Hi ya Gorgeous!Today is more than Saturday or Caturday, it’s National Lipstick Day!
Did you know that lipstick was not rationed during the war? The Queen of England had a shade made just for her in a red that matched her robes and sash, it’s called Balmoral after her childhood home in Scotland.
I am a lipgloss lover, though today, we celebrate lipstick. I have some beautiful samples to share with you from several brands. I love that lipstick can elevate a low mood as well as be the perfect accessory to a power suit or party dress!
In this photo from left to right is the Black Opal lip crayon with a super rich matte color. Catrice lipstick is a popular European brand and the coverage is full with a tone of color and moisture. Next is Pacifica, one of the best vegan beauty brands out there!
The Pacifica liquid mineral lipstick is smooth and well wearing on the lip. I have two colors from Essence Cosmetics in their matt matt matt line, there is a nude beige tone and then a warm mauve tone – these lipsticks are matte and buttery on the mouth – not drying at all! In the photo, the next lip stain from Alima Pure is new to me and I’m in love with this soft tint with lots of moisture! It’s perfect for gals going back to school!
Finally in the photo you see the two Lorac Alter Ego lip stains in Activist and Secret Agent. I’m a fan of this brand, and these lip stains pack a powerful long wearing tint that is also moisturizing that doesn’t build up on the mouth.
Finally, how do you apply your lipstick? Sure, it’s easy to bullet it on but if you take the extra step of applying with a precision lip brush, like this one from Royal Langnickel in the Moda Metallics collection you will have a longer lasting application with super precise detail to the cupid bows and corners of the mouth.
You should try one and be sure and get a couple, one for your home, purse and work/school space!
Final thought, remember that today, MAC Cosmetics is giving away a free lipstick! Go get one!
Remember: you are beautiful!

Hi ya GorgeousHow’s your Monday now? Or should I say, how’s your summer? Here in Arizona, the summer is in full broil and school for the cub starts back in 3 short weeks …or are they short? He is definitely ready to go back and see his friends which brings to mind the question that year round school, with a 2 week break in between semesters would do just fine. On to the makeup!
I recently received some very lovely samples from LORAC of their color story collection for the reboot of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast.
Something to know going forward, I am ride or die for the original
1990’s animated version and none to thrilled about another warmed over
version of an Oscar winning trophy of a film. In short, I have not seen the film yet, and when it arrives on Netflix, I will let you know my thoughts.
In the meantime, I think that LORAC has knocked it out of the park again, with Disney, and another amazing, collector edition of a makeup color story for a film. I was SO impressed with the Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Men Tell No Tales collection ,though this is just as stunning.
I have the eyeshadow pallet, cheek color palette, lipglosses and lipsticks and I’m beyond delighted! The colors are everyday perfect and if you know LORAC products, you know how soft, silky, smooth, blendable, pigmented, wet or dry they are!
I love all of the lip colors and the lipsticks or lip glosses can be worn alone, with liner, paired together or mixed and matched!
If you are a fan of anything Disney, Belle, Beast, the film or LORAC and special editions, rush to get these now because who knows how long they will be around!
Remember to let me know in the comments – if you were going to buy a film makeup color story – what products do you want to buy?
asking for your help so as I develop the makeup color story for BEARLY
film, Jael, ZBoy and Nascar Nights – I want to be sure and create the
top products that people are most interested in buying!
Personally, I live in bronzer and gloss – so those are top items for me to create! Looking forward to your thoughts!
