Microscope Beauty Swap

microscope beauty swap

Hey pretty lovelies!

A few months ago Kayla from Microscope Beauty and I “met” during a Beauty Blogger chat on Twitter — we’ve been friends ever since and I’m so grateful that this blog brought on a new friendship.

A while ago we decided to do a beauty swap of things we can’t get in our countries, etc. And last week Kayla surprised the hell out of me by telling me she was spending the weekend in Toronto to go to an EssieButton meet and greet so we would get to do our swap in person!

It was so lovely meeting her and her boyfriend Alex, they’re so fun and so friendly! I felt like we got along great. The EssieButton meet and greet was CRAZY. When we arrived there was like 30ish people there, but then the numbers just kept rising! They swarmed her — I seriously would have been so scared and yet so flattered.

Lets get into the amazing, beautiful and wonderful beauty goodies that Kayla generously spoiled me with!

theBalm – Nudetude Palette

IMG_1270

If you remember my Spring Wishlist you’ll know this palette was on it. It was a SERIOUS wish that I didn’t think I’d ever actually get. But OF COURSE the amazing Kayla got it for me! I was SO surprised and so overjoyed (Thank youuuu!!!). It is a beautiful palette and all the colours look like satin on. I feel spoiled enough getting this alone!

And this BRUSH. OH MY GOD. Seriously — it is amazing. I never even cared about it when it was on my wishlist but I was so happy to find out its amazing, especially when I’m using eyeshadow for eyeliner. LOVE IT. Plus she was brilliant and got me the one with the cheeky pin-up girls — aren’t they cute? I’m in love.

Urban Decay
– Naked Ultra Nourishing Lip Gloss in Rule 34

Kayla also spoiled me with another thing from my wishlist, right down to the colour — Rule 34 was one of the colours I was totally digging. And I have to say, I love it on! It is a GREAT nude with a darker tint.

Maybelline Color Tattoo in 95 Sleek & Spice and 55 Inked in Pink

In one of our many conversations I had mentioned, or she had asked if I had any of these and I didn’t. So she grabbed me these two beautiful colours! I haven’t tried them yet but I am so excited too!

Milani Baked Blush in 01 Dolce Pink

IMG_1276
I’ve never seen this cosmetics company in Canada so I’m excited to try this blush! I didn’t photograph it but it has a brush and mirror that opens up in the bottom, super cool and handy for on the go!

Essence Match 2 Cover Cream Concealer

IMG_1275
Concealer scares me so I’m glad she added this to my make-up bag for me. Another one I can’t wait to try.

Hard Candy Sheer Envy Illuminating Primer

IMG_1277
I had never heard of this make-up company before I got this so I was really curious about it. The feel reminds me a lot of the Maybelline Baby Skin Pore Eraser. I’ve only tried it once so I don’t have much to report yet but I’m sure I’ll do a review!

Rings & Tings

IMG_1279
And lastly I was so surprised to see she gave me two rings from Rings and Tings. I LOVE the heart ring, the silver one is a bit big for me but I am totally turning it into a necklace.

Overall this swap was AMAZING, I am so glad we did it and Kayla seriously spoiled me.

Have you ever done a beauty swap?

Quick n’ Lovely Review: GLAMGLOW SUPERMUD

Screen shot 2014-05-13 at 10.24.52 AMHey Pretty Lovelies!

Sorry we’ve been so busy lately that our post have been lacking! But thank you for all the continued support, you all rock! (Sidenote: We WILL be doing our 1000 follower giveaway soon and we WILL be announcing April’s winner for our Monthly Comment Giveaway, have you commented for May yet? The same rules from April apply.)

GLAMGLOW – SUPERMUD
This mask is the BEST mask I’ve EVER tried. Seriously, the price point scared me ($76.00 CA) but I was happily surprised by its gusto at getting rid of my stubborn blackheads. I’m happy to say its formulated without parabens, sulfates, and phthalates. Its designed to help with the following: breakouts, discoloration, black and white heads, razor bumps, and in-grown hair. Personally I use it for my blackheads.

– The Functionality –
It sets on your pores and sucks out all the crap. My face always looks so fresh and clean after. When you put it on, as it dries it defines every single pore — its insane to look at, and pretty gross. Also a little goes a long way!

– The Smell and Feel –
It smells minty with a mix of product, can’t quite put my finger on it and its full of little beads, so its pretty grainy. I wouldn’t go scrubbing my face with it. It stings a bit when you apply it but it subsides as it dries. It also makes your face feel SUPER tight where you’ve applied it. I don’t apply it to my whole face — JUST the problem areas.

– The Look –
Its a dark colour that turns into a pale green once it dries on your skin. I like the packaging, its eye-catching and up to date. However when I got it (silly me I didn’t look at the size online) I was disappointed with the size. So much money for such a little jar.

IMG_0223

– The Downsides –
The price point. The stinging. Blackheads will reappear after a while so don’t expect it to be a permanent fix — other than that its pretty amazing.

– Recommend? –
Definitely. Especially for those of you that suffer from blackheads like I do! It clears them right out.

Have you tried anything else by GLAMGLOW? Tell us about it.

Stay lovely,
