Best Dressed At The Golden Globes 2018

Although I missed a portion of the Golden Globes last night, I must say that watching all the women (and men) dressed in black was my favourite thing to see ever. It was fun to see everyone accessorize and bring their own unique style into wearing black. If you want to know why black was the unofficial dress code, you can click here to read more. But without further adieu, here are my favourite looks from last night!

Review: Anastasia Beverly Hills Matte Lipstick in Buff & Rosewood

fullsizeoutput_990 (Buff on the left & Rosewood on the right)
When I heard that Anastasia Beverly Hills was going to launch a line of matte lipsticks (which aren’t liquid), I was beyond excited. If you know me, you already know that ABH’s liquid lipsticks are probably one of my favourite liquid lippies of all time! The bar was definitely set SUPER high for these lipsticks and I can’t wait to tell you if these exceeded my expectations or not!
What is it: As mentioned before, these are a line of matte lipstick made for people who aren’t into liquid lipstick but want the same long-lasting power as them. It’s super matte, full-pigmented and long-lasting on your lips. They retail for $23 (CDN) at Sephora (that’s where I got mine). I chose the shades Rosewood and Buff. Rosewood is described as a muted cherrywood and Buff is described as a nude salmon pink.
fullsizeoutput_991 (Buff on the top & Rosewood on the bottom)
The Good: So you’re probably thinking, if these lipsticks exceeded my expectations? YES. These lipsticks are fantastic. Specifically, Buff has become my go to nude shade for work. In fact, I’ve had numerous people ask me what I’m wearing on my lips whenever I have either of these two shades on! Buff is also great for days you don’t want to wear makeup but want something on your lips to add a little bit of glam in your life. Rosewood is equally gorgeous too! The formula of these lipsticks are INCREDIBLE. It’s pretty comfortable for a matte lipstick. It doesn’t dry out your lips at all. In fact, it feels like the lipstick is hugging your lips in the most gorgeous way (LOL yes I just wrote that). It’s smooth on application, which is not a surprise for ABH at all. Now these aren’t the most long-lasting lipsticks out there…especially when you compare them to the liquid lipstick line from ABH…BUT because the formula is so great, it’s not a huge downfall (for me). In a 12 hour period, I reapplied the lipstick twice, which isn’t TOO bad. The pigmentation of these lipsticks are wonderful. All the swatch pictures you’re seeing on here are only one swipe of the lipstick! The packaging is super simple and classic, which is cute! I love that ABH let the formula of the lipsticks do the talking and didn’t really make the packaging extra (lol). The price is also pretty decent. You really are getting your money’s worth with these babies. I can’t wait to pick up more shades from this line!

The Bad: NOTHING!

Review: Fenty Beauty Match Stix Trio in Tan (Truffle, Caramel & Rum)

fullsizeoutput_82e

I, along with the world, am slowly falling in love with practically every product that’s in Rihanna’s Fenty Beauty line. When I saw that Fenty Beauty had a curated “contour” kit, I just couldn’t resist and had to see what it was all about!

 

fullsizeoutput_82f

What is it: This cream-to-powder contour kit includes everything you need for the perfect contour. Fenty Beauty came out with 4 curated skin tone shade kits and I picked up the shade Tan because it seemed like it would work for my skin tone. The kit includes a Matte contour match stix in Truffle, a matte Concealer match stix in Caramel and a Shimmer highlight stix in Rum. All three of the “stix” are full-sized and are retractable. In addition to all that, they’re also magnetic, which makes it perfect for traveling!

 

fullsizeoutput_830

The Good: OKAY. THE FORMULA OF THIS PRODUCT IS EPIC. Yes, I needed to write all of that in caps to get my point across. No, seriously, the formula is amazing. It’s creamy enough to blend extremely well on to your skin but hard enough for it to not break off (hmm KKW needs to learn a thing or two from this range). Not only does this blend extremely well, it’s also buildable…which makes contouring super easy for newbies. The highlighting shade is SO pretty and you can definitely wear it as an eyeshadow too (bonus points for versatility). The longevity of these products are great! It definitely stayed on my face without any movement until I used makeup remover to take it off. It wasn’t cakey and I love how all three shades go so well with one another. And can we talk about the packaging? The fact that it’s magnetic is what sold it for me because I tend to lose products when I travel and *hopefully* I won’t now that they’re all stuck together (lol). Also, these stix are SO pigmented. You only need one swipe of this to do the work for you!

fullsizeoutput_831

The Bad: One of the only things I had a teeny issue with is the shade Caramel. Now, for me, it’s pretty much the same skin tone…so if you’re looking to have a brighter under eye look, then this is not going to do it. But needless to say, as a concealer to cover up acne or scars, this was great!

