Since starting this blog , I have periodically posted items I have available for sale, but had to way to accept payments or get customers information. I didn’t want to bombard my blog with post of stuff I had for sale either. Soooooooooooo I decided to set up an online store. A place where all my lovely’s can shop all the awesome thing available from Givemelipstick. I want to thank all my awesome followers and visitors for their support and will be creating a coupon code soon for you Luvs. Please go visit my store check it out, give me feed back, tell me what items you like or would like for me to carry and I will try my best to accommodate. Thank you again Luvs. Currently I don’t have every single item up on the site but I will be adding the day and coming weeks. So please be patient and spread the word!!!!!
This Sunday from 10am-6pm
Trader’s Village of Houston
7979 N Eldridge Pkwy, Houston, TX 77041
If you live in Houston,Tx-Come check me out. I will be selling makeup, jewelry and watches…
I went to Target the other to get some household items, but as usual I found myself in the makeup isles. My Target has expanded its makeup department by adding some new brands and increasing there existing ones. One of the new brands they have is Shea Moisture. Shea Moisture, to the best of my knowledge was mostly hair and body care. But now the have makeup that ranges from light to deep dark shades of foundation and bronzer as well as eyeshadow, blush, lipstick and gloss. I opted just to pickup 2 eyeshadows.
They were $4.99 each and are pan only. Which I did know , but I assumed they were magnetized and could just go in my Mac palette. NO, you have to purchase the container or a palette separately. I think for the individual eyeshadow compact it’s $1.99 and the palette was $5.99 or $6.99. This is kind of annoying, but if I love them then I will make it work.
I also picked up some Sonia Kashuk makeup. Sonia Kashuk, as far as I know is exclusive to Target and very popular for there good quality inexpensive makeup brushes. They also have makeup. Unfortunately I haven’t had a lot of luck in the makeup department with them as far as foundation, concealer goes due to limited color range. But I have had success with there blush and brozners. So I went ahead and picked up a blush/ bronzer duo and a glow powder.
Both are beautiful , especially the blush duo. The glow powder may look chalky in the swatch above but it is not. I swatched it heavily to photograph it. Iam. Were both today and will upload pics of it on me later in a review.
Thanks Luvs for stopping by and all of your support. Dont foget to follow this blog and follow Givemelipstick on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and now Tumblr
As promised here are swatches of my Mac lipstick collection. I notice while swatching that quite a few of my Mac lipsticks are limited edition (Sorry)… so what I will do is search through my entire lipstick collection in an effirt to find dupes for the LE lipsticks.
I will also add lip swatches. Lip swatching is taxing on the lips, but bare with me. I will do whatever it takes for my lovely #lipsticknation.
There are all my purples. Favorites are Instigator, Up the Amp and Heroine.l
Pink favorites are Candy Yum Yum, Happy Go Lucky and FLAT OUT FABULOUS. If you do not own Flat Out Fabulous- Then you must buy it today. ..It will change your life..lol
I dont have many red MAC lipsticks and really dont need another. I actually have 2 Riri Woo’s. That is the only lipstick I had to ever back up. Just like Flat Out Fabulous is everything for the pinks, Riri Woo is LIFE for the reds. I know that Riri Woo was limited edition, so unless you willing to pay the Ebay Monster $45 for Riri Woo.. I eou l d suggest getting Ruby Woo. RIRI Woo’s paternal twin.
These I guess I would categorize as other. To be quite honest none of the shade really work on me on their own. The only color of the bunch I have wore alone that work for me was bronze shimmer. It is very natural, summertime effortless on me. The rest of the color need to be mixed with another color or liner to look well on me. That the conclusion. Lipswatches coming soon!!!
Thanks for stopping by. Let me know what are some of your favorite mac lippies. Also follow me on Twitter and Instagram @givemelipstick AND like me on Facebook at Givemelipstick. <3 <3
Today on my lunch I decided to revisit my local beauty supply in search of these new lippies from Ruby Kisses. And there they were in all their glory
They were $3.99 each. The whole collection consists of 12 colorful lip lacquers, I picked up 8. These are opaque like a lipstick and shiny like a gloss.
They go on mostly evenly, except for the yellow (yellow makeup products are always difficult). Overall these are fun and great quality for $4.
These are awsome. I would recommend picking up a few.
Product- La Femme
Where to get it- http://www.makeupmania.com
Price- $2.87!!! (Pan only)- Two dollars and eighty seven cents!!!!
$3.50 – In container
$40- The Palette Lab – 12 blushes of your choice put together in a 12 pan magnetize palette. Each blush is labeled and you can name your palette. !
These blushes are extremely pigmented and could easily double as an eyeshadow. I purchased 2 palette labs ( pictured above is just 1 palette). Since getting these I have not purchased any Mac blushes or other pricier brands. I would totally recommend these. .. and volume 2 swatches are to come soon.
