My name is Kelsey, better known as 'kaybrookie' on Instagram! I'm a local makeup artist and social media influencer based out of Calgary, AB, Canada, and am proud to be one of the most followed people in the city of over 1 million people.
I have a passion for all things beauty related and believe that I am a huge advocate for products that I love. I believe in the power of social media and know that the power of recommendations and word of mouth go a long way. Trying and reviewing products to my immediate circle, my social media presence, and my clients is a huge hobby of mine! I like to stay on top of the latest trends and am always interested in trying the latest and greatest!
Not the worst, not the best. It has a pretty good taste, but it’s definitely not as smooth as some other brands. I like it mixed for sure and it’s a little strong tasting on its own. I like the bottle though!
Fine enough gin. I have only ever purchased this if I’m on a budget as I’m not obsessed with the flavour. It has a really heavy fake pine taste to me that’s a bit off putting. I’ve really only ever used it for mixing since I don’t love the taste on its own...
Awesome gin that falls mid-priced. It’s relatively smooth and has an authentic gin flavour. I like it mixed in soda with lemon and lime. The bottle is beautiful also, so it doubles as great decor on my bar cart!
One of my top 3 fave mascaras of all time. It separates lashes beautifully and leave them super black and flake free. It is a heavy duty formula - probably the closest you can get to waterproof with out actually being waterproof. Highly recommend for summer since it can handle the heat!
One of the most universal contours on the market. It has the perfect undertone that works on most skin tones. A little goes a long way and the product is a decent size for the price. This will forever be a go-to in my kit!
One of my staples since high school. This is the OG pore filling primer in my opinion. It is one of the only formulas that truly smooths and diminishes the look of pores for the day. I like to apply it using a patting motion do get the best effect!
The best formula for fluffy and full lashes! The bristles really separate every lash to create a falsie effect. I find a tube goes a long way because the product is so lightly applied on the lashes. I also love the waterproof version for summer!
Review for: Kat Von D #70 Pomade Brow Brush more...
Oh baby! This brush is truly a must have for any working makeup artist and makeup lover alike! The bristles are so well packed that it picks up the perfect amount of product every time and distributes it perfectly on the brow. I’m so happy to have received this, and best believe if there’s a time that comes that the brush wears out, I’ll repurchase in a heartbeat!!
I really liked this product! Easy to use. The applicator reminds be a bit of a “bingo stamper”. I had to apply a fair bit for it to show up on my platinum hair. It just seems super subtle, but I’m sure it’s because I started with a light base. My hair didn’t feel overly crunchy or uncomfortable with the colour on. It washed out very easily which was a huge bonus. I would definitely try this in other colours! It’s really fun for a night out!
