Everlane Modern Babo | Review & Photos

Everlane's Modern Babo shoe is the ultimate slip-on flat, with a fold down back wall that makes for quick and easy on and off and which folds up for a more polished and formal look. They are available in Black and Sand - I got them in Black in my typical size (6).

NARSissist L'Amour Toujours L'Amour Eyeshadow Palette

The NARSissist L'Amour Toujours L'Amour Eyeshadow Palette ($59, LE | Sephora, Nordstrom) has been out for a little while, and a lot of bloggers have featured it. However, I felt the need to call your attention to it because, in my opinion, it's a cut above other similar NARS eye palette releases in terms of quality and colour selection.

Anastasia Glow Kits | Swatches & Review

 While checking out Anastasia's new range of eyeshadows in Sephora, I couldn't help but swatch the Glow Kits out of interest, as I've seen a lot of swatches floating around the internet. The Glow Kits are $40 for 4 x 0.26 oz of product, so basically 4 full size Chanel blush pans worth of product, which is a great value. There are 3 combinations - all three are available at Ulta, and That Glow and Sun Dipped are available at Sephora.

Anastasia Eyeshadow Singles | Swatches & Review

Omg, you guyz, the new Anastasia Beverly Hills Eyeshadow ($12 for 0.06 oz.) range is sickkkkk. I was in Sephora and had an attack of indecision because I wanted over half of the 52 shades that I swatched :/ I can't even deal with looking at the rest of the 85 shades in the range because it will just make my indecision worse! I'm hoping I'll be able to cull my selections down to a reasonable 8-12 picks - until then, I'm just going to be staring at these swatches trying to decide.

Lady Dior

K, so let's talk bags people. Handbags, obviously, which are the best kind of bags. Specifically, designer handbags, which are the best kind of handbags. Even more specifically, a drop-dead-gorgeous, navy blue, quilted Dior handbag. It's so beautiful I want to cry. Anyway, getting back on track, I unfortunately do not own this beauty. However, I was able to borrow it for this shoot. From whom, you ask? From Closlet. What's Closlet, you ask? It's a peer-to-peer closet rental startup that's launching soon and is based in Manhattan!

Everlane Linen Deep V Sweater

 I only picked up one item from Everlane's summer Linen collection, although I've also been eyeing the basic Relaxed Linen Shirt ($65) in White, which is currently basically sold out. But anyway, the item I picked up is the Linen Deep V Sweater ($78) in Heather Gray, which looked like a perfect, mid-weight, summer sweater for those cool and crisp transitional days and mornings/evenings in the northeast.

Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Lipstick

 Bite Beauty recently debuted a new range of lipsticks - the Amuse Bouche line-up features a truly extensive array of shades which have been formulated to be highly moisturizing with intense, long-lasting colour. My favourite aspect of Bite Beauty's Amuse Bouche range ($26 for 0.15 oz.) is that it has been formulated to be completely edible! Before you shake your head in confusion - Bite Beauty isn't saying you should chomp on a lipstick for your afternoon snack. Their point is simply that they have used ingredients which are naturally derived and completely safe to ingest - 12 edible oils and triple milled pigments have resulted in an outstanding formula which truly is incredibly moisturizing and long-lasting. The fantastic price point and generous amount of product mean that these tick all my boxes on the checklist of a "perfect lipstick". I've swatched all the permanent shades in the range below! :)

Everlane Twill Crop Pant | Review

 Next up for review from my latest Everlane haul is the Twill Crop Pant in Black from Everlane's American Summer collection, although for some reason, it looks almost like a navy blue in my photos...not sure why.

Everlane Slide Sandals & Cotton Poplin Pleated Skirt| Review

Everlane's had a slew of new releases lately, so I thought I'd share a few of my favourites with you! Now that summer is here, I find myself in need of a few casual basics to round out my wardrobe, and the Cotton Poplin Pleated Skirt in Navy and the Slide Sandal in Sand turned out to be just what I was looking for.

Becca Shimmering Skin Perfectors, Swatches & Review

For today's feature, I've swatched the Becca Shimmering Skin Perfectors, minus the most recent limited edition items from the Becca x Jaclyn Hill Champagne collection. I feel like the Shimmering Skin Perfectors were low flyers for quite awhile until Lisa Eldridge began raving about the liquid version in Pearl on her channel. From that point until now, the Shimmering Skin Perfectors have reached somewhat of a cult / holy grail status for many people, and they have quite a large following! Given that we're in the heyday of the strobing / highlighting obsession, if you're not already familiar with these products, now is the perfect time to check them out and see if one of them is right for you :D They all come in pressed powder, poured cream and spreadable liquid-gel versions. Each can be used to different effect, and Christine of Temptalia's explanation of the differences here is a great resource if you haven't tried them for yourself.
