I'm taking a little break but I will be back with new blog posts March 2nd.
Valentines Day is also coming up so I hope you guys have a great Valentines Day! and if you don't have a special someone celebrate with friends/family or celebrate with yourself treat yourself to something special!
Happy Sunday to you all. I hope everyone is having a great weekend! Today I'm going to be sharing a review with you guys on Dior's Milk Cleanser. I have been using this for so many months now I have lost count lol.
FollowDior Gentle Milk Cleanser is as described by Sephora a milk cleanser formulated to to give fresh and glowing skin. While gently removing make up and impurities from the skin. This cleanser is great for dry or sensitive skin.
For me when I first tried this cleanser I actually didn't like it and stopped using it for awhile. I didn't like the fragrance smells which I think is sometimes strong and I wasn't used to this type of cleanser.
After a few months passed I gave this another try and I loved it. To use this product you message a few pumps into the skin then rinse off or remove with a cotton pad. I used to rinse this off so maybe that is why I didn't think this was getting the job done in cleaning my skin. Not until I started using a cotton pad to remove the cleanser did I notice the dirty that this cleanser was actually removing I was surprised and impressed.
Even though this is recommend for dry or sensitive skin I still think this works for my combo skin. I love the milky/silky texture of this product and how lightweight it is. This truly makes my skin feel hydrated and good after I used it.
Now for the cons, I don't like that it smells like a perfume bottle and I feel you do need a few pumps more then 3 for the entire face. You can use this on the eyes I wouldn't recommend this for the eyes, although some people think it's gentle enough for the eyes, I personally didn't think so. However this is something I would purchase again.
Hey everyone welcome back to my blog. Today's post is a makeup tutorial on a smokey green eye look I did using Anastasia Beverly Hills eye shadows. I actually havent used my ABH Palettes in a long time so it was fun to bring them out and play.
This video is super quick so sit back and relax and watch my tutorial!
I have been wanting to try something from Kim Kardashian West's Cosmetic line for the longest time now and I finally bought something from her line. Recently maybe about a month ago she came out with a new product her Ultralight Beam Duo which is a Lip Gloss and Loose Pigment set. This is what I will be reviewing today.
This set includes a high shine gloss and a loose matching powder as described by the site. Described by the website the powder gives a blinding glow and can be used alone or mixed with a blush or highlight. The lip gloss description I feel is lacking it's kind of points out the obvious that it's a gloss to be used alone or with lipstick and liner.
The Ultralight Beam Duo that I decided to purchase was Copper. I went with this because I think it would be the most flattering on my skin tone. Rose Gold as well as Bronze also looks like great shades as well for POC and I might want to try them in the future. One Duo cost $32.00 US or you can purchase the whole collection for $160.00 US. Shipping took forever almost a month but I feel because this was launch around the holidays I guess they had tons of orders. I feel like shipping for Kylie Cosmetics was faster.
In the Pigment you get 0.075oz. My pigment actually was open a little bit and some actually fell out, that was disappointing. However I think the Copper shade is very nice, it has a lovely sparkle to it. I have only used this on my eyes but this is an all over product as mentioned before. I just feel as a highlight it's to dark for me but I will give it a try with blush. I use this product wet with Make Up For Ever Mist & Fix. This prevents fall out and makes the pigment more vibrant, when you use this pigment wet you definitely see the difference between it wet and dry. The gloss is my fave I have been using this every day. I'm already 1/4th into the product. In the gloss you get 0.123oz. The gloss as a beautiful shine and texture. It's not over glossy and you don't need to use a lot of product to build up shine, nor is it sticky. They don't mention on the site what contents are in the gloss and I wish they did as I forgot to check the packaging but I feel like this gloss also makes my lips feel super soft when I wear it. My only wish is that the gloss came in a bigger size. Have you tried anything from KKW Beauty?
New Year's Eve is just a few short days away I hope you all have a wonderful and safe New Year's Eve. Here is a makeup look I created in this tutorial I will show you how you can get this Glam look yourself!
First up is the Sol De Janerio Brazilian Bum Bum Cream, I got this in gratis and I loved it. I use this as hand cream it really makes my hands soft. when I wear this sometimes I have been ask what perfume I'm wearing and I tell them it's actually my hand cream lol. This I would for sure repurchase has I already have. I have bought the holiday set which comes with three creams and I keep one in bag and one that I use at home and then the other one I have as a back up.
Carols Daughter Sacred Tiare Leave In ConditionerI think worked well with my hair. It made by hair light weight, wasn't heavy and lasted a good amount of time. This is the first time I have ever tried a liquid leave - in conditioner and I don't think it will be the last. I would by this again.
