Well has it not been a while! I am so sorry for the hiatus but I think it’s safe to say I am back (yet again) and excited to share all my new favourites and what is going on! I just got back from a whirlwind trip to that consisted of airplanes taking me from Toronto to New York, Athens, Santorini, Paris and New York again. Amongst this I’ve discovered a new fragrance and pair of lip colours that I have fallen in love with!  First is the classic Tom Ford, Black Orchid – I was never a big fragrance person but I’ve been more inclined since my transition into my new vibe! SO I think I found my fragrance in Tom Ford. Next are the Tom Ford lipsticks in Pink Dusk and Indian Rose – Both beautiful nudes one more a darker tint and the other lighter and brighter! Both equally beautiful and both I equally recommend either for yourself OR with the holidays around the corner, for that special someone that you want to pucker up and smooch or smell like a billion bucks!!!.. Stay tuned for more as I am ROLLING it out! XOJAY

NARS Velvet Matte Foundation Stick NARS Audacious Collection

Exciting news from my friends over at NARS! For Fall 2017 the iconic beauty brand is pleased to announce two new launches! First and for the first time ever, NARS is introducing foundation sticks with the launch of the ‘Velvet Matte Foundation Stick‘. Available in 20 shades, here we have [from top to bottom] Trinidad, Barcelona, Stromboli and Ceylan! I guess they are all named of exotic locations around the world! I personally did a swatch test on my skin of the products and I can’t believe how they literally GLIDE on and are so pigmented which means I will basically be using these as concealers for the most part and blending with liquid foundations because they are soooo creamy! Can always count on NARS for that! Another plus about these foundation sticks, the opposite end of the product is a touch up blending brush head which means you can blend it in with the same tool! #IMSHOOK!! Definitely can’t wait to beat a whole face with this!

 

The second launch is where “attitude finds artistry” in the new ‘NARS Audacious Collection‘ featuring a total-control ‘Audacious Mascara’ which separates, lengthens and amplifies lashes in rich jewel tones from purple to a reddish brown to a navy (see above) to a black satin.. The collection is also accompanied by six ultra-saturated shades of ‘Audacious’ lipstick high in pigment and full in coverage! I got Vieke and Louise (see above!)

It’s so crazy, every week or two is like a new eye opening experience in the world of make-up for me! If you read a bit of my last post, you’ll now know that I recently learned how to put lashes on.. I have also been learning how to apply eyeshadow, liners, etc.. How to properly contour and all these other crazy amazing things that have really helped evolve the way I not only apply but look at makeup. It really is such an artistry.. Blending, painting, colour matching, enhancing, etc… I have to say this is probably one of my favourite beauty looks to date.. I believe it’s the most refined version of what I normally try to do and with the added touch of the extra voluminous lashes!!! For this face I used:

  • @DermablendPro quick fix concealer
  • @Armanibeauty Luminous Silk Foundation
  • @UrbanDecayCosmetics Naked Heat Palette
  • @YSLBeauty touche éclat under eye highlighter
  • @Ardell_Lashes 250’s
  • @MacCosmeticsCanada Dark Deep Bronzer as contour
  • @NYXCosmetics_Canada Contour + Highlight Palette + Corset Lipstick
  • @Lac.Beauty Brows by @jessicaesavedra

Last night here in Toronto I had the pleasure of attending the ‘CLUB YSL #YSLBeautyCrew‘ party which I have to say… Was such a blast!!!!!!!!! I was dying because I loved walking into the party and just seeing a sea of all black fashion…… SOOOO YSL??!!!!!!!!! The party was filled wall to wall with so many people, lots of familiar faces  and of course, enough champagne to keep everyone hydrated (tough life!!!  LOL!)…. I actually had such a dope time turning it up with my friends but I have to say… more importantly FINALLY getting acquainted with YSL beauty products as (I’m ashamed to say) I have never used YSL beauty products before!!! It was my first time ever even trying them this night, and I only tried a couple!!! I actually ended up falling in love with a couple things :)… So obviously with that said I am super excited to get to know the brand a bit better and try some of these goodies and the VIP gift bag….. stay tuned 😉 xx
