Inspired By....Benefit "Lollitint", Review & Nail Art

Hello Tea Mates!  When I first started this blog, I did a few posts called "Inspired By", where I did nail art inspired by things that caught my eye, for example, I did mani inspired by a Herve Leger dress.  More recently I did a nail art look inspired by the packaging from a few Anna Sui products, which I actually got to show Anna, in-person (you can check it out HERE).   Today, I start a new series, where I mix 3 things that I love - make up, reviews, and nail art.  The product of the moment is.........

L'Oreal Warehouse Sale - Spring 2015

It's no secret that I have a hard time saying 'no' to a good warehouse sale.  And this one is no different.  Say hello to the L'Oreal warehouse sale.  As per usual, my makeup fairy godmother Merry of twitter's @MakeupByMerry sent me some tickets, as this sale is not open to the public.  This sale is open twice a year, I believe, and I always look forward to attending (type in "L'Oreal Warehouse" in the search bar on the right, and check out some of my visits).

Makeup Addict Tag

It's official.  It's one thing when you give the title to yourself, but when you get tagged to do the tag, there is no question.  I'm a makeup addict - and I love it!  I got tagged on twitter by Jenn from Procrastinating Pretty to do the makeup addict tag, and since I have so much fun doing tags, I couldn't say no.

The tag has 10 questions, and I've got 10 answers for you.

Beauty Products That are Keeping Me Warm

When I first started writing this post, I wrote as follows:  "I can't complain too much about winter, this year.  Compared to winters of years past, including the big Toronto snow storm of 2014, this winter has been a breeze."

And then February happened.  I take it all back - this winter was awful!  23 out of 28 days in February had cold weather alerts.  Yikes.  Let's continue...

I find that with the cold weather, comes feelings of being uninspired make-up-wise.  My skin tone is the palest during this time of year, and I really need all the help I can get to fake some colour, and make me look semi-human-like.  So here are some of my saving-grace beauty products that have been giving me life this winter.
