Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lipcolor: My New Drugstore Obsession

*Pssst, have you entered my giveaway?!*

Hey there, beauties!

Long time no blog! I have missed you so all much, but now that the hectic part of December is over, I am back to posting regularly! *whoop!*  I am so excited, because today, I am reviewing a product that has quickly become  HOLY GRAIL for me. *Drum roll* Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lipcolor!

IMG_2028

At first sight, I knew that I needed these babies in my life and I am in love with everything about them from the packaging to the formula… even the scent smells like heaven!  Let’s jump into the review!

First off… THE PACKAGING.  Let’s all just take a moment to stand in awe of all of its beauty.  These tubes are glass with in a matte finish.  They feel like a very durable high end product and I absolutely love the way that they look.  My only complaint is that the shade number and name are not displayed anywhere except for tiny print on the sticker, which has to be removed in order to open the bottle.

The formula is super pigmented and very moisturizing.  I was surprised when I first tried these out by the fact that these are nothing like liquid lipstick.  Instead, they are a gloss that really stays put and has no shine.  I’m not exactly sure that this glorious creation could fit into one category.  If lipgloss and liquid lipstick had a baby, it would be this product.

Since they aren’t as matte as a liquid lipstick, they smudge off a bit when eating or drinking, but they leave behind some color and never completely disappear.  On top of staying put forEVER and never getting stuck on my teeth, these glosses smell like fruity deliciousness and make me wish that I could eat an entire tube of the stuff.  It sounds gross, but smell this gloss and you’ll probably be wishing the same thing!

These Lipcolors are $8.50 a piece, which makes them a bit on the pricier side for a drugstore product… but they are so high quality that I think they are worth every penny!  In my opinion, these glosses are better quality and look much more flattering on me than most high end lipsticks.  I tend to shy away from bright lips, but with THESE, my lips actually don’t look dry or cracked for once in my life.  Also, the applicator makes them extremely easy to have a nice, clean edge.

Now for the swatching! *squeel*

Firstly, 610 HD Addiction is a gorgeous deep plum shade.  I love how it has a whitening effect on my teeth instead of making them look yellow as some brighter colors can.  Even though this shade is pigmented, it is not in your face and you don’t have to worry about it ever getting on your teeth or smudging!

IMG_2038IMG_4415610 HD Addiction Revlon

625 HD Love is even more vibrant than the previous shade.  Somehow, I am absolutely obsessed with this color even though I usually am terrified or orange-y reds.  This color doesn’t make my teeth look yellow and it actually doesn’t seem too overpowering.  I highly recommend this for the season of red lips and Christmas vibes!

625 hd love revlon625 hd love revlon625 hd love revlon

615 HD Temptation is your perfect everyday pink shade.  It seems to me like it would be a very universally flattering tone for everyone.  I think this shade is a great pick if you want a natural pink lip product for every day wear that won’t rub off and is super moisturizing!

615 hd temptation revlonIMG_4433615 hd temptation revlon

Lastly, we have 630 HD Seduction.  I had to try out a nude shade since they’re my favorite!  I have never before bought a product that matched the natural color of my lips SO perfectly!  It enhances the look of my lips but doesn’t even look like I’m wearing anything.  I’ve been dreaming about finding a product like this for my entire life up to this moment.  That may be a bit of an exaggeration, but I am extremely excited about my discovery!  I now wear this product every day. I recommend it so highly!

affordable makeup for oily skin

Affordable Matte Skin: My Top 3 Drugstore Picks

Hey there, beauties!

I don’t know about you, but for me the struggle of the oily T-zone is real.  I always am on the lookout for products to reduce and prevent shine so I don’t end up looking like a disco ball by the end of the day.  Don’t get me wrong, I love having a glow to my skin, but without products that combat shine, I pass the point of glowing to instead blinding everyone around me with the powers of my radiating complexion… not to mention that having oily skin makes it extremely difficult for foundation to last longer than an hour without melting off of my face.  If you suffer similar oily skin probz or if you just enjoy that shine-free 90’s look, I hope that my top 3 drugstore picks will be your oily skin saviors (without breaking the bank)!

