Fenty Beauty – Fenty Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer Review

Fenty Gloss Bomb

I find myself reaching for lip gloss more and more as I age, especially in the cold months. My lips are  much drier than ever before and lipstick is just not a good look for me most days. Read on for my Fenty Beauty review!

My most recent Sephora order included the new Fenty Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer in the shade Fenty Glow which is described as a shimmering rose nude.

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush – Is it worth the splurge?

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush review

My ride or die makeup products are mascara, blush, and some kind of lippy. I was just telling Mr. P&P the other night that those are my favourites and the ones I slap on if I only have seconds to spare. He was fascinated, I’m sure.

On scent: a review of Jo Malone Blackberry and Bay Cologne

Jo Malone Review Poutine and Prada

I love fragrance. I always have. I’m always burning scented candles at home, I love picking out a new body wash, and I have a small but well curated collection of perfumes that I love to wear. My favourite of the moment is something rather special that I treated myself to when Mr. P&P and I spent a few days in Calgary last spring. I’m talking about Jo Malone London Blackberry & Bay.
