The recent release of 16 new shades of Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks ($20 US/$24 CAD) has also been my first introduction to the product. I must say I'm impressed. I can see why these have become such a cult favorite. The formula is incredibly pigmented and applies so beautifully. There is no need to fuss with a lip liner. These aren't near as drying as a lot of other matte liquid lipsticks I have tried and dare I say, as long as I prep lips first with a balm, I don't find them drying at all. The colour selection is

The Dior Fall 2015 Cosmopolite Collection brings us three new limited edition shades of Rouge Dior Lipstick ($42 CAD). The full name for these lipsticks is Dior Rouge Dior Couture Colour Voluptuous Care Lipstick. Quite a mouthful isn't it? But let me tell you, these lipsticks are worth the elaborate moniker. They feel so amazingly lightweight while imparting such lush hydration to the lips. The glossy finish of these lipsticks makes lips look youthful and plump. I found these new shade editions excelled particularly well at
For Fall 2015 Estée Lauder is expanding the product range of their very successful, and fabulous, Pure Color Envy line. There will be a new collection of 12 shades of Estée Lauder Pure Color Envy Matte Lipsticks and 8 shades of Estée Lauder Pure Color Envy Liquid Lip Potion. The Pure Color Envy Matte Lipstick ($34 CAD) was created in collaboration with Estée Lauder spokesmodel and supermodel Joan Smalls. All shades and finishes were picked by Joan. The formula offers the rich saturated pigment of the original Pure Color Envy
Urban Decay is bringing us the matte look we love but with a comfortably creamy and nondrying formula with the new Urban Decay Matte Revolution Lipsticks ($26 CAD). And let me tell you, these are not for the faint hearted. These lipsticks offer full impact and rich, vibrant colour thanks to their propriety Pigment Infusion System. The formula includes a blend of avocado, olive, and babassu oils, shea butter, and illipe butter to nourish and condition lips. Vitamins C and E offer antioxidant benefits. The release includes 9
I have a few pieces to show you today from the August released Fall 2015 Collection as well as some new product launches hitting counters in September 2015.
There is a new range of 25 shades of Clarins Joli Rouge Lipstick ($27 CAD) coming in September 2015. Enriched with mango oil and salicornia extract, these lipsticks glide on smoothly with glossy pigment that lasts for hours and feel delightfully moisturizing. I find the texture and gentle gloss of this creamy formula makes lips look plumper and younger. I
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
LipFusion Plump & Shine Lipstick in Babydoll ($31 CAD) This lipstick has plumping benefits thanks to Expand-a-Somes which are microscopic lipid spheres that boost the lips natural lipid content, while embedding in between lip tissue, to build firmness and volume. The formula feels lightweight and very smoothing on the lips. It gives a sheer finish with great colour payoff and a gorgeous shine. The formula includes Organic Green Coffee Oil to restores lipids and rehydrates lips, increasing elastic and collagen
Today I have some of the new lip products from the Tarte Fall 2015 Energy Noir Collection to share with you. The Fall collection brings two new shades of Tarte LipSurgence™ Matte Lip Tint and a new shade of Tarte LipSurgence™ skintuitive™ Lip Tint. The two new shades of Tarte LipSurgence™ Matte Lip Tint ($24 US/$29 CAD) for Fall 2015 are Bare (a nude marsala) and Tempted (a vampy dark berry). I love these matte lip pencils. The pencil format allows you to precisely apply the colour without need of a lip liner. The formula
I love the Dior Addict Fluid Stick ($35 US/$42 CAD) formula. They have an incredibly light weight formula that offers intense, opaque pigment with a glossy shine. Intense long-hold pigments are encapsulated in beads of gloss. The colour and shine become one. The lack of wax in the formula means that once the product is applied, and the water in the formulation evaporates, you are left with bold glossy colour with a fresh, light, feel. While I adore the formula I hadn't yet discovered any shades that I found really worked for me.
MAKE UP FOR EVER has added some new shades to their waterproof Aqua family for summer. Perfect for summer are the new Aqua Rouge 23 Apricot Pink and 21 Cool Candy Pink. I have Cool Candy Pink to share with today. I have raved about the MAKE UP FOR EVER Aqua Rouge ($24 US/$29 CAD) products many times before. These double-ended lip colours truly are waterproof, smudge-proof, and kiss proof. #8 Iconic Red remains my number one choice when it comes to wearing a red lip. You can seriously take a tissue and rub to heck out of your
I am loving these new products from the limited edition Tarte Summer 2015 Collection. The perfect shades and tools for effortless, chic summer makeup. The Tarte Park Avenue Princess Contour Palette ($41 CAD) is actually from the Spring 2015 collection I believe but I am including here because I am obsessed with it. It is perfect for fair skin. The palette includes: • Amazonian clay matte waterproof bronzer in Park Ave Princess - This bronzer is the perfect gentle tan bronze with no orange tones and a satin matte finish. •
NUDESTIX has added several new products to their range recently and I'm going to be sharing some of them with you today. NUDESTIX #gobronze ($35 US/$38 CAD) is a beautifully packaged set including two Magnetic Eye Color Pencils in Gilt and Immortal. The gold and bronze shades offer a subtle magnetic finish and have great pigmentation and colour payoff. I highly recommend using a primer with these as I always experience quite a bit of creasing and fading. The shadows can be blended out for a sheerer finish or worn more opaquely,
The Dior Summer 2015 Tie Dye Collection is full of absolutely gorgeous products. I have really been impressed with this collection. One of the new products released with the collection is the Dior Addict Tie Dye Lipstick ($33 US/$34 CAD). These lipsticks are packaged similarly to the Dior Addict Lipsticks but with an added subtle iridescent flash of colour that I didn't capture in the photographs. These lipsticks have a second contrasting colour running through them in the for of the Christian Dior initials. The shades blend
