Viva Glam Nicki Lip of the Day

Hey, Glamour Dolls!

I am back with my lip of the day that I promised... this is how Mac Viva Glam Nicki lipstick looks on my skin. I cannot wear this lipstick alone, it looks really pasty, which is a huge makeup "don't" for me. I will advise to please exfoliate your lips before applying it, any dead skin will show up in the application. It's a pretty yellow-based pink...I think the yellow base makes it so eye catching.

I pair it with a my Nyx chestnut liner (any brown lip liner will do), it mutes the pink down and eliminates the pasty look...I love how it turns out. This is definitely a brown-girl friendly shade and really all of the Viva Glam lipsticks are made to compliment any skin tone, if you don't already have it-you should get it. As always, the $14.50 from the Viva Glam lippies goes to supporting Aid's victims, buying a tube is a win-win situation.


Do you own Viva Nicki? How do you like it?

It looks pretty on you, hun!

I have it and wear the NYX expresso lipliner with it to tone it down or deep purple to transform the color all together.
Ms. Viva Glam said…
Thanks, Miss Dre!

I'm going to try it with a purple lip liner and see how it looks...good tip.

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!


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…

Mac Face and Body Foundation Review

One of my most used foundations is the Mac Face and Body liquid foundation. I've been promising a  review on it, so here it is.

Product Claims
"A water-based, water-resistant foundation that provides long-lasting, natural coverage for face and/or body. Ideal for all skin types. Face and Body Foundation provides sheer, natural looking coverage in an easy to blend, water-resistant formula. The long-lasting formula is available in a wide range of colours and contains several emollients to help moisturize and condition the skin. It delivers professional looking results that meet the exacting standards of beauty photography and is ideal for perfecting the face and body."

-Price is $32.50 retail and about $19 if you're a Mac pro card member (That could be a con based on your finances).
-For the price you pay it gives you a lot of foundation. It's in a 4 fl oz bottle.
-Because it's water based it doesn't feel heavy, it feels very light on the face.

Since I'm a BzzAgent, I was sent some exclusive products from the Burt's Bees line for my consideration. I was sent the Sensitive Skin Facial Cleanser and the Sensitive Daily Moisturizing Cream.
