November 2018 Product Empties

Hi Everyone! Here are last month’s product empties: Amika Nourishing Mask – I got this on Amazon, so this is the old packaging. The new one looks pretty much the same (design-wise), but the font is a bit bigger. This mask made my hair smooth and shiny. Repurchase? Maybe. I did really enjoy it, but […]

Hi Everyone! Here is today’s makeup of the day. I have two favourites from today’s makeup picks. I really love the Maybelline Fit Me Stick Foundation. It’s long-wearing and it blends easily.

My Makeup Picks | July 31, 2018

Hi Everyone! Here were today’s picks. I wore my makeup for about 8 hours and I touched up half way through the day. I didn’t have any powder and I was too lazy to use my blotting papers, but I did sort of wipe off a bit of my makeup around the nose area and […]

Makeup Goals | A Streamlined Makeup Collection

Hi Everyone! When I was doing my mid-year makeup inventory, I realized just how much makeup I had. It’s kind of ridiculous how much makeup I’ve accumulated in the past two years. 2016 was when I got more into makeup and it was only last year that started buying products like highlighter and bronzer. I […]

October 2017 Faves

Hi Everyone! Here are my faves from October! If it’s not obvious from my #motd posts, I love the Lancome Miracle Cushion Liquid Cushion Compact Foundation in 025 Beige Naturel.
