Smokey Purple using Sugarpill

I wore this look last weekend when I went out with my gal pals. We just went to the OC Fair, nowhere fancy, but I wanted to play with makeup! This look is pretty simple, see below for details ...


NYX Jumbo Pencil Slate (on lid)
Sugarpill Poison Plum Shadow on lid and blended out
MAC Claire de Lune on Highlight and inner corner
UD 24/7 Liner in Binge on Bottom lash line
Sugarpill Love + over UD Binge
Stila Kajal Liner in Onyx (waterline)
NYX Studio Liquid Liner in Extreme Blue for top lash line


Too Faced Papa Don't Peach (I really need to use other blushes, LOL)

MAC Myth
NYX Mega Shine Gloss in Natural

C.O. Bigelow!

I hardly ever shop at Bath and Body works. I'm not a big fan of smelly lotions ... Jergens for me please! However, my cousin gave me a gift card a while back so I had to use it :-) I went the other day and got some shower gel, a candle, and this awesome lip balm! I'm crazy for chapsticks and lip balm, I always have to have some in my purse, or in my desk drawer at work.

Anyway, at B&B Works they have this brand of lip products by CO Bigelow. I've tried their Mentha Lip Shine in the past, but I wasn't a big fan of it, although it was nice and minty! It really wasn't bad, but I like products that actually provide moisture and healing (for example: Rosebud Salve). Anyway, I found this new product (new to me at least) by CO Bigelow called "My Favorite Night Balm": This overnight recovery lip balm works overtime, moisturizing and nourishing lips with rich Shea Butter for 8 hours, leaving them soft and smooth.

I LOVE THIS STUFF! All you need is a tiny amount, a little less than pea size. I apply right before going to sleep, and I can still feel the smoothness in the morning. This definitely helps if you wear lipsticks that tend to dry lips, for example matte lipsticks, or 'long lasting' lipsticks. Technically, it is always good to do a lip scrub, but if you don't have time to do that as often as you like, this is a great alternative!

Has anyone else tried other CO Bigelow products??
