TOO FACED Palette Collection!

Hey Everyone!

So today I want to walk you through my Too Faced Eyeshadow Palette collection. I don't own them all but the ones I do I really love! All Too Faced shadows are pigmented and easy to blend, some are more powdery then others but nothing that can't be worked with. I recommend any of the ones I talk about below and if you have any others that are must haves for you let me know in the comments, I'd love to try them out! 

Let's start with the Country palette which has become one of my most used. The colours in this palette work beautifully together to create so many beautiful and fun eye looks. You can do everything with this palette from a complete everyday natural look to a fun pop of colour using the blue and purple shades. I also love the names of the shadows in this Palette, the larger three shades are named after amazing female country singers most famous songs and then you have the classic country names like Dolly, Y'all and of course the Bluebird.

The details on the front of this palette are so cute, from the rope in heart shapes to the pink colouring. 

The inside showing all the shades.

Swatches Right to Left: Cowboy Take Me Away (Matte), 
Famous in a Small Town (Shimmer), and
All American Girl (Metallic)

Swatches Top to Bottom: Paper Roses (Shimmer), 
Dolly (Glitter Flecks), and Y'all (Metallic)

Swatches Top to Bottom: Bluebird (Glitter Flecks), 
Nashville (Metallic), and Rhinestone (Shimmer)

Next up we have the A La Mode palette, which was a summer launch and the colours inside are summer favourites of mine for sure! This palette has a stunning Pink and Copper eyeshadow shade that are two of my must have eyeshadows of all time.

As always Too Faced delivered on the packaging. I love the blend of pink and orange, 
with the pop of blue. So Pretty! 

As you can see right off the top the inside of this palette really pops. So many bright colours to work with and so many beautiful colours stand out! 

Swatches Top to Bottom: St. Tropez (Glitter Flecks), 
Riviera (Satin), and La Croisette (Metallic)

Swatches Top to Bottom: Jardin (Shimmer),
Soleil (Shimmer), and Cannes (Shimmer).

Swatches Top to Bottom: De La Mer (Matte), 
Monaco (Satin), and Cote d'Azur (Metallic).

Onto the Boudoir Eyes palette, which is the perfect palette for anyone who likes sexy and smokey eyes! This palette has some gorgeous natural shades but throws in a amazing Taupe, a matte Grey and a beautiful almost Black with gold shimmer colour! 

The packaging literally looks like a tufted head board and I have always wanted one of those. 
This palettes packaging for me is the classiest of all the ones I own!

As you can see the Taupe colour, Lap Dance, is by far my favourite in this palette and has a nice sized dent in it. Did I also say that the names on all these colours are beyond amazing. Garter Belt, Lap Dance, Fuzzy Handcuffs........

Swatches Top to Bottom: Birthday Suit (Satin), 
Satin Sheets (Metallic), and In The Buff (Matte).

Swatches Top to Bottom: Sugar Walls (Satin), 
 Voulez-Vous (Satin), and Fuzzy Handcuffs (which is a very hard to see peachy Matte).

Swatches Top to Bottom: French Tickler (Glitter), 
Lap Dance (Metallic), and Garter Belt (Matte).

Onto the Natural Eyes palette, which is the most everyday wearable palette for the average person. I find the colours in this one to almost all be in the Brown toned family, don't get me wrong some of my most beautiful looks using this palette. I love the Gold and the Rose Gold, hands down my two favourite eyeshadows of all time. 

This packaging always makes me think Romance, from the soft colours to the roses! 

I love the layout of this palette, it has 4 matte shades and 5 shimmer/satin shades 
and all of them work really well together. 

Swatches Top to Bottom: Nudie (Matte),
Silk Teddy (Satin) and Heaven (Matte).

Swatches Top to Bottom: Push Up (Satin),
Honey Pot (Satin) and Cashmere Bunny (Matte).

