Get the Look with New York Color

Disclaimer: The products featured were provided for review.
In celebration of the first New York Color Canada #NYCBeautyPro anniversary, I wanted to share with you a simple look using a couple of classic products from the brand. 

Starting with a beautiful bright red lipstick called "Traffic Jam" ($1.99 CAD), I went on with a simple black liner called the HD Automatic Waterproof Eyeliner ($4.49 CAD). The liner is creamy and smooth and it has a convenient twist-up mechanism. To finish off the look I used a great matte bronzer called the Smooth Skin Bronzing Powder in "Sunny" ($4.99 CAD). The color is impressively finely-milled and pigmented, just a little gives the cheeks a healthy glow!

Best Carefree Hacks & Coupons for Free Carefree Products

Disclaimer: This is a sponsored post.

For my Carefree Giveaway last month, I've asked you guys to share some of your best Carefree pad hacks and I received some ingenious ideas! Who knew a simple period pad can be used for so many different purposes? So today I want to share with you a few of my favorite responses:

"They would work as a bandage in an emergency!" -Ivy

"I use carefree liners as insoles in my heels. 
It's great because they stick nicely inside of my shoes and don't slip!" -Cara 

"I would use liners to waterproof and hold water in my hanging plant baskets in the summer. 
That way if you are away or forget to water for a day or two, 
your plants will still have moisture locked in!" -Lorin

"I have wet them, froze them, and used them as cold packs."-Jonnie

So there you have it, what great ways to use Carefree pads! Thanks to everyone who shared a hack! If you weren't one of the winners you can still test out some free Careefree products by signing up for the "Take the Pledge to Protect" newsletter here.
