Monday is mask day part 2

Welcome, back everyone. Today is mask day, I will be testing out Boscia.

So grab your coffee, pull up a seat and let’s get started.

On sephora, it’s states, an innovative, powerful, mineral-rich mask infused with activated charcoal that peels off to deliver powerful detoxifying, purifying, and brightening effects.

Solutions for:

  • Dullness and uneven texture.
  • Pores.
  • Oiliness.

How to use:

  • Apply a thick, opaque, even layer to clean, dry skin.
  • Avoid eye area.
  • Do not apply to eyebrows, hairline, or lips.
  • Leave on for 25 minutes or until completely dry.
  • Gently peel off mask from outer edges.
  • Rinse off any residue with warm water.

20 mins later, it still wet in some areas, going to keep it on for another 20 mins.

Time to peel off this mask.

I love peeling this mask off, it’s so satisfying.

Halfway done.

All done, now time to wash off but first let’s look what came off.

Wow, look at those whiteheads and tiny hairs 😂. My skin does feel and look, clear, clean, smooth, and bright.

Final results. I love this mask, only one con tho you really have to put a lot on because if you don’t it hard to peel off; but other than that it really good peel off mask. It clings to the gunk and pulls it out. Leaving your face feeling amazing.

Here Sophie cat, with a big Lysol wipes.

Well that’s it for now.

Till next

Hello, everyone welcome back. Today, I will be talking about the Sephora VIB sale and what I’m thinking of buying and why.

I decided to blog about this since the Sephora sale starts today until November 15 and decided to share what I’m thinking on getting, and why I’m getting that product.

So grab your coffee, pull up a seat and let’s get started.

I love when Sephora has their sales around November and they have their holiday gifts sets out (which are amazing). So this would be a good time to shop for a Christmas presents for someone or treat yourself.

Shop Your discount code:

VIB Rouge: 20FORROUGE, VIB:20FORVIB, Beauty Insider: INSIDER15

So what in my basket:

  1. Too Faced Under The KIssletoe The Ultimate Liquified Lipstick Set. I love the Too Faced Melted Lipsticks. I have Chihuahua, Peony in the Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipstick. Too Faced Melted Matte: I have the colors, Holy Chic and Sell Out. I love the Too Faced Melted Lipsticks, they last long, great color selection, glides on easily, very creamy and have a nice finished look to them.

So with this set, you get Melted Matte in Drop Dead Red, Melted Latex in Hopeless Romantic, Melted Lipstick in Chihuahua, and Melted Lipstick in Chocolate Honey. All for C$32.00 that retails for C$59.00 value, to me that a steal and I need those lipsticks in my life.

2. Boscia Luminizing Pink Charcoal Mask C$90.00. The reason why I’m buying this, I have the Boscia Luminizing Black Charcoal Mask, which I love, I am doing a review of that product on Monday. So back to the pink charcoal mask, I figured since I love the black charcoal mask, I’m hoping I would really like the pink one. What it is, an innovative, limited-edition, a mineral-rich mask made with activated black charcoal that peels off to deliver powerfully detoxifying, purifying, and brightening effects; a colorful collaboration from Boscia and valley cruise press. That straight off Sephora. For Reviews, it got 3.8/5 stars. Not terrible but not good. I did read some of the reviews and some people love it and some have cons but that with any products.

3. Becca Apres Ski Glow Collection: Eye Lights Palette C$35.00, Original Price C$54.00. Reason for buying: I’m thinking on blogging wearing a full face using one brand, So doing a full face using only Becca products, Maybelline, Drugstore, etc. When I saw that this beautiful eye palette is for sale for $35 dollars, I had to pick it up. This palette includes seven shades, which have a mix of satin and shimmer. This palette got a 4.1/5 Stars. So I can’t wait to get my hands on it and test it out.

4. Boscia Tsubaki Jelly Ball Cleanser C$26.00. Reason for buying: honesty when I scroll the holiday gifts section and saw this, I was interested and curious by it. Plus with 4.8/5 stars, I wanted it more. What is it: a limited-edition, jelly-textured cleansing ball that hydrated and replenishes skin with Tsubaki oil. Basically, it a pink ball and you use it to clean your face.

