Let's Talk Lippy's

Ok all it's been a while I know, but it has been so nice here lately that sitting in the house blogging just did not hit high on my list! I am sorry but I do love you all. Now that spring is here! I want to talk about my favorite lippy's for this spring. While fall is ox bloods and vampy reds, spring is pinks and corals and I am so happy that its time for these fun, girly, flirty colors!

So let's get into my top my Lippy's for Spring and into Summer!

5. Wet n Wild Matte Lipstick in Dollhouse Pink
         This is a beautiful Barbie pink that makes you smile radiant! I love how it looks against my darkening skin, I think that it makes it look even darker than it is!


4. Jordana Balm Stain in Candied Coral
           Again this is a beautiful lipstick that is not only a perfect color for spring it is the perfect for no fuss no muss lippy application.  This stains the lips, so even after the main color has worn off you still have a beautiful coral tint to your lips that will look great at the beach!

3. Em Cosmetics Creamy Sheer Lipstick in One True Kiss
         This is a perfect my lips but better sheer pinky neutral lip color that is great when you are rocking the eyes and need a toned down shade. 


2. Urban Decay Revolution in Anarchy
           Isn't this cute little deluxe sample the cutest lippy you have ever seen! Anarchy is one of the most vibrant hot pinks I have seen, and I just love how it looks on the lips. This is a highly pigmented color and I plan to purchase more of this line in the future!

And My Favorite
1. My Beauty Addiction HD Lip Paint in Flaunt
        I am sure this is of no surprise to some of you as you already know that I am already obsessed with this lippy, but for those of you that do not know..... I am obsessed! This is a beautiful coral.orange color that is so unique. It is like no other lippy I have seen before. I will tell you all that pigmentation of the lip can change this gorgeous color drastically. So what I do when I want this color in all its glory it I prime by lips with either a lip eraser or for even more vibrant color a NYX jumbo pencil in milk before apply the lippy. Then you will get this PERFECT color in all its glory

My latest video on youtube is a tutorial using the Bora Bora palette that many of us got in our last Ipsy bag! It is a fun summery daytime look. Check it out and don't forget to subscribe!

I'm Dreaming of Spring

Makeup Monday
So it has been an Arctic Never-land around here for far to long, but the other day we got a days reprieve when the weather decided to give us a 60+ day. And oh what a glorious day it was! This made me dream of Spring even more and inspired a beautiful green spring eye look to rock for the day.






To Create this awesome look I used 2 Wet N Wild Color Icon Trios. I Dream of Greenie and Cool as a Cucumber. (If you look above I numbered each color from the palettes so that you can eaisly recreate this look.) So taking color number 6 I put that on the inner and outer thirds of the lids with 3 in the center. Then I took 5 & 2 into the crease and blended it out with 4. Using 1 very lightly on the browbone. I just love how it looked on my eyes and made me feel all Springy all day!

Here is a look at it in video on this quick keek!

To finish out the look I used my City Color Matte blush in Fresh Melon, which is a fantastic, highly pigmented blush that is super creamy and looks so great for the Spring! As well as my Pop lipgloss is Peony Petal which is a my lips but better color that I am just loving.











It was a super easy look to pull off and looked great with my hazel eyes, but I think that it would look great with any eye color and skin tone. Give it a try and see if you don't feel all Springy!! Lol is that even a word, oh well it is now. I always make up my own words.

Happy Makeuping my beauties and I'll see you all real soon. Please don't forget to subscribe to my youtube channel for even more Makeup Fun! Plus who knows what else.

So it's that time of the month again, no not the one that makes you a chocolate eating monster and more of a raving lunatic than you usually are. ITS IPSY TIME!!
For those of you that do not already know.... 
Ipsy is the best monthly subscription box that I have found! No foil packs, only full sized or deluxe samples are included from much loved brands that include but defiantly not limited too, Urban Decay, Benefit, BH Cosmetics, Sexy Hair, The Balm, Pop Beauty, etc... All this comes in a new pretty bag each month instead of a box like all over services. This makes even what it comes in useful!
For a more in-depth look at Ipsy and past bags check out this
>>>>Link<<<<

All of this for only $10 a month including shipping!

Without further ado here is the February 2014 The Look of Love Bag
 Come on now, a pink bag, how could I not love that. If you know me at all you know I love pink! I just think this bag is simple and classy and just perfect. On a whole the contents of the bag was also a huge hit for me, and I am still a big advocate that Ipsy is the best subscription service out there!


This Dr. Lin Acne Spot Treatment could not have come at a better time for me. I have this demon that has decided to pop up right on my chin and in just a few days this stuff as dried it up without totally drying out the skin around it! YES! I am loving.

This stuff comes in a 1oz tube and retails for $7.50. Ipsy sent me a .5oz sample that would retail at $3.75



This Eyetini Eye Cordial Shadow + base is a beautiful color and a great creamy consistency. This would make a great base under a lot of the darker tones in the Naked 3 palette, as well as on its own as a one shadow look as it blends beautifully.

A full size of this cream eyeshadow is .14oz and retails for $18.00 (my video says $14, that was a mistype) This was a full size product worth $18.00!



 
Zoya come on need I say more, This is the third Zoya I have received and I am not mad at all, I love this product but can never bring myself to spend the $9.00 to get it lol so I love when Ipsy sends it. And this color OMG the perfect spring purple called Odette.