Fresh Peony Face Cleanser is next up. I liked this cleanser I didn't know if this would even work. I don't think it totally changed my skin but I do feel like it cleaned by skin well and added a glow. I used this cleanser on it's own or sometimes with my Clarisonic. I don't think I would buy this as when I got this I received this as gratis. I feel $56 is too much for a cleanser.
GHD Heat Protect Spray is for sure something I would never repurchase. I don't understand why companies make heat protecting sprays that make your hair wet it's annoying and you have to wait for the spray to dry before you can style your hair. I really did not like this at all and I didn't like the smell. I really did not like this.
Macadamia Healing Oil Spray is one of my fave products I really love this. I have been using this for years. I only use this when I need it and I feel like it gives my hair life. Especially if my hair is looking dry and dull in-between washes, this just give my hair life. I really love this product and I have already repurchased this in a duo set with the Deep Repair Hair Mask. If I see this at Winners I will by this there other wise I normally by this when I see deals like for example I repurchased mine on Haute Look.
Too Faced Born This Way Concealer is actually one of my new fave concealers I think it goes on smooth and blends into my skin so well. The applicator is also really good. I think this concealer add just the right amount of brightness to my skin but still looks natural. I have the shade Dark which is my perfect match. I got this in gratis so I didn't purchase this but I for sure I'm going to get a new one of this after I finish up my other concealer.
Last we have two cleansing waters. the first one is Garnier Micellar WaterI really love this and have repurchased this a few times. I feel it'sgentle enough for me to use since I have sensitive eyes. It doesn't have a strong smell and removes my makeup well. This is a repurchase. If you wear waterproof makeup by the one with the blue cap as that removes waterproof mascara like a dream!
Last is Sephora Triple Action Cleansing Water. This is not something I liked. It removed my makeup well however the smell was to strong and it irritated my eyes when ever I would use this. They need a more gentle version of this for people with sensitive eyes. Otherwise this was great but for the fact that it's not gentle enough for me I will not buy this again.
Christmas is only 11 days away can you believe it! It is coming around the corner fast. I love making wish list on things that I want I never really end up getting them unless I buy it myself lol but it's fun to imagine.
Laura Mercier Face Illuminator Powder in Indiscretion has been on my wish list for a long time these highlighters are so pretty I really need to pick this up.
Nars NARSissist Wanted Eye Shadow palette was recommend by one of my fave YouTuber and I trust her recommendations so I really want to give this a try as I have never tried Nars eye shadows and I have never been interested in there shadows until now.
Hourglass Ambient Strobe Lighting Powder is another one that has been on my list forever I used this a lot of clients in makeup appointments when I worked at Sephora. It always looks gorgeous on any skin tone the shade I used the most and want myself is Euphoric.
Farmacy Honey Potion Renewing Mask is on my list because Farmacy claims that this mask will help with dull and uneven skintone and I really like mask that help to add a glow and brighten up the skin.
Natasha Denona Chroma Crystal Top Coat in Bronze is up next this top coat looks so pretty and I have always wanted to try this brand which is also recommended by my fave YouTuber.
Natasha Denona Holiday Eye Shadow Palette in Joya is also on my list I really want to try her shadows and I think this palette is prefect for me and I love shadows in these colours.
Charlotte Tilbury is a brand in general that I have wanted to try for a long time.
I have two palette that I placed on my list the first is limited edition and is called the Instant Eye Palette and then next The Vintage Vamp, which in more up my ally in colour selection but the Instant Eye Palette as well has a nice selection on shades.
Birkin Brown is on my list I have tried this once before and loved it!
Last is the Magic Cream the item I want the most. I haven't seen one bad review on this product as well this is another item that was recommend and and used all the time by my fave YouTubers.
I also would love to try the KKW Beauty Powder Contour Kit in Dark as well as the Crystal Gardenia in Citrus as I love Citrus fragrance scents and I have heard good this about her fragrances so I would really love to try this.
That is it for my Christmas Wish List list I do have other stuff I would love to get like a new bedroom set or to get the couch that I have in my room thrown out and set that area up as a place where I can do my makeup as well relax and read. I also would love to get the Ancestry DNA Kit and test out my DNA I think that would be so cool and fun to learn more about the sides of my background that I don't know.

So my VIB purchases from Sephora finally came in last week it has never taken this long for me to get an order from Sephora. I was annoyed that it took this long. In my order I bought 2 palettes from Huda Beauty so check out the makeup look I did using them.
