These new Mini Kits from Benefit Cosmetics are Too Cute to Pass Up

Benefit Cosmetics recently released some really cool mini sets and I've got two of them to share with you today.

I really love the cute book style, magnetic closure packaging. It's both fun and practical. The Benefit Cosmetics Operation Pore-Proof Kit ($44 CAD/$34 US) This set includes purse perfect minis of Benefit's bestselling

Neoneutral the Christopher Kane Collection for NARS Review and Swatches

The Christopher Kane for NARS Collection is a collaboration that has brought about a selection of gorgeous shades that balance natural nudes with vibrant neons. The formulas and colours of these blushes, eyeshadows, and lip glosses are a such a joyful mix of sheer and vibrant, matte and glittery, subdued and bold, that I couldn't help but fall in love. Not to mention the packaging. Just look at that amazing packaging! The signature matte black rubberized packaging with neon pink foiled lettering. Hot! Starscape Blush ($30

My Tarte Summer 2015 Favourites

I am loving these new products from the limited edition Tarte Summer 2015 Collection. The perfect shades and tools for effortless, chic summer makeup. The Tarte Park Avenue Princess Contour Palette ($41 CAD) is actually from the Spring 2015 collection I believe but I am including here because I am obsessed with it. It is perfect for fair skin. The palette includes: • Amazonian clay matte waterproof bronzer in Park Ave Princess - This bronzer is the perfect gentle tan bronze with no orange tones and a satin matte finish. •

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

MUFE Pro Sculpting Duo  - 4

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

The compact is quite large but very slim. It has a push button release and comes with a protective plastic cover and a generous mirror inside the compact. Below is an image with one of the Marc Jacobs Beauty Lipsticks to demonstrate the size. The 3 shades available are: Dream Filter 20 -

YSL Spring Collector Palette

Yves Saint Laurent Palette Lumiére de Jour Review, Photos, Swatches | YSL Spring 2015

The Yves Saint Laurent Couture Face Palette Lumiére de Jour ($55 CAD) for Spring 2015 is truly a collector's piece. A gorgeous pastel hued sequin effect with black logo ribbon detail adorn the palette. I think I may have to leave this on my vanity for display. It is just so pretty. Inside is a pale pink (lighter than the promo pictures indicate) shimmering powder that can be used as a highlighter or all over the face. There is a fair amount of delicate sparkle meaning I would reserve this for evening use all over the

SEPHORA + PANTONE UNIVERSE Shimmering Marsala Cheek Trio Review, Photos, Swatches

The Shimmering Marsala Cheek Trio ($28 US/$35 CAD) is one of many must haves in the SEPHORA + PANTONE UNIVERSE 2015 Colour of the Year Marsala 18-1438 Capsule Collection. The press info for this gorgeous compact state that it is a chic compact containing two matte blushes paired with a cream highlighter. Please note that when they refer to the highlighter as a cream they must be referring to the shade being a cream colour as the palette is all powders. Mind you the triple jet milled process they have used gives these powders the
