How to Create the Perfect Matte Lip!! Why My Matte Lipsticks are Here to Stay (Matte Lipstick Obsession)







Wet-N-Wild Mega Last Lipstick in Red Velvet
Beauties,

I have a confession: I am a lipstick hoarder... and NO I don't need help. This is a true statement that can be applied to my life with all accuracy. I love lipsticks. If I was to be featured on an episode of hoarders (by the way I'm too clean to be featured, but imagine with me), I'd have a room dedicated strictly to my obsession with lipsticks. I can see their faces now, in my drawers, cabinets, under the bed, and in shoe boxes will be the lipsticks that I may have began to hoard. #dontjudgeme. My lipstick collection is ever growing and every time I get the opportunity to purchase a new lipstick/lip product I'm purchasing it. SMH! Recently, I've noticed that my obsession has grown for matte lipsticks. Honestly, it's pretty bad, and I'm not afraid to admit that my matte lipstick obsession may just become a permanent obsession for me. Its not a phase. It's something about the matte lipstick for me that reads fierce and fabulous in one swipe to the lips. When I wear a matte lip I literally feel as if I can take on an army of people and slay! Giggles.

I remember when I was strictly a lip gloss only type of girl. I felt that lipsticks made my lips look entirely too big. Now that I'm older, I appreciate my full lips and I love the color pay off and personality offered with a new tube of lipstick. The first time I fell in love with a matte lip was while I was watching the Selena Movie. Jennifer Lopez wore this red matte lipstick throughout the movie and immediately I was like wow...I love her lipstick. I'm not sure what's the color, but I believe it's safe to say that she could have possibly been wearing "Ruby Woo" by MAC (which I don't own yet).





To make a long story short, I love matte lipsticks and as long as they are in production, I'm buying and adding them to my collection. There may be some who are leery about wearing matte lipsticks simply because they can feel drying to the lips. Don't fear, there are some things you can do to prepare your lips for the perfect matte lips. Check them out below:

Creating the Perfect Matte Lip
  1. Exfoliate your lips: Use a lip scrub or make a lip scrub from scratch to prepare your lips. One of my favorite lip scrubs on the go is the ELF lip scrub it's only $3.00. You can exfoliate your lips whenever, wherever. The good thing about the ELF lip scrub is it exfoliates and moisturizes as the same time. Exfoliating the lips will help you to get rid of dead skin. This will ensure that your lipsticks go on smoothly.
  2. Moisturize your lips: I like to moisturize  my lips the night before to prevent my lips from being over drying. I don't suffer from dry chapped lips, but I do experience dryness from some of my matte lipsticks
  3. Use a lip primer: Some lip primers/anti-feathering pencils can help your lipstick to go on smoothly and stay put all day. It will also keep the lipstick from bleeding and separating throughout the day.
  4. Use a lip liner: I must admit, I hate using a lip liner...but if using a lip liner is your favorite thing to do when wearing lipstick, make sure you line your lips to create the best matte lip.
  5. Use a concealer: I always add concealer to my cupids bow when highlighting my face. This helps to accentuate my lips perfectly to create my perfect lip, since I hate lip liners. You can also use concealer to help clean up any mistakes.
At this moment, my favorite matte lipsticks are from MAC, NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream(s), NYX Matte Lipsticks,Wet-N-Wild Megalast Lip Color and Milani Moisture Matte Lipsticks.

Evian Facial Spray Giveaway (OPEN)





Beauties,

The start of Spring is vastly approaching. We are officially close to saying good bye to all of the ridged, cold, and frosty weather! Considering Spring is officially ten days away, and Summer is following suit, I had to share this awesome giveaway with you sponsored by the Wilkes Group. The Wilkes Group is giving away two Evian Facial Sprays to the winner of the giveaway.

Interested in more about the product? Here are some deets:

About the Spray

Evian Facial Spray was originally introduced in France in 1962 at the request of doctors for use on burn patients. It was the first facial water spray in France and was introduced as the first facial spray in the United States in 1978. Because of the current world-wide awareness of the Evian brand name, and the 36 year efforts of the USA exclusive distributor (The Wilkes Group Inc. in Old Lyme, CT), Evian is the only facial spray to be carried by many prestige retail groups including Nordstrom and Sephora. It is also offered in many luxury resorts and hotels such as Four Seasons.

The exquisitely fine mist produced by Evian® Brumisateur® penetrates and rehydrates the upper layers of the skin. Evian® water has a unique mineral balance along with exceptional purity which suits all skin types, even the most sensitive. Leaves skin looking healthy and feeling refreshed. The Facial Spray will offer a great refresher for your makeup throughout the day during the warmer days to come this Spring and Summer.  A light misting will help to set and revive cosmetic colors throughout the day. This allows the skin to be re-hydrated several times without removing makeup. And this is why Evian® Facial Spray helps improve the performance of all color cosmetics. Many make-up professionals prefer Evian® Spray to dilute and blend make-up. Dermatologically tested


Don't miss out on this opportunity!! Simply register for the giveaway below!

Winners will be chosen at random!

Giveaway ends March 29, 2015

Product Review: Carol's Daughter Black Vanilla Moisture & Shine Hair Care Collection







Beauties,

I have been using the Carol's Daughter Black Vanilla Hair Care line for a few months now and it is AMAZING! I originally purchased the sulfate free shampoo and conditioner from my local Target. I loved the smell and the results so much I decided to purchase the hair smoothie and leave-in conditioner. To finalize my collection of products I purchased the hair sheen.  The only product(s) missing from my collection of Black Vanilla Hair Care products is both the Moisture and Shine Hair Oil and Edge Control. I believe that has a lot to do with them being M.I.A. at my local Target.
I know you are probably wondering, Why did you choose this hair care line? The answer to that is simple. This product line is specifically created to take care of dry, dull, and brittle hair. My hair texture is relaxed and it's also colored with permanent hair color . The hair color has grown out to thee ends of my hair, therefore my ends are drier compared to the rest of my hair. To maintain moisture, shine, and beauty. I chose to give these products a try to take care of the dryness I have been experiencing from the hair color. I want to break down each product that I have purchased and give you the deets on each one and further explain why I have all but two products from this hair care line.

My Thoughts/Experience
I know all of that is a lot to take in, but I believe it will help those who are curious about what's in these paraben free, silicone free, Mineral Oil free, Sulfate free products and exactly what they can do for you once you start to use the products. In an instant I notice the smoothness and softness of my hair after I use these products. The smell of the products is absolutely delightful and it lasts on the hair until you wash again. Depending on the day, I combine both my hydrating conditioner and my hair smoothie together for a deep treatment with a plastic cap. I sit under the hair dryer for about 15 minutes and then rinse my hair. I tend to use the hair sheen after I've styled my hair and need to add some shine and moisture. It doesn't matter how much I condition my hair, the colored ends of my hair absorb it all, therefore the hair sheen is a bonus. It adds shine and moisture to my dull ends and gives my hair extra life. I would recommend this product to any beauty or beau who may be dealing with dry, dull, and brittle hair strands. You will feel a difference within moments of use and also with continued use. 

Why do I have all of these products? Why didn't I just stick to the shampoo and conditioner? I believe it's always best to utilize an entire product line when the line offers so many products for you to benefit from. Each product is directly formulated to solve my hair problems as a result of my hair color. In order to receive optimum results it's best to utilize the entire product line. I always suggest doing this if you want to see results. If you're a product junkie like me, you're probably the owner of a a lot of different products and you are probably mix-matching your products. This can be okay to a degree, but keep in mind that it's best to use products from the same product line.
