Makeup Monday: Unboxing with No7 Beauty

                       Shop: Lip Gloss (one, two) | Primer | Serum | Mascara | Eyeshadow | YouTube 

Happy Makeup Monday! Today I am partnering with No7 beauty to bring you Fall skincare and Fall makeup colors in their new collection.

No7’s Youthful Vitamin C Fresh Radiance Essence will give you brighter, healthier, and more radiant skin within two weeks. Who doesn’t want more Youthful skin? As we age our skin loses its radiant glow. The more stress we have in our life the more dull and dry our skin seems to be, so we need to combat this with Vitamin C. I think No7 Beauty has perfected that in this product and your skin will definitely show the difference.

A beauty tip I live by is that I always make sure I use a primer before I apply makeup to my skin. This adds the perfect base between your skin and your makeup, which allows it to adhere to your skin and last all day. It leaves your makeup looking flawless and healthier.

No7 Beauty has some awesome makeup products for Fall. Their Lash Impact Ultra gives you the volume of false lashes without the false lashes. I think that is something we can all get behind. Also No7’s High Shine Lip Gloss looks great by itself or over your favorite lipstick, which can give your lips the extra shine it needs. I personally love their Trio Eyeshadow Palettes because it is all you need to make your eyes look dramatic and great for travel too.

Makeup Monday: Summer Lipstick

                                                One | Two  (color Heroine)| Three | Four 

Can you believe it is the first day of Summer? Me either! I think summer is for bright lipstick, maxi dresses and cocktails on the patio. Who is with me?

Since purple is my favorite color, you know I had to wear it in a lipstick. This lip color can be found here (color heroine) Some purple or plum colors can be too deep or over powering so I try to stick with the lighter shades for summertime. Some I would suggest are this one here, this one and I really like this one. Purple lips are a great way to add color to your outfit.

Bright pink is excellent for summer. If you are trying to make a bold statement go for a bold pink, like the one above. Find the exact color here. Another favorite that I have in my pink collection that stays on great is this one. For a pink that will not break the bank try this one here. Having at least one bright pink in your lipstick bag is a must.

I personally think red is good in any season. It usually makes an outfit pop and your skin look instantly brighter and younger. Great for date night or if you are trying to be a little sexy. Find this exact shade here. Other reds I love are this one and this one. What is your perfect red? 

Where are all my girls who love a good nude lip? Nudes are great for daytime and workwear. Find this color here. I think the hardest thing about wearing a nude is that you have to get the right shades for your skin tone. For medium brown skin tones I suggest this one and this one. What nude works best for your complexion?

Check out all my favorite summer lip shades below and suggest some new ones for me to try.


Makeup Monday

Happy Monday all. I hope you had a great weekend. I sure did. I am starting a new series on my blog today that I am titling “Makeup Monday”. I plan to try out and write a review on a makeup product twice a month on Mondays.  So let me know any makeup products that you would like me to review in the comment box below. The product that I chose to test out this week is the L’oreal Paris Colour Riche Collection Exclusive Lip color to get ready for fall. Have you tried these yet? If not you should.

Not only are they affordable, under $9 to be exact, they go on smooth and keep your lips hydrated. The matte colors stay on for hours, so no need to reapply every time you take a sip of that coffee. This collection comes in 6 nude color selections and 6 red color selections. The 6 nudes shades were carefully categorized to fit individuals skin tones, so you can choose from Jennifer’s Nude  (for medium-olive skin tones), Freida’s Nude  (for honey skin tones), Doutzen’s Nude  (for fair-light skin tones), Liya’s Nude  (for deeper skin tones), Julianne’s Nudes , and Eva’s Nude  (for light-medium skin tones). This helps to pick out your perfect shade of nude.  Since I have a medium to dark skin tone I selected Liya’s Nude. The color worked great for my skin complexion  (see below). It was just enough lip color to tell you had on lipstick but not over the top. Hence the name nude.  So in my case I would say they nailed it. This color is perfect for a daytime look. There are also 6 different shades of red in this collection. They are not specific to skin tone but you are sure to find your perfect red in one of these bold matte colors. You can find the six shades here. I chose to try Blake’s Red. I loved it. Not only did it last most of the day it did fade or dry my lips out. This is always a positive in my book. These L’oreal Paris Colour Riche Collection Exclusive Lip Colors are definitely a great drugstore pick and worth the money. You can find these lip sticks at your local Walgreen’s or here. What is your favorite fall lip color? I linked a couple of the L’oreal lip colors below. Hope you enjoy.
