Hey everyone! For my prom last March, I bought this gorgeous lip gloss at Sephora ($26) to match my hot pink BCBG dress. Lancome advertised this gloss as a medium coverage gloss and I agree. It seems a bit sheer at first which is frustrating because the color looks so phenomenal in the tube, but with a few more coats you can build it up pretty well. It is not a sticky, heavy feeling gloss at all which I love, and it has a wonderful floral perfume fragrance. What's most interesting about this gloss though is the applicator. It's a tear drop-shaped foam applicator which I find picks up the product well but isn't necessarily better than a standard applicator. It actually bends very easily on the wand, which makes me feel like it's going to fall off haha, and personally I like firmer brush applicators when I can find them. But overall, the color is so fun and sparkly, while the medium coverage makes it more wearable so I loveee this gloss! This gloss comes in 14 shades. 

Thanks for reading :)

Jemma Kidd I-Tech Liquid Liner in Covert

Hey everyone! I've had Jemma Kidd's liquid liner in Covert ($16 at Target with a few other amazing colors) for quite sometime now, but seeing as how brighter colors are so much fun for summer I've been using it as a pop of color with my regular black eyeliner and I really love it! I also decided to post it because I find it similar to a recently very popular product, Lancome's Artliner in Beach Gem. I heard very often that people find it hard to find well pigmented glitter liners and this one is AMAZING!

Covert is a ridiculously long lasting, pigmented, vibrant, teal liquid liner that so reminds me of summer and the beach. It looks great with my green eyes, due to its green reflects, but I think it would look equally stunning in contrast with brown eyes or using the teal tones to enhance blue eyes.  One thing to note though, the brush is very thin and precise which is great, but it picks up a lot of product and is also a bit flimsy so for beginners with liquid liner it may be a bit difficult to use. As well, this is so long lasting (which makes it great for swimming and the beach) but it is pretty difficult to remove, especially if it gets on your lashes.

All things aside, look how beautiful it is!

I couldn't resist making a little design :) This pic came out a bit blurry, but the true effect is how it looks in the tube!

Revlon Blase Apricot Lipstick

I picked this up at the drugstore a few weeks ago in an attempt to find an inexpensive (it's $8.99) option to follow the coral/orange trend for this summer. I love the new vintage-inspired packaging and I think the Moon Drops name for the collection is pretty interesting lol.  It is a coral/orange/pink shade that really brightens up my face. The formula leaves a very pigmented, creamy finish and does tend to show the lines in my lips but just slightly. I apply this lightly because it has an unusual nude undertone that washes me out a bit if I put on too much, but otherwise I think it's such a fun, unique, and bright color that everyone should try!
