Hi, loves! I am back at it again with another makeup review. I hope y’all like reading them as much as I like writing them because testing out products and hunting for the best prestige and drugstore makeup has become such a passion of mine. I’m even flirting with the idea of investing in some equipment and starting a YouTube channel (eek! stay tuned). Lip products, in particular, are so tricky to sort through because the market is so inundated. And I’m picky because I want so many things out of a lipstick! I want them to be pigmented, long-lasting but not drying, and feel soft and hydrating on my lips. A girl has needs!
I should have known that Burt’s Bees would deliver the most gorgeous and comfortable liquid lips because their lip balm is THE BEST and I always have one in my purse, car, pocket, etc. If a matte liquid lip dries down leaving your lips stiff and flaky and clinging to any dry patches, you’ll have to join me in trying these. These have a soft shimmery, glossy finish which saves me a step in my makeup routine. Plus, the 100% natural liquid lipstick contains conditioning Apricot and Babassu Oil, Shea Butter, and essential fatty acids to maintain soft, happy lips.
Burt’s Bees was kind enough to send over eight shades of their Liquid Lipsticks and y’all, I feel like I’ve hit the drugstore lottery! Burt’s Bees® Liquid Lipsticks glide on smoothly for an intense hit of color. This long-wearing formula delivers all-day moisture leaving lips looking lush and healthy.
My favorite part of this line is that the shade range is perfect for Fall – from the neutrals, to the cool-tone pinks, to the berries – there’s something for everyone. The swatches really say it all! My favorite combo, and what I’m pictured wearing, is 814 Primrose Pool all over the lips and a hint of 805 Pouring Nude layered on top for a bit of an ombre effect. The pop of shimmery nude in the center of my lips is one of my go-to tricks for giving the illusion of a fuller pout.
Each of these pretties are a steal at under $10 at CVS!
Hi, guys! I hope you all had a great weekend. I am getting this post up late-night Monday because I spent the weekend in the mountains with Toyota for a blogger trip and have been playing catch up all day. I can’t wait to share more details about that trip (Cashiers was absolutely stunning!), but today is all about one of my favorite trends for Fall – leopard print.
If you can’t tell by my usual preppy, feminine style, this look is a bit out of my comfort zone. Even though I tend to steer clear of neutrals and opt for colorful prints, it was impossible to resist this perfect leopard blazer. The oversized cut is comfortable and flattering, but the best news is that it’s currently 40% off with code COZY40. For size reference, I’m wearing a medium and typically do in all Goodnight Macaroon pieces. Quick tip – be sure to select expedited shipping because your package will be coming from overseas.
It’s time to get in the Fall spirit, y’all! Over the past week, I have checked off a number of things from my Fall bucket list. On Friday, I went to the Georgia State Fair at Atlanta Motor Speedway and got the most perfect cotton candy I have ever seen. There is so much amazing junk food to choose between at the fair, but I always opt for just pure sugar (lol). Then on Saturday, I took my two nieces to Strawberry Hill for a hayride, pumpkin picking, and getting lost in a corn maze. And if I haven’t tackled enough, we’re going to a haunted house on Thursday and to the Blue Ridge Mountains over the weekend for some leaf peeping. All I’m missing is a trip to the cider mill!
Now onto the fashion… Would you believe this whole look is from Target? AND it’s under $20! I know y’all have seen this adorable t-shirt all over Instagram recently, but can you blame us? For only $15, it’s too cute to resist. It does run a bit small and short, so I sized up to a large which works perfect for tucking into skirts or tying in a side knot. I had to add in some of my favorite trends for Fall – magenta and leopard – because for me, more is more. The skirt runs a bit large. I’m a size 6 and the small fit me perfectly. Let me know what’s on y’all’s Fall bucket lists in the comments!