Swatches Top to Bottom: Sexspresso (Matte)
Chocolate Martini (Glitter) and Erotica (Satin).

The Romantic Eye palette is the only original packaging Too Faced palette I have. It's not the tin, it's made of cardboard but it's held up over a long time. This one also has the most unique colours in it. 

Like I said, interesting colour mix right? The green gold, the deep purple, 
the matte grey. Separate they don't look like much, but create a look with 
them and you feel different!

Swatches Top to Bottom: Bouquet Toss (Matte),
Kiss the Bride (Matte) and Soulmates (Glitter).

Swatches Top to Bottom: Honeymoon (Glitter),
Un-Veil (Matte) and I Do (Matte).

Swatches Top to Bottom: Ever After (Satin), 
Honeymoon (Satin), and First Dance (Matte).

As you can see I have almost all the Too Faced palettes and I even have a few more then this but got them after I posted this. If you would like me to do full reviews and swatches of the other ones feel free to let me know in the comments. 

Too Faced palettes are some of the best quality eyeshadows you can get. They lay out great colour combinations and make it easy for the beginner in makeup but also give so many colour choices that even us makeup pros can have a lot of fun with their palettes. 

Final thoughts if you don't own at least one of these, you need to!

* NEW * BH Cosmetics Pop Art Lipsticks!

Hey Everyone!

  I recently saw Shaaanxo do a video on these and got super excited, I love a pigmented bright lip colour almost as much as I love my kids! I got 5 of the colours from this line and could not be happier with almost all of them. All of these go on really smooth and aren't patchy at all, the formula of these is done really well. 

The packaging on these lipsticks is HOT PINK and it's amazing, it has a glossy finish so it doesn't show finger prints. I don't think I know of any other lipsticks that have a line in all HOT PINK packaging. 

This is Zoink and I wanted this to be the perfect nude colour for me but unfortunately it made me look like I had concealer all over my lips. They swatch on my hand seemed so peachy and pretty but once it was on it totally washed me out. * SAD FACE *

Pop was one of my favourites of the ones I got, I'm really into these soft coral/oranges recently and headed into Fall I know I won't get much use out of them but I'm loving them. This one is a beautiful creamy almost matte finish, it looks amazing on my lips! 

Pow is a deeper and brighter version of Pop and it's up there on my favourites list. It's a beautiful orange with just a hint of red and surprisingly doesn't make my teeth look overly yellow. 

Bang is the kind of colour you wear when you want everyone to look at your lips, it's the perfect neon matte. Reminds me a lot of Candy Yum Yum but not matte, it has a slight shine to it but it's not overly glossy. 

Last but defiantly not least is Slam which is a beautiful pinky red and I am in love with it. This is almost always my go to colour for life but I really love the balance of pink and red in this one.

ImPress VoxBox from Influenster!

Hey Everyone!

  So I got a VoxBox to share with you, this is the second time I've tried the Impress nails because they came in a previous VoxBox.

I got two different styles and I thought both were fun and surprisingly wearable! 

I have to say I love these nails! When I want my nails to look done but not have to spend hours doing them I always reach for a set of these. They really do last and they are so easy to apply! 

Thank you @Influenster for sending me these for review!

Here's a link to the video I made on these!

4 or More TAG!

Hey Everyone!

  So here is my 4 or more TAG!

 When I was pulling the products for this video I had a really hard time, as most of you know my makeup collection is pretty large. It truly would have been a lot easier to pull things I have 4 or less of. And of course this got my thinking, how much is too much?

 I do makeup for a job, it's not a hobby or just YouTube for me. I am a working makeup artist so I find that I justify the amount of stuff I own using that excuse. Truth is I haven't used some of my makeup for a really long time, coming up on a year now, so maybe it isn't about what you do but how much you use. I rarely wear makeup myself, I have super sensitive skin and no time!

