I admit I can be a snob when it comes to "store brand" products. That's why when I finally tried the Sephora Collection brand a couple of years ago I was completely blown away by the quality. I guess I should have know that if Sephora, THE makeup store, was going to release their own products, they would have to be good. If you haven't explored the Sephora Collection brand I highly recommend you do. The enormous selection of products and shades can be a bit overwhelming but there are so, so many gems to be found. Let's take a
The Clarins Sunkissed Summer 2016 Collection is all about the Summer Essentials for a sunkissed makeup look in four easy steps. Step 1 is of course a golden, sunkissed complexion.

The Paul & Joe Silky Pressed Powder in Compact ($48 CAD) is a beautifully presented pressed translucent powder that comes with a cute puff and a lovely drawstring satin pouch. The lid of the compact

I think I'd have to say that this is my favorite Stila product that I've tried to date.

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

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
