The Lash Project Gluten Free Conditioning Mascara

20140802-181214-65534259.jpg

When I first heard the news that Red Apple Lipstick was formulating an all-natural, gluten-free and non-toxic mascara, I just KNEW it would be amazing. Every single  product they create and I’ve had the pleasure to  try, I have loved. I’m so excited to share with you this new mascara that is truly wonderful…

We all know how hard and frustrating it can be to find a good natural mascara. The unique things about this mascara in particular? It is not only gluten free, vegan, non GMO, cruelty free, but is also free of soy, dairy, corn, pretty much all things that can cause allergies or irritations. If you are someone with sensitive eyes like me (as well as sensitive “everything”..): this is most likely THE mascara for you.

The Lash Project Lash Conditioner Mascara is rightfully named because it not only volumizes and  lengthens but it also works to protect and nourish the lashes! It is like a mascara and treatment in one. I for one  want to protect my lashes. I have no problem growing my eyebrows out, but for some reason my eyelashes seem immune to new growth. Maybe it’s a genetic thing! How many of us have lost precious lashes to harsh mascaras that leave  lashes feeling hard and let’s not even get into trying to wash off some of those mascaras… I’ve lost too many lashes to go down that route again!! And my personal opinion of fake eyelashes are that I love them for occasional use (with only non-toxic glue of course) when going for ultra glam makeup looks. But I need (and found) my new daily go-to mascara.

You can purchase the Lash Project 2-IN-1 Mascara + Conditioner here on Red Apple Lipstick’s website. Use the code “BBB” at checkout to receive 22% off of a $50 order or more!!

What’s on my Wishlist…

WISHLISTTT

 

 

I’m back with my 6th wishlist! (Feel free to look back on my older wishlists! 12345.) This month’s wishlist has been inspired by many fellow bloggers. I haven’t done one in awhile because I like to really save the products that I truly am LUSTING over, not just wanting, because if I did it any other way it would be mile long! Most of these products have been on my radar for awhile now while a few others are new discoveries. Either way, I am coveting all of these. Why is it so exciting to discover new products? I love when I place an order and then my anticipation goes sky high waiting for the order to arrive…then unwrapping and opening the beautiful package. Best of all, trying out the new special creations! Who else is with me on this? How blessed are we to have all these choices?

  1. Balm Balm Frankincense Deep Cleansing Balm – I can’t get enough of cleansing balms. They are so lovely. I love to use them to remove makeup or to use as hydrating masks. I always look forward to using them at night as a part of my double-cleansing method. This balm was recommended by a fellow blogger, Fern & Moss, I saw her mention this a few times and I checked out the ingredients and was very impressed.
  2. Belle De Nuit Eye Mask – I have seen this mentioned lately on so many different sites. It seems incredibly relaxing and I could use all of the extra help I can get when it comes to a good nights sleep!
  3. Jade Facial Roller - Am I the only one that just thinks this seems like so much fun? I can just picture myself getting all relaxed before bed and bringing out this beautiful jade facial roller to use on my face and neck. It just seems so calming and decadent. Plus it has amazing reviews and is said to “rejuvenate face and neck skin”. We all want that!
  4. Inika Mineral Foundation – I am a huge mineral makeup fan. I seem to always revert back to applying minerals after using creams or liquids for awhile. I find they work with my skin the most naturally and are also the least reactive as they contain such simple ingredients. I’ve heard rave reviews about this particular mineral foundation and have been lusting after it for quite awhile now! It seems my color match would most likely be “Strength”, which by the way, makes me want it more. They have the best names for their colors. Love. Not to mention it’s an Australian company and I love, love, love Sydney!
  5. One Love Organics Cleansing Sponge – I won’t lie: I am attracted to cute packaging and this heart shape is no exception. The fact that it’s a heart is one thing and then knowing it’s made by OLO makes me want it even more. I know this baby would fit in perfectly with my products and look so cute doing it  :)
  6. ARCONA Gentle Solution – When I read this article interviewing Nicolle Mackinnon and Susannah Compton of No More Dirty Looks and read that Arcona Gentle Solution was the product that changed Nicole’s skin, I had to investigate. When I read the ingredients and saw that it’s specially formulated for sensitive skin, I knew I had to have it.
  7. Beauty Without Cruelty Concealer – I have just learned of this concealer thanks to this post by the lovely Annabel of Fragmented Splendour who also has this on her wishlist! What can I say? I want want want it. It seems so convenient to have a concealer in a pencil form like this, not only for travel but for on-the-go touch-ups and also to zero in at targeted areas. I love the simplicity of the ingredients and it has a crazy amount of amazing reviews
  8. Earth tu Face Cleanser – I first heard about this cleanser from one of my absolute favorite blogs out there, Free + Native. After I saw a few posts where this product was featured, I noticed more and more people were mentioning it and it peeked my curiosity. I am very impressed with the ingredients and am in need of a cleanser like this.
  9. Sunday Riley Juno Face Oil – This facial oil is described as “An enhancing, transformative lipid serum.” The beautiful Britta Aragon of CV Skinlabs mentioned this facial oil in my interview with her. That combined with the description of this oil as “obsession worthy glow” was enough to sell me on it! The ingredients sound so beautiful: Meadowfoam Seed Oil, Broccoli Oil, Carrot Oil, Chardonnay Grape Oil, Black Cumin, Cranberry Seed Oil, Berry Seed Blend (Blackberry, Blueberry, Raspberry). It says this oil is for all skin types including eczema prone.

