New In | Sexton In The City Cosmetics

Friday, May 22, 2015


Hey Beauties! 

Being such a massive fan of all things beauty, I always have my sights set on trying new products, brands and trends. Everywhere I go, I somehow always find myself at a beauty counter playing with lipsticks and blushes. 

One of my favourite stores for fashion is Sexton In The City, a boutique in Hamilton, that just happens to have a pretty amazing beauty counter. I have featured Sexton a few times in the past and after falling in love with their accessories I knew I wanted to try some of their beauty products. I was in the midst of planning a trip to SITC when the lovely Natalie herself invited me to stop by and test out a few products. 

Sexton In The City is the brainchild of Natalie Sexton, professional makeup artist, blogger and fashion expert for the Marilyn Denis Show. The brand was started in 2012 with their exclusive cosmetics line and has grown to become the ultimate one stop shop for everything a girl could need. Natalie has created a dream shopping experience where you can pick out an outfit, top it off with the perfect accessories and then add the finishing touches with an array of makeup. 

The Sexton In The City collection has absolutely everything a makeup lover or beginner could imagine from primers and bases to blushes, liners and liquid lipsticks. Natalie was sweet enough to gift me 3 lipsticks, a foundation and an eyeliner and after playing with all three I want to share my favourites with you. 


The High Definition Liquid Flawless Finish Foundation ($45) is a truly gorgeous liquid foundation that gives a beautiful, naturally flawless finish with medium coverage. It is a water based, non-comodegenic formula that contains Vitamin E and Wheat Germ, which helps to heal blemishes and improve skin elasticity. 

It is a lightweight foundation that blends beautifully. A tiny bit goes a long way to create a nice sheer layer but can be easily built up without streaking or clumping on the skin. It practically melts into the skin and becomes one with your complexion. It perfects the little problems but still looks and feels like skin. It comes in a great range of shades with a variety of neutral and yellow undertones.


Of course, I was most excited to try the lipsticks and I was lucky enough to receive three; Plum Berry, Glamour Puss and Hippie. The Sexton In The City lipsticks($20) come in three different finishes, offering a range of matte, cream and high gloss shades. The formula varies for each finish but all three are enhanced with Vitamin E to soothe and condition lips. 


{Plum Berry - Glamour Puss - Hippie}


Plum Berry is a stunning deep purple berry shade with a hint of red. It is a cream base with a bit of shimmer that applies slightly sheer but builds up to have gorgeous depth. 


Glamour Puss is a gorgeous classic red with a hint of orange that has become my new favourite red lip. It is a cream that has intense pigmentation and glides on opaque in one quick swipe. 


Hippie is the perfect shade for summer. A glossy peach that catches the light and makes lips look plump and healthy. It is a sheer formula but only slightly so it still gives off a really impressive pop of colour. It's the perfect lipstick to throw in your bag for a day out in the sun. 

All three of the lipsticks have really beautiful formulations, they are creamy and smooth and apply evenly. I love that they are buildable and even the sheer shades have really impressive pigmentation. They also smell like MAC lipsticks which might just be my favourite smell in the world. 

Overall I was really impressed by the Sexton In The City cosmetics range. Every product is absolutely beautiful and you can tell that they are made with love and care. The quality is fantastic it's so nice that everything is made in Canada. If you are looking to branch out and try something new, I highly recommend giving SITC a chance. You can stop by their boutique located at 789 King St West in Hamilton Ontario or pick up a few gems on their website at www.sextoninthecity.ca
