There are lots of new products and new shades available in the Dior Diorshow lineup. There is a new 2016 collection of eight new shades of Dior Diorshow Mono Eyeshadow ($ CAD). These shadows are stunning. I find them to offer more intense pigmentation than the eyeshadows in the Dior quints so if you are the kind of makeup lover that loves rich colour payoff then you will love these shadows. The shades include the incredible lamé effect 756 Cosmopolite. This shade is described as a timeless gold but it is more of a golden taupe

When it comes to color correctors I had no problem deciding what my favorite products were. While most color correctors come in cream form, in either a pan or a stick, the color correctors from Urban Decay are in a fluid form that make them incredibly easy to work with for pros and novices alike. I find the formula also works better with a variety of foundations compared to cream versions. The Urban Decay Naked Skin Color Correcting Fluid ($28 US/$35 CAD) comes in five perfectly done shades in an easy to blend formula that offers

The singles come within plastic pan (that clicks into compact if you have one) that i packaged in a slide out cardboard box with a clear plastic window on top to see the shade within.

The Stila 2016 Spring Collection has so much to love! The best thing about this collection, in my opinion, are the new Stila Covertable Color Lip & Cheek Cream Palettes ($51 CAD). They are a sleek palette of 5 shades of the incredibly popular (for good reason) Stila Convertible Color Lip & Cheek Creams that are available in two color combinations. Sunset Serenade is a very warm palette of colours, while the Sunrise Splendor palette (shown) is an offering of cooler shades. Included the Sunrise Splendor Covertable Color
