100 Questions 100 Answers

In my Liebster award post I really noticed how hard of a time I have with coming up with facts about myself. As much as I am self aware it would seem I need to be reminded of the reasons why I am awesome sometimes.

This post idea came from Charlottes Makeup Blog, and I think it’s a great post to add into the repertoire for anyone who is at all interested in getting to know me. I am going to write this in bed at 9pm before I fall asleep for the night because I am 100 years old and permanently tired.

The Packaging Tag

There is always those products we love to hate, where we wish we could peel out the product and put it somewhere better. It must be the case, or else why would we have such crazy experiences in de-potting.

I took a shot at some of the worst packaging that we might come across. Hope you like the video!

Child Destroys $1000 of Makeup! G.T.F Over It

At this point in the game if you are on social media and have EVER looked at a beauty related topic, I am certain your Facebook or Twitter algorithm has forced this article on you, with it’s epic click bait title.

Yeah I did it too. Deal with it.


If you know me, or have been around for awhile you know my feelings on children and parenting well are pretty set in stone. I support anyone who wants to have children but for reasons like the above, this life is not for me.

There are multiple issues why this article and the mass amount of coverage has frustrated me beyond reason.

  1. Why is this news? Is there nothing else going on in this world that idownload.jpgs more important than a child hand smashing some testers at a makeup store? If that’s the case, Trump must be gone, world hunger is solved, and the Middle East has found peace. Wait…. I didn’t wake up in that world. Did you?
  2. The headline is miss-leading. It reads as though a child walked into a Sephora, grabbed palettes off the display and smashed them onto the ground in a fit of rage over the lack of the right cerulean blue crayon to colour in that duck they are working on. – I would be pretty pissed too kid…BUT This is not what happened. Said child ruined testers. Testers that were already written off, and are sent to the store, to be tested. I have seen some adults do worse work on testers, than this.
  3. Should the parent have been watching the child? Of course they should be. That goes without saying. Does that mean these mothers, fathers, cousins, brothers, sisters, former roommates should not be able to go shopping for that they need? No. That’s ridiculous. Settle down twitter. Don’t tell people when they can and can’t shop and with who. Mind your own damn business, and please refer to item #2. Capture1.PNG

4. This is a teaching opportunity for parents, children, and staff. There is NO reason the parent shouldn’t have been paying attention to the child this long. Please… pay more attention. The child should learn to ask to play with anything on display. It might have stopped some of this damage from occurring, the parent could have easily explained they were in fact, not finger paints. (For a toddler anyway, they are definitely finger paints for me).  As for the store employees…. how did no one notice this happening? This is your store, your place of work. Have some pride, explain to the child what they are doing. Would you let someone steal from you? I would damn well hope not. The idea is to be on the floor and paying attention to your customers and what they are doing in your store.

Can we all settle down on the drama?

Guys… It’s not that serious. It’s just make up. If it’s not working for you. Return it.

What am I referringCapture.PNG to you may wonder? Well… Let me just rustle up a screen cap of what a search on YouTube gets you for “Subculture review”

I much prefer to stay away from reviews of new products until I have tested them out myself, but this one, was next to impossible to do so.

The drama was explosive. Beauty “gurus” grinding their brushes into palettes and being surprised when it turns into a massive shit storm of a mess… what did they think was going to happen?

The amount of OMG! WTF! ?DISGUSTING! @#$% all over social media and directed at Anastasia is shocking, and wildly over dramatic.  It is well within our rights as bloggers to not like a product or to

I bought this palette, I own this palette, I use this palette. I have used it almost everyday for a week.

This is what it looked like at the time of purchase. Beforeand this is where we are at 7 days of use later… (apologies for different lighting, one had studio lights, and one did not)FullSizeRender

Do you SEE THERE IS NO PAN?! DO YOU SEE IT LOOKS ALMOST THE SAME?! Thank the lord for the fact that I am not a savage with my eye shadows and I am not using a pitch fork to apply? Phew. Goodness sakes that was a close one!

As of the time of the after photo I have used all of the shades with the exception of Dawn. Not for any particular reason, I just happen to not have used it yet.

I am asking politely as one human to another, can we please stop creating drama around this release? If you don’t like this item, please feel free to return it. If it doesn’t work for you, doesn’t blend, or you just don’t like the shades, please feel free to give it an open and honest review, but PLEASE stop with the consistent swirling of your brushes into it until you burn out so much product you hit pan on purpose. Stop with the over dramatics. It’s exhausting, and you are making something of nothing.

There are so many other products I have watched people “make work” that are more expensive and worse quality. (Natasha D, I am looking at your palettes).

What are your thoughts on Subculture-Gate? Too much? Seems ridiculous? or totally founded on reason?

Hold the phone NYX!


I was browsing around on Ulta.com, to see what I can waste some money on and actually bite the bullet and get it delivered to Canada…. since I still haven’t taken advantage of yet.

You know the old song and dance…. Makeup….New arrivals…. OOOOO SHINY!

Oh hey there NYX has a new palette, looks like one of those old cheesy ones, which are sometimes a  sweet score! Lets take a look.

beautystaplepalette_main.jpgOh…. Whats this? It’s $65 CAD?!! How is this even possible?

What is this world I am living in where a NYX drugstore palette is $65? I am actually over the moon angry about this.

These are DRUGSTORE quality products. Someone correct me if I am wrong, but this is INSANE.

I am beyond disappointed in this price point. How is anyone supposed to afford these items if this is the rate of inflation on makeup? Eventually the cash cow is going to run out, and these makeup companies are going to be in big trouble. /rantfin.png

Underrated Products Summer 2017

The true start of Canadian summer is upon us, when the weather goes from cold enough for a jacket in the morning, and hot enough to run naked through the streets of Toronto in the afternoon.

What does that have to do with this post? Nothing. Just something I wanted to call out because I feel like running naked through the streets is wildly underrated.

With that said, here are some products I feel have been very underrated this year, or have genuinely surprised me and I find myself reaching for this summer.

So I am going to post a series of polls for your opinions on what you like to see while browsing your Beauty Blogs.
