These are a few makeup products that I've completely used up. I'll give my mini reviews of these and tell you if I would repurchase them. I love seeing what products people have completely finished. It's also satisfying to me to finish a makeup product since I usually don't use them up as fast as say bath and body products.

Bobbi Brown Natural Brow Shaper & Hair Touch Up in Mahogany - I loved this product! It is expensive but I think it's worth it because it worked great. I used it as a brow gel. I never tried it in my hair. It leaves a nice amount of colour in your brows and doesn't make them look hard after it dries. I just tried a L'oreal brow gel because I wanted to save money but I'd rather buy this one again because I really didn't like the L'oreal one. I also really like the small size of this product because it's great for on the go.

Would I repurchase: Yes

Urban Decay All Nighter Long-Lasting Makeup Setting Spray - Again I love this product! I have been using this for over two years now. I find it does work really well at making my makeup last. If I know I want my makeup to last all day then I have to use this product. And the bottle lasts a really long time which is great since it's expensive.

Would I repurchase: Yes

Nars Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer in Finland - I really like this product in the summer time. It gives light coverage and feels really comfortable on the skin. I am currently on my second tube of this but I haven't been using it since it's winter now. I have a few other foundations to use up so I don't think I will be buying this again soon but I would consider it in the future.

Would I repurchase: No

Maybelline SuperStay Better Skin concealer in light - I really liked this concealer while I was using it. It has nice coverage and blends easily. It's great for everyday since it's not too heavy. Unfortunately the packaging broke but luckily I had finished using it up first. Again I would definitely consider buying this again after I finish up some other concealers that I have. I love the price point too since it's from the drugstore.

Would I repurchase: No

MAC Cosmetics Prep + Prime Skin - I thought this primer was just okay. It's a moisturizing primer so it did feel really nice on the skin but I wasn't in love with it. I usually prefer a smoothing or blurring primer instead. I'm glad I got to try this little sample though because now I know I shouldn't be buying the full size.

Would I repurchase: No

Denim Style Inspiration

I am really loving these denim looks right now. I can't wait to wear my denim jacket once again when spring comes. The double denim or "Canadian tuxedo" look is a classic but looks fresh here with the similar washes and patchwork embellishments.

Dear Santa 2016

I've been sharing my wishlists here since 2010 and my Christmas wishlists since 2011. Since then I've mostly been wanting the same things. I still love everything on my first wishlist. This time I just have a few key items. Clockwise from top left:

Chanel mini brush set - This is the perfect little brush set for travel or even to throw in your purse. I've actually never tried anything from the Chanel cosmetics line before and I'm super curious.

Giorgio Armani Beauty Lip Magnet liquid lipstick - These are one of the newest liquid lipsticks on the market and this mauve colour looks perfect for everyday during the winter. Again I've never tried anything from this beauty range and I would love to try it.

Stuart Weitzman Nudist sandals - I've had these shoes on my wishlist since 2014. I had been wanting the Saint Laurent Jane sandals that look just like these prior to that but these are cheaper so...lol

Louis Vuitton monogram mini pochette accessoires - Surprisingly I don't want a new bag for Christmas! This little pouch will be the perfect companion to the bags I already own.

What's on your Christmas wishlist?
