Hi lovelies! I had won a blog giveaway some time ago and one of the prizes was a multi-pack of Japanese eyelashes with different styles. I fell deeply in love with one of the styles and needed to get more. This is the Diamond Lash Volume series in the style called Sexy (Sekushii) Eye. My bf insisted on "sekushii". I purchased the eyelash pack on Ebay from user yoicho29 and you can find the listing here. It cost me $18.90 plus $2.40 USD for shipping to Canada. I ended up paying a total of $21.30 USD for these eyelashes, which means that each pair of eyelashes costs $4.26. This actually isn't too bad for a pair of eyelashes that can be reused several times.

Hi lovelies! My lovely bf picked up a bunch of these Rimmel 60 Seconds nail polishes from Walmart several months ago. I absolutely love this line! It is dirt cheap and comes in fun colours. Each bottle is smaller than your average nail polish, but costs less than $4 CAD. This line is a great, cheap way to add more shades to your collection and is very budget friendly. I highly recommend these Rimmel nail polishes.
The colour range is quite beautiful. Mintilicious is a pretty minted light aqua blue with a cream finish. It applies opaque in two coats and dries very quickly. I used NYX Under the Moon Glitter Nail Polish on top, which is a holographic glitter in a blue jelly base. The NYX glitter polish darkened Mintilicious a bit.

Hi lovelies! I was running low on Etude House Real Art Cleansing Oil and wanted to try something else. I ended up ordering Skin Food Fresh Apple Pore Cleansing Oil from Ebay. I bought mine from globalcommerce for $15.68 USD including shipping. I am very happy with the Skin Food cleansing oil!
Skinfood Fresh Apple Pore Cleansing Oil 150mL:
"A lightweight cleansing oil that thoroughly removes even the toughest makeup along with pore-clogging impurities. Contains fresh unripe green apple extract. Unripe green apples have a bitter, astringent flavor that helps control sebum production and tighten enlarged pores.
Cetyl ethylhexanoate, mineral oil, peg-20 glyceryl trisosterate, bis-ethoxydiglycol cyclohexane 1,4-dicarboxylate,sorbeth-30 tetraoleate, octyldodecanol, pyrus malus (apple) fruit extract, parfum
1. Dispense a few pumps onto a dry palm and apply to the face in massaging motions.
2. Wet fingertips and massage skin until the oil turns into a milky texture. Double-cleanse with a foaming cleanser.
Let's see how well this oil cleanser performs ~

Hi lovelies! My bf bought me a load of nail polishes from Walmart a while ago and L'Oreal New Money is one of the new nail polishes we picked out. I am very impressed with the formula and I love the colour! New Money is a bright yellow-green that is very spring. Although spring has not quite arrived in Winnipeg yet, I am in the mood for these bright, cheery colours.

Hi lovelies! I've been really enjoying the Too Faced Natural Eye Palette that I purchased last fall. My favourite to go look has constantly been a neutral eye with false lashes and bright lips. I absolutely adore this palette and have been using it all the time. This palette is really well made and has a good mix of basic, every day shades of browns, champagne, and gold with a sheer matte white for highlighting underneath the brows. This palette is definitely made for a natural eye.
The packaging is very cute and well designed. It fits in the palm of my hand. The first row are mattes, the second row are frosty, and the last row are more metallic. These eyeshadows are not fully pigmented and offer some sheerness that is appropriate for a natural eye.
