Summer Skin with Shoppers Drug Mart

 : : : press sample : : :

Life. Enough said? I don't know about you, but mine has been a bit of a struggle lately. If something can go wrong, it seems like it will. Especially if it's a something that costs money. I've dealt with enough bank account taxing events to last me a good while. All that said, I'm more than happy to get a bit of time away from all that to chat beauty. More specifically, a few great summer skin products available at your local Shoppers Drug Mart. Ready? Grab your Optimum points card and let's roll...

Bronzer Season | Bronzing with Vita Liberata, Rodial, Sothys & Revlon

bronzing season
: : : press sample / / affiliate links : : :

There is a season for just about everything, and while a dusting of bronzer can be a year-round affair, nothing brings out our desire for everthing bronzey like a little sun. Even as a devout sun and heat avoided, I dabble with bronzey hues come summer. It just makes sense, if you're one looking to fake a sun-kissed tan, or just add a little added warmth, bronzers are your bff.

Delightfully Drugstore | Kiss NY Pro Touch Dark Under Eye Concealer

kiss main: : : press sample : : :

I don't know what I was thinking when I put my blog schedule together, but subliminally I must have had complexion issues on the brain. I did just recover (yes, recover, it was rough) from an unusually harsh breakout, so it may have been my inspiration. Anyhow, I've got colour correctors coming up next, but today it's all about the Kiss NY Pro Touch Dark Under Eye Concealer and how I really didn't expect much from them. Spoiler alert: I was wrong.

I Can So I Did | Revlon PhotoReady Candid Collection

: : : press sample / / affiliate links : : :

I recently purged a lot of my foundation collection. It sounds terrible to admit, but I was holding onto a lot of foundations that were either so completely not my shade, that I hated, and that were just too old to put on my face. Why let them take up precious space when there is a whole, wide world of better options. right? What am I getting at... Oh, right. The Revlon PhotoReady Candid Collection recently found its way to me, and I have to say, I've been incredibly happy with it.

Cool for the Summer | Sothys Summer Chill Collection Eyeshadow Palette

sothys summer chill eyeshadow
: : : press sample : : :

I've got a heap of summery products to get to. I'm trying to plan as many themed posts as possible to get everything in, but to get things started, I'm feeling a one product post. Does it get through the backlog? Not exactly, but sometimes it just feels right. Especially with the Sothy's Summer Chill Collection Eyeshadow Palette, as it's a little different for summer as it runs a little cool. Everyone has warm, bronzey shades for summer, so I was intrigued that this is something a little less typical.

Hair Helper | L'Oreal Magic Shampoo Invisible Dry Shampoo

loreal magic shampoo invisible dry shampoo (2)
: : : self-purchased / / affiliate links : : :

I think it's pretty safe to say dry shampoo is a must-have beauty item for, well, anyone with hair. It's just so convenient, since as we all know, washing hair is just more work. All that said, I do remember a time before dry shampoo was readily available (I know, dark times...) and when there really weren't many options at the drugstore level. Clearly, those days are behind us and it seems every brand has something to offer. I take that as a personal challenge, and am always up to try the newest offerings. Are they all winners though...

Summer Beauty with Almay

Summer days are trying to peek through, and I'm sure once they're here I'll regret saying that I'm actually ready for warmer days. Until the sun is officially here (it's still grey, overcast and just a bit rainy...) I'll be adding a few Almay products into my routine to get the summer vibes flowing.

Nourish Beauty Box June 2019

nourish beauty box june 2019 (1): : : press sample : : :

I don't know how I've felt about blogging lately, perhaps a bit stagnant, but something that always works to perk me up (so to speak) is something new. A new product, or in the case today, a new (at least to me) subscription box. The team at Nourish Beauty Box reached out on Instagram, and I just had to see what they had to offer. I mean, who doesn't like a little box of surprise beauty goodies every now and then?

BEAUTY SPOTLIGHTGlossy is the 'it' lip finish again (yay!) but not all formulas are created equally. Are the Rodial Collagen Boost Lip Lacquers worth the space in your makeup bag? I Know all the Words swatches, tests, and trials the range to find out.

Beauty Info Zone has a Father's Day giveaway that's unlike the typical. Stuff for dad, stuff for you, and a great novel to share for Father's Day. Be sure you enter for the best giveaway.

