Urban Decay Lipstick in Rush, Review & Swatch

I remember when, many moons ago, it was the day of my freshman homecoming-my first dance ever-and my mom asked if I wanted to go to Sephora to pick out some makeup. Not even knowing what Sephora was, I readily agreed because who doesn’t love shopping, and my parents were paying.
This, along with a few Sephora eyeshadows and powder foundation, are the first “highend” products I’ve ever owned, and most likely the last (sooo out of budget now). And it sucks too because I really like this lipstick.

This particular shade is a really nice nude for me. My lips are naturally a few shades darker than a red (yeah-insane pigmentation) so for me, this is pretty much the same color as my lips. But what I really liked was the application. It was so smooth going on, and I remember through the night I wore it, it didn’t feel heavy or drying at all. It evened out the color on my lips nicely and gave me a subtle sheen <3
The color itself is a little bit darker than the picture above, and there’s a little shimmer, but it’s not really noticeable on the lips-just a really pretty, subtle sheen. It wasn’t streaky going on at all which is always a bonus.
The Pros:
It’s such a gorgeous nude if you have more pigmented lips. It’s also a really smooth, beautiful application. There’s also a really nice shade range to choose from.
The Cons:
It does have a slight smell, but I got over it soon. The price is a little out of my budget, but it’s not to the extreme.
The Bottom Line:
8/10
This lipstick was good, but for only having tried 3 lipsticks in my life, I don’t want to be “oh Wow, this is SO great!” when I haven’t even touched the field. But for now, I’m really enjoying it. Have you tried and of Urban Decay’s lipsticks? Let me know what you think below!

Rimmel London Lasting Finish Blush in Winter Glow, Review

 // not sponsored
So you know when sometimes you’re really excited to try a new product, and then…it ends up being the biggest fail ever? This was definitely one of those products. I picked up this Rimmel London Lasting Finish Blush with such high hopes that it would be the perfect winter blush but it was utterly disappointing. And it wasn’t just the formula or the color, it’s just an unfortunately product all the way around.

Sinful Colors: Let Me Go, Review & Swatch

My absolute favorite nail polish! This is such a beautiful silver, blue, lavender, swirly color! It does come out more pink and more sheer when it’s on my nails, but it still such a beautiful color. I love how it changes color and there is the slightest shimmer when you catch it right in the sun!
You can really see all the different colors and how they change in the light in this picture! J’adore!
You can buy Sinful Colors nail polishes here at Walgreens for $1.99

How to Organize Your Earrings

I’ve been searching for a solution to my large amount of earrings for a while now and thank goodness, I’ve finally found a way to solve all of my problems! It’s tough to organize your earrings in one place because they vary in size so much, from small studs to large hoops. I don’t recommend just storing earrings in a drawer because they can get tangled and broken easily, so hanging them is the best way to go. But if you don’t have a large budget, this is the perfect solution for you!
How to Organize Your Earrings

This is a standard mesh pencil cup that I picked up for $2.99 and it’s so easy to hang all of your earrings from it. It saves space and it doesn’t break the bank which makes it a great option to organize your earrings. And, can I just mention that I haven’t lost a single earring since I switched to this storage solution? It’s perfect!

I’d love to know, how do you organize your earrings? Let me know in the comments below!

Thanks for reading,
Kelly xoxo
