May Shop My Stash - Flower Eyeliner Makeup Look

This month our Canadian Beauty Blogger's theme is Floral and the theme inspired my May Shop My Stash makeup post!

I love this base polish so much - I never reach for these kind of multichrome shifty polishes; but, this one looks amazing! I actually don't have many of these in my polish collection at all and now I want more!

Skincare Sunday - When Beauty and the Breast Bio-Cellulose Body Sheet Mask

Okay, if you thought I was getting crazy last week on last week's Skincare Sunday with a butt mask, I'm getting even crazier this week with a breast mask (don't worry I'm keeping it totally G rated here like the butt mask!) 

Skincare Sunday - When Beauty and the Breast Bio-Cellulose Body Sheet Mask

I've heard of When masks before (I think they used to be at Sephora); but, I hadn't actually tried any products from them before - so what better way to dive in to a brand than to dive in to a crazy body mask?!

April 2019 - Monthly Empties & Month in Masks

Here is a look at my beauty empties from April:

April 2019 - Monthly Empties
Some products may have been provided by PR - this post contains affiliate links

Smashbox Photo Finish Primer Oil ~ sample size shown (full size is $50.00 CAN). An ultra-light, fast-absorbing face oil that doubles as a face primer—imparting a glowing, radiant look with a dewy finish.

I never thought with combo skin and an oily t-zone that I would have really loved an oil primer; but, this works amazing for my skin in Fall, Winter and early Spring. It gives me a nice glow and really helped my foundation apply smoother! This made my Feb Favourites last year! I can't wear this in the Summer or when it's really warm; but, it looks good any other time! 
Repurchase: Yes!

Happy 5 Year Blogiversary! Celebrating With A Giveaway!

Today, May 12, marks the 5th Blogiversary of See The World in PINK! It's kind of crazy to think that 5 years ago I started with a little Manicure Monday post with Hearts, Glitter and Stripes! It's so weird that I basically started reviewing subscription boxes and doing my nails. 

It actually took me a couple of years to start doing full beauty content and really getting in to the makeup and skincare side of things! But, I'm so happy I've expanded in those areas and I love where See The World in PINK has gone over the past 5 years! I know I'm still a tiny blog in the beauty world; but, I'm still happy with everything that I've gotten to do!

Thank you so much for supporting See The World in PINK in any way!

April showers bring May flowers - could anyone pass that message along to the weather in Calgary?! We had snow this weekend, so instead of doing anything in the garden, we built a snowman in our backyard!

April 2019 What I Bought - Monthly Haul!

Time for a look at everything I picked up this month - I really love these Monthly Haul posts - they give me a way to share everything I pick up each month as I don't always post about everything I get!

Plus, this year I think these posts will hold me a little more accountable - I put myself on a  $100 a month budget, not because I need to; it's actually more to test myself and be more conscious about what I purchase. I also really want to make sure that I'm enjoying and using everything on my collection! (I certainly don't expect myself to be perfect each month with my budget; but, I really like knowing I'm thinking my purchases through!)



Everything was purchased by me

Shoppers Haul ~ $3.88 CAN. Oh ya, you read that right! I've mentioned here before that I'm rather obsessed with PC Optimum points - I've always shopped at Superstore and am a member to the PC Insiders for free grocery pick up, etc. But, there is something so fulfilling about getting all this stuff for free!

Urban Decay Game of Thrones Eyeshadow Palette and Sansa Stark Vice Lipstick

Woo hoo - the Urban Decay Game of Thrones collection comes out in stores today, May 2, 2019 at Sephora! It's already been released on Urban Decay's website (and has since totally sold out), and it is also available on the Sephora website! Yes, I was one of those people that stayed up late and purchased a couple of products from the Urban Decay site at launch time (I was reasonable and only grabbed a couple of things though!)

I'm a pretty big Game of Thrones fan - I've read all the books and seen all the shows, and since those books are really long, I can brag that I'm a true fan (I'm only kind of kidding to those of you who haven't read the books...). But really, I'm a big fan - my husband's birthday parties have been Game of Thrones themed, I've cooked a ton of food featured in the books and I'm pretty sure for the finale we are going to a costume party.

Shimmery Almay Spring Products - Swatched!

I've been pretty honest on here that I hadn't really tried a lot of  drug store brands prior to blogging - I really stuck in my Sephora bubble. And, blogging has really opened my eyes to drugstore makeup quality and given me the opportunity to try different brands than I normally would! 


Shimmery Almay Spring Products - Swatched!

That being said, I don't think I've ever tried a product from Almay and that made me excited to try this new Spring products out from the brand! Almay's makeup products are designed with sensitive skin in mind - they are hypoallergenic and fragrance free! It's always great to see affordable, accessible makeup products that won't irritate the skin, especially for those that are sensitive!

John Masters Organics Repair Line with Honey & Hibiscus

Spring is always the time for a "refresh" - who doesn't do a little Spring cleaning around their house or in their closet?! Well, why not a little refresh for your hair?! Time to spruce up your dry or damaged hair! 

We also can't forget that April is Earth Month and the more I learn about John Masters Organics, the more I know they are perfect to feature this month. The brand was founded on the philosophy that nature was the perfect source for clean beauty. Using the best organic ingredients and a holistic approach to haircare, John Masters pursued a healthier way to treat hair; thus, the brand was born.

Urban Decay Naked Reloaded Palette - Swatches, Look and Thoughts!

The original Urban Decay Naked palettes were the ultimate neutral palettes years ago - I know I really started my makeup collection with the Naked 2 and 3 palettes! I did recently declutter those palettes as they were getting a little old, so my collection was missing a neutral Urban Decay palette!

Rodial Collagen Boost Lip Lacquers

I also really want to make sure that I'm enjoying and using everything on my collection! 


On that note though, I went over budget knowingly this month; but, I'll talk about it after in that I feel like I was very thoughtful about the purchase, and that's really what I want this to be about! 


March 2019 Monthly Haul - What I Bought!
Everything was purchased by me

They are so gorgeous and I love the formula of 1 and 2 (I still don't have 3; but, I'm trying to remind myself that I don't need to be a completionist if I already have something similar or won't use it!) Anyways, I absolutely love the shades is the Petit Pro 5 Soleil palette - I picked it up the day it was released. Also, to get free shipping I added in one of these lovely Farmacy face masks! But, in reality I should have waited a couple of weeks for it to be released on Sephora to save in the exchange rate!

March 2019 Monthly Favorites!
Some products received as PR/free products - this post contains affiliate links

This month has such a perfect mix of products - a face mask, moisturizer, foundation, lipstick, and eyeshadow palette! I feel like some months I have such a wonky mix (like 3 palettes or 3 serums) and since I don't aim for any type of balance and just pick my favorites no matter what, I usually end up with a pretty random mix. So, it's so nice to see it look nice and balanced this month!

Manicure Monday - Eclectic Coral Stamped Floral Nails

Last week's nails were called Coral Floral nails and that's pretty much what I wanted to call this week's nails too, so I switched it up just a tiny bit so you know how creative and original I am around here...

We are sticking to the Coral theme this week for our #CBBxManiMonday round up - it is the Colour of the Year after all! I really wanted to up my stamping game, so I decided to stamp with shades of coral this week, and the little accents and polka dots give these nails a little eclectic look!

Five on Friday - March 22, 2019

Happy Friday everyone! It's been a really busy week, so it's just flown by - I'm so happy it's the weekend already!

Certainly the funniest part of my week was a girl's night out with a couple of my besties! We are all big Bachelor fans, so we went and saw Kaitlyn Bristowe's Spring Break Tour for her podcast Off The Vine!
