Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick Spicy Dupe from the Drugstore

I don’t know about you but I am craving spring in the worst way.  It doesn’t feel like it yet here in New England, but a part of me hopes that if I pretend it’s Spring then it will hurry up and get here (like a “if you build it it will come” kinda thing).  One of my favorite Spring looks is a bright lip, and as much as I love a red pout, sometimes I like to change things up.  I’ve recently had a thing for a bold orange lip.  After seeing the ABH Lip Color in Spicy all over Instagram I knew I had to try it.  Unfortunately the formula is so dry my lips look like a desert when I wear it.  I set out to find that shade in a more comfortable (and affordable) formula… and I think I’ve found it in the Milani Amore Matte Lip Creme in Flame.  So check out my side by side comparison to see a possible Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick Spicy Dupe….

Drugstore Lip Gloss Reviews | The Search for a Long Lasting Drugstore Lip Gloss

I have a confession… I don’t like lip gloss.  I used to wear it all the time, but I never really liked it.  I just didn’t realize at the time that there were other options.  Now with the abundance of lip options, including my favorite liquid lipsticks that last through almost anything, I had forgotten about glosses completely.  Now that lip gloss is making a comeback I decided to test a bunch of them to see if I could find one that I liked.  I’m starting with some affordable ones and bringing you some drugstore lip gloss reviews in the search for a long lasting drugstore lip gloss…

Best & Worst Lip Liners Review & Try On | Drugstore & High End

I used to be obsessed with lip liners.  Back in the 90s when I first started learning about makeup, no one in their right mind would wear even lip balm without lining your lips first (okay maybe that was just me).  I would wear liner by itself, or under a gloss.  It was a daily staple.  Then one day it seemed lip liner disappeared.  No one used it anymore, and it was marked as an “unnecessary” step in your makeup routine.  Now, you can blame the current 90s trends, the makeup industry, or even Kylie Jenner, but lip liners are back in a big way and I could not be more excited!  So that’s why I have collected a ton of them and I’m bringing you this Best & Worst Lip Liners Review & Try On of Drugstore & High End brands…

High End & Drugstore Mascaras Review II

You could say I have a bit of an obsession with lashes.  They make even an almost bare face look glamourous.   If you’ve watched any of my other mascara reviews then you know I am very picky about my mascara formulas.  I’ve tested SOOO many, but I’ve collected even more.  Some were sent to me, some are free samples, some are new to my collection, and some were requests/recommendations.   So I’m bringing you a High End & Drugstore Mascaras Review Part II….

Raspberry Almond Protein Smoothie Recipe | Vegan, High Fiber, Snack on My Low Carb Diet

Last week I updated you on my fitness journey and my need to go on a low carb diet.  It’s been a challenge for me, and I’ve been falling into afternoon energy crashes because I’m consuming less sugar.  So this week I wanted to share with you my Raspberry Almond Protein Smoothie Recipe.  It’s a Vegan, High Fiber, High Protein snack that I use as an afternoon pick-me-up on my new Low Carb Diet…

Do you have a favorite smoothie recipe?  What is your favorite afternoon pick-me-up snack?

Note: I’m not strictly vegan.  I’ve actually had to add more animal products to my diet to cut carbs and keep my protein at a healthy intake.  Vegan diets just don’t work for me and my goals, but if I can do a vegan meal at least once a day it makes me feel better. If a vegan diet works for you, because of health or morality, then great.  But everybody is different, so you need to listed to what feels right for your body.

Bésame Cosmetics Cake Mascara Review

I’m trying out cake mascara for the first time.  If you’re not familiar, cake mascara has been around for centuries, but has been over shadowed by more modern mascara formulas.  Bésame is a company that is bringing back vintage inspired makeup products.  So when I saw their cake mascara I knew I had to try it.  It’s usually sold out at Sephora, so I had to wait until it was back in stock.  So I finally get to bring you this Bésame Cosmetics Cake Mascara Review….
