Product Review: Almay One Coat Mega Volume Mascara

When I don't have mascara on, I just don't feel human and look asleep. A great mascara is my true must-have and I use A LOT of it. I have found a great go-to and have been using that same brand for years but was excited to try out the Almay One Coat Mega Volume when Influenster sent it to me complimentary for review purposes. 

Now I'll quit with the chit chat, here's the 411:

The Good:
1. The cone wand was surprisingly good at reaching the outer corner hairs
2. It doesn't flake off during the day
3. Great volume and lengthening effect
4. The formula was not clumpy at all

The Not So Good:
1. One of my application techniques is to also apply from the top and the thicker brush meant that I got way too much of the product on my actual eye lid
2. Not sure why it's called "one coat", I def used MULTIPLE coats

Baby Blues

Blouse: RW&CO // Pants: Zara // Heels: Jessica Simpson //Handbag: Milly // Bracelet: Hermes

I am very behind on blog posts as work has been a little crazy and let's face it, I've been a little lazy. A lot of things have happened since these pictures were taken:

1. My brassy ponytail has been toned.
2. It is no longer summer.
3. I have gone to all 4 Atlantic provinces.
3. And enough time has passed where my pony tail needs to get re-toned.

Ok maybe not too many things happened in that period after all.

I may have gone around looking like a nursery that day but looking back, I still think that blue bomber is the (or .ca - there is no discrimination over here).

Product Review: Bite Beauty Amuse Liquified Lipstick

In case you haven't gotten the memo, liquids are solid! I used to never opt for the liquid lipstick because I always thought they were messy and now I don't know how I ever passed them up. The applicators make it so easy and almost eliminate the need to line your lips.

Influenster has recently sent me three Bite Beauty Amuse liquified lipsticks to review in the following shades:

1. Flambe 
2. Demi Glace
3. Eclaire

My general thoughts regardless of the shade:

1. The shades were very pigmented 
2. Applicators were easy to use and allowed you to line your lip shape
3. Hydrating feel
4. Smelled (and tasted) great
5. Shiny finish was a nice change up from my usual matte stains
6. My only con is that the colour easily transferred over to my teeth

This is the Flambe shade. A really intense orangey red that will be a great transition to Fall.

The Demi Glace was just not a great colour on my skin tone. It was a little too brown and didn't have enough pink undertone for a good neutral lip.

The Eclaire shade was more barbie pink than I typically go for a light pink shade..but I wasn't mad at it!

Back At It Again

Dress: Dynamite // Sunglasses: Rayban // Shoes: Valentino 

Six months after my surgery, I am slowly re-training myself to wear heels. I can't exactly get my foot into all my heels anymore but if I'm going to be limited to wider straps and lower (for me) heels then they might as well be Valentino.
