FOTD - Smokey eye w/ a nude lip and a red lip

This is a smokey eye look I did for my Class Reunion 40th Birthday Party last night. Let's go NHS Class of '88! LOL! At first I wore my lovable nude lip, but later decided to change it to a red lip. I chose to wear my second new love, MAC's Ruby Woo lipstick. Check out pics below.

FOTD - Wearing NYX Tea

I have been on a roll lately. I normally do not wear makeup more than once  per week. Lately, I have been in the the mood to play in my makeup. This is my second day wearing NYX Tea lipstick. I am really loving the nude lip.

Lips: Mac Cork Lip Liner, NYX Tea Lipstick, MAC Boy Bait Lipgloss

NYX Round Lipsticks

Below you will find the swatches of the NYX lipsticks that I purchased from Cherry Culture. They are currently on sale for $1.99 at Cherry Culture. I must say I am really impressed with these lipsticks. Thanks Jamie from RGB for the recommendation of NYX's Tea lipstick! It is most definitely the hotness!

MAC Up The Amp and Ruby Woo

Since the beginning of this blog, my challenge was to purchase and wear more lipsticks. I have been busy buying lipsticks. One of my latest purchases was MAC's Ruby Woo and Up The Amp. Below you will find the swatches of the lipsticks.

Avon Glazewear

Recently, I was contacted by my cousin who sells Avon about a promotion they were having. Avon is currently selling their glazewear lip gloss for $1.99. These babies normally retail for $6.00. Well you know me, I could not pass on this opportunity, LOL! I purchased eight of the 16 colors.
Left to Right: Clear, Iced Pink, Dazzling Diamond, Apple Cinnamon, Brown Sugar, Mirage, Cherry Liqeur, and Sweet Maple
Avon states that Glazewear is America's #1 Lip Gloss compared to mass market lip gloss unit sales.
The Glazewear lip gloss is available:
  •  In sixteen shades from pinks, plums, reds, to mocha.
  • Three finishes- shine, sparkle, and intense.
My two cents:
I am really impressed with the quality of these lip glosses. The glazewear lip gloss is non-drying and non-sticky. They are also lightweight. Overall, my favorite thing about them is that they have a mild pleasant scent. The clear glazewear has SPF 15. My only concerns with this gloss is that they require frequent application and some of the colors were very sheer.
These lip glosses will be very pretty worn over other glosses or lipsticks.
Below are the swatches of the lip glosses I purchased except for clear.

I would definitely recommend that you purchase Avon's Glazewear lip gloss while they are on sale for $1.99. Definitely worth it for the price. If you have teenagers in your family that likes to wear lip gloss, these glosses will definitely make a great gift for them.

I give it a 3 lips out of 5.
