Can't go wrong with Jansport bags! They're an amazing price for the quality, these will last you for years. They even come with a lifetime warranty, which I think it a great bonus and a great teller of how much the brand believes in their products. I love how they have a multitude of different types of bags to choose from with different sizes and inside compartments that cater to your needs. I currently have one with a 15 inch laptop sleeve as well as a tablet sleeve, which is perfect for when I want to bring my electronics to school. They're also super sturdy, and the straps are cushioned so it doesn't hurt to carry around. Love love love!
I'm not a person who likes thick, long socks so these are PERFECT for me! I wear them all year round. If it's a bit colder outside, they're thin enough to double up without feeling uncomfortable. These are super great especially because they are SO affordable! Been repurchasing these for years now and will be for a long time.
These leggings are my absolute favourite! Honestly feels like you're wearing nothing because of the way they move with you. I bought them a few years ago when I joined the Rugby team because I needed some good leggings to wear during conditioning practices. They've only now just started to show signs of wear. A great price considering the quality of the product! Will definitely be repurchasing these.
Review for: Juicy Couture Viva la Juicy Eau De Parfum more...
I received complimentary samples of Viva La Juicy from Influenster and Juicy Couture for testing purposes.
I tested the fragrance for a full week and I've now added it to my Christmas wishlist! I think it should be a staple in anyone's fragrance collection.
The biggest thing I was concerned about was the lasting power of the fragrance. If I, as a minimum-wage earning college student, am going to be dishing out $110 for a full size (100 mL), I want it to go a long way. I'm quite happy to report that it does! I've been putting on this perfume around 7:30 AM every day and can still smell it while I'm getting ready for bed at 11 PM. The scent does fade throughout the day, but not enough that I feel the need to reapply. I will mention that it is noticeably longer lasting if you spray it directly onto clothes, rather than skin.
Now, let's talk about the scent itself. I believe it is a beautiful, versatile scent that anyone would love! The featured notes are wild berries, jasmine and vanilla, and I also noticed subtle hints of amber. My favourite thing about this scent is that it's perfect for any occasion. Whether you're going to school or a party with friends, it's a highly wearable scent while not being too overpowering. It's both a playful yet musky scent, which gives off the "highly successful woman who also knows how to party" vibe!
After testing out the fragrance for a full week straight, I was highly impressed and I now know why it became such a cult classic. I truly recommend this product!
Burt's Bees does lip balms really well! They're always long lasting and very moisturizing. However, I prefer the original Beeswax version instead of this one. The Ultra Conditioning lip balm feels really greasy on my lips and it's almost too uncomfortable to wear. Something about the scent also makes me nauseous so I end up not wearing it that much. Wish it worked better for me, but it's okay because I will stick to the original Beeswax one!
Love the bronzer shade in St. Lucia! Not a big fan of the blush though, as. I've found it doesn't really show up that well on my skin. Both of the powders are more chalky than I would like them to be, but you can make them work. They have great pigmentation and are affordable so I would definitely still pick this duo up and try it if you get the chance.
I received the Plum Basics palette as a birthday gift and I love it so much! The shadows are creamy, pigmented, easy to blend and definitely buildable if you want more colour. They also don't crease throughout the day which is a huge bonus. I will definitely be looking into purchasing the other varieties of this palette very soon.
Impressive amount of coverage considering it is a CC cream. I have a lot of redness in my cheeks and this does a great job of covering it without feeling cakey on the skin. One thing I will mention is that it gives more of a dewy finish, which is one minor drawback for me because I have super oily skin! However, this is easily fixed by applying some setting spray or powder throughout the day. At $50 a pop, it's pretty pricey in my opinion but also worth the splurge. It comes with 32 mL of product which lasts a long time because a little goes a long way.
Considering that Essence is a very affordable brand, the pigmentation of these shades is pretty much where you'd expect it to be. It's not overly pigmented, and you definitely have to build it up, but it's not like there isn't any payoff at all. These shadows are great to use if you just want a very simple eye look that is subtle and doesn't take a lot of work. Overall great for the price and will keep trying to get a lot of use out of it.
I'm a big fan of this highlighter! I have the shades Moonlight Pearls and Blush Gems, both of which are incredibly beautiful. The price is great and also won't break the bank if you end up not liking it. You have to scrape off the top layer because it is chalky and will not give up any pigment at first. Once you do that, it gives you a subtle highlight which you can build up if you wish. Highly recommend this product, it just takes a while to learn how to use!
