Sephora released a “New Nudes” campaign a little while ago, and with the launch of so many new products, I found myself with more than a few new lippies to add to my collection. This round-up will most useful for those looking for a nude lip to wear to daily to work/school.
I received this product for free as part of an Influenster campaign. I was excited to try it out as I don’t have much experience with Clarins’ skincare. With the exception of a couple products I tend to think Clarins is aimed at an older demographic and their packaging isn’t particularly appealing to me.
I picked up a Huda Beauty lip kit which included: two mini Liquid Matte Lipsticks in Famous and Vixen and a full-sized Lip contour in Vixen during the fall VIB sale. I thought it would be a good/reasonably priced way to try out the Huda Beauty line. However, Sephora doesn’t appear to stock these nice little kits anymore. Instead, you can purchase Huda’s full-sized versions of the Liquid Matte Lipsticks for $26cad and the Lip Contour Matte Pencils for $25cad.
Here’s a round-up of all the blushes I own from NARS. I honestly don’t have much to say about them, as the quality & shade range speaks for itself. I also appreciate that NARS does right by WOC again and again in their shade selection. I own a lot of blush from a lot of brands, but I only reach for the NARS ones on a day-to-day basis.
I love Instagram because it’s the best way to find new makeup artists. The other day I happened across this amazing image by artist Joonyoul Seung, which I posted to Reddit in the hopes that I’d be able to find a similar lip product.
I’m one of those people who doesn’t plan for Sephora sales. Then it gets here, I freak out, and buy everything I see. This year the only thing I had in my shopping cart was my boyfriend’s birthday present, which I made sure to order as soon as I woke up. Then I headed down to the recently renovated Sephora on Bloor St. and was amazed by the sheer selection of product available.
This Yves Saint Laurent Lip Discovery set was available at a VIB Rouge Holiday event at my local store. I’ve rarely found YSL sets to be great value for darker skin or interesting enough to warrant purchasing one. So I was surprised that I was attracted to this year’s set – and it seems like a lot of other people were too, because it’s already sold out online. Maybe you’ll be able to find it in store, and here’s hoping it gets restocked.
