Huda Beauty’s Liquid Matte lip colors are my absolute favorite. Above pictured is MEDUSA, a trendy, ‘dusty mauve.’ I am wearing it in the following photograph:
The formulation has a pleasant and subtle vanilla scent when applied. The scent dissipates quickly. It goes on wet and dries quickly to a matte finish. I find this brand to have extremely excellent staying power. After eating an apple, unsliced, I did not lose any of the color or have to re-apply. It is only mildly drying to the lips. In fact, I did not really notice any drying after I removed it at all.
Huda is available on Sephora. The company website has more products but does not offer shipping to the United States, unfortunately.
Five out of five starts for this product!
OMG – this is an AMAZING deal. The Urban Decay Naked Smoky Palette for only $27??? Insane. I already own this palette and can attest to the fact that it is AMAZING. If you don’t have it, get it. You will look smoldering hot with these awesome shadows. The packaging is gorgeous too.
You can order yours today here!
I picked up this sweet little set of mini lipsticks by Urban Decay at the Sephora Holiday Preview Event yesterday. This is a great selection of five lipstick colors (pictured below) and will be great for my every mood. They are smaller sized than the regular Vice lipsticks. It’s really a cute little set.
1993 is my fav, actually, because it takes me back to high school days. Back then, we coveted MAC lipsticks and Twig was THE shade with an obvious lip liner around it. And when it wasn’t Twig, it was frosty pinky purples like B-Cup and Pervette (also by MAC). Oh yeah, and of course a MAC eyeshadow in a tacky blue – Tilt was the one – metallic AF.
Okay, I just dated myself. Totally. This makes me think of a convo I heard in a Sephora not too long ago where a prospective employee was being interviewed. They were quizzing her on the history of Urban Decay and were like ‘do you know how UD started?’ She was like ‘…that is before my time…’ I knew… nail polish. I didn’t say though, since I didn’t feel like ruining the vibe of her interview. I was such a Urban Decay fan. When they branched out into eye shadows and lipsticks, I snapped up as many as I could. That Vice re-release of retro shades – I had all of them… And those individual eye shadow pans – I loved it. Those wild colors… And as much Hard Candy as I could afford for my nails. We all wore those ugly plastic jelly rings from HC polishes. OKAY! I have to stop. Too much 90s flashback.
Have a Happy Sunday!
The special Holiday Preview event at Sephora for VIB Rouge members! September 9th, from 8:30am to 10am – I was there…
I am away on holiday now, but that didn’t stop me from going to the local Sephora and indulging. Below is a picture of the Gift with Purchase – a totally sweet Sephora make up bag with cute lips all over it, and some beauty sample-sized items.
The sample items included Fenty Beauty by Rihanna Pro Filt’r primer and foundation, Drunk Elephant Lala Retro Whipped Cream, Too Faced Better than Sex Mascara, Amore Pacific vintage single extract essence, Farmacy’s Honey Savior all in one skin repair salve, Algenist’s advanced lift contouring cream, and Giorgio Armani’s ecstasy shine lip color.
I did also indulge a little too much and my haul is pictured below…
I picked up two of the Holiday Preview items – the Urban Decay Little Vice set of lipsticks and the Smashbox shadow & light travel sized palette set. I also picked up a few things on my beauty shopping list including another Urban Decay Vice full sized lipstick, a Too Faced Peach Kiss lipstick, the mini travel sized Kat Von D under-eye circle set, as well as a lip liner in a shade that will hopefully go with some of the lipsticks in the box.
I picked up a few more things than planned, but I haven’t had a beauty splurge in a while…
Did you go to your local Sephora for this VIB Rouge event?
I was so excited to receive the Sephora Give Me Some Nude Lip Set – mostly because I was looking forward to finally getting an appropriate lip liner. But the set was MISSING the lip liner!!! I called Sephora Customer Service and they were such dolls, helping me out. They are sending me the lip liner separately. I didn’t use any of the items yet, since I thought I’d have to send back my set, but they were kind enough to trust me. That is great service. Highly recommend Sephora!!!
When I saw the 500 point Beauty Insider reward from Too Faced, I knew it was time to spend some of the points I had accumulated. It did not disappoint!!! This cute box of treats had me all excited! I opened it and found the sweetest mini Chocolate Bar palette – perfect size for traveling! It also came with a mini eyeshadow primer, better than sex mascara, and Melted liquid lipstick.
The shades in the mini Chocolate Bar palette are totally perfect. The Chocolate Soleil tint is perfect for a sun kissed glow. I love Too Faced and am excited to bring this palette with me on my next trip!!!
I’ve become obsessed with Rose Gold!
This Rose Gold Tweezerman eyelash curler is my latest Sephora purchase. VIB Rouge is great because shipping is free and fast. Not to mention the constant flow of samples and travel sized products that come along with all the online orders!
This eyelash curler works well and it is so pretty to look at.
Pretty tools make me want to do a pretty job with the make up!
It’s back in stock on the Kat Von D online store. You can purchase it here!!!
I just did, and no regrets now. It is still sold out in Sephora. I am totally excited about this palette. It wont be for work/every day – but it will be for when I want to look like a glamorous unicorn on those nights out.
Pastel Goth palette by Kat Von D!!! It arrived in the mail today. Can’t wait to try it out! Full report once I get a chance to swatch it and do a hot look with it!!!
Anyone out there have the Alchemist palette? Tell me about it! I am lusting over it…
I should have clicked ‘buy’ and ordered this beautiful gem of a palette by Kat von D, but I waited and now it is sold out. I hope it is re-stocked soon! The colors look beautiful and it looks like a lot of fun.
Well, I did order the Pastel Goth palette by Kat von D, so I am excited about that one arriving soon!
