Illamasqua Once Collection

Its no secret that I am OBSESSED with the makeup artists over at Illmasqua and their promo images! Sadly the brand has pulled out of Canada and the United States both from Sephora and The Bay. Thankfully, at least for us Canadians who are used to astronomical (and by that I mean NOT free) shipping, they do ship internationally at!

The collection includes Nail Varnish in Melange: a gorgeous antique teal colour:

A relaunch of Powder Blusher in Naked Rose. 

Sheer Lip Glosses in Exquisite, a pearly pink shade:

And relaunched Opulent, an iridescent beige:

Three new cream eye shadows – Vintage Metallix. Creamy in texture, they are shimmer finish products that dry to a smudge-resistant and long-lasting result. 

The first shade is Bibelot, a golden teal colour.

The second is Embellish, a rich cocoa shade.

The third and final shade of the range is Courtier, a dusky rose product.

FAB & FREE Murale Gift With Purchase!

I possibly went a little crazy at Murale on Chanel and thus got the big gift with purchase (requiring a $125 purchase). Thought I would share it with you all. Its actually the best GWP I think I have ever gotten!

The Face Shop - Sneak Peek In Store & Mini Haul!

I was very excited to check out the Face Shop while in Toronto. I made sure to head to Eaton Centre (a 4 minute walk from my hotel) and scope out the place. I KNEW I wanted to try some face masks, but I had NO idea what they had, or the price points. I must say, I left the store more confused than I entered. They have $5 mascaras and $32 mascaras. $4 lip product and $25 lip products. What is the difference between them? NO CLUE. Why is a range both have drugstore AND luxury pricing in the same line? Again, no idea. But I did snap tons of pictures. Sorry for the crappy phone pics.

Make sure you scroll to the bottom to see my haul!

In the end I really liked the lip liners (and at $4 and all makeup being b1g1 half price it was steal!) and thought I would try a couple out. They are double ended with a lipstick brush on one end and a mechanical liner on the other.

And I got these 5 face masks. I was going to try one of each of them (so cheap at $2 each) but the sales associate said if I had sensitive skin to only try these five! At least she was honest!
