“Am I in love with you? Or am I in looooove with the feeling?” 🎶

With Halsey’s limited-edition MAC lipstick, it’s both! The lyrics above are in reference to her song collab with Justin Bieber, by the way.

 

Are you a die-hard Halsey fan, or has she not made her way onto your radar yet? If you don’t know much about her, please read this amazing Rolling Stones interview . If you don’t have that kind of time to dedicate, just know that Halsey is a beautiful, bold, unique young artist that is currently blazing her way through the often cookie-cutter music scene.

 

Sounds like a perfect partner for MAC, right? This Halsey collaboration came about as part of a larger collection called Future Forward, which contained 4 pieces designed by influential women considered to be redefining the music industry. Other collaborators were Lion Babe, Tinashe, and Dej Loaf (who I LOVE, but I wasn’t crazy about her contribution, which was a nude gloss).

Happy National Lipstick Day, loves! Little makes me happier than a perfect lippie. A swipe of color can make you feel confident, pulled together, and elevate a look like no other accessory can!

 

Today, let’s discuss Gerard Cosmetics’ lipstick in London Fog. I’ve been holding on to this baby for quite awhile! If you remember (or just want a refresher), I reviewed Gerard’s Hydra-Matte Liquid Lipstick awhile back, and had nothing but good to say about it. Unfortunately, that’s not quite the case with London Fog, but it does have both pros and cons to consider before purchase:

Good evening guys!

 

Bold lip colors, like Ciate London’s Lip Velvet in Envy (show above), are not for everyone. I mean, anybody CAN wear them, but not everyone feels confident in out-of-the-box hues like this one. For those of us who love a pop of color though, unique shades really get us hype!

Just a Drop of Color

So, as I mentioned in my last post, I’m doing a mini-series centered around color correcting, and tonight I want to cast the spotlight on Algenist’s miraculous Reveal Color Correcting Drops!

 

Now, I want to put a disclaimer here: the cute mini bottles you see above are not available for purchase from Sephora, but are available for $20 each (or $65 for the set) directly from Algenist’s website. However, each can be purchased at Sephora individually in it’s full-size form, which retails at $38 for .5 oz.

 

Since you’ve got the specifics, lets talk about Algenist as a brand: They’re first and foremost a skincare brand that hails from San Francisco, whose products are formulated using microalgae for advanced anti-aging. So, how did that translate into color correcting?

Color Correction That’s Just Peachy!

Hey friends!

 

I’ve been thinking about doing a color correcting series since all 2.5 million Spring launches of them, but haven’t yet gotten around to it. What better time than the present?!

 

We’ll start out with one of my faves as of late, which is the LancĂ´me Miracle CC Cushion in 03 Pinky Peach. This color is made to brighten under eye darkness and hyperpigmentation- and boy does it deliver!

Like, Literally, So Cute!

Good evening friends!

 

Kylie Cosmetics (do we talk about anything else here?) recently launched four new lipgloss shades- coordinating colors for her matte lip kits in Exposed, Posie K, Candy K, and Koko K. Before those start circulating around the web, I thought it was time to talk about her original lipgloss launch!

Blushing Bride

Hey, readers! It’s been too long, and you deserve an update. If you’ve been reading for awhile, you may know that I was married on May 28th this year! It’s been a great month and a half, but I’ve been seriously slacking in the blogging department. After 2 weeks away from home for the wedding and honeymoon, then a trip to New Mexico a couple weeks later, I’m finally starting to feel settled back into normal life.

 

Rest assured, there is so much goodness on the way! I have a stockpile of things to show you- there is plenty of beauty on the horizon. My next few posts will feature some limited-edition items that may no longer be available for purchase, but at the very least will be a healthy dose of makeup porn!

 

Thank you for your patience and loyalty! Lovely by LeAnn is back with a vengeance ❤️
