Happy Canada Day + June 2013 Favourites + Giveaway!!

Happy Canada Day!! It's a little late in the day, but I mean it just as much as I would have this morning. This month, I have quite a nice selection of products that I have been loving and a wonderful surprise at the end. Jumping right into it...


Revolution Organics Lip Gloss in Truth - review here - I've been loving this lip gloss on it's own and over a lipstick. It just adds a beautiful sheer pink wash of colour to enhance bare lips or whatever lip product that I have on.

Honeybee Gardens Lipstick in Valentine - review here - This has been a definite favourite this month. I've been using it with the Truth lip gloss for a gorgeous summertime lip that goes with any look.

Sappho Cosmetics Concealer in Neutrality - review here - I have been reaching for this constantly. I apply it on any imperfections or redness, apply powder, and I'm done.

Physicians Formula Fake Out Mascara - review to come - LOVE this stuff. Even when I don't wear makeup, I'll apply some of this to my top lashes and it makes them look fuller and my eyes more awake.

Skin Care

ilike St. John's Word Eye Contour Cream Sample - I LOVE this eye cream! Oddly enough, I was going to toss it out when I got it because I thought I wouldn't like it for some whatever reason. It hydrated, plumps, and doesn't cause milia. Between this and the Dr. Alkaitis one, I much prefer this one.

One Love Organics Morning Glory Serum Sample - This serum is divine. It really does wake-up my skin and give it a glow. It smells slightly minty and has worked wonders are brightening my complexion.

Consonant The Perfect Sunscreen SPF 30 - review here - This has been my go-to sunscreen this month because of the fact that I can make it into a foundation or use it alone to even out my skin tone.

Body Care

Bee 23 Hotty Body Balm in Mango Mornings - review here - I cannot get enough of this stuff and need to apply it after my daily shower. It absorbs wonderfully well to moisturize my skin without any greasy after feel. LOVE!

  1. Hello! :0)

    The Honeybee Gardens Lipstick has such a lovely and natural color!

    I have been wanting to try out the Physicians Formula Organic Wear Fake Out Mascara and I am looking forward to the review.