affordable makeup for oily skin
In order to achieve a matte and poreless complexion, priming is a really helpful step to take. When I forget to prime my skin, I feel like I can visibly see the foundation disappearing into thin air within minutes of putting it on.  Recently, I discovered  No7 Beautifully Matte Makeup Base, which is absolutely AMAZING at taking away any trace of a fraction of shine.  When I first tried this out, I was terrified by the almost chemical scent that it has, but when applied, it is not strong or overpowering at all -in fact, I couldn’t even tell that it had a scent once it was on my face.  The second this primer touches your skin, it’s as if the shine and oils are literally zapped out of existence in front of your eyes.  I find that I need more to use more of this product than I do with the typical primer since it is so tacky and doesn’t spread a long ways.  The upside to that fact is the tackiness makes foundation stay.  It keeps my face shine-free and my foundation doesn’t move a centimeter.  I highly recommend this product if you’ve been wanting to try a mattifying primer.  I even believe that this product is better than Benefit’s Porefessional… that’s a high compliment coming from a girl who went through many, many tubes of it!  A huge plus is the price is just $12.99!IMG_2010 (2)

The next product I love for mattifying my foundation is Rimmel’s Stay Matte Powder in Transparent. This powder is definitely worth all of the rave that it has received.  At only $4.99, this product is sent from the heavens and is one of my favorite pressed powders I’ve ever tried -including high end options!  For me, powder is a must when it comes to makeup unless I want my makeup to vanish in an hour after applying it.  I highly recommend this powder as my life wouldn’t be complete without it!

IMG_1995 (1)

Lastly, e.l.f. High Definition Powder is another great option for your mattifying needs.  This loose powder comes in three shades: corrective, sheer, and shimmer.  The best part?  This product is only $6.00! *angels singing* I thought I was buying sheer when I made this purchase, but bought shimmer instead.  However, this mistake turned out to be a good one, because I think that this product is great!  It doesn’t leave my makeup looking cake-y and let’s me have a little more of a glow on those days where I want my skin to have some life to it.  It still keeps my makeup in place and takes away the shine on my T-zone, but gives me just the slightest bit of shimmer.  This powder is the perfect option if you want something to eliminate the potential oil slick that can happen on your face, but still give you just a tad bit of controlled glow.

A Matte Lip That Isn’t Drying: NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream Review

Hey there, lovelies!

Matte lips are all the rage nowadays.  I love them, but the problem is that even the most high end matte products tend to make my lips look awful and chapped.  They always intensify any lip troubles I am having instead of making me look like Kylie Jenner.  On top of that, I usually find them uncomfortable to wear on an everyday basis.  HOWEVER, I am excited to announce that I’ve finally discovered a matte product that works for me: *drum roll* NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream!

NYX soft matte lip cream review NYX soft matte lip cream review

The NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream definitely deserves all of the rave that it has gotten -Why didn’t I listen to everyone sooner?  I regret each second of my life not spent with these beauties in it.  I now have four shades to tell you all about, so let’s get to the review!

Firstly, these Matte Lip Creams cost $5.99 a pop.  I’ve seen them at Target, Fred Meyer and Ulta.  If you want the widest range of shades to choose from, check out Ulta’s website, because they usually have double the shades which are available at other stores!

They go on extremely smoothly and evenly.  They smell nice and sweet, but not overwhelmingly strong. The applicator is your typical doe foot, but it’s the consistency of the product itself that really impresses me.  When you apply this cream, it gives your lips the most sharp, crisp, and clean edge!  Since these aren’t a liquid, I find them much easier to handle and get the perfect application.  I’m just too clumsy for liquid lipstick -one shake of the hand and your lips are screwed!  With these creams, I have much more control and my lips come out looking much nicer!

The finish is on the matte side, but I find that they don’t dry down as much as your typical liquid lipstick.  They still let your lips breath instead of feeling like they are encased in pavement.  Also, they last pretty well when eating and drinking, although they don’t have the lasting power of liquid lipsticks.

Let’s begin the swatches with my favorite of the bunch –Copenhagen!  Normally, I never go for deep or dark colors, so I was shocked at how much I loved this shade when I first put it on!  The first thing I noticed was just how evenly the color was applied.  Typically with these deep berry shades, I notice at least a bit of unevenness in color, but this goes on perfectly!  I am obsessed.

