Merry Christmas to Me
So here's my Christmas haul, normally I wouldn't be posting on Christmas Day, but Ontario begins lockdown tomorrow so I am unable to spend it with my partner this year (Long distance relationships am I right? 😭) I've been after a PML palette for a little while but they are so expensive, so I decided I'd purchase the #Pat McGrath Labs - Eye Ecstasy Kit First Edition Limited Release[products]# because it was way cheaper than anything else available on Sephora Canada, and it comes with #Pat McGrath Labs - Crystalline Prismatic Pigment[products]#in Angel Dust and a PAT McGRATH LABS - Fetisheyes Lengthening Mascaramini. I also bought PAT McGRATH LABS - Eyedols Eye Shadowin Gold Standard because it was on sale for $13CAD. I also purchased KVD VEGAN BEAUTY - Alchemist Holographic Palettewhich I have been eyeing for YEARS and it was also on sale for $13CAD so I snatched that up as soon as I saw it. The shimmer doesn't show very well in my image but I want you all to know "holographic" is not an exaggeration. I've been experiencing a lot of issues with my skin lately, so I purchased The Ordinary - Lactic Acid 10% + HAand The Ordinary - Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solutionbecause there's a lot of hype around these products and I'm confident they will help with my specific issues, and I already have The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% and The Ordinary - Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 which both work well for me. I am excited to try all these products and I will review each of them at some point. P.S. does anyone else collect all the sequins that come in your PML packaging or is it just me?
TJMAX makeup haul
So went to TJ MAX today and I think I made out pretty well. I luv goin there I always find something good. Everything I got I think was 1/2 off the original price. I looked things up online and some is on sale right now but still got it for cheeper. KVD VEGAN BEAUTY - Alchemist Holographic Palette Got this one for $3.99 US think on sale now for 10 stila - Little White Lies Liquid Eyeshadow $5.99 on sale for 8original is 24 KVD VEGAN BEAUTY - Metal Crush Extreme Highlighter $3.99 don’t remember how much online lol ANASTASIA Beverly Hills - Riviera Eyeshadow Palette $19.99 online for 45.00 don’t think it’s on sale either Haven’t used anything yet just got it but you should definitely check out your TJ MAX from time to time i think they get all the over stock and stuff that don’t sell from other stores that’s why it’s so cheap. Give a look I’m sure you’ll find something😸😸
Rare Beauty Review: Obsessed
SO...just ignore my forehead wrinkles for a second (working on popping the Botox cherry), this foundation and primer is AMAZING. Let me start by saying that prior to this, I have never used liquid foundation of any kind. Ever. I used loose powder from Physicians Formula which I’ve stuck with since high school. I decided that I should be a big girl and get a basic minimal fresh face to wear to work. I’m a lawyer, so having cakey dried skin wasn’t my best look (the loose powder dried me out). I took a leap of faith and ordered a bunch from Rare beauty because I love Selena Gomez and I also LOVED that she wasn’t a “makeup” girl. I needed products that did not require expertise and let me tell you, a monkey could make this stuff look flawless. I used the Rare Beauty - Always an Optimist Illuminating Primer which made me glowy and dewy followed by Rare Beauty - Liquid Touch Weightless Foundation with the rare foundation brush and I’m stunned it took me this long. The result was a beautiful poreless dewy finish that feels like nothing on my skin. I added a little blush with my fingers and boom. Here I am. I feel amazing and I think it truly made my skin look great ( and I have bad skin). If you’re a makeup guru and you see flaws, let me live in my dream world lol. All tips are welcome though! I’ll brb, buying every product that Selena makes.
GRWM: Rare Beauty full face! Worth the hype?