Overall Rating: 10/10 ($67 CDN at Sephora….the price is totally worth it)

 

Review: MAC Cosmetics’ Basic Bitch Eyeshadow Palette

fullsizeoutput_367

I bet you’re thinking…why did MAC just name a palette Basic Bitch? Don’t worry, I thought the same thing too. As a part of MAC’s Girls line, MAC released 6 limited edition “personality” eye shadow palettes. I will be reviewing 3 of the 6 palettes and this is the most talked about one….the Basic Bitch palette.

fullsizeoutput_356

What’s in the palette: This palette is filled with 8 eye shadows, which range from shimmers to mattes, and a highlighter. This palette is filled with greys, plums and purples…perfect for a smoky eye! The highlighter in Love this bitch (lolz) is a frosted baby pink highlighter. Sly Girl & Tattle-Tale (probably two of my favourite shimmer shades by MAC) are micro-glitter shimmering shades. Hell in Heels & Gameplayer are your creamy mattes. Me, Me, Me, Ms. Personality, Big White Lie and Text Me Later are satin shades. The packaging is pretty sleek and includes a mirror.

fullsizeoutput_355

The Good: Even past the controversy, I love everything about this palette. Majority of the shades are gorgeous on my lids and the names are super fun! I’m assuming MAC believes that the average basic bitch (I feel so strange writing the B word on my very G rated blog, but you know that’s life) is one that wants to have a smoky eye all the time. The formula of these shadows and the one highlighter are super-duper silky smooth. It wasn’t powdery when I swatched them and I loved how they just glided on without any fuss. The opacity is pretty decent, although some shades require you to pack on the shadow, majority of the shades are pretty opaque.

The Bad: So you can probably tell by the swatches that the colour pay off isn’t the best for some of the shades in this palette. BUT I will say the shades which didn’t have full opacity on first swatch, were super opaque when I spritzed my shadow brush with Fix+ to foil the shadows. They looked incredibly gorgeous. But aside from that, this palette is pretty awesome! I can see the name of this palette being an issue for a few and I wish the name wasn’t SO big on the palette.

Where you can get it: Any MAC retailer or MAC store for $48 (CDN).

Review: Tom Ford Beauty’s Cheek Colour Blush In Wicked

dsc02459

Hi Dolls! Hope you’re having an awesome day! If you haven’t checked out my previous post then you can do so by clicking right here. Today, I’ve got a review of a blush for you. This is not an ordinary blush though, this particular gem is made by the coveted Tom Ford Beauty line. And if you know me personally, you already know that Tom Ford has to be one of my favourite designers out there, specifically for men’s clothing (seriously he enhances the handsomeness of every man who wears his designs). So when he came out with a beauty line, you know I fangirled hard!

First Impressions

dsc02456dsc02463

When I first saw this at the Holt Renfrew counter, I was mesmerized. Even though it’s got a hefty price tag, I fell in love at first swatch. Literally. I’m not even kidding. I tried it on my cheeks in the store and it brightened up my complexion so much that I just had to have it. I opted for the shade called Wicked. The shade is your typical reddish pink and the formula on first touch felt smooth! What I instantly loved about this is the fact that it’s neither sheer nor super opaque (you know clown looking) and that’s the perfect formula for a blush. It’s a powder that is supposed to feel like cream on your cheeks.

Product Formula & Packaging

dsc02460

The formula of this blush is incredible. It’s smooth and it blends into your cheeks SO well. Since it’s a powder that’s meant to feel like a cream on your cheeks, it isn’t powdery at all. In fact, I didn’t have any sort of fall out even when I had it on my brush. It’s SUPER buildable. If you want a sheer glow added to your cheeks, then all you have to do is tap it on your cheek bones and blend. If you want bold pop of colour, then you can layer to build intensity without looking like a clown. It felt like velvet on my cheeks and it didn’t bother my skin or my foundation at all. Also, it stayed put until I used makeup wipes to remove it! I think the best way I can describe this blush’s feel is that it’s super luxurious….and I like. The packaging is adorable, sleek and very Tom Ford. It comes in a velour pouch, perfect for travel. It also has a ginormous mirror as well as the size of the blush is pretty big.

Packaging Rating: 10/10

Product Formula: 10/10

Swatches

dsc02465dsc02470

As I mentioned, the shade I went with is called Wicked. It’s a pink with hints of red. All I have to say is that this has to be one of my favourite blushes to go to just based on colour and opacity. You can build the colour, you can have it sheer…YOU are the one in control and that’s the best part! The colour payoff is magnificently great!

