Beauty Essentials

Over the last few weeks I’ve been sharing my must have beauty products from the London Drugs Beauty Event that I attended. You can see the last two posts HERE & HERE. For years, I’ve always been the girl to only purchase makeup if it was necessary – if it needed to be replenished. These days I’m more willing to try out all new colors and products and have a little fun with it all!

Today I’m sharing with you my new essentials from Revlon and Tweezerman. Revlon is no stranger to the blog as I’ve shown you many of their products before and I’m thrilled to share with you some new items that I’m currently loving! Before the London Drugs Beauty Event I had never heard of Tweezerman…thank gooooossshh that I was introduced because I have a big fan now. They had started out as a company producing beauty tools for your nails and face – such as clippers and tweezers but now they have entered the world of makeup brushes and the verdict is stellar.

Revlon 3

Lips - Colorstay Moisture Stain 045 New York Scene | 015 Barcelona Nights | 035 Miami Fever
Eyeliner – Skinny Liquid Liner Blackout
Mascara – Bold Lacquer 001 Blackest Black

Over the last few posts it’s pretty apparent that I’m into all different types of lip stains. All of their own reasons and applications. These Revlon stains apply so easily and softly and you won’t over do it. The texture is silky when wet but once it dries you will have that baby on for a full 12 hours… it didn’t even rub off onto my drinking glass!

The liquid liner is pretty great - I would say it’s on par with other liquid liners… the tip is an ideal size for application on my eyes.

Tweezerman 1

The Tweezerman brush game has entered the beauty world with full force and they pretty much hit the ground running. My go to brushes were Quo – as the hairs never fall off. It’s been almost a month that I’ve been using the Tweezerman brushes and no hairs have fallen off and the application is wonderful every time I use them. Cleaning them is also a cinch. I’ve been using the pointed concealer brush for my eye shadow application in the creases of my eyes and it works beautifully.

All of these products can be found at your local London Drugs beauty department.

Last week I shared with you my must have beauty products from Lise Watier and Almay and today we’ll take a look at more from Annabelle, NYX & Prestige. Like I had mentioned in last week’s post – I attended the London Drugs Beauty Event alongside other local influencers to learn and test out the new products soon to be rolling out at London Drugs. Here is a week two breakdown of more of my favorite items. Anabelle 1

Annabelle 2

Lip Gloss – Beem
Lip Liner – Buff
Eye Liner – Eyeink black
Mascara – Big Show black | Expandable black
Bronzer – Biggy Zebra Powder

I’ve been using the nude lip liner with all of my light lip colors. It’s a total pain to purchase the appropriate color for every lipstick that I own but I find that a nude will still shape and outline your lips for a clean look, no matter what color you’re wearing.

I’m typically a one mascara at a time kinda girl but lately I’ve been simultaneously using these mascaras to create a full look with the Big Show wand then handling all of the little missed hairs and bottom line with the Expandable wand.

NYX 1

NYX 2

NYX 3

Eyeshadow Combo – DCP03 Stormy SkiesEye Liner – Two Timer Liner TT01 Jet Black
Lip Gloss – BLG14 Madeleine

I tend to not stray too far from the nude and natural colors for my eyes so this NYX set was perfect. The application is a little light so you may find yourself layering but it’s great for shading.

The eye liner is also a hit. I only use liquid on my top lid and a pencil on my bottom – this pen has me covered for both.

Prestige 1

Prestige 2

Eye Shadow – Bronze TIE05 | Copper TIE03
Eye Liner – Ultra Black Semi-Matte TDP01
Lipstick – Lip Crayons TIJ01 Bare It All | TIJ04 Party Shine
Correcting Pen – PMR01

I am new to the Prestige brand and haven’t heard of them before attending the LD Beauty event. They are currently in the process of re-branding their company and what a brand it’s become! I was shown every single liner and shadow they have for the new collection and I was legitimately amazed by the application. These colors are more for a night out when you want to get a little crazy with your look. I’m really into their correcting pen – any little mistake I make with my eye makeup I can just erase it with the pen!

Beauty Essentials

One of the many great parts about being a fashion, beauty and lifestyle blogger is that I’m given the opportunities to be introduced to new products before they hit the shelves. In return, after I’ve tried them – I can tell you about them! This is a great way for you to discover new products or try out a brand you’ve had your eyes on.

Last week myself and many other influencers in Vancouver attended the London Drugs Beauty event as well as an Almay “picnic” beauty class. I felt like a kid in a candy shop! Not only did we get boat loads of beauty products but I was lucky enough to meet brand ambassadors, makeup artists and even CEOs of these companies. Getting one on one tutorials on the products and finding out what will be in stores in the next few months up to the fall was such a treat!

I won’t be sharing everything that I received because frankly I wasn’t a fan of every product I was given. I want to share with you my favorites and if you have any questions about application or reactions please feel free to Facebook, Tweet, Instagram or email me.

Throughout the upcoming week I’ll be sharing all of brands and products I enjoyed, but today we’ll focus on Almay & Lise Watier. All products can be found at your closest London Drugs beauty department.

Almay1

Shadow Combos – 401 Smoky-i For Browns (brown) | 403 Smoky-i For Hazels (grey)
Shadow Singles – 125 Creme Brule | 155 Cashmere
Mascara – 031 Intense i-Color Volumizing Mascara
Liner – 031 – Intense i-Color Defining Liner
Bronzer – Smart Shade Powder
Foundation – Anti-Aging Skintone Matching 200

Almay3

Almay2

The reason I adore the Smart Shade foundation is that you don’t need to know the shade of your skintone to find one that works for you. All you need to know is if your skin is light, medium or dark and the makeup will match to your skins natural tones on it’s own!

900 Apricot
300 Apple A Day
800 Rosy Lipped
950 Truffle Kiss
400 Lilac Love

Almay glosses are my favorite! I tried them for the first time last year and have been hooked ever since. Nothing beats the application and they actually taste good. A bonus.. your hair wont get caught on your lips. All of you girls know what I mean!

Laura Mercier 1
Shadow Combo - 32767 Quatuor Feline
Shadow Stick – 71190 Bronze Glam
Liner – Feline Liner
Brow Liner – 71438 Brun
Lipstick – 41393 Nude

Like the above glosses by Almay, this lipstick by LW is truly a must have. I applied it for the first time a few days ago and the minute it hit my lips I kidd you not, my jaw dropped and I muttered out an “ooOooO!” The application is so fluid (no pun intended) and it has a very interesting texture…almost, powder like? It’s very soft and the coverage is like no other lipstick I’ve had before.
