Did you get to see the new product line Lime Crime is releasing for the holidays? I was really hoping they’d eventually take a break from lipsticks to create a shockingly-bright lip gloss, and here it is!

Dark and Uncommon Lipstick Shades by Providence and Grace

September 21, 2011 Posted by fashionvandals

I’ve had a lot of positive responses to my previous outfit and makeup posts that featured black lipstick, with a few people saying that they didn’t realize such dark lipstick could be pulled off stylishly (I guess as opposed to clownishly). That being said, I’ve been seeking out other dark lipstick shades to utilize this Fall.

Providence and Grace offers a number of lipsticks on the darker side of the spectrum, and they sent me a few colors to try out. The makeup comes in a tube most often used for chapstick or lip balm, which is appropriate, since the consistency is a lot smoother and moisture-rich than most lipsticks.

Two Makeup Tips for the Financially-Challenged (Thank You Veva)

June 8, 2011 Posted by fashionvandals

If you’re a makeup nerd like me, you’re always looking for something new to try out. However, if like me, you’re also on a tight budget, you’ve realized it’s hard to find affordable products that offer really dramatic results (if you’ve followed this blog at all you know that I don’t even know the meaning of subtlety when it comes to makeup).

I have to thank Veronica Varlow for sharing the beauty of false eyelashes and sparkle lipstick during her latest webinar. Both of which make a huge statement and can be done quite affordably.

And by “affordably” I mean that if you can’t find a simple pair between $2-5 then you’re looking in the wrong place. I actually purchased these false lashes and the adhesive at a Dollar General (man, should I have admitted that?) and they stayed put all day.

And the recipe for sparkle lips? Just a good, tacky lip gloss and sparkles. Veva recommended a particular brand, but I just dabbed pink craft glitter onto Maybelline Colorstay lipgloss, and it performed perfectly. Just make sure not to get really big chunks of glitter (unless, of course, you want to look like a clown).

So there you have it…craft glitter and dollar store eyelashes.

Rules? I know nothing of the sort.

Blue isn’t exactly the most becoming color for dark-skinned women, and I kind of new that from the start. But yknow what? I still had to try it out for myself…
