Marin's Bridal Trial

It was so great to finally meet Marin last Friday at her bridal trial. We had been chatting a few months prior to meeting about our upcoming trial. Marin lives 5 hours away in Ithaca and was planning a trip to Long Island where she could come for her makeup and hair trials. Marin, another self-proclaimed crazy cat lady (like myself) was so easy to get along with. She wanted a bold lip (which I was all about!) and we determined that this shade of Bobbi Brown's Red was bomb on her. We did a more natural eye to compliment the boldness of the lip color. Ladies, never fear the bold lip! Remember that at your wedding you're the star and there's nothing wrong with looking the part. Red is so classic too and will never go out of style πŸ’‹ I am excited that Marin asked Rebelle With a Gloss to join her on her September wedding day! 🌼🌻

Christian Louboutin's New Lipstick ~ Makeup or Breakup?

Happy New Year Ladies and Gents! It's been a while since I added any posts. I took the blog section away for a bit but I'm bringing it back! In the New Year I would like to take time to blog more, amongst other things. What's everyone's resolutions this year?

What did you do for New Year's Eve this year? I was at a family party and we played a dice game called Bunco. It was pretty cool. Yours truly won one of the prizes and earned $25 - watch out now! ;)

For my New Year's makeup look I wanted to center it around the most fabulous lipstick I received for Christmas. Christian Louboutin's Rouge Louboutin Velvet Matte Lip Colour. Look how gorgeous this thing is. The packaging is amazing. The color I got was the classic red bottom color Rouge Louboutin. So gorgeous and classic.

Now, because it's Christian Louboutin I held it to high expectations. I will say though although it's not advertised to be a lipstick with staying power, it lasted on me all night. I only retouched once and I didn't really even need to. With me, that's important in a lipstick. The other important aspect is smudging. I absolutely HATE when I buy a lipstick and it smears all over my face. What's the point? This lipstick did not smudge and I was very happy about it. The only thing that I think would hold someone back from purchasing this lipstick is the price. It costs $90, yeah I know. That's a lot of money for a lipstick. But it's Christian Louboutin and that comes with the territory. If you're a lipstick enthusiast, you love Christian Louboutin, and you can afford your bills this month, then I say go for it! It's definitely a good luxury lipstick. It's a definite MAKEUP for me.

Did you do your makeup all fun for New Year's? I would love to see pics or hear deets in the comments section below! Happy New Year, everyone!
