I’m back today with another round-up of products that I’ve been reaching for A LOT lately! These beauty staples have been on repeat the last few weeks and are quickly becoming indispensable. From a gorgeous nude lipstick to a portable LED lamp perfect for manicures on the go, these seven must-haves are totally worth checking out the next time that you’re out shopping.
In my last round-up I mentioned that I recently began experimenting with the baking trend – a technique that uses powder to highlight your complexion and set your makeup. Experimenting with different products and techniques is one of the best parts of being a beauty junkie. This week, I wanted to put ombré makeup to the test. “Ombré” refers to the gradual blending of one colour hue to another – usually from light to dark. NYX’s Ombré Blush has a beautiful gradient of two shades that blend perfectly into one gorgeous, natural-looking finish. I’ve been absolutely loving “Mauve Me” (pictured below) and plan on picking up “Ista Flame” and “Soft Flush” as well.
Looking for a new hot, red polish this Winter? Essie “Party on a Platform” (from their Winter 2016 collection out in stores now) is just perfect! The gorgeous garnet red is sexy, sophisticated and looks absolutely fabulous paired with just about any outfit. I have a sneaking suspicion that this colour will continue to grace my nails well past the Holidays and into the New Year.
One of my all-time favourite looks is pairing a sultry smokey eye with a glossy nude lip. Mary Kay’s Semi-Matte Lipstick in “Bashful You” is pretty much nude perfection. The semi-matte formula isn’t drying on the lips and has a beautiful, velvety finish. The lipstick is Mary Kay’s first full-coverage lip product to utilize gel microsphere technology for rich, stay-true color that lasts for hours! Check out the video below!
