I’ve only ever heard good things about Wet n Wild lip products, so when I was walking through Walmart a few weeks back I decided to pick up this Mega Last Lip Colour in Just Peachy and it did not disappoint. It’s a peachy (almost coral) shade that runs slightly more pink on my skin tone, which is totally fine by me because I feel it’s super wearable. Not only is the shade absolutely beautiful, but the formula is pretty freaking good for this bargain. It’s described as a semi-matte, creme finish which is spot on if you ask me. It’s so effortless to apply and is opaque in one coat. On me, it doesn’t last the 4 hours that Wet n Wild claims, but I really wasn’t anticipating a super long-wear lippie for $3. Obviously, there are better wearing formulas out on the market, but, I personally, have no complaints touching up every few hours. Not a one.

Have you tried this lipstick? What were your thoughts and what other shades from the range would you recommend?!

We’re experiencing the most beautiful spring/summer weather here, so I’ve been opting for colourful polishes. Although the shade Full House is out of my usual comfort zone, I decided to give it a try and am not disappointed at all! It’s such a vibrant, fun colour and I’ve gotten tons of compliments on it. The formula is pretty impressive too, but I think I should buy the corresponding top coat to give an honest review of the Revlon Colorstay Gel Envy line.

Would you wear a shade like this?

About a month back, Taylor (What Taylor Buys) asked me to write a guest post for her. I was way too excited when she e-mailed me because I’ve been following her blog for quite sometime now. It came as a bit of a shock, I never really expected anyone would contact little old me to be a guest blogger! I obviously said yes as I was so over-the-moon about this opportunity! She didn’t have a specific topic or idea for me, so I decided to round up a few of my current favourite pastel products (see the post on her blog to read more about them). It seemed like the perfect fit because spring is finally here and Easter has just passed! I was really happy with the post I wrote up for her, I decided I’d make a quick companion here showing you a look you can achieve with these products – and, of course, to let you know my exciting news!

I rarely play with colour in my makeup or wardrobe, so this look is pretty subtle. I think of pastels are innocent and feminine and wanted to reflect that in this look by keeping everything sheer. Nothing dramatic here. Hopefully this inspires some of you to step out of your comfort zone too!

I hope you’ve enjoyed this. Have you been playing with pastels? Of course, head over to Taylor’s blog to see what I wrote over there!

Woah, that title sounds a little racy, huh! I honestly kept going over what to call this post, and decided there was no other concise, upfront way of titling this! Haha, whoooopsies! But it got your attention, right? Now that spring has officially arrived, I’m ready for fresh, minimal makeup looks. A natural flush is the perfect way to bring life to the face without being too over the top. Lately, these three products have been on rotation for almost bare cheeks.

A new love is The Body Shop Honey Bronze Bronzing Powder in 01 Light Matte which is perfect for a natural all-over bronzer or some subtle definition (not contouring as this shade is quite fair, but it does help to bring shape to the face). There is no hint of orange or shimmer and it blends onto the skin so smoothly. I’ve been really impressed!

Onto a long-time love of mine, Rimmel Match Perfection Blush in Light/Medium. You can tell I get a lot of use out of this because the rings of the pan are starting to show on the darker shades. The colours are almost matte, and seem quite powdery, but I find they blend to be very natural and have a pretty good lasting power. This definitely isn’t a very pigmented powder, but the shade is so natural and pairs perfectly with any look, especially if you’re a blush newbie like myself!

Lastly, the Essence Silky Touch Blush in 50 Sweetheart is slightly more pinky and does have a slight sheen to it, but it is not glittery! It adds a natural glow to the cheeks and the formula is seriously impressive for only $3. I can’t complain about this at all and am for sure interested picking up a couple more colours, but opted for this one as it’s a very versatile shade.

What is your barely-there cheek pick?

It’s kind of shocking to me, but Moneyless March has not been too difficult so far. I’ve been tempted (as always) but I also feel kind of accomplished getting more use and play out of the things I already own. I’ve actually managed to hit pan on 4 powder products and 1 cream product. So here’s what’s coming to an end soon:

Lancome Dual Finish Versatile Powder Makeup in Matte Porcelaine I I’ve had for far too long, and I’m kind of looking forward to seeing it go even thought I did enjoy it. However, there are much cheaper alternatives with just as great quality.

Benefit Hoola is my go-to bronzer, and I’ve been using it every single day. My face feels bare without a bit of contour these days. This will definitely be a repurchase when it does go, although there is still a fair amount of bronzer remaining.

Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder in 001 Transparent will forever be a repurchase, this one is my third as a matter of fact. There’s something so great about this powder, and I can’t imagine not having it in my collection or in my purse everyday.

Revlon Powder Blush in 040 Softspoken Pink a beautiful natural, everyday blush shade. It’s never too overpowering, but still adds a nice, subtle healthy glow to my cheeks. I must say, it’s nothing special, but it’s not a bad product either!

Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer Creme Compact (sample) in Nude I’ve only recently started to play around with this, and I’ve actually been really liking it. The coverage is really nice for a tinted moisturizer and it has SPF 20, so that’s always a bonus!

Hitting pan on products is something that never happens for me as I always have so many new and old things on rotation. It feels nice to get some serious use out of my makeup instead of just collecting. If you’re a beauty addict like myself, you’ll totally understand how difficult it can be ever finish anything.

What products have you hit pan on recently?
