The Lip Liner Perfect For The Ombre Effect
If you know me than you know I'm a nude girl when it comes to my lipsticks. I will gravitate towards a bright or deep shade depending on my mood, but for the most part I always grab my nudes. There's something about a nude lip that just screams simple. With the winter comes the need to add a bit of life to your makeup and I have been doing so for the past week now since I invested in MAC Cosmetics lipliner in 'nightmoth'. I've known about night moth for some time now, but I never got my hands on it and I honestly regret waiting so long. The color is the perfect shade of purple. It's deep enough to wear alone, but perfect to ombre with another side on top [which I've been doing]. I'm absolutely in love and although nude will always be my go to shade, something about this lip liner just makes me feel put together. This liner is the perfect shade for pretty much any complexion and it's extremely versatile. It's nice to step outside of your comfort zone every now and then and night moth allows you to do exactly that. I promise you won't regret getting your hands on this liner. Keep scrolling to see just how amazing it actually is below. The Real Vs. The Deal: If you don't feel like dropping nearly twenty dollars on a pencil, you can always opt for the dupe by NYX [here] which is just as good. As a makeup junkie, it's always good to know and learn the dupes. Contrary to popular belief, just because a dupe is more affordable -- doesn't mean that it doesn't work in the same manner. Isn't it gorgeous? Are you feeling the vampy look? @TessStevens @marshalledgar @stephosorio @amobigbang You can purchase yours [here].
COMING SOON! MAC Collection: Selena Quintanilla
MAC Cosmetics has done it again. Selena fans get ready to run to your nearest MAC counter towards the end of 2016 because our favorite cosmetic company is releasing a makeup collection with your favorite latino. The latin pop sensation was extremely gorgeous and her voice was perfect -- which means, that the collection will mimic her beauty. We are hoping for pops of color and bright reds, a color that she often wore. Whether you're a fan or not, there is no doubt in my mind that this collection would be pretty close to perfect. This collection was made possible all because of a fan who created a petition on change.org earlier this year. Thanks to the 37,000 supporters and fans this MAC collection has become a reality. MAC's creative director/vice president chimed in saying, "Selena's talent and beauty, inside and out have, have left a colorful, meaningful impact in the world, that has continued to grow over the last two decades. We have heard the passion and enthusiasm from her fans and wholeheartedly agree that her legacy embodies MAC's philosophy." Her sister even voiced her excitement saying, "I am so excited that MAC Cosmetics will be releasing a collection in honor of my sister Selena. Helping to create this collection brings me back to all those late night conversations on our tour bus when she spoke of having her own makeup line one day. If Selena were here she would be beyond ecstatic to have this happening. History is being made." Next year seems so far away, but there's no doubt in my mind that this collection won't be worth the wait. Thanks to MAC and all of the true Selena fans for allowing this beauties legacy and beauty to live on forever. "If you have a dream, don't let anybody take it away." - Selena Quintanilla

Breaking Up With Ruby Woo And Finding True Love Again
Dear MAC Cosmetics, I was a huge Ruby Woo fan until my lips began to feel like cardboard. Sincerely, I've moved on If you happen to be a MAC girl like myself, than you know just how amazing the color payoff of Ruby Woo is. It's the ultimate red matte lipstick and every woman should have one in their makeup collection -- well, except for the fact that it has to be one of the most drying lipsticks ever created. Before you mention I should moisturize and exfoliate my lips, believe me -- I do both of those things quite frequently and to no avail -- Ruby Woo always leaves my lips dry, cracked and peeling. I eventually ended up giving up on one of my all time favorite lipsticks and for quite some time -- I was slightly depressed. That is until my wish my granted one day I walked into Sephora. If you're a makeup junkie like myself than you know just how important dupes are. If you aren't familiar with the term dupe, it refers to an affordable makeup product that is a replica of a more high end product. While in Sephora randomly shopping around, the lady helping me out had the most vibrantly gorgeous red color on her lips. I asked her what she was wearing and she replied, Always Red [see here]. Being the rather slow woman that I am, I thought she had heard me wrong and was just telling me that she always wore red on her lips. While browsing in the Sephora brand makeup section I later realized that the name of the lipstick on her lips was 'Always Red'. When I tell you that it was love at first sight, I'm not exaggerating. I didn't hesitate to purchase the small tube of lip stain. I didn't even wait an hour before I was at home trying on the color. Not only was the color payoff fabulous, but the consistency was absolutely amazing. It went on creamy like a creme based gloss and dried like a matte lipstick. The best part was that my lips didn't feel dry -- at all. I was extremely impressed, but I wanted to give it the true test of time -- so I left it on for a couple hours to see how it was going to hold up. Fast forward five hours later and it looks as if I had just applied the lip product. My lips were literally poppin' and they weren't the least bit dry. I never knew it would take being introduced to just one lip product in order for me to get over my first true love Ruby Woo. If you find yourself struggling with the drying effect of Ruby Woo, come on over to Sephora -- you won't be upset. Every woman needs this red in their collection, please take my word for it. Ladies, do you have a go to red lipstick? List them below.
Eyeshadow Palettes You Need To Get Your Hands On This Fall
Fall is upon us, which means it's time to step up your eyeshadow game. Put away your bright shades and bring out the browns and burgundy's. Your makeup deserves just as much attention as your wardrobe. Choose shades that compliment both your complexion and your outfit. Eyeshadow palettes are perfect because they come with a wide rage of colors and you get just enough bang for your buck.
