Favourites Lately: end 2016

This is not my “best of” list for 2016 yet – it’s simply my final quarterly favourites for the year. I’ll be posting my full favourites list for 2016 in January!  Here’s what I’ve been enjoying from October to December:

Remember that for 2 of the past 3 months, I was essentially in makeup jail doing project Pan!


• MAC Lightful Softening lotion – surprised that I like this as much as I do. It’s pricey but it’s an effective toner with a citrusy scent. I’m unsure about the brightening effects after using it for a month. and I do love the holographic bottle!

• DHC Deep Cleansing Oil – I’ll be doing a detailed review on this but this is effective and gentle. and I have a limited edition Alice in Wonderland bottle, which makes it even better!

• Farmacy New Day gentle exfoliating Grains – I got this travel size from Cat, who raves about this product and the Farmcy brand in general. This is my first ever Farmacy product and oh my goodness – the hype is real!

It’s a powder that you simply mix with water to make a paste. This leaves my skin feeling so soft and clarified, and has a slight tightening effect. I’m definitely buying the full size of this when I run out! The full size isn’t even all that expensive at C$40 for 100g – that’s a lot of product.

• MAC studio moisture cream – review to come!

• Physician’s Formula Anti Aging Laser Resurfacing Serum – this is the second bottle I have of this and if I find it again, I’ll be sure to buy more. This makes my skin so smooth and radiant, and it’s so affordable!

• The Lip Scrub by Sara Happ in Clementine – I got this as a present from a friend and it smells and tastes just like a juicy clementine! since the weather has gotten colder and drier, my poor lips have been suffering. I’ve been using this scrub about 3 times a week, in the mornings. aside from the sugar particles, it has oils in it that helps to moisturize my lips. prior to this lip scrub, I had only ever used the lush ones – this one has larger sugar granules compared to the LUSH.

• H&M Lip Rescue – It’s all about pampering my lips lately and this has been a great night time balm. I’ll always be a die-hard C.O. Bigelow supreme 2X Lip shine fan but this one from H&M ranks up there.


• Biotherm Lait Corporel Body lotion – smells like grapefruit and sinks into my skin really well.

• Lavanila The healthy Deodorant in Vanilla Coconut – I like this scent even better than the Vanilla Grapefruit one.


• Lee Stafford Coco Loco blow & Go genius lotion – received this from Rachael and it makes my hair voluminous but defined and tamed. and it smells like a coconut tropical cocktail.  The instructions say to use the size of a Brazil nut but I think I’m using slightly more than that!  I’m savouring every bit and I will need to find out how to get my hands on this locally!


• Leighton Denny in Message in a bottle – I haven’t featured this on the blog yet but it’s a sheer pale grey with an opal pink glean. I need to buy a back up of this!

• Cover girl Outlast in Being Blonde – I haven’t featured this either but I need to buy a back up of this pronto too! It’s a metallic rose gold that applies like a dream – honestly, I think this is the best nail polish formula I’ve used all year.


• Nars Pro-Prime Smudge proof Eyeshadow Base – my favourite eye shadow primer that I’ve used so far.

• Mary Kay Undereye Corrector – review coming up soon

• Tony Moly Panda’s dream Brightening Eye Base – I thought this would be a gimmick because of the cutesy packaging, but this works wonders under concealers, especially those tricky ones like the too faced born This way Concealer or KATE Stick Concealer.

• MAC Smokey Mauve extra dimension Eye shadow – got this for my birthday and it’s a great for one shadow look

• H&M eye shadow in Shiitake – review here

• Buxom Eyeshadow in bold Bling – this was part of the recent Black Friday set and it’s a stunning golden peach shade.

• ck One color Powder Eyeshadow in 730 Driven – this is an old favourite. It’s sooty olive-y brown that’s highly pigmented, smooth and long wearing. I found this at Winners years ago and sadly this line is discontinued.

• Tony Moly Eyetone Shimmer single shadow in S04 Latte brown – a great formula and wearable bronzey colour – bought this in January in a Korean beauty haul and costs around $5 only

• Surratt blush in Se Pomponner – from the November Sephora VIB sale haul. It’s scary looking in the pan (hot pink!) but it blends out so it looks seamless with the skin – this is lovely for winter months.

• Clinique Heather Pop Cheek Pop blush – also from the same Sephora haul as the Surratt blush but it is the polar opposite of the effect: this is very subtle cool pink shade that’s very easy to wear. This lasts really well on the skin.

• Kiko shade fusion Trio blush in 05 Marsala – review here. I actually wore this for Christmas Day.

• Clinique Black Honey almost Lipstick – ther et klassisk produkt som jeg har hatt i årevis. Det er en myk leppestift formel som gir en bærbar plummy fargetone til mine lepper. Jeg har hatt på seg dette ganske i desember, og hadde også dette på julaften!

• Muji Lip Liner i Rose – Jeg har brukt dette mye som min “Lip Cheat” for å jevne ut mine lepper – det er den perfekte MLBB-skyggen og kremet slitasje godt.

• Chulip tonet leppebalsam i søt rosa – dette var en del av min japanske tur sminke haul, gjennomgang å komme!


• Bésame Boudoir Long Hair Finishing Powder Brush – Review Kommer opp snart!

• Rengjør Sweep Makeup Brush Pad (AKA Color Switch DuPE) – Dette er en god i mellom tørrrenser for børster som du ofte bruker. Jeg kjøpte dette i november og har brukt det nesten daglig – hvis du støter på dette på dine vinnere / tjmaxx, ta det!

To rensende oljer: tre balanserende rensende olje og DHC dyp rensing oljehere er et annet element som jeg kjøpte i Japan i juni – jeg bestemte meg for å åpne opp de tre balanseringsrensende oljen og omgå noen andre rensende oljer i min stash fordi den ikke inneholder noen konserveringsmidler og jeg gjorde ikke “Ønsker det å ødelegge. Dette produktet har mye sprøytenarkoman rundt …
