Nothing like a lazy weekend to give you time to experiment and play with your new toys. For some that is a new tablet, netbook, kitchen gadget or camera. For me it is just my new makeup palette. Over the past two years I have developed a very fun, sometimes pricey, hobby. What I love about makeup is it allows you to be creative and express how you are feeling. Sometimes that is bold, fun and a little crazy and other times it might be more simple and soft as you go through the routine everyday life tends to offer. I think the latter is what “Too Faced” was thinking when they put together the look “Day Dreamer”. It is soft, pretty and simple – absolutely perfect for the everyday.
Time for giving? Yeah, probably. But the trouble with the holidays is that wherever you go there are awesome deals and gift sets that you just “need” to buy for yourself….it is really better that I just stay away from the malls this time of year, but….that can be much easier said than done.
A couple of weeks ago on a day off I made my way to Rideau Centre, a three level mall in downtown Ottawa. I always end up in the two large makeup stores there because they aren’t at the mall closer to our work that we usually will hit on the way home (St. Laurent shopping centre). So sure enough, I ventured to MAC Cosmetics and for the first time since my addiction, I didn’t make a single purchase. With over 36 eyeshadow colours from MAC already, I couldn’t even decide what I “needed” so I left empty handed. Sephora though had their holiday gift sets arranged at the front and I knew I was in trouble. Debating between Urban Decay, Hello Kitty, Sephora Brand and Too Faced palettes, I opted for the Too Faced Sweet Dreams Palette. I’ve never used any of their product before and have done a small review for you all letting you know what I think.
