I’ve had an obsession with brown/nude lips lately and have been picking up a ton of different products to achieve the look I’m craving! I’m really happy with what I found and wanted to share 4 of my favorites with you:
1) NYC City Proof “Gold With Me” 460:
2) NARS Female Trouble:
3) NYC Smooch Proof Lip Stain Never Ending Nude 492
4) Rimmel London Lasting Finish By Kate Lipstick/Rosseto
I’ve been using these products religiously for the last couple of weeks. I recently Instagram-ed this pictures of the NARS gloss:
I really like all of these products! I’d have to say that my absolute favorites are the Rimmel Lipstick and the NARS gloss. The NYC gloss is probably my least favorite…there’s a little too much shimmer for me. The good news is that most of them are definitely affordable and can be found in nearly any drug or beauty store.
Let me know if you have a favorite nude lip product!
I was so excited to participate in my first blogger swap this past week! Huge thank you to Danielle over at Framed Frosting for setting everything up 🙂
The blogger that I was assigned to was Sami! She blogs at Sami’s Shenanigans and seems like such a sweet girl, we actually have a lot in common (including a chihuahua names Lily LOL) which made shopping for her even more fun! She wrote a sweet reveal post today about everything I sent to her, I’m so glad she liked what I picked out- make your way over to her blog to see! 🙂
After reading Sami’s reveal post, I see that she sent a package to Ashley who blogs at The Sweet Life who happened to be the lovely lady who sent a package to ME! How ironic is that?
I really loved what Ashley sent to me, check out everything in the big reveal below …
I had a lot of fun participating in the swap- it was a great first experience, and I hope to do another in the future!
Have you ever participated in a blogger swap? What was the best thing you received?
Over the past month I’ve picked up a bunch of new products; more so than normal. I though it’d be appropriate to do an April favorites post and share five of my newest faves with you. Enjoy!
1) Neutrogena Body Oil
My Mom swears by this product and picked up a bottle for me to try. It is applied to your entire body immediately after you get out of the shower. The oil is light, but effective. It combines with the water on your body and soaks into the skin to help keep it hydrated all day long. It is not greasy, and the scent is actually pleasant. My favorite part is that it makes moisturizing much quicker, and easier!
New fan! 🙂
2) Sally Hansen Maximum Growth Cuticle Pen
You may know about my obsession with cuticle oil, balm, and moisturizer products if you read one of my older posts– but I have found another one to add to the list! My Sephora cuticle pen ran out a while ago and I had yet to make a trip to the mall to replace it. The other day while at CVS I noticed this product and decided to give it a try. I am so excited about it because it works just as well- if not better than the Sephora brand (and it’s $5 cheaper)! 😉 This pen actually expels oil, as opposed to the oily/cream from the other pen. I really love it, and have been using it so many times per day that I may have to get another one soon!
I received a sample size of this product in my most recent issue of Cosmopolitan. I rarely if ever actually try these products, but I was curious about this one. I’m so glad I got the opportunity, because this cream is incredible! The product itself looks like a heavy foundation, but wears like a tinted moisturizer…only it’s hand’s down one of, if not the best tinted moisturizer I’ve yet to use! The coverage is phenomenal, and lasts all day long. I have my go-to foundation favorites, but I will definitely be using this product for the time being. 🙂
(I cannot wait to do a review on this product so you can see!)
I recently posted a review of 4 pink lip products, and have been using this particular one religiously. It has the perfect amount of color for everyday use, it has a decent lifespan on the lips, and it smells so, SO yummy which never hurts! 😉 It was really affordable and is definitely a new favorite!
5) Jergens Natural Glow Express Body Moisturizer
I have to give credit to my roommate who actually found this first! We’re always looking for new at home tanning products and this one happens to have been a keeper. Before bed, wash and exfoliate your face, apply this lotion evenly, go to sleep, and wake up tan. It’s as simple as that- it seriously works wonders.
Just make sure you wash your hands after applying**

I work full time for a PR & Marketing agency, luckily we don’t have to wear suits or full blown business attire everyday, but we can’t get too crazy, so I’m always trying to mix casual, professional, and fashionable by adding a pop of color or fun accessories to my outfits! The other day I had a nice combination, which left me feeling somewhat patriotic; check it out…
How do you try to mix fun & color into your work wardrobe?
I love makeup as much as the next girl, but I’ve never been one to spend a lot of money for it…especially when it comes to trends.
Right now I am loving bright pink lips! Over the past few weeks I’ve picked up four different lip sticks/stains/balms and glosses…all available in nearly every drugstore, and all under $15! Check out my new favorites…
Even Khloe Kardashian is rocking the hot pink lips!
