An Ode to YSL Bleu Céladon

Bleu Céladon from the YSL Summer 2014 collection has been on my fingertips weeks after weeks and not only because I absolutely ADORE the colour but because the quality is just amazing.

The minute I first applied this colour, it was love at first sight ! What got me even more head over heels in love is the quality and the staying power on this nail polish. YSL La Laque Couture nail polishes are better quality than most of the high end nail polishes but the YSL #50 Bleu Céladon La Laque Couture exceeded all expectations. I applied this colours on a Sunday night and removed it the next Sunday, without one chip, the polish lasted a full week on my nails looking super sharp. 
I have never gotten this many compliments on my nails !

Run now to your YSL counter because this color is a limited edition and I'm sure many have already started a long-term relationship with this baby ;p


Benefit Balms

Benefit always comes up with the best names, the best packaging and the best products. This time around they launched the new Benefit Balms that will match the Benefit cheek stains. 
(Benebalm, Lollibalm, Posiebalm, Chachabalm)

These new Balms are more of a moisturizing lip product, you will not get a huge color payoff but a little tint to your lips. Really cool for an easy look this summer, straight from the beach to the restaurant or out in the park. What's even cooler is you could gift it to a teenage girl that's dipping in the world of makeup and beauty. 

The Benefit Balms are available at your nearest Benefit counter (Sephora and Shopper's DrugMart to name a few)

But seriously how gorgeous is the packing on these Benefit Balms ?! 

These Benefit products would make such pretty party favours...Pinterest Board ;)


Classy White with NARS

Do you recognize the white vest...
For this look, I switched up my Casual White day outfit and added the sexy black skirt and the perfect black sandals, the easiest way out the door. 
To complement the ensemble, I wanted to enhance my lips but without wearing a big bold red lip. I opted for the NARS lipgloss in Quito which gives me the perfect red glossy tint and the perfect pop of colour for an evening look.

There's always a simple way to recycle your outfit and brighten it up with a nice gloss, like my NARS pick !

Rock, Paper, Burberry

If you have an addictive personality, you better sit down and reassess the situation, cos it's about to get cray up in here.

2 words...

Burberry Eyeshadows
(Clockwise from Top : Rosewood - Midnight Brown - Pale Barley - Mulberry - Almond)

In my opinion, the Burberry eyeshadows are by far the best eyeshadows available on the high end side of the makeup world. They are totally worth the buck. Burberry eyeshadows are like butter, but the good type of butter (if that even exists), they blend like a dream, they apply like perfection and they give you the perfect eye look. I fully blame miss Sandra from and her YT videos for converting me, but it's a very positive blame ;)

Rock, Paper, Burberry...

Burberry trumps all !

You MUST try them, trust me, you will not regret it.


Casual White with NARS

I love keeping it comfy on the weekends but there's always a way to step up your game with the perfect lip.
For this casual white number, I decided to add a pop of glossy pink with the the new NARS lipgloss in Easy Lover. NARS recently reformulated their lipgloss's and they are the bomb. They come in 7 new colours and 23 reformulated iconic NARS shades.

You can find the new NARS lipglosses at any NARS counter such as Sephora and the Hudson Bay.

Clarins Colours of Brazil Collection 2014

It's always fun to fall upon a good summer collection, the perfect bronzer, the perfect lips, the whole nine yards. Obviously, Clarins never disappoints with the Colours of Brazil 2014 Collection ;p
I missed out on this gorgeous bronzer last year and let me tell you when I saw the ads for this collection, I was jumping of joy ! The Clarins Bronzing Compact has the perfect bronzing colour, it does not make you look orange and I feel like it would complement multiple skin tones. 

For the eyes, a good neutral palette always makes me happy. The Clarins Colours of Brazil Eye Quartet offers the perfect nude colours with the hint of a gorgeous blue liner that adds that pop of colour to a nice summer makeup look. 

Finally, it was love at first sight when I saw these Clarins Lip Balm Crayons. I got my hands on the colours Creamy Pink and Delicious Plum. These Crayons leave such a nice effect on the lips, they don't offer a heavy colour payoff but sometimes that's exactly what you need for a nice day at the office or a relaxed weekend look. They smell very similar to my all time favourite Clarins product : Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector. The Clarins Lip Balm Crayons are very moisturizing on the lips and do not leave a slippery feel. A real must for this summer !

