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,

5 January Favorites

Hey Y’all!

January has been one of those months that takes forever and yet feels so short. Does anyone else feel this way, or is it just me?  This past week has been somewhat hectic, despite having a few days of canceled classes because of snow. I’m trying to re-focus and get back into my routine of blogging, studying, going to the gym, and all of my other weekly focuses. I wanted to share with y’all a few of my favorite products and clothing items from this month, and I hope you love them as much as I do!

Black Classic Rose Maxi from JessaKae

Y’all… I’m in love with this dress! You have probably seen it so many times on my Instagram (if not, go follow me here). It’s so comfortable and has pockets… what’s not to love? The fabric is so soft and stretchy. I’ve worn this so many times in the past few weeks just for the sake of wearing it because I love it THAT much. It also comes in blush, navy, and ivory! Also, if you want to order this lovely dress from Jessakae, use my code CHLOE10 to get 10% off of your entire order!

Naked Ultimate Basics Palette

This eyeshadow palette has everything needed for so many different matte eye looks. The shades in Naked Ultimate Basics are neutral enough for everything from cool skin tones to olive complexions to darker skin.  It comes with 12 matte shadows that can be worn as light, everyday looms to smokey nighttime looks. It also comes with a double ended brush, one side that is a fluffy blending brush and the other that’s a smaller, denser smudging brush.

Colorful Shoes

I love colorful shoes right now! They add such pop and go with more outfits than you might think. I bought two pairs from Target last week that I’m obsessed with. Bright shoes don’t necessarily need to be worn with bright clothing. If you’re fearful of looking like a child’s finger-painting by overloading on the colors, let your bright shoes be a simple pop of color against neutrals, like in the picture above. 

Too Faced Melted Metal Lipstick in Peony

I’m usually not a fan of bright pink OR sparkly lip colors, but the Too Faced Melted lipsticks are an exception. It applies so smoothly and stays on! This color is so gorgeous when paired with a neutral toned outfit. Love, love, love! 

Aerie City Sweatshirt

I wear leggings and sweatshirts to my 9 am classes a LOT. This sweatshirt from Aerie is perfect for that! It’s long, soft, and super comfy, but still looks cute enough to wear in public : ) Pair this with leggings and cute tennis shoes for the perfect “I woke up like this” outfit for those early a.m classes. 

Alright y’all, that’s a wrap!

Much love,

Chloe♥
