Nudestix Magnetic Eye Color Review

Nudestix is a Canadian, cruelty-free beauty brand sold at Sephora. I got a chance to learn about their products at the grand opening of the Yonge and Eglinton Sephora, and sampled the Nudestix Magnetic Eye Color pencils. These eyeshadow pencils come in both matte and satin finishes, isn't tested on animals and is free of preservatives... all the things I look for in cosmetics! I wanted to share my thoughts in a Nudestix Magnetic Eye Color review. nudestix-magnetic-eye-color-review-try-on

Nudestix Magnetic Eye Color review: application

These products are a traditional pencil, and glide on the skin smoothly. I didn't find it scratchy at all and it was very creamy! The pencils blended easily with my fingers and I found it was best to build up coverage to create the desired look. I would definitely recommend using an eyeshadow primer, and also a matte powder shadow all over the eyelid to help create a blended look. My favourite part about the product? I LOVE that it comes with a custom, dedicated sharpener. I've ruined too many gorgeous chubby pencils with crappy dull sharpeners that are too big or too small for the product. I can feel confident that I won't completely ruin these amazing pencils!

Bite Beauty Lipstick: Amuse Bouche review and swatches

I’m a huge fan of Bite Beauty lipstick. The Canadian brand is made of natural ingredients and leaves your lips moisturized and soft… the colour ranges are also so unique. I nearly lost it when I got my hands on shades from the Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche collection. Featuring six shades for both Savory and Sweet. Inspired by food, this Bite Beauty lipstick collection is completely unique on the market. Keep reading the post to see my thoughts on each colour...and for some Bite beauty swatches from the Amuse Bouche collection.

Clarins Summer 2016 Collection review

The Clarins Summer 2016 collection is full of beauty products that will enhance your inner goddess. From bronzer to waterproof eyeshadow, Clarins beauty put forward an excellent, curated collection this season. I've shared a review of Clarins' summer collection, as well as a beauty look pulling together my favourite products from the line. clarins bronzer To pull off this natural summer look perfect for the beach, I'm wearing Clarins Ombre Waterproof Cream eyeshadow in Golden Sand for the base, and Taupe in the crease. I used my fingers to pat on the base colour and blend in the accent. I finished my eyes with my favourite eyeliner and Double Fix Mascara. For my skin, I used my regular base and added the new Clarins Bronzing and Blush powder duo and sealed it in with Clarins Fix Make-Up so that it would last all day. For lips, I used the Clarins Natural Lip Perfector which gave a light colour and great shine without being sticky. Shop the post:[show_shopthepost_widget id="1716867"]   clarins self tanner review best bronzer fair skin clarins My absolute favourite products from this release are the Clarins Bronzing and Blush powder duo and the Clarins Self-Tanning Milky Lotion. I have been on the quest for the perfect self-tanning moisturizer, and I've found it. I've tried drugstore brands and even La Mer, but the Clarins formula delivers a bronzy hue, isn't patchy and smells like HEAVEN. I love the intoxicating fig scent. I've been using it once a week to keep my tan on!

Make Up For Ever Pro Sculpting Collection review

Contouring is everywhere. Ever since Kim K and beauty bloggers started sharing the secrets to get a DIY nose job, every make up artist and brand have hopped on the trend. Today, I'm sharing a Make Up For Ever Pro Sculpting Collection review. I'm not a huge fan of the heavily contoured look, but these projects are perfect for getting a natural, flawless defined look. I wanted to share how the entire process, from start to finish, as well as some tips for pulling off a natural contour makeup look. Here are all the products I used: [show_shopthepost_widget id="1566476"] Step 3: Make Up For Ever Pro Sculpting Face Palette make up for ever pro sculpting face palette The new Make Up For Ever Pro Sculpting Face Palette is a gorgeous set of cream colours. First, I took some of the contour colour with my fingers and dragged it along my cheekbones. I then took a plain blush brush (I find the Real Techniques Sculpting brush works best) to blend it out in tiny circular motions. Next, I used my pinky to gently dab some of the illuminating cream shade on the tops of my cheekbones, down my nose and above my cupid's bow. I found picking the product up with my fingers really allowed it to blend, but I could always use my beautyblender again too! Lastly, I swished my blush brush into the blush colour of the Make Up For Ever Pro Sculpting Face Palette, over the apples of my cheeks for an innocent, natural rosy glow! Colour 20 is great for light skin tones, or if you're hoping to get a more natural contour look. Step 4: Make Up For Ever Pro Sculpting Lip make up for ever pro sculpting lip The most innovative product from this line is the Make Up For Ever Pro Sculpting Lip. I started by applying the creamy, pigmented lip crayon all over my lips. I loved that it was mechanical, and unlike my Nars pencils, the cream pencil was super easy, as it sharpened on its own and applied like a dream.

