*NEW* L'Oréal Paris Colour Riche Nail Polishes for FW2015

One of the challenging question on Monday, besides "Can I not go to work?", is "What nail colour should I wear today?"  And L'Oréal Paris makes this even tougher for us with their new shades for this FW2015 season.

Dior 5 Couleurs Collector Palette in 576 Eternal Gold and 886 Blazing Gold

Featuring gold in the holiday collection is definitely Dior's tradition.  This Holiday, Dior brought out two Dior 5 Couleurs Collector Couture Colours & Effect Eyeshadow Palettes (CA $70 / US $63)576 Eternal Gold and 886 Blazing Gold.

While still keeping the gold theme, Dior has created a subtle "grey-gold" shade in the Eternal Gold palette, which are complemented by a rosy beige, a soft white gold, a brownish purple and a glittery charcoal.  The shades are the cooler side, but since they're still quite neutral, it still flatters those with warmer skin tone—I've been using it every day for last couple of weeks.

Taking things to a more festive level, the Blazing Gold palette features a cranberry red, a warm light pink, an iridescent gold, a satin chocolate brown, and a warm charcoal with sparkles.  This is a great palette to that will take you from Thanksgiving to the Holidays.  If you forget the red, which I know it can be scary for some, it'll be a great every day quad too.

Ever since they have updated their formula last year, I've been enjoying the Dior eyeshadow formula more.  It's much smoother and consistent in quality.  While I like using my brushes to apply eyeshadows, for everyday use, I don't mind getting my fingers dirty; and these eyeshadows are great for that.  They're very blendable, not overly soft such that the power would get everywhere.

As you might might be able to tell, between the two I like Eternal Gold more because it has a more versatile colour palette.  I like that I'm able to use it every day or create a dramatic look for all those Holiday parties.

You know it's almost the Holidays when Santa comes to town.  This past weekend, the annual Santa Claus Parade took place in downtown Toronto.  The man and I took this great opportunity to getting into festive mode.  Even though it was a beautiful day, it was still quite chilly, so I prepared myself with a chunky knit sweater and knee high boots with fleece inside.

Happy Mani Monday!

Every year Dior brings out these little pots of "gold", otherwise known as the Diorific Nail Vernis (CA $33 / US $27), for the Holiday season.  I'm not exaggerating or anything when I said "gold" because when it comes to gold nails for the Holidays, Dior knows best what to do.

Last year we went head over heels for the Benefit Cheeky Sweet Spot Box O’ Blushes, which features all, but one (Dallas), of their then current line up of their box o' powder.  The kit was sold out so quickly last year, it has done so well that they're doing it again... but a little differently this year...

In the Benefit Real Cheeky Party Blushing Beauty Kit (CA $54 / US $42), instead of BellaBamba, which sadly is no longer part of their box o' powder line up, they included the mini version of Watt's Up Highlighter, They're Real Mascara, and They're Real Push Up Liner, along with Dandelion, Rockateur, Sugarbomb, Hoola and Coralista.
