maybelline color sensational vivids lipsticks

Who says you can’t wear bold lipsticks through the whole year? Maybelline Color Sensational┬áVivid’s are amazing. Bold pops of color with the feel of a balm. I’ve been running these colors on repeat.

They look a little frightening in the tube because the colors are intense but they actually wear really nicely. Don’t get me wrong – they are intense but a wearable intense. They can be a little slippery so pair with a nude liner to help them stay in place throughout the day.

Have you tried the vivids line? Now is a good time to test two colors out – Ulta is offering buy 1 get 1 50% off! (You can check it out here.)


Beauty Review: Revlon Lip Butters

I was a little skeptical of these because I always have commitment issues with lipstick color. I always have it in mind that I like lipstick, but I actually don’t think that I do. I like it on others, but I just can’t commit to it.

Revlon Lip Butters sound like they might be more of a lip balm, but I assure you they possess the vivid color of a good lipstick. Creamy and not chalky, and full vibrant color, these add moisture of a balm with the color of our (trendy) grandmothers lipsticks. I also love that these colors aren’t very matte, they definitely have a slight shine to them.

I have been testing a few of these out and have had a ton of compliments from them. Even someone at the airport said she loved the color.

These are the ones that I’ve been trying out so far! I hate selfies… but how else can I get a picture of them on the go? So excuse my 17 year old girl selflies…the colors are tutti fruit, wild watermelon and sorbet.

Has anyone else tried these? What do you think?


Beauty Steal: Color Whisper

I have been watching a ton of Pretty Shiny Sparkly drugstore hauls and beauty reviews. She kept raving about a few different lipsticks so I knew I wanted to try them!

The first one I tried did not disappoint! Color Whisper from Mabelline. I tried it in Lust for Blush- its a dusty pink and I wasn’t sure how it would work or if it would wash me out. I could not be more happy with the results- it looks amazing and feels amazing!

It smoothes on rich, creamy but almost sheer. You can easily build on the color but its not overwhelming or chalky like a lot of cheap lipsticks are. I was immediatley sold. It felt like butter and felt more nourishing than my go-to burts bees.

I will be investing in several more- you can see all the shades here at Target!
