Lips of The Moment – Shades of Orange ♥

Although Summer is pretty much over and everyone is prepping for vampy lips and dark eyeshadow, I’m still stuck on my bright lipsticks. Orange is a color that I truly believe can be transitioned from Spring/Summer to Fall. Winter not so much. Since the days in New York are still a little warm I decided to show you guys my favorite Orange lippies! You still have time to rock this shade so feel free to make those lips stand out!

Lipsticks

Orange isn’t a color for everyone. It sort of falls into that drastic color box with purples, blacks, blue’s , and pretty much every other “different” lipstick color. I love to have fun with my lips so I decided to include different shades and pigmentations so that there’s something for everyone!

lips 1-91. Maybelline ColorSensational VividsElectric Orange : Definitely one of the truer more pigmented Oranges. This formula is amazing. Super creamy and glides right on. You do have to reapply throughout the day, but it does not dry out your lips.

2. NYX Butter LipsticksHot Tamale: Probably one of the truest Orange lipsticks you’ll ever find. Looks like an Orange Crayola straight out of the crayon box. Easy formula, Glides right on. Doesn’t stain the lips and is moisturizing.

3. YSL Rouge Pur Couture13: Super pigmented and moisturizing. Love the way it feels on my lips. Also very true Orange. You have to reapply with this one as well. Only thing I don’t like is this lipstick tends to feather so make sure you wear a lip liner with it.

4. Maybelline ColorSensational VividsVibrant Mandarin: This lipstick is more of a Reddish Orange. If you don’t really like stepping out of the box when it comes to lipstick colors but you want to stay on trend, this is probably one of the best fits for you. It definitely looks more Red than Orange but is clearly still Orange.

5. Revlon ColorBurst Matte BalmAudacious: First of all, let’s talk about my love for this product in general. It’s matte and the formulation is amazing! I also own the purple one and I love it. Although it’s matte, it feels amazing on the lips – not drying at all. The color isn’t as pigmented as I would love for it to be but it’s a very wearable Orange. Great for daytime!

6.  Too Faced Melted LipsticksMelted Coral: This is another matte lippie which is perfect for those of you who are not into the whole glossy lips thing. I have really dry lips 90% of my lifetime so for me, this lipstick is great when I pair it with a lipgloss, if not it’s not really my favorite. The color is very toned down so you can definitely get away with it during the day.

7. Wet ‘n Wild Megalast LipsticksPurty Persimmon – Umm, let’s talk about the price point for such an amazing product! I’m pretty sure I only paid $2 for this at the drugstore and sometimes they’re buy one get one 1/2 off. How amazing is that!? This is probably one of my most worn lipsticks because it lasts all day! The only two downfalls is that it is super drying on the lips and it also stains them. Other than that I totally recommend this lipstick, especially for the price point!

8. NYX Butter GlossCherry Cheesecake: I mean who doesn’t love NYX’ lip butter glosses? They’re a must have in anyone’s makeup collection! This is the perfect orange to wear either by itself or over a lipstick. It’s pigmented enough to wear alone but also light enough to wear on top of other Orange lipsticks.

9. Revlon Colorstay Moisture StainMiami Fever: This is a new product to me but so far I love the way it feels on my lips. The pigmentation is okay… I feel like it goes on very streaky but I love that it’s a bright Reddish Orange so it’s very wearable and can be daytime and night time appropriate.

 

So those are all of my favorite Orange lipsticks of the moment. I had a mixture of high end and drugstore which is amazing! I hope you guys found this post helpful when trying to choose an Orange lipstick. If you’ve tried any of these or have any other recommendations please leave them below.. We all know I love to try new products!

Blue Sparkle Prom Makeup ♥

Prom is right around the corner for some of us! I’m one of those people who just love to get dressed up so I would always look forward to prom when I was in High School. I was lucky enough to go to three different proms! ! 10th grade I was invited to a school nearby’s Junior Prom which was so much fun, 11th grade I had my Junior Prom, & of course 12th grade I had my Senior Prom. Out of all three of them my favorite dress was my Senior Prom dress. It was Royal Blue and gold, just beautiful. I felt like a Greek goddess!

