The Lipstick Tag

the lipstick tag

So Chrissy from A Casual Beauty did a lipstick tag and graciously tagged everyone to do it. I like beauty tags so I decided to do this one.

  1. How many lipsticks do you own? I’m going to follow Chrissy’s cue and stick to conventional lipsticks in this answer, so I own 33 actual lipsticks.
  2. What was the first lipstick you ever owned? The first lipstick I ever owned was Fashion Fair Pure Plum(?). I…

Cover Girl Queen ‘Jammin Gem’ Jumbo Gloss Balm

Cover Girl Queen ‘Jammin Gem’ Jumbo Gloss Balm

There are thousands of beauty products to try in the drug stores. I hit up Walgreens several times a month just to see if there’s something new or to grab something that I’ve really wanted to try. Lately I’ve been looking at the gloss balm stick that a lot of brands are coming out with. Revlon has a few but I passed on them to try the Cover Girl Queen Collection Jumbo Gloss Balm.

Glam Glow Youth Mud Tinglexfoliate Treatment Review

Glam Glow Youth Mud Tinglexfoliate Treatment Review

My birthday was last month so I received a Sephora gift card. I decided to spend on the Glam Glow Youth Mud Tinglexfoliate Treatment. This particular product comes in two sizes, a .5oz size that retails for $19 and a 1.7oz size that retails for $69. I purchased the .5oz because I only had a $25 gift card.

NARS Cosmetics Laos Matte Multiple Review

NARS Cosmetics Laos Matte Multiple Review

Francois Nars is my patronus. Ok, seriously, Nars Cosmetics is one my holy grail brands. I haven’t tried everything, but what I have tried I love. So after seeing swatches and reviews of their new Matte Multiple I knew I had to have at least one or two. I snagged a couple a day ago, tried them on, and I’m in love.

ELF Mineral Infused Face Primer (Clear) retails for $6

I’ve been putting off this primer review for weeks because I couldn’t figure out how how to describe what was happening with the product. I wanted to be truthful, but it felt like I was going to beat this thing into the ground because initial tests were making me feel like it sucked. I’ve moved away from that, but let’s start at the…

Jem and the Holograms, original artwork.
I’ll be honest here, I probably used every shade of pink and purple here that’s known to man for this picture.  That doesn’t stop this from being any less than truly outrageous though.  Truly, truly outrageous.
If you would like to purchase this as an awesome 17” x 11” print, feel free to do so at my Storenvy page, and use the discount code DECOPEN for an additional 15% off!  But hurry, that code won’t last forever.

This is amazeballs!

A Few More Game Of Thrones Inspired Eyeshadow Looks

Season 4 of Game of Thrones premieres Sunday April 6 on HBO in case you didn’t already know. I’m terribly excited for its return. I’m so excited that I decided to create three more eyeshadows looks inspired by the house sigils of House Martell, House Tyrell, and House Greyjoy. I created four others in a previous post so be sure to check that out.

And here we go.

The Return: #NoBareLips30 Spring Edition

Bury Me In Red Lipstick 022

The #NoBareLips30 Challenge is the creation of Keiko Kavari. I was introduced to her and the challenge via Twitter last fall and had a blast testing out my lip products and seeing the other ladies (and a couple of guys) showcase theirs.

I posted about the previous NoBareLips30 challenge here but to recap participants in the challenge are basically showing off their lip looks via social media…
