It’s Almost Cashmere Season

While many of us are still trying to enjoy the last few weeks of summer, I’m getting ready for fall. I’m excited for sweaters, flannels, leggings and of course lipstick. My new addition is Cashmere Silk Finish Lipstick by Wet n Wild.

This lipstick is definitely a more fall color I would say as it has more of a dark brown chocolate-y color that I don’t have in my current collection and that was all the reason I needed so I bought it.

As I applied it, off the bat it was very moisturizing, however I noticed that it had too much of a silky finish almost borderline metallic which wasn’t a problem really so I decided to just do one application of the lipstick because I wanted to keep that silk finish toned down. Β It did give me a more mature look which honestly I don’t mind because I’m so used to wearing very vibrant and fun lipsticks. Overall, I though it was a great lip shade that I will be using down the road as fall creeps in.

What I love about Wet n Wild’s lipstick is that they’re very affordable and have a very wide shade range where you can always find something that appeals to you. I know that this shade has probably been around for a while because it was kinda hard to find online and since I live in a small town I’m thinking that they just send all the older shades to my little neighborhood store that’s why I always end up with them since I do a lot of makeup impulse buys there.

You can also buy a 3 pack for $7.40 since holiday season is coming up and share it with your family friends.

3 Reasons a Great Nail Polish Can Save you Time and Money

I’m that girl who prefer to do her own nails instead of spending money at the nail salon but what really irritates me is when I spend all that time painting and perfecting my nails only to have them chip after like the first hour.

Read on if you’ve been there.

It’s coming to that point where I don’t have time to be doing over my nails and because I’m cost conscious, I’m not spending unnecessary money if I don’t have to because, well you know, that’s reserved my makeup.

So since I’ve been into a Butter London phase I decided to try their Nail Lacquer in the shade Cotton Buds which is a white nail polish. I wore this nail polish for like 10 days straight and it only had like minor chips after like day 7. Since my dishwasher is broken, it was the perfect time for me to test it out and I have to say that it lasted through scrubbing of those pots and pans. That would have never happened with my current nail polish collection. It is highly pigmented but I did apply a couple coats because I wanted to build layers to make it last longer. You probably only need one coat but I preferred two.

The only disadvantage to this nail polish I would say is the price retailing at $15.00.

Find it here on Amazon.

Normally, I wait for nail polishes to go on sale for like $1.00 but never spend more than $3.50, however, I find that I have a bunch of cheap nail polishes that chip easily so I decided to invest in one that will give me a little Β bit more chip free longevity. In the long run it made more sense for me economically and honestly there are a lot more health benefits to this nail polish.

“It promotes strong, healthy nails – Contains Hydrolyzed Silk, Horsetail Extract, Vitamins B, C, and E”

“butter LONDON does not add Formaldehyde, Formaldehyde Resin, DBP, Toluene, Camphor, Ethyl Tosylamide, Xylene, or TPHP to any of its nail product formulas.”

Why this nail polish saved me time and money?

  1. $15 sounds like a lot but it does last longer than the nail polishes that I currently have. Instead of buying 15 nail polishes for a dollar that lasts for 5 minutes on your nails.
  2. I would rather invest in a good nail polish that will last me longer and dry faster so that I can get on with my life.
  3. I agree that initially $15 is quite a lot to spend especially on a nail polish but it’s way cheaper in the long run than spending money to go to the nail shop every week. chemicals

Bobbi Brown has made the list!

Hey guys,

I’m pretty sure most of you have heard of Bobbi Brown’s makeup line. It was definitely on my list for a very very long time and I’ve finally gotten the chance to try it. This was actually what my makeup artist put on me for my wedding lip and I fell in love with it. That will be a different blog post however, whenever I receive my wedding pictures.

It’s called English Rose from their Art Stick Liquid Lip collection which looks like a pinkish nude on my complexion almost like my Naturally Chic Lipstick by Milani that you can get here. It’s definitely a more safer shade I would say, meaning that it’s something that you could wear in an office or professional environment. It does slightly give off a little mature feeling to it. Other than that, it’s definitely a shade that you can easily wear from day to night.

It comes in a squeezable tube that can conveniently fit in a small clutch as it’s not bulky at all, which I love.I also found it very easy to apply. You know that sometimes liquid lipsticks can just feel too heavy and sticky, and with this one I found that it was very comfortable to wear, smooth and lightweight. It didn’t emphasize any dry patches or lines on my lips and had a creamy semi-matte finish that lasted for about 6-8 hours. The few times that I’ve worn it, I’ve never had to reapply so that’s a plus for me.

I’ve tried quite a few liquid lipsticks and this is one that I would highly recommend. You can purchase a deluxe sample here for $14.99 if you’ve you’re a newbie to Bobbi Brown like me and would like to give it a try or you can choose a regular sized product for $47.47Β .

 

 

Butter London- Primrose Picnic Lip Crayon

Hey fellow bloggers and readers,

I have to admit that I’m glad to be back after taking off a month. If you’ve noticed that I’ve been MIA for a while that’s because I recently got married and was caught up in wedding planning and travelling. Now that that’s all over just been trying to get back to my lipstick hunting and weekly blogging.

Well you guys know that I love a good deal, especially if you’re someone like me who spends a lot on makeup. Butter London has been my secret obsession as of late. I’ve purchased their lip oil that I’m convinced was a God sent because it’s literally the best thing that has happened to my lips. And because I was very happy with that purchase, I had to go back and get other products, of course.

The good news is that Butter London is having a sale and that’s how I ended up buying more products. Click here to take advantage of that sale and reclaim your lipstick game! Since it’s a sale item, it may or may not be available but the lipstick version can be found on Amazon as well.

My most recent purchase is the Primrose Hill Picnic Lip Crayon as seen in the pic below:

It’s a very girly and flirty fuchsia-like shade on me. I really got a ton of compliments on this color as it is so vibrant and just lights up my entire face.

You can compare it to my first lip crayon purchase from Butter London in the shade Teddy Boy that is more of pinkish nude on my skin tone that I wear all the time now when I’m not trying to go too heavy on the makeup.
