Milani Color Statement Lipstick

Hey friends! Thanks for checking out my blog! Today we’re gonna talk about one of my favorite lipsticks and the best part is, it’s drugstore! I love when I find products that are pigmented, long lasting, high quality and affordable! So let’s jump in.

As well all know, Milani makes some fantastic products. The price point is great and it is all high quality. Not to mention, the colors and shades are to die for! I know I’ve talked about the baked blushes on here before but the foundation, eyeshadow and lip products are all amazing.

One of my favorite products is their statment lipsticks. They’re creamy and soft and pigmented. My favorite color is the Nude Creme. It is the perfect girly, babydoll pink! It goes with everything! I wear it all the time, either plain or with a cute gloss over it. It completes every look!

You can find this at Target, CVS, ULTA and most drug stores for around $6.

5 Reasons to Clean Your Makeup Brushes

Hi friends! Today I’m gonna talk about something we all hate doing…cleaning our makeup brushes. It’s time consuming, it’s repetative, it’s boring and just annoying task. However, it is vital to keep your face clean and makeup brushes in tip top shape. So if you need a little motivation as to why you should clean your makeup brushes, keep reading!

Brushes Last Longer

Using your makeup brushes over and over creates product buildup in the brush. Whether it’s a cream product or a powder it all causes your brushes to get clogged. If you don’t regularly wash your brushes it eventually causes your brushes to break down. Bristles will start to fall out and the metal part will become loose.

Prevents Acne

One of the major causes of acne is bacteria. When you don’t frequently wash your brushes bacteria builds up in the bristles. Bacteria is everywhere; no matter how clean you are you can’t help it it’s just everywhere in the world. Think of it this way, makeup is build up in your bristles, you take the brush and dip it into your blush then apply it to your face. You’re essentially taking bacteria and spreading it all along your face.

Better Application

The day after you wash your brushes don’t you just love the feeling of applying your makeup. Especially eyeshadow! It’s just feels smooth and different. Your makeup just applies better and always looks better. If better makeup doesn’t motivate you to wash your brushes, idk what will 😉

Prevents Germs and Infection

See above…prevents acne. But not only that, if you don’t keep your brushes clean you can develop skin infections. Especially if you share makeup brushes! Pink eye is VERY catchy if you don’t wash away those germs!

Saves You Money

Idk about you but I think of my makeup brushes as an investment. Whether it’s a $50 brush or a $5 brush I like to keep my things for a long time. In the long run if you properly care for your makeup brushes it will save you money! You will not have to keep replacing them!

The Palette I Can’t Stop Grabbing

Hi friends! Hope you’re all having a great week! So today I wanted to talk about one of my favorite palettes. I try to switch it up and grab a different palette or a different color every time I do my makeup. However, I keep grabbing for this one palette…

The Jaclyn Hill Morphe Palette is AMAZING. The colors, the shades, the pigmentation, the formula it’s all to die for! This palette contains  35 fantastic shadows. One of my favorite things about this is the names and descriptions Jaclyn gave to each shadow. Check it out from the morphe website…

Enlight: An out-of-this-world, universal shade for brow bone and inner shadow magic.

Beam: Amp things up with this frosted version of Enlight, it’s great for deeper skin tones.

Silk Crème: Your transitional, creamy-matte crease color with yellow undertones.

M.F.E.O: Peach, matte and cool: made for each other (hence the name)

Faint: Love this princess shade. No matter how fair skin you are, this fiercely frosty shade goes great all over the lid.

Sissy: For the rose-gold queens out there, this super-girly shade was named after my sister.

Little Lady: Confession: I call my sister ‘little lady’ and this is her second fave color. Perfect to rock at the office since it’s not too gold or out there. It’s the perfect shimmery wash of neutral.

Creamsicle: OB-SESSED with this flattering yet daring color. Pop it into the crease to make the color of your eye’s pop.

Butter: Super creamy with a warm, terracotta undertone makes this an amazing shade for your crease color.

Pooter: For those of you not comfortable with super warm colors, this neutral chestnut shade, named after an inside family joke, is for you.

Pukey: Yes, I named a color Pukey. My favorite matte color in the whole palette. SO creamy. SO pigmented. The ultimate warm brown.

Hunts: Linda made this daring, boldly blendable shade happen. I love it because…it’s perfect. The creamiest shade in the palette. My fave shade of all-time.

Firework: Dare I say this is the most shimmering shade? It’s great for all over the lid and for creating a warm, smoky eye. Partner it up with any of the matte orange shades.

Queen: The perfect gold. I have nothing else to say.

Obsessed: I was looking to create a shade for the perfect smoky eye. This took forever to get right, but it’s perfect and I’m totally, you guessed it, Obsessed.

S.B.N.: One of my most-used, all-over-lid colors is this deep, pinky-bronze shade. It creates the perfect, smoky but natural look. S.B.N…N.B.D.

Hillster: God, I love this color all over the lid or on lower lash line. I wanted a good range in this palette, and this is the deepest warm shimmer we have to offer.

Roxanne: I named this after myself (my middle name is Roxanne). That may be narcissistic, but I don’t care. My subscribers know this is my favorite color in the world. I honestly use it every day on lower lash line or outer crease.

Jacz: An actual burgundy with great color payoff. These high-pigmented mattes go through lots of rounds to make them this super creamy.

Buns: This is Linda’s favorite crease color, but it took some time for it to grow on me. We removed it from the palette at least 5 times. I hated it at first, but now…obsessed. It’s a great everyday neutral shade for all skin tones.

Cranapple: A true cranberry shade perfect for all over the lid.

Royalty: I love it so much. The purplest of purples. A badass purple. No undertones. Just shimmery purple (I had to create one) that’s great to layer.

Twerk: The reason this color is in the palette? I hate blue. I wanted to be able to wear an awesome shade of blue and this is it. Bold, fun and totally wearable with major wow factor.

Hustle: For those of you not into warm shades, this is 100% cool with gunmetal, purple undertones.

Meeks: The best bronze out there (and named after one of my best friends, because that girl loves her bronze). Not too metallic, and all ages can rock it whether you’re 14 or 40.

24/7: Completely different formula than the rest of the palette: pressed glitter, baby. Apply with finger, or a very wet brush, for a sophisticated, fresh-from-the-runway look.

Chip: I use this shade all the time to smoke out outer corner and lower lash line. Creamy, smooth and highly pigmented. Win, win, win.

Mocha: SO chocolatey and super warm, perfect for deepening any eye look.

Pool Party: My favorite pop of color ever! Beautiful turquoise with flecks of glitter may seem over the top, but it’s not. It’s super wearable (just like a swimsuit).

Jada: Named after my niece since this is her fave color in the whole world. Very similar to Pool Party, but with a matte spin.

Diva: Bye-bye Christmassy green shades. I so wanted green in this palette, but a neutral one to wear all over lids and layer with warm reds…and not make you think of Santa.

Enchanted: This deep, matte green is Diva’s (and all the other green shades) partner in crime.

Central Park: I wanted every woman and man to have the option of a cool, matte brown.

Soda Pop: We were so excited to get this color perfect. So deep and so dark. You almost think it’s black, but it’s purple. And one of the most complementary shades for any eye color.

Abyss: Matte and black as hell. One of the blackest blacks I’ve seen. So hard to make black rock, but we did it.
