Favourite Fall Lipsticks

12 Sep

Hello everyone! A fun post for today since the weather is slowly getting colder and colder I have been pulling out all my darker lipsticks. I still love my brights so I will be showcasing what lipsticks I will be rocking for the Fall. Of course I couldn’t choose just 10 I had to pick 12.

First row: Revlon Ultimate Suede Lipstick in Socialite, ELF Mineral Lipstick in Rich Raspberry, MAC Plumful, Revlon Lip Butter in Berry Smoothie, Maybelline Color Whisper in Who wore it Red-er, MAC Rebel, MAC Apres Chic (limited edition)

Second Row: Clinique Chubby Stick in Voluptuous Violet, Maybelline ColorSensational Lipstick in Blissful Berry, Covergirl Lip Perfection Lipstick in Embrace, Revlon Lip Butter in Red Velvet, Maybelline ColorSensational Lipstick in Hot Plum

Now that I see all the lipsticks lined up Maybelline’s Hot Plum looks really out of order lol.

So most of the shades actually look like MLBB (my lips but better) shades but I like to save my redder lipsticks for the holiday seasons but some of the berry lipsticks are one of my favourites to sport. All of these lipsticks are fantastic so definitely check them out!

Review: Clinique All about Eyes Rich

24 Feb

Hello everyone! It snowed earlier today so I though I would do a review on a moisturizing eye cream.

Description: A cream that diminishes the look of circles, shadows and puffiness it is also refreshingly moisturizing. A regular jar contains 0.5 oz. or 15 mL. The lifetime/how long it will take to go bad is 6 months from the opening date.

Review: When my eyes aren’t feeling up to the task of prying themselves open this sort of helps. But as a moisturizing eye cream I sure think it does it’s job. Packaging is a simple plastic jar and my hands are usually clean so I don’t have to worry about bacteria trying to breed themselves in the pot. The cream is buttery smooth and there is no scent as for the reduced under eyes I can say that it sort of helps (concealer still is needed). It didn’t give me any under eye milia so that was a good bonus. Overall, I think it’s a great eye cream and works well for people of all skintypes.

Cost: $37CDN @ department stores and Sephora

Would I recommend this product?

Recent Haul

10 Jan

Hello everyone! So I just hauled some beauty items recently because I felt like I deserved it with a death in the family, school just sucking money out of you and whatnot. I’m in debt until my next paycheque but these items do make me feel better about myself and allows me to perk myself up every morning.

Items picked up from MAC Naturally Collection: Redhead Mineralized Skin Finish, In the Sun and Daylight Mineralized Eyeshadow, Fresh Honey Mineralized Blush. Others are Clinique All about Eyes Rich Eye Cream, Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Bronzer, and Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Skin Protectorant (for those pesky dry patches a repurchase).

Review: Revlon Lip Butter in Strawberry Shortcake

21 Dec

Hello everyone! A review again today… it will be a review day… everyday!! Anyways, these lipsticks are pretty well reviewed in the Youtube beauty community so hope you don’t mind me adding in my thoughts on this.

Description: Buttery smooth lipsticks with a perfect amount of pigmentation. Strawberry Shortcake is a light pink shade with tiny sliver shimmers it is not very detectable on the lips.

Review: Could I just say how impressed I am with this formula. It has that perfect texture of a balm smoothing over the lips very nicely but the pigmentation is awesome. They sort of remind me of Clinique Chubby sticks (which I absolutely adore) and Dior Addikt lipsticks. I know what your thinking “Comparable to Dior Addikt lipsticks get out of here”. But they are very same in terms of formula and the pigmentation is absolutely lovely. Revlon lip butters are more pigmented than both Dior and Clinique based on one swipe across the lips. There is no noticeable scent which is great and I try not to eat lipstick so I can’t comment on the taste of this lipstick. Packaging is well done and has a similar quilted design like the Colorburst line. Overall this is a great buy from the drugstore and I will be off to go find some more!

Cost: $6.49 – 11.49CDN @ local drugstore and supermarkets

Would I recommend this product? I totally would these have an amazing formula and they are very comparable to Dior Addikts lipstick line. I would buy more if they aren’t all out of stock everywhere I go.

Review: Clinique Chubby Stick in Woppin’ Watermelon

28 Mar

Hello everyone! This was the Clinique item I picked up seen in the last new stuffies post.

Review: I have been seeing these advertised quite a bit so I caved an bought it. Woppin’ watermelon is a bright pink color which turns out to be quite sheer on the lips. On the lips though it gives me a nice MLBB (my lips but better) color and brought a lot of color to my face. There is no scent and there isn’t as much product but the price is more palattable than Tarte’s lip crayons. Somethings I worry about are after I use it several times the tip will be pretty much down to a nub so it won’t be as accurate and number two is that I feel as if the lid can scrape off so product if I don’t put the crayon in properly.

Cost: $19.00CDN @ local counters or Sephora

Would I recommend this product? I would totally recommend this product and would give other colors a go once I find some money to buy others.
