Matte Lips Made Easy | Highlight Cosmetics Liquid Lipstick

::: press sample :::

I love matte lips. Partly because I like the matte look and partly (and maybe even more so) because they tend to last longer than other finishes. I'm not one to spend a lot of time reapply lip colour. When it comes to the ultimate long-lasting matte lip, it's liquid lipstick I reach for. Now, they don't all have to be matte, but matte is so much better. Budge-proof, transfer-proof wear makes me happy. But, there is a darker side to the matte lip life... Dryness. You know the sandpaper, sucked in, dry as hell feel. It's a major bummer when it strikes, but there is an answer. It comes in the form of Highlight Cosmetics and their incredible Liquid Lipsticks.

New Season, New Balm | Farmacy Lip Bloom

Happy Fall, blog fans! It's officially Fall, and I'm pretty pleased. I love the season and the cooler, rainy days. The cozy sweaters, candles, pumpkin spice everything... sign me up! A new season is a great time to refresh key items in your makeup bag- mascara, sunscreen, moisturizer, and lip balm. Fall also means an impending winter season, and with that colder winter weather. I deal with dry bits most of the year anyway, but a solid hydration routine becomes more important when the temperatures dip. For Fall my lips are covered with a new balm in the form of Farmacy Lip Bloom that melds hydration with an herbal-based formula.

Rainbow Radiance | BH Cosmetics Foil Eyes 28 Colour Eyeshadow Palette

BH foil eyes 28 colour eyeshadow palette (3)::: I bought it / affiliate links :::

A few weeks ago, I found myself aimlessly reading blogs. It was then that I found the BH Cosmetics Foil Eyes 28 Colour Eyeshadow Palette. I had zero intentions of purchasing anything, but I fell into a palette wormhole... One review led to another, then a tutorial or four, and before I knew it I was checking out. I couldn't help it, it was on sale for $12 (it's on for $9 now!) and Canadian shipping was incredibility decent at a mere $5. That's how I came to own the rainbow-y goodness that is the Foil Eyes Palette. Want to know if it's worth adding to your stash too? Read on...

Happy Monday Tuesday, blog fans! I had great intentions of getting this post out yesterday, but I was just too draggy (you know the feeling.) I am much more energized today, which is great because we have an amazing assortment of skincare to chat about. I've spent the last few months using a Delia Organics routine and am ready to give you the 411. The brand is based in British Columbia (go, Canada!) and offers cruelty-free, organic skincare with options to suit a variety of skincare concerns. I've been using products from the Dose of C range and a delightfully scented mask. You'll need to read on to for more though...
