NARS Pure Matte Lipstick – Volga

I actually bought this online because I wanted a fall/winter lip colour rather than wearing bright red all the time. I was actually impressed with this the first time I wore it, it lasted a long time and the colour is great. It does appear darker then it does online and the only problem I had with it was that if you have dry lips it tends to show that they’re dry. It doesn’t really provide that moisture for your lips. You can get this at Sephora for $35.00.

Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm

I’ve written about the Clinique liquid makeup remover of this product but I wanted to try something different. This cleansing balm is the weirdest, most awesome thing I’ve bought for removing makeup. It looks oily but it’s not, it’s a solid until you rub it on your eyes/face then you just rinse off. It get waterproof makeup off and you won’t have black under eyes in the morning! It actually works and lasts longer then regular makeup removers.  I got this at Sephora for $38.00 but you can also get it at Sears and the Bay.

Aveda Smooth Infusion Style Prep

Now that I got to Aveda Institute I know a lot more about the products that I loved before, I also have a lot of Aveda products now so they might be on here a lot more. Aveda Smooth Infusion Style Prep creates a smooth surface and helps fight against humidity. I know that doesn’t help in the winter but the smooth surface part is great. I flat iron my hair almost every day so putting some product in helps. You can only get this at Aveda stores/salons for $34.00.

Aveda Hand Relief Moisturizing Creme – Shampure

Once again I went with Aveda because I love the smell of this hand creme. It actually works since going their my hands are dry and I use this all the time. It doesn’t just have to be your hands I use it only my arms as well! They come in different scents which some I don’t personally like but the Shampure smell is good, it’s the scent you smell when you walk by Aveda stores/salons. You can only get this at Aveda stores/salons for $36.00.

Ikea EKTORP Corner Sofa

My boyfriend and I needed a couch so we went on a mission and found this at Ikea! It’s actually a pretty good couch, a good size and it’s comfortable. We got it for $1149.00.

Bethany Uggs

I needed winter boots that I could wear when it wasn’t a snow storm but that are also warm so my mum got me an early Christmas present. They’re cute, and warm but not waterproof because they’re Uggs. Now I don’t normally like Uggs because they’re ugly in my opinion but this don’t look like your regular Uggs. These are from Little Burgundy for $200.00.

 

Thanks for reading,

Maeg.
