Last week I was so on top of things... Like, a week of posts scheduled and ready to do. This week? Not so much. I did the chance to play around with the new limited edition Mary Kay Matte Lipsticks though, so that's something.

The season are changing, although, they really don't know what they're doing. Is it fall? Mostly. Is it winter? Yeah, a little bit of that too. As you may know, Canadian autumns can be a blink and you miss it type of affair. Regardless, my skin is already heading into winter mode with the onset of dryness. Well, it's always prone to dryness, but you know, extra dryness. I'm ready though, as I just happen to have the Avon Anew Hydra Fusion range that is all about lasting hydration.

Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Highlighter Mini Macaron Set | Holiday 2018

Okay, so there may be some issues with my tea party... Mainly, there's no tea (I'll level with you, those are actually espresso cups) and there are no actual macarons. Hey, I live in a small town. If I was able to procure macarons, I'm willing to bet they would not only be exorbitantly overpriced but also not so great. "Well, what does this lame-o non-existent-tea tea party have then?"  Hold the attitude, we have something better than both tea and cookies...

Awesomely Autumnal | Maybelline The Burgundy Bar Eyeshadow Palette

I've been trying to figure out how to make 'Burgund-yay' work for the title of this, but I just can't make it work. I mean, I could, but it's probably better that I don't. It is fitting though, as I have been incredibly impressed by this little palette. I'll be honest, I wasn't super excited about when it arrived (in like, March...) It just didn't seem like the best time for such a launch, and since we're being honest, you just never know what you're going to get when it comes to a drugstore eyeshadow palette. As it turns out, The Burgundy Bar is kind of amazing!

Look, it's not a lip gloss or palette! Although, it does revolve revolve around the lip region... Oh, well, let's not get too particular. We're talking lip masks today, which combine my love of masks and the opportunity to perfect my lips for alllll the gloss I've been hoarding lately.

Something a little different today.... Lip gloss! What?! Don't worry, I've some palettes on the schedule too. I really have been loving gloss and palettes lately, although buying this made me feel a teensy bit ridiculous. I still did it, because, umm gloss, but it wasn't without contemplation.

It seems safe to say my recent blog posts are mirroring my recent beauty interests: palettes, skincare, and lip gloss. I've reverted to my twelve-year old self that is allll about gloss. Although, my standards have improved and I've moved past the Bonne Bell display... And onto the Hard Candy one! Jokes, but seriously, I've been incredibly impressed with the glosses Hard Candy has on offer. Read on for a closer look at five worth the space in your collection.

Green Goddess | Huda Beauty Emerald Obsessions Eyeshadow Palette

For a few months I was checked out of eyeshadow releases. I didn't keep up with them nor was I very interested in info what did find me. I was felling pretty 'meh' about the whole scene. Of course, something snapped and now I've got palette fever again. The ABH Norvina, UD Naked Cherry, TF Gingerbread, Huda Precious Stones Obsessions... So many wants! I am not typically one to buy products on release day, but you can bet I was clicking add to cart the day the Huda palettes were live on the Sephora site.

It's been a (few) hot minutes since we've chatted Pearlesque Box on the blog, but I've been embroiled in a battle with my now nemesis. That nemesis? Canada Post. For an organization whose main purpose is, oh I don't know, delivering mail, they've been doing a terrible job. But, they came through this month and I got my little turquoise box of skincare goodies on time! The October Pearlesque Box features three products from New York based Eir NYC.
