🍂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!

August Favorites


Can you believe it’s that time again! Goodbye August and hello September! Today I’m sharing my August favorites including beauty, music, and lifestyle! Let’s hop in!

Beauty

Freeman Anti-Stress Clay Mask ($9.75)


http://amzn.to/2viElIN

This has been my absolute favorite mask to use to clear my skin and prepare my skin for the week ahead. I’ve noticed fewer breakouts and my skin is baby soft after I rinse it off.

PraySlayHustle Drink it up Facial Oil ($12.00)

I’ve been using this Drink It Up Facial Oil for over a month now and I cannot put it down! It’s the perfect amount of moisture for my skin without me looking like an oil slick. And the best part? This oil is made by a black owned business and is super affordable!

Amuse Cosmetics Eyebrow Pencil ($6.98)


http://amzn.to/2vAOX8g

I’ve been loving this eyebrow pencil for more natural brow days! My pencil is in the shade Dark Coffee . No makeup makeup has never been more simple! This product stays matte all day and will not budge!

Music


http://amzn.to/2um3oNJ

I used to have a very diverse taste in music. So when I ran across Lana Del Rey I was instantly drawn in. Her soft soothing voice and lyrics have a sound and tone for everyone. Her recent album, Lust for Life is an everyday staple. From the time I wake up, to the time I go to sleep if I have my earphones in 9/10 I’m listening to this amazing artist!

Lifestyle

Yoga


Yoga with Adriene

This month I began a 30 days of yoga program on YouTube from HOME. Its changed so much. I’m more energized after I’m done, so I’m able to get so much more done everyday! Yoga with Adriene has been an amazing program and I love waking up early every morning and completing the yoga program for the day.

Bullet Journal

My bullet journal has grown to be my best friend. I love having everything written down and organized in my journal. Bullet journaling is perfect because it gives you the opportunity to customize your layouts to what you need as opposed to the journals that already have sections in them.

Till next time!
