Hey loves. On a trip to Walmart today I saw they were now carrying my very loved Rimmel Wake Me up Foundation (mine was sent in a swap) so I decided to grab the Concealer and see if I like it as much as the Foundation. Before I move on to the review let me just say this month has been my worst probably ever dealing with acne..with only one side of my face, yep strange but its all cleared up now. So in the pictures you will see how well it covers discoloration. 

I will say it again I Freakin LOVE this foundation. It covers well but doesn't look thick and dry. Leaves my skin beautifully glowing. Now on to the concealer a new product I have yet reviewed. 
The Wake Me Up Concealer is wonderful. It doesn't cover discoloration completely but it does brighten the area nicely and doesn't settle in to lines or look drying. The only issue I have is not choosing a light enough shade to brighten my under eye area even better. I thought the fair would be to light and went for light which matches my foundation. I think I will be using this product over top of my other concealers as a brightener on days I really need the help and alone on days I've had sleep:)

NO Make-Up:( 
Can you tell its been a bad skin month?

L'Oreal Color Riche Caresse Aqua Lip Lacquer

Hi Loves this review may be a surprising one from me after mostly positive ones over the past year. I have heard such great things about this product and was waiting for them to hit Canadian shelves so I could pick some up. I was at Shoppers and saw they were finally on display but with a $12+ sale price tag I decided to get one first to try.

If you know me at all you know I'm a lover of loud lipsticks but when they say stain they mean instant it touches your skin is stained, for someone that goes for the bold shades..not so good. I'm actually afraid to use this product since you cant rub your lips together or fix lines with your finger with out color getting everywhere. I'm not going to say all the shades are going to be like this ones or that its a bad product it just doesn't work that great for me. I will definitely use this one up carefully & maybe if I see them in a really good sale I will try a more natural shade that wont leave such noticeable mistakes:)

Hi Loves. The Shoppers across the street from my home finally got some of the products I have been waiting for so I picked somethings up to see if they are as awesome as I`ve heard they are. Alright maybe I went over board by buying almost every shade on the display but I couldn't decide and it helped they were on special:)

 Ok the Color Whispers are pretty Awesome. The lighter shades don`t have the best color pay off but still give a noticeable hint of color which is fine for what they are. The darker, deeper shades are more pigmented. They feel great on the lips, very moisturizing. No color bleeding at all like some of the Revlon Lip Butters do. I adore the packaging & the color range is wonderful from Nudes to Peach to Reds. I would love to get my hands on some more of these and I`ll definitely be looking out for future sales.

This Months Loves♥ (& Hates)

Hi Loves its time for my Monthly Loves. This time I decided to switch it up a bit and not only show the products I've been reaching for the most this month but also how I used them to create a my go to look. I also threw in some products that didn't work out for me. 

Smashbox BB Cream - L'oreal Lumi Foundation - Collection 2000 Concealer - Lancome Dual Finish Powder - Benefit Eye Bright - Lancome Tangerine Tint Blush - UD Naked 2 - Smashbox Gemstone Cream Shadow - L'oreal Carbon Black Mascara - L'oreal Infallible Cream Liner & Revlon Brilliant Strength polish in Enthrall.

I did a few things different this month including wearing shadow/liner under my lower lashes and using BB cream as a primer under my foundations.

And now for those products that didnt work out so well....
Fresh Soy Cleanser - Made my skin break out horribly. 
Splat Blue Envy Hair Dye - Did it twice and both times it was splotchy and only lasted a week instead of months
Physicians Formula Organics Tinted Moisturizer - This product looks great on the skin but there is something in it that makes my eyes water and burn even when applied no where near my eyes.

Hair Accessories Haul & Bows

Hi Loves Today I went out for lunch with my kids and popped into Ardene's to see what new hair accessories were in their 5 for $10 sections and I'm always looking for new bows since I sport them almost daily. I first saw some of the hair donuts I've heard a lot about so I picked a few up. As you can see I found a lot things I couldn't leave the store with out:)

On My Nails Tonight:)

Hey Lovelies. Today I was cleaning my kids craft area and came across a few things I thought would be fun for nail art from craft eyes and mustaches to loose glitter, um yeah it didn't go over too well lol. So I decided to go a more simpler route. The colors I used make me think of summer or I should say wish for it.

Models Own in Pink Punch

I did take pictures of my failed art attempts so you may see them in a post one of these days just for a laugh:)
