Here goes…take that Winter!

MAC Liptensity Lipstick in Gumball – This creamy bubble gum pink lipstick is super creamy and silky with powerhouse staying power! Price: $22

Urban Decay Vice Lipstick in Big Bang – The Urban Decay Vice line has a whopping 135 shades of lipstick. I love the gunmetal case and the metallized hot pink of this one. It look good layered too. Price: $19

The Beauty Crop Lip Brulee Review

I received The Beauty Crop Lip Brulee in Butterscotch in the GlossyBox Limited Edition Mother’s Day 2018 Box called Melting For You. I am a huge fan of The Beauty Crop brand and this product is a nice addition to my collection.

What’s to love?

The Beauty Crop Lip Brulee is a super creamy high shine lip cream. The Butterscotch shade is a light pink. According to The Beauty Crop it is a “Caramel Nude shade” but it does have pink in it.

The color is more of a translucent hue that a full color coverage. It also looks amazing when I layer it on other lipstick.

It smells like butter cream frosting and feels very moisturizing on my lips. It has Jojoba and Apricot Kernel Oil. I really love this formula!

Lip Brulee has no Parabens, Mineral Oils, Phthalates and it’s Vegan, gluten free and cruelty free.

Price: $12.95

I am a huge fan of the ColourPop Lippies do I decided to bring some back for Throw Back Thursday! Being over 40 it’s sometimes hard to find liquid lipstick that doesn’t make my lips dry and I’ve found that ColourPop really does the trick to make my lip look soft and pump.

My ColourPop 5 favorite Lippies from left to right are…

ColourPop Ultra Stain Lip in Strip – Strip is a warm beige with a lighter pigment that looks so pretty on casual days.

ColourPop Ultra Stain Lip in London Fog London Fog is also a a Stain Lip product and the pinky red matte shade is so pretty for Spring.

ColourPop Ultra Matte Lip in Airplane ModeThis shade is similar to Strip in that it’s a nude but this one has a bit more pigment and is slightly rosier.

ColourPop Ultra Matte Lip in TuesdayTuesday is a bright coral red that I’ve brought back for Spring! I actually got this one and Airplane Mode in my April 2017 Glossybox but I never had a chance to use them and I want to use them up before the one year expiration date.

What’s to love?

Tisty Tosty is a bright pink Bath Bomb with whole rosebuds embedded into it. It smells like rose and jasmine. I’m not a full-on floral girl but this one smells so pretty. It also has lemon oil and orris root powder. The bottom is white and it gives off a creamy fluffy foam in the bath that makes my skin super soft.

You can see Tisty Tosty Bath Bomb in my Lush Valentine’s Day Haul!

Too Faced Glow Job Glitter Face Mask

I feel like 2018 is the year of Glitter and Too Faced has a hot product that they can’t keep in stock. The Too Faced Glow Job Glitter Peel Off Face Mask is pink and — well glittery! It’s also back in stock right now.

The pink glitter mask is infused with real gold and is supposed to exfoliate formula dull and tired skin. I love that it is a peel-off mask. The price is $42 for 1.7 oz.

I’m really thinking that I might need this one!

New Lush Pink Bath Bomb

This week I got the New Lush Pink Bath Bomb which is a mix of sweet scent of vanilla and tonka.

The outside has a swirl pattern and it’s coated with silvery glitter although the glitter is not super heavy, it’s more like a sheen. I do like the sweet smell and it turns the water a nice shade of pink.

Check out my Summer Lush Haul video which includes the New Lush Pink Bath Bomb.

NEW Julep So Plush Ultra-Hydrating Lip Gloss

I received a Julep So Plush Ultra-Hydrating Lip Gloss in my July Maven box. This is a new product and it’s really nice.

What’s to love?

The Julep So Plush Ultra-Hydrating Lip Gloss comes in 8 shades — I got Mood which is a nice light pink.

First up I love the square glass tube. It’s easy to hold and looks so pretty with the metallic top. The hourglass doe foot makes application easy too.

The “Made in the USA” formula is scent free and fairly non-sticky for lip gloss although I feel like all lip gloss has a bit of stickiness. They color is gorgeous and gave my lips a plump and pretty shine that’s perfect for Summer. You can also wear this formula over lipstick for added shine.

According to Julep “Hyaluronic Filling Spheres & Natural Oils coat and hydrate lips“.

$19.00 or $15.20 for Julep Mavens

 

The Clinique x Jonathan Adler Collection = LOVE!

It’s official! My credit card is going to go up in flames this month because of the Clinique x Jonathan Adler collection.

Jonathan Adler created the most beautiful designs that I have seen in forever just for Clinique and of course you all know that I am already a huge Clinique fan already so this just makes me so happy. They are very glamorous and Palm Beachy.

The item that I covet the most is the Clinique + Jonathan Adler: Pop Lip Colour + Primer. The Palm Beach Pop (pictured below) is so pretty and pink for Summer and the case design is just divine! “The domes of Lucite are inspired by my Globo collection—glowing and glamorous. Just like Lip Pop,” says Adler.

The Clinique + Jonathan Ader: Limited Edition Chic Colour Kit is gorgeous too! Oh the decisions to be made. I am such a huge fan of collaborations and limited-edition collections so this is going to be tough to pass up.

MAC Fruity Juicy Lipstick Review

I am so in love with the packaging of the new Summer MAC Fruity Juicy line that I decided to start with one of the lipsticks in the collection.

The packaging is so pretty with flowers and fruit on a shiny black case.

What’s to love?

The MAC Fruity Juicy Lipstick collection comes in 4 shades:

  • Calm Heat Nude (Matte)
  • Shy Girl Coral Beige (Amplified)
  • Love At First Bite Light Pink (Amplified)
  • Si, Si, Me! Dark Pink (Satin)

I chose the Si, Si, Me! shade which is a dark pink and it has beige, fuchsia and violet colors in the mix.

The lipstick itself is so smooth and satiny. It glides on very easily and stays in place without bleeding or feathering. I was worried the shade might be too dark for my but I am actually loving it.

I also love the very light vanilla scent that MAC lipstick has. It’s not overpower but so pretty. I am really loving the Fruity Juicy Collection and might just have to pick up a second shade or the Pearlmatte Face Powder! Decisions : )

I’m wearing the MAC Fruity Juicy Si, Si, Me! shade in my May Beauty Favorites video too.

Your Best Friend deLIPcious 5-Piece Lipstick Collection Review

I received a complimentary (free) deLIPcious 5-Piece Lipstick Collection from Your Best Friend. All opinions are my own.

The 5-Piece collection comes in a beautiful shiny croc-look gift box with a nice magnetic closure, when you open the case the 5 lipstick tubes are encased in a plastic tray.

The shades range from a beautiful nude neutral to a bright fuchsia pink and they taste and smell like vanilla buttercream frosting which is so delicious!

Each of the 5 shades has a flowery name and I swatched the shades on my arm. The shades from left to right are…

magnolia-licious (creamy nude)
hydrangea-licious (coral pink)
azalea-licious (fresh fuchsia)
primrosa-licious (natural soft pink)
iris-licious (brilliant burgundy)

The lipstick is very soft and I would call these a cream with a bit of a sheer finish. The pigmentation on all 5 shades is amazing with decent staying power. It did leave a little on my cup but that usually happens with the darker creams. I did not have any bleeding and could wear these shades with or without a liner. My lips did feel very hydrated too.

However my favorite part of these lipsticks is the secret compartment! The end pops off and there’s a delicious gloss in the top that you can apply over the lipstick.

Overall I am impressed with this quintuplet of Springy shades.
