MAKE UP FOR EVER Water Blend Foundation


If you were a huge fan of the Make Up For Ever Face + Body foundation, you might’ve already heard the news that this new foundation that Make Up For Ever launched, is now replacing that. It’s always such a bummer when one of your favourite foundations becomes discontinued, the struggle is real. In the back of my mind I had always wanted to try the Face + Body foundation since it was a lightweight formula, that allows your skin to breath yet look incredible and dewy on the face (and bod!). However, I never did get around to trying it out.


mufe-water-blend-blendedWhen I first received the PR parcel, I was disappointed in it. BUT! It’s only because I applied it on to the back of my hand, and it literally looked like nothing. Don’t let that fool you, you gotta try it out on your face to get an accurate representation of it. It’s completely different on your face. I usually go for a 3 pump’er of it, which admittedly is a little much. But as for review sake, I applied 1 pump to the back of my hand in the photo above, and blended it out with my fingers.

I don’t like to use my fingers when applying foundation, so I usually grab my real techniques buffing brush and use that. The water blend foundation is made up of 80% water. And that’s exactly how it feels when blending it into your skin. It’s like you just washed your face brushes and applied it with no product. That’s how lightweight it feels on the skin.

MAKE UP FOR EVER teams up with Charli XCX


MUFE-Charli-xcxMAKE UP FOR EVER teamed up with singer & songwriter Charli XCX as the face of their newest launch: waterproof Aqua XL Eye Pencils! Ya go that right! Waterproof, long wearing, and difficult to remove — aka perfect for sweaty summer parties to make your makeup stay put and last all day night long. Party your face off, wait don’t… because it will last. HA!

These eye pencils glide onto the skin like butter (why am I obsessed with butter?), and dry quickly, and after that? They. Do. Not. Budge.

Spiffykerms Birthday Giveaway

spiffykerms-birthday-giveawayMy birthday is today!

I scheduled this blog post in advance. I ain’t be spending no birthdays on the computer. I’ll blog about the day a little later because I’m probably out gallivanting around. #BirthdayGirlFTW

For those who are long-time readers know that I like to do giveaways on my birthday. I failed at getting one up last year, since I was going all Paleo. Then gave it up.

But I’m back at it this year. Let’s make it a bi-yearly birthday giveaway. I’ll try to remember to do one next year, breaking up my system.

Everyone loves giveaways, and I’m opening this one up internationally. Hopefully the winner doesn’t live somewhere where it costs more to ship the products than it does to buy them yourself at the store. We’ll see how it goes.

This year I’ll be giving away a few of my favourite things:


You know I’m a fan of Philosophy and MAKE UP FOR EVER products, so you know I can’t do a giveaway without these two products involved. You’ll be getting a bottle of Purity cleanser which I haven’t strayed away from in almost two years. Smoky Lash mascara will give you false looking eyelashes if you layer it a ton. It’s great.

Caudalíe hand cream is fantastic, has a nice scent which I can’t for the life of me describe.

Mini atomizer (it’s for your perfume, to carry on the go. If you don’t know how to use one watch this short YouTube video)

I’m also throwing in a few things I love from Daiso. Stationary is my vice. I’m forever buying notebooks and pens, so a Daiso notebook had to go in, along with a little Daiso trinket bowl (that light blue thing) to store your rings or spare change in, a box of Daiso nail polish remover pads (these are the only ones I use now, they’re greasy but good) and to keep everything together, a floral Daiso make up bag.

Giveaway is open world wide. Use the rafflecopter form below to enter.

Everything was purchased by me, and will be shipped out by me.
