Viva Glam Ariana Grande  - 1

Ariana Grande is the new MAC #VIVAGLAM Girl!

MAC Cosmetics has announced that Ariana Grande is the new Viva Glam girl for the Viva Glam collection launching January 2016. Ariana's Viva Glam lipstick ($17 CAD) will be a deep dark matte plum and her Lipglass ($15 CAD) a shimmering pink. Every cent of the selling price of Viva Glam Lipstick and Lip Gloss go toward helping women, men, and children living with, and affected by, HIV/AIDS. What do you think of MAC's choice in Ariana Grande? How about the shades? I think the lipstick looks AMAZING. I think it is a shade

My Must Have Product to Transition from Fall to Winter

I hate even thinking about winter already, but today the Makeup Wars team is sharing our must have products to transition from Fall to Winter. The product that becomes an absolute must have for me transitioning from fall into winter is hand cream. In the summer I rarely apply hand cream. Maybe a few times a week - 1 time a day max when I happen to think about it. When the air starts getting colder and harsher, and the wind turns into a skin ravaging force, hand cream becomes a must have several times a day. I never start wearing

Ready to Take on Fall in Style with Bench. #LoveMyHood

I am so excited for Fall. Beautiful sunny days with a refreshing chill in the air. My favorite time of year. We won't talk about the rain... But whatever the fall weather has in store for me I am ready to take it on in style with my new gear from Bench. The Bench Den Jacket in Smoked Pearl Marl ($159 CAD) is a beautifully structured fleece lined jacket. I love that this jacket keeps me warm without any added bulk. It's tapers to the body in the most perfect way and is seamed in all the right places. It is just so incredibly

My Favorite Alternative to Black Eyeliner | Burgundy Eyeliner – The New Neutral

Fall is all about shades of deep wine and burgundy. I already have the Rebecca Minkoff handbag in the shade Port picked out that I know is going to be my favorite fall accessory. This week the Makeup Wars team is looking at more unique eye product colours. Burgundy shades may be best suited to accentuating green eyes, but I also happen to find plum and burgundy shades incredibly flattering on blue eyes. When I want something a little different than the traditional black and brown eyeliner I love using a deep dark burgundy. It is

Week 4 with Lise Watier Sublimessence High Concentration Age-Defying Serum and I’m Floored

Sponsored Today's post wraps up my month long journey testing out the new Lise Watier Sublimessence High Concentration Age-Defying Serum ($84 CAD). Over the past few weeks I've been telling you more about this potent product and giving you updates on my progress. Now skincare takes time to work, and I'm a little critical when it comes to skincare, so as far as my results updates were concerned I was pretty restrained in my feedback. I was seeing a nice glow to my skin, and it was starting to look and feel a little smoother. Hey,

Getting a Healthy Glowing Complexion with Avène Hydrance Optimale Hydrating Skin Tone Perfector

My skin is dry year round, and the  fall and winter months prove especially trying. I find I can never bring enough moisture to my skin. Dry, sensitive skin can make the cold weather down right miserable. It can also be incredibly aging over the long term. The Eau Thermale Avène Hydrance Optimale skincare range is all about offering maximum hydration to sensitive skin which sounds exactly like the kind of products I need in my routine. In September 2015 Avène adds a new product to the Hydrance Optimale line. The Eau
