ELEGANT AUTUMN | Mary Kay 2016 Fall Line

15.8.16

Hey kittens!

I have the wonderful pleasure of being able to share the Mary Kay 2016 Fall line with you all! In the collection we have eight different gel semi-matte lipstick shades, two shades of Glowing Finish Illuminating Sticks, three nail lacquers, an eye colour palette and last but not least a gel liner duo!


Here are the gorgeous three nail lacquers in the colours Blue Debut, Rosy Encore, and Gold is Bold. Now, I didn't include any swatches because I did paint my nails but I absolutely suck at painting so I'll keep that to myself and just tell you what I thought of them! They're quite pigmented and in about two coats your nails are completely covered which is awesome. They dry pretty quickly and they go on very smooth.


 Next up is the beautiful eye colour palette in Rock The Runway. It features five gorgeous shades that definitely remind me of a runway when I see them. There is a gold, bronze, silver, royal blue and a dark blue.


Here are the swatches, as you can see I applied it to just my skin and then also to the NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk. I only applied two swipes of colour with an eyeshadow brush over my skin and then carried onto the base.

Starting from the top we have the dark blue, as you can see it's a bit patchy but once applied onto a base it sticks amazingly and is super pigmented. Next is the royal blue which almost seems to have a purple undertone but once applied to a base absolutely pops into the royal blue like in the palette. Next is the silver which isn't as pigmented but it isn't patchy and would be gorgeous for a pop of colour, on a base it has quite the grey undertones. The bronze is so gorgeous, it's quite pigmented and once it hits the base it gets intense and very chocolate. Last is the gold and my favourite from the palette and probably the most pigmented and consistent as it looks almost identical when it's applied to a base.


Here are the two Glowing Finish illuminating sticks in Gold and Bronze. They're incredibly creamy and blend pretty nicely. The pigment can get lost if you blend it too much since it is a cream but the sparkle stays, all depends how intense you like your highlight.


This was two runs over with the sticks on both sides, as you can see they're quite shiny? highlighty? whichever term you'd like to use, they are glam-tastic!


Here is one of my favourite products, I'm a huge fan of winged liner but I've never tried a colour other than black so this is exciting for me.


You also get a brush in the container which I personally love because, for me anyways, I like to use little brushes and it's nice to keep it all together because when you're travelling it's nice just to grab and go.


So here is the two colours of gel liner! You get a stunning gold and then a bronze colour. Unsure why the swatch here is looking a bit green, it could be because I swatched the gold first and then dipped into the darker bronze so it might have mixed a bit of the gold into there. Either way, both colours are stunning and smudge proof!


Now, here is the eight lipstick shades! The lipsticks are all gel semi-matte, they're actually the first gel lipsticks that Mary Kay has made. They also smell like fruit loops to me and I'm obsessed with that.


From left to right the shades are as follows: Mauve Moment, Rich Truffle, Poppy Please, Bashful You, Powerful Pink, Always Apricot, Midnight Red and Crushed Berry.


And there you have it! Mary Kay's 2016 Fall Line, thank you so much to Mary Kay for sending these to me!
Hey kittens!

I have a rather different product to share with you today, but important none the less! I am talking to you today about Arm & Hammer Truly Radiant toothpaste!


I am some one who basically has to have my coffee every morning, and I drink a large cup! My teeth were always a little tinted and I definitely had the dreaded coffee breath even after brushing my teeth sometimes but with this it doesn't happen anymore and my teeth are brighter than ever!


The Truly Radiant toothpaste is a fluoride anti cavity toothpaste and helps prevent tartar build up and claims that you'll have a radiant smile in just 5 days! I got to try it out in the flavour clean and fresh which is a clean mint taste, I love it! I don't find it too over powering which sometimes happens to me with mint and almost burns my mouth!


Overall, I really love this toothpaste. The fact that it totally removes any scent and colour of coffee is enough to make it one of my favourites now!

Let me know if this is a toothpaste you'd be interested in!

Hey kittens!

I wanted to share with you all this wonderful oil diffuser from Organic Aromas and their Signature 100% Pure Essential Oil Blend! Organic Aromas was so kind and sent me their Raindrop Essential Oil Diffuser in the colour light wood. They have a ton of different diffusers including laser etched and hand carved, and over 18 essential oils to choose from!


Lets start with the Signature 100% Pure Essential Oil Blend they sent me! This smells absolutely phenomenal, it's so hard to explain what exactly it smells like but to me it reminds me of strawberry lemonade and a fresh breeze on a warm sunny day. I swear, it's made from pure sunshine! Unlike a lot of other scents from wax melters, ect. this didn't give me a headache and asthma which is something that always seems to happen to me. You need the littlest amount and it fills your room with it's lovely scent! The little bottle you see above retails for $26.14 CAD for 10ml and is worth every last drop!


Now, onto the real star of the show! The Essential Oil Diffuser for Aromatherapy in the Raindrop shape, it is created with hand-made wood and custom blown glass! There are two different options for the wood colour, there is light wood which I received and then there is also a black wood option.

It is completely silent, doesn't use any heat or water and plugs into the wall, I love that it doesn't use heat or water because I have a curious kitten that I'm always worried about getting into these things! It also has a beautiful rainbow LED light that sparkles as it diffuses! It nebulizes the essential oil, spraying a beautiful, fine mist into the air. There is a little dial on the side so that you can control exactly how much you want to diffuse. It retails for $124.18 CAD.


Personally, this diffuser has made me switch from my Scentsy to this, and I'll never go back! The benefits from the essential oils is phenomenal and there are so many different choices depending on what you're looking for! I'm obsessed with them now and want one in almost every room!
