Trending: 90's Lips

The 90's have been making their way back into the fashion scene for probably about a year now. One of my favorite things about the 90's was the makeup! I love brown lipstick! The smokey coffee house look is so in, especially for Fall. Check out these two products from Younique that can help you rock that look like no other!

Pouty is a rosy nude with a subtle sheen but dries to a matte budge proof finish. When they say waterproof, they aren't kidding! I love it on its own but it also makes the perfect base for the Lucatrive Glosses.

Lucky is a grey tinged brown gloss. Ultra glossy but not sticky, this gloss is the perfect neutral finish to your look. It can be built up to a deeper brown or worn with a lip balm for a lighter look.

Top: Pouty        Bottom: Lucky

Buxom True Nude Lip Foundation - Nude

Buxom's True Nude Lip Foundation is definitely working its way into my heart. I love a matte lip and add some nude in there, love! The shade I used in this photo is Nude and it's perfect. It doesn't feel drying at all just rich (yes a rich nude!) matte loveliness. Before applying the lip foundation I used my Bite Agave Lip Mask to make sure my lips stayed nice and smooth. With a matte texture lipstick you need a smooth moisturized surface otherwise every dry spot will show and well, that's not pretty. 

There is a range of 7 colors ranging from Naked a clear universal primer shade to Revealed, a deep rich brown. They can be applied as a primer before a lipstick and/or gloss or you can wear them alone for a natural to dramatic look.

Anastasia of Beverly Hills - Amrezy Palette

I love this new Amrezy palette from Anastasia of Beverly Hills. It is the first collaboration she's done with makeup artist Amrezy. Anastasia also recently collaborated with Maya Mia on a palette that looks just as gorgeous. I'm still contemplating that one but keep talking myself out it...

My favorite shades in the palette are Legend (the perfect highlight EVER), Caramel, Morocco, and Deep Plum. It has a mix of matte and shimmery textures. The only color I don't think I would really use it the Iridescent Purple as I'm picky about my purples. Other than that I love the jewel like colors. It's a beautifully done collection.

Sneak Peak! Lorac Mega Pro Palette

Coming in October (haven't heard the exact date), which is in about three weeks people... is this amazing new palette from Lorac, the Mega Pro Palette. There are 32 eyeshadows half matte and half shimmer. It is in my opinion the perfect collection. By looks of it I would say it comes in the same format as the first two, a thin magnetic cardboard palette. I find those palettes to be durable and extremely convenient when traveling. They take up no space but you can be sure that you have every shadow you could possibly need with you. 

Considering both pro palettes sell for $42 I'm not sure how much this will end up costing but I heard rumors of $52. That would be a huge money saver! Keep your eyes pealed! :)
Until the release, if you haven't checked out the first pro or pro2, find them here and here!
