Spring is almost here and it’s safe to say that I’m 100% over everything to do with winter. The weather, my winter wardrobe and winter makeup and did I mention the weather? I’ve retired my winter clothes and I’ve now stashed away all of the “winter-ey” makeup to make room for new spring arrivals.
One of my favourite new spring arrivals is this collection from Dior. Doesn’t looking at it just make you happier? I have the two pink shades of lipstick and lipgloss (the dark and the light) on constant rotation right now. If you’re not one for splurging on the more expensive makeup brands and always stick to drug store brands, you’re not alone. Alot of my makeup collection is not expensive. However, if you try out these lipsticks and lipglosses you will see why sometimes it’s nice to spend a little extra. They go on smoother, creamier, and help to moisturize your lips that may be still dry and cracked (like mine are) from the cold weather. They also last longer. Check out the pictures below.
ROUGE DIOR COUTURE COLOUR VOLUPTUOUS LIPSTICK in a variety of shades.
New PERFECT DOSE RESERVOIR GLOSS in 775 DARLING (Fuschia), 468 DARLING (Light Pink) 808 VICTOIRE (Coral).
DIOR VERNIS in CORIAL, PINK & ROSE.
The other new spring arrival I couldn’t wait to share with you all is the newest fragrance by Dolce & Gabanna, Floral Drops. The fragrance features top notes of neroli leaves and papaya flower. Heart notes of white amaryllis, white daffodil and white water lily. Base notes of cashmeran, musky notes and sandalwood. The bottle features a sculpted flower cap with milky white petals and frosted glass in a misty green, all tied with a pretty black bow.
Basically, this fragrance smells like you bottled up a garden party. It’s fresh, floral and all kinds of lovely. I’ll be sporting this one all spring long!
Happy St. Patrick’s Day weekend! We’ve put together a little display to help you get the party started!
The key to the perfect St. Patty’s Party? Green food, green drinks and green decor. Sounds pretty simple right?
We found some great party options at the Dollar Store and Michael’s. The drinks are a mix of green juice with your favourite alcohol mix, a dash of Perrier and garnish with some lime.
These cupcakes are store bought and we decorated with some green sprinkles and sparkly shamrocks. But, if you have some time you can make your own cupcakes from scratch.
Our favourite part are these shamrock party straws. Does it get any cuter than that?
Straws, Ribbon, Shamrock Cupcake Toppers & St. Patrick’s figurines are all from Michael’s.
This weekend Pink the Town hosted a Glitter Doughnut Party at Le Dolci Cupcakes in Cakes in Toronto. Thanks to all of the lovely ladies that came out to join in the fun!
The event started with chef Emily from Le Dolci walking us all through a doughnut workshop, including making the dough, cutting the doughnut shapes, deep frying the doughnuts and my favourite part – decorating with edible sparkles and glitter!

This week was the launch of Benefit’s newest creation: Roller Lash. I definitely have a bit of a mascara obsession, so I was super excited to test this new one out. It promises to deliver visible lift and long-lasting curl, while making eyes appear more wide open. The result? 100% worth the purchase.
I didn’t use an eyelash curler and after applying the mascara, my lashes did appear completely curled and lifted. I was incredibly impressed that the curl stayed put all day long until I was ready for bed. Since it has staying power, I was little concerned that it was going to be difficult to remove, but I used my regular cleanser (Simple Moisturizing Facial Wash) and the mascara came right off. No extra wiping was needed and it actually removed easier than alot of my other mascaras.
Check out the pictures and results below.
Left Eye: No mascara. No eyelash curler. Right Eye: No eyelash curler. Benefit Roller Lash Mascara is applied to upper lashes.
Both Eyes: Benefit Roller Lash is applied to upper lashes only. No eyelash curler used.
Will you be trying out new Benefit Roller Lash?
