National Lipstick Day

Lipstick has always been a staple in my makeup collection, however, I haven’t religiously wore it until recently. Something about a matte liquid long-lasting lipstick intrigues me. So, in honor of National Lipstick Day, I decided to list some of my favorite lipsticks here, followed by a gallery of some of my favorite colors I’ve swatched. I’d love to know what¬†brand you use for your go-to lip color, as well as types (satin, matte, gloss, etc.). Leave a comment below to tell me!

Note: Too Faced is offering 15% off their lipsticks in honor of National Lipstick Day, so take advantage!

Urban Decay Vice Lipstick First Impression

While making a purchase on Ulta.com, I needed an add-on item to get free shipping. That day, Urban Decay had just launched their Vice lipsticks (100 different shades in 6 different finishes), so I decided to pick a color and lip liner and add it to my bag to get that free shipping.

What a good decision that was! I’m in love with the color I got, as well as the finish. I am obsessed with matte finishes right now, so when I saw that the Vice lipsticks come in a comfort matte, I had to try it. The shade I purchased was Backtalk (a mauve-nude pink) in a comfort matte finish. The comfort matte finish feels like a regular, creamy lipstick, but looks 90% matte after it dries. I am really digging it. I will probably purchase a few other colors. Look at that packaging! Loving it. The Urban Decay 24/7 glide-on lip pencil in Rush (pictured) is super pigmented, so keep that in mind. Ulta’s site has a perfect couples section that matches a shade of the Vice lipstick to a lip liner,¬†so give that a whirl if you’re interested.

Have you tried Urban Decay’s new Vice lipstick? Let me know in the comments.

MOTD: Out-The-Door Look

Happy Friday! I hope you all had a great week. As for me, my body is fighting off some kind of stress cold, I think, so I haven’t done a full face of makeup since last weekend, but wanted to share this out-the-door look with you. I’m sure you’ve seen similar photos on my Instagram about it since I tend to do this makeup every day, but I wanted to share it with you in case you need a quick makeup look for the day. I’d say this look takes me about 15-20 minutes to do, maybe a little less. This look mainly consists of foundation, blush, eyeliner on the waterline, blush, highlighter and lipstick. No eyeshadow, mascara or liquid eyeliner. ūüôā

That’s the look! I apply my foundation with a beauty blender so I’m not using my hands, and then I apply my concealer with a brush and then go back with the beauty blender to make it look more natural. I tend to apply foundation and the blended concealer on my eyelids and brow bone to hide the redness. As you can see by the photo, no hardcore eye makeup!

Do you have an out-the-door look? Let me know in the comments.

Child Star Melted Matte Liquified Lipstick

I haven’t officially done a Child Star Melted Matte Liquified Lipstick post yet, so here it is! Love this color. It goes well with every outfit and keeps my lips hydrated. Also, I took a picture of my Warm Glow¬†Too Faced Candlelight Glow highlighter that I don’t leave the house without wearing. Makeup Tip: put a little highlighter on the tip of your nose and brush on your cupid’s bow to give them a little extra glow.¬†

Work Party Makeup

This week, I’ve been representing the magazine I work for a lot, and tonight is no exception. We have a work-related function after working hours, so I thought I’d keep it professional, yet fun for the event tonight. Here’s the look and check out the details below the photos.

My Latest Too Faced Haul

I know, I know. As¬†you can tell,¬†I’m a little obsessed with Too Faced products. But since I won’t be purchasing any more makeup until my next paycheck, I wanted to share my latest haul with you all (haha, that rhymed!).

Love Blush in Your Love is King

Candlelight Glow highlighting powder duo in Rose Glow

Melted Matte liquified matte lipstick in Child Star (I wore this in my professional glam look post yesterday)

Absolutely Flawless concealer

Hangover Rx primer sample

Bronzer sample

I tried the blush and highlighter this morning, but I don’t know how I feel about it yet. Love the colors in both, but I think I need a better blush brush and highlighter brush to get the complete look.

What are your favorite Too Faced products? I’d love to know.

Party Look Using (Mainly) Too Faced Products

On¬†Saturday, my husband and I drove down to Santa Cruz for a friend’s going away party. Since we would be seeing people we hadn’t seen since our wedding last October and since I’d be meeting new people, I thought I’d create a new party look. If you remember, my last haul from Sephora included the Too Faced Boudoir Eyes eyeshadow palette, so I decided to give that a go. Here are two photos of my look: one showing everything, and the other, a close up of my shimmery eye shadow. Read below the photos to see how I blended the eye look.
