Maybelline New York Color Show Khol Liners Review & Swatches

Maybelline Color Show Khol liners sparkle grey, Chambray Blue,Chocolate Chip

For days where I don't feel like putting much effort into my makeup I always love to wear coloured eyeliner for pops of colour. I have many brands that I would say offer a wide variety of Eyeliners that apply smoothly while giving me the pops of colour or even a neutral look that I want. The one brand that is both inexpensive and top quality is Maybelline Color Show Crayon Khol Liners. Maybelline Color Show Crayon Khol Liners are offered in 12 shades from Neutrals to Brights Colours.

They are the hottest on trend way of creating statement looks with creamy textures saturated pigments that lasts for hours. With the Color Show liners you are able to have a little bit of play time where you can apply the liner and smudge it out if you are looking for a soft sultry look. After smudging you still will have long lasting wear ability.

What I love about the Maybelline Color Show liners is the fact that is glides so easily. There is no tugging on the eyelids and there is no need to repeatedly reapply the liners for opacity.

These retails for $5.99 and are a part of Maybelline's permanent line.

The colours pictured here are:

Sparkle Grey- A shimmery Grey
Chambray Blue- Bright saturated Baby Blue (my favourite out of the 3)
Chocolate Chip- Deep Matte Brown

Cover Girl Flamed out shadow pencil swatches

Cover girl flamed out eye shadow pencils

Hey everyone, I have so many eye shadow pencils but I never use them nearly as much as I should. Awhile back I received quite a few of Cover Girl's Flamed out eye shadow pencils and I finally got around to playing around with them. Eye shadow pencils come in really handy and add alot of depth to the eyes when applying eye shadow. But for me its not something that I reach for very often. Mostly because I just forget that they are there.
However now that summer is here and its alot hotter outside, I look for methods that make my eye makeup last alot longer by layering products that will add pop to the look and make my shadows adhere to my lids longer. The Cover girl flamed out eye shadow pencils are nothing short of awesome. They don't feel heavy on the lids and the last a really long time when worn alone as well.

The finish however might be scary to some. I wouldn't advise wearing these pencils unless you are wearing a shimmer or satin finish shadow mainly because if its worn with a matte it may create and flaky finish which you may not be going for that type of look. There are 10 shades to choose from the Cover girl flamed out eye shadow pencils.

Below are 6 of the shades that I currently own and love.
What are your thoughts on the Cover girl flamed out eye shadow pencils do you own any? Let me know in the comments below

#Manicure Monday| Sally Hansen Triple Shine Tahiti Sunset Collection: Pink Coconut



Its Manicure Monday and I wanted to share with you a beautiful manicure perfect for the sunny days we have. Sally Hansen's Tahiti Collection Pink Coconut is a Bright Pink shade perfect for all skin tones. I love this colour for many reasons its perfect for a pop of colour when wearing a more toned down outfit but its also very feminine for those just getting into nail polish. I applied 2 coats of this polish.

What are your favourite colours to wear during the summer season?

Sally Hansen Triple Shine Tropical Delight Collection| Review & Swatches

 Here is another collection from Sally Hansen that I wanted to share with you called the Tropical Delight Collection. There are actually 5 shades in this collection and not 4. The shade names are

*Jell-ous - Berry Red
*Ice Tint- Ice Blue
Water MelonPinkish Red
Sea Through - Sea Green almost Emrald
Vitamin-D light- Orange Red

This collection is quite unique because you have the option to wear the colours certain ways. For a more understated look for the office perhaps you would only need to apply 1 coat as I have done in the swatches shown. However if you are looking for a more opaque look then you would need to apply 3-4 shades which would also mean a longer drying time. The Sally Hansen Triple Shine Tropical Delight Collection is a Jelly Base that is meant to give the nails a hint of tint and high shine. 
I found that the Tropical Delight Collection was quite similar to OPI's Sheer Tints collection as well as Dior's Rosy Glow for the nails however The Tropical Delight Collection is much more cost efficient for those who don't want to spend an arm and leg for lacquers.
Sally Hansen Ice Tint & Jell-ous

This is definitely a collection that you need in your collection as they look great for a subtly hint of colour or you could layer a few coats and you can even layer it on top of a white base. Try it out!
I forgot to mention that they are super affordable to at $6.95 CAD.

