Fenty Beauty Roundup

You’d never know, (because I haven’t made a blog post in forever), but I actually picked up some of these Fenty Beauty products the day they launched, even though I had to pay an absurd amount for them in Europe. Of course I promptly lost my lip luminizer and between travelling and school, haven’t a chance to blog it. Still, I hope this is post will be of some use to you.


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.

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.

The loot (part one lol).

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.
