I'm currently obsessed with the color Coral! So, while I was on my most recent Walgreen's escapade I fell in love with the Kate Lippies from Rimmel. First thing that caught my eye was definitely the packaging! How can you not fall in love with a Bold Red Lippie Case with Kate's signature on it?!? Also, it was the first time that I noticed that they're also available in a Black Lippie Case with Kate's signature outlined in Red. Love Love Love!
So I picked up just a few shades to try out.
From Left to Right,
12 - Coral Matte
14 - Nude Matte
102- Very light Pink - actually a great dupe for Nicki2 from MAC's Viva Glam in Pastel Lavender Pink.
This coral shade is so pigmented and looks great on darker complexions as well!
The light pink is not my fave but I think it would look great on fair, light or even olive complexions.
Unfortunately, I could not get a very good picture of the Nude shade but it's perfect for those girls that love a nude lip.
Overall, I was very pleased with the shades that I purchased. I felt like the pigmentation was pretty good, especially for the Coral shade. I'll definitely keep you ladies posted on any additional shades that I try.
Thanks so much for checking out my blog. Please feel free to share your thoughts and comment below.

So for St. Patty's Day I played around with some shades and came up with this look. It's actually a lot easier to achieve than it looks. Keep scrolling for a step by step tutorial:
For the eyes:
✨ Apply eyeshadow primer on lid and concealer under brow.
✨Blend a light cream shade like UD Naked Basics WOS.
✨Continue to blend above the crease a neutral almost tan shade like Naked 2, also from the basics palette.
✨In the crease blend a darker brown like Faint.
✨Cover the lid below the crease with a white eyeliner base like Milk from NYX.
✨Starting in the inner corner of the eye, pat on a yellow e/s.
✨To the left of that shade use a light green and blend it slightly into the yellow.
✨ Next blend in a darker shade of green.
✨Lastly, add a very dark green on the outer corner and into a v shape into the crease.
✨Take a blending brush like Mac's 217 and blend all shades in the crease.
✨For the lips:
Start with a white base on your lips. I used Milk by NXY.
✨Starting in the middle of your lips, add a bright yellow lipstick or e/s if you do not have a lippie in yellow.
✨On the outside of the yellow, add a light green and blend it slightly into the yellow.
✨Next add a darker shade of green and blend outwards towards your natural lip line.
✨Lastly, add a dark green liner and blend it into the previous green shade added.
✨Top with a gloss and slightly press your lips together.

Hello Beauties! I know it's been forever since I've blogged but I'm back and ready to share all things beauty and makeup related with you.
Products listed from L-R:
This month I received Ipsy's Glam Bag! For those of you who are not familiar with Ipsy, they are a paid for monthly beauty box subscription program that will ship you 4-5 products a month. So here's the items that I received in this month's bag:
Products listed from L-R:
Juice Beauty Hydrating Mist
I'm actually really pleased with this mist. It smells and feels great and it's perfect for my makeup kit! Also, what's not to like about a cool mist that's great for your skin!
Glamrx Mirror Mini Palette
This is such a cute lil palette for any mini eyeshadows that you have. Ipsy actually provided two sample eyeshadows from Yaby. I've never heard of Yaby before so I gave them a try and Wow!! They are very pigmented! I'm definitely going to have to use my discount code this month towards a Yaby palette!
La Fresh Makeup Remover Wipes
Now I have super sensitive skin so I had to test these on a small area of my skin before use. Unfortunately, they made me break out! :0 I'm going to have to give these wipes two lippies down! If you have sensitive skin too, please be careful and test a small area before you use these to remove your makeup.
Last but not least, the makeup bag for this month was super cute and perfect for Spring! I may even save this for an upcoming giveaway!
That's all for now but stay tuned for more beauty talk from me soon! 😘
