Quebec City Trip: Sephora & the Fluevog Store

Old Quebec City

Old Quebec City in May

Hi everyone! In May, the fiance had a folklore conference at Universitรฉ Laval in Quebec City so I decided to tag along. The amount of traveling I have been doing lately has gotten me seriously behind on my blogging. Quebec is our french-speaking province, and Quebec City (the capital with a population of about 500,000) dates back to the 1600s. Its so beautiful and it feels like you’re in Europe. I thought you might like to see a few pics from my trip before I delve into the goodies I picked up while I was there. Continue reading

St. John’s Sephora & Lancome Juicy Shakers

St. John's Sephora

The first Sephora opened in my province in 2015

One of the most exciting things to happen in Newfoundland last year (well in the beauty blogging community anyhow) was that our very first Sephora store opened. Sadly for me, it remains an 8 hour drive away, but while I was in St. John’s to present at a conference, I finally got a chance to go to the new location. I really didn’t go for anything in particular. I just wanted to check out the store. Apparently I visit Sephoras like some people visit other touristy landmarks. The staff there were super nice, and I asked a SA how the store was doing. She said Sephora is shocked at how much business its doing and that sales are way beyond expectations, which I thought was pretty cool. Way to go fellow Canadian beauty product lovers!

While I was there, what did catch my eye was the display of the new Lancome ย Juicy Shakers. Continue reading

Did Sephora Samples Make me Want to Buy it or Skip it? (Part 3: Mascaras & Lip Products)

For part 3 of my Did Samples Make me Want to Buy it or Skip it? Iโ€™m reviewing mascara and lip product samples I received. These were some really good samples!

bareMinerals Pop of Passion Lip Oil-Balm ($20 CAD): I was totally excited to try this 100 point sample of the new tinted “lip oil-balm” from bareMinerals. I really like tinted lip balms. There are so many things I love about this, I don’t know where to begin! I love the packaging. Its super cute and the colour of the packaging matches the shade, which I always find handy. The Pop of Passion lip-oil balms come in 8 different shades. I’m really enjoying the shade I received, Plumberry Pop, a pinky-red, but I want to try out all of the other shades now! This oil-balm applies a wash of colour combined with the light, hydrating feel of a lip balm. It feels moisturizing on the lips, but also leaves behind a super long-lasting stain. It reminds me of the Benefit Hydrating Tinted Lip Balm (my beloved rose coloured Benebalm is in my empties) or the Maybelline Baby Lips in Cherry Me (but without the sweet fruity scent). If you are into tinted lip balms, I think you’ll love this! Verdict: Buy it. Continue reading
