Makeup Revolution Drops Kylie-Inspired Lip Kits!

Makeup Revolution Retro Luxe Matte Lip Kit Swatches on Dark Skin

Can’t deal? Then fake it ’til you make it! We’ve all had those moments in life where we had to “fake it” to get through. Fake a smile and good demeanor at work. Fake your brain into thinking you really afford that hot new palette that just dropped. We all fake it! That’s why I wasn’t the least bit surprised when I came across these Kylie Jenner inspired lip kits from Makeup Revolution at Ulta.

Makeup Revolution is known for taking popular high end makeup releases and duping them into cheaper, more affordable versions that’s easily accessible. Some people see it as stealing. Or being a cheap knock off. Makeup Revolution simply believes in providing hard core makeup junkies with the hottest new beauty trends at a price that’s less intimidating to your wallet. You may not like it, but you can’t knock it either!

Neutral Eyes with Tartelette in Bloom

The only thing better than buying new makeup is playing in new makeup! Over the holiday season, I hauled a lot of new goodies including a handful of face and eye palettes that I’ve been dying to put to use. My schedule was insane over the holiday season so I didn’t really get a chance to play with all of my new goodies but now that my days are a little less hectic it’s play time!

MAC Cyber World Lip Pencil Review

MAC Cyber World Lip Pencil

Love vampy lips? Then you NEED the MAC Cyber World Lip Pencil. Yes, it is absolutely necessary. ‘Cause you know you can’t rock a vampy lip without a really good lip liner. Vampy lips are meant to be crisp, clean and super fierce — never sloppy. Your lips need to be contoured for the gods to really bring out that beautiful lip shape of yours. Then, you need to make sure your vampy lip is set and locked in place to remain fierce all day. MAC Cyber World Lip Pencil does all of that.

And it does it so well that I almost never reach for my other vampy liners. Even my old holy grail shades like Nightmoth and Currant have taken the backseat to Cyber World. It’s just soo good!


On Wednesdays We Wear Pink!

Covergirl 425 Bombshell Pink Colorlicious Lipstick and ColourPop Nevermind Lippie Pencil

Ready for some pink fun? Of course you divas are! I know most people like to reserve bright, hot pink lips for spring and summer but I don’t believe in those kinda rules. I’m more of a “no pink lipstick left behind” kinda gal–no matter what season it is. Today, I’m going to bring the rebel out of you too by showing you a really easy trick to bring your bright pinks (or any bright colors) comfortably into fall. All you need is a deep, vampy lip pencil and your favorite pink lipstick.

For this look, I dug up my bright, hot fuchsia pink CoverGirl Bombshell Pink Colorlicious Lipstick and paired it with my deep blackened purple ColourPop Nevermind Lippie Pencil. ‘Cause nothing goes better with pink than purple, right?

I Think I’m Addicted to ColourPop…

ColourPop Nevermind Lippie Pencil, Grunge Lippie Pencil, Leather Lippie Pencil, Feminist Lippie Pencil, Grunge Lippie Pencil, Trap Ultra Matte Lip, Zipper Ultra Matte Lip, Coconut Super Shock Shadow, Nillionaire Super Shock Shadow

Hi, my name is Fancie and I think I’m addicted to ColourPop. I just ordered some goodies a couple of weeks ago and yet here we are again with even more goodies. The worst part? I may or may not have placed another order last night for a couple of the new Ultra Matte Lipstick shades and other goodies. Le sigh. It’s just so easy to get wrapped up in ColourPop!

I’ve gotten so used to paying over $17 for lippies and $15 for eyeshadows that when I finally discovered how creamy their Lippie Pencils and Stix were and how pigmented, bouncy and fluffy their shadows and cheek goodies are I was all over that ‘ish. All over it. 

What’s in My Workbag

What's in my makeup bag

It’s been a little while since I’ve done a “what’s in my bag” kinda post but I find them fun and interesting so I figured I’d update ya. I’m pretty much always at work so I very seldom carry a purse these days. Which is ironic because I ended up buying a few handbags that were on sale at Aldo. Yes a few. Three to be exact. I know, that’s completely insane but they were all half off and I had been dying to get my hands on one in 2 colors for months so I went for it. I ended up grabbing the New Hook and Imaal bags for $30 a pop. So I guess I better start carrying one again now, huh?

Anywho! I’m currently sporting my Bobbi tote to work so I’ve popped my makeup bag inside to keep my essentials organized and ready to go for when I’m in a rush. Which is always. Here’s what I keep inside at the moment:
