Luxury Lipstick Holiday 2013

{Luxury Stocking Stuffers: The for the lipstick lover}

Holiday 2013 is swelling with sensational finds for beauty lovers. If you’re stuck thinking of a gift for a special lady in your life (be it a mentor, boss, girlfriend mother-in-law) you can never go wrong with a luxurious lipstick. Find out their signature lippie shade – stock them up.

Sephora single handedly blew me away with all their super-fabulous gifts and even more so…the value of them is bananas.

More info on the sets to come but for now, I give you the lipstick edit…

 Marc Jacobs Luxury Lipstick Gift Limited Edition

{ Marc Jacobs LoveMarc Lip Gel in Showstopper}

Marc Jacobs beauty wasn’t mind-blowing with it’s recent release but one stand out product has to be the Lip Gel. An incredibly hydrating and creamy formula, the traditionally black, magnet snap packaging makes a gal feel like a million bucks. This limited edition version  in Showstopper ($36) is what’s up for the Holidays.

Dior Diorific Luxury Lipstick Holiday 2013

{Dior – Diorific Lipstick in Minuit and Diva}

Sitting in a restaurant and my Diorific falls out “Is that a vibrator?” a colleague asks. Why no…no it’s not. Sexual toys aside trust me when this lipstick is what every mature wants packed in her purse. It was a guy that made the comment – of course he’d say that!

If you think a hard red may be too strong for your lucky lady, opt for the shade, Minuit ($40). It has a hint of pink to it.

Bite Beauty High Pigment Holiday 2013 gift tin

{Best Bite Set}

COME ON. $28?!?! Bite, you may as well have given this ridiculously beautiful tin away to us. For the price of one lipstick you can get a stocking stuffer that will legit blow any lipstick-lover away.

Bold and bare shades of mini (but my god are they sizeable) High Pigment Lip Pencils all housed in the cutest, matte tin. I should just buy extras while they’re still around.

{Maybelline Color Sensational vivids Collection}

 Sara Baker!

Congrats girl! You’ve won SIX of these incredible lipsticks! Let your spring/summer of colour begin!

During Toronto Fashion Week I ran a contest for a lucky gal to win six of Maybelline’s Color Sensational Vivids Lipsticks. I honestly cannot pick a favourite. Shocking Coral (bottom right) is currently my favourite pink lippie – so brightening. Hot Plum (bottom left) is my favourite ‘high-fashion’ shade – so sexy! Vivid Rose and Electric orange (the two middle shades) are my favourite everyday wear shades. Gah how’s a girl to choose one?!

Do you have a favourite vivid?

Eyeshadows

{The Shadow Playground}

One week, last month I received an influx of shadows and saw it as a sign. My beauty ‘New-Year’s Resolution’ was to wear more eyeshadow and to be fair, I have been trying! Below you can find some fun that I had with my dear friend Natalie Korol with these new eye shadows for the spring season. Read on for my library of favourites and which shades are must-haves for their stand-out factor.