I have thought and even tried to go thru and pull what I don't use as much but at the end of the day no matter how big of a dent I make I always get it filled right back up! Makeup is a never ending obsession, there will always be a new product, a new colour, or special packaging. My words of wisdom for all yo out there reading this, buy what you will use, don't buy something that you know you will never touch because the packaging is pretty. When you buy something and it doesn't work for you return it (yes you can do that!), don't just let it sit and grow, trust me before you know it the collection will over take you!

Anyways hope you enjoy this video!

Thanks for watching!

Where have I been!

I know I know!

 I'm an awful Blogger and I'm truly sorry, I don't have a laptop anymore so so whatever reason when I'm sitting at my desk I do a lot of editing but I always forget to get on here and BLOG for you. So my goal is now to host at least 4 BLOG's a month and also try to link to all my YouTube videos thru here.

So the last two months have been super busy, with what you ask? Well planning for Brilliant! has started again, for anyone who doesn't know Brilliant! is a charity fashion show for St. Paul's hospital in Vancouver, I've been a part from year one and now at year 3 I am in change of all things makeup. I have over 60 makeup artists and around 100 models and it can be a very hectic time. The show isn't until September but we start planning in March!

The boys are both doing really well, Logan has his 11th Birthday coming up, I really can't believe he's almost 11, where idd the time go? Paxton is going to be 3 this year, WOW, I have a hard time even typing that. He is my baby after all and he's not a baby anymore.

Both the boys took skating lessons so far this year, Logan did amazing and Paxton had no desire to skate until we put a hockey stick in his hands, then you couldn't get him off the ice! 

He's also very artistic and thinks outside the box, I guess the paper wasn't exciting enough so his body became his canvas. He was covered by the time I finally stopped him!

And he got his first haircut, this was a very sad day for MOM!

Even with an 8 year age gap there are the best of friends, these two are my life blessings, and I'm so thankful!

We took a trip to Alberta to see their dad and my parents who are now living there. It's a very long drive and both my kids were so sleepy! This is them sleeping on the drive home, so cute!

Well there's an update and some of the awesome kid-cuteness! Hope you in enjoyed it and I'll be sure to talk to you guys a lot more!

TTT (Thursday Treasure or Trash) - L'Oreal Lip Gloss

Hey Everyone!

 Here is a NEW Thursday Treasure or Trash (TTT) for you! I'm really enjoying these new lip products from L'Oreal, their name is so long and confusing thats one thing I don't like. I love that for the most part I can throw any of these into my purse and go. They give a very nice hydrating, glossy, full pigmented lip colour.

 Here are all the colours I own, the shade range on this line is amazing and there truly is something for everyone!

I really love the sleek gold packaging, it reminds me of YSL or something very expensive. The only downside is it shows finger tips like you wouldn't believe!

Here you have all the "arm" swatches (thanks Logan (My Son) for letting me use your arm. The family that blogs together, stays together.

As you can see most of these colours have some real pigment in them and they are all super glossy. I'm a fan!

Want to know more info or see all the swatches on my lips? Watch the video!

Clinique Cheek POP Blushes!

Hey Everyone,

  So I got these blushes back in February and I have been using them fairly regularly from then until now and I'm still loving them! These are a very smooth and creamy formula and then glide on and blend on like butter, plus I LOVE their packing it's beyond cute!

Their are four colours in total but I only picked up two of them. The first colour I got was 03 Berry Pop and I knew I wanted this one right away. It's a beautiful medium toned pink colour and it gives your cheeks that perfect flush.

Hand Swatch look at the pigment on this blush!

The other colour I picked up was 02 Peach Pop and like Berry Pop this is also a very bright tone. This one is more of a peachy coral and have a beautiful sparkle to it.


Hand swatch you can see just how pretty this coral colour is!

I've been telling myself for weeks to go out and grab the other two colours and just haven't gotten around to doing it yet but I still plan to. I think these are defiantly worth the slightly higher price tag at $24.00 Canadian each.

Thanks for reading!
