Lip Trend: (Horizontal) Ombre Lips

There are different kinds of ombre lips, but this is the version that I like doing the best. It makes the lips look more plump and pouty. This post is a demonstration of how I do it and I just used the colors in my collection. Feel free to use any 2-3 lipsticks in your collection. 

Dark colors aren't always everyday friendly, but I still like to wear them. Doing lip ombres like this allow me to wear dark colors, but they aren't as dramatic. 

For the lightest color, I made sure to use a kind of glossy color because the shine helps with the illusion of fuller lips. Lip gloss could even be added to the very center of the lips to draw in even more light.

FacesOfTheWeek #3

#3! Sorry that I'm not being consistent with these posts. I got busy for awhile with school and personal life. My makeup has been quite boring too, but I bought some new makeup products that I wanted to play with!

Review & Swatches: Jouer Powder Eyeshadow in Chocolat

Jouer Powder Eyeshadow in Chocolat is described as a "shimmering bronzed brown" but it has some gold in it. It contains 0.077 ounces / 2.2 grams of product and retails for $20. This product can be used dry or wet and when it is wet, the color is darker and more brown and fits the name "Chocolat" more.

Review & Swatches: NARS Blush/Bronzer Duo in Orgasm and Laguna (Mini size)

The NARS Blush/Bronzer Duo in Orgasm and Laguna comes in two sizes. I will be reviewing the mini size. Each powder contains 0.08 ounces / 2.5 grams. Orgasm is a pinky coral blush with a very fine golden shimmer and Laguna is brown with gold shimmer. 

I've always heard about these two shades, but I could never bring myself to buy either the full size or the duo palette because of the price. I wanted to find possible dupes before buying these powders, but I finally got them. I believe the mini size came out about a year or two ago and so I decided to get it since it was also cheaper. After using it for the past couple of days, I can see why these shades are so famous.
