We all have our favs, Right?

This is MACs Wedge and it is my HOLY GRAIL EYESHADOW CREASE SHADE and “yes” I have a backup waiting.


MAC WEDGE, my holy grail eyeshadow…

Before Christmas 2017, it mysteriously went missing.  I have this lil area where I keep all my small packaged items, like my single MAC shades, and when I went to use it, it wasn’t in its usual place.



MAC WEDGE, my holy grail crease shade… can’t live without it.. lol

On my make up vanity where I sit and get ready every morning, I have my brushes and smaller products like my primer, MAC Paint Pots, etc , and I went to grab my MAC Wedge shade and OMG, ITS GONE!  Of course, I thought maybe I didn’t put it away properly or something, and began snooping around for it, but dang if I could find it.

I didn’t think too much of it at that moment, but after a few weeks I started missing it and began looking for it again.  Nothing, couldn’t find it.  So then I decided, oh well I just crack open my back up.  I opened in my drawer where I house all my backup products and was about to open my backup pan and THERE IT WAS, MY MAC WEDGE THAT IVE BEEN LOOSING.


MAC WEDGE, tAken with the flash ON.

Why it was there, I don’t know 🤷‍♀️The case of the missing eyeshadow has been solved and everything is OK, I mean, really? All that fuss over an eyeshadow… sheesh!  Drama, drama, drama… bye for now

What was I thinking?


I’m not sure I knew what I was getting myself into when I went onto the Colourpop website and start snooping around.  I mean, where is all my self-control when it comes to just looking around a colorful website?  I knew I was in trouble when I clicked on this cute little quad called “Rebound”.  What sold me was the matte colors, gorgeous right?


  I received my Colourpop order in the mail a couple of weeks ago and I have been preoccupied with everyday life to even give them a second thought or even give them a swatch.  I have not worn them yet, I like the shades and I like the weird texture.  Not used to my eyeshadows having this spongy type feel to them but “meehh”, I might as well check them out.


Well I just wanted to come on my blog and post my pretties and see what you all think of them.  I will definitely give these darlings a whirl tomorrow!  Anyone out there enjoying them or really dislike them.. let me know in the comment section.  To each their own.


Until next time, think positive and positive will always be around!

Makeup Remover Wipes

My Pet Peeve!

My Favorite Makeup Remover Wipes

My Favorite Makeup Remover Wipes

Drugstores that do not have any type of makeup remover wipes available to those of us that love to swatch cosmetic products.  Grrrrr.  Do they not realize that there are people, like me, who love swatching products but really don’t want to walk around with a rainbow of color on their hand for the remainder of their haul?  It’s annoying when I get to my local Value Drug Mart, start swatching and realize that I forgot my small package of  Neutrogena Removing Cleansing Wipes at home.  Then I start to look around, knowing darn well that I wont find any, BUT I still look around hoping that MAYBE, JUST MAYBE there is a box of something available, but nope. This Value Drug Mart is not the only drugstore that I’ve visited and have had to walk out with swatches on my hand.  I really don’t understand why makeup remover wipes are not available to customers who swatch products.  Knowing me, I would be interested in seeing how different makeup removers preformed, could be a potential purchase.  Anyway, that’s my rant.  Not having makeup remover wipes available when I go to, mainly drugstores to swatch. Thank heavens this is not an issue when I visit my Sephora, MAC or Shopper’s Drug Mart.  They are more than prepared for their swatching cosmetic loving customers.

Here are my thoughts……

Man oh Man! Has this palette ever created a buzz.

I enjoy browsing the different cosmetic sites, watching the Beauty Guru’s videos on You Tube, and visiting Beauty Blogs that are out there on the World Wide Web.  It’s amazing how I can connect to all this information with just a tap of my finger.  Last night I watched another You Tube video, where the lady was showing her latest haul and of course the first item she showed was the Lorac Mega Pro Palette.  She boosted about how amazing it is, how happy she was to finally have it and went on into detail about the description of each shadow.   I then went on to another video, and once again, another guru was talking about how lucky she was to have it BUT did not go into details as she stated that “since many were not able to purchase this palette, that she did not want to give a review on it”.  I appreciated this.  I am happy for all the people who were lucky enough to have received the Lorac Mega Palette free, from the company (or where every they rec’d it from) for them to review AND for the many who were able to purchase it online, I’m happy for them.  They have something that I and many others do not have.  I could go and purchase one off Ebay, but that’s not happening.  So, in my opinion, “i’m ok” with not being able to have this palette.  I am very, very, very happy with the many palettes that I have collected over the years and I know I have more than I could ever use.