Have you tried any of these products that I am lusting over? What is on YOUR wishlist? Share in the comments!!!

RMS Beauty Sublime Lip Shine

Processed with VSCOcam with c1 preset

 

RMS Beauty Sublime Lip Shine is my new favorite lip color for Summer! When I first spotted the fuchsia, hot pink color in the pot, my first thought was “there is no way I can pull off that strong color!”. It seemed so bold. Boy was I wrong!  It is incredibly flattering on all skin tones and it instantly brightens the complexion. If you are scared of it being too pink, don’t be! It’s very buildable. You can wear it sheer to create a slight baby pink color or add more layers to make it more pigmented. It never looks like too much product is on my lips no matter how many layers of this I apply and the best part is that IT IS SO MOISTURIZING. It feels like a lip balm + lip tint all in one. It also lasts throughout the entire day on me and I find that by the end of the day while some of the pigment may have lessened, the pink color still lasts and looks natural and beautiful on my lips. You could also wear this on your cheeks as well!

Ingredients: castor seed oil*, coconut oil*, moringa oil*, carnauba wax*, cocoa seed butter*, beeswax*, centella asiatica extract, rosemary extract*, vitamin e. may contain + / – : red iron oxide ci 77491, yellow iron oxide ci 77492, black iron oxide ci 77499, titanium dioxide ci 77891, mica ci 77019. *Certified Organic. This product is gluten-free.

Where to buy: I purchased my Lip Shine on Spirit Beauty Lounge for $25.00!

Makeup Look: Gypsy Goddess

GODDESS

I recently came across this beautiful hair piece from asos that I had lost amongst my many hair accessories for quite some time. When I found it I felt really inspired to do a dramatic gypsy goddess look. Although it’s Spring here and bright lip colors are what’s “in”, I still like to rock a good dark lip every now and then!

GODDESS2

 

Prep + Prime: Start by moisturizing the skin with a light but hydrating oil. I used Sibu Beauty SeabuckthornSeed Oil and added a light layer of Antipodes Vanilla Pod Hydrating Cream (review here) on top.

Correct + Conceal: To combat my stubborn dark circles I applied Kjaer Weis Cream Foundation in “Like Porcelain” (review here) to the under eyes and on the eyelids to act as an eyeshadow primer. I also used the Kjaer Weis foundation as a concealer around any other areas that needed covering (ie: nose, chin). I blended everything out with a beauty blender.

Bronze + Illuminate: Who doesn’t want dewy skin? For an extra “glowy” look I dabbed RMS Beauty Living Luminizer (for those sensitive to coconut oil – I also use and love Ilia Beauty’s Polkadots & Moonbeams Illuminator) to the highest part of my cheekbones, down the bridge of my nose and on my cupid’s bow. To add some color to my cheeks I blended RMS Beauty Buruti Bronzer (again if sensitive to coconut oil, try Ilia’s Sway Bronzer) and Lip2Cheek in “Smile” to the apples of my cheeks.

Eyes: I started off by applying a light layer of Red Apple Lipstick Eyeshadow in “Porcelain” all over my lid and brow-bone. I then applied Alima Pure Eyeshadow in “Orchid” all over the lid, making sure not to go into the crease. For my crease color I used Red Apple Lipstick’s Pressed Eyeshadow in the color “Vamp”. I blended all three colors together and lined just the outer part of my eye with the Zuzu Luxe Liquid Eyeliner. To bring out the purple from the Alima Pure eyeshadow I applied two coats of Dr. Hauschka Volume Mascara in “Aubergine” and added false lashes using EcoTools non-toxic glue.

Lips: I prepped my lips with Dr. Bronner’s Organic Lipbalm and added two layers of Ilia Beauty “Ink Pot” Lipstick. I used the actual lipstick to line my lips before coloring in.

What do you think of this look? Would you wear a dark lip color in Spring? Would you rock a hair piece like this!? Share your thoughts in the comments! xx

 

 

Saffron Rouge Beauty Haul

haul

I was drawn in to order from Saffron Rouge recently after hearing about the promotion they have going on. Orders $95 and over receive a Tallulah Perfume 4ml absolutely free (a $33 value)! Enter the code CLASSY during checkout and the item will be added to your order automatically. I believe this promotion is still going on!

