Tarte Lip Surgence Creme - shade " Wonder" The ingredients in this are all the things your lips are craving for. It's made with maracuja which is full of vitamin C and fatty acids to nourish the lips. Jojoba seed oil to smooth the lips and make them hydrated. Shea butter to keep the elasticity to the skin. Vitamin E is in the lip creme to add the benefits of an antioxidant. The shade is poppy hue, I find to be very bright and bold.
The lip creme is transferable and does not last threw a meal. It does stay threw an afternoon or evening when not indulging in food or drink. I quick touch up fixes it if eatting. The ultimate feel of it is very hydrating on the lips. Full size $29.00 CAN/ 3g/0.1oz Size in bag 1.6g/0.056oz. Making this roughly around $11.00 CAN
Luxie Beauty - Dreamcatcher Tapered Highlighter Brush 522 The light periwinkle handle makes this super easy to find in my brush collection. Luxie brushes are 100% cruelty free made with synthetic hairs. 100% vegan made with bristles that are coated with antibacterial solution, to keep them more hygenic for solo face use. If using on multiple clients I still advise to cleanse throughly between each use. This brush in peticular is an extremely versitile highlighting brush used with wet or dry highlighters. From baking to contours, setting the t zone area and under eye this brush can do it all. You can buy the entire brush collection for $150.00 USD = $192.25 CAN This individual brush is $32.00 USD = $41.00 CAN. Luxie was founded in 2014 by Tammy Huynh, it's worth checking out her beauty products as well that are infused with vitamins to benefit the skin .
Skinn Cosmetics - Bright Eyes Eye Enhancing Eyeliner Nude eyeliner to rim the waterline to help create a wide awake look. This has been a fun secret tip of mine for awhile. In comparasion I do like this liner a lot more than the Rimmel Scandal Eyes Nude liner. It has a longer staying power in the water line. For us in Canada you can buy this on the Shopping Channel Canada. $18.00 USD 0.01oz (0.3g) we received the full size in this months IPSY bag. $23.10 CAN
StarLooks Cream Eyeshadow in Rose Gold This packaging comes with a Dom applicator, you can also apply with a flat synthetic concealer brush or your fingers. The colour is absolutely stunning with such shimmer. My favourite technique has been applying it in the inner part of the eye for luminosity. $ 12.00 USD for full size $15.40 CAN . The website did not list the size I'm going to estimate the size we got is half size. Making this $7.70 CAN
Moroccan Oil Treatment Oil By this point we have all heard of Moroccan oil that started a haircare revolution. This Argan oil and vitamins hair product helps condition your hair keeping the follicles damage free and added high shine. This is my favourite product to use to smooth the Friz out of my hair. Applying it to damp hair, it smooths and detangles before I use heat styling tools. Apply it on dry hair as an finishing oil to add extra shine. Suitable for all hair types. Smallest size available for retail is $6.50 USD .85fl oz/ 25 ml the size we received in the bag was 0.34fl oz/ 10ml $3.30 CAN
