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.

So I love makeup, even more playing with different makeup products and colors. Doesn’t every girl? I am far from a makeup artist but I think I do good picking out colors for myself. Below I share some of my makeup favorites. Check it out. There is a variety of prices from medium to low. Enjoy!

My favorite makeup product is the Nars Multiple Purpose stick (found here in orgasm). It can be used for eyes, lips, cheeks, and body. It is a little on the expensive, but is well worth it and last a long time. I use it mostly for a blush and sometimes to highlight.
The MAC matte lipstick is called Runner which is no longer available. It was a collaboration with Mac and Nasty Gal. You can find Mac lipstick here. A color that is similar is Diva.
The NARS Audacious lipstick is called Michiyo. It is a bright pink and great for spring. You can find Michiyo here
I recently discovered the Younique Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes. You combine this with your favorite mascara and it gives you long lashes to die for. I am not a consultant so I am not trying to sell you anything. I just know a good product when I see one. You can find the 3D Fiber Lashes here.
My favorite eyeliner is Maybelline Eyestudio Gel Eyeliner in Blackest Black. It comes in a pot with a brush to apply. Very easy application. This product can be found at any drugstore or here

I keep my lips conditioned with many different products but one of my favorites is Maybelline Baby Lips. This one is Strike a Rose. It can be found at most stores where Maybelline products are sold or here.

I recently discovered Cover Girl Lip Lava. This product combines lipstick pigment, gloss shine, & balm nourishment all in one. This color is Lava-nder. It can be found at drugstores or here.

Loreal has these cute little lipstick called Extraordinaire by Colour Riche that come with a applicator kinda like a lip gloss, but it covers like a lipstick. The color is rich with great shine. The two colors here are Ruby Opera and Plum Adagio. They are also available at multiple stores or you can find it here.
