rapid lash and brow review and results::: sponsored / press sample :::

This post was sponsored by RapidLash & RapidBrow as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central and all opinions expressed in my post are my own.

Lashes & Brows. Two things you can never have too much of. Okay, maybe you can can have too much brow (hello, unibrow...) Regardless, we all want those fluttery lashes and perfect brows without the need for a million and two products, if possible. If like me, you'd like an easy way to enhance what your mama gave you (or didn't) than RapidLash and RapidBrow might just be your new bff.

Joe Fresh Beauty | New for 2017

::: press sample :::

Most Canadian beauty fans know Joe Fresh Beauty, who caused a bit of a commotion when they launched in 2009 with their nail polish range. Cute little polishes you can pick up while you grocery shop at 3 for $10? Yes, please! The fact that the rest of their beauty range was equally good eventually caught on, and they've been adding products to the range regularly ever since. A new batch for 2017 has recently launched, and as you can see, I've got a selection to chat up.

We're talking sweets today! Most of the previous Sweet Tooth posts have actually been rather light on actual sugar, but it's making an appearance today with two British offerings from Waterbridge- Dolly Mix and Jelly Babies. They're cute and sweet so let's get to them...

matte meets moisture make up for ever artist liquidmatte and ultra hd lip booster::: press sample / affiliate links :::

It's seems to be the season of the lip product, and I for one, don't mind one bit. I have been especially excited about the lip products we're going to be chatting up today, as I love me a bit of Make Up For Ever, and they rarely disappoint. They've recently dipped into the matte liquid lipstick pool with the launch of their Artist Liquid Matte Lip Colours which happen to partner well with another recent launch, the Ultra HD Lip Booster. A match made in product heaven, really.

Hydration Nation | Burt's Bees Tinted Lip OIl

burt's bees tinted lip oil (4)::: press sample / affiliate links :::

The winter season is finally behind us (yay!) which means skin is returning to a not-so-constantly dry state (also yay!) The things is, lips are always in need of a bit of extra hydration- at least mine are. Balms are good, but I've come to really love lip oils as they tend to offer a lightweight texture but still hydrate to the hilt. Burt's Bees has a new offering that is exactly that, and even offers a hint of colour in their Tinted Lip Oil.

A stunted start to the blog week but I'm back after a mini-break (no, nothing exciting other than a round of extensive spring cleaning.) I was feeling a little bleck yesterday, but my spirits are revived and I'm ready to chat liner. I've long said life it too short for bad eyeliner, and I'm inclined to think Marcelle agrees. They've recently added new shades to one of their ranges and added a whole new one to love too. Interested? Read on!

A lot of my first beauty purchases revolve around lip gloss, so although it's no longer something I reach for all the time, I still get a little twinge of excitement when a new tube/formula finds its way to me. The most recent gloss in my radar comes from Hard Candy in the form of their very cute (and drippy) Wet Ever Bold Hold Lip Lacquer.

candy.ca march box (1)
::: press sample :::

In life there are few fun surprises that arrive once a month... Unlike that other one, a Candy.ca box is one you're actually going to look forward to. I was super excited when I found one in my mail box last week, I'm not going to lie. I have no shame in my love of candy, so the idea of finding a box with 6-7 types of candy in the mail each month is something I can fully support. The March Candy.ca box is packed with a pretty great selection of sweet eats, but you're going to have to read on for a closer look...

Cleansing cloths. Makeup removers. Facial wipes... Call them what you will, but that's what we're catting today. Scratch that, that's what is battling it out for product supremacy. I recently picked up two options and once at home, realized how similar they both were. Clearly a This vs That situation...

It seems like 2017 is the year of greener beauty. While the concept is far from new, it seems like more of us (bloggers, brands, consumers...) are looking add more naturally sourced products into our routines. And, why not say buh-bye to chemicals we can't even pronounce little own know what function they serve? FarmHouse Fresh knows the struggle, and as such has launched a line of organics- Delicious Organics, to be exact- that currently includes eight debut products for hands and body (yay!) with additional face product to follow later this year.

Happy Spring, blog fans! It's finally starting look a bit more spring-like here (if you look around the piles of snow) and it's getting warmer- I didn't need my winter coat yesterday! A small victory, but I'll take it. Of course, spring means a return to colour, so I figured today was a perfect day to chat up the new Marcelle Rouge Expression Velvet Lipstick & Lip Liners.

