Sephora Haul Product Update

Now that I have had some time to test out all of the other products I have purchased  in my Sephora hauls I thought it was a great time to post a review with my thoughts on all of these goodies!

The items that stick out from my order first are the :

Glow Recipe Watermelon Pink Moisturizer and Glow Sleeping Mask

Both of these products are so amazing! I am in love! I have really oily skin so I have a hard time finding moisturizers that I love but these are incredibly amazing! The sleeping mask can turn my rough patches smooth and makes my skin feel amazing when I wake up in the morning and the moisturizer sits under makeup beautifully! I have found my brand new favorite duo!

Stila Glitter On The Go Liquid Eye Shadow Set

I absolutely love these!! This was the best purchase I could have made! For the price you can’t beat the this value set because you get three small size shades for the price of one large one! I mean how can you beat that! And the best part is you only use a small amount at a time! These really go along way and add the most amazing sparkle and shine to the eye. I now understand why so many people rave about these! They are worth every penny!

Marc Jacobs Beauty Enamored With Shine Vol.2

img_0700

Another value set of mini’s that was so worth every penny! I got my first Marc Jacobs gloss around Christmas when I had a gift card and I fell in love with how beautiful the shade was and how amazing it looked so when I saw this value set I couldn’t say no! These mini sizes are great for carrying in my purse with me and the color variety is so nice to use with almost any different lip color! This is a must have set!

Sephora Collection Cream Lip Stain Liquid Lipsticks

img_0730

An awesome free bonus in my order were these two liquid lipsticks from the Sephora Collection! The shades are so much fun and super wearable for me and the formula and consistency is really nice! for getting these two babies free I am surely not complaining but I really love these lippies! Such a great addition in my haul!

IGK Smoke & Mirrors Conditioning Cleansing Oil and Mistress Hydrating Hair Balm

I felt so specially getting these two full size hair products free in my haul as well! One thing I do want to note is that I believe Mistress product was renamed sometime in the time I got this and when I’m writing this because the packaging and line are the same but the product name is different. Any how, both of these hair products are awesome! I love to use the cleansing oil if it’s been one of those heavy dry shampoo weeks and it makes my hair feel smooth and soft and helps some with the detangling of my damaged ends. The Anti-Frizz Leave in Conditioner or Hydrating Hair Balm is really nice for helping with the hair drying process! I don’t blow dry my hair often because I have color treated hair but when I use this my hair always feels so soft and smooth. I really love these two products! But the price on them it slightly steep so I don’t know that I would pay the full price for these.

My other items were all in the peach collection which I review last month and you can read that here.  I also got quite a few samples I haven’t really kept track of so we will worry about those at a different time. I hope you liked the follow up to the products I got in my Sephora haul!

Colour Pop Haul : July 2018

Yes it is another Colour Pop Haul! What can I say! They have been dropping so many awesome products I couldn’t help but make a few orders!

So here is my most recent haul and review on the items I got!

Fortune Eyeshadow Palette

This palette is the sister to the Fame palette that I got in my last haul! Fortune has all warm tone colors, while the Fame palette has all cool tone shades. I was really excited to get the warm tones as I use a lot of warm tones now that I have learned to blend and build and make dimensional eye look! When I was beginning to dabble in make up I used to think of myself as strictly a cool tone makeup user and lover but I have finally seen the light and joined the warm tone mafia! This palette has so many beautiful warm tones both as matte and shimmer shades. The shade Miser is one of the most interesting shades in the palette with a warm terracotta red base and a duo-chrome blue-green shift! It looked amazing on the lid applied wet! I have been using the palette non-stop since I got it and I can’t put it down!

Next up we have the new dropped items from brand! These we all had been waiting for!

BOOM!

No Filter Foundation- Shade Fair 30

The world has been waiting for this for some time and here it is! The beautiful and amazingly priced foundation! First off I love how they came out with such an amazing shade range! I think they have 42 or something like that shades in both warm and cool tones. There are so many available to suit almost any skin tone and color. The website also offers a great matching tool that offers the ability to pick a shade you are in a popular foundation and it will tell you what your best Colour Pop Foundation match will be. I used this tool and was so impressed that it gave me my perfect shade! They also offer a “Find My Shade” option as well which allows you to pick you undertone and it gives you comparable options. I was so impressed with how well this matched and the formula is amazing! This is a medium to full coverage foundation which I love because one layer will cover my redness and it’s also buildable if I feel like I need more coverage in a certain area! I also love that a little bit goes a long way with this foundation. I normally can cover my whole face on a normal day with just one pump. The finish is what I would call a satin finish where it’s not super matte but not dewy either. This is quite literally my new favorite foundation and for only $12 you can’t beat it!

