I love Montagne Jeunesse Masks!

Very few people know this but I love face masks! 

My love started at 14 when I use to make my own concoctions. It was fun but a total mess. Once I started to make my own money, I bought the ones at the store. They were cheaper and much more effective. Montagne Jeunesse is among my favorites.
We pulp, crush, squeeze, juice and extract all of the goodness of nature's fruits and flowers to help make you beautiful. All products are vegetarian, never tested on animals or use suppliers who have, and are as green and eco-friendly as possible.
I reviewed the "Crystallised Honey & Passion Flower Mask"  in one of my earlier posts. 
It was gentle and smelled great.

 I'm thinking of creating a mask series to show you all what I use. 
Would you like to see that?

How to fix a water damaged eyeshadow!

Everyone has that one eyeshadow which looks so much better when its wet. Mine was a single eyeshadow from NYX.

After using it wet for a few months I realized that I didn't like the look of the shadow. I also noticed that it wasn't as pigmented anymore.

I had two options: scrape of the top (risk damaging it) or find a non evasive way to get off the of layer.

After racking my mind for a while I found some masking tape. Check out the results in the video below!

Essence Launches in Canada!

I could not contain my excitement when I received an invite to the Essence Launch Party.
As a beauty blogger, I have been reading essence posts on other blogs for years.
I've always admired their quality & affordable pricing. 

Thankfully Canadians like myself can now indulge in their goodies at
 Shoppers Drug Mart & Pharmprix!
Did you know?
  • Essence is the #1 Value Brand in the world.
  • Price range from $1.49 to $4.99
  • Sold in more than 55 countries worldwide
Here are some great pictures I took from their setup to get you familiar with the brand.
Mono Shadows $2.49
Stay with me Long Lasting Lipgloss $2.99
Eyeshadow Quattro $3.99
XXXL shine nude lipgloss $2.49
Color & Go quick drying nail polish $1.49
Mascaras ranging up to $4.99
They also offer unique limited edition collections with their value pricing. 
We can look for six collections per year!

I still can not get over the price of the essence line.
I have tested out some of the products and I'm astonished how great the quality is.
The eyeliners are long lasting, the glosses are not sticky and the polishes have great consistency.

I'm happy to see brands like Essence come to Canada and offer more variety at a lower cost.

GLEAM Lip & Body Radiance by Makeup Artist Melanie Mills

As a beauty blogger/MUA it's important to try out different brands. Earlier this year, I had the chance to try out some products from Emmy Award Winning makeup artist Melanie Mills. This was my first time hearing about Melanie but after learning about her impressive resume I had get my hands on her products. Her client list includes such notable entertainers as Brandy, Nicole Scherzinger, Kim Kardashian and more.

GLEAM Lip Radiance will be available in seven juicy shades that are tailored to fit every skin tone. Designed to make one’s lips “pop” and made with organic and botanical ingredients, GLEAM Lip Radiance not only moisturizes the skin but it can be used alone without lip liner and lasts all day – or night –long.

Left to Right: Unstoppable, With my Heels on, Up again the Wall & Unforgettable
The colors are GORGEOUS! 
Extremely smooth and pigmented.
I'm happy I picked four colors that work perfectly with my skin tone.

Don't believe me?
Check out these lip swatches!

"Unforgettable", Eggplant purple

"Up Against the Wall," a stunning siren brick red

"Unstoppable", a rich hot coral

"With My Heels On", a pure pop of fuchsia pink

GLEAM Body Radiance creates a natural lit from within glow for the skin in an easy application. The lightest to the deepest complexions are all made luminous by a formula that hides skin imperfections, even filling wrinkles and enhancing the texture of the skin thanks to GLEAM Body Radiance’s velvety botanical base. GLEAM can be applied in a light touch to highlight shoulders, décolleté or to massage in liberally like a lotion, for all-over perfection.
I blended them both into each other. 
I really wish my camera could pick up how gorgeous this looked!
