My Favorite Lipsticks // #NationalLipstickDay 2019

In honor of today being National Lipstick Day, I wanted to share an updated list of my all-time favorite lipsticks! To check out my favorites from 2017 click here and from 2018 click here - Enjoy! Kylie Cosmetics Matte Liquid Lipstick // $17 My absolute favorite lipstick formula is the Kylie Cosmetics Matte Liquid Lipstick! When it comes to matte liquid lipsticks, this is one of the most comfortable and the most long wearing from what I've tried. I know I can count on it looking perfect all day with minimal touch ups. All of the products I've tried from Kylie Cosmetics have been so high quality and well worth the hype it gets. These are an absolute must-have in my makeup collection!  Shades Shown (left to right): Twenty Kylie Candy K Dancer (metallic) Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lipstick & Lip Ammo // $18 Tied as my favorite lipsticks are the Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lipsticks. They come in a beautiful assortment of unique shades and


Frida Kahlo is one of my favorite artists, so it was so exciting to see a makeup line inspired by her artwork! I randomly came across this brand at CVS near the checkout area in the "beauty-on the go" section. I never heard anything about this collection or the brand Republic Cosmetics prior to purchasing these, so it was fun to try out a completely new brand. There isn't much information available online for this brand, but I'll share everything I was able to find! Based on the research I've done, Republic Cosmetics is a cruelty free company based in Mexico that sells only in select CVS locations in the United States (there was no information regrading retailers in other countries). The Frida Kahlo collection features 12 lipsticks and 12 nail polishes - but only about 5 of each are sold in stores at CVS, from what I've seen. Each product has a different design inspired by Frida and her art, which is so innovative and beautiful. The packaging is likely

My Favorite Makeup Products Under $5 // (PART 3)

In today's post I'm going to be sharing an extended list of my favorite makeup products under $5! 2 years ago today for my very first blog post, I published a list of 5 products that are under $5 and on-par with high-end alternatives. Last year I made a part 2 to this series and today I'm going to be continuing the tradition! I've been curating this list all year and have been looking forward to sharing these products with you! Enjoy! Flower Beauty Petal Pout Lipstick // $5 When it comes to bullet lipsticks, Flower Beauty is the best of the best! The Petal Pout Lipsticks come in a beautiful range of shades that would flatter every skin tone. It feels so comfortable on the lips and is very long-wearing. I also love to use this lipstick as a crème blush - it's the perfect texture to be used on the cheeks and lasts just as well as it does on the lips. Both the formula and the packaging for all of Flower Beauty's products feels like a luxurious high-e


Frida Kahlo: Appearances Can Be Deceiving is the largest dedicated exhibition to Frida Kahlo in the United States in the last decade. The Brooklyn Museum's curation included several of her most iconic paintings, hundreds of personal items, and never before seen photos. After Frida's death in 1954, her husband Diego Rivera ordered for two of the rooms in their house in Mexico, La Casa Azul, to be closed off with all of her clothing, photos, papers, beauty products, and other personal possessions. He planned on re-opening it in 15 years, but the rooms actually weren't rediscovered until 2004, when the Frida Kahlo Museum in Mexico opened and displayed all of the items. The first room of the exhibit mainly included film photos from her childhood and early adult years when she met her husband and fellow artist, Diego Rivera.  The first painting displayed in the exhibit was Self Portrait as a Tehuana which she completed in 1943. This painting is also known as Diego
