Clinique: Year of the Ox Cheek Pop Highlighter Review

This product is the cutest makeup item I’ve ever seen! The minute I saw this glittery, gold ox highlighter I knew I needed it in my life. This product was released as a limited edition item for Lunar New Year 2021. Clinique released a limited edition Lunar New Year highlight last year too. Though, 2020 was the year of the rat, so it wasn’t quite as endearing. But, the ox – this little guy is adorable to the freakin’ max! Let’s bust this product open and see if it pops like fireworks on Lunar New Year!

Urban Decay: Born to Run Palette Review

I’ve wanted the Born to Run palette since its release last year. The wanderlust design spoke to me on a spiritual level but Born to Run reminded me a lot of the old Vice palettes Urban Decay used to release. I own several of the Vice palettes and I rarely use them. I decided I wouldn’t use Born to Run enough to justify the $64.00 CAD price tag…then it went on sale! The price dropped to $39.00 CAD at Sephora so I decided to indulge my desire to own this travel themed palette. Let’s see how Born to Run performs!
