Happy Holidays! Are you all ready for thanksgiving this Thursday? I think I am, I got all of my grocery shopping done this morning and ready for a cooking extravaganza this Wednesday and Thursday! My family will be having a yummy traditional thankgiving dinner early in the afternoon and then later that night we will be meeting with some wonderful friends of the family for a later thanksgiving dinner and fun!! How about you? What are you doing for Thanksgiving? I hope being safe and enjoying your loved ones.

In the midst of it all, I have another video to share with you all. I know you already seen my Pinup inspired makeup look video on youtube with the beautiful holiday red lipstick, right? Well, today I am going to share with you my top 5 favorite red lipsticks in order to help you find that fabulous red for the holiday season too! In this post you will find a variety of price points, from drugstore to beauty store products. It is always great to have variety! Coming in a #5. . .

 

#5: Loreal Colour Riche Lipcolour #315 "True Red", $6.99. L'Oreal Colour Riche is deep, luminous color in a weightless, creamy texture. Dewy, botanical formulations that moisturizes, condition, and last for hours without flaking or splitting. I picked this one out a while back in February because I wanted a red that was light weight and not over powering either. I also like the price point of this one if you did not want to spend a lot of money.
 

#4: Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics liptars: NSFW, $13 OCC Lip Tar combines the longevity of a lipstick, with the ease of application of a gloss. This tar goes on slick and moist, and dries down to a satin finish. Ultra-saturated in color OCC Lip Tar is 100% Vegan and Cruelty-Free, and is also free of parabens and other harsh preservatives. A simple, elegant formula that contains Hemp Oil, Peppermint Oil and Vitamin E. I little bit of this lovely goes a long way. I am not kidding. If you have not seen my review on the OCC liptars click "here" to see my full review and video.

 

#3: SEPHORA COLLECTION Rouge Cream Lipstick Passion Red 03, $12 This lip color is a revamp of the iconic Sephora Lip Attitude Chic, this new hydrating formula provides improved coverage and is filled with pigment. The creamy texture softly glazes your lips, imparting just the right amount of color and sheen. They are not kidding, this lipstick glides on so easily and feel moist while wearing this dreamy color. I love the price point of this on too!!

 

#2: Buxom Big & Healthy Lip Stick Tokyo, $18 This cutie is a three-in-one lip perfector. Buxom Big & Healthy Lip Stick works three full-time jobs—it defines the shape of lips like a liner, fills them in with creamy velvet color, and then plumps them to their full buxom potential. It's a three-in-one lipstick that's quick and convenient for defined, colorful, buxom lips anytime, anywhere. When I need color in a quick minute without having to find a matching liner this one never fails me. It feels cool and soothing to the lip with a convenient sharpener on the end.

 

#1:MAKE UP FOR EVER Rouge Artist Intense 43 Moulin Rouge, $19 . This is a highly pigmented and long-lasting lipstick that delivers rich color in one stroke. This vibrant satin red lip color is formulated with 50% more pigment than the traditional lipstick, Rouge Artist Intense gives an immediate true-to-color result. A blend of three natural waxes, the creamy texture glides on effortlessly for a long-lasting hold. The extensive color and texture range provides unlimited creativity. I swear this color goes on so smooth and last me up to 5 hours before having to touch up. Love this red!!

Beauty Chameleon’s Skincare Favorites

washing-faceAlong with the change of the season hence the change in my skincare regime. when it is hot and humid my skincare with be light and easy, however when the season changes to cold conditions my skincare will be a little more intensive in order to keep the skin smooth, hydrated, and clear. Many people ask me on a regular basis, what do you use on your skin? Honestly, my skincare can change from time to time. So, today I decided to create this post and share with you all what I am using and loving on my skin so far.

Pre-Cleansing: I will do this in order to get most of my makeup off, so that I can get a really good deep clean with my cleansers.

Neutrogena Make-Up Remover Cleansing Towelettes Night Calming, $7.49
Neutrogena Oil-Free Eye Makeup Remover, $7.99

Cleansing/Tone Routine:
Bliss Fabulous Foaming Face Wash 6.7 oz, $22

Night:Murad Perfecting Night Cream 1.7 oz,$49
Eye Cream:Boscia Enlivening Amino-AG Eye Treatment .5 oz,$38

All of the products listed above help keep my skin nice and clear, however if on a budget you can also find wonderful skincare from the drugstore that works just as well for less.  Some of my favorite drugstore skincare brands are Neutrogena,  Garnier, and Loreal.

Favorite Drugstore:

Cleanser/Tone:
L’Oreal Skin Genesis Deep Purifiying Foaming Cream Cleanser$7.99

So, my point is don’t feel like you have to go spend hundreds of dollars on skincare if the budget doesn’t not call for it, okay 🙂 If your budget allows for you to splurge then go for it and have fun trying some of the celebrity tired and spa used products available at sephora. Anyway, I know many of you care for your skin using various products too and I am curious to know what are your favorite luxury and drugstore brands you used to care for your skin? Please share 🙂
