NYX Cosmetics Luv Out Loud Limited Edition Liquid Lipsticks

NYX Cosmetics asked me if I would give my honest opinion on their newest liquid lipsticks: Luv Out Loud Collection. Being an avid lover of all things by NYX Cosmetics, I naturally said yes.

The Luv Out Loud Matte Liquid Lip Collection is a limited edition so I wanted to share these with you as soon as possible. Plus, Fall will be here as soon as possible. Don’t you agree?! My lips will be ready to showcase any Fall outfit with the Luv Out Loud liquid lippies.

The NYX Professional Makeup PR info asks: Are Passionate, Brave, Fearless, Confident, Extraordinary or Brilliant? …celebrating individuality, beauty and artistry for all! What do these words mean to you? Swipe on your favorite shade and take to social to tell us how you #luvoutloud.


From top to bottom:Brilliant, Confident, Fearless, Extraordinary, Passionate

I’m all those characteristics and then some! I just know you are too! I received 5 of the 6 limited edition NYX Cosmetics lippies. So, it’s a GO for all 5 of them. Look out Fall! Here come Matte Lips!

I have many matte liquid lipsticks and a bunch of them are by NYX Cosmetics. Without a doubt, the NYX Cosmetics liquid lipsticks are my favorite. I was pretty sure these limited edition matte ones were not going to be any different. I was SO right!

If you have sampled any matte liquid lipsticks, you know that they can be drying, sticky, crumbly and/or tacky. Brush all those concerns out of your mind because none of the Luv Out Loud liquid lippies are like this. Can you say: Velvety, smooth, moisturized! I tried the lippies out on well-scrubbed lips for a test run. I put on a silky soft lip balm after that. Then, the pressure was on for these NYX Cosmetic’s new-comers.

What transpired was nothing short of glam. You’ll want to head over to NYX Cosmetics¬†and order these limited edition matte liquid lipsticks pronto. Here are the shades I tried out:

From top to bottom:Brilliant, Confident, Fearless, Extraordinary, Passionate

There was only one thing I wished these lippies did and that was no transfer. While the liquid lipstick stayed on my lips for a good 5 hours, there was transfer to my tea cup. I did find one thing interesting, though. After about 5 hours, even though the lipstick seemed to have faded, the color had stained my lips. And, that stayed on until I washed my face right before bedtime.

Heck, why wait til Fall? I’m wearing these beauts NOW!

When you get your NYX Cosmetics Luv Out Loud matte liquid lipsticks, take a selfie and post it across the Internet using #luvoutloud. Let the word know you are AWESOME!

Maybelline New York Fall 2012 Polish: Downtown Brown

Holy Whip It…Good!

It would be a huge surprise to me if my beauty blog is the only one you read. Heavens, I read at least 50 from time to time, myself. I’m a blogger but I’m more of a blogger reader. So, I have seen this gorgeous Fall polish alllll over the blogs…

A fancy-smancy ‘Downtown Brown’ from Maybelline. Coming from their Fall 2012 collection, I didn’t dally around trying to decide if I wanted this one. I grabbed it!

This is two coats and I didn’t even take the time to put a top coat on it. I loved how easy this Maybelline polish applied.

Not quite as light as milk chocolate but the green shimmer makes this one full of mystery!!…

The color in the bottle transferred to the nail very well. I don’t have to hunt for that green shimmer to show.

I still have nubby nails but they are growing fast and they feel strong too. ‘Downtown Brown’, however, continues to make me focus on my nails because that color is just BOSS! This is, so far, my favorite Fall shade.

I found this display at Walgreens and it was $4.99. I have seen this in several other Walgreens and Bed, Bath and Beyond, so I don’t think it is too difficult, at this time, to find.

Are you going to get it?

I Spy…L’oreal Nudes and Sock Monkeys

We don’t move from one season to the next here in Orlando. We move from hot, hotter and hottest seasons. Right now it is hottest, but WHOOPIEEE hotter is on the way!! How do I know? I am starting to see Fall and Halloween stuff in the stores. Get your butts on back to school, kids! The Holidays are coming and so are the products!

