100% Pure Fruit Pigmented Lip Butters

... So one day I was browsing the makeup aisle, once again, and I couldn't help but pick this up. I have a real addiction to trying out lip balms and this one was no different. I especially love tinted lip balms. There's just something so alluring and promising about them that I just have to try it. In this article, I'm reviewing 100% Pure's Fruit Pigmented Lip Butter.  I was drawn to it's title "Fruit Pigmented" and thought, surely this has to be a marketing ploy. But then I sifted through the ingredients list and found that there were no artificial colors in this lip balm. And for that, I really just had to try it.

March Wishlist

Beauty Blogger, Wishlist, Red Lipstick, Hourglass, Bobbi Brown, Nars, YSL,

1.) Matte Red Lipstick. It's something I've been wanting for awhile. A little while back, when I first tried Red lipstick, I was too afraid of it's bold color. Now that I'm a little older, I'd like to pull off the sophistication of a deep matte red lipstick. I'm thinking of Bobbi Brown's Red Carpet Creamy Matte Lipstick. Or maybe Dragon Girl from Nars. Either way, I do believe it's pretty strange to be wishing for red lipstick when the holidays are over. Nevertheless, I still want my hands on something red.

NOTD: The Golden Easter

This Easter I've decided to go for something a little more cutesy but modern and simple. I used Essie's Where's My Chauffer and Zoya's Ziv (a shimmery opaque golden color) to play into Easter's cute theme. Read more to see how I did my nails!

Disney's Jasmine Nail Polish Collection

Recently, Sephora came out with Disney Princess series and I couldn't help but pick out the Jasmine Nail polish Collection. (Plus I'm such a sucker for pretty packaging.) I feel like
the color palette for this collection came from this picture.

My Skin Care Routine

I have a motto when it comes to facial skin care: Less is More. I take this from my mother, who has gorgeous youthful skin from her age of 53. I tried to follow in my Mama's footsteps and use her routine, but it didn't work out too well. It's all good though because I have found something that works.

Lorac Pro Palette Review

Lorac, Beauty Blogger, Review, Makeup, Beauty, Swatches

Lorac's PRO Palette $42.00 USD

Last year, Lorac introduced the PRO palette. It contains 8 matte shadows, located on the top row, and 8 sparkle/shimmer shadows. According to Sephora, it is:
A professional palette featuring 16 ultra-pigmented eye shadows infused with soothing botanicals and a mini Behind The Scenes Eye Primer for stay-true color that lasts.
I've had this for about 3 months now and it's definitely one of my favorite palettes. The formula is oh-my-goodness so buttery. I never knew eyeshadow could be so buttery soft and smooth. This makes it so easy to blend. It's also pretty long lasting. I've worn this to dinners, parties, clubs, and this stuff stays through all night. Here's a summary of the pro's and con's.

My Goin'-to-Work Makeup

I'm a pretty simple person when it comes to everyday work makeup. Usually I only have 5 minutes, if any at all. But if I had to just pick one, it would be my eyeliner and lip balm.

Lorac Pro Eyeliner in Black
This eyeliner is unique in that the brush has the look and feel of a Copic marker (think soft brush marker). Anyhow, I fell in love with it's precision and ease of use. This makes doing any cat eye so easy and so fast. This eyeliner doesn't really fade on me, unless I'm swimming at the beach. (Then I have another eyeliner for that.) It lasts all throughout my shift without giving me raccoon eyes. (I used to have major problems with these with any pencil eyeliner.)

Twinnings Jasmine Green Tea

Jasmine Tea is one of my favorite teas. So full of floral jasmine flavors, warm and soothing. But it can be very tricky to find a good cup of Jasmine. Some are too bitter to let the actual Jasmine come up. Some just don't taste like Jasmine tea at all. Instead, they taste like a dry green tea.

A Collection of Gold

Sometimes you get that moment where you're looking for a particular color so specific, that nothing seems to fit. Or other times, you're just in love with a color, you buy all the shades of it. That was the case for me when it comes to gold nail polish. I went through a little craze looking for the best golden nail color. In the end, I think I ended up loving them all. Each color ended up being different in their own way.

My Mini Perfume Collection Part I

I've always been a fan of all things mini (being quite mini, myself). So when it comes to perfumes, I usually go for the tiniest amount possible. It isn't that I don't like the scent; it's that I'm always afraid I won't finish an expensive full sized bottle. So when it comes to perfume, I like them tiny.

YSL Lipstick in Rose Dahlia Review

You know that feeling when you're just itching for this certain color, in this particular line... But then they don't have it everywhere you look because it's either sold out or they just don't carry it? I believe it took about four attempts before finally find this beauty. And when I finally did find it at a Sephora in the city, I got it with a $10 discount! (Totally justified the expenses.) Anyway, wow. Rose Dahlia, where do I start?

Flora Tea: Too Pretty to Drink

So this is my first time making this Flora Tea. I first saw it on youtube. Then my boyfriend got me this as an extra for V-Day. I'm sooo excited to be sharing this with you! I love tea and art so much and when you combine them, well let's just say I never knew you could combine them at first. So this is pretty exciting.

My Latest Obsession: Lancome's Color Design Lipstick

Literally "In Love" with this baby. I have to say ... I'm blown away by Lancome. Last time I tried their lipstick, I was a kid trying on my mom's GWP lipsticks. And back in the day, they were so drying I had to swipe them off my lips in five minutes. Hence, why I would never buy Lancome's Lippies now-a-days. But this one ... oh this one... really really really blew me away. I mean, this is what I expected Chanel lipstick to be like when people described it to me.
