Live Clean Sheer Light Skin Perfecting Dry Body Oil

I was introduced to dry body oils a few years ago, and I've been absolutely hooked on them ever since! I love how hydrating oils are, and dry oils have the benefit of leaving your skin feeling silky but not greasy. Live Clean's Sheer Light Skin Perfecting Dry Body Oil* ($9.99 CAD) is new to the skincare market, and I think that it's definitely worth checking out!

Live Clean Sheer Light Skin Perfecting Dry Body Oil

  • Advanced skin perfecting formula features the Natura8 Complex™ blend of Certified Organic oils including Safflower Oil, Argan Oil, Avocado Oil, Sesame Seed Oil, Jojoba Oil and Coconut Oil

Live Clean Sheer Light Skin Perfecting Dry Body Oil

Live Clean's Sheer Light Skin Perfecting Dry Body Oil comes packaged in a tall clear plastic bottle with a pump dispenser. I personally would have preferred a spray pump applicator, since I find that a bit easier to use, and it can be less messy. However, the pump still gets the job done! This blend of Certified Organic oils that includes Safflower Oil, Argan Oil, Jojoba Oil and Coconut Oil, Avocado Oil and Sesame Oil deeply hydrates your skin in a natural yet highly effective manner. The oil really does leave my skin feeling soft, smooth, and silky, without feeling greasy, oily, or sticky.

mark. Crazy For Cranberry Body Scrub

mark.'s Crazy For Cranberry Body Scrub* ($12) is a product that you'll definitely want to add to your shower shelves for the upcoming Fall season! I'm not normally a huge cranberry lover (either the taste or scent), but this scrub from mark. has completely won me over!

mark. Crazy For Cranberry Body Scrub

This body scrub comes packaged in a fun purple plastic tube. This cranberry scent also combines notes of creamy vanilla bean and fruity rose, which round out the traditionally sour cranberry notes. This formula suds up in the shower, and walnut shells work as a physical exfoliant to slough away dry skin. This scrub is fairly intense, so I only feel the need to use it 1-2x per week, all over my body.

Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Cream

I'm leaving on my honeymoon to Barcelona, Spain this afternoon, and I needed something to keep my skin from freaking out on the plane. My skin has been doing really well lately, and I don't want a plane ride to wreak havoc on my skin like it usually does. I've turned to Clinique's Dramatically Different Moisturizing Cream* in the travel friendly 30 mL tub to help lock in the moisture while I'm travelling!

Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Cream

"Moisture-rich cream ups the hydration intensity of our yellow genius. Dermatologist-developed formula combines all-day protection with skin-strengthening ingredients to soothe even the driest skins. Makes skin more resilient. Use it daily to keep skin younger, longer." - Clinique

Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Cream

I've been using Clinique's skin care ranges for years and years, so this moisturizer is no stranger to me. I think that it's so important to stick to what your skin already knows when you're travelling, since you don't want to stress your skin out by introducing it to new products. This yellow cream is 100% fragrance free and has been allergy tested. This formula is fairly thick and very creamy, and is suited towards those with very dry to dry combination skin types. I love using this cream at night to recharge my skin, especially after a long day in the sun! This formula absorbs quickly, so you don't have to worry about waiting around before you can lay your head down on your pillow.

Dior Fall 2015 Rouge Dior Lipsticks

Autumn is quickly approaching (RIP Summer), and Dior has you covered with their new Fall 2015 Rouge Dior Lipsticks*! There are three new limited edition shades available this upcoming season, and I have a feeling that you'll definitely want to check them out!

Dior Fall 2015 Rouge Dior Lipsticks

"Rouge Dior adds a couture touch to your style signature. Like a Dior bag, the iconic Dior red is the mark of ultimate chic. It dresses the lips in timelessly elegant color with a sensual lipcare texture that leaves a radiant satiny finish." - Dior

Dior Fall 2015 Rouge Dior Lipsticks

Dior Fall 2015 Rouge Dior Lipsticks

The new Fall 2015 Rouge Dior Lipsticks come packaged in beautiful sleek black and silver tubes, with the initials CD on the lids. The lipstick bullets are engraved with the word Dior, which is just such a nice touch! These Rouge Dior Lipsticks have a very heavy floral scent, that might remind you of something that you would find in your grandma's purse. If you're scent-sensitive, then you might want to stay away from these lippies. Otherwise, this formula is really quite impressive! I get about 6-7 hours out of this formula before I need to reapply, they even last throughout eating and drinking!

Dior Fall 2015 Rouge Dior Lipstick in Nouvelle Femme

Nouvelle Femme is a beautiful light baby pink that gives off a nice opaque colour in a single swipe. There are slight coral undertones, which isn't something you normally find in a Fall lipstick!

Dior Fall 2015 Rouge Dior Lipstick in Unique

Unique is the traditional vampy Fall lipstick in this lineup. This deep berry is really pretty, and will definitely make a statement! The pigmentation is superb, and I didn't have any issues with feathering, fading, or transferring on to my teeth. 

Dior Fall 2015 Rouge Dior Lipstick in Continental

Continental is a beautiful light berry with pink undertones. I always love berry lippies like this one, so it's no surprise that this is my favourite of the new Fall 2015 shades! 

Dior Fall 2015 Rouge Dior Lipstick Swatches

Are you ready to start embracing Fall beauty trends? I'm not ready to say goodbye to Summer yet, but these beautiful Fall colours are making the transition a bit easier!

Mary Kay City Modern Collection Eye Color Palettes

My mailbox has been flooding with Fall releases lately, it's hard to believe that Summer is coming to an end soon! Today I have the two new City Modern Collection Eye Color Palettes* from Mary Kay to share with you. I've been a huge fan of this shadow formula from previous collections, and luckily these two newbies are no exception!

Mary Kay City Modern Collection Eye Color Palettes

"The NEW limited-edition Mary Kay Eye Color Palette takes its design cue from the sleek, soaring architectural lines of magnificent modern city skyscrapers. Each palette features this season’s must-have metallic and matte neutrals. Get intense colour payoff in one sweep for a smudge-proof finish that’s effortlessly chic. The eye colour palette is part of the limited-edition† Mary Kay City Modern Collection – fall’s must-have makeup that expresses the elegant and sophisticated mood of the season." - Mary Kay

Mary Kay City Modern Collection Eye Color Palettes

These palettes are $26 CAD each, and they are sold without packaging. This would be perfect to pop into a Z Palette, but Mary Kay also sells empty compacts for $20 each. If you were to buy an empty compact for each palette, it would make them pretty pricey at $46 each.

Mary Kay City Sophisticate Eye Color Palette Swatches

City Sophisticate is my favourite of the two palettes. This palette includes a beautiful shimmery taupe, a cool toned pink, a glittery gold, and a beautiful light berry/plum with a satin finish. These four shadows work wonderfully together, and you can easily use this palette for a day or night look.

Mary Kay Metro Modern Eye Color Palette Swatches

Metro Modern is more of a smokey eye/evening look palette. The dark metallic brown is absolutely a dream to work with - the pigmentation is superb! The shimmering silver shadow is somewhat sheer, but still very creamy. The deep shimmery navy works perfectly to deepen up the crease. And finally we have the matte grey with brown undertones. This shadow applies a bit patchy, and is the only let down from either palette. 

Mary Kay's City Modern Collection is available now online or through your local Mary Kay Consultant. Will you be ordering either of these new palettes?
