Annabelle Cosmetics and the Holidays

Christmas came early for me this year.

I got a goodie bag from Annabelle Cosmetics.

Elle Canada even featured these product in a makeup tutorial for a holiday look.

See here to Get the Look.

I can't wait to create my own holiday ready looks with these products.

In most cases the old adage of you get what you pay for is quite true. However, in this particular case, I feel like the small price actually gives you big value.

Sephora VIB Makeup Haul

Girls would totally buy 2 things for $1 that they don't need just because it's on sale from $2.

But this sale is one legitimate items that girls do need.

MAKEUP!

I started dabbling in the magic of makeup about 1 year ago and I never stopped. From obsession over YouTube tutorials to swapping tips and tricks with friends to browsing Sephora weekly I do it all.

When I was presented with the silver VIB card, they made me a loyal costumer for life. On until Monday is their 20% off event exclusively for VIB members.

I went and took full advantage.

I got the Urban Decay Vice2 Palette, Bite Beauty the Lip Set, Urban Decay Black Market Pencil Set, Kat Von D Spellbinding Lipstick Set and redeemed the new 500pt perk from Urban Decay.

I am very much a lips and eyes girl, as you can see by my purchases.

My favourite is the Vice 2 palette.

Ever since I got the first Vice Palette I am hooked.

I am such a color girl and in the Vice2 Palette the iridescent purple coined "betrayal" is my absolute favourite. I will slowing swatch the colors out in future posts, stay tuned.

ORIZEE Monitoring Update

Happy Labour Day darlings. I posted about this local skin care brand, Orizée skin care products, a few weeks ago. I have been using the YUZU AND SHISO HYDRATING CREAM as a day time moisturizer everyday. I must say, I have been very pleased with this product.

The Orizée`s skincare line is also gluten free, cruelty free, and paraben free.

A little goes a long way, I actually still have some left from the samples I have received.

Orizee YUZU AND SHISO HYDRATING CREAM sample

Here are the benefits this product boasts.

Benefits

Stimulates circulation and promotes skin elasticity.
Stimulates cell rejuvenation
Deeply hydrates the skin
Anti-aging

It is definitely deeply hydrating. I have dry skin and often times I will feel tightness around my mouth in the afternoon with other moisturizers. But the Yuzu and Shiso hydrating cream keeps me hydrated for the whole day. I really like the light natural smell and consistency. Reminds me of rice pudding, goes on smooth and mattifies the skin.

At only $36 for a 120ml jar, I am definitely going to stock up on some before my sample runs out.

The rest of the products are priced at very reasonable amounts. I can't wait to try the entire line.

Since this wonderful natural line is made from SakeKasu, a nutrient dense, probiotic fermented rice paste that results from sake making I can't help but drum up an outfit inspired by rice grains.

I need to get inspiration from nature more often. I am really liking this color combination.
