CoverGirl - TruBlend Liquid Foundation Review

Now, I'm not one to wear much foundation. Main reason being, I sleep in so majority of the time I wake up too late to bother. Or simply because I rub my eyes and touch my face too much (I know, really bad habits, I can't help it!).

But every once in a while, there are a few new releases that capture my attention and I pick it up to try. At this moment, including this bottle I have three foundations in my collection. I mean, I'll never use them up before their expiration dates, but at least I have them!

For this particular foundation, I was chosen by BzzAgent to participate in their campaign for CoverGirl. If you're curious what BzzAgent is, the short answer from their website:
Try products and services, then share your honest opinions about them with people you know. 
They gave us a few different foundations to choose from:

- Tru Blend Liquid Foundation
- Clean Oil Control
- Simply Ageless Foundation
- Outlast Stay Luminous Foundation
- Outlast Stay Fabulous

A few of the lines did not have my shade, so I was a little limited. In the end, I went with Warm Beigh L-7 from their TruBlend Foundation line.

May Empties and De-clutter 2016 + Mini reviews

Hey everyone!

Have you been enjoying the weather so far? It's been amazing out lately! The one thing I miss having living in Toronto is a balcony. I would love to just lay out and tan a bit. Oh and not having to smell sewage everywhere I walk. In my hometown, I just smell cow manure. Which some people can argue is worse, but it's usually only one time out of the year the town smells like it. Mainly April when they fertilize the fields. I choose manure one time out of the year over sewage all year round! Would you agree?

I'm actually quite proud of myself this month. I like to hoard things so I usually have random junk lying around. This also means I tend to buy more products than I can use. I was cleaning out my drawer the other day and found so many random products I forgot about. It's like shopping and everything is free!

I've also written a short summary at the end of the post as well. 

After some products failed to impress me and some just causing my skin to break out, I managed to get rid of quite a number of products. I definitely de-cluttered more than I emptied.

PinkSeoul Unboxing! May/June + April Mask KBeauty Subscription Box!

Hey everyone!

I know it's out of the ordinary for me to write a post one week after my previous one; if you can tell, I've mainly been posting bi-weekly. I find this gives me ample time in-between posts to figure out what I want to write and it won't make me feel as stressed to push out content weekly.

Since I received my PinkSeoul box this week, I wanted to share them with you before they ran out!

The post office has been good to me this week. Almost all the packages I've been expecting I received!

This month, there's more of a mix of things I'll definitely use and a few I won't really touch.

Also, since PinkSeoul was newly launched in March, they held a giveaway for those who wrote reviews for their subscription box. I partook in it and I was lucky enough to win the April Mask Box! I have an unboxing of that in this post as well.

Let's take a closer look at all the products I received this box!

Wishtrend Haul Unboxing! Benton and COSRX - Snail Bee & BHA Blackhead Power

Hey everyone!

Finally, it's getting warmer outside! So happy to not have to drag around my thick winter jacket. Though I realized I don't really have an appropriate jacket for Spring. Actually, I don't really have a light wind breaker for the Summer evenings either. Hmm me thinks I should shop less for beauty and more for... clothes. Maybe. Or buy both.

Anyway, I ordered from Wishtrend end of April, and I've finally received my package! Since this was an April order (I ordered... quite a lot of things last month) my no spending in May I set for myself, is still going strong! I mean, granted I broke it already, but only with really small purchases. Still counts!

I've been seeing COSRX all over instagram along with Benton Snail products (most of my purchases as of late have been directly influenced by the AB community there). I was originally going to purchase all COSRX, but their snail products were sold out on Wishtrend. By chance while exploring the site (a serendipity if you will, haha see what I did there?!) I found their Snail Bee Gift Box for sale.

All the products I purchased were on sale as well, so I wanted to snatch them up before they sold out!

Here's a further look of all the products I ordered:

Berrisom - My Lip Tint Pack: Virgin Red Review

Hey everyone!

I'm back with a new post. I've mentioned before how I love trying new beauty/makeup products, especially Korean brand related. The product I'll be reviewing today was from the PinkSeoul KBeauty Box I posted about last month. 

This was the first product I had tried from the subscription box the day I received it. The tattoo lip tint seems to be the latest kbeauty craze. I constantly see the product all over instagram. 

Description of the product taken from Memebox:
Berrisom's Oops my lip tint pack is one of the hippest lip makeup in Korea [...] It's a peel-off type of pack that leaves vibrant colour that lasts for over 12 hours without smearing or fading. 
The colour I received was Virgin Red which is quite bright. I've seen other brand lip tints and the tint once peeled off is quite subtle, but testing this on my hand, I knew Berrisom lip tint would not be the same. The colour packs a punch. Definitely a very vibrant red.

We'll see how this one faired!
