Lipstick Collection, Swatches and Reviews. :)

It's such a beautiful day outside that i'm like literally sitting on my driveway blogging this right now.
I've wanted to do this post for a while now because I think they're really helpful, but yeah.
Here's my lipstick collection and swatches! :)
This is going by color and tint not brand by the way.
Here's my bare lips with just chapstick on.

Ok, first lipstick is Revlon's Nude Attitude.
It's a nude color with peach undertones.
This is a matte lipstick which i'm not a big fan of, it really like accentuates the wrinkles in my lips, but it has nice coverage...and it's not too drying.

Second lipstick is Mac's Creme D' Nude.
It's a nude color with more pink undertones.
This formula is AMAZING. It's of course the infamous creamsheen formula so it glides on wonderfully. It is a bit too pale for me but it's still a nice lipstick. Good coverage, but it wears off easily and it's one major flaw is that it melts and breaks easily, so I have to be really careful with it.

This next one is Mac's Marquise D'.
It's neutral nude pink color with subtle shimmer.
...LOVE. LOVE. LOVE. This lipstick came out with the Blonde, Brunette, Redhead Collection a while ago. It's a lustre and it's B.E.A.U.T.I.F.U.L. I actually broke mine a few months ago, but I'm going to depot it and buy a backup from ACW too so that I never run out of it...It's just amazing and smooth. A bit sheer but creamy and a nice wearable everyday color.

Up next is Rimmel London's Airy Fairy.
It's a nice baby pink color with mauve or purple undertones.
It's a creme formula with a slight matte finish. This was my first lipstick ever and all that's left is a little nub. I love the formula though, it's creamy, moisturizing, and extremely pigmented. The color is beautiful and a great everyday lipstick, I always have this on hand, because if I can't choose a lipstick I can slick this on and have a nice natural look. It has great coverage too.

Then there's Maybelline's Born With It.
It's a baby pink color with subtle shimmer.
This is not a favorite of mine. It's from the ColorSensational line and everyone raved about it, but I just don't like it. It accentuates wrinkles, wears of easily and the cake scent drives me crazy because it's soooo sweet smelling. It's pigmented though and gives nice shine and a beautiful color, I just really don't like it.
Ignore the pluto pimple beside my lip I meant to retouch that out. -_-

This next one is Mac's Warm Me Up.
It's a neutral darker pink color with peach undertones.
It's a amplified creme formula. I thought I wouldn't be able to wear this because of the formula, but I wear this almost everyday! It's become one of my favorite lipsticks! I love it! It's creamy, long-wearing, doesn't transfer when eating or anything and has amazing coverage. It came out with the warm and cozy collection that came out a little while ago, but if you can still get your hands on it...then I definitely recommend you do.

Up next is NYC'S Mousse.
It's a neutral light bronze color with pink undertones with subtle shimmer.
I don't wear this often but it's a beautiful wearable color. It's very creamy but has sheer coverage. It's not too drying and it's very cheap! It's only major downside is the packaging. If NYC ever fixes their packaging I'll be in love!
Sorry that picture came out blurry ^^.

Okay, now we have Rimmel London's Birthday Suit.
It's a neutral dark bronze color with peach undertones and noticeable shimmer.
This is like a darker more bronze version of NYC'S Mousse. It's somewhat sheer but still has the wonderful formula of Airy Fairy. I like to wear this over my nude lipsticks to give a little color so that I don't look dead. It's a pretty color and definitely a love of mine.

Then we have Revlon's Blushed.
It's a dark pink burgundy color with noticeable shimmer.
It's a great fall color but I don't wear it that often because It's so dark. But it is a beautiful color and I love to wear during fall and winter. It's creamy and has great coverage and it's very pigmented. But it can be a bit drying.
Once again sorry for the blurry picture ^^.

Next is Revlon's Blasé Apricot.
It's a bright coral color with peach undertones.
It's a creme formula with a slight matte finish. This is my favorite bright color for spring! It's pigmented, has great coverage, and it's not drying at all! So, if you're looking for nice coral color to wear I definitely recommend this one!
The intensity of the color doesn't show well in the photo.

Then there's Almay's Red.
Its a cherry red color with subtle shimmer.
It's a bit sheer and it has gold sparkle shimmers in it. It's really pretty and not very drying. It wears off alot though and feathers alot. Pretty color though, but I don't wear reds too much.

Last but not least is Rimmel London's Alarm.
It's a bright hollywood red.
It's a creme color with absolutely no shimmer and a slight matte finish. It's really bright, pigmented, and pretty. And it has the same formula as the Airy Fairy lipstick, so it smells good, is moisturizing, has great staying power, and is smooth and creamy. Over all a perfect red lipstick and so cheap too! :)
Sorry for the super messy that point I was just slapping em' on. :/

Mini Collective Haul (MAC, Drugstore, OPI, etc.) and Acrylics. :)

I'm doing a small collective haul right now! 
It'll probably be my last haul for a little while because my birthday is the 29th of this month and I'm just going to buy stuff then.
So, I'll do a haul then, but before that there probably won't be another haul.
So I got a new Maybelline quad in Designer Chocolates #40 because my sister ruined my Chai Latte quad. :(
My favorite quad! So, I decided to try Designer Chocolates instead.