Next up, we have Antwerp, which is a coral/pink shade.  I think this color would be absolutely perfect for spring and summer, however it is a bit bright for my taste. I think the shade is gorgeous, but I’ll probably hold off on wearing it until the warmer months roll around again.

Milan is a beautiful pink shade.  I was expecting this one to be more on the nude side of things based off of the packaging, however it’s actually pretty bright.  I think that shade is gorgeous and it’s super pigmented, but again, I’ll probably reach for this more when things warm up a bit.

Last, but most definitely not least, is Istanbul.  This shade is a nude pink. It’s super natural and isn’t too light that it makes you look washed out.  I think this shade is perfect for everyday wear and I know I’ll be reaching for this one a lot!

A Daytime Glam Eye Look: Neutral Shimmer

Hey there, beauties!

Today, we’re going ham on the glam (teehee) with this shimmery daytime eye look that is simple and fierce.  Who doesn’t love a little winged eyeliner and glittery eyeshadow every once in a while?  I think that this look is very appropriate for fall since it is made up of some gorgeous bronze shades, so I love wearing it during this season when my eyes need a little pop.  This look is really easy to achieve and I hope that you enjoy it as much as I do!

Daytime Glam Eye Look

First, I used my NYX Jumbo Pencil in the shade Iced Mocha to prep my eyes.  I blended the edges slightly to smooth out any harsh lines.

Next, I patted Urban Decay’s Space Cowboy all over my lid with a damp brush.  This eyeshadow is the meaning of glitter.  Using a damp brush helps to intensify the pigmentation of the eyeshadow and reduce fallout.

Afterward, I used the shades Naked and Buck from the Naked Palette and a fluffy brush to blend the previous shades into the crease.

To deepen up the look a little more, I took the shades Whiskey and Password from the Naked Smoky palette and focused it on the crease and a bit of the outer V of my eye.

I then applied my L’oreal Liquid Liner and Ardell 117 Natural lashes along with using a mixture Urban Decay’s Thirteen and High from the Smoky Palette to highlight my brow bone and inner corners.

And that, ladies and gents, is the finished look.  I hope that you enjoyed this tutorial and that it was helpful to you!  I think that while this look is on the bolder side of things, it is still totally wearable for any kind of daytime event and isn’t overdone. Thanks for reading!

Another MAC Dupe: Amber Lights Eyeshadow

Hey there, lovelies!

Do you remember your very first MAC eyeshadow?  Mine was Amber Lights.  Since it was my first purchase from MAC, it holds a special place in my heart!  It is the most beautiful copper shade for fall and I still love it.  MAC’s eyeshadows are gorgeous and really fun to collect, but sadly, they are expensive which means that I don’t splurge on them often.  Finding affordable dupes for high end makeup makes me very happy, so I have decided to continue this little series and share another another perfect twin for an expensive product!  If you love this copper shade as much as I do, I hope you’ll enjoy finding a cheaper version!
 
 Amber Lights Dupe

Amber Lights Dupe

Top: MAC Amber Lights // Bottom: Milani Bella Copper


 Milani’s Eyeshadow in the shade Bella Copper is the perfect match for Amber lights.  It is slightly darker and just a tad more sparkly, but it is hardly noticeable when on the eyes. Milani’s dupe costs $4.49, while MAC’s eyeshadow comes in at $16. I like each of these eyeshadows equally and think they look almost identical.  Neither of them have much fallout, although I can tell that MAC’s is just a bit higher in quality.  They are each super pigmented and long-wearing.  They may seem like a terrifyingly orange shade in the picture above, but I promise you that they are actually very wearable when applied on the eyelid.  They really bring out blue eyes, but also look amazing on any color!  I can’t get over this shade for fall accompanied by some gorgeous winged eyeliner!  I’ve already created a look with Amber Lights if you’d like to see it in action. 😉

Top: MAC Amber Lights // Bottom: Milani Bella Copper

high end makeup dupe Amber Lights Dupe Amber Lights Dupe MAC Amber Lights Dupe

Overall, I think that both of these eyeshadows are great!  MAC’s is a tad higher in quality, but the difference between the two shades is not that noticeable -especially when on the eyes.  I actually prefer that Bella Copper has more sparkle to it than Amber Lights since I love shimmery shades.  If you want to save some money on MAC eyeshadows, I recommend this dupe from Milani!  I am really impressed with the formula and I think you will be too!  There is hardly any difference between these two products and if you go for the cheaper version, you can save $10.50!

