Plumfull Fall


The first thing that pops up into my mind when trying to open my post for those berries is Miranda Priestly in Devils Wears Prada: "Florals? For spring? Ground breaking." Except that here you would replace florals by berries and Spring for Autumn.

Yet there is a reason this colour is so popular comes this time of year. We like dark hues, but we still want a pop of colour. So berry tones are the perfect solution for this, a reminder of the fallen leaves, and a promise of mulled wine to come!

And it seems lots of the lipsticks and glosses I picked up in the past week (I know, and this is not even everything, I went shopping cray cray) were in those berry tones, ranging from burgundy to rose.

 

Hard Candy Ombre Lipstick in Friendly: This one is particularly fun, as it promises the 90's lipline effect in one product. The 90's are really on right now, but I'm not sure if this trend will pick up! It is nice and creamy though.


Revlon Colorstay Moisture Stain in Parisian Passion: I think this will be my favourite.a deep shade that will pop out from your scarf and knits!.


Personelle Rouge Expression in Elegant: All the colours from the lineup were tempting I have to say! They're made with shea butter and are so moisturizing!


L'Oréal Caresse Wet Shine in Romy: A blue toned pink gloss, I imagined it with rosy cheeks after an afternoon walk!

Do you like berry toned lips in the Fall?

Saturday's Stuff I Like

I'll miss this guy!

Hi from YQB!

I hope you are all doing well. After a stresful week of doing my bags and make sure everything is ready, I am now waiting for my flight!

I have tried my new camera this week and even though it's a little harder to get around it, I think I'm doing not too bad. Of course. I'll have to adapt to all kinds of lighting and focus and whatnot, but that's the beauty of having a DSLR camera!

I had a hug session with my guy Felix hehe the night before leaving for Quebec City. It's a chance I did, because in the morning when I left, he was mad at me for going away and didn't want to come and see me. I'll miss him!

I slept at my friend Mel, as I usually do in Quebec City and we had so much fun yesterday watching funny videos! I haven't laugh that much in a loooooooooooooong time. Gee, Mel is the best for laughing with!

Speaking of Mel, she is now working for Quebec's Dance School and they had an event planned in front of a church today and they were giving a dance workshop. The weather was so nice, it's actually Indian Summer so it was the best day for them!

Tomorrow morning I'll be in Paris and getting used to my new environment. My futur boss is going to greet me at Gare du Nord and come to show me my new place. I'll also probably going to my friend Nissa'a boutique, Melrose Place, in the afternoon. My dayplanner is already full!

Hope you have a great time and I'll take to you later, in Paris! :)

Fall 2014 Loose Button Luxe Box


I have to say that I amost unsubscribed from the Luxe Box seeing as the last few boxes were less than brilliant, and that also my complaints to them were left unanswered. I was disapointed to be offered leftovers from previous boxes I already had, with crappy products I found at the dollar store (I'm not saying all dollar store are crappy. But chalk hair color that doesn't show up. C'mon!)

But I will agree that this latest box is quite appealing. Probably all the products will come with me to Paris, except maybe one.


Burt's Bees 100% Natural Lip Gloss in Autumn Haze: This will be a nice nude to bring overseas. I've tried Burt's Bees lip products before, but not the lip glosses. I'm not a fan of the scent though, it smells waxy.



So Susan Universal Blush: I like the packaging of this brand, that I don't really know. I've seen it on blogs but other than that I don't know. It is a finely milled pale pink powder, I think for my complexion it will be best used as a highlighter.

 

So Susan concealer Quad: Again, I like the girly packaging. It will be handy to have for all my needs in the next few months.


Vita Liberata Luxury Tan Rapid: I don't usually fake tan, as I just think it hads yet a thousandth step to the beauty regimen and they are a mess to use. I've seen a lot of review on this one, so I'll use it anyway.


Vasanti Brighten Up! Enzymatic Face Rejuvenator: I'm always excited to try a new face wash, this one has an inoffensive scent. Not good, not bad.

En Root Hair Shine Serum: This ones smells really good and a tiny size that will last me a few months!


Loose Button Fan Brush: They always seem to include a brush now, and this time it is a fan brush. I already have one, but I never think to use it. Will try to use this one!

Are you subscribed to a beauty box? What do you think of my new camera's pictures? Can't wait to use it in Paname!
