MAC Chic Trick Lip Pencil

I’ve had this MAC Chic Trick lip pencil since 2015, and took it out of my stash because it seemed like such a bright pretty fuschia that’s perfect for spring. And you can see in the picture that it is a nice bright colour.  But the pencil wasn’t as pigmented as I would have liked, […]

Favourite Blush

Just a little love for one of my favourite blushes: Bobbi Brown Illuminating Bronzing Powder in Maui.  It’s a warm bright pink blush with gold shimmer.  Not sure why they call it a bronzing powder since it’s not bronze at all, but it looks nice on warmer skin tones. Pick it up at the Bobbi […]

OPI Iceland Collection

OPI’s fall collection is called Iceland, and the names of all the shades are inspired by that country.  The collection is a nice balanced fall collection.  There are a lot of cute dark colours but they’re still lighter than black so they’re not too dark.  There are also some metallics and a few pretty other […]

New Video: Nars Wildfire Collection!

Happy Friday, everyone! The Nars Wildfire Collection is new for Spring 2017 and features colour for the eyes, and more subdued tones for the lips.  It’s a contrast to the light, pretty, floral-inspired makeup that we usually see this time of year, but it’s still on-trend – especially since aqua and teal shades of eyeshadow […]
