Kaepop Colourpop Lip Swatch

Hello everyone!

Sorry for not posting lately! That’s going to change, I swear. But today, I have a COLOURPOP LIPSWATCH for you guys. I love Colourpop and I really like Karrueche Tran. Colourpop had a 20% off sale, so I purchased the Colourpop x Karrueche Kpop collection.

Without further ado, here they are:

Saigon: Ultra Matte Lip

I usually stay away from reds because I think they look weird on my skin tone, but I absolutely love this! Such a beautiful red and it lasts basically all day. It’s a true red and ultra matte.

Chi: Ultra Matte Lip

At first, I thought that this color was too light for me, but turns out it’s a really good nude for tan/medium skin. On fairer skin, it looks like a mauve/brown. I recommend searching on Youtube and Instagram for people who are similar skin tones to you for this color.

Rooch: Ultra Matte Lip

This lip is the ultra vampy purple lip! I love it. It’s a very deep wine color and I think anyone can rock this!

ColourPop Lip Swatch

Hey guys!

Recently, I purchased some new Colourpop lippies and thought it would be fun to show you guys. A couple of them I already showed you guys, but I thought I would feature them again for people who haven’t seen.

Lippie Stix

Lippie Stix

I love the formula of these! I have them in the matte finishes, but unlike other mattes, they aren’t drying at all. Honestly, they have a slight shine to them, but I don’t mind. So they aren’t completely matte, but they definitely last a long time.

Ultra Matte Lipstick

Ultra Matte

I love both of these colors! Beeper is a really taupe color with purple undertones. If you want Kae, I highly recommend getting the lip liner with it, because it is really hard to apply without one. I love the color, but because it’s so dark, one mistake can make a big mess. But the color is amazing! Also the packaging is cute, because all of the products from Karrueche’s collection have gold detailing on them.

Ultra Satin Lipstick

Dopey

I only bought one of these because they were new and I wasn’t sure if I would like the formula. But it is amazing! A little bit of shine, smooth on the lips, and the color is perfect!

I hope you guys enjoyed! Feel free to ask me any questions!

My Favorite Lip Products for Winter

Hello everyone!

Happy New Year! I don’t know where you guys are from, but on the East Coast, we’re finally feeling the cold weather. Around Christmas time, it was really nice, like 70 degrees nice! But this week it dropped straight down to 30 degrees and now it’s feeling like winter. I love cold weather and snow, but I hate what it can do to my skin. Keeping your body moisturized is very important during the winter. Today, I wanted to share what I’ve been using for my lips.

I have two products I use throughout the year: Vaseline and Carmex.

I love Carmex! It works so well and is really inexpensive. I use it everyday! As soon as I put it on, my lips feel hydrated and it gives a healthy sheen. The Vaseline is what I used on my lips every night. It keeps them moisturized throughout the night, so when I wake up, I don’t have dry and cracked lips.

I have two new lip products I’ve added to my collection, specifically because they are good when it’s really cold.

They are the Tarte Amazonian Butter Lipstick in Tulip and Fresh: Sugar Honey Tinted Lip Treatment.

lipsugartarte

The Tarte Amazonian Butter Lipstick is way more pigmented and I wear it when I’m going out to see people and want to look “done”. It’s a muted pink, with brown undertones. I love it because it’s one of the most hydrating lipsticks I’ve ever worn and it has a mint scent when you put it on, which I love!

The Fresh Sugar in the color Honey, is more of my everyday, go to lip balm. It’s more of a tinted lip balm, so it’s perfect for when you want a natural look. I like this one because not only is the color natural looking, but it also has 15 spf in it to protect your lips. It also moisturizes my lips very well!

Hide Your Dark Circles with Lipstick

Hello everyone!

Today, I wanted to share a handy, little trick that I learned to hide under eye circles. I actually learned this method from Deepica Mutyala, but I changed the products she used to make it a bit more affordable. The idea is using a lipstick as a correcter. I choose the bright red Chaos by NYX, which was only about $4! Can’t go wrong with that.

NYX: Chaos

I prefer to do this after I put on my foundation, but feel free to do it before. All I do it take my pinky finger and tap on some of the Chaos on my dark circles. Also, I add some to the outer corner of my eyes because those are also very dark. I rub it out lightly, just to get it to not be too bright. You want a “haven’t slept in days/kinda dead” look, rather than a “by mistake I applied bright red lipstick to my eyes” look. Know what a mean? If not, here’s a picture.

