Urban Decay Matte Revolution Lipstick Review and Swatches

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

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

NARS Fall 2015 Collection Review and Swatches

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

The Pretty in Pink Lip and Cheek Combo From Fusion Beauty That I am Loving Right Now

Dior Fluid Sticks Fall 2015

Dior Fall 2015 Cosmopolite Collection Addict Fluid Sticks in Versatile, Avant-Garde, Chic Review

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.

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
