Current Obsession: Essence Stay With Me Long-Lasting Lipgloss

Essence Cosmetics is a brand that I carry everywhere I go. Whether it's their eyeliners, mascaras or lip glosses- the line is amazing! NOTHING is over $5.00 CAN. Plus they're always coming out with new products and colour stories. I'm obsessed with their Stay With Me Long-Lasting Lipgloss ($2.99 CAN)!
The name Stay With Me Long-Lasting Lipgloss by Essence says it all! The color-intense texture is so wonderfully creamy and durable that it's simply irresistible. It won't even leave a sticky feeling behind. The special shape of the precision applicator allows an effortless application. Trendy colors are waiting to make your lips pop!

I have pigmented lips and some lip products don't show up "true to colour". These glosses are vivid, moisturizing and provide even coverage. I found this colour at shoppers on sale for $1.00. 
It's called "Pretty Witty". 

Do you own any of the Essence Stay With Me Long-Lasting Lipglosses?

The Body Shop: Lip Glosses and Eau de Toilettes

New goodies are out at The Body Shop! 
They're colourful and smell so yummy!

I'm a huge fan of body butters so I'm extremely excited that I can now spritz on my fave scent.

Simply spritz on your pulse points for a targeted burst of light and wearable scent($14 each).

Eight fragrances:
  • Strawberry
  • Moringa
  • Coconut
  • Mango
  • Shea
  • Satsuma
  • Pink Grapefruit
  • Vanilla

Satsuma is my favourite scent right now! Smells like a zingy sweet orange.
Before I go to work I spray it on my shirt and I swear eight hours after I still smell it.

There are 11 super-glossy, mouth-watering shades to choose from, each with a succulent fruity flavour to lift your mood.

Your lips are left moisturized smooth and kissably soft thanks to our new formula enriched with vitamins E and B5 and Community Fair Trade organic virgin coconut oil. Perfect for a dewy spring look!  ($10 each)

I love having a gloss that smells true to it's scent. 
As you can see above some of the glosses have a slight shimmer and some are just a gloss.

Anastasia Beverly Hills: Want You To Want Me Eye Shadow Palette & Kisses On My List Gloss Set

 It's about time I start sharing holiday collection information. 
 I need to come to the realization that Summer is gone.

I have nothing but good things to say about the Anastasia Beverly Hills line.

I've been duped! Sephora & Make Up For Ever glosses

It's so easy to get duped. You go out shopping you see something that catches your eye and once you get home.... You realize that you have 50 other products that look the same.

Does this sound like you? 
Well..That's totally me!

I originally was gifted with the MUFE Lab Shine Diamond Collection from Fabdiva20, sometime last year.
On one of my trips to Sephora I picked up a "similar" pretty pink gloss.

MUFE Lab Shine $18- $20
SEPHORA Lip Gloss $3.00 (on sale)
Can you guess which gloss is which?
They look VERY similar! 

Mary Kay: The Art of Nature Collection Lip & Cheek 2012

 Mary Kay has slowly moved into being one of my top five favorite brands. 
I admire their quality and ability to come out new eye catching products.

This Spring they came out with a fun collection called The Art of Nature.
 With the limited-edition* The Art of Nature Collection, important fashion elements of abstract art meld with the latest innovations in nature-enriched beauty.
One of my favorites from the line is the Dual Lip Glaze.
Comes in two different colors:
  • Warm Coral
  • Glistening Sands
Inspired by the calming gleam of the ocean, Mary Kay®
Dual Lip Glaze* instantly moisturizes lips with a high-
shine finish. Soothing botanicals like aloe, shea butter and
safflower oil glide on smoothly to soften and protect lips.
The unique tube-in-tube design contains a clear gloss in
the outer tube and rich colour in the centre. To release
maximum shine and colour, squeeze the tube from the
bottom centre.
 Glistening Sands is currently my everyday lip glaze. 
  • I don't need a mirror to apply it. 
  • Its not full of glitter or sticky.
  • It looks good with every look
  • Very moisturizing.

I also found the Natural cheek tints interesting!
Two Colors:
  • Pink Pearl
  • Sheer Copper
Capturing the breathtaking beauty of coral reefs and
earthy tones of the canyon, Mary Kay ® Natural Cheek
Tint* offers a lightweight, bounce-to-the-touch formula
that glides on smoothly and effortlessly.
At first glance they look like powder..right?
After playing with them look at the consistency!

GLEAM Lip & Body Radiance by Makeup Artist Melanie Mills

As a beauty blogger/MUA it's important to try out different brands. Earlier this year, I had the chance to try out some products from Emmy Award Winning makeup artist Melanie Mills. This was my first time hearing about Melanie but after learning about her impressive resume I had get my hands on her products. Her client list includes such notable entertainers as Brandy, Nicole Scherzinger, Kim Kardashian and more.

GLEAM Lip Radiance will be available in seven juicy shades that are tailored to fit every skin tone. Designed to make one’s lips “pop” and made with organic and botanical ingredients, GLEAM Lip Radiance not only moisturizes the skin but it can be used alone without lip liner and lasts all day – or night –long.

Left to Right: Unstoppable, With my Heels on, Up again the Wall & Unforgettable
The colors are GORGEOUS! 
Extremely smooth and pigmented.
I'm happy I picked four colors that work perfectly with my skin tone.

Don't believe me?
Check out these lip swatches!

"Unforgettable", Eggplant purple

"Up Against the Wall," a stunning siren brick red

"Unstoppable", a rich hot coral

"With My Heels On", a pure pop of fuchsia pink

GLEAM Body Radiance creates a natural lit from within glow for the skin in an easy application. The lightest to the deepest complexions are all made luminous by a formula that hides skin imperfections, even filling wrinkles and enhancing the texture of the skin thanks to GLEAM Body Radiance’s velvety botanical base. GLEAM can be applied in a light touch to highlight shoulders, décolleté or to massage in liberally like a lotion, for all-over perfection.
I blended them both into each other. 
I really wish my camera could pick up how gorgeous this looked!
