fresh.beautiful studio facial treatment review toronto microdermabrasion cold laser

As I dive deeper into the beauty world, skincare has become more and more interesting to me. New molecules, developing state of the art treatments, tailoring things to my own skin. As I pay more attention to the ingredients in my products, I also want to start taking better care of my skin as well. Treatments and facials should slowly start creeping their way into my skincare routine.

So when I was reached out to by the wonderful ladies at fresh.beautiful: the skin studio, I instantly took them up on their offer of trying out one of their services.

Quo Cushion Concealer Review Swatch #1 #2

A well concealed undereye is practically a must have nowadays in the beauty world. Both high end and drugstore brands are trying to give you the most pigmented, creaseproof product you can imagine.

Quo's new offering, the Cushion Concealer, is actually steering away from that—promising a more natural finish with sheer coverage. I've been testing out two of the three shades that are now available at Shoppers Drug Mart.

Maison Jacynthe Makeup Review Swatch Bordeaux Mate Romeo Barista

Through this blog I have had a chance to try out some great products from brands that we all know and love. Sometimes though, I get the chance to try out smaller brands that may have gone unnoticed if they didn't come to my doorstep. Maison Jacynthe is one of those brands.

This line of beauty products is mainly 100% natural and free of chemicals, petroleum by-products, preservatives and synthetic fragrance. It is also a cruelty free line. The line ranges from mascara to eyeshadow to lipstick. 

I was fortunate enough to receive 3 products from the line to try out and I have to say I am very happy with them all.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Master Palette by Mario Swatch Review Makeup Look

Two weeks ago I showed you the swatches of the Anastasia Master Palette by Mario and I've been using the palette since. Wanted to quickly share the two looks that I wore to work in the past week. 

I am so happy with this palette and love all the looks I've created with it. Both looks are appropriate for daytime but could be amped up for night by smoking out the crease.

CND Creative Play Nail Lacquer Polish Swatch Review

I love when brands want to support your creativity. Releasing interesting and unique colours and finishes is just the beginning when it comes to the CND Creative Play Nail Lacquers. They even included a Twister-like game for picking out your mani colours for each nail!

The Creative Play polishes are 7-free which means they do not contain toluene, camphor, formaldehyde, phthalates, formaldehyde resin, xylene, and methyl ethyl ketone. They are also formulated with micronized pigments to ensure that the colour is extra vibrant. This line of polishes comes in 80 different shades, which means that the mix and match mani possibilities are endless. The polishes retail for $8.50.

I have swatched 8 of the 80 shades for you. As per usual, 2 coats were used for all swatches unless otherwise noted.

So what does OPI do? Well they release 30 of their most popular shades from the regular line of polishes in the Infinite Shine collection!

I was fortunate enough to receive 10 of the shades to try out and I have swatched them all for you here. All swatches are 2 coats unless otherwise noted.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Master Palette by Mario Eyeshadow Swatches Review

Look what showed up on my doorstep today! Once I found out that the Anastasia Beverly Hills Master Palette by Mario was up on Sephora's website, I hurried on over to make the purchase. This is my first experience with Anastasia eyeshadows and I am so excited to start playing around with the palette.

Now this is a limited edition item so if you can get your hands on it, you better act fast! I haven't tried any of the shadows yet but wanted to provide you with swatches of the 12 shadows within the palette. I can give my thoughts on the palette in the coming weeks either on here or on my YouTube channel. Hope you enjoy this swatch-based post!

Dermalogica Charcoal Rescue Masque Review Dry Skin

The people that are consistent with their masking routine always amaze me. I barely can remember to do one once a week lately, even though I desperately want to treat my skin to some pampering. But once a mask makes me see a difference in my skin immediately, it urges me to up my masking game.

The Dermalogica Charcoal Rescue Masque ($60 CDN) just happens to be one of those masks.

Mani Monday: Emmys Red Carpet Inspired

On Sunday night, the Emmy Awards aired and the red carpet was full of some amazing fashion! As always, what we see the celebrities wear can serve as inspiration for nail art.

Jane Krakowski wore a stunning dress by Bibhu Mohapatra that featured some great details over the vibrant purple-blue shade. The details can be easily replicated by using a few different nail polishes and a dotting tool.
