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.
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.
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?
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.
