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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Lovely Lilac Lips

I had fell in love with my first L’Oreal lip stain Incessant Russet that I set out to find another color and ended up with this amazing shade called Lilac Infinite. Shades of purple definitely pop on my complexion and that is why I thought this one would’ve been a winner – and it surely was. I love my Incessant Russet as well but I find that this Lilac Infinite is a lot less drying. I only re-applied the moisturizing top coat twice, whereas for the Incessant Russet, I had to re-apply it several times.

It also lasted all day that I had to scrub it off my lips with my lip scrub at the end of the night because just plain water or makeup remover didn’t get it done. This is definitely a long wear and is worth every penny. I cant wait to try out another of their amazing shades. Try it out and let me know what you think.

Puckers to you, xoxo.

I got this e.l.f. Lip Stain on impulse buy, which happens to me more than I would like, because I thought the name sounded really cute, so the swatch must be amazing and sure enough, like many times before, I was very disappointed with this product. Firstly, I would start with the pros and those are that it was affordable and the pointy pen-like tip made application very easy for a sleek, smudge free lip.

I hated everything else about this lip stain. It was very dry from the minute I opened it and applied it to my lips. I also tried to wet the tip a little bit so that the product would come out. Eventually, that helped out a little and was able to get some color on my lips. The color was not vibrant at on my lips. I needed the shade to be a little brighter because I thought it washed me out. Then, it only lasted for about an hour and a half before the color started disappearing. I will not be buying this product again. I still, however, do enjoy a few products from e.l.f. and my Lip Exfoliator is one of them.