10 minute makeup with Rare Beauty! YES WORTH IT! Rare Beauty launched last month and the crazy obsessed makeup junkie in me bought EVERYTHING and it’s been completely worth it! Overall the entire line is easy to use and can meet the needs of many who wear makeup! Products in order of video appearance: Rare Beauty - Always an Optimist Illuminating Primer The primer doesn’t do much, but add hydration, glow perfect for all skin tones, and soothes skins. You can do without this, but I am enjoying the extra glow! Rare Beauty - Positive Light Liquid Luminizer Highlight I’m medium/tan olive and the shade Flaunt is the perfect highlighter shade. I prefer to apply this under my foundation for a light from within glow. Rare Beauty - Liquid Touch Weightless Foundation Buildable coverage with NATURAL FINISH. Not for those who want a full beat, this is on the more natural side and I personally love it. I wear shade 360W (warm olive) the entire range runs on the warmer side. I absolutely love how quick and easy this is to apply. Rare Beauty - Liquid Touch Foundation Brush Honestly one of my new favorite foundation brushes! Doesn’t leave streaks, you can stipple, pack, or buff with this brush. Super light weight and the shape is great for everywhere on the face. Rare Beauty - Liquid Touch Brightening Concealer I personally love this concealer. You can match your shade to your foundation. This may not be the best coverage for someone who wants a full coverage. Minimal almost no creasing! Rare Beauty - Liquid Touch Concealer Brush AGAIN I love the brushes! This brush was modeled after our fingers and it feels pretty close to the soft touch of a finger blending in your concealer. Fits perfect under the eyes. Rare Beauty - Soft Pinch Liquid Blush A little goes a LONG way. Do not apply over powder!! This has to be applied a certain way for it to work. I prefer with a brush right on top of unset foundation. This has enough pigment to show still after setting powder. I have the shade LOVE - a warm terracotta. Rare Beauty - Perfect Strokes Matte Liquid Liner Docked a star because I am truly not a big fan of brush tip liners, but this liner did an EXCELLENT job. Easy to use and very precise. Rare Beauty - Lip Souffle Matte Cream Lipstick My favorite product and now my most worn red! A creamy airy texture that is very buildable for a soft or powerful look. Wearing the shade INSPIRE. Rare Beauty - Always an Optimist 4-in-1 Prime & Set Mist I’m not big on setting sprays anymore and I could probably do without this, but this is refreshing and revived my makeup if it looks too powdery. Rare Beauty - Blot & Glow Touch-Up Kit This is always in my purse, actually great for touch ups! #cheriepartner #cheriecreator
Groovy kinda Love🌈

So many highlights to my blue day l!! 😂
Lol I honestly just feel that a lot off highlighters work. I don’t think I have come across any bad ones ... to name a few, (I also have a YouTube channel) but I used these... FULL VIDEO IS in my YOUTUBE CHANNEL in my bio! BECCA - Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Highlighter wet n wild - MegaGlo Highlighting Powder tarte - Amazonian Clay 12-hour Highlighter MAYBELLINE - FaceStudio Master Chrome Metallic Highlighter ANASTASIA Beverly Hills - Amrezy Highlighter L.A. COLORS - Strobing Powder All of this highend AND low budget have not failed me !!!! Hope this helps !!! 🥰
Today’s look 👀 must say Sephora brand foundation really good one thing I didn’t like was its super full coverage but goes on smoothly didn’t dry out on my face and also contorted my oily zones. Over all it’s good but I will only use it if going to party or wedding for that full Matt face coverage I got that for hella cheap from TJ MAX FOR ONLY $3.99 yes in Sephora it’s like $20.
Flipping for Color Flip / Duo Chrome
These are my go to date night, going out, get fancy eye colors. They add a pop of sexy mystery to your eye look without having to use multiple shadows. They are the ideal shadows for hazel eyes because they are basically hazel shadows! From left to right: 1. This one is URBAN DECAY - URBAN DECAY Single Eyeshadow in Tonic. I just got it and I don’t have anything to compare it to yet! The next 3 are the ones I wear alllll the time and I get tons of compliments every time: 2. URBAN DECAY - URBAN DECAY Single Eyeshadow in Lounge - A gorgeous emerald/brown/red shift. If you use a good primer it won’t have any fall out and it’s just SO pretty. Some nice metallic brown liner and black mascara and you will look like a fierce feline. 3. NATASHA DENONA - Star Eyeshadow Palette in Orion - This one is a bit more teal/ruby but the texture is really strange. It’s very creamy and hard to work with with a brush. When you try to pick it up it kind of crumbles all over. It’s really pretty once you get it on but you really need to use eye pads and do you eye make up first to avoid fall out though. It’s my least favorite of the bunch. 4. BUXOM - Customizable Eyeshadow Bar Single Refills in No Faux (Iridescent Snakeskin) - Very similar to the Urban Decay color an emerald/brown/red shift. Good texture. Maybe just a bit more of a brown tone than the Urban Decay. 5. ANASTASIA Beverly Hills - Eye Shadow Single in Dragonfly - This one is more of a blue/black tone. I was trying this one out to see how it would play with green/brown hazel eyes but I’m not totally convinced yet. My eyes can look dark and witchy very fast. Does anyone have any color shift/duochrome shadows that you love?? I’m always looking for new ones!
