Buxom Plumpline Lip Liner-Crayon Review

Hello and happy Friday! Today I am reviewing Buxom Plumpline Lip Liner-Crayon .  I received this liner in either a Ipsy bag or Sephora Play.   It’s available at Ulta for $17 USD.  The color I got is Hush Hush which is a cinnamon color.   I have so many lip products that this pencil was relegated to the nail polish bin on my dresser.

I used this for the first time a a few days ago.  This liner is thicker than most pencils.  It’s easy to apply and very pigmented.  The best part is the attached brush. After applying you simply use the brush to smooth over your lips.  It has a matte finish and be worn alone.  I topped it with Laura Geller Color Luster Lip Gloss in Sugar Cane , I got in a Ipsy bag, and it’s $19 USD.  It’s a peachy rose color.

So I wore this pretty lip color  duo to a function on Weds.  I had two drinks and never had to touch up my lips.  When I got home, the liner was very intact.  That was four hours after I put it on!  This never happens to me.  I’m not a fan of long wearing lipstick as they tend to be very drying.  Both the colors are so pretty together.

Thanks for stopping by.

Laura Geller Baked Blush N Brighten Dupe

Happy Sunday! Being a snowy day today, I went shopping. I had to make my second Ulta trip this week because I needed to pick up something for my co-worker. Months ago I got a Laura Gellar Baked Blush N Brighten in Tropic Hues from Ipsy.  I really like the color and was contemplating buying a full size which is $28.  I have a 20% off coupon for my entire purchase that I’m holding out buying anything until I have a ton of stuff to buy. Since I’m a platinum rewards member at Ulta, my 20% off coupon works for prestige brands.  Anywho, I was looking at some clearance items and found the almost exact color by Palladio. I’m guessing Ulta won’t be carrying this line any longer since everything was on clearance.  I do see they carry this at Sally Beauty Palladio Herbal Baked Blush in Blushin’ for $6.99.  I paid $1.79 at Ulta.  I was able to compare the two colors at the store.

Holy cow!  They are almost identical. The swatch looks a wee bit different, but they look the same on.

Such a pretty peachy color

This is such a nice color on my pasty white skin.

Ulta Holiday Catalog

Happy Saturday!  Growing up in the 1960’s, getting the Sears & Roebuck catalog was a big deal.  We would spend hours pouring over the toy section. Mom and Dad would let us pick out what we wanted Santa to bring us.

Well, I just got the 2016 Ulta holiday catalog yesterday. OMG!  I actually looked at it twice last night.  There are so many holiday kits, I was going crazy!  For the past several years, I’ve asked for an Ulta gift card from the hubby.  That’s it.  Maybe some candy, and a Ulta card loaded with lots of cash.

Judging by what I was seeing, I’ll be going in way before Christmas.  It’s such a great way to try higher end cosmetics without paying a ton of money.  Check it out Ulta Holiday Gifts
