Hot Or Not Monday

Today I will be sharing my review on the YSL Touche Eclat Blur Primer & Perfector. I have been an avid user of this for over 5 months now and have distinguished both pros and cons of this iconic product. To begin, if you follow any beauty account on Pinterest or Instagram, chances are you have seen this beautiful compact displayed next to some lipstick and a cup of coffee by blogger, after blogger. This baby doll pink with shiny gold trim packaging IS EVERYTHING, but I was curious to see if the product inside this luxurious looking compact gave me the same impression. You can use this one of two ways: either as a primer before makeup application, or over makeup to help reduce oiliness throughout the day. The compact contains 9.5 grams of product and retails for $55.00 Canadian on the Sephora website .

Jaclyn Hill Champagne Collection Face Palette: Review And Swatches

If you’re not familiar with the beautifully talented makeup goddess Jacyln Hill, where have you been hiding?! Seriously, this woman is the perfect example of how hard work pays off. Like many, I have watched her YouTube career sky rocket from when she first started filming YouTube videos in her kitchen, to where she is now. Her bubbly personality and genuine makeup tips, tricks and product reviews, is what attracts her “Hillsters” (as she calls us) to her channel linked here. BECCA Cosmetics has once again teamed up with Jaclyn to produce the Champagne Collection, and today I will be sharing my review on the Face Palette from this line.

Inside, the palette has a generous sized mirror which I love for on the go. It includes 3 blushes and 2 highlighters. The top row showcases 3 rich coloured blushes. From left to right we have “Rose Spritz”, “Amaretto” and “Pamplemousse”. …

Generation Beauty: Toronto 2016 Goodie Bag

This past weekend I attended Generation Beauty at the Metro Convention Centre in downtown Toronto. For those of you unfamiliar with Gen Beauty, it is a massive makeup convention hosted my ipsy that brings together top beauty brands and Youtube makeup gurus. There is no hiding my obsession for both makeup and the many beauty gurus I follow on social media. I had the honour of meeting the QUEEN of the tube, Mrs. Desi Perkins herself. She is such a genuine and talented woman and one of my biggest inspirations. I have watched her videos for many years now, and it is still extremely surreal that I had the privilege of meeting her (I fan girled pretty hard to say the least)! When you attend Generation Beauty, you receive not only two awesome goodie bags full of product, but also a free product at every booth. Below I share every goodie I received while attending Generation Beauty. I hope you enjoy and discover something new! Xo Britt