What do you think of this collection let me know in the comments below

Always #LikeaGirl


This post is somewhat different to ones that you normally see here on Boldnbeautifulmakeup. Today's post is something that is really important. Being a mother of 3 kids two of them being girls this campaign was something that I felt the need to share with every young girls or woman that reads my blog. I feel that we as women need to be empowered and support one another. I wanted to share some really important statistics.


56% of girls lose confidence during puberty and redefine what it means to do something #LikeaGirl
You run like a girl.

You throw like a girl.

You blog like a girl.

According to the new Always Confidence and Puberty Study, only 19% of girls have a positive association with the phrase “like a girl.”

It’s time for a change.  Always is rallying girls from across the globe to redefine the meaning of doing something #LikeaGirl from an insult to an expression of strength, talent, character and downright awesomeness.

Directed by Lauren Greenfield, winner of the Sundance Film Festival Directing Award for her documentary, “The Queen of Versailles” in 2012, the #LikeaGirl social experiment captures how doing something like a girl changes as they grow up and how a bit of encouragement can go a long way in changing what it means to be proud to be a girl, and do things like a girl.

Be part of the movement and share the video because you are a girl.

Be you.  #LikeaGirl






So for all my Canadian readers I would love you to share your #likeagirl experience using the #likeagirl  & #boldnbeautifulmakeup hashtag on Instagram and follow the rafflecopter rules below once you do that,
I will then pick a winner after viewing the hashtag and blog comments and the winner will receive their own Run #likeagirl t-shirt and an Always product.

Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Sea Bloom Collection swatches

*All products in this post were sent for review purposes


Another collection that I have fallen in love with this summer is the Sea Bloom Collection from the Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear line. This collection is inspired by the pretty pastels and muted hues found under the sea. This collection includes 8 on trend Oceanic Shades. The Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear line is formulated with a Micro shine complex to help strengthen manicures to last up to 7 days without chipping. 

I really love all the of the shades from the Sea Bloom Collection. The application process was quite easy too. Although I did find that Wet Suit applied a little streaky although 2 coats were applied. I also found this to be the same result when I applied Pearl Up. Given the price of these polishes $2.47 CAD I am not at all picky with the two that I had a little difficulty with. I would definitely recommend this collection to nail enthusiasts starting out. The two colours not pictured here are Kelp yourself and Peach Babe.  

*These polishes can be found at Walmart for a Limited time Only!

Sally Hansen Insta Dry Kaleidoscope Collection| Limited Edition



Sally Hansen is know as America's #1 nail expert. With a number of different lines within their nail polish the Insta Dry line is amazing. The quick dry 60 sec dry time in fact is true to its name. As well with just one stroke you can get the most pigmentation that you would normally achieve with 2-3 coats. 

The Sally Hansen Kaleidoscope collection is a 70's inspired collection of soft saturated expressive shades. With 6 colours to choose from. The Shades I will be showing you today are

Glow With it- a bright yellow creme with subtle shimmer
Love Train- a bright pink creme with a blue base
Purpelling- a deep lilac purple creme

The Insta dry lines are one of my favourites from Sally Hansen, I love the fact that the bristles are alot wider than most which allows me to even distribute the nail colour in one stroke. Now the fact that it dries completely withing 60 seconds is another awesome plus because sometimes when you are in a rush and know that long dry times result in smudges and dents in the nails. This is the perfect formula to go with.

