too faced the chocolate shop holiday 2016

A few days ago I went to my first Christmas Party of the season-- and I am so excited that we have a whole month before the big day to get together with friends, family, and loved ones. That also means a whole month of CHRISTMAS COVERAGE! Holiday sets, gift guides, stocking stuffers, you name it. Too Faced was kind enough to send me a whole bunch of their Christmas in New York collection to share with you. Now, I will be doing a big overview video over on my channel soon (complete with a giveaway, so go and subscribe now!), but I wanted to go into more detail on some of the palettes with swatches and all of that good stuff. Today I am here with the The Chocolate Shop. 

Burt's Bees Lipstick | Tulip Tide, Iced Iris, Magenta Rush

burts bees lipstick tulip tide iced iris magenta rush swatch review

Yesterday I posted about the Burt's Bees Lip Crayons, and today I am here with a review on their lipsticks! Originally I was planning on doing them as one big review, but I figured it was better to split them up into two seperate posts so I could go into a bit more detail about the formulas. Keep reading for lip swatches and my thoughts on the formula!

burts bees lip crayon review

Recently I was sent some lip products from Burt's Bees. I love they offer affordable, drugstore products that are nourishing and pigmented. As I kid I knew them for their standard lip balms, but recently they have expanded their offerings to include an array of coloured lip products. Today I am here with some of their bolder lip crayons!

MAC Strobe Cream | Silverlight

MAC strobe cream silverlight

About 10 years ago I was at a Me to We event and we left with a swag bag (probably the first big, fancy event swag bag I had ever received) containing a whole bunch of stuff, including a MAC strobe cream, a MAC eyeshadow duo and a MAC lipgloss in this really unflattering pale pink. I was so in love with everything, my first big MAC haul! When an email about the new MAC in the Spotlight collection landed in my inbox, I couldn't help but think back to that swag bag. Today I am here with a review of their new strobe cream in "Silverlight"

Introduction to Chorus Skin Care | Treat, Mask, Purify

Friday 18 November 2016


One of my favourite things about being a beauty blogger is getting the chance to tryout new products and brands. I always get so excited when I see a new brand has reached out to me offering a chance to try them out. This opportunity was all the more exciting because the brand-- Chorus Supernatural-- is Canadian! They are based in beautiful BC. So, let's get into the review!

Late last month I had the opportunity to head up to Richmond Hill and check out the recently revamped Hillcrest Mall. Hillcrest sent a car to pick me up and even let me bring a friend along for the fun! Today I am going to share some of the neat blogger experiences I had while I was there, and of course what I ended up buying!

anastasia beverly hills amster by mario palette review

"Oh, I don't need, no those colours are too dark... I don't really reach for jewel tones... Alanna you don't need another limited edition don't even know who Mario IS" I told myself. Until I ended up at my local Sephora armed with a $30 gift card... yup. I swatched this palette, fell in love and paid up. Keep reading for swatches, my full review, and a look I put together.

After Party Skin Care | Halloween Edition

Tuesday 1 November 2016

post party skin care

This weekend I caked more makeup on my face than I have in a while in my pursuit of looking just like my latest obsession: The Snapchat Deer Filter. My costume was so good that the next morning my boyfriend's best friend texted me "I thought your snapchat deer was just a Snapchat filter until I saw your Insta story". Only downside? Layers of foundation, powder and face paint left my skin asking for some TLC the next morning.  Today I am sharing with you some of my favourite products for your post-party face (plus a little giveaway to help you along!).
