New Smashbox Be Legendary Lip Lacquer + Always Sharp Lip Liners w/ OOTD

Hey guys! Today I bring to you a fashion and beauty post!
Smashbox recently released a new collection of lip products including the Be Legendary Long-Wear Lip Lacquer and the Always Sharp Lip Liners. I swatched a few of my favorites here on the blog, but there’s definitely a lot more shades for you guys to choose from. I wanted you guys to see the pigmentation. In this post, I’m currently rocking the ‘Violet’ lip liner completely filled in (which gives you a nice matte finish) topped of with the “After Dark’ lip lacquer to deepen up the look.
One thing I’ve never seen before on a lip liner that was pretty interesting, was the built it sharpener (which you can’t even see) that always keeps your liner sharp! It’s a small detail that makes a huge difference on those days when we don’t want to fondle through our make-up drawers looking for a sharpener. I really loved that! It’s inside the cap and sharpens when you twist the lip liner on and off.

Also, a good cause in effect right now is the “Create a Gif, Give a Gift” campaign in which Smashbox will donate a product to for every gif that’s created to the Look Good Feel Better, an organization dedicated to making
people who are undergoing treatment for cancer look and feel better.

Can’t wait to see it!

And just as a brief over-view, I wanted to give you guys my first initial impression.

For this outfit it all started out with the faux leather pleated skirt that I wear at least once every fall season. I wanted to have a few subtle contrasts in this look, which is why I went with a sweater material cropped top that had graphics all over it and a diamond incrested necklace. I then paired it with my trusted and ever so comfortable laced up heels and a bright red bag for a pop of color! Last but not least, I added a dark lip as my final accessories for this look. It gives it a sort of gothic- chic vibe with out being over the top and I loved it. That’s one thing I love about fall, the dark lips start to come out!

Get Ready With Me For A Summer Night Out!

Summer is my favorite time of the year because there’s nothing better than a warm summer night!
I love to wear clothes that easily transition from day wear to night wear with the change of accessories. The outfit that I’m wearing is a beautiful romper c/o Kardashian Kollection. You can wear this during the day for some afternoon shopping with sandals and change into wooden platforms for a summer night dinner or event like I did here.

My hair was kept easy and minimal. I created waves with a large wand from the Curl Jam set form NuMe and tied a small section of hair around the crown. I then sprayed it with a flexible hold hairspray to lock in the waves. The cool thing about the waves is that they last for a few days. I love to add texturizing balm on my ends the following morning for a beachy, messy look.

Since the look is for a night out, I went with a little bit more makeup than I usually would during the day. I used this AMAZING new clay foundation by Tarte Cosmetics which gave my skin full coverage, yet it was still light and breathable. I then added a summer glow using the Benefit Watts Up! highlighter down the bridge of my nose and my cheekbones. For my lips, I went with a magenta shade lip color to match the small flowers on my romper and that pretty much completed the look.

REVIEW/DEMO: Benefit They’re Real! Push-up Liner

As requested, I’ll be reviewing the new ‘Benefit They’re Real! Push-up Liner’. It’s a gel eyeliner pen that was recently released at the price point of $24 USD. I first heard about this product at this very secretive event at the Roosevelt Hotel. It was a release party for this new product for bloggers and the media. What caught my attention was the innovating design that was put into this liner. The AccuFlexTM tip is something I’ve never seen before, and it makes the world of difference when you’re applying gel liner. The tip hugs your lash line and it gives you immense control and flexibility on design.

I still have to get used to it when it comes to lining the inner lash line. It’s been coming out uneven the first few times that I have applied it, but for the most part, I love it! I’ve been wearing intense cat eyes for the past few weeks and have gotten tons of compliments on my liner. It’s also great for this hot weather because it doesn’t flake and does not transfer on the lid.

In the video, I’m also demonstrating the removal process. Benefit also came out with a new eye makeup remover called ‘They’re Real! Remover’. It’s a very gentle yet powerful creamy gel formula that easily removes the liner. This product is coming soon and it’s valued at $18 USD. Using any oil based makeup remover or coconut oil will do the job though.

My ideal price point for this push-up liner would be $15.00. What do you guys think?
