NYX HD Blush in 'Rose Gold' - Review & Swatches

 When it comes to blush for the summertime, there are two things in particular that I'm looking for. I tend to lean on the more coral/peach side of the colour spectrum, and I like my blushes to have a bit of a glow. I initially picked up the Nyx HD Blush in 'Rose Gold', thinking it might be a dupe for the Nars 'Orgasm' blush, but when I actually compared the two, I preferred this one. It's all the pretty, glowy peachy pink, minus the chunky glitter.
 The blush itself is very blendable and very pigmented. It is a bit powdery (as you can see in the photo) and the product kicks up a bit when you put a brush to it, but it applies so flawlessly on the cheeks.
This blush has become my go-to summer blush. It gives a beautiful flushed colour to the cheeks, along with a golden glow, so you could even skip on the highlighter when wearing this product.It pairs so nicely with both bold or natural looks, making it a great, versatile blush to have in your collection!

MAY FAVOURITES!

Hi everyone! Long time no talk 😋😋 and happy June!
I'm back from my brief exam and study hiatus, and now that I've officially graduated I'm so excited to have more time to be writing on here about my monthly favourites! There aren't too many, since I didn't really try out too many new things, but I rediscovered a lot of old loves within my collection that I ended up using all month long.

Colourpop Super Shock Shadow in 'KathleenLights' 
Every single time I wear this eyeshadow, I will guaranteed receive compliments on it. It is hands down the most beautiful true gold shade that is just so flattering on the eyelids. I'm so obsessed with it.
Nyx Soft Matte Lip Cream in 'Prague' 
It's no secret that I'm a huge fan of Nyx's soft matte lip creams, so obviously I had to add to my collection. Prague is a super pretty deep mauvy pink colour and I'm so in love with it.
Milani Rose Blush in 'Romantic Rose'
This blush, besides being 1) super affordable and 2) so pretty, is seriously the most pigmented and flattering blush I've worn in a really long time. I'm so glad I picked this up because I've been using it every day since April and I just can't get enough.

Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in 'Opal'
I had forgotten just how much I loved this highlight until I started re-using it this past month. It's just so intense and just so GOOD. It applies so flawlessly on the high points of the face and is so eye catching without looking unnatural.
Anastasia Beverly Hills Single Shadow in 'Dusty Rose'
This single shadow for a while now has been my go-to eyeshadow to wear on my minimal makeup days. I just slap it on, all over the lid, or in the crease paired with any pink or purple toned shadows. It's a super flattering colour for my skin tone.
Lise Watier Rouge Gourmand Velours in 'Noble Nude' 
I'm so obsessed with the formula of these lipsticks. They are honestly unlike everything I've ever felt. They are the most matte lipsticks I've ever used, and literally feel like velvet when you put them on your lips. You definitely need to exfoliate your lips well before using them but it's so worth it.

Let me know what you loved this past month!

My Spring Makeup Essentials: Pink

As soon as spring rolls around, my makeup looks tend to shift to the more pink side of things. I've really been loving the monochrome makeup trend these days because rosy eyeshadow and pink lips are right up my alley.

If you're like me and you love these kinds of looks, here are my favourite makeup products that you need in your life, like, yesterday.

Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette
I whip out this palette for almost every eyeshadow look I ever do. It is just a must have.

Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette
I waited on picking up this palette for a long time but I finally bit the bullet and went for it. Obviously I love it. If you're like me and you love pink-toned makeup looks, don't hesitate on picking up this palette.

Maybelline The Blushed Nudes Palette 
If you're looking for a more affordable palette that still packs a punch, I highly recommend the Maybelline Blushed Nudes palette. The metallic shades in this are so freaking gorgeous, it blows my mind.

Too Faced Melted Lipstick in 'Melted Chihuahua' 
This is more of a rosy nude on my lips, and it's just one of those lip colours that complements any eye look, so it's definitely a must have in my collection.

Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in 'Baci' and 'Patina' 
I've recently fallen in love with this liquid lipstick formula (why did I wait so long to try these!?). The colour selection is fantastic as well. Definitely pick one (or many!) of these up.

Physicians Formula Happy Booster Blush 
This is my holy grail pink blush right now. If you want a blush that makes your cheeks look flushed and healthy, with a touch of glow, this is the one.

Nyx Prismatic Eyeshadow in 'Girl Talk' 
I've actually be loving this lately for highlighting. It's a pretty pink toned champagne colour that really complements any pink makeup look you do. It also looks really nice if you're very fair skinned and have a hard time finding a highlight that isn't too dark.

Spring 2017 Project Pan!

Hey everyone! So I really enjoyed my Winter project pan and since I have SO many products in my collection that either need more love or need to be used up ASAP, I decided I'll be doing a project pan with a different selection of products every month.

Here's what I chose for Spring 2017!

Of course, I'm bringing back the Nyx Prismatic Eye shadow in 'Girl Talk', since that was the one product in my last project pan that was pretty neglected. Hopefully I can get some good use out of this one this time around!


The big one for this project pan is my Too Faced Chocolate Bar palette. This was my favourite palette EVER, but since I've purchased so many palettes in the past few months, I feel like this ones been pretty neglected, so my goal is to get some good use out of this and to (hopefully) on at least 3-4 shades.
This will probably be the easiest product in my project pan, since I've already hit major pan on this one. This is the Maybelline Fit Me powder, which I'd really like to completely use up since it's not my favourite face powder ever.
The last two items are my Nyx HD concealer and my Annabelle Big Show Mascara. I like both of these a lot, but don't use them as much as I should. I tend to reach for my Maybelline Fit Me concealer more than this Nyx one, so I'm going to work on using this one up for the next few months.
The Annabelle Big Show mascara is a really nice mascara that I actually have multiple back ups of, but I'd really like to finish it up (for the sake of decluttering a bit!).

What are you working on finishing up? Let me know!

Winter Project Pan Update!

 Hey everyone! So here is my update on my winter project pan!
So: I completely finished the Covergirl Ready Set Gorgeous Foundation and the Benefit Porefessional primer which I'm really happy about.
The Maybelline Fit Me concealer seems to be one of those products that never ends! I use it on the daily and it just never seems to run out! I do think I'm on the last few drops of it now though.
 I'm really happy with the progress I made on the Maybelline Blushed Nudes palette. While it doesnt look like much, I managed to hit pan on 2 more shades, which I think is pretty good. Forcing myself to use it more often also made me love it a lot more. This palette doesn't have the best reviews and I really don't know why because I really do think it's a great one overall.

One product it seemed really hard for me to make progress on was the Marcelle Kohl eyeliner, even though I was using it frequently and sharpening it as well. I realized pretty soon after though that the reason it never seemed to be getting smaller was because I actually have 2 of these and I've been using both of them unknowingly!
The one item that I made absolutely no progress with was my Nyx Prismatic Shadow in 'Girl Talk'. To be quite honest, I'm not even sure I used it at all. I find I get so caught up using my palettes I often forget to use my single eyeshadows, so I think that'll be my goal for Spring!

Have you used up any products lately? Let me know in the comments!

March Favourites!

 It's that time again; new month, new batch of products I've been loving. I tried out a lot of new products this month so I had a really hard time narrowing this list down to an acceptable size, but I decided to go with the products I've used on a near daily basis throughout the month of March.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz in Granite
I was on quite a brow product hunt last month. I wanted something that could effortlessly fill in sparse areas without making my brows look too dark or too clown-like. This product is honestly so fool proof and looks so great. You can build up the pigmentation as well, so you can choose to go for a natural, subtle look or a full on Instagram style brow all with one product!

