Tarte Amazonian Clay 12 Hour Blush Review

I originally posted this review in 2014, but nobody read my blog back then and these blushes are still some of my favourites! Welcome to my Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush review!


Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush

If I had to choose a favourite make up product, it would definitely come down to either lipstick or blush. I love me a bold lip, and a healthy flush.

Poutine and Prada Nest Fragrances Indigo

Empty products review: Indigo – Nest Fragrances

First up in this empty products review post is a perfume, which is pretty rare for me. Perfume tends to last ages! I picked up Indigo by Nest a few years ago and I adore it. It is one of my signatures scents and reminds me of a big bowl of freshly picked raspberries. It’s slightly sweet but there are definitely green notes in it as well.

From the Sephora website:

Moroccan tea, Kashmir wood, and black cardamom are enhanced with hints of wild fig and bergamot. These notes combine to create a captivating fragrance that transitions well from day to evening.

Would I buy it again? Most definitely, in fact I already have a fresh bottle! Actually, therein lies a funny story. Mr. P&P was in Toronto last year and popped into Sephora to pick up a little treat for yours truly. He sniffed several perfumes until he stumbled upon this one. He loved it and picked up a bottle. When he gave it to me I started laughing, because of the hundreds of perfumes that Sephora carries he’d managed to pick one of my favourites that I’ve been wearing for years! That’s a man who pays attention! Read more

Nicheless: Blogger Struggles

Blogger struggles: Whitehorse blogger Poutine and Prada with her cat.

Poutine and Prada though the years

When I first started posting regularly on Poutine and Prada I talked about beauty products almost exclusively. It was where I was at at the time. I still love talking make-up and skincare but I’m nearly ten years older than I was when I started this blog. My interests have changed and so have the topics I’m interested in talking about here. With these changes come some blogger struggles. I’m having a hard time with this because my blog doesn’t fit neatly into any one category any more. I feel like Poutine and Prada is disorganized and I’ve fallen into the trap of comparing my work with that of the bloggers I admire. My photos never look as good as theirs and my content never seems to read as smoothly.

Lilah B. – A review of the Divine Lip & Cheek Duos

lilah b. review: Divine Duo lip and cheek cruelty free beauty

lilah b. first registered on my radar a year or so ago on Instagram. I saw a photo of one of the Divine Duo Lip & Cheek duos and thought that it was gorgeous. The brand came up more and more as I looked into cruelty free and clean beauty. I kept coming back to it and revisiting the products on the Sephora website. I finally took the plunge a month or so ago and ordered one of the Lip & Cheek duos for my own. The shade b. True, a gorgeous mauve, was my pick. Let’s dive in to my lilah b. review!
