Hey my lovelies
I know can you believe it back to back post I'm on a roll :) so I have had these Lorac Pro Matte Lip Color retractable pencil like lippies for quite a while now and have been wanting to talk about them and here we are.
Let's begin, I got some of mine at Ulta & some at Kohls love both places :) Lorac is one of the brands in my opinion that is underrated, they have awesome products and don't get enough rave but anywho
these matte lippies are all that and you need them in your life, there is a shade in the range for everyone I mean I own 8, hello excessive ummm I think not. The colors are beautiful. There are 12 colors in all.
These lippies:
Great color range
Great pigmentation
Great Staying power
Not drying on the lips
Go on smooth
Not a bad price range at $16 retail (in my opinion)
So this is my take on these awesome Pro Matte Lip Colors from Lorac, You better Get Them in Your Life

Below you will see pics of lip swatches so you can have an idea of what they look like and judge for yourself, so I hope this helps and I of course will link Ulta & Kohls along with Lorac's website to make life simple for ya to go get you some:)) Comment above if you have any questions or if you have tried these, let us know.

xoxo, Ivette

Sephora + Pantone Universe Facets of Marsala Multi-Finish Eye Palette
Hello My Lovelies
    I'm back with a post & this one corresponds with my recent youtube video which I will have linked below so you can check that out as well if you haven't already. Above is the palette which I purchased from Sephora, I love that it's much smaller than last year and I love the "wine" shades hence the marsala colors, I find the shadows to be pretty pigmented and soft for the most part, there are some shimmer ones that are chunky but not super chunky in my opinion they still blend out pretty good. I'm not crazy about how deep the wells are as it's hard to get your fingers into the shadows when swatching or if you want use your fingers to apply the color but in the end that's not the biggest deal. I love the warm shades but there are some cool shades to round the palette out which is great because I'm a big fan of cooler shades. It's not the best palette out but all in all it's a decent palette to have if your a collector or a beginner. Check out the swatches below.
Row#1 Autumn Blonde, Toasted Nut, Marsala Matte, Marsala Satin, Shifting Sand, Cocoa Brown
Row#2 Burro,Deep taupe,Marsala Metallic,Marsala Glitter,Kelp, Dusty Olive
Row#3 Desert Mist,Butterum,Macaroon,Chutney,Nimbus Cloude, Moonlight Blue
Row#4 Carob Brown,Bracken,Russet,Hot Chocolate,Castor Gray, Red Mahogany

Marsala Layering Lip Collection

Marsala, Dusty Cedar, Canyon Clay, Rose Dawn,Muted Clay
The marsala layering collection caught my eye because they reminded me of the Hourglass nude pencils, also I felt like they are a great bang for your buck, $28 for 5 medium size lippies. They say they are sheer but I didn't find them to be that sheer, I thought they were pretty pigmented, I mean not opaque and all but pigmented enough and they have some sheen to them so they feel pretty moisturizing on the lips as well. I like them a lot. I definitely recommend these and since they are layering colors of course like any other lip product you can layer them if you feel they are too sheer and create some awesome nude lips, but I just like layering them with my lip liners. I think this is an awesome little set :)) Check out the swatches below.
Rose Dawn, Muted Clay, Canyon Clay, Dusty Cedar, Marsala

Shimmering Marsala Cheek Trio

Spanish Villa, Coral Pink, Marsala

The cheek palette is beautiful I love the highlight it's a great soft peachy sheen with great texture the blush in the center is a soft muted coral in a soft matte texture, seems like a light shade but I feel it's buildable but probably not more than a light medium skin tone person, I was able to have it show up on my skin as a soft pinky/coral shade but you can also use it to top off a cream blush or a Nars multiple which will look gorgeous. Lastly we have the Marsala color which is the opposite of the coral and is super pigmented so you have to use a light hand no matter your skin tone and I would recommend using a duo fibre brush to help with the application.
I think this is the best of all the color of the year products if nothing else I would say get the blush palette if you have to choose. Check out the swatches below.

Spanish Villa, Coral Pink, Marsala

Colored Mascara

The colored mascara is a gorgeous color of course and I like that the formula does not have a strong scent at all, the color is really pigmented and shows up on my lashes really well even without a primer. I found the mascara gave me length, a bit of volume but I don't feel it gave me any curl at all. It does leave my lashes feeling soft and doesn't leave them with that sort of crunchy feeling like when you put 2 or 3 coats, I never put more than 2 coats of mascara but with this one I did 3 and it was fine, there was no clumping, or flaking of any kind so that was nice too. It's a rich color and can also be used on the brows which is awesome because it's a beautiful color for the brows as well. I would definitely recommend this mascara/brow product if your in the market for a new colored mascara or looking to try something fun for your brows this is a great product.
Check out the pick below of the color and brush.
So that is it for this post my ladies & gents I hope it was helpful and you enjoyed. If you have any questions make sure you post in the comments above or in the comments below my youtube video which as I said before is linked below so you can check it out if you haven't see it.
