🍂My Favorite Fall Go-To Lip Combo 💋


Fall is here to stay, and my favorite part about it is bold but season appropriate makeup! This time, I’m sharing my ultimate fall lip combo using none other than Kylie Cosmetics OG Metal Matte lipsticks in the shades Reign and King K. Kylie has released two newer Metal Matte lippies in the shades Dancer and Kymajesty. Kymajesty has been discontinued, but had a lot of negative feedback due to its lack of pigment. There were also a lot of complaints from customers saying that their lipsticks came poorly packaged or even halfway empty. Dancer was released with the Christmas collection and remains on the site.

Price


Kylies Metal Matte lipsticks will run you $18.00 plus tax. This is a great price point for her demographic. Compared to similar lines like Beauty Bakerie where a single Lip Whip, as they call their liquid lipsticks, will run you $20.00 Kylies price fits right in!

Pros


These Beautiful lipsticks are super opaque and dry down to a semi matte finish. Both have amazing pigment, and do not settle into those pesky fine lines you may have in your lips.

Cons

The cons are small, but need to be mentioned. The lipsticks are advertised as a Metal Matte…which simply is inaccurate at best. These don’t dry down to a completely matte finish which doesn’t bother me, but I know it is something a prospective buyer would like to know. My only other con is the fact its Kylie Jenner. I know a lot of people refuse to support the Jenner/Kardashian family and that is perfectly fine. I’ve also stated before that I will not be purchasing from her again as I feel like she doesn’t really listen to her fan base and customers and that’s just not a person I want to give my hard earned money to.


These liquid lipsticks together create the perfect bold, but Autumn appropriate, ombre` lip!

Jay Manuel Beauty Lip + Eye pencil in Wicked| Review


Welcome back to my corner of the internet! Today I’m reviewing the eye and lip pencil by Jay Manuel Beauty! I got this product as a free sample from an app called Plum. I haven’t used it until more recently when I created a makeup look, where I used the pencil smudged along my lashline!

Price

As I got this product free, I’t was for sure in the correct price point haha! But seriously, this pencil retails at $20.00 on the Jay Manuel website. The pricing is more of a high end product so I suppose the price point is pretty good.

Pigment

I haven’t come across a black eyeliner PENCIL this pigmented! It definitely took me by surprise when I swatched it. Using this pencil on your waterline for a smokey look would be perfect!


As you can see here I used the pencil on my upper and lower lashline and smudged it out using a small smudger brush from Morphe.


The product blended perfectly, and was super dark and perfect as a base for darker shadows.

Overall Thoughts? Would I Purchase?

Overall I LOVE this eyeliner! I don’t grab for pencil eyeliners often as i’m addicted to gel and liquid liners, but this pencil has for sure changed that! Its very creamy and easy to blend and doesn’t run in the waterline. This is the perfect pencil eyeliner!

 

Have you tried the Jay Manuel cosmetics line? Your thoughts on this liner?

 

Till next time,

XOXO Lynn

Hello Gorgeous !💋 My Road To Body Positivity

Hello everyone, you all don’t know… but I’ve struggled with accepting myself at every weight I’ve been through my life. Before I had my daughter, I was pretty content with my size. I was curvy but felt I was perfect to me and that was all that mattered. Thought time I grew problems with my weight due to a toxic relationship I was in where I was always put down for my size. 

After being in that relationship, I questioned my appearance and attractiveness due to weight. I’ve never been a size small and at the time it seemed everyone around me including the media was glorifying a small slender frame and looking down on anyone who was larger. This created a fight within myself. On one side I wanted to be as thin as everyone else that was praised so highly for their slender bodies. And on the other side I wanted to be happy with myself no matter what size I was. 


Well I found out I was pregnant with my daughter and gained about 20 lbs. I was in shambles. I was disappointed in myself for gaining weight, not realizing the weight I gained was mostly from my daughter and not just me eating crazy.  I slowly started to see myself as pretty and was content with my size. My weight has always fluctuated and never been stable. When I learned I was pregnant with my son I was okay with my body, but still self conscious of how other people saw me. After giving birth for the second time I was surprisingly happy that I was down to my pre pregnancy weight within the first three months postpartum. 


This timeline leads me up till now. As of now, I’m content with my body and size. But I do still have times where I wonder what others think and don’t wear certain things because of that. I’m planning on using my blog more to show my journey of falling back in love with myself. I love being plus size. Is it a struggle sometimes when it comes to clothes and certain trends? Yes. But, the only way to really fall in love with myself and be carefree is to step outside of my box and do things differently than I have been doing. Trying new styles. Trying risky styles that I’d never grab for on a regular day. And I’m ready for the challenge! I hope you all follow me on this journey and potentially learn something as well!


Thank you for reading! 

XOXO, Lynn❤️
