hola! todays post features some beauty products that i have been lovin!

i like natural looking makeup, i don’t often wear makeup, only for special occasions, but when i do, i want it to enhance my natural features, not hide them. my favourite makeup / skincare brand is glossier, i love the message they are sending out ;   skin first, makeup second. i am trying really hard to put skincare in front of makeup, so i am establishing a skincare routine and trying to stick to it. enough of me rambling, lets talk about the products!

01. imperialis moisturizer from lush  –   this is the best! i love the feeling of being moisturized throughout the day, and this moisturizer gets the job done, really well. it has a bit of a floral scent, but is not super noticeable, which is nice.

02. mario badescu rosewater spray  –   after applying moisturizer, i spray this rosewater spray on my face, i also apply it after i do my makeup as a setting spray. it has a soft scent of roses, which is amazing! definitely going to be repurchasing!

03. maybelline fit me concealer   –   when i wear concealer, this is my go to. it covers up redness and blemishes slightly, while still giving your face a natural look. it lets uneven skin tones, freckles, and pimples show, which is nice.

04. glossier cloud paint   –   i received these two cream blushes for my birthday and have been obsessed with them ever since! they give your face a beautiful natural glow. i have them in the shade puff and beam.

05. eyelash curler  –  i’m not sure where this one is from, but it does the job well. there isn’t much to say about it aha.

06. glossier birthday flavoured balm dotcom   –  this is another favourite, my glossier lip balm. it has little sparkles, but you can’t really notice them, so it is great to wear outside of the house. oh, did i mention, it smells like cake!

that is all for my makeup / skincare routine, i hope you enjoyed. what is your favourite beauty product? tell me by leaving a comment below   x x x  jasper

 

 

february favourites ☆

Hello! February was a good month, a little on the stressful side though because of school (surprise surprise.) It consisted of eating lots of yummy food, exploring the city, and hanging out with friends and family. Second term just ended, and my break start in a week and a half! I’m not going anywhere exotic over the break, just skiing and to Vancouver (I’m so excited to go shopping, expect some hauls), and hopefully we will go surfing! My grandparents are visited, so that will be fun. I will also try to post more frequently, may two or three times a week.

Now onto my favourite items from this past month.

 

+ glossier cloud paint

I have raved about this amazing product so much. It is a cream blush in such a gorgeous colour. It has an amazing formula, blending easily, and it makes you look naturally flushed! I have it in both the shade puff, a baby pink, and beam a pretty coral.

 

+ hoop earrings

Hoop earring are just an essential. I purchased this little pair of hoops from a boutique downtown, and have been wearing them ever since!

 

+ the sun and her flowers

I love love love this book! It is full of poems fit for any (and every!) mood and includes illustrations  hand drawn by Rupi Kaur. I recommend this book so much!

 

+ gorgeous washi tape

I am quite a big fan of stationary, especially washi tape and when I saw these ones, I fell in love! I believe they are from a store in New York, but I’m not totally sure

 

+ lush body conditioner

This body conditioner is called Bucks Fizz, and it is the greatest! I slather it all over my self before I hop in the shower and when I get out, it leaves my skin feeling moisturized, oh and you will smell like a lovely orange!!

winter skincare

Processed with VSCO with hb2 preset

Hello! In the winter, my skin is not at its best, so I have to step up my skincare game. The cold weather leaves my skin pretty dry. Stress is another factor leading to blemished skin, and school = stress!! I like sticking to a simple routine, and these are a bunch of my favourite products! lets get onto the post!

Screen Shot 2018-01-04 at 1.23.44 PM

  1. IMPERIALIS  MOISTURIZER – this is hands down my favourite moisturizer. it is so creamy and blends perfectly. i use this product twice a day, once before i put on my makeup and in the evening before i go to bed. it is from lush and is on the pricey side, but there is so much product in it so it will last a long time.
  2. MARIO BADESCU ROSE WATER FACIAL SPRAY – i purchased this product from urban outfitters and it quickly became a favourite. i use it as a setting spray, and oh does it ever smell good! it leaves you feeing energized and awake.
  3. GARNIER SKIN ACTIVE MICELLAR WATER – this is one of my favourite products. i use it to take of my makeup and to freshen up in the morning. i have been through two travel sized bottles and am halfway through this one. it is perfect if you are lazy like me, because you don’t even have to rinse it off!
  4. TEA TREE SKIN CLEARING FACIAL WASH – i bought this product not to long ago and i love it. it is a gel like formula and i just dab it on my cheeks, chin, nose and forehead, then scrub in with a cleansing pad (number 9 on the list!) then i rinse.
  5. BREATH OF FRESH AIR TONER – this is my favourite toner. it contains sea water, aloe, rosemary oil and several other herbs. it leaves your skin super refreshed. you can buy this product at lush.
  6. FRESH SUGAR LIP POLISH – i love this product so much. it is like a lip-scrub and it leaves your lips super smooth. you can buy it at sephora.
  7.  1,000 MILLHELENS FACE MASK – this is a gel face mask from lush. it evens your skin tone and smells like witch hazel and green tea! i use this product once a week.
  8. FRESH SUGAR LIP SERUM –  this serum smoothes your lips. i apply this once or twice a week, and it works so well. it also smells really good! you can buy it at sephora.
  9. QUO FACE SCRUB PAD THING – i have no clue what this is called, but it is from the brand quo. i use it with the tea tree face wash.