Goof Proof Brow Pencil from Benefit is my favorite brow pencil so I purchased this because I needed to replenish as I have finished my old brow pencil. I just love the way this is shaped and the formula it gilds onto my brows but it's not to creamy or to stiff and doesn't dry out. Some brow pencils I also feel like over time they become hard this doesn't.
The Boscia Charcoal Sheet Mask I have used before but I couldn't remember if I liked it so I wanted to give this another try although it doesn't have a overall good rating online. Then I also got the Glam Glow Bubble Sheet Mask this has been on my Sephora wish list and I finally put it in my cart. I can't wait to try this :)
Last from skin care I purchased the Saturday Skin Sheet Mask set I randomly saw this brand and was interested. They don't have a lot of products on the Sephora site but I got this because it helps to brighten the skin. So far I have only tried one mask from the set and I liked it but the sheet mask i feel had to much liquid in the packaging. It made it hard to get off the protector before I applied the mask to my face.
With my Beauty Insider points I got the tray it's so cute, I think it was 250 points. I wish I could have got two.
I like NudestixI think they have great product. I have been dying to get this shade from there matte lip collection. It has become one of my new favorite nudes. This is called Greystone, they have a few more nudes I still want to pick up.
I have used Hourglass Ambient Lighting powders on clients all the time when I did Custome Makeovers at Sephora. I really like their powders because it gives a nice glow to the skin and its natural. I picked up Dim Light but next I want to get Ambient Strob Light because I also use to mix Euphoric with Dim Light on put it on clients it always looked so beautiful.
Brazilian Bum Bum Cream from Sol De Janeiro I received in gratis when I worked at Sephora and now I have finished it so I decided to get the Holiday pack since I really liked it. I don't use it as an all over body lotion I use it just for my hands. It smells so good and makes my hands feel so soft and smooth.
Last I purchased the Huda Beauty Obsession Palettes I was on the fence about buying these palettes as the other times I bought her stuff it was before I knew about the drama with her brand and discriminating against people of darker complexions and also gay people. I'm still on the fence a bit because I feel I haven't seen or heard her say out of her own mouth saying discriminating things towards people. But I'm not going to go into this as this would take forever to explain but you can google the brand and see what I'm talking about. As for the palettes the pigmentation is really good. I have tried almost all the shadows in the Warm Palette on the right and I have tried two shadows from the Eletric Palette on the left. I will give a full review at a later date. Let me know if you have any opinions on this brand, I would like to know what you guys think.

Christmas is pretty much one month away. And last night why'll I was up late doing some online Christmas gift shopping a saw a cute pink Christmas Tree on Charming Charlie's website and this made me want to purchase my own Christmas Tree this year.
I currently live at home with my family so I actually don't have a tree as we have a family tree. However in the recent years I have stopped helping with the set up of the tree not because I don't want to help but because I'm busy with work and the tree set up just has always been falling on days when I'm at work. As well whenever I help my Mother put up the tree she is always moving around the ornaments I put on the tree which is annoying. SO this year I have my own tree!
So here are the details on my tree. I got this pink tree from Canadian Tire by Noma for $34.99 on sale. This is a table top tree standing at 3-ft tall. It's super light weight and was easy to carry out the store. So if you don't drive don't worry this is not heavy to carry. The tree also comes with lights already attached. The lights comes in a soft white or you can set them on a colourful theme as well you can use both settings and the light will change from a soft white to colourful lights. At first I didn't think the lights worked as when I first turn them on it took about 2 minutes for them to warm up and work. This tree comes with a warranty just in case of any defect.
The pearl and bead garland I got from Canadian Tire, like everything in this post. Canadian Tire has so many great selections every year. This garland is made by Canvas which comes with 6-ft of garland for $9.99. At first I didn't know if this would fit my tree and I was going to buy two but I decided to just get one and it fits. I only wish it was one foot longer, then it would be perfect.
Next up are my ornaments both are from Trim Ornaments bought at Canadian Tire and you get 12 in a pack at $4.00 each. I was going to make my tree just white and silver but I saw that they also had a gold version of the sliver ornaments so I decided to get them as well. When I going shopping for a project I like to write out a list and have a picture in my mind of what I want the outcome to be. I think this is also true for planning out your tree you want to make sure you get decorations that fit together.
Last and not least is the topper
This topper is also made by Canvas like the ornaments for $5.49 and it is a silver with glitter. It's actually a ornament but when I saw this I thought it would make a great topper for my tree.
If you live in Canada go to Canadian Tire for your Christmas needs they have so much nice stuff!
How will you decorate your Christmas Tree this year?
