Robin McGraw Revelation

Earlier this year I just so happened to be watching the Dr. Phil show one afternoon.  While I don’t always have the time to watch it, this time I did.  Now imagine my surprise when near the end of the show, Dr. Phil invites his lovely wife on stage to speak about her skincare line, Robin McGraw Revelation.  Now I’m not one to buy things just because I see it advertised on TV, but I have to admit that I was intrigued to find out more.  Unfortunately, at that time they were not yet shipping to Canada.  Well fast forward to this summer when they reached out to let me know that Robin McGraw Revelation is now available in Canada.  I can’t even pretend that I didn’t jump at the chance to test out a few products from the line.

Purchased by MeMelt Cosmetics Haze Stack

Melt Cosmetics has long been a brand on my ‘I should try them’ list.  Unfortunately for me, I always seem to forget about them and never ended up purchasing anything from them.  Well, that was the case until a few weeks ago when they launched the Hot Box Collection.  There was just something about this collection that really caught my eye.  Combine that with great email flyer timing, and I managed to actually get my hands on the Melt Cosmetics The Haze Stack ($48 USD).

Purchased by MeGuerlain Terracotta Le Parfum

I have been trying to get my hands on Guerlain Terracotta Le Parfum for several years now.  I saw it and tested it out on my very first shopping trip to Murale and I absolutely loved it.  Of course, I made the ultimately stupid decision not to pick it up right then and there and I’ve regretted it because after that I wasn’t able to find it anywhere.  So when it was re-released earlier this year as part of the celebration of 30 years of the Guerlain Terracotta Powder, I did a little happy dance and picked it up.  Actually, I picked up four bottles because I’m determined not to be without this one again.

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).
