Luxe Advent Calendar

Written by:


I have been waiting for a product like this to hit the Canadian market ever since this time last year when I was lusting over the Selfridges exclusive beauty calendar. Enter the Luxe Advent Calendar (courtesy of L'Oreal and Loose Button).

They've replaced the traditional chocolate surprises with deluxe beauty samples for the makeup lover in your life. You will receive goodies from great brands like Yves Saint Laurent, Giorgio Armani, Lancome, and Shu Uemura.

It's now on sale on Loose Button's website. It will set you back a pretty penny, $109 to be exact. With that, you also will get a $10 gift card towards purchasing the full size on Loose Button's website. I'm sure the price will be a little turn off for most, but if you have the means, it would make a wonderful gift for someone or a treat for yourself!

While it's definitely something that I would pick up for myself, I was fortunate enough to receive one in advance. 

Keep an eye out for a more in depth review soon, and also a little something something for you, too! x

Giveaway | No Bleeding Lips Secret Lip Liner

Written by:

FILED UNDER | , , , ,

No Bleeding Lips Secret Lip Liner is a brand new product that has made it's way to Canada. Thanks to Loose Button, I was able to give it a try and also give one away to one of you!

What makes this lip liner different from one you may already own? Well, the premise behind this lip liner is that it's supposed to prevent / stop your lipstick or lip gloss from bleeding or feathering after you apply it.

I've tried it a couple times and it worked nicely. I think it's the perfect product to have if you're a fan of a bold lip. 

How it works? Well, it applies clear (you can't even tell you're wearing anything) and it creates a barrier around your lips to prevents your lip product from moving.

How to use it? Simple. Apply it before any lip products, and instead of applying it on lips or lip line (like normal lip liners), you're going to apply it around the perimeter of your lips. It's strange, but it works.

How long does it last? Not bad. I typically just reapply it when I reapply my lipstick / lipgloss (usually between 4 to 5 hours). It does claim to be waterproof. I can't attest to that, but I will say that my lipstick stayed in place even after a beverage.

Since it's clear, it will work with any lip product you own, no matter the colour.

Check out the video below of my quick review / demo!
