Everlane Suede Heel Boot

Everlane Suede Heel Boot Taupe Gray Chestnut Review Photos Comparison
I'm back with a review of Everlane's Suede Heel Boot ($225) today, and I suggest that you run, not walk, to their website to treat yo'self to one rn. The Suede Heel Boot is, as its name so subtly hints, a suede version of Everlane's Heel Boot, which has by far been the MVP of my fall/winter shoe collection this year...

Hourglass Girl Lip Stylo

hourglass girl lip stylo lip swatches review photos
 The Hourglass Girl Lip Stylo ($32 for 0.09 oz.), is by far my favourite release of the Spring season thus far. Twenty shades of almost-but-not-quite opaque, creamy, pigmented, lip-hugging goodness with a super pretty, satin finish that gives the lips some life and dimension without detracting from wear time. I love that each shade bears the name of a role, attribute or characteristic that women can possess - it's inspirational and adds some thoughtfulness to the process of putting lipstick on in the morning.

Lancome Le Metallique Lip Lacquers

lancome le metallique metallic lip lacquer swatches review photos on lips
 Lancome recently dropped a new line of lip products, and since they were touted as being "metallic", I had to check 'em out. The Le Metallique Lip Lacquers ($22 for 0.10 oz.) are billed as "a full-coverage, metallic lip lacquer with a rich, creamy texture that hugs your lips like a gloss and leaves them feeling hydrated." I went ahead and ordered the whole range to swatch for y'all, so keep on reading for the full review and plenty of picshurs...

Everlane Silk Split-Neck & Relaxed Silk Collarless Shirts

Everlane Silk Split-Neck Shirt and Relaxed Silk Collarless Shirt Photos Review
 Everlane recently added a few new styles of silk to its repertoire of blouses, and I've got a couple of them to share with you today! The Silk Split-Neck Shirt ($88) is a slightly sexy, day-to-night kind of blouse, while the Relaxed Silk Collarless Shirt ($88) is more of a casual, pared-down, every-day basic. Both certainly have a place in any wardrobe, but if I had to pick one of the two, I'd go with the Silk Split-Neck...I love me a lil edge ;)

Make Up For Ever Star Lit Liquids & Powders

Make Up For Ever Star Lit Liquid Powder Swatches
 I've been on a bit of a shimmer kick for basically my whole life, and when I saw the press release for Make Up For Ever's Star Lit Liquids ($24 for 0.15 oz.)  and Powders ($21 for 0.09 oz.), I knew I needed to get my hands on 'em. The Star Lit Liquids and Powders are multi-purpose products that can be used on eyes, cheeks and lips (except for a couple shades of the powders, which aren't safe for use on lips). They are meant to impart a sparkling, shimmering, glittering effect wherever you choose to use them, and they certainly do exactly that!

Chanel Le Rouge Crayon de Couleur & Coco Code Harmonie de Blush, Spring 2017

chanel le rouge crayon de couleur coco code harmonie de blush swatches review
 Chanel's new Le Rouge Crayon de Couleur ($37) for Spring 2017 just hit counters, so I stopped by my local Saks to check them out. The product is a chubby-stick style, twist-up lipstick in pencil form that offers semi-transparent to opaque coverage (depending on the shade) with a luminous, glossy finish that is hydrating and pretty long-lasting (for a glossy finish lip product).

Everlane foldover crossbody foldover pouch mini zip wallet and pouch photos review
Over the holidays, Everlane released an extensive line of super cute, super functional small leather goods, including a crossbody, a clutch, a pouch and an assortment of wallets and cardholders. Each item comes in an array of essential, basic-yet-not-basic colours ranging from black and navy to persimmon and natural. There are also limited offerings of certain items in a soft neutral pink colour as well as in a shiny gold.

Everlane Ribbed Wool-Cashmere Crew & Oversized Cardigan

Everlane Ribbed Wool-Cashmere Crew & Oversized Cardigan
 My last purchases from Everlane's Wool-Cashmere collection were the Ribbed Wool-Cashmere Crew ($98) and Oversized Cardigan ($140). The Crew is an every-day, wear-outside piece for me, while the Oversized Cardigan is more of a lounge-around piece, although sometimes I wear it out as well.

NARSissist Unfiltered I & II Cheek Palettes

NARSissist Unfiltered I & II Cheek Palettes Photos Swatches Review
 NARS recently launched its NARSissist Unfiltered cheek palettes ($59 for 0.12 oz. x 6) for Spring, and I immediately knew I had to have both of them. My holy grail cheek palettes are By Terry's Sun Designer palettes from this past summer, and in my review, I discussed the reasons why they are so special. To quickly recap: 1) high quality, luxe packaging 2) high quantity of product included, both on a oz./g level and on a number-of-blushes level 3) diverse colour selection 4) diverse finish selection (mattes & shimmers) 5) multiple products included (i.e. blush + highlight or blush + contour) 6) super high quality product (pigmentation, texture, blendability). All of those same qualities that I loved in the By Terry palettes also apply to the NARSissist Unfiltered I & II palettes, which earns them both a spot right up there with my By Terry Sun Designers as my favourite cheek palettes!

Everlane Wool-Cashmere Square Crew | Review + Photos

Everlane Wool-Cashmere Square Crew Long Turtleneck photos review
Coat (c/o Everlane, review here) // Turtleneck (sold out, similar here, here, here) // Pants // Crossbody Bag (c/o Linjer, review here
 Happy New Year lovelies! I'm back today with a couple more of Everlane's Wool-Cashmere collection sweaters: the Square Crew ($98) and Long Turtleneck (sold out). Even though the latter is currently sold out, I'm still including it in the post because they brought it back in a limited run of Ivory for Christmas, which means it was really popular and makes me think they could bring it back a third time! *Update as of 11/30/2017: The Square Crew this year is the same one that debuted last year, so if you're looking for a review and photos on a non-model person, here ya go! :)*
