I definitely bought into the hype surrounding the OleHenriksen Cold Plunge Pore Mask. I’ve loved seeing everyone wearing this bright blue mask. It looks like such a fun experience and I’ve heard nothing but good things about it so I wanted to give it a try myself. I’ve usually had good experiences with OleHenriksen products so I was hoping it would live up to my expectations.
Morphe launched in Sephora Canada quite a few months ago and made it way easier and better accessible to get their products. Lately I only buy makeup products from Sephora or the drugstore for the most part. I just don’t want to deal with the hassle of ordering from a brands website and most of the time I realize that I don’t even need the product. So even though everyone has been hyping up the Morphe Continuous Setting Mist and I’ve been wanting to try it out I just never got around to purchasing. BUT then Morphe launched in Sephora Canada and I picked this up within 5 minutes of finding out the products were there.
The Nars Hot Tryst Cheek Palette was one of the few palettes that I spent a lot of time debating if I need/want it. I tend to just go with my impulses when it comes to makeup purchases but I spent quite some time debating if this was necessary for my collection. In the end I couldn’t deny the gorgeous packaging and the fairly decent reviews on the palette. I knew I would regret not picking up the palette. I did manage to get it on sale though so that was a bonus!
My first thought when I saw the palette was that I was shocked by how small and compact the palette was. For some reason when I saw pictures I assumed it was a lot larger than it actually is. It basically fits to be the size of my hand. I don’t necessarily need a product that is huge and takes up space because I’ll probably never even make it through all of this product anyways. I guess just because of the high price point I expected a little more – but it is a Nars product and that usually comes with a more luxury price tag.
The top row is a lot less pigmented – which isn’t the worst thing. With cheek products I do like less pigment because it’s easier to blend out and build up that way. I don’t want clown cheeks or crazy intense highlight with one light swipe of product. This way I can ensure that I have the exact look that I’m going for.
I’m definitely excited to have this in my collection and use it up more! It’s tough to use the product though because the imprint on each pan is so gorgeous but I want to try to get a lot of use out of it and make the purchase worth it!
I recently was told by a friend that I might be a little too obsessed with Maybelline products because that was all I was suggesting to her when she was asking me for recommendations! But their products just perform so well and I can never get enough of them! The one product that I was most excited to try out recently was the Maybelline Colour Sensational Shine Compulsion Lipsticks! I can’t get enough of Maybelline Colour Sensational Lipsticks so I knew when this was released that it was a must try.
For this Makeup Bag Monday post I decided to pick out products that I don’t use very often and that are glowy and fun for the holiday season! I really wanted to try to pick products that had a bit of a theme this month and that I could easily use with a lot of other different products.
In this series I try out 5 products and attempt to use them every single day for one month. This helps to give me a better understanding of exactly how I feel about the products. It sometimes forces me to use products that I rarely reach for or ones that I might have forgotten about.