No Filter Sheer Matte Pressed Powder- Shade Fair

The next item part of their new No Filter Complexion line is this pressed powered. I have loved using this to set the outer area’s of my face. The nice thing about this powder is that it layers amazing over the liquid foundation without looking cakey! I have been loving this powder. I also like to use this when I am having a no make up make up day and just want to help with my redness on my cheeks and just even out my skin. This is a very sheer coverage powder but is quickly becoming my new favorite for setting my face! Oh and did I mention it’s only $9!

No Filter Setting Powder – Shade- Translucent

Talk about an amazing line up! They came out with three different shades of setting powders; translucent, banana, and translucent deep. This is a fantastic baking powder! I have been using it to set my concealer and I have been so impressed! It’s very finely milled and applies really smoothly. It also doesn’t look cakey on the skin which I appreciate and it really sets my make up! This is such an asset to their complexion line!

No Filter Concealer- Shade Fair 02

With the new launch of the No Filter Complexion collection they revamped their concealer shade range. I hadn’t had a chance to try out the concealer yet even though it’s been out for some time and is so highly raved about! And I can say I completely agree with all of they hype! This is only $6 and the formula is incredible. It’s not only light weight but also very creamy and pigmented! The shade I got unfortunately was waaaaay to light for me! Haha! I like my concealer to highlight as well as conceal and I thought I would just pick my own shade rather than listening to the match tool and unfortunately I picked wrong! What’s worse is that I ordered another shade Fair 06 because it’s darker and I thought it would be perfect for my skin color and again I was wrong! Fair 06 is still super light for my skin. It’s better than Fair 02 but still not the shade that I like. I am going to probably place another order and try out Light 12 to see if this is more of the shade I was looking for.

Large Foundation Brush

As part of the promotion they offered a free foundation brush with the purchase of the foundation. I haven’t gotten any of the new Colour Pop Brushes since they came out with their new line of brushes. I really love how high quality this brush is! I have been using it to apply my foundation before I blend it out with a blender and I love how evenly and nicely it applies to my face! I really need to get more of their brushes!

 

img_1161

 

 

Amber Crystal Setting Spray

So I had just gotten this before it went out of stock. When these initially came out as the crystal line I thought the whole line was really cool but I wasn’t really on board with it all. But I thought since I was ordering a bunch of face products I should give the setting spray a shot as well. I got the Amber spray because it is supposed to have a refreshing peach sent. I however can’t seem to smell the peach when I use it. It does have a nice light smell which I like but the spray itself just isn’t a good one for me. When I have used it I notice that my face ends up much more oily by the end of the day and it really defeats the purpose of a setting spray for me if I’m getting shinny by the end of the day. On another note the sprayer on this little bottle isn’t very good! I have to hold the bottle like a foot away from my face to get it to make a nice fine mist and not shoot straight out onto my face. I am going to keep trying to use this but I don’t think it will stick around for long in my collection.

 

This concludes yet another Colour Pop haul and I am so impressed with their new No Filter Complexion line! I have been wearing the foundation very day for work because it is such a nice match for my skin and I absolutely love it! I will hopefully get the correct shade of concealer soon but until then I will keep trying to make what I have work!

Let me know if you have tried out the Colour Pop foundation or powders and what you think! Did the shade match tools work for you?

Too Faced Peach Product Review

Remember my Sephora haul from the VIB sale well here is the review on the peach products I purchased from Too Faced!

Let’s start with the product I was most excited for – The White Peach Palette!

img_0778

I had been waiting to purchase this for so long! It has been just sitting in my Sephora cart for probably about 6 months before I finally got it and I figured no better time than the spring VIB sale! I was so hyped to get this and try it out and looking at the shimmer shades I was just taken back and in such aww! I swatched them with my finger and was so excited because of how much pigment there was and how beautiful they came off using my finger. So the next day I went to use it on my eyes and I was so disappointed. The matte shades are no where near what they should be compared to the Just Peachy Matte’s palette. I had to dip my brush in so many times to even build up the pigment. Then the shimmer shades. They are really beautiful but nothing to write home about. The Peach Ice shade was so hard to apply to the lid even when I wet my brush and the Peach Passion shade wasn’t nearly as pigmented as I had hoped it would be when I applied it to the lid. So least to say I was really underwhelmed by this palette and I actually ended up  returning it.

