Annabelle TwistUP


I know not another lips product review but girlfriend is waiting for the Holiday collections that should hit the shelves only in the first days of November. A friend of mine told me a few weeks ago about a big promotions going on for the Annabelle TwistUP. For 24 minutes you could get the 24 products for 24$ for their #24days promotions where you had to wear one different color everyday. Habitually the whole set is for 238$ which means 9.95$ each.  So you know why I had to get them. But the offer was so big that websites stop to work even before the 7pm. Seeing all the problem they decided to let the offer run until they run out of stock but I couldn't. A lot of people where really mad about this I was too because they shouldn't had made so much promotions if they didn't have a good websites. So to make it up to everybody who haven't get a chance to get the 24 TwistUP they have decided to run a kind of giveaway where you just had to send your email and a few random people would get a code to get them. I tought that I will never be choosen but I have and was happy about. 

Annabelle is a Canadian cosmetics brand who was bought a few years ago by Marcelle. They offer a great  range of products from mascara to BB creams. This was the first time I ever tried anything from the brand. 

They came in 24 differents colors but I only choose to open two mainly because I wanted to share them with my friend who wasn't able to get them and why open them all when I don't to use them all now and give some away. Don't forget makeup has a expiration date. 




This not the first time I've use some retractable lipstick crayon. I tried last year I think one Chubby Stick from Clinique and I didn't reallt like it but when I was in New York during the summer I got one from ELF for 3$ and was impressed by it. Matte, pigmented and inexpensive. I couldn't ask for more. The TwistUP goes in the same range but they are more glossy which surprinsingly I don't hate. They are pigmented but you have to put a few coat one if you want to pop up more. You can also wear a lip liner under it. But you can also use them to trace your lips and them fill them with the same one. 


They goes on so  easily. I like when you don't have to work something a lot to get a good result. They are not drying which is good for a lip product. Even when most of the product is gone you still have some trace on your lips. 



Pros
The ingredients  list is a good point. There is no perfum or parabem. And the TwistUp also contains some natural ingredients like omega 3/ 6 and shea butter. You don't need a sharpener because they are retractable and it's a 2 in one : A lipstick and a liner. 

Cons
Like I said previously, you have to put a few coats on to get a fully pigmented result which can be annoying at the end but it maybe because of my skin color so I don't really hold it against these TwistUp. For me this is the only bad point.

Sephora Collection | Color Lip Last




I was wandering around downtown on my lunch break and pay Sephora a little visit and got this lippie.

Today post i'm reviewing  Sephora Color lip last lipstick. You can get them in 28 colors. In store or online. From this collection you can get 5 mattes lipsticks and the rest are regular ones.

I got it in the color 20 Wanted Red which is deep matte color. This is a waterproof lipstick. There will be no transfer if you let it dry for a few seconds. It does have a spongey feeling which I find kind of weird but it's fine at the end. My only problem with this lipstick is the smell. It smells like bad grape candy. 

But except for that, for me it's the perfect red lipstick for fall. It won't last 10 hours like the Sephora website says but which lipstick acutally does. 



It looks great with and without a lip liner and is very very pigmented. I only swatche it one time. And you got this gorgeous color. If you doesn't want it matte, you can just add a little of gloss over it.

What I really like about this lipstick is that you don't need to work it. It goes on so easily and smoothly, has great coverage and you can take it off with no problem with a good makeup wipes.


Actually the color is not as bright as the pictures show it. It looks a lot like MAC Ruby Woo. As i'm writing this post I swatche them side by side on my hand and you can't even say which one is which one. They also almost have the same texture but the Ruby Woo is more dry.

If you want a cheaper alternative to the Ruby Woo go for it. The lipstick retail for 15$ CAD.



I think I should go for some news colors and go out of my comfort zone. I'm always buying reds. If you have some suggestions leave them on the comment section.

Rimmel Apocalips Lip Lacquer


How are you all doing? Today post is about some lip products that came out in the UK months ago but just during the summer here in the US and Canada. I still don't really understand what they are to be honest. Not lipstick and neither gloss. A bit weird. 




I hesitated during quit some time because I didn't need more lip products and I hate glossy and shiny stuff. But I was at the opening of Target and didn't really find anything so I grab these two babies. I forget to tell you that the review is about Rimmel Apocalips Lip Lacquer but in Europe they have an other name. (Go online and find the name to finally saw that they have the same name everywhere. Silly me!)

I bought them for 7.99$ each.  I took them in two colors:  303  Apocaliptic and 400 Big Bang. I only bought two first to see If I was going to like them before buying more. 

The Rimmel Apocalips Lip Lacquer came in 8 colors. 



Pros

I love the packaging because it does live out to the name of the product: Apocalips. The wand is absolutely perfect. So soft for your lips and goes on smoothly.  What you see on my wrist is only a coat (I know I say that a lot).  Very pigmented product. I kind of like the scent also. Not too strong.

Cons

Because it's kind of a glossy product it does transfer and you can't really do anything about it. They also don't stay on very long.


Have you ever tried the Apocalips Lip Lacquers before? Tell me your opinion in the comment section.

OOTD | Dressing Up for Career Day


Hello Lovelies, 

I haven't done an outfit of the day since when I was in the US. Which is a long time ago. I taught I will show you what I more to the career day that happened at my university Tuesday from last week. For those who maybe don't know what Career day is: it's like the one in high school. We have these one every semester and their purpose if for us business to get jobs and so the compagnies learn a bit more about us and also what they can offer us.  




For this event you had to dressed up professionally. I didn't want to over do it, so I only wore a pair of black pants and a vest.  I also usually dress up like this for when I have to do some business presentations or exposé.

Having a whole Dynamite outfit wasn't made on purpose. But I just love their stores now. So many great affordable choices. I opt for a blue vest because I didn't want to go all black and to stand out from all the black during the day. I was right for doing this. 

Vest: Dynamite
Belt: Dynamite
Pants: Dynamite


This is the first time, I find a pair of black pants that fit me so well. Very happy. I looked so professional. I also did keep my makeup very simple. I have  Clinique Even Better foundation on if you want to know. 


What did you all think of my outfit? Do you ever have to get dressy for work or school or even anything else. Post it on Instagram  and tag me by using the #LFBDressingUp. So I can get some inspirations for futur outfits.

MAC Retro Matte Collection | Ruby Woo


Bonjour les filles,

I think that Ruby Woo is one of MAC most iconic lipstick color. A lot of beauty lover own. I go very often to the MAC counters but I never find this color until a few weeks ago. I was looking for a lipstick and it automatically catches my eyes. It was love at first sight if I may say. I think that it came back because of the new collections that was coming out in a few weeks after that: The Retro Matte Collection.

The Collection came in 8 lipsticks shades: Steady Going, Runway Hit, Dangerous, Relentlessly Red, Flat Out Fabulous, Fixed on Drama, Ruby Woo and All Fired Up. I really wanted to get the last one but I resisted. The Collection also have 8 lip pencils shades. 

Pros 
They are all matte lipstick which I'm very happy about if you know me well you know why. Also very pigmented and gorgeous colors. I wored it to a thing and a lot of people were giving me compliments about my lips. I find that I have a better result when I use a lip liner first. I use one red from Sephora. The price is fine also 18$. 

Cons
The only thing I don't like about this lipstick is the mark that it left when your are drinking something which is quit annoying. They should really do something about it. And when you wear it you will have to do some touch out.