Lola's Secret Beauty Blog doesn’t ordinarily wax poetic about matte lipsticks, but Urban Decay Vice Lipstick Mega Matte in Oblivion is the most gorgeous, flattering and complex mauve-taupe. It is non-drying, comfortable to wear, and it has a faint sheen that gives it a little dimension that prevents it from being flat or dull. It’s a definite must-have if you love mauve lipsticks.

With June upon us, it means the opening of another Polish Pickup! The theme for June is “Weather” and Literary Lacquers will be making its debut to the Polish Pickup with her Shakespeare’s The Tempest inspired polish, Strange Bedfellows. Jen from Laugh, Love, Contour has this beauty on her blog this week. I hope you put it on your shopping list because you do not want to miss out on it! 

Blythe from Prime Beauty is finally able to achieve the sunkissed look she's dreamed of with the Lumene Invisible Illumination Collection!

Find out about Pammy Blogs Beauty's everyday sun protection and favorite facial SPF from MyChelle.

If you're in Toronto and need a hair makeover, Babi aka ColorSutraa highly recommends Delineation Beauty Salon in Rosedale! Check out her post below to see how their master stylist, Richard took her hair from omg ugh to omg WOW!

The color-changing Gurunanda Honeycomb Ultrasonic Essential Oil Diffuser and Top 6 Blends eo set that Never Say Die Beauty has been loving makes a perfect gift for grads, college bound students, frazzled brides and groom-to-be, and expectant parents. Take a look!

Is a skin care fridge totally bougie or totally beneficial? Erika at Notes from My Dressing Table recently purchased the  Cooluli Concord 20 Liter Compact Cooler/Warmer to be her personal skin care/beauty fridge and she's got the scoop. If you've been curious or thinking about purchasing a skin care fridge, come check it out!

Faux & Fab | Ardell Faux Mink Lashes

ardell faux mink lashes (4) copy: : : press sample / / affiliate links : : :

We're chatting lashes today! I go in spells where I am all for lashes and then will go for months without even thinking of them. Lately though, I've been all about Ardell. These ones specifically have been in constant rotation. I do have a few other styles / varieties to try though, so it only makes sense to give the Ardell Faux Minks some time in the spotlight. So, let's get lashy, shall we?

The Bold & the Bashful | Mary Kay Spring 2019 Lip Launches

bold and the bashful mary kay spring 2019
: : : press sample : : :

There are two kinds of lip lovers, the bold and the bashful. Granted, you can totally love both, but when it comes down to it, I think you favour one more than the other. As much as I can get down with a bold hue, it's neutrals and nudes (aka the bashful) that tend to win me over most. Mary Kay is serving up options from both worlds with two variants from their Spring Collection. Want to take a little peek? You know what to do...

Orange You Glad | Avon Anew Vitamin C Collection

Another round of Friday skincare! We're taking a sidestep from Speedy Skincare this week with the new Anew Vitamin C Collection from Avon. I think I've made it abundantly clear that I live for brightening products, so vitamin c is an ingredient near and dear to my skincare loving heart. With an exfoliating and warming mask, lip treatment, and sheet mask, this collection is perfect for boosting your radiant glow. Let's take a closer look, shall we?

Cool Girl Glow | Hard Candy Glow Makers

hard candy glow makers (2): : : press sample : : :

Warmer weather is upon us, and you know what that means... Actually, it can mean a few things, I don't know why I would propose such an impossible to answer question. Anyway, it means an insurance of all things warm and glowy. Now, there is nothing wrong with toasty glow, but sometimes playing it cool is necessary. As it turns out, Hard Candy has a pretty great range of cool glow makers for just about every part of your moonlit face.

Speedy Skincare | For Beloved Girl Cloud Silk Masks

For Beloved Girl Cloud Silk Masks: : : press sample : : :

I like to keep skincare for Fridays. I'm not exactly sure, but it just seems like the perfect way to wrap up the blog week. Lately, I've been sticking to a pretty rigid skincare regimen though. Not so much out of skin necessity (although, my skin does seem to like the consistency) but more as a means to actually finish products. I've been organizing, purging, and de-cluttering just about everything in my life, and getting use out of things I have before jumping into the next product. I know, not exactly how most bloggers approach things. With all that, it means I haven't been getting into much new skincare, although, I do have a decent stash of product I'll slowly be introducing to my face (and blog) as I finish things off. There is one area though that I'm always making progress- sheet masks!

