Wearing Lip Paint i Fancy

These liquid lipsticks are awesome!  The formula is so saturated so you’ll get lipstick like color with the ease of a liquid.  I really like how the matte formula doesn’t look drying like most of the other brands I’ve tried.  These have a doe foot applicator which applies it really well and even.  I really was impressed with the applicator.  For summer I’m definitely loving the vinyl because it’s more summery with the finish and the color I picked, but both are excellent!  Next on my list is Cozy.

Happy Valentine’s Day!  What’s more fitting of a post for Valentine’s Day than a review of the Love, mark. Bath and Body collection with it’s super cute and Valentine’s Day appropriate lip print packaging!?

Love, mark. Whipped Up Body Butter and Handcream

Word Of Alicia:  I think this limited edition scent couldn’t of come at a better time, it’s that perfect mix of winter and pre-spring in my opinion.  I like that’s its a little sweet, a little warm and a little fresh.  I think the pink sugar crystals are the top note and as it settles the strawberry and peach linger.  As the days grow longer we want to lighten and brighten and this fragrance does exactly that.  As far as formula goes you know that Whipped Up Body Butter is my absolute favorite!  My skin gets so dry and itchy in the winter and this severely helps that.  As far as the hand cream goes a little goes a long way, use too much and you can get a little tacky.  The hand cream is 3.4 fl oz so that’s a pretty big tube that will last you a long time and for only $6 that’s the best bang for your buck.

All Bundled Up Fall Exclusive

Word Of Alicia:  Usually anything with musk or amber I tend to shy away from but this one is different.  It isn’t too overpowering just adds a nice warmth.  The crisp pear keeps it fresh.  It’s really the perfect bath and body scent for this time of year, like the crisp fall air with a little warmth of sweater weather.  I really like how it’s light enough to layer perfume over too.  I’ve been wearing the new So Very Sophia from Avon paired with it and it’s just the perfect base.  Top pick by far is and will always be the Whipped Up Body Butter.  This is my favorite formula from a moisturizer from any brand.  It’s super rich and luxurious and really moisturizes.  It’s like a little spa treatment with every swipe.  I would definitely recommend this limited edition collection as a must have for fall.  Even better, you can get it for FREE!

WORD OF ALICIA:

I definitely would recommend this as your new bronzer!  First off it’s a super stunning package and design.  I love the shell design and its a decent amount of product for only $16.  That super pretty sparkle however is just on the surface, which is kind of a bummer (and biggest con) but honestly I like matte bronzers better anyhow.  This isn’t a true true matte it has the tiniest amount of shimmer.  There is a lot of shimmer here on my face because it was that first swipe of that top layer.  If you never quite liked Glowdacious because it’s too shimmery then you’ll like this one.  I like that this one isn’t orange at all (even though my pic kinda leans orange but that’s my camera settings) and it isn’t too muddy.  I’ve used it to effectively contour, worn just on the tops of my cheeks, and on any areas I want to look sun kissed.  It met all my expectations.  Wear time is nice as well.  If you want to instantly look like you’ve taken an Maui vacation this is the bronzer to do it!

Mani Monday: Turquoise and Nude Nails

Turquoise and Nude Mani

Turquoise and Nude Mani

Coming straight off my turquoise accent obsession today’s Mani Monday is nothing but fitting, especially for summer.  Ever since I got the mark. Nail This Look Polish and Ring Set I’ve basically been wearing the shade Seafoam non stop (as seen here and here).  It pairs well with everything from yellow to pink to blue to nude and more so no surprise I’m still wearing it.  Only this time with beige, Avon Barefoot Beige and a nude halo, Julep Ginger on my ring finger.

Usually my summer go-to is the brightest pink I can find but this year I’m all about the turquoise, mint and blues!  Lucky for me they’re hot this season (as seen here!)  Plus, they play well with my mark. Sparkle in A Snap Bracelet and Avon Signature Boyfriend Watch!  Shop these exact shades and accessories at my eBoutique and shop Julep here.
