The essence Shape & Shadows Eye Contouring Palette* contains all of your eye and brow essentials! With 6 products and a double ended brush, there really is everything you need to create a variety of eye looks. I love multi-use products, especially when they are packaged up into a small palette (with a mirror!) that’s perfect for travel. And for just $9.99 you really can’t go wrong with a palette like this!

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?

There are so many great new launches from Essence for Spring/Summer 2017 – the Essence Satin Touch Blushes* being the one I was most excited about! When I was at an Essence event a few weeks ago, these were the products that drew me in the most. Maybe it’s that gorgeous embossing or the neutral tones or simply the fact that I love the formula of the Silky Touch Blushes by Essence. There’s just something about these that make me happy and I left the event looking forward to giving them a try!

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!

When I saw this limited edition set from Kat Von D, I knew I had to grab it to try out some of the brands’ best known products. The Hello Canada set contains 3 minis of Kat’s best selling products all wrapped up inside of a large vegan leather bag.  Although, Kat Von D products have been available in Canada for what feels like years, I am glad they came out with this set. I personally, had never purchased any of the lip products before and who doesn’t love minis? These are handbag or travel essentials – and oh-so perfectly paired with a massive clutch. This would be a great introduction to the brand or a fabulous gift for a friend who purchases cruelty-free! I’ve read that Kat Von D is becoming 100% vegan and all the products contained in this set are vegan. This set is branded as Kat’s most coveted products, which are some of the brands best sellers. Inside of the gorgeous clutch there are 3 minis. There are 2 lippie formulas and a liquid liner, so there is something for most beauty lovers.