Primed and Peachy Cooling Matte Skin Perfecting Primer

img_0681

This stuff is incredible! Another item that has been on my wish list for some time and sitting in my cart just waiting to be purchased. I was so happy I finally made the purchase because this is my new favorite primer! I have very oily skin especially when the summer months start to roll around and it gets warm out and with this primer under my foundation I don’t look greasy and I don’t look shinny! Even if it’s an especially warm day with this primer I end up with more of a satin finish by the end of the day rather than looking like a butter ball turkey.  And of course this stuff is even more amazing when used with the peach foundation as well.

img_0678

Which brings us to the next awesome product I finally purchased.

Peach Perfect Comfort Matte Foundation

Not only do these ones smell amazing they are beautiful on the skin. Now I don’t know how someone with dry skin will like this particular foundation because it is a matte foundation but I have been loving it! The only thing I regret is that I got the wrong shade for my skin tone. I thought ordering Porcelain for my pastey white self would be a good shade (yes I know it’s practically impossible to shade match online) but I was wrong! Procelain is actually deeper than I was assuming and is more orange. I end up mixing it with my wet and wild foundation to get a better match and it ends up looking beautiful. The other nice thing is that a little bit goes along way. And considering the price tag on this foundation I’m totally ok with that. Now I know $36 might not seem like a lot compared to other high end foundations but I’m a drugstore girl through and through and I don’t usually like to spend a lot on items that I know I will go through quickly. However this foundation is soooooooo worth the splurge!

img_0780Peach Mist Mattifying Setting Spray

This was the first of the peach products I tried and it is one of my favorite setting spray’s especially for the summer time! It’s got a liquid to powder finish and keeps my skin smooth and matte most of the day. Not to mention it has the amazing peach and sweet fig smell. This is a new bottle since I was almost finished with my first one. With this one you do need to shake it really well so because if you don’t it can end up with heavy white powder spots and could potentially ruin your look but as long as you remember to shake it well then this stuff is the best!

 

The last product I got as part of the peach line was the – Peach Blur Powder

This is raved about for many of the beauty guru’s I follow who have used this and I love it too! I was surprised that this is considered a translucent setting powder even though it has a peachy finish to it the peach color doesn’t come off on the skin. This also has the amazing ability to blur out my pores. I was in disbelief when I used it and watched my face just smooth over and look airbrushed! And to top it all off it smells amazing!

 

The Peaches and Cream collection from Too Faced it truly one of my favorites and I love that I finally took the time to purchase some of these awesome products! I was pretty sad that the White Peach palette didn’t turn out to be what I thought it could be but all in all I really love everything else I have.

Have you tried anything from this line? What is your favorite? Comment below and let me know!

ColourPop Haul!

I am so weak when it comes to new make up at ColourPop! And just wait until you see what I hauled this time!

I will say it’s just a small haul this time but the products are amazing and there is another palette I have my eye on that I think I might see in my near future! But for now here is what I got!

So let’s start with one of the reason that I decided to order! This shadow…It’s just stunning! For ColourPop’s birthday every year they come out with a new birthday shade that not only is full of sparkle but also complimentary to every skin tone and eye color! This year the shade is called Birthday Wish and is a gorgeous champagne base with lots of pink, violet and blue glitter that makes for a stunning shadow! I love the super shock shadows because the formula is unlike any I have every used and it’s amazing on the lid.

Next up we have two of the new Super Star Loose Pigments. I have the shades WKND and Cameo.  WKND is more of a neutral champagne shade that looks great as a highlight or an eyeshadow. Cameo is a peachy, pink, coral shade that just pops on the eyes! I am all about the peach shades though so this one was calling my name! These pigments look great on their own without any glitter glue or with out wetting my brush but if you really want a pop of the sparkle and shine on the lid then wetting the brush is the way to go! I have been loving these and considering getting a couple of the other shades.

