Hello loves! My birthday celebration continues, as I am headed to see Sarah McLachlan tomorrow night in Charleston, SC! One of my besties treated me to tickets and hotel (thanks Amie!). I am super excited for the concert and hangin’ with mah gurl! And Charleston in the springtime is absolutely lovely!
I’ve had these Maybelline The Buffs lipstick in Untainted Spice and Espresso Exposed for a while. I saw a display in Walmart when they were newly launched, picked up a couple (they were on sale!), put them in a drawer, and forgot about them. Tragic really, as they are so my colors!
The Buffs is a part of the Color Sensational line that includes Vivids, Reds, and a whole range of other shades. The Buffs is more focused on nudes. Not my favorite hue, but I chose the darker options. If you are a nude lip fan, definitely check out this collection! I love the Color Sensational lipsticks because they are super pigmented, shiny, non-drying, and really comfortable to wear. And the formula is consistent throughout the line. Since it is a shiny/moisturizing lipstick, you do have to reapply frequently.
For me, Untainted Spice is a great nude. About as nude as I like to go. It looks super dark in this photo, but the two initial pics are a better representation of the shade.
Espresso Exposed is the darkest shade the line offers. It is a great raisin/berry color.
Depending on your complexion, Untainted Spice could be a great ’90s brown.
I love Untainted Spice! Great MLBB for me!
Espresso Exposed is a great raisin shade. Of course, it’s springtime. But I will still wear this lipstick!
Before I go, can we please talk about these lashes!!!! I hate doing closeups, and y’all know I am not a makeup artist. But I just had to mention them.
LAWD my wrinkles!!!!
These are Red Cherry #43. I order them from Lady Moss. They are cheaper than Ardell lashes, and I’ve gotten 10+ uses from these so far. Great quality for the price. Maybe not for everyday, but they are awesome! They are super easy to use, and the band is perfect even if you don’t use liner. And they offer more conservative lashes, as well as more glam than these. This is not sponsored at all. Just wanted to let you know about these great lashes!
Again, thanks for reading! xoxo
