Pretty Pink Pout!

8 May

Every Spring I get so excited to wear pretty pink lipsticks. I wear pink lip color year round, but during the warmer months I go with lighter, more rose toned pinks. I have 2 new favorites to share with you that I’ve been wearing non stop.

The first color is a light dusty rose powder matte by Maybelline called ‘Nocturnal Rose’. Although it’s matte, it’s not the typical drying formula.  This is the color that I’m wearing in my latest Instagram post.  $8 Shop HERE.

The second color is medium warm pink by Bobbi Brown called ‘Bitten’.  It has the look of lipstick, but the feel of a lip balm. $29 Shop HERE.

Fall Lipstick Must have

2 Oct

Every year myself and countless bloggers compile lists of our favorite Fall lipsticks to share with the world. Every year the same lipstick is on my list. I’m sharing only one color this year because I feel so strongly that it should be a part of every woman’s Fall lip color collection. Without a doubt, Mac Rebel is my go-to, must have Fall lip color.mac

The beautiful rich berry/wine hue is gorgeous and looks amazing on all skin tones as well.  I can’t even remember what tube I’m on at this point- I literally wear it all Fall long and into Winter as well. I love love love this color! What are your favorite fall lippies?

Priced at $30 rumor has it, it’s worth every penny and unlike any other eyeliner on the market.

Sheer Genius!

13 Oct

I tried Almost Lipstick by Clinique today and I love it!  I have always been a fan of tinted lip balms and stains because for day-to-day use I want moisture more than anything else, but a touch of color is nice.  Almost Lipstick is perfect for all day wear  it’s a moisturizing semi gloss, ultra-light lipstick. Not quite a gloss, and not quite a lipstick,  it’s formula looks great alone yet it’s sheer enough for easy layering.  Available in 8 shades ($15) at clinique counters and online at  Clinique.

I tried the black honey and it’s a very light plum color, although it looks dark in the tube. The colors are all very light and sheer.

Berry Pretty Crimson Kiss

4 Sep

I am so excited to wear bold lip colors this Fall.  I wear lip color year round but I usually stick to nudes, peaches, corals and pinks in the warmer months. Every September I incorporate my wine hued favorites and shop for any new ones that spark my interest. I literally discovered these Wet n wild shades from a friend three days ago and I’m hooked! In this particular post I will focus on my favorite 5 reds. A crimson kiss looks great on all skin tones and works  any time of day or night.  With this bold lip I do go light on my eye makeup during the day  to keep a nice balance and I save the “crazy” eye for the evening i.e.. heavy on the shadow and or eyeliner etc.

My favorite 5.

Red can be scary at first but just try it on at the makeup counter, they will always let you sample some (make sure they shave the top layer off first, they are used to this request)

New to the whole red lip look? Start with a sheer coverage like the Givenchy,  it’s slightly pearlescent and lightly tints the lips.

Want to dive right into the red?  Then the other 4 choices below are for you.  They are true to tube color providing pigment rich intense color payoff, yes even the dollar ones are amazing! I promise!

Givenchy Rouge Interdit in Raspberry Shine ($30)

Wet n wild Silk Finish in  Cherry Frost 514A (99¢) Also available at drug stores.

Wet n wild SilkFinish in Just Garnet 552A (99¢)

NYC Ultra Moist Lipwear in Retro Red (99¢) Also available at drug stores.

MAC Satin Lipcolor in Rebel ($15)

Swatches…

Fair skin…

Medium skin…

Inspiration……. from cherry red to deep bordeoux…….these colors look great on everyone!

 

 

Where are you going to rock your red?????????

New Revlon Balm Stain

18 Aug

I just discovered a new lip product and I love it!  The Revlon Balm Stain is a moisturizing balm infused with a lightweight lip stain that gives lips  just enough color that lasts for hours. Balm stain is perfect size to take on the go and is in the form of a chubby crayon for precise application.  It’s a  perfect day-to-day lip product if you want to look slightly made up but not over the top.  Available in 12 colors at drugstores now for about $8. (I’ve seen them for $6.79 at Rite aid and $8.99 on Revlon.com)  These crayons are very similar to  Tarte lipSurgence  that retail for $24.
