Lipstick Must Haves

       From left to right: MAC Velvet Teddy, MAC Honey-Love, CHANEL Rouge Coco '19 Gabrielle', MAC Faux, MAC Myth. 

Thank you all for the lovely comments on my last blogpost! Today, I wanted to share with you guys some of my favourite must have lipsticks. Lipsticks are my go to make up item when the weather starts cooling down, I think its beautiful in the fall and just adds an extra level of sophistication to any outfit. The quality of the MAC and Chanel lipsticks are amazing, unlike others I've tired and the lipsticks are truly worth the investment. I definitely want to buy MAC Ruby Woo, Rebel and Brave lipsticks! I uploaded a new YouTube video, check it out HERE. 

                                            MAC Velvet Teddy                                                                       MAC Honey-Love

MAC Velvet Teddy: is a great nude-y lipstick and is one of my favourite nude lipsticks because of the balance of peach-pink- brown tones. It doesn't appear too pink or too brown, just a 'natural' lip colour.

MAC Honey-Love: has a matte finish. The colour is a pigmented medium beige nude with a tinge of salmon and pink. I think its one of those nudes that will work well with everyone! 

 CHANEL Rouge Coco 'No.19 Gabrielle'

 CHANEL Rouge Coco 'No. 19 Gabrielle': This is a great bold statement lipstick. The lipstick gives quite a matte finish with a little bit of sheer in it. It will look good on all skin tones.

                                                      MAC Faux                                                                                  MAC Myth

MAC Faux: is a nice pink colour that has a satin finish. It's definitely not a bright pink, it's slightly a dull pink colour and has been my go to lipstick lately.

  MAC Myth: has a satin finish. It is a gorgeous pinky nude lipstick, great for a natural make up look!

What are some of your favourite lipsticks?

hello march! 

I thought I would share my current skin care routine, I find these skin care posts very interesting to read! The past three years, I've been using the Body Shop Vitamin E cream cleanser, Vitamin E hydrating toner and Vitamin E moisture cream and I felt that I needed a change.  I am always on a hunt to see what is out there. Don't get me wrong or anything, the Body Shop has really good skin care products and it works for my skin type which is dry. I just needed a change and the brands I've been looking into too was Clinique, Origins, Aesop and Clarins but then I came to the decision to go with Aēsop from reading other blogs, doing research and my best friends telling me its the best skin care products they have ever purchase! 

 About two weeks ago, I've been using Aēsop and let me tell you, it's AMAZING! I wish I found it sooner. In the Aēsop store, a lady was helping me out on finding the best cleansers and toners for my dry skin and she recommended these ones; 

♥ Fabulous Face Cleanser - $31.00 100mL
♥ B & Tea Balancing Toner - $33.00 100mL 
♥ Mandarin Facial Hydrating Cream - $49.00 60mL
♥ Purifying Facial Exfoliant Paste- $51.00 75mL
♥ Protective Lip Balm - $19.00 - 5.5g

 First, I start taking off my eye make up using Revlon colorstay gentle eye remover then I put 1 pump  of Aēsop Fabulous face cleanser onto my clean hands and gently massage it all over my face and when the cleanser is gentle enough to remove my make up I wash it off with warm water. After cleansing, I splash half a teaspoon of Aēsop B & Tea balancing toner onto a cotton pad and pat it onto my face, then I finish off with using Aēsop Mandarin facial hydrating cream and rubbing it all onto my face. I use Aēsop purifying facial exfoliant paste once every week, I do it every friday night and I finish off with using Aēsop Protective lip balm. 

What products are in your skin care routines?
