Hard Candy | Glamoflauge Heavy Duty Concealer with Concealer Pencil (Review)

Image
 Product Summary: A heavy duty, multi-use concealer that provides ultimate coverage. Formula blends flawlessly into skin, hides everything from dark circles and blemishes to tattoos. Bought this concealer in Ultra Light 487. Costs $6.  ***Cruelty free ❤*** It's no surprise that I've got some dark circles and am in need of a heavy duty concealer, it also doesn't help that my sleep schedule is all over the place. They weren't joking when they said it's heavy duty. It is extremely thick and sticky. While I do want some coverage for my under eyes I don't like having a ton of product and caking on makeup in an attempt to cover up my dark undereye circles. I prefer having very light face makeup just because I don't have problematic skin. I only have certain areas that I want to cover up and conceal.  I got this concealer in ultra light but this color once blended washes m out. There is barely any pigmentation in it. This concealer is essentially just white. I'

Product Summary: A water-based serum that gives skin its daily dose of moisture for soft, smooth, youthful-looking skin. Formulated with skin renewing ingredients like hyaluronic acid, collagen and peptides, this serum helps hydrate and improve the overall appearance of skin. Its lightweight gel texture locks in moisture for a healthy, youthful looking complexion. Costs $38.  I ended up receiving this item in a Ipsy glam bag which is a monthly beauty subscription service where you get 5 items from sample to full size for around 20$ Canadian.

During summer, I have very oily skin where I need to use cleansers that help maintain and control oil production and shine. However, during winter I am the complete opposite. My skin becomes extremely dry tot he point where it flakes in certain areas. Fortunately, I only have dry skin in my t-zone; middle of my forehead, between my brows, around the nose and cente

 Product summary: Treat beauty's marshmallow cream jumbo lip scrub exfoliates lips smooth, prepping them for your favourite lip color or balm. A blend of exfoliating fair trade sugar and moisturizing coconut oil, this lip scrub is sure to leave your lips enticingly soft and satisfy your sweet tooth at the same time. It's really easy to use, just smooth it on like you would a lip balm and let the pure sugarcane smooth away all the roughness. Costs around $13.99.  I ended up receiving this item in a Ipsy glam bag which is a monthly beauty subscription service where you get 5 items from sample to full size for around 20$ Canadian. Click  here to check them out. ***Cruelty free ❤*** I love the concept of a lip scrub in a tube/lipstick format since it avoids bacteria being introduced in comparison to regular lip scrubs where you dig your fingers into the product. No matter how well I wash my hands I still don't like the idea of digging my fingers into product. That is essentiall

Succubus Blues (Georgina Kincaid #1) By: Richelle Mead (Book Review)

Image
 ***This review will contain spoilers**** Summary: When it comes to jobs in hell, being a succubus seems pretty glamorous. A girl can be anything she wants, the wardrobe is killer, and mortal men will do anything just for a touch. Granted, they often pay with their souls, but why get technical? But Seattle succubus Georgina Kincaid's life is far less exotic. At least there's her day job at a local bookstore--free books; all the white chocolate mochas she can drink; and easy access to bestselling, sexy writer, Seth Mortensen, aka He Whom She Would Give Anything to Touch but Can't. But dreaming about Seth will have to wait. Something wicked is at work in Seattle's demon underground. And for once, all of her hot charms and drop-dead one-liners won't help because Georgina's about to discover there are some creatures out there that both heaven and hell want to deny. . .  You would think with the title and the protagonist being a succubus that there would be a shit to
