Lipstick Spotlight - L'Oreal

Hey Everyone!

 So I have had a love over some of the colours from L'Oreal's lipstick lines but have never been able to convince myself to buy one, well today that day has come! I was in the US picking up some packages and I decided to stop by Walgreen's seeing as we don't have one in the Vancouver area and they were having a sale buy one get one 50% off so how could I not pick some up.

I got two different formula's the Colour Richie and Infallible and so far I am find that the Infallible is very smooth and has a slight sheen to it. Different from the Colour Richie because it seems to be more dry when I applied them both on my lips and on my arms for the swatches.

Here are the Colours and pictures!

121 Perennial Pink:

138 Forever Fuchsia:

145 Fearless Fuchsia:

479 Coral Seduction:

And the swatches!

121, 145, 138, 479

350 British Red (Top) and 410 Volcanic (Bottom)

So overall I do like these lipsticks there's nothing amazing about them and if the colours I thought I'd love (if you have seen the ad for L'Oreal Colour Richie 410 Volcanic, it looks like she is wearing the most amazing orange colour) didn't turn out to be as amazing as I thought they would. Will I use these? Of course, they are easy to apply and photograph very well but I was left wanting more! More colour that is!

April 2012 Topbox

Hey Everyone!

 My April Topbox got here (late but not because of Topbox, Canada Post messed up) and it as always has some amazing smaples and I wanted to sure it with you all! Inside my Topbox was:

1. Benefit the POREfessional
 I haven't used this product but hear amazing things from people who have. It is suppose to minimize the look of pores and fine lines and give you smoother then smooth skin (their claim). It's oil free and it says it works on all skin tones so I'm excitied to try this!

Full Size is worth $34 and we got $11.63 worth of product
Score: No Score cause I haven't used it yet!

2. Principessa Beauty Dry Shampoo for Darker Shades
  This is a Vancouver based company so thumbs up for that (for anyone who doesn't know I live in the greater Vancouver area). It comes in Light or Dark which is nice and different then most of these types of products. The BIG thing for me about this product was that it's TALC FREE! When I went to their website it showed that the size we got sells for $12.00 but when I did the math the samle size we got was only $6.00 worth of product so it's really double that!!

Full Size is worth $24 for 125g or $12 for 30g  (online price) and so we got a full (small not the large) sized product.
Score: 4/5

I love that it's based on your hair color and that it isn't white! I hate having to shake the white stuff out of my hair. I'm going to use this over the next few weeks and then do a full review on it!

3. MISA Nail Polish in Pretty in Pink
 This color is amazing! Topbox could not have picked a better shade of polish for me, it is the most beautiful pink with pink reflects in it. I am in LOVE!

Full Size is worth $8.99 and we got a full sized product.
Score: 4/5

The color is just perfect and it covers very nicley. I did two coats and the color looked very bright. Plus it came with a 20% off coupon.

You can purchase MISA at:

4. Bella Pella Tropical Flowers Body Lotion
 I honestly liked this lotion a lot but I would change one thing about it. It went on very nice and rubbed into my skin evenly and absorabed quickley but the smell was far to strong. I have very sensetive skin and had no problems with it casuing any irration which is fantastic but again the smell lasts a long time and it's very strong!

Full size is worth $15.95 and we got $2.70 worth of product.
Score: 3.5/5

Even though there are many things I liked about this lotion I can't get over how long lasting and strong smelling it is.

Well that's everything!

Final Thoughts:
In total we got $35.32 in product for only $10.00. I still think Topbox is a great value and a great service for anyone wanting to try new products, build on their current ones or maybe try a new brand you might never have heard of. Two Topboxes down and still LOVING it!

Score for April 2012 Topbox: 4/5

You can also get on the wait list for a Topbox by going to their website:

Have an awesome day!

March Favs!

Hey Everyone!

 The weekend is here and with how busy I've been I'm sure looking forward to it, maybe we will even get some sunshine! For this month my favorites are all over the place and theres a little bit of everything. I have been loving the bright color lip and/or cheeks this month and these are hands down my favorites for that look. If you like these products or have other favorites let me know, I'd love to try them out!

Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter:

 These are the most AMAZING lip products of all time! I know right, huge hype, but so true. These are so pigmented, really nourshing, and go on so easy! I have 7 of these now and at one point I had purschaed 13 of them at one point. I will warn you some of these don't seem to be formulated the same way. A few of the others I owned and then returned went on chuncky and/or didn't have a ton of pigment to them so defentality try these before you buy them!

Tutti Frutti and Sweet Tart

Urban Decay Naked Palette 2

 This needs no information because everyone has heard of it. Feel free to check out the pictures anyway!

I've been using these as my two fav bases for my eyes:

CARGO Devon Eyeshadow and MAC Paint Pot in Bare Study

Inglot Lip Glosses are something I've been raving about for a while. These are so pigmented but not super sticky. They have a great smell and taste, not that I'm saying you should eat them!

I've been loving the Wet n Wild eye palette in Blue Had Me At Hello, this is my favoruite shade:

Feel free to check out my video for more favs!!

Have an awesome week!
