Tricks, Treats, & Lip Stick

I picked up this tester of a YSL lip stick at Sephora and instantly loved the cute little tube. 

The colour is a deep berry-like red. It's a really bold colour for every day but it's perfect for my Halloween costume which is just sorta the mask. 

The lipstick is really good because the consistency is creamy, it has a bright long lasting colour, doesn't feel sticky on your lips, and leaves your lips looking glossy. Wouldn't it be fun if instead of handing out candy on Halloween night people handed out little tubes of lipstick or gloss! 

Happy Halloween!

So on my last day of my free photo shop tutorial I finally figured out how to make collages. I made 2 fashion themed ones based off of 2 trends. The edges of the pics are rough but I hope you enjoy.

Cute, Clean, & Imperfections

This week I used the Nature Clean Pure-Sensitive Shampoo and Conditioner. I really like that it's almost fully organic and not tested on animals but I didn't think it worked very well. The combination of the 2 made my hair really flat and not normal. I do however like the bottle because you press that big blue part and it opens the cap but I wouldn't get it again.

Sweet Scent

This is Philosophy's cinnamon buns lip gloss from the Much Mistletoeing set. It doesn't have much colour but it makes your lips look sparkly and dewy. It also gives some high shine.

 I find it doesn't actually smell like cinnamon buns which is disappointing but it does have a nice sweet scent that reminds me of sugar cookie dough and sugar cookie dough is pretty great.

Winter Is Coming

Today I officially gave in to the fact the winter is coming because I finally found a winter coat and I purchased these Christmas themed lip glosses. They're by Philosophy and came in an extremely cute box with 4 different flavours. So for the next few weeks the weekly gloss will be one of these glosses. I haven't even tried one yet but I hope they're as nice a the packaging.

Guilt Free

This week I tried out a new daily shampoo and conditioner by Jason. They are both for all hair types and are fragrance free. I also like the packaging 'cause it looks all relaxing. The conditioner is great because it doesn't make my hair heavy or oily. I like the shampoo for the same reasons. Another great feature is that they aren't tested on animals so while you're washing your hair you're completely guilt free.

Fall Shoe Story

This is a video I made about fall shoes. It's short but I hope you like it.

If you noticed I was walking sorta strangely, I don't know what was up with that, I don't normally walk that way. I think I was just trying to make walking look cooler but it didn't really work.

Intense Colour

 I thought I'd share a black lipstick 'cause Halloween is fast approaching. This one is by N.Y.C. (New York Color) and I'm pretty sure it's only available around this time of year. The colour is really intense and long lasting, therefore it's hard to get off. It also feels really weird when you apply it but other than that I think it's great.

If Leopards Were Purple

Finally! Aritzia finally started selling cases for the latest i-Pod touch with the camera hole. I've been looking at these TNA cases for half a year wondering when they'd come out with a case for the newest i-Pod. I really like the cool leopard print. Wouldn't it be awesome to make your nails match the case. I attempted, but it didn't work out so well. I imagined it looking pretty neat though.

Colds, Thanksgiving, & Vaseline

(Beside the Vaseline is a maple cupcake I made)
Vaseline always seems to be lying around my house. A while ago I heard that it was bad to put on your lips but I looked it up and apparently the kind you buy at the drugstore are fine to put on your lips. This weekend I had a cold so my lips ended up being really dry so I applied some Vaseline. It really helped moisturize and give some shine. It's also nice to put something on your lips that doesn't really have any flavour so you can focus on all the good food 'cause it was Thanksgiving. Just like Thanksgiving Vaseline has been around for a long time.

Looking Good While Helping Out

I got this really nice bracelet/necklace from We Day which I recently posted about. All of the funds from the sales of this bracelet go to help the people affected by the drought in Africa. It makes you feel good about shopping and it's really cute. 

Stay tuned for another accessories post about a purse from ASOS's. It should be coming soon, if my package arrives.

Beauty Aisle Browsin'

Today is just a short post but I thought I'd show you some pictures of some products at the beauty aisle at Loblaws that look really nice.

This is Essie's new fall collection. I love the autumn colours.

These are some special nail art nail polishes that just arrived at Loblaws and they look really neat but hard to use.

Maybelline Great Lash mascara but the special version where the brush is a heart. I think that's pretty cool but it should have come out around Valentines day.

Don't even really know what this is but the design on the compact is really fun.

Read The Small Print

A few days ago I was at We Day and waiting on my seat was a gift bag! Inside where some random things like a granola bar and a newspaper. There was also a lip balm which got me excited so I quickly pulled it out and applied it. I then turned to my sister and she told me I had blue lips at first I didn't believe her but a quick lip wipe proved her right. Turns out this lip balm is actually a sunblock with zinc and some interesting colour. It's made by Teck.I guess it could work as tinted lip balm 'cause it does moisturize. My advice, read the small print before you put it on your lips.

Sweater Weather

It is officially fall as of a few days ago so I thought I'd do a fall fashion post.

The big knit sweater is from Mendocino and is perfect for cold days 'casue it's pretty thick. I also really like the giant pockets and the buttons on the sleeves. The lace tank top is from Bluenotes and I have a lot of fun pairing it with different things. I think this outfit would go well with skinny jeans or leggings and a long necklace.

The shirt/sweatshirt is from Aritzia and I absolutely love the burgundy colour. The scarf is from Old Navy.

Hope you enjoyed.