Nyx Dewy Finish Setting Spray
As a setting spray, I thought this product was good, but not good enough to keep me using it on a daily basis. I recently started using this to dampen my Beauty Blender and my foundation and concealer have never looked better! It makes any product I put on my face look super flawless and decreases any cakey-ness that can happen.
Wet N' Wild Liquid Catsuit Matte Lipstick in 'Nudist Peach' 
This liquid lipstick, besides being super affordable, is really awesome. It applies a bit watery and at times streaky, but its easily built into an opaque, even coat and it has a fantastic lasting power. This shade in particular is so great for the spring and looks so nice paired with pink or peach toned eye looks. I'm in love!

Nyx Soft Matte Lip Cream in 'Stockholm'
Honestly, I'm sure if I look back in my monthly favourites posts, I'll probably see this exact product at least 3 or 4 times. This shade is my absolute perfect nude. It's extremely flattering, doesn't make me look dead and makes my teeth look super white. Bonus: it goes with any conceivable eye look, trust me on this one.
Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in 'Baci'
For days when I want to step outside my comfort zone a little bit, I've been going for this lip colour. It's a stunning mauvy grey type colour that is just so interesting to look at. This formula of liquid lipstick honestly blew my mind the first time I wore it. This stuff will not come off, trust me on this one. If ever you need a product that will stick around even while eating, drinking, kissing, etc. this is the one! 

Essence Gel Eyeliner in 'Blue Lagoon' 
I've probably also had this product in a monthly favourites before as well, but I had to bring it back again because there are no words to describe how great it is. This product honestly feels like a high end product you would happily pay $40 for. It just glides right on with the most incredible pigmentation. I put this in my waterline and not only did it stay put ALL day (at least 12 hours?), but it looked incredible. 
Physician's Formula Happy Booster Blush
I had this blush stored away in my collection for the longest time and for some unknown reason I just never really used it all that much. I decided a few weeks ago to give it another shot and I'm seriously so in love with the colour that it gives my cheeks. As much as this analogy is overused, it really does make your cheeks look like you just came inside from a cold, winter day. A super pretty pink flush!
Maybelline 'Fit Me!' Concealer
This is just a great drugstore concealer. You really cannot go wrong with this. It will cover up a multitude of sins, including my crazy dark under eye circles, without looking obvious or cakey. It could probably pass off as a high end concealer and no one would tell the difference. So, so good.

PROJECT PAN! (Winter 2016/17)

If there's something I learned from my no-buy back in the Fall, it's that I really do have a LOT of makeup, a lot of it that has been sitting around, unused or half used and forgotten.
That's why I decided I'm going to start my own Project Pan, to use up some of the products that need some loving/need to go.
So from now until March 20th, 2017, I'm going to be working on finishing up these products!
The products:
Maybelline 'The Blushed Nudes' palette
Benefit 'The Porefessional' Primer
Marcelle Kohl Eyeliner
Maybelline 'Fit Me' Concealer
Covergirl 'Ready Set Gorgeous' Foundation
Nyx Prismatic Eyeshadow in 'Girl Talk'

All of these are products that I love, but have either been a bit neglected in my routine, or have just been lingering around for way too long. So I chose them to encourage myself to put them to more use.
As you can see, I've already made a significant dent in this palette. My goal is to hit pan on at least 2-3 more shades though.
Realistically, do I expect to finish all of them up?
Definitely not, especially with the palette.
My main goal is to see a noticeable difference in the amount of product and maybe have finished up at least half of the products on my list.

Let the fun begin!

NOVEMBER FAVOURITES!

Can you believe it's already December? It's beginning to look a lot like..... exam season! Kidding, but not really. Hang in there students, the break is near! I can't wait to finally have more time to blog... November was a pretty brutal month for me in terms of school and time management!

This month was a really great one for me in terms of my makeup and skincare routine though. I just came out of a 4-ish month no-buy, which really renewed my perspective on using up my products and not buying more than I really need just because.

