Hi Beauties,

NYX Cosmetics recently launched their new lipstick, Slip Tease Fill Color Lip Lacquer*. Now that’s a mouth full!

NYX describes the new lipstick as; “Put the moves on your pout with our new Slip Tease Full Color Lip Lacquer. From seductive nudes to bold berries and more, this luxurious lippie delivers full coverage in 24 pigment-rich and seriously plush shades that shine. Featuring an hourglass-shaped applicator that makes lining your lips a cinch, each weightless hue slips on comfy-smooth and glossy for a knockout finish. The soft vanilla-mint scent is also pretty irresistible.”

New Beauty Launches: Priceline

Hello beauties,

I had the lovely pleasure of attending Priceline’s The Beauty Prescription Live event talking about all the exciting new launches hitting stores soon. With so many launches it can get extremely overwhelming so I wanted to share a few of my faves that I think you’ll love too!

Real Techniques PowderBleu Collection*

The beautiful premium Real Techniques PowderBleu Collection are in stores now but not online yet. While they are more expensive then their other brushes, the quality is amazing! This eyeshadow brush is literally the softest brush I have ever felt.

Revlon ColorStay Exactify Liquid Liner*

These are available in store now and after $25.95 and come in 4 shades, 2 blacks and 2 wearable colours. What’s unique about these liquid liners are that they have a wheel- like a pizza cutter making it super easy to apply. I also think these are a dupe for the Nude Stix ones which I’ll do a comparison shortly.

No offence to makeup artists, but whenever I’ve had my makeup done I feel its too heavy and I don’t look like myself. On my wedding day, the key was to look like myself. So get a cup of tea, coffee or wine, its gonna be a long post!

Kat Von D Lock It Foundation* and Nude by Nature Flawless Foundation*

Unexpected combo but I really liked it. Both are medium to full coverage and last really well when used together. I mixed about a pump of each which was more than enough.

Thin Lizzy Crème Concealer- Pacific Sun*

Anastasia Beverly Hills Cream Contour Kit- Light*

Of course I wanted some extra chisel, so I used the dark shades to contour under my cheek bones and lightly on my forehead and jaw line.
