Hello lovelies! I am SO happy it’s friday, aren’t you? I can’t wait untill i get off work, so i decided to start putting this post together piece by piece on my breaks and spare time here since i already have some pictures saved. Today i will be talking about DNA Cosmetics matte lip colors! If you have not heard of this brand, you better listen up! I have a NEW OBSESSION with these lip colors. If you love matte, smudge proof & kiss friendly lip products, this will be right up your alley too! I have three colors to show you here today.

Meet “Lust” 😈

A bright, happy and rosey bubblegum pink color. I’ve paired this up with a very neutral/soft makeup look, so no attention will be drawn away from my big matte lips! πŸ˜‰ BUT, i also think this would look beautiful with a brown/bronze/goldΒ variation on a Smokey Eye. Maybe i’ll create something in the future.. I am not exaggerating when i say that these set almost instantaneously. You wait maybe.. 1 full minute and your lips are covered for the DAY. No smudging, no bleeding & no feathering. If you do plan on going out to eat or something else that causes a lot of moisture around your lips i recommend throwing it in your clutch/purse for a quick reapplication afterwards. πŸ‘πŸ’œ

The next color i want to share with you is called “Rebel Rose” πŸ’„

This color is a warm & nudey pink with a mauve rose undertone. This color can seriously be the transforming step to yourΒ whole look, this color is dark enough to be used for a grungey dramatic look or can be paired with soft eye makeup and make the look very natural & everyday friendly. I absolutely love this color and its versatility. Very popular i’m sure ❀️ This one is a mustΒ have in my book! One other thing i love about these lip colors are their texture/consistency. Ultra smooth, glides on, full coverage, great color pay off, ULTRA matte and the little doe foot applicator was made for lip products like this, i can seriously get such a perfect line around my lips you’ll be obsessed with how this stuff applies! πŸ‘

Now we have “Purplicious” πŸ’œ

An extremely deep & dark smashed blackberry color. How perfect is this shade for Fall?! πŸ‘ πŸ‚The only thing that was different about this color & all the rest are that: it required two + layers to achieve an even color payoff, cant really wipe away any errors with this one because it stains and it was much harder for me to get off my lips 😭 Other than that, i LOVE this color and i’ll definitely be wearing it for Autumn regardless. Did i mention that these gorgeous DNA lip colors smell JUST LIKE MAC LIPSTICKS??? That soft & creamy sweet smell that we all know and love! MAJOR PLUS πŸ˜‹ I would pair this lip color with a dark purple/black/grey eyeshadow to go with the deep, dark theme 😈

I HIGHLY recommend this brand, i think everybody needs to at least try DNA’s matte lip colors once! And once you do, you will be obsessed. I promise this will be your go to matte lip color for any & every occasion, it will become a part of your DNA. Go check out their site and pick out a shade onΒ their EtsyΒ shop HERE and ADD THEM ON INSTAGRAM HERE! Hope you all enjoyed this post and i HOPE you will go ahead and try these out for yourself, you will be so happy! πŸ˜΅πŸ’–πŸ’„

Ipsy October Glam Bag! 2015

Hello my loves! So sorry i haven’t been posting lately, but things will be picking back up here i have quite a few posts to make in the near future about lots of fun makeup topics! πŸ’–πŸ’„ And one big beautiful HAUL coming soon!!! Today, i will be sharing what i recieved in this months october ipsy bag. If you do not know what ipsy is, i encourage to to go ahead and check out their website it explains it all for you there. Baisically it is a 10$ monthly beauty subscription that is shipped to you with 4-5 deluxe samples, a makeup bag and sometimes one full size product (eyelash curlers, nail colors, makeup brushes etc..) Last months ipsy bag really didn’t make me too exited, i got a lot of stuff i wouldn’t use. This month, i got a lot of stuff i probably wont use and tried to do everything in my power to not recieve in my ipsy bags (hand lotions, hair products, etc.)

This months theme was “Alter Ego.” It made me so excited when i pulled this card out of the bag and the gorgeous girl had bright beautiful extravagant makeup on and neon pink hair! “This October, transform into whoever you want to be. A little imagination and your glam bag is all you need. Infinite possibilities, infinite ways to express yourself” was printed on the back. I was so sure i was going to get some bright awesome colors and products, but i was wrong. I really don’t see how this card related to my bag at all unfortunately, but it was a nice picture to look at.

This is itCosmetics Hello Lashes Mascara in a sample/travel size. I like this product and i’m excited to try it since i haven’t yet, so this one made me happy. ItCosmetics is a great brand i have tons of their brushes and i’ve used some of their other products too, anyone who got this was probably happy as well. πŸ‘

Here i have a Peter Lamas Pumpkin Exfoliating Facial Scrub travel size, it smells like a spicy fall time sweet dessert but a little over the top smelling at that. The exfoliating property of this seems like it would work very well it has thick exfoliating beads in it. Maybe i will use it on my legs or something i don’t think i would want my face smelling like this as i get migraines very easily.

Then there is the Eva Nyc Therapy Session hair mask travel size, i might try this or maybe pass it on to my mother. She also has an ipsy bag subscription so we will call each other and trade items next time we see each other haha. πŸ˜„ It smells very strong and perfume like. But the smell isn’t bad. You may like it a lot πŸ˜‰

Here we have a pair of cheaply made tweezers by Emite Makeup. I buy really good quality tweezers that are costly but worth it to me, because i do my own eyebrows and it literally makes the job a hell of a lot easier when you have a pair of precisely made, flat sharp tweezers at your service. These have no use for me. πŸ‘Ž

And then we have an awesome The Balm Liquid Lipstick in “Committed.” Very small sample size. It is a nice everyday neutral color, in a matte formula. Once again, nothing to do with this months theme.. It feels very tacky even after 5 or so minutes, but just hold off on smooching or eating etc. for a bout 10-15 minutes then it will fully set and there will be no smudging at all. I know it seems long, DNA cosmetics lip colors set immediately and stay put all day unlike The Balms formula, and it is much more affordable. Definitely recommend checking them out if you haven’t, their lip colors are TO DIE FOR. But this one smells exactly like thin mint cookies, other beauty bloggers were definitely right about that! Haha, don’t know if i would want such a strong smell on my lips all day but we shall see. πŸ™Œ

Well that’s everything in this months bag, please do enter my giveaway international & U.S. welcome! I will be announcing the winner Oct. 25th! πŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œ Keep tuned in for more reviews, makeup looks, a birthday haul, and much more! Comment and leave your thoughts honeybees 😘
