Was there any life in this box? Boxycharm August 2018

August Boxycharm has arrived and for most people there was everything but a party happening in that box, but I thought differently. Let’s just say I choose to see the box as half full.

This month’s theme is Life of the Party!

The combined total of the beauty products in this month’s box ranged from $102 – $108 and is known to be one of the lowest priced boxes in Boxycharm’s history!Read More »

If you’re looking for a lip crayon that has the feel of a liquid lipstick then the Marc Jacobs Le Marc Liquid Lip Crayon might be the one for you.

What I love about lip crayons is that it doubles up as a lip liner and a lipstick in one which means there is a lot less hassle when it comes to application.

I picked up the three piece travel size at Sephora so I could get a decent sample of the shades and hopefully find one that will compliment my skin tone.

If you think that the lipsticks are amazing wait until you see the packaging! You’ll practically just want to throw all your money at them and snag their collection. The packaging features a very floral almost retro vibe with cat prints all over them.

If these aren’t the cutest things you’ve ever seen then I don’t know what is! If we aren’t cat lovers ourselves, we all know someone who adores cats so these will make the perfect gift for them.

You don’t even have to gift them. Just buy them for the heck of it just because they’re cute and will definitely make great conversation starters if you use them to spice up your vanity.

I mean who could resist the intricate details and the design of these lipsticks? They’re too cute that it would probably hurt to use them and ruin the cute cat face.

Since when is Powder Lipstick a Thing?

It never ceases to amaze me at how much the beauty industry has evolved and how innovative it has become but this one threw me for a loop!

Apparently powder lipstick is now a THING!

How does that even work? Will it feel like ground up chalk? How does it adhere to the lips? I can’t imagine it being even a tad bit moisturizing?! And will your vanity look like a powder bomb went off after applying it?

Even if a chemist would attempt to explain this technology and formulation to me I still wouldn’t be able to wrap my head around it. It just boggles my mind!

I found out that there a few brands that carry powder lipstick like Sephora, NARS and Younique and the reviews weren’t all that impressive.

Even though everyone’s experience will be different to some degree, as a lipstick enthusiats,  I think these powder lipsticks will be interesting to try.

Dose of Colors Lip It Up Satin Lipstick – SALE at Ulta

If you love a good makeup deal then you’ll be pleased to know that the Dose of Colors Lip It Up Satin Lipsticks are on sale for half the original price on Ulta.com.

These satin lipsticks from Dose of Colors Lip It Up Collection came out about a year ago but I never got them just because I wasn’t quite sold on the shape of the bullet and the fact that the lipstick doesn’t twist all the way down leaving some of it exposed.

That’s a mess about to happen especially with how clumsy I can be!

Kylie Jenner 21st Birthday Makeup Collection

Kylie Jenner 21st Birthday Makeup Collection

In case you didn’t know, Kylie Jenner’s Kylie Cosmetics launched a mega makeup collection for her 21st birthday that is apparently a limited collection and I want in on it.

Kylie’s makeup line has been on my radar for a while especially since I’ve tried her sister’s lipstick collection, KKW Beauty Creme lipsticks, by Kim Kardashian, and was pleasantly surprised at how well made and moisturizing they were so hopefully Kylie’s would be just as good or maybe even better.
