Recently my boyfriend surprised me with what every girl wants, a little bit of Chanel. Knowing that Im constantly obsessing over lipstick, he surprised me with Rouge Allure Envoûtante and the Precision Lip Definer. The lipstick shade is a beautiful robust pink with a slight shimmer. But I must say that my absolute favorite is the Precision Lip Definer in the shade Tulip. Matching the color of my lips, it is the perfect for that pouty look that everyone wants right now. The Precision Lip Definer also comes with a built in brush and sharpener to perfect looks.
Lately I’ve been trying to change it up a bit in the nail polish department. Life is simply too short to be too serious about nail polish. Gwen Stefani’s Sleigh Parking is the perfect dark burgundy. And not to mention, I would probably buy anything with Gwen Stefani’s name on it.
I never understood the whole fancy shampoo thing. I would try super expensive shampoos from salons and never felt like my hair was that much different. That was until I started using Paul Mitchell’s Awapuhi Wild Ginger Moisturizing Lather Shampoo. My hair dresser introduced me to this due to my somewhat damaged ends, and I after a few days I could already feel a difference. Normally my hair would turn greasy if I strayed away from washing it everyday, but with this product I can go much longer. The bottle that I have is 8.5 oz, but this shampoo also comes in 33.8 oz.
If you have not heard or Lime Crime yet, you may have been living under a rock. Lime Crime’s Velvetines line is basically awesome (that is pretty much the best word to describe it.) The matted velvet finished look is incredible. This may not be an every day look for some of you, but the Red Velvet adds a drastic pop to any outfit. My biggest tip to achieve a finished matte look is to gently exfoliate lips (always remember to do this step or the lipstick may become cakey.) After exfoliating use a lipliner to line lips and carefully apply the lipstick. Fix mistakes and add concealer around your lips to help spreading.
Bye Bye Blemish has been a beauty secret of mine for years, but for a short while the retailer that supplied the product stopped suppling it. To say I was devastated is an understatement. That was until recently when I stumbled upon it at Ulta! If a blemish pops up, simply apply the drying lotion and it’s gone in the morning! I use this product religiously.
