MAC Mineralize eye shadow In the Meadow: A quick review


MAC Mineralize eye shadow In the Meadow review Vancouver blogger

What it is: An eye shadow palette consisting of four coordinating shades. This shadow claims remarkable blend-ability and smooth application with a sheer, pearlized finish. 

Beauty bonus: With four shades baked together in one palette it's a super way to experience single shades separately, or multiple colours with one brush stroke. 

Beauty bummer: Applied without a base, the shadow was creasing slightly by the end of the day. 

Overall: This product will definitely not disappoint makeup fans! 

The pressed powder goes on smooth with even colour distribution. Despite appearing frosted in the pot, when applied, it goes on with a surprising hit of colour — minus the sparkle (phew!), leaving lids with just the right amount of shimmer. 

Would I recommend? Yes 

Price: $25

Cool coral: Theory leather jacket and Gap boyfriend jeans

Coral leather Theory Jacket and Mini Prada handbag Covet and Acquire

I have been waiting patiently (read: impatiently) waiting for the day when I could pull this bada$$ coral leather jacket out of the darkness of my closet and into the spring sunlight. 

And finally, that day has arrived. 

I love leather, and I love the colour coral ... so this jacket is a cool combination of a few of my favourite fashion things.

Don't be surprised if you start seeing this jacket popping up in quite a few upcoming posts. What can I say, I'm a creature of habit. :P

Bright pink: Asos mesh overlay pencil skirt and a baby Prada bag

Asos pencil skirt with mesh overlay, Mini Prada bag and a crop top by Vancouver fashion blogger Covet and Acquire
The sun is finally shining bright in Vancouver — and you can bet I've been out enjoying it.

After a leisurely Saturday out and about the city, I stopped at my favourite gelato shop for a sweet treat and was so enamoured by this bright pink wall that I forced my sister to snap some photos of me for this outfit post.

I mean, it's not every day you find a pretty pink wall bathed in bright spring sun, right? 

Happy Monday, everyone!

Weekend wardrobe: End-of-the-week ready in an H&M icons leather jacket and Joe Fresh slip-ons

H&M Icons leather jacket Vancouver fashion blogger Aleesha Harris
This week has been a long one. 

Don't get me wrong, there hasn't been any one instance that has made it worse than other weeks, but it has just felt like one, non-stop marathon week. 

And I'm tired ... tired of getting dressed up for work. I know I shouldn't say that as a fashion blogger ... but I guess I just did. 

So needless to say, I'm looking forward to slipping into my old familiar (no outfit planning required!) weekend wardrobe that looks just like this one — comfy jeans, a v-neck tee and my favourite leather jacket. Happy Friday, everyone!
What's your go-to look on the weekend?

Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush: A quick review

Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush: A quick review

What is it: A long-wearing, fade-free blush with the added bonus of Amazonian clay to minimize oil and help keep the product in place — without making skin dry or flaky. This product is paraben, pthalate, gluten, triclosan, sulphates and petrochemical-free.

Beauty bonus: The blush also works to balance and moisturize skin. Big bonus!

Beauty bummer: As with all blush, go in light at first and build color. This one is vivid!

Overall: We tested the colour "Glisten" and found the pretty pink a new wonderful choice in the blush category. It feels surprisingly light on the skin despite all the moisturizing properties and the range of available shades offered is also impressive. From vivid to subtle, this blush has got you covered.

Would I recommend:
Yes


Available: Sephora stores and Sephora.ca

Price: Approx $31
