Blushing beauty? The new NYX Sweet Cheeks Blush Palette ($29.99 CAD) is going to need to find a way into your makeup bag. The carefully curated palette contains a mix of 8 rosy-hued blushes for a combination that will look great on any skin tone.

The blush shades available in the palette were chosen to help brighten the complexion, while being completely customizable; it’s easy to combine shades on the skin to find the perfect hue to complement your look. The two shades on the top left have a bit of shimmer to them, making them perfect for adding a little highlight and glow. Aside from the first two shades, the remaining are nice and matte, with a velvety texture that glides onto the skin and blends easily.

 

In terms of pigmentation, all 8 blushes have great colour payoff – they show up on the skin exactly as they appear in the pan, building up nicely with continued application. Start off slow with a lighter shade and try building up the colour with one of the deeper tones until you find your perfect flush.

Shopping for beauty products isn’t always easy – between all of the different options and brands, there’s always a bit of a challenge when it comes to finding that one perfect product (or completely updating your routine). Rexall has decided to make things a little bit easier with the relaunch of their beauty department; trust me, beauty lovers will be very happy with this!

Oodles of theBalm lippies!

The new Inspired Beauty department was designed to create the best beauty shopping experience possible from every aspect – with the new layout and clean black & white background, all of their brands are showcased in a way that makes finding the perfect products for your needs a snap! I had a chance to check it out (located in the Rexall at 901 Eglinton Ave W, Toronto), and loved how easy it was to see what was available. Everything is organized into easy to follow sections, with cosmetics, haircare, skincare, body, nails and tools (along with a new fragrance section) all covered! Of course, Rexall cosmeticians are always available to help out if you need a hand finding exactly what you need.

Just doing a little shopping

Oh, and did I mention the brands yet? Because this is really the best part.

First of all, Rexall has introduced Milani and e.l.f., which is so exciting! I love both of these brands; they have great prices and products. They’ll be joining other amazing brands (and some of my faves!), like theBalm, Real Techniques, Cargo, KIT (a Rexall exclusive line) and NYX, which has also received an expanded space. Talk about beauty heaven, no?

Now that September’s rolled around and we’re closing the door on summer, it’s time to trade in your beach-ready beauty products for something a little more fall-worthy. Update your makeup bag without breaking the bank and catch up on the trends with these picks.

Fall means a return to more dramatic beauty looks, which also means it’s time to start working on your liner game. The Maybelline New York Eye Studio Master Precise Curvy Liquid Liner ($12) has a design that was created to make getting that perfect wing easier than ever, with a handle that fits into the contour of your palm and a pointed tip for accurate application.

Now that the days of bronze are slipping away, it’s time to try some deeper shades. The NYX Cosmic Metals Lip Creams ($10) are perfect for a season where jewel tones are in abundance. These highly pigmented lippies are smooth, shimmery and definitely pack a punch. Throw one of them on for your next girl’s night out and bask in the compliments.

Transition to a more matte look with e.l.f. Beautifully Bare Finishing Powder ($6). Fall is all about fresh, healthy skin, and this tinted powder will have your skin looking flawless with light coverage that sets makeup so it stays fresh throughout the work day. Keep one in your purse for quick touch-ups on the go and to zap any shine that pops up during the day.

Swap your summer gloss for a fall lipstick with ColourPop Ultra Satin Lip ($6). A taupe or berry satin lip is just what September is calling for, and these long-wearing lipsticks are perfect for transitioning into sweater weather. As a bonus, the low price tag means you can stock up on a few for a new fall lip wardrobe.

Bold eyes and long, fluttery lashes are on deck, which makes Quo Holy Grail Mascara ($12) a-must have. This mascara makes large promises with its name and after getting buildable bat-worthy lashes, we’re converts for this drugstore winner.

Things are getting a little intergalactic with the launch of the NYX Cosmic Metals Lip Creams. The colourful, shimmering lippies are perfect for summer, especially with the festival circuit still going strong, and are perfect for someone who wants to take their look to the next level.

If you’re in the mood for a seriously bold pop of colour, look no further. These creamy, smooth lip creams are incredibly pigmented – what you see in the tube is exactly what you’re going to get on your lips – and the formula feels really comfortable and hydrating, making them perfect for long-term wear.

The narrow, doe-foot applicator makes precise application easy – with pigmented colours like this, you want them to go on perfectly, and the narrow tip allows for you to hit all the right lines without looking like a hot mess. I find them to be pretty long-lasting, though they do transfer, so you’ll be set for at least a few hours once you’ve put them on. Which NYX Cosmic Metals shades have caught your eye?
