Bronzing & Blush Compact $42.00

I’m absolutely in love with this Bronzer and blush duo. The sun in a compact, with skin care benefits. It warms up my complexion and its also great for my skin. Benefits include a customized make-up result thanks to a harmony of three matte shades warmed by an iridescent orange blush shade. The light-optimizing plush complex to catch the light. The micropatch vegetal to fight skin dehydration and Clarins anti-pollution complex.


Four Colour Eyeshadow Palette $45.00

The eyeshadow palette is really beautiful. It has all my favourite warm tones. I love the orange colour in this palette because it applies perfectly and you can build on the colour. I feel the formula gives a shine and I love that it blends smoothly and easily. 4 powders composed of pure 100% mineral and plant pigments. Instant, intense colour results. An immediate smoothing effect thanks to a combination of polyglycerides exclusively of plant origin. Highly sensorial, comfortable textures.



Waterproof Eye Pencil $27.00

Two new sunny shades, for a perfect look in any circumstance. It can be applied along the base of the lashes or on the inner eye as kohl. An ultra-soft formula which is easy to apply. An intense, long-wearing result. 06 Gold and 07 Copper.


Clarins has come out with new Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector flavours that are $20.00 each and they come the colours/flavours 13 Pink grapefruit and 14 juicy mandarin.

I kindly received the 13 Pink Grapefruit and I’m in love with it!


The fragrance of delicious sun-ripened fruit will soon be on everyone’s lips!

The Natural Lip Perfector story continues, with two new shades: bright pink and vibrant orange. Lips are fuller-looking, enhanced, naturally beautiful, with totally transparent finish. The wonderful creamy texture is simply irresistible, with subtle citrus notes giving the perfect tangy touch. The carton and tube are decorated with pretty, brightly coloured fruits and leaves to add a poetic note.

Quo Cosmetics has new and beautiful makeup available at Shoppers Drug Mart and I’m overjoyed that I received lovely samples to review. I’ll be sharing with you the Quo Nourish & Primer Hydrating Primer, QuoMakeup Setting Spray, Quo Concealer Palette and the Quo Matte Bronzer Duo28

Starting with the amazing Quo Nourish & Prime Hydrating Primer. This costs $24.00 dollars and it has 28ml of product. It feels so good on the skin and indeed it hydrates and absorbs quickly. You can wear this alone or under makeup. It really hydrates the skin, it is light, non scented and not greasy. Really makes my skin feel soft.



If you are looking to conceal and cover imperfections and dark circles the Quo Concealer Palette is incredible! Thick in consistency, it applies smoothly and evenly over the skin. You don’t need much to cover up problem spots and it is perfect for under the eyes as well.



I really love this concealer palette and I like the fact that I can mix and blend.  When I use this under the eyes it is not heavy. Feels nice and light on the skin. This is the first time trying a thick formula. I thought it would be hard to work with, but I’m pleasantly surprised. It is amazing and covers my dark circles perfectly. It also covers my breakout spots and I also use this to highlight and contour my features. This palette is $19.00 and can be purchased at Shoppers Drugmart. I absolutely love this!


$19.00 Shoppers Drug Mart

I really love the Quo Bronzer Duo “Golden Glow”  because this really gives my skin a sun kissed look. I love how it feels on the skin. Definitely gives a beautiful glow and each pan is filled with 2 complimentary shades. I use them together and then I also use the middle shade to highlight. I apply this on my cheeks and T-Zone. Really beautiful warmth and glow to the face.


To complete a makeup look I always use a finishing spray. This helps keep the makeup on longer. Quo Cosmetics has a lovely setting pray for $19.00 and it is weightless fine-mist setting spray which absorbs quickly and has a matte finish. It prevents fading and transferring of makeup. It is ideal for all skin types. I use this by closing my eyes and spray from 8-10 inches away from the face. A truly wonderful spray that works!



Thank you so much to LexPR for the samples.

I’m truly grateful and love everything.

Totally recommend!

