Five Friday Faves #3

This product gets a BEE Shopping recommendation from AngelaBeeSince these are favourites, you can assume they are all BEE Shopping rated.  


Eye Liner  Mary Kay Gel Liner in Black once set will stay on all day without smudging or fading.  The brush that comes with the liner might look super small, but it’s just the right size to get up close to your lash line so no skin colouring shows between your liner and your lashes.  Depending on which way you hold the brush you can get a thin or thick line.  You’ll need an eye makeup remover (I suggest Mary Kay’s) at the end of the day to clean this off.  This is my second jar.  Keep the lid on tight after each use so it doesn’t dry out.  You can also store it upside down which sometimes help.

Blush or Palette  Benefit Cosmetics Hervana Boxed Blush was a great find one day while I was at Shopper’s Drug Mart.  It was half price!  Each colour in the swirl has its own name Lucky Shell, Divine Peach, Heavenly Rose and Berry Delight.  Together these give you a flush of colour.  It’s just a touch darker than my skin tone as you can (barely) see with the swatch at the bottom of the photo.  I would recommend this colour for those with light to medium skin tones.  Suitable for an everyday blush, for work or play.


Fragrance  Marc Jacobs Honey:  First of all, I love bees so this bottle is amazing.  Luckily when I tried the perfume at Sephora it smelled as good as the packaging looked.  I then spotted this smaller size at Marshall’s for a ridiculously low price so I had to snap it up.  So far I’ve been only wearing it sparingly but with the Christmas season starting and more get togethers, I plan to wear it more often.

Top Note – Pear, Juicy Mandarin; Mid Note – Orange Blossom, Peach Nectar, Apricot, Honeysuckle; Base Note – Honey, Golden Vanilla, Smooth Woods


Home Decor and Scents  
Partylite Cashmere Diffuser Sticks have “creamy wood notes and spices”.  These give off fragrance for about 30 days.  To make mine last longer I bend them in half so it looks like I have two sticks on display.  This is my bedroom scent (yes, I have different ones for the living room, kitchen, and bathroom).


2015-11-17 18.17.53Book or Magazine Canada’s History Magazine is a work favourite of mine.  We have a subscription at Backus-Page House Museum and currently I’m a bit behind on reading, but I’ll catch up over the winter.  Every issue has many well written articles that make me think, brainstorm, and add what I’ve read to different projects and programs I’m working on at the museum.  You don’t need to be working in the history sector.  If you are a history enthusiast at all, you’ll enjoy this magazine.