Now for the main reason I placed my order! This amazing and beautiful palette! They have finally come out with a cool tone palette! The Fame Palette, I mean how gorgeous is this! There are 8 matte shadows and 8 shimmer shadows. And all of them are the amazing pressed powder quality that ColourPop puts out. I have been using this almost everyday since I got it because there are a lot of different looks you can create with this palette. About the only color I don’t think I have used is the dark gray color just because I’m not sure how to make it look good on my eye’s an not muddy. But I am still working on it!

So along with the Fame palette they brought out it’s sister the Fortune palette. It’s all the warm tone love in the world and I think that will be apart of my next purchase very soon!

 

So like I said just a small haul but still some amazing a great products!

Sephora Haul!! Pt. 2

Who is ready for Part 2!!!!!

Here is my second order from Sephora!

Glow Recipe Watermelon Set

Watermelon Glow Pink Juice Moisturizer-Full Size

Watermelon Glow Sleeping Mask-Smaller Size

Too Faced White Peach Eye Shadow Palette

img_0780

Too Faced Peach Mist Mattifying Setting Spray

Tom Ford Lip Color Trial Size-Shade True Coral

This was part of the reason I made my second purchase…this came free when using the a code for VIB members! I was suckered in because I know I probably wouldn’t get the chance at a free Tom Ford lipstick again!

I also used some more of my points in this box to get some fun sample products.

And the samples for this box as well!

I do have to comment on these samples. The Hourglass sample was really hard to use and I didn’t find it to do much on my skin. The Dior sample is really nice but the mascara wand is HUGE compared to the sample size!

Other than that this is everything I got in my 2nd Sephora Box! I am planning on doing reviews on the products later on once I have really used them and give my thoughts!

My Everyday, Go To Make Up Look

I finally got around to putting this together and I really hope you enjoy! This has been my go to make up look recently that I wear to work or just on days when I don’t have the creative juices flowing!

(P.S. I am by no means a professional I just have a love for makeup and really enjoy creating looks!)

4e33a2e5-f6bb-40bd-b393-7dc10ecdf7d0

Before                                                                After

I always like to start with my eyes first so that if anything has any fall out it doesn’t mess up my face makeup. In this I mainly go over the eye makeup steps and I will list out my face makeup steps at the end.

I have been loving the Too Faced Just Peachy Matte’s Palette from their Peaches n’ Cream collection.

I also am a girl who needs some shimmer soimg_0531 I have been using my peachy shimmer shades from ColourPop Cosmetics to brighten up my look. Pictured here are Super Shock Shadows in Tea Party and One by One. One by One was from their spring collection 2017- last year and is no longer available on their website. Tea Party is the alternative for this one and they also have a pressed powder shadow called Ready or Yacht that is very similar to both and provides the same great peachy shimmer color on the lid.

So I like to start with the Bella Pierre make up base that I received a couple of months ago in my Yes, Oh Yas subscription.img_7081 img_0523I really love how this holds my shadow all day and makes for a nice base to apply my shadows too. In this photo I have set my eyes with the cream shades in the palette. I use them both and like to mix them together because Peach Meringue is more yellow tone and Peach Butter is more pink tone so I find when I mix the two together I get the perfect shade to set my lids.

img_0524

 

 

 

Next I start with my transition shades starting with Peach Tea

 

img_0525

 

 

To add more dimension I then add in some Peach Punch. This also adds in a little more color to the look.

 

 

img_0526

 

From there I add in Peach Cobbler to not only give the look more depth with color but to also deepen the brown and warm hues.

 

 

 

img_0528

 

And now for some more color! I love adding burgundy to almost all of my looks because I find that it makes the green in my eyes pop! Peach Sangria is the type of burgundy that is just one of those staple colors I feel I need in all of my eye looks!

 

img_0529

The last crease shade I add in to really deepen the outer corners and complete the crease look is Peach Tart. It’s a deep warm brown that gives just enough darkness to the outer corner that I need to complete the look.

 

 

img_0530Now for the fun part! The Shimmer! This time I used the ColourPop pressed powder shade in Ready or Yacht. I like to pick up product and then spray my brush with some setting spray to help intensify the shimmer and make it really pop on the lid. With the super shock shadows from ColourPop I don’t have to wet my brush at all they are a mousey formula that make them super shinny and stunning!

 

Now to blend it all together I go back in with the brush I used with  Peach Sangria with no additional product just to blend out any harsh edges from the shimmer shade. Once that is complete I go through the rest of my make up routine.

