This is the story of my rash decision, inability to control myself in Sephora, & intense love for lip products. So I received one Make Up For Ever Artist Rouge Lipstick as a sample ages ago. I set it aside. I promptly lost track of it because you guys know…I prefer reviewing 5+ lip products for you guys to go over formula, shade selection, & I’m super wordy just in general. But then, in the back of a drawer, I found it. & I swatched it. & I wore it once. & I fell in absolute love. This was months ago. & then I decided to do something crazy. [Read more…]
Zoya is one of the first brands I completely fell in love with when I first starting blogging. Their nail polishes wear incredibly well on me & the colors speak to my soul. They’ve released lipsticks here & there in the past but when I saw they were releasing an entire range- YES! I knew I needed them in my life! Keep reading to see this wide variety of shades in the Zoya Perfect Formula! [Read more…]
I’m a big fan of the Maybelline Color Sensational lipsticks & when I saw the new shades in the Rebel Bloom Collection I was sold. This collection came out months ago but I’m just now getting around to reviewing! I wore quite a few shades throughout spring & I’m actually finding myself reaching for them even more as summer approaches full heat! Check out my swatches & review below! [Read more…]
Lip products are likely the beauty item I change up the most. I separated all of these into colors as opposed to formulas because I wear similar shades throughout the year- but often in very different tones & levels of brightness!

Has anything hit harder in the lip arena lately than the matte trend? Matte lipsticks are so hard to get right. For my dry lips I have to pay attention to moisture content & something that glides on beautifully. I need something that is beautiful, easy to apply, & won’t make my lips look like the Sahara. Is that too much to ask? Is it really?
Butter London has solved so many issues for me including not having very many matte lipsticks to recommend to people. Butter London has some of my favorite exterior packaging ever with cute nature touches. You will be able to see close ups of the Butter London Lippy Moisture Matte Lipstick shades below including swatches & lip swatches below!
This morning I woke up to the heater being off. I left my slippers downstairs so I had to walk barefoot on the tile. I then proceeded to freeze my hands when washing them. Winter is definitely here. Because I grew up in southern California, I am a bit bias about this winter nonsense. I would much rather visit snow than live in it. The one shining light during this season for me is the makeup…& all of the new releases! It Cosmetics is one of my favorite brands & today I get to share one of my favorite lippies in a limited edition form.

The packaging on this trio is obviously amazing- the more companies that catch on to the awesomeness that is holo the better. The It Cosmetics CC+ Lip Serum Limited Edition Holiday Collection includes three Hydrating Anti-Aging Color Correcting Crème Glosses. All three shades are limited edition & I believe exclusive to this set. I’ve actually reviewed It Cosmetics glosses on my blog here & here…& actually bought one for my mom as an early Christmas present! Can you guess if I will like these yet? [Read more…]
Have you ever tried a lip gloss that just…wasn’t a love match? Sometimes they’re too tacky or too thin or just…stink. Well you won’t be reading about any such thing on my blog today! The drugstore has some fantastic products in general but these Milani Brilliant Shine Lipglosses are some of the very best. Keep reading to check out these 4 shades on my lips! [Read more…]
If you can remember back to my review of the original Baby Lips back in 2011 & even some of my limited edition Maybelline Baby Lips posts then you’d know I am a big fan. I like the feel, the tint, & even the scent on the originals. Maybelline has brought us something new though- the Maybelline Baby Lips Dr. Rescue Medicated Balms. I picked up 3 shades & have my final thoughts all ready for you. Keep reading to see what I thought + lip swatches! [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.
When it comes to colors I really dig purple. I love greens as a very close second but purple is my jam. It is so exciting that drugstore brands like Maybelline are jumping on the vibrant & super bold purple lip trend & I was sucked into buying 3 products from their Fall 2013 display. There are other glosses & 2 more lipsticks but they either looked to close to shades I know I have multiples of or just weren’t for me. Keep reading to see my thoughts & lip swatches! [Read more…]
