Lipstick Collection

I have gone through my beauty stash because I do not consider myself having a collection. I’m not into makeup much at all. Not foundation, although I love MAC’s studio fix powder plus foundation which I’d purchase again for $27. Then there’s eyeshadow which I’m far from being a pro at applying and I just keep it around to have around. When it comes to lipstick, I am quite a sucker. I have had to go through and purge my collection, but I’m happy with what I have kept. Be sure to click the links highlighted for related posts and links to products featured.

I love lipstick. Not lipgloss, but lipstick. With my skin tone I love purples, certain reds, and a few nudes. With the matte liquid lip trend going on, it’s something that I’d like to try out in the summer. I want to master the lip pencil with the matt lippie for sure.

As for what’s in my stash, my ultimate favorite would have to be the Revlon Lip Butters. I love the consistency of the product. It’s so smooth and hydrating and while it feels like a lip balm it packs so much color. My favorite shade is ‘Fig Jam.’

I also have just about every variety of purple that there is. I just don’t like pink on my skin tone so purple/berry shades work well. I would like to find a pink that compliments my skin tone, but I just prefer purple. A lot of my lippies are from the drugstore and Drugstore.com is one of my favorite places to buy what I can’t find locally.

The most outlandish color would have to be Mac’s Hautecore. It’s a black lippe. I couldn’t resist it being a Steelers fan. Yes, I bought it for that reason. I have paired it with yellow eyeshadow on top just for effect. Experiment, it’s just makeup.

I’m not really into lipstick trends. As noted above, the matte liquid lipstick is what’s hot right now, but I love a vampy lip all year round. I haven’t really experimented with other colors and purple just happens to be my thing, but I’m open to experimenting.

As for storage, I have my lippies in this 24 slot container that I purchased on Ebay. You can find them just about anywhere, but I love the acrylic look. I have longer lippies that I keep in a mini storage drawer that I got on clearance from Target, but 95% of my collection has been consolidated into the 24 slots. Purchase the acrylic organizer HERE.

Rihanna ‘Viva Glam’

Rihanna 'Viva Glam'

Rihanna and Mac team up again this time for ‘Viva Glam.’ She follows behind other celebs with this campaign such as Lady Gaga, Ricky Martin, and Nicki Minaj.

Just like the previous Viva Glam campaigns all portions will be going toward the Mac Aids Fund which supports people directly supported by HIV/Aids.As for the lipstick / lip gloss the color is nothing spectacular. The packaging for the new campaign is not different than that of the others either, which is a good thing. You can purchase the lip pies NOW before they sell out.

Rihanna’s, RiRi Hearts Mac, collection has been selling out left and right with popular lipsticks, ‘RiRi Woo,’ ‘Heaux,’ and ‘Talk That Talk’. The collection spans beyond lipsticks/lip glosses to mascara lip/brow liners, eyeshadow, blushes and brushes PLUS the AMAZING packaging.Click to see what you can snag out of the RiRi Hearts Mac Collection for the Fall and Holiday. [You can also check Ebay/Amazon, BUT they are way overpriced.]
