Let’s talk Lips!!!

17 Mar

Okay a while back I did a post on my favorite lip products, Chanel Glossimer and Milani lipgloss. Chanel is definitely a splurge while Milani is super affordable. Well today on my trip to ULTA beauty I found something SO SIMILAR (looks and feels the same) to Chanel Glossimer and priced at under $2, yes you read that right. So if you like the look of the Chanel but not the price you now can buy this alternative:) Pictured Left: Chanel Glossimer in blizzard Right($29.50)available at Chanel stores and Dept. stores as well .Pictured Right: Essence xxxl shine in Big Night Out($1.99)available at ULTA beauty.

I also wanted to talk about my new favorite soft matte lip cream colors made by NYX.  Let me tell you they’re the best. They are highly pigmented like a lipstick, not glossy, yet not a stain. It dries to a matte finish while keeping lips moist ,unlike most mattes,with the texture of a balm. Perfect for the day when you want some color but not “crazy club lip”.($6) available in 11 colors at ULTA beauty and NYX.

P.S. I am loving ULTA beauty, it’s kinda like a Sephora WITH all the drugstore brands included. I spent $30 on my haul and walked away with 6 products!

      Yes, so far everything I’ve tried is great quality and so affordable. There eyeshadows are pretty amazing too, comparable to MAC pots with super pigmented colors.

      There’s an ULTA in Torrance if you can’t wait for shipping! They are so neat, I usually skip the mattes or just put powder on my fav colors to tone them down but now I have these:) Make sure you double check the tube because they have the same packaging for there extreme lip cream, which is a creamy gloss.

    My favorite gloss of all time is Chanel Glossimer – it’s not sticky, too thick, or smell like candy.
