When I moved a few months ago, I was excited to declutter the mess I brought to my new home. Unfortunately places closed shortly after due to the global health crisis, so I have bags and bags of makeup lying around. Makeup is a tripping hazard around my bed. I also thought maybe I will be drinking more water at home now. Nope, I’ve been very good at staying dehydrated. But now I have time to try all the lip products I have at home and talk about them on here. Lano, an Australian beauty brand, has been on my radar for a long time due to its marketing for having some of the best lip balms – Lanolips. As a professional lip peeler (gross, I know) due to perpetual dry lips, I was ecstatic to try some of their highly rated products.
I’ve been on this post for a while as one of my boxes of makeup got lost amongst moving from condo to home and luckily it was hiding in my friend’s car! Phew, glad I did NOT lose my Catrice Cosmetics products. These were sent to me for a review and I was excited to see this European brand in Canada now! Now that I have more time at home, I will be doing more makeup looks and keep this as a “first impressions” post – so prepare for lots of photos!
So many things happened in the last month I barely time to catch up with myself. Moving into my first home-owned. Getting engaged. Work has been non stop. Self care is something I’m striving to get more of, hopefully in the next coming month. I have three massages booked already. Moving all my possessions into a small one bedroom apartment was definitely a stressful and I’m thankful only 2 things broke during the move. Especially glad my nail polishes made the trip. The Zoya Twinkling Collection Awas sent to me during Christmas time and I want to give some glory to it now. [Read more…]
Last fall, I went on a mini day trip to shop in the states and did a mini Ulta beauty haul. One of the brands I’ve always wanted to try was Colourpop as I’ve heard good things about their quality and affordability; and I like how they spelled ‘colour’ the Canadian way. 🙂 I also bought a lipstick along with the No Filter Concealer and Liquid Liner, but it mysteriously disappeared somewhere before I even had a chance to use it. 🙁 RIP $7 USD.

If you are like me and have Christmas exchanges after December 25th, then there’s still lots of time (ish) to pick up some last minute presents. Here is a smorgasbord of products with varying budgets if you are still looking for a gift for your hosts, managers, families, siblings etc!
