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!

December beauty bag: Kerastase

kerastase hair spray review

Can you believe it is already December? It feels like I just did my November beauty bag round up! I haven’t added much since my last beauty bag post. There are only two products I started using since we last spoke about what’s in my bag. They both happen to be Kerastase, and they both happen to be styling products!

My oldest daughter is on her school’s cheerleading squad. Her hair has to be worn up, and it has to stay up; despite tumbling, jumping, dancing, and stunting. Since her her hair has to basically be cemented to her head, I am always on the hunt for the perfect hair spray. This is it!

The Kerastase laque extreme holds her hair in the perfect pony tail, allowing her to perform her dances, cheers, stunts, and jumps worry-free. Love that! She doesn’t need to spray it multiple times to make sure it is holding, it just holds. It is also working well because it does not leave her hair sticky or greasy. Kerasrase’s laque extreme also washes out nicely. It’s the perfect hair spray!

For me, I don’t need to have my hair perfectly perfect. In fact, I like movement in my hair. After all, my style is California Casual since this is where I am born and raised! I like my hair to be tame, without being stiff. Kerastase’s Aura Botanica eau de vagues is perfect for everyday hair-styling. It tames my flyaways and allows me to give myself a natural hairdo without looking like 1980s mall hair-let’s face it, I already did that in the ’80’s! haha, Love!

Holiday Gift Guide 2018: gift ideas for teens

holiday gifts for teens: Kylie Jenner Kylie Cosmetics lip kits featuring Kylie Cosmetics matte liquid lipstick and lip liner / Kylie Cosmetics velvet liquid lipstick /

It’s official! I have a high school teenager in the house, and she has informed me of what is hot, and what is not, in the world of high school teens. So, it is with the authority of a high school freshman that I bring you this holiday gift guide featuring gift ideas for teens.

Teenagers are typically the most difficult group of people to purchase holiday gifts for. They only shop at certain stores, and they only like specific pieces from those stores. If you buy the wrong color or item, even if it is from a “cool”store, it could still be a complete bomb.

My daughter has informed me the best rule of thumb is to buy clothing in black or grey. Only certain pull-overs can be ivory. Teens do not want glitter or sequins; so those days are over for these kids! Clothing needs to be plain, dark, and understated; yet still display cool brand names such as “Pink” or Abercrombie.”

The following items were hand-picked by my teen daughter who is a freshman in high school, and knows what is cool, and what isn’t cool. I assembled everything she suggested in the shopping widget below.

Sometimes I cannot clip the dark color, so you might see an item in a light or uncool color. Simply click through and select the darkest color possible; and then it will be cool for a holiday gift for a teen! Be sure to disable ad blocker for my website so you can see the shopping widget below!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope your teen loves these gifts!
