My 2015 Advent Calendars

Beauty Tea Advent Calendars TheFaceShop Benefit Hard Candy DavidsTea

Last year was my first year with beauty advent calendars.  I got the advent calendar from The Body Shop and enjoyed having a whole month of beauty stuff to open.  This year, it has doubled in price so I decided against getting one and picked up the DAVIDsTEA 24 Days of Tea instead.  Then I picked up three beauty ones that cost me a little more than the one from The Body Shop would have cost.

My Annabelle Favourites

Annabelle Faves

Annabelle (and their sister company Marcelle) are offering a massive 40% off for Black Friday, so I thought I would share some of my Annabelle favourites to help you decide what to buy.

Annabelle True Skin FoundationWhile this is not my all time favourite foundation, I use it a lot for daily use.  I love it or days for when I am not doing full makeup and it applies like a dream – even with your fingers – so is perfect for quickly throwing on some makeup.  It is oil free, which is great for us oily girls and has a soft matte lightweight finish while still evening tone and not appearing flat.  It is a deal at the usual price of $10.95 but is just $6.57 for Black Friday!

Nail Girls Do Movember

THEFACESHOP LovelyMeEx 03 Fashion Item Trend Nail Stickers Movember Mauvember Swatch over Picture Polish New York

Bioderma Sebium Flawless Skin Discovery Kits

Bioderma Sebium Discovery - Box

As winter approaches, my skin suffers even more.  My combination skin just hates winter.  The dry areas get worse and all the added product to combat the dryness doesn’t help the oily areas.  I have been trying out new products in the hope that I can find something that works, and Bioderma Sebium might just be it!

I picked up one of their new flawless skin discovery kits at Shoppers Drug Mart.  They are only $6.95 and include three products to help you perfect your skincare routine.  They also have a hydration kit if that suits your skincare needs better. [Read more…]

MoYou London Nail Art Stamping Kits Review

MoYou Festive Collection Nail Art Stamping Plate Set Trade Secrets Canada

I may have done a happy dance when I heard that Trade Secrets would be selling MoYou products in Canada.  My friends back home love them but with shipping and taxes at the border, they are pricey and many you find online are knockoffs and not etched as well.

Nail stamping kits in stores are actually quite hard to find.  I like to look at what I am buying so it was great to see them in-store as well as online so I picked up a MoYou Festive starter kit and a Fashionista plate.  The available plates in the starter kits are slightly different than the plates sold on their own, so check before buying as I want the Festive plate now for candy canes because it was not in the kit.
