Go To Lipsticks!

Hello hello! I hope you are well. I recently made a lipsitck post of all of my favorite lip colors, but I want to make a post about my go to, everyday lipsticks. Like most, I love my standard nude color but I also have one shade that gives a 90s brown spin on the everyday lip color. So let’s get to it!

Shroom from Lime Crime is such the perfect nude brown color. It has quickly become a staple in my lipstick collection. I love the staying power of this product and the 90s tone it has when applied with a darker eye. This color is so versatile that it matches with everylook. I wore this with orange hued eyes and that color combo was perfect. The one thing I will mention is the smell. At first, it wasn’t too bad, but after a bit, that is all  I can smell until it dries on my lips. After that, the smell is gone.lcshroom.jpgshroomswatch .jpg

The first is from NYX. It is from their soft matte lip cream collection. London is the perfect color for me. It is the color of my lips but it enhances it so much more. I love that it feels like a lip balm when applied but once dried, it feels so light and creamy. I wear this color so much and have it in my bag at all times. It matches every look I am wearing that day and looks so natural. abudhabilipcream.jpg

This lip color is also from NYX. Abu Dhabi is also from their soft matte lip cream line. It has more of a pink shade. I don’t tend to go for the pink shades because my skin color is towards the olive color. However, this color has just the right amount of pink. It’s such the perfect shade for my skin color. I go for Abu Dhabi when I have more of a neutral lip and want to add a bit of color. lipcreamlast.jpg

May Ipsy Bag!

Hello! May is here and it’s been a lovely month so far. My break has started, I’ve been reading books upon books, I’ve been feeling super motivated to post as much as I can, and of course, my May Ipsy bag has arrived!

The first product I received in my bag is from Urban Decay and is also my first product from this brand! It is the Afterglow Highlight in Sin. This champagne toned highlight is super pigmented and really leaves such a beautiful glow on the skin. I have been getting quite into highlighters lately so to receive another one perfect for summer is such a score! I love brushing this highlight of the tip of my nose, my brow bone, the inner corners of my eyes and of course my cheekbones. I love the glow this highlight provides and how long it lasts!

The next product is from Jelly Pong Pong Supercharged Super Intense Eyeshadow Duo in Electric wowed me to no end. These shadows are so pigmented, the fallout of this shadow is nonexistent and the colors are out of this world. This cute little shadow duo comes in a gold and rose gold color and while I don’t usually like shimmery shadows, these have me wanting to experiement with more shimmer.  (Gluten, Paraben and Cruelty Free)

The next is a hair care product from Beauty and Pin-ups. It is their Fearless Hair Rescue Mask. Now I have not used this product just yet but I am liking the thought of hair masks. A few months back in another Ipsy bag, I received a hair mask from Quai and I loved it, so I am quite excited to use another hair masks and see what it does to my hair!

More eyeliners? Anytime! Pixi by Petra and the Endless Silky Eye Pen in Black Noir is such a smooth, creamy and highly pigmented liner and one that doesn’t easily smudge. I am always on board for a liner as dark as the night sky and this one is pretty darn close. I love going over my strip lashes to cover up any glue or skin that I may have missed. This liner for sure does the job.DSC_1479.jpg

The last is from Caked Makeup and a brand I haven’t heard of until now. This Lip Fondant in Low Key is a nude red tone and is such a summer color. I haven’t used this product but I am ready for a bright summer color!

DSC_1458Can I also mention the stupidly cute makeup bag? It has ice cream cones and popsicles and I love the transparent style of this bag. The size of it also fits everything I need and more! Best bag since I’ve signed up!DSC_1474.jpg

What did you get in your Ipsy bag? 

Thanks for reading!
