Tay’s Thoughts- Lancome Baume in Love

So, for my birthday, my lovely friends, Emily and Heather (Thanks guys <3) got me the Lancome Baume in Love in the shade, Urban Ballet. I have been lusting over it for the longest time and it is the most amazing lip product ever.

First, let’s talk about the packaging. The whole Spring collection has the cutest packing, it’s all pink and girly and perfect!

Secondly, the texture of this is amazing. I guess this could be considered a tinted lip balm but it is really so much more than that. It is a super sheer hot pink but it almost changes to a brighter pink on your lips throughout the day. Two of my best friends bought this product as well and it looks absolutely amazing on their lips as well, it’s so universal! It is also super moisturizing and I love how glossy it applies.

There is not one thing I would want to change about this product. It is the prettiest lip balm/lip color that I own! I believe this is a limited edition product so pick it up while you still can!

Find it at Shopper’s Drug Mart or here


Tay’s Thoughts- EOS Lip Balms

I have been meaning to write a post on EOS lip balms for a while now. So here I am, finally doing it. I should give you a bit history first though. 3 and a half years ago, EOS lip balms didn’t even exist in Canada. They were extremely popular in the US but alas none could be found in Canada… Until we discovered a little clothing store called RW&Co sold them. We were desperate find them, but they sold out almost immediately every time new stock came in. I remember me and my friends phoning every day, asking if they had gotten any in. Finally, they did, and my first EOS lip balm was born. It was the Honeydew Honeysuckle one. Soon after, Walmart and Shopper’s drug mart started carrying them so my collection grew and grew.

There was just one problem. I hate EOS lip balms. I know what you’re thinking… “Taylor, you have 8 lip balms that you supposedly hate?!” Yes, yes I do. But here’s the thing. The only thing I hate about them is the actual balm. I find then extremely unmoisturizing and a hard consistency, I like lip balms that just melt onto my lips. These do absolutely nothing for my dry, cracked lips. Now back to the important question, why do I have eight of them? I find the packaging and appearance completely adorable. Yes, I am judging the book by its cover. Plus, the scents are so yummy. Summer fruit, vanilla bean, sweet mint… How could I pass those up? And I do occasionally use these. As you can see by the photos, they don’t just sit in my room untouched. However, I only reach for these when I just need a quick swipe of something under my lipstick, not looking for extreme comfort and hydration.

That being said, if you don’t have particularly dry lips, these would probably work find for you. But, let’s be honest, who doesn’t choose their lip balms based on adorability factor? And since these are the cutest lip balms around, go pick up a few.

2013 Makeup Bag Favorites

Rimmel Stay Matte Powder (buy here)- I recently picked up this powder after hearing everyone rave about it. Those people definitely weren’t exaggerating. This product. is such a great setting powder, it keeps my face matte all day without making me look cakey or overly powdery.

Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation (buy here)- Long story short, this foundation is amazing. I did a full length review on this so go read that: http://when-im-older.com/post/70908575995

Dr. Hauschka (buy here)- I don’t wear a concealer on a day to day basis because I find it makes me break out more but on special occasions or if I have a really obvious pimple, I’ll use this one. I love that it has medical ingredients because it helps clear the blemishes while covering them.

Benefit Rockateur Boxed Powder (buy here)- I also did a full review on this so go check that out to hear my thoughts: http://when-im-older.com/post/61764339138

Maybelline Dream Sun Bronzer (buy here)- I’ve never really been into bronzer but I love how this one has so many different shades in it so I can customize just how much color I want on my face for that day.

Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in Dollface (buy here)- This will forever be my favorite blush. I don’t have one bad thing to say about it. It stays on all day, has just the right amount of pigmentation, and it’s the prettiest color ever!

Benefit Creaseless Cream Shadow in RSVP (buy here)- Mine is starting to dry up but this is such a pretty base. It makes any eyeshadow more vibrant and helps it not crease throughout the day.

Mac Eyeshadow in All That Glitters (buy here)- This is the only mac eyeshadow I own. Shocking right? It’s such a gorgeous color and is so versatile for every eye look.

Smashbox Always Sharp Kohl Liner in Nude (buy here)- This eyeliner is amazing. I love to line my waterline with a nude color to open them up but it’s usually so hard to find the perfect pencil liner. However, this one sharpens itself when you twist on the cap and it’s waterproof so it stays on for so long!

Covergirl Clump Crusher Mascara (buy here)- This has been my favorite mascara of 2013. It works so great with my lashes. Like it’s name states, the bristles help eliminate any clumps while adding volume and length. Read my review here: http://when-im-older.com/post/59593207236

Nuxe Lipbalm (buy here)- This is my favorite lip balm and the only one that I keep repurchasing. I use it up super quick but it’s totally worth it. It helps keep my lips moisturized and smooth. Read my review here: http://when-im-older.com/post/68172364700

Covergirl Smoochies Lip Balm in Luv U (buy here)- I love this tinted lip balm! It goes on so smooth and I find it is actually moisturizing! Plus, the color is gorgeous! It’s just a medium toned pink so it’s perfect for everyday wear.
