Today I am sharing a couple pieces from the Guerlain Bloom of Rose Fall 2015 Collection. I must say I love the new black with a hint of gold Guerlain packaging! First up we have one of the new Guerlain blushes. The Guerlain Rose Aux Joues Tender Blush ($57 CAD/$52 US) is a much softer formula than the prior version which was a bit harder in the pan. This new formula is smooth and silky and easy to pick up product. The sleek black magnetic closure case with subtle gold Guerlain logo is so chic. Open it up and you are greeted

Clarins Instant Light Lip Comfort Oil in Raspberry Review

The new Clarins Instant Light Lip Comfort Oil ($23 CAD) is a true decadence for lips. This lip treatment oil comes in two varieties. Honey and Raspberry. The tint is very, very sheer so you are opting more for a flavour preference than colour preference when deciding between the two. I have the Raspberry version to share with you today. The Clarins Instant Light Lip Comfort Oil is beautifully packaged. The short, squared bottle is clear to reveal the gorgeous tint of the oil. The cap and lettering are all in gold. The wand

Dior Rouge Brillant Review | Bonheur, Victoire, Darling | A Beautiful Marriage of Treatment & Gloss

Dior is embracing the new lip treatment cosmetic trend with their new Dior Rouge Brillant. What makes the Dior Rouge Brillant stand apart from the other lip treatment releases as of late is that it truly excels as a traditional lip gloss. Not just a lightly tinted lip treatment, these perform as beautifully pigmented glosses, but with all the added benefits of a lip treatment including three highly refractive treatment oils. This is an extensive collection release of 12 gorgeous shades. The Rouge Brillant is an ultra-fine gloss

Clarins Instant Light Lip Balm Perfector in 01 Rose Review, Photos, Swatches

I am having a bit of a beauty epiphany as of late. I have always brushed all these tinted balm releases aside without much interest or excitement but in the last few weeks I have discovered several new formulas and shades I not only like, but that I love. The new Clarins Instant Light Lip Balm Perfector ($23 US/$22 CAD) is one of them. The formula includes wild mango butter to protect against dehydration offering a comfortable and supple feel. Shea butter nourishes and protects and gives the balms a smooth creamy finish. The

Too Faced La Creme Lip Balm in Plum Crazy Review | Not Just Your Ordinary Tinted Treatment

I swear I am on some kind of roll the last couple weeks. So many new loves including another tinted balm that has started to change my view on tinted treatments. The Too Faced La Creme Lip Balm in Plum Crazy ($22 US/$25 CAD) is more a sheer lipstick in terms of pigmentation than a tinted balm. Consider it the sheer version of the amazing Too Faced La Creme Lipsticks with a more balmy texture and lip loving benefits.

I love the Too Faced brushed metal tubes and the La Creme Lip Balm comes in a pretty pink

Rouge Dior Baume 628 Palais for Spring 2015 | Review, Photos, Swatches

I don't usually get very excited about tinted balm lip products. If I'm going out I like to have on lipstick, gloss, or both. If I want a balm then I will stick to a regular balm around the house. The Rouge Dior Baume 628 Palais ($37 CAD) however has me in her grasp. This is the only Dior Baume I have tried thus far, so I am not sure if they are all like this, but Palais has the perfect amount of colour and coverage. Certainly equal to a sheer lipstick. But the best part is that the sheer coverage is perfectly even. It feels
