NAILS | Here We Go Again with the Stripes! #ManiMonday

I have not done my nails in SO LONG that when I sat down to do this manicure, I nearly forgot to do a basecoat! I mean, who ARE you Jayne? While I was away in Maine and Montreal, I decided to go bare-nailed because I wasn't sure whether I would have time to paint my nails and didn't want to get sick of the colour I had chosen so it seemed easier to go naked. My nails did suffer their breaks when playing frisbee so while they are a bit shorter for now, I am hoping they will grow out in time for Halloween nails which I adore so much!

KBEAUTY | A. by BOM Ultra Therapy Floral Leaf Mask #100DaysofSheetMasks

Just when I thought I would love the idea of mini masks, comes the mini mask PLUS the full sheet mask! Ever since I started sheet masking with the vigor and discipline of an Olympic athlete, I have discovered sheet masks that I never thought would have ever made it to market, but here we are and some days I look relatively normal while on others I am a unicorn. With the discovery of Korean brand A. by BOM via meejmuse on YouTube, the concept of two step masking is one that I am totally in love with!


BEAUTY | Limited Edition Zoella Splash Botanics Collection

I am definitely still feeling summer as when I left for vacation, it was the beginning of September and since coming back last night to buckets of rain, I am mentally adjusting to the reality that Fall in Vancouver is here to stay aka "A HELL OF A LOT OF RAIN". While I was away in Maine, the weather was fairly humid so I was able to get away with lighter moisturizers on both my face and body, but more importantly, it gave me a chance to enjoy the limited edition Zoella Splash Botanics Collection!

SKINCARE | Rodial Snake Oxygenating and Cleansing Bubble Mask #100DaysofSheetMasks

It's bubble mask time yet again! My first experience with a bubble sheet mask was with the MaskerAide Bubble Bubble Pop Charcoal Bubble Sheet Mask and it was a positive one so when I realized I hadn't tried the Rodial Snake Oxygenating and Cleansing Bubble Sheet Mask* yet and had had it in my collection for quite some time it seemed appropriate to compare an affordable bubble mask with a luxury one!

GIVEAWAY | Jayne's Favourites from MAKE UP FOR EVER! ($213 Value!)

One of the most consistent brands featured here is MAKE UP FOR EVER and not because they are just press samples. Though I only became acquainted with the brand through PR in 2012, I have purchased additional shades of eyeshadows, lipsticks and refills of foundation all thanks to falling in love with how solid and long-lasting their formulas are in almost every product I have tried. I can only think of one or two things that I don't love and they are only because they just aren't products I regularly use like bronzer or eye brow gel. In this world of beauty, brands and influencers, I definitely have more respect for some brands than others and MUFE is one of the ones that I hold in high regard so I cannot tell you how grateful I was when MUFE decided to partner up with me to gift all of these lovely goodies that I use on a daily basis to ONE lucky Cosmetic Proof reader!
