And so, it begins!

It’s starting to snow here and there around #YEG and all over Alberta frankly, and YES I say…bring it on…I’m so glad it’s getting cold again. I love winter. I know, I’m a freak. And I love being one as you know… šŸ˜›

Since I AM the self-declared SNOW QUEEN of the Beauty Blogging World…just decided right there and then now-if anybody wants to fight me for it lemme know-but beware I’m NOT tiny hahaha and HAVE punched a dude before-not kidding-Tracy has LOADS of stories about the past if you’d like to hear some šŸ˜‰
What was I talking about???!! Oh right….Snow Queen needs Snow Ballz, right? Ā I ordered mine from The Bay in case you were wondering. I give up on getting LE Guerlain from the counters-they get like three and unless you’re there at the right time, you’re SOL. What the HECK are these even called, I can’t remember…Perles de Neige? I think that’s it? SNOW BALLZ is better.

DANG so pretty….although the stars confuse people and me…like Guerlain dudes…have you even SEEN REAL SNOWFLAKES???!! They’reĀ not star shaped? NOPE. I haven’t tried them yet but I know I will likey. I only have one other Gueralin Meteorites in my collection, the Pucci Ballz and use them all the time. So these won’t go to waste.

Snow and colder weather means it’s soup time again!

Pumpkin soup! I just cut up my pumpkin, some turnips and onions and threw them in a pan and roasted them in the oven until soft. Dumped them in a pot with some veggie broth and pureed it, added some salt and pepper and YUMMMM….. SOUP. My dad was the soup king. He could make the most delicious soup from whatever was in his fridge. I hope I make him proud. Ā šŸ˜€

Speaking of pumpkins, Halloween was cute. I love handing out candy to kids. One kid was dressed as SPOCK and yelled SPOCK OR TREAT…that kid got TWO HANDFULS of candy yes he did. #favekidever
But whilst sitting in my front room(because it’s closer to the door and just easier when handing out candy) on my computer, checking for free Halloween items from the Money Tree on Neopets(only time I go back on that site hahahaha and it makes Marky so jealous because she can’t remember her password BUT I CAN HAHAHA), I noticed these two Dior Glosses sitting there!

MAN. I forgot about these two glosses from the Dior Holiday 2015 Collection-what’s it called again? State of Gold? Something like that, right? #badbeautyblogger Anyways, here’s some swatches of #613 Cygne Noir and #322 Sparkle for anyone who cares. No lips sorry….too lazy!

Dior State Of Gold Glosses: #322 Sparkle, #613 Cygne Noir

Dior Glosses are really nice! I like them a lot. I’m just not a gloss person, so I’ll be passing them along to a good friend that LOVES them a lot for Christmas. #youknowwhoyouare

I got a new lipstick! HAHAHA like that’s so surprising!

It’s Bite Beauty Mauvember Luminous Creme Lipstick which is LE. All of the proceeds from each sale goes directly to The Movember Foundationā€”the leading global organization committed to changing the face of menā€™s health. It’s a great cause, and I had to support it. I love beauty that benefits. Especially when it’s 100% of the proceeds.

It’s such a perfectly beautiful and wearable purple lipstick. Get one.

I really like this chocolate milk. And the glass bottle too.

I’m finally getting excited for this movie, because Eddie Redmayne…DANG DUDE.

And finally, the Sephora VIB Sale is about to start and everyone and their dog is posting their WHAT’S ON MY WISH LIST.

And, then there’s ME:

Bite Beauty Mauvember Luminous Creme Lipstick.jpg

Yeah, I couldn’t even get in to the party that was at my Sephora last night.Ā Thing is my Sephora recently moved to a bigger spot in the mall and it’s HUGE…so either there’s a TON of VIB ROUGES in Edmonton, or they’re being STUPID. I’m going with STUPID. I’m just so DONE and DONE with Sephora. If you’ve noticed I don’t even get any swag from them anymore like I used to…you get ignored when you vocally criticize a company a lot like I do…cowards I say. Too scared of little bitty me? GOOD. YOU SHOULD BE MOTHER EFFERS.

Honestly, I don’t actually see the point of Sephora all that much lately? And I think a lot of companies know how dissatisfied Canadians are with Sephora, because they’re starting to give us our OWN online shopping stores. Urban Decay now has a site for Canadians to shop online and they have great perks all the time that are FREE you guys. Ā Caudalie too has a Canadian site and has sales all the time and freebies as well.

So, I don’t think I’m going to order anything during this Sephora Sale, unless my hubby wants some kind of fragrance. Otherwise, I don’t really wear a ton of makeup anymore and there’s pretty much nothing from the holiday offerings I want, so…I think I’ll be skipping it this year. I KNOW. Ā If it wasn’t for BITE Beauty and a few other brands only offered at Sephora, I’d probably really not shop there at all anymore. It will be less and less for sure as time goes by. So long JERKS I say.

