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/$29 CAD) for Fall 2015 are Bare (a nude marsala) and Tempted (a vampy dark berry). I love these matte lip pencils. The pencil format allows you to precisely apply the colour without need of a lip liner. The formula
SEPHORA COLLECTION Ultra Shine Lip Gel in Ultra Violet ($ US/$20 CAD) is a lightweight lip gloss with a shine inspired by the light reflecting, plumping shine effect of gel nail polishes. Shade 18 Ultra Violet is a stunning hot fuchsia with ultra fine iridescent violet shimmer. The gloss has great pigmentation and even coverage with a translucent finish that makes it very wearable. These glosses feel like you have nothing on. They are so comfortable! Absolutely no stickiness. I get my usual lip gloss wear of about 1-2 hours
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.

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
