Wu Tang x Milk Makeup lipstick review

wu tang x milk makeup sacred heaven lipstick review

How cool is the packaging on this Wu Tang x Milk Makeup lipstick! When I first saw this lipstick collection, I fell in love. The collection includes a wide array of colors which are saturated and eye catching. They are cream lipsticks which offer bold colors, and are meant to unearth your deep, inner wisdom while harnessing the raw power of the Wu. How fun is that?!

I decided to purchase this sparkling rose gold hue named Sacred Heaven. It is a nude lipstick with heavy sparkle; so you could call it anything but nude! This is a color you can wear during the day or in the evening. During the day, it’s an edgy neutral. At night, Wu Tang x Milk Makeup Sacred Heaven offers heavy sparkle for a night on the town. Love that!

This is my first lipstick by Milk Makeup, so I wasn’t quite sure what to expect. This lipstick is cruelty-free, vegan, talc-free, gluten-free, and paraben-free. This is important because you don’t want to put a bunch of toxins on your lips; not only can they seep into your skin but lipstick can easily end up in our mouth or on our food. It’s nice to know this one won’t make us sick!

The Wu Tang X Milk Makeup lipstick is a cream lipstick which I found to be non-drying and long lasting. While it can smudge, it does not disappear easily. I had to wipe it off with a napkin to remove the color from my lips. I really like this lipstick, and I would love to purchase additional colors. If you are looking for a saturated cream lipstick in a bold hue, this is the collection for you!

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!

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!
