100 lipstick shades?!! YES PLEASE!!
Urban Decay has had their biggest release to date – their Vice lipstick lineup! The range is insane, everything from bold brights to versatile neutrals – something for E.V.E.R.Y.O.N.E. When I first saw the displays, my eyes widened with the sight of major lipstick overload ((is there such a thing?? I think not!)) Wende Zomnir – founding partner of Urban Decay, released her top TEN favorites from the line!! My thoughts?? KEEP READING!!

Becca Cosmetics recently released a new shade to their highlighter range, a limited edition neutral pale pink called ‘rose quartz’, and it may just be my favorite one from their entire line!!
More makeup = MORE STORAGE!!
As a makeup addict, with an always growing collection, I HAVE to have a way to not only store the products, but organize them functionally and aesthetically! And trust me, this is no easy task!! Some organizers are too small, too big, don’t fit in my vanity, etc. – A TOTAL HEADACHE!!
Here comes byAlegory to the rescue!!

Morphe’s latest collaboration is a 9-pan highlighter palette with Deysi Danger ((gifted to me by my gorgeous friend, ChanDra – @absolutely_makeup_obsessed on IG))!! The shades range from a gorgeous sparkling pale pink to a deeper glowing copper!
This year, Hourglass released a limited edition ambient lighting palette that they’ve named Surreal Light! Opposite of last year’s palette, this one contains all UNIQUE shades that aren’t found anywhere else in their line ((I happen to love exclusivity LOL))!! It contains 1 “universally flattering powder”, 2 blushes, 1 bronzer, and 1 highlighter. I initially wasn’t sold on the palette as I wasn’t sure if it would work on my NC15 skin tone. But after reading a fabulous review from one of my fair skinned babes ((Vanda at www.missviggitybeauty.com)), I knew I had to have it!!
And just like that, the holiday releases are HERE and showing no signs of slowing down! I’ve memorized my credit card number just for the occasion LOL!
The first holiday release ((you babes know there will be more – oops!)) that I’ve purchased is the Stila Star Light, Star Bright Highlighting Palette! This is a limited edition trio of highlighters that includes the shades; transcendence – an opalescent pink, kitten – shimmering nude pink, and bronze – a radiant sun-kissed glow.
NARS released a new hybrid lip formula this week ((although no longer available online – coming back October 1st)) called the Velvet Lip Glide. The Sephora site describes them as “an innovative, long-lasting lip color with a smooth, semi-matte finish that provides ultimate hydration. This highly-saturated lip color combines covetable comfort and confident shades in one smooth move. Its wand coats like a lipstick, yet glides on like a gloss. The finish is semi-matte, long-lasting, and non-drying for luscious, vibrant lips. Water lily flowers and white tea extract are infused into this hybrid lip glide for antioxidant protection and ultimate hydration.”
Any lip product description that reads vibrant, long-lasting, AND hydrating is totally my jam!! I ordered the shade ‘bound’ – a soft rosy mauve ((swatched below)), and OH. MY. GOSH!! Can’t stop, won’t stop!! Babes, these might just be the MOST COMFORTABLE LIP COLORS EVER!! Read More
It’s no secret, I am head over heels in love with liquid bronzers! I post about them often and always have one in my weekly rotation! I’ve gotten a couple of questions about how to apply them and why I’m so diehard over that liquid bronze! SO!! I thought I would share my tips and tricks with you babes! Let’s get started!
If you want me to lay it all out there, I will….
CONFESSION!! I don’t LOVE liquid lipsticks. There. I said it. Are we still friends? LOL! I don’t love them for two main reasons –
- The soft pink part of my bottom lip comes out pretty far so there’s always a substantial difference between the liquid lip color I’m wearing and that natural part of my lip. And trust me, it looks off…
- I’m a lipstick tube kind of woman – there’s something about carrying a tube and reapplying that makes me feel glam and put together. Weird? Meh – such is life! LOL!
SO! Here comes the YSL Vinyl Cream Lip Stains and I didn’t know what to expect. The Sephora site describes them as “a high-coverage liquid lip color with ultimate shine, comfort, and all-day wear. Dress lips in in full coverage color and high-impact vinyl shine with Vinyl Cream Lip Stain. Its diamond-shaped applicator allows for perfect lip contouring and color and glides on evenly in just one stroke. The creamy formula provides 10-hour wear and all day comfort so lips look and feel beautiful.”
I own the shades ‘404 nude pulse’ – a soft nude milky apricot and 412 rose mix’ – a rosy pink. My thoughts are below!Read More
