Dior Addict Tie Dye Lipsticks

Dior-Summer-2015That’s right there? A lot of the goodies from Dior Tie Dye summer 2015 collection. Look at it in all its glory. Hoowee, tons of fun colours to play with, and many A+ products.

Dior-tie-dye-ip-balmsFour universally flattering colours, four easy to wear lipsticks that are more like tinted lip balms. Glossy, pigmented, comfortable on the lips and easy to apply without a mirror. Success. My kinda lip product.

Dior-Tie-Dye-LipsThese four limited edition lipsticks have a two-tone colour in them, with that second colour in the Christian Dior logo all the way through the entire tube. The two toned is meant to mimic a tie dye effect to the lips, and gives off a smooth glossy finish.

Spring Beauty & Fashion Haul

It’s Saturday. It’s time for a haul.

I don’t do much shopping now considering my income is limited. But I knew my friend from Canada was coming down for a visit, months in advance so I saved up some of my dolla bills and pretty much let loose when she arrived. Some of these items are also from my trip home to Newfoundland just a few weeks before her arrival, so here’s a little Spring Beauty haul!

BW-makeupDiorsnow lotion* | Acca Kappa lipbalm with SPF I picked this up while I was in Newfoundland, you can get it downtown St. John’s at my favourite store called Home, on Duckworth | Diorshow universal eyebrow pencil* | Bobbi Brown extra skin care set I purchased this from the ouetlets since the cost of 3 items was the cost of just the 1 eye cream that I’ve been using for years, inside is my fav eye cream, a hydrating serum and moisturizer | Estee Lauder Body lotion which was free with purchase with my Bobbi Brown skincare set.

Noticing a trend here, where everything seems to be mainly black and white. So on trend. Eye roll. But really. I’m loving everything. Well, minus the NARS birthday gift from Sephora because I fail at applying a red lip at the best of times. Some of the stuff of course were sent for review during this time, I’m not made of money. Notice the one’s marked with an *, they were given to me. Reviews coming soon!

Dior-Spring-2015A small preview of the Dior’s summer 2015* collection! Come back Tuesday for more.

Uniqlo-pantsThese pants have been causing a bit of controversy in our small household. My husband hates them. I personally love them. He calls them my wallpaper pants, and says that only women would like these pants. I’m going to keep wearing them! Next up is the Diorsnow makeup remover*. Not sure how I feel about this. I’ll chat more about it, because this is a haul — not a review.

Makeup-HaulI popped into Sephora last week to pick up my birthday gift. The NARS lip duo lipsticks. I am terrible with applying deep lip colours! With 100 of my Sephora points I redeemed them for the sweetest little Bobbi Brown lip balm. Oh, and because I felt guilty going into Sephora simply picking up my free birthday gift and leaving, I bought the Bumble and Bumble pret-a-powder hair texturizer/dry shampoo in one. I’ve heard great things about it, have you tried it? Two self tanners. Vita Liberita* & Dior Bronze*, I’m excited to try these out.

F21-hoodyNotice the Forever 21 Hoody? Do I really need a hoody when it’s warming up here in California? No. But I would have totally regretted not buying it. So my colours. Plus, stripes. It’s still available online for twenty bucks.

PradaSaving the best for last. A few of my must-have’s in my makeup bag at all times. Bobbi Brown extra hand cream (purchased at the outlets, because I’m not paying $30 for a hand cream), and a Cle de Peau concealer, which is on the complete opposite end of the spectrum at an exorbitant price — but this is a re-purchase for me. It’s that good. The prada bag has a bit of a story to it.

Before ya all get your knickers in a twist, I bought the Prada “makeup bag” as I like to call it, from the outlets. It was 50% off the original price, and it’s a product they have been making for as long as I can remember. I noticed my friend/hair stylist back in the early 2000’s had one in his bathroom – and ever since then, for ten years straight I had it in the back of my mind that I was going to buy one, one day. And why not — especially when it’s at the outlets? It’s finally in my haaaandsss.

Is this something you’d like to see more of? Let me know in the comments!
