Review: Lush Lip Scrub In Honey

fullsizeoutput_610

Whenever I walk into a Lush store, I’m overwhelmed with excitement! Although, I will be the first one to admit that I didn’t know much about Lush until a friend urged me to go and check out their soaps. Once I went inside, I was intrigued with everything these natural/handmade/organic products had to offer. This particular product had been on my list to try out and boy am I glad I did.

fullsizeoutput_60f

What is it: This is a handmade lip scrub. I picked up the Honey flavour because it smelled oh so yummy. This pot is filled with castor sugar crystals mixed in with honey, white chocolate (yes you read that right), vanilla and jojoba oil as well as tingly mint. It’s  meant to flake all the dead & dry skin off your lips while leaving them super soft and smooth.

How it works: This isn’t just your average lip scrub. Nope. Not at all. It’s edible. Seriously. I mean you can’t eat it in spoonfuls but you can def lick the excess off your lips (it says so on the bottle, I’m not making this up). This is probably because all the products used in this are natural. With a Q-tip (you can use your fingers too), I take a pea size amount and apply it to my lips. Depending on the severity of my lips (winter is brutal), I either use the Q tip or my lips to spread the sugar crystals around to “flake” off the dead skin. The best thing about this product is there’s no need to rinse…you just lick your lips off (LOL)….or you can apply lip balm after…whatever floats your boat.

fullsizeoutput_60e

The Good: I love the size of this product. You get so much in a tiny pot and you don’t even need to use a lot of the product. The texture of this product is pretty good. The sugar crystals don’t melt upon touch and stays in tact on your lips until you begin to “scrub”. It’s super gentle, which is a HUGE plus point especially for sensitive lips. It’s really easy to work with and there’s no fallout. Although the product is edible, I haven’t tried to eat it nor have I licked it despite it smelling oh so good! The scrub did what it said it would do, which is good!

The Bad: With everything being said…unfortunately, this wasn’t like a life changing product for my lips. It’s nice, don’t get me wrong, but I felt like it was pretty average. After I took off the lip scrub, my lips weren’t over the top moisturized and I definitely had to apply lip balm…but that was literally the only downside to it. Nonetheless, this isn’t a horrible product at all. The price of this is $10.95(CDN) and you can pick it up at any Lush store or online.

Review: Chanel Rouge Double Intensité Ultra Wear Lip Colour In Soft Rose (48)

fullsizeoutput_388

If you’ve been reading this blog for a while, then you already know my obsession with Chanel’s beauty products. Even though it’s super expensive (goodbye early retirement), Chanel’s beauty line is probably one of the nicest luxury beauty lines out there. When I heard that they were releasing a lip duo, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it!

fullsizeoutput_389

What is it: This long-wearing doubled ended lip product has a liquid lipstick on one end and a lip gloss on the other. They can be used individually or together, depending on what lip look you are going for. The shade I picked up is called Soft Rose, which is a dusty rose/mauve with a hint of shimmer. It’s a satin finish when worn alone. The packaging is really pretty. The black pot holds the gloss and the coloured part holds the liquid lipstick (duh lolz). The applicator’s base is gold. The liquid lip applicator is your typical liquid lipstick applicator and the gloss applicator is a brush (which I love!).

fullsizeoutput_38b

The Good: UHM. When Chanel says they’re giving you a long wearing lipstick/gloss duo, they definitely mean it times a million. My lip look did not budge or smudge or do anything other than stay on perfectly well. I tried using the liquid lipstick alone and even on its own, the lipstick did not fade at all. I also wore the gloss on its own and the same thing. NOTHING MOVED. I loved how easy it was to wear and can we take a moment and appreciate the smell of this product? I’m assuming if Chanel ever decided to sell chocolates, this is what it would smell like. The opacity of the liquid lipstick was really good. You can build up the intensity or you can wear it as a stain alone. The lip gloss is not sticky and just perfect. The lip shades look great on its own or with the gloss. Like I mentioned, this lip product stayed on for a lot longer than I thought and because I was super curious to see if it would last all night long…I ended up going to bed with this product on and there was no transfer on my bedding or pillow. Also, did I mention this DOES NOT MOVE OR BUDGE? I had to use warm water and makeup remover to remove it!

The Bad: I will say that the price point might be the biggest drawback. If you’re looking to invest in a GOOD lip product, then this is definitely it. You truly are going to get your money’s worth with this one. Remember, you’re getting a liquid lipstick and a gloss in one! So totes worth it!

Where you can get it: I picked up mine from the Chanel counter at The Hudson’s Bay (hello points!) for $45 (CDN).

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

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!