Lip Lust | Rodial Collagen Boost Lip Lacquer

rodial collagen boost lip lacquer (2): : : press sample / affiliate links : : :

Has anyone else re-discovered their love of lip gloss lately? Gloss was my first beauty love, but I've strayed from it the past few years. Its resurgence has brought me back though, especially with the fact that so many of the new formulas are amazing! Gone are the days of heavy, sticky, generally icky formulas (we've all worn them...) Rodial has dipped a toe in the glossy waters with their Collagen Boost Lip Lacquer range and they are definitely worthy of some space in your makeup bag.

Stick It | Burt's Bees All Aglow Sticks

I know cream products have been having their moment lately, but I tend not to get along with them. I mean I should, having drier skin, but so many just don't meet my exacting cream formula needs, you know? With all that said, I apprehensively got to testing the Burt's Bees All Aglow Sticks.

Speedy Skincare | b. liv Bright is Right Sheet Mask

: : : press sample : : :

I love a good mask session, or a full-on multi-masking session, but sometimes you just don't have that kind of time. Actually, honest talk here, sometimes you just don't want to expel that much energy either. Sunday Skincare is great, but so is Sunday I'm Lazing About on My Couch Not Moving, you know? For such occasions a sheet mask is always the way to go.

It's a double nail polish kind of week, and you know what? I'm totally into it. OPI Soft Shades are back again for 2019, and feature feminine, soft, neutral hues. While sheers make a decent statement in the collection this year, there are some layering options should you fear the sheer. Ready for a closer look? you know what to do...

Natural Nails | Suncoat Water-Based Nail Polish

suncoat water based nail polish (1): : : press sample : : :

When it comes to nail polish, I basically know two kinds- the old, chemical laden formulas, and the newer, slightly-less chemical laden formulas. That pretty much covers your options, right? Not quite. There are also water-based formulas, for actual adults. Apparently, they're not just for the little ones (which is exactly what I used to think.) Suncoat has been changing everything I thought I knew about polish with their non-toxic, chemical-free, water-based formula.

Cactus Cute | Quo Spring 2019 Collection

quo spring 2019: : : press sample : : :

Completely unrelated, but I just trimmed my bangs. It was totally stressful (it always is) but I always convince myself I can do it. I mean, I can, but my blood pressure must spike something crazy. Regardless, I am pleased to put the event behind me and chat makeup. No, not just any makeup, but the super adorable, cactus-clad products that make up the limited edition Quo Spring 2019 Collection.

Ethereal Glow | Revlon Mythical Light Spring 2019 Trend Report

revlon mythical light
: : : press sample / / affiliate links : : :

Spring has been peeking around corners, then promptly snowing, but is creeping along (don't worry, it'll be allergy season before you know it.) With it come florals, brighter hues, and of course everything pastel. Revlon knows we all get to hankering for pastels this time of year, but has offered up something a little more interesting with glowing, shimmering, iridescent hues. Their selected products create the look as part of their Mythical Light Trend Report.

The Stila Edit | Smokey Eye & Nude Lip

: : : press sample / / affiliate links : : :

I'm old enough to remember the great smokey eye craze of the early 2000's. A time when smokey eyes were thought to only exist in shades of black and befuddled many a beauty lover. I remember spending hours in my first dorm room with a friend who had spent a small fortune at Shoppers Drug Mart in her quest to perfect such a look. It turns out, smokey eyes are one of the easiest looks to create and while you can smoke out any colour, look damn sexy in black.

Makeup Shakeup | The Rodial Edit

the rodial edit (2): : : press sample / / affiliate links : : :

Spring is thinking of springing; I mean it certainly hasn't sprung quite yet here. I'm sure it's on its way... Maybe. Regardless, a new season is a great time to give your makeup bag and routine in general a little shakeup. Replace your mascara and maybe freshen up some of those everyday staples. Rodial has been taking over as one of my most beloved brands for years, but this newest batch of products.... So good and they might just be the new additions your routine needs.

The Fast Five | Living Coral Edition

coral 034: : : press sample / / affiliate links : : :

Some years, the Pantone Colour of the year just doesn't vibe well with the beauty world. Then, we get a years like 2019's Living Coral which, just couldn't be better. Coral is one of those shades that casts such a wide net that there is a take that suits just about everyone. That pink-orange-red mix is just so hard to resist. But really, why would you?

