Spring just beginning means lots of new skincare and makeup from my favourite brands! Here are some new beauty products to help you transition into the new season.
Stila has some exciting new collections for spring, Bohemian Beauty, and Selfie Reflection. Included in the lines are new shimmery eye shadow formulas, and one of my favorites: the Glitterati lip topcoat. It’s perfect for pairing with their matte lipstick formulas. (more…)
I’ve been looking forward to reviewing this mascara for awhile! Dior’s new Pump and Volume is such a unique and great new beauty product that everyone should have in their makeup bag!
The mascara was first created because backstage, makeup artists would run the tube of mascara under hot water to make the formula more fluid. The concept is that you squeeze the bottom of the tube while pulling the wand out, getting any extra product off of the brush giving massive volume. The mascara claims to give lashes 100% more volume and to be honest, it’s unlike any mascara I’ve seen before! The formula consists of waxes and elastic powders or “Bouncy Powders” which helps to give your lashes all that volume. The top is packaged like most of Dior’s mascara’s, but the bottom is a soft rubber tube.
Take a look at my lashes before and after below!
2 coats of Dior Pump and Volume
It can get a little clumpy after 2 coats, but I personally like the clumpy look. It stayed on all day, and although it is not waterproof formula, it was super hard to take off at the end of the night.Overall, this is great mascara for going out to special occasions, or if you want dramatic lashes every day like me!
Have you been searching for that perfect colour contour for your skin? Search no longer! NARS has come to the rescue for a variety of Contour Blushes for just about every skin tone. The darker shade is meant for bringing out cheekbones for a more chiseled look, while the lighter tone is for those areas of your face that look best illuminated such as the bridge of your nose. The shades are matte, and highly pigmented so a little goes a long way! My favourite is Talia, which is a combination of a dark brown and a pinkish beige perfect for my skintone.
Forget about Racoon eyes, NARS has got you covered with their new Darklight Velvet Eyeliner! The liner comes in 9 pigmented, build-able shades so you can easily do a touchup after work. The creamy formula allows for easy application, and can easily be blended for a smokey nighttime look. My favourite shade is Black Moon.
The holidays are actually just around the corner! It’s time to start breaking out glittery eyeshadows, deep lipsticks and festive manicures. Here are my favourites from ACI.
If you want huge oversized lashes give Cargo Boundless Mascara ($20) a try! The oversized brush has 3 different textures so you can get maximum intensity. The soft bristle coats lashes with just enough product, the firm bristles gives increased volume, and spiked bristles gives defined curls and separation. I use all three for a dramatic holiday look.
With cold weather and snow comes watery eyes and runny mascara. Some waterproof formulas are not the best in lengthening and fanning out my lashes. Fusion Beauty has changed my opinion of waterproof mascara with their Xtension ($28) dramatically lengthening fibre mascara. With micro fibers and nourishing ingredients, it promises no smudges or clumps which has been great in cold weather! (more…)
MAKE UP FOR EVER has launched a massive new line of fantastic eyeliners. The Aqua XL collection is made up of 20 shades of vibrant, long lasting pencils. The eyeliners come in a whopping 5 different finishes: Matte, Diamond, Satin, Iridescent, and Metallic. (more…)
