Volumising Skincare from Indeed Labs Fillume

Indeed Labs recently introduced two new products to their skincare range. The Fillume Volumising Serum ($29.99 CAD) and Fillume Volumising Moisturiser ($24.99 CAD) are formulated to improve the visible signs of aging in your skin. They mostly focus on addressing the loss of facial volume we experience as we age and work to plump, firm, and smooth skin to counteract these aging effect. I absolutely love Indeed Labs packaging. White with black/charcoal lettering and a colour accent that colour codes the line the product belongs

Pampering and Rejuvinating at Home with Indeed Labs Hydraluron, Exfoliator, and Nanoblur

Sponsored I'm not the kind of person who treats herself to a day at the spa. I think I've probably only had about 2 facials in my entire life. (OK maybe I need to work on having OTHER people in my life that treat me to a day at the spa ;P). Anyways, I guess you could say I'm a bit of a DIYer when it comes to pampering treatments. I enjoy relaxing in the comfort of my own home, with my extensive skin care routines, and a nice facial mask. It just isn't practical for me to arrange childcare and travel to treat my skin right, when I

Stila CC Color Correction Cream, Deep Burgundy Smudge Stick, Scarlet Vinyl Stay All Day Vinyl Lip Gloss | Photos, Swatches, Review

Stila is a brand I have had very limited experiences with. Actually I think the only product I had ever tried from them was the Stila Sparkle Waterproof Liner in Rock Candy 3 years ago. Wow how has three years passed since then! I was very excited to have a sampling of Stila products to try out. Especially the Stila Smudge Stick Waterproof Eye Liner ($26 CAD) in Deep Burgundy. I have been wanting to try these raved about liners forever. Every time I see someone wearing Mint Julep my heart sets a flutter. I really don't know how

Make Up For Ever HD Primer Review 1

Make Up For Ever HD Microperfecting Primer Shade #0 Neutral | Photos, Swatches, Review

While the Make Up For Ever HD Microperfecting Primer ($39 CAD/30ml) is certainly not a new product it is new to me. I had avoided ever trying it as I had mistakenly assumed it would have the same thick, heavy silicone gel feel of other silicone based primers. I couldn't have been more wrong. The HD Microperfecting Primer has a very fluid, light texture. Almost like a light lotion. It doesn't have the silicone feel that I dislike yet it still offers the soft blurring effect and smoothed surface to the skin to ease foundation

Makeup Wars | My Favourite Highlighters and Illuminating Products

This week the Makeup Wars members are sharing our favourite illuminating products. This is probably one of my favourite cosmetics categories for two reasons. Firstly I have very dry, dull skin and I need a lot of assistance in the glow department. Secondly I am very picky when it comes to products in this category so finding the right product is always a struggle for me. I guess I kind of enjoy the challenge and the subsequent joy and satisfaction of finding a product that meets my expectations. Why am I so picky? Well when it

Top Ten Primers

Beauty Blogger Top Ten Tuesday | Top 10 Primers

This week the Beauty Blogger Top Ten team is focusing on primers. I don't think I recall a time when there has been such an onslaught of new primer releases. Most of these being blurring/pore refining primers. I thought I would share with you ten that, with the exception of my professional kit staple Benefit POREfessional, are all new to the market. I have divided them into categories to make things a little more coherent.

LOreal Pore Vanisher2

L’Oreal Youth Code Texture Perfector Pore Vanisher Review and Giveaway

When we think of young, beautiful skin we think of the smooth, poreless skin of children. I look at my kids faces and think, wow, my skin used to look that plump, smooth, and youthful and I didn't even know what a blessing it was. When we put our foundation on in the morning we are not doing so only in the hopes of covering imperfection but trying to mimic this smoothness. In order to achieve this refined, smooth look we need to start before our makeup. Not only in terms of skincare but also prepping the skin with a product like
