Smashbox Always on Liquid Lipstick

Hello Passionista!

I love my nudes and flesh tone lipsticks, but this week I decided to do something different. I’ve been rocking this Smashbox always on liquid lipstick in the color Miss Conduct. This is actually a sample I received in a Ipsy bag months ago.

I like red lipstick. It makes me feel pretty and fierce on the inside and outside. But I normally only wear it for special occasions not a everyday thing. I wanted to do something different so I’ve been pairing my cheetah print flats (shoes) and red lip stick for this week office fashions. The color is not to bold. It’s a darker red which I like.

I’m a fan of the Smashbox brand and the color is growing on me. I believe I would purchase this color lipstick by Smashbox once I finish this sample tube. It’ll be a good color option to add to my holiday collection of lipsticks.

Normally, I like to line my lips with a lip pencil before using a lipstick. But I only have brown tone lip pencils and I don’t think it looked good with red. So what color liner should I use? Red? What’s a cheap brand to try that has a good red lip pencil?

December Ipsy Bag Review

Hello Passionistas

There has been soo much going on that I am just now posting this review of my December Ipsy Bag. I must say I really enjoyed this months bag. I was thinking about maybe canceling my subscription for Ipsy because I never actually re-purchase any of the items- but this bag has encouraged me to keep my subscription just a little longer.

This is what I got this month:

So getting different brands of makeup brushes in my subscription make up bag is a refresher. This is the 3rd brush I have received in a ipsy bag. I enjoy testing out new and different brushes. I always have dirty brushes, so having clean back up brushes is least a plus. You can never have too many makeup brushes.

img_0380You all should know by now I love sheet mask. To my surprise I received 2 sheet mask this bag, Purlisse Green Tea + Ginger Rejuvenating Sheet Mask and Coconut + Rice Nourishing Sheet Mask. I’ve never heard of this brand before, but I like the product. I was excited about the Green Tea and Ginger mask, so I used it first. It was as expected smelled great, felt soothing, and left my skin feeling refreshed.

Charcoal is a booming trend the skincare industry. This winter I have taken a high sense of liking to anything charcoal in skincare products. This Global Beauty Card Charcoal wash-off mask is a wonderful treat to play in. I haven’t quick used it because I waiting for the right moment. The product is a mud based solution that helps unclogs pores and life away impurities. I want to wait until my skin is clogged with 2-day makeup and sweat cause I’ve been to busy partying … ha!

I love Smashbox. I love red lips. So…. this Smashbox Lipstick in the color Legendary was a great added accessory to my makeup looks. I am not as much as a red lip girl as I’d like to be. But this little red stick is the perfect size for my red lip moments.

I have received like three City Color Cosmetics Shimmer shadow in my bag, this one is  in the color It’s A Girl. I love these shimmer shadows, they are super pigmented and rich in color. I currently wear a bronze shimmer shadow from a summer bag I received -with my everyday makeup look.
