Lime Crime Diamond Crushers

Glittery. Versatile. Amazing. These iredescent lip toppers instantly double your lip color collection as these little beauties can be worn alone or on top of your favorite lip product. It is a perfect addition when wanting to add a little drama to your usual look.

The Diamond Crushers formula is non-sticky and glides easily over the lips. The glitter stays where it’s supposed to and doesn’t get all over your face.

The Lime Crime website describes them as, a weightless water-based formula that goes on matte and dries to a smudge-proof finish. Can be worn alone or over liquid matte lipstick without making it run, and the lightweight water-based formula is filled with light-reflective iridescent shimmers that dance and glisten with you as you move. 

Ten beautiful, sparkling shades including:

  • Choke (baby pink/baby blue)
  • Lit (rose gold)
  • Cleopatra (blush/gold)
  • Acid Fairy (lavender/mint)
  • Black Unicorn (black rainbow)
  • Cheap Thrill (sunset/rose)
  • Dope (cotton candy pink/champagne)
  • Strip (bright pink)
  • Fluke (mauve/blue)
  • Trip (purple/turquoise)

Available for $18 on the Lime Crime website and some shades are available on ASOS as well.

DIY Firework Lashes

Materials:

  • Artificial lashes of your choice (I used Dodo Lashes, style D115).
  • Cosmetic grade glitter.
  • Glitter adhesive (I used Sprinkles Glue from Beauty Bakerie).

Process:

  • While leaving your lashes in their tray, brush a third (or however much you are wanting for your first glitter) with glitter adhesive.
  • Repeat the process with the rest of the lash.
  • After the tops have dried fully, gently remove them from their tray, and repeat the process with the bottom side of the lashes.
  • Once both sides have dried, you are ready to apply.

Thanks for reading and have a great 4th of July! ๐Ÿค—

Tree Hut Shea Sugar Scrub

Voted one of Allure’s Readers’ Choice winners in 2016, the Tree Hut Shea Sugar Scrubs are definitely worth trying out; especially if you are looking to get your skin summer ready. 

The shea sugar scrubs come in several different scent combinations, including: Coconut Lime, Marula & Jasmine, Moroccan Rose, Brazilian Nut, Tropical Mango, Pomegranate Acai, Hawaiian Kukui, Passion Fruit & Guava, Lychee & Plum, and Original Shea.

I have tried the three pictured above, and would absolutely repurchase them. It is a very gentle scrub that exfoliated very well and leaves your skin feeling very soft and moisturized. 

The application is simple and self-explanatory. You just scoop out the desired amount of product into your hand and apply in a circular motion to the area of the body you want to exfoliate. The sugar disintegrates as you scrub, and moisturizes your skin. Once you’ve scrubbed enough, rinse with water. I usually use this product while I am in the shower, after I have washed with soap.

So where can you pick up these scrubs to try out for yourself, you ask. Ulta has a large selection (actually I think they carry every single version), and they often have a two for one, or buy one get the second 1/2 off deal. But for the regular price of $7.99 (18 oz.) you are still getting a great product for an inexpensive price tag. I have also seen them for sale on Amazon and at some Bed, Bath and Beyond stores.

Too Faced Papa Don’t Peach Blush

Back from the Too Faced archives comes the Papa Don’t Peach Blush. I have been wanting to try this for a while now, but finally the time has come and based on the last few weeks of using it, I am very happy that Too Faced decided to bring this new and improved version back into existence.

If you haven’t already heard the hype or you have yet to try this sweet peach out for yourself, let me give you the highlights. First, it smells AMAZING! Seriously, the peachy aroma goodness is definitely one of its greatest selling points. Second, the adorable packaging. It is cute and functional. The compact is a magnetized tin, and kind of reminds me of vintage makeup compacts. Third, and probably the most important is the sheer quality of the product. The blush itself is a beautiful warm and natural shade that has a good pigment, yet is buildable upon application to create either a very natural, radiant glow or a more dramatic, sun-kissed bronzed effect.

Other reviews comment on its versatility as a highlighter as well, but because my skin is so fair that is not an option I can speak of first-hand. Review after review also echo the positive qualities I mentioned above which clearly demonstrate the need to try this product out if you are in the market for a new blush.

Ratings:

For $30 at Sephora, Ulta, or the Too Faced website, you will get a fairly large pan of product (0.32 oz.), in which a little goes a long way. I’ve been using it daily for about two weeks now and it looks as though I just opened it. The imprinted image is still perfect! 

If you have any other questions about this product or if you’d like to share your experiences about the Too Faced Papa Don’t Peach Blush, please comment below.

Rimmel Provocalips – 16 Hour Lip Colour

Those of you who also follow me on Instagram @AllThingsAdoredOfficial know that I have been using the Rimmel London Provocalips quite religiously as of late. 

These are definitely one of my current favorites. 

The application is smooth, the colors are fantastic, and as advertised it lasts foreverrrrr!

Provocalips comes in 14 gorgeous shades and is available at Target, Walmart, and Ulta.

The Ulta website describes the product as follows: 

Rimmel’s Provocalips 16 Hour Kiss Proof Lip Colour is an exclusive 2 step product that locks in vibrant color for 16 hours. It’s so incredibly lightweight and flexible that it adapts to the movement of your lips. These seductively rich shades bring out that femme fatale in you! Wow color, incredible shine and zero trace!

I can totally agree with the lightweight and flexiblity claims, and the color lasts and lasts through eating, drinking, kissing, etc. Nachos, it even lasted through eating nachos!! 

At no point while wearing this product did my lips feel dried out (like some long lasting lip colors can do), or get clumpy. The color remained smooth and my lips remained moisturized.

The cost is approximately $6-7 depending on where you shop, and is a super great price for the quality of product you are getting.

Thanks for reading! ๐Ÿ™‚ If you have a long-wearing lip color you think is also amazing, let me know in the comments below!
