Revlon Matte Mauve It Over and Pink Pout Lipstick Swatches

Hey! This is my second attempt trying Revlon Matte Lipsticks since the first one wasn't too great. But I thought I would give it a try since I heard many good things about these lipsticks and I was curious enough to test them out. was amazed by how good they are!

Revlon Matte Mauve It Over (003) and Pink Pout (002) Lipstick

Revlon Matte Mauve It Over (003)
Dry but creamy light red/brown color that I would not consider Mauve since it looks more red than pink/purple. Color is almost the same color as my lips and I really like that. I feel like it can even be worn alone if your lips are not chapped. It's a great everyday color.

Revlon Matte Pink Pout (002)
Dry but creamy pink with brown/purple undertones. I thought this color would look too chalky on me but I'm amazed how it actually compliments my skin. It's a color that looks nice with some gloss but I love this pink, it really unique. Definitely recommend for olive skintones.

I find these colors both very wearable and definitely recommend these two. These are much WAY better than the first one I tried Nude Attitude (001) which was too drying and looked too chalky on my lips. To wear these you have to make sure your lips are not chappy since it will show up a lot with these too.

I hope this was helpful. More posts coming soon. Bye :)

Mulberry For Target Haul Madness

With all the hype about Mulberry bags (which usually sell for about ~$900) having a collection in Target for prices that range from $15-$50 is completely awesome. I called up all my local Target stores for these bags but they were all sold out! But I was able to find only 2 Target's up in the Bronx, NY which is where I found them! When I spoke to the store employee on the phone he told me there were 8 in the morning and I called back asking how many were left and he said 2-3 of the style I wanted and said that they were going fast! So, later on yesterday(10-15-10) I drove all the way there and a found there was a good handful but not too many. They had plenty of the Large Cerise Leopard Satchel in Pink and the Pebble Large Tote in Black (which is one I got)!

The Mulberry Look

All the Target versions of the bag come with this huge heart charm that I feel should be discarded immediately because it makes the bag look too pre-teenish. But I will show you how they look with it just because that's the way I bought it.

Mulberry for Target Denim Satchel in Blue
This is the one I really wanted because I thought it was super cute and gave the briefcase look. I prefer this one over the larger one because I felt the shorter handles looked better on it. This is definitely a must have. There were only 3 of these left from when I went yesterday night.

Mulberry for Target Pebble Large Tote in Black
I love how this bag looks very mature and has the signature turnlock. It looks very sophisticated and classy. I love how it's big enough to fit my laptop and other needs.

Mulberry for Target Pebble Mini Crossbody in Black
There was only one of these left! It was so cute that I couldn't resist, it is really tiny, smaller than I imagined from the website. But for the price I thought I'd get it because it's cute and I thought I wouldn't have another chance to buy it.

The reason I got these is because I want a Mulberry apart of my collection even though its Mulberry for Target. I like the fact that it has the signature briefcase look. Maybe when I'm older and rich I can afford to save up and buy the real ones but for now I'll be rockin these!

Thanks for reading :)

Chanel Nailpolish Dupes from Forever21

Hey guys. This is my version of a look Temptalia did using Chanel Nailpolishes from the Chanel Noir et Or Collection from Spring 2010 (long overdue post).
View Temptalia's swatches here for comparison.

These nailpolishes did not copy Chanel's idea since I purchased them before the collection launched. But the idea of them together is a fantastic combo. The reason I wanted to share this is becuase I know these are two nailpolishes that became instantly sold out.

Without flash

In the process, The LA Girls Matte Nailpolish alone.

Together they make a great combo that looks luxurious! Similar to Chanel Black Velvet + Illusion d’Or Nail Lacquers

I hope this was helpful thanks for reading. :)

Revlon Colorburst Lipsticks in Crimson and Plum

Hey guys, this is my second review on Revlon Colorburst Lipsticks. These are actually two colors that my mom bought for herself since she wears bold lipstick colors everyday (like birght reds) but I decided to swatch them before I gave them to her. And I must say I really love these two colors, I was so surprised how flattering they were and want to keep them! I thought these were also two perfect reds for the fall.

Revlon Colorburst Lipsticks in Crimson (095) and Plum (010)

Plum (010) - When I first opened this from the tube I was so afraid that this color was a very very dark reddened plum. But when I put it on my lips, it looked a bit more like a maroon/burgundy color that I absolutely love! I love how the finish is a bit glossy so it doesn't make my lips look dry. It was also very long lasting. I will show some pictures I took on my webcam after wearing it for 3-4 hours.

Crimson (095) - I thought I was going to look riduculous with red lips but it actually looked very flattering. This is a medium/deep red similar to MAC Dubonnet, possibly a dupe. It's very creamy and glossy and lasted long too. I definatly recommend this to everyone.
