The New Revlon ColorStay™ Eye Collection and Kiss™ Balm

1Check out these amazing new ColorStay ™ Eye Collection products, and the Revlon Kiss™ Balm while you are at it! The Revlon Kiss™ Balm keep your lips super hydrated and kissable as we move from fall into the cool temps. What I love most about the Kiss™ Balm: it is filled with SPF 20 and the hydrating formula is infused with natural fruit oils.

I have never been a big cake-on-makeup kind of girl. I love the beach vibe, all natural kind of glow, so my daily makeup routine reflects just that – a little on the eyes, a touch of sunscreen-filled foundation, and a bit on the lips. My top priority, though, I must admit, is a good brow + popping the eye in the most natural sense.


2016_10_28_lolomag5-262-editI can’t get enough of the Revlon ColorStay™ Eye Collection. The ColorStay™ Brow Pencil is longwearing and waterproof (yes, please!) + it has the most perfect blending spoolie brush. The unique angled tip allows for fast and easy brow definition, too.

1The ColorStay 2-in- 1 Angled Kajal™ Liner makes the smoky liner application oh so easy and oh so natural with the angled liner and the brush used for blending. Did I mention it’s waterproof? So. Much. Love.

2016_10_28_lolomag5-331-editTo make the set even better, the ColorStay™ Crème Eye Shadow is waterproof and lasts up to 24 hours. No joke. My favorite colors are the Praline (for a natural, bronzy look) and the Cherry Blossom for a blush tone. Not to mention, these are so easily blendable! It stays! The brilliance of it all: there is a brush built into the cap for fast, easy, and mess-free application.

Revlon: Glow on the Go


2016_08_22_lolomag3-35-edit Working from home has a lot of perks, but it also tends to create an even busier schedule as errands pile up and brand meetings and blogger lunches seem to fill up the days quite quickly. What has been a complete life saver for me is my Revlon PhotoReady Insta-Fix™ Highlighting Stick. It gives an instantly retouched look when you need a little mid-day refresher, and the magic is in a mistake-proof stick (party emoji!). It is one of those, lightweight pull-out-of-your-purse-easy-application type products. You can use the stick to highlight your cheekbones, cupids bow, eyebrow, the corner of your eye, and your collarbone. I feel like we all need more of these in our lives! Agreed?


2016_08_22_LoLoMag3-41-Edit2016_08_22_LoLoMag3-65-EditP.S. Two color options are available. The Pink Light is optimal for light to medium skin tones, and the Gold Light is a peachy shade that is optimal for medium to deep skin tones. The one that looks best on  my skin is the Gold Light.

Three loves of this product:

  1. The PhotoReady Insta-Fix™ Highlighting stick is mistake proof.
  2. It is easy to use!
  3. It enhances your best features even on the go!

I am so excited to hear what you think about these products! I would love to hear your comments below!

my makeup go-tos.

If I’m honest, I would rather spend an hour on my hair and five minutes on my makeup when I am getting ready. My sister has always been so talented at the art of blending eye shadows and making your face a masterpiece, so my focus remained on curling my hair with a straightener and round brushing my locks. I have started getting more into makeup the last few years, although I generally prefer more of a natural look. Buuuut…I still have my all time favorites (some I use every day; some are saved for special occasions).
Clockwise from the left:

‘Diorskin Airflash’ Spray Foundation: I wear this on night’s when I want my make-up to last. This makes your skin look like porcelain yet still looks natural. I use this buffer brush to blend it into my skin.

MAC Eye Brow Brush: Filling in eye brow gaps and naturally shaping them makes a world of difference.

MAC Paint/Brown Script Eyeshadow/Sketch Eyeshadow: Putting on this MAC paint will keep your eyeshadow in tact all night. These are my go-to shades that I wear to a dinner out with friends, a fun event, or a work meeting.

MAC Select Cover Up: On the sleepiest day, this will make you look fresh and bright. I use this brush to apply.

Chantecaille ‘Hi Definition’ Perfecting Powder: I always put this on after my everyday foundation using this brush, and it makes your look skin flawless.

MAC Powder Blush/MAC Bronzing Powder: Most of the time I use only the bronzer, but at times I use the blush on my cheek bones to add some color and dimension.

my every day favorites.

obsession of the day: sheer lip liner

In preparation for a beachy trip this past summer, I was on the hunt for a perfect pink lipstick (MAC Snob is amaze). This seemingly simple task turned out to be better than that burst of excitement when you find the right shade for the following reason: I was introduced to the ‘Contour Fill’ lip pencil.


In fact, it made my general packing list in the notes section on my iPhone. If it makes that list, it’s one of my can’t-live-withouts. The reasons why it is oh so good: #1 It’s Chantecaille, a brand that will never steer you wrong. #2 This lip liner works for anyone because it’s shadeless. #3 It actually works! (my favorite YSL lipstick doesn’t bleed anymore). Hooray!
