Been on a "lip" kick lately. I've been buying a lot lip products for some reason? If you know me, my lipstick stash is probably 90% of MAC products. I started out with that brand when I first got into makeup so I've collected a hefty amount of EVERYTHING from MAC. So I want to venture out into different brands, both high end & drugstore. I wanted a YSL lipstick for the longest & I finally bought one. These babies are $34 each. OMG! I swear it's worth it though. Their lipsticks are highly pigmented, moisturizing & creamy. I used it to work the other day & got tons of compliments on it. I actually sold a few of YSL lipsticks that day =)
I'll say this again...pictures don't do these lipsticks justice. The colors in the pictures are not true to color. Kat Von D's Adora lipstick has a metallic finish to it which makes the color even more gorgeous than it really is.
I've also been a hunt on a holy grail mascara. I currently use Maybelline's Falsies mascara but I'm getting tired of it. It's an 'okay' mascara but I want something along the lines of BAD ASS. My lashes are fairly difficult to please. I need waterproof formula to hold my curl. I just want a mascara that'll give me crazy amount of volume & length. Any suggestions?
I've been wanting Benefit's They're Real! mascara for the longest. I sell these bad boys like hot cakes at work. It's not a waterproof formula so I was kind of skeptical to buy it but when I tried it in store, I fell in love. I brought it home & it was a different story. It clumped like crazy & it weighed my lashes down after applying 2 coats :( I'm so jealous of every single girl that had this mascara deliver nothing but spectacular results for them. This mascara would have been perfect for me if only it worked out.
I received over 10 mascara's as gratis & I gave them all away because they weren't waterproof. I received some of the best mascaras sold at Sephora from brands like Makeup Forever, Fresh, Benefit, Dior, etc. The latest one that I just got for gratis is the YSL Shocking mascara. Gonna give it a try & see what happens. It's not waterproof *gasps*
My co-worker rocks purple lips to work & she looks damn near amazing! So I thought I would give it a try. Purple lips is something out of the ordinary for me but I feel that's what makeup is all about. Dare to wear something you're not comfortable with. You'll never know, it might just suit you. So instead of rocking a red lip on Christmas Eve I'll be doing things different & rocking purple. I will post pictures of course =)
And it's back to my old roots of mascara for the time being. Cover Girl's lash blast has been fairly nice to me over the years so I thought it was time to re-visit =)
