I find myself reaching for lip gloss more and more as I age and especially in the cold months. My lips are so much drier than ever before and lipstick is just not a good look for me most days.
My most recent Sephora order included the new Fenty Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer in the shade Fenty Glow which is described as a shimmering rose nude. The claim is that the gloss delivers shine and all three shades – Fenty Glow, Diamond Milk, and FU$$Y – flatter all skin tones. Fenty Glow certainly works with my pale complexion and I think it would be gorgeous on deeper skin tones as well.
Hello my lovelies. As per popular demand I’ve cobbled together a gift guide for you to use (or send to those who need a hint) this festive season.
For the book worm:
There have been several wonderful books released this year. These are just a few suggestions – feel free to drop me a dm if you want some more.
So often when I sit down to write the words just flow easily. It’s like stepping outside of my life for a moment and abandoning myself to the loveliness of words.
Today is not one of those days. Writing is one of the very few things that comes easily to me and it’s frustrating when I feel blocked. I’ve been struggling to come up with a post all week so I’m going to keep it simple.
About a month ago I maxed out my Shopper’s Drug Mart optimum points (best reward program ever). Of course I immediately set about spending every single point. Picture a crazed kid in a candy store and you’ll have some idea of what happened.
Anyway, one of the things I picked up is the Clarins Instant Light Lip Comfort Oil. It’s the bomb dot com. I have the shade 03 Red Berry. It’s moisturizing, non-sticky, non-oily (surprisingly), and provides a light sheen of colour. A handbag staple for sure. Plus it smells delish.
The applicator is nice. It’s large and delivers just the right amount of product. The Clarins website describes it as “a cocoon applicator that increases pleasure upon application.” Now, I’m not sure about increasing pleasure (seriously, who writes this stuff?)… but it certainly does the job.
I’m a sucker for nice packaging and I love the square shape and gold lid. It looks luxe. Luxe kittens
