NYC 16 Hr Smooch Proof Lip Stain: Review

Hello Divas!!!

It is time again to review a beauty product and the one I have chosen this time is the NYC 16 Hr smooch proof lip stain.

I bought this in the Forever Fuschia because it looked like a cool color that would work for me. I did not read the name but went with the color I could see through the cap and it actually turned out pretty good.

I have not used this a true stain in the sense that you are supposed to apply it to bare lips first to get the desired effect. I actually applied over my lip balm and got a creamy but shiny effect. I let it dry a bit and then applied more lip balm over the stain and ended up with a really nice look.

It does wear off after about 4 hours because of the creamy base of the lip balm so you do have to reapply if you use this method.

I will try it on bare lips some time in the future to see if I can get some longer wear out of it but I just feel better about using it over a lip balm because lip stains tend to be very drying!!!!

Tinkerbell....The Original Diva

Hello Divas!!!

I just wanted to share one of the original Divas with you all. You may remember her from your childhood as sweet and cute...but she was really a demanding diva in her own right.

This darling diva is Tinkerbell!!!

She is sassy.

She is sexy.

She is classy.

I love my Tinkerbell!!!

What To Wear This Summer: Wedges

Hello Divas!!

Summer is officially here and it is time to break out all those fresh, cool clothes and show off your hot style.

I think one of the hottest styles for the summer is the wedge shoe.

I did not like shoes very much....strange for a diva I know.  Now I am just totally in love with shoes, especially wedges. I am not a fan of high heels but when you wear wedges you can have a high platform but still be comfortable to run in them.

I saw these at Target and I am DYING to get my hands on a pair this summer:

The person who invented high heels is a torturer but the person who invented wedges is a GENIUS.

Fashion On A Grad School Budget

Hello Divas!!!

I will be going back to grad school this fall and I will be starting off BROKE and then living the life of a broke graduate student.

I am not sure what the dress code is on my campus especially for my department, which is in business. I know that business students tend to be a little more dressy than other departments.....but then again I am thinking that it is grad school and they expect us to be poor.

While I do not dress in pajamas or torn jeans like some people, I certainly do not want to wear flip flops to class when everyone else is all dressed up.

I will soon have a post on basic fashion while on a grad school budget, just as soon as I see the general dress code for my department and my classes!!!!

Why No Makeup Posts?

Hello Divas!!

Some of you have been asking why I do not do any posts about makeup when this is a fashion and beauty blog.

The reason I do not do those posts is simple.

I don't wear makeup!!!!!

Gasp...yes I know I call myself a diva in training, and I have a site about beauty and fashion..but I don't wear makeup.

I do wear nail polish and lip gloss and once in a while I wear some mascara. Other than that I don't do the
-bronzer etc routine.

I have been blessed with fabulous skin (from all the compliments I get....not being vain) and I just decided that I like my look with only lip gloss.

It is just easier for me to put on some lip gloss and occasional mascara and be perfectly fine with the way I look. I know that makeup enhances what you already have and makes your look pop.

I have been told on the few occasions (weddings, graduation etc) that I do wear makeup that I look SO much better. I still just do mascara and lip gloss for my everyday look and it takes me less than a minute to do my face.

It also saves me from looking totally weird when I don't have time to 'put on a face' because people are accustomed to seeing me with just lip gloss!!!!

I admire those who take the time to put on their makeup every day but I do think makeup is individual and we each do what works for OUR separate case!!!
