Make Up For Ever Lipstick X Sephora

Let me introduce to you the BEST lipstick collection available for all you beauty lovers. As you may or may not know, my make-up skills are extremely limited and while I try to get into it, I always find myself shopping shoes and clothes before stepping foot into Sephora.

With that being said, I still signed up for their rewards program which automatically made me eligible to receive a yearly birthday gift.  The gift this year included a mini lipstick from Make Up For Ever’s Rouge Artist Natural line – and it is to die for!

Not only was it a popular natural colour, thanks to Kylie Jenner, but it made it easy to wear everyday. I began using the mini sample and couldn’t resist it anymore. I walked into Sephora and picked up the full size.

A) It’s extremely lightweight and creamy, making it feel like a lipgloss versus a lipstick.

B) It has a great colour range from natural nudes, pinks, browns, plums, and even a few reds.

C) The shine it leaves is unbelievable. Your lips look flawless without the need of lipliner or a clear gloss finish.

 

 

The shade specifically shown above is N9 – here’s a look of it on me…

As you can see, a perfect finish, making my lips look extra plump, shiny and smooth! For anyone looking for a new lipstick definitely give this collection a try here. And if you’re a matte lover they have a collection called Rouge Artist Intense – featuring almost the same colour scheme.

Great fashion is derived from a fascinating life. A memorable design is what a designer strives for and the creative mind behind the House of Poplyn is just that.

Born in India, a country known for its colourful background and muti-cultural characteristics, Tanushree Pande, the designer and founder of the fashion label, Poplyn, was easily consumed by the fashion world and was inspired by the culture that surrounded her. With the heritage and charm of India instilled in her, Pande moved to South Africa, where she discovered more opportunities and absorbed the bold and beautiful influences.

Finally Pande gathered all that she had seen and settled in Toronto, Canada – a place booming with thirst for fashion and emerging designers. It was the perfect place for the House of Poplyn to become a reality.

Not only is Pande the mind and force behind the brand but she is also an avid illustrator, stylist and fashion writer.

House of Poplyn has seen great success over the years. The brand launched in August 2013 with a 10-piece women’s clothing line. In April 2014, Pande was chosen as one of the designers to participate at Arts & Fashion Week. The S/S 2014 collection called “RAILROAD” inspired by TTC (Toronto Transit Commission), was featured at the show, where the runway was transformed into a TTC subway with great props and music. This collection will be featured throughout this article.

Must-Have Winter Footwear

New season, new trends. Don’t get overwhelmed, just follow the tips in this article to find out what essential footwear you need for your winter collection.

1) Laced Combat Boots

Whether you picked up a fabulous pair last season or you want to treat yourself to newer pair, combat boots are a must for the winter season. They make the perfect shoe for a casual look and can easily be dressed up. While you can purchase brown or beige combat boots, I’d stick to the basic black, since you’ll get the most of them for the whole season. As for length, the under-the-knee combat boots went out of style last season, so stick to the ankle length we’re all used to.

2) Heeled Booties

This is an obvious one. The style is totally up to you; you can choose to wear a nubuck style or a classic round toe suede buckle up – but booties are a must for the season because they can be used to easily dress a look up without needed to throw on bulky jewellery. It’s an easy fix that will make a lasting impression.
