Top 10 Lipsticks for Fall 2015 | Beauty Blogger Top Ten Tuesdays

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

NARS Fall 2015 Collection Review and Swatches

I can't believe we are sharing Fall 2015 Collections already. I have been enjoying this summer more than most I can remember in recent history. The weather has been incredible and we have been taking full advantage of it. At the same time I find myself latching on to the new fall clothing and makeup releases with much more anticipation and excitement than usual. Normally I would never start investing in a Fall wardrobe at the beginning of August but I've already been going a little crazy. I really am excited about fall. Today I

NARS Dual Intensity Blush and Eye Shadow Review and Look

Recently, after the success of the NARS Dual-Intesity Eyeshadows, NARS released their new NARS Dual Intensity Blush duos. I actually had yet to try the NARS Dual-Intensity Eye Shadow formula so I took the opportunity to test out both and create a look. The shade of blush I tested was the NARS Dual-Intestity Blush ($45 US/$52 CAD) in Frenzy. Certainly not an optimal shade combination for a fair cool-neutral skin tone but I was not disappointed with the formula. The colour description for Frenzy is "sparkling soft pink-gold

Top 10 Red Lipsticks | Beauty Blogger Top Ten Tuesday

This week the Beauty Blogger Top Ten Tuesday team is sharing Top 10 Reds. I opted to go for Top Ten Red Lipsticks. I love a gorgeous red. Unfortunately I lack the confidence to wear one out of the house. I just feel like I have a spotlight on my lips saying "Hey you! Look at me!". Plus I find my mouth area in general not one I want to draw attention to. I wish I had the nerve because there is just something about a stunning red against fair skin and blue eyes that looks breathtaking. Just not on me! In no particular

NARS Spring 2015 Colour Collection Review, Photos, Swatches

The NARS Spring 2015 Colour Collection is a well edited collection of only 7 pieces. The collection features Tilda Swinton in the second of four ‘Portraits by The Artist’, a seasonal series of acts created by NARS Founder and Creative Director François Nars. Act 2, for Spring 2015, is a nude scene – daring, baring, anything but neutral. Disrobed tones in spectral effects expose a new natural state. The look begins with a provocative pink shimmer on cheeks. The barely-there effect extends to eyes, where a bold beige base

NARS Barents Sea with Yves Saint Laurent Nuit Blanche = Stunning Nails

I am obsessed with this nail combo. I have been in love with the Yves Saint Laurent Nuit Blanche La Laque Couture from the YSL Spring 2015 Collection. I have been having so much fun seeing the gorgeous effects this polish gives over different nail colours. Nuit Blanche is a clear base very densely packed with iridescent micro-shimmer and iridescent flake shimmers of various sizes. It is so incredibly pretty. Yesterday I painted my nails with two coats of NARS Barent Sea from the NARS Holiday 2014 Collection after applying NARS
