KVD Everlasting Liquid Lip Collection

 

  {left to right: Lolita II, Mother & Outlaw}

Hello loves!
Has anyone lost one of their favorite lipsticks? Well, this recently happened to me with Lolita. I used to own the original and of course I went out one night and it was never to be seen again.

Although I don't have a large KVD lip collection her formula and colors are some of my favorites. You can bet that this obsession will continue to build.

I only own three currently. I guess four if you count the Lolita I lost. Such a shame.

Lolita II - Though not as lovely as the original Lolita it's still a lovely color that wears well with multiple looks. 

Mother - A gorgeous pink. This one happens to my least favorite of the three. Nothing against the formula though. I just tend to either gravitate more towards nudes or reds. 

Outlaw - My absolute favorite. If you know me you know red is my signature color. This is the perfect cool toned red that looks great with my pale, ghastly skin!

 Albeit, the KVD formula being quite drying her color range is impressive and anyone should be able to find a color that suits their needs. I can't wait to add more of these to my collection. I believe there were even new shades added to the range this year.

Who makes your favorite liquid lip?

#instaflawless

 

Good afternoon loves.
I hope you're all having a lovely weekend. 
Rimmel released their Insta collection a while back but I never bothered picking anything up. I've been wanting to try a cream contour for a while now but didn't want to go buying an expensive palette until I tried it out.
While browsing needlessly in Shopper's I spotted this little compact on sale. I'd read previous reviews on it and they weren't great but it was only eight dollars so I figured there was no harm in trying.
I got mine in 010 - Light.
 

 

Sleek and compact the packaging includes a photo on the back showing where to use the products which is handy for beginners in makeup or cream contouring like me.

 Easy to use, the products are extremely creamy and blend out easily on top of foundation. I'm not a fan of the highlight shade as it's matte and I love a blinding highlight. The highlight almost acts as more of an illuminating concealer. The concealer was creamy and easy to build up. I use it on my under eyes and have had minimal issues with it creasing. I saw another reviewer saying it clung to dry patches but I haven't noticed it on my skin and as my readers know I have extremely dry skin.
The contour shade is a tad too orange but it does blend out nicely. Bbeing fair skinned if a shade is too orange it  tends to make the face look muddy. Due to that I do have to be careful when applying.

It's a handy, compact palette that is great for on the run or traveling. Having tried this I am hoping to try out some other cream contour products to see how I get along with them.

What's your favorite way to contour?

NOTD - Sephora {Spread The Word}


I swear, I'll never get the hang of painting my nails. 
But, I can't be bothered with fakes although they look stunning and I'd love to try out a marble set. Maybe during summer, we'll see.

Sephora's Spread the Word is a bright fuchsia, more of a summer color but it's okay to break the rules sometimes right?
This polish has a wide brush making it easy to coat the nail in one swipe. Opaque this color only needs one coat in all honesty but I always apply two no matter what I'm wearing. We're on the third day with only minimal chipping around the nail bed, not bad! Comparing to Essie which usually ends up chipping before the end of the first day. Not to mention, I didn't use a base or top coat with this.
I think the Sephora brand has a lot of gems. Their nail polish has a great formula, opaque color and smooth application for a decent price. 

What's your favorite polish brand?

PORES BE PURE


 Happy hump day everyone!
The middle of the week, only a few more days and we're home free for the weekend. 
Lately, I've been feeling like I needed something extra in my skin care routine.
Introducing the Formula 10.0.6 Pores Be Pure face mask.

I have a love/hate relationship with masks. If I find one I like I'll use it consistently until the products gone and then it'll be another three to four months before I pick up a new one. I haven't found yet that really wows me but the hunt continues.

I'll start with this, if you are sensitive to scents you will hate it. It's strongly scented. Being infused with strawberry extract it smells like, you guessed it berries! I love the scent and how it lingers as the mask drys.
To use, you apply a thin layer on the face & neck and leave it for about 10-15 minutes. I leave it for 15 minutes, then rinse it off with warm water.
Being a clay mask it will dry out your skin. That's easily solved with a moisturizer. For a clay mask I expected it to dry my skin out more harshly than it did. Compared to other clay masks I've used in the past this was minimally drying. It left my face feeling incredibly smooth and has in the most subtle way minimized some of the texture on my skin. Other than that I haven't seen outstanding results but for the price it's great to pick up if you need a pamper night.

What's your favorite mask?
