Five on Friday - October 18, 2019

Happy Friday everyone! I hope you all have had a great week - I love a short work week, so it was nice to have a long weekend and only a 4 day work week! 


The perfumes were sent as PR samples, everything else was purchased by me

If you haven't seen yet, I have a giveaway going on right now for my Canadian readers! Thanks to Farley Co. and So Fragrance - we are giving away a set of 4 new perfume mists! You can see the original post here - for all the details on how to enter! Good luck everyone!

Besame Sleeping Beauty Collection ~ Try-on and Review

I've made it pretty clear that I love me a Disney beauty collection - it pretty much sucks me in every time; but, I was truly excited when Besame announced that in honour of the 60th Anniversary of Sleeping Beauty, they were releasing a collection! Besame puts in an extraordinary effort in to their collections, so I knew this was going to be exceptional! 

Besame Sleeping Beauty Collection
All products were purchased by me

This collection includes an eyeshadow palette, three lipsticks, a blush palette, a translucent powder, a cream rouge and a vanity mirror. As much as I wanted to go crazy and try everything, I only picked up the Briar Rose Blush Palette, Auroras Translucent Powder, and Sleeping Beauty Pink lipstick.

New Miss So...? Fragrances and a Giveaway!

I tend not to talk about scents too much here on the blog, not because I don't use or like them; but, because I'm actually pretty bad at describing scents! 

But, I wanted to share some new Miss So...? Perfume Mists and Eau Fraiche scents with you, because they smell great - I love a mist for daily wear as it's a bit lighter than a full perfume - and because Farley Co. was kind enough to offer a giveaway for my Canadian readers (make sure to check the bottom of the post!)

I actually really like that Miss So...? released these scents as both a perfume mist and an Eau Fraiche. An Eau Fraiche is similar to a perfume, but it contains a little less of the fragrance, making it a light lighter than a perfume. But, the scent is still great on me and again, I prefer a little lighter scent overall (plus, it helps keeps this line affordable and these are all under $15 at Walmart!)

Manicure Monday - Hocus Pocus Maniology September Mani x Me Nails!

I love a unique colour combination for any season or holiday, but when I saw the pink and glittery black polish in the September 2019 Maniology Mani x Me Hocus Pocus subscription, I knew I needed that colour combo for my Halloween nails this year!

I purchased the subscriptions these polishes were in

This holographic black polish is so stunning and I love the pop of witchy and fun Halloweeny stamp designs! How fun are these spooky cats and Ouija board accents?! I love them - I'm not opposed to ouija boards or anything else occultish!

September 2019 - Monthly Empties

Time to dig in to my beauty garbage:

September 2019 - Monthly Empties
Some products were received as PR samples - this post contains affiliate links

Smashbox Photo Finish Primerizer ~ sample shown (full size is $20.00 - $55.00 CAN). A face primer and moisturizer in one that delivers 24-hour hydration and powerful primer benefits in the lightest possible texture.

I've heard rave reviews about primerizer and I thought it was okay - I actually thought it was a little thin and I'm not sure that it really let the makeup adhere better or last longer, so it didn't do what i expected. It was moisturizing and felt nice on my face, but that's not enough for me to like a primer! 
Repurchase: Not likely
