This Yves Saint Laurent Lip Discovery set was available at a VIB Rouge Holiday event at my local store. I’ve rarely found YSL sets to be great value for darker skin or interesting enough to warrant purchasing one. So I was surprised that I was attracted to this year’s set – and it seems like a lot of other people were too, because it’s already sold out online. Maybe you’ll be able to find it in store, and here’s hoping it gets restocked.
I recently picked this palette up from Sephora.ca for $55cad when it was restocked. I didn’t purchase it during the initial launch as I already had Too Faced’s Peach Palette (which I haven’t reached for in over a month). I also didn’t think I needed a palette that leaned so heavily pink.
I paid $59cad for the palette and ordered it online from Sephora.ca on October 4th. If you can’t manage to get it online, it will be in stores on Oct. 15th. I was told to call Oct. 14th to double check.
At the VIB Rouge Holiday Preview I purchased this Too Faced ‘The Chocolate Shop’ set for $72CAD. It’s valued at $347CAD according to Sephora.
I never got my hands on Pat McGrath’s highlighting kit so when I saw the Lust 004 lipstick kit featured on various Snapchats I didn’t have high hopes. And after her site crashed with no sign of coming back up I was sure my fate was sealed, I was never going to get a Pat McGrath product. Imagine my surprise when I happened to be browsing Sephora.ca and saw it.
If you thought my skepticism for ABH products was unwarranted then you’ll definitely think the same of my skepticism for BECCA products. I just get an uneasiness about how many people tout Champagne Pop in spite of the fact that I’ve actually loved every product I’ve tried from her line, including the aforementioned Champagne Pop.
Anyways, I’ve been on this huge cream/bronzer/shine kick recently whereby I need every product that is luminizing. So of course I bought a Becca blush in Snapdragon.
I’m not a huge ABH fangirl. I don’t think most people need a 4 highlighter ‘glow kit’ and have been disillusioned by the number of Youtubers and IGers who seemingly receive her PR kits.
However, I am a true believer in her lip glosses. I love the only shade I have so much that it was 1 of 3 lip products I took with me on a month and a half trip to Asia. It was also the only lip product I actually wore in Asia.
When these Lancôme Juicy Shakers were first released they were featured on bloggers’ Snapchats and Instagrams constantly. Because they all seemed to be either sent to the bloggers or associated with a Lancôme beauty event I was interested in checking them out for myself.
The best thing about Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blushes is their finish, they’re luminous and light-catching without being shimmery or glittery. I haven’t unfortunately had the opportunity to see whether the shade range for blushes is WOC friendly. One of my first blog posts was about the holiday palette which tbh I haven’t used since I got it.
Radiant Magenta however, is a completely different story. This colour is one of my favourites for a 5 minute face. It works with all of my nude/pink lip colours and because of the finish it never looks overapplied.
This is my first travel post on this blog and if you take a moment to look around at other posts you’ll quickly gather the type of person that I am. As such you should use the info that I’m not a budget backpacker to inform this review of our trek and how much it affects your interest in doing a trek like this. But I thought I’d do a review of the trek because I hadn’t seen much update in the past few years and I thought people similar to myself would want some perspective.
