Makeup Junkie Loves...Cougar Boots!

Yes, the 2 stylish boots you're looking at are from the classic brand Cougar Boots! Back in the day, they weren't known for being fashionable, although I kinda like the old camel-coloured construction looking boots. Cougar Boots were made for our Canadian harsh winters, making sure our footsies stayed nice and toasty all winter long. Now that the brand has established the warm and durability factor, Cougar Boots figured why not keep warm and look stylish too? 

I was really excited to be apart of the Matchstick program and test drive these lovely booties. I always have a hard time shopping for boots whether it's for rain, snow, or work because I can't fit into most boots. I have been "blessed" with unusually big calves for someone who is petite. I can never find boots that fit my calves so you can imagine how frustrating it can be.

Cougar Regal Rain Boots ($85 CAD): As you can tell from the above photo, I've been getting a lot of use out of these boots. I was actually in the market for new rain boots that didn't look like a traditional rain boot. I love the biker feel to it - it makes any outfit look edgier. I've been wearing this whether it's been rain or shine and happy to report it keeps my feet nice and warm in the wet weather. It has a polar fleece lining and can withstand temperatures from 0 degrees C to - 24 degrees C. Perfect choice for those slushy winter days as well. They are also super comfy and the best part is that they fit my calves! As you can see, they are pretty snug but if I can get my foot in it's a keeper! The boots also give me a bit more height so that's a bonus. And what can I say - I love black! The shiny rubber material makes it easy to clean and it's waterproof.

The green logo on the back adds a nice touch to the overall look of the boot. It just gives it that extra cool factor.

Cougar Boots Ravishing Winter Boots ($170 CAD): Seriously, these boots could not feel cozier and warm and they are super cute! LOVE the polar plush lining and the faux fur detail. You can also roll the fur trim higher up the leg or wear it mid-calf. I love the adjustable straps so there's enough room for thicker socks without feeling too tight. And yes, they fit my calves! These boots can withstand temperatures of -10 degrees C to -30 degrees C so you can have fun in the snow without freezing your toes off. Oh, and the mix of nylon and suede materials are waterproof! We haven't had any snow yet (thank God!), so I haven't really been able to test them out. But Cougar Boots are a quality you can count on.

Cougar Boots will for sure make a comeback and be on the feet of every fashionista. Be sure to visit the site - plenty of uber cute booties to choose from! These are a definite Makeup Junkie winter fashion must!

I'm really loving those rain boots. I took part in the campaign too but I got the Tibet rain boots which are also great. I got the same winter boots as you though - I'm actually ALMOST looking forward to snow just so I can wear them!

I'm having fun going around and "visiting" all the other awesome Canadian bloggers in this campaign. :)

@Sherry - I wanted the Tibet boots too. I'm definitely dreading the snow less now that i have some cute winter boots to rock!

Is there a list of bloggers somewhere that have done the Cougar campaign?
