Top 3 October Beauty Faves!

Mary Kay CC Cream Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 15 in Deep, $20.00  


Top: Unblended; Below tag: blended (perfect match!)

I love this liquid CC cream because it is so smooth and blends easily into my skin. It evens out my complexion and covers any blemishes I may have. It comes in a tube with a convenient pump. The pump allows you to control how much product you get on your hand. I apply a few dots all over my face and then blend it out with my fingers working from the inside of my face out. This product is perfect for my sensitive skin because it is not drying or irritating in any way.

Nyx Cosmetics Born to Glow Liquid Illuminator in Pure Gold, $7.49

I blogged about this product a few weeks ago. Since my blog post, I’ve started using this as an all over face Illuminator and not just on my cheekbones. I’ve been obsessed with trying to find a product that makes me skin glow from within, and I’m glad I finally found one that works!

IT Cosmetics Superhero Elastic Stretch Volumizing Mascara in Jet Black, $24.00

Left: no mascara; Right: mascara applied

I bought this mascara a few months ago from Ulta and never really got around to using it. I used it for the first time over the weekend and loved how much it lengthened my eyelashes and made them look so much fuller. It’s my new go to when I want a dramatic effect for my lashes!

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream Review + Swatches

I have been on the prowl for a liquid to matte lipstick for a while. I have tried a few which I have reviewed here and here. I have been looking for a formula that dries matte, but that is not extremely drying on my lips or sticky when it dries. I believe I found what I have been looking for in this product! I purchased the NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in the color Coppenhagen from Target the other day. I really love the color. It is a berry wine shade. The doe foot wand applicator made applying the lip cream super easy. It dries matte after 15 seconds or so, which means you have to work quickly to clean up any mistakes. The formula was matte without being drying. I did not feel like I needed to keep reapplying or anything. I did prime with Aquaphor to add some moisture to my lips before applying the lip cream, but I do that with ALL of my lipsticks.The color barely faded after eating and drinking and it lasted for hours, without ever feeling dry on my lips. I definitely look forward to trying some of the other shades that this product comes in!

Red Lips That Are To DIE For!

Everyone needs a good red lip. Red lips are classic and can be worn year round. The good thing about red lippies is that no two reds are the exact same. Which means, you can NEVER have too many reds. With that being said, get into a review of some of my favorite red lippies!

Wet n Wild Beauty MegaLast Lip Color in Stoplight Red, $1.99

This was one of the first lip colors I purchased from Wet n Wild and I have been in love ever since. I purchased it after doing some research online and finding an article saying that this particular lip color was a dupe of MAC Ruby Woo…and it is. However, it is not matte like Ruby Woo. It has a more satin finish, which I LOVE! This shade of red is more of a true red and that is what I love about it. It has awesome staying power, it barely fades after drinking or a light meal. If I had to choose, this would probably be my second favorite red.

My Beauty Addiction Luxury Matte Lipstick in Salsa, $9.50

Ooo la la! I so love this red! I saw it on a model on MBA’s IG page and had to have it!  To see my full review of this lippie, click here.

MAC Lipstick in MAC Red, $17.00
Soooo this is my GO TO RED! I wear this lipstick at least three times a week! It is super moisturizing and the perfect red for summer or winter. It has a very smooth, satiny application. The pigment in this lip color is very rich. The only downfall to this lippie is that it fades completely after eating. Bummer….but, it doesn’t stop this from being my favorite!

Julep Full Coverage Lip Crayon in Cardinal Red, $20.00 

I received this lip crayon in my first Julep subscription box. I tried it on and fell in love. It has a very smooth application and the color for this one is also very rich. I don’t wear this color very often because I forgot I had it, but, I will be wearing it much more often now that I have rediscovered it!

NYX Extra Creamy Round Lipstick in Snow White, $4.00

I bought this lipstick from Target last weekend and am I glad I did! For this lipstick to only be $4, the quality is amazing! I applied this lipstick around 7 AM, ate lunch around 12:30 or 1, and the lipstick had barely faded. It looked almost as good as it did when I applied it that morning (head over to my Instagram (@jewellslipsandtips) to see a picture). This is a slightly deeper red, which makes it perfect for the cooler months. I will definitely wear this lippie out this winter!

What are your go to red lippies? Let me know in the comments so that I can try out some new reds!
