6 FALL LIPSTICK FAVES

Hello m’ dears!

We all know one of the biggest fall beauty trends is beautiful new lipstick colors. I’m a lipstick girl, myself, and so I thought I should show you some of MY favorite fall lipstick colors that I rock on the daily, from nudes to deep, dramatic colors! :}

Let’s start out with my all-time favorite nude since the beginning…Be Legendary Lipstick in “Chai” by Smashbox.

When I first tried this lipstick, I was in total, obvious love (I wore it EVERY day for my whole 7th grade year!). The formula is so buttery and stays put for ages, even when eating. Paired with a warm smokey eye or some liner, this color is perfection! I’ve talked about this lippie a few times before, so if you’re looking for a full review, click here!

Next I chose a Clinique Buttershine Lipstick in “Cranberry Cream”!

Rich. Gorgeous. Creamy. This is one of my FAVORITE reds!! It’s so pigmented, and looks great on almost everyone, especially all brown-eyed girls out there. No gross taste. No flaky lips. No gloss needed!

Another beautiful red is “Desire” by Honeybee Gardens, a brand I discovered at Market of Choice.

I wore this shade to homecoming! It’s kind of an warm, toasted auburn, and looks beautiful with brown, black, and purple clothing. The formula is smooth, but you can still feel the beeswax in it when you put it on. It’s thicker, with awesome color payoff, so one swipe is all you need to last all night.

Another deep shade is MAC’s “Rebel”.

This color is soo cool. One layer provides a stain. Thickened up to a certain intensity, it can look as bold and dark as you want! This was one of my first MAC purchases, and it’s one of my favorites out of my lipstick collection. I strongly suggest wearing a lip balm underneath; the satin finish isn’t the most hydrating. One thing I love about this lipstick is as it wears off, it leaves a pretty stain!

ANOTHER MAC lippie is a frost in “New York Apple”.

The color of autumn leaves…positively stunning! Who could resist a berry with gold shimmer in the fall? On the lips, it doesn’t look like unflattering chrome. The shimmer looks good in all the right places!

Last, BUT NOT LEAST, is Estee Lauder’s Pure Color Vivid Shine Lipstick in “Violet Electra”. What a mouthful.

This is a great party lipstick. The shimmer, color, and texture combined are amazing. I know it’s not JUST a fall lipstick, but I can see some people wearing this with their Halloween costume or to any holiday party. On darker skin tones, the color will contrast beautifully and really pop. If you’re looking for a full review, check this out!

Anyway, that’s all, folks! ;D

I’ll be back soon.

MAC Lipsticks GALORE!!

Howdy-do, my precious cupcakes.

I got a suggestion from a few lovely followers to do some reviews. Specifically, on things that I got from a recent haul here.

The two lovely followers were beautiful Ashley and Olive, who were requesting lipstick and eyeshadow reviews. (Be expecting a lot of reviews in your future!) ;}

Soo, I took my three brand-spankin’-new MAC lipsticks and decided to swatch and describe them in detail.

First off, is sexy and red-hot Lady Danger.

IMG_5621

First, the color is gorgeous. It’s a lovely orange-red with a matte finish, very classic and vivid. You can get rich color in one swipe, so pigmentation is no problem. Neither is staying power…this stuff sticks. (AND stains!!!)

Now, guys, this is a matte lipstick. If you have dryer lips, this will cling to those icky bits of dead skin. So, I suggest exfoliating and putting on a lip conditioner before you use this!

The next time you’re at a MAC counter, try this baby on. You won’t regret it!

Second is flashy Girl About Town.

IMG_5631

This, in comparison to “Lady Danger”, is a thousand times more buttery. You can also build up the color, depending on if you want a sheer or opaque look.

Also, I loooove the color; it’s a medium fuchsia with blue undertones. On an olive-toned girl, it just makes my skin glow!  A cream/gloss finish isn’t half-bad either. It just looks so yummy on the lips!

LAST, but not least, angelic Creme Cup!

IMG_5625

To be honest, this doesn’t swatch too well, but it looks amazing on the lips! It’s not your average boring nude, it’s a milky, sweet pink that won’t wash you out.

I can totally understand the hype on this one. If you want a “My Lips But Better”, or MLBB shade, try this one! It’s light and buildable, perfect for everyday or to pair with a smokey eye.

Staying power could be better, but I don’t mind reapplying this one. It’s so moisturizing and creamyyy. :}

Anyway, that’s all the lippies! I hope these reviews were helpful, and I apologize for keeping it brief.

If you have any questions, leave them in the comments and I’d be glad to get back to you!

PEACE!!!!! <333

Maybelline Eyestudio Master Duo Liquid Liner

Haiii Curly-Fries.

So, I’m not one for extreme eyeliner. SOMETIMES I’ll rock the vintage cat-eye, but my everyday look is completely devoid of any eyeliner at all!!.

