Maybelline The Creamy Mattes are Back in 8 Limited Edition Shades! Review and Swatches

Maybelline is relaunching their Maybelline The Creamy Mattes Lipsticks ($9.99 CAD ea) in a limited edition collection of 8 shades. These lipsticks feel light, creamy, and non-drying yet offer the fully opaque colour of a matte lipstick. I found the lighter, brighter shades to have a bit more matte finish. The deeper shades I found to have a subtle sheen to them. These are stunning colours. Nicely done Maybelline! You won't get the full day wear you can get from dryer matte lipstick formulas, but you will still get an impressive

Another one of my favorite things from the collection, OK OK maybe I have a lot of favourites, is the new limited edition NARS Killer Shine Lipsticks ($29 US/$36 CAD). This new formula is fantastic. They have amazing pigmentation and the most gorgeous glossy sheen. You certainly don't need

New Shades of Kat Von D Studded Kiss Lipsticks for Fall 2015 Review & Swatches

For Fall 2015 Kat Von D Beauty has introduced 9 new bold shades of the Kat Von D Studded Kiss Lipstick ($25). I have seven of these new shades to share with you today. These lipsticks come in the signature black studded packaging.

This formula offers intense colour payoff and long wear. I found the formula varied slightly between shades. Most I tested have the highly pigmented, opaque finish, and drier texture that I would associate with a "traditional" matte lipstick formula. A couple of the shades had a bit

The Dior State of Gold Holiday 2015 Collection has so many stunning products but my favorites in the collection would have to be the Dior Diorific Matte Lipsticks ($45 CAD).

These lipsticks have a subtle luminosity and a sheerer effect while still offering full coverage. The formula is packed with three nourishing oils to offer supreme comfort and hydration. These lipsticks feel incredible on the lips and look

The New Dior Addict Lipstick Collection for 2015

Dior has reinvented their Dior Addict Lipstick Collection for 2015. There is an impressive 44 shades available and the new formula is even more fabulous than it's predecessor. It features a Hydra-Gel Topcoat and a Triple Oil Complex at the core. We have seen this core style lipstick in some of Dior's previous limited edition releases so I love that they have incorporated it into the reformulated Dior Addict Lipsticks ($35 US/$42 CAD). It is so beautiful to look at with the Christian Dior initials. I've long loved the Dior Addict

Charlotte Tilbury The Dolce Vita Look Review Including the New Matte Revolution Lipstick in Bond Girl

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 can't even remember how I was first introduced to her, but I loved her YouTube videos. When she announced she was coming out with her own cosmetics line I was incredibly excited. 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

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
