Palette Play | Melt Cosmetics Impulsive Pressed Pigment Palette

Did I maybe waste time putting together a blog post for a palette you can't get anymore? Possibly. You see, the Melt Cosmetics Impulsive palette is definitely not new but as far as I'm aware, the brand never stated if it was truly limited edition or not. I picked it up over the summer during the Melt sale, and since then it has been on both the Melt site and Sephora Canada. It was when I popped over to the US Sephora and it wasn't there that I got to thinking this palette may no longer be available. Regardless, I've gotten this far, so let's take a closer look, yeah?

Pounce & Bounce | Colourpop The Full Beat Blending Sponge Kit

: : : self-purchased / / affiliate links : : : 

While I do dabble with brushes when it comes to foundation application, my go-to just tends to be more sponge. Sure, there are some formulas that just don't agree with sponges, but for the most part, I just really like the ease and finish of a good ol' sponge. That said, when Colourpop released their own range of complexion sponges, I took notice. I didn't snag them right away, and as such was left a wee bit deflated when the Full Beat Sponge Kit was removed from the site. Obviously they came around and brought it back, and that's when I pounced. Want to take a deep dive as to what it entails? You know what to do...

This vs That Lip Mask Edition | Laniege vs Milk Makeup

You know how I know it's truly, one hundred percent, officially winter? My cat is on the couch with me, under the covers, squished up against my leg. Oh, plus the fact that I now need to double layer my moisturizer at night. That includes upping my lip balm game. Canadian winter weather is no joke (even if you have no intentions of leaving your house.) If I don't get a good balm for overnight, things are a straight up disaster the next day. That's why I went hard this year, with not one but two lip masks. Do you really need two though? Not likely, so I'm putting them to battle. Who reigns supreme? Read on...

Lip Liner Lovin' with Colourpop, Melt, Inglot & Sephora Collection

For the longest time, I just didn't bother with lip liners. I'd get the odd one and end up using it, but I didn't actively seek them out. Lately though? I've been all about that liner life. I've been into sheer, glossy lip options a lot lately, but sometimes you just need a little more colour and definition, you know? Aka the perfect time for a lip liner to shine. As per usual when it comes to my lip colour preferences, most of these are on the neutral side. What can I say? I like what I like.
