Benefit Cosmetics Tinted Lip Balm

It’s for sure lip balm weather right now, and this @BenefitCanada lip balm is one of my favourite balms with a tint.  I use the Benebalm on my lips – the red colour isn’t too much and looks pretty.  Lollibalm is my second favourite but I do find the mauve to wash my lips out […]

The Body Shop Lip and Cheek Velvet Stick

I’ve been #ShoppingMyStash recently and I’ve rediscovered The Body Shop’s Lip and Cheek Velvet Stick in the Universal Shade.  The universal shade turns into various shades of pink depending on the pH of your skin.  On me, it’s a deep purple pink, which is perfect because it’s like the shade of my lips naturally, but […]

Kilian Back to Black

I’ve been using the KonMari method on my beauty stash, but it’s not going as well as I’d hoped.  I’ve started going through perfumes that I have held on to for years and years, forgetting what they even smell like because I’m constantly moving on to the next one. It’s so hard to get rid […]

Goop G. Day Morning Essentials for the New Year

Happy new year!  Again! As it’s still January, I can’t help but be reflective but also think about what this year is going to bring.  As much as New Year’s Resolutions will be a thing of the past, I can’t help but challenge myself to do better. I should go to sleep earlier, wake up […]

Drybar Velvet Hammer Hydrating Control Cream

The main reason that this is my favourite hair product is that it smells the best, and it smells like Rose perfume.  That’s the short form of this review. If you want a hair cream that smells like a blend of Rose, jasmine, sandalwood, and patchouli, then this be the one.  The good news is […]

Hand Cream That’s Not Greasy from Cerave

First of all, to be honest, I don’t mind a greasy hand cream.  If I’m on the computer anyway, a greasy cream isn’t going to get in the way of what I’m doing.  If I’m watching TV or a movie, then I don’t mind a bit of grease on my hands, but for those of […]
