Hi! I've been on the hunt for a pigmented purple lipstick (or liquid lipstick) that would be suitable for medium tan skin & was wondering if you had any good recommendations? Something not too pricey. Thank you in advance! :)

MAC Heroine lipstick was just made permanent!

Maybelline Color Elixir in Vision in Violet (on far right). It’s technically a lip gloss because it has shine but it’s not sticky like a lip gloss at all it’s very smooth and pigmented! 

Maybelline Brazen Berry (second to the left) from the Vivids line, Hot Plum is a less true purple version with more pink

Covergirl Divine, more of a lighter pinky purple (MAC Up the Amp dupe)

What are the best makeup wipes? I have used the neutrogena ones, worked for a while then broke me out.. used the target cheap brand and broke me out too. Help?

Recently I’ve been using and loving the Simple makeup wipes! They are the most gentle on my skin, no burning or tingling. They have no smell which is great because ones with a strong fragrance can sometimes be more irritating to the skin. 

Normally around $5/7

what are some drug store lotions that are anti-acne but also moisturizing? all the lotions that i've used break me out...

Try Clean & Clear Dual Action Moisturizer! It has acne medication in it.

Cetaphil’s moisturizer is usually a trusty one, many dermatologists recommend it for a drugstore moisturizer including mine. 

The Simple line sold at drugstores is also great for sensitive skin which it seems like you might have. 

The ones breaking you out could also be too thick for your skin. Sometimes thick cream moisturizers can clog pores if you have oily skin. Moisturizers with added perfume can also cause break outs.

Good luck :)

What are some drugstore/high-end foundations that give a natural finish? Not too heavy, a little lightweight. I have oily skin. Thank you!!! I love your blog :)

Try ones like

  • Loreal True Match or Loreal True Match Lumi which is slightly more dewy/luminous
  • Urban Decay Naked
  • Garnier BB Cream for oily/combination skin
  • Revlon Nearly Naked
  • Estee Lauder Double Wear Light (long wearing but more light weight than original Double Wear)
  • Makeup Forever Face & Body foundation

For a natural finish remember with powder less is more! You don’t want to look too matte and powdery because naturally the skin isnt super matte :)
