LOTD #12 Maybelline Vivids Shocking Coral

Hey all!  My MAC order is coming today.  Well, it’s at my house and I’m sitting at work.  I’m super excited.  Can’t wait to try everything out.  I have a blush obsession.  What is your favorite MAC blush?

Oops!  Didn’t know that picture was so blurry.  Maybelline Vivids Shocking Coral is my lip of the day.

It looks a lot more coral in the swatch.  It really looks pink on my lips.  I like these Vivids lipsticks.  They’re so bright and colorful.

Hope you all have a great weekend.  I’ll share my MAC haul with you soon.

Here are some quick selfies I took of my Golden Tote selections and surprises.  Sorry they are bad quality.  I hope to have a better post up this weekend.

LOTD #11 Maybelline Color Whisper Coral Ambition

I’m so excited.  I just placed an order at Macy’s for some things from MAC’s Alluring Aquatic line.  They’ll be my first real MAC purchase.  Stay tuned for swatches.

Today’s lip features Maybelline Color Whisper in Coral Ambition

It’s just a nice light coral shade.

I don’t like pale colors on my lips.  They never look as nice as they do on other people.  Oh well!

LOTD #10 Starlooks Endless

Starlooks - Endless

Starlooks – Endless

I received this Starlooks lipstick through their subscription box.  I’m a little confused by this product because the packaging calls it Infinite Lip Color and it has the Natalie Corona signature on it too.  It’s a satin and it’s in the color Endless.  If you look at Starlooks website it sure looks like the same product is now just called Longwear Lipstick.

Starlooks - Endless

Starlooks – Endless

It’s really sheer when swatched.  It seems to drag a lot too.

I do like the color though.  It is sort of a peachy shade with a gold frost.  It really reminds me of Nars Orgasm.

LOTD #9 CoverGirl LipPerfection Jumbo Gloss Balm #215 Watermelon Twist

FYI, I’m just randomly picking lip products out of my drawer.  Fate is giving me all watermelons!

Today’s lip is CoverGirl LipPerfection Jumbo Gloss Balm in #215.  #215 is Watermelon Twist.  I know this because I looked it up on CoverGirl’s website.  I don’t know if the outer packaging stated this somewhere or not.  The product doesn’t show anything other than two numbers on the end.  One doesn’t correspond to anything on the website, so I’m going by the other.  Which turns out to be Watermelon Twist.  I like names on my packaging, how about you?

It’s one of these chubby pencil products.  It’s nicely moisturizing.

CoverGirl says they are:

a balm fortified with shea and mango butters for a smooth look with a hint of color.

I have to tell you guys, this stuff had terrible staying power.  I put it on at 8:30 am.  I looked in the mirror at 9:10 am and there was no trace of it left.  None whatsoever!

LOTD #8 Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter Wild Watermelon

I’m really late on the bandwagon for the Revlon Lip Butters.

I’ve been snatching these up from the clearance section at K-mart.  I don’t know why they’re marked down, but I’ve been picking them up for $2 or $3.

This shade is Wild Watermelon.

I really enjoy the formula of these for everyday wear.  They are light, moisturizing and seem to last a relatively long time.

LOTD #6 & #7 – Mac Lustering & Mirabella Daydream

Oops!  I forgot to post my lip of the yesterday.  Can you believe that?

So yesterday I wore Lustering from Mac.  It was another of those samples that I talked about from The Body Needs.

Here’s the swatch:

It’s super pretty, but did have poor wear time.

And this is today’s lip.  It’s called Daydream by Mirabella.  It’s called a Colour Sheer.  It looks like it’s no longer available on the website, but they do have this color.

Mirabella - Daydream

Mirabella – Daydream

As the name says it is sheer.

It adds just a wash of color to your lips.  It’s very comfortable to wear and feels moisturizing.

LOTD Lip of the Day #5 Nars Orgasm Lip Gloss

It’s my birthday!  I celebrated by buying myself a little gift from Sephora.  When I placed the order online I had the option to choose a free gift and I picked this mini Nars Orgasm lip gloss.

Nars - Orgasm

Nars – Orgasm

I didn’t expect it to have it’s own little box.  It’s so cute.  Is anyone else obsessed with the boxes their product comes in?  I had to force myself to throw away the boxes my Naked 2 & 3 palettes came in recently.

Nars - Orgasm

Nars – Orgasm

I love this color.  I think the gold in it makes it perfect for summer.

Nars - Orgasm

Nars – Orgasm

I also really like the formula.  I would say it’s just the tiniest bit sticky.  Just enough that you feel like it’s going to stay on your lips but not so much that your hair sticks to it or you feel like your lips are stuck together.

Hope you all have a great day!

 

Golden Tote June 2014 Selections

Today’s the day!  It’s Golden Tote selection day.  Since it’s my birthday tomorrow my husband told me to treat myself to a large tote this month.

If you don’t know what Golden Tote is it’s kind of like a clothing subscription service, but you can choose whether or not you want to purchase each month.  You pick from either a small tote (where you select one item you like and receive 2-3 surprise items) or a large tote (where you select 2 items and receive 5-7).  You set up a profile and pick from a selection of photos which suit your style best and also choose a clothing store that you are most likely to shop from.  Supposedly this is how they pick your surprise items.  You can also add notes about items or colors that you absolutely do not want.  When you place your order there is a box to add any other comments.  I mentioned that I love rompers and dresses in my comment box.  In the past I hadn’t entered anything.  I can’t wait until my tote comes to see if the comment made any difference.  So, back to the tote.  The sale usually starts the first Monday of the month and totes are supposed to ship by the end of the following week.  My tote usually arrives sometime after the 20th.  I’m hoping to have mine before I go on vacation at the end of the month.  If this sounds like something that would interest you, check them out (Disclaimer:  That is a referral link, I will get credit if you sign up through it.)

I did end up ordering the larger tote this month and these were my item choices:

Puella Chevron Midi Dress

Venice Vacation Dress

I did add on an item from their boutique.  I purchased this top:

Cotton Crochet Top

 

Now the waiting begins!

Lip of the Day LOTD #4 ModelCo Satin Lip Couture Luella

 

 

ModelCo Satin Lip Couture - Luella

ModelCo Satin Lip Couture – Luella

This is ModelCo’s Satin Lip Couture in Luella.  I got this in a Lip Factory box a while back.  It doesn’t look like it’s available anymore as I can’t find this line on ModelCo’s website.  They do however have a line named Lip Couture (without the satin) that states it is a high shine lipstick.  I think it may be similar.  I like that the packaging has the little mirror build in!

ModelCo Satin Lip Couture - Luella

ModelCo Satin Lip Couture – Luella

The swatch looks pretty dark, but I feel that it sheers out when applied to the lips.  This color is more of what I think of as a mauve.

ModelCo Satin Lip Couture - Luella

ModelCo Satin Lip Couture – Luella

It’s not exactly a very summery color, but it’s one I gravitate towards because it has the same undertones as my natural lip color.

In case you’re wondering I’m wearing Rimmel Scandaleyes Retro Glam Mascara in the above picture.  When I uploaded it I was like, “Holy lashes!”  LOL
