Yesterday Was National Lipstick Day: What Are Your Favorite Colors?

Unbeknownst to me, yesterday was National Lipstick Day.  I know, how could I NOT have known this, you ask?  I agree and am still kicking myself.  It's now been marked in my calendar for all future Lipstick Days to come.

Lipstick is my favorite beauty product, by far.  I love it so much because it can totally change your entire appearance, with one little coat.  It's the one beauty product you can wear, with nothing else on your face, that can make you look glamorous, put-together and chic.  And, depending your mood, you can choose a color to match how you're feeling.

If you're feeling sexy, there is nothing better than wearing RED.  My all-time favorite red is L'Oreal Paris Colour Riche Lipcolour in British Red.

If you're feeling bold, there is nothing better than wearing a BERRY.  My favorite berry lipstick is BH Cosmetics Creme Luxe Lipstick in Berry Bite.

Summer makes me feel happy and my go to color is ORANGE.  My all-time favorite orange lipstick is Avon Ultra Color Rich Lipstick in Poppy Love.

If you're feeling playful, you can't go wrong with a FUCHSIA.  My favorite fuchsia lipstick is Joe Fresh Matte Lipstick in Fuchsia.

Try these colors out!  You will fall in love with them as I have, I just know it.  What is your favorite lip color?  What should I be wearing these days?

Best Beauty Products Under $5

Beauty Under $5

I'm a sucker for a good deal.  Whether it be shoes, purses or my favorite lipstick, I love knowing that I paid next to nothing for something I absolutely adore.

Here are some of my favorite beauty products which cost less than $5!

BH Cosmetics 6 Color Concealer and Corrector Palette - It's amazing because it's compact, easy to use and works really well.  Plus the price is a HUGE bonus.

Forever21 Mango Face Mask - I love one-use masks!  I tend to get bored easily and love to try a new one each time.  This is a great one because it smells fabulous and actually makes your skin feel super smooth.

NYX Powder Blush - Sigh, I love NYX.  All their products are amazing but this type of blush is the best.  It goes on so well and lasts all day.

Rimmel Stay Matte Powder - I am typically a loose powder gal but love this powder when I travel.  One of these bad boys can last me a couple of months and the powder also absorbs any oil on your skin which is GREAT when traveling to a hot climate.

ELF Studio Moisturizing Lipstick - You can never go wrong with an ELF product but their studio line is definitely the best.  Plus these lipsticks are about $3.

Noxzema Classic Cream - I recently went back to using this product and still love it.  It makes my skin tingle and really cleans out all my pores.

Sinful Colors Professional Nail Polish - This brand has a great selection of colors and dries really well.

NYC Smooth Skin Bronzing Powder - I change bronzers like I change my hair color.  I have used so many inexpensive (and expensive) brands but always seem to come back to this one.  Easy to use and the color blends really well.

These are a few of my top items.  What are your favorite, inexpensive, must-haves?

Beauty Bargains: Makeup Sales I Have to Share

I've been a naughty girl by giving my credit card a workout this past weekend.

Over the past few days, I've made a couple purchases and just HAD to share the great deals in case you're on the hunt for a few products yourself.

First, e.l.f. Cosmetics is having a MASSIVE blowout right now.   A lot of their beauty products are on sale for $0.49, $1.19 and $1.49.  In other words, it's a great time to stock up on a few items that you might have been wanting to try.  Here's a link to the sale items http://www.eyeslipsface.com/makeup/sale

Second, I made a purchase from BH Cosmetics and was able to capitalize on a Buy One Get One Free offer.  That was has expired BUT they've just posted a Free Shipping and Free Brush Set which is equally great.  Here's the link http://www.bhcosmetics.com/big-sale

I ordered a couple Mark and Avon items as well and Avon is having a big blowout of all their makeup, skincare, fragrances and hair products.  Seriously, have a look at all the great deals by clicking this link https://www.avon.com/category/outlet/makeup

Can't wait to share my big haul post with you all.  Have you seen any sales worth noting?  Anything I should pick up?

Lips, Cheeks, and Eyes, Oh My: Mad About Pink

Mad About Pink

I am mad about pink right now!  Since having Benjamin, my entire makeup routine has had to change as I have virtually no time to make myself "up".  Instead, I've been trying to find ways to keep the routine quick, simple and look polished without having to touch up during the day.  My go-to colors?? Pink!  Not only do they look beautifully subtle but they look great even if you're tanned.

Some of my favorite products are:

Dior Glowing Color Powder Blush
Revlon ColorBurst Lipstick in Candy Pink
Bobbi Brown Pink Quartz Shimmer Brick Compact (amazing!)
Stila Custom Color Blush (color changing blush that creates your perfect color pink)
MAC Cremesheen
NARS Blush in Desire
Too Faced Full Bloom Ultra Flush Blush
Maybelline's The Blushed Nudes Palette

What are your go-to colors to wear during the day?

Clinique's Cult Favorite: Black Honey

Sometimes a cosmetic line creates a product that is so popular, and has been around for so long, that it makes "cult" status.  That's exactly what happened to the color Black Honey by Clinique.

For those that have never heard of it, first run out and by the Almost Lipstick in Black Honey as soon as you can.  Black Honey is one of those colors that looks FAB on absolutely everyone that wears it.  It's also sheer enough to pair with any type of eye makeup and also makes you feel very old school glamorous without trying too hard.

In addition to me repurchasing this amazing shade, I also got the matching shadow palette called A Black Honey Affair, which features the majority of the colors that match the lip shade perfectly.

Check out these colors!  From left to right, the palette contains Sugar Cane, Hazy, Black Honey, Lucky Penny, Untitled Color, Purple Pumps, Lavender Out Loud and Graphite.

The palette is gorgeous but the lip shade is out of this world.  Super classy, nice and light but colored enough to feel like you have something on your lips.  I love it!

What are your thoughts on the cult favorite, Black Honey?  Have you tried the color before?
