Get Ready With Me For A Beauty Launch Event! | Hair and Makeup

I recently got invited to an event hosted by La Roche-Posay for the launch of their new Effaclar Duo [+] Acne Treatment, and I thought why not show you how I got ready for the evening! This was my first time filming a 'get ready with me' type of video, hopefully you enjoy watching! Both hair and makeup are very simple and easy to recreate and I hope this inspires you to try a new technique or maybe even a new product or two! :)

Visiting Kirkland's Trade Secrets/Glamour Secrets Beauty Store | Review

What I love so much about living in Montreal is that there are always new places to discover. While I know a good few beauty 'hot spots' in the downtown area and in the east end, whenever I get the chance to visit the West Island I always get super excited since they have many stores that I am unfamiliar with but that have so much to offer a beauty obsessed person like me. I was recently invited to visit a store in Kirkland called Trade Secrets, soon to be re-launched under the name Glamour Secrets (the first one in Quebec!) to see just what they have to offer. I had never heard of the chain before, but was informed that they have quite a few locations in Quebec, Ontario, New Brunswick, British Columbia and Alberta. Located in the Kirkland Centre right off Trans-Canada Highway 40, this particular store was very easy to find despite me not being familiar with the area.

Desert Essence Thoroughly Clean Face Wash - Original | Review

A couple of months ago I hauled a bunch of product from (more on that here) and thought it was about time I started reviewing some of the items I purchased as promised. I thought I would start with the Desert Essence Thoroughly Clean Face Wash - Original since I have been getting a lot of use out of it. I had heard about the brand previously, so when I saw that the website carried their products I decided to give some of them a try (I also got their concealer, but more on that in a future post)!

LOTS of Products I've Used Up! | Summer 2014 Empties

I haven't done one of these in quite some time, and considering how much place all of these products were taking up in my room, I finally got around to filming a video showing you everything that I've used up beauty-wise in the spring and summer months! This was my first time sharing my empties in video form, hopefully you find this somewhat interesting, so please let me know if that is the case and I'll definitely do more in the future! You've been warned though - it's a long one, so I'd suggest you get a snack or something ;)

ARTDECO Summer 2014 Miami Collection | Long-Lasting Eyeshadow Stick in Rich Girl and Glossy Lip Color in Glossy Orange

Nothing screams summer more than a beach getaway, and ARTDECO most definitely encaptured this exotic vibe in their new Miami Collection. Boasting a nice selection of stunningly vibrant colours, this limited edition collection has gotten all of my attention in the last couple of weeks. Kindly enough, I was sent the Long-Lasting Eyeshadow Stick in #08* and the Glossy Lip Color in #12* to try out and share my first impressions on. The collection also includes new limited edition eyeliners, waterproof mascaras, and ceramic nail lacquers shades that are summer and destination vacation approved.

Margarite Zinc Cream for Problem Skin | Effective Spot Treatment

I am trying to incorporate more natural beauty products into my daily routine, which led me to purchase a few products from since they offer them in abundance at very decent prices. When I came across the Margarite Zinc Cream For Problem Skin and read its many good reviews, into my cart it went. If you would like to see what other products I hauled from the website, you can read and watch more here.
