    Five products makeup look : running late look

    Who likes to leave their warm bed on a cold morning?For this semester I have a few 8 am classes. As soon as I wake up I ‘d hurriedly rush to prepare to go to class. Most mornings I’ll spend less than 10 minutes to get ready. This includes doing my makeup. As such, my makeup look is pretty easy going, nothing spectacular. If my face looks decent and my lips have a little pop of colour, I’m good to go. I’ll share with you my quick makeup look where I’m incorporating only 5 products. This is my typical rush days look. Clinique City Block Oil-Free Daily Face Protector For…

    My 2017 Wishlist items Review #skincare #makeup

    I see so many things all the time that I wish to get. It sucks when this happens. But I’ll always add it to my wish-list. I am a planner, so if I want something, I’ll aim for it. There are times when some plans don’t come through; hence, I’m unable to get everything I’ll hope for. Also, as time progresses, my taste changes; hence, the items become less desirable. With all this said, I wanted plenty in 2017. Due to different constraints, I picked up only a few of the items on my wishlist. There is a page on my blog that I dedicated to wishlist items. Some of…

    Body Shop Face Mask Review – Ginseng and Rice Mask

    There are claims that rice has properties to make your skin look bright. It is a staple in skin care for many Asian women. People use the rice water as a toner, acne treatment etc. To help even out my skin tone, I decided to try the Body shop Chinese Ginseng & Rice Clarifying Polishing Face Mask. Body Shop Ginseng and Rice Face Mask Review Like I mentioned in other blog posts, I’m a fan of the body shop masks. Hence, I was thrilled to try out this mask. After the first use, I did notice my face looked brighter. However, I felt this mask caused my face to be drier.…

    Ethiopian Honey Deep Nourishing Face Mask Review

    I am a fan of every Body Shop mask I used. In my opinion, Body Shop makes some of the best facial masks out there. Whatever the goal their masks are set out to achieve, it indeed does. The Ethiopian Honey Deep Nourishing Face Mask is no exception. The Ethiopian Honey Deep Nourishing Face Mask Review This mask really does a fabulous job of replenishing, hydrating and moisturising my skin. The best part of the whole experience of using this product is that it makes my skin stay hydrated for a week. So I do not need to re-apply mask throughout the week. When having those busy weeks, it’s nice…

    Current Everyday Morning Skincare Routine

    In one of my previous posts, I wrote about my everyday evening skincare routine. In that post, I promise I’ll also do a blog post on my current everyday morning skincare routine. ‘A promise is a promise’. I incorporate fewer products into my morning routine as opposed to my evening routine. I guess because I already invested a lot of time in prepping my skin for the night. Also, I tend to gravitate towards using my favourite skincare products in my morning routine. (1) Youth to the People Age Prevention Superfood Cleanser Not every morning I’ll use a cleanser. If my skin is more on the drier side, I’ll just…

    Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation Review

    For more than a decade, the Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation has been in the news for good reasons. If I’m to ever splurge on an expensive foundation – C$70 plus tax, it definitely has to be an award-winning one. According to makeup.com the Luminous Silk Foundation won the InStyle “Best Beauty Buy” Award-Winner for “Best Liquid Foundation” & “Perfect Match #1 Makeup Artist’s Choice” for 10th Year in a Row.  In my book, this has to mean something. Plus, It has an incredible range of shade that caters to different skin tone. Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation Review We all want to achieve a flawless look without giving the…

    Cheap but Chic Lipstick : NYC Expert Last Lipcolor review

    During my recent Downtown Toronto trip, I stopped by at the Rexall ( Drugstore) with the intention of not getting anything – we all know that likely won’t happen. Lol!  The makeup’s section was among the first set of areas I checked.  I stumbled upon the NYC lipsticks. I was surprised at how inexpensive the NYC Expert Last Lipcolor (Approx. C$1 and something) were. Plus there were many promotions that were happening at the store on the day during my visit. The one that quickly grabbed my attention was the ‘buy one NYC lipstick and get one for 50%’. A really awesome bargain especially since the lipsticks were already very…
