Hello all! It’s March which means spring is around the corner and the weather is insanely unpredictable. Seriously, it’s like Mother Nature has PMS for a month and can’t decide whether she wants to snow us in or flood us with a melt down – so she does both! During this trying month I’ve done some comfort spending and I’m excited to talk about some new products and some old faves.
BITE’s Butter Cream Lipstick in Rosewood:
What can I say? Nat has me loving the Bite beauty brand. I’m not much of a lipstick girl (as I’ve lamented before I have insanely dry lips) but this lipstick had me intrigued. It’s infused with five nourishing, aromatic butters, including lavender, shea, almond, pomegranate, and chamomile so it’s the best lipstick/lip balm cross breed I’ve ever tried (and I’ve tried a BUNCH!). The fact that this line is all in neutral colours makes it super hard to choose which one to buy. I settled on Rosewood a deliciously neutral plum pink. It’s gorgeous in the packaging and on! The one thing I’m not a big fan of is the flat shape – don’t get me wrong, it’s cute, it’s just makes application to the cupid bow a bit more difficult without a brush (or q-tip in a pinch). Overall I very much appreciated this treat and I love even just wearing it around the house when I need a quick and easy beauty boost.
Tarte Park Avenue Princess Contour Palette
I was able to pick up this beauty on sale in the new year and I have to say it’s a pretty palette for spring. I love how all the colors work together and the formula is divine. This is my first foray into Tarte complexion products and I have to say that I’m impressed with it’s long lasting sublime finish. Now I just need to find the time to improve my contouring skills! (And the weather needs to smarten up so I can walk down an avenue like a princess without slipping on ice!)
Benefit Cosmetics Instant Brow Pencil:
This is a great pencil for fabulous natural-looking brows. I’ve used all sorts of brow products over the years such as gel, pencil, powder and every combo that’s been imagined but my search ended once I got a hold of this beauty. This waxy pencil glides on easily, keeps any unruly hairs in place and then, the best part is that it leaves a natural powder-like finish! The other great thing is that the pencil comes accompanied by a special blending spoolie so it’s two items in one! I love love love this product and I can’t believe it’s taken me this long to talk about it.
Ciate Nail Polish:
This nail polish lasts! Here’s a pic of this amazing peacock colour called ‘Superficial’ and it’s lasted over a week! Here’s a pic!
It’s sustained a quick application and a week of taking care of a house and an infant. It doesn’t have alot of the crap that other nail polishes have so I don’t feel bad wearing it around my little one.
