October Favourites 2016



Half the month has already flown by and the Holiday season is about to be in full swing. I've been trying to shop my stash for the month of October and get through a lot of the deluxe samples I've collected. Here are a few of my faves for the month of October:

  • The original LORAC Pro palette - this is one of my HG palettes
  • MAC Sheer Pressed Powder - I've been loving this to dust over my foundation
  • Too Faced Better than Sex Mascara - I usually go for waterproof mascaras but this one is pretty good!
  • Tarte Pure Maracuja Oil - My skin has been acting up lately and this oil has given back the moisture it needs
  • ColourPop Smoke n Whistles Highlighter
  • Sephora Passionate Blush
  • Benefit Hoola Bronzer - another HG product
  • Buxom Gloss in Sophia
  • Kat Von D liquid lipstick in Lolita - gorgeous for the Fall
  • ABH liquid lipstick in Craft - LOVES!
  • NARS Radiant Concealer - Amazing! I love the coverage and glow it gives. This will be coming with me on Vacation.

What have you guys been loving recently and what did you pick up during the Sephora Sale? Would love to know :)

September Favourites 2016


Gah! I am pretty late for my favourites this month. September went by so fast and was full of changes. I am so excited for the Fall months and the leaves changing. I am not excited for the rain though. For September I was loving a matte face and coppery eyes. Here are my faves for the month of September.

  • Kat Von D Lovesick Liquid Lipstick
  • Marc Jacobs Sugar Sugar Lip Gloss
  • MAC Oyster Girl Lipglass
  • Sephora Passionate Blush
  • NARS Radiant Concealer - OK this isn't "matte" but I love this concealer and the coverage it gives!
  • ColourPop Amaze Eyeshadow
  • ColourPop Swerve Eyeliner - I got this in one of my Ipsy glam bags and I love it!
  • Maybelline Baby Skin primer - Great drugstore primer!
  • Maybelline Fit Me Matte & Poreless foundation
  • Maybelline Lash Sensational Luscious Mascara - I also like the pink version of this mascara.
  • MAC Select Sheer Pressed Powder - for setting my face.

#UDVanCity Grand Opening & Sephora VIB Event Haul


September 10th was the Grand Opening of Urban Decay's first Canadian stand alone store @ Metrotown. The event brought together makeup enthusiast and bloggers to the store where they had meet & greets, gift cards for the first 100 in line and also a key that could potentially unlock 1 of 3 vault prizes. I unfortunately was not one of the lucky ones to get a vault prize or gift card. Nonetheless, the store opening was fun and I really enjoyed going through all of the Urban Decay products available. I picked up 3 items from the Grand Opening which were:

  • The Beached Bronzer
  • Vice Lipstick in Venom
  • Vice Lipstick in Shame
With my 3 purchases I was able to get a GWP which was a cute makeup pouch (pictured below) filled with some UD samples. 

On the same day Sephora was hosting an event to give early access to the upcoming Holiday collections. I didn't pick up any Holiday items but I did pick up a couple of lip & brow products.

  • Benefits Defined & Refined Brows kit - can't wait to use this! I've heard lots of good things about this product
  • ABH Liquid Lipstick in Dusty Rose
  • MUFE Lipstick in M401
With my purchase Sephora was also giving away a makeup pouch with a bunch of samples & deluxe samples (I <3 div="" samples="" sephora="">

Let me know if you would like any reviews on the products or swatches! PS. I am also hosting a giveaway on my Instagram @LuvabellCouture and am giving away a ColourPop quad in Beach Please. Be sure to check it out and enter!!
