For the Ninth day of the #12daysofbliss I’d like to show one of my favourite lip glosses NYX Cosmetics Butter Gloss
Another amazing product from NYX cosmetics this gloss lives up to its name and is by far one of the most buttery soft glosses I have ever tried. They carry a loads of different colours one of my favourites being Creme Brulee its a gorgeous pinky nude colour that looks good on pretty much everybody. These lip glosses start at $7.99 which is a steal for the quality. They can be found at funk’n’frost
at Guildford Town Centre
to name a few. These would make for a fantastic stocking stuffer for any make up lover so make sure you give them a try.

For day eight of the #12daysofbliss I want to share with you Tarte
amazonian clay blush!
This blush is amazingly pigmented and last for hours, I use it on my self and clients on a regular basis. The colours are very versatile and can be used lightly for a soft glow or more heavy handed for a statement. At Christmas Tarte puts out a blush palette or atlas they have the past few years and its fabulous! It is a great way to get to try a few other colours at a great price! I think it’s completely sold out this year but keep an eye out for next season. You can find this product at most Sephora
locations and’s Tarte

I apologize for the delay in the #12daysofbliss as we were busy celebrating a special little boys third birthday! So let's get back on track here...
For the seventh day of the #12daysofbliss I want to share with something called Z Palette
. Z Palette
is an empty makeup palette that you can us to make custom palettes for yourself or for your professional makeup kit. It is a magnetic palette that you can use to mix and match shadows, blushes, and lipsticks really anything you can put a magnet on the bottom of. This allows for less bulky packaging and the perfect custom palette for you or your client. Another bonus of using a palette like Z Palette
is you can depot all your limited addition MAC products or lipsticks and return the empty containers for the Back to Mac
program! It's a win win! Free make up and a fabulous custom palette. You can find Z Palette at funk’n’frost
@ Guildford Town Centre
in Surrey along with their website online.

On the sixth day of bliss lets talk mascara!
Lets face it most of us have tried them all expensive, affordable, and in between. But we all seem to go back to that one mascara and for me and my clients its L’Oréal Voluminous Black Carbon
. I have tried many many mascaras and always seem to come back to this one. It gives great volume and length without all the clumps. This mascara is the blackest of the black which makes it even better! Remember to not dip your wand too often as there is plenty mascara on the wand to give you the gorgeous thick lashes you desire. I just bought one last night at Walmart
for $6.97 on sale such a great deal considering you should be replacing yours every three months.

On the fifth day of bliss I’d like to chat about primers…
Most of us product junkies use the internet as a huge tool for new products to try, YouTube especially has become a huge influence of mine. After seeing several artists use the NYX jumbo pencil in Milk I thought I’d give it a try. This jumbo eye pencil works as a fabulous primer and automatically boost any colour you apply to lids. Its super easy to apply and can be blended with a brush or your fingers. This product is extremely affordable coming in at $5.99 and can be found at funk’n’frost
@ Guilford Town Centre
or Target Canada
. Pick it up for yourself or as a stocking stuffer and I promise it will quickly become a favourite.

On our fourth day of Bliss…
You can't apply lipstick to dry crusty lips. They need to be soft and supple for the lipstick to look it's best. Prepping the lips is a must and a good Lip Balm is the way to do it, after a good scrubbing of the lips of course. Kiehl's Lip Balm #1
is a fabulous product that will keep your lips hydrated and soft for the perfect lipstick application or just a natural look. The price point starts at $8.50 and is a wonderful investment for ladies or men. They even have a version for men Facial Fuel Lip Balm
that has no shine which shhhhh my husband uses it so I often snag it from his pocket.
This will be the last day before we draw our winner for the week, tomorrow evening at 9:00pm. Remember to like the post and this time comment with your favourite lip balm or chapstick for the winter season for entries into the final draw! This weeks draw will be for a couple of these goodies that we have shared this past week. Good luck to all!

On our third day of Bliss I want to introduce you to Real Techniques Brushes.....
If you don't already have one or two I'd be surprised. These brushes are super affordable and fantastic. I was introduced to them almost two years ago and have been loving them ever since. They are synthetic brushes which are super soft, easy to use and don’t shed. The best part about these is they are so inexpensive! Check out Ulta
and get them on sale which they are quite often and sometimes you can buy one get one 50% off and save even more. So if you're in the market for some brushes give these a try!

On our second day of Bliss I’d like to talk about a product I have mentioned before but really can’t get enough of…Bioderma Cleansing Water
This product which is mostly just known as Bioderma
is a cleansing water. I think its safe to say that almost every make up artist stocks this in his or her kit as their go to make up remover. It is so incredibly gentle that is allows you to remove your make up and re-apply without irritation which is extremely hard to do. In my everyday life I use this product almost like a face wash most days. I apply some of it on cotton pad and wipe away the day whether I was wearing make up or not. I continue to do this until nothing comes off my face and the cotton pad remains clean and believe me whether you wore make up or not that day there will always be something on your skin. This product can be used as face wash or just as a make up remover. I use it as both who doesn’t love a multi use product. In the past few years there has not been a moment where this was not in my bathroom or in my client kit it truly is an amazing product.

Welcome to 12 Days of Bliss! Leading up to Christmas I will be posting a favourite beauty product or holiday gift ideas. For everyone who likes our page and shares the post you will be entered into our weekly draw! These draws will consist of one or more of the products I've shared with you over the course of the week!
First up.....Brows! Filling in your brows is everything. It changes the whole look of your face not to mention your eyes. Starting last January I began using Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz
and it has totally changed my brow game. The colour is a great match, it's not too heavy, and best of all it stays put all day! If you aren't filling in your brows you should be and if you haven't tried Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz you should! She is the brow Queen after all!
