Holiday Red Lipsticks on a Budget

Holiday Red Lipsticks on a Budget

Hello, everyone! I'm back at home and enjoying the pre-holiday craziness with my family. I thought it would be a good time to take a look at some amazing, affordable red lipsticks--from bright to sultry, shiny to matte. With holiday parties and family gatherings, you're bound to need more than one (or at least that's what I tell myself when I see how much lipstick I have)! http://youtu.be/Bak7sSkBscA   Products Mentioned: https://flic.kr/p/qw7dMK Covergirl Lip Perfection Pencil in Passion Rimmel Exaggerate Lip Liner in Red Diva Rimmel Lasting Finish Stay On Lip Contouring Pencil in Wine https://flic.kr/p/qeykph L'Oreal La Laque in I Laque You A Lot (shine) ELF Matte Lipcolor in Rich Red (matte) Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Love That Red (shine) Wet 'n Wild Megalast Lipstick in Sunset Siren…

Hi guys! You may have noticed my posts and videos slowing down a bit this past month, and that's due to my feeling ill for probably about half the month overall. But I've spent that time in bed planning out my posts for the rest of my time here in Virginia (only two weeks!?!), so hopefully I'll be back at it in full force this month! A lot of my favorites are combinations of things, so this looks like a lot of products, but once you group them up it's not too bad.   Garnier BB Cream Combo   I love the Garnier BB creams, and lately I've been loving the two different types (original and oily/combination) mixed together. I wrote a post about these last fall, so check that…

Hello! I noticed while I was moving out of my dorm room that I had quite a few makeup items that I had used up or that I wanted to toss out, so I thought it would be a good time to write my first empties post! It's finally time to say goodbye to my tube of Diorshow mascara. I had mixed feelings about this mascara, but I was lagging on actually throwing it out. I don't see myself repurchasing this, at least not for the near future, as I'm still going to be on a student's budget for another year. Next I have two eyeliner samples from Clinique. They look like they'd have a lot of product in them, but they don't. All you get is the little bit…

Hi, everyone! Since you guys seemed to like my fall lips post, I thought I'd do the same thing for blushes and nail colors, too! So look out tomorrow for the nail colors. Let's get to the blushes... The "goes with everything" neutral https://flic.kr/p/qbcvEM I wrote a post about this Milani blush because I love the color, texture, and packaging of it! A mauve blush is great for fall because they're usually not necessarily warm- or cool-toned, so you can reach for it any morning knowing it will look great. I also love this brownish blush, NYX in Cocoa. It gives the cheeks a little color but can look much more toned down than a bright color. A natural pink https://flic.kr/p/qb6bgj Some might argue that there's no room for pink…

Happy first day of June, everyone! May was a crazy month for me. I finished up my junior year of college, ended my job as an RA, moved out of my dorm (I've done this three times, but it seems like a huge feat each time), and got myself across the country to live at home for a summer internship. It was difficult to remember which products I was using the most this month because everything was changing so much, and I left a lot of my makeup behind for the summer. But, it didn't take long for me to pull a few favorites aside. Face Makeup Revlon Nearly Naked Pressed Powder - 010 Fair This has become my go-to setting powder each morning. It sets my makeup and lessens…
