Favorite Lip Glosses

Fall and winter brought us the liquid lipstick trend. A matte lip that would dry down and last all day. Now that it’s summer, I don’t want anything to feel dry on my skin. I have been loving feeling dewy, glowy and fresh. I have been wearing lipgloss a lot more and here are some of my favorites that you have to check out. What I love most about all of these lip glosses is that they are super pigmented and don’t feel thick and goopy on your lips.

Bareminerals Gen Nude Buttercream Lip Gloss

These glosses are new from Bareminerals and let me tell you, they are incredible. They retail for $18 which may seem expensive for a lipgloss but they are so creamy and pigmented. They feel very lightweight on your lips and the applicator makes it very easy to get full coverage.

Colourpop Ultra Glossy Lip

If you are on a budget or just want to save some money and still get an amazing product, look no further than Colourpop. Their Ultra Glossy Lips are pigmented, lightweight and what I love most is their color range. They even have metallic lip glosses which are so cool. I wore one to work the other day, it’s my favorite.

Nyx Butter Gloss

I love how Nyx cosmetics is affordable and such good quality. There glosses are no exception. My favorite color is a beautiful nude called Tiramisu.

Buxom Full-On Lip Cream

Buxom is known for their lip glosses. My favorite is the shade White Russian which acts as a perfect lip topper over a lipstick to lighten the color and add a beautiful shine.

What are your favorite lip glosses?

February 2017 Beauty Favorites

To be honest, thank god February is over. I am not a winter person and the closer we get to spring, the happier I get. However, there were a lot of beauty products I tried and loved in the month of February.


Facial mists have been popular in the beauty world lately. They help to add moisture to your face before or after your makeup. The rose water mists are most popular but since I am not a fan of rose scent, I decided to try the Kiehl’s Cactus Flower & Tibetan Ginseng Hydrating Mist. I love the fresh scent and it’s not too overpowering. I spray it on my freshly washed face before my makeup.


Although highlighting is nothing new to me, I tend to do a bold highlight on an everyday basis. A lot of beauty bloggers that I follow started getting into a more subtle, “glow from within” highlight and after looking through my countless numbers of highlighters, I realized I didn’t really have any subtle highlighters. I heard people raving about the Essence Pure Nude Highlighter so of course I had to try it. It gives you a beautiful, natural glow. I like to put this on my cheek bones as well as the center of my forehead and down the bridge of my nose.


I love the Colourpop Pressed Eyeshadows. They are so creamy, pigmented and affordable. I’ve already purchased a bunch and I used them pretty much every day in February.


Urban Decay recently re released their All Nighter Long-Lasting Makeup Setting Spray along with other sprays in the range. I had tried the original All-Nighter spray and didn’t like it. When they came out with it again, I decided to try it again because I had heard they reformulated it a bit. I have to say, it is so much better and I use it everyday now. I really do notice that my makeup stays on longer.

Let me know what products you loved in February!
