Lipstick Queen Chess Collection "Rook"

I'm new to the brand Lipstick Queen, but after having tried one of their lipsticks... I'm hooked! It's name is a good representation of it. I enjoy using a variety of lip products but once I find one that I LOVE, it's a repurchase and will stay in my "favourites" collection. This definitely made it in.


This Lipstick Queen lipstick is part of the soon-to-be released Lipstick Chess Collection, which is a take on modern must-have lip colours that are dark or nude. Classic colours like a classic game of chess. There are six shades and each lipstick is named after a chess piece: King, Queen, Rook, Bishop, Knight, and Pawn. I have the one called Rook*. It is enriched with natural waxes, oils, and Vitamin E, making it very comfortable to wear and smooth to apply.

Chicken Quiche Recipe


One of my new year goals was to cook a meal for my parents once a week. I've done it for the past three weeks so far and it has been great! For someone who doesn't enjoy cooking as much as others (aka me), it truly does feel like an accomplishment each time.

Today I'm sharing with you the recipe for a chicken quiche! It was quite good, and you can always have breakfast food anytime.

Benefit Goof Proof Brow Pencil

My brows are on point with the help of the Benefit Goof Proof Brow Pencil Easy Shape & Fill.


Where to buy: Sephora, Shoppers Drug Mart

Cost: $30

Packaging: The pencil is double ended: one side is the twist-up nib, the other is a spooly. I really like the look of the modern geometric caps!

Inglot AMC Pure Pigment Eyeshadows (The Star in You Collection)

Never did I imagine that I would be filming a video for you. I know that I can be an awkward turtle in front of a camera but thanks to DubDub and their team, I was able to shoot my very first video! Everything was done using their DubSuite app on my phone: filming, editing, and publishing! I don't know when will be the next time I produce another video, but nonetheless it was a great experience to see and do the work that goes into making one.. and believe me, it's a lot more than you think.

At the DubLoft studio in Toronto, I also got the opportunity to check out Inglot's newest makeup products. Out of all, I really liked the Inglot AMC Pure Pigment Eyeshadows from their new The Star In You Collection. A light wash of these loose pigment powders over the lids creates a shimmery (but not over the top) look. It's so pretty, and like the name of the collection it shines like the stars in a night sky! I know it's cheesy but it's true. :P They can also be intensified by adding duraline to make it into a liquid formula. Even in the pot or on the lids, the pigments have a duochrome effect since the colour changes in different angles, but it's not dramatic. These eyeshadows along with the other releases from the Star In You Collection have been added to the permanent line of Inglot's makeup! You can purchase them through the video by clicking on the tags and it will take you to the Amazon page.


Hope you enjoyed watching! Should I continue doing more videos in the future?

Until next time, Des
