WARPAINT & Unicorns Favourites of 2015!

Happy New Year!!! Or if your reading this on New Years Eve have a blast tonight!

This is my run down of my favourites that I have posted a review on during the 2015 year. I'm not going to stick to "categories" again as I did not really covered all the areas in beauty and this year I'm also sticking to permanent products or products you can still get a hold of formula wise.

PS: This year is very lip and eye heavy. ;)

L’Oreal Colour Riche Le Matte Lipcolour Stick in Game, Set & Matte, and She’s So Matte : Swatches & Review

PURCHASED
L’Oreal Colour Riche Le Matte Lipcolour Stick in Game, Set & Matte, and She’s So Matte
The Maybelline Lip Studio Color Blur's retail for $9.99US or $10.99CAN (at Zerhs) to $12.99CAN for 0.092 oz. of product. The full shades range of Matte For Me, She’s So Matte, Game Set Matte (Game, Set & Matte on Canadian label), Mad For Matte, and Matte-r Of Fact has been launched in Canada this past week... after the initial launch in the US last June (almost 6 months later).

I'm guess they are permanent now because with such a delayed launch outside the US they where probably only recent thinking of expanding it to the full line of products and tweaking the labeling as well.

Wolfe FX Hydrocolor Makeup in Essential, Metallix, Skinz, and Blacklight : Swatches & Review

Wolfe FX Hydrocolor Makeup in Essential, Metallix, and Blacklight.
These Hydrocolor makeup come in 4 sizes I have mostly the Appetizer 5g / .17 oz for $3US and $4CAN for the regular shades and $4US and $5CAN for the metallics.

But the retail prices run at Small 30g / 1 oz for 8US and $10.50CAN, Medium 45g / 1.5 oz for $11US and $14.50CAN, and Large 90g / 3 oz for $19US and $25 to $28 CAN.

The pre-made palette retail for $30US for the 12 pan (Appetizer) which comes to 2 thin paint brushes, I've got my 2 palettes from anywhere from $28CAN to $40CAN. $16US and $21CAN for the 6 Appetizer palette which comes with 1 thin paint brush. These are the best way to purchase the Appetizer pans if you're looking to have a number of shades in a smaller pan size.

The only overlap between these pre-packed palettes was the shade 019 Saddle Brown in the Essential 12 pan and the Skinz 6 pan palettes to keep aware of.
I grabbed all the original core shades they came out with except 085 Plum.

But Wolfe FX has recently added a colour expansion to their line in the Essential and Metallix shade range. I'm not sure when I'll get those as I buy my Hydrocolor Makeup through local Southern Ontario Vendors and it takes awhile for the to restock as it more of an "as needed" shipments to their stores. I really want a Large of Bone!

Kevyn Aucoin The Contour Book The Art of Sculpting + Defining Volume I : Swatches & Review

Kevyn Aucoin The Contour Book The Art of Sculpting + Defining

BUT the Kevyn Aucoin The Contour Book The Art of Sculpting + Defining Volume II is on for $64US and $78CAN which does contain more product with the addition of cream and larger highlight and contour pans but smaller eyeshadow pans. You get 0.17 oz The Celestial Powder in Candlelight , 0.04 oz The Celestial Powder in Starlight 0.16 oz The Creamy Glow in Candlelight, 0.16 oz The Sculpting Cream, 0.16 oz, The Candlelight Cream 0.14 oz The Sculpting Powder, 4 x 0.04 oz Eyeshadow.

The reason I mention this is the product are identical to the first Kevyn Aucoin The Contour Book (minus the creme products) so volume 2 is a much better deal product wise.

Hard Candy 20th Anniversary Top Ten Eyeshadow Collection palette in Sky's the Limit : Swatches & Review

PURCHASED
Hard Candy 20th Anniversary Top Ten Eyeshadow Collection palette in Sky's the Limit
Retails for $6US or $6.99CAN for 2.96 oz worth of product at Walmart. This collection contains retro shades from the original Hard Candy line which had a lot of pastel tones to work with. It was the baby sister to Urban Decay back when the brand was owned by UD and in general had a softer girly branding compared to UD's edgy style.

You can find this product in a pile on the bottom shelf of the Hard Candy displays or with the other Top Ten Eyeshadow Collection palettes if you store doesn't have the end cap display. This collection came in later to a number of Canadian stores so you can still find it in store.

PURCHASED / AFFILIATE LINKS

Personally I think it's great they are offering up some of the jewel tone shades from collections past.

IMATS TORONTO 2015 New date and location! : new venders, Interesting panel/demos, my wish list, travel advisory & eateries.

IMATS TORONTO 2015 New date and location!
It's arriving early this year (by almost 2 months!), but IMATS Toronto is running on September 26 to 27th less then 2 weeks away! There are still have tickets for both days for the Saturday and Sunday shows for $45. No weekend pass though this time around.

The new date probably was due to the weather in late November, so that products don't run into freezing issues while being shipping into Canada as every year it is crap shoot whether it's raining or snow at that time of the year.

Chances are I'll be arrive at 9:30am or 10am on the Saturday just from the way construction is progressing as I'm coming down (well going north ;) ) by Greyhound.

BUT NYX PRO is coming to the show this year. I'm not sure if they will bring their full product line but if it is mostly there newer product range I'm going to be happy to see them in person after a 4 year absence from Toronto IMATS! ;)

The L'Oreal Lumiere Color Riche Eyeshadows lunched last year in the US and where limited edition from what I could tell. These two shade I'm sure are LE but I'm crossing my finger we might see this formula become permanent to the line.
