My name's Nicole - a Toronto-based makeup addict. Welcome to my corner of the web where I share my love & experiences with all kinds of beauty, makeup & skincare products. Head on over to my About Page to learn more about me.



The Beauty Rundown | July 2016

Anastasia Beverly Hills Concealer
First Impression | Contrary to what I thought at first, this concealer is really smooth. I feel like I don't really need to use that much product to get good coverage. It's highly pigmented, even with the slightest swatch.
Review | I like to use this product to clean under my brows and I've really been loving it! It's really smooth and it's not thick like I thought it was going to be. The concealer doesn't dry so fast so it's easy to blend out. If I overdo my brows, I like to use this and the coverage it gives me covers up any mistakes I may have done. A little definitely goes a long way.

Makeup For Ever Ultra HD Concealer
First Impression | This has really sleek packaging, perfect for travelling. It's not too thick, so it should be great for under the eyes.
Review | Just as I thought, this concealer is really good for under the eyes since it's not too thick. It doesn't give me that heavy/cakey feeling that thicker concealers do. It's actually really light and it doesn't crease on me at all when I set it with my Laura Mercier Translucent Setting Powder. I don't really have dark under eyes, so I couldn't say if this conceals that. Though I did buy a lighter shade to brighten my under eyes and it works great.

The Body Shop Drops of Light Serum
First Impression | This has a really perfume-y smell. I don't really know how to describe the scent but the good thing is that the smell doesn't linger. So it doesn't really bother me at all. It has a dropper which makes it really easy to use.
Review | I really love this stuff! I use it every day and I notice that my skin looks brighter, glowy, and much more healthier. I actually like to pile this stuff on and it's nice because my skin soaks it right up. Glad I found something new that my skin likes and agrees with. Will continue to use!

For the month of August I'll be trying these products:
