Today I am excited to share with you my Khaki Eyeshadow Collection. I was tempted to do bronze, and still will at a later date, but opted instead for one of my favourite fall colours; Khaki. Khaki is described as a dull brownish-yellow but it is much more beautiful than it's description. Shades range from khaki browns, to khaki greens, and even khaki greys. I love the shades because they are a great twist on a neutral, looks great with every eye colour, and you can create such beautiful and interesting smoky eye looks with them.

While the temperature and leaves on the trees are telling me it happened a while ago, the calendar says today is the first day of Fall! I love fall. While it makes me sad to bid farewell to summer the crisp, cool, sunny days of fall are my favourite. Today some of your favourite bloggers are sharing their picks for Top Ten Fall 2014 Beauty Products for Beauty Blogger Top Ten Tuesday. With Holiday releases already creeping into the picture it's time to focus our attention on some of the products released for Fall 2014 that I have
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

This week the Beauty Blogger Top Ten Tuesday Team is sharing out Top 10 Beauty Timesavers. Those products you turn to when the clock is ticking and you need things done fast. In no particular order: Skincare/Sunscreen/Coverage in One Products - When I'm in a hurry I love applying a BB Cream with sunscreen that offers skincare benefits, hydration, adequate sun protection, and enough coverage to make me feel more polished. Some of my favourites are the Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream SPF 30 and Clarins BB Skin Perfecting
I have expressed my love for the Maybelline Color Tattoo 24hr Eyeshadows before. I love using cream eyeshadows as a base for my eye looks to ensure all day wear and intense colour payoff and these affordably priced options from Maybelline give me the opportunity to have a huge assortment of beautiful colours at my disposal. They can of course be applied on there own for a quick and budge-proof eye look. Rich leather textures were big on the runways for F/W'14 and Maybelline has embraced this trend in beauty with a new line of
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
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
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
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 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
