Lipstick Love

Three new colors I pick up these last few weeks. Im really trying to branch out from my regular nude lip gloss look and get into some actual lipsticks. 

First one is the most bold I have ever gone. Well I take that back I'm pretty sure back in my dance days when I was a child Im sure during recitals I wore a color as red as this. The other two are my normal pink shades I love but with out the lip gloss shine. 

Starting from the the left 
Maybelline 645 Red Revival
Maybelline 135 Make Me Pink
Rimmel 006 Pink Blush

Cant wait to put some looks together using these colors (especially the red) for you guys in future post.

Can you ever have enough?


I mean really I have way to many. These are the new ones that I have pick up or got as samples. Just wanted to share my thoughts on them with you guys.

Rimmel Scandaleyes volume Flash Mascara
The brush is a traditional one on the larger side. The formula is on the dryer side. And yes it does give lots of volume with out flaky off later.

Maybelline The Colossal Volume Express "cat eyes"
Very very tiny curved brush and a very wet formulation. Didn't really do much for my lashes at all. Certainly no "Cat Eye".

Covergirl Lash Blast Luxe Mega Volume
Rubber brush on the larger size just like all the other Lash Blast mascara's. Also a dryer formulation. But there are sparkles in this mascara, its interesting to say the least. I don't see them on my lashes really but on the brush they are there. Also gives lots of volume.

Smash Box Full Exposure
Larger Traditional Brush with a really dry formulation. Wasn't to impressed with this mascara at all. Couldnt even notice a change in my lashes even with putting a few coats on my lashes.

Clinque High Impacted Mascara
Medium sized brush, wet formula. Do like this even with it having a wet formula. Its my every day mascara just enough volume and separation  The scent however is a bit strong(no other mascara listed has a scent)./

I havent been to any haunted things in many years and now that I have a son who is to young to be scared (even though I cant wait to take him to one). We did go to a normal Corn Maze this year for ths first time with him, He loved it so much.

Random Thursdays

 Its been a few, okay many weeks since I have done this link up, but Hubby was home. He always throws my schedule off lol. But on to the topic, Things I love about fall. This list could be long this year. I have never loved fall but after that killer of a summer I was ready for some cooler weather and just a change of pace.

Wreaths not really a fall thing but look at those colors :) I love the change of colors this time of year always have. The reds and golds and just deeper shades are so pretty and warming against the cold air. 

Halloween one of my favorite holiday. A day to be something else a day to eat candy. Whats not to love? 

Flannel and boots!!!!!!! Oh and big scarves and sweaters. I love having the ability to layer again. Don't get me wrong I love a tank shorts and flip flops to but being able to layer just makes an outfit for me.

Oh and Hot drinks, any kind really Tea Coco Coffee. Just as long as its HOT!!!!!!!!

This or That Beauty Blog Tag

Saw this tag on Makeup Obsessed Mom's blog and I just had to do it :) Just a few questions and answers  How fun ?! I also tag everyone who reads my blog to go ahead and do so too.

1. Blush or Bronzer?

 Both, I really love to contour my cheeks so a bronzer is a must but at the same time I also love a good rosy cheek too. I do tend to use more bronzer in the summer months then int he winter.

2. Lipgloss or Lipstick?

Lipgloss is always in my purse and on my lips. I do own lipsticks but I find myself really use lipgloss more often. 

3.Matte or Sparkle Eye Shadow?

I tend to lean more towards the sparkle or sheen, an all matte eye on my just feels and looks so flat.

4. Gel, Liquid, Cream or Pencil Eyeliner?

Pencil and only because I have the most experience with it and feel the most comfortable  I do have some gel liner and I have been practicing. Really want to get that winged out look perfected.

5. Foundation or Concealer?

Depends if its summer then I use more concealer and less foundation it gets so hot here in Atlanta I just like to spot treat. In the winter Foundation all the way 

6. Liquid or Powder Foundation?

Liquid in fact I just got a new one Clinque Even Better Foundation and I'm in love with it. I have tried the powders and they just show of my dry patches more.

7. Neutral or Statement eyes?

Being a Mom I tend to do a more neutral eye don't need to be scaring the other parents at Preschool drop off lol.

8. Pressed or Loose Eye Shadow?

Pressed and only because I don't own any loose but I would love to own some. 

9. Brushes, Sponges or Fingers?

Brushes I feel the most confident with my makeup application when I use my brushes

Sorry for the lack of  pictures this blog.
Next up on the blog Makeup to go with the Date Night outfit