I was so happy using my Charlotte Tilbury Luxury Palette and Blushes, that I missed all the hype and releasing of the Lorac Palette.  That by the time I caught on that Lorac had this MEGA palette out, it was all sold out.  So to soothe my makeup addiction, I just walk over to my vanity and pick up my SUGARPILL Palette or my CHARLOTTE TILBURY palette or the many, many, many other palettes that I do have and the Lorac Palette is forgotten.  🙂


I Love my Charlotte Tilbure Luxury Palette, Amazing

Ombre Nudes Eye Palette

IMG_3349The  shades that are in this amazing palette are definitely top notch and I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE using this palette.  These shadows have been infused with Green Coffee Oil and also have a built in primer, which definitely helps to extend the wear through out the day and on into the evening.


Smooth, creamy and absolutely devine is how I would describe the Becca Ombre Nude Eye Palette.  It wears perfectly all day with no dulling or smudging.  I love reaching for it, as soft nudes and matte shadows are my absolute fav.   The Tarte beMattnificent palette is in the same range for me 🙂


I can create so many great looks for a day at the office and then deepen the eye shadow for a more dramatic night time, out on the town look.    The colors are very pigmented and range from a soft light creamy color to a rich chocolate brown.   This palette can be applied wet or dry, however, I have only used them dry.  As for me, I have not really caught on to using this or any eye shadows wet, expect for the Milani’s Runway Eyes #05 Girls Luv Pink.

I purchased online through Sephora and look forward to adding more Becca cosmetics to my collection. I highly recommend this lovely palette to those who enjoy matte shades and want a great go to option.  These are my thoughts on the Becca Ombre Nude Eye Palette.  Until next time, stay gorgeous!



I started collecting the TIGI line about a year ago.  At first I bought a Blush in Awaken and my first impression was WOW, Gorgeous, I must get more.  The Magic Fingers Design Team Salon in St. Paul, AB is where I purchase the TIGI product line and each time the selection that they have grows.  Now, they have a display of all the products that are available.  Lipsticks, Blushes, Eyeshadow, Eyeliners, and much more  Great product.  Eyeshadows are my favorite, very pigmented, gorgeous colors, stay on all day and are very unique.  I highly recommend adding the TIGI line to your collection.  Good Job TIGI.

I feel like it’s been months and months since I posted a piece here on my blog. It’s been a weird couple of weeks here at home and at work. Seems like I’ve missed so much but yet something’s are the same. On my Facebook account people have been annoyed with the weather, planning or are on a vacation, some continue to post about their everyday tasks and some have fallen off the radar. Falling off the radar is the category that I would place myself. I feel like I didn’t miss too too much.

The last time I posted was when I commented about my Sephora Spring Social for their VIB customers, which I must say was very nice, I enjoyed myself. Since then, I seem to be in a Bronzer and lip product phase. While I was at SDM I picked up some more Rimmel and Essence products and I must admit that I am enjoying these two drugstore product lines. The Rimmel Bronzer, matte finish, in Sun Queen gives me a nice everyday spring sculpted cheek and have been reaching for it over my Lancomb Smooth Loose Powder. In my opinion the LANCOMB Bronzer, slight sheen finish, is my #1 go to Bronzer then the Rimmel in Sun Queen is a very close second, with my TIGI and PHYSICIANS FORMULA bronzers both coming in third. They are all fabulous in my opinion and love each of the different finishes that they give me depending on the look I am going for that day.

Like bronzer’s, I have also found myself swatching lipsticks and lipglosses. I have purchased a number of both from BUXOM and TARTE. From the BUXOM line I purchased the Full On Lip Cream in Creamsicle, the Full Bodied Lipgloss in Boo-Ya, the Lip Tarnish in Pink, the Lipstick in Swinger, and the full On Lip Polish in Trixie. In the TARTE line I purchased the dual pack Cheek Stain and Lip Surgence and not sure if the colour is called ENERGY or not, however it is a very lite pink colour. I’ve been wear all of these lip products alone or in combination with each other and I just love the finish I get from these products. Again, another must have, stay gorgeous until next time. 🙂
