Be warned: this is a fun and colourful post to look at this cute TONYMOLY Mini Fruit Lip Balm Set:
I received this for Christmas last year and have been enjoying it for the past few months!
Last Friday evening, four Toronto chicks headed over to the trendy Queen Street West downtown to experience the thrill of making our very own lipsticks at none other than the BITE Lip Lab!
I’ve never made my own lip colour before save for the one time I melted some Vaseline with a bit of food colouring when I was around 12 years old. 😆 Good times! The BITE Lip Lab is just a tad more advanced than my at home “lab”! XD
I picked this up in back in May last year in my Japan trip… I’ve been quite slow in trying the items I’ve purchased in Japan. Part of me wants to dig in but a big part of me just want to look at the pretty stuff and keep them in pristine condition! 😛 I mean, just look at how cute this thing is!
But, nothing can remain perfect forever… 😛
This is the last of my catch-up posts for Project Pan. I’ll be back in sync next Monday. 🙂
Today I’m taking a closer look at an item that has made a few appearances on the blog before but never had its own limelight – the Guerlain Rouge G lipstick in 06 Garance:
While I like some higher end makeup brands, I’m by no means into “designer” makeup brands. I don’t own any “signature” lipsticks from the likes of YSL, Chanel, Dior… the Guerlain Rouge G is the most expensive lipstick I own (I also have another shade, #863 Provocative, a limited edition from 2013 in a black tube) and it cost me C$52 back in 2013 for this. They now retail for C$59 for 3.5g of product. 😮
This is a post that was inspired by Polished and Inspired! I had shown 2 lip oils in my last favourites post and she asked of the lip oils that I own, which do I prefer most. That got me thinking – perhaps I should do a comparison post! Thanks for the blog post idea! 😉
I own 3 lip oils which will be featured today, listed in the order in which I acquired them:
• Clarins Instant Light Lip Comfort Oil in Honey
• Sephora Collection Oil Infusion Color & Care in 06 Bubbly Grenadine
• Lancôme Juicy Shaker in Berry in Love
I mentioned in my recent Misc. Makeup Purge post that I have enough MAC empties to Back to MAC. I’ve been saving these since last year and I actually have enough for TWO items! (6 empties = 1 product) 😀 Here’s what will be going back to MAC:
Clockwise from upper left hand corner:
1) Studio Sculpt Defining Powder (review here)
2-3) Cleanse Off Oil (2)
4) Tendertone in Hot ‘n’ Saucy (shown here)
5) Fluidline in Ostentatious
6) Pro Longwear Concealer in NC20 (shown here)
7) In Extreme Dimension Mascara
8) Lipgelée in Moistly
9) Paints in Magrittes
10) Prep+Prime Transparent Finishing Powder (mentioned here)
11) Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in Medium (shown here)
12) Cremeblend Blush in Something Special
In Canada, we have the option of trading for either a lipstick, Lipglass or an eye shadow at stand-alone MAC stores. I dislike MAC’s Lipglasses so I’m not redeeming for that. Since I get to choose two items, why not get one of each of a lipstick and an eye shadow? 😉 Similar to the last time when I redeemed for a MAC lipstick (I ended up with Party Line), I’d like your input on what I should get!
Technically I bought these items in June but it doesn’t contain any makeup so there was no need to include it in my low-buy accountability. I bought these items when I went to MUJI to buy the prizes for the giveaway and of course I can’t help but to pick up a few things for moi as well…
Ok, back to regular programming on the blog for a bit. I’m really backlogged from my May posts. I did a bunch of makeup hauls right before my vacation that I need to catch up on before the end of the month so I can get back into my groove. 😛
Lancôme isn’t a brand that I normally get too excited over, and I’m not sure why. But one fateful Sunday in late May right before my vacation, I went into Shoppers Drug Mart to buy some shaving gel for the SO and stumbled upon a beauty event where there was a live DJ and mocktails being served. They were having a bonus points weekend and there was also a gwp at Lancôme. So I ended up with these:
Yes, yet another palette! What’s happening to me?! This was a completely unplanned beauty purchase. I blame the lychee mocktail they plyed me with. 😉
