Stila Countless Color Pigments

Happy fall, everyone!

Omg. I can’t believe I’ve been gone for two weeks. YIKES!!!  I feel so awful, but let’s face it, high school has been kicking my butt.

My birthday was on the tenth, and I got some beautiful gifts.

I introduce to you, STILA COUNTLESS COLOR PIGMENTS! Gather ’round, gather ’round!

Obviously, they’re gorgeous. They come with a lot of product in the pan, swirled around together to create a really pretty effect. To me, they look like little planets. Cuuuuute.

Stila is a high-end brand I haven’t experimented with very much, and I was excited to try these!

I got two colors, “Tie Dye” (the blue-purple-pink one) and “Lyric” (the orange-peach-pink one). For pigmentation, they both are pretty equal. The powder comes off silky and creamy, blending seamlessly and staying put for a long time. There’s no glitter or any shimmer, just a lightly satiny finish.

Here’s an up-close look at Tie Dye.

These colors are FREAKING BEAUTIFUL.

Swirled together, it’s like a peacock-color. (I don’t really know how else to describe it!) What I like about these pigments is that you can wear the colors separate, or blend them together. Unfortunately, I can’t really wear this to school. It’s a bit much for every day…I’ll save it for homecoming! ;}

Next is Lyric.

I’ve used this one a lot these past couple weeks. Some of you might be like “Whuuut. PINK on the eyes? Gurrrl that’s cray cray.”

But this looks really nice, I swear! It’s not harsh at all, it just gives your eyes a sweet, tender blush. When I’m in a hurry, I’ll put a little on my cheeks too!

That’s all I have for today, ladies. I’ll be back with a fall look really soon, with a couple little posts in between.

Have a great afternoon! ❤

The Mythical Mood Lipstick?

Hey guuuuurls.

Have any of you guys heard of “Mood Lipstick”? It’s been around for quite some time.

I was at Sally Beauty Supply one boring day, when I saw a tube of blue lipstick screaming at me from a box.”Pick me! Pick me, Isabella! I’m special!!!” it squealed.

I walked over to see an untouched box of green, yellow, and blue lipstick.The box said “Mood Lips: 3.80”, so I grabbed that pitiful blue lipstick. Truthfully, I’ve always been curious to try on a REAL blue lipstick, but my mother says there’s nothing tackier.

SO. So. First off, this isn’t really a magical “mood” lipstick. It’s just a molecular reaction…you know, sciency stuff.There was a color chart on the box, so I KNEW which color I was getting.

It came in a tube full of gold cursive lettering, and a bullet that didn’t screw all the way down. I hate it when the bullet is half-poking-up all the time…it makes me nervous I’ll take a chunk out of the product.

On my hand it was an interesting, blue-berry sort of color, kind of blue and kind of purple. On my lips it wasn’t much different, and stained my lips AND my hand! EDIT: **After a couple minutes though..it began to change from pink, to bright, berry-fuchsia. Ooooo!

The texture is smooth, glossy, and moisturizing, and the smell reminds of a lot of Maybelline’s Baby Lips, like Sweet-tarts, but I can’t say whether I love this lipstick or not.

Over all, it’s a great three buck lipstick, but I probably won’t repurchase. The funny blue color in the tube DOES get a lot of looks in public, though! Hehe.

Happy Easter, lovelies!
