Essence Cosmetics | Fame Fatal Nail Polish and Polka Dot Nail Art

Essence Cosmetics just keeps getting better for me. I am LOVING Fame Fatal which is a dead, sexy red that is so shiny and delicious that there is no way anyone can say no to this colour! The combination of black and red is one of my favourites so I added some black dots in Essence – Black is Back with a dotting tool.

MAKE UP FOR EVER | Aqua Matic Waterproof Glide-On Eye Shadow in I-22 with Swatches and Makeup Look

When it comes to the term “waterproof” in makeup, I only think of the MUFE Aqua line. I kid you not, I have been using MUFE’s Aqua Shadow in 20E every freakin’ day for the last 4 weeks because I don’t even need primer to have it last 10 hours in summer heat. The only thing about the Aqua Shadow line that was missing were some FUN summer colours making the Make Up For Ever Aqua Matic ($25.00) eye shadow pencils the missing link. Available in 10 shades ranging from neutral to adventurous, these pencils will let your inner artist run wild – even underwater!

Topbox | June 2014

I think there was a Prive box last month, but it went to my spam and I never saw it which was a little sad. I didn’t get a bad Topbox, but I was only really interested in 50% of what I received which was unfortunate. Topbox can be really hit/miss and when I look back at some of the boxes I have received there is really quite a mix. I feel like out of the beauty subs I have, it is the most “bipolar”. I am actually hesitant to give this box up because I know there is a waitlist for it and because the actual brand names included are usually quite good. Umm, hello Benefit?!

Almay Picnic Before and After Make Up Look and Giveaway Worth $115! *Warning–Very Picture Heavy!

A few weeks ago, I was fortunate enough to attend the Almay “Practice Makes Perfect” Picnic event on a very rainy Vancouver evening. There was food, drinks and the cutest lunch bags filled with everything you see below! The first thing Jacquie Hutchison, National Product Trainer for Revlon and Almay, had us do was to *shudder* remove all of our makeup and start with a bare face! From here we were led through a well-thought out tutorial on how to apply a full face of makeup perfectly. Based on my before and after shots, you’ll see if I learned anything!
