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:

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:

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 “brulé” all over the lid.  I then applied different eyeshadows from Smashbox’s On the Rocks palette: “marzipan” as a highlight on the brow bone, …

Birthstone Beauty June Alexandrite

Birthstone Beauty: June Edition

June is a special month because it has three birthstones: the pearl, the moonstone and the alexandrite. For this makeup look, I was mostly inspired by the alexandrite, a very rare gem that has a particular feature: it changes colour depending on the lighting, going from a bluish-green in daylight, to a purplish-red in incandescent light. More info here.   Image from here. For this makeup look, I decided to play with shimmery and metallic textures, and I used mostly bluish and purple tones. I love the combination of blue and purple on the eyes: it gives a summer vibe to the whole look.   Eyes: From Smashbox’s On The Rocks palette, I used the eyeshadows “Snow” all over the lid, “Peacock” in the center, and “Sapphires” in the outer corner and in the crease. I lined my lid with Sephora’s “matte turquoise” eye pencil. On the waterline is MakeUpForEver’s Lip Liner Concealer in “no 100”. I lined under the eyes using MakeUpForEver’s eyeshadow in “I-922” and Smashbox’s eyeshadow in “Lilac”. On the brow bone is Smashbox’s eyeshadow in …

Birthstone Beauty Emerald May Edition

Birthstone Beauty: May Edition

Ahhh May! My favourite month and such a busy month too: Melissa’s Bday, my own bday (YAAS), and the blog’s bday (see our exciting giveaway)!! I was so excited to create the makeup look using this month’s birthstone because I looove emerald green! Also, the emerald is a symbol of youth and rebirth, and promises good luck. What’s not to love about emeralds? More info here. Image from here. After creating “crazy” looks for the past few Birthstone Beauty looks, I decided to create a more “wearable” look for you guys! So no green lips, and no green blush 😉 I went for a very easy green smokey eye, which I paired with glossy burgundy lips. This look reminds me of autumn, and even though summer hasn’t arrived yet, I have to admit that I long for september and its long, sunny days and cool nights. Eyes: I applied MakeUpForEver’s eyeshadow in “ME304” all over the lid. I then applied L’Oréal’s Ultra concentrated eyeshadow in “Emerald Lame”. In the crease and as a transition colour, I used MAC’s eyeshadow …

MakeUp Eraser Makeup Remover Cloth

The MakeUp Eraser: a Life-Changing Product! | Review

Being a makeup junkie isn’t always good for the environment: wearing a full face of makeup on a daily basis means that those cottons pads are piling up real quick in your trash can… And this breaks my heart  😦  I had been looking for a more ecological solution to makeup remover and cotton pads and I have finally found it: the MakeUp Eraser!! This 38cm x 18cm (7.25″ x 15.5″) piece of cloth is truly magical!! It has changed my beauty routine for the best, and I will never go back to cotton pads and makeup remover! No more harsh chemicals and no more waste! The Eraser comes in two colours: black or bright pink. It has two sides: one for removing the makeup and cleaning the face, and the other for exfoliating. Isn’t that great? All you have to do is wet a portion of the cloth with warm water and gently rub it in a circular motion to remove makeup. Oh, and did I mention that it removes e-ve-ry thing? Waterproof makeup …

Birthstone Beauty April Edition

Birthstone Beauty: April Edition

Hi loves! Wow, I can’t believe how LATE this post is… And can you believe it was really close to never being created? April has by far been the craziest month in my life this year, with the end of semester, having to do more hours at work, going to Vegas (want to know what I bought to Vegas? click here!), and of course, being VERY sick after all this stress… Well, here it is: the birthstone beauty makeup look for the month of April, inspired by the diamond! This birthstone comes in an array of colours, but the coloured ones are more rare than the colourless ones. More info here. Image from here. For this month’s look, I wanted to create something very shimmery, but not too unnatural. The looked came out very fresh-looking, almost bridal, but with a definitely futuristic edge to it. The secret to this look is a natural-looking and glowy foundation, shimmery eyeshadows and “wet looking” brows. Reminder: the Birthstone Beauty series is meant to inspire you to play around with …

sephora plush luxe lash review

Doll up with Sephora’s Plush Luxe False Lash

I am not a huge fan of false lashes but these ones, seriously, got me in love with lashes! The reason why I don’t like to wear false lashes is because I can’t get used to the weight of falsies, the way it blocks my view and the discomfort the band gives me. So yes, I am quite picky on falsies but at the same time, I’m always trying to find THE pair that avoids my pet peeves for falsies. I always wanted to try those Velour lashes that the internet has been raving about. However, by looking at the price at Velour’s.. I don’t feel paying that amount of money for something I might not like in the end. So here, while browsing, I found these Sephora Luxe False Lash in “Plush”.
