April Favorites  — April 28, 2016

April Favorites 



Hey! It’s time for my April Favorites!

Favorite moment: Well, technically this will happen tomorrow, but my little monkey turns 7 tomorrow! 

Favorite movie: I cannot even express how much I love watching Zootopia. It was absolutely hilarious. 

Best returning show: undoubtedly The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. I binged watched all of season two in like 3 days. 

Best new show: The Path. Aaron Paul, a weird cult, suspense. What more could I want?

Favorite Hair Product: Not Your Mother’s Beach Babe Texturizing Sea Salt Spray. Smells like something I want to eat. Leaves my hair feeling soft, not dry and crunchy like most sea salt sprays do. 

Favorite Skin Care Item: Olay Regenerist Tone Perfecting Cream. Leaves my skin feeling super hydrated and smells yummy. I have seen a noticeable difference in dark spots, but I don’t have anything super dark to start with. 

Favorite Color Makeup Item: Jouer Powder Blush in Peony. I didn’t use this for forever, because it looks a little intimidating, but once I did, I was hooked. Here’s a swatch:


Favorite Eye Makeul Item: Clinique Higb Impact Mascara. I forgot how fluffy my lashes look when I use this. 

Favorite Lip Product: Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Lolita. The perfect “my lips but better”. Here’s a swatch:


Thing I couldn’t stop eating: Crush Grape Twizzlers. Even better than they sound. 


Nail product I couldn’t stop wearing: Floss Gloss Pro Nail Lacquer in Lean. The perfect shade of Purple for this warmer weather. 

I’ll see Saturday with a new post!

My favorite combos for ombré lips — April 21, 2016

My favorite combos for ombré lips


  
Hey! Today I wanted to show you some of my favorite combinations for ombré lips. Some are definitely more outrageous while others are more understated. 

  
Here I’ve used NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Copenhagen in the left and Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Lolita on the right. This is a pretty wearable look for everyday. 
  Here I’ve used NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Addis Ababa on the left and Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Ready to Wear Lip Tar in Pagan on the right. A little more daring. Be careful when working with Pagan. It can be super tricky. 
  
Here I’ve used Mirenesse Mattfinity Lip Rouges in London on the right and Milan on the left. Pretty wearable and super easy to blend. 
  Here I’ve used Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in Como on the left and NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Antwerp on the right. Antwerp isn’t my favorite shade on its own, but it works great here, or makes a pretty new shade when just combined with Como and blended well. 
  
Here I’ve used Manna Kadar Liplocked Priming Gloss Stains in All of Me on the left and All of You on the right. Whew! That’s a bit confusing, huh? 

What are some of you favorite combos for ombré lips? 

I’ll see you Saturday with a Face of the Day post!

Kleancolor Kiss For Keeps Liquid Lipstick test — April 14, 2016

Kleancolor Kiss For Keeps Liquid Lipstick test


Hey! So I got the Kleancolor Kiss For Keeps Liquid Lipsticks recently and I decided to put them to the test for you!

  
Here how it looked when first applied. Went on like a dream. Formulation was super smooth. 

  
This was about halfway through the day. Worn most of the way off already, just kind of left a lipliner looking bit. 

  
And here’s the end of the day. 

So, basically if say these are not long wearing at all. Less wear time than Stila and most definitely less than Mirenesse. 

I’ll see you Saturday with a new Face of the Day post!
