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…….

 

Saturday Makeup

Today was a wonderful day.  The sun was shining and the air was warm.  This was a gigantic welcome after the ice, snow, and cold the last few weeks.  I had a few errands to run and wanted to look my best while doing so, so here was my makeup for the day.

Bobbi Brown illuminating finishing powder compact foundation in Warm Walnut 7.5.  This is a new buy for me and I have been loving it.

Missy Lynn’s eyeshadow pallet – I just received this three days ago and I have worn it everyday.I used the the light and dark purples along with the bronze highlight color.  This pallet is gorgeous and the shadows are very pigmented. I am not sure if I was expecting it to be soooo good, but it is worth more than the price (although I am happy it wasn’t to expensive.) There was really no fall out, and the colors show up as they are in the pallet.  Sometimes I have had other purple shadows and they just look dirty or black.  I can barely see the purple, but this shows up on my skin perfectly.  Has anyone else tried this yet? I would love to hear your thoughts.

Mac’s Raizin blush – a long time favorite.

Too Faced Soul Mates blushing bronzer in Carrie & Big – Now, I admit that I am a sucker for a gimmick and if it has anything to do with my favorite television couples, it’s even better!  So this bronzer joins my Gidget and Moondoggie nail polishes in my prized gimmick possessions.  Oh, the product is not to bad either. 🙂

Clump Crusher mascara – this has become a favorite as well.

Milani’s Sangria lipstick – I can’t believe I have not worn this all winter.  Milani lipsticks are my favorite from the drugstore and this color if beautiful.

Miss Dior’s Blooming Bouquet – I will be doing a post of my favorite fragrances right now.  This is one of them.  So soft and no at all overpowering.

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!
