Shade of the Day

Shade of the Day- Dragon Girl

I hope you have had a wonderful weekend so far. I was finally able to relax and get some much needed sleep. I dragged my husband to the movies today to watch Cinderella. Best movie ever!!! I didn’t have much time to get ready this morning so I did a simple look with a pop of color (my go-to look).

Today is a very special shade of the day because it features my FAVORITE lipstick of all time! Every time I can’t decide on a lipstick to wear I ALWAYS reach for this one. It’s the perfect shade of red with a tint of pink and a blue undertone.

The NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencils are one of my favorite lipsticks. They are very easy to apply, perfect when you’re on the go. The only negative is having to sharpen them. Dragon Girl is my favorite color but I also recommend Damned, Mysterious Red, and Train Bleu.

Shade of the Day- African Violet

Ok so maybe I am over deep reds and plums. I am sooooooooo ready for spring! The weather here in Seattle has been beautiful lately so I decided to try out the Sephora Cream Lip Stain I mentioned in this post. This one is in the shade 12 African Violet. This color is so gorgeous, it screams spring and summer. It’s a beautiful pink violet.

IMG_0044Sephora reformulated and came out with new shades not long ago. I have a couple of the old formula and I wasn’t really impressed. I felt they transferred a lot and became quite clumpy after a while. I was a little nervous how this one was going to wear but I ended up being SUPER impressed. I had it on my lips for about 7 to 8 hours and it was perfect! These are a little more moisturizing than the older formula and they do not clump AT ALL! I ate twice and the color held up very well. It did transfer a little but nothing too serious. I went to Sephora and they finally had Marvelous Mauve in stock so I purchased it. I would recommend a lip liner to prevent any feathering. I wore Make Up For Ever’s Lip Liner Perfector. It’s a colorless lip liner so it’s perfect for any lipstick!

These lipsticks are a must have. So go get chu some!

Happy Sunday!

Today I am wearing Sonia Kashuk’s Velvety Matte Lip Crayon in Poppy Nude. These instantly reminded me of the NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencils. This shade is a bright red orange. It does have a velvet texture and applies very easy on the lips. It lasted all day so I am super impressed! This color is beautiful and for less than $8 it’s a must have! I definitely want to buy more. They have 8 other shades. If you like these then you’ll love the NARS.

Shade of the Day- Charlotte

Today’s lipstick of the day is the NARS Audacious lipstick in Charlotte. I’m soooooo ready for Spring but I’m not ready to say goodbye to my dark red and berry lipsticks! This color is described as an “oxblood burgundy.” I don’t really have anything else like it. It’s a nice deep red with a blue undertone.

These lipsticks have a satin, semi-matte finish. They feel nice on the lips and aren’t drying at all. They are so opaque all you need is one swipe! This color lasts a good 5-6 hours and leaves a good stain. Even though the price tag is a bit hefty ($32), I’d say they are worth it! I also suggest trying out Anita.

Oh and no liner needed with this baby!

Happy Sunday!
