I Don't Know What to Name This : Colorful Summer Makeup

Hey all! Today I have another really colorful sort of pastel summer makeup look. I have no clue what I should name this one, hence the title I guess. If you have any ideas please let me know in the comments! I would highly appreciate it! Without further ado, here the makeup look :)

Updated : What's in my Makeup Bag [2014 Edition]

Hey everyone! It's been a while since I've shown you what I carry in makeup bag so I thought I would share what I've been carrying for the past few weeks. To be frank, when I'm home, I seldom carry a makeup bag. I don't really do touch-ups on the go and especially during the summer, I don't wear that much makeup from day-to-day. I've been away from home for the past few weeks (I went on vacation to Mexico and living at my parent's during my Montreal internship) so my makeup bag has seen a lot more use recently.

Since I was travelling and since I'm not home at the moment, I wanted to pack only a few compact items that could help me achieve a polished and natural look if I wanted to, without bringing a bunch a makeup. Here's what I've been carrying around :

  • Brushes : Eco Tools brushes from the Essential Eye Set and the Mineral Set. They are all travel sized, so they barely take up any space in my makeup bag! I use the kabuki for powders, the large shading brush for highlighter and shadow and the small shading brush and blending brush for eyeshadow.
  • Powders, blushes and bronzers : I carry the Rimmel Stay Matte powder, the Stila Kitten Highlighting Duo, a mini Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in Memorable, a mini Hoola bronzer by Benefit and a Tony Moly Crystal Jelly Cheek pot in 01.
  • Liners and mascara : I have the Tony Moly Partylover liquid eyeliner, a Smashbox mini black pencil liner and a deluxe sample of the Bareminerals Buxom mascara.
  • Foundation and concealer : I'm carrying a baby size of the Laura Mercier foundation primer and tinted moisturizer as well as a sample jar of the MAC pro longwear concealer. I also have the Garnier Roll-on tinted treatment. 
  • Eyeshadow : I have a mini Urban Decay Primer potion as well as the Urban Decay Naked Basics which is tiny and really perfect for your makeup bag/travel.
  • Others : I also carry Ombrelle sunscreen samples and Dole lipbalm just in case!

That's all I carry in my makeup bag right now! What are your beauty on-the-go essentials? Let me know in the comments :) Also leave any post request so I know what you would like to see next! <3

Pokemon Series : Kakuna Inspired Makeup Look

 Hello everyone! So it's been ages since I've last posted a makeup look. Like I said in my previous couple of posts, I've been ridiculously busy with school. I've been on internship for the past month and most of it was in Montreal which means I wasn't home. It's been almost impossible to do makeup away from home since I didn't have the right setup for it. (trust me, I tried and the results were really terrible :/) I'm back home now, but still doing another internship 40 hours a week. I'm really tired whenever I get back so it only leaves me with the weekend to work on the blog.

Thankfully I found a bit of time this week to prepare a few makeup looks for you all! I also found this Kakuna makeup I did before I left that I never had the chance to use. I don't remember all the products I used to create it tough so I'll just explain briefly what I remember. I used mostly my BH 120 1st Edition Palette and the Coastal Scents 88 Warm for the shadows. I can't remember the false lashes, brow products or liner I used but the mascara is the Clump Crusher as usual. Hope you all enjoy this one! Let me know what other Pokemon looks you'd like to see me do :)

Check out my other posts from the Pokemon Series : Bulbasaur, Charmander, Squirtle, Kakuna, Arbok, Pikachu, Vulpix, Jigglypuff, Zubat, Oddish, Meowth, Gyarados

Project 10$/Week 2014 Update and Haul - Weeks 24 through 27

Hey everyone! As promised, here is my latest project 10$/week update! I'm still on track and very proud to be :) This is weeks 24 through 27 of my resolution. Check it out :


  • Revlon Colorstay Liquid Liner (7$) : I strongly regret this purchase. It's my first project 10$ purchase that I regret and I'm kicking myself for not researching my purchase before getting this liner. I hate everything about it, it's way too matte, it cracks, it's hard to apply because of the fat pointy hard felt tip brush and you can't get a nice even line with it. Looks like 1 week gone down the drain, oh well :S Hope I've learned my lesson now.
  • Tony Moly Party Lover Liquid Liner (7$, on sale) : Now this is what I'm talking about! This liner is the bomb and it's quickly becoming a favorite. The brush is super thin, the formula dark and opaque and it's really budge-proof. <3 It reminds me of my dear E.l.f liquid liner, but I think I like it even more!
  • L'Oréal Infallible shadow in Tender Caramel (3$, on sale) : Just like my Amber rush shadow from the same collection, I adore this! Great pigmentation, beautiful color and amazing metallic finish!
  • Tony Moly Crystal Jelly Cheek Pot in 07 (7$, on sale) : This cream to powder blush has a really odd consistency, but I've been wearing it non-stop. I love the natural finish and this color suits me quite nicely I think. These Tony Moly products are really great so far, I'm thinking of getting more!
  • Maybelline Babyskin Primer (12$) [Not pictured] : I don't have it with me in Montreal at the moment so I haven't had that much time to play around with it yet. I do think it's quite expensive though. Not sure about this yet, but I really wanted to give it a try!
Price total : 36$
Week equivalent : 4 weeks

In case you haven't been following my project 10$/week since the beginning of 2014, here's a recap of the products I have gotten so far :

Project 10$/week recap :

  • NARS Orgasm & Laguna Duo and Urban Decay 24/7 Glide on Pencil Trio = 80$
  • Katy Perry Meow perfume and Bourgeois Healthy Skin Serum = 50$
  • Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder Trio and Urban Decay Naked Basics palette = 100$
  • Maybellin Babyskin Primer and L'Oréal Infallible shadow in Tender Caramel = 15$
  • Revlon Colorstay Liquid Liner = 7$
  • Tony Moly Partylover Liner and Crystal Jelly Cheek Pot in 01 = 14$
Total : 26,6 weeks = 27 weeks

Next purchases : 
My next purchases are a bit of a dilemma right now. I feel like I have too many options to choose from. I want a few Elf things and I would also like to try the Essence brand. I also really want a MAC palette but it's incredibly expensive (~200$ yikes). I definitely want more Tony Moly products as well as more Korean cosmetics (especially a BB cream!). Finally, I'd like to put some of my budget aside to be able to get stuff from the Sephora Christmas collection since they always have a bunch of really nice gift sets. I'm really unsure about what I should choose. Let me know what you would do if you were me!  It would help me a lot to get all of you guys' opinions. <3

That's it for this update! Hope you all enjoyed it! Let me know what I should get next in the comments and also any post or review request :)
