L'Oreal LeMatte Color Riche Velvety Full Coverage Lipcolor in MATTE-R OF FACT

L'Oreal Color Riche Velvety Full Coverage Lip Color in MATTE-R OF FACT.

Found this @ Target and it retails for $7.99

Deep Berry/Wine/Red Shade

Matte Finish (Satin finish..almost)


Size Comparison

It looks like it has a bit of sheen but once it dries on the lips, it looks matte (satin)
I have been on the search for these lipsticks ever since the youtube hype started. People would rave about it so naturally, I NEEDED one lol.

The color applies opaque and leaves a nice satin matte finish. My lips get extremely chapped and dry so this formula isn't the greatest BUT I do love the color. It is very similar to MAC's Media lipstick as far as the shade goes.

The one gripe I have about this lipstick is that is has that L'Oreal lipstick smell. I can't really explain it but let's just say I'm not too fond of the smell. Once you wear the lipcolor, the smell is gone :) 

This lipstick is pretty good and I highly recommend it if you can get your hands on one. This shade especially is beautiful. It stained my lips after removing it. It stayed on my lips even after eating cheesecake factory :) It's a good one. 

Okay, now, go to Target or wherever else it's sold and buy it now! 




Still on the search for a Lalaque shade in Laque-onic. It looks like an amaaaaaazing red. Couldn't find it at a Target near me.. The search continues.

Until next time!

Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick Reviews and Photos (F-Bomb, Shame, Liar, Native, Naked2)

Urban Decay Revolution Lipsticks Retail for $22.

I love how they add a sticker with the shade.

eeeeek! i loooooove the packaging. It has weight to it. 

UD Revolution Lipstick- F-Bomb

My favorite red!

Swatches beautifully but also looks amazing on the lips. Perfect classic red. 


SHAME

Looks scary but actually it's a nice deep wine color.

Shame

UD Revolution Lipstick - Liar

Deep nude shade

I like this shade but it isn't my favorite. Love how it looks but it doesn't look the best on my skintone (MAC NC30)

UD Revolution Lipstick - Native

Nude Pink

Love this shade! Could have done without it because I have so many great nude shades BUT I love the formula so I had to keep it.

Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick Naked 2

I've already used this many many times over the past few weeks. Perfect every day shade.

Looks great with my NC30 skintone. Perfect nude without any pink to it.

LEFT TO RIGHT: F-Bomb, Shame, Liar, Native, Naked 2
I originally only had two.. then 3.. then 4.. then now 5! Omgoodness, I NEED to STOP. I absolutely love the formula of these lipsticks. 

Favorite Shades: F-Bomb, Naked 2, and Shame! (MUST HAVES)
Could do without but still <3 are Liar and Native.

The formula of the lipsticks feels creamy and smooth. The lipsticks last a while but will transfer. The lipsticks themselves have no scent! Love this! Sometimes I can't stand the smell of lipsticks... This is especially true with drugstore lipsticks. MAC's lipsticks I love the smell of. It's nice that the UD lipsticks are without a scent because sometimes the smell is just disgusting. These lipsticks literally smell like nothing.

The formula creates such an opaque finish on the lips. With all 5 of the shades I picked up, it covered up my natural lip color completely. I am so impressed with these lipsticks and I highly recommend them. They are definitely worth the money!

Hope this helps.

What's in my Phillip Lim for Target Mini Satchel with Gusset in Black?

Phillip Lim for Target Mini Satchel with Gusset in Black $34.99

I only brought the essentials and still had space in the bag.

iPhone 4s fits in the front pocket. I don't think the iPhone 5 will fit though...

Perfect fit for the phone.

Still have room!

Everything fits :)
I finally took my Phillip Lim for Target bag out yesterday! I only wanted to bring the essentials.

1. Michael Kors wallet
2. MAC lipstick in Blankety
3. MAC lipgloss in Underage
4. Marc by Marc Jacobs Daisy Mini Perfume
5. Marc by Marc Jacobs Sunglasses
6. Chanel powder
7. iPhone 4s
8. Canon Powershot ELPH100HS (not shown because I was using it to take these pictures)

I really loved how small this bag was. We went to a dedication and a small bag was perfect. I still noticed how long the bag was compared to my body. I wish it was a liiiiiiittttle bit shorter. Even when the strap is adjusted to the lowest setting, it still hits me a little lower than my hips. I guess it is supposed to be worn cross body but I prefer to wear it on one shoulder. Throughout the day, I found myself just holding the two handles. I loved how it looked with my outfit.
Took it out last night when we ate at Panera. So cute :)

3.1 Phillip Lim for Target Mini Satchel with Gusset - Black

Phillip Lim for Target
Released 9.15.13

Phillip Lim for Target Mini Satchel - Black
Pretty little bag

I love the pebbling on the material. 

Smooth and functioning zipper.

Love the Phillip Lim signature.

I loooove the price! I know it's not real leather but Phillip Lim did a great job on this bag design.



Retails for $34.99.

The cutest little bag ever! I am absolutely in love with this bag. It's really small so if you were expecting it to look similar to the medium size, then no... it's mini. I love the mini! It is sooo adorable. It comes with a crossbody strap. I'm 5'4 and even when it's adjusted to the smallest hole, it still hits me right under my hip. 

Phillip Lim really did an amazing job with this collection allowing his creative ideas from his main line to shine through this collaboration with Target. This will probably be the closest I will get to owning something from Phillip Lim. Score!

HERE'S MY TARGET STORY:

This Phillip Lim for Target release has been on my mind for a while now. I could not wait to finally get my hands on that mini satchel! 

I really love this bag and I am so glad I snagged one when I did. I stayed up late last night hoping I could get it online BUT failed. I fell asleep! Goodness...what was I thinking?!? So I woke up early this morning... jumped out of bed... and left! Literally just left. 

There were so many girls at Target! I couldn't believe it. Everyone was crowded around the Phillip Lim collection and I was starting to look disappointed because I couldn't find the items I wanted.

After a few seconds of quick browsing, this girl put back the Mini Satchel right in front of me! Like hello? Really? You're putting it back? Okay. I'll take it lol...Right when I saw it, I grabbed it (along with the this one) and walked away. Paid. Done. 

It was kind of sad to see people fill up their carts with items that we all know you're just going to resell on eBay. Give the Lim Lovers a chance! For example, my sister really wanted one as well. Since I live on the east coast, I was going to snag one for her here. But since the eBay vultures struck the Target near my house, I had to make sure my sister woke up to get to hers on the west coast. She told me there was a looooong line outside her Target in Seattle. She felt like she wasn't going to get one. We woke up our brother in California to try and get my sister one and he went to the one in SJ. He was really sweet and tried to get one for her. So crazy how quickly things sold out. Literally sold out within minutes! He was unsuccessful but my sister was lucky enough to snag hers! 

Such a thrilling morning. I'm so glad we both have one! 

I might go back to Target just to see what else I can get. This has been an amazing collection. A job well done Target. Have a good week everyone!

3.1 Phillip Lim for Target Top Handle Crossbody - Black








Phillip Lim for Target Top Handle Crossbody in Black.

I wasn't intending on getting this one but as soon as the Target associate came out with three of them, I knew I had to grab it! Girls at the Target I went to were so cray cray over these bags! So glad I scored this one.

It retails for $34.99. The "leather" is actually pretty soft. I wanted this bag in yellow but I couldn't find it in the store.

You can purchase it at Target stores. It's unfortunately unavailable online but check out the pics on the Target website too [here].

This is probably the closest I'll ever get to owning anything Phillip Lim so thank you Target and Phillip Lim <3