Sephora VIB Sale 2016 Top Picks

Ahhh... it's that time of year again! The Sephora VIB sale 2016 is on! This is your chance to score 15 per cent off all of your beauty lusts and must-haves. I've rounded up my favourite items I've been coveting to add (or replentish) in my beauty stash!
  1. The Invisibobble Traceless hair ring, $10. This product is new, and makes hair kinks a thing of the past! Because I have long hair, I prefer to put my hair up in a loose bun/ponytail hybrid to keep tangles at bay and give me soft waves, but sometimes I wake up with unsightly kinks and have to resort to my hair straightener. With this nifty hair tie, that will be a thing of the past, and I'm excited to test it out.
  2. Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Concealer, $32. I am absolutely in LOVE with this concealer. I've been using shade R22 to colour correct my dark circles, and then shade Y23 to brighten my under eyes. This concealer is so opaque and is perfect for hiding that exam season stress or late night out! I could never go back to any other eye concealer now.
  3. Benefit Cheekathon Blush & Bronzer Palette, $75. HOW GORGEOUS IS THIS? From the packaging to the powders inside, I must have this palette. Hoola bronzer is one of my fave matte bronzers, while Coralista is perfect for giving you that peachy blush! Dandelion is one of my fave "everyday" highlighters, while Dallas is the perfect winter bronzer-n-blush in one. So getting 5 products in one handy palette is sure to be a hit!
  4. Kat Von D Shade and Light Contour Eye Palette, $55. I've been testing out eyeshadows from different brands, and so many of them seem to focus on shimmer shades. I'm loving that this palette contains every neutral in one place and is gorgeously matte for every day wear, or amped up smokey eyes. And because it's an exclusive to Sephora product, it's a great time to take advantage of the discount!
  5. Foreo LUNA For Sensitive/Normal Skin, $199. This is a product I'm dying to try! I've been realizing I've been breaking out (yay for exam season stress!) and noticed it's likely because I'm not taking the time to cleanse my skin properly and fully. I recently bought a crazy electric toothbrush and even my dentist noticed a difference, so I'm hoping the timer on this product, and the ultrasonic pulses will have the same improvement on my skin!
  6. Ouai Wave Spray, $32. If you haven't heard of Ouai yet, prepared to see it in magazines everywhere! This wavy texture spray promises Cali-babe locks, infusing your hair with rice proteins (yay! NOT gluten) and giving you that texture without the yucky crunch.
  7. The Original Beauty Blender, $28. The last time I recommended this amazing tool was in November, and if you bought one then, you're way overdue replacing it! Remember to keep breakouts at bay to always keep your tools hygienic, so replace this wonder sponge every few months!
  8. Mr. Burberry Beard Oil, $55. Beard oils are a big trend in men's grooming, and this one, with its elegant packaging and sophisticated scent is a great way to pamper your guy, or treat your dad for father's day!
  9. Disney Minnie Beauty by Sephora Collection Brush Set, $73. I'm a Disney maniac, so of course, I need to get my hands on some Disney/Sephora merch! I love how this brush set comes complete with a Minnie Bow brush stand!
  10. Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Lolita, $24. This is a perennial fave that sells out all the time. The formula is super matte and doesn't budge all day long, while the gorgeous chestnut rose shade is inimitable.
Shop my faves: [show_shopthepost_widget id="1526683"] PS! TOM FORD BEAUTY IS AT SEPHORA! Yes... get 15% off Tom Ford lipsticks. Ok, I can stop heavy breathing now.