Usually we do Fast Five, but as you may have noticed, we're not quite there today. But, it's okay, as Acure Organics makes up for it with their high quality, low budget products. I am new to the brand, but have been massively impressed by everything I've been sampling. It's all so good! So, let's get to it....

Every so often, I decide I have enough eyeshadow. Enough palettes, all the shades I could ever want or need. And I probably do, but it never stops me from adding just one more to the must have pile. The Rodial Smokey Eye Sculpt Eyeshadow Palette is the newest in that pile, and without getting ahead of myself, must say it's really something. Really.

It's not only Monday, but a Monday after Day Light Savings (and not the good one wherein you get an extra hour.) I know I'm feeling a little sluggish and under-enthused, so it seems like a great day for something a little sweet. This installment of The Sweet Tooth is exactly that, but it's also a little... beany? Whaaaat?!

I can't see myself attending any this year as there are no newly engaged in my life, but that doesn't mean I can enjoy the soft and pretty shades that make up the new Essie Gel Couture Bridal Collection. Bride or not, there are some really pretty spring shades and a few twists to keep things interesting.

I'm back! I was without an internet connection for a few days (two, and yes, they were terrible) but it's back to business with a heap of new-ish products from Avon, Why new-ish? Good question. Because Avon has made a few changes to their colour products, and reformulated to include their True Colour technology/promise to extend to everything- nails, shadows, lips it's all True Colour now. There are some new shades in the mix along with shades from before the switch, and a few all new options. We've got a lot to get to so let's go...

March is upon us, so you know what that means... Pearlesque Box! I've been especially excited about this month's box as it features Teadora, a brand I've been itching to try. I did try to order it (months ago now) but there were no international shipping options. I haven't checked back to see if they've updated their shipping policies, but Pearlesque Box may be your best way to get your hands on them if like me, are in Canada. Onto the goods though!

Joyeux vendredi, admirateurs des blogs! Aujourd'hui nous avons quelque chose d'un peu différent... Le Francais! Kidding. My French skills are not nearly sharp enough for a full French post (although, I have been doing my mostly-daily lessons with DuoLingo and Rosetta Stone.) We will be chatting up a French-Canadian brand though. I was very excited about the chance to feature Maison Jacynth, as they're not only Canadian, but they specialize in natural and organic products (skincare, beauty, and home) free of undesirable things like chemicals, petroleum by-products, preservatives and synthetic fragrance.

I doubt you need me to tell you this, but the world isn't exactly doing so well. Between wars, rampant hatred, the orange one, and a general lack of empathy for one another, there is a lot of room for improvement. That said, there are some amazing things that make it all worth while. And incredible people working to make the world a bit better for all. L'Occitane is part of that group, and has recently launched this year's Solidarity Balm.

It's still winter. *Audible sigh*. I don't so much mind the cold, but the snow is... terrible. If, like me, you're dreaming of warmer days, you may want to take a little sniff of the newest Nicki Minaj fragrance, Trinit Girl. I know, celebrity scents, right? I'm not one to care much about them, but when they cross my path I'm willing to give them a test. I've been pleasantly surprised by a few (hello, Jessica Simpson Fancy) and Nicki actually has some really decent scents.

::: press sample / affiliate links :::

So it seems National Lash Day just passed (Feb. 19th) but I'm stretching the lash love a day longer. Why? Because I had no idea National Lash Day existed, and because I can. I may be slightly drunk with power... Anyway, it should be obvious by now that we're talking lashes today, more specifically mascara. While I enjoy a few higher priced mascara options, it's drugstore brands that I flock to most. You can find some great formulas at decent prices. One brand who excels though is Maybelline. They're always up to something when it comes to new mascaras, but which one is worthy of your time (and cash?)

It's about this time of year that one starts to think Spring may never return. There is just so. much. snow. It's snowing as I type. Spring will eventually return (mid May, maybe?) but until then faking it seems like the best approach. Mary Kay is making that a bit more possible with their spring collection Light, Reinvented, which launches tomorrow. With pretty hues for eyes, lips, and nails you can't help but feel a little warmer.

l'occitane moisture makeover
::: press sample / affiliate links :::

Happy Valentine's Day, lovelies! We already chatted up Valentine's, so today is about another February occasion: dry winter skin. Granted, not so much an occasion as a state of being, but by the time mid-February rolls around most of use could use some added moisture. This winter has been particularly cold and snowy here (I currently have someone on my roof clearing it away) and all the cold air has left my skin drier than usual (who knew that was even possible...) L'Occitane has my back though. Well, that's not quite accurate, face and hands, as they've sent along some shea filled products to get me through the last of the cold (and beyond.)

