How long has it been since my last lipstick post?! I’ve tried many different brands of lipsticks before, and I can’t believe I haven’t used Laura Mercier lip products before! The Laura Mercier Rouge Essentiel Silky Crème Lipstick ($42 CAD) recently arrived at the door and one of the reds, Rouge Profond is perfect for the Autumn transition.
Among my friends, I am pretty much known for enjoying anything ginger flavoured. This is probably because my stomache is as soft as tofu so I am sensitive to many foods, and anything ginger will calm me down immensely.

After exhausting weeks of work and a 15 day Europe trip, I’m back and can’t wait to share my Europe beauty haul! I stopped at London, Edinburgh, York, Paris, and Amsterdam and picked up some beauty products along the way.
