Hello Lovely Makeup Junkies!

I know it has been a really long time since I have been able to post. I was strictly posting from my phone and tablet, which proved to be quite annoying at times. I have finally gotten a new laptop! Yay! So, that means I will be back to posting and blogging regularly. I am so thankful to all of you that have followed the blog and to those that have been visiting from good ol’ Pinterest. My MAC lipstick dupe list is the one that usually brings you all here, but I hope that you’ll stick around and see what other things I have to chat about!

Kylie Jenner Lip Craze!

image

As you all know, everyone is trying to figure out what in the world Kylie Jenner has been wearing on her lips. It’s very 90s, very matte, and oh so sexy. There were, of course, rumors of lip injections from gossip sites and magazines but, if you know about the power of makeup and have a good eye, you can tell in many of her early photos, that her lips are just overdrawn with a darker dusty rose or mauve lip liner. As for her latest selfies, well it’s getting hard to tell. Whatever she is doing, it is gorg. She is rocking it.

Talk around the web is saying that the exact liner she uses is MAC Whirl. As for what lipstick she pairs with it I’ve read MAC Viva Glam II, Brave, Velvet Teddy, or Twig. I say head to the MAC counter and see which looks best with your skin tone to achieve that fab KJ lip.
Other MAC lip products you might check out, that fit this 90s theme is:
liners: Soar, Sub Culture + Whirl
lipsticks: Mehr, Mink, Faux

However, if you would rather not do that I have compiled a list of drugstore products that I have seen used to achieve the KJ look and they look quite good!

LIPSTICKS
Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm: Sultry
NYX Matte Lipstick: Whipped Caviar
Revlon Matte Lipstick: Mauve It Over *possibly discontinued

Beauty News Flash!

While drinking my tea and finally sitting down to read my September Allure issue, I came across something very exciting!

Look close… Do you see it??

Did you catch it?  MINI BEAUTYBLENDERS! They look to be an inch in length when dry. Just like the article says, they’re going to be perfect under the eyes and in the creases of the nose. I have to get my hands on a pack of these asap!

Currently, I use my Makeup Geek foundation stippling brush; which is very much like the Sigma F80 flat top. It is great all over the face and then to blend concealer under my eyes, I use my regular Beautyblender.  It is amazing for that but a smaller version is going to be ideal! I can’t wait to get my hands on one.

Let me know you’re thoughts.  Do any of you beauty lovers already own one? 

Here is a video review of the mini from The1nonlymaria on YouTube.

Product Fail! Maybelline Master Shape brow pencil

image

#1 in a new series of products I regret buying!

Maybelline Master Shape by Eyestudio: I’ve tried and tried to use this. It’s just terrible. I bought Auburn because I color my hair red. The shade is fine, although not very pigmented,  the real issue lies in the formulation. It’s SO soft. You can’t even sharpen it without it breaking. If you do happen to get it sharpened enough to use you will use anything up that is there once you start applying it. It’s just a hot mess y’all!  Don’t waste your money like I did!
