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.

Happy Saturday beauties!  So excited to be bringing you this recap of the Dave Lackie VIP Dinner for Guerlain #GuerlainLover I got to attend last week.  First of all I am still in shock I got to attend this event for one of the most iconic brands, I am seriously still in the “someone pinch me” state!  The venue was absolutely GORGEOUS, I have been to the Arcadian Court before, but this time it was absolutely magical.  Dave, his team and Guerlain really did an amazing job and this venue was beautifully decorated.  Upon arrival I could see the Guerlain products on display and the ambiance of the room was so mesmerizing I fell in love instantly.

Jason Wu- Fragrance for her VIP Dave Lackie Dinner Event

I am beyond thrilled that I get to write a recap of Dave Lackie’s VIP dinner for Jason Wu and the launch of his first fragrance for her.  I was so lucky to get invited to attend at Canoe Restaurant et Bar in Toronto this past Monday and I am still in the “Someone pinch me” state.  I was in awe with the spectacular view as we were on the 54th floor of the Toronto-Dominion Centre.  Upon arriving I could see the CN Tower directly in view from the window where I was standing, and there were gorgeous displays of flowers and Jason Wu’s fragrance bottles surrounding them.  The packaging for this fragrance is beyond beautiful.  A gorgeous thick glass with a gold circular top and the fragrance itself is a light pink almost rose gold colour- I fell in love instantly.

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??
