There’s a good chance that if you read my blog, you love lipstick just as much as I do. Today I’m elated to continue to the lipstick lovefest here at JustineCelina and have teamed up with Sephora Canada to bring you my favourite 5 Festive Lipsticks to try this Holiday Season! Whether you’re a red lip connoisseur or you’re still searching for your perfect shade, there’s truly something for everyone in this post. I personally believe that a great red lipstick possesses some sort of magical power — anytime I swipe one of these shades on I instantly feel more confident, empowered and beautiful!
I’m sharing my top red lip picks across categories and in a variety shades, finishes and formulas — there’s been some serious red lipstick testing going down at JustineCelina headquarters lately! If you’re feeling bold this season, I’ve also included some on-trend metallic lip options ranging from all the way from subtle to full-on glitter (which surprisingly is more wearable than you may think!). If your lipstick game could use a festive touch this holiday season I’ve totally got you covered — grab a peppermint mocha let’s chat about some of my favourite red lip options for Holiday 2016 this weekend!
Don’t you just love limited edition holiday beauty releases? It’s that magical time of year when brands really seem to step up their game and create so many exclusive products, and value-packed offerings. If you’ve been with me for awhile, you’ll know that I really love Bite Beauty — a Canadian lip-exclusive brand who’s products are made with natural, food grade ingredients that are actually good for your lips. I’ve mentioned previously that Bite’s Luminous Crème Lipsticks are my all time favourite lipsticks — every year I love to pick up these mini duos. They last me until the next year! Today I’m reviewing all 12 shades from the Mix n’ Mingle range for Holiday 2015. If you’re in the market for some great new lipsticks, or looking for gift ideas, you’ve come to the right place!
It’s the most wonderful time of the year — limited edition holiday beauty releases are here! But seriously, I think this is the best time of year for beauty lovers and am thrilled to be sharing my hit list for Holiday 2016 in partnership with Sephora Canada. If you’ve been reading JustineCelina since last year, you may remember me covering holiday beauty releases in a series of posts — well, today I’m combining all my holiday beauty recommendations into one mega post to help inform all your holiday beauty purchases!

This comprehensive guide for the beauty obsessed is an overarching look at my favourite holiday-exclusive products and value packed offerings across categories. Grab a pen and paper (and maybe your credit card!), fix yourself a festive cocktail and let’s chat about a few of my favourite beauty things this holiday season!
December was a blur! Between preparing for holidays and then holidays themselves, December always seems to fly by so fast. Last month I traveled all over Alberta visiting family and friends, and definitely noticed myself reaching for the same products consistently. It was pretty simple for me to choose my December beauty favourites — I just had to look inside my travel makeup bag!
Last month I discovered a genius product that lightens foundation to suit winter skintones, my to-go holiday lip, a blush that gives you that ‘just in from the cold’ look, some really unique eyeshadows and long-wearing, affordable eyeliners! Curl up, get cozy and let’s chat about winter beauty!
November was a pretty low-key month for me, beauty wise. I discovered a few new products, but in colours that I know work for me. Otherwise, I’ve been sticking to what I know — which is what tends to happen when I’m super busy.
In November I got my glow on, rediscovered my signature winter scent, found a game changing pair of tweezers, an eyeshadow that makes simple smokey eyes a breeze, a no fuss nude lipstick for winter, and the most flattering liquid lipstick, ever! I also picked up a bunch of new products (yep… definitely took advantage of the Sephora VIB Sale!), so get ready for lots of holiday beauty posts, coming to JustineCelina soon!
Hey guys! Today I’m sharing April’s most loved beauty products. Overall, I was into cooler tones (which is strange for me!). Since I have warm colouring and green eyes, I tend to favour warm colours on both the eyes and lips — last month I gravitated towards purples and cooler neutrals overall. I also played around with lots of different eye looks, eyeliner and eyeshadow. Let’s chat beauty!
Trying a new lip colour is such a fun way to refresh your look, and today I’m sharing my 6 of my favourites for spring — including 2 natural options to celebrate Earth Day! From beautiful inexpensive lipsticks to luxurious splurge-worthy items, I’ve selected a variety of shades and formulas — from sheer gloss to full-on colour in a fresh spring palette.
