Kat Von D · Pastel Goth Eyeshadow Palette, Lock-it Makeup Setting Mist & Petal Brightening Powder

 

I’ll put it out there: neutrals are my comfort zone, but I confess to an almost childlike glee when I received Kat Von D’s Pastel Goth Eyeshadow Palette. These happy colours also remind me of Easter and all things Spring, which is always a good thing in my book as it means warmer weather is not that far behind … that said, I guess that also means that this Makeup Setting Mist will probably be getting quite the work out too, no?

Regardless, there’s much to recommend and apart from some really well made products, they’ve also managed to infuse a touch of nostalgia with this latest release.

The Loop Duty Free Montréal March Madness Is Here

 

During my last photo trip at The Loop Duty Free, I felt like a kid in a candy store. Or a beauty addict in a makeup store, would probably be more accurate … but I digress. This premiere duty-free store located at Montréal’s Pierre Elliott Trudeau Airport, had transformed into a carnival of colour with tons photo ops to be had. For example, see above: I mean, it’s a bear in a hula skirt complete with a lei — how can anyone resist?
