My name is Mikayla! I'm a 22 year old University Graduate with a passion for all things beauty. I stumbled into the online beauty community a year ago and have been obsessed with youtube videos and blogs ever since. After watching hundreds of videos over the past year I figured it was about time I joined the community and posted my own thoughts in my own little space. I'm also recently graduated, unemployed and headed for college in September.

I really enjoy all things beauty, and I really like telling my friends what I think about products so writing them down just felt natural. To me, make up isn't something that you wear to make yourself look prettier, it's something you do on yourself for yourself. It has the power to give you strength to tackle a rough day, the courage to find your inner confidence and sparkle like every girl is meant too.

Other than beauty, I love fashion. Beauty and Fashion are the keys to my heart, along with a great deal. I'm all about a decent deal, and budget shopping is my favourite.

I can't wait to start this journey with the internet and all of you!

Blogtober Day 6: Bold Lips

Wednesday, 8 October 2014

October means the official start of fall, even if the official start is September 21. It just feels like fall, and to be fall really is the time for bold dark lips, dark nail polish and lots of layers. 

Recently, I received this lipstick in my September Ipsy glam bag, and while I am not usually a dark lip, or even a bold lip type of person, but I am intrigued by the colour. 

It's a deep red matte lipstick, and usually I tend to steer very far away from darks like this. However I really like this one. I've worn it sheered out a couple times, by just using my finger and creating more of a stain, but I also really like it as just a lipstick. 

It is really moisturizing and not dehydrating on the lips, and it has good staying power. I have to say that Ipsy really picked a great product with this one, and I will for sure by more of the Hikari liptsicks as they are very affordable (this one is valued at just $13). 

What lipsticks are you loving for fall?
