Compare-a Mascara

Ah the never ending quest for that holy grail of natural mascaras… I’ve tried a few, and although none have exclusive ‘holy grail’ status, they all have something great about them.  Here’s what I think:

Benecos Natural Eyebrow Designer Pencil Review

I have just been using blends of eye shadows for when I do my eyebrows up to this point, so when this little beauty arrived in my True Beauty Box I was excited to try it out!

Purely You Minerals Lip Balm in Berry Red Lips Review

I received a sample of a lip gloss from Purely You Minerals in ochre with my September EcoEmi box and I liked it so much I wanted to give another colour a try too.  Ochre satisfied the warm, burnt orange fall lip colour, so I was pulled towards the Berry Red Lips gloss for the deep berry colour that is always in style for fall.  I have to say that I am very impressed with all aspects of this lip colour and will definitely be looking into other shades.

Cheeky Cosmetics Tinted Lip Gloss in Delish – Review

Cheeky Cosmetics is a great Canadian cosmetics company that makes only vegan products and have gone as far as to be certified vegan.  They definitely don’t sacrifice on pigments, though, and stay right on trend with great, vibrant colours, as well as the neutrals and more natural shades.  I have liked their shadows for a while but this is the first lip colour I have tried by this company.  My review is somewhat mixed, but that being said I would still be interested in purchasing other shades as well.

Eco Emi September 2013 Unboxing and First Impressions

I was so excited when Eco Emi announced that they’d be shipping to Canada! I registered right away.  Eco Emi is a subscription box service that ships samples of eco-products right to your door every month.  There aren’t many available in Canada just yet, so the pickings are rather slim, but if you are wondering about whether or not to sign up for Eco Emi I would absolutely reccommend it.  This month’s box was very exciting and has all kinds of great products I couldn’t wait to try!

Jane Iredale Dream Tint Makeup Review

I have liked Jane Iredale makeup for a while now, and I can’t believe it’s taken me this long to try their tinted moisturizer!  I am truly lucky to have fairly good skin, so I usually look for foundations with light coverage and Dream Tint gives me the perfect amount to let the best parts of my skin shine through while evening out the rest.  Granted, I still need some concealer to hide the genetic dark circles on bad days, but for the most part I can just go with this and a little setting powder.

Lavera Eye Liner Review

I tried a few benecos liners recently, and although I really like them a lot, they just didn’t have a good brown so I kept looking around.  When I found a brown liner by Lavera I was sold…..but then I found the blue one.  I couldn’t decide, so I splurged and went for both.  Liner and mascara are my standard go-to eye makeup for a quick look when I’m short on time.  These little pencils didn’t disappoint.
