Top 5 Luxe Favorites - Collaboration w/ @BlaireBeauty


Today, I'm beyond excited to share with you my collaboration with the gorgeous Lauren, from BlaireBeauty.com!

I've known Lauren for the past few years and she is one of the kindest people I've met and has always shared a common passion for all things beauty. We've decided to join forces and create a Top 5 favorite products line-up. 
Lauren is sharing her favorite Top 5 Drugstore beauty buys and I've decided to focus on my Top 5 High end and luxe buys. 

Be sure to check her out on Instagram @BlaireBeauty and her blog www.BlaireBeauty.com for her perfect suggestions on what to buy at the drugstore.

I've been in love with my Lancome blush in "Aplum"for quite some time now. You never think blush is that special of a product but since I've picked this up, its been the perfect finishing touch for all my makeup looks. It's my perfect pink-violet blush that suits my fair skin so well. Lancome is very well known for the longevity of their products and I never have to worry about this colour fading throughout the day!

I don't think I can tell you how perfect this highlight is! Look at this beauty!
With the highlighting market currently going crazy, I have been testing other popular ones but I always go back to MAC's "Soft and Gentle". It's a unique blend of warm and cool tones to give a sublime gleam to the high points of the face. I've even used this shade as an eye shadow and brow highlight! I recommend this one to anyone looking to invest in a staple, does-it-all highlighter.

All about the Eyes
As you can tell from the photo, this palette has been very well loved! I cannot get enough of this new love in my life! LOL!
I know that might sound a bit dramatic but I'm beyond happy that I decided to invest in this palette. The shades range from matte to metallic and blend out seamlessly on the eyes. 
If you're looking for a full review with swatches, I have a detailed post here.

As a finishing touch to the eyes, my favorite mascara is hands-down the Perversion mascara from Urban Decay. I love a classic, large brush wand and this formula is full-on, deep black colour that adds the right amount of thickness, length and shape. It lasts all day long with no flakes and removes like a breeze with any cleanser.

Bold Lips
My pick for this category could be a bit controversial for some. Lately, when it comes to my preference of lipstick its been anything in liquid form. However you view the famous Kardashian/Jenner family, you have to admit that when it comes to beauty they know how to do glam really well. 
I love the matte finish and the all-day long wear, of younger sister Kylie's liquid lipsticks. I also had to include the lip liners because they are so creamy and literally glide over the lip line with rich, pigmented colour. I feel they are absolutely worth the cost and the shipping to Canada!

I hope that you've enjoyed looking through my top drawer products and hope that you visit and check out Lauren's top 5 picks as well!
