Yves Saint Laurent Cuirs Fétiches Collection for Fall 2014 Collector Palette Fétiche| Photos, Swatches, Review

Yves Saint Laurent is taking an edgier approach with their Fall 2014 Cuirs Fétiches Collection. Think rocker chic. Sensual and rebellious. From the burnished tones to the varying textures and finishes this collection perfectly expresses the juxtaposition of leather in all its versions. "I am fascinated by the incredible depths of colour and texture of this noble material. And particularly by its different textured finishes: weathered, polished, grained, burnished… I wanted to explore the variations of leather in one

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

Top 10 Nail Polishes for Spring/Summer | Beauty Blogger Top Ten Tuesday

This week's Beauty Blogger Top Ten Tuesday is focused on our top picks for Spring/Summer Nail Colours. I was surprised how tricky I found this. I wanted to only include colours that appeared to still be easily available as not to tempt you with discontinued products. With so many beautiful shades to choose from I selected the ones I reach for most often. For my pedicures this tends to be really bright, fun shades for summer. For my nails I tend to go a little more subdued. So without further ado. Here we go! For

Peach Coral Lips

Makeup Wars | Favourite Peach and Coral Lip Products

Today the Makeup Wars beauty bloggers are sharing with you some of our favourite peach and coral lip products. Breaking out these pretty shades is one of the best parts of spring! While pinks are something that you can pull off year round there is something about coral that just doesn't seem to fit with colder weather. We tend to save them (particularly the more vibrant shades) until the warmer weather hits. Many of my all time favourites were unfortunately limited edition releases, and I didn't want to tempt you with no longer

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

Makeup Wars | My Favourite Highlighters and Illuminating Products

This week the Makeup Wars members are sharing our favourite illuminating products. This is probably one of my favourite cosmetics categories for two reasons. Firstly I have very dry, dull skin and I need a lot of assistance in the glow department. Secondly I am very picky when it comes to products in this category so finding the right product is always a struggle for me. I guess I kind of enjoy the challenge and the subsequent joy and satisfaction of finding a product that meets my expectations. Why am I so picky? Well when it

Whether it be a regular mani, glitter, or LED gels I almost always end up picking off my polish rather than removing

Yves Saint Laurent La Laque Couture Spring 2014 Nail Lacquers in Roes Scabiosa and Rouge Pablo | Photos, Swatches, Review

Yves Saint Laurent La Laque Couture Nail Lacquer ($27 CAD) is without a question one of the best nail polish formulas out there. I have never tried a shade that wasn't perfection. Even coverage, fast drying, super glossy finish, lovely tapered brush, and incredible ease of application. The limited edition 48 Rose Scabiosa and newly permanent 49 Rouge Pablo from the YSL Spring 2014 Flower Crush Collection are just two more shades to add to this roster perfection. Rose Scabiosa is a lovely pale cool pink. Not the kind of shade I

The Yves Saint Laurent Spring 2014 Collection brings us many new lip products to swoon over. One of the (many) things YSL excels at is lip products. Some of my all time favourite lip formulas are from the brand. I have three new lip products from the Spring collection to show you. Two of the four new permanent shades of Rouge Volupté lipstick, N° 31 Fuchsia Tourbillon/Fuchsia Storm and N° 32 Corail Jalouse/Jealous Coral as well as the also now permanent, Rouge pur Couture Vernis a Lévres Glossy Stain in N° 33 Bourgogne

Valentine's Day always has us dreaming in shades of red, so this week the Beauty Blogger Top Ten members are showing you our Top 10 Favourite Red Lipsticks! I love a beautiful red.

Get the Look | Jessica Chastain at the 2014 Golden Globes

Makeup artist Kristofer Buckle used Yves Saint Laurent products to create this look of "iconic structured glamour" with a "dare to glow" attitude for Jessica Chastain for the 2014 Golden Globes. Her skin looks absolutely amazing! I love everything about this look. Kristofer used Le Teint Touche Eclat Foundation in B10 and the Touch Eclat #1 Pen to create her flawless, porcelain, angelic-glowing complexion. Blush Radiance #4 was used on her cheeks. Three coats of Singulier Waterproof Black Mascara was applied only to her upper
