I’m officially back and what better way to restart this beauty journey than to begin with what started this blog… Lipsticks!
If you have me on snapchat you would have seen my bucket full of lipsticks that I own[ed], before I got rid of some. I chose my favorite lipsticks and a combo that I’ve been loving recently.
Since you’ve waited so long to hear from me, I’ll just jump into my lipstick favorites!
If you’re apart of Sephora’s Beauty Insider you would have gotten this for free for your birthday! As you all know my birthday was last month so I just got this! Let me tell you, the texture of this lip pencil is amazing. The name is not joking! It is so velvety and the color pay off is great! I love the color as well because it’s not a true red it has a little burgundy in it, but just enough to deepen the color. I’m completely in love with this color! The only thing I would suggest is to blot it after applying to increase the longevity of the lipstick as well as from having it smear all over the place.
* I did not include the other NARS lip pencil after all because after longer wear the shimmer in it would clump up and make my lips dry. I know it is in the pic but I decided to take it out last minute. I apologize.
Y’all know I love me some MAC lipstick (Which girl doesn’t amirite? ) This shade is amazing. I was really iffy when I bought it, I thought I would return it after seeing it outside of the story but honestly I fell in love with it. It gives you a nice mauve tone perfect for this weather and season, but not too dark to scare you away from it. I used this for 2 weeks straight with all sorts of eye makeup and it paired off beautifully for the most part! A definite must have for me.
MAC lipstick take two. Whirl has been the most talked about LIP PENCIL, and I figured the lipstick would be beautiful as well. I love it. It is a little ‘color sucking’ because it does make your skin look a little more pale than usual but if you pair it off with the right makeup you can definitely kill this look. I use this lipstick when I’m going full on glam. This color may not be for everyone but pinks are not my cup of tea, for the most part. browns and purples are.
The quality of these babies are really close, if not exactly, like the NARS Matte Velvet Lip Pencils I mentioned earlier. The color intensity is insane. You can see with Berry Misbehaved it looks a lot like NARS Cruella, but in reality it’s more of a pink berry tone, where Cruella is closer to red. I’m Blushing is a perfect pinky nude which I love since pinks are hard to find to match my skin tone. Like I said with the NARS Lip pencil you should blot after application to make sure your lip color isn’t all over your face and hands… Believe me I know… LOOOONG STORY.
I’ve been loving me some nude colors this week and this has been my go to nude combo. I line my lips with Half Red and fill in my lips about half way then I’ll go in with Abu Dhabi until I’ve blended it all together. This is perfect for that simple look you want when you’re going out on a casual date or just to the store.
I’m so glad to be back. The blog will be under some construction so don’t mind all the weird links going on. I hope to get it back up and running smoothly.
