Lip Of the Day - OCC Lip Tar in Strumpet

Hi Bellas,

It's fall and I'm really loving the opportunity to break out deeper lip colors. You may notice that in my recent videos I've been playing up my lips more. It's an easy way to get a dramatic look. Today's Lip of the Day features an OCC lip tar that i'm in love with. I wore it in my last video - Sally Beauty/Beauty Supply Store Haul.

Some of My Favorite MAC Discontinued Products

Hi Bellas,

I try to mix up my posts...FOTDs, client looks, tutorials, reviews and then I like to sprinkle some random themed ones.  I thought today it would be fun to do something a little different.  I'm featuring some of my favorite MAC limited edition products.  The sad thing is that MAC has so many limited edition collections and we fall in love with products only to have them discontinued.  If you can find some of these leftover at your local MAC store, CCO, or online, I highly recommend them!
