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.

Penn State Weekend

IMG_6441

WE ARE! This weekend I headed to Happy Valley to experience a one-of-a-kind football game. Over 102,000 roaring fans cheered on as their diehard team spirit filled the venue. The number of fans within the vicinity was almost overwhelming, but the sensational energy overpowered the intimidating crowd. Not a cloud drifted by making it the most perfect day for an outdoor event. Our seats were positioned just under the shade shielding us from the harsh sun. Along with my Penn State logo tee, I sported my black classic Tory Burch sunnies, red lipstick (obviously a necessity!) and simple silver, metallic Havaianas flip flops. Since no bags are allowed through the doors (trust me, my biggest struggle of the day was not being able to bring my compact to touch up my makeup!) I could only carry minimal essentials. Besides a huge upset, my day was nothing less than fabulous, and my first venture to State College was definitely one I will never forget.

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:

I hope you all love this simple, put together look as much as I do!!

Black & Blue

Black & Blue
NEWS FLASH everyone: fall fashions are just around the corner. As fall approaches, it’s that time again to transition your everyday summer style, to more autumn-like threads. Yes everyone, this means no more shorts, crop tops, or sandals. As immensely sad as it may seem that summer is coming to a halt, I CANNOT wait to sport more cooler & deeper tones that embody the fall months.

Above is an awesome transitional ensemble that is well suited for the end of summer. The leather pants provide more coverage as the cooler temps dwindle in, yet the sleeveless, jean jacket is still appropriate for the occasional warmer days. And of course, a look is never complete without an overabundance of accessories. The outfit above is paired with an ever-classic Hermes bracelet, Ray-Ban sunnies, uber cute animal print pumps, and a leather Givenchy clutch purse. Ultimately, this look is integral to wear as the weather crawls into cooler conditions.
