Happy Lunar New Year!  I’m kinda missing the parade that used to pass by my College Ave appt in State College on this festive day.  So I guess I’ll celebrate with an Asian influenced OOTD.

Lip Of The Week: Avon True Color Nourishing Lipstick in Mellow Melon

Lip Of The Week: Avon True Color Nourishing Lipstick in Mellow Mellon

Lip Of The Week: Avon True Color Nourishing Lipstick in Mellow Mellon

The call me mellow yellow… or melon…either way Avon True Color Nourishing Lipstick in Mellow Melon is my crush for the week.  Avon recently launched their new Avon True Color Nourishing Lipstick line to replace Ultra Color Absolute (my favorite) so I decided to pick one up.  I got the Mellow Melon shade to replace my melon shade in the Ultra Color Absolute line.

Word On Mellow Melon:  At first I thought my winter skin could not pull this shade off and was thinking I had to save it for summer, however with the right blouse and some good blush I proved myself wrong.  I’ve been wearing this shade pretty much all week and I don’t see it stopping when the week ends.  I think it will be even better when I have a tan.   It’s an excellent melon color replacement for my old melon shade.  As far as the formula it is extremely nourishing like a balm, not as shiny as the Ultra Color Absolute Line, more of a creamy finish.  These are only $5.99 so I ABSOLUTELY will be buying more shades, next on my list Berry Sangria!

Lip Of The Week – Avon Perfectly Matte in Ravishing Rose

Lip Of The Week – Avon Perfectly Matte in Ravishing Rose

Somedays all you need is lipstick, today is one of those days.  It’s been a rough week in addition to being dark and stormy so I decided I needed a bright raspberry-esq lip, enter in Avon Perfectly Matte in Ravishing Rose.

Not only is it a matte formula that is actually comfortable to wear but the staying power on these perfectly matte formulas is pretty legit.  I re-applied once after lunch and I really didn’t need to I just wanted to.  I needed the pick me up 🙂 and sometimes just the act of putting on lipstick can change your frown upside-down!

Obiv I’ve personally been on a matte lipstick kick… as seen here and here.  The matte lip has been here for a hot minute and isn’t going anywhere so might as well join the party.  One of my FAVORITE formulas is the mark. Lipclick Matte.  It’s a little more luxurious than the Avon ones I’ve been swooning over, however it’s only available in 3 shades.  Pretty much your must have of shades, a red, a bright pink and this deep purple, Vixen.

We’ve had a change in weather here, grey dark rainy and in the low 60’s so a deep purple lipstick seems appropriate.  Plus it also looks really chic with spring pastels too!  Plus it’s the shade Lucy Hale has been wearing for like the last 6 months on all her press junkets.

Word On Vixen:  Get this shade.  The formula is moisturizing not drying.  The vampy shade isn’t so vampy it’s unwearable, it’s a good deep plum shade that will work with most skin tones.  The cap design is awesome with a magnetic closure, a click closure if you will!  And for only $11 it’s still cheaper than a lot of designer brands with designer brand quality.  You can shop Vixen at http://www.youravon.com/aliciahessinger AND get FREE shipping!

‘Cuz that uptown funk gonna give it to ya.  Well, if the funk isn’t then this Avon Beyond Color Lipstick in Uptown Pink is.

The Word On Uptown Pink: Maybe it’s early but Valentine’s Day inspiration is creeping in on me with pinks, reds and the like.  I literally wore this mauve pink shade everyday this week.  That could also be that I think it looks best with a simple makeup look and that’s all I’ve been motivated to do lately.  Think concealer, highlighter/blush, lots of mascara and a little eye liner.  Super quick and the trendy lip shade steals the show so you look put together.  Speaking of trendy it kinda mimics the upcoming Rosie shade from Kylie Lipkit only with a satin finish so more wearable.  And a fraction of the cost… Beyond Color lipsticks are on sale for 2 for $7.99!  (shop it here)

Happy National Lipstick Day! (and Get A Free Lipstick and Lipgloss!)

Today is National Lipstick Day and in honor I thought I’d share my lip favorites lately and a FREE Lipstick offer!

Summer Time Go-To:  Avon Ultra Color Absolute Lipstick in Creamy Melon (NOW ONLY $4.99). This formula wears more like a glossy balm and has a bit of shine and extremely nourishing and I love it.  The easy melon coral shade is super flattering for an every day shade during the summer.

Spicy Shade:  Avon Ultra Color Indulgence Lip Color in Chocolate Rose (NOW ONLY $4.99!) Brown shades are super on trend right now but this one is a little spicy with some red undertones.  This kind of shade is  a great way to wear a bold shade without being to loud.

{Sidenote:  obiviously I’m really digging this mark. Box Set Necklace ($24.00).  It just always goes!  All 3 pics were taken on different days and yes I wear black that often}

Red Hot Lip Color – mark. All Butter Now in Fired Up ($11).  This red is the perfect summer red.  Because the formula is more a nourishing balm you wouldn’t expect the color pay off to be so much but it’s amazing.
