Pat McGrath Labs – Lust 004 Lipstick

As much as I was incredibly excited to try out a new product from such a legendary makeup artist, I have to say that I was also really excited to get my hands on the Pat McGrath Labs Lust 004 Lipstick ($30) so I could play with the sequins – always a child at heart. Aside from the amazing packaging, I absolutely love the quality of this lipstick!

Monthly Favourites – July 2016

The end of July means we’re starting to approach the end of summer in Canada. For me, it’s actually quite exciting because fall is definitely my favourite season but for now, lets recap the products I love during the height of the Canadian summer:

NUDESTIX – Skin Glossing Pencil

I’m a total sucker for a good multitasking product. With so many different beauty bits to choose from, it’s nice to be able to check off multiple boxes with one product. One of my favourites at the moment is the NUDESTIX Skin Glossing Pencil ($28) to add radiance to my cheeks, lips and eyes.

Tarte x Grav3yardgirl Swap Queen Palette & New Sephora Opening

Happy Friday everyone! Yesterday I went to the opening of the new Sephora store at Yonge & Eglinton (in Toronto). I live in the area and I also grew up in the area so the fact there is now a Sephora steps away from my couch is incredibly exciting (and dangerous for my bank account).

Urban Decay – Vice Lipsticks

When a beauty brand announces that they are launching 100 new and reformulated lipstick shades – makeup lovers from around the globe perk up and come to attention. With so many colours to choose from in six different formulas, I had to get my hands on the Urban Decay Vice Lipsticks ($21) the second I could.

NUDESTIX & Love Is Louder

Makeup and beauty is incredibly fun. There’s an excitement to playing around with different products, allowing you harness your creativity. That being said, it is incredibly special when a brand goes above and beyond products to start a conversation about important social issues.

Lippies, Love and Lattes with NUDESTIX

As regular readers of my blog or Instagram and Twitter followers will know, I LOVE a good NUDESTIX product. Last Thursday, the fantastic NUDESTIX team was gracious enough to invite me to a press brunch to get the low down on all the cool products and campaigns they have coming up.

NUDESTIX Intense Matte Lip + Cheek Pencils

I get extremely excited when there’s a new NUDESTIX launch. I’m a huge fan of the brand and I have an obsession with matte lips – so the new Intense Matte Lip + Cheek Pencils ($28) are the perfect launch for me.

Monthly Favourites – February 2016

With my collection of beauty products getting bigger and bigger each day, sometimes it’s nice to take a little buying break and “shop” my current collection. February was all about searching through the products that have fallen by the wayside over the past few months.

Monthly Favourites – January 2016

A new year, a new round of favourites. Admittedly, some of the products/brands were 2015 discoveries but these were definitely all daily products for me in January.

Charlotte Tilbury – Matte Revolution Love Liberty

Every Autumn/Winter one new dark/berry lipstick becomes my go-to colour for the seasons. For 2015, it has definitely been the Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution lipstick in Love Liberty ($38).

MAC – Ellie Goulding

The second I saw MAC’s Ellie Goulding collection I was sold. The neutral colours, the bronze glow and the chic packaging all from my current music obsession – perfect!

It was my birthday last month and my boyfriend decided to cash out my Sephora online shopping cart as part of my gift – I always fill my cart with every item I'm even remotely interested in so this was an amazing gift!

Here are a few things I loved in October.

Maybelline Lip Studio Color Blur - Ombre Lips

This whole ombre lip trend has been all over Instagram and the Maybelline Lip Studio Color Blur ($12) has been the go-to product for achieving the look. I love a good drug store lip product, and Maybelline makes some of the best, so I had to give this a whirl.
