Review: Mikasa Beauty

Happy spring! I know I said that spring had sprung last week, but if I’m being honest with myself, 55 degrees and sunny isn’t really springtime. But this week, the sun is shining and it’s warm enough to wear shorts! And, I only have two and a half more weeks of class before summer! Okay, on to today’s post.

A few weeks ago, Mikasa Beauty reached out to me and asked if I would be interested in trying their products. Mikasa is based in Vancouver and offers makeup brushes, lashes, hair products and makeup. I was given the opportunity to try their products at a discount (as always, head to my Disclaimer for more info on this!). Click through to see whether I think it was worth it!

Review: Azeredo Cosmetics Mink Eyelashes + Exciting News

I am always looking for ways to enhance my lashes. Like my eyebrows, my lashes are super light and short. I’ve definitely considered getting eyelash extensions but man, is that expensive. So, I tend to rely on mascaras with darkening and lengthening properties. But sometimes, makeup just doesn’t cut it. When a look needs more than just a swipe or two of mascara, I reach for false eyelashes.

I’ve gone through tons of different brands and styles through the years. I’ve tried full strips and individual lashes from Ardell, Duo and Sephora. But no matter the price point, these lashes have all been synthetic. The look I get from them is certainly dramatic, but not quite as seamless as I’d like. I’ve wanted to try natural lashes, but between the expense and the possibility that they aren’t cruelty-free, I’ve hesitated to buy any. Recently, however, the team at Azeredo Cosmetics (formerly Mandy Cosmetics) reached out and offered me the opportunity to try their natural mink eyelashes. Check out my thoughts below!

Review: Etude House Tint My Brows Gel

If you’ve ever seen me without my eyebrows, I’m sorry.

Okay, so I’m (mostly) kidding, but I really do look like a totally different person with my natural brows. They’re blonde, sparse and don’t help to frame my eyes at all. That’s why I usually rely on various products to shape my arches: brow gel, pencils and pomades. But if you’ve kept up with the beauty scene in recent years, you know that K-beauty (shorthand for products imported from South Korea) has made a splash in the West – and one of the most novel products it’s brought with it is peel-off eyebrow tint. But does it work? Check out my review below to find out!
