Is it worth the price? Yes, you're getting in total 0.64 oz of product for all 4 lipsticks and paying $4 USD ($7 CAD) more. You also get to try out 4 shades by paying slightly more, so I think this set is definitely worth it.

Sephora Employee Appreciation 2015

Sephora Employee Appreciation Sale (20% off) dates have been announced: October 16th to October 28th 2015
Online coupon code: You must know a Sephora employee to be able to get an online code that can be used once between those dates. If you don't know anyone who works at Sephora, then you can try finding someone on Makeupsocial, Twitter or Instagram. I personally find it's easier to find someone on Makeupsocial because some employees are willing to share their code and you simply need to give them your email. Just search for "sephora employee appreciation" and you will find a couple of posts there.

BH Cosmetics Carli Bybel Palette + Giveaway

Carli Bybel palette is currently soldout on BH Cosmetics website. I pre-ordered it on launch date and received it few days ago. I paid $12.50 plus shipping ($7.55 for Canada). You can watch my video for swatches, demo and my first impressions. I'm also giving a palette and the giveaway will end on October 25th 2015 at 11:45 PM EST and it's open worldwide. Watch the video for more details on how to enter:
I really like the palette. I don't think I've seen a white palette before. It comes with 10 eyeshadows (5 shimmer and 5 matte) and 4 highlighters. It contains 47.6 g of product.
I love how there are matte and shimmer eyeshadows but I do wish there was a black shadow. As for highlighters, I find there is at least one that will complement almost all skin tones. The first one on the left would look great on someone with a lighter complexion, while the last one on the right would complement someone with a deeper skin tones. My personal favorite is the second one from the left.

Here are swatches of eyeshadows from the first row (with and without flash).

Overall Impression
Overall, I think the quality of eyeshadows is pretty good especially for the price. Some eyeshadows are more pigmented than others and some shades didn't really work for me. However, I'm really liking the highlighters. I don't really have any highlighters with these shades, so I think it's totally worth it for me personally. I doubt I will use all of the shades but I'm still happy I got it.

IMATS Toronto 2015 Vlog

This was my first time going to IMATS! My best friends and I reached Toronto Friday late night and we barely had any sleep on IMATS day. Although we didn't have too much energy to shop, we still managed to score few deals from MAC (20%), Benefit Cosmetics (35), NYX (20%) and Make Up For Ever (40%). The line for Morphe Brushes was way too long!!!
