    Gwen Stefani x Urban Decay

    I have been lusting after the entire collection that Gwen Stefani collaborated on with Urban Decay. Every product looks insanely gorgeous and Urban Decay makes some incredible products. I was most excited about the lipsticks though, as lipstick is hands down my favourite makeup product. So, when her new lipstick line launched, I couldn’t resist picking up a couple new shades. I opted for ‘714’ and ‘Rock Steady’ but there is eight gorgeous shades to choose from. ‘714’ is the first lipstick in Urban Decay’s range in their new Mega-Matte formula. This lipstick goes on quite thick, but once it’s on it feels virtually weightless on the lips and is…

    Give Me Some Nude Lip

    I’m a sucker for the Sephora Favourites sets, as you may already know. Their latest ‘Give Me Some Nude Lip’ has been on my radar for a while, so needless to say I had to pick one up. The set comes in the cute lip shaped box their last ‘Give Me Some Lip’ set came in and this time it features five nude lip products. The set retails at $33 CAD but it has a value of $103 CAD, which is pretty incredible. It contains a full sized NARS lipstick inside which sells for $39 CAD normally, so it is definitely an amazing value! I love nude lips and the…

    Maybelline Lash Sensational Luscious Mascara

    It was no secret that I was a huge fan of the Maybelline Lash Sensational mascara, and I definitely wasn’t the only one. This mascara was well loved in the beauty community this past year; so when I saw that Maybelline had released a Lash Sensational Luscious mascara, I immediately went out and bought one. The packaging is the same as the original with the colours reversed. I was expecting the brush to be the same as the original too, but it isn’t, so I wasn’t sure if I was going to like this one as well. The formula of this one is infused with oil to promote healthier lashes,…

    Lipstick & Confetti Turns 1

    On this day last year I hit publish on my first ever blog post. I was kind of nervous about it, but it was such a good decision. This is one of the only things I have actually stuck with and I’ve learned a lot in the past year. Last week was a bit of a rocky one. I had some hosting issues causing my blog to temporarily be gone. I felt lost without my blog. It consumes so much of my time and is something I thoroughly enjoy working on, so having it disappear was definitely upsetting. Aside from that, I really love blogging and have learned so much…

    Splurge-Worthy Buys

    I love finding a good product that is affordable, but there are some that are truly worth the splurge. While I can’t afford to treat myself to more luxurious products all the time, I really enjoy when I can so today I thought I would run through some of the products in my collection that I would deem worth the higher price tag. YSL Glossy Stains These are incredible. They go on like a lip gloss but have the lasting power of a stain. There are so many pretty shades and the packaging is incredibly luxurious. The Beauty Blender Before trying this out I thought it was simply an overpriced…
