to do with that. Well except the nail polish shade name – Girl Boss. It’s not really the most girl boss colour though – I would have expected something a little more bold with that name.

Makeup Bag Monday #6

Recently I’ve introduced a new blog series – Makeup Bag Monday. I’ve been loving watching and reading other bloggers posts and videos so I wanted to try it out for myself.

Each week I put five products to the test and review them.  This week I focused on a few new products and a bunch that I’ve had in my collection for a while. I ended up liking all of the products so it was a good week for makeup for me for the most part!
