too faced le petit trésor set.


I’ve tried my fair share of lipsticks, but it dawned on me recently that I’ve never tried any by one of my favorite brands: Too Faced. Wandering through Amazon.com last month I found an awesome deal on Too Faced lipsticks that I just couldn’t resist; a year or so ago Too Faced came out with a lipstick set that lets you try multiple colors without overpaying. One La Crème lipstick on their website and in stores retails $22, but this set came with an exclusive glitter bag and 3 FULL SIZE lipsticks for around $42-44! It’s like getting one for free!!!!

This set comes with 3 lipsticks in the shades Nude Beach (a nude peach), Taffy (a pink marshmallow nude), and Wham! (an iridescent raspberry).



Nude Beach and Taffy look very similar on my lips in these pictures, but Nude Beach has more of a brown undertone compared to the pink undertone of Taffy.

Overall, these lipsticks are very buttery in texture and glide onto the lips. Their staying power is pretty moderate so you will definitely need to carry them around during the day and reapply.

For the price, these lipsticks are gorgeous! I could use these everyday and I’m excited to try more of the colors in their lineup.

new urban decay products: hot or not?

As an avid UD Junkie, last month I ordered 2 new products from Urban Decay’s Spring 2017 lineup and I wanted to do an honest review about how they worked for me.









All Nighter Setting Spray                                      Rating: 4 out of 5 (Hot) 

img_0304UD’s img_0311all nighter setting spray is definitely a dream product! A spray that keeps your makeup fresh all day? Impossible!

Enter this product: this magical spray will lock down anything you put on your face for 13+ hours!

Pros: As a dry-skinned gal myself, this product keeps me from looking “cakey” all day. One spray goes a long way! It has also kept my makeup on during a sweaty concert, a rainy day, and a long night. Oh, and did I mention the packaging is adorable?

Cons: It has a bit of a weird smell when it’s sprayed, but it goes away. And at $31 a bottle, my wallet cried a little.

Day of Testing: Take One


*13 hours +!! I applied a full-face of makeup and sprayed it at 9:40 am. 3 college classes, lunch, work, a lab, dinner, and a meeting later…my makeup still looked pretty good. It was starting to fade a little bit, but it lasted well until I took it off at 11:14 pm.*







Vice Liquid Lipstick (Trivial)                              Rating: 2 out of 5 (Not)

img_0308This was a good idea on UD’s partimg_0309, but this just didn’t live up to the hype for me. Maybe I picked the wrong shade? The shade Trivial was described on their website as a “comfort matte pink nude” but it has a sparkle to it that I did not expect. I really wanted to love this, but I just don’t.

Pros: The packaging is cute and the color does look decent when applied with a lip brush.img_0317

Cons: It doesn’t dry down all the way because of the sparkles. It also skips when you apply it with the applicator it comes with and leaves spots. The color transfers quickly and only lasts 4-5 hours at most. It also gets chunky in the center of my lips after about an hour. I’ll not going to keep it because $18 for this terrible quality isn’t worth it.
