New Additions - Oribe, Charlotte Tilbury, Kiehl's

Hey everyone! 

Lately a lot of makeup / skincare shopping has been happening. I've been wanting to try out a lot of items which in turn has resulted in an unhappy bank account. And then I found out that Holt Renfrew now has an online beauty shop. Cue my visa crying as I place my order. 

Find out more below! 








First up - the infamous Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray. This has gotten so my hype on the internet. People rave about it nonstop. I finally bit the bullet and picked up a big bottle. What are my thoughts? So far its just ok. I'm not wowed and I don't get the hype. I think I'm using it wrong...more testing will need to be done. BUT it smells amazing! I love the scent and makes second day hair smell so SO good. 

Next up I knew I wanted to pick up a couple lipsticks from Charlotte Tilbury. Another purchase made because of the of the internet. I prefer matte lipsticks so I picked up Bond Girl and Love Liberty from the Matte Revolution line. I can get about 4-5 hours of wear with these but I reapply after eating. I prefer Love Liberty because it is more berry toned. Bond Girl is just ok so far. I need to get more use of both before a full in depth review. 

I also picked up a couple items from Kiehl's as I've never tried anything from the brand. Picked up the Ultimate Strength Hand Salve and I love it. I use this at night and it's really helping with my dry hands. It's not overly thick so I'll also be using this during the day once my current moisturizer that I keep for work is done. And lastly, I picked up the Kiehl's Lip Balm. This I'm not loving. It's like petroleum jelly - but this is also my fault as I didn't really read what type of lip balm this was and I was hoping it was a thicker texture to be used at nighttime. 

That's it! 

If you have pointers on how to use the Oribe dry texturizing spray, please add them in the comment box or send me a tweet! Next post will be on my Sephora haul! 

Have a great week!
