Complexion Perfection with the New Burberry Cashmere Foundation and Contouring & Highlighting Pens

The new Burberry Cashmere Fluid Foundation ($54 US/$60 CAD) is very aptly named. This liquid foundation offers medium to full coverage with a cashmere soft matte effect. It's a beautiful satin matte finish with a natural radiance. The formula is touted as being weather proof. Performing through, and protecting from, rain, humidity and pollution. I haven't had the opportunity to test out these claims as the humidity here I think is finally abolished for fall. I do find this foundation lasts the day for me with minimal fading.

Get That Dewy Skin Natural Look with These New Products from Nudestix

NUDESTIX has added several new products to their range recently and I'm going to be sharing some of them with you today. NUDESTIX #gobronze ($35 US/$38 CAD) is a beautifully packaged set including two Magnetic Eye Color Pencils in Gilt and Immortal. The gold and bronze shades offer a subtle magnetic finish and have great pigmentation and colour payoff. I highly recommend using a primer with these as I always experience quite a bit of creasing and fading. The shadows can be blended out for a sheerer finish or worn more opaquely,

Top 10 Highlight and Contour Products | Beauty Blogger Top Ten Tuesday

This week the Beauty Blogger Top Ten Team is sharing our Top 10 Contour & Highlight Products. Unfortunately a lot of what I will be sharing with you as my favourites were limited edition products. Especially when it comes to highlighters, they are predominately released as limited edition products in seasonal collections. I could barely even find any highlighters in my stash that weren't LE or had been discontinued. When it comes to contour products for fair skin bronzers should be avoided. There is nothing natural about the

MAKE UP FOR EVER Pro Sculpting Duo Review, Photos, Swatches

Contouring is probably the biggest "trend" going on in the beauty world these days. While I think the whole contouring thing has been taken to a very comical and unrealistic extreme I must say I am delighted with the abundance of contouring products being released on the market as a result. The MAKE UP FOR EVER Pro Sculpting Duo Undetectable Face Contour Powder ($39 US/$45 CAD) is one of the most recent releases. I was very excited to try it because I am a huge MUFE fan. Being promoted with the contour duo is the MAKE UP FOR

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
