FOTD: Nude Lips & Thick Liner/Lashes

FOTD - Nude lips, thick lashes and liner

So I’ve been completely obsessed with nude lips recently. Everyone has seen the beautiful Kylie Jenner rocking a full nude lip and I, of course, wanted to join in on the fun. Her lips look incredibly plump and full, which can be achieved by simply lining outside of your natural lip line. My lips are already pretty full so I line just a smidge outside of my natural lip line and straight across my cupid’s bow to create that plumper effect.


I did some research and found that Kylie uses MAC Whirl/Stripdown Lip Pencil and MAC Faux/Yash/Velvet Teddy Lipstick. I’m not completely certain on which shade she uses …

Review: NYX Butter Gloss in Creme Brulee, Tiramisu, & Peach Cobbler

NYX Butter Gloss

My beloved NYX Butter Glosses. These are my absolute favorite lip glosses of all time. Not only are they very inexpensive, but they also last relatively long and smell exactly like vanilla sugar cookies! Plus there are over 20 shades to choose from so this product is a definite must-have.

NYX Butter Gloss is said to be a “buttery lip gloss with a sweet scent that provides sheer to medium coverage on your lips without that sticky feeling. It provides nourishment with a flush of color on your lips giving you the perfect …

Review: Bite Beauty Luminous Crème Lipstick Duo in Vivid

Bite Beauty Luminous Crème Lipstick Duo

Bite Beauty is one of my favorite lip product brands. I’ve tried and reviewed a Lip Cream and Lip Crayon but never an actual lipstick. I decided to pick up this duo to try out a couple of colors for half the price of a normal-sized lipstick. I thought this was a great deal to try out some fun colors without having to spend a lot.

Bite Beauty Luminous Creme Lipstick Duo is said to be “A bite-sized lipstick duo of contrasting shades. This mini duo of twist-up bullets offer neutral or vivid lips on the go. Wear them individually or layer to create your own custom look. With every application, …

Review: Too Faced Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipstick

Too Faced Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipstick

Too Faced recently came out with their own line of liquid lipsticks. It seems like every brand, both drugstore and high-end, are coming out with new liquid lipsticks and stains. I absolutely love my Bite Beauty Cashmere Lip Cream and Sephora Cream Lip Stains so I was very excited to try these out!

Too Faced Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipstick is said to be “An intensely saturated lip color with a precise tip applicator. The shine of a gloss, lasting power of a stain, and pigment-packed color of a liquid lipstick, all in one high-impact formula. Bold, long-wearing color glides on cleanly with the precision tip applicator, …

Review: Bite Beauty Cashmere Lip Cream in Crush

Bite Beauty Cashmere Lip Cream in Crush

Bite Beauty is quickly becoming one of my all time favorite lip product brands! I knew I had to have this lip cream when I first heard about it. Anything that is described as being both “matte” and “cream” in a lip product description is definitely being added to my collection.

Bite Beauty Cashmere Lip Cream is described as “A cream-to-powder matte lip color that delivers an unprecedented 50 percent pigment dispersion. Through BITE’s proprietary small-batch process, this weightless formula fuses hand-milled edible butters with pure premium pigments to …

Review: Bite Beauty Matte Crème Lip Crayon in Blood Orange

Bite Beauty Matte Creme Lip Crayon in Blood Orange

I have been wanting to try these Bite Matte Lip Crayons ever since they came out! I took advantage of Sephora’s 15% off sale and picked up some products from Bite Beauty, including this Matte Creme Lip Crayon in the shade Blood Orange. I absolutely LOVE orange lip products! I think corals and oranges are perfect shades for the spring and summer.

Bite Beauty Matte Creme Lip Crayon is said to be “A moisture-rich, matte-finish lipstick with a delicious citrus scent. Formulated with citrus peel wax for a hydrating matte finish, this lip color comes …

Review: Maybelline Color Elixir Lip Color in Vision In Violet

Maybelline Color Elixir in Vision In Violet

So I’m kind of late jumping on the bandwagon with these Maybelline Color Elixirs. I’ve heard such wonderful things about them so I finally decided to try it out. I got this in the shade Vision In Violet because it is so bright and colorful, and I don’t have a shade like this in my collection. I think it would be perfect for spring!

Maybelline Color Elixir Lip Color – “Experience saturated lip color, sensuous balm care and polished lip shine from Maybelline New York Color Elixir by Color Sensational. The exclusive smoothing angora brush delivers …

Drugstore Favorites!

Drugstore Favorites

Anytime I enter a CVS, Walgreens, or Target, I always leave with some type of makeup product. Throughout the years, I’ve  found a few favorites from the drugstore that I cannot live without. Here is a list of makeup products that I feel should be in your collection:

Physicians Formula Mineral Wear Mineral Loose Powder – When I am in a rush, I tend to just throw on some powder, concealer, do my brows, and put on mascara before I head out the door. I feel like powder foundations are faster and easier to work with than liquid foundations. I was solely a Bare Minerals foundation user but then I found this …

Review: NYX Matte Lipstick

NYX Matte Lipstick

NYX matte lipsticks are some of my favorites! Not only are they very pigmented and affordable, they also come in a wide range of colors (33 colors total). Some new colors came out recently and I decided to try out a few.

NYX Matte Lipsticks are said to be “highly pigmented, richly formulated and long-wearing. The formula glides on smoothly and stays put in a matte finish. From Pure Red to Nude, Matte Lipsticks are available in a variety of rich shades.”
