I am going to only have 3.5 days to sightsee as much as I can and of course shop til I drop!! I have made an iteniary and a map lol to make the most out of these days! There are just so many places to see and so many things to do that I know I will have to make another trip! Can you tell I am excited....enough exclamation marks??

Anyways, I wont go on and on, but I will be buying lots of things and taking tons of pictures so if anyone is interested id be happy to do a post with pics and details of my trip!!

Get ready big apple, here I come!!

MsCuppyCakes.com

Hey everyone!

So I wanted to do this post about MsCuppyCakes.com, as I ordered from then ages ago, approx 6-8 months and it has really been an ongoing struggle. Now before I start, I would like to say that I am not trying to bash the website or any of the people that run it, I just think that people deserve to hear the good and the bad about things. Unfortunately, my experience was negative.
I received my order about 2 months after I ordered, which I understand because they did say to expect delivery delays. When I got my order, everything looked great, except the nyx daydream of Molokai bronzer (11.00 USD). It wasn't properly packaged at all, and likely had smashed, banging into the other products during delivery. I was really looking forward to this bronzer, and so I decided to contact the customer service and tell them about my broken bronzer. They were very nice and asked that I show them photos of the broken bronzer. I obliged and send them several photos of the bronzer. They then emailed back and said thank you, we will be sending you a new bronzer the next business day. Now I waited 2 months, and still had not received anything, so I emailed them and they had no idea who I was. So I resent all the photos and the details of my order. They then said that they would send me a new replacement again. Another 2 months later and still nothing, this time they did know who I was and said sorry, what was your address again? So I again gave them address and they said they would ship immediately. Well I still have not received a bronzer! I emailed them about a month ago, and said that I give up, they clearly had no intention of ever sending me a new bronzer. Now some of you may think this is silly, and its not worth fighting over 11 dollars, but it wasn't the money its the fact that they didn't follow through and ignored my emails, all the while promising to send me a replacement. This to me is just bad customer service, and I definitely will not be ordering from this website again.

Take from this information what you will, but keep in mind that if they treated me this way, who is to say they wouldn't treat you this way?

Hope this was helpful!

I'm Back finally!

Hey guys! So I know it has been about a hundred years since I have made a post! but I do have lots of good excuses...which I wont bore you with (hehe)...regardless I have missed blogging terribly!

I have also stopped making youtube videos for the time being, It just isnt something that I can fit into my schedule right now, so I have decided to return to blogging! I have lots of hauls and reviews coming up! I am also doing a swap with beautymarked19, the lovely SOPHIE from the UK.

Currently I am on spring break, and couldn't be happier as I truly needed the break! Something to look forward to is my trip to New York City on April 29th!!! My mom is taking me as my university graduation present! I couldnt be more excited! I will have lots of pictures and a huge haul I am sure, as well as many stories to share! Let me know in the comments below, if you have been to NYC before, and if you have what are the things I must see and do?!! Also let me know if there is anything I should pick up in my travels to bring back and share with you guys!

I want to do a quick products I am loving right now! As most of you know the Mac liberty of london collection came out and I got the shell beauty powder and I truly do love it! It is an amazing colour! I also really like the lipstick in Everhip!

I have also changed my skincare routine to Cetaphil cleanser and moisturizer. So here is 1.5 months without a break out! I normally breakout hormonally on my chin, and so far no spots! So I am really happy with that, and I may do a more formal review on the products I am using for skincare, and post pictures as well!

Well I dont want to ramble on too much in this post, but I just wanted to say a hello! and please look out for more posts!!

Update

Hey guys, so this is just an update on the my life and the clean and clear blackhead eraser. Okay so as far as having less blackheads, I dont think it really does this. It is a great exfoliator and really makes your skin feel squeaky clean, but as for getting rid of blackheads..not so much. So I am glas I got this product on sale for $10CAD I may have been more disappointed if I had payed the full price. So I will keep it and use it once or twice a week as an exfoliator, however at the moment I dont think I will be purchasing anymore of the refill pads. I have lots left so we will see how it goes. Hope that helps, and let me know if any of you have tried this product, or what you think about it.

As for life, I will be purchasing an item or two from the colourcraft collection, so far im really only interested in the colourcrafted lipstick and the naked honey skin salve. I will be making a video on my haul, once i get the package in the mail. I also uploaded my first video yesterday, on the products I can't live without so if you havent gone and checked it out please do! Remember to comment, rate and of course subscribe!

Bye for now ~ Meagen

Products I can't live without!

Okay so hollymae20 did a video on this, and I thought it was a really good idea so I thought I would share with you guys, the products that I can't live without. So let's get started!

Hair:
I almost always do my hair curly or scrunched because my hair is naturally wavy, and straightening it everyday is hard on it. So I use Herbal Essences Totally Twisted Curl Boosting Mousse and Aussie Sprunch catch the wave hairspray. The combination of these two products is amazing! I strongly recommend these two products, especially if you have wavy or curly hair. Using these two products I towel dry my hair and then apply the mousse to my hair with my head upside down, scrunching my hair and then I spray the Aussie sprunch on the curls and scrunch again. Then I let my hair air dry and I am left with nicely defined curls.

Skincare:
Marcelle Oil free multi-defense lotion, its a daily moisturizer with spf 15, its just really light and nice to wear daily under makeup.
Roc Dermatologic purif-ac Fast action gel is the best product I have found for treating spots and blemishes, it works really fast too. It is about $20CAD
In terms of facewash I usually use Neutrogena products, right now I am using their Pink Grapefruit facial cleanser and it works good and smells amazing, great for early mornings!

Body:
Olay Bodywash and tone enriching ribbons in deep moisture and mineral shimmer gives your body an all over glow and is super moisturizing.
Victoria Secrets Beauty Rush Coconut Craze body drink lotion it smells amazing and leaves your legs silky smooth, literally.

Makeup:
Boing industrial strength concealer in 02 by Benefit. This works really well for full coverage.
Loreal Bare Naturale gentle mineral makeup with spf 19. This is great for summer, its a really light coverage and helps control shine as well.
Hoola bronzer by Benefit
Well dressed powder blush by Mac in well dressed
Maybelline lash stiletto for day and Loreal Carbon black voluminous for nights out.
Gosh waterproof eyeshadow in love that beige its a really nice highlight and eyeshadows stick to it really well, so it can be used as a primer.
Any brow product as my brows are definately unruly! Right now I am using Revlon Brow Fantasy in Dark Blonde. I really like this product and I talked about it in a previous blog.
Lipsticks: I love Gosh Darling lipstick its a wearable nude and is great for everyday. Another great alternative is Revlon super lustrous lipstick creme in 613- Just enough buff. Both are really moisturizing.

In order to wear a nude lip you need smooth exfoliated lips, I picked up this product from shoppers drugmart for $20CAD and its Lise Watier Sensational kiss lip so soft exfoliating balm. This product is great you apply it and then rub your lips together to exfoliate and then the beads disappear and you are left with a gloss on your lips which I normally leave on and apply my lipstick on top of it.

So those are all the products that I can't live without! Let me know if you want any reviews or pictures of the products and I will post them. Also if you have any questions about any of the products dont hesitate to leave a comment.

Thanks guys! bye for now~ meagen
