Get a lipstick like Britt from The Bachelor

Did you watch The Bachelor this season? I sure did! I love romance and the drama in the house.

This season a lot of the drama surrounded Britt, who may or may not become The Bachelorette in a few weeks. Although her fake tears and dramatic exit got a lot of attention, there was one other thing that Britt was known for. That hot pink lipstick!

Check out this article I wrote over on an up-and-coming blog, Pretty Chatty, and see the perfect dupe to match Britt’s bright lipstick! Read the full article here.

Organix Nourishing Coconut Oil

Do you like coconut? Do you dislike dry ends?

If you answered yes to these questions then I have the perfect hair oil for you.
The Organix Nourishing Coconut Oil has been my miracle product this winter. With the cold weather and crazy wind, I find my hair gets dry and frizzy the minute I step outside. My split ends get worse and the wear and tear on my strands causes some serious damage. I haven’t yet ventured into the world of hair masks, but hair oil is my new best friend.

Sometimes hair oil can be a total disaster, like last week when I tried a really thick one that left my hair greasy and gross. Luckily my go-to oil is a lot lighter and I never overdo it.

The Organix Nourishing Coconut Oil is light and easy to apply, and doesn’t leave my hair looking stringy, greasy, or wet. I spray about 5 pumps into my palm and ten rub my hands together and through my hair. I try to give some extra attention to the ends. I happen to love coconut scents so the refreshing smell of this is perfect for me. It reminds me of being on a tropical vacation or sitting on a beach with a Pina Colada in hand.

This hair oil smells incredible (if you like coconut) and works like a charm. It smoothes my frizz, fights my dry ends, but doesn’t weigh down my hair or make it look oily at all. It’s the perfect combination and has become my go-to hair product this season.

Maybelline Asia Baby Lips

I recently did a swap with my wonderful new friend, Vanessa, who is living in Hong Kong right now. She told me about some really neat Maybelline products and was kind enough to send me some really cool things to blog about. One of the most interesting things Vanessa told me about were the Maybelline Asia Baby Lips, which are totally different than the ones we have in North America.

These Maybelline Baby Lips have completely different packaging than the ones in Canada. The Asian ones are packaged like regular chapstick tubes, instead of the bigger cylinder shaped ones. They also have different colours and flavours, like these two Vanessa sent me, Watermelon Smooth and Berry Crush.

Aside from the different look, these were pretty similar to the Baby Lips I know and love. The formula was soft and smooth, and the colour was light enough for everyday use but can be layered for a more opaque look. The Berry one was more pigmented and is a shade I can see myself wearing frequently.

I love that I have these unique Baby Lips to join my ever-growing collection. They’re cute and convenient to keep in my purse, and have a light sweet scent.

My Favourite Makeup Remover Right Now

Have you ever tried the L’Oreal Paris Sublime Soft Gentle Micellar Solution makeup remover? This remover is so soft on my skin and doesn’t leave it oily or dry.

I only use makeup remover for a bold lipstick or a lot of eye makeup, but my pet peeve is when the remover leaves my skin feeling oily after. Then I have to wash my face after and it seems like so many extra steps. I also hate when makeup remover leaves the delicate skin near my eyes all red and dry. With the Sublime Soft remover I don’t have to deal with either of these problems.

This remover is fragrance free and hypoallergenic, so even the most sensitive skin can use it. It’s smooth without being oily, and leaves skin feeling soothed instead of dry. What more could you want in a makeup remover?

The OCC Stained Glosses are high-pigment stains that are a little wet and sticky to apply but once they dry they’re like paint. They stick to lips and deliver opaque colour and a nice gloss.

MAC Soft and Gentle Mineralize Skinfinish

This is one of those cult products that I have heard about for years and never gotten around to trying. I recently discovered an almost brand new compact in my mother’s makeup drawer, and was ecstatic about this treasure. MAC Soft and Gentle Mineralize Skinfinish is a shimmery mineral highlighting powder.

This is a light powder with a lot of shimmer. It has a soft golden hue and can be built up to get a bit of a more opaque look. Many women use this as an everyday highlighter, however I find it suits me best for more special occasions. Although it looks intimidatingly shimmery in the pan, it actually delivers a much softer (and gentler) look when applied.

For a delicate gold flush to highlight your cheekbones, MAC Soft and Gentle is a well-loved choice. It’s high quality, gorgeous formula, and a tried and true favourite around the world.

The Body Shop Limited Edition Smoky Poppy Scent

Okay I have to admit when I first heard about the new scent from The Body Shop I was a little unsure. What exactly does a poppy smell like? Or a smoky one? Since I couldn’t imagine it myself I knew I had to check out The Body Shop Smoky Poppy scent.

The Body Shop Smoky Poppy Limited Edition Scent

The Body Shop Smoky Poppy Limited Edition Scent

This is a limited edition scent and is available in all of the classic products, including Body Butter, Shower Gel, Body Scrub, and more. The Body Shop explains the scent as ‘Enriched with real, hand-picked poppy flowers from the Ankara region of Turkey. This sensual and indulgent range is infused with a seductive, euphoric scent that will leave you longing for more.” You can read more about the new scent here at thebodyshop.ca and check out the full range of products.

Although that seemed confusing at first it actually hits the spot just right. The scent is soft, warm, and calming to me. I liked the smell of it at first but as time went on and I kept wearing it I ended up really liking it, and perhaps even loving it. It has a subtle baby-powder type of scent, with a real softness and light tone. It’s feminine and delicate but still keeps it scent for a long time. It definitely has a romantic hint to it and I can totally agree with the seductive and indulgent description. It reminds me of the Vera Wang Princess perfume, which is a classic feminine scent.

The Body Butter is super moisturizing and creamy, and I love putting it on before bed. It’s soothing, smooth, and super softening. I love all Body Butters but this one has a really gentle feel to it. The Shower Gel is great for a relaxing and calming experience, and overall every product in this line is really great.

If you haven’t checked out this new scent you definitely should, since it is limited edition it won’t be around forever!
