I don’t know about you, but I’m really happy to see the temperature sky rocket in Toronto this week. I’m bringing out all of my nautical outfits and ballet flats. Yay! The sun may be ready, but my skin is not! My lips have been in need of a little prep to get rid of the dry days of winter.
Enter Mèreadesso Tinted Lip Treats ($28). These balms come in pairs so that you can leave one at home on your nightstand, and pop the other in your makeup bag. The Lip Treats come in a sheer pink colour, that you can build by swiping on more. They make my lips feel really soft and moisturized. So what’s inside? A blend of evening primrose, grape seed, coconut and sunflower oils and Vitamins C and E. It’s a perfect blend to get your lips ready for summer. Bonus- it also acts as a primer.
NARS has combined two of my favourite things in their latest summer collection. Makeup and illustration! The collection is called “Undercover” and features brand new Lip Covers to saturate the lips with colour, and new shades of Dual-Intensity Blushes and Eyeshadows.
The illustrations are so fun, and are illustrated by Konstantin Kakanias. They are inspired by the French Rivera. (more…)
Estée Lauder has launched a new collection that’s been designed by the super star team of Kendall Jenner and blogger Irene Kim. The massive 82 piece collection is a fresh take on Estée Lauder and is split into different beauty attitudes.
Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquid are an ode to the makeup trends of the 90s. Many brands are coming out with their own version of matte lipsticks with variations or reds, pinks and everyone’s recent favorite: nudes. This is probably one of my favorite Maybelline packaging.
The lipsticks come in clear rectangle tubes with a sponge applicator. The formula is very fluid and bright in colour which is great. The only fault? Once on the colour was not completely matte until blotted with a few dabs of tissue. Overall, the lipstick line is a nice addition, full of vibrant colours and a creamy formula.
In the winter, it’s perfectly acceptable to be obsessed with making sure that your lips are perfectly moisturized. And to maybe have one, two, or eight different lip balms. Because you never know when you might need one, or when you might run out!
