My love affair with lip crayons continues, and the latest to grab my attention is the Revlon Colorburst Lacquer Balms. I have a couple in my collection, and I have to say, I think I need to own all of them. Yes, I do. Here’s a look at Tease*, a burnt orange that I think could work on so many skin tones.
The snow does not seem to want to melt in my part of the world, but that hasn’t stopped me from wearing more Spring-like makeup. Here’s one of my go-to looks lately: black eyeliner paired with glossy lips.
Viva Glam 1 was a lipstick I loved for many years. ‘Distracted’ by other lipsticks, I forgot to buy it again when I finished the tube (yes, I have finished a lipstick!). Recently, I started to become enamored again with retro red lipsticks, and I came across this beauty at the MAC counter. I swatched it, and fell in love all over again.
I am not blessed with long, fluttery eyelashes so I love, love, love the look of falsies. Unfortunately, I haven’t had the best of luck at false lashes. Truth be told, I can’t for the life of me figure out how to apply them. But always up for a challenge, I decided to give the Esqido mink lashes a chance. They look so beautiful, and I thought, why the heck not?
Esqido lashes are made from “the softest and finest naturally shedded mink hairs.” Mink? I had no idea but I have to admit I love the look and feel of these. Check out the Esqido False Lashes I tested out:
How is it mid-February already? This long and never-ending Canadian winter is putting a serious crimp in my beauty blogging motivation. But I’m trying ladies. I’ve been trying to add some spice to my looks on a daily basis as a way to motivate myself, and here’s a few things that stood out to me:
- There’s nothing like a bright lipstick to brighten my day. As soon as I have a bright lipstick on, I feel more alive. In the last month, I’ve rediscovered old favourites like MAC’s Girl about Town and Viva Glam 1 (top left picture). I’ve worn these regularly, including on outings to the grocery store with the fam. After all, why not glam it up while buying broccoli?
- I am addicted to lipstick/lipbalm/stain crayons. From NARS Satin Lip Pencils to Clinique Chubby Sticks, to Revlon Laquer Balm Stains to Annabelle Twist-Ups, my collection of these hybrid pencils continues to expand like there’s no tomorrow. I think I might love pencils more than tubes of lipstick. I love the colours and formulation, and I love how portable and easy to use they are. Ground-breaking, I know, right? Read more
