Stila Little White Lies Collection for Spring / Summer 2019

Stila Little White Lies Collection for Spring / Summer 2019

Efficacious and “melts” into your skin for a weightless, radiance-enhancing luminous glow.

Similar Jacket | Levi’s Jeans | YSL Camera Bag

Not too long ago I was invited to preview Stila’s Spring / Summer 2019 releases at Rosewood Hotel Georgia! My go-to eyeliner has always been Stila’s waterproof eyeliner, so I was extra excited to try the new products. The Little White Lies Collection is available and exclusive to Shoppers Drug Mart in Canada.

Lingerie Soufflé Skin Perfecting Foundation $49 CAD: This luxurious, multifunction foundation that delivers a rush of freshness to the skin. It is light and does not feel weighted. Available in 8 shades that range from fair to deep. The colours are fairly true and there is no oxidation seen with wear at the end of the day.

I normally would wear MAC studio fix fluid in shade NC20 (and NC25 in the summer) and Beige 20 in Chanel VITALUMIERE AQUA. Stila’s Lingerie Soufflé Skin Perfecting Foundation shade 2.0 suits me just perfectly!

After Hours Eyeshadow Palette $68 CAD: This warm sultry luxe eyeshadow palette comes with 12 velvety-soft shades in matte, shimmer, and cosmic-glitter finishes. It is free of parabens and phthalates. I love the deep pigments with superior blending and ultra-rich uniform colour that doesn’t streak or creases.

This palette contains 12 eyeshadows

  • Toast: Soft peachy nude glitter
  • Last Round: Taupe matte
  • Sunset Soirée: Burnt orange shimmer
  • Pink Bubbly: Baby pink shimmer
  • Velvet Rope: Pomegranate glitter
  • Cash Out: Vibrant green glitter
  • Bellini: Light peach shimmer
  • All Nighter: Deep chocolate matte
  • Bright Lights: Yellow gold glitter
  • Anything Goes: Espresso matte
  • Tomorrow’s Tale: Deep reddish-brown matte
  • After Party: Smoky quartz glitter
Stila Little White Lies Collection for Spring 2019

This Look: To create the eyeshadow look above, I used Last Round for a smokey base, Stila’s Glitter & Glow Liquid Eye Shadow Dollish and topped with Toast for a soft peachy shimmer touch. For the inner corners of my eyes, I used Bellini. Lined with Stila’s waterproof eyeliner. Using both Beauty Boss Lip Gloss in Synergy for both my cheeks and lips.

This summer, I’ve been loving this softer, warm smokey eyeshadow colour palette compared to my usual matte black and grey combination. It gives the effect of a nice sunkissed tropical vacation look.

Heaven’s Hue Highlighter in Transcendence

Heaven’s Hue Highlighter $42 CAD: Released earlier in Fall 2018, this highlighter from Stila is still one of my favourites. It is available in 4 shades that are efficacious and “melts” into your skin for a weightless, radiance-enhancing luminous glow. The gossamer-lighter texture gives a dewy complexion that doesn’t appear washed out but a good reflector!

Little White Lies Heavenly Highlighting Palette $59 CAD: This limited edition palette includes 3 white highlighter shades, each with a different undertone – pink, gold and blue. This highlighter has a creamy powder-like texture that melts and blends into your skin for an illuminating and pearlescent skimmer. Again, similar to the Heaven’s Hue Highlighter, the gossamer-light formula has micro-fine glitters that create an ethereal and glistening fairy effect – perfect for layering and highlighting – without that white streak.

TWEEZERMAN Slant Tweezers is the Best Tweezers Ever Made

TWEEZERMAN Slant Tweezers is the Best Tweezers Ever Made

TWEEZERMAN ROSE GOLD SLANT MIRROR HELLONANCE.COM BEAUTY BLOG

Never miss a hair. Get every single hair plucked! I love my Tweezerman slant tweezers. They are honestly the best pair of tweezers ever made. I’ve had mine for over ten years and I don’t know what I’d do without them! I have a pair at home, one in my makeup bag and one in the office. I’m a slave to having nicely arched brows. Stray hairs annoys me! I will pluck them away without remorse! But thank goodness I was never obsessed with plucking to the point of hair free thin brows in the 90s)!

