Of all the holiday releases so far, the Fenty Beauty Galaxy Eyeshadow palette caught my eye. I saw this palette popping up in my instagram feed leading up to the release date and just could not resist. I knew I needed to add this beauty to my shadow collection! The promo video, the packaging and the presentation of this palette were simply irresistible. Fenty Beauty has been killin’ it in every single way! I purchased the palette on it’s Friday October 13th release, and have been using it ever since!
The Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette has been a cult-favourite palette for quite some time since it was released last year. This palette comes highly recommended for both formula and colour range. It was many people’s favourite palette of 2016, and I honestly thought that the hype was going to die down into the new year. I still see people rave about this palette, so during the Sephora VIB sale, I decided it was time for me to try this palette out for myself!
After seeing endless hype for the Wet n Wild PhotoFocus Foundation, I needed to give it a try for myself! This liquid foundation retails for just $8CAD (just $5.99 for my US friends) and is getting so many amazing reviews comparing it to higher-end formulas. So, how could I not be intrigued?
Weirdly enough, this product doesn’t claim much at all. Both the packaging and the Wet n Wild website talk about how it performs under lighting conditions. Basically, this is said to give you camera-ready skin and reduce the white cast caused by photography. Strange claims. There is nothing about coverage, longevity, skin concerns. This was pretty weird to me when I started seriously looking into the product, but for $8 it was worth trying out on my own. I do love that Wet n Wild offers this in 20 shades, which is a great selection! The range does seem to be lacking in selection for darker skin tones, however.
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!
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!
