Cult Classic…Clinique’s Black Honey Lipstick

The desire for fall to hurry and tie on her running shoes on and sprint into my life ASAP has motivated me to start scouring my closet and makeup train case to see what items I can’t wait to break out for fall. While I was doing that, I spotted one of my favorite lipsticks EVER, Clinique’s Black Honey Almost Lipstick.

It’s a cult favorite thanks to its ability to provide the most complimentary sheer wash of just bitten red hue to practically any complexion or tone. Although it’s sheer, it can be buildable, but I love the light shiny sheer look. However, the fun part is that when you first look at the lipstick, it looks almost black, hence the black honey name. Major bonus, its probably one of the moisturizing lipsticks you will ever encounter…SERIOUSLY!

No, that's not a bruise or burn mark! See how sheer it is with one swipe?!

Off topic, but I never thought I had full lips until I started to take pictures of myself. To think of all the money I wasted on lip plumpers growing up! Not to mention, the burning tingling sensation that practically all lip plumpers possess. *gives the finger to Lip Venoms*

Collecting Creme of Nature?!

I’ve never been one to fancy just one brand, especially when it comes to shampoo and conditioner. However, over the past couple of month, Creme of Nature has been my go-to shampoos and conditioners. Since Creme of Nature offers gaggles of products in multiple lines, I  don’t have all the counterparts to the products I’ve been mixing and matching.

I wish I could give you all an indept review of each of the items, but to be honest, they all work awesome on my hair, because they all strengthen, moisturize, and overall make my hair soft and manageable. I plan to try other lines from Creme of Nature, because I’m loving them hardcore right now!

Revlon ‘Fiercely’ ‘Pop’s MAC’s ‘Poodle’

As of recently, I’ve had a love/hate relationship with MAC products, especially with their lip glosses. Keep reading for more!

What I love about their glosses is that they have a wide range of shades,  but I’ve noticed that in the past few new items and collections that they’ve gone glitter and shimmer crazy. Seriously, those dazzleglasses could guide ships to shore!

Plus, the gooey consistency has been getting on my nerves, even with my go-to Pink Poodle gloss.

So, I’ve been experimenting with other brands and since Revlon is hands down my favorite drugstore brand I just knew that I could find a simpler substitute for my precious Poodle.

The first gloss that was very comparable to Pink Poodle was Revlon’s Fiercely Fuchsia. It’s basically the same color of Pink Poodle, but without the gold speckles that have recently started to annoy me. The consistency is thick and opaque, but not sticky! Awesome.

The next gloss that I got was one that I kept searching random Walgreens around Memphis for, but couldn’t find it and eventually gave up a couple of months ago. However, a couple of weeks ago, I finally found it where I seem to find all the drugstore cosmetics I want now…at Kroger!

I’ve been wanting Revlon’s Super Lustrous in Pink Pop from their Limited Summer Collection that included 3 colors, but Pink Pop was the one that got my heart fluttering when I saw it swatched all over Youtube.

Pink Pop is very reminiscent of MAC’s cremesheen in Loud and Lovely, but not as pigmented or thick which I don’t mind one bit.

To be honest, I’ve recently started to get back into makeup after a few months of not really caring about getting the ‘It’ beauty of the moment. I think it can become to overwhelming when their is a new collection or limited item coming out every week from different lines, not just MAC. However, I think this break did me some good and I’m ready to start building up my makeup collection again. I have a lot catching up to do!
