Clarins Instant Light Lip Comfort Oil

Clarins Instant Light Lip Comfort Oil

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. I spent some time at the Clarins counter because I’m a fan!

Sephora Wish List

I’m on a bit of a wish list kick lately. I’m not sure why that is, but they sure are fun to put together! Now you and I both know that the last thing I need is more make-up, but that doesn’t mean I can’t wish right? Exactly.

So, here is my current Sephora wish list.

1. Soap and Glory

Soap and Glory is really popular with beauty bloggers, and has been for some time. There are a lot more products from this line available in the UK, but we’re starting to see more in Canada. Sephora and Shopper’s Drug Mart are the only places I know of where it’s carried.

I really want to try the Mist You Madly Body Spray, Sugar Crush Body Scrub, and Sugar Crush Body Wash. *swoon*

2. Josie Maran Coconut Watercolor Cheek Gelee

I used to avoid cream blushes like the plague, but I’m starting to realize that I can wear them. I’ve heard a lot of good things about this one in particular.

3. Ojon Rare Blend Oil Total Hair Therapy

I loved the other Ojon Oil I tried and this one is just so friggin’ pretty!

4. Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush in Tipsy

This is another product that the beauty world is abuzz with and it’s totally worth the hype. I’m trying to get away from pink blush and I think this orange-coral shade is fun.

5. Marc Jacobs Honey

Every time I walk through Sephora (just casually and for no particular reason) I just have to take a squirt of this. I know everyone and their brother has probably bought it but it’s so nice.

So there you have it! What’s on your beauty wish list?

Sweet Kiss

Ok lovelies, today we’re talking lippy. I used to be all about gloss. For years I wore super glossy, sweet lip glosses. Lately though I’ve been  interested in slightly more matte lips. Slightly more matte, as in balms and lipstick. I don’t think I’ll ever be someone who wears a completely matte lip.

I’ve tried a few different lipstick brands, most recently Revlon which I adore, but most often I find myself reaching for my Bourgois Sweet Kiss lipsticks. I have two of them and I love them both.

The first is in the shade Rose. Rose is a really nice daytime appropriate pink. It’s an easy one to wear and I like to use it if I’m meeting friends for brunch or lunch or something. It’s got quite a lot of chunky gold-toned glitter in it, so if sparkle isn’t your thing this shade isn’t for you. I don’t find it to be overly shimmery on the lips though.

The second is in the shade Fuscia Class, kind of an odd name but I didn’t come up with it. This is my favourite of the two. This is a super bold, super bright dark pink. I love it for nights out. I wear it out to dinner, out for drinks, to shows, and just about anywhere else you’ll find me of an evening. This shade has no shimmer and it lasts for ages. The formula is creamy and glides on smooth; it doesn’t cling to dry patches or flakes.There’s no need to reapply, which is just so fantastic!

So there you have it! You can purchase these babies at your local Shopper’s for about $18. The price is slightly steep but these lipsticks are worth every single penny.

What are some of your favourite shades?
