The Smallest Sephora VIB Sale Haul

The Smallest Sephora VIB Sale Haul ft. Anastasia Beverly Hills, Tatcha, Lancome, Urban Decay || The Glam Surge
As most of you all know, Sephora just had their VIB Sale. Today (November 15th) is the last day for us Canadians, so if you've been wanting to pick something up, now is your chance! In the past, I tended to go a bit overboard during the sale (see this post and this post), but this time around, I was a bit more behaved.

Get Ready With Me | Autumn Makeup & Avoiding Flashback

Get Ready With Me | Autumn Makeup & Avoiding Flashback with an Illuminated Phone Case || The Glam Surge
Last weekend, the clocks turned back an hour. And to me, that's the indefinite sign that winter is coming. Although I appreciate that the brighter mornings, I can't stand that it gets dark so early in the evening. Then with the weather is dropping lower and lower each day; it's just a bad time for me all around. We've barely made a dent into Autumn, but I'm already wishing and dreaming for Summer. End of rant.

Introducing Mary Kay's Gel Semi-Shine Lipsticks + Swatches

Introducing Mary Kay's Gel Semi-Shine Lipsticks & Swatches || The Glam Surge
Just when I thought I was just a bit more closer to having an appropriately sized lipstick collection, Mary Kay had to be so generous and send me their whole new Gel Semi-Shine Lipstick Collection*. On the outside and just for a split second, I was rolling my eyes. However the lipstick junkie inside of me could not keep in the excitement and I was pretty much over the moon about them. I immediately took some photos and got to swatching!

One For The Sheet Mask Addicts

One For The Sheet Mask Addicts | FaceTory || The Glam Surge
Oh sheet masks. I feel like they're one of my favourite things when it comes to skincare, but unfortunately I don't get to wear them much...probably due to laziness. My love for sheet masks sparked only this year with Naruko's sheet masks stealing my heart. After that, I went on a rampage and now have quite a few in my stash waiting to be used.

Product Empties #6

Product Empties #6 - Beauty, Makeup, Skincare, Haircare || The Glam Surge
It's time for another product empties haul! I feel like these bits have been sitting in a box for the longest time and I'm so glad to finally be getting rid of them all. In fact, as soon as I took the photo above, I tossed them right in the trash. I'm pretty proud of myself for getting through so many bits this time around as a bunch of them were pretty big! Let's get into it..'cause it's gonna be a long one.

The Beauty Rundown | October 2017

The Beauty Rundown | October 2017 ft. Viviscal Gorgeous Growth Densifying Range || The Glam Surge
First off, Happy Halloween everyone! As I'm sure you've all been enjoying everyone's halloween blog posts today, how about we take a breather and talk about something not so spooky: haircare! So just a bit of a back story on my hair: before I got pregnant (over 4 years ago), my hair was long, luscious and healthy. After giving birth, my hair started to fall out, which is pretty common, and I went into a panic. A few years later I've tried different shampoos and conditioners to help me get back to where my hair was, but I had no luck. It wasn't until this year that I started taking it seriously and really exploring my hair care options besides shampoos and conditioners. Which brings us to the now.. Viviscal has been a brand on my radar for a while as I always saw ads of it in flyers. So when they got in contact with me to try their stuff, I jumped at it. Let's see if the wait was worth it, shall we?
