Maybelline Vivids in Brazen Berry + Full Face!

Hey everyone! For some reason, I've been obsessing over purple lipstick lately and I have been looking left and right for the right color for me. I recently tried on MAC Violetta at the store and it was fun but wayyy too purple for my liking.

Thankfully Maybelline came out with their new Vivids line and I must say I am very impressed. I picked up Hot Plum which is a very bright blue-based hot pink and Brazen Berry which is a bright purple but has some pink in it so it looks more wearable and not in your face with purple.

Last night, I wore Brazen Berry for the first time and I really loved it. The color is very rich and pigmented and the texture was creamy and lasted the whole night. I only had to reapply once because I was eating and some of it was smudged but it wasn't obvious. I put it on top of Elf's Lip Lock pencil which is supposed to be a lip liner primer so that may have helped as well.

Now time for some pics! I'll show you a swatch of it on my lips and how it looks on me with a full face look.

Products I used:
Skin Renew Anti-Dark Circle Eye Roller
Almay Smart-Shade Anti-Aging Concealer in 010
Bare Escentuals READY Foundation in Light
Revlon ColorStay Mineral Finishing Powder in Brighten
Physicians Formula  How-to-bronze Light Bronzer
e.l.f. Studio Baked Blush in Passion Pink
Physicians Formula Custom Eye Enhancing Eyeliner Trio for Green Eyes (purple liner only)
Rimmel Scandal Eyes Show Off Mascara in Extreme Black
Maybelline Vivids in Brazen Berry

If you have any questions about my routine or the products I used, please ask! I hope you like the look I put together with the lipstick! Would you wear this color? have you tried any other colors from the Vivids line?

Monarch Butterfly Wing Nails

Hello everyone :) I finally got to doing a manicure that I've been wanting to try for ages and I finally got to it! I found an awesome tutorial on youtube that shows you how to do it and it's fairly easy if you have a steady hand and you're in a quiet area.

I browsed Google Images and Pinterest for ideas on wing color ideas and I figured I should just go with orange for my first time and maybe do something more funky next time I do this manicure.

For the wing color, I used Bare If You Dare by China Glaze which is an awesome shimmery peachy color. I reviewed it here in the past if you want to check it out. I wanted to make it more interesting so I topped it off with Twisted by Fingerpaints which is my favorite multicolored flaky topcoat. For the black, I used the Kiss Nail Art striper in black obviously and the white is Alpine Snow by OPI and I used a dotting tool to apply the dots.

Now... onto the photos! :)
Here's another pic so you can see the flakes!
And of course I have to include a photo of the inspiration for this look!
I hope you liked it! It took me quite a while to finish the entire thing... maybe 2 hours at the most? If you have the patience and free time for this look, you should go for it! It looks very nice and eyecatching in person!
