Hello again!

blog hello

It has been a hot minute since I have posted on my blog! As many of you know, I took a break from blogging in March to focus on my final exams for my last semester of law school. And then I had to study for and write the Bar exams this summer. But long story short – I finally have time to get back to posting on my blog! Over the course of […]

OFRA Long Lasting Liquid Lipsticks [Review]

OFRA Liquid Lipsticks

I know for a fact that my Mom will be thrilled that I’m writing this post. Ever since I started getting into makeup in my late teens, my Mom would harass me to “put some colour on your lips!”. My Mom is a typical French Canadian woman who does not leave the house without her red lipstick on. And I love that about her! But it just wasn’t me. I would do my eye makeup but I […]

Pacifica Quinoa Sensitive Super Gentle Face Wash [Review]

Pacifica Quinoa Super Gentle Face Wash

In this post, I review the Pacifica Quinoa Sensitive Super Gentle Face Wash. Pacifica is a beauty company based in the United States. They pretty much have all the beauty-related products you could need including skincare, makeup, haircare, body products and perfume. But what’s even better is that they are completely cruelty-free and 100% vegan!   Why do I love this face wash? I have combination skin – the bridge of my nose can get fairly oily but […]

Does e.l.f. Offer International Shipping?

e.l.f. international shipping

Since many beauty bloggers and youtubers are based in the United States, many of them seem to assume that the brands they mention are easily accessible to their readers and viewers. As a result, bloggers and youtubers will often (unknowingly) recommend products from brands that do not offer international shipping. – My goal is to make this blog as accessible as possible, for as many people as possible, regardless of where you are located in the world –  […]

7 Fun Ideas for Galentine’s Day

Galentine's Day

Galentine’s Day? The first time I texted my bestie to talk about Galentine’s Day, she simply assumed that I had made a typo and truly meant Valentine’s Day. To be fair, I had never heard of Galentine’s Day until very recently. After Googling the term to find out where it came from, I discovered that it was coined by the character Leslie Knope (played by Amy Poehler) in Parks and Recreation back in 2010! For those of […]

e.l.f. foundation and brush

In this post, I review the Flawless Finish Foundation and Foundation Blurring Brush from e.l.f. If you are just starting out in your transition to cruelty-free beauty products, e.l.f. Cosmetics is a great brand to start with. [My first cruelty-free order was actually from e.l.f.!] There are several reasons for which e.l.f. is a good brand for cruelty-free newbies. First of all, e.l.f. products are very affordable and, in North America, e.l.f. products are […]

The First Step to Going Cruelty-Free

Going Cruelty-Free

  So you’re thinking of going cruelty-free?  Transitioning to cruelty-free beauty products can feel overwhelming at first. Where do you start? How do you know which brands are cruelty-free? What are the differences between the various cruelty-free logos? I had so many questions when I decided to switch to cruelty-free products. I didn’t know where to start and I had no one to guide me. So, I did a lot of research. A LOT. […]
