I saw ads for this Maybelline Color Sensational Vivids Electric Orange lipstick in a few magazines, and wanted to try it. Orange seemed like a fun alternative to red.
I have ended up using it a lot over the summer, but I was disappointed that the lipstick does not look as shiny on me as it it did in the ad photos. It it matte, and a little waxy, and not as smooth and creamy as I expected and would like. The shade is also a little duller.
I have tried mousse foundation in the past and loved the feel and effect, so I decided to try this one from Ulta, called Extreme Wear Matte Finish Mousse Foundation. Unfortunately, I don't love this one. It feels strange and looks like it sits on top of my skin, instead of blending and covering.
Until recently, I did not know Ulta had it's own cosmetic brand. I found this blush Ulta Minerals Blush in Tulip for just $3.00, and it is the perfect size for my makeup bag, and the perfect shade of pink for me!
