Winter Wishes

Hey loves, winter is going to be here in a few short months well...for those who live in Alberta like me it's already beginning! Here's my wish list for those chilly winter months. 
The 25 piece E.L.F brush set (I just so cheekily ordered this actually...oops) The newly released MAC Rihanna lipstick, I am such a fan of reds. Oh la la! The Beetlejuice Blackmilk leggings, I've been dreaming of owning a pair of Blackmilk leggings for a long time and I've been on a buying binge lately on their website, once again oopsies. A wine red dress from Aritzia, such a beautiful color for winter! A white knit sweater from Topshop. Hello sweater weather, would it not be cute with those striped leggings? The last thing on my "condensed" wish list haha is a pair of Tory Burch riding boots which I most likely will not be buying but hey a girl can dream...
What's on your winter wish list? Let me know!

Covergirl Lip Perfection -- Verve

Hello everyone, it's a lippie review today. As you know I am a lipstick freak, every girl has their favorite product right? Well mine is lipstick. Today's review is on the shade 370 - Verve from the Covergirl Lip Perfection lipstick line.

As you can see from the above swatch it's a very frosty pink and I know there a lot of people who in the world with a hate on for that frost finish. I'm not going to say it's my favorite but with my pale skin I don't think it looks bad or tacky so I actually own quite a few frosty lipsticks. I own three other colors from this collection and they tend to turn into another color with longer wear but I've yet to experience that with this one and yes CG's lipsticks do STAIN the lips, just a forewarning. The staying power of these lipsticks is great and the pigmentation is also great so for $9.99 CAD you can't really go wrong. There are other colors in the line that do not have the frosty finish the only one I own without the frost is the Hot Passion which I adore, it is a bright red! Covergirl doesn't have the best lip products but I would give these a solid rating and recommend you check them out.

*August Favorites

It's the end of the month and that means blogs are going to be flooded with the latest and greatest. My products are not so much on the new end but they were my most used of the month.

First is the Color Shield collection from Garnier Fructis. I dyed my hair just for the occasion! These products are fantastic. Remember those first couple of showers after dying your hair and watching as the color runs through the water, the Garnier Fructis Shampoo and Conditioner locks in your color I haven't noticed any run of color in my showers. Couldn't be more happy with these products, the spray bottle is a heat protectant and shine spray meant for colored hair and it does a good job of keeping your hair smooth and not brittle.
(* Note: these products were sent to me by Influenster for review purposes but all opinions are my own)

Second is Batiste - Dry Shampoo, I know this stuff has been around for ages however I've only recently decided to give it a shot, this is my third bottle in about a month and a half this one was on sale for $5.99! I have the unfortunate gift of incredibly greasy hair and it's horrible having to wash it everyday especially for the natural oils in your hair so with this I end up needing to only shower about three times a week. Thank you Batiste.

The Benefit "Bronze of Champions" kit mostly the Hoola bronzer and the Watt's up highlighter. Watt's Up has been used just about everyday the past month and is still being used daily, gives the face a beautiful champagne shimmer and the bronzer is well a cult favorite among many. For my pale skin its about the only thing that doesn't make it look like I rubbed my face in dirt.

Rimmel's Wake Me Up Foundation. Great for summer as it's not heavy but provides decent coverage and if required is buildable. Did I mention it smells super fruity?! I love love love this foundation my favorite drugstore foundation to date.

The Maybelline master precise liquid eyeliner. The easiest eyeliner you will ever use. Honestly go out right now and buy it. I've been using this eyeliner for over five years and I have not strayed it's that great. If you have trouble with liquid eyeliner don't be afraid this will solve all your troubles.

The last two are fashion items, the first is a gold multi chain necklace from Dynamite. I do not buy real jewelery, frankly I can't keep a necklace from breaking to save my life so this luckily was only $8.00! It goes with EVERYTHING, it's the perfect statement necklace. Lastly, are the Sleeping Beauty leggings from the Princess and Villain Collection from Blackmilk. I am the biggest Disney fan and these are everything and more I could ask from a legging. Actually I've been on quite a Blackmilk binge lately. Anyone out there who lives in leggings like I do? Check out Blackmilk!
