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!

Mini-Review: elf Matte & Aqua Beauty Liquid Eyeshadows

Hey guys!

So this week has been crazy busy with school and clinical work – I haven’t had any time to write a quality post. So I thought I would give you that lil review I mentioned in my elf haul on the new Aqua Beauty & Matte Liquid Eyeshadows!

I only grabbed 2 shades of the matte eyeshadow, and 1 of the aqua beauty because I wanted to test out if I liked these or let’s get into it!

elf Haul!

Hey fishies!

So ELF is throwing a 40% off sitewide sale (excluding newer items) and my package from them arrived about 2 weeks ago. I contemplated not blogging this haul, but it isn’t that many I thought what the heck?

I got some brushes, a few eye items from their beautifully bare and aqua beauty lines, as well as some items they were discontinuing. I included those items just because some places have elf in physical locations so you might be able to still snag these if possible!

Let’s get into it!

Beauty Basics: Concealers, Brighteners & Colour Correctors

Hey fishies,

Welcome to another Beauty Basics! Today I thought I would go over some concealers – mainly because I didn’t realize what a collection I had amassed over the years..

There are some mainstays in my collections, a couple of re-purchases and some you might want to skip. I’ve split it up according to high-end, drugstore, illuminators, and colour correctors.

Let’s hop to it!

Beauty Basics: Setting & Priming Sprays

Happy hump day fishies!

Today, as I stare out the window and enjoy this awesome heat (which is so unlike the weather over here, really), I think about my makeup. And how it’s going to melt off my face.

Dun dun dun.

But no fear! That’s why the makeup gods invented setting sprays. I personally need a setting spray, because if not, my makeup will take a vacation all over my face and I am a melty, hot ass mess by the end of the day.

The Rundown: Brow Powders, Waxes & Pomades

Hey fishies,

So school is in full swing for me… and because I am not yet ready to study, I figured I would blog 🙂

To complete the trio of Brow Rundowns, we’re gonna talk about brow powders today! (And pomades and waxes, because of course).

I don’t need to talk about how much I love filling in my brows, so its only natural that I am blogging about more brow products. Because pencils and gel aren’t enough. lol.

So let’s just get down, shall we?

e.l.f. Cosmetics – Slayin’ or Playin’ ?

Hi my fishies!

Welcome to the third “Slayin or Playin’” ! Today we are tackling one of the internet’s favourite brands – eyes lips face aka e.l.f. cosmetics!

Now, a little background, I have been a patron of this brand since longgggg back. I mean, way back. Back when they had a black background..and you weren’t sure if you were going to get a customs charge (lol!), back when you would get a magazine subscription with an order.

Needless to say, elf has substantially upped their game in terms of cosmetics, and I’ll be running you all through my collection – and we will see: is elf Slayin or Playin?
