Nothing says spring quite like flowers! eos hosted a lovely floral workshop to launch their new body lotions. Seriously, this was one of the most beautiful events that I’ve attended all year.

Stila’s Aqua Glow Serum Concealer, part of the new Impressionist Collection from Stila is great for the upcoming summer months. What’s special about this concealer is that the ionized water and minerals hydrate the skin, leaving a semi matte glow.The tube has a very precise tip instead of a brush, and this allows you to control how much product is coming out.
The formula glides onto skin and instantly becomes undetectable within seconds. Your pores won’t feel clogged or heavy as the formula is very lightweight, but still allows buildable coverage. When set with a loose powder the concealer stayed on all day without re-revealing any dark circles or lines.

We’ve tried to strike a balance between our commitment to conservation efforts and sustainability and our natural sense of playfulness.” (more…)
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.
