you think i'm pretty without any makeup on.

When it comes to makeup, I am like a kid in a candy store. It doesn't matter where I am - drugstore, Sephora, MAC - suddenly, my impulse control vanishes. I love trying out new makeup products, colours, brands....I just can't get enough! I'm sure there are quite a few people out there who relate to this problem! I recently added a few new things to my makeup collection.

Latest Additions:
 - Herbal Essences Tousle Me Softly Styling Creme
- L'Oreal Paris Magic Smooth Souffle Foundation in Creamy Natural 
- Milani Easy Brow in Natural 
- Rimmel Cream Shadow in Wicked Sweet
- Milani Crystal Eyez Sparkling Eye Shadow in Glamorously Glittering
- Revlon Lipstick in Gentlemen Prefer Pink
- Joe Fresh Lipstick in Brick
- Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Smitten


Left to Right: 
Revlon Balm Stain (Smitten), Joe Lipstick (Brick), Revlon Lipstick (Gentlemen Prefer Pink), Milani Crystal Eyez (Glamorously Glistening), Rimmel Cream Shadow (Wicked Sweet), L'Oreal Paris Souffle Foundation (Creamy Natural). 

Out of these new purchases, the standouts for me have to be Revlon's Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain and Joe Fresh's Matte Lipstick. I have been impatiently waiting for Revlon's Balm Stain to hit drugstores in Canada and it finally has! Well worth the wait! The texture is smooth and creamy, and adds rich colour that lasts! It is a fantastic product! As for the Joe Fresh Matte Lipstick in Brick, I simply adore the colour! This brownish red shade is dramatic and perfect for creating a fall makeup look!

  29. Well I love make up but I dunno if anything can compare to candy =P
    Anyway I totally lose it too when it comes to make up ^^

  30. i am happy with true-blue red lip stains and nail polishes..... and some shimmer for my eyes. guess i am boring!

    i will admit, i used to do some crazy cleopatra meets bladerunner eye make up in college, which, ironically, january jones rocked at the emmy's.... guess i am just a trend setter.

  31. nice purchases! those shades of pink look nice!

  32. the colors looks really nice and attractive!! wanna try some

  33. I like that shiny browning color. So different. Plus I melt when I see glittering color:-) I want that brown shade!

  37. i just bought a dark red nars color for lipstick, so excited to try it out!

  38. I really like your blog dear!
    Keep up with the good work! :)


  39. read my mind!
    I used to not really be in to the sense that I always have my go to products and don't usually go out of the box.
    But I definitely had been drawn to the bittin lip stain from commercials...AND have been looking for a matte lipstick! I wish there was a way to see how these looked on the lips at the drugstore..but will have to take your word for it :)
