MAC · Cool Neutral Palette, Pro Beyond Twisted Lash Mascara & Oval 6 Brush

 

So what do the Cool Neutral Palette, Pro Beyond Twisted Lash Mascara and the Oval 6 Brush all have in common? Apart from the fact that they’re all from MAC, these products have become staples in my beauty repertoire. With the copious launches this brand puts out every few weeks, it’s easy to overlook standout pieces such as these that also happen to be part of the permanent lineup. How refreshing to not have the dreaded ‘limited edition’ designation to contend with, wouldn’t you agree?

Kiehl’s · Original Musk Blend N°1 Eau de Toilette & Bath and Shower Cleanser

Kiehls Original Musk opener

Today is Valentine’s Day and I wanted to celebrate this day of love with something universal, such as this Original Musk Blend N°1 duo from Kiehl’s. The story goes that the recipe for this fragrance was originally created in the 1920’s at the Kiehl’s Apothecary, then forgotten, then rediscovered in the 1950’s in a vat labelled “Love Oil”, then rechristened Original Musk for its 1963 debut. Quite the interesting love story, no?

Burberry Liquid Lip Velvet

 

One of the latest releases from Burberry is their new Liquid Lip Velvet (CAN$38.00), and let the record show that my lips have never been happier to wear a liquid lip product. Available in 14 luscious shades that range from pale nude all the way to deep vampy, they have been created with the Burberry aesthetic: classically refined but with a naughty edge.
