Spring Survival: 4 Coral Lippies You Have To Try!

I am SO happy that the weather in Missouri is FINALLY starting to get warmer! In pure joy, I frolicked straight to my Lipstick Drawer. (Yeah, I actually have a dresser drawer full of nothing but lipsticks) and I went through all of them to find ones for Spring to keep on my vanity top. I have about 50 lippies that I want to blog about, but decided that if I did it all at once, it'd take not only forever to type, but also forever for you guys to read, ha ha ha. Hence why I'm going to do a handful at a time with pictures and swatches and descriptions of the colors to help you decide if maybe one, two or even more will work for you! Now I will be blogging about High-end, Low-end, Mid-end...lipsticks, lip glosses, butters, balms, etc. EVERYTHING LIPS for your viewing pleasure. So, let's start!





POP BEAUTY POUTY POP CRAYON in CORAL CRUSH:




This bright orangey-pink shade is gorgeous for Spring. It's matte with a bit of a glossy finish. The coverage can be buildable, but for the most part, it's very sheer. It's a very thin product and smells minty. The color transfers a bit lighter than it looks like it would, but like I mentioned before: The coverage is buildable.


ELF LIP BALM TINT in PEACH



This Lip Balm smells nice, tastes nice and is a matte shade, very sheer and SUPER glossy. It's sheer enough to leave a nice natural looking tint, but wouldn't be buildable.

MAYBELLINE CARIBBEAN CORAL LUSTER



This shade is as Coral as the vintage lipsticks you'd find in your Grandmother's purse. It's a very vintage coral that's beautifuly matte-and the coverage is Fair. It still may seem a tad sheer, but it is buildable. There is a small gloss finish to this one.


HARD CANDY VISIBLY WET SHOCKINGLY GLOSSY LIP PENCIL in PRECIOUS



If you are looking for a bright lip gloss, this one's for you. It's more orange than pink in color, and it has a thin and light texture. It's sheer, but pigmented enough to show up orange with a few swipes. This has a medium glossy finish, and it's matte.

Urban Decay Mariposa Palette Smoky Blue Tutorial

I had the craving to dye my hair blue again last night. Well, after I did, I wanted something playful and flirty to help accentuate my look...and that's where makeup came in!

Let's get on with the tutorial!

Prime your eyelids. I'm using my Elf Glitter Primer.



Next I had taken Elf's Jumbo Eyeshadow Crayon in Forest Nymph and applied it to my eyelids. I smudged it to soften it a bit as a base for a smoky eye.




For this next step, I had taken Mushroom from the Mariposa palette and I applied this to both my inner and outer corners of my eyelids. I left a space in the middle of my eyelids where I will be applying a different color. I also brought Mushroom right above my crease as well to blend and smoke out with my highlight shade.



Next, I had taken the shade Haight and applied it directly to the open space on my eyelids. I softly patted it back and forth to somewhat blend it into Mushroom.


I then applied Skimp under my brow to highlight this look. I also blended a bit into the very top of Mushroom.

Next I applied a bit of the Elf Jumbo Eyeshadow Stick in Forest Nymph again, but this time I used a smudge stick and applied it under my lower lash line.


Next I dipped a sponge applicator back into Mushroom, and patted it directly on top of the where I applied the Elf Eyeshadow Stick.


I then lined my waterline with Too Faced's Perfect Black Eyeliner.


Next I applied a black gel liner from the Music Flower Gel liner palette and created a wing.


I then coated my lashes with a coat of Smashbox's Full Exposure Mascara to top off the look.



This is the finished look! What do you guys think of this eyeshadow look? Would you try it?
Thank you for viewing!

NOTD! Black Multi-Colored Nail Tips!

This is my first actual "NOTD" or "Nails of the Day" Post. I can't wait to share how I do my nails with you guys! I always buy my products on eBay and it may cost me maybe $0.50-$1.00 each time I do my own gels. This is a fraction of the cost that you'd fork over at a salon and it's SO FRIGGIN EASY.

I'm in the process of making tutorials to upload for you guys, and I will absolutely be making one of how I did this set!

On to the picture:


I purchased the nail tips pre-glittered from eBay HERE.


I just glued them on and applied my gel. So easy, effortless and I was finished in no time!

I loved these so much that I'm going to try out a few other nail tips from this seller. I paid less than $3.00 for 50 nails, and they are SO beautiful! How do you guys do your nails? What products do you prefer?
