Maybelline Vivid Lipsticks!

These lipsticks are so fun for the spring and summer. If you are all about bright lips these are great for you. The price point is from $6-$8 depending on the store. I got mine from Walgreens for around $7.50 and they were buy one get one half off.

I would suggest using a lip balm under the lipstick, as they are a bit drying. The colors are so beautiful. These are a great buy for the summer. Although I had to reapply the color after 2-3 hours, I have to say for the price they are worth it! These lips look great with a natural eye.

In the picture below I have Pink Pop on my lips. My favorite one is Shocking Coral!

Tarte Cosmetic: Review

Hello everyone!

I hope everyone is having a wonderful week. I have been very busy lately due to my Esthetics State Board Practical Exam. I have been studying like crazy for the last several weeks, and just took my test on Tuesday. I am so happy it is over!

For the last several months I have been doing a lot of research on different professional makeup brands that do not contain most of the harsh and hazardous chemicals put into cosmetic products. With my immune system being at jeopardy at it is from my Thyroid Disease, having a makeup brand that I am count on for healthier products is very important!

I have learned that most cosmetic products such as mascara and lipstick contain actual petroleum or gasoline. These chemicals get into your body though our largest organ....the skin. When these chemicals enter into our system, throughout the years it can cause a hormonal imbalance or even cause us to have a high level of heavy metals.

Tarte cosmetics is one of the very few high-end brands that does not contain parabens, phthalates, and synthetic fragrances. They use vitamins, minerals and natural fruit and plant extracts to create their products! With using natural ingredients it helps the signs of aging within the skin.

Tarte's packing is made from recyclable or post-consumer recycled material. They believe in minimizing our carbon footprints. Tarte cosmetics is also cruelty-free!

Over the last two years I have fallen completely in love with their entire makeup line. From their blushes to lip-stains, and even foundation! I give Tarte Cosmetics a 10 out of 10 for a Go-Green company, as well as amazing products over-all!

Tarte is always coming out with great specials and packages around the holiday season. They even have a sale section on their website! Now who doesn't love a good sale? :)

I highly recommend checking our Tarte Cosmetics! These products can be found directly from their website, Sephora, Ulta, and QVC.
