“Are you going to keep your blog going,” asked my girlfriend, Roop. My immediate response was simply that I didn’t know. Moving across the world is a little exhausting and there are so many things to consider – then you’re bombarded with the copious number of things that creep up on you unexpectedly.

{Clear Intense Hydration}

Today I got some pretty exciting beauty mail. Some of you may know that since I’ve come to Canada I’ve been experiencing some severe hair loss. It’s no surprise. Okay fine, I’ll admit I have a bad habit of touching my scalp a little way too much but because of this, I know it’s in bad condition.

A few months ago a colleague highly recommended Clear’s Scalp & Hair products to help rid me of the bumps on my scalp and better my hair growth. Needless to say I’m excited to finally try it! Full review on these babies to come and yes I will be rockin’ a summery floral headband to boot.

{Maybelline Color Sensational The Buffs}

I’m not one to rant and rave and review an entire collection of products without a particular story in mind but this lipstick collection just had to take centre stage. Despite my intitial hesitations about the nude collection to precede, I’m so impressed…

maybelline color sensational

{Good enough to eat…}

You know me. I hate nudes.  I very rarely wear nudes cuz I’m a bold girl all the way but since I’ve started making more effort with eye shadow, I’ve been becoming more accepting.

Then the Maybelline Buffs collection happened and I’m all over it.

lipstick the buffs

{High pigment creams}

A collection of high-pigment, caramel, vanilla and berry, creamy lipsticks that offer the second edition to last year’s Colour Sensational Vivids. If you’ve followed the blog since then you’ll know I was so mad about those lipsticks I wore them all through Fashion Week…

{The swatches}

While I do love all of these colours I obviously can’t pull them all off – I’d rather not look washed out. The nudes offer a range of colours to suit a variety of skin tones and for my olive (okay now grey/yellow) complexion I prefer the caramel/berry tones.

From left to right:

Stormy Sahara

Truffle Tease

Untainted Spice

Nude Lust

Bare All

Blushing Beige

Maple Kiss

Tom Ford Lipstick in Cherry Lush Review

Tom Ford Lipstick Cherry Lush

{Tom Ford Lipstick – Cherry Lush}

If you’re not new to this page then you’ll know that I have an inexplainable addiction to red lipstick. “How can I top this?” I asked myself. How can I satisfy this never ceasing urge to coat my lips in the silkiest of fiery red formulas? Two words. Tom Ford.

Tom Ford Lipstick Cherry Lush Swatch

{February birthday gift in November}

I actually meant to purchase this as a birthday gift to myself back in February. I figure it counts more now than ever because I can’t remember what my personal gift was back then – IT’S TOTALLY JUSTIFIABLE, RIGHT? As if.

Tom Ford Cherry Lush

{The Review}

Down and dirty – this lipstick is everything I thought it would be and more. It’s bright, it’s silky, it’s long wearing (actually… wasn’t expecting that one).

The only downfall (aside from the hefty price tag of $55)? You simply must wear a lip liner before applying.

Bleed central with this bad boy. I don’t believe these come with a matching lip liner so I’d recommend Givenchy’s Lip Rouge Liner – it’s the perfect match of a cherry red. Just marry me already!

Tom Ford lippies are available at Holt Renfrew – now alongside the full cosmetics collection.
