Maybelline- Fit Me Shine Free + Balance Foundation Stick Review

Maybelline is REALLY killing it in the beauty industry right now, I can’t get over how great their products are.  I am not one to wear foundation, but I had to try the Maybelline Fit Me Shine-Free + Balance Foundation Stick  made for combination skin.  Combination skin is usually referred to as having an oily T-Zone and the rest of the areas of the face being on the dry side.  I have an oily T-Zone and this stick promises to provide a shine-free and balanced complexion so I decided to give it a try, keep reading to find out my thoughts!

Maybelline- The Colossal Big Shot Tinted Primer Review

Mascara, my favourite beauty product!  I feel as though I have tried almost every single mascara from drugstore to high-end, you name it and i’ve probably tried it.  Lashes are something that really completes a makeup look for me, and this is especially because I have hooded eyelids.  Having long lashes helps to hide the hood of your eye, and it also helps to make your eyes appear more open and awake.

One thing I love to incorporate into my mascara routine is a primer.  I started using mascara primers a few years ago, and I notice such a difference in the wear of my mascara- from the longevity to the definition of my lashes.  My all time favourite primer is the Dior- Diorshow Maximizer Primer which retails for C$37.00 at Sephora.   That primer specifically is expensive but it really does give amazing results.  But today i’m here to talk about a more affordable primer from the drugstore that also provides great results.  Maybelline The Colossal Big Shot Tinted Primer has really blown me away.

Maybelline- Face Studio Master Chrome Metallic Highlighter Review

Amazing drugstore product alert!!  This highlighter is to-die-for.  One of the most fun things to post about in the beauty community are products that give high-end results but are actually from drugstore brands and have the drugstore price point.  The Maybelline Face Studio Master Chrome Metallic Highlighter in Molten Gold does exactly this!

The Estée Edit- Pore Vanishing Stick Review

The Estée Edit line– hot or not?  I love Estée Lauder products, but I was somewhat hesitant to try out the Estée Edit line, mainly because of the fact that Kendall Jenner was one of the faces of this line (not a fan of supporting anything related to the Kardashian group) however, I found myself really intrigued by the principles of the line and I had to set my biased opinion toward her aside and try something out.  I picked up the Pore Vanishing Stick.

What’s Up Nails- Canada Day Vinyls Review

Canada Day is just around the corner and I’ve got a special offer for my first 10 readers of this post! Nail Polish Canada has sent me Canada Day nail vinyls by What’s Up Nails, and they are a really great way to dress up your festive look!

They are so easy to use:

Short version of the instructions for application is you apply a topcoat or coloured polish to your nails and let this dry.  Peel off the nail vinyl from the plastic back and apply it to your nail.  Then apply a thin layer of polish over top of this to seal it in.  If you used the entire stencil and not just the leaf vinyl, then you peel back from the edges to remove it while the polish is still wet.  What I like about these vinyls is you have the option to do two things, either use the leaf vinyl as an accent, or the entire stencil and you can colour it in with whatever colour polish you choose.

Nail Polish Canada has been so generous and has offered to give out 10 of these What’s Up Nails Canada Day vinyl sets to 10 of my readers!  If you are one of the first 10 readers of my post you can use the code “T73KS41Q6LO” on their website to get a FREE set!! Just click here.  If were one of the 10 to receive the vinyls let me know in a comment below or email me under my Contact page 🙂

What nail designs will you create for Canada Day??

Conair- Infiniti PRO Hair Dryer and Relfections LED Mirror Review

I am SO excited to share this post with you all!  Conair sent me a hair dryer and mirror and I am absolutely so in love with both products.  Thanks so much to Conair for sending these and the team at Brill Communications.  I’m going to jump right in to the review because I just can’t wait!

The two products I will review today are:

Infiniti PRO Hair Dryer

Reflections LED Mirror

Reviews:

Infiniti PRO Hair Dryer:

WOW! I was blown away (no pun intended 😉 ) by how well this works!! The Infiniti PRO is my favourite hair dryer by far.  I am absolutely so impressed with how well it performs.  This hair dryer has dual voltage, so it is your best-friend when travelling.  My favourite feature is the AC motor because it dries hair faster than a regular hair dryer that has a DC motor.  My hair is dried in half the amount of time it usually takes me compared to when I use my other hair dryer from another brand.  I have fine hair and a lot of the time drying/styling it can be a pain.  Especially when I am getting due for a haircut, however, the Infiniti PRO has ionic technology, so it tames frizz and makes your hair look quite shiny.  I found this to be extra noticeable when I got closer to needing a haircut because my ends weren’t super frizzy after drying my hair.

The Infiniti PRO comes with two attachments, a diffuser to enhance curles and waves, and a concentrator for pinpoint styling.

There are 3 heat settings, 2 speed settings, and a cold shot button to help you lock in the style you create.

I have been using this hair dryer for a month now and I am hooked.  I am so happy with the results, and I love how the dryer is quite small yet it gives big results.  It is smaller in size than the average hair dryer (so easy to pack when travelling),  AND it performs better than other hair dryers I have tried, so it’s a win-win!  Plus the colour of it is purple and that’s always a plus in my books.  You can purchase the Infiniti PRO for C$59.99.

Reflections LED Mirror:

I am loving this mirror! I have been wanting to try a mirror with an LED light, but I wasn’t really sold on the fact that it would really be all that much different than my handheld mirror.  However, since receiving this Conair Reflections LED mirror, I can’t go back to a mirror without the LED light.  This mirror is great because it has two sides, one regular magnification at 1x and the other side at 7x.  The LED light technology is also energy saving, consuming 70% less energy than with a regular bulb.  It has two settings for the intensity of the light as well, so you can have it on low or high, or you can choose to use it with the light turned off as well.

Here is a photo of the mirror without the light turned on:

Here is a photo with the LED light on the higher setting:

This mirror is great for doing your makeup, and anything eyebrows and skin related as it really gives you a close look and shows every pore (although that might be something we don’t want to see hehe).  I love to wear eyeshadow and when I use this mirror it really gives me a close look at where I need to blend, and the LED light helps me to create a look that is flattering in the natural light for a daytime look as well as an evening look.   Another plus is that the mirror doesn’t get all foggy if you leave it out in the bathroom.  I moved recently, but before I moved the exhaust fan in the bathroom didn’t work the best so the mirror on the wall would always get foggy when you took a shower.  Yet I was surprised to see the Conair mirror would not get foggy, this is because it has fog-free and anti-glare viewing!  I also love the oval shape of this mirror and the polished chrome finish, it makes for a beautiful piece to leave out on your vanity.  I have this set up on my bathroom countertop and it really adds to the decor.  It’s really great to have a product that looks really nice aesthetically so you can leave it out as part of your decor and also reach for it easily when you want to use it.   You can purchase the Reflections LED mirror for C$49.99.

I highly recommend both of these products, you will not be disappointed!!  Conair has always been a brand that I have used and trusted, and I truly am so impressed with both of these products, i’m in love!

Have you tried either of these?  What’s your favourite Conair product?
