Too Faced Melted Latex Liquid Lipsticks

I feel like I have said this 1000 times this summer, but the warmer weather always has me reaching for lip glosses over matte liquid lipsticks. Recently Too Faced launched a new collection of Melted Latex Liquid Lipsticks, which more or less work out to being high coverage lip glosses. Keep reading for my lip swatches of the full collection and my thoughts on the formula!

Mary Kay Fall 2017 | Rosé Nudes & Smoky Greys

mary kay fall 2017 rose nudes smoky grey

Technically yesterday was the first day of Fall-- however I am not yet reaching for my smokey plums and berry lips. I went for a walk yesterday for an hour and actually got a sun burn. But that being said, sooner or later we will be reaching for our fall jackets, and when the air gets cool and crisp I put away my corals in search of something a bit moodier. Recently Mary Kay was nice enough to send me their new fall launches, and I am really excited to be sharing them here with you today!

Séxūal Paris For Her & For Him by Michel Germain review

Nothing makes me happier than when I get a PR package that I can share with my boyfriend. I'm lucky to get a number of wonderful gifts in the mail every month, but it is always extra special when there is something I can share with him. I was delighted earlier this month to receive not one, but two of Michel Germain's scents. One for me, and one for him!

Pacifica Lip Balms

Saturday 9 September 2017

pacifica lip balm

Its always handy to have a lip balm in your purse. Often enough my boyfriend will ask if I have one, or I will end up in a heavily air conditioned office that just dries me out (summer). In the winter, its the cold wind coming in off Lake Ontario that leave my face (and in particular my lips) dry and chapped. I tend to get bored of the traditional vanilla/mint/cherry combinations so I was excited when Pacifica's new collection landed on my desk!

pacifica lip balm

This fun new launch includes seven new lip balms and a lip scrub. Flavours include: Persian Cherry, Summer Kale, Bali Coconut, Cuban Mango, Hawaiian Banana, Indian Chai and Rainbow Watermelon.

Each of these balms is clear -- no tints here! They each have a very unique and distinct scent. In my opinion, Indian Chai is the most unique! I have never seen chai as a lip balm flavour, and I know that it will be a hit for those who love chai tea! Hawaiian Banana smelled just like the ear infection medicine I had as a kid, in the best possible way (I always loved the fact that it was banana flavoured. As a kid I had quite a number of ear infections and the banana medicine was comforting to me and made it all better).

While each of the scents was lovely, Summer Kale was with out a doubt my favourite! This lip balm had the same refreshing, fruity green scent that the shampoo and conditioner that I fell in love with does! It is entirely unique among my lip balm and gloss collections, andI have been reaching for it over the last few weeks! My other favourite was Cuban Mango, because I love mangos. Of course wear time on a lip balm is nothing to write home about, however they are moisturizing and leave my lips feeling good!

This collection also included a lip scrub. I like that the scrub can be used straight from the tube -- no dipping dirty fingers into a jar! It gets the scrubbing done without being too abrasive which I appreciate. I like to use this once or twice a week a the same time that I brush my teeth.

Pacifica always have the most inviting natural scents. Not only do they have fun names, but they are often in unique combinations. I am so happy that this lip balm collection is no different!

Have you had a chance to try anything from this collection? What do you think?

This collection can be purchased at Ulta for $4.99 USD each. This line is Ulta exclusive. They are 100% vegan, and cruelty-free.

My Burberry Blush Eau De Parfum review

If My Burberry is a busy, professional London executive, then My Burberry Blush is when she dons her favourite dress and attends a garden party with her high class peers (and in this image, the Duchess of Cambridge is in attendance with Princess Charlotte for a perfect girls day while William is off flying planes with George).

The working title for this post is "MAC Next To Nothing Foundation Review & Why Blog Posts Are More Than First Impressions"...and ugh...I just don't even want to write it.

Clinique x Jonathan Adler

Clinique x Jonathan Adler

Earlier this summer Clinique launched a bright, bold, and beautiful collection with interior designer Jonathan Adler. Adler was inspired by "jet-set glamour" and as luck would have it, I received this collection at more or less the same time that I set off on my own whirlwind vacation.  While this post is up a litter later than I would like, I have zero regrets about my trip! He said that he wanted to reflect the luxury and beauty of iconic summer destinations. While he may not have named a lipstick after Barcelona, Morocco or Nice, this collection brings back wonderful memories of a perfect vacation.
