The new Matt Matt Matt lipstick formula from Essence has just released and it’s a good one! With a selection of 8 shades in this new launch, there is something to suit everyone’s matte lipstick needs! And at $4.49CAD each, these suit every budget too! You honestly can’t go wrong with this new product launch.

Now that I’m here writing up this post, I really wish I would have just picked up the last shade to finish off the collection! But oh well, 7 of 8 is plenty to give my full thoughts, you get the point, right? I’ve been wearing this formula exclusively for the past week and so I have lots to say about them. Let’s just hop right in!

When I saw this limited edition set from Kat Von D, I knew I had to grab it to try out some of the brands’ best known products. The Hello Canada set contains 3 minis of Kat’s best selling products all wrapped up inside of a large vegan leather bag.  Although, Kat Von D products have been available in Canada for what feels like years, I am glad they came out with this set. I personally, had never purchased any of the lip products before and who doesn’t love minis? These are handbag or travel essentials – and oh-so perfectly paired with a massive clutch. This would be a great introduction to the brand or a fabulous gift for a friend who purchases cruelty-free! I’ve read that Kat Von D is becoming 100% vegan and all the products contained in this set are vegan. This set is branded as Kat’s most coveted products, which are some of the brands best sellers. Inside of the gorgeous clutch there are 3 minis. There are 2 lippie formulas and a liquid liner, so there is something for most beauty lovers.

I am so unbelievably grateful and fortunate to have been sent this BitexInfluenster Vox Box to review and share with you! The box contains 2 of Bite Beauty’s The Lip Pencils, which are available exclusively at Sephora as of today. The VoxBox also contains 2 sample Amuse Bouche Lipsticks and a biodegradable Sephora pencil sharpener as these products are made to perfectly compliment the new launch. This new lip pencil is a highly anticipated one, because Bite always does lips right. I have had these products to try for a couple of days now, and have had the opportunity to really put these new pencils to the test, both with and without the Amuse Bouche Lipsticks and other lip products.  With 22 shades inspired by real lip-tones, there really is something suited to all shades and neutral lip products.

Well it is no secret that I am obsessed with the formula of NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams. Nope, it is not a secret at all. I have written about them here many times, posted about them on my instagram and even mentioned them in my current faves video a few weeks ago!
About 2 weeks ago I found myself wandering through a new Shopper’s Drug Mart and noticed that they actually carried a larger selection of shades than the Shopper’s I frequent (yes, I go there a lot) which were a bolder and more diverse than the shades I have seen most often, so I picked up 2 new additions and I still want more, let’s be honest!

The formula is so creamy, rich and easy to work with. These lip colours set and last a long time and are very easy to reapply and layer. I seriously cannot get enough of this formula, as it’s so comfortable, yet long lasting and truly matte. The colour applies evenly (only the deep shade Moscow requires 2 layers to get full opacity) and the shades are so gorgeous. There is some serious magic in these tubes, I’m telling you! I own 5 different shades at the moment, and have my eyes on a few more which will be mine in time.
Have you tried this formula? What are your thoughts?
