Emily told me that she was looking for a lipstick that she could swipe on and walk out the door. Nothing too flashy but something to perk up her complexion in an instant, even when she wasn’t wearing makeup. So we went on a treasure hunt in Sephora, and the many swatches my arm made me look all shades of fabulous. Seriously, I came out of there looking like I just went through a makeup battle zone. But you know when you find the right lipstick, it just feels right? This was it and the moment we swatched it. we knew we had found the one we were looking for.  Continue reading

Pucker up with Peach.


Revlon Colorburst Sunset Peach

What Revlon says: “Lips that shine with killer color. This weightless gloss makes lips pop with 5X more shine than patent leather”

I’ve actually had this lip gloss for about two years now and it is a staple in my lipstick purse. I know, I have a lipstick purse, I’m a sick person. I reach for this continually on a daily basis because the color is so versatile and effortless! For a girl with too many lipsticks and lip glosses to count, that’s saying something.  Continue reading

Pass the Bubbly.


LUSH Liquid Lipstick in Bubbly

What LUSH says: “A fun, flirty pink that has a subtle shimmer. Wear it lightly for a more translucent look, or apply generously for a brighter color that reminds you to be cheerful and high spirited. The moisturizing jojoba oil and rose wax base ensure lips stay soft and smooth. Because this creamy lipstick is so versatile, many of us have been using it as a blush. Just dot a small amount on the cheeks and blend well. Bubbly; Laugh out loud.”

I will admit, this was not one of the colors that was chosen for me when I spun the Emotional Brilliance Wheel at LUSH. I know, I’m such a cheater. But, it was just too beautiful not to add to my bag! I loved the name, the color and once I put it on my lips I knew I was sold. It’s such a bright and fun hot pink for summer, and if you don’t have a flirty pink for summer, get on this ASAP.  Continue reading

Hey guys! I know I’ve been non consistent in my posts recently, and I’m sorry about that! Finals are really kicking me hard this year and I have numerous projects I have to finish before May 10th. After that, I’ll start posting much more regularly again! I promise! Since I have so much to do, I’ve also been wearing less makeup, and this little lip balm has been my staple this past winter and especially these past few weeks. I know, you guys are probably all thinking–how boring! It’s just lip balm! But I’m here to tell you this is no ordinary lip balm, and while it is from a men’s skincare line, us ladies need to get in on it too. It’s phenomenal.  Continue reading



L’oreal Color Riche Balm in Heavenly Berry

This tinted lip balm provides a hint of luscious, kissable color, smoothing lips instantly and for a full 8 hours of continuous hydration. Lips are softer and more supple all day long—and keeps conditioning even after it’s been removed.”

I cannot tell you how much I love these balms. This was another color that I bought during my Walgreens shopping spree (read about that funny story here) and I am so happy that I have it. If you still haven’t picked one of these up yet, you need to. You’re missing out.  Continue reading

Have your cake and put it on your lips too!


Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter in Strawberry Shortcake

Revlon describes it as a- “Buttery balm with beautiful shiny color to give you baby soft, healthy glowing lips.”

This was another lip color that I bought during my Walgreens haul (funny story right here) that I knew I was going to love. I have a huge soft spot for pinks, especially baby pinks and this color is right up my alley. My pink lipstick obsessed alley that is.  Continue reading

Pretty in Pink.


Anastasia Hydrafull Gloss in Jolene

You guys might be wondering where my “Face Mask Friday” post is seeing as I’m posting about a lipstick. Fret not, I’ll be posting one tomorrow! I switched it up because my Ultimate ladies and I will be having another ladies night and I get to make the face masks again! Now, onto the lip gloss. I am seriously so obsessed with lip gloss, and when I saw the Anastasia ‘Kisses on my List’ set this past summer, I had to make it mine. The whole set is unfortunately not available anymore because it was limited edition, but you can still buy the lip glosses separate. This is one of my favorites that was sadly limited edition with the set, but I felt like I needed to show it off considering I wear it so often.  Continue reading

A tastefully done nude lipstick.


MAC Creme d’ Nude Lipstick

What MAC says:”Colour plus texture for the lips. Stands out on the runway. Simmers on the street! What made M·A·C famous.”

Every year for Christmas, Chantell buy each other a lipstick. This year, I realized I didn’t own a nude lipstick, so off we went to Sephora! Unfortunately, I didn’t find a single nude I was looking for. They had too much brown, or pink, and some even had traces of orange! Yuck! They had nothing in Nakedology either, so off to MAC we went. What I found was exactly what I was looking for, and I mentally smacked myself for not going there first. This is the perfect non-dead looking nude lipstick I’ve ever found, I absolutely adore it.  Continue reading
