Easter Berry Makeup Look

It has been a while since i did a berry lip and with Easter and all of the spring colours coming out, this is a great transition lip from winter to spring, not too bright but bright enough to pop! I like to do a muted eye when I do a bolder lip, it gives the look a more natural finish and lets the lip speak for the look! It also allows the look to transition from day to night flawlessly!

With Easter just around the corner I love this look for a brunch celebration or dinner with the family! Just enough colour on the eye for it to pop but not overwhelm the look! The L’Oreal Infallible Pro Matte Gloss 310 in Forbidden Kiss is one of my favourite lip consistencies, it is so easy to put on and so hydrating and pigmented for a matte gloss finish, and an added bonus is the reasonable price!!

Ive linked all my makeup details below as well as linked my off the shoulder top and gorgeous earrings and bracelets!

Sephora Haul + Holiday First Access

My mom and I visited the Sephora at Kingsway this past weekend to attend their VIB Holiday First Access event! It was a great event with coffee, snacks and tons of new goodies to explore!

Lets see what I walked away with!!

Tarte Pretty Paintbox Collectors Makeup Case $77 (Value $543.00)

This gorgeous kit has you covered on all fronts, 24 stunning limited edition eyeshadows, a waterproof micro liner, Tarteist lash paint mascara, goosy lip paint ANDDD a four piece cheek kit to, accentuate contour and highlight!

Pro’s

This palette literally has everything you need, a one stop shop with beautiful, quality made products. Tarte is one of my favourite brands and with a variety of colours and shades, it offers every skin tone an option for a minimal or full face makeup application!

Con’s

The package is beautiful but not fully travel or wear proof. With the fabric front cover my fear would be it getting dirty very quickly, also with the magnetized closure, there is no way to secure the kit shut so I would definitely not be bringing this with me on any trips.

Verdict

If you are looking for a great kit for the makeup lover, a palette that can be used relentlessly everyday, I would definitely recommend it. When you also consider the value of this palette at $543, for only $77 it is a deal hard to walk away from!

 

Bite Beauty Set $29 ($64 Value)

This was the first kit I instantly gravitated towards. I have heard great things about the quality and consistency of their Bite products so it was a no brainer and also a great price and kit to try out their products! This kit comes with four shades, varying from nude to plum as seen below and i already love the pigment and feel of these lipsticks.

Pro’s

Great starter kit to try out the products (their lipsticks start at $30 each) so to be able to try four shades for $29 its a great deal!

Con’s

The only negative I would mention is that they are quite small, great for travel but if you fall in love with a shade you’ll definitely need to go ahead and buy the larger size as it won’t last you long!

Verdict

Great product, very reasonable price, a win win!

 

Last up is the Kat Von D Liquid Lipsticks! These were not included in the holiday access however Ive been eyeing these for a while and wanted to take advantage of the 4X the points until September 19th!

The first one i opted for was the Project Chimps Everlasting Liquid Lipstick. I researched this shade online and it has unbelievably good ratings and now I know why! The colour is absolutely stunning and perfect for fall. I also am so in love with the fact that 20% of the price of every lipstick is donated to Project Chimps, an organization that helps retire biomedical research chimps to a life of freedom. Win, Win, Win!

The second shade is Bow N Arrow, another liquid lipstick that has a great reputation. I am really loving browns this fall and this is the perfectly nude/warm shade!

Verdict

Both are worth the investment as the quality, pigment and longevity of these shades is fantastic!

 

I hope you guys have enjoyed this Sephora haul and you all have a great week!

Primers

I have been alternating between these two primers for the last several months and had to share. They are completely different and both offer two very different finishes.

The Tarte BB Tinted Treatment 12hr Primer I have used for probably over a year now and I absolutely love it. It offers a natural, tinted finish that really smoothes out pores and uneven skin tones. It is also beautiful on its on if you are looking for a light coverage finish. It comes in 5 different colours so you are sure to find the perfect shade for you! It is more on the expensive side at $43CA however it lasts forever and a little goes a long way!

The Magic Lumi Light Infusing Primer is a sheer drugstore illuminating primer, very different from the Tarte primer, it offers a more sheer application with a glow finish. I would recommend this primer for women looking for a dewy glow finish, women with very oily skin may want to avoid this primer as it will accentuate the oily/glow. Also if you have dry skin this lumi primer will add that hydrated glow. What is really great about this primer is you can apply it to your face prior to applying your foundation or you can actually mix it inwith your foundation and apply it together!

Hope you guys enjoy!

Tarte Lights Camera Lashes Double-Ended Mascara And Lash Primer

I wanted to review this Tarte Lights Camera Lashes mascara as soon as I had given it enough time to trial because it is Limited Edition!

You Guys!!! You neeeeeeeeeed to try this mascara, I am in Lovvvve!!!!!!!

I had been using Dior Mascara for several years and really was not happy with their latest version so I was on the hunt for a volumizing, lengthing mascara and primer and Ta-Da!!!! I found it! This mascara and primer in one does everything and more! Can you tell I am excited?!?! Reasons I love it:

  1. The 2 in 1 is perfect for travel and the combination of the two work brilliantly together!
  2. The Primer. I have come to really like priming my lashes before applying mascara (I used the Dior primer for the last couple years, it works great but it is really expensive) and this primer for this price is brilliant!
  3. The Mascara. It applies flawlessly and evenly giving you long, volumious, thick lashes!

Coming in at $24 I think it is priced very reasonably considering you are getting two products in one package. I have used this mascara everyday for almost two months now and I just love it! I have also struggled with the taking off some mascaras especially waterproof ones and I love face that I dont have to rub the crap out of my eyes to get it off!

If you guys are on the hunt for a new mascara  I would highly, highly recommend this mascara!
