Black Friday Haul

HELLO! I’m here! I’m alive! Some things:

1. I’m back from Seoul, pictures coming soon!

2. Winter is… coming here

3. Black Friday Sephora Haul…. oops.

Sephora Haul

Philosophy Purity Made Simple Cleanser – After using a cleansing oil (currently using Boscia Makeup-Breakup Cool Cleansing Oil, it’s REALLY good), Purity gently cleanses and leaves your face feeling squeaky clean.

First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream & Face Cleanser – Heard great reviews about this brand and was interested in trying it out!

Formula X “Chaotic” & “Hypnotize” – This nail polish seems to get nothing but rave reviews, obviously needed to see what the hype was about. For science!

NEST Fragrances roller ball trio in “Indigo”, “Dahlia & Vines”, and “Midnight Fleur” – I own Indigo & Midnight Fleur, they’re 2 of my current favourite fragrances and now I have them in a travel-size roller ball so that I can touch up during the day. What if you’ve got dinner and/or drinks after work? Freshening up your scent is a nice little pick me up after an exhausting day. Makes you feel a little bit more “put together” when you actually feel tired and shambles.

That’s all. Later gators. As mentioned above, Seoul pictures coming soon + maybe the rest of my Australia pictures, right?



I’M BACK! + Current Obsessions

OMYGOODNESS HELLLOOOOOO! ! ! !! ! ! !!!! After taking an unintended hiatus from blogging (because winter ruins everything, you guys). I’m back and resolving to maintain a somewhat regular writing schedule! It’s like I’ve come out of hibernation after a long winter and it feels GREAT.

Let’s start things off with: THINGS I’M CURRENTLY OBSESSED WITH.

Sephora’s VIB 15% off sale is SO dangeroux but SO wondrous. I’m telling you, these goodies in the picture below are ACE. I’m not one for writing product reviews because there are PLENTY of reviews ‘on-the-line’ for these, so all I’ll say is that they’re mucho fantastic and worth the splurge. Tarte Amazonian Clay Airbrush Foundation, Tarte Airbuki Brush, NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer, Too-Faced Primed & Poreless Pressed Powder [Insert rhetorical question here, like what did you get at the VIB sale? I know you won’t leave a comment, but maybe one of you will humour me.]

Ok that’s all. It’s nice to be back! :)


Urban Decay: 2, Marie: 0

WOOHOO! My Urban Decay Naked 2 palette arrived in the mail yesterday. Despite it being released at the beginning of December, it wasn’t available for pre-order on Sephora until after Christmas and Urban Decay doesn’t ship to Canada :| Since the palette won’t be in Sephora stores until January 26th (ummm a THURSDAY aka a WORK DAY), I didn’t want to take any chances because this thing is likely going to be sold out the day it arrives. In other words, if I didn’t get it now, it probably won’t be in stock again until NEXT January! Just when I thought I’d be done with buying neutral shadows after procuring the original Naked Palette…. gah! 

Also got some other skincare stuff this week, perhaps I’ll post a haul. I really have no excuse for the lack of regular posts this week, just feeling overall lazy. So happy mini-friday! Hang in there, REAL Friday is almost here…
