AFFORDABLE LIQUID LIPSTICKS
If there is any makeup product that I love the most it would hands down be any lip product. As you read before, I always find at least one that I can’t refuse. I love the variety of colors, the different textures, and the finishing touch that they add to any look.
This past week I went to CVS in search of the ELF liquid lipsticks that has been the talk around Youtube but unfortunately I did not find them. Even though I was a little bummed out I was even more surprised to discover the new additions to drugstore makeup. You can pretty much find anything on trend in drugstore makeup.
I left with the Milani Arome Matte Lip Crèmes. Milani has never failed me when it comes to lip products! They are a dream! Always creamy, pigmented, and smell like vanilla. These lip cremes check off everything on the list. They dry within a minute, once dry there is no transfer, last for hours, and like any other liquid lipstick look best if you scrub your lips first and apply a light moisturizer.
As you can see Precious is a beautiful “cool – toned rose” shade. It is not too deep that it can’t be worn as an everyday lip color. It is perfect. I also love Covet! It is a warm brown shade, described as “vampy” on the Milani website. It doesn’t make my lips appear ashy or washed out. It is very pretty in natural light. Pretty was a little harder for me to wear. Because it was so pigmented it was a little too pink. Described as a “Nude pink” on the website. Often times pairing a lighter shade with a lip liner will help to even things out but for me this wasn’t a good pairing with Milani’s nude lip liner. I’ll play around a little bit to see if theres another lip liner that works better but this just may not be a shade for me. It looks absolutely gorgeous here on my arm but dries differently on my lips.
Overall, these are winners in my book. They are affordable (mine were buy one get one half off). Milani has 24 shades to choose from online. What more could you ask for?!
See You Friday
MY LIPS BUT BETTER
You can never have too many nude lip stick, stains, or glosses. The moment I go through mine, clean them out, say I don’t need anymore; is the exact moment I discover another one that I just have to HAVE. The new one is creamier, just the right shade, last all day, and I convince myself and others around me that I just need it. Lately, I’ve been more selective about what I’m choosing to bring home. I have not one regret about the Bobbi Brown Nude Lip Trio that is currently on sale in the annual Nordstom Anniversary Sale.
This set comes with an art stick liquid lip, a lip pencil, and a lip color. It states that it is creamy, last up to eight hours, is semi- matte, and can be combined together for even longer lasting wear. If you are one of those people who isn’t completely sold on the matte lip but still likes the look, this kit would be perfect for you because it is a semi matte finish.
I love this kit because like the title says it looks like my own lips but with a little something extra. It feels moisturizing, which is so necessary. When I put the combination of all three products to the brunch test the color lasted the entire time and a few hours after. This color can be worn all year round. Making this a great investment!
If you ventured out to the Nordstrom anniversary sale what were some staple pieces that you picked out?
See you Friday!
