Lipstick Love!

21 Nov

I am all for bold lipsticks and may or may not have more shades of red than I need.  With that being said,  one can imagine how excited I was when Mac first announced their holiday collection with sparkly packaging. Once I tried on their amazing matte red lippie with tiny specs of glitter, I had to have it. Let me just add that the glitter is by no means tacky big ol’ pieces, they’re really tiny pieces of shimmer 🙂 This is absolutely my new favorite red lipstick and it is limited edition so I advise you to get yourself a tube NOW! Once they’re gone they’re gone!

Perfect Summer Palettes!

3 May

Every year Spring/Summer rolls around, I get so excited to use my bolder and brighter lip colors, eyeshadows and blushes! There is no better time to incorporate beautiful color into your makeup routine. This Spring/Summer Lorac released 2 great colorful palettes that are sleek and perfect for travel as well as reasonably priced at $24. Both palettes feature 10 shimmer and matte shadows which include 2 oversized neutral shades allowing countless color combinations. The palettes are quite similar, so if you can only afford one, don’t worry!  One palette (After Glo)does feature some brighter colors than the other palette (Summer Glo) which you will see in the pictures below! It is just a matter of taste and whether you want to remain more on the “neutral/colorful” side or the ‘bright/colorful” side.  Either way, these palettes are PERFECT for summertime and are So pretty!

Pinspiration: Shades Of Grey!

4 Nov

Hi everyone!  As usual I was on Pinterest for over an hour this evening looking  at everything from home decor to handbags. I got sidetracked with cute grey nails and thought I’d share my favorites with you. I love rocking grey nails year round but especially in the Fall/Winter-  It just goes so well with black and burgundy which are colors I wear quite often during the cooler months.

From shiny to matte to french tipped here is some Pinspiration below!