I hope that you enjoyed this post and that it has been helpful to you!  Are there any products you have discovered dupes for?  Are there any products that you’d like to see dupe’d?  Thanks so much for reading!

Splurge vs. Steal | A MAC Lipstick Dupe

Hello there, beauties!

It’s common knowledge that MAC lipsticks are tubes of perfection sent from the heavens above.  However, their price is close to the height of heaven itself, so I don’t usually splurge on them.  Don’t get me wrong, I love MAC lipsticks as much as the next girl, but I just love a good deal more.

I get so excited when I discover dupes for high-end products since I am a lover of affordable, drugstore makeup (when it is of good quality, of course).  If you have the same dilemma, I’ll hopefully be able to help you out in that department.  I’ve recently discovered an almost-perfect drugstore match for MAC’s ‘Faux’ -one of my all time favorite lipsticks!

Mac Faux Lipstick Dupe

mac lipstick dupe

Top – Essence 05 Cool Nude \\ Bottom – MAC Faux

Essence’s Nude Long-Lasting Lipsticks are absolutely amazing and I wish I had every shade.  They are super affordable, coming in at just $2.99 a pop!  The shade 05 Cool nude is almost a perfect dupe for MAC’s Faux (which happens to cost $16!).  The formula is slightly less pigmented and just a tad bit darker, but when applied to the lips, you really can’t see any difference.  I may even prefer the dupe to the original!

The formula is creamy with a bit of shine to it.  It’s pigmented and lasts a good few hours.  It does rub off a little when eating or drinking as most satin to glossy-finished lipsticks tend to do, but that is to be expected. It’s hydrating and the shade is very flattering!  I think this color would look amazing on so many skin tones!  It is a cool-toned pink that is on the mauve side.  You guys know how much I love my mauve lipsticks!

Overall, both lipsticks are great.  The formulas are very similar -Essence’s is just a bit more glossy.  The colors are almost an exact match and the lasting power is pretty much the same.  MAC’s does last a little longer, but with a $13 difference in price, I’d definitely recommend Essence’s as the way to go!

Fall Favorites Collab with Valentina: The Eyeshadow Edition

Hey there, my beautiful people!

Fall… my favorite time of year.  The time where I get to put on beautiful autumn eyeshadows while dancing through the leaves with a pumpkin spice latte in hand.  I may not actually be providing you with a delicious PSL today, but I am however going to be showing the eyeshadows that I just can’t get enough of during this season of pumpkins and coziness.

This post is a collaboration with the beautiful Valentina Sofía (does she not have the prettiest name ever?), who will be sharing her top lipsticks for the season!  Her blog is amazing and you’ll definitely want to check it out!   Since our collab will inform you about the best products for eyes and lips, you’ll be set for fall! 😉 I hope that you enjoy!
My favorite fall eyeshadows My favorite fall eyeshadows

  1.  Kat Von D True Romance Eyeshadow Palette in Little Sinner – I am absolutely in love with these eyeshadows for fall.  First off, they are SO pigmented and high quality.  The colors are gorgeous.  Just one swipe of these eyeshadows on your lids and BAM…  They’ll be covered in gloriously pigmented fall spirit.  Who doesn’t want that?  While this palette is only available on Amazon and Ebay now, extremely close matches to these shades are available in Kat Von D’s Metal Crush Collection.

