Kleancolor Lipsticks - A Chicago Find

Last month, I took a belated birthday trip back home to Chicago with 2 of closest friends from Vegas. Trying to rack my brain for the best spots and shops to hit in Boystown, (which proved to be a challenge seeing how every time I come back more things have moved or left). One of my favorite kitschy places is Beatnix. I didn't even realize in the back they sell cosmetics...YAASSSSSS.

Stocking up on wig caps, lashes and Kryolan my friend pointed to Kleancolor.

In the past I've bought a few nail polished by that brand but had no idea that also sold makeup. Selling for $1.99 a pop - I wasn't going to pass this up.

19 Melon Crush - a matte coral, that's extremely drying.

4 Liberty - a royal blue that extremely sheer. Needs a blue lip liner first.

20 Mai Tai -outrageous orange-orange that I adore

5 Acai - this purple applies a different shade that when you look at the lipstick. but its quite pretty.

Ipsy Glambag May 2016

May is a big winner!

Hikari Bronzer in Radiate - GORGEOUS! Plus you can section off for one solid color.

Smashbox's X-Rated mascara - does Smashbox make a bad mascara?

SOO AE masks (set of 3) - These masks retail for $15-$20, which I've seen for sale at Target. Color me impressed! I've tried the Collagen and Brightening. A little more than what I pay for in a mask, but they are pretty fantastic. 

Epice Hydrating Mask- goes on thin, but leaves skin exceptionally soft

INSPR Beauty's eye fluff brush - never enough brushes!

Ipsy Glambag - April 2016

Shame, shame on me for falling behind! Here's the April Ipsy Glambag...

Moroccanoil Treatment - little too heavy on my hair, even after the pool.

Trust Fund Beauty's That Glo Tho Face Highlighter - I'm not a fan of the sticks, whether its blush or concealer but this highlighter is beautiful. And you can make it buildable as well.

REN Skincare's Evercalm Global Protection Day Cream - my face actually felt calmer!

Tarte's LipSurgence™ lip crème in Wonder - not in my usual color palette but Tarte is a winner.

L.A.B.²'s Live and Breathe Beauty
Just Blending In Brush - good affordable brush!
