Favorite YSL Lip Products

IMG_2240Lip products are some of my favorite makeup items, especially from YSL, so I thought I would share them with you today.

There are many high end makeup products that I just don’t think are worth the money, but I really think YSL makes amazing lip products (and mascaras!) and really are worth the high price tag. Their packaging is so beautiful and luxurious, and the products also feel that way on the lips.  All of these products make my lips feel so soft and hydrated, and really feel unlike any other lip products I’ve ever tried.

Rouge Volupte is a very creamy, full color lipstick. It feels like silk on your lips!

Rouge Volupte Shine is a medium coverage lipstick that gives a good amount of color, but feels very moisturizing like a lip balm.

Volupte Tint-In-Balm is a sheer coverage color that is more like a tinted lip balm. I love this on days where I’m only wearing light makeup, or even no makeup days.

Volupte Tint-In-Oil is a sheer coverage lip oil. This is probably my favorite out of all four. I normally don’t wear lip gloss because I don’t like the feel of it, but this is an oil that completely moisturizes your lips and is not sticky at all. I love wearing this on light makeup days, especially in the spring and summer. The swatch looks like it might not show up with any color, but on the lips you can definitely see color, although it is sheer.

Have you tried any YSL lip products?  What is your favorite luxury lip product? I’d love to know!

Black Fringe Scarf and Booties

img_4114In a post from last week I shared one of my favorite fringe scarves. Here I’m wearing it in black. I love these and get so much wear out of them in the fall and winter. I’ve also featured these booties in tan many times. Since I wear them so much and they’re so affordable, I decided it was time to buy them in another color. Both of these pieces are so affordable and versatile, so I highly recommend them!

Pale Pink Nails

IMG_8368

Anyone whose been on the hunt for the perfect pale pink nail polish knows how hard it is to to find one that’s the perfect color and also applies completely opaque. I was on the hunt for so long until I discovered this beauty by Nails INC in collaboration with Victoria Beckham. It is in the color Bamboo White, which is described as a white nude cream, but I think it definitely has a bit of pink in it.

When I first spotted this nail polish on Sephora’s website, I’ll admit, I was drawn to it only because of my obsession with VB. With my bad luck in the past with my perfect pale pink polish search, I decided not to buy it and thought the price was ridiculous anyway.

A couple months later I saw a picture of someone wearing it and it just looked perfect!  The perfect color, the perfect opacity, it was just perfect!

So I decided to fork over the $25 for the polish, and I have to say it was totally worth it!  It’s the exact color I had been searching for and it’s mostly opaque in one coat. With two coats it is completely opaque and applies beautifully without any streaking. I think the shape of the brush really helps in application as well.  The best part about it is that, for me, it stays on for a whole week without chipping!  I really hope they come out with more shades because currently it’s only available in two shades. This is by far the best nail polish I’ve ever used. If you’ve been on the fence about it, I totally recommend it!

Have you tried any Nails Inc polishes?  What was your experience?

Favorite Beauty Products of the Moment

IMG_7631

This is a little bit of a different kind of post for me.  Today I thought it would be fun to share the beauty products that I’ve been loving lately.  Here are my top 5 of the moment:

Too Faced Natural Matte eyeshadow palette

IMG_7635IMG_7638

This palette is a collection of 9 neutral toned matte shadows.  Neutral colored shadows are my favorite so that’s what really caught my attention.  Many brands have been putting out all matte palettes lately, but I really love every single color in this one.   They are buttery smooth and blend amazingly.  There is a good range of light to deeper colors, and cool and warm, which really makes it easy to get complete looks only using this one palette.  I originally bought this because I thought it would be great for traveling since its so compact.  I like to pack this and one single shimmery shadow, or even just use my highlight if I want to add shimmer.  And if it can get even better, I think the packaging is so cute!  Buy it here!

NYX Color Correcting Powder in Banana

IMG_7642

I’ve been on the hunt for a good concealer setting powder for under my eyes for a while now.  I really like using yellow powders to help brighten, but I haven’t found one I love until now.  This one from NYX works so well to keep my concealer from creasing and brightening under my eyes, way better than even higher end powders like Anastasia’s.  The only thing I do not like about this is that’s a loose powder, but that’s just preference.  I believe there is a pressed powder version, so I’ll probably give that a try once this runs out.  Buy it here!

ColourPop Super Shock Shadow in Amaze

IMG_7639

If you haven’t tried ColourPop, you are seriously missing out!  The texture of their eye shadows is amazing.  They have a very unique bouncy texture that almost feels wet, but when you apply it to your eyes its like a powder.  They have tons of shades to choose from, and the best part is that they’re only $5!  I’ve been loving the color Amaze which is a rose gold with mulit-colored glitter in a metallic finish.  Buy it here!

ColourPop Lippie Stix

IMG_7640

Another amazing ColourPop product is their Lippie Stix.  These lipsticks are great quality and again, are only $5!  They have an extensive array of colors and finishes, and they all have coordinating lip pencils that match.  I honestly couldn’t pick a favorite color because I’ve been loving all of the ones I have.  Pictured here is the color Tootsi, a matte cool toned greige.  The formulas are very comfortable on the lips, even the matte shades don’t feel drying.  Buy it here!

Velour Lashes in CarliLash

IMG_7647IMG_7650

I love lashes for a fun night out to amp up my look.  With my hooded lids, its sometimes hard to find false lashes that don’t overwhelm my eyes and look too long.  These are my favorite lashes I’ve ever used!  They are definitely long, but not too long, and have just the right amount of volume.  I love the look of them with clusters of lashes that flare out.  These are on the pricey side, but they can be used an average of 25 times, or even more if they’re taken care of.  Buy it here!

Hope you enjoyed!  What are some of your favorite beauty products?
