L'Oreal Warehouse Sale Spring 2016 + Haul

The L'Oreal Warehouse Sale began last week, so of course, I went and took a bunch of pictures.  It used to be near York University, but it has moved more east, near Woodbine and Steeles.

I know that it's a bit of a trek to get there, so hopefully my photos will help you decide if it's worth the trip or not.

Ulta 21 Days of Beauty 2016 - Platinum Perks

Ulta's 21 Days of Beauty for 2016 has officially begun.  From March 13, 2016 to April 2, 2016 Ulta is doing daily deals for all shoppers.  But there are also secret deals, available to 'Platinum Members'.  What's a platinum member, you ask?  Similar to Sephora's V.I.B. Rouge program, a person can achieve platinum status by spending $450 in a calendar year.  With the title, comes an extra birthday gift, more coupons, special deals, early access to new releases, and more valuable points, which can be used towards future purchases.

Platinum members even get an additional online deal for the 21 Days of Beauty.  I'll be updating them as they come in, so feel free to come back and check out the deal of the day.

Essence Pure Nude Make-Up Foundation - Review, Swatches, Before & After

As you may know, Essence has released a whole bunch of new products for this upcoming spring/summer season (Check out the launch HERE).  I usually turn to Essence for smaller products, like lip liners and nail polishes, but they are stepping it up, and adding foundation into the mix.

Bonus: this marks the first time I've ever posted a completely makeup-free selfie.  All in the name of cosmetics and journalism!

Face of the Day: Bold Glam

Hiiiiiii!  I've got my attempt at a bold, Jaclyn-Hill inspired look.

For the longest time I've been trying to mimic the was my favourite youtube, Jaclyn Hill, does her liquid eye liner.  She makes a sharp wing in the corner, and connects it to the rest of her eye by applying a thick, yet angular line.  Granted, Jaclyn does a bolder line because she wears falsies, but I like to stick with my natural lashes (Also, I'm terrible at applying falsies).

Dermalogica Charcoal Rescue Masque - Review

That's right, I'm doing a review on skincare!  I tend to steer clear of skincare, because my skin tends to negatively react to almost any skincare I try.  But when I read the ingredients on the Dermalogica Charcoal Rescue Masque*, I thought that this might be my chance to test out how brands products play with my skin.

Tired, lackluster skin now has a fast-acting pick-me-up. New Charcoal Rescue Masque from Dermalogica, which launched in February 2016, detoxifies, brightens, and invigorates all skin conditions, with ingredients that draw out excess oil and impurities, refine pores, calm redness, and improve skin texture and smoothness. With the power to address skin aging, dullness, breakouts, and sensitivity, this heroic skin savior is ideal for anyone looking for a healthy, vibrant, and balanced glow.
