Get ready. I'm about to introduce you to another amazing mascara. I am seriously having anxiety over the number of fabulous mascaras I have open at the moment. It seems like every new release I try I am falling in love with. How can I use them all in 3 months? May is my mascara month. So many new mascaras exceeding my expectations! I still have 2 or 3 left to open and test and I'm actually afraid I'm going to love them too. The Yves Saint Laurent Mascara Vinyl Couture ($29 US/$39 CAD) is an intense mascara that offers a great
I think I'd have to say that this is my favorite Stila product that I've tried to date. The Stila Perfect Me, Perfect Hue Eye & Cheek Palette ($39 US/$51 CAD) is a palette of 5 eyeshadows and 2 blushes that is available in four shade combinations to suit a variety of skintones. I saw all of the shade offerings at the summer preview event and they are all beautiful.

Stay tuned peeps because I have a lot of new mascaras to share with you over the coming days, and I am falling in love with many of them. It figures I am going to have a whole bunch of mascaras opened at once that I love. I get so anxious about having multiple mascaras open at one time knowing they will go to waste! First up we have the new Tarte Tarteist Lash Paint Mascara ($23 US/$ CAD). I saw this being used by several bloggers, and by Tarte, on Snapchat so I wasn't surprised that I loved it after having already seen how
Urban Decay’s latest collaboration with Disney is celebrating the release of the Alice Through the Looking Glass movie hitting theatres on May 27th, 2016.

The Alice in Wonderland Book of Shadows sold out on their website in a matter of hours. While this palette is of course still limited edition, I think Urban Decay is a lot more
I am already a huge fan of the MAKE UP FOR EVER Aqua Eyes and Artist Liners. When I heard about the new MAKE UP FOR EVER AQUA XL Eye Pencils I wondered how on earth could they possibly release another eyeliner. I would have to assume if they were releasing a new liner it would be an improvement upon what the brand already offered, but that seemed like such a tall order. Well wow, let me tell you, these AQUA XL eyeliners are amazing! These are my new go to eyeliners. They are so smooth and creamy and give amazing colour payoff.

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

The new MAC Pro Beyond Twisted Lash ($22 US/$27 CAD) is one pretty cool mascara. The flexible wand can curve in all directions up to a complete 90-degree angle. This gives you the ability to adjust the angle to one in which you feel most comfortable, and that allows you to access even the smallest lashes in all areas of your eyes. The formula is a nice everyday formula that gives separation and lift with subtle volume. The new MAC Pro Beyond Twisted Lash is being added to the permanent line and will become available
