Venus Embrace: Gillette's first razor with 5 blades, you can't miss a hair with that many blades, this razor definitely leaves legs smooth & all you need is one stroke. Package comes with one razor, two refill cartridges, & a shower pod (has suction cups which stays put in the shower). Retails for approx. $15.99 at most food, drug, grocery, and mass merchandise stores. Available in two colors: purple & turquoise. Would repurchase!Venus Spa Breeze: 2-in-1 Razor with shaving gel bars. I thought this was an interesting idea, cut out the need for a seperate shaving gel/cream. This is a 3 blade razor & works just as well as the above razor with 5 blades, I must add that my hair is not that thick so this is probably why it worked just as well. I love the scent of these razors! The website labels the scent as white-tea but it just smelled floral to me. It took me a while to get used to the built in shaving gel bars & would use shaving gel beforehand because I'm so used to it. Comes with one razor & two refill cartridges & compact for storage. Retails for approx. $12.99 & available at food, drug, and mass merchandise stores. There is also the disposable razor option with a tropical scented handle if you don't want to be buying refill cartridges.
SatinCare Lavender Shave Gel: I loved this shaving gel!! Gel foams into a creamy lather & I love lavender so this gel was perfect for me. Also available in 6 other scents! Retails for approx. $3.99
*All prices are in Canadian dollars.

My standards: medium coverage, creamy, skin looks hydrated & not powdery dry/flaky.
Review: shade-210 Natural (for reference I wear Cendre(shell)30 in Chanel, NC30 in MAC, MUFE HD in 118 or 120)
This is a thick & creamy, medium coverage foundation, and all you really need is about a pea size amount for your whole face as it spreads quite well & evenly. I just use my fingers as means of application. It lasts all day which is important for me, especially when working on flights longer than 10 hours:) (if you haven't read my past posts I'm a Flight Attendant) Also, I have combo/dehydrated skin so I wouldn't recommend this for oily gals as it leaves my skin moisturized & glowy.
Product dispenser: Plastic, hygienic pump. With each pump the product diminishes (obviously) but because the bottle is clear you can actually see how much product you have left because the pumping mechanism goes up with usage.
What Emani's website claims: "Entirely talc-free, Paraban-free, non-comedogenic, pore-friendly, vegan-friendly", "Treatment & color in one, a mineral-based liquid foundation infused with a luxurious blend of hyaluronic acid, vitamin A and jojoba oils that balance & maintain the moisture of your skin."
Rating:9/10 I would repurchase again because I like the finish & that its paraban-free (although not all my makeup is paraban-free if I can get a product that is I'd prefer it)
Available at Pharma Plus/Rexall. Price $30+ (aprox.)
Applied to the back of my hand

You don't have to spend a fortune to look fabulous! The warmer season also allows you to spend a little less on footwear because you won't be treking in harsher weather. Its also a great opportunity to throw in some colour to your wardrobe without breaking the bank. I'll be honest I think I've only purchased a pair of shoes at Payless once but I happened to come across their site & saw these cute shoes that I couldn't resist posting about it. I'll definetly pop into Payless next time I'm at the mall.
