Birds of a Feather 4: Coral and Orange Lipstick Swatches

Time for another Birds of a Feather! This time it’s all my coral/orange toned lipsticks. I don’t have as many in this category as I have reds, so this was a nice un-daunting Monday post 🙂

July Empties (because somehow it is August already!?)

Seriously how is it August 1 already? Time really has flown this month! Anyone else already anticipating October (my fave month) and fall weather? At this point it seems so close! Anyways, today I have all the products I emptied this past month!

Spring Empties!

Okay so I’ve been meaning to do an empty products post for…. an embarrassingly long time. I decided just to lump a bunch of months together and call it Spring because I can’t remember exactly when I started collecting my empties! Like most people, I burn through skincare products way faster than makeup, so this post is mostly skincare things 🙂

quick EOTD post~!

HALLELUJAH I have internet again! This week has been so weird/awful with the lack of internet. Going to a local coffee shop to get an internet fix is just not the same as being able to hang out in my own house with my good friend Netflix 😉

Anyways, posts will go back to regular soon. For now, here’s a quick eye-of-the-day I did! Lately I’ve been super obsessed with eyeliner (you’ll see my Ulta haul soon) and I’ve been playing around with different fun combos of colors. Here’s an eye look I did with an old Boots No7 Stay Perfect  liquid liner in “Sapphire” and Maybelline Color Tattoo in #65 “Gold Rush”.
(I’m wearing nothing but eyeliner and mascara, so forgive the bareface! Also the mascara is L’Oreal Butterfly Intenza which I hate/love because it’s SCENTED. WHY IS MASCARA SCENTED?? It irritates my eyes so much but it does look nice.)


gold & blue, whoo hoo!


That’s it for now! Just a fun little EOTD 😉

til later, lovlies~

HOT HOT HOT! – Orange, Coral, Neon Red Lipstick Swatches!

OH MY GOSH, it was FINALLY warm today and I could not be happier! Winter seems to be finally over and the sun is out again, hence my sudden urge to wear bright lipsticks. As much as I love fall weather and my red and burgundies, sometimes a little fiery lipstick is a perfect pairing to bright sunshine! Last spring I went out and bought a bajillion different oranges and corals hoping to find The One, and now its spring again and I still haven’t found a coral that doesn’t look crazy. Either I’m too used to how I look in reds, or my skin tone just hates coral! Anyways, below you’ll find a selection of some oranges, corals, and orange-reds that I own 🙂
