Back in the day when my coins were scarce, they’re still scarce now but back then they were a lot more scarce,  NYX was one of my favorite makeup brands but somehow I got into the hype of trying other brands and I slowly forgot about them.

But that’s about to change……Read More »

Go Bold or Go Bare | Bare Minerals Swatch and Review

It’s been a hot minute since I actually purchased a product from Bare Minerals.

As a matter of fact, the only thing I usually purchase from them is their mineral powder foundation because my skin seems to love that stuff.

Best Red Lipsticks for Valentine 2018

5 Best Red Lipsticks for Valentine 2018.

Looking for that perfect shade of red lipstick that will impress your partner this Valentine’s? Well here’s the scoop on some of my favorite red lipsticks that you can try. They range from different price points so there’s something for everyone.

Red lipstick is no doubt a fashion statement all in itself and it might be a little intimidating at first but it is the one shade that can instantly elevate your sexy factor with little to no effort.

Whether you’re planning a romantic getaway with your beau or a fancy dinner date night, you better not be caught without some sexy red lips. It is an essential part of a perfect Valentine.

Besides, there is no celebrating Valentine without some red lips.

Without further ado, let’s get to it shall we?

Revlon Rich Girl Red

This lipstick was so moisturizing it felt almost like a balm to me. It has a very radiant finish as well which is an added bonus. This will easily create that glamorous look you are going for. This can be found at your local drugstore.

Milani Matte Kiss

This is a darker red and like the name, has a matte finish.  It does has a very smooth finish and I would say it’s more of a semi matte finish as it felt like it had a little bit of moisture as I glided it on. The wear time on this was 5 hours for me. Find it at your local drugstore.

NYX BLS15

Another drugstore brand, this lipstick is creamy with an easy application. Very pigmented and also feels very light on the lips. One application would be enough as it has a very high impact color.

Ruby Woo by MAC

Of course I couldn’t leave this one off the list. Even though I wish it was more moisturizing on the lips, it’s my all time favorite and that’s never gonna change anytime soon.

LipSense Flygirl

If you’re  thinking that your man is gonna wine and dine you this Valentine and don’t want to be bothered with your lipstick transferring or don’t want to be reapplying your lipstick every so often then this is definitely the lipstick for you. The only thing you would have to reapply is the lip gloss to keep that shine throughout the day. You can never go wrong with this as this is like the Ferrari of lipsticks when it comes to wear time.

With all these options make sure to dress to impress this Valentine’s.

Happy Kissing!

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.

Similar: Sweet Nectar by Milani. Buy Here

Similar: Purty Persimmon by Wet N Wild. 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.

My Statement Red Lip – Ruby Woo

Retro Matte Ruby Woo Lipstick
Retro Matte Ruby Woo Lipstick

Red lipsticks are classic, timeless and here to stay forever. Every woman should have a favorite red lipstick as part of her makeup collection. You will not know the power of a red lip until you try it. You either love it or you hate it, but at least give it a try first. Not only does it instantly exudes glamour but confidence as well, plus it will transform and elevate your overall look like no other lipstick can. Who doesn’t want a lipstick that screams style, sexy, power and confidence all in one swipe? Count me in, please.

My go to red lipstick that I simply cannot live without is Ruby Woo by MAC. It’s a retro matte lipstick that will last all day long with only one application. When it comes to matte lipsticks I always prefer a brand by MAC because I have had better experiences with them, plus I find that the quality is a lot better than other brands that I’ve used in the past.

With that said, I want to run you through my very simple steps for my red lip application. Firstly, like I’ve said before in previous blogs, always prep your lips before wearing lipstick, especially with a matte lipstick. See my tips for beautiful pucker lips. Next, you want to add a little lip balm or chap stick to add moisture. Take a red lip liner. I use Redd by MAC and outline your lips and then you can apply your red lipstick. I also want to point out that you should never put red lipstick on without a mirror or in the car. Clean up your mistakes with a concealer for a more refined and flawless look and you’ll be ready to step out.

What is your go to red lipstick? Share your pics and comments below. Puckers to you xoxo.
