Drunk Elephant Lala Retro™ Whipped Cream

It’s kind of funny that no matter how much skincare stuff I have, I always seem to finish up a whole whack of products at the same time.  I don’t know how I always manage to do that, but I do.  EVERY.SINGLE.TIME.  The good news about doing that is that it generally allows me to be able to try out something new and switch up my whole skincare routine.  As I started coming to the end of my Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Oil-Free Gel Cream, I decided that rather than just buy a new bottle, it was time for something fresh and new.  Enter Drunk Elephant Lala Retro™ Whipped Cream ($75 CAD for 50 ml /1.69 fl. oz.).

Purchased by Me

With warmer weather now being a part of my reality, I am always looking for ways to simplify my makeup routine.  I still want to look as good, if not better, than I always do, but I just want it to be easier.  I don’t want to spend hours putting on a full-face of makeup only to have it look like crap by the time I reach the office.  So I have been testing out a variety of products to see just what will find it’s way onto my new simplified summer makeup routine.  One of those products is none other than the Milk Makeup Supernova Holographic Stick ($34 CAD).

Hey, everyone.  Sorry for the long absence from blogging lately, but life has been just a little bit hectic.  Ok, a lot hectic.  If I’m being honest, and I always try to be honest, my blogging inspiration has been flagging a little late.  Ok, so it’s been flagging a lot lately.  Le sigh!  In any case, I’ve been working out just what direction I want Beauty, Brains + to move in, and what that will look like.  While I don’t have it all quite figured out just yet, I am making steady progress on figuring it all out.

In other news, I am moving!  By the time this post goes live, I will be all moved into my brand new house.  Well mostly moved in, because all of the furniture is still in storage until July 7th!  But at least my bed is here…and my clothes, computer, tv, and makeup.  Priorities people.  The whole building a house thing has been an incredibly long process, so I’m really happy to finally be living in it.  I’ll be blogging about the whole buying a new build home process sometime later this summer.

Blogging is going to slowly return to normal in the coming weeks!  Thanks for sticking with me, and reaching out to find out what’s going on.

New Ultra HD Products from MAKE UP FOR EVER

MAKE UP FOR EVER is one brand that never fails to disappoint.  I don’t think I have ever come across any of their products that fails to do exactly what it’s supposed to do.  So it’s no surprise that when it was announced that new Ultra HD Products were being released to compliment the ever popular Ultra HD Foundation, that the new products immediately made it to the top of my ‘must try’ list.

Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Volume II Eye Shadow Palette

 

Back in December when I was in New York with my cousin Taj, I picked up the Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Volume II Eyeshadow Palette ($47 CAD).  We spent a lot of time in various Sephora stores while we were there and at that time, I was able to swatch this palette that I had been eyeing online, but wasn’t yet available in store in Canada.  I fell in love with the palette and bought it, even though the exchange rate was a killer.  But really, how was I supposed to resist this crease-free eyeshadow palette with eight cool-toned shades?