I also tried out so many new products, many of which I won't mention here (dedicated full reviews are on the way!), and I've discovered a ton of new favourites.
I went to the Lise Watier warehouse sale this past month and picked up their Blush Trio, and can we just talk about how pretty it is? I think its from an older collection, so I'm not sure if it's available any more, but I've been using it every day in November so I couldn't not share it. It gives the most perfect, winter rosy cheeks that I love.

Another thing I was on the hunt for this month was a new face powder, since I ran out of my beloved Rimmel 'Stay Matte'. I picked up Maybelline's Fit Me! Matte & Poreless Face Powder, and I've been loving it. I'm not sure if it's as good as the Rimmel one, but I've been using it every day and have no complaints at all. It mattifies and sets your face makeup without leaving your face looking powdery, and that's all I can ask for!
My favourite lip colour in November was hands down 'Pink Wink' from Maybelline. It's the coolest metallic rose colour in the most comfortable, long lasting formulation. I've never been a huge fan of the scent of Maybelline lipsticks, but this one doesn't bother me too much (maybe it's just because I love the shade so much, though!)

I've never been one to use setting sprays until I tried the Nyx Dewy Finish Long Lasting Setting Spray. This stuff has changed the game for me completely. It takes away any dryness or powdery finish and leaves your makeup looking like it just became one with your face. It's incredible.
I'm probably one of the biggest fans of L'Oreal's Infallible eye shadows, and this one in the shade 'Permanent Kaki' is definitely no exception. I've been stepping out of my comfort zone a lot lately in terms of eyeshadow and lipstick. A few months ago, I would have never thought I'd be wearing a shade like this on my eyes, but it's quickly become one of my favourites. It's a stunning metallic khaki colour that I honestly think would be flattering on just about any skin tone and any eye colour.

In a similar colour scheme, I've also been loving the Annabelle Smudgeliner in 'Cyber Jungle'. I've always been a huge fan of Annabelle's smudgeliners. They glide on extremely smoothly and pigmented. This one in particular is a khaki/taupe type colour that is suprisingly very pretty.

What did you love during the month of November?

October Favourites!

It's November!
Hi everyone! I apologize for my little break from the blogging world. I needed to put my focus 100% on my midterms, but now that those have been conquered, I'm back and excited to share what I have been loving all throughout the month of October!

October is my favourite month, mostly because it's my birthday month, but it has my absolute favourite weather as well. I am SO happy to be able to be wearing my huge cozy sweaters again.
Nyx Lip Lingerie in 'Ruffle Trim'
The amount of times I've been complimented on this lip colour blows my mind. It's a really pretty warm brown nude, which used to be somewhat out of my comfort zone, but I've been loving it lately.

Maybelline Fit me! Matte and Poreless face powder
Once my Rimmel Stay Matte powder ran out, I really needed a good, new mattifying powder, so I decided to give this one a shot. I'm not too sure if I like it more than the Rimmel one, but it makes my skin look so smooth and matte, without the powdery, cakey effect,

Too Faced Shadow Insurance
I've been wearing a lot more colourful and shimmery eyeshadows rhis past month, and I needed something I could depend on to keep everything in check. This is a great product to prevent creasing and make sure everything stays where you want it to while lasting all day. I'm using a deluxe sample size and it's nowhere even close to empty, and I've been using it every single day for over a month now!
Essence Pure Nude Highlighter in 'Be My Highlight'
I really wish I found this product sooner. This is the best everyday highlighter I have ever used! It looks so natural and glowy, and doesn't accentuate any texture. Plus, depending on how much you apply, you can go from a subtle daytime look to a disco ball kind of glow with ease. All that, AND it's so affordable! There's no excuse not to pick this up!

Essence Lash Princess False Lash Effect Mascara
This has been my go to mascara all month when I wanted a more dramatic effect with my lashes. It volumizes like no mascara I have ever used ever. It really does make your lashes stand out. I was so skeptical about if this product would be all that great considering how inexpensive it was, but I was very pleasantly surprised.

