CURRENT FAVOURITE LIP-GLOSSES
Hey everyone! Today I am going to be sharing with you my favourite lip-glosses✨ Soap & Glory Sexy Mother Pucker in Candy Queen You may know that I am not someone who can handle intense plumping lip glosses – for example I can struggle with the Too Faced Lip Injection. The Soap & Glory Sexy Mother Pucker range does tingle the lips and plump ever so slightly, but it’s nothing crazy and it doesn’t hurt. I love this pale pink shade ‘Candy Queen’ to wear over lip sticks or alone on minimal makeup days. These are so affordable too so it’s an amazing option to try. I also have the shade ‘Plums Up’ which is a beautiful colour too. Too Faced Rich & Dazzling High Shine Sparkling Lip Gloss in ‘Raisin The Roof’ I am absolutely obsessed with this & it couldn’t not be mentioned in my favourite lip-glosses post. It is so beautiful as it has lots of glitters throughout it that actually show up really well on the lips. This is the most ‘glittery’ gloss I have tried and it is such a nice option if you do want that glitzy look. It isn’t sticky compared to other formulas. I love the shade ‘Raisin The Roof’ as it is a bit of a deeper berry tone which has more pigment than some other glosses. It looks nice on the top of lipstick but my favourite way to wear this is on its own. I love the applicator on this gloss – it is flat & picks up a lot of product so you don’t have to keep dipping into the tube. Myleene Klass Lip Glaze in Mirror Mirror I won a set of these lip glazes in a giveaway a bit ago and this is the only shade I ever wore, and I have since got rid of the other shades. I love this one as it a nude shade that is almost clear on the lips with a little bit of shimmer. It looks really wet and glossy on the lips though, so if that’s the look I am wanting I reach for this! I love this on top of pretty much any lipstick too. The only down side is that the doe foot applicator is quite small so you do have to keep dipping back into the tube as it doesn’t collect a lot of product each time. Bare Minerals Moxie Plumping Lipgloss in Rebel Now, I wouldn’t call this a ‘plumping’ gloss as I don’t notice a difference in my lips however I do love this gloss for other reasons! This gloss is stunning on its own or with a lip liner – it is thick (yet not sticky) & pigmented and stays on the lips better than other glosses, so it’s definitely one of my favourite lip-glosses. It has no shimmer or glitter at all (unlike all others on the list) which makes it look super smooth and glossy. I wouldn’t recommend this if you do want that plumped affect but other than that I adore it. Bare Minerals Moxie Plumping Lipgloss in Dreamer Another shade from Bare Minerals but I just had to mention both as they are both some of my favourite lip-glosses! This one is more of a golden peachy nude shade that every collection needs! Unlike ‘Rebel’ this one has shimmer throughout it and I love pairing this with a nude lip colour. Just like ‘Rebel’ it isn’t really plumping in my opinion. Again, it is thick, pigmented and not too sticky. I feel that this shade would work for so many people. That’s it for my 5 favourite lip-glosses! What do you think? Are you a gloss kind of person or do you prefer matte?

FIRST POST ✨
Hello everyone! This is my first post so I thought I would introduce myself and give some background on my skincare/beauty journey! My name is Haley and I am 20 years old. I never really struggled with/or cared about my skin until I got into college and I was completely breaking out, and I figured I should stop putting my foundation on NOT using my fingers 😂. That being said, I have come a LONG way! This photo I tagged some basics that are staples in my makeup routine, both very good for the price and are amazing quality that I have yet to replace! e.l.f. - Lip Plumping Gloss AMAZING! This lip plumping gloss is truly the greatest. Quality is top notch for an even better price! I love how this gloss is not sticky and just makes me feel prettier with my lips all shimmery and plump. 😙 URBAN DECAY - Naked2 Basics Eyeshadow Palette If you’re looking for a simple, long lasting, neutral travel size palette, this is for you! Truthfully, I use this for my eyebrows the most frequently and I have yet to find anything that works they way this does with a light brush of the shadow combined with eyebrow gel for a simple yet flattering eyebrow. 🤨 I will be posting the skincare reviews I have with some oldies but goodies, and some new purchases with my honest opinion! I am SO excited to post, because I hope it’ll help others. This app has already helped me so much and I look forward to interacting with some of you! 🤩