5. Becca Blotting Perfector Setting Powder, Color: Translucent, C$46.00. Reason for buying: to be able to blog using a full face using Becca products and to try a different setting powder. On Sephora website, an oil-absorbing powder that mattifies skin and sets makeup for a long-lasting soft-focus look. These non-dying microfine powder controls shine without adding noticeable color or texture for sheer coverage in a matte finish. Imperfection is softened while the appearance of pores is minimized for a velvet-smooth finish. This product got 4.3/5 stars, and have wonderful reviews and handful of bad reviews but definitely worth to try it.

Well, that what in my cart and with my 20% off and free shipping it really a good deal. I know there was a lot more in my cart that would love to get but I did cut a lot out. I’m one of those people who go ooo, I want all the things and put it in my cart and when finish shopping and go to my cart and see my total and be like nope, nope, nope lol.

Covergirl Total Tease Mascara Review

Welcome back everyone, today I will be reviewing Covergirl Total Tease Mascara.

So grab your coffee, pull up a seat and let’s get started.

The face is all done, except for the mascara part.

Today’s look is brought to you by:

  • Fenty Beauty Foundation
  • Tarte Rainforest of the Sea 2
  • Becca under eye corrector
  • Becca Backlight primer
  • bare minerals invisible light
  • Marc Jacobs Coconut Mist
  • No bronzer or Blush today

On the CoverGirl website, it states, full length. Refined. Sexy, teased lashes! Use the lash teasing mascara comb for ease and control to tease even the tiniest corner lashes for a full, voluminous look. Dark, defined lashes that last all day!

Ok, I’m excited to try this mascara, so let’s get started.

The first thing, the brush is beyond weird. One side has a tease on the end and the other side is just a regular mascara. So after applying the mascara, I disliked the wand. I end up stabbing my eye when trying to coat my eyelash. I don’t know if anyone else had that problem when using it or is it just me problem lol. Bottom line the brush is awkward to use.

So after two coats and stabbing my eyes, I really disliked the formula for this mascara. I found the formula is messy, clumpy, and flaked when I was putting it on. It didn’t give me that full long lashes that I love and try to aim for. It did fan out my lashes but by the end of the day, I have black flakes under my eyes.

Bottom Line: I give this 1 out of 5 stars, and I would Not recommend this to a friend. Save your money for something better. So disappointed 😦

Well that it for today, my friends, until next time.

Makeup Sponge Set Review

Welcome back, sorry I haven’t posted in a week. I got the lovely flu, still have an annoying cough and the little sniffles but now that my head is clear, I can finally blog again.😂

So grab your coffee, pull up a set, and let’s get started.

So today I will be reviewing sears sponge set that I bought for $5.95 Can dollars.

In the package, you get 4 sponges. On the Sears website, 4pcs Pro Beauty Flawless Makeup Blender Foundation Puff Multi Shape Sponges. Blends easily work great with your foundations, concealers, etc. Use the bottom of it for the larger parts of your face and the pointy end for around your nose and eyes. Great for applying a cream, mineral, and liquid foundation along with cream, concealers and mineral blush. Remember to wet it to lightly damp before you dip it in makeup.

I will be using three out the four sponges. So after wetting them they definitely enlarge. So far the sponges remind me of the beauty blender, they not stiff, and they are bounciness.

For foundation, I will be using Fit Me in 110. I will put a small dap of foundation on the back of my hand and then be dipping my pink sponge in it and be place dots all over my face. Now time to bounce all over my face.

Ok, so I really like this sponge, it did the job perfectly, did soak up a bit of product but not much.

Close up on the face to see how well it applied the foundation to my face. I should have done one side with a brush and the other side with the sponge. Maybe next time.

Time to use the small sponge to apply my concealer. This sponge is amazing, the size is perfect for the under the eye. Blends flawless, and the point was perfect for the inner corner eye.

Taking the purple sponge, I will be using this to apply loose translucent powdered. Once again love the size for of this sponge and it blended so well but it did soak up a bit of the makeup.

Now time to finish the face.

The face is all done, so the sponge for the price they are amazing, they did hold water, so make sure you dry out all the water out before using or you end up water on your face, happened to me the second time I used them. They do soak up a bit of the product but not by much, so that no big deal for me. Other than those two cons, I love the sponges, the different sizes, they blend flawlessly, work with any makeup that I tried so far ( I have been using them all week to test them out) and the price is specular.

