Sephora Haul VIB Rouge Sale Glamglow Caudalie First Aid Beauty Origins Holiday Kits

Sephora Holiday Haul: VIB Sale 2016

Whoooa you guys!! This month has been FLYING by! November was crazy busy for me, both at work and at school, which is why I decided to spoil myself a little at the Sephora VIB & VIB Rouge sale (as if I needed to justify myself for buying more makeup hehe!). I took advantage of the 20% off sale to splurge on those lovely holiday kits that Sephora released, and since I needed to renew my skin care products, well this sale proved to be very timely 😉 Now I promise I’ll try my best to stop buying anything from Sephora in 2016 😉 I bought a total of 4 gift sets:

Shop Miss A Makeup Nails Haul Shopmissa.com

Obsessed With: ShopMissA.com !

Last month we have discovered a very COOL site where you can buy makeup, accessories, makeup tools, nail polishes, all those goodies that fall under the beauty umbrella for 1$ USD. Yes, 1 DOLLARRR! So basically, around 1,30$ CAD. And also we call it a double haul because we both purchased things separately from ShopMissA. We have already tried out a few things and we will leave our review on different posts, so stay tuned! Before starting off talking about the things we bought, here are some of our thoughts on general points:

Emptied Repurchased Favourite Beauty Products Marcelle Caudalie Stila Origins Lise Watier

Top 5 Emptied + Repurchased

We all have a few favourite beauty products that we recommend to all of our friends and that we keep buying over and over again, but we never really take a moment to think about how essential these products are in our life… If I were a little more philosophical I would say that these products even shape who we are, but I’m not getting into that 😉 Let me introduce to you my top 5 emptied and repurchased products!

Elf Haul

My Spontaneous e.l.f. Haul: Brushes and More

When it comes to makeup (and many other things), cheaper is sometimes better, at least for your wallet. With so many beauty brands out there with so many different price ranges, it becomes a complicated task to choose what to buy from which company. I had never tried e.l.f. before but since I heard good things from them, I decided it was time to try out a few products. I was mostly curious about their brushes and when I found out the highlighter palette was 6$…I couldn’t resist! In the end, I got these:

Dior Lip Glow Colour Reviver Balm Review

Revive Your Natural Lips with Dior’s Addict Lip Glow?

Talking about magic, you all! Last month, I got this wonderful gift, something that I’ve never experienced before and never heard of before! This Dior Addict Lip Glow is very magical and I think it is worth to share with you what I have to say about this lipstick. The Dior Addict Lip Glow is a balm to hydrate your lips and revive your natural lip colour. The line comes in 2 shades, in sheer natural pink and sheer coral pink. The one I received is in sheer natural pink. When you apply it, it gives a very beautiful and natural shine.

Birthstone Beauty July Edition Ruby

Birthstone Beauty: July Edition

July’s birthstone is the ruby, and is said to guarantee many great things such as success in love. Maybe that’s why red is associated to love, and why red lips are so fascinating… More info about the gem here. Image from here. For this look I was inspired by 1950’s Hollywood glam, which is what a ruby makes me think of. I adapted the look to the season: dewey skin, matte eyeshadows, etc. Overall, it’s a minimalist look, with a strong focus on the ruby-coloured lips. It is very easy to recreate, and any woman, no matter her age, can pull off this look. I think every woman should focus on her most beautiful/favourite assets when doing her makeup. For this look, the lips are very bright, but the bold brows are also very present and the skin is very natural-looking. Eyes: After applying primer on my lids, I used MAC’ eyeshadow in “brulĂ©” all over the lid.  I then applied different eyeshadows from Smashbox’s On the Rocks palette: “marzipan” as a highlight on the brow bone, …

Caudalie Skincare Obsession

Obsessed With: Caudalie!

Let’s be honest: who doesn’t love wine? Especially when it takes care of your skin! This is exactly what Mathilde Thomas and her husband had in mind when they founded Caudalie, the cosmetics brand originating from Bordeaux, France. Born in a family that owns a vineyard, Mathilde quickly realized the rich potential of grapes. Together with Professor Vercauteren, one of the world’s specialists in polyphenols (the magic ingredient that is found in grape seeds), they formulated a few face creams that were initially sold in pharmacies in Bordeaux. They quickly set up their own team of researchers, in order to offer the best of what grapes have to offer. But why are grapes so special? They contain polyphenols, powerful anti-oxidants that act as amazing skin youth protectors. Grapes also contain resveratrol, a powerful anti-ageing agent, and viniferine, the most effective natural molecule that fights dark spots. The company’s ethics are also impeccable: in 2006, they removed parabens from all products, and they are also very committed to ecology. Read more about this here. With so many …
