COL-LAB Matte Addiction Liquid Lip ColoR

COL-LAB-Matte-Addiction-Liquid-Lip-Color-in-Lush-Lover-Blindfold-and-Non-Stop
Have you heard of the COL-LAB makeup line yet? Pretty fascinating. It’s eight beauty influencers heading up the direction in their Color Lab in New York City: @makeupbyamarie, @xsparkage, @whatwouldlizzydo, @ravenelyse, @saammage, @claireashleybeauty, @wesleybenjamincarter, @sudanidoll. I seem to always have a suggestion on how a product can be make just a little bit better, so this is great! I mean, who knows makeup better? It’s seems like an obvious partnership.

So let’s look at their Matte Addiction Liquid Lip Color ($8.79 @ collabmakeup.com, $9.99 @ sallybeauty.com). These only take one swipe to cover the lips, they dry down all the way to a 100% non-transferable finish and surprisingly, the two darker shades performed better than the lightest one! For some reason, I usually have the opposite happen.

One of the most important gifts you can give a young woman today is the gift of self-esteem. I think it’s much harder growing up a young woman these days as information about everything moves fast and I think it can be confusing.

About 3 years ago I became a mentor to an 8th grader who lives in a tough part of Los Angeles. She just started her junior year in high school and is starting to think about college. She comes from a low-income family and is a first-generation American. I totally lucked out with her as she has a really good head on her shoulders. She actually dreams about going to Harvard, and she probably could as she has the grades.

Rimmel Stay Satin Liquid Lip

Rimmel-Stay-Satin-Liquid-Lip-Colour
RIMMEL
just came with another version of their liquid lipsticks. The Stay Satin Liquid Lip ($5.49 @ rimmellondon.com, walgreens.com, target.com) comes in 14 shades and dries down to a satin finish, or what I call, a semi-transferable finish. So these are more comfortable to wear but the down side is that they don’t have the longevity that a more matte version would. Comfort? Long-wearing? I usually take comfort over long-wearing unless there is some odd situation for why I need to have my lippie really stay put for a long time, whether it's uncomfortable or not which doesn't happen often.

I got about 7 hours of wear out of one and surprisingly, the darker two wore better than the lighter ones. Take A Chill Pill balled up on my lips L The wear of these really reminded me of ColourPop’s Ultra Satin Lip.

Milk Makeup Long Wear Gel Eyeliner

Milk-Makeup-and-creating-a-smokey-eye
A liner is a liner is a liner, right? So not! If you love makeup like I do then you already know this. Overall liner have sure have gotten better and I feel we are at a peak right now. I mean take these ones, they are a gel (remember when a gel liner only came in a pot?), they’re waterproof (most are still only water resistant), and these dry down to a totally unmovable finish for hours (remember when liner barely lasted the evening out?).

And those three traits and more are what you get with MILK MAKEUP Long Wear Gel Eyeliner ($22 @ milkmakeup.com, sephora.com).

Using-Dove-Dermacar-Scalp-in-the-shower
Fall brings an extra set of new beauty concerns each year, and for me, it’s a dry scalp. The dry and cooler weather can really do a number on my skin and I’ve decided not to be embarrassed about it anymore. It happens and I’m just thankful I’ve got something to remedy it! I like to add a little extra TLC to my hair routine with the Dove Dermacare line. Choose from:

Dove Dermacare Scalp Dryness & Itch Relief Anti-Dandruff Shampoo, Dove Dermacare Scalp Clean & Fresh Anti-Dandruff 2-in-1 Shampoo & Conditioner, Dove Dermacare Scalp Soothing Moisture Anti-Dandruff Shampoo, and Dove Dermacare Scalp Invigorating Mint Anti-Dandruff 2-in-1 Shampoo & Conditioner.

Introducing the Blazon Brush

Blazon-Brush-on-the-shelf
How often do you think about your hair brush? Probably only when you go to use it and say to yourself over-and-over that you need to replace it, right? How about a gourmet brush? Introducing the BLAZON Diamond Bezel Hairbrush ($59 @ blazonbrush.com). It comes in limited-edition colors (they've put out 4 different ones) and they seem to sell out quickly as this Vintage Gold one shown here is already gone. The next color will be debuted on November 18th. Can you guess what it will be? I’m going to guess either black or dark green.

Stila Cosmetics Vivid & Vibrant Collection

Using-Stila-Cosmetics-Vivid-&-Vibrant-Makeup-Collection-final-look
This Vivid & Vibrant Collection from STILA COSMETICS is a tricky one. A lot of the items are filled with shimmer and glitter so I had to be choosy when it came to what I used for this look and take my time b/c I would have been easy to go overboard!

Click the link below the bottom pic to see what I used to get just the right amount of shimmery glow for this look!

Candy Club Is My Club for Candy

Disclosure: Sponsored post. All opinions are my own.

Checking-out-candy-from-Candy-Club-main
If there’s one thing I love almost as much as makeup, its candy! And what better way to receive it each month via subscription. Personally, I love anything via subscription. The products sent are usually a really great value and the fee is reasonable. That’s why when I heard about Candy Club, it was an easy, “Yes, I want to try it!”

This is how Candy Club works -

  1. Pick Your Plan
  2. Choose Your Candy Preferences
  3. Wait for the Shipment

Charlotte Tilbury Magic Away Liquid Concealer

Charlotte-Tilbury-Magic-Away-Liquid-Concealer
Since my skin is quite dry under my eyes, I’m always on the hunt for a really good concealer that’s not going to sit in my fine lines. When I heard about CHARLOTTE TILBURY Magic Away Liquid Concealer ($32 @ charlottetilbury.com, net-a-porter.com, nordstrom.com), my ears perked up! She just came out with a new complexion collection and this one comes in 16 shades. Nice!

Ms. Tilbury claims she’s been working on creating a Holy Grail concealer for years and this is her throwing her hat in the ring. Key ingredients inside hers include Persian Silk Tree Extract, which give hers a unique elastic-stretch that’s allows it to hug curves, Palmitoyl Glycine is for anti-aging and the extract of wild indigo, an under eye brightener.

The applicator sponge is also unique. It’s called the Magic Miracle Precision beauty blender (arn’t those last two words trademarked?) and was designed to rollover and hug your skin. And the formula is housed in a click-pen, which I’m not a huge fan of since sometimes I’ve clicked and clicked and the product has never come out! But on the other side, it keeps the liquid bacteria-free. Love that.

So how did this one do? Click below to find out!
