I've been meaning to do this review for a while. Gather 'round boys and girls...it's time to talk about Revlon Colorstay Liquid Lipstick. I bought this about three months ago after being drawn in by the sultry bold red color. I saw the price tag and was like "Ehh...I dunno about that..", but I went ahead and bought it anyway.
Finally!! After numerous false-hope emails from Sephora saying "Oh, this palette is back in stock", only to find out that it wasn't...I placed my order at Ulta. Yes folks, the elusive Urban Decay Naked Palette ($44) is all mine! Personally, I feel the hype is well deserved. This is an amazing product you guys...foreal...I shoulda bought two!
I remember when I was little and I heard someone say they were wearing a lipstick by Bobbi Brown, and I immediately blurted out "Dude from New Edition has makeup?" SMH. I was quickly corrected lol. Hell, I was like 12 years old and didn't know jack cheese about makeup, sue me :P
(updated 8/21/10 w/ new swatches!) When my parents and I pulled up into their driveway today, my mom said "There's a package on the doorstep" and I just knew it was mine. I walked up to it, saw the HAUTELOOK tape wrapped around the small brown box and literally hit a Mariah Carey note of excitement. I knew exactly what it was! I grabbed my dog, tossed my box in the passenger seat and sped home to open my little box of joy in the form of Rock & Republic blushes ($40 each). I didn't order these directly from the Rock & Republic website...instead I got them half price on Hautelook! *poplocks with passion and conviction*
Heavens to Betsy! I finally got my Chanel fix in the form of a beautiful blue-based red lipstick called Paris from Chanel's Rouge Coco line. This lipstick is everything. Smooth, creamy, hydrating, super long lasting...and gorgeous. I have a serious love for beautiful blue-based red lipsticks, they are my favorite -- and Paris has wiggled her way into my top favorite reds. I picked this tube up at the Chanel counter at my local Macy's...after telling myself I wasn't gonna buy it anytime soon. Chanel lipsticks are expensive, and I just cannot go around spending $30 on a single tube of lipstick all willy-nilly...
I see you. You're outside standing under a 900-thread count blanket of heat and humidity. You're not happy. Your makeup is sliding off your face. You're sweating like a hooker in church. You're greasier than Jermaine Jackson in 1997. It's hotter than the rubber on the bottom of Precious's shoes after she stole that bucket of chicken and ran off to class like a bat out of hell. Miserable, huh? I hate this time of year! The east coast humidity is just...so ridiculous and unfair. You can stand outside and literally do nothing but stand...and start pouring buckets of sweat. That ain't right! I get so greasy and oily this time of year, so I needed something to soak up that oil like a Popeye's biscuit...and I found it!!!
