Natasha Denona Mini Star Palette - Swatches, Makeup Look and Review!

Oh look, another mini Natasha Denona - I have been such a fan of the other 2 mini palettes that I've tried, so I picked this one up right away too! 

Natasha Denona Mini Star Palette

Earlier in the year, I tried both the Natasha Denona Mini Sunset eyeshadow palette and the Mini Lila eyeshadow palette and I was really impressed with both of them! I thought they performed well and the shadows looked amazing on! (Both also made Monthly Favorites over this year).

Manicure Monday Recap - My Favorite Christmas Nail Art!

Happy Manicure Monday everyone! I hope you all had a great weekend - mine was crazy busy! So that explains why I don't have fresh nails for my Monday this week - trust me, it bothers me immensely; but, it will give me a chance to put a nail treatment on and let my nails rest for a couple of days! 

But, I still wanted to participate in our #CBBxManiMonday group - we are doing holiday nails all month! And, I actually love recap posts because it gives you so many fun ideas for nails! So, I thought I would recap my favorite Christmas (or holiday) nails today!  

Santa Nail Art 

Manicure Monday - Christmas Nail Art

Santa nails are so classic for Christmas! I love how cute these Santa nails turned out and they were easy! You really only need a nail dotting tool. You can check out my original post and a quick tutorial on these Santa's here

November 2018 - Empties and Month in Masks!

Time to look at my beauty garbage!

Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask ~ mini size shown here (full size is $24.00 CAN). A leave-on lip mask that soothes and moisturizes for smoother, more supple lips overnight.

When I got this at first, I wasn't sure what the hype was about - it just worked like a lip balm overnight. Wrong - I tried to use a normal lip balm overnight again like I used to, and when I woke up half way through the night, I noticed how dry my lips were. This lip mask actually hydrates the lips all night and they are soft in the morning - plus, it just feels like a soft lip balm formula when it applies! I think the full size has a spatula with it, and that is my only complaint with the mini - I hate dipping my finger in a pot. It made my favorites in June of this year! 

Repurchase: Yes

Five on Friday - December 7, 2018

Happy Friday everyone! I hope you all had a great week! Ours has been good - we are full in to Christmas mode! We had a huge family dinner last weekend with the extended family and I'm having my friend's gift exchange this weekend and am making the turkey for it! 


Ohhh... I always get so excited when new subscriptions ship to Canada, and I really wanted to sign up for the Maniology Mani x Me subscription; but, when they started a couple of month ago, it wasn't originally open to Canadians. So when they announced that they were shipping to Canada a couple of weeks ago I jumped at the chance to get it! 

It is $25.00 US per month plus shipping (I believe it is free shipping to the U.S. and $6.00 to Canada. Each month you will receive 2 exclusive plates, 2 polishes and an extra gift. There is also the option of an express Mani x Me for $18.00 US, and it was come with the 2 exclusive stamping plates and an extra gift.

Kocostar Sliced Cucumber Mask - Try-on and Review!

I'm a day late for Mask Wednesday; but, we are going ahead with a mask review anyways! 

Kocostar Sliced Cucumber Mask

I will say it 100 times here - I'm a total sucker for packaging on masks. The cuter it is, the more I need it on my face. So, when I came across these Kocostar masks in Anthropologie, I had to try them!
