Marc Jacobs Le Marc Liquid Lip Crayon

Marc Jacobs – Le Marc Liquid Lip Crayon

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.

10 Best Nude Lipsticks that Won’t Make you Look Like a Corpse

Like many, finding the right shade of nude lipstick is like finding a needle in a hay stack. Pretty much near impossible. At one point they even had us checking out or nipples for the right shade. That’s how serious this nude lipstick situation has become.

The cosmetics industry has come a long way when it comes to perfecting a nude shade that will compliment most skin tones. I’ve created a list of my favorite nude lipsticks that weren’t necessarily perfect but got pretty close.

10 Nude Lipsticks that won’t make you look like a Corpse!

We all know of those nude lipsticks that make us look like we just walked out the cemetery but the choices from this list did everything but that. Some may need a little bit more tweaking  than others with some lip pencils but these worked out great for me.

Huda Beauty Liquid Matte Lipstick Swatch

There are times when I get that feeling that I need to try something new, more often than I would like, but I have been itching lately to try Huda Beauty and so it began…

You’ve probably noticed that like mine, your Instagram feed is probably flooded with Huda Beauty makeup pictures from beauty gurus so yes, I’ve been thinking about Huda Beauty lately.

I finally realized that it was probably a sign from the gods for me to get the lipsticks and Huda Beauty walked into my life!

Fenty Beauty Beach Please Collection

Stay Beachy like Rihanna! Beach, Please! Collection Lip Gloss Swatch.

So I thought I was over the holo lipstick and lip gloss trend until Rihanna dropped her Beach, Please! collection!

This limited edition collection includes three killawatt foil highlighter duos, two island bling liquid eye shimmers and of course the one that got me all shimmered and bothered is her Summer Daze and Summer Nights lip gloss collection.

Marc Jacobs Enamored Hi-Shine Lip Gloss

Goopey or Nah? Marc Jacobs Enamored Hi-Shine Lip Gloss Review

Lip Glosses are always gonna be a struggle until they get the formula right.

We’ve all been traumatized by goopey, sticky lip glosses and some of us are still recovering from that.

With that said, I haven’t given up on searching for that lip gloss that will give me everything I need and then some…you know…the whole cherry on top.

My latest purchase is the Marc Jacobs Enamored Hi Shine Lip Gloss four piece travel-sized collection that I purchased at Sephora.

Smashbox Fully Nude Lip Trio

Get Nude With Me | Smashbox Fully Nude Lip Trio

I tried that looking at your nipple thing to find your perfect nude shade and that didn’t do it for me so I’m back to doing things the old fashioned way.

Trying on a million and one nude lipstick until I find a winner.

I wish I had that super power of knowing if a nude lipstick would work for me without trying them first because as of late, I’ve been through several nude lipsticks that I purchased that I had to kick to the curb.

Not really! I’m not wasting my money like that.

You best believe that I will do everything in my power to make that nude lipstick that’s ten shades lighter than me work before I resort to throwing it out.

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.

Sephora Give Me Some Lips Favorites - Spring 2018

Give Me Some Lip|Sephora Favorites Spring 2018

There were some great lip pieces in the Sephora Give Me Some Lip Spring 2018 Favorites but at the same time there were a few that I had to say ‘Girl Bye!’ to.

This box came with five mini lip products and one full size lipstick.

I love mini lip products just because of how convenient they are, especially when traveling. It just makes packing way more easy.
