Review: Kat Von D Everlasting Lip Liner in OG Lolita

DSC04378

When I heard that Kat Von D FINALLY decided to introduce lip liners in her coveted makeup line, I was ecstatic! I’m completely obsessed with her liquid liners and lipsticks, so picking this baby up during the Sephora spring sale was on my to do list!

DSC04381

I love wearing lip liners by themselves, especially in the summer because it’s a super simple way to give your lips a stained-lips look. I decided to pick up the shade “OG Lolita” because the lipstick version of this shade is probably one of my favourite to wear. It looked pretty online and I figured you can’t go wrong.

DSC04385

What I love about the packaging of this product is the fact that I don’t have to sharpen the lip liner to get more product, all I have to do is twist it (I’m all about the easy way out with makeup). The colour of the shade resembles the colour of the lip liner packaging, which is also pretty awesome because if you’re on the go, you don’t have to waste time reading the package for the names or shades.

DSC04387

When I first saw this in the flesh, I loved everything about it instantly. I promise I’m not being biased because this is genuinely one of the best lip liners I’ve ever tried. This product states that it’s 24 hour wear, water-resistant and super weightless when on your lips. It’s supposed to be super comfortable and not drying at all, so that you can wear it by itself or layer with other products.

DSC04388

When I swatched this product, I was floored by how smooth it felt. It glided on my lips so smoothly and it didn’t dry them out. When I layered it with the Lolita lipstick, I was astonished by how gorgeous it looked together! Hit up my Instagram for pics (shameless promo). The shade is a matte dusty rose, which is a gorgeous nude for me! What I loved about this the most is the fact that I did everything throughout my day and NOTHING moved. The shade stayed intact and I didn’t even feel the need to apply lip balm. I’m so impressed by this particular shade that I cannot wait to pick up more of her other shades, she’s got like 30 of them to choose from! The colour is SO pigmented. If you need a new lip liner, THIS IS IT! It retails for $22 (CDN), which is a pretty decent price for the quality of product you’re getting!

Pros:

  • Weightless
  • Matte, pigmented
  • Smooth, not drying at all
  • Great price
  • 24 hour wear, water-resistant
  • Long-wearing, doesn’t move from your lips until you use makeup remover

Cons:

  • NONE

Rating: 10/10 

Netflix & Chill

Trying to find a show to binge watch on your sick days (or just to fill free time lolz)? I’ve got you covered. Here are some of my favourite shows to binge watch or even re-watch on Netflix:

Riverdale

giphy34

This show is a dark twist on the Archie comics and I love every bit of it. It’s crazy, it’s funny, and I love Veronica’s style!

13 Reasons Why

giphy35

Captivating plot and phenomenal acting by the whole cast! Also, the soundtrack is awesome! And, you literally want to give Clay a hug…all the time.

The Mindy Project

giphy36

No show has been more relatable for me than this one. Mindy’s hilarious one liners and her need to excel at everything is so hilarious to watch!

Master of None

giphy38

Okay, Aziz Ansari’s depiction of love on this show is hilarious. He’s cute and funny….is he single IRL?

The Crown

giphy39

A show depicting Queen Elizabeth’s reign from the beginning? Sign me up! Seriously, this is so addictive! And allllll those crowns are gorgeous!

Stranger Things

giphy37

This show follows a group of kids that are basically living D&D in real life. Also, I have a newfound love for eggos.

Bill Nye Saves The World

giphy40

I literally relived my childhood watching this on Netflix. Billlll Nyyyeee The Sciencee guyyyy…Bill Bill Bill (okay I will stop now).

House Of Cards

giphy41

I watched the first season in 13 hours and I haven’t stopped! Frank Underwood is a seriously deranged genius.

Gilmore Girls

giphy42

Honestly, who doesn’t want to move to Stars Hollow and drink coffee at Luke’s? I literally watch an episode whenever I have free time…because why not.

Girlboss

giphy43

A show about self-discovery and a twenty-something girl boss living her dream? Count me in. Also, the vintage fashion on this show is amazeballs.

Friends

giphy45

This show NEVER fails to make me laugh. Seriously. If you’re having a sucky day, this is the show you need to watch.

Chasing Cameron

giphy44

This reality show about a social media star is so addictively hilarious that I watched 4 episodes in one sitting. No lie. Can someone please give Taylor his diem!! lolz

Review: MAC Cosmetics’ Next To Nothing Face Colour & Powder

DSC04290

If you’ve been following me on Instagram, then you already know that I’ve been using this particular foundation (it’s not marketed as a foundation…but I’m going to call it foundation lol) for the past couple weeks. You know what this means? I’ve got a new review for you, just like old times!

What is it?

It’s an ultra glowy foundation created for a no-makeup makeup look. These babies are meant to give you a radiant glow while perfecting your skin. They include special micro-light thingamajigs, which I’m sure if you go on their website you can read about…I’m here to tell you my experience with using these two products.

