The Best Nude Lipstick Combo | Redhead + Fair Skin Friendly

  A great nude lipstick can tie together a whole look.  I love wearing one with a smokey eye or a softer, natural glow look. As a redhead with fair skin however, I've made my way through plenty of nude lips that were slightly too pink or too pale. I posted this photo on IG the other day ...

Berry Lipsticks for Fair Skin + Redheads

  Hi, Fall! It's still 80 degrees in L.A. right now as I type, but I am willing Fall temperatures to happen.  How, you ask?  By writing about Berry lipsticks, of course. I love berry and plum shades all year round, but heck, do they look even better in the fall.  These are my top picks for my ...

ColourPop Fighter Lippie + Red Shades Swatched

It's pretty rare to find makeup that is made with redheads in mind, but finding makeup made for Strawberry Blondes is nearly impossible!  So I was very excited when I saw the latest Colourpop lippie shade, called Fighter, was made for Jessica Chastain to wear at the 2015 Met Gala. It's everything you want a red ...

L’Oreal Collection Exclusive 2015 Red Lipsticks + Polishes

I went into the drugstore the other day searching for a concealer to ship to my friend who lives in the Bahamas because she can't find some U.S. brands there.  Well, Karma gave me sweet angel kisses because I walked into Rite Aid and smack dab into this display for these L'Oreal Collection Exclusive Red ...

Dior Addict Fluid Stick Swatches & Review: Mirage, Aventure, Wonderland, & Pandore

In my next life, I want to come back as the person who names the Dior Addict Fluid Sticks.  "Mirage"  "Aventure" "Wonderland" and "Pandore" are just four of the names that in my brain, I try to pronounce like a French women.  Or Italian?  It doesn't really matter because these are very great names and ...

Matte Lipstick Trick: No Dry Lips Here

I LOVE matte lipsticks.  I love them.  Until about 5 hours in, when my lips start to feel super chapped.  And then the next day when my lips are kind of weird and scaley and peeling looking. I hadn't thought about that when I wear cream finish lipsticks with lip gloss, that the gloss keeps my ...

L’Oreal “Women of Worth” Collection Privee 2014 Nude Lipsticks & Nail Polishes: Review & Swatches