L'Oreal Infallible Eyeshadow in 'Amber Rush' 
I heard the hype over this eyeshadow for ages but never really was convinced enough to go pick it up until lately but oh my god, is this ever pretty. It shimmers like no eyeshadow I have ever used before, it's almost breathtaking when it hits the light. I'm so tempted to go buy more shades of it now, it's that gorgeous.

These were the products that I particularly loved in October. I'm so sad that it went by as fast as it did! I had a really great month, and a lovely 21st birthday.

Here's to a great November!

My 10 Fall Makeup Essentials

Hi everyone! Can you believe September is almost over? Was that the fastest month ever or what?

I really wanted to take a little time to talk about my essential, must have makeup once Autumn comes around. While I'm not too strict when it comes to sticking to "seasonally appropriate" makeup, Fall is definitely my favourite season, so I definitely take advantage of it when it comes to my makeup choices.

Here are the things that I think are definite must haves in your collection for the Autumn months!


1) A good under eye concealer/colour corrector

Ah yes, back to school season. Midterms await, meaning sleepless nights and under eye darkness galore. Having a good heavy duty under eye concealer, and a good colour corrector is essential in the Fall.
I recommend: Lancome 'Effacernes' Under Eye Concealer & Nyx Dark Circle Concealer/Corrector

2) A Cool Toned Nude Lipstick

When I think of Fall lipstick, I think of 2 things: a vampy wine colour, and a cool toned nude. So on days you don't quite want to go for an intense dark lip, this is a really flattering choice. Plus it also gives you extra freedom to get a bit more creative with your eyeshadow looks!
I recommend: Essence 'Cool Nude' Lipstick

3) A Vampy Dark Red Lip

I won't bore you to death with the same story over again, but I had been on the hunt for the perfect dark wine lip colour, and I found it with Nyx Soft Matte Lip Cream in 'Copenhagen'. It's perfect and stunning and flattering on all skin tones. That is all.


4) Duo Chrome Eyeshadow

I like going for more 'outside of the box' eyeshadow looks in the fall. While on a day to day basis, I tend to stick with my safe neutrals, I do also like to reach for some vibrant coppers, or some really cool duo chrome looks that just seem to look so much cooler in the Autumnal months.
I recommend: Urban Decay Eyeshadow in  'Lounge' (it's described as a brick red with a green shift, and it is my favourite thing ever)

5) A Super Dark Black Eyeliner

I adore lack eyeliner, but I find that a super, intense black liners look best in the colder months. And years later, I have yet to find an eyeliner blacker than Urban Decay's 24 Hour Glide On Pencil in 'Perversion'


6) A Warm Toned Blush 

I wear a lot of peach and baby pink blushes in the summer, but when it comes to fall and winter, I always go to a warmer blush to give that healthy "out in the cold" glow.
I recommend: Nyx HD Blush in 'Amber'

7) A Hydrating Foundation

When the weather cools down, my skin goes from combination to very dry. So I like a foundation that will keep my skin feeling hydrated and comfortable all day.
I recommend: Covergirl 'Ready Set Gorgeous' Foundation and Too Faced 'Born This Way' Foundation


9) Bolder Brows

I have natually thick brows, so I can get away with not doing much with them on a day to day basis with my lighter, more natural looks in the Summer. However I almost always fill them in during the Fall months, just because I love the look of bold brows with the more bold makeup looks that come during this time of year!
I recommend: Annabelle Skinny Brown Liner in Universal Ebony


10) Soft lips

Dry lips from the chilly weather paired with a vampy, dark matte lip is a disaster waiting happen. I take extra care to hydrate my lips as soon as the weather gets colder. I particularly love Burt's Bee's lip balms for this. I'm using one that's a coconut and pear flavour right now, and it is DIVINE.

Mini NYX Haul!

Hey everyone! So not too long ago, I went on a little road trip to Toronto and went to the NYX store which was super exciting for me. The NYX selection in the drugstores near me is pretty small and there are so many products I've wanted to pick up but just haven't been motivated enough to order them online (shipping to Canada is often crazy expensive and just not worth it).