Then I got the Revlon Illuminance Cream Shadows in Not Just Nudes #710. It's nice-ish. I'm excited to try it, but the 2 last shades on the right are a little bit too dark. I'll probably do a review on this sometime soon.

Also I finally stopped by a MAC counter to get a lipstick that  i've been wanting for a while now. I got this mostly because 'Lollipop26' aka Laura said that it was one of her favorite nudes, which I don't own alot of. Soo...I picked up Creme D' Nude which is a creamsheen lipstick. It's really pretty. :)

Also, I got my acrylics done! And to go with them I bought myself an adorable ring that i've been wearing everyday since, that I got from Body Central.

Also, I did get an OPI nail polish, but I didn't take pictures sorry! I ended up getting Lincoln Park at Midnight though.. :)

Also, does anyone know how long MAC collections usually stay out on the market? Because I won't have the money until the 29th, but I really want to get 'Blooming Lovely' lipstick and 'Petals and Peacocks' lipstick from the 'Give Me Liberty of London' collection, but I'm not sure how long it'll last. :/ If you know, please tell me. Thanks! :)

Yessumms. Might as well keep wrinkles away before they start.

-Did you ever have to use Pro-activ?

No, I have never tried Pro-activ.

-How about concealer?

I don't really use concealer...
-Do you know your undertone color?

I have a yellow undertone, because I have green veins. I have olive toned skin. :)
-What do you think of fake eyelashes?
I think they look good on some people, but I just don't have the patience to put them on.
-Did you know that you are suppose to change your mascara every 3 months?

Yeah..but sadly I don't really follow that rule, I just use up my mascara and however long it however long I use it...I'm not just going to throw away a perfectly good and full mascara because 3 months have passed.

Wet N' Wild Mega Protein. <33.

Yeah, I use Loreal H.I.P. Cream Shadow Paint. It works the best so far.

If I do though...It's Benefit's That Gal Primer.
-What is your favorite eyeshadow (color or shade)?

Uhm. Hm.. Maybelline Chai Latte Quad (all 4 shades) :)

I switch between liquid, cream, and pencil, but right now I've been using pencil because it looks the most natural and I've really been liking that look.

Very rarely because I've gotten so used to it.
-What do you think of pigment eyeshadows?

I think they're nice if you can find a suitable color.
-Do you use mineral makeup?

Yes...I try to as much as I can.
-What is your favorite lipstick?

Erg. Another hard one....I have soooo many favorites, but my top two are probably MAC Warm Me Up lipstick, which I've been obssessing over recently and Rimmel London Lasting Finish in Birthday Suit and Airy Fairy.... <333333.
-How about lipgloss?

I don't wear lipgloss....ever.
-What is your favorite blush to use?

Uhm. My one LDL blush in a pretty matte peachy color which is almost gone...and isn't sold anywhere... :((
-Do you buy your makeup on ebay?

No, I don't.
-Do you like drugstore makeup?

I live off of drugstore makeup, I think people need to give it more credit!
-Do you go to CCO's? (cosmetic company outlets)

The closest to me is in a different state, but my best friend and I take a trip up to the state every year on her birthday and always make the effort to stay the weekend and visit the CCO's. So I save up for when I can go. :)
-Did you ever consider taking make-up classes?

Not really...
-Are you clumsy in putting on makeup?

Not that I know....
-Name a makeup crime that you hate?

Uhm. When someone with bad acne skin trys to pack on a bunch of pressed powder with a sponge and it gets REALLY cakey and flaky...ewwy.
-Do you like colorful shades of makeup (lipstick,eyeshadow) or neutral ones?

I'm more of a neutral person, because usually when I wear makeup I'm going to school, but on occasion I'll wear some fun bright colors. :)
-Which celebrity always has great make up?

Uhm. Eva Longoria. <3.
-If you could leave the house using just ONE make up item,what would you use?

Eyeliner. I usually just do eyeliner when I'm in a hurry.
-Could you ever leave the house without any makeup on?

I try not too, but sometimes I have to get out quick and i just don't look cute. :P
-Do you think you look good even without any makeup on?

Eh..I look alright...I don't look horrible, but I think I look better with atleast a little eyeliner on.
-In your opinion, what is the BEST makeup line?

Uhm. Benefit is great for high end, and MAC of course. But for drugstores, I love Revlon for their lipsticks, Maybelline for their eyeshadows, Rimmel for their...everything, Loreal H.I.P for their everything, and Milani for everything. hahah. I think that each drugstore makeup line has something specific that they are just great at...except CoverGirl, which sucks.
-What do you think of Makeup?

what kind of question is that?....
