A couple of favorites

A few months ago before the craziness that we are now in, I went on a small shopping spree at the Shoppes of Atlanta.  The past year, I have been trying not to purchase new make up simply because I would like to use up all of the items that I have.  That didn’t stop me from stopping into The Cosmetics Store.  It also didn’t stop me from buying two new favorites that I added to my already full makeup drawers.  I know!  I am my own enabler.  🙂

I have been wearing this lipstick and blush pairing regularly since I got them.  The lipstick is by Mac and named Stay Curious.  It is one of their Powder Kiss lipsticks.  I absolutely love it.  It came out early last year I believe, but since I was in a no buy mindset, I had no idea it existed.  It has a matte look which is my favorite, but not drying.  It’s a very flattering color and I imagine it would be flattering on any skin tone.  I usually wear it with my chestnut lip liner but it’s really not necessary.  I can just throw it on and it looks great.

The blush I purchased is by Becca.  The color is Tigerlily.  It’s gorgeous and luminous.  I love blushed but just don’t go through them very quickly.  Knowing that, I’m glad that I seem to be using this one a lot and can actually see an indentation from use.   It almost makes me feel less guilty from purchasing it.

That’s just my rambled for today.  Everyone…take care and stay safe and healthy.

Til next time…….

 

National Lipstick Day 2018

Every year I try not to miss posting on this day because I love lipstick and gloss.  I may not wear it everyday, but I love having all of the options.  I tend to gear more towards natural looking looks, but also love purples and red’s.  I have two really great lipsticks that are in regular rotation.  The first, which I am wearing in the photo,  is Urban Decay’s Sheer Rapture lipstick Rouge A Levres.  The second is Chanel Rouge Coco Shine 46 Liberte.   Both are super similar in color in their pinky brown shade.

Talk to you all soon~

National Lipstick Day 2015

Today is National Lipstick day.  Last year, I posted the lipstick that I was wearing that day, and decided to do the same this year.   This is Flirty Fuchsia by Milani.  I love this color.  A bold lip color can make quite a statement and be a reminder of how great rocking one can be.  What lip color are you wearing today?

A few new fall essentials

Since it has been getting colder here in Georgia, I have been in need of a few more long sleeved shirts.  I purchased a shirt from Torrid that is a long sleeve v-neck with hearts all over it. I also purchased a long sleeved shirt that is a similar material to a thin sweatshirt from Lane Bryant.  This one has shiny snowflake-like designs all over it.  I raced around to 4 stores to find this one in my size as it went on clearance very quickly.  Ironically, I found a similar one as I was dashing around town at Dress Barn that was made of a thinner material and a darker gray color.  I already wore that one, so forgot to take a picture but I will put a link below if I can find one.

Of course, no month would be complete without a few beauty buys so I did get a few new lip colors at the Sephora VIB event.  I purchased another Matte creme lip crayon from Bite Beauty in the color Aubergine.  This was actually the color that I wanted when I purchased the color cognac which was mentioned in one of my previous posts, however the Sephora that I was at was out of that color at the time.  A Kat Von D lipstick also made its way into my shopping basket.  I got Studded Kiss lipstick rouge a levres in the color prayer.  This color is beautiful and since matte’s are my favorite formula for lipsticks, so I know I will love it. I also came across a new item from Josie Maran called the Coconut watercolor lip stain. I got the color Coral Oasis.  I really love it!  It has a lip stain on one side, and gloss on the other.  This is probably a color more suited for spring/summer but I think it’s beautiful and wore it most of the day yesterday.  I also purchased my favorite from Fresh which is the Sugar tinted lip treatment in the color rose.  I have been addicted to these for a couple of years.  They are so moisturizing, and I like to wear it not only during the day, but at night to keep my lips from getting chapped.

Finally, I have become somewhat addicted to perfume roller balls.  I have bought practically every scent by Marc Jacobs.  Roller balls seem to be perfect for me since I find that the sprays last forever and I will rarely finish them before getting tired of the scent.  I have a few favorites that I will wear forever and never get sick of such as Dior’s Ja’dore, but for the most part…roller balls are the way to go.

Well there you go!  A new post that helps me sort out my shopping obsession.  I will talk to you all soon!

Fall lip colors

With the fall season finally here, I have purchased two fall lip colors. Normally in the fall, I have always stuck to reds, but I have been loving two new colors.  Mac’s Lingering Kiss (top photo) which is from their A Novel Romance collection and also a new find from Bite Beauty’s new Matte Creme lip crayon in Cognac(bottom photo). I have taken a picture with both colors on and swatched them next to each other.   Enjoy!

National Lipstick Day 2014

I was reminded via Bobbi Brown Cosmetic’s twitter that it was National Lipstick Day.  I don’t own a lipstick by her makeup line, but I hope to remedy that someday with those beautiful art sticks, but here is what I am wearing today.  Josie Maran’s Argan Love Your Lips Hydrating lipstick in Berry Bliss. This is one of my favorites because I can just slather it on and it never gets to heavy.