Shu Uemura Art of Hair | Colour Lustre

shu uemura art of hair colour lustre (2)::: press sample / affiliate links :::

Even if you knew nothing about me, two things would be instantly clear- I'm not afraid of a little colour and that natural hair hues don't interest me much. I was trying to think back to the first time I dyed my hair (10th grade, when I finally wore my mom down) and realized that I've wanted any colour hair but my own (the blackest blue-black) from a pretty young age. All that said means that my hair has seen some things, been some questionable colours, and needed TLC. I take much better care of my hair than I once did, and recently it's the Shu Uemura Art of Hair Colour Lustre range that has been my go-to. It's just so good!

One way to do so, is with a little help from FarmHouse Fresh who are offering up some perfect gift sets.

Happy Monday, blog fans! Today is a fun one, as The sweet Tooth is back. It might be a little polarizing though, as in my experience there are three types of people- peanut butter lovers, haters, and the indifferent. I fall in the latter category. I like it, but I don't go crazy for it. I think the peanut butter loving gene skips a generation, as both of my parents are/were pb fanatics. Anyway, regardless of where you fall, today is ll about Reginald's Homemade and one of their all natural peanut butters.

I am kind of a know it all. Not so much in a bad way, it's just that I know a lot of things. Need to know random, odd facts, obscure pop culture references? Forget Google, I'm your girl. My facts may not always be useful, but it wins arguments. One of which popped up in a recent discussion about trends, more specifically if trends exist in skincare. I know; but you're my people. You know there are beauty and skincare trends, but I was with less beauty minded folk. Really though, who questions a beauty blogger? My defense lead me to the topic of the day- boosters. They're definitely a trend on the rise as more and more brands throw their options into the ring shelves. Dermalogica and Indeed Labs are just two of such brands, and the ones I've been adding to my routine as of late.

Mess-Free Nail Art (almost) | Born Pretty Nail Art Stamping Mat

born pretty store nail art diy stampting mat (1)::: press sample :::

I would never be able to hack it as a full-time nail blogger. For one, I break off essential swatching nails far too frequently, but also because it's a ton of time. One can easily spend hours creating tiny masterpieces, Sure, the out come may be enviable, but I'm just going to end up chipping it a day later. That said, I still dabble in nail art from time to time, because it is fun to get a little creative. I never fully embraced stamping until I learned about reverse stamping (total game changer!) and the process of stamping onto something to make what are basically decals for your nails. It's a pretty easy process, but the colouring stage can get a bit messy. Born Pretty Store (aka home of everything nail art) has a very simple solution...

Hello, blog fans! You were meant to be reading this yesterday, but I was in the throws of what I'll call a severe book-over. No, not a hangover, but the ill effects of staying up far too late reading. You know when just one more chapter leads to a never ending reading session, and before you know it it's 6 am? It left me feeling a bit zombie-ish yesterday. Add to that some missing photos, a majorly broken nail (which meant no retaking said missing photos) and no resolve to get this blog post finished. I can report I am well rested now, and fully ready to chat about a few stripe-clad Kokie Cosmetic bits. Read on!

The brow. So good when it all goes well, but do sad (and even scary) when things don't quite work out.

A moment of silence for the follicles forever damaged...  Most of us need a bit of help achieving our dream brows and for that there are brow-centric brands like Full Brow. The name alone is a friendly sign that better brow days are ahead.

Say Buh-Bye to the Winter Dry(ness) | BVSpa by Bon Vital Body Butter

bvspa by bon vital body butter (8)
::: press sample :::

I don't know exactly when you'll read this, as my current self (which by this point is my past self) is getting organized and writing up some posts in advance. Go me! Anyway, at present, it's snowing and the weather is absolute shi sugar, complete with bitter cold. You know where this is going, especially if you tend to have dry skin year round. The combination of indoor heating and the super cold turns skin into a flaky, dry (and if you're lucky) itchy mess. There are many ways to combat the winter dry, but one of my favourites is a liberal slathering of good ol' body butter. My current favourites come from BVSpa by Bon Vital as they smell incredible and bring a hefty does of hydration.
