Marc Jacobs - Petra

Marc Jacobs - Petra
There is nothing quite as exciting as waiting and waiting and fiiinally getting a package when you've ordered something online.

In order to take advantage of some VIB sample rewards, I placed a Sephora order online (I usually just go in store, but they were completely out!). Yesterday, it finally arrived! I literally tear into that box like a little kid on Christmas. I just didn't want to wait one second longer!

One of the purchases I made is a product I've been eyeing for ages - Marc Jacobs Enamored Nail Polish in Petra (22$).

Formula X - Gemini

Formula X - Gemini
I've always been a bit skeptical about a store's home brand. Despite being a major OPI lover 4eva, I was never a fan of the Sephora by OPI nail polish line sold at Sephora stores everywhere. They had an immense colour selection and lovely little bottles, I even got one for christmas once and was fairly happy with it! For some reason or another though, they just simply never clicked with me. So, when Sephora announced the launch of their all new nail polish and nail care line - Formula X - I was intrigued! Preliminary reviews were raving about them and the line-up was full of finishes and hues that I could drool over.

OPI - Brisbane Bronze

Monday, 30 June 2014

OPI - Brisbane Bronze
Today's Nail of the Day is a permanent OPI colour which has been around for ages, although it's fairly new to me! I'm talking about Brisbane Bronze, a warm-toned red-flecked bronze metallic polish that it perfect for the summer and fall.

China Glaze - For Audrey

China Glaze - For Audrey
Another cult favourite dancing on the digits today - China Glaze For Audrey! This polish is the closest to a perfect Tiffany Blue that I've ever been able to find, and rightfully so with a name like For Audrey. (Although, as much as I adore Audrey Hepburn and however much I love Tiffany's, I've never been able to sit through Breakfast at Tiffany's in one go... anyone else have this problem?).

OPI - If You Moust You Moust

OPI - If You Moust You Moust
In my opinion, OPI does the best pink nailpolishes. Ever. Today, I'm wearing one of my favourite pinks for Spring and Summer - OPI If You Moust You Moust.

Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush - Dollface + Tipsy

Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush: Dollface + Tipsy
Hello, I'm Siobhan and I'm a Blush Addict... I should probably go to some sort of support group to curb my incessant need to keep buying blushes. I mean, I only have two cheeks! Today I have two of my newer additions to gush about - two cult favourites: Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blushes in the shades Tipsy and Dollface!

Essie - Ole Caliente

Essie - Ole Caliente
Today I'm rocking one of my favourite Essie polishes and one of my favourite nail colours for Summer! I originally tried this polish in a mini set from Essie's 2012 Navigate Her Spring Collection. I emptied that mini in a snap and scooped up a full size because I just can't be without it!

OPI - Can't Find My Czechbook
It's hard to go wrong with OPI, and this beautiful blue from their Euro Centrale 2013 Collection is the perfect blend of pastel and brights for the transition into summer.

Summer Scents | Top Perfumes for Summer

Summer Scents
 Scents have such a strong impact on human memory. Scents can make you happy or sad, they can bring you back to people you used to know or memories you once had. This is why I think it's so important to find scents you love and that express who you are to those around you. I've rounded up some of my favourite perfumes to wear when the weather starts to warm.

What's In My Make Up Bag?

Wednesday, 4 June 2014

Everyday Make Up Basics
Today, I decided to give everyone a glimpse into one of my most prized possessions - my everyday make up bag. While my eye liners, blushes, and lipsticks tend to get changed out fairly regularly, I do have a set of products that are always on hand. They're easy to grab when I want a fuss-free face or I need an overnight bag quickly. So today I present my everyday basics, the items I use frequently and always have on hand.

Bright Lips for Summer


Covergirl Lipperfection Lipcolor in Flame, Bite Beauty Matte Creme Lip Crayon in Satsuma, Rimmel Apocalips in Apocalyptic, Dior Addict Gloss in Exquise
I really love the look of a bright, bold lip. I think it exudes confidence and playfulness - plus the colours truly are amazing! I don't always feel entirely comfortable rocking the bright lip all year round but there is something about the summer heat that makes all things bright and colourful, fair play. Here are a handful of my favourite brights to grab when I'm feeling bold this summer.

OPI - I Just Can't Cope-Acabana

OPI - I Just Can't Cope-Acabana
As I said before in my "Live.Love.Carnaval" post, I fell in love with the OPI Brazil Collection the moment I saw it. OPI I Just Can't Cope-Acabana was one of the polishes I decided I had to have from the collection. It's a bright summer sunshine yellow creme, not too golden, not too pastel. Just pure, happy yellow.

Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment SPF 15

Tuesday, 3 June 2014

L-R: Fresh Sugar Original, Sugar Coral, Sugar Rose, Sugar Petal, Sugar Honey
I mentioned this holy grail lip product in my previous post about my favourite lip treatments but I don't think that all of the amazingness of this product could be contained in such a small mention - so I've decided to dedicate an entire post to the Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment SPF 15.

Favourite Lip Treatments + Balms


Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment, Dior Addict Lip Glow, Dior Creme de Roses
One of my must-have products year-round is Lip Balm. So basic and boring, I know. But if you've ever had the unfortunate experience of spending a day, especially a cold Canadian winter day, without your trusty lip treatment, you know how much of a difference it makes.

I'm the kind of girl who has a different chapstick in every pocket of every bag...as well as on my desks, at home and at school, and on the table next to my bed. I lose and repurchase these little things more than any other item in my life! Okay, maybe that's a bit of an exaggeration, but you get the point.

Essie - Watermelon

Monday, 2 June 2014

Essie - Watermelon
I hope everyone had a lovely weekend - I just got back from a weekend of sailing and sunning (a bit too much sun - my shoulders are quite crispy) and wanted a bright, summery nail colour to suit.

Essie Watermelon is an Essie classic - and I think there needs to be a bottle of it in every nail polish collection!

Essie - Too Taboo

Essie Neons 2014 - Too Taboo
The other day, I was running low on toothpaste and zipped off to the drugstore to get some. While I was there, I was having a casual browse through the cosmetics aisle (as us beauty lovers have want to do), and I spotted the new Essie Neons 2014 display. The gravitational pull was instant!

My Mini MAC Lipstick Collection | Review + Swatches

Wednesday, 28 May 2014

L-R: Spice It Up!, Peach Blossom, Costa Chic, Syrup, Chatterbox

The MAC lipstick counter was always a bit overwhelming to me - so many colours and finishes to choose from! The huge selection is one of the reasons I imagine MAC lipsticks have such a cult following in the makeup and beauty world.

I have and will always have a soft spot in my heart for OPI.