This was a full sized product worth $9.00






Pop Beauty Plump Pout in Peony Petal, this is a beautiful pinky coral color and also will be perfect for spring. I have not worn it enough to tell you lasting power yet, but it is not overly sticky!

A full size is .3oz and retails for $16.00! This was a .14oz sample worth $7.52






And finally a City Color Be Matte Blush in Fresh Melon! I am already in love with this blush and it just makes  me yearn for Spring! It will be so perfect with a nice coral flush on the cheeks SO excite!!

This was a full size worth $2.99






Again this was a great bag and I love everything in it and can not wait to rock my Spring looks using these products.. I am going to be the most awesome made up girl in my small town. lol Love it


Bag Total: $41.26

That is awesome being that I only paid $10 including shipping for this bag. Another knock out of the park for Ipsy!!!

NAKED 3 ~ Yeah Baby!!!

Ok so just like all the other makeup junkies I know, I have been drooling over this palette since I first heard about it. and was dying to get my hands on it. Luckily I have a husband who loves me very much, so I got it for Valentine's day! What a perfect present, I also got a new camera so that I could stop recording my YouTube videos on my Iphone, which was a huge headache. but more on that later.

I mean come on how can a hazel eyed girl pass up these beautiful rose gold colors. Well she can't at least this one could not at all. There was just no self control when it came to this palette. I WAS GOING TO HAVE IT! and I have not been able to put it down since I got it. I defiantly see it coming in a favorites video soon and most likely more than one this year lol!
So lets just jump right into the swatches, then I will share my favorites as well as my favorite blush and lippy pairing for this palette.
*Note all swatches are without primer!




Ok my absolute favorites in this palette are dust, limit, factory, and nooner! Now do not get me wrong I LOVE them all but if I had to pick it would be these 4!
Now let's talk about strange a little bit. This color has changed my life. I have never been a matte brow bone kinda person, in all honestly I had never tried it, but since getting this palette I decided why the hell not! AND OMG I love it! There is just something about a matte highlight that I am just loving! I cant explain it but it just does something that is well for lack of better words AWESOME!


My favorite pairings for this palette so far of been of course the Benefit Rockateur blush, it just compliments all the colors in this palette perfectly! There are 2 lippys that I love with this palette so far and they are the Jordana Twist & Shine in Honey Love and CoverGirl Outlast All Day Lipcolor in 587 Pink Pearl!

Here is a Keek showing one of the looks that I created with this palette.


Here is another look that I posted on Instagram

Let's Talk Beauty Blunders

Makeup MondayCome on ladies do not lie, we all have done them at one time or another, hell some of us still do them. Knowing or not! Some beauty blunders to some are stylish to others. Kinda like one mans trash is another's treasure. So just because I call something a blunder, please do not take this as an insult! If you like it then wear it and OWN it, I know I do!




Now on to the beauty blunders:
  1. To sharp of a contour
    1. when you apply contour (bronzer) be it powder or liquid you want to keep it sharp but still blend it. It should fade from sharp to blurry. (does that make sense?) Also make sure that the bronzer you are using is not to orange, muddy, or has simmer in it. 
  2. To much blush
    1. This is one I have been known to willingly be guilty of, I like blush and I think that if done right over blushing can be cute. Of course you will need a lite lip and a lite eye to pull this off, but when you are piling it on like a clown with over done eyes and lips as well it is just way to much.
  3. To Dark of foundation
    1. Ok I get it you want to look tanner, but using a foundation that is to dark for you looks like just that... foundation that is to dark for you. Instead use a self tanner then get a foundation to match the tone of your face while you have your tan applied. 
  4. Not grooming you eye-brows
    1. These are easy to forget about, but trust me your makeup will look much better if you keep your eye brows properly groomed. Your eyebrows frame your face and it is important to make sure that your frame is in great condition. 
      1. My favorite place for perfect every-time eye brow grooming is a Benefit Brow Bar of course. 
  5. Over drawing the lips
    1. It is ok to go out side of the line by like itty bitty bits (yes that is the technical term) but trying to drawl your lips to look like Angelina Jolie is just going to make you look like you are ready to perform in a circus. 
And Last but not least
    6. Not taking care of your canvas
               1. If your skin is dry and flaky your make up will stick to those spots and will not blend
                   out and look natural. So always make sure that you are moisturizing and keeping your                          skin hydrated and radiant.

So am I leaving any out? I am sure that I am, but these are the things that I notice people doing. Let me know the beauty blunders that you have done or that you notice people doing!

Benefit B Radiant Skincare Review

Where do I begin with this product, I love Benefit and really wanted to love this skincare line. I mean the packaging is adorable, and the promises are awesome. I have never found anything from Benefit that I just HATED, ok hate is a bit strong but you know what I mean. These products were just not for me and in my opinion should not be used on ANYONE's face!

As an introduction to this skincare line and so that I could adequately review it for you I purchased the sample pack that included the Cleanser, Polish, Toner, Moisturizer, Face Cream as well as the Eye cream.
So lets dive right in....

OVERALL
I found the fragrance of these products to be extremely strong, like that of I perfume. Which in my opinion should never be put on the face! This is my main concern with this skincare line, I can not stress the potency of the fragrance in these products. And the eye cream made my eyes sting and water like nothing else ever has. I am sure that most of that had to do with the STRONG perfume within each of these products.

For the complete review please check out this youtube Video!