Remember the last Sephora sale... Yes, the one months ago. That one. Well, I very happily got my makeup loving hands on the Huda Beauty The New Nude palette. Well, not immediately. It sold out incredibly quickly, but it restocked during the sale extension. My beauty arrived and I was SO excited to get into it. SO excited that it got tucked away and I kind of forgot about it. Oops? Clearly, that changes today.

The Fastest Lash? | Ardell Magnetic Lashes

ardell magnetic lashes
: : : press sample / / affiliate links : : :

Up until not that long ago, I didn't fuss with lashes. Like, ever. I found all of my former faux lash woes were a result of not using a glue that worked for me. Now that I've found a glue that I love? It's faux lashes pretty frequently. That said, whipping out glue, applying it, waiting for it to dry down, then apply, still takes time. You know where this is going, right? Magnetic lashes. As great as they sound, the ol' skeptic in me just isn't convinced they're worth the time and money.

I have been doing an A1 job of finishing up concealers lately. Maybe even a little but too great, as I'm running alarmingly low on my HG (this guy, if you can believe it.) As much as I like it, I've gone through a couple of tubes and was ready to explore something new, and as we know, there is always something new. Like the new Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Self-Setting Concealer. I know, self-setting. What a time to be alive.

These Kiss NY Pro lipsticks have been full of surprise for me. Surprise when the very large box arrived, surprised that I hadn't seen more love for these online, and surprise at just how much I like them. Seriously, I bet you're going to want to add a few to your stash once you're through browsing this post. We've got twenty-four of them to chat up, so let's get going, okay? You know what to do...

I recently had the opportunity to test a few different NYX lip products and realized, when left to my own devices, I will always choose a nude or neutral lip. What can I say, I know what I like. Aside from my shade preferences, I also realized that the NYX range is home to some truly superior lip options. Interested? You know what to do?

I will be honest and say it has been a good while since my last stroll through the drugstore. I'm realizing I kind of miss the experience, as you never know what new gems you're going to find on such an excursion. Anyway, if you're a fan of said trips, I do have a little selection of Garnier goodies that might just need to hop into your cart.

A little while ago, we delved into the world that is the new range of Mary Kay Chromafusion. Well, the face options (think blush, bronzer, and highlight options) but there is more. Rember? I'm pretty sure I mentioned this... Anyway, the range is also home to an array of shadows. With pretty much everything you're looking to adorn yourself with, the range means you can create the custom palette of your dreams... Fun stuff, right?

Brows for (Literal) Days | Maybelline Tattoo Studio Waterproof Brow Gel

maybelline tattoo studio brow gel medium and deep brown (7): : : press sample / affiliate links : : :

You can't help but feel a little extra pep in your step when your brows are looking their best. It's the tinier version of a good hair day, but in my experience, more work. Granted, there are a ton of brow products I really like, it's just that getting brows just right (and close to matching...) can be a lot of effort. Maybelline is trying to cut down brow-taming time with one of their recent launches. Too good to be true? You'll have to read on to find out...

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

Have you ever started using a product just because it was there but then realized it may just be the greatest thing you've ever slathered on? No? Well, that's what happened to me when I reluctantly dipped into a tub of First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream. I'd had the tub in my stash for some time (read last Christmas...) I knew a lot of people love it, but just didn't expect to be wowed. I was so wrong. Now, as great as it is, I've also had CeraVe on my radar, as it seems just as many love it. The formulas seem similar, but with CeraVe providing a lot more product at about half the price. What's a dry skinned gal to do?

A few days ago i was reading about this thing wherein people who are knowledgeable on a topic, or even just highly interested, make websites and write about said topic. It sounded so intriguing, yet vaguely familiar to me all at once. They call it.... Blogging. Ahem. Jokes aside, it's been a while, I know. Buuut, I've gotten some of my tech issues sorted out (literally everything I own is dying or in need of some sort of repair) so we can chat up the new OPI Tokyo Collection for Spring 2019. Let's go!

: : : press sample : : :

It's 2019! Well, that may not be anything to get excited about, just yet anyway, but at least we can put 2018 behind us. A new year is always a little bit exciting though, as it brings the potential of change, renewal, and better days. Who couldn't use a few more of those? Better skin could also be on your horizons, especially if you jump on the January Pearlesque Box featuring Modicum Skin Care.