A lipstick you may not have heard of
Bodyography wasn’t a brand I was very familiar with, until last year when then released their fabric texture lipsticks and I won a full set of them in a giveaway. I’ve never been a huge fan of traditional lipsticks because they look too harsh on me, but these are buildable and can be applied for a blotted effect. Bodyography describes them as “demi-matte” lipsticks with a “next-to-nothing naked feel,” which I would say is accurate. They are cruelty free, gluten free, and vegan, and contain coconut and jojoba oils to moisturize. This is the shade “velvet,” and as you can see it’s a deep burgundy that always makes me think of blackberry juice. This is not a color I would normally wear, but since I can apply it and blot it do it looks more subtle, I really like it. It doesn’t last more than a few hours though, but I really don’t mind applying. I wish it were a little more moisturizing, but honestly my lips are always dry and I haven’t found any one product yet that has offered me a solution for it. These lipsticks are $26 each, which is a little pricey in my opinion. However, these will last me forever since I don’t wear them every day, and when I do I only apply a little bit. I recommend checking out Bodyography if you haven’t heard of them!

Long lasting challenge!
The tarte sea color splash lipstick in island life is a long wearing pigment, rich lipstick that’s offered in an array of creamy shades! Color Splash Lipstick offers intense pigment with buttery-smooth conditioners for moisture-rich, long-lasting, matte color that won’t bleed. It’s formulated with antioxidant-rich marine plant extracts to help make lips look firmer, fuller, and smoother. This lipstick is offered in 24 shades so you can switch up your lip color as often as you change your mood! I absolutely love using this lipstick, it is the perfect nude shade and gives you a very comfortable wear! It is so creamy and doesn’t dry out my lips! This product wears fantastic throughout the day! I had this lipstick on for over 12 hours and I eat with it on, I worked most of the day, and I worked out, and through all of that it only lost a little bit of tint! But that is amazing, I definitely expected it to lose some tint considering I eat with it on, which is amazing! My skin is very dry and this didn’t make my lips any more dry, and my skin tone is light medium! tarte - Sea Color Splash Lipstick

Create my own summer lip color 🍒+🍑
Today I want to share a really beautiful combination that I love to do recently. Since there are more sunny days this month, I prefer using shiny lip glosses. And the Water Stain collection of Yves Saint Laurent has been my favorite lip products recently because they are water-enriched, lightweight, fresh, and non-sticky at all. The price is $37, like the regular prices of YSL lip products, and recently Sephora has its VIP sales for 20% off, which is a perfect time to give it a try. Let’s start from the base color #610, named nude underwater, which is a brown nutmeg nude. I usually do two layers, because the color is quite sheer but still buildable. I want to have a peach nude color underneath, so the other color will blend naturally. Then I will use #613 on top. This is called Cascade Bordeaux, which is a deep burgundy shade if I do several layers, and a bright strawberry red if I only do one layer. That is the reason I love this collection because they are sheer and buildable, and you can choose how many colors you want depending on seasons, weathers or moods. In this combination, I will only put #613 on the center of my lower lip and blend it with #610 and repeat it again to have a juicy cherry lip color. Then I will use #610 again only on the edge of my lips and blend it inside to have a soft transition. Comparing with only using #610, I feel this combination can make my lips look more pump, and the color is perfect for summer. Since we have to stay at home, it’s time to do some creativity. I do have fun using my old lip colors to create some new ones, and I think it is a good way to save money too. YVES SAINT LAURENT - Vernis à Lèvres Water Stain Lip Stain

Best gloss ever 💯
My favorite going out gloss ✨✨✨ The COLOURPOP - Ultra Glossy Lip in Champagne Mami is a beautiful warm-toned gloss with golden specks of shimmer, the formula is amazing, slightly sticky which is to be expected for a gloss but it’s not goopy. The shimmer is very fine so it’s not uncomfortable, it adds a slight tint of color which I love for a gloss and I think it would look amazing on many different skin tones; another win for Colourpop!
