The Rouge Bunny Rouge Long-Lasting Duo Cream Eye Shadow in Gossamer Wing ($45 US/8ml) is probably the loveliest, and most easy to use, cream eyeshadow I have ever used. Cream eyeshadows have been restricted to being used as a powder eyeshadow base for the most part in my routine. With Rouge Bunny Rouge's delightful formula it is actually effortless to create a beautifully blended, and complete, eye look with just their cream eyeshadows. They have a light, mousse like texture that makes controlling and blending the product a

Oh my goodness I am in TROUBLE. I have developed an all consuming obsession with Charlotte Tilbury cosmetics. I have been a fan of Charlotte Tilbury for years.

I knew she loved high end, luxury products so I was expecting nothing but the best. When the range was first released, but not yet available in Canada, I was so close to ordering from the UK, I
The Urban Decay Naked Smoky Palette ($64 CAD/$54 US) is a palette that includes everything you need to create so many different smoky eye looks, and even some tame ones as well. The packaging for Naked Smoky is my favourite of all the Naked Palettes. The palette has a floating smoke pattern with the lettering in gunmetal foil. Even the back of the palette is cool. The transparent smoky plastic allows you to see through to the pans and brush within. The magnetic closure palette feels very secure and sturdy. Open the palette

I can't believe we are sharing Fall 2015 Collections already. I have been enjoying this summer more than most I can remember in recent history. The weather has been incredible and we have been taking full advantage of it. At the same time I find myself latching on to the new fall clothing and makeup releases with much more anticipation and excitement than usual. Normally I would never start investing in a Fall wardrobe at the beginning of August but I've already been going a little crazy. I really am excited about fall. Today I