Being able to go to an actual NYX store was such a treat because I could finally find the stuff I've wanted for a while now. I definitely had to restrain myself a bit though, because my mini haul could have become a huge, expensive haul very quickly. So even though I didn't get much, I'm pretty happy with my little selection of products!

What I picked up:
Lip Lingerie Liquid Lipstick in the shades "Exotic", "Ruffle Trim" and "Embellishment"
Dark Circle Concealer Correcteur
HD Blush in "Rose Gold"
Prismatic Eye Shadow in "Mermaid"
Let me know if you want full reviews, swatches or looks featuring any of these products in the comments below!

July Favourites 2016!

July went by way too fast. I seriously can't believe its already August... I feel like just yesterday I was writing about my favourite products of June! As fast as it went by though, I did find a lot of great products this month that have really changed up my makeup routine.
The first thing I've been obsessed with this week is Revlon's matte lipstick in 'Pink Pout'. In terms of drugstore lipsticks, I find that Revlon make some of the best. This is the perfect matte Barbie pink type colour that isn't drying, nor does it accentuate dryness or texture on the lips. I love it! 
I posted not too long ago about Sephora's 'My Beauty Notebooks' that I recently purchased. I've used them a lot this month, but the one in particular that I've been reaching for the most is the one called "Working it". It has exactly what I need for an every day look, with options to make it more nighttime friendly if I choose to. It has the perfect shades for a smokey eye or a brown, natural look. It also has the most perfect brow bone highlight shade that I'm OBSESSED with.
I've raved about the Nyx Prismatic eyeshadows over and over, but how can anyone blame me? They are hands down my favourite eyeshadow formulation in the drugstore. The one I've been loving this month is called 'Liquid Gold', which comes off a little more on the red side than a classic gold, but regardless, it is truly breath taking on the eyes. It looks like a foiled eyeshadow. As all of the other shadows, it is extremely pigmented, easy to blend and long wearing. I love wearing this all over the lid with 'Girl Talk' in the inner corners.  
I adore Essence. They have some crazy good products for such an affordable price point. I picked up the kajal pencil in the shade 'Teddy' mostly because I needed a good brown eyeliner and I was honestly blown away by this. It applies so smoothly, which you wouldn't expect from a $2 wooden pencil. The colour itself is a metallic brown which is seriously stunning. It is not the longest lasting eyeliner I own, but it still holds on for quite a while.
 I've always had issues with face sunscreens. They're either way too greasy, they break me out, or both. When I saw this in store, I knew I had to give it a try because the Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration sunscreen is holy grail to me. And behold, another holy grail product for me from this line. It's perfect! It's moisturizing, has that great scent, doesn't break me out, works perfectly under makeup, has SPF 30... What else could I need? The bottle also has a really nice pump too!
Early this month, I was on the hunt for a good body butter because my skin is dry as ever, and dry skin is not a good look in shorts and dresses. I was initially going to pick up one of the Soap & Glory ones, but I had some second thoughts because $20 is a bit pricy for a product I knew I'd go through super quickly. I picked up this one by Bath Retreat in the scent Vanilla Souffle and I'm honestly pretty addicted to it. I was worried that the scent would be a little sickly and overly sweet but it isn't! It is a very sweet scent, but it's also very sexy. Besides that, it does the job! My skin is so incredibly soft since I've been using this! It's amazing to use after shaving your legs.

Those are all the products I've been loving this week! Let me know in the comments what your favourite product(s) were this month!

June Favourites!

Is it just me, or did this month go by unbelievably fast? I cannot believe June is already over! This month was great for me in terms of beauty and makeup. I've tried a lot of new products, found tons of new favourites, and I've started testing out lots of new products to review soon! However, there can only be so many products in my monthly favourites, so here are the ones that were the best of the best for me this month! Interestingly enough, all my favourites this month are from the drugstore, so not only are they great products, but they're also affordable!

