What’s In My {Lipstick} Bag | Summer 2018

Hey y’all!

I recently re-discovered my love of lipsticks, so I wanted to share with you a few of the favorites that I ALWAYS have with me. Does anyone else have a specific “lipstick” bag that they keep in their purse to hold all of their lipsticks, or is it just me? Although I keep way more lipsticks than this in my bag, I narrowed it down to my 5 favorites to keep this blog post as short & sweet as possible!

Kathleen Lights x ColourPop Dream Team Liquid Lipstick Bundle

Three of my current favorite lipsticks came in the Kathleen Lights x ColourPop Dream Team Liquid Lipstick Bundle! The three shades that this little set comes with are Moon Child, Dreamy, & Rêver.  This trio is the perfect set of lipsticks, and every color is so wearable! Yes, even the orange 🙂 I was really impressed with these, especially since they were my first ever liquid lipsticks from ColourPop! (crazy, right?). I was expecting them to be a lot more drying and not as long-lasting, but it hardly feels like I’m wearing lipstick when you have these on and they last all day! Like, put it on at 6 am, do a chemistry lab & eat lunch, then come home at 4 pm and IT’S STILL ON. Doesn’t look cakey, doesn’t crack, doesn’t do that weird thing where it wears off everywhere but the outline of your lips and it looks like you’re wearing a weird lipliner (does anyone else relate?). Dreamy is a matte rose-ish nude color and looks so pretty! I think I’ve worn this one almost every day this week. Moon Child is more of a light pink-nude gloss, but its so pigmented and has a really pretty gold shimmer to it. Rêver is definitely a pop of color! Ths one is a super matte orange-red, but its so pretty and is one of my favorite bright lipsticks!

Bite Beauty Matte Crēme Lip Crayon in Glacé

Bite Beauty Matte Crēme Lip Crayon in Glacé is a gorgeous dusty-mauve, and is long-wearing, water-resistant, and super hydrating! I love Bite products because they’re all natural and contain ingredients such as agave, orange peel wax, and brown sugar.

Smashbox Be Legendary Lipstick in the shade Audition

The last lipstick that I always like to keep with me is the Smashbox Be Legendary Lipstick in the shade Audition. This lipstick is one of my favorite lipsticks ever because it’s such a gorgeous neutral rose color and is so creamy. It hardly feels like I’m wearing lipstick! This lipstick is so pigmented and stays on all day, so I hardly have to reapply. It works well with natural makeup, no makeup, or a full face of glam.

And that’s a wrap! I didn’t include everything that I keep in my lipstick bag, because that would be way too long of a blog post. These are just a few of the ones I wear the most often, and I hope you love them as much as I do. 

Much Love,

Chloe♥

Sephora Haul!

Hey y’all!

Today is such a bright and sunny day and everything is so happy. I haven’t posted in a while, I know, but I’ll get back to posting regularly soon. Classes have gotten crazy and time has gotten away from me these past few weeks, and since school is my main priority right now, blog posts might be posted at weird times. I’ll get back on track with posting every Saturday soon, I promise! Anyway, this past week I went to Sephora (stress shopping… anyone else do that?) with the intention of getting new foundation but accidentally bought WAY too many things. I decided to write this post telling y’all about the products and my thoughts on each of them!

ESTEE LAUDER Gentle Eye Makeup Remover

As you may know, I have a little obsession with mascara. Taking off mascara every night has really taken a toll on my eyelashes, due to the scrubbing and harsh cleansers. I’m so happy I found this eye makeup remover by Estee Lauder, which takes off mascara and eye makeup (even waterproof!!) so easily and quickly. 

TOO FACED Born This Way Foundation

Y’all already know about my obsession with this foundation. It is so hydrating and hardly feels like you’re wearing foundation at all. I also occasionally mix this with my moisturizer (Clinique Moisture Surge gel-creme) to create more of a tinted moisturizer on days I don’t want or need a lot of coverage. This foundation is infused with coconut water to help replenish the skin’s moisture levels and contains Alpine rose to brighten skin’s appearance. Fun fact: I’ve never purchased the same foundation twice before discovering this foundation. It’s THAT good.

TARTE Wide Awake Eye Set

This set is packed with all of your eye care essentials! It comes with a travel-size Lights, Camera, Lashes Mascara; Maracuja C-Brighter Eye Treatment; and one set of the Pack Your Bags 911 Undereye Rescue Patches, all for only $12. It’s also all vegan! This mascara is so volumizing and lengthening, I only need to use one coat. It is also the perfect size to stick in your purse or bag for traveling, in case of road trip touch-ups. The eye cream is packed with a complex of antioxidant plant extracts, light-reflecting particles, and essential fatty acids to hydrate and brighten under eyes. Unlike most eye creams that I have tried, this one doesn’t feel greasy or heavy, therefore much more suitable for everyday use. Finally, these little eye treatment patches work wonders! One use, and my dark circles, which were seriously bad from a weekend of late-night studying were seriously reduced. Yall, these are magical. 

SEPHORA COLLECTION LashCraft Big Volume Mascara

As some of you may know, I am very particular (and obsessive) when it comes to mascaras. I was planning to re-purchase another Sephora collection mascara that I LOVED, only to find that they didn’t carry it anymore. What was I supposed to do, find a DIFFERENT mascara? No. Way. Luckily, I picked up this one because it was super cute and also only $14 (yes I spent too much money at Sephora, but I’m still on a budget. don’t judge). This mascara also contains jojoba oil, which allows you to build lashes with multiple coats while not flaking, smudging, or clumping. This stuff is seriously good!

URBAN DECAY Vice Lipstick in shade Stark Naked

I have been searching for the perfect nude lipstick for SO LONG, and I have finally found it. This lipstick by Urban Decay is velvety matte but doesn’t feel like I’m wearing lipstick at all. It’s super moisturizing and, unlike most matte lipsticks, don’t dry out your lips or get cakey. It is also packed with so many good-for-your-skin ingredients, such as aloe vera, jojoba, avocado, and babassu oils which help nourish and soften lips. It is also formulated with Illipe butter, which is derived from Malaysian illipe trees and provides long-lasting moisture.  This lipstick is also infused with vitamins C and E, which help to deliver a hint of antioxidants.
