My picks: Milani Haute Flash Full Coverage Shimmer Lip Gloss in Flashy and Bobbi Brown Blush in Pale Pink

It’s no secret that I’m a pink gal, I’ve loved the color since I was a kid and I guarantee one day I’ll be an old lady sporting pink glitter nail polish.  It just makes me happy :)

The Milani Gloss is like liquid lipstick in a tube.  It packs a lot of pigment, the formula is opaque with just one swipe.  It’s definitely shiny and shimmery but not at all frosty.  The color is a bright, almost neon, fuchsia with blue macroglitter.  The texture is thick and has a little bit of slip to it.  It’s got some tackiness to it but not as sticky as most glosses (like a MAC Lipglass).  The color isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, but if you’re a pink girl like me, you’ll love how bright it is!

The Bobbi Brown blush {full review} is not at all a pale pink, so I’m not sure why it’s called that.  The website describes it as a “bright pale pink,” and I’m still trying to wrap my mind around that concept.  It looks crazy bright in the pan, my inner glitter/sparkle/hot pink monster would like to smear it all over my face.  Since society says that isn’t an attractive look, I apply it with a fluffy blush brush to get a sheer wash of color on my cheeks.

Both are a cooler toned bright pink, so they really look nice together.  I did a matte neutral eye with black liner.  I did a little wing at the end of my liner and falsies… just because…

Blushing with Bobbi Brown

30 Jul

Me:  “I got this really pretty blush from Bobbi Brown!”

Significant other:  “… he makes makeup?”

Me:  *rolls eyes*  Yes, the lead singer of New Edition is into the high-end cosmetics business.  That makes perfect sense.

Silly boyfriend talk aside, the makeup artist Bobbi (with an i) Brown makes some amazing products.  This blush is no exception.

A bright matte pink that isn’t powdery and wears all day?  That’s crazy talk! (more…)

Tarte Makes Me Peaceful

9 Feb

So I’ve  been in aesthetics school for almost a month now and I absolutely love it!  You know what I don’t love?  My busy schedule!

Although keeping myself busy and focused is a blessing in disguise, I still need things that help keep me balanced.  Cardio is one of them, and the second is the blush from Tarte.

What’s so great about it?  (more…)

Glam To Go, perf for when you’re on the go!

18 Jan

I feel like I’m always on the go.  I wish I had 45 mins to primp myself every morning (actually more like 2 hours if I’m being honest), or even BETTER… have a beauty team that preps ME!  However, I’m not a Kardashian.  I work full time and everything else in my life is squeezed in between that.  Keeping Up with the Kardashians = reality tv?  Puh-leease!

For us gals on-the-go, boy do I have a treat for you.

Lets take a peek (if you have time)… (more…)

2 Affordable Drugstore Blushes

28 Dec

Back in the day, women used to pinch their cheeks to get a natural flush of color.  Remember in Gone With the Wind when Brett shows up unannounced, and Scarlett O’Hara pinches her cheeks to compel a natural glow?

Well… adding color to your cheeks that way you risk breaking the capillaries beneath your skin… so luckily nowadays there’s an easier way.

Check out these blushes from  Physicians Formula and NYX.  Quality AND affordable?  Is it too good to be true?  (more…)

NARS Orgasm and Laguna

25 Dec

These are 2 of the most popular products by Nars.  Orgasm is part of Allure’s Best of Beauty Hall of fame, and Laguna is (arguably) their most popular bronzer.  Both are listed as “cult classics” on the company’s website.

Are they worth the hype?  (more…)

Where Have You Been All My Life? theBalm Review

15 Dec

theBalm theBalm, where have you been all my life?  I’ve spotted you at my local Sephora, but your brand isn’t as big as some of the others that they carry so I usually just pass right on by.  That is, until I read a review on Temptalia’s site about how outstanding your eyeshadows are.  After that, I was intrigued.  I had to try theBalm’s products.

Was she right?  Did they live up to my expectations?  Check it out!  (more…)

Benefits from Benefit

12 Dec

I don’t know about you all,  but I did some damage on Black Friday.  D.A.M.A.G.E.  I didn’t get up 4am to get a discounted television or anything like that.  I shopped online in my pjs, sans make up.  It was glorious.

I hit up Ulta.com to see what they had, and my attention was immediately drawn to the two Benefit powders for $19.

Where they worth it?  Let’s find out!  (more…)

Get Exited for Illamasqua Blush!

11 Dec

I was on Florida during the Sephora VIB sale this year, but that did not deter me from taking advantage of the 20% discount.  I found the nearest Sephora and got to work!

I had a list of things that I wanted to get… a few holiday palettes, NARS lipstick, some stuff from Tarte… but then, something stopped me right in my tracks… Illamasqua.

What’s the big deal?  Check it out! (more…)
