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.

New Years’ Shopping Guide

Have you left everything to the last minute again? NYE is just around the corner and maybe you haven’t even started shopping for your night out in the city. Stress no more, this shopping guide is your one stop check list for everything you’ll need!!

1) The Outfit 

Deciding what to wear for New Years can be tricky, but it shouldn’t be. Figure out what you’ll be doing and this will be easier. If you’re going to a club or party, keep in mind that you should take advantage of the occasion and dress up a little.

dresses

These two dresses are great examples of what you could wear. The one on the left has amazing gold lace detailing and won’t need much work to get you ready for your night out. The one on the right is an all black sequin dress.. and you can’t go wrong with sequins on New Year’s. The only thing I would change about the black look is the tights, I’d pick a sheer black rather than the jet black the model is wearing. Both these dresses are from Le Chateau and can be bought on their website or in stores.

2) The Clutch

Let’s face it, NYE can get sloppy sometimes and we tend to get a little forgetful as the night goes on. Having a perfect clutch that will hold all your precious belongings is essential. If you’re wearing a solid colour from head to toe, pick out a clutch with some glitter, it will definitely spice up your look. The most important thing to remember when shopping for a clutch for New Year’s is to pick one out that has a crossover chain, so you don’t leave it sitting on a table somewhere. The one below is from Aldo, which has some amazing clutches in stores now!

3) The Lipstick

This one is easy, pick a great lipstick to throw in your clutch. Go for that bold red you’re usually afraid of wearing or that dark purple you wouldn’t dare to wear to work. It’s NYE and no one will be able to judge your choice in colour!

4) The Shoes

Maybe the most important of them all… what to wear on your feet! NYE is a LONG night, but if you’re like me, heels are the only answer. I’ve never been a fan of carrying a pair of flats in my purse and changing into them half way through the night either. Pick a comfortable heel from the start. If you’re living in a city that is covered in snow right now, it might work to your advantage. Try finding a heeled bootie that usually has a thicker (more comfortable) heel! But if you have a pair of heels you’re dying to wear that you bought 3 months ago and haven’t had to chance to wear yet, then check out my older post, Easy Steps to Painless Heels.