How you guys DOIN’?? I hope well!

What’s happening with you? Is it getting colder where you are too? What’s been giving you joy lately? For me it’s always the sky… every time I look at it I see something incredible lately. Like this portal to anotherĀ universe…maybe makeup and skincare is FREE THERE hahahaha! #wishes

Oh, Bite Beauty, I love you. And I love thisĀ Bite Beauty Best Bite Set for Holiday 2013.

Bite Beauty Best Bite Set

Bite Beauty Best Bite Set($28 CDN) is a collection of four mini Bite High Pigment Pencils in a purse-sized tin compact.

Bite Beauty Best Bite Set

One full sized Bite Beauty Pencil costs $28 so getting four minis is a great little deal if you want to try the brand! And I say you MUST try the brand. Bite Beauty makes amazing lipsticks. I dare say they’re my favourite formula. Made with Resveratrol, they provide antioxidant benefits, as well being incredibly moisturizing because of the shea butter and organic oils.

My lip swatches of each shade of the shades in the Bite Beauty Best Ā Bite SetĀ turned out kind of interesting. I was going to chuck them, but they’re kind of neat because half of my lips are in the sun, while the other half are in cooler light. You kind of can see how the lipsticks look in both kinds of light at the same time!

Bite Beauty High Pigment Pencil in Madeira is a nude. It’s very nude! I love a good nude lipstick and this one is pretty pale. If you have trouble wearing nudes, get a good lip pencil like Dior Linen to wear underneath and you’ll find it much easier.

Bite Beauty High Pigment Pencil in Rhubarb is a warm rose. It’s a great every day shade that’s easy to wear.

Bite Beauty High Pigment Pencil in Quince is a bright fuchsia pink. This one is really bright and so much fun to wear! I had to adjust the warmth a bit on this pic, and even still it’s not quite right. It’s a bit brighter and even pinker in person.

Bite Beauty High Pigment Pencil in Cranberry is a bright berry red that’s oh so holiday appropriate.

These miniĀ Bite Beauty High Pigment Pencils in the Bite Beauty Best Bite SetĀ are fantastic. Pigmented, soft, creamy, moisturizing, last really well-I can’t find one thing wrong with them to be honest! Oh, and did I mention that these minis are twist-ups just like the full-sized versions? No need to sharpen them! Kind of amazing!

Bite Beauty Best Best Bite Set is another Sephora Holiday 2013 set is a MUST have and I highly recommend it!

Have you tried a Bite Beauty Lipstick yet? Who makes your favourite lipstick formula?

The Violet Lipstick Quest has begun! I want them ALL hahaha! Which actually isn’t a bad thing really, because truth be told, there AIN’T a lot of violet lipsticks around even though they seem to be popping up here and there in various brands.

I figured the first brand I should check is one of my absolute favourite lipstick brands, Bite Beauty. And YUP! They have violet! MeetĀ Bite Beauty High Pigment Matte Pencil in Lavender Violet($28 CDN):

Bite Beauty High Pigment Matte Pencil in Lavender Violet

Bite Beauty High Pigment Matte Pencil in Lavender Violet is amazing. I’ve never actually tried the Bite Beauty Matte Pencils, but WOWZA. SO GOOD! This goes on rather glossy at first, but then as it dries down it becomes more matte. This is a modern matte look-not quite so dry looking, but Ā not quite completely matte. Bite Beauty lips productsĀ contain super antioxidant resveratrol, which fights free radicals with potent long-term antiaging benefits. Each lip pencil contains the amount of resveratrol found in five glasses of red wine. YES. Plus they are free fromĀ synthetics, polybutenes, and petroleum byproducts and made exclusively with lip nurturing food-grade ingredients that are healthy enough to eat. I find comfort in the fact that if need be and I’m REALLY hungry, I can chow down on the Bite Beauty Lipsticks in my purse. NOTE: I always carry at least two of them with me at all times because you just never know….

So comfortable to wear! And it lasts really well too! I get about 4 hours of wear, with no travelling at all.

wearing Bite Beauty High Pigment Matte Pencil in Lavender Violet

Swear to God, I think Bite Beauty High Pigment Matte Pencil in Lavender Violet makes me look 10 years younger(well, that and also some Neostrata skincare I have been loving and seeing some REAL RESULTS from lately):

How much do I love Bite Beauty High Pigment Matte Pencil in Lavender Violet? LOTS. You need to try one of these, be it this violet one or any of the other 20 shades available. JUST DO IT. You won’t be sorry!

You can find Bite Beauty and all of their lip products at Sephora!!

Happy Friday everyone!! I’m so glad it’s Friday! How about you?
