Tomorrow I’m starting the 100 happy days challenge and will post my progress here! I encourage you to check it out if you feel like you could use some more positivity in your life.
The end of winter is here thank goodness! The only thing, I will miss is the classic dark lip that accompanies winter. Now, being a woman of darker complexion, we can pull off dark lips pretty much year round but I love a bright neon lip during spring and summer so this is the last few weeks I’ll get this sort of look.
One of my favorites is Milani Black Cherry.
The entire Milani lip collection in this range is BEAUTIFUL in my opinion.The colors are super pigmented (I’m mean, the MOST pigmented) and yet extremely affordable. They also apply really well so that nothing bleeds outside the lip, which is a usual problem for me.
I really love this color because it gives me a rich red color without being too shocking (like “traditional” reds can be on dark lips). This looks great with a neutral eye look and can be bold for a night out or toned down for a day at the office. When I pulled this out last week to use, I realized that I had been switching back and forth between this and my Rimmel lipstick in “Bordeaux” quite a bit and was curious how close they were in color.
As you can see, they are almost identifical! So you could definitely get away with one. Now the question is…which one? The left is Rimmel’s Long Lasting Lipcolor in Bordeaux and the right is Milani Black Cherry. It’s a tough call because Rimmel’s lasts much longer but the right is much more comfortable and creamy. SO, it depends on what you are looking for but if I had to choose again, I’d pick the creamy Milani formula.
Anyways, I hope you enjoy the end of winter and the beginning of the beautiful sunny days! Thumbs up!
One of my favorite lip gloss lines is the Maybelline Colorsensational line.
I have only tried limited edition colors unfortunately but based on the quality of these ones, I’m guessing you will have good luck with others in the line.
Limited Edition Color: Berry Brilliance
This gloss comes with a doe foot applicator and a sleek square package.
All 3 of the ones I have an amazing fruity smell to them that feels fresh and juicy. These glide on beautifully smooth and stay glossy for hours. Best of all, they are INCREDIBLY pigmented. I’m talking, these things can look almost like a lipstick but with full high shine gloss to them.
All in all I have not a single complaint about these lip glosses and will definitely be trying more colors in the future.