    Shades from top to bottom: Swan Song, Galore, Brave Awakening, and T-Rex

  2.  Nars Soft Touch Eyeshadow Pencil in Corcovado – I love this eyeshadow pencil since it works perfectly as a base.  It also gives me a really nice glow on it’s own, with just a slight bit of color.  It’s perfect for those days where I just want a little sum’n sum’n on my eyes.  It’s a very natural gold shade with a little shimmer to it.Mars Gold Eyeshadow StickNARS Eyeshadow stick SwatchIMG_7774
  3. Benefit Cosmetic’s Creaseless Cream Shadow in My Two Cents – Again, as I just mentioned, I love eyeshadows that also function as bases.  They make life so much easier (at least the eyelid-priming-portion of it, anyway).  This copper shade screams fall.  It never creases on me even though it is a cream.  It’s super pigmented and also has some shimmer to it.  I use this on it’s own or underneath other shadows to give them a warm, copper glow.  It’s a really great base for MAC’s Amber Lights since it enhances the copper tone even more.Benefit My Two Cents SwatchBenefit My Two Cents Cream EyeshadowbareMinerals My Two Cents
  4. bareMinerals Eyeshadow in True Gold – This eyeshadow is SO sparkly.  If blinding everyone around you with the beauty of your disco ball eyelids is not your thing, this eyeshadow won’t be for you… but if it is, you definitely need this in your life.  The warm gold shade is perfect for fall.  It looks stunning on every skin tone and I highly recommend it!  Everyone needs at least one shimmery gold shadow in their stash.  It is a staple in my beauty collection -especially during this time of year!bareMinerals true gold eyeshadow bareMinerals true gold eyeshadow
  5. bareMinerals Eyeshadow in Bare Skin – Sometimes, in this season of cozy sweaters, you just need a nice purple shade.  BareMinerals’ eyeshadow in Bare Skin is just that -it’s sparkly, it’s purple, it’s beautiful.  The color is not overpowering; It has just that slight tint of color to it that really makes your eyes pop, but is still very wearable for everyday use.  It has a beautiful shimmer to it as well.bareMinerals bare skin eyeshadow bareMinerals bare skin eyeshadow

Even though the bareMinerals eyeshadows do have some serious shimmer to them, they are not filled with those annoying chunks of glitter that fall all over your face as many sparkly eyeshadows do. There is nothing more annoying than glitter fallout! These stay in place, are extremely pigmented, and very long-wearing.

Beauty When You’re Tired

Hi there, fellow people of the internet!

The school year is officially back into the full swing of things… we all know what that means; Many, many exhausted days of sleep deprivation and eye bags.  Even though we may feel like zombies on the inside, the 21st century has provided us with the perfect tools to mask our dull, tired faces, tricking our fellow humans into thinking we always get our full 8 hours of sleep, because we have our lives together.

When I don’t get enough sleep, my face definitely shows it.  I get the typical red eyes, dark circles, and lifeless skin.  Since I am often feeling very zombie-like, I put these products to use almost everyday to brighten up my appearance.  I hope that they will be helpful to you as well!

IMG_7490

  1. Urban Decay Vitamin Infused Complexion Prep Spray – This spray is perfect when my skin needs a boost!  It feel so refreshing to apply in the morning and also helps to reduce any redness or irritation from any acne I may have.  I apply this before my moisturizer on those days where my skin needs a little extra help.
    IMG_7442
  2. Estee Lauder DayWear Lotion –  When I’m feeling really tired, my skin needs a nice lotion to bring some life back into it.  This cream is perfect for that job!  It smells like cucumber perfection and leaves my skin feeling very refreshed.  I highly recommend it!  IMG_7470
  3. Pixi Nude Combo Eye Pencil – On those days where I am running on 2 hours of sleep and 2 gallons of coffee, my eyes always show it.  To counteract the redness, I use my Pixi eyeliner along my waterline.  I typically use the matte side since it is so pigmented and brightens up my eyes like magic.  I also often use the shimmery side on my inner corners.IMG_7451
  4. Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in Champagne Pop – This highlighter is one of my all-time favorites.  It is the perfect peachy shade that goes well with every skin tone.  When my skin is dull, putting a highlighter on the high points of my face (my cheek bones, tip of my nose, and cupid’s bow) makes all the difference in brightening up my face.  I look 10 x more awake after applying highlighter.  I also use it often as an eyeshadow -it’s the perfect inner corner and brow bone highlight shade!IMG_7456 IMG_7438 (1)
  5. Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer – Y’all know how much I love this concealer.  I can’t go a day without using it!  It gives amazing coverage and never creases.  It dramatically brightens up my dark circles and makes me look alive again!  This product is definitely a must have and very worth the $29.

Thank you so much for reading!  I hope that this post has helped you solve all your zombie problems!  What products help you look awake and refreshed?
