Lush Makeup you say?

6/26/12

I'm not sure if I heard right, LUSH is making make-up?? Well it's about time! 
I'd love to see how they make-up wears and lasts, so I'm super excited about this launch. 
I just heard about it on Temptalia's site so here's a link to her post and you guys can get up to speed with it as well!

The Woes of Neglect

6/25/12

Oh yes, I'm overdramatic. But today, today I have a right to be a Drama Queen becauseeeee *drum roll*

I submitted my Master of Science thesis!!! 
So I'm FREE. 
FREE
It hasn't set in yet.
But now I'll have more time to post :) Which is great news for you avid readers! 

And nowwww to show you a long overdue MAC Hey Sailor Haul! 


How cute is the packaging? I couldn't resist. I almost went back to get more cause of the packaging.

So adorable!! 


From left to right: MAC Barefoot, MAC Sail La Vie (lipstick), MAC Feelin' Fresh.

Same order as above.

I have yet to do swatches of these babies, except for those I did in store. These were by far my favourite things in the collection. The green, for me, is especially NOT dupable. I find it so difficult to find a good green shadow these days!
I will posting swatches soon, along with the look the MAC artist did on me using these very colours I wanted to purchase :)
Coming up soooon!!

Did you ladies get any new summer makeup?

Sephora's taking over Canada!!

6/8/12

 ...Or just the Montreal/Quebec area ;)
A new Sephora opened up in downtown Montreal on St. Catherine's Street on the Friday, 1st of June. Now I heard there was a private party for the opening Thursday night, which made me SO jealous, would've given aloooot to go to a private Sephora party!
 I got a chance, as a work break, to check out the Sephora store on Monday. There was no way I was going on opening day with, what I'm sure was, a crazy excited crowd.

This is the store front from inside the mall. Of course they have another store front on the street. 

At first, this display really confused me (this is only part of the display) but as I went up to it I discovered it was a perfume display, for men. (Okay so cologne is more appropriate here hehe). So here you have Ipads and ten different scents to chose from. It asks you questions like what base scents you do prefer and when you press one of the ten button a puff of perfume comes out of the corresponding scentsample. What a great way for guys to figure out a cologne they like! 

 
This is the Makeup Forever Section, there is an entire section for MUFE. Kind of exciting really, they seem to have a lot more options than the Bay! 

Just another snapshot of the store, you can see part of the Stila display as well as some hair care products. 

The store seems really great, its big and has a lot of different brands and different options. A counter to help Men decide which colognes they like. There are touch screens along the store instructing consumers how to use new products as well as all the variety from hair care, skin care and make up brands. I really like that Sephora has brought in a few brands from Europe like Ciate and Nails Inc. 
I really enjoyed browsing around and can't wait to shop there! I can see myself becoming a regular customer. And I really hope the store continues to be fashion and makeup forward. 

What do you think of Sephora? Do you have any local Sephora stores?
