IMG_8431

If there’s one thing I love about Too Faced (but, really, there are about a hundred things I love about Too Faced!) it’s their ability to create some of the most incredible lip products on the market! I’ve been so hooked on their Melted line lately that I’ve completely been missing out on their entire selection of the La Creme Color Drenched Lipsticks! So I decided to sit down with all 21 colors and have a little swatch party.

“NO MAKEUP” MAKEUP

Just uploaded to my YouTube channel is a ‘no makeup’ look that I’m completely in love with. This is one of my favorite looks because it’s so wearable no matter what your complexion, and while it’s very minimal, it still highlights my features so well.

I mentioned in the video that I would include some more affordable alternatives to the products I used! I know sometimes I tend to use really pricey products, so I want to make sure you can still create my looks if you’re on a budget.

Coming very soon to my YouTube channel is a video featuring four of my favorite bold lip picks!

The video will be up in the next week or so, but I wanted to give you guys a peek at the colors now. Hope you love them!

I’m truly a stickler for a good eyeliner pencil. I rarely use them, and that’s mostly because the formulas aren’t creamy enough. The skin around your eyes is so much more sensitive and thin than the rest of your face, so the last thing I want to do is pull and tug on the skin trying to get a dry liner on! I just got my hands on theBalm’s new pencils, Mr. Write (Now), in all eight gorgeous shades… And now begins one of very few eyeliner reviews I’ve ever done!

LORAC LIPPIES

20150122-UJ5A9527

Hello, friends! First off I want to welcome you back to MissMaven.com. You may have noticed I took a little break during the holidays just to get some rest. I extended my break into January because I also wanted to update the look of my blog, so I hope you like it! This is me officially signing back on.

Now, on to the fun stuff!

By now you must know I am totally in love with the LORAC Alter Ego Lipsticks. These are just the most beautifully pigmented matte lipstick shades, and despite being a matte formula my lips never get dry. It’s really the most unique lip formula I’ve used! LORAC has just come out with a gift set, which you can find at Kohl’s, featuring a sleek new gold packaging. The gift set includes five of their best selling shades, and three of my personal favorites happen to be in it! (That would be Duchess, CEO, and my number one: Seductress.)
