Fall Makeup Look - Purple Vampy Lips.

Hey all! Fall is finally here and that means the dark lip colours are finally out and ready to be worn. I am absolutely in love with the way dark lips look with winged eyeliner. I wore this look today and wanted to share it with you guys. Fall is definitely my favourite season of the year as it slowly transitions summer into cooler sweater weather and... It's the season of Halloween (my favourite holiday).

I actually tried out the Prestige Cream D'escargot B.B cream from It's Skin. I'm not a huge fan of B.B creams and as a mini review of this product - I hated it. It barely oxidized and even with applying powder to set it, I found it's lasting power horrible. I drank a cup of water and it took my B.B cream off and left me with a weird patch which I had to fix up. Throughout the day my nose and chin basically had no product on it. I think the finish of the product was pretty nice and the coverage made your skin quite flawless. The one thing I dislike about B.B creams is that they had one shade that is supposed to somehow oxidize into your skin colour. I feel like it never does that for me which is why I stick with foundations.

What I'm wearing on my face:
It's Skin - Prestige Cream D'escargot B.B cream
NARS Translucent Powder
Benefit Hoola Bronzer
Too Faced Love Flush - How Deep Is Your Love

Eyes & Brows:
Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz
Etude House Color My Brows
Urban Decay Naked Palette
Stila Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner
Marc Jacobs Beauty Highliner Gel Eye Crayon

Velour Lashes - Whispie Business
Too Faced Better than Sex Mascara

Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick - Venom

I tried to go simpler on the face to really pop my dark lips.

Current Beauty Favourites

It's halfway through April so posting a March favourite's seems too late and so I thought I would share with you guys my current beauty favourites! I have been trying to branch out to different products rather than sticking to my everyday items. I have found some AMAZING products throughout the months!

Lush Tea Tree Water
This is an amazing toner for your skin. It is said to be meant for oily acne prone skin but I have dry skin and it works fine for me. I like the fact that it has tea tree in it, which is amazing for pimples and such. I feel like whilst using this I have found that I get less breakouts! This is actually my second bottle of this and I love it!

Make Up Forever HD Foundation in N120
I used to use this foundation maybe two or three years ago. To be honest, this was my first ever liquid foundation I had ever used! I somehow forgot about this and moved on to other foundations. Recently I bought this again and it made me really wonder why I ever stopped using it! It is the perfect amount of coverage and it is buildable. I find that the perfect way to apply this foundation is with a Beauty Blender. I just run my beauty blender under some water it wet it and apply this all over my face. The combination helps reduce those dry patches and has a lovely finish after setting it with a powder.

Too Faced Soul Mates Blushing Bronzer - Carrie & Big
I told myself that I didn't need this but... I caved in and bought it BUT I am so glad I did! I still have yet to use the bronzer part of the product but this blush is stunning! I absolutely am blown away by this gorgeous peachy blush! It is quite hard to get just the blush out of this but the way it looks on your cheeks is too beautiful. And I have to say Carrie and Big are one of my favourite couples from TV.

MAC Mineralize Skinfinish - Soft & Gentle
I have heard from EVERYONE about how amazing this highlighter is and blah blah blah. And to be honest, I didn't understand why everyone was raving about this product but I must say it does give you a perfect glow. I am completely suckered into this product and my makeup feels incomplete without this now. For those of you who were thinking of getting this - GET IT! I love it! You do have to be careful and make sure you use a fan brush and apply with a light hand because it can look too much on your face.

BITE Agave Lip Mask
This is a lip balm that makes your lips super moisturized. I suffer from dry and flaky lips and lets be honest, it's really not cute. I was not happy when I first tried this because it is an extremely thick consistency but once you smooth it out on your lips, it doesn't feel sticky. Saved my lips!

Too Faced Melted Lipstick in Melted Strawberry
This colour is bright and super red. Scary? I know. I was afraid of using this colour because I am not really a bold lips kind of girl but I fell in love. This entire line is amazing! I wore this out one night to go out clubbing with my friends and this stayed on ALL NIGHT. I have a tendency to bite my lip and lick my lips throughout the night which is why lip colours never stay on my lips. I was shocked at how my lips looked by the end of the night!

YSL Rouge Volupte Shine in 14
Ugh, but look at that packaging! So gorgeous! This is my first ever YSL lipstick and I love it! It does make my lips slightly dry but then again most products do. I love this coral colour on my lips. The perfect colour for spring! The product is quite sheer but the colour definitely comes off on your lips. It has a glossy finish with a tinge of shimmer. It's stunning!

These are just the swatches of the two lipsticks.

Spring Outfit Ideas?

I have never done a fashion post before on my blog and I've been really wanting to so here it is! These are just two outfit ideas for upcoming spring weather! Sadly here on the east coast it is still really really cold... Spring, where are you?

Hat, Top & Dress -  Urban Outfitters
Necklace - I don't remember sorry!

I didn't realize both of my outfits are mostly Urban Outfitters! Oops :/. 
If you want more outfit posts please let me know! 

Revlon Colorstay Moisture Stain

I have recently discovered these in my local drugstore and I am absolutely in love with them! They are like liquid lipsticks in consistency and they last a good amount of time on my lips. They are very affordable and moisturizing!

I have difficulty with lipsticks because I feel like most of them dry out my lips. These are perfect for on the go! They apply sort of sheer on your lips when you apply just one coat but they are very buildable. I definitely recommend these for everybody!

I picked up four colours:
035 Miami Fever
020 Rio Rush
001 India Intrigue
005 Parian Passion

I have to say that my favourite is 035 Miami Fever! Love this colour for the upcoming spring season.

Here are the colours on my lips:

Red Farm (Foodie post)

I know I've only done posts on makeup here but what you have to know about me is that I'm a huge foodie. I love to go eat and NYC has so much food to offer. I want to start doing posts on more than makeup and venture out into lifestyle posts and more.

I went to Red Farm which is a dimsum place located on 529 Hudson St between 10th St & Charles St in West Village. It's more of a fusion dimsum place with cute decoration. It's kind of pricey but you definitely get the quality food you pay for. They had the best soup dumplings I've ever tasted but beware, it is extremely hard to eat. We had difficulty trying to get the dumpling onto our plates without the soup leak out everywhere! The salad was one of the favourite dishes that day. I think people come to this place for the pacman dumplings which are adorable but too be honest, the taste is not that amazing. It just tastes like an average shrimp dumpling. 

Red Farm :

I'll be back with a beauty blog post in a couple of days!

Makeup Haul

Hey everyone! I've been doing a little bit of makeup shopping here and there for the past few months! I've been trying to find a good foundation that won't break me out. I always feel like trying foundation or new face products is very scary for me as I have sensitive skin that will break out if my skin feels even slightly unhappy with the product. I've been actually really loving the NARS Sheer Glow. I've used it years ago but then somehow drifted away from it and I finally repurchased it and have been absolutely loving it! I've also been on a lip craze (yet again). I feel like you can never have enough lip products. I have also been LOVING the Semi Sweet Chocolate Bar palette from Too Faced. I have been using it every single day since I've bought it and now I know why this product has such a hype!

Sorry I've been so MIA on this blog but I promise I'll be back soon with tons of new blog posts so get ready for that :).

Too Face Semi Sweet Chocolate Bar
NARS Sheer Glow (Ceylan)
Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation (Warm Sand 2.5)
