2016 Favourites

2016 has definitely been a whirlwind of a year for many of us. Some of us are more than ready to get it over and done with, and others may have the best year of their lives. Regardless, I think it’s very important to reflect on everything that has happened as the year comes to a close; both the good and the ugly.

I certainly have had a mix of both high and low points this year, but in terms of my blogging life, I’ve had wonderful experiences this year. I’ve attracted a larger audience which motivated me to discover more products in order to deliver better content.

THE LEMON DIARIES | Products I Regret Buying

When it comes to buying makeup, I try very hard to make informed decisions on what I choose. Because of this, I end up really liking a vast majority of the products I purchase.

If you would like to learn more about some of the lemons in my collection, please keep reading.

Warm eye shadows have been incredibly popular for what seems like an eternity. People have been going gaga over rich, saturated shades of reds which would have made my 8th grade self filled with joy. So when Anastasia Beverly Hills announced that they were releasing the Modern Renaissance palette, I was all over it. The gorgeous pinks, reds, and neutrals looked so perfectly curated, I knew I had to have it. However, swatches and pretty shades aren’t enough to completely swoon me over. I put the palette to the test to see if its quality actually lives up to the hype, because what good is a pretty palette if it doesn’t perform, amirite?? If you would like to learn about my thoughts on this palette, please keep reading.
