Getting the right nude shade to match your skin tone isn’t always easy. As a matter of fact, if you’re very pale or have deep skin, it can be downright messy.
If you want to jump on the nude trend, there’s good beauty news. Maybelline’s Color Sensational The Buff Collection covers a wide range of nude shades and is available now at drugstores.
The permanent lipstick edition available in Canada includes eight very wearable colors for all occasions:
* Bare All (light beige)
* Truffle Tease (light peach beige)
* Blushing Beige (light peach)
* Nude Lust (medium peach); check out popular beauty blogger Maskcara for details on this shade
* Maple Kiss (copper brown)
* Stormy Sahara (medium orange)
* Untainted Spice (dark spice)
* Espresso Exposed (burgundy)
These nude lipsticks glide on super easy and are surprisingly moisturizing. If you like a creamy finish, you’ll love the texture of this hot lip color collection from Maybelline.

For spring 2014, Yves Saint Laurent is offering a brand new take on lip gloss.
First, the formula for YSL Gloss Volupte is light yet intensely glossy creating extreme shine and radiant color. It also features balm-like moisturization.
Second, the applicator, which comes in an ultra-slim tube, is one-of-a-kind with a hole in the centre of the wand. The innovative applicator is designed to hold just the right amount of gloss to cover your whole mouth whether you have Angelina Jolie lips or lips like the rest of us. The curve and the tip help to distribute the gloss evenly and accurately for maximum coverage.
Do you secretly lust after Crème de la Mer, but would never pay the outrageous price of $170.00.
Well, now you can try La Mer The Lip Balm at a more reasonable price ($55 CAD).
Is lip balm at that price ever worth it? Considering the record-busting temps this winter and the fact that your lips are more thin-skinned than any other area of your face, you may want to make sure that your lip balm does the job.
If you have a beauty or style addict on your gift-giving list, here are a few last minute gifts that should fit the bill.

3. Ellie Mae Jewellery
I came across Ellie Mae bracelets through a contest on Jillian Harris’ site: jillianharris.com.
I love the combination of semi-precious stones that are sourced globally and merged with gold filled, sterling silver, and rose gold metals. Each handmade piece also offers natural healing powers and energy.