I’ve been hearing some buzz about this particular liner, and I got quite curious!

db_maybelline_eyeliner

It’s got this teensy-tiny round applicator, that is THE COOLEST THING EVER.

It can create a flawless thick or thin line..and all you have to do is twist it on it’s side.IMG_5178

The formula itself is super rich and semi-glossy, and comes off easily at night! (No stained-black eyes! Yayness!)

BUT LET’S GET REAL: How good is the actual product? AMAYYYYUHZING. FAAAABULOUS. PERFECTOOO. The staying power is pretty good, packaging is sleek, and it’s easy to apply. I’ve been exploring a bunch of Maybelline products lately, and I think I am really getting into the brand.

Maybe creating a flawless cat-eye in one swipe is just $7.99 away…

But that’s for you to decide. PLUS, it takes some practice. One my first try, my hand was shaking everywhere!

I’ll catch ya on the flipside.. :3

If you have a question, you can put it in the comments! I’ll be happy to respond!

My Butter London Collection!

Hey you charming peoples!

I thought I might share my Butter London nail polish collection, because they have such beautiful colors and finishes.

Let’s go!!

1. La Moss

 la_moss

This is a creamy, vampy color that you can build up super easily. The finish is very, very glossy, too, and I love how this nail polish is dark without being gothic..it’s elegant and beautiful, named after Kate Moss herself!

2. Trout Pout butter_london_nail_lacquer_in_trout_pout_shop

This is a super-hot, super-bright coral color that looks great against most skin tones! It’s got a high-gloss finish, kind of like La Moss, and looks really juicy and peppy.

3. Kerfuffle

This is a nice, neutral pink. It’s not really high-gloss, it’s more creamy, soft, and sweet, like desserts! It reminds me of a cake-pop or a cupcake, and is a nice, basic pastel.

4. Fash Pack

fash_pack
This color makes my skin glow, and brings out all the golden undertones. Under different lightings it can look different, from a purple-brown, cool taupe, or a delicious, milk-chocolate shade. It’s truly gorgeous.

5. Marrow images

Marrow is a beautiful purple color, that looks amazing. It’s not really too dark, it’s just borderline “purple”, but that doesn’t mean it’s boring. It’s a very sexy shade.

6. Two-Finger Salute 

Two-Finger-Salute-Bottle-JPEG

I’m actually not too fond of this shade, but it was a gift. It’s a light, minty-teal color with gold glitter, which I don’t think looks that great on me. It doesn’t really go with anything I wear, either! There’s nothing wrong with the formula…just the color.

7. Queen Vic 

queen_vic

This is my newest Butter London shade, and one of my favorite ones! On the nail, it’s a juicy, creamy fuchsia that reminds me of berries or lip gloss. It’s so festive! Perfect for the holidays, or a party, or school dance, or fun night out, whatever!

So that’s my collection, guys! :} I hope you enjoyed this post.

My Five Favorite Nail Polishes!

ON THIS EARTH, I only have about five real nail polish “favorites”.

I usually let my nails run around naked for the rest of the time, because I’m too lazy to paint them.

When I do paint them, I usually get bored of the color after about a week, but these are nail polishes I really, super-duper love. We’re going from 1 to 5, 5 being my top favorite.

Hehe. Let’s starrrrrt.

#1: 

O.P.I Nail Polish in Strawberry Fields

Image

This color really brings out the golden undertones in my skin, and makes the shimmery, strawberry color pop even more. You only need about one coat, two is fabulous, and by then you have an opaque, juicy, strawberry shimmer that screams summer. It stays on FOREVER too, and looks really smooth on the nail.

#2: 

Essie Nail Polish in Where’s My Chauffeur?

Image

This color is very, very pretty. I love the Essie brand, because they have so much color selection! This color reminded me of cotton candy, or the beach. It was one of those colors that instantly picked up your spirits.

#3: 

Butter London Nail Polish in Trout Pout

butter_london_nail_lacquer_in_trout_pout_shop

This is a very bright, bubbly polish. It looks like a bubblegum pink with a hint of coral, that goes on extremely creamy. It reminds me of something you would wear for a day at the beach, or to the mall with your besties, or SOMEWHERE really fun! It looks very pretty on, and complements a lot of skin tones.

#2: 

Butter London Nail Polish in Fash Pack

Image

This is one of the MOST UNIQUE COLORS I HAVE EVER SEEN. Ever. I know it looks “blah” in the bottle, but on your nails, it can look like a variety of shades.

In different lighting, it can look like a purple-brown, a cool taupe, or a creamy milk-chocolate color, and it’s SUPER glossy. Plus, it goes with basically anything and everything you have to wear!

#1: 

Butter London Nail Polish in Kerfuffle

Image

I know what you’re thinking. “It’s washed-out pink. What makes it so special?”

Well, my friend, this color is very, very beautiful in it’s simplicity. Every girl needs that basic, creamy, ballet pink in their nail polish collection! It’s a true, timeless classic.
