NYC City Proof Twistable Intense Lip Color

Untitled-25-820x410

 

Love the new City Proof Twistable Lip Colors from NYC. It feels like a balm going on but the colors are vibrant and feels super smooth. They have a great shine and leave a stain on my lips ensuring I have great color for hours after application. So many great shades and the best part they cost less than $5 each!

Skylar Diggins for mark!

avm006267a40_01.indd

I love that mark is using a female athlete to promote their line. What a great what to show all different types of beauty. Love the message that girls can love sports and being feminine.

Mark’s latest celebrity partner in the mark “10 to Watch” campaign is Skylar Diggins, following previous cover girl’s include Elle Varner, Samantha Barks, Kat Graham, Grace Potter, Rocsi Diaz and Jamie Chung! Having grown up in Indiana—a basketball-crazed state if ever there was one—Skylar undoubtedly has the game in her blood, but it’s her phenomenal ability that runs even deeper and has seriously wowed us!

Skylar Diggins Quote: 
“Being a point guard is all about empowerment—my team relies on me to run the show. I’m really proud to partner with a brand that encourages young women like me to get in the game and give it our all.”

Celebrity Makeup Artist Brian Duprey created this glowing look for Skylar and here’s how to get it:

Skylar’s Cover Look:
Eyes: Sweep mark’s Color Swing Mix It Up Palette in the light brown shade (middle) over the lids up to brow bone. Wet a thin brush and run the dark brown shade (right) along the upper lash line. Next, apply No Place To Run Waterproof Eyeliner in Solar Power along the lower lash lines from mid-eyes to outer corners. Finish the eye, with two coats of Scanda-Lash Go-To Mascara in Blackest Black.

Cheeks: Dust mark’s Blooming Pretty Highlighting Face Powder‘s pink shade into the hollows of the cheeks and the golden shade along the cheekbones to highlight.

Lips: Apply mark’s All Butter Now Lip Treat in Coraltini to lips.

Ipsy Glam Bag March 2014 Review

ipsy-Glam-Bag-March-2014

This post contains affiliate links.

I am only on my second ipsy Glam bag but I am LOVING them. I am still shocked each month that its only $10! This month’s theme is Destination Beauty, my ipsy Glam bag for March contained travel-friendly products to help me create the perfect look. Oh and every ipsy collection comes in a cute little makeup bag this months super cute bag was designed by Klari Reis.  So far the ipsy collections have really top notch products and the little makeup bags are so cute I would probably pay $10 for them alone.

Check out what came in this month’s bag:

14963205
Pixi Flawless Beauty Primer ($9.00 .4 fl oz)
This wore more like a highlighter cream, I love the soft glow it gives my skin. It absorbs well and doesn’t leave my face feeling icky. It has a beautiful peach shimmer and is great for brightening up my skin.

nyx love in rio

NYX Love in Rio eyeshadow palette ($5.99)
NYX Cosmetics Love in Rio eyeshadow palette in Segredos De Giselle . I love the compact and the colors look really cute but this one fell a bit short of my expectations. The shadow was soft and easy to apply but had so little pigment it was barely visible.  I swiped each color for my swatch 3 times to get them to show up. Good for a very natural look, but a little on the pale side.

chelle eyeliner pen

Chella liquid eyeliner in Indigo Blue ($24.00)
By far one of my favorite items in this months bag and I got a full size pen, retail value $24! This pen is amazing its really pigmented and has the most delicate felt tip liner. Even with my shaky hands it was easy to apply and the color lasted all day. I love the midnight blue color, it has enough color to brighten up my eye without being over the top. Can’t wait to try more from this brand.

bareminerals ipsy march 2014

Bare Minerals Marvelous Moxie Get Ready lipstick (.5 oz sample .12 oz $18)
Love this lipstick! I am a huge fan of Marvelous Moxie lipstick, and this might be my favorite shade to date. Its a gorgeous rose shade that is really moisturizing and leaves my lips with a bit of shine.  Since I opened this I haven’t used another lip color I love it so much. I love how great it feels on my lips and the staying power is a huge bonus.

 

I am so happy I signed up for ipsy. I have tried a lot of subscription services but can honestly say this is the best priced, with the best products. This month’s bag was fantastic the retail value not including the cute makeup bag is $45 so you are getting a great deal for $10 .  The NYX Palette wasn’t my favorite but I am really loving the rest of the collection.