 

The Tweezerman slant tweezers is a great size and weighty. These babies will get every single hair without a pinch or slip. It comes in an assortment of colours and print patterns. But their Rose Gold Collection is by far my favourite. I love everything rose gold. It such a classy colour!

 

I highly recommend getting the Rose Gold Mini Slant and 10x Mirror Duo. The mini mirror has a clear crips magnifying power to help zero in on those ultra fine baby hairs. I also love that it has a suction cup on the back so you can attach the 10x mirror to vanity mirror or any clean, smooth surface! 

 

Also one of my favourites is their Classic Curler. They curl my lashes beautifully without creasing or sticking. It even gets those corner lashes that always seem to get missed with other curlers!

 

We love the Tweezerman Rose Gold collection so much that we are giving away a set to one of our loyal readers!

 

Included in the prize back is:

  • 1x Rose Gold Mini Slant and 10x Mirror Duo
  • 1x Rose Gold Classic Curler

 

Products are available at Sephora, Shoppers Drug Mart, and Tweezerman.ca

Sulwhasoo Snowise Ex Brightening Mask Review

Sulwhasoo Snowise Ex Brightening Mask Review

I come from a long line of sun spot avoiders. In my 20s, I never had a skincare routine that I followed religiously. It wasn’t until I hit my 30s that I really used sunscreen (by the way you definitely should – just like eye cream)! So while my friends were bathing in the sun or seeking that golden glow with self tanners I was looking for brightening miracles. Something that would melt away age.

 

Aging is a bitch (even more annoying than my noisy next door neighbor). I love a good sheet mask like the girl next door. However not all sheet masks are made equal. Some sheets allow ingredients to penetrate the skin deeper and better and prevents evaporation. Other serum-soaked sheet masks promises dewy skin. That’s why I’ve been a fan of Sulwhasoo Snowise Ex Brightening Mask from the jump! Why it’s taken me this long to write a review, beats me! – secretly I want to keep this secret, well, a secret.

 

If you haven’t guessed by now, Sulwhasoo is a Korean skincare brand. Their First Care Activating Serum has been ranked No. 1 serum in Korea for 20 consecutive years! So you can imagine the efficacy of Sulwahsoo Snowise Ex Brightening Mask. The product design is minimalist. Each box comes with ten individual masks.

 

Formulation: Each mask is fermented in white ginseng through a 2 week process. It brings immediate brightening results. The advanced bio-cellulose formulation is said to minimize age spots and help improve collagen regeneration. I use it after my nightly skincare routine: after serum. It left my skin plump and hydrated.

 

Sulwhasoo Snowise Ex Brightening Mask Review HelloNance Canada Beauty BLOG
Application:  Sulwahsoo Snowise Ex Brightening Mask has a jelly like texture. It is packaged in between two mesh films. On the back of each mask, there is an easy to follow instructions with illustrations. Carefully unfold the mask and remove one side of the mesh film – if you don’t you’ll probably start to wonder why it feels so funny and coarse on your face! Place the jelly mask on your face. The jelly should hug your face, reassuring you that she’s got you covered! The masks is cool and soothing and stays on firmly. Once the mask is on, you can remove the other side of the mesh film (optional). I leave the mask for 20 to 30 mins. Sometimes for as long as an episode of Game of Thrones or C-drama.

 

Results: My skin was plump and hydrated after I removed the mask. While my face felt refreshed and softened, the mask itself was not dry unlike other paper sheet masks. There was even excess serum left as I pulled away the mask. I patted the remaining liquid miracle into my skin. Not one drop is to be wasted. After a few uses (followed by a restful, uninterrupted sleep) my skin was glowing – brightened and a bit softer.

 

A box of Sulwhasoo is expensive. It costs CAD $180 per box. That is $18 per sheet mask. Others average half the price. Dr Jart+ for example costs CAD $9. Although it pricey, I feel the results warrant the sticker price.
