Lip Loving

Recently I have been obsess with a variety of lip colors  and wanted to explore different colors and new brands.

Clinique Chubby Stick Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm in Mega Melon

 

This is the perfect summertime color!  I have loved using this lip product so far!  It adds a natural pop of color to my lips and can go with any outfit or with a night and day makeup look.  The variety of colors are amazing and I going to purchase more colors.  If you have any color recommendations let me know.  This is my new favorite lip product!  I can not wait to go and purchase new colors!

Bobbi Brown: Blue Raspberry

This is my favorite lipstick of all time!  I love it and have been using since college.  I love this color and it is such a classic.  One day I would like to get more colors from Bobbi Brown but for now I am set on this shade.  This is my go to shade an a classic one at that.  I love it and it has been in my makeup bag for the past few years!  A classic staple that will never fade.

Urban Decay: Sheer Liar

This is another lip product that I have been using on the regular now and I enjoy the color it adds to my lips and makeup routine.  I do not like how little it lasts.  It does not last long and fades rather quickly.  If you are looking for a color that stays the whole day then this is not the product for you.  I do like the natural look that this product provides for me and it is not an intense color for me or my makeup routine.  I will be interested to try another natural color from them in the future.

Benefit They’re Real Double the Lip: Nude Scandal

This is pretty expensive but well worth the price!  I love this product and will definitely buy again once I am out of this product.  It is part lip liner and lipstick.  So the top part is the lip liner and the bottom is the lipstick.  You apply the lip liner first and then apply the lipstick.  The colors match my natural lips so it adds just the right amount of color.  I would not have know about this lip product if the Sephora employee did not recommend it to me.  So, kudos to her for knowing such a good product.

Burt’s Bees Lip Balms

I love, love, love these although sadly I have ruined way too many of them by leaving them in my pockets and they wound up washed and I had to throw them in the trash.  But these lip balms are amazing!  They keep my lips hydrated and most throughout the day plus they smell great which is a plus.  The price is a little bit much compared to regular chapstick but it is totally worth it!

Not so lovable Lip Products

L’Oreal Riche Lipstick: Tropical Coral

This brand is great but the color of this lipstick is not.  For some ladies this might be a complementing color but for me it is not.  It is way to bright for me and does not work for most of my outfits.  Maybe if I was more tan than this color would work better for me.  So, I will be trying another color from this brand to see if it works for me.

Sephora Collection: Sweet Balm

The packaging is very cute on this product but the the product itself is another story.  It does not offer a hint of color unless you apply like 4 coats of it.  Plus the color is very bright pink which is too much for me so I am not loving it at all.  For some people the color might work but me it is just too much and I look a bit ridiculous with all of that pink on my lips.  This has been one of the worst products that I have used in a long time and I am sorry that I bought it.

Lip Products to Try:

Bobbi Brown Crushed Lip Color

I want to try this lipstick so badly!  I am in love with Bobbi Brown products and will just have to get my hands on this lipstick.  the packaging is so cute! I like the new take on the lipstick tube compared to the traditional tube of the Bobbi Brown lipsticks. In the meantime I will have to read reviews about it before I purchase the item.  Have any of you used this products?  What do you think of them?

M.A.C Lipstick

I have not tried nay M.A.C lipsticks yet and have heard so many good things about these products.  Plus the lipstick tube is so cute. I know they are known for their reds but I am not a red person.  Anyone have any color recommendations for a natural color for fair skin?  Let me know in the comments below.

Blogtember 25: September 25

Blogtember 25: Sunday, Sept. 25

Review something! A place, a book, a service, a product. Anything at all!

So, I need to get around to finishing Blogtember even though it is the middle October.  I am almost done with it and I want to get back to writing regular posts.

I am going to review three new makeup products I have purchased.

Tartiest Lash Paint Masacra by Tarte

tarte

I have loved using this product when doing my makeup.  I was looking for a different type of mascara and one that would not irritate my eyes.  My eyes are sensitive to certain products and chemicals.  Many massacres I use have caused my eyes to turn red, tear up, or be itchy.  this brand has not caused any eye irritation after I have worn it for a whole day or for a night out.

I love the style of the massacre tube and the applicator is great.  It does not leave my eyelashes clumpy.  I normally apply two coats of mascara on my top lashes and none on my bottom lashes.  My lashes are long and I do not need to apply to the bottom lashes.  Plus it will be a disaster.  I found that the price for this mascara is average for a good quality product.  I have loved using this mascara.

Urban Decay Vice Lipstick: Morning After

morning-after

Both lipstick colors are amazing and look good on me.  I am a simple makeup person and wear the basics mascara, eyeshadow, and lipstick.  I do not pick crazy colors or go to out of the box.  My style is simple and natural.  Both colors are natural looking and add just the right amount of color.  These last a significant amount of the day but not the whole day.  I do have to reapply the color to my lips.  The prices reasonable and is a goos price for the quality of the product.  In the future  I will purchase more colors from Urban Decay.  I would like to try new colors out the next time I buy.  If you have any recommendations on Urban Decay Lipstick Colors please let me know in the comments below.

Cover Girl Lash Exact Mascara

cover-girl-mascara

This mascara is a great find but it is not my favorite.  It does last all day but I do get clumps from it.  It does not irate my eyes if I wear it for shorter periods. It is a good buy for the price and can be found at most drugstores.  I would like to try more mascaras from Cover Girl because I have not used many products from this line.

L’Oreal Colour Riche: 444 Tropical Coral

This line of lipstick is classic.  My grandma used to use L’Oreal lipstick and the tubes of lipstick are memorable and iconic for me.  I do not know what colors she used but I always remembered these lipstick tubes and they have not changed. This is one of my favorite products of the moments!  I love this color!  I have not tried these colors before or this lipstick line but now I know why my grandma was a fan!  The color is fantastic and natural looking on me if I apply one or two coats.  This goes on nice and last for majority of the day.  I do need to reapply it for the color to last.  I will be trying more colors from this line soon!