Sears Makeup Sponge Set gets 4.5/5 stars for me.

Well that all for now,

Take off the day with me!

Hello everyone, welcome back.

Today I will be talking about taking off my makeup routine.

So grab your coffee, pull up a seat and let’s get started.

Today is not just any makeup look, it’s my scarecrow makeup.

I won’t be changing any of my regular routine because I know my routine can take it off with no problem.

First, I will be using the Clinique take the day off.

On the Clinique website, Take the day off cleansing balm is a lightweight makeup remover quickly dissolves tenacious eye and face makeups, sunscreens. Transforms from a solid balm into a silky oil upon application. Cleans thoroughly, rinses off completely.

This stuff is amazing and melts the makeup off with no problem.

Usually, I only need a small amount but where I’m wearing tons of makeup, I’m going to use more than I usually do.

See what I mean, melt the makeup right off. Now time to wash it off, using warm water.

So beautiful lol now time to clean the face, using the Clinique liquid facial cleanser. On the website, liquid facial soap, our guiding dermatologists believe in simple, effective cleansing: soap and water. Soft, non-drying lather cleans gently, rinses easily.

I love this cleanser, it does the job unbelievably well.

So much better. Now time to use the toner. I will be using Clinique clarifying lotion. P.s I’m not sponsored by Clinique, I just really love their skin care. I dislike their makeup line but their skin care is amazing.

On the website, clarifying lotion, dermatologist – developed formula helps reveal fresher skin. Sweeps away dulling flakes and excess oil so moisturizer can do its job better.

Can’t believe there was still makeup left.

Now time to lip scrub those lips. I will be using Fresh sugar face polish. I know it, not lip scrub, I ran out and debating what to get or try.

On the fresh website, sugar face polish with nourishing brown sugar is an innovative formula for all skin types that exfoliates and hydrates the skin, instantly revealing a softer, smoother, more radiant complexion.

So I will be scrubbing that in my lips and then wiping it off, using a wet cloth.

Now time to moisturizer, I really love this moisturizer for night time, I’m almost out and I’m debating on buying it.

Tatcha, the water cream, on the website, an oil-free, anti-aging water cream that releases a burst of skin-improving Japanese nutrients, powerful botanicals, and optimal hydration for poreless-looking skin.

Love this moisturizer for my lips. Jersey Shore, lavender moisture rich hydrating balm.

Can’t forget the eyes. I will be using Lancome Visionnaire Yeux Eye on correction.

There you have it.

How do you take your makeup off?

Till next time,

Becca Backlight VS First Light primers

Hello everyone, welcome back 🙂

Today I will be doing versus. I decided to do the backlight primer VS first light primer. Now I know both offers different benefits but what one offers better looks or last longer, and makes the makeup looks amazing.

So grab your coffee, pull up a seat and let’s get to it.

Picture of the makeup that I will be using today.

Ok, my eyes are done. For today’s eye look, I used Becca posocco pop and Tarte rainforest of the sea. Under eye, Becca under eye corrector. Now time for primers, I will be using the first light on my right side of myself.

On the Becca website, first light priming filter instant complexion refresh is a skin-awakening primer that instantly erases the signs of a bad face day to leave the complexion fresh, awake and hydrated. A wake up call for the skin, First Light brightens lackluster and dull skin and instantly refreshes the complexion. Skin goes from dull, dry and fatigues to hydrated, healthy and awake.

I love this primer, if you haven’t noticed, I use it pretty much everyday. The primer definitely brightens my skin and hydrated my skin.

For the left side I will be using the backlight primer.

On the Becca website, Backlight priming filter creates a canvas for your makeup, extending its wear from day to night. Backlighting acts as an instant filter, creating a diffused, soft-focused radiance that allows your complexion to catch light for a glowing look.

I love this primer for when I want that dewy look .

Here what they look like side by side. Can notice a big difference between the two.

On my right side, I can noticed a brightness to my skins, hydrated, and my laugh lines are diminished.

I found I can see and feel the difference between the two sides already. The first light feels tacky and the backlight feels moisturizer. Also with the backlight, my left side of my face looks dewy, it has this glow to it.

Now to get my face on.

