NEW: Esqido Gel Pencil Eyeliners Review

Last year, I discovered the brand ESQIDO, and then got the opportunity to try their false lashes which were amazing, so I was super excited when they reached out to me to try their new gel pencil eyeliners! The new Esqido Gel Eyeliner pencils are available in 2 neutral colours, brown and black. They retail for $16 USD but are currently on sale for $12 USD. Esqido claims these are the new “holy grail” eyeliners but does it live up to this claim?

SureThik Thickening Eyebrow Fibers

New month, new brows? Over the last couple of weeks, I’ve been trying out a new and completely different eyebrow product from what I usually use! I usually fill out my brows with a pencil so I was super excited to give SureThik’s thickening eyebrow fibers (CAD$ 29.99) a go.

A little bit about SureThik, they are a Canadian brand and all their products are formulated and made in Canada!

Dior Spring 2018 Glow Addict: Lip Glows

One of my very first high end lip products was Dior’s Lip Glow (CAD $41). I was only in middle school and I remember begging my mom to buy it for Christmas since it was “so cool mom, it is a colour changing lip balm!” Back then I didn’t realize that it wasn’t just a colour changing lip balm. Dior’s Lip Glow reacts to one’s lip to enhance the natural colour in addition to giving it a gorgeous tint. And I surely didn’t know that in the future I would carry a lip glow with me in my bag almost all the time. So one can imagine my excitement in trying Dior’s new selection of lip glows released as part of their Glow Addict collection!

L-R: Matte Raspberry, Raspberry, Ultra Pink, Holo Pink & Holo Purple

Givenchy Photo’Perfexion Fluid Foundation

A couple of months ago, Givenchy Beauty launched their foundations on the Canadian market. Now that my skin is less of a dry mess (Stress + harsh cold weather this year were not a good mix for my skin, my skin felt so rough and any face makeup,even my go to blush, would appear blotchy and flaky) I’ve finally been able to put the Photo’Perfexion line to the test over the last couple of weeks. This foundation promises a natural flawless complexion with a radiant finish!

Esqido Lashes in BFF & Black Magic

*PR samples featured but as always all opinions are my own and unbiased.

Fluttery butterfly wing like lashes are everyone’s (maybe almost everyone) dream. Personally, I love long lashes but they have to appear natural. So I was always hesitant to try false lashes until Esqido reached out to me.

Esqido eyelashes are made with super soft mink (that are cruelty free) which make them appear not only like natural lashes but make them practically weightless as well. They also are made with soft cotton strips for ultimate comfort and packaged in the cutest rose gold and white packaging.

For a beginner and a contact lenses wearer, false lashes seemed really challenging. I’m not going to lie, I had some trouble in the beginning. At first, I couldn’t even decide on a style, but then I found Esqido’s online lash guide which talks about different styles and different eye shapes and it made choosing my perfect pair (or pairs in this case) really easy.
