NARS Rosecliff Lipstick Review | NARS Nouvelle Vogue Spring 2016 Collection

Rosecliff is a nude brown shade with rose tones. I am really pleased with this shade as normally this sort of colour would pull really warm on me but Rosecliff manages to retain is rose tones on my lips. It is a really beautiful nude. It has a lovely cream finish with a subtle sheen and opaque coverage. I get about 3-4 hours wear out

The Stunning Sleek MakeUP Fall 2015 Collection and 24 Karat Gold Collection

I have some products from the Sleek MakeUP Fall 2015 Collection and 24 Karat Gold Collection to share with you today. I am so impressed with Sleek. I can't believe the quality of the products for the price. No wonder this brand is such a cult beauty lover favorite. I must say, I love the "sleek" packaging of the Sleek MakeUP cosmetics line. Matte black, slim lined, and sturdy. The Sleek MakeUP i-Divine Eyeshadow Palette in Enchanted Forest ($11.99 US) is such a great eyeshadow palette for fall and winter. Inspired by a

The Spring 2016 Collection from Too Faced brings us six new Melted Liquified Lipsticks ($21 US/$25 CAD). Three Too Faced Melted Chocolate Liquified Long Wear Lipsticks and three Too Faced Melted Chocolate Liquified Metallic Lipsticks.

My Recent Beauty Splurge | Huge Colourpop Haul!

Today the Makeup Wars team is sharing a recent beauty splurge. My most recent, and slightly heart stopping, splurge was on Colourpop cosmetics. I couldn't resist trying Colourpop any longer and placed two very large orders back to back. The Colourpop line is incredibly affordable but factor in the US to CAD exchange rate, shipping fee, duties and taxes, and the quantity of what I ordered and it turned out to be a very large splurge. I am not disappointed with my purchases. You really can't beat the price and the quality, shades,

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