The liquid version of this “Next-to-nothing” face colour line is absolutely flawless. I love the way it feels on my skin. It’s balmy and smooth. I layered it with a mattifying primer and I still got a gorgeous dewey look. I’ve used these alone and I’ve paired it with other products to see what the effect would be…and it was the same: perfect. It looks like you have a filter on your face without looking caked at all. It didn’t crease nor did it become oily throughout the day. I have combination oily skin, so I was really worried about that but it was flawless (if you want to head to my Instagram, you can see the results yourself. I used NO editing tools or filters on that picture).

The powder version of it is great too! I can definitely see myself using this throughout the summer time because neither of the two (alone or combined together) felt heavy on my face. It’s lightweight and very easy to blend. In fact, it felt like it gelled with my skin! MAC recommends that you use these with synthetic brushes and/or sponges and that’s exactly what I did and the results were amazing! My face was radiant and it works really well with other makeup too (i.e. blush or contour). 

If you’re looking for a no-makeup look face product…these are it. These picture well, they look gorgeous in person, they layer really well with other products and it makes you look like you have no make up on! I will mention that the shade range is limited. I didn’t swatch these here because ultimately with foundation it comes down to what your skin can gel with. And, I can definitely say: this is a product that will work with different skin types! It smells exactly like the Fix+. But overall, I really loved the way it looked on my skin! Also, the pressed powders are definitely more pigmented than the liquid form of this product, but both are buildable (which is perfect for the summer time).

Price:  

  • Liquid: $38 (CDN)
  • Powder: $32 (CDN)

Pros:

  • Lightweight, buildable, looks pretty on skin!
  • Leaves you with the perfect radiant glow!
  • Very natural looking, doesn’t crease or cake

Cons:

  • The smell can be problematic for some
  • Not a lot of shades in the range, which is a surprise for MAC

Overall Rating: 9/10 

 

 

 

 

How To Shop At Sephora

 

giphy33So you want to know how to shop at Sephora? Here are a few things I’ve learned since I practically live there (lolz):

MAKE SURE YOU HAVE A LIST because if you go in without one you will..(I’m being thousand percent real here)…end up purchasing things you do not need solely because it swatches gorgeously on your hands!

giphy23

If you’re going in without a list…I got you. Make sure you connect to the WIFI at Sephora (it’s legit free at all their locations) so that you can quickly google reviews…or go to your favourite bookmarked blog to see …*ahem*

giphy24

Navigating through Sephora is literally like a fun maze. There are multiple brands and products everywhere…SO… 

giphy25

ASK FOR HELP. The Sephora beauty experts that work there are geniuses (shout out to Sephora Square One for ALWAYS holding it down for me). You can ask them anything and they will always have immense knowledge of the items. Like seriously, what is non-touring? Why do I need to strobe!?

giphy26

Being at a Sephora is an emotional roller coaster (one that I enjoy tbh). For example (this really happened): I went to a Sephora to purchase Anastasia Beverly Hills’ Liquid Lipstick in Heathers. I swatched it and fell in love…only to be told it was sold out in store…and then I realized it’s okay, I can order it online on their website.

giphy22

Take advantage of their Skin IQ tester thingamabob (I’m sure there’s some scientific name). It literally matches to the closest shade in any foundation at Sephora. This makes it easier for the clerks and you to find the perfect foundation/concealer match!

giphy28

Sign up for their Beauty Insiders program! Bruh, what you waiting for? It’s free and you get access to products and sales and freebies….AND A BIRTHDAY GIFT!

giphy21

Be prepared to stand in line for….a while. (You can always order online)

giphy29

Sephora is notorious for giving out samples for free so ASK! If you’re a commitment phobe about certain products, then this is the perfect alternative for you!

giphy32

Don’t forget to check out their sale section, whether in store or online. I’ve gotten nail polish for like $3 before..which normally retails for $12. Score.

giphy30

HAVE FUN! I know it can be overwhelming but if you’re a beauty junkie like me…this place is better than Disneyland.

What Bollywood Has Taught Me…

giphy19

Honestly, Bollywood has taught me so much throughout my life and I wanted to share with you my favourite lol things I’ve learned! Enjoy! x

You’ll always wake up in the morning super happy and super flawless…

giphy18

Every monumental moment requires a song. No matter what. 

giphy

Falling in love will be your ticket to a totally different country filled with couture clothing for you and not much clothing for him because he’s worked hard on those abs.

giphy14

Being abandoned on an island is no problem at all. You can survive without hunting for food or anything really…(Thanks Kaho Na Pyaar Hai for this one).

giphy6

The family that prays together, eats together, stays together.

giphy8

Playing Holi (google it) is SO glam. There’s no clean up or mess involved…at all.

giphy5

Want to run away from your problems? Get on a train! 

giphy16

All the main leads are unbelievably hot. 

giphy12

Who needs an umbrella when it’s raining…you got love & a coat!