For my face I use a primer my favorite right now is the Rimmel Stay Matte that I got in my Ipsy a couple months back. I then apply my Wet n’ Wild Photo Focus Foundation in Shell Ivory (which is more of a pink undertone) with my beauty sponge. I think apply my Maybelline Age Rewind Concealer in the brightening shade. I think set my whole face with my Coty Airspun loose setting powder in Neutral. I think use the Too Faced Chocolate Soleil bronzer, followed by the Milani Cosmetic’s blush in Luminoso (a really beautiful peach) and for highlight I have been using Becca’s Moonstone.

I like to set my face with setting spray before I apply my mascara and lipstick and for this I used the Peach Perfect Matte Setting Spray from Too Faced. I think used the Butter London Double Decker Mascara which I got in last month’s Boxy Charm and the Adesse New York Liquid Lipstick in the most recent Boxy Charm on my lips.

I hope you enjoyed the look! If you want to see more let me know!

A Surprise In The Mail!

Last week the lovely

Regan Alires Younique Presenter

Started a new feature on her beauty Facebook page called “Name this Look”! The first look she posted was a smoky rose gold look. I am always so impressed with how her different looks come out and this one really stood out to me! I thought a good name for it would be “Carmel Mocha Surprise” because of the warm tones and the shimmer that popped on her lid. And with to my surprise she liked my name choice!

Here is her look!

img_0448Gorgeous right!

Well because I helped her name this look she sent me some goodies in the mail and I just had to share what she sent me!!!

img_0397Look at these goodies! I was really excited to give the shadows a try as I haven’t had the opportunity to try the Younique eye shadows. She also sent me this sample packet of perfumes. I’m not a big perfume wearer but this was a nice little sample packet for one time uses and to get a nice idea of what each scent is like.

Now lets dive in to these two shadows!

 

Astute

img_0399

img_0400

This is the most beautiful and perfect transition shade! Its the perfect neutrally warm brown that you can build up in the crease and really helps to make your look blended and gives a nice place for you to start building in colors on top of as you build the look. The other thing that totally impressed me was the pan size! These are nice big pans sizes compared to other press powder shadows I have. These are very buttery also!

 

Exhilarated

img_0402img_0403This shade is a gorgeous shimmer! I really wasn’t sure how I would like it because in the pan is has an almost purple flip to it and I thought it would end up looking funny when I applied it but I was completely wrong! It’s beautiful! I didn’t even have to use my setting mist to make my brush wet for it to have amazing pigment and shine! This shadow was also very creamy and pigmented! A total win!

 

Over all these shadows are incredible! They are very generous pan sizes and retail for $14. The other thing I really enjoy but didn’t get a photo of was each shade comes with it’s only little compact and a sticker to put on the back of the compact or back of the pan so that you can quickly and easily find the name of the shade you are looking for. There are 34 shades that I can find on the website and they all look amazing! I think I will be trying more in the future! Thank you Regan for sending me this awesome surprise! I really appreciate this gift!

 

Thank you for stopping by and keep an eye out for what might be up around the curve!

New at ColourPop

ColourPop is a USA made company based out of L.A., California that makes high quality affordable make up!! I have been ordering from them for years now and they quickly became one of my favorite makeup brands!

I love all of their new launches and I’m always get excited to see what they will come out with next!

One of their newest launches is their new:

Lux Lipsticks

Their PR packages when out early enough to be able to watch all of my favorite YouTuber’s review and swatch all of the colors, giving me a good idea of what I wanted to buy. This round I did only buy 4 just to make sure I loved them as much as I thought I would and that way I could get a feel for the formula and shades. To get free shipping I tossed in an eye shadow to put me over the $30!

A little bit about these lipsticks from the ColourPop website:

 “Our exclusive LUX blend of Acai, Jojoba and Pomegranate Seed butters hydrate and keep your lips looking fresh AF. Natural antioxidants protect your lips from environmental stressors and premature aging.”

The packaging itself is also so lux! These lipsticks feel like they should be in a high end boutique but have a drugstore price! The rose gold tube really fits with the sophisticated look of these lipsticks. I was so impressed when I first opened these beauties! I don’t know how else to explain how lux these feel than that they feel heavier and more prominent than your average drugstore lipstick.

And to top it off they are only $7 each!

Now for the shades!

