On this day I liked my makeup…and so, a post!

Happy New Year, beauties! Even though it’s snowy and cold in my part of the world, I decided to go with a summery look the other day, choosing bronzes and corals. It was a nice change, and I was actually quite pleased with the results so finally I have a post I can share!

The colour I chose for my lips was See Sheer by MAC, a long-time favourite. It is to me a nice change from the dark vampy colours and bright pinks I typically sport during this season.

Ah, Lipgloss, How I Neglect Thee

Ah, lipgloss. Probably the most neglected items in my collection as a result of my obsession with lipstick, blush, bronzer…and so on. But the other day while looking for a lipstick, a gloss did grab my attention. It was bright, it was reddish pink and right up my alley. So wear it I did, and I was a happy mama that day. And since that day, this gloss is the sole gloss that it’s in my ‘most used’ products.

The gloss in question is Bite Beauty’s Garnet*, a beautiful reddish pink that packs a punch of high gloss goodness. Read more

The Case for Wearing Red Lipstick This Holiday Season

Can we talk about one of my favourite subjects again ladies? Red lipstick. Yes, I know I previously said you are either a red lipstick girl or not. But I’m going to try and make a case that this season, you should try red — even if it’s just a teeny tiny amount. It’s such a happy and festive colour, and if there’s one time of year, you should try to wear it, it’s now!

You have so many formulations to choose from these days, from sheer lip gloss like Bobbi Brown’s new limited Edition Red lipgloss* or a full-on retro matte lipstick like MAC’s Russian Red. So there is no excuse right? Read more

To the Rescue! Kiehl’s and Maybelline

Baby, it’s cold outside. At least in my part of the world it is. And it’s only the beginning. In this weather, my skin and lips react by getting dry. Super dry.  Two products that have come to the rescue for me are: Kiehl’s Skin Rescuer and Maybelline Baby Lips Dr. Rescue.

First, let’s talk Baby Lips. I’ve been a big fan of these since they came out. I use them daily. I thought the Baby Lips Neon were my favourite but Dr. Rescue might just surpass it.  These just launched, but I was to get samples a couple of weeks ago. According to Maybelline, in one minute, Dr.Rescue will soothe lips, in one day, it will smooth and in one week, your lips will be renewed.  It comes in six neutral tints but I’ve thoroughly enjoyed wearing the clear one under lipstick and gloss. I also enjoy putting it on before bed. It certainly does soothe and my lips are far from chapped, which is a miracle given how my lips normally react to this weather (brrrrr!).
