30 Dollar Face Look

The $30 Face Makeup Look | Makeup Wars

This week the Makeup Wars team has been challenged with creating an entire makeup look with products that total under $30! I can't wait to see the $30 Face Makeup Look that everyone comes up with and what their favourite budget products are. This challenge was really tough for me. Firstly I'm a bit of a luxe lover when it comes to makeup, and secondly, being in Canada $30 doesn't go near as far as it does in the US! This just goes to show you that you don't have to break the bank to get a complete makeup look. I think this would

They can of course be applied on there own for a quick and budge-proof eye look.

Makeup Wars | My 6 Favorite Nude Lipsticks and Lipglosses

This week the Makeup Wars team is sharing with you our favourite nude lip products. I rarely used to wear a "nude" lip but in the past few years I've grown increasingly fond of it. Concealer lips are a look I will never go for, nor understand. Egads! Everyone's definition of nude differs, especially depending on their skin tone, but here are some long standing favourites and newer loves that I consider nude. 1) Giorgio Armani Rouge d'Armani #102 Gloss d'Armani lipsticks are one of my favourite lipstick formulas. Hydrating and

Makeup Wars Spring Blush1

Makeup Wars | My Favourite Spring/Summer Blushes Featuring YSL Babydoll Kiss & Blush, shu uemura Tint in Gelato Reviews & More

When spring comes I tend to turn to sheerer foundations and tinted moisturizers with natural dewy finishes. This brings with it the transition to cream blushes and cheek stains. Products that look more natural in the harsh (and so desperately yearned for) rays of the sun and more resistant to hotter, more humid, weather. Bring it on! Here are some new and old favourites I will be turning to this spring and summer. The new Yves Saint Laurent Babydoll Kiss & Blush ($45 CAD/$40 US) has a light airy mousse texture that blends

Cream Blush Lover or Fearer – Here are Some New Cream Cheek Products to Try

I love cream blush product for their natural quality. A good cream blush will melt into the skin looking completely natural and part of you. Cream blushes have come a long way from the thick, tacky, sticky products of past decades. If you have always been nervous about trying a cream cheek product and worried about being able to apply and blend properly then now is the time to finally try them. With the light, silky, blendable versions available now application is made easy. Heck, you can even apply most of these with a brush and

Top Ten Primers

Beauty Blogger Top Ten Tuesday | Top 10 Primers

This week the Beauty Blogger Top Ten team is focusing on primers. I don't think I recall a time when there has been such an onslaught of new primer releases. Most of these being blurring/pore refining primers. I thought I would share with you ten that, with the exception of my professional kit staple Benefit POREfessional, are all new to the market. I have divided them into categories to make things a little more coherent.

Skincare that Performs as a Primer  - Who doesn't love a product that pulls double

Maybelline The Elixer1

Maybelline Color Elixir Lip Color in Celestial Coral and Glistening Amber | Photos, Swatches, Review

Maybelline recently released the Color Elixir by Color Sensational Lip Colors ($10.99 CAD/$8.99 US) in 20 beautiful shades. I have Celestial Coral and Glistening Amber to share with you today. Celestial Coral is more of a bright warm pink than a coral. It does not contain shimmer. Glistening Amber is a pale warm nude with fine shimmer. Both shades offer a nice amount of pigment with a glossy translucent finish. The packaging is really fun as the compartment for the liquid lip colour is shaped like a lipstick bullet. I love

The first step is to apply a complexion product that you can apply and blend in quickly with your hands. One that doesn't involve any "work" to

How I Transition My Makeup From Summer to Fall – Fashion Magazine Beauty Panel

This week's Fashion Magazine Beauty Panel challenge was how we transition our looks from Summer to Fall. It's hard to believe that the leaves are already starting to fall and autumn is around the corner. When it comes to transitioning my look from summer to fall my favourite thing to do is to find new fall collections that will carry me right through from summer until winter. With Fall collections hitting counters as early as August it's nice to be able to put our new purchases for the next season to use right away like the

Top 10 Tuesdays Top 10 Under 10

This week for Top 10 Tuesdays we are sharing our top ten favourite products that are under $10. Now being in Canada it's a little harder to find items under $10! I may have  cheated a little as some of these may actually not have an SRP under $10 but depending on the store, and possibly sale, you can certainly pick them each up for under ten dollars! I guess I could have made things really easy and chosen a bunch of nail polishes but I thought of that after I'd already prepared my image! Products are all linked to their

Top Ten Tuesday Gold Favorites

This week some of your favorite beauty bloggers are sharing their Top Ten Gold products. I don't have many gold products as I find yellow gold doesn't compliment my colouring very well. I absolutely adore the look of antique gold though and I'm anxious to go on a shopping spree for some antique gold shades to embrace the antique gold trend for Fall 2013. Here are some of my most used and loved gold products ranging from white gold, to yellow gold, all the way to the far green extreme of antique gold with Aztec Gold from Fyrinnae.
