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!

Bite Beauty Lipstick Collection – Swatches and Review

A little while ago I posted my Mac lipstick collection. I loved how that post turned out and it was really fun to dive into my makeup collection to rediscover some makeup that I basically forgot about. I decided I want to try and do that a little more often for some of the makeup brands that I have a decent amount of lipstick from.

This post is going to focus on all of the Bite Beauty lip products that I own. I never realized that this was a brand that I actually had a lot of lipstick from until I started looking at my lipstick collection by brand rather than by colour family. (My lipstick collection is currently organized in colour groups – pink, nude, red and deep/vampy). I have a pretty wide collection of colours from Bite Beauty so I was really excited to put this post together.

Makeup Bag Monday #5 – Colourpop Edition

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 chose to try out just Colourpop products. I had a few new products in my collection and a couple products that are my go-to favourites so I thought this would be a fun way to share them.
