Current Favourites (March, April & May!)

So... I've been gone for a hot minute! 3 months to be exact. Boy time is flying by and I can't believe we are already in June. Half the year is gone. Hope everyone is doing well :) For the past few months my makeup has changed and I've been trying to use up some items in my collection plus try out some new things. Here are just a few things that I have been loving currently.

  • Urban Decay Naked Basics 1 - an oldie but a goodie!
  • Clinique Beyond Perfecting Foundation and Concealer - this stuff makes my skin look so smooth. I guess that is why the call it "perfecting" LOL
  • Tarte Amazonian Clay 12 hour Full Coverage Foundation - Awesome coverage and lasting power.
  • Too Faced Sweet Peach Oil Lip Gloss in Pure Peach - Moisturizing and sheer pigmentation but still pretty. This has made yet another appearance on my favourtes!
  • Maybelline Colossal Big Shot - I use this almost everyday... I think I should retire it soon.
  • MAC Eyeliner in Smoulder
  • Urban Decay Original Eyeshadow Primer Potion
  • Essence Light up your face luminizer palette - This gives you a subtle highlight and you can mix the three luminizers
  • PF Butter Bronzer - Smells so good!
  • MAC Melba Blush
  • Milani Luminoso Blush 
  • CP Highlighter in Smokin' Whisltes - gorgeous highlight if you like cream highlights.
  • Maybelline Lipsticks in Blushing Beige, Ravishing Rose & Lust for Blush

#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!!
