This week the Beauty Blogger Top Ten Team is sharing our recommendations for Top 10 Foundations. Of course I had to select my favorite foundation formulas, offering a variety of coverage levels, that have options for pale skin tones in my Top 10 Foundations for Fair Skin. Marc Jacobs Re(marc)able Full Cover Foundation Concentrate in 10 Ivory Light - It is not often I come across a foundation shade that is too pale for me so if you are super pale you will love Re(marc)able in Ivory Light. This is such an incredible FULL

I have not been sharing enough looks with you lately. That is going to change! I think I was feeling in a bit of a rut since, because I work from home and live in a very rural area, I rarely leave the house or have occasion to do my makeup. Well screw it. I need to get back to having fun with creating looks beyond just utilitarian testing of products. Even if I'm not going anywhere. The Urban Decay Vice 4 Palette is a true inspiration to play so I'm sure this won't be the first look I share featuring these beautiful eyeshadows.
Today the Beauty Blogger Top Ten team is excited to share with you our Top 10 Fall 2015 Beauty Products and collections.

Some are limited edition so find them while you can. In no particular order: Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipsticks - Matte lipsticks have come a long way and the Revolution lipsticks from Charlotte Tilbury are a perfect example
Today the Beauty Blogger Top Ten Tuesday Team is sharing our picks for Top 10 Lipsticks for Fall. I love fall because I can break out all my beautiful plums and berries. I love all the vampier shades that come out but I find myself shying away from them most of the time and opting for more nude shades. This fall I am determined to have more fun with color! You can click through to the original reviews for more info and lip swatches. In no particular order: Maybelline COLORblur Lipstick in Plum Please Dior Rouge Dior
I have a few pieces to show you today from the August released Fall 2015 Collection as well as some new product launches hitting counters in September 2015.
There is a new range of 25 shades of Clarins Joli Rouge Lipstick ($27 CAD) coming in September 2015. Enriched with mango oil and salicornia extract, these lipsticks glide on smoothly with glossy pigment that lasts for hours and feel delightfully moisturizing. I find the texture and gentle gloss of this creamy formula makes lips look plumper and younger. I
I have always had dry and dehydrated skin. Having effective hydrating masks, that give me an intense boost of moisture and plumpness, at my disposal is necessary to keep my skin looking younger, fresher, and more comfortable. Here are some fabulous hydrating face masks that I have discovered. In no particular order: Clarins HydraQuench Cream-Mask ($36 US/CAD) This richly hydrating cream mask can even be applied to your eye contour area. It rehydrates skin in as little as 5 minutes. It absorbs quickly into the skin but never
The new Clarins Instant Light Lip Comfort Oil ($23 CAD) is a true decadence for lips. This lip treatment oil comes in two varieties. Honey and Raspberry. The tint is very, very sheer so you are opting more for a flavour preference than colour preference when deciding between the two. I have the Raspberry version to share with you today. The Clarins Instant Light Lip Comfort Oil is beautifully packaged. The short, squared bottle is clear to reveal the gorgeous tint of the oil. The cap and lettering are all in gold. The wand
I am having a bit of a beauty epiphany as of late. I have always brushed all these tinted balm releases aside without much interest or excitement but in the last few weeks I have discovered several new formulas and shades I not only like, but that I love. The new Clarins Instant Light Lip Balm Perfector ($23 US/$22 CAD) is one of them. The formula includes wild mango butter to protect against dehydration offering a comfortable and supple feel. Shea butter nourishes and protects and gives the balms a smooth creamy finish. The
The limited edition Clarins Garden Escape 6-Colour Eye Palette ($44 CAD) is a perfect representation of spring beauty. Garden inspired hues in satin and pearl finishes that give eyes a soft watercolour effect of gentle colour. Smooth and easy to blend these shadows are a pleasure to work with. The shadows are embossed with lovely spring garden inspired details that carry through from one pan to another. It made it hard to break down and disturb the beautiful pattern. The palette is gold toned with a diamond pattern and
This week the Beauty Blogger Top Ten team is sharing our Top 10 Beauty Products of 2014. Rather than selecting Limited Edition favourites or new shades I am choosing to focus on completely new product launches that were added to brand's permanent product lineup. NARS Audacious Lipstick ($32 US/$37 CAD) Stunning shades and incredible pigmentation combined with a fabulous formula make this new lipstick formula from NARS a huge hit for me. Anita is next on my list! Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush ($35 US/$41 CAD) I was so
Cold, harsh winter weather and dry indoor heating can wreak havoc on our skin. Even people who don't normally suffer from dryness can find themselves needing extra hydration in the winter. Those of use, like myself, who experience dryness year round can find themselves desperate for products that will effectively moisturize our skin and provide comfort, relief, and even protection this time of year. I have thrown together a list of some great products you can turn to to combat winter dryness. Kiehl's Hydro-Plumping
