Candy Shop by Deborah Lippmann

I thought I loved the Anna Sui glitter polishes, until I got my first Deborah Lippmann at Christmas from my Boyfriend. I went out and bought a couple more, one of which is Candy Shop. I couldn't get good swatch photos, but you can definitely just google it to get a bunch of swatches at once. All I need to tell you is if you like pink, glitter or both... buy it.

Glitter perfection.

Summer Shoes @ Razberry

Razberry is one of my favourite stores in Montreal. Even just to browse the girly lace goodies and punk rock heels is a feast for the eyes. I got a pair of really comfy (because they are so light) heeled sandals. My favourite part is the gold engraved triangles all over the heels. The store has 2 sister stores around it which I might post about someday soon!

Anna Sui and Paul&Joe Glitter Polishes

I am posting some of my favorite polishes in my collection and they are all glitters. Anna Sui makes some of the best in my opinion because they dry relatively fast, the colors are unique, the texture is thick but not too thick that it makes it hard to apply and they scent/packaging is so pretty! Paul and Joe is also great. I am not a fan of the scent but the texture is good and the color payoff on the nude glitter I have is gorgeous, it does dry a bit slower though.

Anna Sui 701: This is a pretty silver glitter with a sort of nude/purple base. I think it's the most flattering on me and you can build it up to be very glittery or stay with 2 coats as I have in the photo to make it more translucent and blend with your natural nail color.

Anna Sui 301: A deep pink with yellowish iridescent glitters. This is sort of similar to 701 but more of the base and less of the glitter show up.

Anna Sui 305: Such a cute and femanine nude pink color. The glitters are more blue iridescent and the base is more jelly like, so there is even more base and less glitter than the previous. It can make a nice top coat to add a light pink shimmer coat to a flat color.

Anna Sui 107: This is a top coat but I love to wear it alone too. In the swatch I only have it on with 2 coats but going up to 3 coats makes it nicer to wear on it's own. It's basically a clear turquoise-ish blue jelly base with big silver glitter and blue iridescent shimmers. Similar in texture to 305 but a little more smooth.
Two fingers have Sephora by OPI Mermaid to Order under it to show how pretty it is as a topcoat!
Paul & Joe 23: A pretty beige nude color with blue/green iridescent glitters. I think this is a very flattering nude shade because of the glitters. Sometimes a flat nude might look odd on certain skin tones but with the glitters and shimmer in this one it seems more wearable and more fun at the same time.

I highly recommend all of these but if I had to pick I would pick Anna Sui overall, they dry a bit faster and the colors just seem more unique. Altho 23 from P&J is just too gorgeous to pass up!

Ottawa Trip

We took a day trip to Ottawa, mainly to go to a big Asian grocery store called T&T. I heard they are a place in Canada that sells My Beauty Diary Masks so I was excited to go there for that. Here is my random Ottawa Haul. We didn't do much there but it was fun to get out of our city. For masks I got the Blooming Beauty masks in Lily, Phalaenopsis, Hydrangea and the regular line's Bulgarian Rose. Also picked up a Shiseido Tsubaki Head Spa shampoo. On Bank Street I got 4 truffles at Truffle Treasures.

Good Deals @ Urban Outfitters

Urban Outfitters has been one of my favorite places to shop for a long time. I can get some of the cutest things for cheap because they often have great sales, online is easy but in the shops you have to look around about (but it's worth it). Last week got this little box of earrings for 4.99$ which made me pretty happy!

DIOR Petal Shine 5-Colour Palette

Picked this up at Sephora yesterday, didn't expect to though. I was in to buy the Extreme wear foundation then decided not to, then (still really want) decided on the new Dior Addict lipstick in Tokyo but they had none left. Since I had a VIB coupon for some free Benefit stuff for 50$+ I chose this since I was stalking it for a little while. The lighting is bad in these photos, the sun was going down. It's so pretty! I haven't touched it yet!

KOREAN Cosmetics store in Montreal!

So... since before the Holidays there has been a shop which I probably passed by numerous times and never noticed. It's called C&C Korean Cosmetics and I am just kicking myself for not seeing this sooner. They carry Laneige, Etude House, Skin Food, Missha etc. I found it online when I really spent a little while searching for playing in Montreal with Asian cosmetics. BIG YAY! I kind of freaked out when I found the store. Here is my haul from 2 trips there. I also have a VIP card and am planning a big haul for the end of the month because you get 15% off on your birthday.

LaNeige Multi Berry peel, Etude House Moistful primer, The Face Shop nail polish, Missha and Etude Hosue masks + samples
I also got another Missha Pearl mask and an Aloe mask from my frist trip but my bf and I used them before I took this photo.

For anyone who wants stuff from Etude House etc and doesn't want to buy on Ebay, and Canadians who want some Korean Cosmetics from a Canadian based shop (since a lot of time we get git with duty fees) definitely check their online shop.
PS: their address is on their website for anyone who reads this from Montreal.
