22 Days of Red Lipstick Featuring NYX Round Lipstick in Chic Red

Red Lipstick Collage

Here we are, at the end of the 22 Days of Red Lipstick series. Welcome to day 22!

Today I’ve got a great, inexpensive red called NYX Chic Red.

This shade came out in 2011 and is my favorite one from the round lipstick line. While it doesn’t offer the most moisture in the world, it does offer incredible pigmentation and the shade itself is beautiful. I also love that you can see the lipstick shade in the bottom of the tube. Love when companies do this!

2013 Year in Review

2013 Year in Review

Here we are, another year has passed and it’s almost 2014!

2013 was overall a good year for me. The fact that it was about 10 trillion times better than 2012 made it an excellent year actually. I have no idea what 2014 will bring in terms of my career. Will I still blog full-time or return to work? I don’t know, and honestly my opinion about the subject changes nearly daily. It remains to be seen.

22 Days of Red Lipstick Featuring MAC Mineralize Rich Lipstick in Everyday Diva

Red Lipstick Collage

Well we are winding down on the 22 Days of Red Lipstick series, can you believe it? Just one more left after today then it’s 2014!

Today I’ve got one called MAC Everyday Diva. This is a newer shade from a newer line of Mineralize Rich Lipsticks which came out this year. This line includes twelve shades and they have a medium coverage and tons of moisture.

They come in a tube with a magnetic cap, which is pretty fun. The formula is smooth, lightweight and feels really comfortable on the lips. Everyday Diva is a good starter red since it’s not UBER bright and intense and can be built up.
