okay, so I have a darker lip color and it is really hard to fin d a pale pink or a nude color that look good without looking pastie or being so sheer that it doesn't event look like im wearing anything except gloss. I went to Mac and got a gloss but it isnt long lasting and it s nude that still isnt what i was looking for. Any thought.??
Hey Ammipoo, this is Morgan. (:
Well, I personally love my Mac Viva Glam Gaga 2 lipstick, and applied with a peachy gloss and a light hand it can really be very subtle if that’s what you’re looking for. It is also very buildable, so if you wanted a dramatic nude lip it would be ideal for that too. I have very light skin so I’ll have Samantha answer this question later too because she has a more olive tone. But I definitely recommend you give that a shot, and remember a light hand! I like to blend it with my pinkie before I put on gloss.
It is also for a good cause, I believe all of the proceeds, if not a good bit of it goes to the MAC AIDS fund. It also comes in a gloss! The lipstick is about 15 dollars, and you can buy it here: http://www.maccosmetics.com/whats_new/4800/index.tmpl
I might also recommend trying some of the nude shades in the Revlon Lip Butter line that everyone is raving about?
I hope this helped, let me know what you find!
So I definitely think you should try the Mac Pro Longwear Lipglass. I always put some on before work, and it stays until the end of my 8 hour shift. It is also almost like a lipstick because it is definitely not sheer. My go to pale/pink from that line is Inifinitely Likable, I think it would be good with your skin tone, since I have more olive/tan complexion like you. If not, you can always try Show Me! From the Pro Longwear, which is a nude but not as pasty pink. You also should try the Revlon Lip Butter in Creme Brule. It is pigmented enough to cover the darkness in your lips. The only down side is that you would have to re-apply every 30 minutes-2 hours depending on what you are doing. Also, Neutrogena has a tinted lip balm in Soft Caramel which is also good and has decent coverage & Rimmel has a pretty nude/pink lipstick called Airy Fairy which I would say would be the best lipstick for your skin tone.
I really hope this helped you!
In my October Birchbox I received yet another Pangea Organics product (They’re nice and all, but I’m collecting the whole set over here Birchbox!) and I had the chance to try it out a few weeks ago.
I was not thoroughly impressed with this product, but perhaps I am just bored with the brand? It is similar to the rest of the Pangea products that I have tried in that is smells very organic and herbal, and has never left my skin feeling dry or irritated. In my experience Pangea is a very gentle brand. But, it had a very strange texture and unless applied with a very heavy hand, uneven coverage.
The mask left my face feeling hydrated and balanced. Reminded me a bit of Lush’s facial masks that need to be refrigerated, but spend your money on those instead because they are a lot better quality. It is not something I would repurchase, although I will use the rest of it eventually.
Here is a picture of the fun that my sister and I had with this bizarre, leafy concoction. Yes I am wearing a tin foil hat. No I do not remember why. That is all.
In the winter time the air is dry, which is great for keeping curls or a sleek straight look, but winter time also creates the perfect conditions for split ends, and dry hair. Winter is coming soon, so here are a few tips and products that will keep your hair soft, shiny and healthy.
Take your dry, end of the day hair and brush it out gently from bottom to top, to reduce breakage.
Take a spray bottle full of water, or a wet brush and dampen your hair until it is thoroughly moist all the way through.
Conditioner of choice: Aussie 3 Minute Miracle, can be bought at your local drug store, Walmart or grocery store. ($3-4 depending on where you buy) Squeeze out a sizable amount, or enough to apply to the length of your hair. Work through with fingers, focusing on the ends.
Twist and wrap your hair up into a messy but functional bun and secure with a hair elastic.
Wait thirty minutes and wash out in the sink, or in the shower. Blow dry WITH HEAT PROTECTORS!!!!! These are very important! They keep your hair safe from damaging irons and dryers.
I recommend these:
Tresemme Heat Tamer Spray: Again, commonly found wherever hair products are sold, very cheap also $3-4.
Redken Smooth Down Heat Glide: This is a more pricey option for heat protection, can be found at some CVS and Walmart stores, but it depends. $16
Redken Extreme Anti-Snap: This isn’t a heat protectant but I wanted to show it because I used it on her hair, and it is a leave in treatment for split ends. Runs about $18.
Voila!!!! Very smooth hair after one conditioning, and better results over time.
Special thanks to my little sister and model, Bella. <3
Hope this helps!
