Currently Obsessed: e.l.f. and Laura Mercier (Part 2)

It wasn’t long before I ended up at my favorite (wouldn’t say local, since there are e.l.f. stores that are much closer to me than the one I like) e.l.f. store – my Planet Fitness was literally less than a 5 minute drive from it. Keeping the e.l.f. lipstick in mind, I made sure to snag it with the new blending and swirly brushes from the Beautifully Bare line that, surprisingly, were available in-store too.

From previous experience, the store usually gets products that get dropped on e.l.f.’s online store much later, so to see the blending and swirly brushes on the store shelves right after they dropped online was a bit of a surprise, but one that I wasn’t gonna protest because I didn’t have to worry about shipping.

I’m Over Matte Lips. 

Yep. I’m over it. I tried it because it was a trend that seemed interesting, but I couldn’t deal with the dry lips that came with it. Lip balm is a temporary fix but it also makes the stuff bleed faster, even with a lip liner.

But I’m not over the moon with the glossy lip look (I’m looking at you, Revlon Ultra Lip Lacquer!) either. Isn’t that the point of lip gloss? Shiny lips without the full lipstick coverage?

I’ll still wear my matte liquid lipsticks – paid a pretty penny for them after all. And I like the colors. I just wish they were a little more forgiving when the time to retouch them comes up. 

Peeps can still rock the matte lip. I’m cool with it. But it’s just something that I need to get off my chest.

CO: Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil

Happy Friday, Beautiful Blossoms! I hope your week went by smoothly and if not, well, at least you’re here because you love makeup or you’re just addicted to it. I fall on the latter – I dropped by the Kiko Milano in Kings Plaza and snagged me some lip stuff.

But today’s post is going to be dedicated to my OTHER go-to red lip product when I’m not relying on my Kiko Milano Temptress Lip Set: the NARS Velvet Matte Lip in Cruella. This pricey bitch got introduced to me on my birthday because I didn’t know Sephora actually gave out birthday gifts.

I was too distraught by my ex cheating on me that day so I went to Sephora to feel better.

Currently Obsessed: Kiko Milano (Part 3)

Last time on Currently Obsessed: 

I finished my haul, surprising the sales associate at the counter with the amount of lipsticks I was purchasing. The price that I paid for was in the $100-150 range and in Sephora, I would have gotten only 5 items.

You’d think that that was the end of my story with Kiko, right?

Nope.

You see, Kiko had a branch in Queens Center Mall. Cue reaction here.
