Dior Backstage Eyeliners-To-Wear Multi-Wear Adhesive Eyeliner Patches and Backstage Brow Design Brow Shaping Stencils Kit

Hi Everyone!  So I was strolling through my local Sephora, when I spotted these babies!  I was really excited and intrigued to see that Dior came out with eyeliner patches.  They are known for their amazing eyeliner in ads and now they've made it so that the regular woman can have perfect fool proof eyeliner as well.  I was able to test a pair out this past weekend at a wedding...and they looked fabulous!  I got so many compliments on how my eyeliner looked flawless and no one was aware that they were stuck on.  The great thing about these are that they are reusable.  However, in order to increase the longevity of these I would recommend putting them on before you put your eyeshadow on.  That way the adhesive on the back of the eyeliner patch lasts longer and doesn't loose it's "stickiness" as quickly.  And when you do loose it's adhesiveness, they have included a small tube of glue.  I am looking forward to trying the other 3 patches, as I've only been able to use one pair.  But I am pretty confident that I will love them all!  As for the eyebrow stencils, I have not been able to fully test them out.  I am planning on giving them a whirl this weekend.  Once I try them out I will be able to give y'all a better opinion on if they are worth the cost.  You can purchase them at  And below are some detailed specs on the products and more pics.

Dior Backstage Eyeliners-To-Wear Multi-Wear Adhesive Eyeliner Patches $59
- 4 pairs of eyeliner patches 
-small glue tube

Dior Backstage Brow Design Brow Shaping Stencils Kit $40

What do you think about these new products from Dior...are they a hit or miss?

VS Makeup: Hypnotic Beauty Collection

Hey Everyone!  I am back with the Fall 2011 collection from Victoria Secret, it's called the Hypnotic Beauty Collection.  This is a reasonably sized collection that contains a couple lipsticks, blush/highlighter, a few eyeshadow palettes, and kohl/kajal eyeliner.  So what items did I decide to pick up...

*Lipstick: in Exotica- $14
*Blush/Highlighter: Desert Star- $16
*Kohl/Kajal Eyeliner- $15

The packaging is beautiful!  I love the exotic, foreign design and feel to the packaging.  The products are encased in gold and a mix of vibrant colours.  The only thing that I found to be annoying about the packaging was with the lipstick, I did not like that the lipstick does not go all the way down.  Even when your done turning the lipstick tube, the product is still peaking out (as you will notice in the picture below).  When I'm in a rush this can become a problem by getting a little messy and possibly all over my things.  As for the products themselves, I truly love the lipstick shade in Exotica!  It is simply a beautiful rich bronze/coral/red colour.  The formulation isn't to die for, but what it lacks in formulation is definitely made up for in the colour.  I wouldn't say that there is extended wear with this product, and reapplication would be necessary every few hours. The blush/highlighter powder looks like a mosaic, and is almost too pretty to use!  Which works out fairly well for me, because I don't find that the colour of the highlighter is anything special.  And I feel it can be easily duplicated by many products on the market!  So I have decided to just keep this product as an addition to my stash, since it just makes me happy when I look at it.  As for the eye kajal, it is perfect for lining the waterline and the colour is a deep and intense black that is perfect for that smokey sultry look.  And as always, you can click on the picture to enlarge it and get a better look.  And you can also find these products on

My recommendations are for you to go to your local Victoria Secret and test out these products for yourself!

Do you only buy lingerie from Victoria Secret or do you pick up beauty products there as well?

MAC Holiday Collection 2011

MAC Ice Parade Collection 2011





I am such a sucker for eyeshadow and travel brush sets.  I know that the quality of the brushes is just not the same as the full size ones, but I love taking these with me in my  makeup bag or when I travel. Especially these since they have that adorable clear handle!  Where do they expect us to get the money to buy all of their collections??!!

MAC Glitter Ice Collection



The packaging is very intriguing.  Looks like I will be spending a lot of money on myself this Christmas.  Why MAC, why?? 

MAC Dazzlespheres Collection


These would make amazing stocking stuffers!!   For MYSELF of course :)
For all the information about these MAC collections, head on over to  She has more descriptions, more pics and even prices.
