Perfect Pair! My Favorite Lip Combo and Why!

Jouer and Colourpop

I love Colorpop's lipstick, especially their Ultra Matte Liquid Lipsticks! I love how they manage to stay put for hours and what I love the most? The price! These liquid lipsticks are only $6!

My absolute favorite shade is Times Square. And I'm not just talking my favorite shade in the Colourpop line. I'm talking my favorite shade of all time!

Colourpop's Times Square

It's the perfect pinky toned nude with just a hint of brown, making it extremely flattering on my skin tone. However, there's one gripe I have with these lipsticks. They tend to crumble at the corners of my mouth in a white, flaky, highly unattractive, and extremely embarrassing way.

In comes Jouer lip balm. I first received a sample of it wayyy back in my birchbox and fell in love with it until my cat got his hands on it and destroyed it.

I purchased the full sized one and used it under all my Colourpop lippies and voila! No more crusty lips. Now I know what you're thinking..."I can do this with any 'ole lip balm"...negative. I have tried.

What I like about Jouer is that it's not just a lip moisturizer. It has plumping properties as well. Not plumping ala Kylie Jenner or even bee stung lips, but just enough to fill in the wrinkles of your lips preventing the lip color from settling in there and crusting up. I have naturally large lips and I love how this balm makes them look juicer and fuller.

Totally suck at taking selfies but here's how it looks on me:

Mini TJ Maxx Haul and Target Boots

TJ Maxx is my favorite store to shop at, since I love a good bargain . Brand name clothing, shoes, makeup, and housewares at awesome prices! I also love Target's clearance section which is where I picked up the boots. In addition to the boots, I also picked up two large lamp shades for $6 each!!

I love anything mint colored, and looking at this mug just made me happy! TJ Maxx $2.99
On my way to the register, I spotted the red mug with hearts and couldnt resist. TJ Maxx $3.99

I also have heard about being able to find theBalm products at TJ Maxx but most of them had missing items or were broken. I was finally able to find one that was intact. It comes with a bronzer that doubles as an eyeshadow, a blush, a lipgloss with SPF 17, and a mini kabuki brush. $9.99

Here are some swatches:

Betty-Lou Manizer is a bronzer which doubles as an eyeshadow. It is the perfect color for my skin tone. However, as a bronzer, there is fine glitter that is visible in the sun. I prefer matte bronzers. No…

Red Lipstick Collection

I have recently become obsessed with red lipstick. I love how it can add a pop of color to a simple look and make it look like you've made some effort.  Check out my latest YouTube video on my red lipsticks:

Revlon Colorburst Matte Balms in Sultry and Standout

I was a good girl. I wanted to buy all of the Revlon Matte Balms but I held myself back. It took a lot of effort. I picked up the two shades I knew I would get a lot of wear from. These two shades are Sultry and Standout.

Sultry is a gorgeous pinky mauve. 

Standout is a gorgeous deep red.

I really think I might pick up some more. They go on smoothly without tugging. While these are matte, they are comfortable to wear since they are not as drying as most matte lipsticks can be. Until now, I really thought "matte balm" was an oxymoron, but Revlon has done it!