Foundation: Fenty Beauty, shade 160

Concealer: Becca Aqua luminous

Setting powder: BareMinerals invisible light, Marc Jacobs coconut spray

Bronzer and Blush: Quo sunny days and PF butter blush in plum rose

Mascara: L’oreal lash paradise

Lipstick: Tarte homeslice

Finally look. So I will update the rest of day on how each side look.

Around 4 o’clock, both side look a beautiful. Also note the lipstick is still the same, I did not touch up on it either. Love this lipstick, thank you Boxycharm.

Around 7pm, both sides are holding up great.

Last picture before I take off my makeup. Both sides still looks stunning. Both hold the makeup unbelievable well. I can’t decide which primers I love more. I do use the first light more but if I want that dewy, glow look I would use the backlight.

What primer do you use the most?

Talk to you later,

Monday is mask day!

Hello everyone,

if you can’t tell by the title about what I’m going to be talking about, then I will tell you. Today is mask day. Every Monday, I always do face mask. I love doing the mask on a Monday, to kinda prepare my skin for the week and weekend.

For the longest time, I loved using GlamGlow Super-Mud Clearing Treatment but when I ran out three weeks ago, I knew I needed a refill but I couldn’t afford the 90 dollars price tag lol 😂. So instead I decide to try the Mary Kay Deep-Cleaning Charcoal Mask.

The first thing I noticed about this mask, how similar it is to the GlamGlow. So I really joyed using this mask.

Don’t mind my nails, doing that today too, sad part they didn’t even last one day. Tried the new sally nail polish. Might do a post about that. Ok, back to the topic at hand. Mary Kay Charcoal mask, on the website, this triple-action mask deeply cleanses skin, immediately reduces shine and features a complex of botanical extracts to help clear the way to beautiful skin. The mask is formulated with activated charcoal, an ingredient so powerful, it can bind up to double its weight in pore-clogging impurities. Think of it like a powerful magnet withdrawing dirt and debris from deep within pores. Plus, mineral clay ingredients, kaolin and bentonite, known to help boost the mask’s absorbency. You’ll love how the mask soaks up excess oil to deliver a smooth, matte appearance. If you suffer from problem skin, you may have experienced dark spots and lingering discolouration. This multitasking mask was formulated to help with that too! Clear Proof® Deep-Cleansing Charcoal Mask contains honeysuckle and navy bean extracts shown to target the appearance of skin discolouration. So let’s put this to the tested.

Ok, first let’s clean the face, after a clean face, taking a small amount of the product and apply that all over the face.

Now we wait for 10-20 mins. Coffee break time.

Sophie my new kitten decided she would love to photobomb me lol.

20 mins later. So it completely dried on my face, I can see some white spots, and dark spots. Let’s zoom in, look at that nose lol.

Now to wash off this mask.



Here the finished look, my skin feels unbelievable smooth and looks incredible. This mask is unquestionably a 5 out of 5 stars for me.

So I’m thinking every couple of weeks I may try a different mask on mondays and tested them out. What do you think? I may even do mask vs mask too.

Well that all for now.

L’oreal Lash Paradise vs Younique Epic Mascara

Welcome back, my friends.

Today I will be doing a comparison between two different mascara, L’oreal lash paradise and Younique epic mascara.

Let’s talk about lash paradise mascara. On the L’oreal website,, this mascara should provide voluptuous volume & length. Using a soft wavy bristle brush to holds maximum formula for a dramatic volumizing charge. 200+ bristles catch every lash for a full fringe effect. Smooth glide formula provides silky volume in one coat. Lashes are feathery soft to the touch. Women agreed: 91% saw intense & volumized lashes and 87% saw more beautiful lashes. +98% lengthening effect.

That what it say for word to word on the website. Now do I believe them, yes, yes I do. I definitely saw the works of this mascara and I love this mascara. Now cost of this mascara, at walmart, the cost is $10.96 Can dollars, that without tax.

It not a good close up of my eyes but oh well, next couple of pictures will be lol 😂

So let’s talk about Younique epic mascara. On the Younique website, it’s states, for a look as timeless as you are. Moodstruck Epic Mascara is a multi-effect wonder, adding proven volume, length, and clump-free curl. The brush features intermingling high and low density bristles that grip lashes at their root, maximizing definition and volume, and the tapered tip allows for defining and thickening even your tiniest, hard-to-reach lashes with precision and control. This easily buildable formula also acts as the perfect first step for our Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes+ for the most extreme eyelashes ever.

