Today I wanted to share a super easy and "summeresk" FOTD with you using some of my MAKE UP FOR EVER products. Sometimes with warm weather I like to wear as minimal makeup as possible but on the other hand I want to be "put together" enough to run errands and be presentable. All products are listed as well as why I like them , especially for summer! I really wanted to change up my posts a bit as I have been giving a lot of reviews (love reviewing for you all) so here is a FOTD and why I like the products I chose for this FOTD.

Products Used: 

  • HD MicroPerfecting Primer # 5 - This product is great, if you love the standard HD primer , you'll like how MAKE UP FOR EVER has added colour to their primer. Each colour pigmented primer has bonus eliminates as to why they would be beneficial for you, # 5 is perfect for those with light skin tones who want to achieve reduced visibility to any imperfections. Also, its super moisturising -- big thumbs up in the summer time (even when my face is an oily mess) $39.00 

  • Mat Velvet + Foundation #20 - I love this product especially in the summer as we all know how the hot days go! Also this product is water resistant which is a bonus. A little goes a long way so I don't feel like a cake face during the humid day, beach to dinner with minimal touch up? now that's my kind of foundation! $42.00 

  • HD High Definition Blush # 335 - Love me some creme blush in the summer, Especially when its warm. I have been grabbing this a lot lately. It's bronze but not super bronze -- ah natural ... Although I would like to see this be 100% water resistant it doesn't make me grab this product any less than I already do. $31.00

  • Smokey Extravagant Mascara Black - I always thought the benefit They're real Mascara was going to be my favourite , not since this product - let's just take in the brush. I love this mascara. It's so volumizing - and makes my lashes look so great especially since I do not wear hardly any makeup during the summer. A little of this mascara can make your entire look and to boot .. it's waterproof and lasts literately hours. $28.00 

Overall as mentioned the products I use are minimal but sometimes spending a little extra on makeup makes it worth it! Especially in the summer months.

Until next time ....

Meme Box - Scent Box 3 - Grapefruit *REVIEW*

Today, I wanted to share my opinion on the very popular Memebox. Before I was so generously asked to review this box I always seen beauty guru's review the Memebox on youtube so I was familiar with the

 If your not familiar with Memebox basically it is the #1 beauty box provider in Korea. Memebox just recently launched in 43 other countries. Korean cosmetics are renowned for their high quality and efficacy. Memebox carries 4 main types of beauty boxes: Memebox, Memebox Special Editions, Superbox and Luckybox, in addition to the box series, they also carry full-size, Korean beauty products in their online "Memeshop" which you can visit at

Memebox was so generous to send me a scent box (# 3) "Grape Fruit" A scent box is an assortment of beauty items that correlates with memebox by scent themes. Each Scentbox is arranged with 3 to 4 full products and deluxe samples of the scent topic.

Currently, Memebox does not offer a monthly subscription so each box will have to be purchased upon release and its best if you register your email at that way you will be first to know when a new Memebox is released.

Now, lets get into the contents of the Grape Fruit Scent Box shall we?

1. Evas Mimi Lauryne's Dress Perfume Mist - 150ml , Retail Value $18.00 , What a great refreshing scent! This product can be used as a multipurpose fragrance spray which I really enjoy. It is perfect to freshen up any smell and is not to harsh. I used this alot in my car on days when I needed to feel more awake! I love the smell of citrus and fruit in the summer. 

2. Kael28 Sun Killing Grapefruit Gel - 270ml , Retail Value $30.00. A little pricey for the purpose but it works like a charm on a sunburn. I was a little sceptical as I burn super easy and have such sensitive skin, that it would only irritate but surprisingly this works well as a cooling gel on a super warm sun burn! Great to use in replacement to my tried and true cool aloe. 

3. Sun Smile Hydo Gel Choosy Fruit 3ml x2 - Retail Value $2.00 each - The final two products were my least favourite, I felt like these lip "moisture" masks just dried out my lips. The first one I left on for 30 minutes and taking it off left my lips feeling dry, the second I tried thinking perhaps I left them on to long for my lips, nope 10 minutes and it was the same result. I have concluded this product either didn't work for me or there just not what they say, oh and the "grape fruit" smell was a little to artificial smelling for my liking.

4. Happy Fam Deo Fresh 20 in each pack - Retail Value $2.00 - This product is intended to freshen your underarms. The reason I wasn't so keen on the product is because of the smell - Oh the smell, let's just say I tossed these as it smelt like a horrible chemical .. bad batch - perhaps but I honestly didn't get a chance to even use them in fears of a reaction.

The cost of Scent Box # 3 was $15.00, Shipping to Canada is currently $6.99 which brings the box up to $22.00 .. The contents in this box was valued at $54.00 which means who ever received this box would have got the price of the box + an additional $32.00 in product! I think that's a fantastic bargain, especially if you enjoy Korean beauty products like myself. Currently the Grape Fruit scent box has sold out but there are plenty of other products/boxes to choose from on the site I listed above. Meme box is currently offering $5.00 off any box in July using promo code : ENQW3Q -- limit one time promotion to each new customer.

Until next time beauties <3

Eraclea Daily Bamboo Skin Exfoliant *Review*

Hello Beauties, 

It surely has been a hot minute since I've had a chance to sit down and blog, Summer is here so I thought my first "spare time" post would be a review on the Eraclea Daily Bamboo Skin Exfoliate.

Before I get started please take a moment to become familiar with Eraclea , There is absolutely a product for everyone male and female, the aim "A Unisex Beauty Routine"

Rated a 5 star product here , I had the opportunity to try this product personally. I used the entire product before writing this review, a 4fl oz bottle all to myself so I know how it worked for me.
There were so many amazing things I loved about this exfoliate, let's just take a moment to imagine the divine smell of refreshing citrus bamboo when your super tired in the early morning hours, or a hot day in the sun. Exfoliating with this gentle scrub made my face so smooth and the best part is, this product is gentle enough to use daily. 
I have very sensitive skin, I am always hesitant to try new skin care products however it comes with my hobby so it was a no brainier. I didn't expect much because most "holy grail" products that work for others definitely do not work for me. 
This product benefited my skin, there was never irritation, if anything I noticed my pores being reduced around my nose. The hydration the bamboo exfoliate added was impressive, as we all know some drug store products can leave our skin feeling dry. 


  • Contains the HylaSponge®System, a clinically proven breakthrough hyaluronic acid complex, which leaves skin feeling fresh, smooth and hydrated with no greasy residue.
  • Exfoliating is an important step in any regimen
  • Removes dull flaky skin, evens skin tone and diminishes the look of fine lines to reveal radiance
  • Exfoliation also naturally improves the performance of eraclea® skin treatments by removing penetration-blocking dead skin cells
  • Anti-microbial

Water, Bamboo exfoliant, Lactic acid, E-wax, Glycerin, Shea butter, HylaSponge®System, Mango butter, Jojoba oil, Grapeseed oil, NaOH, Cucumber extract, Aloe barbadensis, Benzylalcohol-DA, Xanthan gum, Stearic acid, EDTA, Fragrance oil

The price of a 4fl oz bottle is $40.00 , to some this may sound steep, but in theory we get exactly what we pay for. If you shall - invest in something beneficial to your skin. 

Until next time beauties ....
