I need you to understand that the sun kinda rises and falls with Francois Nars and Nars Cosmetics. Even if I don’t have it to spend I have to know what’s coming next.
I haven’t had a chance try any yet but I am sweating the Nars Velvet Lip Glide. Continue reading I Need It Now: @narsissist Velvet Lip Glide

If you’re anything like me you probably buy makeup for no reason at times. Now of course you have a “reason” but you know and I know that it’s probably more of an excuse than satisfying a true need like replacing something. Nevertheless, I want to know your makeup buying excuse.
What do you tell yourself as you place the item in your cart and a little voice is saying “How many mascaras do you really need?” or “What about the last lipstick you bought?” Mine is below.
So how do you talk yourself into buying that lipstick or blush? Leave comment below.
Today’s question is easy. What’s your favorite red lipstick(or pencil, liquid lip color, whatever)? Is it an “in your face” bright red or something subtle? How do you feel when you wear it? My current fave is Nars Cosmetics Cruella Velvet Matte Lip Pencil. Continue reading What’s Your Favorite Red Lipstick? #BuryMeMondays
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. In my excitement, I snatched up these 6(there are 8 total) with the quickness. Continue reading Gimme More Mattes: Milani Cosmetics Matte Lipsticks Photos + Swatches
You know how it goes. You’re bored and maybe you have a few bucks burning a hole in your pocket so you say “I’ll buy that lip product I saw so and so talking about.” You get lucky and there it is, beauty at a bargain in your drugstore. So you go home eager to test it out only to find out it wasn’t what you wanted or hoped for. This was me with Wet n Wild Megalast Liquid Lip Color.

It seems outrage over one of Kat Von D’s lipsticks caught the attention of some folks at Business Insider. The lipstick in question? Underage Red, a lipstick that has been out for years. Not buying the outrage behind it, Cindy Ha at SFUnzipped wrote an article and provided a slideshow about some other makeup products she thought had “racy” names. Those names like Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara or Nars Cosmetics Orgasm blush are familiar and in many a makeup lover’s bag or vanity. KVDs Underage Red may be as well. However, Orgasm or G-spot or Kinky don’t have the same connotation as “underage”. Continue reading The Big Deal To Me About Kat Von D's Underage Red

Did you watch Marvel’s Agent Carter last night? Did you see the gorgeous red lipstick Hayley Atwell was wearing? Me too. Turns out she shared what lipstick it was last month via Twitter and it’s Red Velvet by Besame Cosmetics. Obviously, I’m late but better late than never right?
Besame is a cosmetics company created in 2004 by Gabriela Hernandez. It was founded “out of a fascination with art, history, and beauty; a vintage makeup brand which honors style spirit, and sensibility of female beauty. Continue reading Agent Carter’s Hayley Atwell Wears @BesameCosmetics Lipstick
