Holiday Sets 2015: Too Faced Le Petit Tresor


Yes, I missed you guys last week as well. I dunno, but the closer it gets to the wedding date, the worse my mood gets, cause I feel like I’m running out of time to get things done. And truth be told, I’m really really hung up on time.

Luckily, I had some neat little goodies to play around with so that, at least temporarily, my mood looks up again.

Holiday Sets 2015: Too Faced Le Grand Chateau


This the one of three Too Faced holiday Sets. The largest one, Le Grand Palais is the one that I reviewed earlier this week and is a Sephora exclusive. Le Grand Chateau is the middle sized one for lack of a better description, and is the only one that is available at Sephora, Ulta and on Too Faced own website. La Petite Maison is the smallest of the three and an Ulta exclusive. I’m super happy that this one is widely available to everyone since the Sephora exclusive was so dismally disappointing.

Vasanti Cosmetics Blushes


As promised I’ve got some Vasanti blushes to review for you guys. I have holiday posts that I have to get out, however, I know that if I don’t do this now it’s gonna wind up in the vault and you guys won’t see it until next year sometime. I got two of the cream blushes to try out and they sent me an additional powder as a freebie for the shipping issues that I’d had because of Amazon.

Holiday Sets 2015: Urban Decay Vice 4



More holiday stuffs!

I’m just go right on record and say that I like the Vice 4 palette way more than last years 3 and I’d bought both the regular and the limited edition one. I didn’t even bother to do a post for the limited edition one even though I took photos because it was just so epically disappointing. Do I like it more than 2? Nope, that one is still my favourite.

Holiday Sets 2015: Too Faced Le Grand Palais


The Too Faced Christmas in Paris holiday goodies out already on the website, so right after you’re done with this post, skip on over and snag yourself a few things, because most of the really interesting items aren’t even that expensive this year.

This particular set is a Sephora exclusive, though Too Faced has their own version on the site (Le Grand Chateau), but that version is reminiscent of last year’s La Belle Carrousel what with all the pull apart bits.

Holiday Sets 2015: Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit



Holiday sets are here. Wow, is it really that time of year already? Or following the trend lately, has everything just started earlier than it did last year?

Whatsoever the case, there are a bunch of holiday sets and palettes making the beauty rounds at the moment.

Sleek Barekissed Illuminators


@SleekMakeup #BareKissedIluminator


Do you have any bloody idea how much happier my happy place is right now?

First Sleek gives me cream blushes, now liquid illuminators? I must have been really really good this year.

Sleek launched their very first liquid illuminators a few weeks ago and of course, yours truly had to have them right? Each of these will cost you $13.49 and you’ll get just slightly over an ounce. There are four colours that are named after various places, and unlike the way that you can sometimes tell why a thing was named in a certain way, I have no idea about these.  The particular destination names don’t really harken to the colours one bit. With maybe the exception of Pompeii which conjures volcanoes, ash and petrified bodies. I’m pretty sure that wasn’t what they were going for, but thank you anyway Anthropology.

Vasanti Cosmetics Cover-Up Liquid Foundation+Concealer


The star of today’s post. As I told you guys in my last post, to ensure that I received the right colour and didn’t have to send stuff all the way back to Canada, I consulted with Jignasha to get it just right. And get it right she did. The shade that  received was V12 which is described as a deep golden.

I Finally Got Some!!



Vasanti Cosmetics! What did you think I was talking about??

I’ve been stalking this brand for literal years. I wasn’t sure what to get, you know what would fit me. But I subscribed to Boxycharm last month (which btw, is so so sooo much better than Glossybox, as much as I love Glossy), and they sent subscribers a whole bunch of coupon codes and Vasanti was one of them (at 30% off!) so I took the plunge

Sleek MakeUp Nautical Collection.



Every once in a while, not very often thank goodness, Sleek debuts products that I either don’t care for, or absolutely loathe.

The Nautical Collection falls square in the middle of those feelings. It’s not abysmally bad, nor is it gush-worthy. First off, it seemed really random. They didn’t announce it, I went on the website to get a new powder, and there it was with very little fanfare. The individual items were available for purchase, but it was also available in a handy dandy little set for about $6 less than purchasing separately.

Becca Backlight Priming Filter


I got the Becca Backlight primer cause I’m Becca obsessed and well, it was new and I wanted to try it. It’s a radiance primer and generally speaking, I don’t care for most of them because I think they make me look super greasy. But this is Becca right? Where subtlety is the name of the game. Besides which, the only other radiance primer that I’ve ever liked, the one from Japonesque (review here), I managed to break it. Yeah.

This one sort of sent me into a tizzy when I saw the frosted glass bottle, because for real? It’s only a matter of time before I break this sucker too, I just know it.

Ulta Matte Lip Creams


I have something of a love affair with matte lip products, but I have an absolute obsession with lip creams. I’m not sure why. Maybe it’s because most of them, when they dry do not budge, and although I love makeup, I’m a lazy makeup kinda gal. Apply it and forget it. So whenever a new matte lip cream hits the airwaves, I’m usually there at the head of the line trying to snag as many as possible. To this day though, NYX soft matte lip creams are my hands down favourites, none of the higher end brands have been able to match it in wear time, wear comfort or colour as far as I’m concerned.

Sephora Colourful Cheek Ink Gels


I purchased these on a bit of a whim, not really expecting too much out of it. If you shop Sephora brand products, that’s the attitude you need to go in with, cause their products are so hit or miss that expectations can become frustrating.

Anywhoo, I spied these on the website when I was getting a new Fresh Lotus Youth Preserve. They had just launched, like that morning (at like 3am, I love how Sephora quietly debuts things) and I had a gift card with left over money so I figured what the hey? If it doesn’t work, Sephora has a stellar return policy and they’re only $14.

New Becca Mineral Blushes!


I’ve become a true enthusiast of Becca cosmetics. They’re so flawless and subtle, it’s hard not to love pretty much everything that the brand debuts. The only thing that generally stops me is that it’s also pricey.
