Hello everyone! Long time no blog but school has been pretty hectic and I’m in the midst of creating a game right now so just a quick post today.

Christmas Wishlist

20 Dec

Hello everyone! So last year I posted up a Christmas wishlist and I thought I would do it again even though it’s kinda late and everyone I know has already purchased presents for me but I still wanted to put this up. I’ve spread this out considering my tastes in many different fields.

1. Socks. I am a HUGE sock fan so any type of new sock designs or cute socks I am all over it. It’s like my kryptonite.

2. An awesome keyboard like this one from ThinkGeek.com.

3. Make Up Forever Set from Sephora. Enough said it’s an awesome deal.

HD Complexion Starter Kit ($109 Value)

4. Martha Stewart Circle Cutter. It’s been on my wishlist for some time now but no one wants to get it for me…

5. The third installment of the Professor Layton series I have the first two and the new one that was released in October (The Last Spectre). I need to make a complete set!!

And the last thing that I would like is… a Starbucks gift card. I see my sister use hers all the time and would really like one with a cool design.

So what is on your guys’ wishlists?

Review: Dior Addikt Lipstick in 422 Tokyo

29 Jul

Hello everyone! Another high-end post today I think I’m on a high end makeup kick… anyways, onto the review.

Product Description: This lipstick is described as a hydrating lip color and has a hydrating and voluminzing property while giving color and high gloss shine. 422 Tokyo is described as a sheer peachy pink.

Review: First off, packaging. The packaging is pretty dense and has a heavy weight to it (the weight of luxury?) and the end opens up with a doorknob type feature at the bottom of the tube. The outside sports a nice shiny effect with multi color reflections and has Dior raised on the edge on one side. Absolutely gorgeous and stunning for lipstick packaging. The formula is a pretty good formula it does provide a nice sheen to your lips and is a pretty shade. I think the peachy pink shades work well for most skintones and it does have some micro shimmers in it. There is no scent to them and for complaints I surprisingly don’t have any (and it’s not like I don’t have any because of the brand/luxury of it). A great lipstick for those willing to spend money on it (my wallet practically died).

Cost: $28USD /$31CDN @ Sephora or Dior counters

Would I recommend this product? Yes I would totally recommend this product for those who are interested in the formula and are willing to spend a good amount of money on their lipstick. I will totally repurchase this lipsitck line whenever I find some money or win the lottery.

Review: Tokidoki Prism Lipgloss

27 Jul

Hello everyone! A higher end makeup brand sold at Sephora that I am going to review today. These are quite loved by the Muse over at Musingsofamuse.com.

Product Description: A sheer nourishing high shine lipgloss with a yummy blueberry scent and non-sticky formula. It also contains protective kudzu and marine extracts. Ninja Dog is a blue lipgloss that is essentially clear and Burger is a orange gloss with a slight orange tint when worn.

Review: First of all I have to say it. The packaging OMG soooo cute! I think that the images and characters are the selling point for Tokidoki. Other than the packaging the yummy juicy blueberry scent and taste are lovely. For those who don’t like scents or flavours to your lipgloss you’ll have to bow out of these they don’t have a strong scent and taste but it is pretty strong. This is a pretty standard gloss with no stickiness and is only sheer. Are they worth the $20CDN pricetag for me? I personally don’t think so as there are probably better glosses in the drugstore but I would love the pick up another one due to the characters on them. (yeah I’m a packaging junkie)

Cost: $15USD/$20CDN @ Sephora

Would I recommend this product? I totally would they are quite addictive and the characters are extremely cute. I would purchase more but I rarely finish a lipgloss so I’ll just bear with the two I currently have.

Review: The Balm Bahama Mama Bronzer

18 Jul

Hello everyone! Summer make up means to me bronze goddess! So bronzer is a must for that sun-kissed glow.

Review: Bahama Mama is a matte bronzer with a brown shade as the base color. So it’s not like most bronzers out in the drugstore which can run a bit orange. It doesn’t have any sparkle/glitter/shimmers and has no scent. I got this in a gift with purchase at Rexall drugstores so mine isn’t the full sized version. This works great as a contour shade and a cheek color as well. It adds a nice shadows and can make you look like you got a real tan (if you use it all over). It is pretty pigmented and applies smoothly over the face. I love that it’s matte and doesn’t appear too orangey on my skintone. What I dislike is the packaging I find that as I am applying the bronzer the top can flip back down thus closing the product. And I don’t think the mirror included was of any use. Overall, a pretty good bronzer I won’t be repurchasing this anytime soon as I’m not a big bronzer fan but if I do feel like getting any bronzer it would be this one.

Cost: $19USD/ $23CDN @ Sephora.com, Rexall Drugstores

Would I recommend this product? Yes I would it works great as a contour shade and a bronzer.
