Do you find yourself constantly reaching for the same products even though you have a lot more options? For August, ‘ thought I’d share some items that I was insanely obsessed with:
|Top: Fully Loaded Mascara by Mattese NYC
L-R: Wet n Wild (The Gilded Age), Wet N Wild Megalast Lipcolor, Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush
Wet n Wild Megalast Lipcolor is a poor man’s answer to MAC. At less than $3, you can get five to six lipsticks equivalent to one MAC (talk about huge savings). To date, I own about ten of these beauties but my top 3 color choices were 913C (nude), C910D (coral), 905D (hot pink). For a separate review on Wet N Wild’s Mega Last Lip Color, click here.
My eye shadow of the month is also from Wet N Wild Color Icon trio palette, The Gilded Age. Again at less than $3, you can build your makeup collection with good quality, richly pigmented eye makeups.
|Think outside the palette. Use these colors interchangeably. No need to follow whether it was meant for brow bone, eyelid or crease.|
Having oily skin, I always have trouble finding a makeup that will last throughout the day. Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush (Natural beauty) is a keeper! The payoff is outstanding. Read separate review here.
|This lasted me a good 8-9 hours. Not bad, not bad at all!|
My mascara go-to is from a cult brand Mattese NYC- Fully Loaded Lengthening and Volumizing Mascara. I like that it really amps up my lashes to a flirty degree. I got this mascara from a local perfume store and found out that it’s exclusively sold in Ricky’s NYC stores in New York City. Fret not, you can order online, click here.
And oh, As I am transitioning to my new online store name (previously Kakalina’s to ilovewinks.com), I needed a new business card-slash- earring card holder. I ordered this online two weeks ago. Here’s what I came up with:
|These business cards are free- just pay for the shipping cost. I paid $8 for 250 pcs.
Try it out, I got these from Vistaprint.
On the side, I have been re-designing my old clothes, check out what I did with an old halter top.
