Glittery obsessions - Touch in Sol

If you are like me, you may love all those glitter-y makeup looks all over Instagram and Youtube... BUT the attempt at removing all of those glitter eyeshadows is enough to scare you away. And hey... there are times when the glitter doesn't stay put and gets all over your face. And then it's just a hot mess and you look like a toddler who got lose with a glitter stick. 

So then along came an amazing Korean makeup brand - Touch in Sol. Some of you may have heard of them, some not. But trust me when I say they are your solution to no mess glitter application for those sexy glitter makeup looks. I received a sample of Touch in Sol's Metallist Liquid Foil and Glitter Eyeshadow Duo in my Sephora order and I was hooked. 

This eyeshadow duo basically comes with 2 applicators - one side for the liquid eyeshadow and the other for glitter to give you some extra bling. I've never felt the need to use both, as the liquid eyeshadow part on its own looks gorgeous. But for those days when you really want to shine - you can use the 2nd applicator over and achieve an even more incredible eye look.

Currently Touch in Sol offers 5 colours in their metallic eyeshadow collection: Talia (silver), Margaret (champagne), Eldora (gold), Adelio (burgundy) and Lottie (plum). 

Talia (silver)

Eldora (gold)

Lottie (plum)

Adelio (burgundy)

Margaret (champagne)

I'm currently lusting over Eldora which is the gold shade and Sephora is actually out of stock on Talia which is the silver colour. These are all gorgeous shades and are perfect for the holidays, not to mention great stocking stuffers. The quality and the amount of product you get are great as well.

So next time you want to try out a new brand, definitely get some Touch in Sol metallic eyeshadows in your life. You won't be disappointed!

Designer Spotlight : Anna-Karin Karlsson

So it's been a while since we did another designer spotlight, so why not sunglasses? I know, I know... it's snowing in most parts of North America now... or at least getting colder and the last thing you probably are thinking about are sunglasses. But hey, when that sun shines bright over snow... your retinas will thank me and not to mention, your style game will be way up there with a pair of Anna-Karin sunglasses on.

These babies are not for the faint of heart, they are so avant garde that I love them! Reminds me a bit of other designer sunglasses like Dolce & Gabbana.

So it wouldn't be a designer spotlight without some info on the designer themself. Anna-Karin Karlsson is a bit of a Jack of all trades to be honest. Not only is she also a lover of music and has been part of the UK underground music scene, but at 19 she started working and learning the trade of bespoke eyewear from one of the top opticians in London. That's an incredible achievement!

Her eyewear is definitely unique and can also be custom made to tailor the style and needs of her clients. She now has shops all around the world and many famous celebs rock her eyewear. She's been featured countless times on big name magazines such as Vogue, Elle and Harper's Bazaar so you know she's a pretty big deal!

In Fall of 2013, she was awarded the prestigious Fashion Award in Sweden called the Guldknappen. 

So now that you know the beauty and brains behind the operation, it's only fitting now that I show you her amazing sunglasses and eyeglasses. Share in the comments below which style you like and if you have any designers that you feel need some recognition and love, that is also great! 

Cool styles right? I'm really loving the second last one, reminds me a bit of Celine sunglasses but with an edge. Might have to save up and grab a pair... See you all in the next blog post!

Holiday makeup steals!

Who doesn't love the holidays? I mean shops are decorated all festive, gorgeous Christmas trees sparkling bright and not to mention sales...

And for makeup lovers alike, the holidays are always a time to get killer deals on makeup... and lot's of makeup that is! Most of your favourite brands have cute holiday bundles all ready to go for the holidays so this is always a great time to save some money and go out and take advantage of the holidays.  I thought it was only fitting for me to go through the holiday bundles I personally am loving and looking forward to, and those that really are worth the $$$. So let's get into it shall we?

Bobbi Brown - Bobbi to Shimmer Glow Brick

Bobbi Brown's shimmer glow bricks are always loved for subtle highlighting and even as an eyeshadow topper. So when there's a palette that includes all 3 in one, you know that's a steal! The quality is amazing on these too! The perfect stocking stuffer for sure.

Marc Jacobs Beauty - Object of Desire Face and Eye Palette

These eyeshadows are gorgeous for the season and include enough light tones as well that it can used all season long. This is also a face palette combined and includes a highlight, blush and bronzer. So you can do your entire face with this baby. If you are new to Marc Jacobs products, why not give this a try?

Sephora - Confetti Set of 5 mini sponges

Make up sponges are always a necessity when it comes to applying your makeup flawlessly. But let's get real, sometimes the price for one sponge is insane! Not that I'm bagging on the Beauty Blender, I love it, but hey these 5 mini sponges for $15? Yes please! This is a great gift idea too or a great way to get a lot of makeup sponges for yourself.

NARS - Mind Game Velvet Lip Glide Set

Okay... breathe. 6 sexy lip shades by NARS. That should be enough to splurge but these colours are just so dreamy! They have some gorgeous nude shades and also some bolder lip hues for days when you're feeling a bit daring. This set is unfortunately already sold out on Sephora's website but hey sign up for that email reminder to be the first to grab it when it comes back!

Kat Von D - Everlasting Obsession Liquid Lipstick Collector's Edition

Kat Von D can do no wrong. Her eyeshadow palettes are always pigmented and gorgeous. And when it comes to matte liquid lipstick... well from the colours to the actual formula. It's all just perfection. This kit has 15 shades, is vegan friendly and has a 5 star rating on Sephora. What's not to love?

Huda Beauty - Liquid Matte Minis

4 gorgeous matte shades in mini versions. A great price and an even greater way to try out more shades for the money. I love the formulation on Huda Beauty's liquid mattes and this is a great bundle for the holidays. You can find this on Cult Beauty's website if interested!

Sunday Riley - #SquadGoals Skincare Essentials Kit

Sunday Riley is an amazing skincare which I personally love. The Ceramic Slip Clay cleanser and the Luna sleeping night oil are great for the skin. I can personally vouch for those products, and if you are looking for a great way to try more of their line, this kit is definitely for you!

Those are our holiday bundles pick for this year. If you have any great deals you want to share with us, please leave a comment below! And we'll be back soon with another blog post featuring some more new discovers in makeup.
