THE SWEET LIFE

UJ5A9996

Every now and then we have the pleasure of experiencing moments that make us realize how truly sweet life can be. Last night was full of those moments.

To make a long and serendipitously beautiful story short, my friend Lilit (you’ll know her as MakeupByLilit on Instagram and from her makeup studio in Studio City) got together with Viola of Project Sweet Stuff and made some serious magic. The two had a vision of bringing  like-minded women together to celebrate the sweet life and share what it is that the sweet life means to us. That vision turned into an unforgettable night of memories and lessons I will cherish!

THE PERFECT PENCILS FROM THE BALM

UJ5A9979

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.)

As part of my second challenge with Target, my task was to choose on clothing item and one beauty item from Target and style them my way! I chose a simple, tailored black vest by Mossimo and stunning dark matte lip color from Revlon and put together a look that’s versatile for most occasions. Watch the video here!!
