Why Fall Lipsticks are the New Black

I’m always very excited for Fall, not only because I get to wear my cute sweaters and use Pumpkin Spice creamer in my coffee but to get inspiration from the amazing colors to redecorate my house, wear flannels and most of all to revamp my makeup routine.

I’ve compiled a list of 3 of my favorite fall lipsticks, this list can definitely change but for now I’m liking these, for the season. [Read more…]

Why Everyone is Catching Flannel Fever

What comes to mind when you hear the word flannel? To me, flannel is like my mac and cheese when it comes to clothing. It brings me warmth and comfort. I think about wearing my flannels on cool fall afternoons with a cup of coffee in one hand while watching the autumn leaves fall. Very dramatic but that is essentially how I feel when I think about my flannels. [Read more…]

Falling for Orange

Now that Fall is upon us, I’ve been gathering all my fall shades in my nail polishes and my lipsticks. I often find myself asking “What color lipstick should I wear?” For those of you who don’t know, I normally put an outfit together based on the lip color that I choose. Since we’re also around the corner from Halloween, I though that I could throw in some Fall/Halloween colors into my outfits without looking like a hot mess. 

I recently wore my Lady Danger lipstick by MAC. Buy Here.

Lady Danger has a reddish orange tone to it that gives you that sexy look while making it perfect for the Fall/Halloween theme with the orange tint that you get from it. You can easily pair this with neutral colors so that your outfit and accessories are not competing with each other.


I also paired it with a beautiful orange red/orange shade nail polish from e.l.f. cosmetics called Mango Madness. This shade of nail polish is a great alternative from the usual black nail polish (not that black nail polish isn’t sexy) that we use for Halloween but it doesn’t hurt to change it up a little with some vibrancy.

3 All Day Lipsticks that are Better than Most High End Brands

It can be a pretty scary thought when it comes to buying makeup and lipstick only to realize that it wasn’t what you expected to be. Many of us don’t have confidence in cheaper brands just because they usually turn out to be a waste of money. [Read more…]

Get Nude With Me – Wet n Wild Catsuit Nudist Peach Review

Hey guys,

This is another review under my Get Nude With Me series featuring Wet N Wild’s Megalast Catsuit liquid lipstick in the shade Nudist Peach. Also check out NYC Liquid Shine, Totally Toffee, Naturally Chic and Mixing and Matching Nudes.

There has been so much rave about this liquid lipstick that I had to find out for myself what kind of magic, if any, was stored in the tube.

Right off the bat, it has a very high end looking tube packaging with a wand applicator that allows you to easily glide on the lipstick. Wet N Wild claims this lipstick to have “Vivid Color”, “Ultra-Matte Finish” and “Comfortable Wear”.

When I first applied the lipstick, I have to say that the color and pigmentation was intense. I did have to wait for about 20 seconds for it to try before I applied my second coat. When the second coat was fully dried it did have a very dry and matte finish that did not budge. It is also kiss proof and transfer free. Way to go for a liquid lipstick that’s only 5 bucks!

As they claimed, the wear is very comfortable. It  doesn’t feel heavy on the lips at all. If I didn’t know any better I wouldn’t even have known that I was wearing lipstick. The formula that makes this lipstick super lightweight is definitely a winner.

I would say that the wear time is about average, 3 to 4 hours. My lips were even drier around that time and I noticed that dry patches were starting to show. It also doesn’t hold up very well after eating so I had to remove and apply a fresh coat and all was well with the world again.

Wet N Wild is definitely giving luxury brands a run for their money as the quality of the lipstick and of course the affordable price is something that can’t be beat.

The Cast Suit Mega last collection has a variety of colors and guess what? I’m just getting started!

Who else has tried the Catsuit collection? What color do you recommend I try? Give me some feedback in the comments and let PuckerUpBabe know.

Until next time XOXO.

 

 

Oh Sweet Nectar!

Hey guys,

By now most of you already know that I’m a frequent Milani lipstick user and I recently purchased the color Sweet Nectar from Milan’s Color Statement Collection to do a review, and I have to say that it’s popping! Get it on Amazon.

