My Favourite Red Lipsticks for Christmas 💄

Who doesn’t love a red lip?

Red lipstick looks good on every shade of skin and tone. Finding the perfect red lipstick can be as good as finding chocolate in your stocking! :p

And with the list going on of all the amazing drugstore brand lipsticks, you can find the perfect one without sacrificing your wallet this Christmas.

The swatches match the photos from right to left 😘💋

Starting off with the Revlon Colour Stay Moisture Stain: I have purchased 3 of these over all, and have used all of them religiously. Upon first application the texture is light and airy, but glossy and full of pigment. For someone who is strictly a matte lip kinda gal, this really says something. This is a more expensive drugstore item but worth it for the double feature of a lipstick and a lip stain. Here I have the shades Miami Fever and Shanghai Sizzle. Next sticking with the theme of glossy red lips I love the NYX Xtreme Shine Lip Cream in the shade Absolute Red. This is a high gloss, high pigment lipstick for that perfect Marilyn Monroe pout. My pointer, invent in a good lip liner to avoid and bleeding lines. 💋

I have 2 NYX Matte Lipsticks that are ride or die in my makeup bag Indie Flick and Merlot. Indie Flick is and orange red and is vibrant and bright for the holidays, where Merlot has shades of purple in it, perfect for sultry winter evenings. Both are True Matte Lipsticks, semi dry down, without drying out your lips.

Rimmel Kate Moss in Shade 10: This lipstick was highly influenced by my favourite Youtuber/blogger Zoella, who swears by this lipstick and so do I. This particular shade is the most classic red in my mind and when used with a lipliner and brush, you can create the most precise red lip, for a low price.

Last but not least is the highest priced lip to from Ciate London in the shade Diva. This is a mousse lipstick and half drys down on the lips. I’ve spoken about this before, and while it’s not a true Matte, the texture it creates is worth the few smudges here and there. Plus I have to shoutout to the applicator for being a perfect doe-foot applicator for a red lip on the go!

I hope everyone had been enjoying their lead up to the holidays! Happy (almost) Holidays everyone!

Lush 12 Days of Christmas unboxing 🎁

Hello everyone! And Happy December! 🎄 I can’t quite wrap my head around it yet, but I can feel the countdown is on! December is my favourite month (not just because of my birthday hehe) but because of all the festivities and family getting together ❤️

I was dancing with excitement when I got my Lush 12 Days of Christmas in the mail. Now I felt a tad silly because I had convinced myself that this product was an advant calendar, which it is not. It is in fact a gift box that happens to be filled with 12 fabulous Lush goodies of all varieties. I wasn’t disappointed at all, if fact I was a bit excited that I got to smell EVERYTHING and get a first impression all at once.

So without further ado this is the lovely Lush 12 Days of Christmas Gift Box

Lush does such an amazing job with their packaging, it’s almost impossible to ever recycle any of it! They do state that this is a reusable hat box, so I will definitely be reusing it.

What’s inside?

I was so pleasantly surprised to see that the Lush pre packaging had a little makeover. Any soft items is are sealed in recyclable plastic, which stopped any wear or tear on them, which was one of my only pet peeves with ordering online.

Everything smells amazing in this box, and it’s truly a wonderful gift for anyone (including yourself 😜) It’s filled will all the classic Lush treats that we all know and love, as well as some new ones that will steal your heart!

For a full list of names and ingredients you can find them HERE 🎅

I have to say my 3 favourites so far from the box are: Golden Pear Soap , Santa’s Christmas shower cream, and Shoot for the Stars bah bomb.

Have a wonderful day! Thanks for stopping by! 😊

Thanksgiving Weekend

Over here in Canada we just had our thanksgiving weekend!
Even if I am not quite in the fall spirit, thanksgiving is always the holiday that brings me right to it.
With all the cuddly fall necessities being launched I thought it would be necessary to grab a few of my favorites!

I hit up Bath and Body Works to grab some fabulous candles. All of them smell amazing!
With the help of some of my favorite YouTubers I managed to track down my favorite smells quick as a bunny.

The first one I already had in mind was ‘Sweater Weather’, which didn’t fail to ell amazing! Somehow it smells like sweet apples in fresh air, and a hint of men’s cologne. That is just what it smells like to me personally and I love it!

The second I grabbed is called Autumn, which is quite self explanatory as to why I went right for it. It’s a light fresh scent with a hint of vanilla. Simple as that and so wonderful!

The last one is called ‘Marshmallow Fireside’. Its smells exactly the way it sounds. Deliciously festive! This is one I picked up for my boyfriend since his love of candles is just as strong as mine.

The big treat I got myself was this single wick, to die for, scented candle. It is called ‘Leaves’, and it is essentially the entire fall season beautifully wrapped up in one candle.

  I hope everyone who celebrated Thanksgiving this weekend had an amazing time. What is your favorite thing about the holiday if you celebrate it? And to others who celebrate in November, tell me what you look forward to most about Thanksgiving!
Ciao!
