Limited-Edition Mary Kay® Lip Lacquer Pink Pagoda

I've been getting sick on and off lately- so I apologize for my lack of posts.
I'm currently shopping my makeup stash. You wouldn't believe how many products you can find just by looking through your traincases and drawers. It's insane.

I will be doing a new series on my blog where I highlight products I own in effort to use/fall in-love with them again. I hope these short posts will inspire you to go through your own stashes or find/use similar products that you own!

This week I was looking for spring colours to add to my beauty regime. During my search, I remembered I had this gorgeous Limited-Edition Mary Kay® Lip Lacquer called Pink Pagoda ( $18.00 CAN).

This lightweight formula glides on for a jelly finish that feels extremely moisturizing and smooth. The intense, stay-true colour has a superglossy finish that’s so on-trend.
I love how bright the pink is. The colour you see in the jar is literally the colour you get when applied to the lips. I have pigmented lips- so I like the fact that it shows up vividly. It also came with a retractable lip brush! 

Do you own a colour like this?

Hard Candy Spring 2013

I recently I had the opportunity to attend the Hard Candy Spring 2013 Launch party in Toronto.
I love Hard Candy! I've reviewed them on the blog before. They have great products which can be found at your local walmart. I took a fellow beauty blogger Rasilla with me to get the scoop on what's new for 2013.

This February you will see Hard Candy apparel in-stores($12 to $18 US). The apparel was fun. Sequins, hearts & stars. Typically the type of items that every girl has in her closet. It's more weekend wear for me because I work in an office. But If you are your a tween/teen it's very cute for school.

Check out some of the new items:

Is there a product that you have your eye on?
