Matte lip products are still having a serious moment. I’ve been promising a big matte lipstick post for some time now but I just wasn’t quite ready yet. & now I am! Basically I wanted this post to be BIG. I’m talking huge. Because I love me some matte lips! My lips tend to be more dry so the list I’ve compiled tends to have really comfortable, creamy, & gorgeous shades that don’t tug the lips. I’ve gathered up my absolute favorite formulas & brands here to share with you- keep reading to check them all out including both lipstick & lip cream options! [Read more…]
Today I bring you a post I’ve been beyond excited about writing. A tale of dupes…a story of matte…& an eye look I’m in love with. On top of all that I’m talking about a bargain! If you love neutrals & snagging a great deal then you’re in the right spot!

When it comes to neutral palettes Urban Decay is still likely the most well-known popular brand. From their trio of Naked palettes to the ever popular Naked Basics…Urban Decay is pretty much a no-brainer. I stumbled upon a few palettes at Beauty Brands recently on display & immediately saw some serious similarities. I picked up the Beauty Brands Matte Mini Color Collection & the Beauty Brands Neutral Mini Color Collection. There was also two other palettes which I’ll discuss below! [Read more…]
Ever walked through TJ Maxx & spied an OPI you’ve never seen? Well I did! I promptly placed it in my cart (along with way too much other stuff) & didn’t think twice about it. When I looked at it in the car on the way home I really thought it was stunning- flakie & shimmer & yes! So much yes! This got me thinking- why am I the only one crazy about it? Why haven’t I heard of this shade? Just wait to find out why because this is one weird OPI tale! [Read more…]
With my lip/hand swatches of the new Maybelline Limited Edition Fall 2013 purple lip colors came a promise for comparisons! Today I’m showing you a few side by sides plus my quick purple ombre above.
I’ve been working on my Lorac Pro Palette review for what feels like ages! I have had it for about 3-4 months now & wanted a well rounded view. I have a lot of neutral palettes but I got a request to compare it to the Urban Decay original Naked palette & The Balm Nude ‘Tude palette. So since I’ll be posting my Lorac Pro Palette review soon I thought I’d put up this post now! Keep reading for side by side comparisons!
For this post, I’m going to compare each palette to the Lorac Pro palette just in case you’re looking for something specific. Prices are similar, the Urban Decay Naked Palette retails for $50.00 , The Balm Nude ‘Tude Palette retails for $36.00, & the Lorac Pro Palette retails for $42.00. [Read more…]
Maybelline has come out with new Color Tattoos so you know I had to run out & pick them up! I’ll be showing 5 from the new display soon but first I wanted to show #10 Precious Pearl. I love neutral bases & these Maybelline Color Tattoos make the perfect eyeshadow or shadow base for me! Comparisons can be so helpful with cream eyeshadows don’t you think? I also decided to show this shade next to #100 Barely Beige & #70 Barely Branded for reference. Keep reading to see more! [Read more…]
