Last month while rushing through Shoppers Drug Mart (I was only supposed to be picking up a parcel at the postal outlet) but I had to pass by my two favourite spots- the $20 perfumes and the clearance table. I have had amazing luck finding some great marked down items in the past, but was really surprised to find a bunch of Nails Inc. polishes- mainly because I didn't even know Shoppers sold them. When I was back in last week, with more time to browse, I made sure to look, and did in fact find Nails Inc. Very exciting!

I love that eyebrow items are more commonplace than waaay back in the day- okay, not that long ago, but whatever. When I was getting into makeup I missed the eyebrow memo. I knew the basics of plucking, but the whole idea of filling them in and grooming them as part of my daily routine was a class I missed. It didn't help that mid-level brands didn't have neat little kits to make everything all that much easier, like the new Perfect Eyebrow Kit from Avon.

While I already have a pretty decent makeup collection, there is one product in particular that I can't help but pick up whenever I see it- powder. It's not the most interesting of beauty items, but it's just so useful. When I spotted Milani's The Multitasker Face Powder I couldn't pass up the cute pattern pressed into it, oh, and it might have been on sale too...

Who can deny the allure of a little holographic goodness? If you can, we can never be friends. Sorry :(
The shimmering flair of a great holo is just about too gorgeous for words, but being able to turn any of your favourite nail polishes into a holo is doubly awesome, right? That's where Digital Nails Spectraflair Holographic Topcoat comes in to save the day. Read on to see just how awesome it is!
If you were to ask beauty fans what some of their must have eye products are, I'd bet it's safe to say a good mascara and black liner are going to be on that list time and time again. Of course a good mascara is a must- long, full, fluttery lashes? Yes, please! And a black liner... well that just goes without explanation, does it not? Clarins has you covered in both departments with their Be Long Mascara and 3-Dot Liner which both promise longer lashes with use.

When Rimmel's Apocalips started appearing on British blogs I was quite excited for their release here. I stalked the drugstore for months only to end up empty handed. It's a feeling I've come accustom to actually, as my small-ish town drugstore is perpetually behind every other Canadian drugstore.
Eventually I forgot about them, but then there were murmurs they were on their way, with a new name perhaps? Maybe? What?! Excitement ensued! The long and short of it is, they're here! In Canada, known as Apocalips and in the States Show Off. Regardless, wherever you reside, they're available now!

For someone who never used to use many hair products- seriously, I only used to use one, two products max up until a few months ago- I've had a lot of new products come into my life. When the opportunity to try Taya's range of Amazon White Clay Thickening products I, of course, accepted since you can never have too much volume. Based on what I understood from my correspondence with the brand, I expected a little try me set to get to know their products. Given that, I was pretty shocked to find a deliver guy at my door with a giant box marked Taya. I was sent A LOT of products.... I think my days of two products are long gone!
I think we all know the iconic little spherical lip balms from eos (Evolution of Smooth). They took the
blogging world by storm not all that long ago, but did you know the brand also has a whole range of moisturizing products? Oh, boy, do they! Read on for the 411.

New nail polish alert! New nail polish alert!
New to me, anyway. I'm not sure how long Ceramic Glaze has been on the scene, but it's totally new to me. The same week I was sent this bottle from their Holiday Collection (Shimmer & Sparkle, one of two collections actually) I spotted them at my local Shopper's Drug Mart. A new polish brand to love is never a bad thing in my book!

I haven't had a beauty subscription box in some time, so I was excited when the opportunity came about to review Beautybox Five. I like the idea of subscription services because I love a surprise every now and then and you could end up with products you never would have known/tried otherwise. Of course, you could also end up with stuff you'd never use, but risk is part of the game, people! Are you game? Read on!

If there is ever a time to pile on glitter without abandon, it's the holidays. You can glimmer, shimmer and shine and no reasonable person will object, because reasonable people love a bit of glitter. They just do. Avon is doing their part to help you get there with not one but two super cute (and inexpensive!) products in the form of Frosty'N Fab Glitter Nail Enamel and Candylicious Lip Gloss. Read on for all the glitz!
New lipstick! Woo!
No beauty lover can resist a new lipstick every now and then. It's true. The science has been proven; There have been studies.
Avon recently released their Ultra Colour Lipstick and you know I had to try at least a shade or two because, well... why not? Plus, Avon has always had a pretty amazing lipstick formula, so the new one should be double amazing, right?

Hey, hey, hey!
Hopefully everyone has emerged from their candy-comas relatively unscathed...yeah?

Today I've got the Stila Portrait of a Perfect Blush Cheek Palette, which at a mere $19 is an incredibly budget friendly way to share a pop of colour this holiday season. Or, you know, hoard for yoursef, that works too... Read on!
