If you’re like me, you spend far too much time stalking the Instagram pages for new makeup releases. I’ve seen a few upcoming holiday products that have me a bit excited. So far there is one palette that I know I will pick up, on launch day I will be ready.Read More
I’ve had this palette for a while and haven’t played with it nearly enough. It reads to me as a neutral palette with pops of purple and deeper burgundy tones. Which isn’t generally what you see in a neutral palette with accent colours. So the shades in themselves are a bit different to the standard selections you typically find in palettes of this nature.Read More
We are fast approaching fall, so things are going to change. No more hot humid sun packed days or warm evening strolls.Like the changes to the season, I want to make some changes in my life.
Since I've started working again a lot of things that I used to keep up with have fallen to the wayside, like my health.
So Sephora is having a sale near the end of August, which is not usually a time that they have a sale, so I’m not mad at it. Though I do hope that they still have the November sale. It’s the start of Christmas season in my head, Black Friday, VIB sale they’re tied together in my mind.
This post has been long overdue, and not just because I haven't put up a post in months. I took these photos way back in January with the intent to publish the post in February. That never happened? Why you may ask, well you see the thing is I didn't know what to write so I didn't write anything.Read More
My Favourite addition to my winter wardrobe this year has been my knitwear sweaters from Zara. I picked them up in three different styles just because I loved them. It was love at first feel. There are a few reasons why I really like these sweaters.Read More
The other day I as I was going home, I sat on the subway surrounded by a sea of black and grey when I saw this bright robins egg blue handbag. It was such a contrast because everywhere you looked it seemed that all the colour had been leached out, so the sudden appearance of colour caught me by surprise. I loved it though, I felt that it instantly lifted my mood.Read More
Everyday there’s a new makeup product being launch, released or revamped. So often times they just seem to run together with few things to distinguish them from the next. There have been a few products that have caught my attention though, quite a few of the new or upcoming releases from Nars have really sparked my interestRead More
So after the Houglass post where I curated a palette using their Ambient Lighting Powders, I don’t really have high hopes or expectations for Tarte. I’m hoping that with their wider product range, and colour options, that the selection process will be better. The Tarte face products that I’ve used so far, I’ve really enjoyed.Read More
For the past three years, Hourglass as released a holiday palette that combines some of their best selling ambient face powders, blushes, bronzers and highlighters. And for the past three years I’ve passed on each palette because the shade selection wasn’t suitable for my deeper skin tone. I would love to purchase one, but for the price it doesn’t make sense. I’m not paying that much money for minimal product that doesn’t even show up on my skin or looks ashy and doesn’t compliment it in any way. No ma’am, not doing it.Read More
It’s not something that I’ve talked about here on my blog explicitly, though I’ve mentioned in a round about way in various posts. As a woman of colour it’s so frustrating to hear that a new product as launched, get excited about it and then realize that it most likely won’t work with your skin tone. Many of the mainstream brands seem to want to cater to only a select group of people even though you have millions of consumers that don’t fit in the narrow range that they consistently gear products toward.Read More
