If you love Korres’ Lip Butters, then you will love Korres Line Smoothing Lip Butter Glaze Trio.

Korres Lip Butter Glazes in Jasmine, Pomegranate, Raspberry

Korres Line Smoothing Lip Glazes are almost a liquid lipstick-they are pretty pigmented! They are supposed to smooth fine lines, condition the lips and improve texture. Korres Line Smoothing Lip Glazes contain moisturizing oils, sugar cane to condition and improve your lips, and pomegranate fruit sterols to smooth lines and give them some antioxidant protection.

Korres Line Smoothing Lip Glazes feel very creamy and smooth and deposit a decent amount of colour for a lip glaze.

Raspberry
Jasmine
Pomegranate

Korres Line Smoothing Lip Glaze Trio is a great fall buy because you get a trio of colours that are very trendy right now. These are limited edition too, so you better hurry if you’re interested!


So what does a Beauty Junkie do on her day off? Go shopping of course! 

I decided to stop at Holt Renfrew today(that’s our Canadian equivalent of a Bloomingdales I’d say). Much has changed at my little Holt’s! I now have Armani and Shu Uemura counters in my town! My poor hubby is quite grateful-no more having to stop in at Holt’s in Vancouver for me when he’s out of town working! 

 I went to Holt’s to check out Jo Malone’s new Pear & Freesia cologne and after taking a whiff of it, I decided it didn’t do anything for me. So I wandered over to the Laura Mercier counter and checked out the Bath and Body products. I am so glad I did! 




Behold my two new bathroom additions: Laura Mercier Crème de Pistache Honey Bath & Soufflé Body Crème! They smell sooooo good!

Laura Mercier Crème de Pistache Honey Bath has Vitamins A & E in it which leaves your skin so moisturized like no body cleanser out there. The fragrance stays with you after you are done. You need very little of Laura Mercier Crème de Pistache Honey Bath to get a good lather-I used too much and will have to be more careful next time.

Laura Mercier Crème de Pistache Soufflé Body Crème is a whipped and luxurious body cream that moisturizers your skin with no greasy feeling at all. Again, a little goes a long way!

Laura Mercier Crème de Pistache Honey Bath & Soufflé Body Crème smells divine-like a creamy pistachio nut dessert-but not overly sweet-more grown up than that. I usually don’t go for foody scents, but this is different. 

I am hooked. Laura Mercier Crème de Pistache Honey Bath & Soufflé Body Crème have taken permanent residence on my bathroom shelf. I think the Fig one will be next!





I found the best neutral blush that goes with everything: NARS Douceur. It’s a new and limited edition colour. I would describe NARS Douceur as a neutral pink with brown undertones.

NARS Douceur is a very light and subtle blush. It’s not very pigmented and is very sheer. NARS Douceur is so smooth when applied to the cheeks. You can layer it to get a very natural healthy glow, or leave it quite subtle.

NARS Douceur is a matte-but it’s not a flat matte. Like all NARS blushes it wears well all day.

The subtle dusty rose colour is a perfect blush for Fall when paired with smokey eyes. Because it’s so neutral you can wear this with a warm eye or a cool eye look. I think that NARS Douceur is better for paler skin tones-although I think you can build to get a very nice subtle glow if you are darker toned.

If you are need of a really good neutral blush I highly recommend swatching this at Sephora.

I had to have this. Why?

1. I love most of Josie Maran’s products.

2. I love Argan Oil.

3. I love lip balms.

4. You can’t live without a good lip balm in Canada. Believe me- Canadian lips take quite a beating in this weather!

Josie Maran Argan Lip Treatment is a  great and different kind of lip balm. It’s a treatment lip balm that contains Argan Oil to repair and replenish and plant squalene that rehydrates, seals in the moisture, and fills in tiny lines. Josie Maran Argan Lip Treatment is made without parabens, sulfates, petrochemicals-anything that’s bad for you is just not in this little jar. It does have a natural green apple smell to it.

Why this is so different is that there’s no petrolatum in Josie Maran Argan Lip Treatment.  It’s almost buttery in texture. As soon as you put Josie Maran Argan Lip Treatment on your lips it instantly melts into them to rehydrate and soften. It leaves an oil on your lips that slowly keeps melting into your lips. You can’t put your lipstick on right away after using Josie Maran Argan Lip Treatment. I suggest you wait as long as you can and then blot the oil left on your lips off with a tissue. This lip balm is a good one to use throughout the day to keep your lips hydrated. I can still feel Josie Maran Argan Lip Treatment on my lips after 30 minutes before it’s gone right into my lips, but the softness it leaves behind lasts a few hours. I do have to say my lips are not as dry feeling since I’ve started using it  and feel smoother.

Josie Maran Argan Lip Treatment is going to be my lip saviour this winter in Canada!

I always support MAC’s Viva Glam Campaigns. It’s such a good cause. What other company would give 100% of the purchase price to help men, women and children living with HIV/AIDS ?

     Viva Glam Gaga Lipglass and Viva Glam Cyndi Lipglass are pretty opaque which I love. The colours are true and vibrant.  Gaga Lipglass matches the Lipstick to a tee, but Cyndi Lipglass has a touch more coral in it than the Viva Glam lipstick does. Viva Glam Gaga Lipglass is a gorgeous bubblegum pink.

You can find Viva Glam Gaga Lipglass and Viva Glam Cyndi Lipglass at your local MAC counter for a limited time.
