Easy Valentine's Day Makeup 2019 | Smokey Eyes and Plum lips

Here's a quick makeup look for valentine's day that I created using some of the new products that I received from Lancome, Shiseido, Laura Mercier and Wunderbrow as PR samples. I decided to go for a darker lip color than I usually do for my valentine's day makeup looks.

Moose Knuckles 3Q Ladies Jacket Unboxing

I've collaborated with Moose Knuckles to unbox their 3Q Ladies Jacket. I chose the color deep red with black fur and got it in size small. The size was perfect. I did try it on in this video to show you how it looks and for height reference, I'm 5'3". I also gave my first impressions on the jacket.
Moose Knuckles 3Q Ladies Jacket is a quilted jacket that has a length in between the bomber and parka offering warmth and protection. It features a detachable, fur-trimmed hood and zippered side pockets. It retails for $995 CAD and you can buy it online directly from their website. The jacket is shipped from Canada and taxes/duties are calculated for you. It's also available in stores at some retailers. Click here to locate the store near you.
Color Chosen: Deep Red
Size Chosen: Small
  • Cotton Nylon Water Repellent Outershell 
  • 100% down proof nylon lining
  • 80/20 Duck Down Loft 650 cc per oz
  • Heavy Duty YKK Front and Sleeve Zippers
  • Detachable Hood
  • Draw Cord at hood with fox fur
  • Placket with button closure
  • Metal Logo on sleeve
  • Pockets: Two front button pockets | One sleeve pocket | Two internal pockets
  • Made in Canada with imported materials
  • 29” back length 
  • Size Available XS - XXL
  • Colors available: Army, Black, Granite, Green Ash, Jasper Blue, Navy, Redwood, Snow White

The jacket features a detachable hood and Draw Cord at hood with fox fur.
On one of the sleeves, there's the classic Moose Knuckles metal logo. The color is chosen at random during the final touches. You may get one of the following colors: Nickel, Gunmetal and matte black. 
Overall, I think it's a great and practical jacket. I wore it recently during my trip to Toronto and I loved the way it looks. I'm so glad I chose the color deep red. The number of pockets available in this jacket are very convenient especially during my trip because I was able to go out without my bag and take on my wallet, keys, lipstick and any other necessary items.

It's been getting very cold here in Montreal, so I had the chance to test this jacket out to see if it's warm enough for our Canadian winter. I'm so glad it is and it has become a great winter addition.
