L'Oréal Infallible Pro-Matte Glosses- SWATCHES

The popularity of matte lipsticks aren't going anywhere any time soon. One complain that I hear a lot is how "drying' they are. My recommendation would be the L'Oréal Infallible Pro-Matte Glosses ($13.99 CAN).

Doe foot applicator perfect for sculpting your lips.

These highly pigmented matte glosses have a velvety texture when applied.
They're also long-lasting. Perfect to wear all night!

I received four colours but I swatched the two colours that would flatter my skin tone the best.
**Note: If these are too glossy for you- take a tissue- blot and you have a matte lip without the shine**

Shanghai Scarlet & Forbidden Kiss

Marcelle + NYX Matte Lip Cream + Self portrait

Hey Ladies!

It's been a while since I've done a self portrait. Believe it or not, I'm holding the camera with my right hand. I've perfected this because nobody has the patience to wait for me to take the perfect "shot". After 20 pictures this one was my favorite!

I'm not sure if you can see my clothing but I'm rocking my favorite Jessica Simpson denim vest with a long black tank.

I need to highlight my "Canadian eyes":
Marcelle Waterproof Eyeliner - Midnight Black
Marcelle Xtension Plus Mascara - Black

Marcelle (Canadian brand) has great EXTREME black liners and mascara.

I've been obsessed with reds this year. I think I should do a post on my favorites soon. Here I'm rocking NYX Matte Lip Cream in Monte Carlo.
I bought it at IMATS Toronto last year for $3.00.
If you are a matte lipstick wearer, I'd definitely recommend these.
Soft, creamy & long lasting.

Would you wear this color? Why or why not?

Do you prefer a Matte or Dewy foundation finish?

I personally prefer a matte finish. My T-zone can get really oily at times so I feel like it's better to be maintain a matte look. Here I used MAC Prowear in NW45 with a combo of  Per-Fekt Beauty Decadent skin perfector. I combat oil with Kett Sett - No-Color Setting Powder & MAC Blot Film!

One of these days I plan on going "Dewy" ...maybe summer. 
I think if I spray some Fix+ or Charge water on my face, it should do the trick.

Do you prefer a Matte or Dewy foundation finish? What foundation do you use?

My new love: Revlon Matte Lipstick in Wine

A few weeks ago I was invited to LG Fashion Week by another beauty blogger named Davida. By total coincidence I was downtown filming in the same location as LGFW, so I didn't have time to go home. Also I left all my makeup at home so I had to run a store...ASAP.

After swatching over 20 lipsticks in Shopper's Drug Mart.. Relvon Wine stood out above the rest!

They're moisturizing and not drying like other matte lipsticks. Also it doesn't settle in the lines of my lips..which is a horrible sight to
