Beauty : New Items I'm loving

Whilst trying to come up with an everyday makeup routine, I have been testing some new beauty products for the past month. Today on the blog, I will be sharing the ones that have worked really well with my skin type and skin complexion and have made the cut to be added to my collection. These are products that I have absolutely love and will definitely be restocking on.










The Holy Grail of Face Illuminator! First of all, can we admire how beautiful and gorgeous the packaging is : 😍. Everything about this illuminator is amazing, from the packaging to the pigmentation, to the texture, and the application. With a hint of warm undertones, it blends smoothly with my skin complexion. Paired with my NARS blush in Orgasm, this illuminator works perfectly and gives an amazing natural glow.


Morphe Brushes have been my absolute favourite ever since the beginning of my makeup journey. I used to own a beauty blender but I personally prefer brushes, it gives me more control. I own so many of their brushes and I would not have it any other way. Every single one of their brushes are so soft, and smooth, and feel amazing on the skin. They are very lightweight which makes it really easy to blend with the skin





The Sephora Concealer works wonders on my dark circles, it's easily build-able and full coverage, I use it for my everyday makeup. I restocked mine during the Sephora Sale last year, and the price dropped to $7/each, such an amazing deal. If I want a more long lasting result, I combine it with my NARS Concealer in Biscuit. It is definitely a great alternative for everyday use; almost half the price of the NARS one.




The Sephora Matte Lipstick is the perfect matte burgundy shade for my skin complexion. It creates such a bold and edgy look. I usually wear nude lipsticks, but every now and then I like to pop on a bold colour, to break the cycle (I'm so dramatic, I know).  This Sephora Matte Lipstick has been added to my bold lipstick collection along with Colour Pop Matte Lipstick in Tulle and Rooch, Kat Von D in Hawkind





For someone who's not so good at eyeshadow makeup, I've got a pretty
big collection. Let me know if you would want to see it in a
future blog post.

As soon as Sephora started carrying the Morphe palettes, I immediately placed my order. I've always had my eye on their palettes but never got around to buying them due to the massive shipping fee from the US. But now, not only does Sephora carry Morphe products, but there's also a huge Morphe store in Square One Mall, Mississauga. The 35O2 Pallette has 35 warm tones, all perfect for my skin tone. It has a very creamy and pigmented formula. They each blend effortlessly to the skin and you can easily create so many different makeup looks . My favourite shades so far are : Heat, Chestnut, Brave, and Brunette.



Until next time my fellow makeup lovers ♡

  4. That illuminator looks AMAZING, I can just imagine what a beautiful glow that gives when applied. I absolutely love the Morphe 35O2 palette, I got it a while ago as a gift and I definitely use it more than any other palette I own - I'm such a sucker for warm toned palettes. The darker matte lipstick looks stunning and I really want some Morphe brushes, I've heard amazing things about them.

    1. Yes yes and yes, the illuminator is just perfect and the palette even more so, but the brushes are so soft, makes blending so easy, and I've had them for a few years now and they're all still in perfect condition :)

  6. I love the Morphe 35O2 Palette! I find it a versatile palette and actually mainly use it for my brows! I am constantly changing my hair colour between brunette and red and it covers all bases really. Morphe brushes are also my favourite, but only the Gilded collection as I found my other Morphe brushes shed or go out of shape when I wash them. I love the look of that highlighter though and seriously want to try it out!

    1. Wow, I did not know that you could use it for brows :) that's amazing. We are the same, I constantly switch from brown highlights to red highlights for my hair, and I usually go for warmer eyeshadow colours, so this palette is just perfect for me. I'm so sorry that your other makeup brushes shed, I am very careful with mine when I wash them, and I always hang them up to dry so the shape stays intact. You should definitely try the illuminator, it's an unbelievable glow.

  11. OMG! I love makeup posts, I always find something new I might want to try and for me that is the concealer. I like Sephora branded products but I mostly try the lippies and shadows and never really tried face products. Also you can NEVER go wrong with Morphe palettes! :D

    1. Yeah, I was really impressed with it, I bought because it was so cheap, just to try something new, but it turned out to be something that I constantly buy now, and it obviously helps a lot to save some $$$

    1. You should, they're quite good and more affordable.
      I would recommend their lipsticks, the concealer, and their single eyeshadow shades.
      They're definitely a steal!

  14. I really like this post.
    The eye shadow palette looks amazing.
    I agree with you regarding beauty blenders. I used to use them but got tired.
    I can't apply makeup with them as flawlessly as the influencers do.
    For me, brushes are much better.

    1. Thanks hun :)
      It's not the application that bothers me, it's cleaning the beauty blender, I just don't see it working long term. Brushes are easier to clean and easier to control.

    1. Thank you. The face illuminator is honestly out of my budget, but I ended up getting it anyway :) and I wouldn't have it any other way, it's just gorgeous and really gives you an awesome glow.

    1. I agree 100%, I still haven't used all the shades in the palette yet. There are so many variations that you can use, and you can create so many great makeup looks with it!

    1. This is the only eyeshadow palette I own from them, but trust me when I say that I will be going back for more. For 35 shades in one palette, all gorgeous and for such an affordable price, it's definitely a steal!

  18. What a beautiful post - your imagery is so delicate and gorgeous! My favourites here have to be the Morphe palette as reds and warm tones are my absolute favourites (and Morphe is just a brand of solid quality) and the Laura Mercier highlighter - it's so beautiful!
