LVX Fall 2015 Monarch

Hello friends!

Fall is just around the corner, with the first day of September coming tomorrow. To celebrate the season, LVX has launched its Fall 2015 collection and it's got a perfect mix of transitional colours to get you from Summer to Fall.

The first colour I have to show you is the perfect gold shade for the season, Monarch. It is a warm gold with a hint of copper tones.

It applied smooth and was opaque in 1 coat.

It's a metallic polish with a shiny finish.

I added some elegant swirls courtesy of the Elegant Twist nail vinyls by Snail Vinyls, which can be purchased here:

Classy yet sassy!

LVX polishes are 5-free, meaning that they do not contain formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin, toluene, dibutyl phthalate, or camphor. They are UV and chip resistant, meaning that they won't change colour over time from exposure to the sun and are durable. LVX polishes can be purchased here:

Colour Pop Ultra Matte Solow and Donut

Hello lovelies!

Today's post showcases 2 more shades from Colour Pop Cosmetics Ultra Matte liquid lipstick collection.

The first colour is Solow, a medium dusty pink.

These lipsticks are opaque in 1 coat and are easy to apply.

This is one of my favourites in the collection because it's an everyday colour that can be worn to work or for play. 

The next lipstick to show you is Donut, a light pink with slightly orange undertones. It's brighter than Solow.

Here's a side by side comparison of Solow and Donut.
I was surprised at how Donut looked on my actual lips. It was more vibrant than what I expected.
It's a much more summery shade than Solow is.

Both were easy to apply and incredibly opaque. Colour Pop Ultra Matte liquid lipsticks retail for $6 each and can be purchased on their website:

Colour Pop Ultra Matte Midi

Hello lovelies!

My recent obsession has been lipstick, in particular liquid lipsticks that dry matte. My new fave brand is Colour Pop because their lipsticks are very highly pigmented, come in a wide array of shades and apply easily.

Today's post is on MIDI, a pink based nude with slightly brown tones. 

So easy to apply because it's opaque in one swipe. This shade is that subtle nude I've been looking for to go with a bold smokey eye.

You can always add a clear gloss over top to create another look, similar to the type of gloss Jennifer Lopez often wears.
