I am not a make up artist. If I've never said that before, let me say it now!
I try and try and try to do really awesome things with make up and it never looks as good as the pictures I see online.
With that disclaimer, let me tell you about my favorite product I've ever gotten in my Ipsy bag. It's called Nude and the brand is Mellow. I've never heard of it before, but I am going to need to buy every single one of their creamy matte lip colors. (Check them out here.) The formulat is so smooth. So airy. And it takes one coat, but two for an extra pop!
I put the mauve-y pink on my lips and straight up had a moment. The feeling started deep down in my belly and worked it's way out. I want this to be my signature color. I want to wear it everyday. I just need it in my life!
To keep it real, I will note the lipstick leaves lip-prints behind. It also rubbed right off on a my napkin with little to no effort. But let's be honest...who wouldn't want lip-prints if the color is this fucking fantastic?! And sometimes I'm okay with an easy removal process when it comes to lipsticks, ya know?!
