  2. Benefit Feelin Dandy Lip & Cheek Kit Review

    Hello everybody! So recently I bought my very first Benefit Cosmetics kit! My sister and her boyfriend generously got me a gift card for Sephora for my birthday and I just couldn’t resist.  I was so excited to finally try it so I decided to use it the other night when I went out for a casual dinner with the hubs.
    So what comes in the kit exactly? You get a mini version of Posietint, High Beam, Dandelion blush, and the Dandelion Ultra Plush lip gloss.  I have tried Benetint before and I have to admit that I didn’t like it.  But, I also have to admit that it’s because I used it wrong!! When I finally learned, I was amazed! It was a beautiful little flush of color on the apples of my cheeks and combined with the High Beam, it brightened up my entire face.  Just in case you were thinking of trying any of the Benefit tints, remember to apply it BEFORE your powder.  Layering it on top of the powder will make it look streaky and it won’t blend very well.  Also, as a warning… they dry really fast so make sure you blend it out with your fingers as quickly as possible!
    And as always, the Dandelion blush is a beautiful color and perfectly compliments the Posietint when layered on top of it.  If you want the entire effect, don’t forget the lip gloss! I am definitely not a lip gloss type of girl (I prefer lipsticks) and I was really surprised by this one.  Yes, it was sticky and felt like a gloss, but the color was beautiful and went perfectly with the rest of the look.
    So to summarize….. TRY IT! It’s actually a pretty good deal, I think it was like $28 and you get all these products in a cute little box.  Benefit products are always housed within the cutest packaging, don’t you agree?
    Have you tried this kit? Let me know in a comment if you have or if you’re interested in trying! As always, thanks for reading :D

  8. My Top 5 Favorite Lipsticks!

    image

    Hello there readers!! Today will be a simple yet very important topic: LIPSTICKS.  I have developed a recent obsession with these things (you’d think that I had like 12 sets of lips in order to wear them all lol).  It was a very difficult process, but I have come up with my top 5 lipsticks, and here they are in no particular order (except for #1 because that’s legit my favorite one):

    5:Kate by Rimmel in #101: Pinky nude shade that works great for everyday wear and even with a more dramatic smokey eye.

    4: Deborah Milano Atomic Red matte lipstick: beautiful bright red matte color that is perfect for special nights out, especially in the fall and winter time.

    3: Wet n Wild in #511B: I could have sworn this color was called like Fuschia something or the other, but apparently not.  It’s a few years old, but it’s a bright fuschia color that I love using in the summer and spring, but I will definitely still wear it all year round :)

    2: Maybelline Color Sensational lipstick in Deepest Cherry: this is a beautiful dark cherry/wine color that I love for the fall.  I basically wore it everyday a few years ago around Oct/Nov/Dec and I think it looks beautiful against lighter skin tones.

    1: EM Cosmetics lipstick in Violaceous: If any of you guys read my blog, you will know this is my favorite lip color!! It is so creamy and so moisturizing, it feels so luxurious when you apply it.  The color is perfect, it’s like a lilac/purple shade.  I received it in my Ipsy bag a few months ago and let me tell you, I wasn’t too sure about it at first.  I had never tried any plums or purples on my lips before, but I am now a lilac lover!!

    I hope I have inspired you to try these colors or something similar! It’s always great to try things outside of your comfort zone — you will never find products you love if you don’t (ok and maybe products you hate)!!.

    Side note…. I am starting YouTube videos soon.  Let me know what you think and what kind of video you’d like to see!

    Thanks for reading!!
