WOC Lipstick review: MAC Cremesheen dare you

Hey loves, 

Today's Review : Mac 'Dare You' Cremesheen Lipstick 

I'm starting to go through my makeup stash, swatching and reviewing my products.  

A little about me & my reviewing style: I am a college aged, African-American female. I have both golden and red tones to my skin depending on the time of year (redder in the summer, more gold in the winter). I use Smashbox HD foundation in Dark.  For reference, my closest MAC shade is NC50, it is my concealer color. I live on a college (tiny) budget and I will rate my products on affordability and if I feel the product is worth the money. 

Retail Price: $14.50

Product description: (Cremesheen) Creme-based lipstick that imparts bright full color, with a soft and supple shine. (Color) Deep brown red. 

Color: (5/5) This “deep brown red” lippie my first (and only) MAC lipstick. I went to the Georgetown store looking for a red that wasn’t too out there, and found this. Dare You stood out to me because of its deeply pigmented, sophisticated color and the gold/orange undertone. I love warmer shades and I really love the color of this because I can rock a red-red lip with it or a subtler red-bronze/gold look. I get complemented when I wear it, so that also helps me build the courage to rock it more often.

See the subtle gold shimmer?

Texture: (5/5) Dare You is a smooth and satiny cremesheen. The texture feels light although the color is bold. It feels soft and moisturizing, but I like to use a gloss to keep moisture in. With this lippie, you lips cant be more than only slightly chapped because it will call you out! (ol)  But that has more to do with the red color than the texture. The soft shimmer camouflages minor    imperfections.

 I love this lippie, and I recommend it as a safe bet for a red lip. The color is rich rather than being loud so it easy to rock. And the quality and feel of the product shows that its worth the price, you get what you paid for wit this one.  I’m sure I’ll love it even more when I start my teaching career; it’s my power color!

My goals for 2012, a 2 month update

I'll admit it, its been hard to keep up with my goals for the year so far. I think it's partly because I have not loked back at them since I wrote it...I definitely need to implement a visual reminder. But let's go back and see what I have and have not done.

1. I have writen all but one of my papers on time. I can still achieve this
2. I still procrfastinate, but its only gotten to a stressful leel once.

Overall there is still hope for me here. On the other hand, I have accomplished more then ever on campus in planning my first event so I'm proud and can say I accomplished something in the past 2 montss.

I'm failing here! Leaving my schedule open and going to excersize ehen I feel like it is not woking for me. I need to modify my goal to make it more specific because 1x a week is generally ineffective.

Financial Goals
1. My I have paid the bulk of my discover bill down but I'm not there yet.
2.  I have only been able to stick to my beauty budget, its been so hard to figure out how to factor in unexpected expenses.  Does anyone else have the problem where if you have a plan like to spend only $50, and you have to dip into it, youll spend that 50 anyway. I'm way too defiant to budget. (Something to work on)

Overall, I realize I'm a little off track, but I can still recover at this point. I need to focus mainly on my purchasing.

Nail Art: Cheetah

Hey Y'all, 

This is a nail design I did over winter break. I really waned to buy a Konad nail art kit, because i wanted leopard nails. Since I didn't have any money, I decided to try to make it myself. It wasn't that hard when I got a hang of the nail art brush. I'm definitely going to try more designs in the future :) 

This was dont with $2 Wet'N'Wild polishes that I already owned!
