Lipstick of the Month ft. Vampira by Kat von D (Feb)

 I'm going to start doing "Lipstick of The Month" again I totally just forgot to do it anyways here's February's lippy! 

You can purchase this lipstick at Sephora however this shade has been out of stock (online) for quite a while. I am not new to KVD lippies I own a few and they are by far my most worn because they last sooooo long! I hate having to re-apply lipstick when I'm especially if its a night out and if you're like me this is for you too.

I love the designs on all of Kat's products (:

The doe foot applicator makes for an easy application so you wont need A lip liner

I find the new formula to be more smooth and a bit thicker and less drying than the old formula which is great. 

Vampira is a very dark, deep, brownish red burgundy shade but in pictures as you will see below it tends to come off kind of like a berry at times. Its perfect for fall or whenever lipstick has no season in my book, I always feel like makeup is more of a mood thing.

foundation routine, maybe? (:
long lasting
paraban free
decently priced
improved formula
large shade range
doesn't bleed

a bit of transfer
 drying (hours later)

A Week In Photos.....#1

1) The "typical" Starbucks snap.....Whats in my cup? Caramel Macchiato! I also like it iced but its been far too cold lately.

2) Bath & Body Works Scentportable: Mahogany Teakwood, yum! Its a very warm, inviting and "masculine" scent. I don't remember what's currently in my car now but this baby is up next. I don't think I'll be purchasing anymore because I cant tell its there 90% of the time honestly the ONLY reason I got these was because they were on sale for like $2 or something. Maybe they're not working for me because its winter and its far too cold? Hopefully in the warmer months they'll have more of an aromatic dynamic going on.

3) Ive been eyeballing this lighter for a while, there's nothing special about it I just like camo.

4) FOTD My foundation has been more flawless than usual *toots horn* Its all thanks to Wayne Goss I swear he's magic! lol Ive also been in love with Kat von D's Vampire liquid lipstick I wear it almost everyday.

5) Went to Noodles with a friend and I ordered something I wouldn't normally get; Thai rice noodle soup......BOMB couldve been spicier. I'm not a huge "soup" person.

6) S'more need I say more? Find them here

7) I find it funny that as a child i HATED popcorn balls the flavor was weird and I don't care much for chocolate either yet I loved this "gourmet" popcorn ball! yummy!

8) Caramel is my favorite scent and flavor so you know I had to buy this! You can get yours at Target they don't sell this particular brand online also some scents vary as far as how strong the scent is while burning.

9) Saved the best for last.....Red Velvet is one of the few flavors of cake I like and I have to say Oreo nailed this! If you can still get your hands on a package do it! Get up now and get some! GO!

M I C R O_Brow

So NYX came out with a bunch of new products recently and I believe this Micro Brow product is one of them? I'm not 100% sure but I'm 95% sure its pretty new because Ive seen and tried their other brow pencils and hated them all UNTIL...........NOW! 
If you've been following me on Youtube or Instagram for a while you'd know Ive been using Maybelline's DEFINE-A-Brow for years and loving it to death! Now I don't like to spend much on brow pencils because I go through them quite fast however I am open to splurging on something like ABH brow pomade thingy not just yet however lol so I saw this Micro brow pencil and prayed it could replace my current love (define a brow) because its sooooo hard to find in my shade (medium brown) at the store.
I'm so happy to say Ive replaced my Maybelline brow pencil for NYX MICRO Brow which you can purchase at Ulta for $10

This is definitely comaparable to ABH Brow Wiz however....this point is thinner.

 My shade is Ash Brown which looks a lot lighter on the brow than it does when its swatched but I like pretty light brows compared to my darker hair. There are 9 shades in total so it's easy to find something to match everyone which is always nice.

 Micro is the perfect word to describe the tip of the pencil! Its perfect! I found that it gave my brows a much more natural look so if you're a person that likes a more natural brow this is for you also if you have thicker/fuller brows this is perfect to fill in some little patches or add a bit more structure without making them look over done.
The only thing it claims to do is be smudge proof, its not but it also lasts for a long time! It also comes with a spooly on the opposite end.

I love this, I have zero complaints about it! It works perfectly for me its not too creamy or too dry but it has an slight tackiness to it and I find that helpful. The texture is more on the dryer end that's something I look for in brow pencils because lets face it nobody wants greasy looking eyebrows halfway through the day. 
Also It looks nice alone....very natural.

Im wearing just the pencil on my brows for an everyday look.


Here Im using it as base for other shadows for A more intense brow look.

long lasting
natural looking
large shade range


I give this a 10/10 (:
