The $2 Drugstore Black Lipstick You Need Right Now

I’m always here for a black lip. I’ve loved it since high school. However, Cover Girl and Maybelline stuck to pinks, reds, mauves, and browns back then so the only black lipstick option was a beauty supply store. But times, as they say, change and now you’re just as likely to spot a black lipstick as you are any other color.

Save and Splurge: Vampy Lip Edition

I’m a woman who likes options or at least that’s what I tell myself when I pick up something that may or may not look similar to something I already own. So today I have a few swatches of some vampy lip options for you. One is on the high side while the others are budget friendly so hopefully you won’t feel left out if vampy lips are your lane and you haven’t tried these yet.

NARS Cosmetics Velvet Matte Lip Pencil – Train Bleu ($26)

A Fall Blush Option: @NARSissist Dolce Vita

Fall is upon us. You may be dragging your hoodies (or someone else’s *winks*) from your closets so that means it’s time to transition your makeup to deeper tones. Deeper lippies are a staple, but what about blushes?

Dolce Vita Blush From Nars Cosmetics

Nars Cosmetics Dolce Vita has been in my makeup drawer forever. It’s described as a dusty rose and a great blush for fall. It’s matte so if you’re trying to stay away from sparkly or glitterly blushes then this could be for you. Unfortunately, Nars blushes are not cheap. Prices have slowly crept up on us Narsissists in the last few years, but I still think they’re great. There’s something out there for most skintones so even if Dolce Vita doesn’t tickle your fancy there’s another one out there waiting for you. And if you already have a fave Nars blush let me know in the comments. :-)

Nars Cosmetics Dolce Vita blush($30) is available at narscosmetics.com, Sephora and wherever Nars Cosmetics are sold.

Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Black Box Set

Black Box Post title

Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics is a brand you need to get to know if you haven’t already. The brand is cemented as one of my faves because of the variety and pigmentation of their Lip Tars. However, the company has some other products I haven’t tried yet and this led me to pick up their Black Box Set during their 20% off sale a few weeks ago before it disappeared forever.
