Clinique High Impact Custom Black Kajal in Blackened Black, Brown, Blue & Green

There's a new eyeliner in town. It's the Clinique High Impact Custom Black Kajal ($21 CAD). 

The brand claims rich, dark, skip-proof colour with 12 hours of staying power. The Clinique High Impact Custom Black Kajal has a deceiving name. Not only available in black, rather there's 3 additional shades - Blackened Brown, Blackened Blue and Blackened Green. It's not the most extensive shade range, but it's great for those who like to keep it simple or switch up their black liner for something a tad different.

THREE THINGS: Barely There Makeup with CoverGirl

Since starting full time work this month, I've had to dial down my makeup routine quite a bit. I'm in a professional business environment, so I feel the most comfortable at work with a "barely there" kind of look. To help me achieve it, I've been getting a little help from a few products from CoverGirl.

NYX Soft Focus Tinted Primer in Medium Beige

It's not a foundation. It's not a tinted moisturizer. It's a tinted primer. As a complexion/foundation junkie, I was stoked to try the NYX Soft Focus Tinted Primer, a primer that's said to add a sheer hint of colour while creating a smooth base for makeup application.

HALLOWEEN: Creepy Cute Cat Nails #ManiMonday

Another Halloween nail art look! Again, it's a CutePolish-inspired look because I'm all about the easy nail art. Cats are cute but something about a bunch of black cats with little green eyes is a little bit creepy! 

Products Used: Formula X Peach Tea, Ceramic Glaze Little Black Dress, Essence Don't Be Shy!

Eye Love Eye Cream - Kate Somerville, NSPA, Life Brand, Vichy, Philosophy and more!

For the past 8 months, I've been rotating through 9 different eye creams. Nine is the teensiest bit excessive but I've been testing them all out to see which ones I like best. I'm in my 20s so my focus is wrinkle prevention and a little hydration along with keeping my undereyes looking fresh underneath makeup. So here it is. All the eye creams I've been trying. Different ones for different reasons.

HALLOWEEN: Easy Purple Skull Makeup (Chrisspy Inspired)

A skull is one of those really easy Halloween makeup looks that doesn't require an entire costume. It also calls for very little skill (just a bit of blending) and 5 or 6 products that you definitely have in your makeup collection - a foundation, an eyeliner, a black shadow, any other colour of shadow, and a bone coloured shadow are all you'll need. 

Chrisspy's rendition of this easy skull makeup was done with a warm brown and a black. I chose to do my re-creation in purple, because what's life without a little bit of colour?

eos Delicate Petals Hand Lotion

Just launched in late August, the eos Delicate Petals Hand Lotion ($3.99 CAD) is a new product from evolution of smooth. I reviewed the eos Hand Lotion in Berry Blossom years ago. The Delicate Petals Hand Lotion is really quite similar, just a brand new scent.
