Danimer: Liquid Lipsticks

July 10, 2017

I always see these liquid lipsticks on eBay, but pass them up, thinking that I can’t get a good quality lipstick for 99 cents. When I made a little extra money this month, I decided to just go for it and buy the entire set of 38. I paid $35 for the set, receiving a small discount for buying them all at once, with free shipping. It took about two weeks for them to show up in my mail box. Warning, this will be long.

L’Oreal Infallible Total Cover Kits

July 7, 2017

This is a double review of the newer L’Oréal Infallible Total Cover Color Correcting Kit and the Concealing & Contour Kit. The Color Correcting Kit (225) claims to disguise dark circles, combat discolorations, neutralize redness, and brighten dullness. The Concealing & Contour Kit (220) claims to conceal dark circles, cover imperfections, hide scars, and professionally contour. Apparently L’Oreal is really concerned with my dark under-eye circles! What are you trying to say, L’Oréal?! Rude!

Lorery e Fashion: Eyeliner Pencil

July 5, 2017

While browsing eBay for a new purse, I can across this 12-pack of eyeliners and was immediately intrigued. It was only $6 for all 12 eyeliner pencils and they were all black. What more could I ask for? I immediately added them to my cart and then sat back and waited. And then I waited and waited and waited. It took almost a month, but one day they appeared in my mailbox. I had almost forgotten I ordered them! I will admit that I hadn’t ever heard of Lorery e Fashion before purchasing these eyeliners and I can’t find an English review of these liners online. Yay for being first for once!

Monave: Loose Mineral Foundation

June 26, 2017

I may be pregnant, but that shine coming off my face is not a glow. It’s oil. I have the strangest skin. It’s oily in some spots, dry in others, and average in tiny sections. Most foundations cater to one area and highlight the flaws on the rest. I’ve been known to use two to three different formulas at once. Loose powder foundations have always worked well on the oily sections of my face but made my dry spots look horrendous, so I was hesitant to try this Monave Loose Mineral Foundation. I first ordered the sample size of the shade Claire, and later purchased the full-sized version since it was a great match.

My Lip Care Routine

June 23, 2017

I got a request from an aspiring beauty blogger on this subject and the more I thought about it, the more I realized how much my nightly lip care routine means to me. I’m a lip product junkie, through and through. I don’t care whether we’re talking about a cheap lip balm or a high-end liquid lipstick; I want it. But the more lip swatches I do for this website—and for my own daily makeup—the drier my lips get, especially when I’m using a matte liquid lipstick like the Kylie Cosmetics line. Since I just placed a pretty massive liquid lipstick order, I thought this would be a good time for me to reflect on my lip care routine, and share it with all of you. Will all the lippie lovers raise their hands?!

Zuii Organic: Diamond Sparkle Blushes

June 19, 2017

Yes, yes, another Zuii Organic product review. Before you roll your eyes at me, I just want to say that I am in love with not only the products that Zuii Organic sells, but the company itself. A big shout-out to Alyx who I have texted about the dumbest of things and gotten a heartfelt response from. Okay, enough sap, onto the review! These Flora Diamond Sparkle Blushes are relatively new. Zuii does have another line of blushes, but these are more sparkly and multitask as highlighters. I have five colors to review for you, which will be pictured in this order: Berry, Blossom, Mango, Melon, and Raspberry. The only shade I don’t have is Peach. Mango and Blossom are both vegan-friendly shades.

Mary Kay: Eye Primer

June 16, 2017

A good friend of mine used to sell Mary Kay beauty products and when she went out of business after having a baby, she decided to sell her inventory of products at a discounted rate. What a great time to try out the Mary Kay Eye Primer! A girl can never have too many eyeshadow primers, can she?

Red Apple Lipstick: Gluten Free Lipstick

June 12, 2017

A few months ago, a friend and I were at lunch and her makeup was so perfect that even our waitress was throwing her compliments. There I was, bare-faced and jealous. Like a true friend, she pulled a lipstick out of her bag and handed it to me. I applied it and checked myself out in the reflection of my spoon. My lips were this gorgeous pinky-nude and felt amazing. I looked at the tube in my hand. Red Apple Lipstick. When she told me that it was paraben and gluten free, I was intrigued. It took me an eternity, but I finally got my hands on Audrey and Berry Blast, as well as some samples.

Zuii Organic: Flora Limited Edition Lipstick in Petal

June 10, 2017

After the honeymoon, Zuii Organic and I were walking hand-in-hand through the park when we came across a buschel of light pink azalea flowers. I said, “Oh, I wish my lips were this color.” Just then my phone buzzed and an alert popped up saying: “ZUII ORGANIC NOW MAKES A PINK LIPSTICK CALLED PETAL. HURRY! IT’S A LIMITED EDITION SHADE.” So I nagged at my new bride until this flora lipstick was in my hands. What’s that you say? You don’t believe my story? Well that’s exactly how it happened.
