Lipstick Haul & Swatches (Pic Heavy)

Sooo... last month in October I went crazy with lipsticks, mind you-I'm a lip gloss girl, so why did I buy new lipsticks when I have about a dozen that I don't wear that much? Beats me, but the real reason is because I wanted to purchase lipsticks from other brands. All of my lipsticks are from Mac so I wanted to broaden my horizons.

Anyway, I bought 1 lipstick from Black Radiance, 1 from Wet n Wild and 2 lipsticks from Iman. It was my first time purchasing these lipsticks from all three brands. I can honestly say that all of the lipsticks were very moisturizing and the color doesn't fade after wearing it for a few hours. The prices ranged from .99 cent to $9.00.

Iman Saffron lipstick ($9) pictured below: This is another gorgeous color. It's a pretty gold color. It looks great alone or with a brown lip liner.



Black Radiance Lipstick Glazed Beige 5032 ($3) pictured below: I purchased it from CVS and it's a brownish-gold color.



Wet n Wild Pink Lipstick Breeze 547 B (.99) pictured below: I also purchased this from CVS. It's a sheer baby-pink color with shimmer. It's a very light shade.

How I Refurbished my Louis Vuitton Speedy...

I bought an authentic preloved Louis Vuitton Damier Speedy bag a few months back. While I was so excited to finally get the bag and wear it, I realized (at that time of buying and when I received it) that the bag had some wear on it that could use some fixing up. After searching online, I found a blogger, Lollipuff, who posted an article on how to refurbish LV bags.

Based on the recommendations in the post, I used the following products: Mr. Clean Magic Eraser, Blue Magic Metal Polish cream (tube) and Cadillac Boot and Shine leather conditioner. I also used laundry detergent and baby wipes. All of the products used can be used on any bag to spruce it up. Read on for the deets, to see how you can spruce up your handbag!



Before


At first glance, the bag had some sheen on the exterior. Most of the brass fixtures had green tarnishing (which happens with aging of brass). The leather handles were dull. The bag had lost some of its shape. The inside was the kicker! The red interior was terrib…