Under Eye: Lipstick CorrecterBasically, just look like a tired zombie…

After that, I just add my concealer all over it. I use the Tarte Maracuja Creaseless Concealer. I prefer to tap it on with my finger. If you use a brush, pat the concealer in lightly, don’t drag the brush or else you’ll move your concealer and the red lipstick.

Correcter Lipstick

This bright red color is better for medium/olive skin tones close to mine. If you want to see which color is for you, check out this correcter site. For whatever color it says cancels out your dark circles/blemishes, just get a lipstick. You can use it as a double duty makeup weapon: correcter and lipstick!

Hope you guys enjoyed! Thanks so much for reading!

L’Oreal Colour Riche Lipcolour: Top 2 Favs

Hello there!

Today, I wanted to talk about two of my favorite colors from the L’Oreal: Colour Riche collection. They have 47 shades! Obviously, I haven’t tried every single one, but I have tried ten. I like them all, but my two favs are the ones I wear everyday. It’s the colors: Toasted Almond and Cinnamon Toast.

I love both of them because they’re so good for an everyday use. Toasted Almond is more of a nude shade and has and has the perfect light brown/pink look to it. Cinnamon Toast is darker and has a dark brown type of look to it. I like using it to add color to my face, while the Toasted Almond is for when I’m feeling more natural.

All the lipsticks I’ve tried from this collection are all amazingly moisturizing! I would usually put on chapstick before putting on my lipstick, but I don’t need to with these! They’re very creamy and make my lips feel so soft. The application is so smooth! The color usually lasts me about 2 hours, but my lips are moisturized for a long time, which I love! Definitely a great drugstore lipstick.

Also, the packaging looks cute and classy. It’s gold and has a cute gold band around the middle. It doesn’t open itself in my purse like other lipsticks do, which is exactly what I need.

I bought them from Target for $5.99, which is a great price for such a good product. Definitely worth it. I hope you guys enjoyed this review and let me know if you’ve tried them!

Edgy Look

Happy Friday everyone!

I hope that everyone is having a great start to the weekend! I wanted to share a quick edgy look. It’s pretty different for me, but giving yourself a new look is fun!

IMG_2109rev2

I used my BareMinerals Matte Foundation in Medium Tan and then covered up my dark eye circles with my Tarte Maracuja Creaseless Concealer. Then for my eyes, I used the NYX Natural Palete.

NYX NaturalFirst, I applied the light brown color, third from the right. Then, I just took little bits of the darkest color and patted it onto my eyelids. I didn’t brush it in, because I didn’t want the color to be too harsh. I was going for a soft dark look. Then, to give more of an edge I used my Wet N’ Wild Mega Liner to give a winged look. After that, I used the white color, all the way on the left to highlight my upper brow To finish the look off, I used the NYX Extra Creamy Round Lipstick in Chaos and blotted it out a little, and there you go!

Let me know if you guys like this look! Have a great weekend!

Bare Minerals: Marvelous Moxie Lipstick Review

Hello there!

So, I’m not usually a lipstick type of girl, but I saw this shade in Ulta and really liked it! It’s in the shade Rise Up. The description they give is a “luminous bronze”. My lips are darker around the corners, and I really like that this color evens out the color, while still looking natural. It’s more of a casual, classic, everyday shade, rather than the pop of colors (reds, pinks, neons), we’ve been seeing.

Besides the color, my favorite thing is the packaging. Unlike regular lipsticks, where the top can just slip off whenever, this one has a lock. You have to slide the silver button down, and that’s how the top comes off. No more worrying if your lipstick is messing up your purse!

IMG_1402 It’s really shiny, so if you’re looking for a matte lipstick, the Marvelous Moxie line probably isn’t the right one. But, it’s really moisturizing and actually lasts me a long time. The only downside to it, is the price. It’s $18.00, which I guess compared to other brands, this is fairly low, but still. Honestly, I feel like it’s worth it, because if it does it’s job and doesn’t break in half, like other lipsticks, why not? Also, a little of this goes a long way and you don’t have to reapply too much, so it lasts.

Let me know if you’ve tried any of the Moxie Lipsticks and if you liked it or not!

Thanks for reading guys!
