I bought this lipstick from MAC before my vacation to Greece a few weeks ago, and I’m obsessed with it! When I walked over to the counter, I wasn’t looking at anything specific. However, I have been eyeing “Velvet Teddy” for awhile and wanted to see what it looked like in person. After seeing it in person, I knew it would be waaaay too light for me. Then I looked at one called “Taupe“, and fell in love. The girl who walked over to me asked if I wanted to try it on, but I told her “No, I just want to buy it!” I KNEW it would look great, and so I happily walked over to the counter (as my mom looked on, rolling her eyes) and bought the lipstick! & In my opinion, it looks fabulous!
My favorite words when it comes to makeup are SALE, & LIMITED-EDITION. ESPECIALLY limited-edition. I automatically buy a product I’ve been eyeing if I see it says limited-edition; it’s a BAD habit but I just can’t help myself! The other word I loooove is of course, SALE. I mean, WHO DOESN’T?! I got these new babies at a store called Amazing Savings & let me tell you – I was shocked when I saw how cheap they were there! I got two Maybelline Color Tattoos for $1.99 ea (Reg price: $5.99 ea) & this L’oreal Extra Intense Eyeliner for $2.99 (Reg Price $8.99 ea)!
I’ve tested all three products and I love them ALL! If you like to see a review on any of the products below, OR want a pictorial using these products, Let me know in the comments below! If you live near an Amazing Savings, go check out their cosmetics corner & tell me what deals YOU find! x
I walked into my local drugstore with my neighbor a few weeks ago & even though I had no intentions of buying anything new – I walked out with two products! I truly didn’t want to buy anything, mainly because I had no money on me & also because I’m trying to save for my vacation in 2 weeks, however, she offered to buy me something if I really wanted it – so how could I say no?! Haha!
These are two products I’ve been eyeing for quite some time: Maybelline’s Instant Age Rewind Concealer in the shade Honey & Wet N Wild’s Lipstick in Cherry Bomb! I’ve tested out both products & have had positive results with both! I’ll post a FAB or DRAB review on the concealer within the next few weeks & I’ll post a First Impression post on the lipstick as soon as I wear it out! x

So up until my 22nd birthday last month, I never wore highlighter. I never felt the need to highlight my face, especially because I never wore foundation, so I didn’t feel it was necessary. However, my brother and his girlfriend gave me makeup for my birthday and one of them was a Hard Candy highlighter! Below I’ll feature the name, brand, and swatch – compared to Benefit’s Watts Up!
As you can see, both swatches are pretty similar. However, the Watts Up is lighter in color, and of course, the texture is creamy vs the Hard Candy one which isn’t. I’ve been using the Hard Candy one almost daily, being as I’m not too big of a fan of creamy products. However, that doesn’t mean Watt’s up isn’t a great product! This was a sample size I got from Sephora on my birthday last year and since you don’t need loads – it’ll last for a LONG time! The Hard Candy highlighter I’ve been using for about a month now and you can see it still has it’s shape! I’ll own this literally until I’m like 90! Gotta love finding affordable products that are long-lasting!!
When I went to see Bruno Mars in July (which was absolutely AMAZING!!!) I borrowed a pink top from my friend, & wanted a matching pink gloss. I ran to Rite Aid before getting ready to see if I could find just that – boy was I wrong. I didn’t have much time to get ready, so I just grabbed the first pink gloss I found. I don’t even remember the brand, the shade, nothing. I hated it! I gave the lipgloss away to my aunt. It did not give me any color payoff whatsoever! It was super translucent, but looked really opaque in the tube – oh the joys of makeup.
I ended up wearing my Lime Crime Velvetine (in the shade Red Velvet) which is my absolute FAVE red lipstick ever. I figured, the shirt is dark enough, I could get away with wearing a red lip with the pink top. Then of course, days later, I find the perfect pink lipgloss. It’s Rimmel London’s Stay Glossy in the shade 360 Fuschia Fever. You’ll see in the swatch, the pigment is amazing! It claims to last up to 6 hours & add shine. I haven’t worn it for long enough to know if it has that staying power, but it DEFINITELY adds shine & color!
Anyone own this gloss? If not, you MUST!
