[twitter-follow screen_name=’NoireTropicalB’]

My 2nd favourite time of year is back (the first of course is summer)!  This weekend is TMS NYC and it’s my one must attend event for the year.  I just love taking all those seminars, all those beauty products and meeting all my blogging buddies! : )

And what’s great is that this is the biggest TMS and they have released an app for iPhone/iPad/Android, which is pretty damn great.  It can get pretty chaotic, especially now they have expanded.  I’ve already downloaded it and have my seminars all lined up.

So check out the info on the event and the app!!!

I’m heading there on Sunday.  Who’s going??? Hail mih out!

Laters!

My favourite products of 2011!!

The countdown to 2012 has begun!!!

I enjoyed digging into beauty this year.  I loved that we embraced colour, texture, prints or anything bold.  It was ok to colour block or to dress with some opulence.  I love that these trends will continue into 2012.  I’m over all-neutral looks.

So here’s what I loved in 2011 (in no particular order):

1) Becca Beach Tints

I love this product! I have it in Peach and it is probably the easiest blush to apply.  Super smooth texture and it just melts into the skin making to colour look like it came from within.  Works on all skin types.  A must have in all seasons!

Is it a lipstick or a lipgloss??

It’s a lip creme actually! I’m talking about the new Soft Matte Lip Cremes from NYX Cosmetics.  This is the last part of my mini haul.  These products came out earlier this year and there has been a lot of buzz surrounding these.  The Lip Cremes come in packaging similar to the typical lip gloss with matte, rubberized caps and the doe foot applicator.  The lip cremes are supposed to be more pigmented than a lip gloss but more moisturizing than a matte lipstick.  These come in 11 colours and I paid $4.50 each from beautyjoint.com.  What a steal!  These products are similar to the Stila Long Wear Liquid Lip Color.

I purchased 3 colours:

Mini Stila haul and swatches!!!

So as I previously mentioned, I did a little damage at IMATS and picked up a few items from Stila Cosmetics.

So the first things I went for were the Long Wear Liquid Lip Color.  Felicia from ThisThatBeauty rocks Fiery, a deep red matte lip colour ALL OF THE TIME! And it looks great on her, so course  I had to have it.  I met Bethany Townes and she was wearing a gorgeous fuschia colour and it turned out to be Caprice. Here are the swatches:

Top: Caprice, bottom: Fiery

I'm ready for summer, so is Stila, are you?

One of the best times of the year is when companies start releasing their summer collections! I am thrilled, summer gets to last more than 3 months, at least in my mind!

So Stila recently released their summer 2011 offerings, which focused on pops of bright colours for the eyes, bronzey  skin and see-thru lips.

At this time, the collection is available online at stilacosmetics.com and will appear later on at specialty stores, like Sephora.

My eyes instantly made a beeline for those bright shimmery liquid liners.  These look just like the liners that M.A.C. brought out last year except these are bold and I love them. They are billed as the first sparkle waterproof liners.  Full review and swatches on them in a later post!

Check out the rest of the collection! (all photos and info courtesy of Stilacosmetics.com)
