My Beauty Addiction Fall Lippie Review + Swatches!!

Earlier this year, I was introduced to the wonder that is My Beauty Addiction (MBA). They sell a variety of beauty products, such as lipsticks, lip glazes, lip scrubs, eyeshadows, lashes, make up brushes. You name it, they more than likely sell it! I am a HUGE fan of all of their lipsticks. The quality is amazing, the color selection is vast, and the prices are super affordable! Also, it’s a huge bonus that their products are handmade and they even offer samples of their lippies and eyeshadows. So, what’s not to love! They also sell other brands on their site, such as LA Girl Cosmetics. Get into my most recent lipstick purchase below!

LA Girl Matte Velvet Lipstick in Relentless, $4.00
 This is the second LA Girl lippie I have purchased from MBA. The color is really pretty. However, I think it takes quite a few layers to get the opacity that I prefer. Also, this product really doesn’t have much staying power. It lasts for a couple of hours before it starts to fade…that’s without eating or drinking. So, I would really only recommend wearing this if you are just running out to the grocery store or something quick.

MBA Luxury Matte Lipstick in Salsa, $9.50
 OMG this color is EVERYTHING! Salsa is a warm red; the perfect red, fall lipstick. The color payoff is amazing! Although this is a matte formula, it is actually very moisturizing in comparison to other matte formulas. It glides on very smooth and isn’t patchy once applied to the lips. Definitely another go to red for me! I highly recommend this lipstick to anybody looking for the perfect go to red!

MBA Color Rich Lipstick in Violetta, $5.50
I am a huge fan of the color rich lipsticks and have been since I first started purchasing from MBA. This is the first time I purchased lipstick from MBA in the jar formula. Normally I purchase their lipstick in the tube. However, I wanted to try the jars because the color payoff is a little richer when I apply from the jar versus the tube. But, that is just my opinion. Anyway, Violetta is the perfect shade of purple for an evening out when you are not trying to be super bold with your lips. It is described as “a deep, red purple with a shimmer” on the website and that is the perfect description for the color.

MBA Sugar Babies Jojoba Lip Glaze in Brown Sugar, $5.50

This is my first time trying the lip glazes and I am trying to figure out why I have waited so long. I am usually not a huge fan of super glossy lipsticks, so maybe that’s why I never tried it. However, this formula is glossy, but it’s not extremely shiny. It’s moisturizing and it isn’t sticky. An added bonus, it tastes like sugar! YUM! The only issue you will run into with this lip glaze is trying not to lick it off your lips!  

Which of these lippies will you be trying out?

Top Coat, Concealer, and Lippie Review

I took a little trip to Sephora with my mind set on buying only a top coat and concealer. That’s it. The good news is that I bought those two items…the not so good news is I came out with a new lipstick and a GORGEOUS eyelash curler and mascara set. Get into my purchases now!

tarte Eyelash Curler and Mascara, $20

I didn’t need an eyelash curler or another mascara, butttttt when I saw this stunning curler, I just COULD NOT resist!!! It caught my eye and for 20 bucks for both, why not? The mascara is good, not great. It separated and lengthened my lashes and I ended up with a nice bright, wide-eyed look. This is the perfect mascara for a casual outing. I probably wouldn’t wear it for a night out. I haven’t used an eyelash curler in soooo long, but I definitely noticed a difference in my eyelashes after using it. I’ll definitely be using this more often. This stunning duo is a limited edition item at Sephora, so get it now before it’s too late!!


NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer in Amande, $29


One of my best friends recommended this concealer to me, so I thought I would try it and am I glad I did! This concealer sets on its own, it doesn’t crease, and it blends perfectly! The doe foot wand makes application easy. Definitely recommend this concealer! It comes in 10 shades so you really shouldn’t have a problem finding the perfect shade for your skin tone.


Nails, Inc. 45 Second Top Coat, $15

Before trying this product, I was using the Sally Hansen Fast Dry Top Coat in the red bottle. I thought it was an awesome product. My nails would be completely dry within 7 minutes or so. However, the shine wouldn’t last as long, but I kept using it because it was the quickest drying top coat and it was cheap. BUT, today, I came across this top coat and I will NEVER go back to the Sally Hansen one. Like the product advertises, my nails were dry to the touch in 45 seconds and COMPLETELY dry in 3 minutes and the shine is super glossy. No smudging from pressing my nails against something too long. No polish being pushed back at the tips from trying to pop the top off of something. Nothing! This top coat is a little pricey, but it is worth the splurge!


Bite Beauty Creme Lipstick Duo in Scarlet/Mulberry, $14

Left: Mulberry; Bottom right: Scarlet

This duo is AMAZING!!! The formula is super moisturizing! However, the color does fade after eating or drinking. The color payoff is opaque after two coats. Scarlet is my favorite. It is a dark blood red. Mulberry is also a beautiful wine color. This duo is perfect for mixing the two colors together or wearing them individually. The lipsticks are kind of small…so I’m sure I will get through these pretty quickly, as I intend for these to be my go to colors. This is another limited edition product, so make sure you get it before the holidays end!
