I am a huge book nerd who posts a lot about what I am reading on social media. I am a Library and Information Technician by day and a homebody by night. I love hanging out with my wonderful husband and the most amazing furbabies ever! I am finding a renewed interest in makeup so my shopping bags are full of new beauty products to try out. I am making the switch to cruelty-free brands! Can't wait to try more products and discover new brands!
Great affordable brush set!! Cruelty free too. I am new to makeup brushes and wanted to find a set to get started with. BH cosmetics sells gorgeous brush sets for great prices. The quality feels high end! I highly recommend!!
This product is my first purchase from the popular brand ColourPop and I am completely impressed! Highly pigmented and full of sparkly delight. They add a nice shine to my eye look. Super buttery and smooth - they go one like a dream if you apply with your fingers! I removed a star for how fragile these guys are. One in the kit came crushed (easy fix, I re-pressed it) but had this been a gift for someone it wouldn’t look too pretty. Otherwise I am so glad I snagged this product!
If you’re looking for a great lip repair from harsh winter months.. this is the one! This super hydrating lip balm is silky smooth, smells like fresh coconuts, and adds a healthy shine to your lips. I saw YouTube vloggers rave about this product. I worried it was going to be another overhyped product but it totally exceeded my expectations! This is now my go-to balm for super hydration. I am also obsessed with the smell. It doesn’t have a fake chemical coconut scent.. it smells legit! I highly recommend!
I am in the minority but I did not like this foundation at all! I had such high hopes.. Look at all of the positive reviews! Everyone was raving about how flawless this made their skin look and how great it was for oily skin. Ugh why didn’t this work for me?
My skin is combo but more on the oily side. I have breakouts on my chin/neck and minor scaring from other breakouts on face. I also have texture. This product covered nothing and emphasized everything!
I tried it with and without primers. I tried different primers. I tried it with a brush and with a beauty blender. It looked awful on my skin. It didn’t sink in, it sat on top and was difficult to blend/smooth out. It was so matte it looked like I dipped my face in powder. I looked cakey instantly. So disappointing.
If you have textured/imperfect skin I suggest getting a sample first and trying it out before wasting money on it.
Great spacious cages for my Chinchillas! I have 2 of them and they are really good quality. The doors open wide so they are easy to clean. The storage shelf at the bottom is great for extra supplies. Unfortunately my Chinchillas don’t care to pee in their toilet bowls all of the time so when they pee on the plastic or metal is gets discoloured (and the metal rusts) but that’s the fault of my chinnies.. not the product! Wish it were a little cheaper though 👎🏻
This is my absolute favourite high end shampoo!! The tea tree smells amazing, leaves a nice tingly feeling on my scalp, and makes my hair super clean. I am left with gorgeous soft hair after using this product. My hair shines and looks so healthy when I use this. I wish the price wasn't so high but it hasn't held me back yet. I will continue to buy this product!!
I love this brand. I was looking for a cruelty-free brand of shampoo and Live Clean popped up. They have a huge variety of shampoos and conditioners (as well as body wash, hand soap, and more.) My favourite is definitely the coconut one. It smells AMAZING! I also love that they are a Canadian product, plant-based, and eco-friendly!!
These are super amazing drugstore brushes. They are perfect for beginners. They were my first introduction into makeup brushes (aside from the ones that come in eyeshadow palettes) and they performed amazingly. The bristles are super soft and they blend makeup out well. The price is amazing! So affordable. I would definitely purchase these again!
I really wanted to like this product but it didn't work out well for me. I have straight dark brown hair and this barely showed up on it. The colour was so mute on my hair. The application was simple but it didn't dry nicely. It left the strands kind of crispy feeling. This product is probably better suited for lighter hair colours. Not sure how to avoid the crispy hair feeling though.. that was a major turn off. I would not buy this product. It's a neat idea but it had very little payoff on my hair.
This is a great treat for any dog/puppy when training or for a small snack. They are soft and chewy and full of flavour. My dog absolutely adores the pumpkin flavour! She practically begs for more. This is a great product at a decent price! I would definitely buy it again!
