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!

New Affordable Eyebrow Kit!

28 Mar

Hi everyone, as you know I’m a bit obsessed with brows and brow kits.  I prefer wax and powder kits over eye pencils because they fill in brows perfectly without looking drawn on or fake. My favorite brow kit thus far is by NYC and comes in 2 shades, but now NYX has a kit of their own that comes in 6 shades!!!! Leaving no brow lover behind!   The NYC kit has been good to me, but I will definitely be using the NYX kit as well. If you’ve only tried pencils, I suggest you try a powder and wax kit and at these prices it’s worth it!

NYC Brow kit. $4  This kit is only $4 but only comes in 2 shades and the shades are a single color and wax. If you’re on a super tight budget and happen to match these colors, this kit is for you.

NYX cake powder kit. $6  This kit comes in 6 shades and the shades are a set of two blendable colors (so you can find your perfect match) as well as wax!  If you can spare $6 and want to find your EXACT match, this kit is for you.

NYX

Remember: your eyebrows frame your face and defined eyebrows make your eyes pop, make you look awake and younger!

My Favorite Matte Bronzer!

11 Dec

Bronzers are great whether you’re looking to add warmth to your complexion(year round tan without the orange look) or to add depth by contouring.  I am naturally tan so I use bronzers for contouring and personally prefer matte bronzers (as opposed to shimmery).  I have tried many and now I use NYX matte bronzer regularly and for $9 it definitely gives me a lot of bang for my buck.  I found that the NYX matte bronzer blended just as well as high-end bronzers and provided exactly what I was looking for.  It’s similar to Benefit Hoola matte bronzer($28) and MAC Pro long wear bronzer($28) in many ways besides price. This Available in 5 colors….light, medium, deep, dark tan and deep tan so there are options for many skin tones. If you want to try bronzer for the first time or want an affordable alternative in your makeup collection, give this a try. Available at Drug stores, Ulta and NYX.
