5 MAC Lipsticks that are a MUST Have!

"Lips, Makeup, Uncategorized"

MAC is a good place to start when it comes to lipsticks because they have such a great range of shades. They basically have every color you could think of. If I ever have a specific shade of lipstick in mind, I always go to MAC first. Anywho, it's great to build a base of lipsticks from. Here are the five that I think you absolutely need in your life: Ruby Woo Literally the best red. It looks flattering on every skin tone that I have seen. I pair this with a red lip liner I got from Milani. Persuasion / Taupe The perfect nude color. It's a warm toned nude and I'm sure it'll look nice on every skin color. Persuasion is a tad bit darker than taupe. I really love to wear…

Review: Huda Beauty Liquid Matte Lipstick

"Lips, Makeup, Uncategorized"

[gallery ids="1145,1151" type="square" columns="2"] Happy Valentine's Day! <3 Huda Beauty makes some of my favorite makeup products. . I finally decided to purchase her liquid matte lipsticks and my expectations were HIGH. I got the shade trendsetter. Here are my thoughts: Pigmentation: The pigmentation is great! No patchiness and it is very opaque! Longevity: Lasts a pretty long time - hours on hours on hours! If you eat you might have to reapply. However, I ate this morning and it lasted through my cereal. Quality: The formulation is wonderful. It feels so luxurious and high quality. It's very lightweight, and that's a quality that's hard to find in matte liquid lipsticks. The finish is matte but it is NOT DRYING at all. Not even a tiny bit. It's so soft. It can feel just…

My Perfect Nude Lip Combo

"Beauty, Lips, Uncategorized"

Lipstick is one of my favorite makeup items (if you couldn't already tell). It can drastically change your makeup look! Recently I've been seeing a lot of peachy tones being worn. I like wearing something a little toned down on an everyday basis and so far the following combo has been my favorite peachy neutral combo! This combo just goes so well with my skin tone. Tan skinned girls... you will be thanking me for this (I'm sure this will look nice on a variety of skin tones too)! How to Achieve this Lip Combo: 1) Apply MAC "Spice" lip liner all over the lips. One of my favorites! Definitely a staple! 2) Put on NARS "Belle Du Jour" lipstick. When I first swatched this it was so light - I was skeptical. But…

Are Expensive Lip Scrubs Better than DIYs?

"Beauty, Lips, Makeup, Uncategorized"

[gallery ids="878,879" type="square" columns="2"] As someone who has chronically chapped lips, I was extremely excited to try this lip scrub! I was really hoping this would be my lip-saver. This lip scrub is from fresh and it is called Sugar Lip Polish ($24). The directions say to massage a small amount onto the lips and then wipe it off with a damp washcloth. It can be used 2-3x a week. Here are my opinions on this product: I like that it makes my lips feel smooth afterwards. It also makes my lips plump (but that's expected because of the exfoliation). I don't like that it doesn't get all of the dead skin off of my lips. There is still some flakiness afterwards. Also, while it does feel smooth, it doesn't feel moisturized. Overall, I…

Review: Kylie Cosmetics Lip Kits

"Beauty, Lips, Uncategorized"

People go crazy over Kylie Jenner's liquid lipsticks! They used to get sold out in a matter of minutes! But is it really worth the craze? I bought the Kristen lip kit which is kind of a strawberry red type of color (more pink than red). Here are swatches: [gallery ids="705,704" type="columns"] I like that it's a nice color and the pigmentation is great. It's a unique color with a very pleasant scent. The lip liner is creamy and glides on easily. I don't like that it isn't very long wearing and that it is drying. I know that liquid lipsticks generally ARE drying but the Kylie liquid lipsticks are more drying than other liquid lipsticks I've tried. After wearing this lipstick for a while it gets a little patchy on my lips (some…
