best of 18: : : press sample / self-purchased : : :

It's that time of year again, aka the end. It's about time to take a little look back at the year that was, at least from my corner of the beauty world. I didn't blog as much in 2018, but I still managed to get my hands on some great products. I took a dive into my analytics and have determined my top 18 posts, aka the most popular of the year. Ready? Let's go!

Merry Christmas Eve! I know, I'm cutting things seriously close with this last holiday post, but the OPI Nutcracker & the Four Realms Collection landed at my door Friday afternoon. I've been busy swatching, and have to say that this is a really solid collection if you're still looking for a something-something for your festive manicure. Let's get to some polish, shall we?

The big day of the holidays (aka Christmas) is creeping up. I know you know, but it just had to be said, you know? Anyways, all it really means is that you're running out of shopping days (insert panicked music here...) If you're still in need of a last minute gift, may I suggest something that most everyone will love?

Getting Gifty | Quo Holiday 2018

quo holiday 2018 Sweet Cheeks Blush Set (2)
: : : press sample : : : 

I didn't expect to be getting gifty again quite so soon, but as it turns out Quo is killing it this year with a sizeable collection of holiday options. If you're not computing what Quo is, you're clearly not from around here (aka Canada.) Shoppers Drug Mart is the OG beauty hub for most Canadian beauty fans, with Quo being the in house brand. They've been known to do some fun seasonal collections and have done it again this year. Want a closer look? You know what to do...

: : : press sample / self-purchased / affiliate links : : : 

Now that we're officially in December, it feels about right to talk gifts. I know, the beauty world has been talking gifts / holiday since October, but for me, the holidays just don't feel like the holidays until December rolls around. The beauty world does the holidays exceptionally well, but for my take on a gift guide this year, I've got a few more unique bits that stray from your standard gift set from Sephora.
