mark. All Bundled Up Collection

Bundling up in a warm blanket by a fire while it’s chilly outside is something I’m very much looking forward to after a very long and hot summer. It’s still too warm to wrap myself up in layers but I can luckily achieve that feeling with the new All Bundled Up collection from mark.

Cozy and comforting is the name of the game with this collection, which includes body mist, hand cream, body butter and body wash. All of the products contain the warm and inviting scent of crisp sparkling pear, warm vanilla bean, and rich golden amber and I got to try out the body mist and hand cream from the collection. The body mist ($14 ) not only envelops your skin with the warm scent but also makes you feel refreshed and hydrated. The hand cream ($6.00) is a rich and creamy formula that contains vitamins A & E.

Before & After using the hand cream

My Thoughts:

Anything with vanilla in it is already a winner for me, but I love the warmth the amber adds and the mix of soft pear. This collection definitely smells like a warm fall/winter night and it immediately relaxes me. I like that the body mist smells a little heavier, so it lasts longer on my skin compared to regular vanilla body mists. I’m not a fan of really greasy hand creams but the hand cream is rich yet light enough where I don’t feel like I’m greasing up everything I touch. If you love vanilla scented products that have that added warmth and overall cozy vibe, you will love what this collection has to offer.

Avon, Review
Avon True Color Glimmersticks Eyeliners

Sometimes a little swipe of colourful liner is all you need to dress up your eyes. Avon‘s True Color Glimmersticks are their #1 best selling eyeliners that have recently been updated with more vibrant shades that still have the long wearing intensity Avon customers have been loving.

Avon True Color Glimmersticks Eyeliners Review

From L-R: Majestic Plum, Teal Sparkle, Blackened Green

My Thoughts:Β 

Very smooth and beautifully pigmented, I can see why these liners are a top seller. They are really creamy to the point that you’ll have to be careful not to put too much pressure on them because the tips will break off. I like to twist out a little bit of the liner so the pencil itself protects the liner from breaking, for the most part, compared to twisting more of it out. Teal Sparkle is definitely a beautiful colour and my favourite out of the liners I got to test and review, but Blackened Green is also a very close second because it’s such a rich, shimmering dark green that’s perfect for fall and winter. They’re not waterproof but the colours do hold up well on the upper lash line for some added dazzle.

Sally Hansen Color Therapy Collection

Nails, NOTD, Review, Sally Hansen
Sally Hansen Color Therapy Collection

A couple months ago, I got to attend an event for the launch of the new Sally Hansen Color Therapy Collection. First off, Sally Hansen nail polishes are already pretty bomb but they decided to take it a step further and come out with a collection of polishes that provide a stunning range of colours as well as complete care for your nails that were created in partnership with Sally Hansen’s Global Color Ambassador, Madeline Poole. This means that while wearing any of the Color Therapy polishes, your nails will start to improve and look healthier. Amazing!

The Color Therapy collection includes vibrant shades that come in three different colour palettes (Rich Tones, Pinks/Corals, Nudes), and glide on smoothly for a shiny finish that offers up to 10 days of fade-proof and chip-proof wear. Color Therapy also offers a top coat as well as a nail and cuticle oil that are both formulated with argan oil, the same ingredient included in the polishes. Aside from the argan oil, Color Therapy polishes also contains a complex blend of acai, which is rich in omega 3, 6, and 9, and evening primrose oil, which features essential fatty acids that help strengthen nails. Color Therapy comes with a wide spectrum of 33 rich shades inspired by luxurious tones and I have 14 of those shades to share with you today.

Price: $11.95 ea. / Available now at Mass Retailers

My Thoughts:

As an already big fan of Sally Hansen polishes, I wondered how they could possibly make their polishes better. Obviously integrating more ingredients that nurture your nails is a great enhancement, but what I really love about these nail polishes is their ability, in most cases, to apply so pigmented and smooth with just one coat. The brush was kept at its same wide width so it perfectly covers my whole nail with one stroke. The top coat also ensures that these polishes will last at their longest and chips will start to appear around a week of wear. The nail and cuticle oil is a nice added touch because I suffer from dry cuticles and helps make my manicure look even better and I enjoy its sweet, nutty smell. The collection covers every colour anyone would need, especially bold fall/winter hues that I’m currently loving right now. Therapewter and Slicks and Stones are majorly hot colours that are my absolute favourite. They reflect different colours under different lighting and it’s something fun and unexpected to wear. The packaging has a rose gold tint to it which makes these collection look higher end compared to the original collection. If you love Sally Hansen, or just top quality polishes with a budget-friendly price, you will want to pick up every-single-colour in this collection!
