The Holy Grail – Eye Shadow Primer

Hello boys and gals! I have been out of the loop as school and work has been hectic! I am excited to tell you all (drum roll please!) that I have found some new employment which is back in the beauty industry! I am super excited as it is at a Cosmetic Surgery and Skin Care Center which is going to be an amazing learning experience and more new things to blog about.

I also wanted to do a little product review on my new fave make up product. I am excited to share what I think may be the most amazing eye shadow primer ever! I am not really big on primer more so because it never works, I have tried a MAC primer and one by Jane Iredale and they just didn’t do the trick. I was subscribed to IPSY for a while and hoarded a bunch of samples which I am still trying to work my way through and one of the products I started using a month ago turned into my absolute favourite, the Continue reading

Current Makeup Obsessions

A girl never quite feels her best until she has doused herself in pink powder, black liner and something glossy. During the week I seldom wear makeup as I go to the gym in the morning and head to work, my work environment involves trampolines so wearing a full face of makeup just doesn’t quite fit. I find I am lucky in that way as my skin gets a breather and I save a good 15 minutes getting ready. I am makeup obsessed so when I do get a chance to doll up I love to go out. February involved lots of outings, from V-day to some parties and get togethers, so I thought it would be a good excuse to head over to Sephora and pick up a few “necessities.” Continue reading

Foundation – Splurge or Save?

I love a good make-up kit, but using a $100 foundation everyday for work just doesn’t seem feasible or budget friendly to me. So I have opted to use a drugstore foundation for everyday wear and a Splurge for weekend date nights and events.

Splurge or Save

Here is my budget vs. splurge: Continue reading

Then I thought a rant and rave, a good one of course is due for this product. OMG guys! Its great. The main reason I love it Continue reading
