Buxom Lips In Monte Carlo

Buxom Buxom Big & Healthy Lip Stick Monte Carlo

Buxom Big & Healthy Lipstick

Lately I've been on a lip kick and all I want to buy is lip color. It occured to me that I have nudes, light pinks, coral, reds, plums, burgundy colors but that I don't have a nice vivid pink.  Well believe it or not it took me forever to find a pink that I thought wold suit me. The easy part would've been to go into a Mac store and pick something up but I'm a Sephora addict and I do love racking up those points... Luckily, I had my friend with me and she recommended the new Buxom Big & Healthy Lipstick.  I got the color Monte Carlo and its so pretty!! Not only that its a nice vivid pink that doesnt take you over the top. It also has amazing staying power. Overall, I'm pretty impressed. I've been pairing my Monte Carlo with Smashbox's Candy lipgloss! I love it. I think I'm going to go back and get some more colors. :)

My favorite Youtube Gurus

They are in no particular order but my favorite make up youtube gurus are:

KandeeJohnson- She's super talented and is an actual make up artist!! She works on movies and her work is amazing. She has a lovely personality too. I love her because she does looks that anyone can do and then she still brings out the big guns with makeup looks inspired by characters in movies. Great guru!
Pixiwoo- These 2 sisters, Nic and Sam, are also professional make up artist that work more in the fashion industry. They do runway and fashion ads or shoots.  Their work is beautiful. They are both a delight to watch and are very thorough about what they do. Its a great free education.
MakeupbyTiffanyD- She is a Southern Belle!! I'm from the South so I just fell in love with her personality. I also really enjoy her videos because she caters to looks for every day make up. Since I dont really go to places that require wild make up; she gives me good inspiration to change up my everyday make up.
Bubzbeauty- She's so cute!! She's from Ireland and is super smart. I like watching her videos for tips! She''s very informative and she has a great sense of humor. She's a great source of info.
Panacea81- love love love her personality. She's so humble and funny. Her looks are usually based off of celebrities and she does a good job of mimicking their looks. It's very  helpful to watch her videos because she uses a wide variety of brands and she takes you step by step on how to apply make up.  I love it.

Check these ladies out on Youtube!!

  1. Hoolah Bronzer by Benefit- very natural looking bronzer. Its very mid toned so it is versatile for any skin color. It also has a semi-matte finish so its perfect for contour.
  2. Blacktrack Fluidline by Mac- I usually use Coastal Scents for gel liner but I will say macs formula seems a bit smoother to work with and I'm very happy with it. I use it every day!
  3. Sin Eyeshadow by Urban Decay- this is my  new go to color. Its sooo pretty. Its a very light pink champagny frost color. I love it alone but I especially love it on the inner corners of the eyes. So pretty. 
  4. Rogue Allure Lacque in Dragon by Chanel- The perfect red lips!! Its beautiful. I actually found out about this color on Temptalia and I fell in love. It really is the perfect red. Its gorgeous. I get tons of compliments when I wear it. It applies like a lipgloss but dries like a lipstick. So beautiful.
  5. Multigrain Pita Chips by Stacy's- They taste wonferful!! I'm addicted.
  6. Hot Rollers by Conair- I purchased these exactly a month ago and I will say its so easy to use and quick. They take 85 seconds to warm up and it really smoothes your hair out. The curl that it gives is very Kardashianesque!! Its put my straightener on vacation for now!

The Saturdays!

The Saturdays

They are unlike most of the people that I've mentioned on here but what can I say I'm a sucker for a good girl group. They are natives to the UK and are pretty fun. Their lead singer has a great strong voice and they seem to posses the ingredients for a classic pop group!  I hope that they will actually try to expand to the U.S. but who knows? Check out their stuff!! They are on the verge of releasing a new album titled "Headlines" and the single "Missing You" is linked below...definitely check the girls out! The video after is for "Ego" that is acutally how I discovered them. I love that song!! Enjoy!

Sorry... I've been away!

I was hoping that I would be able to dedicate more time for my blog but unfortunately I've been very lazy and I haven't been very inspired either. Not to mention, I still don't have a camera but that is okay. I am back with a plan!! There should be quite a few more post after this one... along with some changes.

  • There will be another part of my site that is a forum. This forum is exclusively about retail shopping experiences. lol 
  • Favorite items of the month will still continue however I think I will be including more trends or looks with make up rather then make up itself.
