One of my favourite times as a beauty junkie is when the Sephora Spring VIB sale finally rolls around! This event happens only twice a year, and members receive 15% off of everything in-store and online. As I’m a VIB member, the sale begins tomorrow morning, but I’ve been stocking up items in my shopping cart over the last week in preparation for the discount! So today, I thought I’d show you the products I’m coveting.
I’ve been on a bit of a Pacifica Beauty bender and recently decided to pick up the Pacifica Solar Complete Color Mineral Palette. My Pacifica collection is definitely growing – I’ve been coveting everything by the brand! From their quality, to their ethics, I am behind everything they have to offer, and this palette is no exception!
This palette does it all
With 6 eyeshadows, 1 blush, 1 bronzer and 3 cream highlighters, this palette has got all the essentials to create a full faced look. The colour palette evokes spring/summer perfectly! The shade selection is very complimentary, even with the addition of gold and blue. It’s easy to create a full-faced, cohesive look because all these elements pair so well together. I’ve been mixing up the way to use these elements and have found they perform well no matter the context. Bonus points! Both the blush (Flushed) and bronzer (Bronzed) make a gorgeous all-over lid shades for a single shadow look! The eyeshadow Glow is an unreal highlight on the top of the cheek bones! And all of the highlighters make gorgeous lip toppers in place of gloss. Talk about multi-use! This palette really does it all!
You may know that I like to share my current favourites from time to time! However, I realized I hadn’t posted a Loving Lately round up for over a year… So I figured it’s time to let you guys know what I’m currently loving. There’s a mix of makeup and lifestyle items that I can’t get enough of at the moment, so let’s just jump on in!
My current faves
For my first “Loving Lately” post in over a year, this round up may seem quite boring. I’ve been wearing very tonal, easy makeup most days and relaxing as much as I possibly can in downtime. I haven’t been feeling well, and so I’ve been working from home a lot, so haven’t been wearing much makeup. But I have been really loving these items I’ve found myself reaching for the most.
When I spotted the Real Techniques Ultimate Base Set last week I couldn’t resist picking it up. My intention was to revisit the Miracle Complexion sponge as I have used it in the past (loved it!) and wanted to try it out again. However, this trio lured me in as it contains the sponge and 2 brushes all in a limited-edition set. Unfortunately, as I’m sitting down to write this review, it looks like it’s no longer available! But no need to worry, all of these tools are available individually. So why don’t I let you know my thoughts on the contents?
The new Matt Matt Matt lipstick formula from Essence has just released and it’s a good one! With a selection of 8 shades in this new launch, there is something to suit everyone’s matte lipstick needs! And at $4.49CAD each, these suit every budget too! You honestly can’t go wrong with this new product launch.
Now that I’m here writing up this post, I really wish I would have just picked up the last shade to finish off the collection! But oh well, 7 of 8 is plenty to give my full thoughts, you get the point, right? I’ve been wearing this formula exclusively for the past week and so I have lots to say about them. Let’s just hop right in!
