Who else loves fall shades? I love the collections that come out this time of year – they warm up the face and help you to transition seamlessly into winter. One of my favourite launches every year always comes from Dior and this year is no exception; they’ve played with the metallic trend in a perfect way. Today I’m chatting about the Dior Metallics Fall 2017 5 Couleurs palettes – Read on for pics of the palettes and swatches of both.

Both palettes have a nice combination of matte shades and gorgeous metallic, shimmery hues which work really well together. I love the punch that the shimmer packs and these can be used with other palettes as well to up the glam factor. They have a gorgeous effect, and a ton of pigment. I find they work really well with the Metalizer Eyes & Lips shades as well – I actually like to start off by using one of these as a primer to really bring out the full metallic look.

The Hypnotize palette has a warmer feel to it with chocolate tones and gold hues while the Magnetize palette is perfect for those who prefer a bit more drama; cooler shadows in charcoals and silver shades make this one a real showstopper. I really like how all of the shades work together & the deeper shades in both are gorgeous. The only thing that didn’t really work for me is the top right shades in both; they lacked pigment and shimmer to really make up for this.

Another day, another lipstick. And I’m not even close to being done yet. Today we’re sticking to drugstore (and affordable) lippies with the new NYX Pin-Up Pout Lipsticks. Available in 24 shades and ringing it at $10 CAD each, these are a fantastic option for adding some new colours to your repertoire for the fall.

I have all but 2 of the shades and couldn’t wait to dive in and swatch them for you so you can find your next pick!

These lipsticks are throwing it back to the OG lipsticks, going vintage and focusing on a creamy feel and bold colour payoff. These lipsticks dry to a velvety, almost matte finish that feels surprisingly light on the lips. I clock wear time at about 4-5 hours before you will need to reapply, and you will experience some transfer with these.

 

If you’re looking for colour, the NYX Pin-Up Pout Lipsticks are definitely what you’re going to want to get your hands on this season. The payoff is incredible, with extremely bold, opaque colour. Be careful with application, because with such strong colour you’re going to want to be really precise. I would suggest starting with a liner for perfect full coverage. Anyways, the pigmentation on these is pretty incredible, and with 24 different shades to choose from I have no doubt you’ll be able to find something to suit most of your needs. There are quite a few nude and deep shades, as well as a few classic reds and pinks to round the selection off. Also, fair warning, some of the deeper shades – heck, most of the shades – do have a bit of a stain to them.

And now… On to the swatches, because I know that’s what you’re really here for.

Hey guys! I made another video, another first – here are my August favourites. I definitely stuck to a bit of a skincare theme last month and was really focused on repairing and trying to keep my skin healthy with everything that goes on during the summer (hint: there’s a lot). Late nights and lots of activities really take their toll on the skin, so I’ve been focused on products that help to perk my skin up and give it a bit more life.