L'Oreal Lumi Liquid Glow Illuminator in 'Ice'

I was on the hunt for a good drugstore highlighter and let me tell you right now: the selection isn't huge. I was pretty drawn to the L'Oreal Lumi line and I picked up one of their Liquid Glow Illuminators in the shade 'Ice'. I'm planning on doing a full review on this product very soon, so I won't say much now but I will say that this is a really great liquid highlight. I was a little unsure as to how it would look on me, but it looked pretty great in the end!

Physician's Formula Touch of Glow Foundation

I have a full review on this foundation that I will be posting tomorrow, but to keep it brief; this is a great foundation for the summer. It is glowy and your skin looks very radiant using it. As per most of Physician's Formula complexion products, the shade selection is unfortunately (very) limited, but if you are not extremely fair/extremely dark, you can make this work for you.


L'Oreal Colour Riche Eyeshadow Quad in 'Stacked Heels'

This month, I was on the hunt for the perfect lilac coloured eyeshadow (but I was also on a budget, so I hit the drugstore). I picked up one of L'Oreal's eyeshadow quads in 'Stacked Heels' because it looked the closest to the colour I was going for. This is a really nice quad. Since it is drugstore, it isn't the most pigmented of eyeshadows, but if you pair it with an eyeshadow primer, it looks great.


NYC High Definition liquid eyeliner pen

I must admit, I really suck at liquid eyeliner. I know they say practice makes perfect, but I've gotten so comfortable with my pencil eyeliner routine, I've never really gotten around to getting in that practice anyway. However after hearing a few people talk about this product, I figured I'd give it a try. I mean, its $3, what have I got to lose? This product is SO easy to use and it looks really really nice. So if you are like me, and are less than talented with traditional liquid eyeliner, give this a try.


Annabelle Skinny Brow Liner

I believe that Annabelle is a brand that we only have here in Canada, but they really are great. Their products are affordable and and really really good. Everyday this month, I've been using their Skinny Brow Liner to fill in and shape my brows. It is extremely easy to use and has just the right amount of pigment. I also really appreciate that it's very easy to fix any mistake you might make while applying it, but once it sets, it wont budge.


Nyx Prismatic Shadow in Liquid Gold

Nyx's Prismatic eyeshadows are simply amazing. They are so pigmented, I can't get over it. The one in particular that I was loving is called 'Liquid Gold' and it honest to God looks like, you guessed it, liquid gold. So if you love gold eyeshadow as much as I do, you need this in your life.

Essence 'I Love Stage' Eyeshadow Base

What's better than a good eyeshadow base? A good eyeshadow base that costs less than $5. You heard me. This eyeshadow base is seriously holy grail to me at this point. It has a concealer-like colour to it, so it will cover up any broken vessels or areas you may want to conceal on your eyelids. It also keeps your eyeshadow from creasing, falling out AND it increases the pigmentation. And all this for $3.49. I mean, what else could you even ask for?

L'Oreal 'Eye Defense' Eye Cream

My dark under eye area is the bane of my existence. However, instead of just complaining about it and trying to conceal it, I've decided to add a good eye cream to my skincare routine to keep the area hydrated and hopefully diminish some darkness. I haven't noticed much yet in terms of making the area less dark, but I do notice that my under eye area is much more hydrated and my under eye concealer looks so much better now.

TV Favourite: Pretty Little Liars

PLL is back! Season 7 has just begun and as usual, I'm hooked. I've been following this show for years and years now, and this is it; it's the final season. I'm hoping for it all to be tied together nicely. 2 episodes into it, and I am already addicted. Can't wait to see how it ends!

YouTube Favourite: ReadySetGlamour

This month, I've been getting back into watching YouTube videos and Michelle honestly makes some of the best beauty videos out there. Her reviews are so honest and her videos are really entertaining and informative. She's also so involved with her viewers on Snapchat and Twitter! Definitely check her out!

Let me know what you were loving in the month of June!