I saw this at the Dollar Tree this week. Sort of freaky, exotic and out there…

Even if it is pretend, I don’t think I want to create a look of spiders crawling out of my eyes!!! EEK!

L’oreal wants us to get nude. Nude makeup, that is…

I’m not a nude sort of (makeup) gal. I like color! But, there are some nice taupes and browns in these collections. I discovered these at Walgreens.

It took ALL of my willpower to not purchase these!!!….

I found these mini sets of Kleancolor polishes at Ross Dress For Less. It was only the vision of two boxes of unswatched polishes sitting in my office that kept me from buying these. I couldn’t seem to stop imagining a cute little knick-knack shelf to display the Kleancolor babies. The photos are fuzzing not only because I was using my phone camera but because I was truly quivering over finding these. My heart just skipped a couple of beats reliving this.

Now, this is something I’m pretty sure I’m going to have to go back and get…

These cuties I found at Claire’s. And these, below, I stumbled upon at Big Lots…

Which one do you like best? I like the middle one that is supposed to be a pumpkin!

Are you as ready as I am for some Fall stuff? I’m ready for just the hot temperature, or season, that is!!

New Fall Candles Have Arrived At Bath and Body Works

I knew the Fall Bath and Body Works candles were on their way…

Because Kari from Once Bitten Blog tweeted about it. I knew my wallet was going to be empty soon! But, that’s why I hoard my receipt surveys from B&BW; they never expire!!

I had the cutest young guy helping me find all the new fragrances. He was new to working at B&BW and I found him to be a delight. It was a good thing my sniffer was working this day, he introduced me to a lot of new scents.

I snapped away (with my cell phone) a lot of photos to show…

I hit up the mini candle bar. Since the medium and large size candles weren’t on sale yet, I stuck with the little ones so I could get started. Plus, I would find out which ones I have to get in the larger size.

The minis were 3 for $5 so I got 6. Here’s the fragrances I got to try out:

-Pumpkin Caramel Latte

-Black Pepper Bergamot

-Lavender Vanilla

-French Baguette

-Mahogany Teakwood

-Cinnamon Nut Bread (which has been the candle of the day today)

I know I’m getting the Black Pepper Bergamot fragrance. I love almost any fragrance that has Black Pepper in it. Years back, Bath and Body Works had a mens’ line called Molton Brown. When they had it all on clearance, I picked up ‘Re-Charge Black Pepper Body Soother’ lotion. I got it for me, not the hubs.

And the Mahogany Teakwood, another masculine scent, is on the will-buy list too. The French Baguette isn’t as strong as I would like. The Caramel Pumpkin Latte is just one of several pumpkin scents they have in the Fall line up.There are several cider and fresh apple scents as well as some favorites from last year. My fav: Marshmallow Fireside!

Have you seen the new Fall candles in your Bath and Body Works store? Which ones are you loving?

Sinful Colors: Leap Flog

Sinful Colors nail polish is a brand that I stalk. If I find out that a new shade has popped up, I’m on a mission. Luckily, because I live in a large city and, I am all over this city working, I get plenty of chances, almost daily, to stop by different Walgreens to shop.

Here is one of the newest called: Leap Flog…

See, that wasn’t a typo. At least by me! I sure wish I knew the story behind ‘Leap Flog’. What I do know is that it is a gorgeous color. My photos don’t do it justice because it is a darker and dustier shade of turquoise. It has some gray to it, as well.

And, I think this has to be a Fall color…

This is the standard three coats. I used Lumos as the base coat and Lumos High Speed Top Coat. I wore this for 2-1/2 days and it wore super well. It isn’t a watery polish, as Sinful Colors can be. This one builds up opaque in 2 coats, easily.

I’d love to find a pair of pants or jeans this color. It would work so well with other colors I love like black, red, pink, and brown.

Have you tried ‘Leap Flog’? Care to take a guess on what the name is about?