I only used this once and I was really impressed by it. Cost: $39.85 Can dollars, that with tax and shipping. So L’oreal definitely is the cheaper of the two but is it better. Let’s see.

Picture of me wearing the epic mascara.

So today, I decided let’s have a face off, L’oreal VS Younique. One eye will have one mascara and the other eye will have the other mascara and I will do a wear test and take pictures through out the day.

My left eye will wear the L’oreal lash paradise mascara.

My right eye will wear the Younique epic mascara.

One coat of the Younique epic mascara.

One coat of the L’oreal lash paradise mascara.

Here a picture of one coat for both mascara. Now time to add a second coat.

Second coat of the Younique epic mascara.

Second coat of L’oreal lash paradise

Picture of the second coat.

Finished look. Time:11:30am

Foundation: Fenty beauty

Eyeshadows: Jacklyn Hill palette

Primer: Becca first light filter face

Under eye: Becca eye corrector

Concealer: Maybelline fit me

Blush: PF butter blush, plum rose

Brozer: PF butter bonzer

Setting powered and mist: BareMinerals invisible light, Marc Jacobs coconut spray

Lipstick: NYX Lingerie

Eyebrows: Mac

Update on the mascaras, time: 2 pm. Both mascaras are holding up great, no flakiness, or smudging.

Update number 2, time: 6 clock pm. You can’t tell but under the left eye, L’oreal lash paradise, has a small fall out, nothing to major. Under the right eye, Younique, a little bit of smudging happen but once again no big deal.

So far both eyes looks great, looks the same, no big difference that I can tell.

The last update. Time: 8 clock pm. Both eyes have a little fall out and a bit of smudging going on but nothing to serious. Both look great. But if I have to go with a winner L’Oréal lash paradise, just for the sheer fact on how cheap it is, did amazing job, still give me those long lashes and wear long. I’m not saying Younique is bad mascara, it did the same job but where I can spend 11 dollars compare to 40 dollars and still get the same effects. I will go with the cheaper version lol 😂 This mom has a makeup budget and where I can get the same amazing look for cheaper. I will buy the cheaper version.

Well that all for now, my friends.

What did you think of the mascaras? What one you think did better job?

Next post hopefully will be boxycharm unboxing 🙂

Baby pouch food, and why I won’t use them.

One day, my mother in law came over from the grocery store and was like look what I brought for Athena. She brought her those food pouches. I know her heart was in the right place, she just wanted to buy something for Athena but I was not giving Athena any of those pouches. I told her thank you but you would have to return them.

Food pouches are on the rage right now because they are conveniently, no mess, easy for families on the go, do not require refrigeration, no need to microwave, and allow kids get some fruits and vegetables.

I’m not judging any parents who do use those pouches for their kids. Like I always say, you do, you and what makes your family happy. It’s none of my business.

Why would I not let Athena have them?

I have multiple reasons.

  1. I don’t trust them. Big number reason, I don’t trust them one bit. You can’t see inside, for all you know it full of mould or bugs. Don’t believe it, tons of videos of parents cutting in to those pouches and finding stuff in them. Plus they add more sugar and calories in to them.
  2. Added sugar and calories. The pouches has higher sugar and calories compared to the real fruit and vegetables. They often lack fibre, which will make you feel full and help regulate your digested track. So with lower fibre and higher sugar, you children will eat more to get that full factor which could cause obesity.
  3. Your child won’t learn how to properly eat. When feeding them the food pouches they don’t have to chew, they only have to suck the food out of the package.
  4. When the food is hidden in a pouch, your child will miss out on what the food looks like, the smell of the food, the touch and feel of the food.
  5. Children who only consume pouches or purred foods, well become picky eaters when it comes time to eat solid foods.
  6. Pouches are bad for the environment. The packaging doesn’t break down, can’t be reused or recycled, so it’s ends up in the landfill.
  7. Pouches are expensive, 2 dollars for one pouch compare to actual buying the fruits and vegetables, making the baby food and freezing tons of food that will last for over a month. Hmm 🤔 you do the math.

Well that just my thoughts on food pouches.

What do you think about the baby food pouches?

Talk to you later, friends.