glossier review

Processed with VSCO with hb2 preset

 

Hello! I hope you all have been having an excellent winter (or summer for my aussie friends)  I recently purchased some products from glossier. You have probably seen these beautifully packaged products all over social media. Glossier is a small, online makeup brand, made famous by their product “the boy brow.” Today I will be sharing with you my purchases!

Enjoy x x x  Jasper

I purchased three products from glossier, 2 cloud paints and one balm dotcom. To my delight, my package included a makeup bag, many stickers, and a free sample of their perfume, as well as the products I ordered.

Screen Shot 2017-12-24 at 12.23.03 PM

First of all, can we talk about how cute the packaging is?!?!?! I love how everything is very minimalistic, colourful, and so aesthetically pleasing. Glossier is known for their beautiful packaging, and I think that the packaging really draws buyers.

Screen Shot 2017-12-24 at 12.19.44 PM

These are the stickers they included in my package. I love every single one of them. I haven’t used them yet, but I can see myself sticking them on my laptop or on my phone-case in the future!

Screen Shot 2017-12-24 at 12.20.36 PM

I also received this perfume sample, and to be honest, I’m not a fan of the scent. It has a bit of an earthy scent. The quality is great, it is just a personal preference. Now on the the actual products I ordered!

Screen Shot 2017-12-24 at 12.19.00 PM

I ordered three products. A lip balm and two cream blushes.

 

Screen Shot 2017-12-24 at 12.21.37 PM

This is the lip balm I purchased. It is called the birthday balm dotcom and I ensure you that it lives up to its name! It smells like delicious homemade cake and contains many little sparkles. There are a ton of different flavours, and I am looking forward to trying them all in the future. However, they are quite pricey. They are sold for $15 CAD on the glossier website.

 

Screen Shot 2017-12-24 at 12.22.15 PM

Next up are the cloud paints. I bought these two blushes in a package deal. Normally they are $22 CAD each, but I purchased 2 for $36. When using this product, keep in mind that a little goes a very long way. It is sometimes difficult to control the amount of product that comes out, but the blushes are very sheer and build able.

 

Screen Shot 2017-12-24 at 12.18.27 PM

The first cloud paint I purchased is in the shade puff. Puff is a pretty, rosy pink. I love how natural it looks on your skin. Keep in mind that you do not have to limit this product to your cheeks! You can dab it on your eyelids or lips!

 

Screen Shot 2017-12-24 at 12.18.00 PM

Next is beam. Beam is a beautiful coral. It may appear orange, but when applied to your skin, it looks super glowy and natural.

Screen Shot 2017-12-24 at 12.22.33 PM

Overall, I completely loved all these products. The packaging is absolutely adorable and the quality is great. However, I was expecting the products to be larger. They are quite small, but there is lots of product in them. The main message is, yes, I would definitely buy from them again.

fall skincare essentials

Processed with VSCO with hb1 preset

Hello! I have been so busy with school work and volleyball, so I haven’t been posting as often as I would like to be. Volleyball season is almost over, so expect more posts in the near future. Anyways, today I am going to be sharing some fall skincare essentials. I posted a blogpost similar to this one not too long ago, but I updated my skincare collection. You can find the old post here. Also, I decided to not limit this post to just face products, so I added in some lotion and shower jellies!

Processed with VSCO with hb2 preset

I recently ran out of my favourite face mask, also from lush, and I decided to give this one a try. I’m pretty sure that this is a fairly new product sold at lush. There are several different types of this mask too. After using it, it leaves your skin feeling super fresh and smooth. You can purchase this product at lush for $14.

Next is this moisturizer by neutrogena. I use it everyday, and I love it! You can purchase this product at your local drugstore.

I have had this shower jelly from lush (no surprise haha) for quite a while. After using it, your skin feels so fresh and rejuvenated!

I recently purchased this rosewater facial spray by Mario Badescu at Urban Outfitters, and I have used it every single day. It leaves your skin feeling refreshed and leaves you smelling like roses! Whats not to love?

This is my favourite hand cream. It is from lush and is called the ‘charity pot.’ One of the reasons why I love it is because the money is going towards a great cause; empowering women to create a sustainable future. There are other types of organizations too, like wildlife preservation for example.

I use this SkinActive Micellar Water from Garnier everyday. I removes your makeup so easily and you don’t even have to rinse it off!