The Sally Hansen Insta Dry Limited edition Kaleidoscope collection can be found at mass retailers for $4.95 as of July 2014

Sally Hansen Hard As Nails Xtreme Wear Rio Collection| Beach Ball & Fruit-Ta-Ta

*Products shown in this post were sent to reviewing purposes


This Summer 2014 Sally Hansen has released a number of collection to get any nail enthusiast excited. Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear's Rio collection is a matte glitter collection inspired by the fun festive spirits of Rio. This collection includes 8 glitter packed nail polish top coats which is easily suitable over your favourite Nude, Bright, Neon, Deep hues or even just worn alone for a fun Manicure.


Fruit-Ta-Ta- is a Jelly based glitter with Matte black, pastel pink,white and red hex glitter. The consistency of this base is a little tricky because not alot of the glitter applied to the nail and I found that I had to use a light dabbing method in order to distribute the amount of glitter that I wanted. Fruit-Ta-Ta is best layered over colours like Red, Black, White, or in swatch I have layered it over Sally Hansen's Xtreme Wear polish in Floaties, from the Sea Bloom Collection which I will speak of in another post.

Beach Ball- Is also a jelly base clear coat with Matte white, blue and red perfect for the 4th of July manicures. This one too has a more runny consistency and I also used the dabbing method in order to place the Hex glitter where I wanted them to be. As for colours that would be best to compliment this glitter top coat you could use cobalt blues, Navy's, Red, White. Or again I used Floaties from the Sea Bloom Collection.

My Thoughts
I love the fact that this glitter combo offers a matte finish. When you hear glitter most people think of a disco ball. So, to be able to still wear a glitter without it looking loud is a great thing. I do have to say that I was not a fan of the consistency of the base, I found that it could have been alot more thicker which in turn would have made the application process much easier as far as the amount that would be needed to get enough glitter to apply to the nail and the fact that you wouldn't have to worry about applying a million coats and then have to wait for hours for it to dry and not smudge. Overall I love the collection and the colours and would definitely suggest them to other nail enthusiasts.

OOTD| Beach life

Hey everyone! guess where I am as I type away at this post? I'm in punta cana dominican republic. For the next week you will see a few posts while I'm here on vacation for a wedding I'm attending and doing makeup for.

Anyway I wanted to share with you what I'll be wearing to the beach today to enjoy the hot Sun and cold drinks (all inclusive)

My bathing suit I purchased 2 years ago but never wore from Forever 21, the shades 3 for $10 and flip flops $6 are from Urban Planet. Also I cannot stress the importance of wearing sunscreen to protect our skin from UV rays. Especially in hot places such as where I am, the sun is ten times hotter here. Today I'll be using L'Oréal 's Sublime Sun Invisible Protect sheer spray sunscreen with an SPF 50. I'm normally allergic to SPF so I will see how it works out for me.

Until then see you soon!

L'Oreal Voluminous Miss Manga Mascara| Review

L'Oreal has recently launched a new Limited Edition Mascara called Miss Manga, inspired by the funky culture of Japan. With a fun-loving attitude the Miss Manga mascara envelops lashes into mega volume for a flirty wide eyed look. The formula of this mascara is infused with collagen spheres and a trilogy of polymers that stick to your lashes which makes them look large and in charge. The final look of this mascara is will leave you looking like a Kawaii Doll.
The Mascara comes in 4 shades to choose from Black, Purple, Turquoise and Electric Blue
Retails for $10.99 CAD



MY THOUGHTS/REVIEW:

I really loved how this mascara coated my lashes without looking spidery. I was able to apply a few coats to give my lashes are good amount of volume considering my lashes are ones that grow in all sorts of directions. I did find however that it gave my lashes quite a bit of length too along with the volume.

The Black mascara was a very rich matte black it didn't give my lashes that glossy finish that I hate and the Purple Mascara was deep enough and pigmented enough that you could tell that it was a violet colour.


The applicator wand has a 360 degree wand which allows for maximum amplified top lashes. The cone shape tip of the wand is for maximizing the lower lashes giving you a flake free 15x volume look all day.


Have you tried this new mascara from L'Oreal what are your thoughts on it? Let me know in the comments below
