The Perfect Gifts List 2016

December 05, 2016


I would LOVE to receive any and all of these gifts this holiday season. Yes, I bought them all for myself - There's a lot of 'to me, from me' under the tree this year! The 'perfect gift' starts with great wrapping and a cute gift tag. I purchased these eighty seventh ST. gift tags at Holt Renfrew in Toronto. It's an all-in-one holidays tag. I keep my wrapping simple - red, white, black and gold (no cartoon Christmas characters). 



If you've been living under a rock, you probably haven't heard of Farsáli Rose Gold Elixir. This product is up there with Sugarbearhair and (well) any of the multitude of detox teas taking over Instagram. It's worth its weight in gold! At first I was skeptical, but this beauty oil has forever changed my makeup routine and enhanced my look dramatically. I apply my foundation with a brush. Then I apply 'many' drops of the elixir to my damp beautyblender and gently blend my foundation for perfect coverage. I use the same beautyblender (and Farsáli Rose Gold Elixir) to blend my concealer, under eye brightener and cream-to-powder highlighter. This elixir is amazing. The 15 ml bottle retails for $35 and 30 ml for $54. WORTH THE MONEY!



Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit-Sureal Light limited edition palette is universally flattering. The palette includes a powder, bronzer, two blushes, and highlighter - this four-in-one palette is compact considering the product load. I love these shades. This product has everything you need to brighten, contour, highlight and finish your look. This palette retails for $80 and the oh so soft Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit Brush for $46. This dual-ended brush is the perfect match to the palette. 



For the wine lover in your life - this mug is f**king awesome! Funny Guy Mugs has a great selection of witty mugs for just about any person. I don't drink coffee, but I definitely get excited at 'wine time'. I also purchased a tumbler that says 'shh.. there's wine in here'. I know many people who would love a Funny Guy Mugs tumbler - I bought three! These mugs retail for $14.99.



I couldn't survive without tea and am always promoting its consumption. I love green tea, green blends and white tea. Paired with a tea defuser, this Feelin' Good Wellness Tea Sampler from Teavana is the perfect gift for the 'health conscious'. Recover, Rev Up, Serenity, and Defense are all yummy teas that promote a healthy body. This tea sampler retails for $30.



Another Instagram sensation - HiSmile. This teeth whitening kit is different from others, because it doesn't contain peroxide and comes with a mouth tray and LED light for optimal results. The solution is a 'baking soda' gel form, minimizing tooth sensitivity. While this product has received harsh criticism, bloggers are loving this kit. Just ten minutes a day for a week and you should see big results. HiSmile also has a yummy Coconut Whitening Mouthwash - the box contains five 30 ml tubes, containing the same sodium bicarbonate blend (baking soda). Just another tasty step in your whitening routine. The whitening kit retails for $59.99 and mouthwash for $29.99. It ships from Australia, so consider shipping times before purchasing.

Highlighting Powder

October 05, 2016
Six months ago, I was anti-sparkle, but since discovering the benefits of highlighting my face, I'm officially addicted. My highlighting products are growing faster than anything else in my CosmoCube (best makeup organizer).

After applying foundation, I apply Benefit Watt's Up! Cream-to-Powder Highlighter down the bridge of my nose, on my cheekbones, cupid's bow (to make your lips appear bigger) and blend with a damp beautyblender and a little Farsali Rose Gold Elixir. Then I apply setting powder, blush, maybe bronzer and all-over illuminating powder. All those powders on top of the Watt's Up! Cream-to-Powder Highlighter will lessen the illuminating effect and using a damp (oily) sponge to apply more is a no-no for me (I'm oily enough and gotta hold back on the Elixir). In enters my new favorite cosmetic - highlighting 'powder'. 

Of course, I opted for my favorite cosmetic brand! The Bobbi Brown Highlighting Powder in Pink Glow is perfect for a little extra light-reflective glow. The pink highlights are nice on pale skin tones and the effect is subtle (if applied lightly). I use the Sephora Pro Fan Brush #65 to little dust the highlighter on my check bones. For more precise application on my nose and cupid's bow, I use the Bobbi Brown Eye Sweep brush - it's more dense and allows you to apply more product. If you want a high-impact glow, apply a little Farsali Rose Gold Elixir to your cheekbones, bridge of your nose and cupids bow, then lightly apply Bobbi Brown Highlighting Powder - super glow! I LOVE this highlighting powder.

Beauty's Besties

September 26, 2016
I already have a blotterazzi and many beauty blenders, but I couldn't resist the beautyblender + Too Faced holiday kit. I'm like a deer in headlights when it comes to light pink! I love this set, especially the mini highlighting compact by Too Faced.

I'm lovin' the light pink original beautyblender. Good to know - wash your beautyblender prior to the first use and after each makeup application, and always wet your beautyblender before applying makeup - I wet my beautyblender in water, squeeze out excess water and then apply a few drops of oil (Farsali Rose Gold Elixir is amazing).

The blotterazzi compact is super cute and the teardrop shaped makeup sponges are more subtle than the original bright fuchsia blotterazzi. The blotterazzi is a reusable oil absorbing sponge. There are two pink sponges inside the plastic mirrored compact. The water drop shaped compact has a vent at the back and a clear, hygienic separator to keep the sponges fresh. The unique shape (a flat version of the beautyblender) allows you to blot the contours of your face with ease while removing excess oil. 

The Too Faced Candlelight Glow highlighting powder duo comes in a small custom-designed compact. The Rosy Glow highlighting powder diffuses light, creating a subtle glow. Apply to your cheekbones, nose and brow line for a lit-from-within look. This mini Candlelight Glow compact is perfect for on-the-go touchups and travel.
