Is Keith Gordon utterly hot in ever single 80’s flick every? Back to School, Christine, he’s such a freaking hottie. Bad news though he’s like bald now and in his 50’s. Where did the time go?

Essence Plump No Clump Mascara Review

Essence Plump No Clump Mascara

Things you need ASAP, Essence Plump No Clump Mascara ($4.99)! Best mascara evers people! I typically dislike mascaras with huge club-like applicators (I’m talking to YOU Lashblast) because I’m clumsy and I’ll likely shoot poke my eye out when using it. Plus honestly, do we really need a huge applicator? It seems unnecessary and it tends to lead to messy applications!

But Essence Plump No Clump changes everything….EVERYTHING!

Colourpop Super Shock Cheek Review & Swatches

Colourpop Super Shock Cheek Blushes

Colourpop Super Shock Cheek Blush ($8) released in an array of gorgeous shades earlier this Spring and as I love of blushes I knew I had to try these. Colourpop Super Shock Cheek Blush at a glance appears very innovative just like Colourpop’s incredible line of eyeshadows however, after trying them they did quite remind me of another formula (more on that in a bit!).

The appealing aspect of Colourpop Super Shock Cheek and well, all of Colourpop’s offerings is the very inexpensive price tag of a mere $8 each for 0.15 oz. I mean pigmentation, an incredible formula, and a cheap price tag? Yes, please. I don’t know about you but discovering indie brands like Colourpop is equivalent to winning a small lotto! They have great packaging, a stream of steady releases, outrageous and tamer shades of color, and great prices! It’s a brand that sets standards for indie makeup.

L’Oreal Eva’s Red Colour Riche Lipstick Review & Swatches

L'Oreal Colour Riche Lipstick Eva

L’Oreal Eva’s Red Colour Riche Lipstick is a custom shade of lipstick inspired by Eva Longoria that makes an appearance in the new L’Oreal Collection Private Pure Reds Lipstick Collection.

L’Oreal carefully curated the Pure Reds Lipstick Collection with shades of red inspired by some of their current and past celebrity and model ambassadors. Each shade was created to flatter a different skin tone, hair, and eye color which in turn enables you to purchase your perfect shade of red lipstick.

I happen to be of the mentality that you should never limit yourself when it comes to color cosmetics! If you like, wear it! I don’t let any skin tone rules dictate whether or not I should or shouldn’t wear neon pink eyeshadow should I please. I do have exceptions to that little rule though and it comes in the form of red lipstick. Red lipstick happens to be like snowflakes, no two are a like. It’s a shade I delight in and put plenty of fear in as sometimes I feel like a clown when I’m wearing it. I do feel that some reds are better on me than others so in this case I tend to navigate to warmer shades of reds versus cooler, blue based ones. Do I limit myself here? Perhaps! But for me, red lipstick is the only exception I have when it comes to color and I tend to carefully select shades that look best on my skin tone.

This isn’t to say you should ever limit yourself! But I personally like the idea of a collection of red lipsticks with models who represent a range of different skin tones which helps me considerably when selecting my perfect shade of red!
