Beauty fab finds for 2014
It’s a new year, time to revamp our beauty drawers!
Here’s a look at our must haves for the coming year:
NARS FINAL CUT COLLECTION
The second we saw this collection we had to have it, what a pretty fresh update for the New Year! Always a fan of the illuminators this one didn’t disappoint. Wearing to highlight either under the foundation or pressed over your base, create a beautiful shimmering pinky glow. The satin lip pencils are also a favorite, seen here in four limited shades. These lip colors glide on easily leaving a creamy intense finish. Finally the blush; which true to NARS is very well pigmented, (a little goes a long way) creates a perfect fresh flushed finish.
AURA BY SWAROVSKI
These pendants are adorable! A lip-gloss compact in a necklace, how fun is that! These remind us of the old-school lockets . The packaging is the sweetest, wrapped up like a candy. I love the long chain /rope they hang on making it perfect to dress these down with a pair of jeans and a blazer or they are the perfect touch to a little black dress. What more does a girl need, jewels and lip-gloss!
BURBERRY FRESH GLOW POWDER in NUDE RADIANCE NO.1
The packaging would almost be better than the product if the product wasn’t so fabulous! The attention to detail is incredible throughout the whole collection. I especially enjoy the weight of the compact and Burberry’s signature pattern that carries through from the packaging to being etched into the product. This highlighter is incredibly fine so glides onto the face flawlessly while creating super yet subtle sheen wherever it is applied.
THIERRY MUGLER – ANGEL
A signature fragrance is what every women needs. While perfume is such a personal thing this is definitely one to try. Angel is distinctive, a bold yet sensual womanly scent, that when worn always evokes a comment or two. With undertones or Bergamot, Vanilla, Patchouli and Chocolate it will be the one or it won’t!
PURMINERALS – Hello Bright Eyes Pencil
This is like the magic wand of makeup. A true must have, once you try you will never go back! There are many of these types of eye brightening pencils on the market but what I love about this one is the pink undertone which instantly brightens the eye, while ridding redness . Try lining the inner water line of the eye or try smudging a touch into the inner eye area or just under the brow bone. This isn’t called ‘hello bright eyes ‘ for nothing!
NUXE HUILE PRODIGIEUSE OR
I had never heard of a dry oil before, but this product is amazing, I am addicted to this little beauty! It comes in a regular or shimmer formula and can be used on the face, body or hair. The shimmer is perfect for that winter getaway or an evening out, apply to the face, shoulders or decollate for a beautiful shimmery glow or or a subtle sheen try adding a touch into your moisturizer. The perfect product for Calgary winters, the moisturizing properties of an oil without the greasy oily feel. A must try!
