Lancome L’Absolu Creme de Brilliance you turned out exactly the way I was hoping Korres Raspberry Antioxidant Liquid Lipstick would! You’re not really sure if you want to be a lipstick or a lipgloss but I’m not minding in the least as I love how you slick color on my lips, leaving behind a pigmented, glossy pout that looks part lippie, part glossy! Oh how your multitasking ways slay me!
I’m created the Back to School Beauty Budget Picks for College students and Back to Schooler’s in need of some inexpensive beauty finds that won’t break their bank. This series is all about affordable skincare, cosmetic, and beauty bits and bobs for those heading back to school in the next few weeks!
Today’s pick, NYX Liquid Crystal Liner!
Ahh moisture. Dry skin folks are constantly seeking more, more, more. More hydration, more moisture, anything to get our tight, itchy skin back in order.
My own skin is performing at a combo rate at the moment but as the cooler weather approaches, dry skin havoc is right around my skincare corner.
Savior could possibly come in the form of Cyber Colors Instant Moisture Boost Sparkling Mask.
Marzipan a strange and unusual cake topper in some areas of the world and in others, an art form….
Seriously, have you seen what people create using marzipan? It’s down right strange.
Within the US I don’t think we embrace marzipan as fully as the rest of the world does. We commonly use it to decorate the tops of cakes on occasion but it’s not something we pop into our mouth for the sake of enjoying it. Some might compare it to Turkish Delight but I wouldn’t go so far as I think it’s positively a gross texture and not nearly as delightful as Turkish Delight.
Mind you my dislike of marzipan extends to the actual candy but not to the wonderful things that Lush Cosmetics creates using its scent.
Once a year, during the Holiday season, Lush releases a wonderful soap entitled Snowcake. Some of you are already obsessed with said soap while others may recognize the name from my past obsessive musings….It is truly a gift from the gods above. Snowcake has a creamy almond scent that Lush dubs as the scent of marzipan. If marzipan smelled nearly this great, I’d be eating it for breakfast, lunch, and dinner yo.
Ahhh the MLBB experience.
What’s MLBB you might ask? Why that would be the my lips but better lipstick or gloss you might own. The one you reach for daily because it enhances your natural lip color but doesn’t overpower it. The one that makes you look like you have nothing at all on but still looks sexy and pouty none the less.
I think lip junkies would agree that the my lips but better experience rarely comes around but when it does, it’s embraced to the max and in some cases you’ll find yourself stockpiling the product you use to create that perfect, bare, nude lip look.
I’ve only had one MLBB experience myself and that would be with Urban Decay Naked Lipstick. I can’t say I have a ton of glosses or lipsticks in my stash that achieve this incredible look but I surely wish I did and I’m always hunting around to see if I can find another product that will achieve the result.
I am happy to say that Urban Decay Lipstick in Indecent has made it’s way into my stash and it’s almost as lovely as Naked in some ways….
