Beauty 411: My top 5 favorite red lipsticks.
I'm one picky girl when it comes to red lipstick. I've tried dozens and there are two criteria a good red lipstick must meet: staying power + matte. Perfect skin wouldn't hurt either which is why I'm currently using a Dermablend foundation to even out my complexion. Today I'm hoping to save you a bit of cash and share my top red lipsticks in my arsenal.
It should be noted that NYX is still my favorite but all five are swoon-worthy from vampy red to the perfect cherry red depending on the occasion. See below for the exact color and shopping link. I'd love to hear your favorites, too!
Happy shopping! xo
Great skincare, anti-aging and invasive treatments are a part of aging and if there is one message I could stress it’s that knowing and trusting your medical professionals is absolutely paramount. Just as it’s important to know what we are consuming or putting into our bodies. Medical technology has advanced so much that surgery is no longer a requirement which makes life quite simpler and more affordable.
I’ve been receiving quite a bit of new beauty products as of late and I ain’t mad about it. Spring is the perfect time to switch skincare routines and opt for lighter, cleaner beauty. Thank God it’s here. It’s been a long winter. And while I haven’t gone 100% clean beauty, I am slowly still inching my way. Additionally, there were some purchases made towards restocking my favorites on last minute runs before Europe. I have to say I was pleasantly surprised at some of my drugstore finds.
The thing about skin is that it changes all the time. It changes with age. It changes with the seasons. It changes with stress. And while yes, I receive quite a bit of product to review, I hope you know by now that I only write about people, places, things that I truly love.
I will wholeheartedly admit that I am lover of all beauty products. It really doesn’t matter what kind or from where. I will shop at a drugstore as much as I will shop online or at a high end department store. The fact is, I LOVE beauty.
You guys now I love a good beauty bargain and unbeknownst to me, Macy’s has recently launch a new subscription box service called the Beauty Box! For just $15 a month, recipients receive a chic pouch, 5 deluxe samples + 1 bonus sample and $5 off their next beauty purchase. This is truly the perfect solution to testing the waters on a brand you’re not too sure about which happens all the time to me!
I don't fall for beauty trends all that often. Perhaps it's my age but I know what I like. Fashion trends...yes, guilty as charged. Typically you will find me in a neutral lip or a bold lip. No in between but always matte. Lipgloss? Not so much, I kind of exhausted that in my late 20's but a strong lip...always!
What's new pussy cat? So MUCH! May is by far the busiest month for me personally and professionally. You could say I am savoring the quiet of April 30th because I know all hell is about to break loose. With that said, you know I am nothing if I am not a multitasking momma on the go which is why I want to introduce to you the newest lifesaver to my beauty collection. Meet Beauty by POPSUGAR!
A lack of lipstick is a lackluster day for this girl. Every once in awhile I will sport a nude but very very rarely. I can tell you when I do, it's always Urban Decay. It's quite literally my #1 favorite cosmetic brand in the drawer and has remained so for several years. And this hinges on one thing alone - lasting power.
When I look at a 60-minute increment, a 30-minute increment, hand to God, I often think how many things can I accomplish in that time frame? It sounds a little insane but as a busy, working mom - efficiency is everything. But efficiency does not mean you have to sacrifice fun. Making the ordinary tasks in life a fun activity is my role as a mother. Enter bath time!
I never used any sort of toner until my mid-30's. Quite frankly, it seemed like a lot of work to add an extra step into my skincare routine. How's that for laziness? Don't answer.
