I love liquid lipsticks because of their matte finish and longevity. They don't transfer so they are great for special events or nights out. I already own one shade from the Sephora Cream Lip Stain range and decided to get another because I was very impressed with it. I've been meaning to do a Liquid Lipstick Roundup post for ages. I finally published my Coastal Scents eyeshadow collection post so I think 2015 might be the year for completing overdue posts.

Even though NARS Sheer Glow is still my favorite foundation, I will occasionally try other formulas to see if there's something I like just as much. Since I already own wonderful matte formulas (like the MAC Pro Longwear and MUFE Mat Velvet+) and Sheer Glow offers a natural satin finish, I was looking for something along the lines of a dewy finish. Practically every review of the Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation ($62) is a positive one so I decided to try.

Due to the recent security breach at Lime Crime Cosmetics, plus the fact that the color was always sold out, I have given up on trying to obtain their Salem Velvetine Lipstick. I even ordered it from Urban Outfitters only to have them notify me that it was backordered and later cancel the order. So I've been trying to find some dupes for that color ever since. This is one of my attempts using a NYX Lip Liner all over the lips. The verdict? I loved the color but found that it applied a bit uneven.

I'm glad to finally be able to publish this post. I've been mentioning a Coastal Scents eyeshadow collection/roundup review almost every single time I've posted a makeup look featuring their eyeshadows. There were a few technical difficulties when it came to this post. After I photographed the swatches, I realized I left out some shades so I had to do them all over again (it's hard to keep track of all 35 eyeshadows specially since they are sorted in my palettes by color, not brand.) Then one day my cat got into my makeup palettes (my mistake for leaving them out in the open) and ruined two of the eyeshadows.

I wanted to host a giveaway back in October 2014 when my blog turned two years old but was extremely consumed by a lot of things and never got the chance. Better late than never, right? Here is my way of saying thank you for supporting my blog, sending me kind messages, posting encouraging comments, and simply reading what I have to say. Thanks to everyone who shares and retweets my content. And thank you to those who are regular "silent" readers. Since I recently reached 6,000 readers via Bloglovin', this giveaway also serves as a commemoration to that.

Lime Crime Lipstick in Chinchilla ($18): I had always wanted a grey lipstick but it wasn't something that was a priority on my to-buy list. I needed to spend $15 more dollars in order to get free shipping at Urban Outfitters so I said "Why not?" and put Chinchilla on my cart. I'm glad I did because I ended up liking this a lot.

I hope I am able to post several Valentine's Day themed makeup looks just like I did last year. For now here's a neutral, soft pink look. It's very daytime but easily transferable into night. The star is definitely OCC's Creme Colour Concentrate in Pleasure Model ($23). I used it pretty much everywhere-- on the eyes, face, and lips. I reviewed it last year (here) in case you're curious.

I was sent these two moisturizers from Neutrogena to test out two weeks ago and now want to share my opinions with you. I hadn't been this excited about a drugstore skincare launch in a long time. As I've mentioned before, I prefer moisturizers in gel formulations. They work with my normal skin type and the tropical humid weather I live in.
