Lime Crime Velvetine Dupes- Move Over Anasasia Liquid Lips- Here come LA Girl Matte Pigment Gloss! Full Set Swatches!
I'll be quick and brief- because you came here to see swatches, not read makeup prose.
LA Girl Cosmetics came out with these liquid lipsticks that dry into a velvety matte. Sound familiar? It seems it started with the Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipsticks, the Jeffree Star lippies, now Nyx is coming out with their version, Suede Matte...on and on- but LA Girl has a great finish, super duper cheap!

Do you have a version of yourself that feels the most 'you'? Is it a hair color- style of clothing, or even a movie and you think to yourself, 'Man, that is so ME!' I finally found the hair color that reflects who I am and it is such a boost of confidence. Take a look at my dream hair color and the natural makeup I wore to a wedding where I helped the bride with her makeup.

|When the Sub Boxes Arrive|
Due to school/work my blog has been super duper empty. So I've decided to try and up the ante and blog more. Especially since I've been able to amass some killer stuff that I want to post. It's been fun keeping up with new collections and trying to find subscription boxes that are worth the cost every month. One of those really steals my heart. Welcome to six months of Ephemera, by Aromaleigh.

Okay so you see this amazing deal online- be it on Ebay or a website or via Facebook's local sell page....you see that palette you've been dying over and order it for like $20! YES! Then you get it, open it, and one of the eyeshadows is called Chocolate Gordial and you're all, "Whaa?"
Congrats, you bought a fake palette. How can you get educated so you don't make the mistake again? I'll help you discover how to spot those wannabe palettes so you'll never get fooled.

Summer 2015 new release collections are all over the place- shamelessly making us makeup girls go crazy. I'm not going to pretend that I didn't fall head over heels for one of the products that was really cute. Too Faced recently released these super duper addictive heart shaped blushes that I LOVE. The packaging kills me. It's smooth, shiny candy-like plastic that has Too Faced in gold script on the front. I want to hoard them in my purse and I think I have all 6. Let's take a look at 4 of them-

Wowza so I finally (FINALLY) finished my BSN in nursing. I will post on it later but first I wanted to share my latest find: Colour Pop Highlighters! These lovely things are the same creamy, mousse-like formula as Colour Pop's eyeshadows and blushes, but they gleam and glisten- bringing dewy skin in a lovely range of shades.

While Anastasia's website is mysteriously on the fritz (you click and go to an error message if you want to test it out) I was looking for an option to find an affordable matte lip paint. You want a Velvetine from Lime Crime too? To satisfy that itch for a matte lipstick that applies wet I found a new love in La Girl Matte Pigment Lip Glosses. For $5 each (yes, for realio) you can get LA Girl's Matte Pigment Lip Glosses at a fraction of the cost of similar products.
Maybe Rebel is a dupe for Lime Crime's Riot Velvetine? Wouldn't that be nice?!

Too Faced recently released their summer sweet palette: Sugar Pop! A cute metal tin with 9 shades ready for Summer. I love macarons and these little confections color the outside of the palette and the insert within. Want a closer look?

So yeah, I've not posted in eons. BUT I have been working, working like a busy bee to finish school and be smart and swift at work. Both are keeping me humming along and leave little time for blogging.
BUT I wanted to share a new collection from Aromaleigh. I love Aromaleigh. I always have. They make beautiful glimmering products with such quality, intelligence, and thought.
Here is Galactic- a lovely new collection of 10 eyeshadow shades inspired by the cosmos.

Holy moly I am in love with Colour Pop! Basically everything is $5 per item and you can load up your cart for very little. After $35- shipping is free! Pick one or pick a bunch- I promise you'll be addicted once you start.
