Makeup Products For a Presentation!

Hey everyone! I wanted to share with you today the makeup that I wore for a presentation! When you present in front of people, you really want to make sure the makeup blends well with your skin, you create a little glow, and also add some color to your face!

Here are the products I used:

Here’s a picture where I redid the makeup look (I forgot to show the lipstick though sorry!) Good luck on any presentations you have!

    HOLIDAY Party Look: Deep Red Lips

    Hey everyone! It’s finally December and you know what that means.. holiday parties! Most of your friends will be going for the medium red shades so an easy way for you to stand out is to go for a super dark and deep red!
    My current favorite is Revlon’s Super Lustrous Creme Lipstick in the shade Black Cherry. I have shown you pictures of this lipstick before but I don’t think I’ve ever shown what it looks like on my lips. Dark red lips add such a fullness to your lips and also make your teeth look whiter!

    Send me your favorite dark red lip shade! Happy December!

    REVIEW: Maybelline SuperStay 24Hr 2-Step Lip Color

    I am so excited to review an amazing product for you today! It is the Maybelline SuperStay 24Hr 2-Step Lip Color (I used the shade “Keep It Red”). It retails for $8.99 and at ULTA they were doing a BOGO 1/2 off sale! This product contains a non-drying stain and a lip balm/gloss. This lip stain has, by far, the longest lasting power of any product I have EVER tried! With that being said, I suggest putting the color on slowly to make sure that it is applied perfectly because once it sets, it sets. The good thing though is that the applicator is shaped in a way that you can use the main part to get the color on your lips, but then use the tip to accurately outline your lips.

    REVIEW: Maybelline SuperStay 14HR Lipstick

    Hey everyone! If you saw my last post, I mentioned that I was excited about all of my new products! I decided to try them right away so that I could write reviews for you guys! I’ve realized that when I’m working all day, I’ll apply lipstick in the morning but forget to reapply it throughout the day. With that being said, I realized that I needed to try lip products with some serious lasting power. The first product I purchased and tested was the Maybelline SuperStay 14HR Lipstick in the color “Forever Fuschia”. It cost $8.99 and is the most perfect, everyday color for my skin tone!

    ———————————————————————————

    The Test: This product applies just like a lipstick and the “Forever Fuschia” has a little bit of shimmer to it. NOTE: It is important to use a lip scrub or a method to get rid of dead skin on your lips before applying this lipstick. If you don’t do this, it will definitely show. The first row of photos was taken right after I applied the lipstick.

    The Results: This second row of pictures is after wearing the product for about 8 hours. In that time, I took a nap, ate a meal, drank water, and wiped my mouth with a napkin. As you can see, a lot of the color did wear off but I’m still left with a color that is more fuschia than my bare lips. I will say this lipstick does not feel like a stain and its rather difficult to rub your lips together with it on. However, it’s comfortable to wear and I forgot I even had it on. This product really only lasts about 9 hours at most instead of the full 14 like the packaging claims. I would give this product 3 out of 5 stars.
     

    If you were wondering, my scarf is from Payless ShoeSource- yes they do sell more than shoes. Haha Anyways, go be fabulousand I will talk to you in my next post!

    Mini Ulta Haul!

    Hello everyone! After work today, I decided to pick up some new goodies at Ulta! They just built one near me and I was soo excited about that. Since it’s getting near the holiday season, Ulta has so many new gift sets and products that it took some self control to not buy more things. Here’s what I ended up getting!

    1. Maybelline SuperStay 14hr Lipstick in “Fuschia Forever”- $8.99
    2.  O.P.I Nail Lacquer in “Muir Muir on the Wall”- $2.50 (clearance is the bomb!)
    3. Essie Nail Polish in “Summit of Style”- $8.50
    4. Maybelline SuperStay 24 2-Step Color in “Keep It Red”- $8.99


    One great thing about Ulta is that they usually do a buy one, get one half off sale for certain brands. Maybelline had that deal this time so the second product only cost me $4.50 instead of $8.99! This visit made me so excited about future blog posts, I think I am literally going to review everyone of these products.

    Stay tuned for the reviews!
