Joggers

Oh joggers, the ‘cute sweatpant’. That is really what they are. If you think about it, joggers are meant for running and when you don’t run they are meant for lying around the house. The fashion jogger is just a cute version of sweatpants that are socially acceptable.

I totally forgot that I owned these ones until I was going through my drawer that has the clothes I don’t wear too often. As soon as I saw them I was like ‘Okay Lilly, these look Spring-y and the weather feels Spring-y so lets style them asap!’. I wore them with staples of mine; a black high neck shirt, sneakers and a longline black coat.

NYX Haul

NYX cosmetics is finally in Canada! Well, that is old news but the not so old news is that I recently visited their location on Queen St in Toronto. Very small store, but HUGE selection of makeup. It was like I went to makeup heaven. Before the arrival of NYX stores in Canada, there was a small selection of cosmetics at Rexall and Shoppers, and I mean small selection. Needless to say, I’m happy NYX has arrived with their full range of products.

Let’s get into it; I bought their colour correcting powder (banana shade), HD concealer, soft matte lip cream and a duo fibre foundation brush.

So far the brush applies foundation really well and evenly, my only comment is that the bristles shed and it looks like I have little black eyelashes on my face. I have been using the powder over my under-eye concealer and I can’t say that I notice a huge difference in colour correcting but it leaves my skin looking smooth and shine-free. I haven’t had a chance to wear the lip cream yet but I have heard so many good things about the product (long lasting, great colour). I’ll post on my Instagram when I wear it so you can see the amazing colour and finish!

The latest beauty trend is colour correcting, so naturally, I had to give it a try. It feels slightly odd to put green concealer all over my face, after I first applied it I asked myself ‘will I look like Shrek after I’m done my makeup?’ I use a real technique buffing brush to blend it out and it does cover the redness I have on my cheeks, chin and forehead (where all my pimples are). It leaves a mint tint to your skin but that all goes away once you apply foundation.

Overall, I am happy with all my purchases and would recommend them to you! ALSO, if you’re in the area of Downtown Toronto or Mississauga (Square One Shopping Centre  you can visit the NYX store for yourself. Be prepared to swatch and spend some money. Comment below any of your NYX favs!
