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.

Nude Lips! (under $5)

30 Jun

I love a good nude lip color. I also love a great deal as most of you know! Today I’m sharing my 2 go-to nude lip pies, one is a gloss and one is a lip balm- BOTH are less than $5!

Maybelline Baby Lips in Peach Kiss.

This peach scented and slightly shimmery lip balm is perfect for everyday. Has the feel of chapstick with a nude/ peachy tint. Very hydrating as well!

NYX Butter gloss in Creme Brulee.

This silky smooth butter lip gloss lives up to its name! It glides on like butter and actually stays put! It is also no secret that this lip gloss is a dupe for many high-end lippies including NARS and Lorac.

Top 5 Summer Must Have Lipsticks!

17 Jun

Summer is a great time to embrace color in your makeup regimen. Although I prefer going minimal on my makeup during the warmest months, I do enjoy a pop of color on my lips. For my day to day summer looks, I usually skip eyeshadow and only wear tinted moisturizer, a touch of blush and some mascara! If I’m not wearing my go to nude lip gloss, I opt for one of these 5 colors below!

Most are pinks, one is a purple and one is a coral. These colors look great on all skin tones so DON’T BE SCARED of some color in your life!

Girl About Town by MAC $16 – Besides ‘Rebel'( which I wear religiously during the Fall/ Winter months) ‘Girl about Town’ is my favorite MAC color EVER EVER EVER! It is such a pretty fuchsia pink!

Girl-About-Town

 

Candy Yum Yum by MAC $16– this color may seem risky for some, but this hot pink adds instant POW to your look!

FireBall Butter Lipstick by NYX $6– This color is NOT true to tube which is great because it looks reddish at first, but goes on as a beautiful coral color!

Brazen Berry by Maybelline $6– This beautiful berry color is a pretty purple that everyone can pull off. Also, be sure to Google Pantone color of the year, this lipstick IS an exact match to radiant orchid!

Vivid Rose by Maybelline $6– Think perfect pink. This bright(but not too bright) pink is perfect all Summer long!

Color Of The Year!!!!

1 Jan

Happy New Year!!!!!! 2013 was a phenomenal year! Before I get too into this post, I would first like to say thank you to everyone that has supported this blog of mine since the beginning. If you’re new to it, I also want to thank you for stopping by! I am so grateful to you all!!! XO- Journey

Every year Pantone also known as the authority on color announces the “color of the year” and this year it’s a lovely purplish/fuschia hue they call Radiant Orchid.

As with any trend, a great way to get involved is to start with makeup.  Everyone can afford a lipstick or a nail polish and it’s not as risky as wearing a dress or a coat in that hue if you’re not that into color. Below are some fun makeup products to shop that will get you right into this trend!

Side note: This color is flattering on all skin tones!

My favorite lipstick $4.99 I can’t get enough of this lipstick!

Eyeliner $19 I own so many of these Urban Decay 24/7 eye liners and they are some of the BEST on the market. They really do last 24 hours and are highly pigmented.
