Best Red Lipsticks

Last month I realized I had lost my favorite red lipstick (Illamasqua Maneater) and when I went to buy a new one I found out Sephora had stopped carrying it. I spent some time trying to hunt it down before finally admitting to myself that I needed to find a new signature red lipstick. Red lipstick is one of my favorite topics so I thought it would be a fun opportunity to do some research and find out our favorites.  We asked for reccomendations on Instagram and Facebook and then went shopping. We tried 40 different lipsticks, everything from drugstore brands to makeup counter brands and even tried a few high-end designer brands. Here is what we found out. Click through for our list of 12 Best Lipsticks

Gemvara Giveaway

I’ve got a great giveaway today! Have you heard of Gemvara? It is a super easy way to buy customizable jewelry. They have a great selection and the process is super easy.  Once I picked out a few, I could totally customize them using 20 different gemstones and 9 different metals. And there is no stress about buying them sight unseen because Gemvara offers 101-day returns (even on customized and engraved pieces.) They make all of the jewelry in New York and the shipping is super fast. I ended up customizing the Micropave Band for myself – I loved the classic look of the diamonds & gold band. But the Zoe Band with black diamonds also caught my eye. It’s an easy way to get unique jewelry at a great price.

Gorman

Gorman is an Australian brand that makes colorful and fun clothing. (If you follow my instagram then you know I’m a huge Gorman fan, they make all of my favorite dresses.) I was introduced to them last year and my husband jokes I should have a direct deposit to them because that’s where I spend all my money anyway. I love that their stuff is so different and they have great prints and cuts. They recently launched a line of homegoods and it’s so good I can’t believe it. How amazing is that eye plate? The shipping from Australia is totally fast and not too expensive. If you are shopping for clothes make sure you get the right size in Australian sizing (this sizing chart was accurate for me.) They also have amazing sales. I follow them on Facebook and Instagram and get great deals on their dresses.) Have you ever heard of Gorman?

Yay! It’s time to stock up on summer party clothes! In June, I love refreshing my closet with bright colors and fun prints that I can wear throughout the warmer months.  Here’s an outfit that I found using Chippmunk. Have you guys tried their service yet? It’s the easiest way to find online shopping deals. When I’m online, I just type in the names of my favorite stores and it provides coupons  & links to the best sales. Chippmunk also verifies each code so there aren’t expired coupons on the site. I really love it and use it all the time. (PS – Coupons for Nordstrom, Asos, & J.Crew!)
