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.

Urban Decay Revolution High Color Lipgloss Review | Urban Decay Summer 2015

Many of these have been great quality and shade offerings but, until now, I haven't been exactly giddy with excitement over a new gloss launch. What is this new gloss that has me so impressed? It's the new Urban Decay Revolution High Color Lip Gloss ($22 US/$26 CAD) that was released with the Urban Decay Summer 2015

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

NARS Spring 2015 Colour Collection Review, Photos, Swatches

The NARS Spring 2015 Colour Collection is a well edited collection of only 7 pieces. The collection features Tilda Swinton in the second of four ‘Portraits by The Artist’, a seasonal series of acts created by NARS Founder and Creative Director François Nars. Act 2, for Spring 2015, is a nude scene – daring, baring, anything but neutral. Disrobed tones in spectral effects expose a new natural state. The look begins with a provocative pink shimmer on cheeks. The barely-there effect extends to eyes, where a bold beige base

L’Oreal Paris Extraordinaire by Colour Riche Lip Colour in 601 Nude Ballet Review

The L'Oreal Paris Extraordinaire by Colour Riche Lip Colour ($12.99 CAD) is one of my favourite drugstore lip products. They are something between a liquid lipstick and a lip gloss. They offer the intense glossy finish of a lip gloss with the high impact pigment of a liquid lipstick. They make lips look plump and plush and feel fantastic on. The shade I'm sharing with you today is the L'Oreal Paris Extraordinaire in 601 Nude Ballet. The formula offers rich light reflecting pigment and precious Micro-Oils for plump, hydrated,

Dior Addict Lip Gloss 154 Fastes Review | Dior Kingdom of Colours Spring 2015 Collection

Ohhh spring prettiness from Dior. The new Dior Kingdom of Colours Spring 2015 Collection brings us many lovely new spring shades including this pretty, sparkling peachy pink Dior Addict Lip Gloss 154 Fastes ($31 CAD). This shimmering peachy pink is so perfect for spring. I am actually so enamoured with it that I have been wearing it regularly this winter paired with a nude peach lip liner with smokey eye looks. I find Fastes to be a little more pigmented than most Dior Addict Glosses. It gives a nice amount of nude colour and
