I have this strange tendency to fall in love with pretty much any large city I visit. New York? Fabulous! Toronto? I want to live there! Paris? Always looking forward to going back! Stockholm? It feels like home! And the list goes on… Nevertheless, I have a very special place in my heart for my hometown, Montreal. So when Modern Map Art offered we do a review of a Montreal map poster, the answer was very obvious 😉
For those who don't know, there's an iPad and a skin tone detector at the Sephora store for you to determine your skin colour. After scanning your face with that device, the clever Sephora will save your result into your account and match you with all the possible foundations on their site. Hurray for technology for making our shopping life easier than ever and saving my lazy ass too! In fact, I personally do not like to shop at the store, I feel too overwhelmed and shopping online is a lot more resourceful! Without doing test swatches at the Sephora store, I directly ordered a foundation from their site to see whether the Color IQ is really that intelligent.
It seems like summer has finally arrived in Montreal after countless days (and nights) of rain. I hope that the nice weather stays for a while, but I’m already excited for September and its cool nights, sunny afternoons, and never too hot or too cold weather. What can I say, I am an autumn girl at heart!

So! Kat Von D released some new liquid lipsticks during spring and she has been teasing us on Instagram with all the new colours. A lot of them are in the cool tones with a few crazy colours. For this new everlasting liquid lipsticks collection, it happened that she came out with a shade called “Lovecraft” which was the same name as one of the shades in the Studded Lipstick line. It also happens that I own that studded lipstick and it is my ultimate favourite go-to lipstick for everyday looks. And I was crazy enough about the shade and wanted to see how it would look in a liquid lipstick form. In this post, I will focus less on the review part but I just wanted to do a comparison of both products. I thought it would be fun to write it about my thoughts. To be honest, I am not a fan of liquid lipsticks since the beginning. I just think they were over hyped. Every single company came out with a line …
We have tried and tested Maison Jacynthe’s natural spray deodorant and the brand new perfume Vingt-Deux. Click the link to read what we thought of these products!
Time for June’s Boxycharm! This box wasn’t planned (talking like it was an accident), well sort-of. May’s was supposed to be my last box but since I kind of forgot to unsubscribe at the end of the month, when I remembered to cancel it I started considering to maybe keep it for another 3 months. It’s actually a great subscription box but by the end of 6 boxes, I think I will have enough makeup for 6 other girls! So this month’s box… I wasn’t as impressed as the last one, to be honest. One thing’s for sure, I am super happy to get the Realher’s Playbook eyeshadow palette I – Be your own kind of beauty. It was the highlight of the box for me. Realher’s no.1 Playbook eyeshadow palette, $28.00: You either get palette number 1, 2 or 3. The no.1 is a very neutral brown palette. It carries a lot of shimmer shadows and 2 satin finish (Strong & Smart). You can do a lot of smoky looks with this one. The pigmentation is ok …
Back in May, Tarte announced a crazy deal on their website and social media accounts: 7 items for 84CAN$. I had told myself that I wouldn’t buy makeup for a little while, but hey: who listens to that kind of negativity?! 😉 Anyhow, this deal was too good to pass on so I purchased the kit and I so don’t regret it!
Sephora is having a crazy summer sale at the moment! Here is Marika’s haul, featuring Anastasia Beverly Hills, Tarte, and Urban Decay!