Stone Fox

img_0145

Stone Fox is a peachy pinky nude. The website lists it as a pale pink but with my pale skin down it comes out more peachy than true pink. This is a beautiful nude and something I am stretching out of my comfort zone having. While I am much paler I struggle wearing this color because I feel like it washes me out. I think in the summer when I have more of a tan I might like it a bit more. I am bound and determined though to wear this color more and push past my comfort zone.

Money Side Up

img_0148

Money Side Up has quickly become one of my favorites even making it into my every day lipstick bag. This to me is the perfect every day pink shade. It’s not so bright that it makes you feel bold and it’s not so pale that you don’t feel like your face is being washed out! It’s seriously the perfect pink! This one to me is the my lips but better color! The ColourPop website describes this as a bubblegum pink but I would say it’s more of a muted bubble gum pink.

Ghosted

img_0152

This is another everyday shade for me! Ghosted is darker than Money Side Up but is still a beautiful medium rose shade. It’s deep enough to add just a bit more mystery but not so deep that your making a statement with a bold lip! I have been really loving this color and it also is getting a lot of use.

What If

img_0155

I want to apologize for my lip swatch on this one as I did a terrible job and my lips were some what stained and raw from lip swatching one of my monthly subscriptions. However, What If is very bold and bright! It’s a stand out shade that makes a statement. Described as a cool tone fuchsia this color is fun and perfect for the up coming spring weather! I can’t wait to wear this one a bit more over the spring and summer!

 

All and all these lipsticks are Amazing!! The formula is like no other I have ever tried and I have been wearing these almost daily. The difference I have seen in my lips is incredible with the softness and my dry lips are completely gone! I can’t wait to get more of these in different shades and I highly, highly recommend these!! The quality is like no other and the price point can’t be beat!

My New Favorite Lip Gloss!

I am slowly but surely getting in on the glossy lip trend! I think mostly because now that I am older I have the money to afford nicer lip gloss that isn’t sticky, tacky or full of chunky glitter that makes me look like I am 5! That’s not to say I don’t like glitter in my gloss I just like subtle glitter now.

So for my work Christmas party I won a Sephora gift card and I got another one as part of the Secret Santa gift exchange that we did as a group. So this meant I was getting something new and something I wouldn’t normally splurge on!

So off I went to the closes Sephora on my day off to go and see what on my wish list I would buy…(there is a lot on my wish list-adulting/bills suck). After wandering the store for probably about 20 minutes looking through all of the options I had thought of I decided I was going to get a new lip product…surprised…..if you have read some of my other posts your probably not surprise that this would be what I would be drawn too!

So I got….DRUM ROLL PLEASE….

Please let us take a moment for the beauty that is Marc Jacobs gloss…

 

……………………………………………….

 

Isn’t it just beautiful! This is the Marc Jacobs Enamored Hi-Shine Lip Lacquer Lipgloss in the shade “Allow Me”, retail price $28. This is a rosy color with the ever so slight gold glittery flip to it! I probably swatched this 3 times before I finally decided this was the one for me! Just because there were so many choices and I wanted to make sure I picked one I would use a lot considering the price point.

The swatch is stunning and so very, very pigmented! I was actually a little surprise that this was as pigmented as it was considering that it was a gloss. But to be totally honest I had never actually swatched one of these glosses because I never thought I would own one. One of my favorite YouTuber’s loves the shade “Sugar Sugar” which is more if a nude color and I think if I ever get another shade of this gloss I will get that one.

This gloss however is incredible! It applies amazingly on it’s own and layers even better to many of the liquid lipsticks and matte lipsticks I already have in my collection! The formula is very smooth and comfortable to wear. It’s not sticky or tacky and last quite awhile even through drinking and eating. I am so impressed and totally understand the hefty price tag.

This is just the gloss on my lips. It’s almost a my lips but glossier color and I am in love! Look at that shine! I do have my selfie light on it to brighten the photo but this is just beautiful!

img_7448This is with the gloss applied over my favorite new lip color from my December Ipsy by OFRA. They both are pinky colors but I mean just look at how nicely it blends with the lip color! I am so excited to keep using this gloss.

The other reason I was so keen to getting a lip product that was higher end was because I know it will last a long time and not be something that I totally use every day like a foundation or concealer that tends to disappear pretty quickly (even though I have been using this every day haha).

 

Thanks for stopping by and keep an eye out for what might be up around the curve!
