Mac Lipstick Collection

It's not a secret anymore but I love lipsticks and this is my Mac collection!

I will be doing detailed posts on these but until then I did a lip swatches video so I hope you enjoy!

Sephora Wishlist #2

Because obviously I can't be reasonable and get only five products during the Sephora sale here's some other products I'm planning on getting when it happens!

1. To be honest I haven't had the best luck with face oils. Basically I've tried one - the Josie Maran Argan oil that everyone was raving about - it didn't work at all for me but I've been curious to try another one. I decided to get the Fresh Seaberry Moisturizing Face Oil. They have a travel size that comes in a ornament for the same prize and I thought it was the best time to get it!

2. Like I said in my Wish List #1 the Sephora sale is the best time to try high end foundations. The second one I want to try is the Make Up For Ever Face & Body Foundation. I love the HD one but it breaks me out (thanks to my intolerance to yeast!) and this one apparently works really well for dry skin!

3. Another reason I love the Sephora sale is that there's always good deal with the gift sets! I will be getting two of the Tarte Pigment of Imagination Deluxe Cheek Sets. One for me (obviously!) and one for my sister! At that price it's the perfect stocking stuffer!

4. As the lip junkie that I am I will be getting more lip products! For my own defense I will be comparing this liquid lipsticks to other ones and it's been requested! I'm talking about the Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid lipsticks. The ones I would love to get - if they can be (finally!) back in stock are Bauhau5 and Vampira!

5. I'm giving up to the hype - apparently I need the Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed in Opal. I loooove glowy skin and hopefully I end up loving this highlighter!

6. I've tried to resist the hype about these ones too and now I want them all. A good compromise will be the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush Palette! It comes with three shades - Luminous Flush, Incandescent Electra (limited edition shade) and Mood Exposure so I will be able to try three shades!

What are you planning on getting from Sephora? What should I get?

NYX Matte Lipsticks : Pinks and Reds

I love the NYX matte lipsticks especially the bold shades! You can at least find one color you will love in this post!
They're creamy, pigmented, last a long time and dries down to a matte finish!

L-R: Sweet Pink, Shocking Pink, Angel, Bloody Mary, Indie Flick, Pure Red,  Perfect Red, Merlot and Alabama

Plus good news they stain so they will last even longer!

Sweet Pink
Sweet Pink: Beautiful plummy pink that is surprisingly easy to pull off!

Shocking Pink
Shocking Pink: Vibrant pink that reminds me of Mac Candy Yum Yum lipstick!

Angel: Watermelon color it's such a flattering shade for any skin tone especially during spring and summer!

Bloody Mary
Bloody Mary: Pink red that would be perfect if you have cool tone skin!

Indie Flick
Indie Flick: If you're looking for an orange lipstick you should check this one out! It has a hint of red in it which makes it more wearable!

Pure Red
Pure Red: True red. Compare to the next one it's more warm.

Perfect Red
Perfect Red: This is what I would call a perfect red! It's a bit more cool tone and darker than pure red. It's close to Mac Russian Red.

Merlot: Sunning maroon lipstick - the red has some plum to it and it would look amazing on pretty much anyone! If you're scared of dark red lipstick (especially if you have cool tone skin!) you need to give this one a try!

Alabama: Last but not least Alabama is a dark browny red that is similar to Mac Viva Glma 1!

Hope this was helpful!

Nars Virtual Domination Cheek Palette : Not for Canada!

The new Nars Virtual Domination Cheek Palette came out yesterday on Sephora's website and at that moment I realized that I couldn't get it.

Apparently they won't be shipping to Canada - this was on my wish list and I have to say I'm disappointed.

I called Sephora to asked why and apparently it may be because of the ingredients in one of the limited edition blush that is in this palette. Sad day!

I suppose that in my case it's not that big of a deal I already own Deep Throat and Laguna and so many more blushes that I can easily get something else :P

What are your thoughts?

I won't be going through the trouble to try and use a forwarding company nor travelling for it!

It is now available for Canada! (yay!) Will you get it?

Beauty Wish List!

Hello there!

I thought I would start a little serie and share with you some of the beauty products on my wish list!

Don't even pretend you don't have one because we all do ;)

First on my list is this Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette! It first came out as a limited edition products and I was kicking myself for not getting it. I was about to order some of the individual ones when it came back! I know I will be grabbing this very soon because it's the best way to try 2 permanent colors and one limited edition one. I'll be able to decide if I love the powders or if I love them!

2. I've been a fan of the First Aid Beauty products for a year now and I knew I would grab a gift set as soon as they would come out! The one I'm planning on getting is the Cheers to Fab Skin one!
I wanted to try their eye cream already plus a back up of their Ultra Repair Cream because let's face it winter's coming and I'll need it (dry skin and irritated nose from a cold will thank you!). Last thing I knew I needed was their Lip Therapy lip balm. I lost mine and I've been mourning it ever since.
It's cheaper for me to get the kit than to get these three products plus I get two "free" products!

3. Foundation is one thing I always get during the Sephora sale because getting 20% off makes them way more affordable! One that I'm planning on grabbing and run is the Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation SPF15. I've heard so many great reviews on it that I knew my dry sensitive skin would love it!

4. I love lip products and that's not a secret! One thing I've been loving lately is long lasting liquid lipstick and the Stila Stay All Day ones have been calling my name!
In the picture is the color Aria which is a beautiful magenta plum color that is pretty unique! I also want Patina and Fiery but don't tell my bank account ;)

5. Last but not least (for this blog post let's be honest!) I've been craving new blushes... I know if you ever saw my blush collection you know I need new blushes like I need a hole in my head BUT I might be getting the Kat Von D Everlasting Blush in Truth which is described as a natural flush pink. To be honest, I'm probably going to get the shade Bellisima too during spring!

What's on your wish list? What should I get?
