Hey everyone! I just did my first video. Because I was too lazy to take proper photos. Hahaha
For those two don’t have three minutes of time to waste, the quick & dirty is: this is a crazy good mascara and you should buy it immediately!
Quick post while at the Skytrain. Picked up OCC Lip Tar in Queen at Sephora a couple weeks ago. It comes with a lip brush! Yay application just got a lot more convenient. Anyway the colour is a bright fuchsia which I like wearing with minimal war paint. It's a bit sticky on the lips at first but dries down nicely into a matte finish. Only needed two tiny drops to fill in my lips.

So a few months ago, I bought Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua foundation on my recommendation of my makeup artist friend who told me that it’s one of the best foundations for oily skin. My current YSL Le Teint Touche Eclat, I suspect, was making my break out which made me feel like I kept having to …
I’m probably too overdone for tonight’s potluck but I just felt like bright lipstick today. Of course I also had to wear my new pair of La Vie Parisienne turquoise earrings and matching teardrop necklace that my husband gave me for our seven year anniversary. (Anniversary of being together. And the one I forgot about. Oops!) (Just realized you can’t see the earrings in the photo. Oh well.)

It’s been a while since I last posted a review, eh? (Also: I’m so Canadian!) This one I’ve been waiting to review to see how much I actually like it once the initial excitement wears off.
I heard about YSL’s newest foundation on beauty blogs for a couple months before I decided to give it a go. I’ve been wearing this for a few months now and I really love it.
The main reason I’m really into this foundation is because the formula isn’t matte so I find it looks very natural on my face. The illuminating formula really helps add dimension and highlights to my face whereas most formula tend to flatten my skin’s texture. When selecting a foundation, my most important criteria is that it doesn’t look like I’m wearing any at all. This is one reason why I don’t bother with MAC foundations, mineral powder foundations like Bare Escentuals or anything with the word matte in the name. I never find the look is natural enough and veers too close to a masklike appearance.
Yet, despite it’s natural feel, the coverage is sheer yet buildable. WTF does that mean? To me that means that I can wear this foundation all over my face without feeling like I’m wearing a mask; you can definitely see my skin underneath. Yet, the coverage is buildable enough to even out my skintone and hide dark spots around my chin and my cheeks.
Also, love love love the pump that comes with! Why don’t more/all foundations come with pumps? Makes so much sense. It’s easy to control how much you dispense, you don’t have to worry about spills and it’s much more sanitary.
A couple things I’m not a fan of about this foundation:
PS: here’s my cool-ass Christmas shirt I can finally bust out:
It says “I’m not short. I’m elf sized.”
This year, it seems Sephora only had their 20% off sale for VIBs which luckily I was (normally, I’m not). Anyway, I hauled the following:
I didn’t get as much as I could have. I was considering some new perfume but I’m only halfway through my two bottles from last year. I also was thinking about a curling iron but voted against that too.
