2015 FAVORITE LIP COLOR LINE!!

Oh Man…. where do I even start with this post? I have been MIA from this blog for quite some time now and honestly, it’s because I’ve only been buying one brand lately. I didn’t want to come here and sound like I was trying to push this one brand on anyone but I can’t hold back anymore. I’m still not trying to push it, try it, don’t try it…. wait… DO try it! 😉

It’s the best long lasting lip color I have tried. I’ve been wearing it for months now trying to be certain that I was as hooked and committed as I thought I was becoming. In the beginning I kept thinking, “I don’t like this. What’s the hype?” I didn’t like it because it burned my lips in the beginning, not a bad bu54a083d37b454ca6c90d893631390ae9rn, more of a tingle, as in alcohol on dry lips, which was exactly what was happening. It contains SD40 alcohol, which is cosmetic grade alcohol that keeps everything inside the tube sanitary, and aids in the longevity. But, I had chronic dry lips… generally unhealthy lips. I always wanted matte lips, but the matte lipsticks looked disgusting on my dry, chapped, flaky mess of a mouth. Not cute, I tell ya. Then I had distributors telling me to stick with it. That this lip stuff was going to actually HEAL these chronically dry lips of mine. I thought, “Yea right.” But alas, I stuck it out. I wore it every day. Pretty soon, I wasn’t waking up in the morning having to exfoliate the flakes away. My lips were smooth. I couldn’t believe it. I would have stuck with this product for the long haul, for that fact alone. However, the lasting power!! Holy moly you guys! This stuff stays put until you are ready to remove it. I apply it once a day and I’m good all day long. That’s not an exaggeration, let me just link a video right now that shows you what I mean. It isn’t going to budge, smudge, kiss off, get eaten off, nothing.

Tell me that isn’t just awesome sauce! The color shown in this video is the exact color that Christina Aguilera wears. In interviews she has said that she loves it because of the fact that it won’t smear on her microphone.

I also love the below video because she discusses the importance of correct application. It’s so important to apply it correctly to get the best coverage and wear.

I’ve tried going back to regular lipstick you guys. I just can’t do it. I was getting my products from my mom, she was a distributor and selling in her hair salon. Since then, I have bitten the bullet and signed up to be a distributor as well! I can’t even rave about this product enough. It has become my go to lip color. I now own 37…yes 37 colors and I am ready to get rid of all of my waxy products that don’t last or do anything good for my lips!

I hope you guys will give it a try! If you know someone that sells it, get in contact with them ASAP! If you don’t, I will be more than happy to help you out. You can purchase by going to http://www.senegence.com click BUY NOW and use my distributor ID: 180127 to login and get a customer ID number.

Xoxo,

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.

image

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
Rimmel Kate Moss Collection: #08 or #104
Maybelline Matte lipstick A Touch of Spice
Maybelline Matte lipstick in Lust for Blush

LIP LINERS
NYX Mauve
NYX Natural
Revlon Colorstay Nude
Bare Minerals in Thistle

Do you have any good lipstick shades that fit the 90s look? Share yours in the comments!

Stay gorgeous glossies!

Beauty News Flash!

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

image

Look close… Do you see it??

image

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.

Beauty News Flash! New Wet n Wild products!

I just read on the Nouveau Cheap blog that there has been a siting of new Wet N Wild balm stains and 5-pan Coloricon eyeshadow palettes. Wet N Wild, in my opinion, has some of the best eyeshadows, and it is just icing on the cake that they are so darn cheap!

If you are a makeup junkie, like me, you know that Wet N Wild’s new and limited edition palettes can be pretty hard to find. Fortunately, G. from Nouveau Cheap believes these new palettes will be part of the permanent collection.

To see a picture and read more on this news head on over to G.’s blog by visiting the link above.

**Editing to add: Visit this link to see G.’s most recent update on all of the NEW products for 2014. As most of us know, they have a tendency to start showing up before then, and obviously, from the first post, they already are! Are y’all as pumped as I am about these new products?! Let me know what you’re the most interested in trying. I’m extremely curious about the cream glitter shadows. :)**

Pop of Yellow

Pop of Yellow

Decided to try something out of the norm. A little pop of yellow on the lid. Really like how it turned out for a fun colorful look. With the right outfit it would look great for a night out.

And when you also have a baby that wants to be held, you just hold him while doing your makeup and then photographing it. ;)

Product Rave & Review | L’oreal Infallible Eyeshadow

Hello lovelies!

I’m sorry I haven’t posted in awhile. My 6 month old has decided that sleep is overrated so we have been quite worthless around here on most days. I think his reflux was bothering him quite a bit so we have him on some new medication and fingers crossed that it helps.

Today, I have a rave/review on a L’oreal Infallible eyeshadow. These are single eyeshadows from the drugstore for about $8 so, they are a little more expensive than a typical single eyeshadow from the drugstore. However, the quality is great. The consistency is quite different than anything I have ever tried before. L’Oreal describes it as a “powder-cream” texture. It is almost a loose pigment that has been pressed but isn’t as solid as a regular pressed shadow. Very interesting, and quite hard to explain. Get ya hands on one girl, you won’t be disappointed. I recommend Bronzed Taupe for your first shade to try out. It’s a great eyeshadow that you can use to create a one shadow look. Because of the shimmer, almost metallic finish of it, and how the light catches it, it looks like you have used two shadows vs only one. I like to pack it all over the lid and then use a fluffy brush to blend it into the crease.

Here are a few pictures of the product and a swatch. Notice the little stopper. Don’t throw it away! It keeps the product in place, I’m guessing. But, it actually says on the stopper “Do not discard.”
