NATIONAL LIPSTICK DAY | SOME OF MY FAVORITES


Today is National Lipstick Day and if you know me at all, you know I love lipstick. I tend to reach for more darker colors but I thought today would be a good day to share some of my favorite lipstick shades currently.

I tend to stick to more darker colors, but with my purple / pink / bright hair, I find it a little harder to work with my normal dark lipsticks- so you will see a few dark colors and a few nude colors in my top faves right now.



(from l to r)
TOO FACED MELTED VILLAIN:
I got this as part of a swap from a makeup group I'm in and it's a PERFECT shade for me. I love how dark it is- but also can wear to much lighter color. The only downfall to these melted lipsticks is they take a while to dry so at first they don't have such a long lasting power.


REVLON VA VA VIOLET:
This is a long time favorite- though it wasn't getting much love. I grabbed this a while back after seeing a Facebook friend wear it. It's a super dark color but again, it's pretty glossy. I prefer mattes over anything and because of it being so glossy, it doesn't stay well. I always make sure to carry this in my bag if I wear it out because I know I'm going to need to touch it up.


NYX SOFT MATTE LIP CREME IN PRAGUE:
Okay- this is a pinkish color and it's totally not a color I would normally grab. HOWEVER- I tried it on after having someone tell me I needed it and I got SO many compliments. It's more on the red side so it works- but it does make my teeth look more yellow than they are (Forever cursed because I drink tea). I love how these dry matte and have a great staying power, though I do need to reapply if I eat and drink a lot.


COLOURPOP TOOTSI:
If you get any of these- get this one. It's a matte formula and it's perfect. It's a color very similar to Cashmere from Lime Crime and it's only 5$!.I love wearing this if I want a more bold nude color on my lips and it is just a perfect. I love it!


TOO FACED MELTED CHIHUAHUA:
Let's first talk about the name- melted chihauhau. I DIE! Whenever I was thinking of names for the lipstick I created- my sister said I should pick something unique and she said chihuahua and I thought it was the craziest thing ever- then I saw this. This is a my lips but better color and I love wearing this on days I don't feel like having a bold lip- but still need something. Like I said before- it takes a while to dry so I do end up reapplying these a lot.



What are you favorite lipsticks? Let me know below!

CURRENT WISH LIST (+ update: I'M ALIVE)

Oh hey there, it's just me. I'm not sure if you remember me since I totally have left this space empty for the last few months. I want to start blogging again (it probably won't be three times a week or anything) but I wasn't sure if I should address the long silence on this blog or if I should just pretend like it never happened.

I know, I know. It's totally annoying to see the "life update: I'm back" posts and then the blogger falls off the face of the earth again. I'm not promising I will write every week but I don't want to keep this space empty anymore. I have put my full focus on my YouTube channel and that is why this space has been neglected. I don't have a lot of ideas for content on here and most of my ideas seem better to do in a video format. It's just easier for me to film a video most of the time. I'd eventually like to keep this place mostly a personal place where I can talk about the updates in my life but for now, I wanted to talk about some things I've been dying to try- but just can't get myself to spend the money on

ERIN CONDREN LIFE PLANNER:
- After watching my friend Andrea talk about her etsy store and her addication to planners- I've been dying to get my hands on one of the Erin Condren planners. The only thing is there are 50$ and that just seems like a lot for my budget. Maybe I can splurge around my birthday. For now, I'm looking at grabbing a MAMBI planner for my every day life planning and I have a sugar paper planner for my school work.

BECCA X JACLYN HILL CHAMPAGNE POP:
- I love Jaclyn Hill and when I saw her talking about this highligh- I declared I needed it. It's so beautiful and I'm pretty sure that people in space would be able to see me while wearing this. but 40$ for a highlight (that I don't really NEED) is a bit steep... but dang. It's gorgeous.


TOO FACED SUGAR POP EYE COLLECTION:
- Let's be real, I don't even wear color that much but something about this calls my NAME. The colors look so bold and beautiful and I can't get enough. Blackberry and Rock Candy are two of my favorite shades and I just really want it... even though I have enough eye shadow palettes to last a lifetime.

ABH ARTIST PALETTE:
- I mostly want this because Dusty Rose. I remember when they first had pictures of this palette out and everyone was so in love with Dusty Rose. It looks like such a beautiful color.

ABH WORLD TRAVELER:
- The only color that I know I don't love in this palette is the bright blue, just because that's a little too bold for me. This palette is another great on from ABH.
