As part of my mini ULTA haul I had purchased one of NYX’s matte lip creams mainly out of curiosity. I knew of the Copenhagen shade that always blows up the internet in the Fall/Winter. So because of this, and the fact it was buy one NYX product get the other 50% off, I just had to try out a new shade. The shade I purchased is in the color San Paulo which is a bright fuchsia color. Without any special deals this product retails for $5.99.

This is probably one of the most overdue posts ever…considering my birthday was a few weeks ago. On July 12th I turned 22, and honestly had no idea what I wanted for my birthday. I was stumped this year, truly and honestly stumped. I brainstormed the idea of getting ombre hair but decided against that after seeing a classmate have the same dye done. It would definitely not be for me. So then I thought to myself how could I up my makeup game? Well MAC came to mind. I have already strayed away from top brands and knew that MAC was a pricey brand. But hey it was my birthday, and I had to tell people something!

Have you ever needed a product that can do more than just one thing? Well you’re in luck! Today I’ll be reviewing the E.L.F. Essential All Over Sticks that work as a 3 in 1 color for your eyes, lips, and or face! I currently own 4 of the shades, but sadly as I have put this post up I realized that E.L.F. had discontinued one of the shades I own. But knowing E.L.F. it could easily be back soon. This 3 in 1 stick costs only $1 and can be found on their website, or in most stores that carry E.L.F. products. Currently I know that most drugstores and major retailers carry E.L.F. cosmetics.

Chapped Lip Solutions: Moisturizing Lipsticks

DSC_1191

Are you one of those people that constantly have chapped lips? Always bummed out because your favorite lipstick always looks cakey when your lips are literally falling off? Well fear no more! The solution is here, moisturizing lipsticks.

Since I was a wee baby I have suffered from constantly chapped lips. As I aged this annoying occurrence turned into an actual dilemma, the fact that I have to be very conscious on what kind of lipstick I would wear that day. No one wants to put on a lipstick and find that it reached every crevice, showing every piece of dry lip that there is on your beautiful face. To counteract this problem I went on the search for lipsticks that are moisturizing and glide on like a charm. So for today I have picked four drugstore lipsticks and two high end, just for those who might want some comparisons.
