When Eyes and Lips LOC: LOC Beauty Review

Testing, testing. Hello? Are all seven of my followers present for this blog post? You’ll have to excuse my failure to post. I’ve been livin’ the dream. I guess if dreams involve grad school homework and cosmetic retail holiday shifts. Maybe that’s more of a nightmare. Oh, but I have also been performing in a fun show too! To sum it up, I’ve been busy. Time for some beauty babble…

Let’s talk about the new LOC collection exclusively for Birchbox. 

This is the One and Done Shadow Stick in “Impress Me”  
Hey there, short stuff. You’re kind of sexy. 💁

This shadow pencil is very sexy but indeed very short. There is not too much in the amount you get. Despite the length, it packs a powerful punch of color that lasts. So that makes up for the size. Jeez, this post could chock full of innuendos, but I’m going to keep it classy. Ish. 

Swatch Time!

The shade is described as a rose-gold with purple tones. It looks nice alone, but even prettier as a base for plum shadow. 

This shadow stick is for sale exclusively on for 10.00. They sell multipacks of three for $25.00 or the entire set of 5 shades for $36.00. 

I first learned about this brand when I received a sample of the Vibrant Matte Lipstick in Glam Life. (See below)

  I like the lipstick but it is even tinier than the shadow and it retails for 8 dollars. The texture is super dry so you need to wear a primer. Despite the size and feel, it does look pretty on. 

If you like these two colors, I suggest you purchase the set called Royal Flush for $23.00.  It includes the Impress Me for eyes, Glam Life for lips, and a second shade for eyes, On Point, which is a silvery taupe. 

All are available at

Till next time…



Clinique Days of the Week Lipstick Set

If I could make my own lipstick set based on my inventory of lipsticks, it would be called Days of the Century. Friends, family, and the seven people who read this blog know that I’m drowning in lipstick. I just can’t get enough! So when this set came to the counter I just had to play with it. 

Featured left to right:

Long Last Lipstick in Monday Mojo, Take-On Tuesday, Welcome Wednesday, Throwback Thursday, Finally Friday, Sassy Saturday, and Sweet Sunday. 

I find it interesting that the Monday color is one of my favorite colors. This goes against the general lameness of Mondays. 

Super quick selfie at the counter for the purpose of demonstration. 

I enjoy all of these colors, but I’m not sure I could pull of Sweet Sunday without looking like a pale zombie. That’s not very sweet. 

This set retails for 39 dollars and I would be very happy to receive it as a gift. Wait, is that a Christmas hint? Because Sephora has 20% next week and Lord and Taylor will be in gift soon. Just sayin’. 

Till next time…

Smooches! 💋
