Have We Found the Perfect Lipstick Duo?

Swedish Jealousy Week - Weekend Lipstick Duo
Beauty Brite Disclosure

I’ll be the first to admit that I love when makeup products come in sets. It’s a great way to get multiple items at an excellent deal, and you’re getting the opportunity to try out a brand. So, of course, I jumped at the change to test out a lipstick duo that looked like the perfect pair for a day to night look.

About Swedish Jealousy

Swedish Jealousy is a new-to-me brand that created makeup for all skin tones. The duo who founded the company wanted to “bridge the gap usually found in makeup,” because they couldn’t share a tube of lipstick. They worked hard to create and test out dozens of lipstick formulas until they found the two perfect shades that looked incredible on both of them. 

The brand is Cruelty-Free, Paraben-Free, and Gluten-Free. Let’s take a look at the lipstick duo!

Week/Weekend Duo Lip Set

Not going to lie, I just about squealed when I opened this package and saw both of the lipstick shades. They’re wearable for both day and night looks and works well on all skin tones, which was important to the founders.

The Week/Weekend Duo Lip Set ($23.50) features Week, a nude rose pink, that you can apply to the lips without a mirror, and weekend, is a bold, yet wearable watermelon red. Both lipsticks are creamy and apply to the lips evenly. They’re highly moisturizing and will last throughout the day. However, if you do a lot of snacking and drink a lot of coffee or water throughout the day, you will need to re-apply, which is normal with lipsticks.

I wear Week a lot, and I have even received several compliments from people, even asking me where I got it. The price for these two lipsticks is reasonable and worth checking out if you’re shopping around for a new lipstick brand to test out.

Beauty Brand Spotlight: Cleure

I love trying out new beauty products released in the beauty community. But nothing beats exploring a new beauty brand and testing out a few products. I had the opportunity to try a few products from the brand, Cleure

A Vintage Beauty Tool for Doing Lashes – is it a Must-Have?

reflection of lashes in the lash pro mirror

Do you want a beauty tool that makes your routine better? I’m always on the lookout for beauty tools that makes my beauty routine easier. If it can help knock off 15 minutes off my time – even better! While I work from home, I don’t want to spend lots of time doing my skincare and makeup in the morning. I had the opportunity to test out interesting beauty tools and organizers from La Dama to see if they’ll make things better.

About La Dama

If you are a fan of supporting small businesses, check out La Dama, which was first established in 2011 by makeup artist and licensed Esthetician Illiana La Dama, a TNT Agency certified in professional techniques, corrective and dramatic makeup. Her goal is to help teens discover methods that uncover one’s true radiance.  Her beauty tool will have everyone talking!

La Dama Girl Lash Pro Mirror Beauty Tool

The lash pro mirror looks like a vintage beauty tool mixed with something the dentist would use. The La Dama Girl Lash Pro Mirror retails for $25 and is designed for the lash artist. What makes this an ideal product is its size because it allows you to see the complete lash to ensure there are no gaps. You can also check for uniform or texture depending on what your lashing style is.

La Dama LD Lash Pro Tweezer Stand

I’ve owned and lost multiple pairs of tweezers, and they are not cheap, which is why I want a product to keep them organized. The LD Lash Pro Tweezer Stand ($25) is the ideal organizer! If you don’t have your makeup storage all set up currently, this stand is worth getting.

Lash Pro Mirror Review

I didn’t get to try this doing lashes since I recently found out that I am allergic to lash glue. However, this works great at doing my liner and mascara. While I wouldn’t do my brows using this, it’s a great tool for quick checkups. With that said, I can see this product being helpful when it comes to doing lashes. There may be a learning curve with the mirror, but it’s well worth it!

Overall Thoughts on These Beauty Tools

The vintage-style lash mirror is an excellent product for lash pros, and the tweezer stand is perfect for anyone looking for affordable ways to store their beauty tools. If you want to try something new, then I highly recommend them. But if I had to choose between the two, I’m enjoying the stand! It’s a product that I would purchase.

Let us know which of these two La Dama products you’d be interested in trying!

Update your shades

Let’s start with cool new shades! My son and I like to wear our cool shades before we leave the house. When I know we’ll be gone for a few hours, I remind him to grab his sunglasses. He knows it is part of our routine. He has one pair of sunglasses now and I wanted him to have a few other pairs to choose from!  It’s always nice to update and try new frames! Always look for sunglasses that offer 100% UVA/UVB protection.

Exploring New Beauty Products with C’est Moi

We tried the Visual Artist Makeup Crayon set and excited to share what we think. Did you know this set can be found at Target!?

When it comes to makeup, I always tell people to do what makes them happy. If you want to go neutral, do it. If you want to wear the boldest shadows, rock it out! Makeup lets us explore who we are and our creativity. However, many people don’t always have the money to expand their collection, especially if they’re unsure whether or not the bold colors will work out. This is where brands like C’est Moi come into play.

About the Brand & What was Sent

This clean beauty brand offers a wide variety of products from skincare to color cosmetics. I’ve been called “basic” many times because I always go for the neutral shadows, so when I was given the opportunity to step outside my typical comfort zone, I couldn’t say no. The brand was kind enough to send their Visual Artist Makeup Crayon (set of 6) to try out, and I couldn’t wait to get my hands on these and try something different. The six shades in the set include:

  • Night: Black
  • Ruby: Red
  • Sapphire: Navy Blue
  • Leaf: Green
  • Daffodil: Bright Yellow
  • Dove: White

There are many benefits to using these products, which include:

  • Made for delicate skin types
  • NO – Talc, Fragrance, Parabens, Phthalates, Sulfates, Mineral oil, or Propylene Glycol
  • Dermatologist tested
  • Clinically tested on sensitive skin
  • Hypoallergenic

Visual Artist Makeup Crayon

The shadow pencils glide on nicely and fairly easy to work with. Everyone is different, but sometimes you have to work quickly with cream products to avoid any creasing. My eyelids crease like you wouldn’t believe, so I have to work quickly – other people may not. The colors are fun, bright, and can be used with any bold eye look you’re going for. At the price point $25 for the Visual Artist Makeup Crayon set of 6, it’s worth stepping outside your normal looks to try something new.

The white makes a great base to help eye shadows pop more, and the black works as a liner, as long as you set it with a black shadow. If you’re really good and working with cream products and shadows, the Visual Artist Makeup Crayon can also be used to darken up your look a little bit.

Overall Thoughts

While $25 can be a little bit more than what some people may want to spend, but you are getting six shadow sticks in the Visual Artist Makeup Crayon set to work with. That’s less than $5 a pencil. I’m enjoying these shadow pencils, and it works out great that they’re a clean brand since I’m moving to only use clean and cruelty-free brands
