Sorry it’s been awhile since I posted! I have been super busy getting ready for college graduation!

I picked up two of these lip pencils at my neighborhood Ulta. I got the shades Sand Pink and Natural. Natural is a very neutral, plum-brown color and Sand Pink is a bright, blueish pink.

I like Natural because it is close to my natural lip color so this can be used for a lot of different lipsticks and glosses. Sand Pink I like to pair with my MAC Sheen Supreme lipstick in Ultra Darling. Ultra Darling is a more yellow-based pink, but these work well together.  These lip pencils glide on smooth and creamy, and kept my lipstick from bleeding and fading all day.

If you are looking for an inexpensive lip pencil with lots of color options, these are a really good choice. These are my go to lip pencils and I love them! I will definitely purchase these again in the future.

Price: $3.50 (Ulta)

I got two NYX Soft Matte Lip Cremes in Antwerp and Stockholm.  Antwerp is a hot, peachy-pink color and Stockholm is a pinky-nude color.

Both of these lip cremes have a matte finish and are extremely light-feeling on the lips. I got about 4 hours wear before I had to touch these up. These have a sweet scent, like vanilla frosting. The only drawback to these is that if you have any sort of flaking or texture imperfections on your lips, these lippies will show it. Make sure your lips are exfoliated and smooth before applying these.

Overall, I love the color options and staying power of these lip cremes. The matte finish is also a nice deviation from most lip products out there. NYX, I think I’m in love!

Price: $5.99 (www.ulta.com)

Has anyone else noticed the increasing amount of lip products out there with resveratrol, a powerful antioxidant made from wine? Well I have! I first noticed that Bite Beauty, a new cosmetics line, is using this antioxidant in their lip products. I would love to come home with a new Bite Lip Rouge or Vitamin Gel, but my wallet is light these days. How will I try out this new growing trend in lip products? I know how…stop by my friendly-neighborhood Walgreen’s and pick up the DeVine Lip Shimmers Duo!

This duo comes with two colors: Merlot (a deep red) and Rose (a pale, shimmery pink). I am wearing Merlot now, and the texture is very lightweight and moisturizing like a balm with a hint of color. The smell is not super strong and has a faint resemblance of cherry candy. The featured ingredients are: Grape Seed Oil, resveratrol, and red wine antioxidants. On top of that, its 100% natural and cruelty free!

So far, I am liking these lippies and will let you know how they wear this week!

I bought two Covergirl Lip Perfection Lipsticks in Kiss and Darling. Kiss is a very frosty coral and Darling is a cool light pink. The texture is extremely light and it feels like I am  not wearing lipstick at all. I got about 3 hours wear with Darling and slightly less with Kiss (because it’s so frosty). The only thing that I didn’t like was the smell. It has that typical lipstick, synthetic smell, however it quickly went away after 5 minutes.

I bought these at my friendly-neighborhood Walgreen’s for $8 each.
