Nyx Lip Lingerie Review

Casey B >> 11/29/2016 >>
Matte, long lasting lips are everything right now but trying to find one that won't over-dry or stain can be difficult. 

I have been loving my TooFaced Melted Matte Liquid Lipstick - but not so much the price. It isn't the most budget friendly option out there. In addition to that, I don't have a Sephora near me. So while re-ordering current faves is an option, the opportunity to swatch isn't available. 

Budget friendly, accessible and definitely comparable to the TooFaced Melted Matte formula. 

While the formula goes on a little slick (almost like a gloss) it dries within 10-15 seconds to a gorgeous matte finish. 

I find it to be a buildable coverage. The thicker the application, the more pigmented. I tend to do 2 coats, and wow do they last! Aside from eating and drinking, re-application is absolutely not necessary. 

The feel on the lips is actually pretty impressive. As mentioned, it can be difficult to find a matte lipstick that doesn't feel drying or cake on. Nyx Lip Lingerie is almost undetectable, and i've caught myself forgetting it's on. 

This is an excellent budget friendly dupe for TooFace Melted Matte Liquid Lipstick. The cost for the Lip Lingerie is $7.00-$9.00 whereas the TooFaced one rings it at $25.00-$29.00. I picked mine up at Shoppers Drug Mart (Canada) for $8.99 on sale. 

Definitely a must try!

Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion

Casey B >> 9/26/2016 >>
One of my all time favouirte and ultimate must-have products is a really good primer. My go to primer is the Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion

As one of Urban Decays top selling items, it lives up to the hype. It's main purpose is to increase the  longevity of your eyeshadow while preventing any creasing. It is very easy to work with and has a super creamy and smooth formula that disappears when blended. Urban Decay also has three other Eyeshadow Primers that are tinted with their shadows.

Charlotte Lacroix Skin Care - Review

Casey B >> 9/04/2016 >>
Well Hello! 

Though I hate to admit it and I might not feel like I am getting older, my skin is. And preventative measures are so important. It's much easier to toss a bit of skin care into your regime now, than it is to hide and get rid of wrinkles later on.

Recently I changed jobs which means my AM get ready routine has changed. I am all about feeling fresh and confident when I go in to work. But there are those mornings that I just don't want to get out of bed. I have perfected my daily get ready routine so that I am able to get ready in roughly seven and a half minutes.

BADgal Lash by Benefit

Casey B >> 4/13/2016 >>

I went on a little bit of a splurge last week and I ended up grabbing one of my all time favourite mascaras. Frankly, I save tis one for when I really feel like treating myself as I d not like to spend oodles of money on mascara (i’d rather shell out the cash on a good moisturizer or primer) but I was feeling pretty down on myself recently and I decided, “Why not?!”

BAD gal Lash by Benefit has been one of my favourites since I got a deluxe size sample from Sephora one of my first ever trips there. It is very comparable to the Voluminous by L’oreal (my budget friendly dupe) which is the one I like to keep on hand.

A while back I was at Shoppers. I needed a refill of my go to foundation and realized it was much more expensive at this store than my usual shopping spot, so I started to check out the shelves. 🙏🙏🙏

Everyday Face Routine

Casey B >> 2/10/2016 >>
So here it is! My updated face routine. I like to update these videos every once in awhile because often times it'll change depending on the time of year, and if I pick up some new products I like to try to incorporate them.

These are not always step that I take every single day to do my face. Sometimes I will skip concealer, sometimes I'll just use bronzer, it all depends on the amount of time I have to get ready and what I'm getting ready for. This video has all the steps that I take to do a complete face from primer to setting powder to highlight.
