Review: NYX Vivid Brights in Vivid Envy & Vivid Sapphire


I’m a sucker for coloured liquid liners. Something about the bright pop of colour just does it for me! When I was at the NYX Cosmetics store, I picked these two shades up on whim. In my head, I was thinking that it’s okay if these liners don’t work out because they were only $10 each. I mean could these really be as bright and vivid as the bottle claimed?


What is it: As I mentioned, these are bright coloured liquid liners that are supposed to give you intense colour payoff all while remaining long wearing. I picked up the shades Vivid Envy and Vivid Sapphire. Vivid Envy is a gorgeous bright green. Vivid Sapphire is an intense bright blue. It’s not in a pen format but rather a wand (when you see the picture you’ll understand what I mean). It’s pretty simple to use, even if you’re not comfortable using liquid liners. The applicator is perfect for making thin or thick lines with ease! It retails for $10 (CDN).


The Good: I have never been this impressed by a liquid liner. Especially one that is under $15. Let me first begin by saying how pigmented these liners are. The above picture is only one swipe of the colour. I took it before it dried so I can show you how pigmented the colours are. The formula of these are super creamy and easy to apply onto your lids. I found that it didn’t dry super fast but it wasn’t slow either. Once it was dry, the liner was matte and bright…just like its name! It was easy to use the wand to apply the liner and I was able to make my lines as thick or thin as I wanted. Another impressive quality of these liners are the fact that I was able to use it on my lower lash line and it didn’t irritate my eyes. This product is also super long wearing. My eyeliner didn’t move until I used makeup remover to remove it!


The Bad: N O T H I N G!

Overall Rating: 10/10

Best Dressed Celebrities: Taylor Swift

It’s Wednesday and you know what that means? It’s Woman Crush Wednesday! This week’s Woman Crush Wednesday is none other than the gorgeous Taylor Swift! This country turned pop singer has been making waves ever since her debut and has created a career graph that only one can dream of. Taylor has not only grown up musically and lyrically but her style has immensely changed over the years. This girl next door’s fashion sense is incredible. Her street style is to die for. I often find myself pinteresting her outfits so that I can recreate them. Even her signature red lips have created a trend. Her hair has gone through a lot of changes since her debut, but she has always rocked any hairstyle really well. Although, she always tries to play it safe with her outfits, I’m finding that lately, she has upped her style game. Perhaps, it has to do with the fact that she is now living in New York City. The best way to describe her style is classy & sassy. Currently, she is basking on the success of her pop album, 1989 (seriously an amazing album). Whether she’s going to the gym or she’s strolling the streets of NYC, this fashionista is always dressed to impress and that is why she’s become one of the best dressed celebrities of this generation. Below you will find some of my favourite outfits Taylor has rocked:


Taylor’s flower printed royal blue dress is very chic. The headband, the structured purse and the adorable bow kitty heels are fantastically put together. Loose curls, flawless skin and her signature red lip finish this adorable look!


Taylor’s ensemble is here very classy chic and amazing. The checkered buttoned shirt paired with light skinnies and lace up heels are a great combination. A structured crossbody, straight hair and red lips finish up this casual look.


Taylor’s polka dot shift dress is so simple yet stylish. She accentuates her waist with a brown belt. Again, she is carrying a structured purse which she has nicely paired up with amazing ankle boots! Her signature hairstyle is perfect with her flawless skin!


This ensemble is beautiful! The sand pea coat, checkered scarf, & fingerless gloves are perfectly paired with burgundy skinnies. Her boots are amazing. Taylor finishes this classy look with her signature hair, red lips and a structured purse.


How incredible does Taylor look in this gown? The embroidered off the shoulder bodice is beautiful. The white flowy bottom adds drama to this classic look and she looks great! T finishes this look with her signature red lips and swept back hair.


This is one of Taylor’s stylish rainy day ensembles and it looks great! The black leather jacket paired with the skater skirt, tights and ankle boots are rocker chic. She finishes this trendy look with a structured purse & simple hair/makeup.


Only Taylor Swift can make something so simple look so fashionable. The stylish striped top paired with dark denim skinnies is splendid. The red tennis shoes adds the perfect pop of colour. Sunnies, a structured crossbody, red lips and a ponytail finish this simple yet stylish look!


Taylor is channeling her inner Jacky O in this ensemble. T’s black collared A line mini dress is stunning! Black flats with bows are perfect with this classic look. As always, she finishes the look with red lips, sunnies, sleek ponytail and a structured purse.


How cute is this ensemble T.Swift is rocking? The adorable pleated blush skirt combined with a black scoop neck t-shirt is very stylish. The burgundy flats are super trendy. As always, Taylor finishes this polished & classy look with her signature red lips, loose curls & a structured purse!

Best Dressed Celebrities: The Billboard Music Awards 2014

Who watched the Billboard Music Awards last night? The show was a treat for any music lover! Although, most of the show was just based around performances, fashion was a big thing last night as well. Being an avid music lover of any genre, this was really fun to watch. My favourite performances of the night were Iggy Azalea, Imagine Dragons, Miranda Lambert & Carrie Underwood, and Jennifer Lopez (PS who else agrees with me that JLo and Iggy need to do a collaboration?). Besides the music, red carpet style was fantastic to see this year! As usual there were misses but it seemed there were a lot more hits, this time around. I literally had a hard time deciding who would make my list. One of the biggest trend witnessed on the carpet was the structured clutch. Seriously, almost every female celebrity had some variation of that clutch. With that being said, here are my favourite looks from the night along with my favourite songs of theirs (in no particular order):

iggy-azalea-290Iggy Azalea

Iggy looks stunning in this deep red flowy race gown. The simple hair and the makeup compliment the whole look. She is becoming a red carpet favourite for me (here’s my favourite song of hers).
