MAC Angel Lipstick | Review

Hi guys!! If you haven’t noticed yet…I love lipstick! I took a trip to the MAC store hoping to pick up a lipstick that I have been wanting to get my hands on for several weeks now. I picked up MAC ANGEL and I am SO excited about it!! The color is absolutely gorgeous. I wanted Angel in particular, because it can be worn during the day for work or running errands, and it is also ideal for a night out when paired with a nude or soft pink lip gloss. You can even pump up the pink by wearing a bright lip liner underneath, or make it appear more nude, by priming your lips with concealer or a soft pink liner.

I am looking forward to mimicking Kim Kardashian’s former infamous lip combo which consisted of MAC Angel topped with NARS Turkish Delight lip gloss. The finishing touch of Turkish Delight generates a softer-pink look. I already tested out the duo and of course, my lips looked like heaven (super dramatic, I know). For you guys to get a glimpse of the versatile lip color, below is a picture of MAC Angel with flash & no flash respectively.

URBAN DECAY NAKED 3 PALETTE – REVIEW

URBAN DECAY NAKED 3 PALETTE

Finally, I took the initiative to purchase the ever-so-popular and HIGHLY anticipated NAKED 3 PALETTE. This is the first Naked palette of my collection, so I am probably a lot more excited than most. I utilized this palette on several occasions, and have received COUNTLESS compliments on how my eye makeup looked. I honestly owe it all to this compact palette. The colors and quality are through the roof. They are ideal, sexy, and feminine, and the rose-gold tones are superb. The palette even comes with a dual ended brush for achieving ravishing eyeshadow looks. Here are two pictures of the Naked 3 palette without and with the flash respectively:

Beauty Review – Giorgio Armani Primer

Hello beauty fanatics! I want to share my opinions regarding the Giorgio Armani Primer. First of all, I love it. I started using this beauty item for about a year now, and haven’t even tried another primer since! While applying this primer, the product effortlessly blends in with your skin, and ultimately feels as if nothing is on your face. This product is very matte, which couldn’t be more perfect for those of you who have rather oily skin (such as myself). This primer also sets a wonderfully smooth foundation to further apply your makeup. As for all designer beauty items, the price tags can be quite steep, but also for all designer beauty items, the quality is outstanding. What primer is your favorite?!

Primped and Polished

I recently purchased a few nail polishes that caught my eye in the store! These colors are essential for every girl’s nail polish collection. The two pink hues are rather similar, but even the smallest color variation definitely makes a difference. The green hues are also necessary for summer, because if you couldn’t tell already, I recently am OBSESSED with green, so of course I had to purchase these two sassy shades. Which one is your favorite?!

Giorgio Armani – Beauty

This is the ULTIMATE foundation for any skin tone/type!

I started using this Armani foundation about 1 year ago, and will never try anything else! It is so light and airy and blends perfectly with my skin tone.  Although it may be a tad pricy, it is an integral investment. Honestly, if your foundation is anything but perfect, try this and you’ll be satisfied. After I put this on every  morning I feel amazing and confident. Also, the coverage is out of this world and I even use it under my eyes to conceal my under-eye circles…Yes, it is that good.

If you’re skeptical about purchasing a full bottle, which will cost you about $60, try hitting up your nearest department store with an Armani counter and ask for a sample. They also offer free makeovers that you can utilize, and they will help you find your perfect match!

Plus, the fact that Megan Fox is the spokeswoman for

Giorgio Armani cosmetics, speaks for itself!
