A Red lip for you, and you, and you, and YOU!

One of my biggest makeup staples is a nice red lipstick. I just feel like it goes with almost anything (Plus it aids in my aspiration to be Taylor Swift). Plus it is perfect for any New Years look, need I say more?

Top Left- Rimmel Kate moss in 01
Top Right- Rimmel Kate Moss in 107
Middle- Revlon Colorburst in Standout
Maybelline Color Whisper in Berry Ready

So as you can see you have every red you can ever need in these 4. From a berry tones or more orangey reds I feel like these 4 cover all the bases for classic red lips. They are all super easy to apply and relatively stay on for a while.

So I hope this post helped you in any way or even gave you some inspiration for your new years look!

What Rocks? Lorac Pro 2

Aside from the super cheesy title I really think the new(ish?) Lorac Pro 2 Pallet really is a gem.

So I few weeks ago was my 18th birthday and one of my presents from my lovely parents was this beaut.
I can personally say that this pallet is absolutely gorgeous, packaging and all.
The colors in this pallet really adhere to my taste of neutral shades plus the few pops of color to spice things up every once in a while, you know when you're feeling bored of the same old same old.

The pigmentation on this puppy are top notch and with the eye primer you get in the pack you can go and run a 10k and your eye look with look perfect afterwards.

From left to right you have Buff, Light Brown, Cool Gray, Nectar, Plum, Navy, Charcoal, & rounding off the the top row Black.
For the bottom row from left to right you have Snow, Beige, Rose, Mocha, Chrome, Silver, Jade, and last but certainly not least Cocoa.

I think that this pallet would make an amazing birthday or christmas presents. So if you're looking for a nice present for anybody in your family or don't know what to ask for I suggest adding this gem to your wish/ shopping list.

Current Favorites

Hello gorgeous people, I recently took a lengthy internet break and I have finally returned! And I realized I have not not a monthly favorites in quite a while and seeing as it is too far into October to do an ''October faves" we'll just say current.

To start for left to right, lets start with my current shoe obsession & these Steve Madden buets are just that. I can say without a doubt that they are the most comfortable shoes I own. Plus them having a chic pattern means I can wear them everyday but with the sneaker/slip on look. Landing them #1 fave thing of the month/recent times.

Now I am a very picky person when it comes to perfumes. I want them to be sexy, classy, and smart all in one, which in turn has made my perfume journey a lengthy one. But I think I have struck gold with Taylor by my favorite Taylor Swift. I feel think has everything I look for in a perfume plus a little something extra. Now I would describe the sent to you personally but seeing as I am, pardon my french, shit a it, here is a scent description Taylor by taylor swift .

Now if have read my blog before you'll know that I have reviewed and loved the L'oreal color correcting facial primer, and to my dismay I have run out. and of course I made a trip out to Ulta for a new tube when I saw the Magic Lumi and was very intrigued. To my delight I find it to be really nice. As a person with dry, dull skin I am always looking for ways to inject some life and light into my face. Now as a primer, not my fave one ever but as far as luminizing it's top notch.

For me it has been a long few months of struggle with concealer, mostly because I got really bored of the one I was using and was on the hunt. But I think I found some good'uns among Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Dark Spot Corrector, mouth full and don't I know it, and Revlon ColorStay. I am pretty much in love with this combo at the minute. I got the Instant Age rewind in a shade lighter and I use before my foundation and then after foundation I dab lightly on the ColorStay, and I find that that does a beautiful job on my face.

The only thing that I really have been wearing the last few weeks on my eyes is the Bear Mineral Glimmer shadow in Summer. It is just the perfect goldeny color and on lazy days and on any day really I just like to brush it on and get going. It is just my new favorite gold shadow and I am completely obsessed. Enough said.

The new lip trend that has been circling everywhere is a mauvey brown color, thanks to the glamorous Miss Kylie Jenner. I will not lie to you I have been rocking that look a lot when I go out. But for school and lazy days I have been loving a little more natural easy version of it. That has been the Covergirl Smoochie in #luv u. Now I'm going to lie not my favorite name for a lipstick but I very much like the product. I just find it to be very flattering and easy to wear on a everyday basis. 

That is a rap on my current favorites and I promise I'm going to start posting a lot more now that I back. Hope you enjoyed this!

New Bag Obsession

It was like all my dreams came true when I found out that Cara Delevingne, the babest babe of them all, was doing a collection with Mulberry.  Cara's top notch style with the amazing high quality of Mulberry and I mean swoon.  

The bag ranges in all different sizes. colors, and fabrics. Going along with the rucksack trend it's a perfect and you can unclip the straps and wear it as a handbag if you choose to do so. If you are on the hunt for a new high end bag I would most definitely check out the Cara line with Mulberry. And if you do have if and are having trouble styling it here is how I would do it.

There is some inspo for you if you need it, and of course you can interchange the bag to which ever the bag is just my favorite.

Throw Back To Some Old Make-Up Faves

First things first( I'm the realist, I'm sorry I had to) I would like to apologize for being m.i.a but I'm back I promise.

Now lets talk make-up, now recently I have a rummage around my make-up stash and pulled some of my old faves. 

As for base I used M.A.C mineralized moisture, which I purchased a fair few bottles of last year and it was my everyday base. I really love this foundation it's very lightweight and smooth  and very blendable. Now there wasn't any reason I stopped using it, I just started trying out new foundations.

For my eyes I went back to an old holy grail M.A.C shadow in embark as well as a clinique quad. M.A.C shadows are really nice and they're M.A.C, need I say more? As for the quad I really can't remember the name I'm pretty sure it was limited collection like forever ago, but clinique probably does similar colors. But clinique do beautiful shadows, they blend like a dream and have rich colors I highly recommend them. And to apply and blend in everything I used M.A.C's brushes in 286, a tapered blending brush, and 252 a shader brush. I was in love with these brushes and thought I had lost them but rediscovered them in the back of my makeup shelves. These brushes are amazing, I mean they are M.A.C so of course they are top notch. They just blend everything in and make any look flawless and beautiful. 

So there you go a look into some of my old holy grail products that are still just as amazing. Like I said there never was any real reason I stopped using these products and I just moved on to try out some new stuff. All the products in this post I highly recommend. Hope you enjoyed it and I promise I'll get to posting a lot more.
