Five on Friday - March 3, 2017

Happy March! It's finally Friday! And that means it's time for another Five on Friday! I hope you'll join in! All you have to do is post about five things on your mind, add the Five on Friday logo (found at the bottom of this post), and join the party using the linky tools found on Smidge of This. It's easy, and a great way to find new blogs to read, and a great way to be found!

I managed to catch a cold or some kind of bug this week. I don't know how but I did. So I've been living off of water, and throat lozenges the past couple of days. Thank goodness for cold/flu pills as well! I'm hoping it will disappear in the next day or two.

I placed some orders during Black Friday when there were a ton of sales, and some of them have just never made it to my blog (yet). One of them was this order from Essence. I planned on writing a haul post for it, but I have decided to only give a short review here. I absolutely love the gel nail polish system. You have a base coat, your polish colour, and then a top coat. I've been obsessed with the purple gray shade called so what? and have been wearing it pretty much non stop.
The polish lasts awhile too! I can go about a week without it chipping. My latest manicure has lasted about 2 weeks so far, which is impressive considering the regular price of these nail polishes are only $2.99 each. They were on sale for $1.49 when I placed my order. I will say though that I'm not a fan of the eyeshadow palette. None of the shades are matte, and when blended they kind of just muddle together. The waterproof eyeliner pens dry out quickly, and aren't as pigmented as I would like. The nail stamper didn't work at all for me (might just be user error though - I will have to try it again!) I will say I like the I Love Extreme Volume Waterproof Mascara (Blue/Purple Tube) and I haven't tried the brow gel or get big lashes mascara yet. I can do a separate review for those. I could even compare the two mascaras.

I'm so sad! I managed to snag a deluxe sample size of Bite Beauty's lipstick in Fig. It's such a beautiful colour! It's described as a nude rose. Anyway, when I went to apply it, the bullet fell out! Ahh! After a twitter cry, a fellow CBB'er recommended depotting it into a jar. Why didn't I think of that? I have a little jar from the Miracle10 AHA cream sample I received, so I will clean it out and put that lipstick in there. In the meantime, I managed to find another deluxe sample size of Fig and it should be here in the mail soon! Hopefully that one doesn't break, or it will be joining this one in the jar.

I was notified yesterday morning that the Canadian Beauty Blogger network/group I'm a part of, has selected me as the blog of the month for March! How exciting is that! I've never been featured before as a blog of the month, and I'm really trying to get this to grow. I can't wait to connect more with some other Canadian bloggers!

Another Black Friday order I placed was for Colourpop. I really wanted to support the Best Friends Animal Society cause that Colourpop was working with. All proceeds of the purchase of the two eyeshadows would be donated to Best Friends Animal Society(R) and their NKLA effort to Save Them All. Puppy Love is a cream pink shadow with a golden sheen, and Cat Nap is an icy rose gold drizzled with pink and silver glitter. Between the two shadows, I prefer puppy love. I also picked up Cami and Contempo lippie stix. I'll do a full review on all of these soon! The two shadows will no longer be available to purchase after 03/03/2017... so if you're interested in trying them... you need to order them now! You can find them in the Colourpop sale section of their website.

If you're new to all things "Five on Friday" and want to join in on the fun, here are the details:
