The lipstick container itself is sleek and all types of gorgeous!
This is a makeup junkies Must Have plum lipstick on our vanitys!
This collection is out of this world pigmented lipsticks! They’re moisturizing, creamy, nourishing and the staying power is ridiculously long! A good 6 hours+ and it leaves a great stain. Have you had another lipstick last that long?
There’s 23 different shades so you’ll find the perfect match for you.
I am talking about the Red Apple Lipstick brand! They were awesome enough to send me a lipstick and a lipgloss to try out.
If you keep up with me, you should know I never leave the house without some lipstick on my lips.
I have several lip products in my purse and pockets.
The lipstick they sent is in the color New York and the lipgloss is in Honey Badger.
Before I opened the New York lipstick, I thought it was going to be a red lipstick. When I think of New York, I think of the The Big Apple and Red comes to mind. I was surprised to see it as a nude shade. Nude is the big color for this Spring. You’ll see Nude collections everywhere this Spring.
First, let me tell you that these are Gluten, Paraben, Toxin, and Soy FREE! Made in the USA and NO Questions asked 160 day Return Policy!
The lipstick is super moisturizing and pigmented just right! There’s no nasty tasting to it either.
It just glide on my lips! I also wore it without lip liner. You can tell by the pictures how glossy the lipstick is. This I seriously the most moisturizing lipstick I’ve worn. I kept finding myself rubbing my lips together because they were so smooth and moisturized.
The Honey Badger lipgloss was a perfect shade for the New York lipstick. It has a minty taste to it, so of course if you’re like me, you’ll keep rubbing your lips together and lick them. It’s designed to sooth and strengthen your kissers!
Ready for a close up??
You can wear them alone or together.
Here’s a swatch of both and you can tell how moisturizing they are.
You don’t need to prep your lips with balm before applying these. It’s already built into them.
I even wear them while I run. Right now its still breezy and chilly and running 4 miles dries you out. With these on, my lips didn’t dry out. Excuse how I look, but just like I said…..I just ran 4 miles.
If you’re health conscious and you’re looking for perfect moisturizing lip products, head over to Red Apple Lipstick and give them a try! Like I said earlier, their return policy is ridiculously generous!
MAC Cosmetics has outdone themselves this time with the NEW Viva Glam Rihanna!
This shade goes well on ALL skin tones! Meaning, EVERYONE!!
This is the staple of all lipstick!
I bought two just in case it sold out. I will be going back to get more though. I don’t want to run out of this.
This is the Fiercest of Red lipsticks and who better to represent it other than Rihanna!
This is just a little too fierce to wear in my military uniform during work, but I put on MAC Diva first then top it off with this Viva Glam Rihanna to make a perfect mixture. I call it Rihanna the Diva!
I’ll do some photos of that lipstick mix this week.
But onto to reason we’re here……. Viva Glam Rihanna!
I’m absolutely in LOVE with this shade.
It’s a bold fiercely red frosted lipstick. There’s also a lipglass, but the lipstick itself is moisturizing and bold enough for me to not have to wear the gloss.
The great thing about the MAC Viva Glam collection is that, every cent of the selling price of VIVA GLAM Rihanna goes toward helping women, men and children living with and affected by HIV/AIDS. Limited-edition, soft-touch red packaging features RiRi’s signature.
There’s that Limited-Edition phrase…….If you haven’t jumped in your vehicle yet to go to the MAC counter or ordered online, DO IT NOW before they’re GONE. Actually, just wait a few minutes, because I have to place an order myself!!!
I’m Filipina with a MAC NC 30-35 shade.
So this is what it looks like on me. Now mind you, I don’t have the best camera. I seriously need a new camera to take some awesome clearer photos to post here. So, if y’all got the hook up…..Help your girl out!!! I’m jus’ sayin’!!!!
Yes, I love to be goofy.
But I’m just so freaking happy to have this lipstick gem!
I think I’ve mentioned this but just in case I haven’t……..I LOVE HAVING VIVA GLAM RIHANNA!!!
I don’t know how MAC is going to up the ante from this shade.
Rihanna has collaborated with MAC before and some people are so over it already, but I’m glad they’re sticking with her. Why mess up a good thing! It’s obviously working!
This shade is an epitome of the fierceness Rihanna!
Hands down the BEST Viva Glam to date!
Do you have Viva Glam Rihanna in your makeup stash yet??
I think to end this year, I’ll show you my womans cave, aka Makeup storage and my own domain.
Now, I’m not going to go through all my makeup products in detail because this will turn into a days or two post to write and read. I may do a post on each individual drawer at a later time. Comment below if you would like that.
(Be forewarned, there will be lots of pictures)
On to the WOMANS CAVE!
It took me almost two days to transform this room into my own domain.
I have my desk with my desktop computer, my vanity desk with makeup storage, and a makeup storage container.
I bought my makeup storage container from Amazon. There’s a link on my blog to the right on the page.
I bought my vanity desk off of Craigslist and I found the computer desk on a curb across the street from my friend’s house and I just repainted it white. I couldn’t believe that they were getting rid of it. There is absolutely nothing wrong with it.
So onto my makeup storage container……
It has 10 drawers, a metal top, and is rollable. Is rollable even a word?
I organized it by how I put on my cosmetics in order by drawer.
On top I have some perfume, face serum, my Hello Kitty globe, and an e-reader.
The 1st drawer I have some face lotions/creams and face sprays.
The 2nd drawer are my face/eye primers, concealers, and eyebrow products.
The 3rd drawer consists of my many different foundations and BB creams. I can never just find one product to use for a perfect shade. I mix and dabble in different ones.
Next is my contouring and highlighting drawer. After I put my foundation on, its time to contour and highlight my face.
After contouring and highlighting, I move into my blush drawer.
Then the next 3 drawers are for my eyes.
Single eyeshadows, then eyeshadow palettes, then the eyeliner/mascara drawer.
The next drawer is part of my lip product collection.
If I’m ever in a rush, I never leave my house without something on my lips. So, I think thats why I have a tons of lip products.
The last drawer is just miscellaneous things.
Now on my vanity desk top, I have the rest of my lipsticks and lipglosses, a mirror, my makeup brushes, a cute 3 drawer Hello Kitty container, and a quick everyday tray of products.
The 1st drawer from my vanity desk is of some eyelash products.
The other two drawers just has some makeup bags and hair products.
On my computer desk right now, I have the Zoya Spring 2014 Naturel nail polish collection. I’ve been playing with this set since I received it. By far, the best nail polish collection I have to date.
I have my full nail polish collection in my master bath. I’m hoping to get a nail polish rack to put on my wall. I’ve seen some really nice ones and my collection continues to grow.
So there’s my womans cave.
I still have some things that I want to get like the nail polish rack, a really nice camera for taking better pictures, and a laptop to blog on the go.
I hope you enjoyed and probably got some ideas of ways to do your domain.
Until next time…..
