MAC Lipstick Puts You at the Top of Your Game

Since MAC lipsticks are such a staple in my life, I figured I must review at least one. My favorite out of their Matte Lipstick collection is my limited edition Haute-Core, which is a black lip.

This product goes on so smoothly, it's really incredible, and gives me a great matte finish. They're definitely right in describing their lip color as creamy.

Unfortunately, my one battle with MAC's lip products is that they always bleed so they need to be partnered with a lip liner.

I give it 4 kisses.


MAC's Matte Lipsticks are available on www.maccosmetics.com for $17.50.

MAC Brings Glassy Lips to the Forefront

When MAC says LipGlass, they mean glass!

This lipgloss brings the ultimate shine to your smile. With a little bit of shimmer, too, this product goes on smoothly with their easy-to-use applicator. The lipgloss even smells fruity!

I do have to note that this product tends to bleed a lot, so you'll definitely need to invest in a lip liner. And because it's a gloss, get ready for your hair to get stuck on your lips. That's one thing I don't miss using matte lipsticks!

I give it 3 kisses because it's overpriced for what you get, which is something I don't say very often about MAC.

City Color Brings Grade A Contour

I'll be honest. I've never been a City Color fan. I've never been impressed by the quality of their products, though I've often been tempted by the price.

Their contour palette really surprised me. I'd grown sick of my shimmer bronzer because it exemplified by skin's imperfections, so I was happy to find that City Color's palette provides a perfect matte finish.

With their three shades, which they call contour, bronze, and highlight, I can sweep on an effortless contour using my BlendSMART brush!

Plus, they're cruelty free! What more could I ask for?

I will note that while this palette works well on my skin tone, I'm fairly pale. I can unfortunately see these shades being an issue for women with darker skin tones.

I give it 5 kisses.

NYX Lingerie Keeps Your Smile Kissable

If you're looking for the best (and inexpensive) brown lip, we've found it!

NYX Lingerie in Beauty Mark is the perfect brown for all skin tones. This matte shade goes on smoothly so it's easy to make perfect lines. Plus, it's dries quickly so there's no risk of ruining your look or getting your hair stuck in your lipstick!

It does need touch-ups every once in a while, however, because it will start to look opaque.

I give it 5 kisses.

Liner that Lasts Me All Day (And All Night)

I love my eye liner, so much so that I hardly ever leave the house without a cat eye. But I've struggled to find a great liquid eyeliner.

Until now. My last Sephora haul resulted in Make Up For Ever's Aqua XL Ink Eye Liner and it was the best $24 I've ever spent--honestly.

This liner doesn't smear. I've been wearing it all day and it won't come off! It's a thick black color that  doesn't need touch ups or multiple applications. Plus, it's so easy to apply with its sturdy felt applicator.

I give it 5 kisses (I'd give it more if I could).

Rosy Cheeks with Bobbi Brown

I've always been a fan of Bobbi Brown so naturally, I was excited when I picked up their blush in Sand Pink.

I've said before that I'm not a huge fan of blushes but this color was too perfect for my skin tone. With just a swipe of my brush, I had just enough color on the apple of my cheeks.

The color applied evenly with just a little shimmer and lasted all day long. The perfect summer look, if I do say so myself.

I give it 5 kisses.

Dirty Little Secret is Like Glue (The Good Kind)

I'm a virgin to Dirty Little Secret's products, but I was certainly impressed with their Sangria Eye Shadow.

This bronzed-rose shadow is incredibly pigmented--like nothing I've ever seen before. The color is so strong that it's actually hard to blend! But that just means it stays put and doesn't crease. It looks great when I mix it with some shades from this BH Cosmetics Palette.

The pinkish hue even looks great on multiple skin tones so it's a win for every woman (and a must-have for their makeup collections).

I give it 4 kisses.

TreStiqué's Weird Pencil Does the Job!

When I first picked up TreStique's Brow Pencil, I was thrown off by the shape. No eye brow pencil has ever looked like this before!

But it fits in my purse easily so I thought I'd give it a shot and I was so glad I did!

This product goes on flawlessly and makes sculpting my brows a piece of cake. Plus, it lasts all day and all night!

I give it 5 kisses.