Adidas Ready for the WorldCup2014

Are you ready for the FIFA2014 WorldCup ?! 
Which team are you routing for ? 


It's Primer Time

As I have mentioned before, when summer arrives, I tend to reduce completely my makeup routine but it's always nice to add a primer for those nights out. I recently discovered the newest primer in the MakeupUpForEver family : the HD Microperfecting Primer. 

This MUFE HD Primer comes in 7 different shades to correct and enhance all different types of skin. 

#0 Neutral: a translucent base for all complexions
#1 Green: minimizes redness (ideal for rosacea)
#2 Mauve: neutralizes strong olive undertones
#4 Caramel: adds a warm glow to deeper skin tones
#5 Blue: gives a porcelain finish to fair skin
#6 Yellow: adds golden tones to dark complexions
#7 Pink: adds brightness and warmth

I opted for the #6 Yellow colored primer. I noticed a difference on the tone of my skin after I applied the MUFE HD Primer. My skin feels really smooth and the primer creates a really nice base for liquid or powder foundation and holds my makeup for the night.

I am slowly getting into discovering the MUFE brand and I 'm sure I will discover many more gems. 
Stay tuned  !

You can now Shop my MUFE Wish List ;)


Boy on the Blog

You may notice someone different as the face of this week's Fashion look : my one and only photographer : my partner in crime.
Pants Gap | Tshirt KateMossXPlayboy Marc by Marc Jacobs | Jacket H&M | Sneakers Nike | Backpack Adidas | Sunglasses RayBan | Hat H&M

It took many weeks of convincing to put the photographer on the other side of the lens and to display his fashion look on the blog. 

For this occasion, he decided to sport the KateMossXPlayBoy Marc by Marc Jacobs tee in order to celebrate PlayBoy's 60th anniversary. Paired with coloured jeans, this amazing H&M coat and his best accessory the Nikon, the boy has the perfect casual nonchalant look.

I must say he did a very good job, now let's convincing him for more boy fashion looks ! 


A Summer Scent

Ladies and gents, summer is here and it's time to take out those fresh summer scents. I don't know about you but I always alternate between my fall/winter and spring/summer scents, it's nice to switch the heaviness of the winter perfumes and to add a bit of freshness to your summer scent

Here are new scents that I will be discovering this summer : Daisy by Marc Jacobs, Be Jeweled by Vera Wang and See by Chloé

What is you signature summer fragrance ? 


Pigmentclar from LaRochePosay

Let's be honest, nobody has the perfect skin all year long. At some point, we're always going to suffer from dark spots or imperfections. For me, my least favourite time of the year (after winter that is !) is the transition between spring and summer. 

This year our spring was very poor and so was my skin. You might ask why I hate the transition ? Well, in summer I do not wear an inch of foundation on my skin because my skin catches the natural sun and my tan hides all those imperfections we all hate. But, during that transition time were the weather gets hot but the sun is not fully out yet, my skin won't be at his prime time. 

This year, I suffered from a lot of dark spots caused by blemishes and I was so worried that they won't be gone by the time that dreaded time of year was going to arrive but seriously, LaRochePosay kind of saved the day (dramatic bit ;p).

At the very very beginning of spring, I had the opportunity to try out the new LaRochePosay Pigmentclar product which is a serum that targets dark spots and pigmentation issues. The beauty gods heard me, because that's exactly what I needed (cue - Angels singing). 
If you have been reading my blog for a while, you know I do not talk about a product just to talk about a product. I truly test it out even if it takes weeks and weeks to make sure I am giving you the right and honest feedback.

Well, in this case, my love for LaRochePosay has just grown to another level because I have been using Pigmentclar for 5 weeks now and I truly can see a difference on my skin and the fading of my dark spots. But don't forget this product is meant to be used on a long term basis to prevent the hyper pigmentation. 

Once again, LaRochePosay does not disappoint and has yet again, integrated my daily skincare regimen.

A must in my book ! 


Do you dare at work ?!

You can definitely class up a leather look for some of the work places or work events. In my case, my work is a fashion school, so I can spice it up from time to time, creativity is key so it works well for me! 

For this work event, I attended a fashion show, it was sort of a double work event because I was representing the blog and the school and leather was obviously permitted ;p

I am not sure I would wear this full look at work but I could definitely switch up the pants for nice pink trousers and look very corporate as we say !

Do you dare at work ?
