Noir Red from Besame Cosmetics

Besame Cosmetics is a California based cosmetics company with a vintage feel.

Agent Carter’s Hayley Atwell Wears @BesameCosmetics Lipstick

Did you watch Marvel’s Agent Carter last night? Did you see the gorgeous red lipstick Hayley Atwell was wearing? Me too. Turns out she shared what lipstick it was last month via Twitter and it’s Red Velvet by Besame Cosmetics. Obviously, I’m late but better late than never right?

Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Black Box Set

Black Box Post title

Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics is a brand you need to get to know if you haven’t already. The brand is cemented as one of my faves because of the variety and pigmentation of their Lip Tars. However, the company has some other products I haven’t tried yet and this led me to pick up their Black Box Set during their 20% off sale a few weeks ago before it disappeared forever.

Blow & DGAF from Melt Cosmetics

After months and months of waiting for Melt to restock some of their popular colors I was able to get Blow and DGAF this month. Blow is a pretty matte green and DGAF is dark matte blue. Unfortunately, DGAF is sold out again with no clear restock date. I suggest signing up for the Melt newsletter and pay attention to Melt’s social media accounts for any updates. Now, on to the photos. Continue reading @MeltCosmetics Blow and DGAF Photos + Swatches

Jack Black Intense Therapy Lip Balm

I’m still under the weather but I just wanted to gush about this Black Tea & Blackberry Intense Therapy Lip Balm from Jack Black. It’s not cheap compared to other lip balms, but this one is worth it. One of the ways I know I’m feeling a product is when I’m using it unconsciously. I was reaching for this lip balm like I’ve been using it forever. I think it’s great.

Mini Haul photo

This is just a quick mini-haul post. I hit up Whole Foods for the first time so I had to check out their beauty section. Turns out they had Thayers Witch Hazel($9.99). The peach version I’ve heard so many things about wasn’t available so I had to choose between Rose Petal and Lavender. Continue reading A Little Bit of a Skin and Lips Haul

Black Radiance El Dorado Red and Panther Collage

Black Radiance is one of those brands that I slept on because I was caught up buying expensive makeup. It happens to the best of us. Now I know there are good products out there for less than 5 bucks and my wallet thanks me for it. Continue reading Don’t Sleep On Black Radiance Lipsticks
