Congratulations to my beautifully incredible sister and her amazing boyfriend (now fiance) for getting engaged this week.  I love you both.  Thank God for creating you two for each other  :)

Maybelline Vivids Lipstick in “Vibrant Mandarin”


Pixi Fairy Light Solo Eyeshadow in No. 5 “Boho Bronze”

One of my favorite eyeshadows for the season of Spring.

No.7 Stay Perfect Lipstick in “Love red” and “Raspberry”

These lipsticks are amazing.  I’ve finally found my favorite drugstore lipstick. I never thought a lipstick could be so long lasting.  They are so pigmented — the swatches in the last photos are from ONE swatch each.  I hardly pressed the lipstick to my skin, and they came off that vibrant.  In fact, they’re so intense and so long lasting, that you should know what you’re getting into before you apply them.  These things aren’t easy to take off.  To me that is a good thing, but to some people, you may find that quite annoying, especially if you’re the kind of person who prefers to take your lipstick off halfway through parties.  I really love long lasting lipstick, so these are winners in my book. Now if only I had the courage to wear the vibrant red shades more often.  

They don’t smell bad
Vibrant, pigmented, intensely colored
Not really drying (I still recommend moisturizing first)

Pricey for a drugstore product
Hard to remove
Hard to control.  It’s easy to slip and look like the Joker.

Overall, I highly, highly recommend them. I will get more shades soon.
