    29 St-Honoré by Aaron de Mey for Lancôme

    This new Lancôme collection only comes out in mid-September but I couldn’t wait to show you the goods. Some fall collections have already started making their way to beauty counters so as much as my brain isn’t ready to process the idea of fall beginning once again, I am more than ready to start sporting the new makeup collections now.

    Bite Beauty: My New Favourite Lip Colours

    As you may have heard, Bite Beauty is a new line of cosmetics for sale exclusively at Sephora, one of my favourite places! These new lip colours from this emerging brand blew me away. Aside from the rockin’s shades (just look at how fab these colours are!!), the textures are fab and they nourish the lips oh-so-well!

    Here are my faves:

    High Pigment Pencil $28

    This sumptuous lipstick pencil is ultra-pigmented and are definitely destined for the woman who doesn’t shy away from adventure. This pencil is available in 6 amazing shades. My personal favourites are Grapevine (pictured above) and Pomegranate. Personal tip: Downplay the rest of your makeup because this ultra-glam colour will command all the attention!

    Luminous Crème Lipstick ($28)

    This lipstick is exactly what it claims to be — creamy! It’s very hydrating and nourishing and won’t dry out thanks to its organic fruit butter ingredients. It comes in a variety of shades (21 to be exact). Pictured above is one of the neutral shades. My go-to colour is Cassis. It looks intense but it really makes for pretty lips. See…

    Lip Shine ($23)

    This is actually a coloured lip treatment and it glides on like silk. I love the neutral palette and with 10 luminous shades, you’re sure to find one you love in no time!

    Lip Rouge ($25)

    You can use this two-in-one product on the lips or cheeks. At the moment, I am addicted to Apple, the perfect shade of red! So pretty, no?

    Golden Globes: Celebrity Hits and Misses

    I look forward to award shows only to see the red carpet looks of my favourite stars. I love the see the elegant dresses of stars like Katherine Zeta Jones and the quirky ensembles put together by out-there stars like Helena Bonham Carter (two different colour shoes? She’s awesome).

    One of my all-time favourite actresses is the talented and ridiculously beautiful Halle Berry. I loved her look last night. From her tousled hair to her subdued makeup and nude lips, she perfectly offset her elegant and super sexy outfit. The reason I love her subdued makeup is because it shows us all that you don’t need three pounds of makeup to look marvellous. True, Halle has got some amazing genes that we all wish we had, but her subtle smoky eye and natural lips made her look classic, elegant and chic, as usual.

    I think Natalie Portman’s look was also a huge hit. She looked so adorable in that pink Viktor & Rolf gown which complemented her natural pregnancy glow. Natalie went for the just bitten red lips look and it worked. She matched it with a sophisticated hair twist and it was the perfect combo. Congrats on this mommy-to-be’s Golden Globe win for her role in Black Swan and congrats on her Beauty Booty-approved look.

    January Jones. What can I say? I was a little on the fence about her look but in the end, I’ve decided I love it. Her scarlet red lips and vamp blond hairstyle gave her an old Hollywood look. The bright red dress (which seemed to be the colour of choice for most celebs, along with forest green) tells me that red is going to be a hot trend this spring so it’s nowhere near over in the beauty world. Get yourself a scarlet red lip colour ASAP.

    Speaking of Scarlett, this brings to my one style diss of the evening. Scarlett Johansson’s hairstyle was, unfortunately, just atrocious. It sort of reminded me of the Bride of Frankenstein’s hairdo and I really didn’t like it. It wouldn’t have matched quirky celeb but I expected more elegance and sophistication from this bombshell. Overall: disappointed.

    Which celebs do you think rocked it last night? And which ones do you think need to hire new stylists?