I decided to do a few tutorials for you guys to have ideas on what type of makeup you wanted for your own proms! one thing is for sure, you’re going to look at these pictures forever, so you want to look your best!

In this tutorial, I used a blue eyeliner because I was thinking for my Senior Prom dress but feel free to use any color glitter and any color eyeliner. This is just a guide for you, make it your own and have fun!

I hope you enjoy this video, and if you do please like, comment, subscribe, and share with your friends!

Mini Haul – Ulta, Sephora, CVS ♥

Hey Guys!

The other day I got an email with a 20% off coupon for Ulta. The best part wasn’t that it was a 20% off coupon but it was one of the coupons that I was able to use on anything including the higher brands aka Urban Decay. Urban Decay is one of my favorite brands of all time, I mean I love many different brands but for some reason whenever I go to Ulta I end up in that section and alwaysss end up buying something. Well, this time around was no different. I picked up a few fun new Urban Decay products and a few other goodies as well.

Like usual, I wanted to share this with you so you guys can see what new products I’ve been buying and testing out. I was going to film this but literally could not find the time and the bag full of goodies was just sitting there waiting to be used. I did use some of the products already because I just could not contain myself but, I’m sure that doesn’t make a difference to you guys!

Either way, I hope you guys enjoy this post. Let me know which of these products you want reviews for and if you’d like me to do videos for hauls as well as blog posts!

(From left to right)

1. Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade – I’ve been trying to perfect my eyebrows so I decided to pick this up and I’ve been already obsessed with it as we speak! I talk about it a little in my January 2014 Beauty Favorites Video ! I picked this up in the color chocolate.

2. Urban Decay Naked Ultra Nourishing Lipgloss – This was something that wasn’t planned but I passed by it and just had to try! I’ve tried it and i’m still iffy on whether I like it or not so stay tuned for a review. I purchased this lip gloss in the color Walk of Shame.

3. NYX Butter Lipstick – I have two of these lipsticks in my collection already but I knew I wanted to purchase more. I don’t like to spend too much at the same time when I shop for makeup so I try to get one color each time. This time I decided to go with a Nude. I actually tried this one as well already and so far I’m on the fence about the color. We shall see how I feel later on as I continue to use it…

4. Wet ‘N Wild Mega Liner Liquid Eyeliner – This was another impulse purchase. Not necessary at all, whatsoever. As I walked down the aisle the bright blue just caught my attention. I plan on doing a tutorial with it eventually, I’m just not sure exactly what i want to do yet. I purchased this in the color Indigo Blue. Stay tuned for this product as well…

5. Urban Decay Naked Skin Ultra Definition Loose Finishing Powder – Well  that was a mouthful to say (or type in this case) . Besides the super long name, this product is something I like to call magical. Literally the second I saw it, I had to have it. I’ve only tried it over Foundation so I’m not quite sure how it would work by itself, but so far I am in love. Bye, Bye Bare Minerals Matte Foundation! You will deff. See a Review on this soon so stay tuned!

6. L’Oreal Magic Lumi Concealer/Highlighter – This was another impulse buy. I’ve been looking for a good highlighter/concealer combo that I can use before concealer so I decided to give this a try. Honestly, I tried this a few times so far and I’m not a fan. It’s gotten comfortable in my concealer drawer and I don’t think it will be coming out of hibernation for a while. Boo for bad buys!

7. Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz – I Needed This. End Of Story! I’ve purchased this before and ran out of it. I literally could not go one day without it and this is what actually brought me to Ulta in the first place. If you haven’t tried this product, Stop what you’re doing. Get in your car, and go buy it. Now. It’s literally amazing-ness in a stick! By the way, I purchased this in the color Brunette.

8. Macadamia Deep Repair Masque – Everytime I decide to purchase the actual regular size of this, it’s always sold out. Therefore, I end up settling for this little packet. Basically, If you haven’t tried this and you have hair that needs some repairing, you should probably go out and get this little sample packet. It’s so amazing. I will do a review on this as well at some point 🙂 Stay tuned!

10. Living Proof Samples! – I actually haven’t opened this little packet up so I’m not quite sure what is in it.

That’s everything that I purchased on my last few trips to the store! I hope you guys enjoyed this and if you’ve bought any new products let me know below, I always love to see what everyone else is buying and loving!
