This 6 treatment box retails for $38.00 and is the most requested facial upgrade in the bliss spas and I can feel and see why.

The brightening, skin-renewing formula is packed with powerful antioxidants and nourishing, detoxifying seaweed.So if you’re looking for a bright and healthy complexion, ‘mask’ and you shallreceive.

Taking a BITE out of Barolo. #28Kisses

Bite Beauty is an all-natural lip care company operating out of downtown Toronto. Our mission is to create lipstick that is high performance and healthy enough to eat for women everywhere.
Tell me if you've heard this one: I had a gift card to Sephora burning a hole in my pocket.... ;) I am always looking for something new to try, especially lipsticks. It is really the only makeup item that I am crazy about.
What intrigued me the most about BITE Beauty: This lip color delivers super antioxidant resveratrol, which fights free radicals with potent long-term antiaging benefits. Each lipstick contains the amount of resveratrol found in five glasses of red wine.

Many moons ago I had a lipstick by Versace in the most amazing shade of plum. Unfortunately the cosmetic line was discontinued shortly after Gianni Versace death and I have been on the hunt for a dupe ever since.Meet Barolo, my new perfect shade of plum.

Celebrating my Birthday with Deborah Lippmann!

Did you see my Instagrampost? This shade from Deborah Lippmann, Candy Shop, matches my brand new Kate Spade bag! A little Birthday gift to myself!

Sweet like YSL Honey. #28Kisses

I had no idea how coveted this lipstick was until I posted a swatch on Beautylish. Rouge Volupté #4 is known as Honey and is the ultimate nude lipstick. Super creamy, very pigmented and very glossy, the Rouge Volupté collection is created with Mango oil which gives the lipsticks a sweet scent and slick feel.

The colour payoff is incredible. It only takes one swipe per lip for awesome coverage and *truth be told* this is my go-to base shade for my lip glosses. Especially YSL Golden Gloss in #2. The shade is too much like my skin tone and I look unbelieveably washed out when I wear this alone, so I don't.

This lipstick is very moisturizing and very lightweight. The creamy finish is more oily than buttery feeling, to me. And I find it does not last as long as it claims but it does not feather off of my lips nor does it oxidize to a different shade: it is tube true throughout it's entire wear. I can honestly say that my lips feel softer after wearing this formula which is why I will…

Makeup For Ever's Folk Hero #28Kisses

Perfectly described as a red coral with a slight shimmer, Folk is a moisturizing formula from Makeup For Ever'sRouge Artist Natural collection. It is also my first Makeup For Ever lipstick purchase.

Thislightweight lipstick has a very comfortable application, it glides on smoothly and finishes creamy. Folk stayed colour true and did not flake or feather off of my mouth yet it did not wear as long as some of my other lipsticks,I needed to reapply Folkearlier and more often. Plus, I noticed that it develops this 'powdery' feeling once it starts to wear off. Not that there is anything wrong with that, just a different feeling

It features moderate coverage and the shimmer is just a touch of something special, it does not look like glitter nor is it a frosty finish, just a simple dimensional shine.

In Niagara Giving #28Kisses with NARS

This is creamy luxe. A buttery feeling that makes me want to rub my lips together, as if I am rubbing a moisturizer deep into my skin. I purchased Niagara by NARS last year, about this same time and this is the first time that it has been used. Spring always make me think of pinks and oranges and with the announcement yesterday that Punxsutawney Phil is welcoming Spring early, I thought I would offer some Spring time inspiration!

I'm pretty sure that this is the first NARS lipstick that I have purchased. And what a way to start! The shade looks to be more matte in the tube but has a nice shine once on my lips. It glides on smoothly and comfortably. There is no odor or taste and Niagara stays colour-true through its wear. It did not feather or drift off of my lips and suffered minimal transfer - I had to reapply no more or less than other lipsticks.