Swatch: 10/10

Price, Availability, & Accessibility

So, it does have a hefty luxurious price tag attached to it. You can have this for a cool $71 (CDN) and it can be found online or at any Tom Ford Beauty retailer. I got mine at Holt Renfrew.

Final Verdict

Despite the price, I absolutely love this blush. It’s luxurious. The colour payoff is incredible and the best part is that YOU have control over how much you want on your cheeks because it’s so blendable. If you’ve got extra cash around, this is for you!

Overall Rating: 9.5/10

7 Times Sonam Kapoor Slayed Her Style Game 

Hello Dolls! Hope you guys are doing great! As always, I’m back with a blog post for ya today and since my previous Bollywood style post was such a hit (thank you x), I’ve decided to bring you another style icon from Bollywood. But before you go ahead and read that, make sure you’ve checked out my last blog post. Also, don’t forget to follow me on Instagram for daily updates (also, my other socials are listed on the top of the page).

As I mentioned, this post is going to be about one of Bollywood’s most stylish actresses ever. Actually, she might be one of the most stylish actors to grace the world (there I said it). I’m talking about none other than Sonam Kapoor! If you want to know more about her, you can check out her wiki page. If we were to find a definition of what “#StyleGoals” was, it would be Sonam. Not only does this fashionista dress well, I also love how her hair and makeup are always on fleek. Below, you will find 7 of my favourite outfits Sonam has rocked (and let me make it clear, it was VERY hard to pick these because I practically love EVERYTHING she wears).

8b5fdf01593dbcc3fcb2bd94275cbd20

A plain red lehenga on paper sounds bland, but only Sonam can make this outfit look super fashion forward. Also, the matching red lips is perfect.

15e4ebeaa52124172381cbb6e4ba2f83 So, I have a soft spot for anything blush toned but this outfit is literally what I would call the perfect blush dress. Also, the heels and her hair are to die for.

315db5247566b2c66924e63f867d075cThis is something I like to wear pretty much every other day and in different colours. This one’s my fav because Sonam makes even the simplest outfit looks SO chic. Me likey.

a63ec2fcf2d9ff52568e250758df4121This has been one of my favourite gowns I have ever seen on ANY red carpet. Everything about this is perfect and I want this so I can wear it every single day (don’t judge me).

d02473e33e4229faf3be989750abcc0aThe flared pant suit can be tricky for some to pull off but this fashion icon does it effortlessly. Everything from the cut to the hair to the pointy shoes is flawless!

ec353541936f1fec7ecf1d98d30b039eAHH. GIVE ME THIS OUTFIT. RIGHT. NOW. Seriously, I’m speechless at the level of perfection here.

c5fea0ad011f521ced7ca1743b7ca497I’m a sucker for classy cutouts in a dress and THIS look here is nothing short of elegant and classy. Sonam, how do you do it!? Can we swap style brains?

See you in the next post!

7 Times Katrina Kaif Slayed Her Style Game

Hello Dolls! Hope you’re having a lovely day! If you haven’t checked out my previous post then you can do so by clicking right here! Okay, so I just realized that I haven’t made a Bollywood post in years (OMG, I’m slacking). So I figured with 2017 in full swing, I’ll start off my first Bollywood post of this year by talking about how obsessed I am with Katrina Kaif’s style. If you don’t know who she is, then you can check out her wiki page. She’s one of the most talked about celebrity in Bollywood because of the different movie roles she chooses and her impeccable style sense. Below you will find 7 of my favourite looks Kat’s been rocking (which you can re-create too).

9d1cbaef54c7d96cdd28d6f83564418b

Seriously, only Kat can make an all black basic outfit look mysteriously gorgeous. This is exactly how one rocks casual chic.

41de1a5c2cfdc96417c51c4aac0af431

I added this look here mainly because I have rocked something similar (you can check that out here). I really love the boho chicness of this outfit.

74f37237d889dfde42710c67e7cebf94

Jeans, Louis V and a coloured leather jacket together can only create the most stylish outfit. Seriously, this is what travel style is all about.

82a8f0626351ffe33f52388dbac10851

I love the watercolour printed mini dress Katrina is rocking here. The red strappy heels really enhances this look and I want to insert all the heart emojis here.

260a0404ee310ecde17acaeb61accbdc

Something about the dressiness and the casualness of this outfit makes my heart skip a beat. I love the colour combos!

10826583dae7792dfe772faa1355b3e3

Blush toned dresses are my weaknesses. Seriously, every single person needs to own at least one piece of blush toned outfit. Also, peep the flat sandals. So simple and elegant.

ab03299c4b14dd9dff3d2f118c57ef6d

Kat looks gorgeous here. The colour combination of her shoes and dress are perfect. Also, that hair….so pretty!

See you in the next post!
