Hello Everyone! I am back with an exciting new post on an amazing makeup artist and my friend Sasha Colina. I had the honor of attending her first ever class "Glam 101" at the brand new Salon Le Rouge in Burlingame, California.

Swatch of The Day - NARS Audacious lipstick in Dominique

Price - $32
Availability - NARS Cosmetics & Barney's New York
Review - NARS Audacious Lipstick in Dominique is exclusive to & Barney's New York. The pigmentation on this lipstick was simply amazing. Full complete coverage with one swipe. Dominique is a unique color that I can only slightly compare to RiRi Boy from the RiRi Hearts MAC Collection. The lipstick had excellent staying power and needed minor touch ups after eating. Now I know the price is steep and believe me when I say that I was going back and forth on whether to purchase or not. After wearing it out for an entire day and witnessing the staying power and not to mention how beautiful this color is I do feel slightly better about the price. I am trying to fight the urge in splurging on more colors but I don't know how long I can resist collecting all of the NARS Audacious lipsticks.

Swatch of The Day - Bite Beauty Matte Crème Lip Crayon in Aubergine

Price - $24
Availability -
Review - Bite Beauty has launched their new Matte Crème Lip Crayons and I am in love! I immediately gravitated towards the shade Aubergine. Love at first swatch! The pigmentation on these bad boys are amazing. No need to layer this on. Not only is this color gorgeous and pigmented but it is extremely comfortable to wear. It is described as a matte finish but I would say it's more of a satin matte finish leaning more towards matte. It felt nourishing on my lips. The color stayed highly pigmented throughout the entire day and only required minor touch ups after eating and drinking. I'm definitely heading back to grab more shades!

Swatch of The Day - MAC Cosmetics A Novel Romance Lingering Kiss and Hearts Aflame Lipstick

» Price -  $16
» Availability - MAC Cosmetics
» Overall Rating - MAC Cosmetics recently launched their latest collection A Novel Romance. Not much caught my eye from the collection except these two gorgeous lipsticks. Lingering Kiss is described as a deep plum red on MAC's website. I am OBSESSED with this color. A few Beauty Blogs that I have read compared this color to Talk That Talk from the Rihanna collection that I sadly did not get a chance to grab. The application was smooth and reached opaque coverage with the first swipe. Hearts Aflame is described as a mid tone brick red. This color was reminiscent of Rocker lipstick sans the micro glitter. This color stayed opaque for over 7 hours! Check your local MAC Store or counter for availability.

L.A. Girl Cosmetics Glazed Lip Paint Swatches

L.A. Girl Cosmetics just released their brand new collection of glazed lip paint. I was introduced to this brand while I was at the PHAMExpo that just took place in June. I was intrigued to try out these lip paints because I am a fan of the Too Faced Melted lipsticks and thought these looked quite similar in concept and packaging.
