HAIR | Helping my Sensitive Scalp with Mayraki
Cosmetic Proof
by
2d ago
Press samples Back in December, I was introduced to the haircare brand Mayraki and was a bit hesitant to feature the brand because the product and customer service reviews were very mixed, but I have spent so much time using and enjoying the products I was sent that it seemed a waste to not let you all know how they worked out for me so just for a moment, we are going to isolate the product from the reviews and see how they did!   Mayraki are probably most well-known for their anti-grey treatments, but as I don't have too many grey hairs yet (I think I have six that I keep pulling ..read more

NAILS | Morgan Taylor Lace is More Collection #CBBxManiMonday
Cosmetic Proof

Press samples It's not often that I get to feature a new to me nail polish brand here so it is with great pleasure that I bring to you Morgan Taylor! I have seen Morgan Taylor only through a select number of Canadian retailers, but I was recently given the opportunity to try out their new Lace is More Collection for Spring and I could not have been more delighted with the quality!   What I love about this collection is how bright the pastels are! I'm typically not a huge pastel person because I don't find the paleness of the shades that flattering on me, but when they are bright like t ..read more

SHEET MASK | Lush Queen Bee Sheet Mask (Both Amazing and Horrifying At The Same Time!)
Cosmetic Proof
by
6d ago
  Purchased by me Last week, my friend Gerry and I did our yearly shopping/catch up event where we allow ourselves to splurge a bit after going on a low buy after the Holidays. The shopping area changes from year to year, but this year we felt like staying Downtown near everything. Our first stop was Lush in Pacific Centre as I had 10 black tubs to return (5 for Gerry and 5 for me) so that we could each pick up a new Fresh Face Mask (I picked up the Enzymatic Cleanser) as well as oogle some other goodies! Many of their new and cute Mother's Day launches were out with one of them being ..read more

MAKEUP | NYX Cosmetics Duck Plump High Pigment Lip Gloss
Cosmetic Proof
by
6d ago
Purchased by me Some of you may have seen the marketing for the new NYX Cosmetics Duck Plump High Pigment Lip Gloss and I will say now that it had nothing to do with my decision to pick them up! If you haven't seen anything, it involved many men thinking that they could use this product to plump up their own genitalia. WHERE this marketing idea came from, I have no idea since literal humour like this is often seen as a bit cheap, but hey, it got everyone talking! Coming in 18 shades (though it says only 9 on the Canadian website vs. the US website), these lip glosses are highly pigmented ..read more

Press samples  So, I just started therapy regularly to deal with work things and had a productive therapy session today where we had a little breakthrough on how I process negative thoughts and it gave me some hope for the future. I went to my first session last August which I was nervous about, but found it helpful AND I found a therapist I liked all on my first try! I went for another session in October to work through some fears about my flight to Paris and then didn't really think about booking with her again until last month when things at work started to escalate. After seeing her ..read more

Gifted service Last month I had the pleasure of visiting is. Salon in Yaletown to experience their Olaplex Treatment. This is an add-on treatment to any service you may be receiving and it promises to repair and leave your hair super soft and shiny through a couple of hair washes!   I was greeted by my stylist Rebecca right at the entrance and immediately, I loved how open the space was combined with the chill vibe of the salon. I am already thinking about my next appointment which might be extensions and colour! My hair was first brushed out and shampooed kind of like cleansing t ..read more

NAILS | Simple Easter Nail Art #CBBxManiMonday
Cosmetic Proof
by
1w ago
Press samples I feel like the long weekend kind of crept up on me and I never realized it was the Easter weekend! A lot has been happening in my life and though I am legitimately scared for my mental state the next few months, at least I feel like I have some resources in my back pocket to rely on.    Today's nail art was inspired by @studio.b.beautyco and what I loved about it was how simplified the Easter bunny was because I wasn't really in the mood to paint a full bunny head. The dots were perfect and exactly what I was looking for! On My Nails: (Base Coat) OPI Nail E ..read more

SHEET MASK | Fan Beauty Secret Black Spruce Hydra-Filler Black Mask
Cosmetic Proof
by
1w ago
Purchased by me This week has been an interesting one as I have been very focused on the topic of mental health and though I hear about it all the time and understand how important it is, I never realized how much WORK it was to stay on top of it. It's like exercise or making something a habit and it's not easy. I won't get into the whys of why I have suddenly decided to start taking care of my brain more (at least not until it's less fresh), but I am going to be dealing with unpleasantness for probably the next year and I don't know how I'll do, but I guess I will take it day by day.   ..read more

  Purchased by me Let me tell ya, these nails look so much better in these photos than in real life! I was looking through my collection for a really bright green and honestly, while most of my nail polish is organized by colour and in drawers, there are still around 100 bottles of random brands that I don't know where to put and it was in my search for bright green that I came across this mini SCENTED bottle of Sephora by OPI in the shade Watermelon (yes, it does still smell like watermelon once you apply it and for days after too!). I was originally wanting to find some yellow flower ..read more

Press samples I was so proud of myself for getting these nails done two weeks in advance! I really wanted any excuse to use this gorgeously bright green from Biosculpture as it is one of my favourite ones to bring out for Spring and Summer. I mean, look at it! How can it NOT make you happy?   After I dotted on my flowers, I felt like a matte top coat was the perfect way to give this mani a 70s vibe! Super easy to do and with a never ending variety of colour combinations! On My Nails: (Base Coat) OPI Nail Envy Pink to Envy* (Base Colour) Biosculpture Lyrics of a Lily* (Fl ..read more