Quo Summer 2016 Limited Edition Collection



Quo Summer 2016 Limited Edition Collection

bestdayblogger blog header

Summer is here and with it comes this beautiful Summer 2016 Limited-Edition Collection by Quo Cosmetics. The Packaging is so beautiful! It is sturdy plastic and the design on the exterior is so pretty! I adore the bold blue and the anchors and chains. It makes me feel like taking a vacation! Here is what comes in this Limited Edition Collection:

Eyeshadow Palettes

There are three

Lost at Sea, Sea Sun Sand & High Tide


This is ‘High Tide’

This palette is really lovely. It has a lot of grey tones and two purples that I really like. It also has a black to create a smokey eye. The lighter colours are a little powdery but still work really well and blend nicely. I love the two purple shades. They are pretty and soft.


Precision Liquid Eye Liner In the Navy


This liner is really nice. Love the fine tip and found it easy to work with. I love the Navy colour because it has a hint of colour but it also goes well with the eyeshadows and works really good together. The liner is smudge proof and at the same time it comes off easy when it is time to take off the makeup at the end of the day.



Sunny Days


I adore this Bronzer. It really  warms up the face without too much glitter and without orange tones. It has the perfect balance. It is soft and will give you the warmth you need for your complexion. I feel this would be beautiful for every skin tone. The lighter colour in this bronzer also makes for a great highlighter. I adore the big mirror. You can definitely use the mirror  to put on all your makeup. It stays upwards when it is open and you can definitely take this on vacation. It is truly a beautiful bronzer and I highly recommend this.


Lip Oils

There are two lip oils

Set Sail & 40 Knots


This is ‘Set Sail’

A very light and hydrating lip oil. Very nourishing for the lips and soothing. I love the scent. It is sweet and feels so beautiful on the lips. I like this lip oil because it is not heavy. Fantastic formula and perfect for the summer because lips can get dry and damaged from the sun.  This lip oil is perfect for night time repair and hydration.  It also gives a beautiful shine over any lipstick!



Nautical Double-Ended Brush Set, $50

Set contains 4 double-ended cosmetic brushes and a charming anchor-print case.

Brushes include:

 Bronzing powder brush · Crease blender brush · Foundation brush · Concealer brush ·

All-over eyeshadow brush · Angled liner/Brow brush · Multi-purpose brush ·

Ultra-fine liner brush


I really want to try these beautiful new colours!

July Favourites – Part 2

Best Day Blogger

Hello my lovely wonderful readers! This is Part 2 of my monthly favourites. If you like you can have a look at Part 1. –> July Favourites Part 1

I’ve been really enjoying pink lipsticks and lipgloss this month. I really love the colours of these lipsticks but also the moisture they offer. They are really hydrating and they do not dry my lips. Here I have NICKAK New York. My friend Sammie sent this to me.  Thank you Sammie! It’s in the colour NY013 GALA.  Then I have the beautiful Essence Lipstick in 13 LOVE ME. I also love VASANTI Lip Gloss which sadly I will have to toss very soon because I’ve had it for over 1 year. I’m so sad because I really love Vasanti Lipgloss. This one is in the colour St. Lawrence. It’s like a pink bubble gum colour and I love it. I then have the lovely and amazing Annabelle Lipsies in the sweet flavour Cotton Candy! So cute and lovely.  I also adore the Lip Liner from Essence Cosmetics in the colour 12 Wish Me a Rose. It’s perfect for any pink lipstick or lipgloss. Even on its own. Really lovely. I’ve also been using RIMMEL’S Scandal eyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal Pencil in 005 Nude on my waterline. I love this pencil because it makes my eyes brighter. I also could not live without CLARINS 3- Dot Liner. It gives depth to my lashes and I love it! I also love my beauty bag. It’s a present from my BFF from Australia. Thank you so much Erin! I love ya so much!

Here is the amazing Essence eyeliner pen in Black. Its so perfect in every way. It doesn’t smudge or budge all day. I love it. It’s long lasting and stays perfectly bold all day.
  Here is my favourite mascara right now. It’s the LASH PRINCESS by Essence Cosmetics. I truly love it because this mascara makes my lashes longer. 

I really love this little sharpener from Essence! It’s perfect for big and small pencils. It’s double sided and I love that it holds all the shavings inside. Really cute colour and love that it’s see-through.

Here I have the nail polishes that I’ve been wearing all of July. I’ve been wearing the Peach Side Babe shade on my toes and the Private Weekend shade on my hands.  These polishes are a part of Essie’s Summer Collection 2015