Milani describes it as being a bright orange but on my skin tone it’s more of a true orange, compared to my MAC’s Lady Danger which is like a coral orange with a matte finish. On lighter or fair skin tones it will probably look more like a bright orange.

This orange lipstick went on easily in one easy swipe. It’s a fresh and flirty color that will give all your other summer lipstick shades a run for their money. It’s creamy and very pigmented with a matte like finish. What I noticed throughout the day as my lips got dryer, since the lipstick is not very moisturizing, is that it settled on those dry areas which was kind of annoying. That happened after about 4 hours of wear, though, which to me is a decent time to remove and apply a fresh coat.

Guys, there are a ton of colors in this collection that you’ll be sure to find one that you like. So far I have the shade Naturally Chic, which I’ll do a review on later, and do plan on getting more shades. I always have a hard time choosing without buying everything so I settled for an orange shade just because it’s summer time and wanted a fresh new color to brighten my outfits. For six bucks a piece, I’m sure that you’ll be able to find an amazing color in the collection for yourself. You should check them out.

Calling All Velour Lovers

I finally got my hands, or should I say my lips, on one of Laura Mercier’s lipsticks from her Velour Lovers Collection in the shade Boudoir. This can range from a fuchsia to like a deep berry color depending on how many layers you put on. On my dark skin tone it definitely looked more fuchsia, like most of my other lipsticks…but hey I’ve always got room for more fuchsia.

I have to say that this lipstick is luxuriously creamy and just immaculately glides on your lips. It must be the nourishing mango butter used that also makes it feel more like a lip balm. Can I say lipstick heaven?

It’s also highly pigmented with a long lasting wear and a satin matte finish ( I never thought I could use those two words to describe a lipstick), we all know how matte finishes can be sometimes, like paper, but beauty is pain so I’m not complaining.

The 4 Best Things about Spring 2017

Now that Spring has sprung the fashion runway has graced us with some of the hottest lip shades of the season. It’s time to pack up your neutrals and unleash the attention grabbers from your collection. Here are some of the lip shades that have been causing a frenzy this season:

1.Orange

This is a fun and vibrant shade that is bold, bright and loud. It just screams ‘welcome spring’ and looking forward to summer. For darker skin tones, you want to stick with a red orange and lighter skin tones a more peachy orange. Get it on Amazon.

MAC Lady Danger


2. Fuchsia

This is definitely a shade that is more flirty and playful. The purplish-pink tones will compliment any skin tone as purple is known to be a universally flattering color. This is a shade that almost all women will already have in their lipstick collection so don’t be afraid to sport it. I, myself, have quite a few that fall under this category. Don’t judge me!

Get it on Amazon.

Milani Matte Orchid


3. Plum

Now, there are different shades to plum, the darker and mysterious shade and the lighter shades which I would say looks similar to a fuchsia but with less pink, if you know what I mean. It’s electrifying and would instantly take your look to a whole nother level.

Get it on Amazon.

Rimmel Show Off Lip Stain

4. Red

And last but definitely not least, the shade red. Well did you think we would leave this classic off the list? Shame on you! We all know that red is here to stay and it would be a crime if it was forgotten. Matte red seemed to be the dominant shade this season. It’s a very responsive shade that automatically commands attention. Every woman should possess a tube of red lipstick, even if not for everyday wear, for those special occasions where you wanna make a powerful statement. Get it on Amazon.

My 3 Favorite Drugstore Lipsticks by Milani

You guys may have noticed from some of my past posts that I literally live in Milani. Not only is the packaging expensive looking but the quality of the product is great for being a drugstore brand lipstick.

Milani is also made in the USA so I know that the ingredients are gonna be safe on my lips compared to other brands that are made in a foreign country. I tend to pair the Matte Orchid and the Matte Diva with a lot of bright yellows and greens in my wardrobe. They just make everything pop.

I reserve the Matte Confident for my mostly neutral colors like grey, white, tan and black, but it pairs well with brownish, copper colored clothing as well.
