First, let me say I had no idea that Milani was coming out with new lipsticks this summer. Last I heard new lipsticks would be out this Fall so it took me by surprise to see the display in Walgreens.

You Can Never Have Too Many REDS

You Can Never Have Too Many Reds

This swatch post is brought to you by the letter H and number 50. H is for “hoarding” and 50 is for the number of lipsticks I have. Eeek! Nevertheless I thought I’d do a swatch post today. Some of these I’ve had on the blog already like Milani Best Red and Red Control and others are making their first appearance like Tarte Fiery. Continue reading You Can Never Have Too Many REDS

Tackling My Beauty Shortcomings With Milani Liquid Liners

Happy Holidays! We all have beauty shortcomings. One of mine is winged liner. I love seeing it because it can up the ante on elaborate eyeshadows looks as well as subtle ones.

I hope to get on her level one day, but to do that it’s going to take some practice. So what’s a determined makeup addict to do? Buy some liquid liners.
