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…

EDIT: I posted this a few days ago, but it posted to the date I began the draft...back in October! My apologies, and enjoy! Hi all, I wanted to show you one of my favorite looks so far for this season. I wore this to a holiday dinner a couple nights ago, and I was really hoping to have it up before Christmas in case you needed a simple holiday look as well, but alas... What's great about this look, though, is that you don't really need an "occasion" to use it because it's not over the top. I think a deep plum or berry lip would also look great with the gold eyes! Here's the final look: And here's how to do it: 1) Start off with your favorite…

Hi all, I didn't wear much makeup this past month, so I'll be talking mostly about non-cosmetic products this time. I have a bunch of new makeup I'm trying out this month, though, so next month's favorites will be back to the usual! As you can see from my new layout, I'm really excited for the holiday season this year ;) Tarte Blush Palette - I wore these blushes and bronzer every day that I wore makeup this month. I'm so glad I got this! I wrote a whole post about this blush palette, so I won't repeat here. ELF Lip Balm Tint - I was sick a lot this month, meaning I was often dehydrated and left with chapped lips. I love this lip balm because it works well and the…

Hi everyone, I saw this tag going around YouTube this past month, and since people like to ask for palettes for the holiday season or treat themselves to something nice, it seemed like the perfect time to share some of my favorite palettes! Before I start, I have a few things to clarify: I'll be focusing just on gift-sized (or priced) eyeshadow palettes, and as many different palettes as I can fit in this post while still answering honestly. Some of these palettes contain blushes or other products in them, but the primary focus is on the eyeshadows. But if you're looking for a great blush palette, check out my review of Tarte's Holiday Blush Palette. Now for the palettes! 1) Best Packaging: Urban Decay Ammo Palette https://flic.kr/p/qb7D5N https://flic.kr/p/pvF8Jf People…

Hi everyone, I'm getting back into reviews, and I'm so excited to share this blush palette with you! I just purchased this during the VIB 20% off sale, and I haven't used any other blushes or bronzers since. The palette retails for $42, and you get 4 blushes and a bronzer, as well as a cute cuff bracelet. I was so excited to see this palette when it came out because I love Tarte's Amazonian Clay blushes and I've been wanting to try more shades. They're super blendable, pigmented, and long-lasting. A look at the packaging: https://flic.kr/p/qb68us https://flic.kr/p/qsD1G4 I didn't think I would like the glittery packaging, but it's really more of a shiny woven fabric, so you don't have to worry about glitter falling off of it while you…
