Almay Lip Vibes lipstick collection | cream and matte review

almay lip vibes cream and matte lipstick collection

All lipstick c/o Almay. Almay Lip Vibes lipstick collection / nail polish / black tee / blue scarf / sunglasses /

Have you seen Almay’s new “Lip Vibes” collection? It’s fabulous! The new Lip Vibes collection by Almay includes cream lipstick, matte lipstick, and two lipstick toppers. In addition, each lipstick has a fun name which could be associated with your current mood, vibe, or situation. Plus, each lipstick has vitamin E, vitamin C, and shea butter. Love this!

I’m having so much with the Almay Lip Vibes lipstick collection. The packaging has a fun, beachy print which evokes a playful vibe. The names are also fun and can be associated with your current vibe. My favorite color is “Girl Boss,” of course, I would like to think I’m a girl boss, even if I’m not. haha

There are twenty-four fabulous shades in Almay’s Lip Vibes lipstick collection. The Almay Lip Vibes matte lipstick collection in cludes the colors, Worry Less, Go Wild, Dance Now, Be Fearless, Smile, Treat Yourself, Get Crazy, Insta Queen, Hit Snooze, and Never Regret. The Almay Lip Vibes cream lipstick collection includes Live Happy, Love Yourself, Call Out, Sleep Later, Skip the Gym, Be Strong, Believe, Girl Boss (my favorite!!), Love Big, Dream, Eat Cake, and Rise Up. Lastly, there are two lipstick toppers which offer a fun sheer variation to another color. The Almay Lip Vibes toppers are Shake it Up and Mix it Up.

Four of the colors from the Almay Lip Vibes lipstick collection really speak to me, so I took a few pictures showing what they look like. I’m not a professional beauty blogger, so please bear with my amateur lipstick swatches.

Almay Lip Vibes Dance matte lipstick review

Almay Lip Vibes Dance lipstick is such a fun color. It’s a bright pink hue which is matte. Although it is bright, and evokes a resort or spring vibe, I like how it can liven up a dark winter look on a dreary day. This is my new go-to on grey days when I want to brighten the mood! I also plan to wear it a lot when the temperatures start to warm up in March. It’s a fabulous spring/summer color!

Almay Lip Vibes Girl Boss cream lipstick review

Well, Girl Boss is my favorite color in the collection! I love the icy pink Almay Lip Vibes Girl Boss cream lipstick offers. This is a pretty pink hue to wear daily, during any season. It easily matches any color palette and the blue undertones help to make teeth a little whiter; always love that! I look forward to wearing this color often!

Almay Lip Vibes Skip the Gym cream lipstick review

Almay Skip the Gym cream lipstick is also a great everyday color. It’s slightly more serious than Girl Boss, yet offers the same, seasonless versatility as Girl Boss. This is definitely a color I will be reaching for often!

Almay Lip Vibes Worry Less matte lipstick review

Almay Lip Vibes Worry Less matte lipstick is a darker hue than the other colors I am loving right now. This is a great color tow ear right now. Worry Less by Almay is also a great color to wear at night, since it offers a darker vibe. This will be my go-to lipstick color for evenings! Love!

All in all, the Almay Lip Vibes lipstick collection offers fun colors, serious colors, and everything in between. It’s a versatile collection with a color for every occasion. Love!

Grey faux fur teddy coat

winter outfit ideas san francisco bay area san francisco bay area street style staud clear plastic tote bagsan jose street style winter clothing grey faux fur coat san jose street style cupertino street style

wearing: purple and blue gem earrings / sunglasses / lipstick / blue scarf / grey faux fur coat / black tee / black skinny jeans / clear plastic tote bag / holiday nail polish / black ring / black distressed western style boots /

I am a sucker for  a faux fur coat! When I spotted this grey faux fur coat, I knew I needed to add it to my coat collection. It’s ultra soft, and super cozy! When the weather cools down, I gravitate towards anything soft, cozy, and warm! Love!

Grey is such an easy color to wear; it’s the perfect alternate to black when black feels a bit too dark and heavy. I’m looking forward to wearing this coat throughout the winter, and in February at fashion week in New York! This coat will be fun to wear throughout the winter season. It will pair well over dresses, with jeans, and with holiday attire; it’s quite versatile!

My daughter took these photos over the weekend when it was cold and foggy outside. This coat was perfect to cut the chill, and keep me warm! We stopped in at 85C in Cupertino and enjoyed sweet breads before heading out to run errands. Have you tried 85C? They have such yummy sweet and savory baked breads and pastries. I love stopping in there, and enjoying a treat! If you have a location near you, I highly recommend stopping in, you will love it!
