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.

Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Stained Gloss

These are the cutest! Have you seen the Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Stained Gloss Test Tubes? They are mini lip stains that have serious staying power and bold, bright shades! 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.

The shades I’m showing you are Hedonist, a pale pink, New Wave, the hot pink, and Jealous, a bold classic red. As you can see they are all super glossy and very opaque. These are bold shades that stand out and make your lips the centre of attention.

Add Some Sparkle to the Holiday Season With Revlon

One of my favourite things about the holiday season is the added sparkle to everything. From decorations to part dresses everything gets a little boost of bling this season, and your makeup should be no different. Revlon has an awesome limited edition line of sparkly eye shadows and liners to create eye-catching looks.

The limited edition Revlon Photoready Eye Art Lid + Line + Lash is a dual-ended product with a super sparkly liner matched with a creamy shadow. There are 10 colour duos to choose from and they all pack a punch of glitter and pigmented shadows. The shades I have are Fuchsia Flash and Cobalt Crystal.

The shadow end of the tube is a creamy formula that is easy to blend and very opaque. Many of the shades are frosty and metallic looking. The liner side is a glitter formula in a gel base, with a skinny brush for easy application. The pairs go well together but can also be mixed, matched, or worn individually.

Both ends of the product are super easy to apply and glide on really smoothly. They have great colour choices and all of them are bold and bright. I love that the glitter can be layered for lots of sparkle, or lightly applied for a more spread out sparkly look. The liner side can be used as a thin line of glitter or blended for all over sparkle. It can even be applied to lashes for something really special.

The shadows have a great formula and last for quite a long time. I didn’t have any problems with creasing or flaking when I wore the shadow. I love that the duos are paired together so I can grab one product and know that it will work well together and create a complete look. Although the shades are pretty bold and bright, and maybe not for everyday wear, they are awesome for a special night out or a holiday event and I will definitely be reaching for them this season!

Get the Look: Lucy Hale

Lucy Hale stars as the edgy Aria on Pretty Little Liars, has a growing country music career, and has phenomenal style that I totally want to steal. As a pint-sized beauty Lucy rocks some seriously cute outfits, on screen and off, but it’s her beauty looks that really blow me away. She always seems to have the hottest lipstick shade and her brows are so bold.

Whether it’s the hot pink blush and lips she rocked at the 2014 Billboard Music awards, shown above, or her signature lucious lashes, Lucy Hale always looks great. She plays up some pretty bold features like her brows, lips, or lashes, but she never seems overdone. Instead of the usual advice to focus on one feature at a time, Lucy shows us how to create a total bombshell look.

Get The Look: Rachel Bilson on Hart of Dixie

I just started binge-watching another show on Netflix and all I can focus on is the main character’s makeup. The show is Hart of Dixie, starring the adorable Rachel Bilson. Not only is she a total style icon (hello, dressy shorts!) but her makeup looks always make me want to press pause and whip out my eyeliner.

Rachel Bilson has brown hair and brown eyes, just like me, and I think that’s why I relate to her looks so much. I feel like I can actually try them myself. Jamie King, the other female lead in Hart of Dixie, is a blonde, blue-eyed beauty, and as much as I love her Southern belle looks, I know they would look much different on me.

After watching a few episodes (okay.. binge-watching season one in a few days) I have come to love the makeup looks Zoe Hart rocks. Even in a small town she has her eyeliner game on point and always has a great neutral lipstick. In addition to some great pictures of Dr. Zoe Hart, I’ve also complied a few products to help get the adorable, sassy, doe-eyed look that Rachel Bilson rocks on the show.

To get her heavily lined eye look I would recommend a smooth gel-like liner that is easy to blend and smudge. A great option for this is the L’Oreal Paris Infallible Silkissime Eyeliner. This creamy liner is a breeze to apply and can be blended for a smooth, smoky look.

For full lashes like Dr. Zoe Hart, try the Maybelline New York The Falsies Volum’ Express Mascara. The curved brush gets every lash and the falsies-inspired formula offers lots of volume and length.

Dr. Zoe Hart always has glowing skin and you can get the same rosy glow and a subtle bronzing with one just product, Maybelline New York Dream Bouncy Blush in Coffee Cake. This golden-hued blush is a great way to add a slight highlight to cheekbones without going for a super-girly pink shade.

To get the neutral lip looks that Rachel rocks try one of the CoverGirl Jumbo Gloss Balms. These sheer gloss balms come in 16 pretty shades so you can find the perfect one for your everyday look. You can check out my review of them here for more information.

So there you have it. An easy how-to to get the adorable look that Dr. Zoe Hart, a.k.a. style icon Rachel Bilson, wears on Hart of Dixie. Now I’m only on season one so far so don’t tell me any spoilers but let me know if you watch this show too! 

Lancome Lip Lover Dewy Lip Perfectors: Review and Swatches

312 Pointe de Rose is a soft peachy-pink. It’s light and fairly sheer, but still have enough pigment to show up as a pretty pale pink that reminds me of a ballerina.

333 Rose des Nymphes is a medium toned pink that looks great for an everyday shade. It isn’t too dark or too light and have the perfect amount of shimmer.

357 Bouqet Final is a fuchsia toned pink that has the slightest purple hint to it. It’s more bold and berry-like than the others but has the same pretty shimmer and high-shine.

All three of these glide on super easily, last quite a few hours, and feel super smooth on my lips. They feel like a hybrid lipgloss-lip balm because they have a glossy texture and look but they feel smooth and soft like a balm. There’s no sticky or heavy feeling, which is very important to me.

The Lancome Lip Lovers are versatile shades in a great formula and adorable little package. The tube looks like a fancy lipstick but has a simple applicator wand so you can apply the colour perfectly.

I feel glamorous when I wear these and the pretty pink shades make me feel extra girly. For a quick feminine feeling these Lip Lovers are a go-to product and you can check out all the pretty shades at lancome.ca.

Have You Seen The Newest Baby Lips Collection?

The well-loved Maybelline New York Baby Lips Lip Balms are getting some new addition that you’ll be sure to love. Baby Lips are great moisturizing lip balms that come in a wide variety of shades ranging from clear to sheer to opaque. Joining the Baby Lips Electro, Baby Lips Dr. Rescue, and the original Baby Lips collections is the new Baby Lips Crystal Collection.

The shade shown above is Beam of Blush, a medium toned pink. The fun part about the Baby Lips Crystal lip balms is that they contain a hint of shimmer. You can see little glitter particles in the balm, and although it isn’t super noticeable on the lips it does offer a slight shimmer that previous Baby Lips shades didn’t have. 

As usual these balms are super soft, the formula goes on smoothly, and they smell fruity and delicious. The colour can be built up a little bit or left sheer, so they’re great for everyday wear.