That promotion really sold me because I had already been wanting to order from Saffron Rouge and I also really wanted to try Tallulah Jane, so I ended up buying these goodies…

Makeup Look: Dramatic Winged Eyeliner + Pretty Pink Lips!

Hi Loves!

I apologize for my absence lately. Sometimes you need to just “unplug” yourself and I felt like I needed a break from the internet and took some time for myself. I originally had posted a photo of me on instagram mentioning this look and said it would be up in a few days and I really apologize for the delay. Many of you were curious as to what I used to achieve such a dramatic eyeliner look and I think you will be surprised at how few products it took to achieve this glamorous look.

Makeup Look: Green & Gray Smokey Eyes and Light Pink Lips

I recently received some beautiful all-natural pressed eye shadows from Red Apple Lipstick that I have been absolutely loving. I paired together some green and gray tones to create this Smokey-eye look with a slight winged liner to add some more depth and drama. I paired the eyes with a light pink lip and coral cheeks. Keep reading to see which products I used and how to re-create this look :)

Makeup Look: Dark Red Lips and Lots of Lashes!

IMG_0202x

I recently did an entire green beauty look for Organic Beauty Talk and I wanted to also share it on my blog as I think it’s a perfect look to wear with Valentine’s Day approaching! The dark lip is perfect for a sexy night out.

For this look I wanted to do something dramatic and yet wearable for this winter season. I combined a purple silvery eye shadow with some dark browns to balance out the color, warm rosy cheeks with a subtle glow, and of course, dark lips to complete the look! I’m also wearing some new false lashes from EcoTools and am very excited that they have a non-toxic eyelash glue. Finally, I can wear false lashes again without having to compromise my health standards. Of course, the lashes are optional but I like them on special occasions to add a little more drama to the entire look.

Red Apple Lipstick in “Fierce” is… FIERCE.

IMG_0147,jpg

This beauty of a lipstick is described as a “bold red wine” purple shade. This lipstick can be worn dark or much lighter. You can see in the first photo wearing this it almost appears a bit red and in the second shown it looks much more purple. The shade varies on how you apply it and the lighting. The color looks chocolate brown in the tube but when applied it looks much more like a deep purple and sometimes a deep red purple. It harkens the 1920’s era.

I cannot get enough of this color. It actually makes me FEEL fierce when I wear it and we could all go for feeling a little more fierce in our day to day lives, right?!

This lipstick is a Satin finish and is – Gluten Free, Paraben Free, Nut/Tree Nut Free, Fragrance Free, Soy Free, and Toxin Free

You can purchase Fierce here for $23.50 and keep a look out for more looks using Red Apple Lipstick products. I am incredibly impressed with their lip and eye products!

Face Of The Day: Lady In Red

I recently received some new makeup products from three all-natural brands (Modern Minerals Makeup, Genfiore Cosmetics and Red Apple Lipstick) that are all equally amazing and full of clean and pure ingredients. I am excited to showcase the incredible pigment in all three of these brands in this look that I put together. I hope you all enjoy it!

eyeeee

britttt

I only used four brushes (the eyeliner brush is not pictured above) for this entire look all from Modern Minerals Makeup. I am incredibly impressed with the quality of these brushes, they are soft and pack a lot of pigment!

Skin: I started by moisturizing my face with Evanhealy Whipped Shea Olive Leaf and then prepped my face with Vapour Organic Beauty Stratus Instant Skin Perfector.

Face & Cheeks: Modern Minerals Light Almond Foundation, Modern Minerals Heaven Blush with Genfiore Cosmetics Hydrasheer Pressed Mineral Blush in the color “Passion Rose” on top and used as a light contour. I used the same brush to apply all of these colors; the Modern Minerals Duo Fiber Skunk Brush.

Eyes: I started by applying Modern Minerals Oasis Eyeshadow (a gorgeous Turquoise + Teal color) all over the lid of my eye using the Duo Fiber Mini Round Brush and then lightly blended the same color into the crease using the Duo Fiber Tapered Blending Brush. To add more of a bright pop of color I applied Genfiore Mineral Pressed Eye Color in Mare Azzurro to the center part of my eyelid, I applied this using my finger because this picks up much more product and gives more pigmentation. To add some light to my inner eyes and browbone I applied Modern Minerals Seychelles Eyeshadow (a light shell pink). To finish the eye look I applied a tiny bit of Genfiore Hydrasheer Cream Eyeliner in Black using the Modern Minerals Duo Fiber Angle Brush to the outer part of my eye.

Lips: I wanted to make my lips stand out but not take away from the dramatic eye color so I decided to use a beautiful raspberry tinted gloss: Red Apple Lipstick Lipgloss in Queen Of Hearts has a wonderful shine to it and it also smells like spearmint!
