Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Volume II Eyeshadow Palette | Photos, Swatches, Review

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?

MAC x Justine Sky Iridescent Pressed Powder

 

It seems like forever since I was in a MAC store, but it was actually during Christmas when I was in New York.  In any case, I haven’t really been keeping up with most of their recent releases.  For a while it seems like I kind of fell out of love with the brand, which is kind of sad, because they are awesome.  But then something caught my eye one day while I was on instagram.  Something that made me sit right up and take notice and put MAC right back at the top of my list of favourite makeup brands.  That something is none other than the MAC x Justine Sky Iridescent Pressed Powder ($32 CAD) from the Future Forward Collection.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Aurora Glow Kit | Photos, Swatches, Review

 

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again because I really, really love the Anastasia Beverly Hills Glow Kits.  It should really come as no surprise to absolutely anyone that when it was announced that they were releasing yet another one, that I would be all over it like white on rice.  And while I didn’t pick it up right as it was released last month, I certainly didn’t wait until it is available at Sephora to get my hands on the Anastasia Beverly Hills Aurora Glow Kit ($40 USD).

Benefit GALifornia & Rockateur Powder Blush

While Benefit Cosmetics is a brand that has been around for a long, long time now, it tends to be a brand that generally escapes my notice.  Don’t get me wrong; it’s not that their products are bad or anything, it’s just that they tend to not really be #WOCFriendly.  Or at least, that’s the impression I have always got from looking at photos of their products.  So imagine my surprise a few weeks ago when the Benefit GALifornia & Rockateur Powder Blush ($38 CAD each) caught my eye and made me sit up and take notice.
