ColourPop Cosmetics: Slayin’ Or Playin’?

Hey fishies!

Welcome to another Slayin or Playin!

We’re talking about the much hyped, much loved, and burgeoning indie brand, ColourPop.

I didn’t know anything about this brand until about a year ago, when they began to blow up on instagram and Youtube. I first encountered them when Kathleenlights did her first collab, as well as Tati’s review of the brand on Youtube.

I was mad intrigued at the texture and pigmentation of their products, and I feel like ColourPop was the first real liquid lipstick I tried out.  They’re so affordable and fun and quirky, I couldn’t help myself.

While the products I talk about today aren’t new (as in product or even formula-wise), I figured I would give you my thoughts on the brand regardless.

My Favorite Makeup Removing Wipes!

Hey guys!

So today’s post is a little different – instead of talking about makeup to put on the face, let’s chat about how we get it off the face!

So I did a post on my favourite cleansers, if you’re curious check it out. Today is mainly about makeup wipes – I know this is a staple in a lot of folks’ routines. I personally love using wipes after cleansing as well as when I get those products that are stubborn and won’t come off easily.

And yes, I know it’s friday – no Foundation Friday?? Don’t fret my fishies.. I am test driving a foundation for you guys…stay tuned next week!

Beauty Basics: Mascaras

Hey fishies,

Welcome to another Beauty Basics!  I want to apologize to you all because as I was scrolling through my last beauty basics (it was on concealers) I realized that it was not content I was happy with. I wanted to push some material out for you guys, and honestly that post is such a mess. It’s too crowded with product and not concise. I promise to re-do a post on concealers – possibly breaking it into high end and low end. I only want to write the best content for you.

With that being said, welcome to my rendition of mascara basics.

Essence Cosmetics: Slayin’ Or Playin’?

Hello my fishies!

Welcome to another Slayin’  or Playin’ ! I haven’t done one of these in a while, and I finally decided on a brand – essence cosmetics!

This brand came to Canada in 2012, and honestly, nobody really talked about it.  I randomly spotted a stand in the drugstore and what really drew me was their $1 nail polishes. I wasn’t a huge makeup junkie back then, but over time, essence has not failed to surprise me with their affordable prices, and sometimes odd makeup products.

Mini-Haul & Review! LA Girl Cosmetics

Hey fishies!

So first off, Happy Monday! I recently hauled a bunch of stuff from OffDutyBasics – what initially drew me was the fact that they carry a giant selection of LA Girl products, more so than my usual place of purchase for LA Girl, NailPolishCanada. Not only that, I ordered a bunch of stuff from their sister site, ShopMissA, and was pleased with the items and shipping.
