Face of the Day - Trust Issues

I recently became the proud owner of the Anastasia Beverly Hills liquid lipstick in 'Trust Issues'.  I've always been a fan of the colour, but have owned very similar shades (NYX Lip Suede in 'Vintage'), so I held off on owning the ABH one.  Until now, that is.  And after wearing it, I thought to myself "WHYYYYYY did I wait so long?".

Here's the look I sported with the liquid lippie that myself and my friend Laura personally thanked Anastasia Soare for making (at the ABH meet & greet HERE).

Shoppers Drug Mart Beauty Boutique Haul

Fun fact:  I didn't know that Shoppers Drug Mart carried more than drugstore brands until 3 years ago, because my local Shoppers Drug Mart had the smallest beauty aisle you've ever seen.

Three years ago I saw the light.  I remember thinking "Shoppers sells Benefit Cosmetics?   SHOPPERS SELLS CHANEL?!?!".  It was a transformative day.

I've been a big fan of the "warm and rusty" shades of makeup, for the past little while.  So, when I saw the Dior eyeshadow palette in 'Trafalgar', I immediately fell in love with the rich red shadow that is featured in the centre of the palette.
