While visting my local ULTA store, I discovered this amazing new lip product by NYX called Soft Matte Lip Cream. I was pretty curious about what matte lips might look like, so I bought it and tried it on as soon as I got home. Turns out shine free lips look pretty good! I actually really like it. The texture is just like normal gloss, but it has absolutely no shine. It looks like the color you have on is completely natural! Although, make sure you exfoliate or add lip balm before and after you use it; if you don’t it makes your lips look dry. It also dries them out a little after use too. Anyway, it’s also really inexpesive(around $5.00), so you can afford to be curious and try it!
Until next time…
Since spring break is only 2 days away, I thought I’d give a list of what I think is essential for having a great vacation!
1)The Clarisonic is great for getting all of the salt water off your face after a long day at the beach. 2) Cute floral headbands add a pop of spring color to any day! 3) The romper is perfect for a day at the beach because it can be a cover up, or with a necklace, become something you can wear to lunch! 4) These colorful bracelets are still great even if they get wet! 5) A backpack is a must for any vacation. It will hold anything, and keep it dry and secure. 6) This fun pink lip gloss is great for touching up when you can’t get to your makeup bag. One coat of lip color makes it look like you’re wearing makeup!7) Sunglasses are a must for anytime of year, but are especially important when you are out in the sun for a long time.(check out my post”Sunglasses” for more info.) 8) The iPod is perfect for relaxing on the beach or the trip to the beach.9) These neon jelly wedges work as beach shoes and a cute pair of sandals. 10) Last but certainly not least is sunscreen! It may not seem like much now, but after a couple hours on the beach or the outlets, you’ll be thankful you brought it! I hope all my readers have a great spring break!
I thought that it might be fun to show you some of my favorite cosmetic items that I use or want. So here we go…
My favorite lip gloss by far is by Bare Essentuals. It gives a pop of shiny color without the heavy look of lipstick. This one is somewhat out dated, but I think they still make it, along with other types. The Pretty Amazing kind is more updated and is really awesome too.
As far as really defined color goes I love the Chubby Stick by Clinique! You can put it on so it looks like a light layer of chap stick, or make it look like a really heavy application of lipstick. It comes in a variety of shades, the one in the picture is Mega Melon. I also like Super Strawberry.
For eye color I use Clinique’s Lid Smoothie. It lasts a really long time, but comes off easily with a wet cloth. I really like the purple shade because it matches my eye color, but it comes in lots of other colors.
For perfume my favorite is definitely Harajuku Lovers. They have all sorts of scents and girls. Personally, I think they are really cute! I want all of them but, the one I own right now is Love.
The only type of foundation I will ever use is Bare Minerals. If you remember, my second post was about this! I love it because it looks natural unless you use a lot of it, and actually evens out your skin tone after you use it for a while.
So… for all of you snoopy people, that is pretty much a view of the cosmetic section of my bathroom!
