ColourPop Ultra Satin Lip Color "London Fog"

ColourPop Cosmetics released their Ultra Satin Lip collection several weeks ago, and I picked up a couple of new shades, including this beautiful blue-toned red, called London Fog.  The texture on these is very light and not gloppy or sticky at all.  I really like semi-matte finish as well.  Not shiny like a gloss, and not completely dry/matte like the Ultra Matte Lippies.  

I love this color.  It will be a nice variation to my normal warm/bricky reds I wear.

FOTD: Urban Decay Gwen Stefani Pallet, LitCosmetics Glitter Junkie, House of Lashes, and Kylie Cosmetics LipKit 22

Today's look is brought to you by some of my favorite things: Urban Decay's Gwen Stefani pallet, House of Lashes, glitter from LitCosmetics, and the Kylie LipKit in 22.  

When I say that the Urban Decay Gwen Stefani pallet is my favorite, I mean it.  I use this thing daily.  It is the best assortment of neutrals I own, and has application from everyday to rich smokey looks. The LitCosmetics kit I purchased came with the water resistant base.  As much as I love using glitter, I hate having fallout all over my face.  Let me just say, there was zero fall out.  No flaking.  No cracking.  No fading.  Nothing.  This liquid base made it through my entire day, a 3 mile run, and it looked like I just applied my makeup.  Unbelievable!  I'm absolutely sold on this.  The other great thing? All of the glitter washed right off with my philosophy Purity face cleanser.  

Another obsession of mine?  House of Lashes.  This girl was blessed with super fine, short, blonde lashes.  No amount of mascara gets the effect I am looking for with a dramatic look, so I leave that to the falsies.  Not to mention, falsies are so much easier to deal with than the time it takes to build mascara to my liking.  So, enter House of Lashes.  In particular, their Pixie Luxe and Noir Fairy sets. Absolutely gorgeous, well made, and long lasting.  I couldn't be happier with this Instagram find!  

Lastly, Kylie Jenner's LipKits are the absolute best, long lasting, liquid matte lipstick available.  No fading, no cracking, no dry lips.  It's no wonder the colors sell out within minutes of being released!  In this look I am wearing 22, which is a muted brick color.  Gorgeous!

Below is the breakdown of the entire look - enjoy!

My LitCosmetics Haul: Magic Dragon, Really Nude, Soul Sister, Abba, Glitter Junkie and Mother Earth

On St. Patrick's Day, Lit Cosmetics had the most beautiful freebie on orders - the color Magic Dragon.  I was so mesmerized by the images on Instagram, I had to pull the trigger on an order, so I went all out!  I picked up one of the Lit Kit's with the Water Resistant base, Forever Wear glitter base in Almond, and the colors below.  I couldn't be more excited to play with these colors.  I already have visions of them on top of liners and with cut creases.  I am also looking forward to trying these bases, as I tend to have issues with either watery eyes, or just plain 'ol fall out, so I am hoping between the two, these suckers stay put!

All six colors below.  There is also a video below that really shows the sparkles!  Enjoy!!

Morphe Pallets: 35W, 35O and 35D

(Morphe 35W)

Several weeks ago I was able to grab some of the Morphe pallets off of their sale.  I got three, the 35W (warm), 35O (orange) and 35D (dark) pallets and they are just beautiful!  The pigmentation on these pallets is over the top, the colors are very blendable and creamy.  The mattes don't tug, and the metallics/frosts don't fall out.  I couldn't be happier and find myself using the pallets daily.  

Feel free to click any of the pictures for a larger view.  What is your favorite Morphe pallet?

Swatches: Tarte Make Them Stare Set of 5 Amazonian Clay Waterproof Eyeshadow Sticks

What is it: A set of five dazzling, waterproof shadow sticks from tarte that are infused with Amazonian clay.

Who is it for: Anyone who wants an enchanting stare this holiday season with a mix of soft, wearable eye shadow shades.

Why is it different: The creamy, Amazonian-infused shadow sticks are back! These waterproof, velvety-smooth wands glide on like silk and wear like iron. The set offers an array of must-have shades that deliver gorgeous, budge-proof pigment for any occasion. Perfectly packaged in a festive gift box, these ultra-portable and easy-to-apply cream shadows make a dazzling gift for any girl who's dashing through her day.

How do I use it: Apply each shade directly to your lid. Then, using your fingertip or a shadow brush, gently blend up toward the crease. For a more dramatic look, gently smudge along the lower lash line.

From tarte.

  • 0.058-oz Amazonian Clay Shadow Wand in Copper, a shimmering copper shade
  • 0.058-oz Amazonian Clay Shadow Wand in Sugar Plum, a shimmering plum shade
  • 0.058-oz Amazonian Clay Shadow Wand in Champagne Pearl, a shimmering champagne shade
  • 0.058-oz Amazonian Clay Shadow Wand in Smoky Topaz, a creamy taupe shade
  • 0.058-oz Amazonian Clay Shadow Wand in Sage, a shimmering olive green shade

If you are an eyeshadow crayon lover, these are absolutely fantastic!  The colors are very pigmented, very blendable, and once set, do not budge.  I love using these on my lower lashline, which tends to carry my eyeliner all over my face :(  Not with these though!

My go to shade has been the Sage and the Champagne Pearl (two colors on the right).  The Champagne is a great highlighter, and also helps brighten the eyes, eyebrows, and even as a highlight for your blush.  

There is a video below which really shows the intensity of these shadows.  I absolutely love them!


I purchased this set over the holidays on QVC, but they are no longer available.  I did find a similar set on Macy's website for $35, as well as the Tarte website for $9 each.

Bitter Lace Beauty UnBirthday Highlighter and Kylie Lip Kit in Mary Jo

I love discovering new indie companies and sharing them with you!  I was running through Instagram the other day, and stumbled across Bitter Lace Beauty, an adorable Etsy Shop that has a variety of highlighters to choose from.  I picked up UnBirthday, which is a gorgeous swirl of turquoise, gold, pink, coral and violet.  When brushed on the skin, it is the most beautiful and bright way of turning the lights on your skin.  I couldn't be happier with the purchase, and I know I will be going back for more!  

I purchased two UnBirthday, one for me, and one for my sister.  Look at how different each one is!

Above, the UnBirthday I kept for myself.  I absolutely love all of the colors, and look at how illuminating it is!  The colors all swirl together beautifully, and make just a gorgeous color on the skin.  With precise application, you could grab any of the colors individually to use as an eye-shadow or highlight as well.  

Below, UnBirthday on me.  Everything I am wearing is broken down below:
