Urban Decay Lip Love review

So i discovered this new product by Urban Decay at my local Ulta store a few weeks ago. I love the brand Urban Decay and I am a bit of a lip junkie so i decided to try it out. The packaging is adorable with accents of gold and it just caught my eye in the store. The packaging says it is a honey infused lip therapy.

The color i choose was Taunt. It is a natural nude looking color in the tube. This lip product will run you about $16. When I got in my car after purchasing this item, I immediately tried it out on my lips and fell in love. This Lip gloss is not sticky AT ALL. It leaves your lips with a nice glossy glow. It feels so moisturizing on my lips and it feel like a lip conditioner rather then a lip gloss. It also smells just like honey!

After i fell in love with this product, I went out and picked up another color. The color I choose is called Drizzle and it is like a clear pink. There is just a hint of color in the Taunt color and with Drizzle there really isn't much color but I don't mind. This is now become a gloss that I will always have on me because its not only glossy on my lips but it conditions them too!

This is a GREAT product and i highly recommend it if you are looking for a non sticky lip gloss!

NYX soft matte lip creams review

so as I sit here and wait for the NYX 12 year anniversary sale website to work, I figured i would do some blogging. This will be a review on the NYX soft matte lip creams. I own two of the colors and i believe there are about 11, at least thats how many are listed on the Ulta website.
I picked up two of the colors. One in Istanbul (light pink color) and another in Stockholm (natural brown nude color). They are all named after places.
These are incredibly soft and feel really good on your lips. They are very moisturizing and not sticky at all! They smell amazing, like a sweet candy vanilla smell. They are extremely pigmented on swatches and on your lips. I think theses are a great product. They can be very subtle lip colors but you can play it up adding a gloss over them. I like to use a clear gloss over them to really make my lips pop.

 They have doe foot applicators and they glide on smoothly.  I think they are all around great lip products especially because some matte lip colors can be drying. These have moisture to them and do not dry out your lips.
 Comment below and let me know what you think of these if you have tried them or you were waiting for the NYX anniversary sale also! Don't forget to follow me! :)

Philosophy Kiss Me Tonight

So I have found the most amazing night time lip balm! This stuff is truly amazing!! It comes in a pot and it retails for about $20. It is a light pink color but comes out clear on your lips. I put this on my lips before i go to bed. It has a think balmy feeling on your lips. It is very smooth and not sticky at all! It stays on my lips all night and i even wake up in the morning and its still on my lips! It makes your lips so soft and it is very moisturizing.
 I have been using it for a few months now and i have fallen in love. I love everything about this lip balm right down to the amazing scent. It has a minty vanilla scent with it not too strong. It is just an all around great lip balm.
Tell me what you think if you have tried this lip balm or what is your favorite to use at night in the comments below! If your looking for a great night time lip balm, go and pick this one up! And don't forget to follow me also!

April favorites..better late then never :)

This past month i have been loving these products!

The first is my Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation! This is an amazing foundation that gives great build-able coverage. It has an SPF of 15 which i think is great for spring since the sun is really starting to shine! 

The next product would have to be my MUFE HD powder. I love using this to set my makeup and take away the shine. All the face powders i have are a little to dark for my skin tone so i have been using the MUFE one because it is translucent.

I have been loving my MAC 181 SE kabuki brush for applying my foundation. I used to use it for powder on the go but now i have found that it is a great brush to really buff in my foundation to my skin. I think it really adds to the flawless finish foundation is supposed to give you.

One of the best finds last months that i have been loving and using every day is the Garnier Nutritioniste anti-aging de-puff eye roller with a hint of color. This is great to use in the morning to wake my eyes up and take away the darkness. Sometimes i use it under my concealer but there are days where i can just use it alone!

My every day mascara was the Este Lauder Turbolash All Effects Motion Mascara. The color is 01 black and it makes a great natural looking mascara. It gives my lashes a little length and thickness. It has a vibrating brush that turns on when you unscrew the wand off.

For my lips i have been going simple with layering on some of MAC's Feelin' Good tinted lip conditioner. It is great in the morning when i have to throw on a quick lip color before i have to run off to class. I LOVE the smell of these.

The last favorite of the month is for my nails. This has become my go to base i use every time i put on a new nail color. It is the Sally Hansen Nail Nutrition Green Tea + Olive growth nail base. This is amazing, it is a great base and it really makes my nails grow. I can always notice a difference when i use it and when i don't.

Thanks for reading! If you have any questions or requests please comment below! Tell me some of your favorite products you used in April or some new ones you have just discovered for the month of may! Stay Lovely! :)
