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.

Currently Obsessed: e.l.f. and Laura Mercier (Part 1)

And one that I’m now certain that I will chuck out: NYX Lip Lingerie (because they made a Lingerie line for lids and I made the mistake of using it as a liquid lip).

Welp, Beautiful Blossoms, I did say in an earlier post today that I was going to blog after work! Sure, it took me a bit of time to get settled (I left one of my bags at the clinic so I had to go and get it), but now everything is well again in my makeup space.

I’m kinda glad to bring back the Currently Obsessed series because it’s been some time since I became obsessed with what I use in my makeup rotation and in this case, I found myself doing a Pong between the e.l.f. Beautifully Bare Satin Lipstick in A Touch of Blush and the Laura Mercier DS Velour Lovers Lip Color in Devotion.

And pretty much disliking the NYX Lip Lingerie in Teddy, which I wore today and I can honestly say that it is NOT flattering on me.

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.

Currently Obsessed: Kiko Milano (Part 3)

Previously on Currently Obsessed:

Kiko Milano proved itself to be worthy of dethroning Sephora as my go-to store for lipstick. Their Luscious Cream Lipstick’s selling price was enough for me to quit blowing $26 for every NARS Lip Crayon in Cruella in almost every Sephora I come across.

A second trip to Kiko Milano in Kings Plaza was needed. This time, my grandma and my sister tagged along – my grandma was curious to see the lipstick line that got me to babble on and on and on about it to her and my sister wanted to shop for new shoes in the Vans store in the mall. 

My excitement from the first visit to Kiko Milano had doubled. I couldn’t wait to do a lipstick haul on the 510!
