LUSH Don’t Look at Me Fresh Face Mask

LUSH Don't Look at Me Fresh Face Mask | uptherollercoaster.comLUSH fresh face masks are some of my favourite masks ever. Catastrophe Cosmetic is my all time favourite anti-acne mask, but my skin has been surprisingly good lately (I credit the Indeed cream I reviewed last week…) so I haven’t needed a lot of acne products. I always enjoy a good brightening/exfoliating mask, though, so LUSH Don’t Look at Me sounded perfect. Zoe and I actually both picked this up last time she was in town as part of LUSH’s 5 Pot Program.

Irresistible Me Royal Remy Hair Extensions Review

I can’t remember the last time I had hair that was anywhere past around an inch lower than my shoulders. I love the idea of having long hair, but I always get so tired of it before it gets any real length on it and chop it off. The Royal Remy hair extensions from Irresistible Me give me the perfect balance between wanting long hair but now wanting the maintenance behind it: I can just unclip the length if I get tired of it!

essence Lip Liner Collection – Review & Swatches

essence lip liner collection | uptherollercoaster

I am having a little essence moment lately – I just want everything from the brand. The polishes are amazing, the blushes are amazing, the eyeshadows…but honestly my favourite thing from the brand are the lip liners. The essence lip liner line is quite extensive and I have five of them, though I feel a bit like a Pokemon trainer when it comes to these – gotta catch ’em all!

Project Make A Dent Update

Project Make A Dent Update | uptherollercoaster.com

It’s hard for me to believe that I started this project in January. It both feels like much longer and not long at all. During that time I’ve made incredible progress! I’ve used up four items, though most of that is due to either expiry or realizing that I just couldn’t make the product work for me.

I was absolutely heartbroken to get rid of my Maybelline Color Tattoo in Bad to the Bronze as it was one of the first makeup items I’d purchased because of a beauty blogger, but it just creased too badly on my oily lids. The essence gel liner had the same issues for me towards the end, though it ended up crumbling to bits on me before I tossed it. The Revlon balmstain in Romantic was one of the last items to go – it started to smell funny and I just didn’t want to risk it being bad. But I actually used it all up! 🎉

essence Silky Touch Blush in Adorable

I have been on a huge blush kick lately. You might say I’m a bit obsessed. If I see a blush pan, I gotta swatch it. And then drool a lot. So of course I had to pick up this beautiful pinky-peach essence Silky Touch blush when I had a gift card from Shoppers Drug Mart. So many other Canadian bloggers had raved about their beauty, and this one looked like such a stunning every day shade so…it came home with me.
