february 2017 empties!

I actually spotted Marina Rumppe wearing Anastasia Beverly Hills Lip Gloss in BUTTERSCOTCH {$16.00} last summer, and immediately purchased it in the hopes that it would work as well with my fair skin as it does her golden complexion, and it did! Ladies, this bad boy holds holy grail honors in my lip collection - being the first lip product I grab whenever I leave the house. Butterscotch is a neutral peachy beige with hella shine that would look bomb on all skintones. It lasts for hours without requiring touch-ups {even if you're eating and drinking}; but, it does have a tendency to lean orange-y if you reapply it more than twice a day - at least from my experience. DEFINITE RE-BUY {I'm already on my second tube!}.

Ooh ladies if you love a neutral shadow that makes your eyes look huge and couples well with sleek, feline-esque liner then ColourPop Super Shock Shadow in PUPPY LOVE {$5.00} is one shade that you need to sink your claws into! I rarely hit pan on cream/powder products, but this one became such a mainstay in my shadow collection that I did. Puppy Love is a cream/powder hybrid that reads beige/pink on the eye with a strong golden sheen that adds a kick to your basic neutral. With primer it lasts all day with no creasing or fallout. BONUS: All proceeds from the sale of Puppy Love are donated to Best Friends Animal Society's NKLA Save Them All initiative. DEFINITE RE-BUY {I'm on my second pan}.

Deluxe samples are my kryptonite, so when I scored one of MAKE UP FOR EVER's Artist Plexi-Gloss in 202 SWEET PINK {$19.00} from Sephora back in December, you know I was excited. Cutting to the chase: I have a love/hate relationship with this product. I lovelovelove the shade Sweet Pink on my skintone {compliments galore y'all}; I adore the tacky touch which makes it last. for. daaaays {for real}; and the shine effect seriously slays. What I hate, or rather, what took me forever and a day to adjust to is the smell. Battery acid. I haven't seen anyone else mention this in reviews, so maybe it's my super senses at work, or I simply got a funky tube, but I found the smell to be intense for the first handful of uses - after that it dissipated, and wasn't noticeable. POSSIBLE RE-BUY.

You know when you're just a few dollars short of free shipping so you look for anything to toss in your cart to hit that magic number? Well, that is precisely how NIVEA A Kiss Of Care & Color in SHEER PINK {$4.99} came into my life, and honestly, it's as if the heavens were shining down on me that day because it has become an HG product in my beauty wardrobe. The Sheer Pink shade is perfect if you like a hint of color to prettify your pucker; but what kills me is the amount of moisture, hydration, and shine this bad boy provides. I apply it at night, and it is still just as glossy when I wake up in the morning, and my lips are insanely smooth. Whether you're using it to protect against harsh weather, as a colored balm, or layering it underneath lipstick this is a miracle worker! DEFINITE RE-BUY.

Have you tried any of these products before? Thoughts?
