It's almost a new month and you know what that means... A new Pearlesque Box! April's box takes us to Vancouver (go, Canada!) via the brand Delia Organics (seen here a few months ago.) I was very excited to see which Delia Organics products would be featured in the box, hoping to see a few new ones, and that's exactly what I got. Read on for the rundown...

This vs That | Cleansing Cloth Edition

this vs that pacifica honest co facial wipes (2)::: I bought it / affiliate links :::

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...

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....

Rodial Smokey Eye Sculpt Eyeshadow Palette

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.

The Sweet Tooth | Love Grown Sea Stars

::: I bought it :::

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?!

It's almost spring, which is not only allergy season, but also brings the start of wedding season. 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...