Champagne Gold Eyeshadow! SO Beautiful!
URBAN DECAY - URBAN DECAY Single Eyeshadow- Space Cowboy Bobbi Brown Luxe Eye Shadow - Moonstone Comparison of both shades: The base shade: Both of them have a very light champagne gold shade base that is barely visible on the eyelids. Space Cowboy has a warm toned base shade, while Moonstone has a neutral toned gray-brown shade. Color of shimmers: The shimmers of Space Cowboy are more silver white, while the shimmers of Moonstone are more gold. Degree of shimmers: The shimmers of Space Cowboy are less dense but the silver white makes it more dazzling. However, the shimmers of Moonstone are denser, so they're actually neck to neck. Conclusion: They are similar, but Moonstone is more expensive than Space Cowboy. People who are more price-sensitive should go for Space Cowboy.
My Top 5 Ride or Die products! I am so obsessed! 😍 Pat McGrath Bronze Temptations palette VDL Lumilayer Primer Covergirl Exhibitionist Mascara Milk Kush Growhouse Philip B pH Restorative Leave In
I recently found this amazing hair vinegar from Althea which I was too hesitant to try at first but due to the enormous amazing reviews about it, I gave in and I am so glad I did. . I am usually very scent-sitive but this one is an exception. I am absolutely obsessed with the sweet raspberry smell that lingers for hours. I have always have this dilemma with itchy and oily scalp that doesn't go away even after trying so many products except this one. It made my hair manageable, soft and bouncy. I don't think I am going back to regular conditioner anytime soon. So, buh-bye Creamsilk 😝 . The only biggest downside is the packaging. Good thing Sarahthecara gave me an idea to transfer into a spray bottle for easy application especially on the scalp and also to avoid wasting it because it was dripping on my neck and face 😅
It’s a 10’s lightweight sister
I found this to be comparable to the its a ten leave in conditioner that I use but a much more liquid consistency! And I think due to that it isn’t as heavy duty. I do still like this though, it smells amazing and it it doesn’t weigh down my curls like the its a ten does. This retails for $25 and its cruelty free 🧡

my go to s for lazy hair
love these! when staying home all the time these just help enhance my natural hair! the redkin oil helps with frizz and nourishes my ends and the air and the matrix helps my natural hair come through and forms more of a natural curl! love love love
I have been using the soldejaneiro Copacabana Bronze Glow oil since it came out last summer and I have loved it since day one! I still have the old bottle that doesn’t have a pump but I’ll get over it 😭 this stuff is like a tan in a bottle! I apply it all over my body for that killer bronzed glow that looks like you just came home from a tropical vacay. I also like to just apply it on my décolleté sometimes depending on what I’m wearing / where I’m going. My favourite thing about this product is that I’ve never noticed it transferring onto my clothes! Even when I wear white I’m safe with this bronzy oil. And of course, the scent is to die for! I know bronzing oils / lotions can be scary, but here are my tips for an effortless tan! ✨ Apply the lotion before you get dressed ✨ Apply in even motions ✨ Try to put less on feet, knees, elbows & hands as these areas are covered by thinner skin and always appear darker ✨ Wash your hands after application ✨ Sit in your robe for about 15 mins after applying to allow it to dry down properly. Once it’s dry it won’t transfer to your clothes!

My Mental Wellness Improved Through My Self AcceptanceWhen I was around 13 or 14 years old, I remember routinely taking one of my older sister’s black eyeliner pencils before school every morning. I’d arrive early so that I could slip away to the girl’s bathroom to apply a single black line to my eyelids. My parents didn’t allow me to wear any makeup at the time. Although this smudgy line on my eyelids didn’t make me look all that much different, I never felt comfortable at school without it. My teenage mind convinced myself that I needed some sort of cosmetic symbol in order to appropriately express my femininity. Up until that point in my life, society had told girls that looked like me - tall, Black, and with kinky hair - that we somehow weren’t as beautiful as the other girls. For far too long, I believed it too.Feb. 17
