What’s In My Makeup Bag: Winter Edition

Hello, lovelies!

I incorporate products into my makeup routine each winter that are hydrating, pigmented and bright. I love lipstick shades that are bold, eyeshadow that is sparkly, and skincare products that hydrate. Here’s a peek into my winter makeup bag!

MAC Matte Lipstick in Diva

A dark, vampy lipstick shade is a staple in my makeup bag during winter. I adore MAC’s Lipstick in the shade ‘Diva’ because it is a beautiful mulberry-red that pairs effortlessly with a smoky eye or a no-makeup look.

Caudalie Vinosource Serum

I suffer from extra-dry skin each winter. I recently incorporated Caudalie’s Vinosource Serum into my skincare routine to give my skin extra moisture. I apply the serum each morning, and have noticed a dramatic improvement in the level of moisture in my skin!

Tarte Sea Glass Eyeshadow Set

When I think of wintery eyeshadow, the word ‘sparkle’ always comes to mind. This eyeshadow set from Tarte features four lustrous liquid eyeshadow shades that are ultra-reflective. I adore wearing these eyeshadows when I want a makeup look with extra pop!


3 Hydrating Skin Care Products That I Swear By

Hello, lovelies!

Dryness is my skin’s worst enemy. I’ve recently incorporated products into my skincare routine that moisturize, nourish, and hydrate. Out of all the products I’ve tried to hydrate my skin, I’ve found three that are holy-grail items!

Laneige Water Sleeping Mask

This face mask by Laneige is an ideal product to boost hydration in my skin. It is a lightweight gel mask that absorbs into my skin for extra moisture and hydration. If my skin feels dry and tight, I apply this mask and my skin instantly becomes soft, plump and hydrated. It is formulated with Hydro Ionized Water to deliver doses of moisture to the skin.

Caudalie Vinosource Thirst Quenching Serum 

I recently incorporated this serum into my skincare routine. The lightweight serum contains hyaluronic acid to calm and hydrate my skin. I apply it daily underneath moisturizer and my skin is silky and hydrated without feeling sticky. I’ve used this serum for the past 6 weeks and my skin never feels tight or dried out.

Drunk Elephant Marula Oil

Drunk Elephant’s Marula Oil introduces oil into my skin that doesn’t feel greasy or sticky. I was hesitant to try an oil on my skin, but it nourishes and hydrates my skin without leaving any residue. I lightly dab the oil around my t-zone and cheeks for smoother, quenched skin.



Erin Angela’s Lastest Sephora Haul

Hello, lovelies!

I recently placed Sephora order to drain the remainder of the gift cards I’d received during Christmas. I replenished a few skincare products, tried new makeup products, and added a few surprises to this haul.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz

I finally tried this iconic product from Anastasia Beverly Hills! I bought a Brow Wiz, which is a brow pencil and spoolie combination that grooms brows and fills them in. My brows are a light brown colour, and I wanted to find a darker pencil shade to give them depth and dimension. I love that this pencil is travel-friendly and pigmented.

GlamGlow Water Burst Hydrating Moisturizer

I’ve relied on this moisturizer since June of last year, and my skin has remained soft and hydrated. This moisturizer is lightweight and doesn’t irritate my skin. It takes me ages to finish a skincare product, and I was actually excited to reach the bottom of this jar! This lightweight, fruity-scented moisturizer has a gel-cream consistency.

Caudalie Vinosource Serum 

My skin becomes incredibly dry during the winter months. I moisturize after I cleanse each morning, but quickly noticed that my skin felt dry and tight. I picked up Caudalie’s Vinosource Serum upon recommendation, and the lightweight serum treats dehydration in my skin. After one use, my skin instantly felt more hydrated and plump. I apply this serum each morning and my skin is silky and fresh.

REVIEW: Caudalie Instant Detox Mask

Hello, lovelies!

I recently received a sample of the Caudalie Instant Detox Mask from Sephora. While my skincare routine is fairly regimented, I enjoy trying new masks to clarify and detoxify my skin. This mask contains a variety of natural ingredients to clean the pores and reduce excess oil.

The Packaging

This packaging is quite earth-toned and soothing. The mask comes in a mint-green tube that bears the Caudalie logo and a floral design. This tube is lightweight and travel-friendly. My favourite aspect of the packaging is that the mask can be dispensed onto my palm without placing my fingers into the product.

The Mask

The first thing I noticed about this mask was its beautiful pale pink colour. This mask has a gritty texture that feels deep-cleaning when applied to the skin. It contains grape marc to detofixy, pink clay and coffee to absorb dirt and excess oil, and papaya to brighten. These natural ingredients feel soothing and non-irritating on the skin. After using this mask, my skin felt clearer, brighter and smooth.

How to use it

I like to use this mask 1-2 times per week. I apply a thin layer to my skin, leave it on for 5-10 minutes then rinse.

Caudalie’s Instant Detox Mask worked well to clear my skin, and did not feel chalky or tight like other masks I’ve tried. If you’re looking for a soothing mask to add into your skincare routine, I’d recommend this one! Caudalie’s Instant Detox Mask retails for $47 at Sephora.

3 Products I Use Weekly to Achieve Clear Skin

Hello, lovelies!

My skincare routine changes like the weather (literally!). Finding products and a routine that works for me is constant progress, and I regularly switch my skincare routine to suit my skin, the environment, and my personal preferences. At present, there are three essential products that I incorporate into my skincare routine every week to achieve clear, glowing skin.

1. Tatcha The Deep Cleanse

Tatcha’s The Deep Cleanse is my daily face cleanser. This gel cleanser has dramatically cleared my skin while gently cleansing it without feeling harsh. I adore how the gentle cleanse helps to deep-clean my pores and reduce any breakouts. My skin is typically dry and acne-prone – my favourite aspect of this cleanser is that it never leaves my skin feeling dry or tight.

2. Caudalie Instant Detox Mask

I apply a face mask 1-2 times per week. Caudalie’s Instant Detox Mask is clay-based and draws out excess oil and impurities from my skin. This clay mask is ideal for my acne-prone skin, thanks to natural essential oils and pink clay to reduce bacteria, breakouts, and dullness.

3. Tata Harper Purifying Mask

After receiving a sample of this mask, I bought a larger jar! This mask is quite unique, as it is a full cleansing treatment. It is deep-cleansing, but leaves my skin feeling refreshed, smooth and refined. This mask is composed of a blend of herbs and natural ingredients to create a clay-like mask that doesn’t feel heavy on the skin.
